Trashy TV Addiction

Dear Reader,

You know that one thing that you really like that you know people are going to think you’re crazy for liking?  Yeah.  For me it’s reality TV.  Most reality TV I don’t like.  Jersey Shore, Big Brother, those I don’t really care about.  But there are some trashy reality TV shows that I love.  Typically I let these stream from Hulu or iTunes so I’m always a little behind.  That’s okay.

My show of the summer, that’s regretably already over, was The Voice.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, another singing contest show.  What was fun about it was the real sense of competition, having the judges become teams that performed and warred against each other.  Thankfully they’re already casting for the next one in 2012 and as far as I know all of the judges are coming back!

The one show that everyone gets very wide eyed about me liking is the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Yes, it’s dramatic and crazy and sometimes it feels like these aren’t even real people but I love the Real Hosuewives series, but since I don’t get cable and I don’t really want to pay for it I picked one series and I’ve stuck with it.  When Danielle had to leave the show I bet there were a lot of us who wondered where the drama was going to come from.  Danielle created such strife on the show that it was unreal!  This season adding Theresa’s family has been just as crazy as last season.  The latest show I saw was the Holiday one.  It seems like Theresa’s family is nothing but crazy.  Tabloids have been talking about a possible divorce on her side, I haven’t looked into it but I hope the rumors aren’t true.  Divorce is never cool.

One of my favorite contest/reality shows has always been So You Think You Can Dance.  It makes me want to take dance lessons, and it might be one of the reasons I started taking belly dance some time ago.  This season my favorite male contestants have already been voted off so I’m floundering for a new male pick, but my favorite on the girls’ side is Melanie.  She’s unreal with how she flings her body around and she just commits herself to the move.

So I blogged before about my challenge to watch The Bachelorette.  I’ve never watched this until this year.  Mostly because I’m skeptical of the idea of finding love on a reality show.  However, I picked a golden season to watch because of all the freaking drama.  I hate to say it, but I don’t think the girl is going to leave with love.  I can’t help but look at her choices and wonder.  Bentley will forever be remembered.  He’s the best reality villian ever.  I was so angry with Ashley for her fixation on this Tool when she has great guys there.  I’m wondering what the next episode will bring.

So, what’s your TV fix?

  1. Mine, like yours, is So You Think You Can Dance. I watched an episode or two of Dancing With The Stars but I gave up because SYTYCD is such an amazing show. It too has me wanting to take dance lessons. I also agree that Melanie needs to win the show, she’s just that good. I used to watch Survivor but I gave up on that several seasons ago. I guess my truly guilty pleasure is “Wipeout” with the crazy obstacles, the water, and the very funny announcing team I really have a great time watching.

  2. I have cut down on TV and don’t watch reality TV since there is just so much garbage. I do watch Wipeout since that is so funny…

    Savannah, I have to agree with you – there is a TON of garbage out there, but for some reason I love some of it. I’m okay with that. I mock myself.
