People just can’t help themselves. When you drive past a car wreck, you look. Someone is pulled over by the police? You slow down and peek. Parent screaming at their kid in the grocery store. Gawk. So I guess there should be no surprise that Reality TV has taken hold and is rotting the brains of intelligent women everywhere.
Case in point.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo:
A precocious little wanna be Toddlers in Tiaras star who frankly doesn’t stand a chance. She is all kinds of personality without any of the refinement. How could she when at home they are playing “Breath Blowers” which just boils down to “Guess who’s stinky a$$ breath that was”, and have a firm belief that the more you fart, the more weight you will lose. Lord help me when I stumble across this family living on top of the train tracks in the middle of nowhere, I watch the ENTIRE show and shh people who talk over it. I kill myself laughing over their sayings, and justify my addiction by finding the occasional teachable moment for my kids. Here’s a good one; if you ever get your toe run over by a fork lift GO T O THE DOCTOR. or else chance that your toe will look like SugarMamas. That woman has bugs flying out of her feet! Shiver (can.not.look.away)
My other not quite as guilty a pleasure:
Meet the Robertson’s
Some good old country boys gone and made themselves rich by creating the best darn duck call that ever was. They have hillbilly beards and still enjoy a good hunt for frogs at night. (umm which they turn into a feast fit for a king) By all accounts they must be supremely wealthy, and yet still get together regularly for dinner with their Mama and appear to employ the good ole boys. Brother Jase is perhaps one of the funniest men on TV. His dry sense of humour has me clutching my sides wondering how he keeps a straight face. Although now that I think about it, maybe it’s not straight, it’s just hidden under all that hair! Do you think there could be a handsome man under there too?
PS I’m pretty sure I’m related to these people. Kevin Bacon, six degrees style. Think they would have me over for dinner?
Watch out Victor Newman, the classic soap opera is at risk, there’s a new King of brain rot in town….the reality TV star! Housewives everywhere are grabbing their bon bons and sitting down to have a good chuckle at people’s lives that suck just a little bit less then their own.
