For Love of Trashy Shows...

First off, let me say a big THANK YOU to all of our new followers and to everyone who participated in the contest last week! LEXIE--I'm sure you will love your Dorchester books!

Now, *drumroll please* for this week's prize...a signed copy of my book, A BUMP IN THE ROAD! You want it. You know you do. :)

All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered. Check out the sidebar to the right of this blog for more ways to win! Good luck!

Alright, as for the topic at hand--reality shows. People who know me in real life know that I'm a bit of a reality show lover. Which is embarrassing enough. What makes it worse is that the kind of shows I watch aren't even the ones of value--American Idol, Top Chef, Project Runway, etc. Those shows actually have some merit involved.

Nope, I'm strictly a trashy reality show junkie. Anything airing on Vh1 and involving aging rock stars like Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, Pretty much any of the "...of Love" shows, Real World...

You see where this is going. It's not pretty.

For some reason, I find it fascinating to watch people who are only on a show for the media exposure and who will do just about anything to stand out. Although, I can't say I'm surprised. I knew there couldn't be that many women who want to date Bret Michaels. (Stay tuned for the next season of Rock of Love: Geritol Edition...)

I will say that if anyone ever needs life validation and proof that you've made good decisions, to turn on one of these shows. Because no matter what is happening in my life, at least I'm not drunk on television and crying about how Flavor Flav dumped me.

So, what are your favorite reality shows?

Although I'm more of an American Idol fan, I do love some good trashy reality shows!

My favorite reality show is So You Like You can Dance. I really cannot dance so I love watching others that are amazing at it

How could I forget to add "So You Think You Can Dance" as on of my faves?Idk. But I have to admit I watched "Rock of Love" the 1st season and I was voting for Jessica Whoo and she won...I think.LOL.I can't remember.And I watched "Scream Queens" and "From G's to Gents." Those shows were awesome!

I'll definitely have to try SYTYCD and "From G's to Gents!" I'm always up for more ways to procrastinate...er...shows to watch.

I don't really watch them.. does America's Funniest Home Videos count?

I watch that with my future in laws on Sundays. I have caught Idol a few times and it was pretty fun to watch.
