Has Lindsay changed?

I have several guilty pleasures when it comes to television.

I watch the worst, trashiest, most classless reality shows out there...and I love every minute of it. We're talking every franchise of The Real Housewives, The Bad Girls Club, Vanderpump Rules, Mob Wives and most recently, the OWN Network's docu-series: Lindsay.

Lindsay follows the fresh-out-of-rehab Lindsay Lohan as she moves from the bad influences and detrimental L.A. club scene back to her roots in New York City.

We get a look inside her life through her eyes and through the perspective of her personal assistant, sober coach, life coach, parents and the production staff of the series, as they all deal with Lindsay's readjustment to the real world without drugs or alcohol. Sounds intense, right? It is.

I enjoyed Mean Girls as much as the next guy, but I was never a crazy fan of LiLo. This was partially because of the 'diva' rumors that started to spread after she left her Disney days on her quest to become a 'real' actress. She never evoked much sympathy from the public because she came off as a spoiled brat who wanted to reap all of the benefits of Hollywood life without putting in the hard work. She was becoming more notorious on the party scene than gaining recognition for her film work. It was pretty sad, but no one cared. She was constantly in and out of court and rehab and people wanted her to get her just desserts. She became the villain.

Know your value

It's not arrogant, narcissistic or egotistical to know your value. By value, I mean to know what you're worth whether it be in a friendship, job, relationship or a leadership role of any kind.

And if people don't know or appreciate your value, get out of dodge. Immediately.

I would venture to say that we've all felt ignored, under appreciated, taken advantage of or just plain poorly treated at some point in life. People have bad days, it happens - but if it becomes a trend, you must re-evaluate your role and make the necessary changes.

For example, if you are good friend to somebody, they should be a good friend to you. If that's not the case, the relationship is not mutually beneficial and therefore serves no purpose in your life. Why be trustworthy, loyal and kind to somebody who doesn't do the same in return?

'Pretty Little Liars' is definitely lying to us all

I'm not one bit embarrassed to admit that I regularly watch ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars.

For those of you who don't know, it's basically about four teenage girls in high school being harassed and tormented by an omniscient psychopath, who may very well be their previously-thought-to-be-dead frenemy best friend, or her mother.

The show, in its simplest form, is pretty good; but I have a few qualms that I just have to address.

Sidebar: If you don't watch this show, you probably won't understand the better part of this post. Just a heads up. Continue at your own discretion.

Now I understand this show is fictional - based on a fictional book series, about fictional characters with fictional lives. Got it.
