DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
HANNAH Montana is over and it may also be just about over for Miley Cyrus. None of us, I’d say, cares and she probably doesn’t either – she has all that money to comfort her. Her family, on the other hand – well, they wouldn’t want that cash cow drying up, I don’t suppose.
This finale is a carefully constructed piece designed to explain to the dim-witted among us – and that would be all of us – that Hannah and Miley aren’t the same person.
In case you were still wondering what it meant when Hannah took her wig off on stage a few weeks ago. I agree, it’s all very confusing. We can only imagine how everyone who knew her felt.
Idiotic, is how. Four seasons and they didn’t twig? Nobody on this show ever struck me as overly bright, but I always thought that might have been down to my prejudice about Billy Ray Cyrus’s hair. And possibly his voice.
Have you heard Miley talk? I can’t get over that. She sings and it’s like all those other Disney creations, then she speaks and it’s like Krusty the Clown’s Vegas act.
Much better if you’re that age – and bearing in mind I have no idea what age that is – to watch Privileged. This is the last episode, a shame because not only does it end on a knife edge – a butter knife maybe – there’s no second series.
So when Megan, the star of the show (tutor to two rich kids in Palm Beach), wakes up in a dishevelled state after Marco the family chef’s controversial (gay) wedding (pulled together by event planner Kathy Griffin), well, we’ll never know how she wound up.
This show is based on a book I’ll never read either, How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, by Zoey Dean. It’s like a younger Gossip Girl, only with less Chanel and more serious ramifications. Privileged GO! 4.30pm Hannah Montana Disney Channel, Foxtel/ Austar, 6.30pm
