Real Housewives, My Big Apple!

Do they really want me to refer to all these women as "real housewives?" And why is my husband the one in this house that keeps getting sucked in?

Real Housewives of Orange County, Atlanta, and now New York. I don't know what annoys me most. That they have their own show to show off their self indulgence, egotism, cattiness and nonsense, or that they refer to themselves as "housewives."

I am a housewife. I scrub toilets, wash dishes, mop floors and take out the garbage. I rake my own leaves, do my own interior decorating, and haven't gone shopping in almost a year. The last manicure I had was for my sister in laws wedding (right after I went shopping) and the last meal I had in a restaurant was before Christmas. I pack lunches and cook for my family. A dinner party at my house involves a grill and aluminum foil.

And all of that annoys me because these "housewives" do none of that stuff - at least not on camera, which leads me to believe that they don't do it at all.

But let's address Beloved's bizarre ability to find it everytime it's on. I don't know how it happens but I promise you the only time he lands on Bravo is if it's West Wing or Real Housewives. Could he land on the Johnny Depp episode of Inside the Actor's Studio? Of course not! Does he change the channel as soon as Inside the Actor's Studio comes on? Yes. But if I even look cross eyed at the remote while his Housewives are one he gets all twitchy.

He's going to have my hide for outing him like this
but I find it very
strange and I have to ask. Everyone has a guilty pleasure TV show so in honor of Beloved and his Housewives, what is your guilty pleasure show? The first person to confess to Matlock or Murder She Wrote will win free linky love in next week's Show me the Funny (even if you aren't!).

I have the season's first America's Next Top Model on the DVR waiting for me to find 2 hours to watch it. I do have to admit that I'll watch OC Housewives, and hubby did too for a while. Most of my TV shows I watch, when I actually do watch, are kind of embarrassing. =) I can justify almost all of them in some bizarre fashion. LOL

Thanks to my husband, I am hooked on TLC Monday nights. I love to yell at Kate, enjoy the Roloffs and laugh at the strange things the Duggars do.

The sad part is that I follow a bunch of blogs about Jon+Kate and DH, the one who was watching the show first ends up asking me "so, what dirt do you have NOW?"

HaHa! I hate to admit it but I am addicted to Desperate Housewives. The plot is so lame and unrealistic but I can't NOT watch it. I have to see what happens next.

Mine are the Showtime series. Right now I'm watching Secret Diaries of a Call Girl, United States of Tara, and the Tudors on On Demand.

I would have to be dead to watch Murder She Wrote. Angela Lansbury makes me cringe.

Smallville and Grey's Anatomy are what I watch. Hart to Hart is the only oldie but goodie I watch.

I love pretty much all t.v. shows. I like Gossip girl, 90210, Dancing with the Stars, Grey's Anatomy, ER, Amazing Race, Lost, Desperate Housewives and the whole Sunday line up.

I guess right now my most favorite is America's Next Top Model.
