Ok; Bravo clearly listened to their MN Housewife and they’ve taken my suggestions!

Real Housewives of Miami is coming our way! Turns out they already filmed it and it’s set to air in early 2011.

Lawd have mercy. I have yet ANOTHER night of housewives to put on the DVR. Click here to read more info!

**Thanks for the tip Mollee!

Let it be known. I’ve abstained from tasteless celebrity gossip for approximately 4 days. Don’t ever ask me to do it again. It may be obvious here, but one of my favorite shows are the Real Housewives series on Bravo. Holy disasters. I love EVERYTHING about these shows. Tacky, tasteless, and filthy rich. What’s not to love?

Until they cast me for the Real Housewives of Minnesota; I figure it’s within my rights as a superfan to chime in my two cents on the series. Bravo producers: are you listening?

Person who deserves a punch in the face: Phaedra. Give her the boot and bring back baby-makin Lisa.

Biggest Hot Mess: Kim for sure. The wig line. The anonymous rich sugar daddy. It’s just too much.

One I’m rooting for: Kandy. Good lawd. This girl just needs to catch a break!

Housewife I’m over: Sheree. Your clothing line sucks. You are SUPER high maintenance, and you seem like a royal pain in the @$$. That being said, I’d kill for those arms.

Rock Star Housewive? Nene Leaks! If you’re going to be crazy, at least own your insanity. I love everything about her. She’s brash, she’s aggressive, but at least you know where she stands.

Beverly Hills: quickly becoming one of my favorite casts!

Punch in the face: CAMILLE. She’s straight off the crazy train. She actually could be somehow related to NYC’s Ramona with those crazy-eyes and bi-polar tendencies.

One I’m rooting for: Taylor has me a bit on the fence. I love her commitment to activism, but I don’t understand her relationship or priorities. It’s clear she’s struggling, but with her heart of gold I hope she can find some peace!

Housewife who should sure her plastic surgeon: Adrienne I love you but holy moly. You are just 2 steps away from looking like this lady. 


Even worse? I’m pretty sure her husband is responsible for some of those operations. No good. 

Rock Star Housewife: Lisa! She’s legit. Her restaurants, her ridiculous dog/husband (often confused with one another I’m sure), and her smokin’ hot pool boy Cedric. (Too bad he’s probably not interested in most of the female race, but he’s still great to look at) LOVE her and love her british accent. **Kyle is a close 2nd for me here. Love her confidence and loyalty. (Also don’t mind her husband who often walks around sans-shirt)

The originals: Orange County

Punch in the Face: Gretchen. Her and Slade? NASTY. Her Anna-Nicole style relationship with a man on his deathbed? A bit sketchy.

Biggest Hot Mess: Tamara. She lost her mind last season. I understand her divorce was real rough, but the multiple displays of public ridiculousness earn her this award.

One I’m rooting for: Please let Lauri find some peace. She loves her family, she’s found a good man to share her life with, and she had the good sense to leave the show when it became too much. Now if she could somehow get back her pre-surgery looks I’m sure I’d like her even more.

Housewife who needs Dr. Drew: Lynn. Go to therapy! You are clearly under the influence of something that is not legal.

Rock Star Housewife: Honestly? Vicki is straight off an advertisment for all sorts of perscription drugs. She needs some uppers, some downers, and some ritalin. That being said; I love that she works her butt off and is always insane. Consistency is good in this world!

New York City

Punch in the Face: Kelly. Go away. You have CRAZY selective memory, and honestly seem WAY off your rocker. 

Biggest 180: I don’t know if it was the Bethenny break-up or what, but Jill really went off the deep end last year. She was crazy defensive, but also pretty harsh. Hopefully next season she’ll go back to her usual witty self. 

One I’m rooting for: I have to admit that LuAnn is just as wonky as the next person, but she’s one of the only ones I think I could stand in real life. Even if her single sounds more like RuPaul than the Countess….

Housewife who needs Supernanny: Alex. Jill is right. Your kids are a smidge insane. And your husband? Don’t even get me started.

Rock Star Housewife: Bethany! There’s a reason she got her own show people. She’s the only one who works for a living, and I typically agree with 94% of the things coming out of her mouth. 


 You were so lame I fell asleep just searching for a picture of your cast. You don’t even deserve this post. Sorry bout it…..

New Jersey: Oh how I love thee.

Punch in the Face: Do I even need to say it? Danielle is NUTS. She’s literally got to be clinically insane. The things she shares with her kids, her freaky “bodyguard” Danny, and her slightly sketchy past? All crazy. 

One I’m embarrassed to love: Theresa is nuts. There’s no way around it. But holy cow is she a pit-bull. And when she speaks Italian? Awesome. This is how I imagine J-Woww from Jersey Shore to be in 10 years. She’s old school and I love it. 

