Is it Real?

Ok, I'll confess....I have become a reality TV show addict.  It all started innocently enough.  I was flipping through the channels one night, and happened upon Top ChefAs there was nothing else on, I thought why not?  I became almost immediately hooked!  It just took a little taste, and I wanted more...So every Wednesday, there I was, propped up, watching Bravo for about 6 hours straight, seeing who was coming out on top, and who would have to "pack their knives and go home."  And who doesn't think Tom Colicchio isn't one of the sexiest men alive?  And that Padma is one of the most beautiful women in the world?  To me this is the best reality and cooking show out there.  The cream of the crop, so to speak.

  

And, of course, Fabio Vivani is going to take season 5?  Ok, am I right?  That's what I thought.



I love this guy.  I don't care if he is the best chef, he has everything else your heart could desire....ahhhhh.....

Anywho, after watching Top Chef, I decided to check out something called The Bad Girls Club.  Where do they find these girls???  People really act like that?  God, I'm getting old.



Then because I love Sharon Osborne I got hooked on Rock of Love Charm School, and, again, I think, where do they find these girls?? (From Bret Micheals and Flavor Flav? I guess...their reality shows I do not watch....)
 

Now, every Sunday you see my ass perched in front of the TV watching Tyra Banks and America's Next Top Model.
 

So, I'm thinking, I must need more drama in my life, or I prefer my drama vicariously!  But the more of this you watch, the more you want to watch.  Now, I find myself wondering what weirdness Steve Adler is going to get up to in Sober House, and why does Dr. Drew let him get away with all this crap??  I mean, if he showed up at my sober house high as a kite with needles in his pockets, "Oh, I haven't worn those pants in 10 years..." give me a break!!  I would have made him go through rehab again. He's not ready to be sober yet.  I don't think so, anyway.  He has to want this from his gut!  And good old Dr. Drew, blaming everything on good ole "Mama".  I thought we had gotten past that little bit of psycho-babble?  And please, don't get me started on Jeff Conaway!!  Just saying....



There! My secret vice is out. I have become a reality show junky.  Too bad I'm not a celebrity. But, yet, I feel so freaking free!!*







*I have been watching PBS Masterpiece Classics, too, so I'm not completely without discernment and good taste....And I love Black Adder!!

At last a post from you that I can't relate to... yay! I hardly watch TV these days used to in the pre-internet era.

I don't know if its good or bad that you can't relate to me...oh, well, I'll pick good. I remember I used to use my computer all the time, but lately not as much. Used to love yahoo chat....

I can't help saying this, but the thought occurred to me that if the camera was rolling in your life, it'd be a lot like the old sit com, "Mama's Family", at times. You remember that one? Vicki Lawrence from the Carol Burnett show was Mama. She lived with her son and his blond vivacious wife? I read this post and the one above it about the dog under the smokehouse, and laughed.

So you see, you ARE a celebrity. Just roll the camera, or better yet, tell us more.

Spado, I do love being compared to Vicki Lawrence in Mama's family...at least it wasn't Carol Burnett's character. But you are right. I've been thinking of starting my own reality series...Trailer Park Happenings...or something equally stupid. I swear, someone would watch it. At least once.
