Now, from the world of television, ABC’s prime-time soap called Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 features a lying, manipulative woman—and apparently it’s supposed to be comedy. Here’s what Yahoo! News reports:
“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23” stars Krysten Ritter as an unpredictable New York live-wire who bullies her naive Midwestern roommate. Created by Nahnatchka Khan, one of three women credited on the writing team of six, the show seems to take stereotypes to heart (at least in the first two episodes): A woman who seems sweet and helpful at first glance is really an untrustworthy snake who’s friendly with men and cruel to women, stealing her roommate’s money in one episode and sleeping with her fiance in the next.
“It’s very clear that she’s actually a sociopath,” says Andi Zeisler, co-founder and editorial director of Bitch Magazine. “It’s not like here’s a strong, confident woman and she’s head bitch in charge. She’s actually a sociopath and she treats people horribly.”
