Bar Refaeli is one of the most famous models in the world and dates A-list actor Leonardo DiCaprio. She is wealthier than you can imagine and better-looking than anyone who’s ever touched you. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is on an MTV reality show, a format he used to embrace a negative stereotype and display a certain amount of pigheaded charm.
We expect certain things out of our celebrity culture, specifically: different tiers of credibility and fame shouldn’t intermingle. Scarlett Johansson won’t make an appearance on “Deal or No Deal.” Martin Scorsese isn’t going to cast one of the girls from “The Bachelor” in his next movie. And for the love of God, the heavenly plain of Bar Refaeli’s thighs shouldn’t be touching the Situation’s neck for an Interview Magazine photo shoot or any other reason. I don’t even want them in the same room, much less the same photo.
