GLAMOUR list Nine fe­male TV char­ac­ters that we don’t ever want to see again

Glamour (South Africa) - - Front Page -

1 Flaw­less sleeper

Per­fect hair! Full makeup in bed! She’s sup­pos­edly wak­ing up af­ter a drunken one-night stand, but re­ally looks more groomed than we ever do.

4 Ad­mir­ing side­kick

She’s the su­per­hero’s mor­tal pal who’s wowed by his pow­ers, or the cop who can’t crack the case un­til the male de­tec­tive does. In other words: a re­duc­tive cliché writ­ten by a lame man.

7 Ob­sta­cle girl­friend

Our hero­ine’s dream guy is taken. But it’s OK be­cause his girl­friend is an­noy­ingly, and con­ve­niently, naggy. This hardly re­flects well on him – or on our hero­ine when she steals him.

2 Breakup ca­su­alty

She sits cross-legged on the couch in PJS, eat­ing whole tubs of ice cream and cry­ing. We love you, Brid­get Jones, but you have a lot to an­swer for.

5 Adorable goof

She’s sup­posed to be awk­ward, makes the odd blun­der and drops things. So cutely klutzy! Luck­ily, she looks like a su­per­model or she’d be an­noy­ing. Wait – she’s still an­noy­ing.

8 Bitchy-but-not cheer­leader

Hair-toss­ing, eye-rolling and wear­ing the skimpy out­fit 24/7? Doesn’t hap­pen, de­spite what pervy mid­dleaged TV ex­ec­u­tives might be­lieve.

3 Geek who isn’t re­ally that geeky

“I’m such a geek,” she shrugs self-dep­re­cat­ingly. FYI, look­ing cute in spec­ta­cles does not a geek make.

6 Mis­er­ably lonely ca­reer woman

“Love, kids or a ful­fill­ing ca­reer – choose two, lady view­ers, be­cause you can’t have it all.” You can, ac­tu­ally, so bore off with your out­dated views.

9 Tom­boy who gets a makeover

She’s an in­di­vid­ual (gross). Cue mon­tage in which she’s trans­formed into an iden­tikit girlie girl. Then we see she has boobs and boys no­tice her. Yawn.
