Guilty Pleasures in TV land

December 19, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m the type of person that tends to think that most reality TV can induce brain suckage. The first examples that come to mind are Jersey Shore with the orange-hued fake-boobed “guidettes” and pretty much anything on the E! network.

However, I will completely admit that I’ve been a True Life viewer for a few years now. I don’t know why I find that series fascinating, other than I’m a nosy person who wants to see what other folks are up to in their real lives. Some of it is hard to watch, but it seems to be a bit more honest than other “reality” programs (The Hills, anything with the Kardashians or any TLC show).

Lately my new guilty pleasure has been The Real Housewives of Atlanta. One Sunday evening I turned the channel to Bravo, and got sucked in. It’s almost like watching a soap opera in that if you miss a couple of episodes you’re not going to know what happened to Blair or Teddy or which surgeon removed half of Chord’s brain (I’m just making things up at this point). So now, without even really thinking about it, at 8pm it’s time to see what Nene, Phaedra, Kandi (my favorite), Cynthia, Sheree, and Kim are up to.  Oooh, the cattiness, the drama, the funny one-liners. I’m sure not all of it is unscripted, but it’s holding my interest.
