Hi, my name is Rachel and I am addicted to television.
It’s true. I watch way way way way waaaaay too much T.V. This may have already been documented on this blog here. But really, that was the tip of the ice berg. It is a problem, I have a problem. But I can’t stop. Bravo is debuting a new show? I’ll at least give it a shot. Someone is making a fool of themselves on MTV? Set the DVR. Don’t even get me started on crime shows. Give me all of the crime shows. So here is a short list of some of my current favs.
(Have you caught on to the fact I’m a list person, yet?)
1. The Real World Ex-plosion
This is one I’m not proud of, people. I really tried to stop watching the Real World, and I was successful halfway through the last season when I got bored. But then all of you kept talking about how amazing it was, and this weekend I went on a binge and caught up on the season. You were not wrong. It. Is. Amazing. If you are in the dark on the season it’s time to enlighten yourself. The ex’s moved in last episode and I CAN NOT WAIT FOR TOMORROW AT 9 PM. Just #keepingitclassy
2. Kim of Queens
I’m going to be honest here for a second. When I first DVR’d this show I thought it was going to be a show about actual queens. As in drag queens. Because, umm, look at Kim (the blonde freaking out at the end). I quickly figured out this show is actually about beauty pageant queens, but it’s still worth every one of the 30 minutes I give it.
Mostly All because of that blonde freaking out at the end up there, Kim. I mean look at that face she is making. I probably make that same face/get that excited at least once a day so we are obviously kindred spirits. Plus, the one liners she comes up with in her interviews rival Nene’s (from the Real Housewives of Atlanta) and that is a huge compliment in my book. (Side note: I haven’t watched this episode yet but I’m going to take a wild shot in the dark and say that girl wins the pagent…)
3. All Da Housewives
You can always count on the Housewives to tell it like it is. See the exhibit above. Obviously, this kind of behavior speaks to me, because of reasons I think I well documented yesterday. These ladies are full of fun and drama (and alcohol) and I am hooked on every single one of them. I’m not sure who Phaedra is referring to here, but let’s be honest, I think this phrase could be used to describe all of us at one point or another and we are not even filthy rich housewives. This season of Beverly Hills is kind of letting me down, but I’ll stick it out and probably give them as many chances as they need to make it up to me.
4. Vanderpump Rules
Like previously stated…give me all the Bravo shows. Vanderpump Rules ended last night and my mind is BLOWN. Oh, and I actually 100% agree with Queen Stassi’s actions for once. Girlfriend deserved to be slapped. Hinting that at the reunion Tom and Ariana will be dating? I mean…BOOM!
I had to find at least ONE to add to the list that was not a reality show. My love for Scandal knows no bounds. I can not fathom how I’m going to make it to the 27th of this fine month without it. If you are sleeping on this show IT IS 100% WORTH YOUR $8 TO SUBSCRIBE TO NETFLIX AND CATCH UP. Don’t say I never gave you any good advice because there it is. These two are just heartbreaking and every time I think they are getting their ish together, they go and mess it all up for reasons I won’t go into here BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO WATCH THIS SHOW.
There you go. Now you know what I do with all my free time.
