Melissa and Heidi: On the radio: Heidi dishes on the rich moms who hired disabled people so their kids could cut lines at Disney World.

Dear Manhattan Moms,
Just when I started to second guess if I was giving my all as a mom and role model, your appalling behavior launched my self esteem into the stratosphere.
So I might not make homemade meals, keep my house as tidy as I’d like or attend every recital, game or party imaginable — but at least I’m not YOU.
After reading a recent New York Post article about how you hired disabled people to attend Disney World with your group so you didn’t have to wait in line, I just about lost it.
Let me get this straight. You paid $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day, so you could cut people in line? What’s even more appalling is that you shamelessly bragged, “You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge,’’ and, “This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”
I don’t know who I’m more disgusted with: you, the slime of the earth, or Dream Tours Florida for allegedly organizing the hiring of disabled people as black-market Disney guides.
I’m going to go out on a stretch here and guess that you think paying for immoral privileges will make your children love you more? That it’s somehow justified? Mmmmm Hmmmm.
How did the boob jobs and Botox injections work out as a way of guaranteeing your husbands love you more? (OK, I’m making total assumptions here, forgive me.)
Nothing gets under my skin worse than people who believe they are better than others simply because they have more.
Thank you for proving that, no matter how shiny you might be on the outside, your depths of ugliness are unfathomable.
I hope the shorter wait lines were worth it, losers.
I also hope you can use the money you saved at Disney to invest in future therapy for your kids.
I’m usually the last one to cast judgment on other moms. To me, however, this is simply disgusting.
How do we expect our children to grow up to become caring, compassionate people when we live in a society where “renting out the disabled” is not only viewed as acceptable by adults, but also deemed a deserved perk for the super wealthy?