Housewife I’m pulling for: Jacqueline hopefully has some good things going for her. The daughter is a royal pain, but Jacqueline is one of the only slightly normal ones it seems!

Rock Star Housewife: Caroline does no wrong in my book. She’s the mama-bear you don’t want to piss off, and I dig it. 

What cities are left? Here would be my picks for upcoming seasons.

– Dallas: Give me some southern belles, rodeo queens, and cowboy wives. I’m SURE they’d be good.

– Miami: Bring on some sizzling latinos with some sass. Guaranteed drama here. 

– Vegas: I have to admit this was my husbands suggestion but he’s right on. Lots of money, lots of clubs, and LOTS of former strippers. Would be a sure hit. 

This might be the longest post I’ve ever written. Embarrassing. 

Or awesome……

Confessions: I’m a GLEEK

I cannot wait for tonight. The season premiere of what I consider one of the best shows to hit primetime in the last few years. One that I DVR religiously, and love EVERY SINGLE character. An entire show devoted to the awkwardness that we call high school? Nothing better.

My friend Jenny already devoted her entire facebook wall to the premiere, and she reminded me of this gem from last season.

Reality TV: So predictable

Oh reality TV.

I realized that I’ve been missing my true calling in life. I am AMAZING at predicting reality TV outcomes. True they are slightly predictable, but I would rather pretend it’s a gift.

1. A few months ago, I predicted (successfully) that Ali would be the next Bachelorette. A few months later and what do you know? I’m wasting an hour of my life watching her baby-talk a bunch of awkward dudes who want to “guard and protect her heart”.

2. Now another interesting post? I identified Vienna as a hot mess in the early days of the show. In the above post with Ali, I also predicted that they would break-up within 2 months if Jake picked Vicious Vienna.

3. Need one more example? Before the NYC reunion, I predicted that Kelly would be a disaster, and would insult the other housewives.

Next prediction?

These two will be the top 2 in Ali’s season of The Bachelorette: (Roberto & Chris)

If I were a gambling woman (which I totally am :o) I’d take myself to Vegas with these skillz! (or I should be ashamed and find a new hobby……….you decide!)

Bob or Jillian?

One of my all-time favorite shows is NBC’s: The Biggest Loser. I LOVE the hard-work ethic, the adversity the contestants overcome, and I rarely find myself cheering AGAINST someone. I recently began watching Jillian’s new show “Losing it” and am already hooked! 
Made me think though; I’m pretty sure Jillian Michaels showing up at my house would result in one of the below things:
1. I would sass her an unbelievable amount. NBC would have to bleep out 28 minutes of the 30 minute episode and she would probably ask me if SHE could quit.
2. She would uncover loads of “issues” I had suppressed over the years. I would spend 28 minutes of the 30 minute episode ugly crying. You know; the kind where you lose all control of your tear ducts, your voice, and your snotty nostrils. 
3. Or…..she would whip my ass into shape. I’d be a size zero and have abs you could grate cheese on. 
I always thought I preferred Bob’s style on the show, but I realize more and more that Jillian (although incredibly turbo) is definitely coming from a good place. Smart move for NBC to cast BOTH of them; they really do work well together.
Who do you all prefer? Any Bob fans in the house?
Gotta go; after watching this episode I have a date with the treadmill!

Holy hand-grenades. This season of Real Housewives of NYC was really a hot mess. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still tivo these chicks every Thursday night but my gawd……it’s a little much! Where do we begin….

Oh Kelly. Memorable quote from this chick tonight? She shows up to Ramona’s vow renewal in a REAL skeezy dress. As her left boob is falling out of her dress, she tells Jill, “I never dress sexy, this is new for me”. Seriously? Oh that’s right; it’s perfectly normal for a 40+ yr old woman with 2 kids to pose naked in Playboy, date 20 yr old guys, and wear mini-skirts that show her hoo-hah. FALSE Kelly; you dress like a hot mess. Just own it. And do we even need to discuss her vacation “episode”? Uffdah. Least favorite housewife. I vote her off the island.
Luanne: STOP SINGING! There’s only room for one breathy/husky singer in this world and her name is Stevie Nicks. Thank god for autotune or I’d be suing you to replace my bleeding eardrums.
Now Jill made me the most sad this season. In the past, I agreed with her about 75% of the time. She spoke her mind and always stood her ground. This season however, she seemed consumed by her own drama. You must ask yourself; when you have drama with ALL the other housewives, maybe YOU’RE the problem!

