Maybe it's the rapid humidity or the fact that Basketball Wives is back on the air (I remain devoted, despite no longer working for VH1), but I'm in the mood for some bitchiness, and one of yesterday's Judge Judy episodes delivered. The case that the clip above concluded involved a woman who sells knock-off bags and belts suing her friend for effectively stealing the counterfeit merchandise. Judy didn't take the plaintiff to task for selling knock-offs, which was weird, but even weirder was the post-ruling exchange. And the weirdest thing about that is how rare it is -- with the amount of mouthy people that go in and out of that courtroom set, you'd think more would argue as they made their way out. Every indication suggests that's just how they live.
Anyway, my favorite thing about this is that it's basically a fight about semantics. The central question is: what makes a diva? Class, apparently. Not stealing your friend's knock-off bags and belts and throwing them in the garbage, particularly. I love that they both agree that being a diva is a good thing, though. As long as they're both on the same page re: divadom, I think it's possible for them to mend their friendship. I hope so for them but especially for us given the potential for future televised cases!
