Reality TV Junkie

Hello, my name is Alex and I am a Reality TV  junkie. Yes, its true, I have no problem admitting it. I don't know if its that  I love to watch other people make a fool of them selves or the fact that you're watching other  people's drama, but I love it.  My whole reality TV experience started with Laguna Beach did any of you watch that show? I loved that show. Whatever don't judge me.

Does it make me less of a person?  I don't think so. Does it mean I'm not a smart individual? I don't think so. I think it  just makes me a person that watches reality TV and I don't really see  anything wrong with it.   I think its entertaining and funny  and  I like to be entertained.

So, of course last night was the season premier of one of my favorite shows.   If you watch reality TV, you probably know which show I'm talking about. That's right, I'm talking about Jersey Shore.  Yes, you can close your mouth now.  I think its funny and  I love to laugh , that's it.  I really don't see what the big deal is.

While watching the show, I was going through my Facebook's news feed and I saw how many people loved the show and how many people obviously didn't like it.  One person actually wrote that people that watch that show have a low cell count. Now, I respect every one's opinion, but I thought that was just a little harsh, don't you think?

So, there you have it folks. I love reality TV.   I  feel that the TV watching  experience can be just for entertainment purposes ( when I say TV watching experience I'm speaking of an adults experience, not children) just in case you were wondering or asking your self, if I would let my son watch this show or any reality TV, well the obvious answer would be no because my son is 2, when his an adult, he can make his own decisions on what he wants to watch.

I would love to hear your thoughts. Reality TV, do you love it? or hate it? why or why not?

On that note, I hope everyone has a great Friday!

I'm more of a crime show junkie (CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds). I've only watched a few reality shows. Everyone has their addictions! ;)

Happy Friday!

I used to love watching Survivor, but these past few years I've kinda lost interest - it got too "out there" for me.

My husband and I love watching Top Chef! We loving anything cooking related and Top Chef is on our "do not miss" list!
