Hi my name is Ami and I’m obsessed with reality TV. And not just any reality TV, ok well mostly any reality TV, but the current flavour of the week is The Real Housewives of Orange County. Yes you read correctly those bottled blonde, fake boobed, bitchy women have got me totally hooked. Hell I’m so hooked I want to be an OC Housewife. Ok maybe let’s not go that far. Ok well maybe just a little bit. I wouldn’t mind looking that good 24 hours a day. But only if it just happened, otherwise pfft, I couldn’t be bothered.
Anyway back to the show. It’s like a car wreck, you just can’t help but watch. You want to turn away, actually no that’s not even true. I don’t want to turn away, I want to watch it all day long until the cows come home. And that’s mostly what I’ve been doing. Except of course looking after Sophie. But as soon as she’s back down for a sleep, I’m back glued to the TV after I recorded the Season 4 Marathon.
Now I just have one small problem. I’ve run out of episodes. I’ve watched them all. Yep a whole season in a matter of days. And it would have been less if I hadn’t been interrupted by a hospital stay (more on that later). Now I’m busily searching the Internet to find out where I can download Season 5. I NEED MY HOUSEWIVES FIX!
I’m sure there’s a ‘term’ for this. You see I’m sure it’s a disease. I find these marathons on Foxtel and just. get. totally. hooked. The other week it was The Kardashian’s. It used to be The Hills. It was a sad day when that show ended. *SOB*.
I know it’s all trash, but I just can’t help watching it. Maybe it’s so fascinating because it’s ‘real’. Half the time I’m sitting here thinking, surely these people aren’t for real. Well, except for their boobs anyway.
Ah well, as my husband says, at least I can admit it’s trash.
Do you like reality TV?