Now Alex. Honestly? She’s a real wierd duck. I do however, whole-heartedly agree with her on a few things. 
1. When she told Jill/LuAnne to stop trashing her children. You can mess with the Momma Bear but leave her cubs alone. Uncalled for gals.
2. When she went off at Jill and called her a mean girl. Best quote. “You are a mean girl, and you are in high school. And while you are in high school, I’m in Brooklyn.” Well said! 
Still don’t understand her husband; but honestly they seem to have one of the most solid marriages in the whole bunch!
Ramona: The short hair is a MUCH better look for you. Now if we could just stop you from wearing bedazzled halter tops (see above); you might just be on your way to finally looking age-appropriate. If I hear about her “renewal” one more time I might lose it. I’ll be honest though; I wanted to punch her in the face FAR less than usual this season. This “renewal” (aka…….perscription meds possibly?) is clearly working!

And finally; what I am officially deeming my favorite housewife of the year. BETHENNY!

I love her. She’s bold, she’s confident, and honestly I typically see where she’s coming from. Sadly I actually want her and Jill to make up but I don’t see that in the cards. I’m excited to see her new series so hopefully that will be worth watching. I think my ideal chick fight would be Bethenny vs. Crazy Danielle from New Jersey. 2 bold chicks just getting after it.
Reunion is next week; I’m hoping that:
1. Bethenny/Jill make up
2. LuAnne stops judging people for more than 2 seconds (and also removes the word “darling” from her vocabulary.)
3. Kelly arrives as coked out as she was on vacation; and then proceeds to insult all the housewives. 
How did NYC compare to the other cities? I’ll be honest, in my mind the ranking is still:
1. Orange County
2. New Jersey
3. NYC
4. Atlanta
What’s everyone think? Am I a lone-ranger in my love for Bethenny/hatred for Kelly?

Reality Remix

In all my recent reality TV viewing, I figured it was time for a little brain-dump. I’ve got all these thoughts/judgements running through my head, and isn’t that the reason people blog? To share it with the world! I’ve got some thoughts on lots of recent episodes so here’s the spot for them all!

Real Housewives of NYC
Holy cow snobby. First off, when did Bethenny become such an elitist snob?

My husband has watched the show maybe twice in his life and even he said, “That girl is always running her mouth about someone”. Everything that comes out of her mouth is a major slam against another housewife. Some I might add are a bit below the belt. For example, she tells Jill to “get a hobby” when Jill actually runs a business in NYC and is one of the more normal housewives I’ve seen. She also has been extremely rude about LuAnn’s divorce; an area in my opinion which is off-limits. Bethenny? Stick with making the skinny-girl margaritas and quit going on such a rampage with your castmates. You’ll thank me when the reunion happens and you don’t get bitch-slapped by the other housewives.

And Ramona?

She’s all about “turning over a new leaf” and surrounding herself with better people, yet she’s the first one to throw everyone under the bus. These women are INSANE! It’s frustrating because the concept of the show is so entertaining; women with tons of money, some with sweet jobs, living in one of the best cities in America. Yet every-single episode focuses on the internal drama between the women. I’ll admit it’s part of the reason I’m so addicted, but I’d also love to see these girls rise above and class it up a bit.

They’re still on my DVR for now, but I reserve the right to remove you if the annoying nonsense doesn’t stop. When is Atlanta coming back? Bring on NeNe!!!!

Dancing with the Stars
This one will be fairly simple. I only have a few comments.

Kate Gosselin; oh my goodness I worry about you. First off, RELAX. On your show you are the most tightly wound individual I’ve ever seen. (Although who can judge a woman that handles 8 kids, her galavanting husband, his mistress, and an entire TV crew. Nevermind Kate, you be as turbo as you need to be!) I honestly wanted to see Kate to do well. I thought it might be a cool moment for her to show her fun personality. Instead she is too robotic and has zero personality. I’m dying to see a little booty shakin, hair flipping, shimmying out of Ms. Gosselin.

Pamela Anderson = Hot Mess
Seriously? Talk about being type-cast but come on. This girl OOZES sex appeal, but honestly? I’m over it. At this point in your life I have some advice. Cut off the stripper hair and how about a cute mid-length number? I’m not saying to a mom-bob or anything but come on; you’re not on Baywatch anymore.

Her facials throughout her entire routine are eeriliy similar to those you would see on some other type of film (ie; the kind kept in the back of the video store behind the long black curtain). A smile or too is just fine; we don’t need to see your porn-star expressions throughout an entire waltz. Here are some things that are inappropriate for a 43 year old women to wear:
– Body Glitter
– High heels that are clear/made of plastic
– Cartilidge, Nose or Belly-button piercings
– Tube Tops

I understand that she’s a contestant on a dance show, therefore has to be in certain outfits. However when it’s a Saturday morning and she’s not dancing? She still channels “Stripperella” a little too much.

I’m all about “The Biggest Loser” but honestly have nothing but fantastic things to say about that show. They will not be on my diss-list anytime soon. Any big shows that I’ve missed lately? What are your favorites?
