I waited to post anything to see if Java was going to put up her Meet Me on Monday. I guess Java has too much going on right now! :( So, let's catch up on some tv, shall we?
Has anybody been keeping up with Roland Garros (otherwise known as The French Open)? The women's draw has just been full of surprises this year! Serena going out in the first round, and Wozniacki, Kutznetsova, Jankovic, Schiavone all being upset. Looks like Maria Sharapova is definitely the favorite now. I get so frustrated when ESPN insists on showing Nadal or Federer beating the crap out of somebody, instead of a good match. I would much rather watch a close match by 2 "unknowns" than watch a very lopsided match by one of those 2. Sloane Stephens from the USA was very impressive against Sam Stosur yesterday. She's definitely a power hitter and will be someone to watch in the next few years.
Real Housewives of New Jersey: Let me just say what I've said before: Caroline could be one of my closest friends. We're both no drama zones and we come from big families. On last night's episode, the fam went to Chicago for her brother's wedding with his partner. Out of 11 kids, I think only 3 went to the ceremony, plus their mom. They also showed Rosie's (Kathy's sister) coming out to Kathy's kids. Since I have a gay brother, that episode was very close to my heart. It brought back all of the feelings I had when my brother came out to us. No matter what, my brother will always be my brother, and I will love him forever.
I'm pretty much over Real Housewives of Orange County. Those people just need to grow up. It's amazing to me that 40 year old women get so crazy and immature over drama. I'm a bit curious to see the new NYC tonight. Last season LuAnn had a bit of the immaturity and "I'm better than you" mentality. It's hard to believe that some of these ladies are in the business world, but are so immature. I have no other way to describe it except as "immature".
The new season of "Necessary Roughness" (USA Network) starts Wednesday. One thing I love about summer: I can stay up and watch the new shows that come on at 10:00, courtesy of afternoon naps! I caught up on the premier season a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't sure if I would like this show, but I thought it was surprisingly good. A couple of other good shows on that network are "Fairly Legal" and "Common Law". "Suits" starts back up next week.
Okay, I guess I've bored you enough. Let me know if there are any other summer shows out there that I 'm missing!
