Let's Get Real.

Ya'll, we need to talk about something serious. Oh shit, I'm sure you're thinking. Not ANOTHER downer post. No, no, I promise it's not. But I DO need to get real. First, though, I have to ask:

Why am I standing like this?


I can't help but be reminded of THIS:


And now that THAT'S out of the way, let's get back to life, back to reality. Reality TV, that is. Swimmin' pools, wanna-be-movie stars (Kardashians, I'm talkin' bout YOU, Willis). But surrsly, I'm writing this after watching one of my favorite reality shows, So You Think You Can Dance (with one of my top five girl crushes, Cat Deeley).


So I thought we'd chat about some of my OTHER favorite reality shows. There's the one, the only, the original, Real Housewives of Orange County (OC in da HOUSE, bay-beeee!!!), and RHO Beverly Hills. I can't help it. Are you kidding me? All the jewel toned satin finery that those bitchez wear? Who WOULDN'T love that?


If I'm being COMPLETELY honest, though, probably my favorite reality show is Top Chef. I know - who knew? 


You know why? Cuz it's relatively drama free (as far as reality TV goes), and I'm reminded when I watch it that you really don't need crazy drama to make riveting TV.


At one time I would've put Project Runway at the top of this list, but it has become such a caricature of the original show that I just can't anymore. It wears me out. So what are YOUR favey crocketts, fellow reality TV fans? You know what to do - leave a message at the beep.

Love me some SYTYCD! I also love Wipe Out--I know, but its too, too hilarious watching people get pummeled and smacked in the face HARD and then falling into water. Total laugh riot, cuz how can bad can it really hurt if you end up in water? Right? Kick ass song, btw.

Eeeeek - I've never seen Wipe Out, but is that the one that in the commercials someone is always standing on some kind of thing over the water and gets pummeled with a giant padded hammer and falls in? I CRINGE when I see those. My husband gets very excited about it, though.

In the spirit of full disclosure, we watched The Rock's new show Hero last week, but since it was only one episode, I cannot put it in my favorites list. Time will tell...

Hi, I found you through a comment on Mummy Chronicles.

I love Tootsie. And I love 30 Rock references to Tootsie.

I loved Project Runway for the first few seasons but it's exhausting now and I don't even like the fashion they're doing anymore. I'm still trying to copy Jay McCarroll and Daniel Vosovic outfits.

If you have the chance to see MasterChef Australia, it is the best cooking reality show. So much better than MasterChef US. People are friendly, the judges give constructive criticism, and you can actually learn to make some good food. I have no use for Gordan Ramsey yelling at people.
