I do have SOME standards, I don't watch them all. I've never seen an episode of the Kardashians nor do I have any idea why Honey Boo Boo is on the air.
But give me some Housewives of just about ANY city (except Washington DC and now New York is off of my radar) and I will tell you all about the ladies, their men, their kids, who fights with whom and who is right and wrong. And don't get me started on my Andy Cohen! I want him to be MY gay BFF!!
I know absolutely nothing about fashion. I tend to buy my clothes at the Mart. Wal or K, it doesn't matter to me. But heaven knows I won't miss an episode of Project Runway! I love me some Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum! I just got started on another train wreck, I mean reality show, on Lifetime. Pretty Wicked Moms. Are you kidding me? Vapid isn't a strong enough word. But I love it anyway.
There's not many cooking reality shows that I don't watch, even though I can barely boil water myself. America's Worst Cook? Love it. Hell's Kitchen? Can't miss it. Top Chef? Loving my Tom Colicchio!
I could go on and on and on. I haven't even started on Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers and a slew of other reality TV shows that I waste my time on. Do you see why I spend so much money on cable/satellite dish access? I do have a sickness!
But the worst one I watch . . . the biggest train wreck on MY opinion . . .
The Bachelorette!!! Or the Bachelor!!! Both equally as terrible!
You get one single gal or guy, and then bring 25 single guys or gals around to try to compete to see who gets to profess their love for the bachelorette or bachelor and propose marriage! I've been watching this show for a long time. It's rare of one of the "contestants" on this show isn't educated. So you have 25 educated, beautiful people, making an ass of themselves on national TV for their 15 minutes of fame. C'mon, people! Is this country great or what?!!!
Even though I bad talk this show, I always pick out MY favorites, and I know who should be kicked to the curb every week and who should be given a rose to stay. And, every year, once the show has wrapped up and the inevitable press release comes out that says the latest couple has agreed to part ways and they are not getting married, I always tear up just a little. Hey! Who of you that watch the show didn't get upset when Allie and Roberto broke up??? Aww, that was horrible! I'm surprised that Sean and Catherine haven't announced THEIR break up yet! But wait for it . . . it's coming! Mark my words!
Which leaves us with this season of the Bathelorette. I have had my front runners since the beginning of the season and honestly, Michael was right at the top. He's a little cutie, a federal prosecutor, and seemed like a nice guy. I was SHOCKED when he was sent packing on the last episode. I thought for sure that Desiree has lost her mind when she kept one of the other guys and let Michael go.
Until his exit interview in the mini van.
He called his Mom.
He told Mom something along the lines that Mom's not going to get to meet Desiree after all, and why does this always happen to him????
Um, dude. A federal prosecutor and you call your Mom to cry on her shoulder??? On national TV? Hmm, maybe Desiree got it right after all. I'm not too pumped on any of the guys that are left, so it really doesn't matter which of the final four she has get down on one knee to propose to her. But I'll still keep watching. Maybe there will be more TV gold of someone calling Mommy to cry that he got dumped. We can only hope.
Tune in tonight. You know I'll be there!
