Days of Thanks - 6

So this is the post were my superficial self is going to come through.
We are getting personal here.
Whatever you do, please don't judge.
I am just a girl fallen victim to
Reality TV.
I am a reality TV junkie and should probably get some professional help.
As much as I hate to admit it,
I am thankful for my favorite TV shows.
Its an escape. 
I can watch drama without having any of my own.
What could be better?

Now, not all Reality TV is trash.
I happen to find one series particularly inspirational.
I think most would agree.

Love the transformations. Love the life changes. Love the accomplishments.
Its such an interesting take on loosing weight.
Giving up everything to focus on health. Health being the #1.
There is nothing better than sitting down with coke and pizza
and watching these people change themselves from the inside out. 

Inspirational is clearly not what I would call my next favorite.

This is just good drama. Just trash at its finest. Is it not just straight up 
silliness as to how we become attached to certain
contestants? Well shame on me. I don't miss a season.

Then there is The Bachelor's not so distant cousin.
Good grief. I told myself I would never watch this.
Saying it took The Bachelor to a whole new level of no good.
Then for some strange reason, I watched. Didn't miss an episode of season 1.
Or season 2.

So you won't be surprised to know that I spend from 9-10 pm on Tuesday nights
with MTV.

This show has beyond made my jaw drop.
We won't even get into that. So, yes, I watch.
I know the girls. I feel sad for the babies.

Well what is 16 and Pregnant without the follow up?

Its impossible for me not to know what happened.
Watched all the seasons. I certainly have my favorites.
I know you all agree that somehow, Caitlyn and Tyler win the prize
for most sensible. There is no telling how that happened though.
Stop acting like you don't know exactly what I am talking about.

I could add a few more to my list here, but I dont want to humiliate myself 
anymore than I just did.

Well. Day 6 and I am thankful for trash TV. What would life look like without it?
More conversations? More reading? A cleaner house? A smaller waist?
Well probably, but we all have our guilty pleasures, right?

This is why we are friends obviously b/c I too love reality TV but I love it for a different reason....its b/c I do not feel guilty when I judge people who sign themselves up to be on TV and then make fools of themselves. Glad to know I am not the only one with this fetish! Love you!
