Over the past year, I've definitely become a huge fan of Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. They're just so down-to-earth, seemingly normal, and both have a great sense of humor. (And they're just so darn cute together it's tough to resist rooting for them.)
But that's why I can't help but feel a bit shocked and puzzled over a tweet Catherine posted on Christmas Eve -- which will probably be viewed by some as pretty darn offensive.
Are you ready to hear this one?
Apparently there are certain games Catherine never had the pleasure of playing until she started hangin' with the Lowe clan.
Learning to play dominoes with the new family. And in 32 days, I'll be converted into an official white person.— Catherine Giudici (@clmgiudici) December 24, 2013
She's going to be "converted into an official white person?" What the hell?
First of all -- I never thought of dominoes as something only white people enjoyed playing, but apparently it's a stereotypical past time for us.

And second -- why in the heck does Catherine think she has to turn into someone else the minute she becomes Mrs. Sean Lowe? Sure ... she'll be taking his name -- but that isn't exactly going to change her ethnicity. I sincerely hope she doesn't feel like she has to become a different person after getting hitched -- and I also hope Sean isn't giving her the impression that she's expected to change, or anything like that.
I'm sure she posted it as nothing more than a joke -- but something about the way she worded it just seems so ... off.
Bottom line -- Sean chose Catherine because he loved her for who she is -- not because of who she'll "become" once they're man and wife. Or at least that's what we can probably assume based on how happy they appear to be together. And if that's not the case? Maybe she should think about taking a step back and reevaluating things before January 26th rolls around.
Do you think Catherine's tweet is offensive?
