Reality Shows

January 20, 2008 at 3:15 am 12 comments

Princess is a reality show junkie.  She watches them all from MTVs Real World, to Survivor to The Biggest Loser and then she degenerates into the really pathetic ones starring washed up singers and actors letting camera’s follow them around at their homes.  How desperate for the limelight do you have to be to actually let a camera crew record your every waking moment?  No doubt they do it for the money as well as the exposure, but it really creeps me out.  I could have lived forever without knowing how burned out Ozzy ended up being and Gene Simmons is much more appealing behind his KISS make-up.

The Dana Fredsti’s Murder For Hire blog book tour begins tomorrow.  You may have noticed that my blog didn’t disappear, and the tour information actually made it to my side bar with hyper links….no thanks to me.  Big thanks to clever Quilldancer, however, who had pity on my pitiful self and sent me the code to make that happen.  Thank you Quilly!  If you aren’t already reading one of Quilly’s blogs, scoot over there and hunt around until you find her stories called The Grownups Wanted Us Dead…hysterical, and if you happen to be a 35 to 50-something, you’ll start looking at your own parents a little differently.

    Kat — happy to help! And I’m 14 months from being over 50, so tell me again why Laura is whining.

    Hum, I’m 6 years from that age bracket – but on the wrong side, LOL!

    Delighted that you didn’t go poof, and that’s to Quilly for helping to keep you safe!

    Laura J – you’re still a baby, practically in swaddling clothes!
    Quilly and Hayden – Come on girls, we all know that age is just a number!

    Dave – You did old school reality like Survivor, that’s not so bad. Ozzy and Jessica Simpson? Shame on them!

    I share your distaste for reality TV and celebs desperate for any attention.

    Dana’s book was loads of fun to read. It seems she feels the same way about some actors and their hangers-on. I encourage everyone to go to the first stop on Dana’s tour, Elysabeth’s Emerald City. Dan’s bio is there along with an excerpt from the book. Leave a comment for a chance to win a free copy of Murder for Hire.

    I’ll seek it out! Reality shows are sad. I don’t know if you gat Extra’s by Ricky Gervaise but there’s an excellent observation about these shows in that. Brilliant!

    I get a kick out of them being called reality shows. Whose reality? They sure don’t resemble any reality I’ve ever seen.

    Er, I’m President of the Reality Show Fan Club. Yep. Apprentice, Kimora Lee, The Kardashians, Snoop, Real World, you name it, I watch them all. The other day it occurred to me that I haven’t watched a ‘proper’ program on tv. Pathetic!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
