Erin and Sara Foster on girl squads

Larry King NowJul 15 '16

Erin and Sara Foster are not down with girl squads. The sisters – who skewer #squadgoals on their mock reality show, ‘Barely Famous’ – explain the concept to (an understandably confused) Larry King. Says Erin of the girl groups: “A lot of women tend to use their friendships as a way to further their own career and their status,” with Sara adding, “I would never refer to my friend group as a squad. It’s kind of that ‘you can’t sit with us’ mentality.”

Larry: You tackle girl squads this season. What is girl squads?
Erin: Well here's the thing –
Sara: We have a problem with it.
Erin: No, I just, listen I think social media has become sort of bragging rights for your life and a lot of people use it as a way to make other people jealous of what you have and that they don't have and I just don't think it's a smart way to use so –
Larry: I've never heard of it so what is it?
Erin: Oh this is the first time you've heard of "squad," #squadgoals, Larry!
Larry: I don't know what you're talking about.
Sara: Larry, are you on Instagram?
Larry: I guess I am.
Sara: You are, someone's on Instagram for you.
Erin: Okay so girls squads are basically you and your girlfriends post a picture and you say that this is your squad. It's just like –
Larry: You two are squads?
Erin: You probably need three or more, right? Maybe three or four more.
Larry: And what are squads do?
Erin: Okay so it's just a group of girls so – 
Larry: So?
Erin: It's just sort of it's – there's a thing called a squad – oh, "squad goals" is basically when someone wishes that they were part of your friend group and it kinda –
Larry: I hear it's very popular.
Erin: It's very popular yeah.
Larry: But not with you?
Erin: No I just think that a lot of women tend to use their friendships as a way to sort of further their own career and their status and we don't really pick our friends based on what we can get –
Sara: What they can do for us, yeah.
Erin: I think that you just I think, if you have an authentic friendship you don't really need to like promote it, you know?
Sara: Yeah.
Larry: So you're not in a girl squad.
Sara: No. We have a lot of friends but I would never refer to my friend group as a "squad." It's kind of that you-can't-sit-with-us mentality and I love making new friends, you make new friends all the time –
Larry: I know the Girl Scouts.
