I want to talk about I Want A Wife so much. Because it related in some phenomenons in China.

Even though that my family don’t agree with this statement, I have heard a lot tragedy about this: many women are treat unfairly. So I want to talk about this a lot.

Most of the episodes of  the reality show follow the lives of Bruce and Kris Jenner’s combined family and focus on the three oldest daughters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian.

2.Bruce Jenner was famous for breaking the world record and winning a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics; moreover, his sons from a  previous marriage, Brandon and Brody, have also appeared on their own reality shows.

3.The Kardashians’ father, the late attorney Robert Kardashian, was famous for representing O.J.Simpson and his daughters gained recognition as American socialites.

4.  Kim came into the national spotlight in 2007 after a sex-tape scandal and resulting Playboy appearance and then the Kardashian fame grew into a profitable reality series.

5. The show depicts the daily routine of the Kardashians. and spin- off shows feature Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe’s attempts to build their line of fashion boutiques.

6.The Kardashians’ behavior at first seemed outrageous. However, they are a loving family.

7. The Kardashians squabble like typical siblingsKris, the mother, holds the family together.

8. Kim’s $10 million wedding to pro basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 as seen by an estimated 10.5 million viewers. However, he marriage lasted only 72 days.

  Since I am from China, I would love to introduce some films which can depict wide Chinese social phenomenons with characters.  And this idea lead me to choose Finding Mr. Right / Anchoring in Seattle. In this movie, the main actress is a mistress of a wealthy corrupt officials.

It is a complicated actress, on the grounds that she resigned from magazine editor for her truelove in heart, but her position for the society is unacceptable.  In China, giving birth to a baby is also complicated, and the pregnant woman needs marriage certificate as necessary step, or her child can never live as a citizenship. So she fled to the US when she had six months of pregnancy with tourist VISA.When the movie is played here, the female starring has always shown a slut gesture – do not respect people and can do anything for money.

But when the film she came to a foreign country experienced a lot of hardships, her boyfriend (married corrupt officials) is not sincere to her. Because in addition to her spent too much money or with other men together, her boyfriend would never contact with her. And this time, she talked to her driver. She said: “She knows she looks very shameless, but she never wants herself to be this way for the jerk she loves, and all the reason why she acts so bitchy is that she wants to give her child a better environment, or she will not come to the United States; Will quit high – paying jobs.When the movie played here, I as the audience, the hearts of different flavors. In the subsequent film plot, she showed her the other aspects of the audience. People love and hate for her with her countless choices .

The background of the film is under the tragedy of an unethical female and legal loophole, but the film is presented in a happy tone. The role of the heroine is difficult to evaluate: she is a third party in the feelings; she is a good mother; she helped her hate people; she can always admit mistakes …

Thousands of readers a thousand Hamlet. So I recommend this film with this controversial female role for everyone.

Original version:

For a long time,  my stepson, Jonathan, was unhappy to have me as part of his family, for he resents  that he didn’t have both biological parents at home. I try to get to know him better, but he would complain  that I invade his privacy. As a new corner, I understood that our relationship will require effort from both of us. It is not enough that I was friendly. Jonathan also has to want us to be friends, and I was not happy with the two of us being strangers, but I can wait for him to feel more comfortable around me.

Original version:

Anne Marie collects antique bottles and loved to turn them into works of art. She will buy bottles if she liked them, but she prefers to find them in the ground. She will find bottles everywhere, but she picked them selectively. However, she has the best lick at construction sites on old farmland, where she spent most of her time. Often, bottles appeared on the surface after a good rain, but they disappear very soon. She will use special tools for excavating bottles, including a set of brushes. She did not want to break the bottles as she removes them from the ground. After finding a new bottle, Anne Marie will add it to her display case and hung out the wall as an artistic piece (Mangelsdorf, 2013,P.411)

Native Song:

Your tears are weak and hurt

The pale bends on the past

The night is too long to become frost

Who is desperate in the attic?

The rain flicked the red window

I was born on the paper by the wind chaos

Dream in the distance into a ray of incense

Wind off your appearance

Chrysanthemum is full of injuries

Your smile has been yellowed

I am in a quiet heart

North wind chaos at night

Your shadow cut continuously

Leaving me alone in the lake

The flowers have fallen into the night

Wicked fate on the troubled

Chou Mo crossing the autumn and winter split two halves

Afraid you can not shake the shore of life

Who’s frantically frantic

I am a body of military clothing roaring vicissitudes

Day slightly bright you sigh softly

Night melancholy so euphemism

Chrysanthemum is full of injuries

Your smile has been yellowed

I am in a quiet heart

North wind chaos at night

Your shadow cut continuously

Leaving me alone in the lake

Chrysanthemum is full of injuries

Your smile has been yellowed

I am in a quiet heart

North wind chaos at night

Your shadow cut continuously

Leaving me alone in the lake in pairs
