Abby & Brittany Ends Without Answering Any Of My Super Important Questions

By  | 

Well,  my favorite reality show about conjoined twins ended last night. This season of Abby & Brittany has been an emotional roller coaster for me and I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about Abby and Brittany Hensel.

And I don't mean feel like am I grossed out or not. Because I'm not. I think some people act like they purposefully got attached to each other and enjoy living their life as two people sharing one body.  As if they willingly choose to be connected at the torso and enjoy a lifetime of staring and pointing.

No I mean like, should they have answered all my personal and intimate questions about their bodies and their relationships and their outlook on marriage and children?

Or do they have a right to privacy? Well, obviously they have a right to privacy. As I type this, I realize I sound like an obsessive stalker from a Lifetime movie who blurs the line between people I watch on reality TV shows and people I have the right to interrogate.

They're 22-year-old women who did a reality show in an effort to stop people from wondering all these questions about them — to prove that they're just as normal as any other 22-year-old college graduates who are trying to figure out their lives.

But that doesn't mean I still don't have all kinds of weird questions about them. So with no further ado, please jump into my twisted brain for a hot sec.

Have they had sex? If so, how did it work exactly? Is it considered a threesome? Do they ever like different guys and make compromises about hooking up, like if we go to 2nd base with Jason, then we're also going to 2nd base with Kyle. Do they ever worry that guys hook up with them for the wrong reasons?

Despite being incredibly positive and optimistic about their situation, how does it affect them when it's easier for their friends to date than it is for them to date?

They talk about getting married one day. Do they plan on marrying one guy or two? If it's one guy, is that bigamy? What if one wants a divorce and one doesn't? Or what if one wants kids and one doesn't?  Can they physically have a baby?

Is TLC already dreaming up (drooling over) show title names about a bigamist conjoined twin wedding. Perhaps a more literal version of Sister Wives. Are the executives at TLC doing voodoo dances in hopes they'll give birth to dwarf twins who want to be Amish? Is the entire TLC network a dream we once had after watching an especially strange episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

And that's just a tip of the iceberg of inappropriate questions I have for the girls that will likely never be answered.

And for good reasons. Abby and Brittany Hensel are normal women and just like other normal women, their personal life is their business.

But that doesn't mean I won't be thinking about it.
