Reality Check

Here's what's been happening in the reality world:
Sunday night
The Amazing Race:  I hated that the mother/daughter pair were last.  It broke my heart.  I hoped that since the paper said "The last team to arrive may be eliminated", it was going to be a non-elimination leg of the race.  Pooh on you, producers!  If you don't watch the show, the mother had given up her daughter for adoption at birth because she couldn't take care of her.  It tore at my heart hearing the mom thanking the adoptive parents for caring for her daughter and making her into the woman that she is.  This was the first time that they had spent any time together.  I hate that their time was cut short, but I bet they keep in touch and get to know each other better.  Yes, I'm a big fan of happy endings!  Brook & Claire are my least favorite right now.  Brook's voice is like fingernails going down a chalkboard.  Seriously. 

Keeping Up with the Kardashians:  I'm sorry, but Scott just absolutely creeps me out.  I think Khloe is onto something not liking him.  Is Kourtney that lacking in self-confidence that she can't see that he's a gold-digging socio-path?  She could have any man on the planet, and she picks him?  That baby is just about the cutest baby I've ever seen, but bless his heart for having that boy as his father.

Monday Night
Real Housewives of Atlanta:  This was the first episode of the new season.  Sheree mentioned that Lisa moved, but where did she go?  Did she move away from Atlanta or what?  I hate that she's not a cast member this season; she was pretty feisty!  I think Dwight is talking out of both sides of his mouth.  Nene isn't one to let things go:  she's extremely confrontational and she does seem to pick fights, but you know exactly where you stand with her.  It was good to see her & Kim being civil (and even being friends) to each other, but I don't think it's going to last!  When they're getting along (or rather, when Nene is getting along with anybody!) she looks like she's a lot of fun to be around.  I think she's got a lot of things going on in her life right now:  marital problems, and the next episode her son has been arrested.  I'm not sure how I feel about the new cast members; they didn't show them very much.

Dancing With The Stars: I can't even believe that I forgot to watch on Monday night!  I was so excited about Real Housewives starting back up, I completely forgot!  The whole time CH & I were watching How I Met Your Mother & Rules of Engagement, I thought I was missing something, but I never put it all together!  I'm not thrilled about seeing Jennifer Grey on there:  She's a trained dancer, for goodness' sake!  As much as I don't care for Audrina, I have to admit she did an awesome job.  As for "The Situation":  Seriously?  Hooray for Len for saying he didn't think it was very good.  AGREED.  Kurt Warner: He now has my heart.  I liked him already, but the dancing and tea party with his little girls put me over the top.  And, Rick Fox:  OOOOO-EEEEEE!  Bristol Palin looks like she's got the dance moves down, she just needs to relax her face and have fun with it.  I know she can do it! Florence Henderson:  really?  Her performance was way too easy...I could've done what she did.  I think she has the sympathy vote for being Carol Brady.

Tonight is Survivor...I've been watching off and on; I just can't get into it this season.  Tomorrow is the last Real Housewives of DC when Tareq and Michaele (another creepy couple) go to the infamous state dinner.  Apparently they had tickets (or did they?) and Michaele lost them.  Hmmm......

You may be asking yourself:  reality tv and blogging...does this girl have a life?  The answer: yes, I do, I just watch way too much tv!


  1. Ha-fun updates. I don't watch any of these programs although this week we clicked on DWTS and kinda liked it. We said the same about 'Carol Brady'. I'm not a Margaret Cho fan so I'm not sorry to see her go. All I can say about Jennifer Gray is I wish I looked as good as she does-we're the same age and believe me, you would not want to see me on DWTS!

  2. i haven't really gotten on the reality tv bandwagon....i've been watching a cute show on abc family called Melissa & Joey. brings back some ppl from my growing up might like it! xoxo

  3. You bet you got a life--a mother, wife, and teacher!
    I don't watch much reality TV--too many others with other interests in our house. But I occasionally watch Wife Swap (love the dynamics) and Super Nanny (can't believe people are willing to have the world watch their children hitting them!)
    I enjoy reading about families like yours!

  4. I too hated that the mom and daughter lost on amazing race. It made me so sad.

  5. too cute!! I don't watch much TV myself, but do find myself enjoying a bit of Dancing with the Stars when I can wrestle the remote away from hubby (which is why I probably don't watch too much TV, LOL; one can only watch so much Sci Fi :)

    thanks for the updates on the other shows too :)


  6. Well, for this non-TV watching gal, I sure did enjoy your entry. I do watch DWTS and agree with everything you said about it. I like the dull and boring programs such as Dateline, 48 Hour Mystery and Prime Time if I'm going to watch TV. :o)

    Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week!

  7. That is quite a story on The Amazing Race. I don't watch any of those shows but I often catch the recap show of Dancing With The Stars.

  8. I agree with you on Scott and Dwight. They should find an island and move there. :)

  9. This is the first season I've really watched Dancing with the Stars. I only get to watch Monday night and then check the internet to find out what happens on Tuesday. And Survivor is one of my most favorites!

  10. I watch DWTS, too, and agree with much of what you said about it. I don't mind Florence so much as her partner Corky. He is just a little too over-the-top for me, personality-wise with all of his exaggerated facial expressions. And I like the sports guys, too! They are so nice!

  11. Life? You mean that there's life away from the TV and computer?

    Oh yeah. Life is what we live when we're at school.

    We need a break from reality!!! We work hard!

    Ok, so Amazing Race: I'm glad the mother/daughter team had the time together. It was a great way to get to know each other. They are so similar that it's scary! I'm seeing lots of happy times ahead for them!

    I really like Brooke and gal-pal. My least favorite is the doctor team. I don't know why, but they just haven't struck my fancy.

    Survivor - it's getting good, but I'm disappointed that JJ isn't still around. Bummer.

    DWTS - Love Jennifer Grey. You know, she's not actually trained, I think. She mentioned something about that in her piece. Plus, she just went through a few neck surgeries and chemotherapy, so it's amazing that she's on that dance floor! I'm rooting hard for her.
