Last night on The Hills Lauren randomly dashed off to Italy without the video cameras, leaving her dumfounded posse to their own devices. This meant that Audrina and JustinBobby hung out with Heidi and Spencer, and that conniving ex-methhead Stephanie went on a date with Lauren's recent ex Doug. While discussing the situation at dinner with Brody, Lauren asks if he thinks it was wrong of Doug to ask Stephanie out. Brody says, "Well, I think boys will be boys, but Stephanie's supposed to be one of your best friends."
Typical. Even though Doug initiated the date, and is clearly manipulating the feelings of Lauren's best friend as a revenge tool, it's Stephanie who gets blamed for the act. Women always get the shitty end of the stick in regards to this: when men behave badly, we're just supposed to chalk it up to biology. When women behave badly, they pay mentally and emotionally, with the most palpable vengeance channeled from other women.
