Reality TV Confessions

I don't have cable. That makes some people gasp in horror and for some people it's completely normal. Before I got married this was totally foreign to me and then it took me about 2 years of occasional pity parties to adjust to this cableless life I now lead. I'm content now. It saves money on a bunch of channels we really wouldn't have time to watch anyway.

But when it's summertime....sometimes, well a lot of times, especially at the beginning, a girl (well a teacher) just wants to watch some tv. So then I watch the Today Show for 4 hours (not everyday) and then I thank the Lord for Hulu. Ahhh yes. Internet tv. I really don't know how I'd get through the summer without it.

Last summer I discovered The Real Housewives (of various cities) and thus started my preoccupation with these shows. I have yet to get into Atlanta, but I am thoroughly invested in all other casts. I just love it! I love watching them live their lives. I'm not sure why. It's not like they do anything all that fascinating, unless you count the OBSCENE amounts of money they spend in one episode sometimes fascinating. Maybe that was the original draw for me. But then I got involved in all the drama, and I wanted to see the outcome of all the cat fights. And I was hooked. It didn't take very long.

So today I caught up on the reunion of the NYC cast and I watched the latest episode of the NJ cast. Oh the drama. And I watched the first episode of Bethenny Getting Married. I love that show too! I also have to confess that I got Bethenny's workout dvd and it's REALLY good! It's a 40 minute yoga workout that felt like it really toned my muscles and then a few minutes of weights after that. I think it's worth the $15.

So there. I've confessed my reality tv habits and slight obsessions and my giving in to the whole Bethenny marketing ploy. I feel better now.

I also feel the need to say that I did productive things today like giving my dog a bath, cleaning, washing clothes and yoga. :)

  1. I think a little reality TV is a good thing! I have yet to do the housewives...but I'm a sucker for the Bachelor, Top Chef, So you think you can dance and oh, my fave...Project Runway. It is all a harmless guilty pleasure!
