Reality TV...

There are so many Reality TV shows on now. Seems like everybody and their momma has signed up for one. I don't know if I could have cameras following me around 24/7. It'd seem weird to have strangers crowding into your personal space.

I don't know how many of you have actually watched any of the Real Housewives shows. Good gawd, some of them are just painful to watch. It's gotta be scripted, because who in Sam Hill would put all their personal business out there like that? I would guess that they're all getting paid nicely to do it.

Have you ever noticed how all of the "housewives" are ALWAYS in full-face-theater-makeup?!?! One episode that I recently watched showed one of them barefaced, preparing to have her makeup applied.  This one in particular has her own makeup line, so she is always caked up thick. 
Well, when the cameras showed her barefaced. I actually shrieked! If they hadn't said her name I would not have known it was her. She looked totally different without makeup.

And what's with all the fighting? My goodness! It seems like every time they all get together whether to eat, attend a party, event, etc. It always ends in a ruckus. All of them screaming at each other, crying, snotting all over the place, coming close to fist-fighting. But the makeup never runs, smears and the extra glossy shellac lip gloss still in place.

By now you're probably saying. If you dislike these shows so much, why are you watching them? LOL!! Well, as I stated before I love the show House Hunters on HGTV. I just love seeing homes being decorated. And though these women are at times lunatics. They have beautifully decorated homes. Yes, I watch just so I can see how they decorate!! :)



  1. Hi Beth, know are good! However, I can't stand these shows even if the decor` is good! It is not real as you pointed out with the make-up! This is just about all you see on almost every channel you put on...I am one person who's tired of all the fake reality shows! Being on something worthwhile for families to watch! Its disgraceful!

  2. The only reality TV show I've ever really watch continuously is MTV's Cribs. In that show I find a sense of realism and fun associated to the experience of being a star. All the other shows are terrible (I've seen at least 1 episode of every show to say that confidently).

    I don't think there's any disputing with your findings: Reality shows s---, uh, are not up to par in quality. However, I do not condemn those who do watch them on a continuous basis as part of their weekly programming menu.

  3. We don't have cable or channels or anything, so if I want to catch a TV show I usually have to do it online. Or we mostly watch Netflix. :) So I've never really seen any of these shows!! :D

  4. Haha! I love your reason for watching! I haven't seen any, but I do love a beautifully decorated home. :)
