'Embrace Your Grace': It's Bad, Just Not the Bad it Hoped to Be

saving-grace-season-2.jpg

TNT has launched Embrace Your Grace, an online community/promotion for season two of Saving Grace.

From the pressie: Embrace Your Grace "[puts] a frank, edgy spin on the typical online community experience ... women can tap into their unfiltered, unapologetic, inner bad girl."

If any woman is ever misguided enough to think her unfiltered, unapologetic, inner sociopath bad girl can be sated with blogs and online videos, she probably won't turn to a TNT-sponsored destination slathered in trailers, trussed in baby blue and beige, and called Embrace Your Grace.

She'll go to Suicide Girls.

It also sends a mixed (and faintly religious) message to run polls that read "Have you ever had an affair with a married co-worker?" (scandale!) alongside blog entries called "The Road to Faith." The site's in no position to serve uber-femmes; unlike the fictional Grace, it seems pretty conflicted about slipping on its own red shoes. (Though it would probably make a charming missionary.)

One incentive to joining the community: Embrace Your Grace will be running a sweepstakes for a 1982 Porsche 911 Carrera SC. Mmmm. Smell that? Nothing says (midlife) crisis like a speedy car that reeks of sex left unhad.

I saw an interview in which Helen Hunt described her character as realistic and like all of us because she possesses several seemingly contradictory characteristics: different faces. Playing off of this aspect of the show and character seems like a better choice for an online community; what better place to show your various faces and try on new identities than on the internet?

saving grace is a show that tells or lets woman fell like it is ok to not be the cookie cutter image that most woman try to be that society has lead us to believe that we should be. i may not always agree with her mehtod's but hey what works for you so be it. i myself am a woman who has been married for 11 years and have 4 kids. i also suffer form m.s. and sereved my country i have never been a polite lady type and like grace it has always served me well.

I embrace my grace by doing what i think is right.

What I think is right is not always lady-like or polite. I am a mom, wife, and a nurse, and a grandmother. But first of all, I am me. I will compromise because not everything is worth dying on the hill for. Kids, dogs, and old folks are. And that's about it. My husband calls me katie-kaboom. And after 33 years, it's ok. You pick your battles. I am a sexual abuse survivor. I have been homeless. I am former addict. I am embracing my grace because God let me stay here to figure it out. And maybe help a few folks along the way.
