I should have called this blog, "Confessions of the Reading Teacher Who Would Rather Watch TV"! Okay I'm busted, yes I would rather watch a little reality t.v. rather than read a book.. Yes, I love to read, but this is summer and I need a little bit of reality or is it?? My favorite guilty pleasure - all of the Real Housewives series produced by Bravo. Yes I love love love Teresa Guidice from New Jersey. It all started of course with the Real Housewives of Orange County, which is why I want to sell my house and move to the "gated" section of my neighborhood. When I "drive through the gates" when visiting a friend - I can hear the Real Housewives of Orange County theme song playing in my head (I'm not the only one - don't judge me). And of course one of my NEW favs is - Bethanny Getting Married?- I'm so happy for her.
For now watching the lives of others gives me a great break from the "realities" of my own life - children, house, bills, work, husband etc. etc.. Thank goodness for my DVR - which needs an upgrade. I can record one show after another and when all of the housework is done, and the paperwork is completed - I can sit back with a hot cup of coffee and escape into someone else's reality. Which reality shows do you watch?
