Trashy TV TuneUp

So....my Real Housewives of New Jersey is over...this left me almost completely devoid of any trashy tv!!! Luckily I still had Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood to rely on. I absolutely think they are the cutest little family, and despite fame and (mis)fortune, they have truly made what they have for themselves. Yes, Tori's daddy was a multi billionaire, but he left her a measly 800k....poor T. Luckily, they sunk that into their B&B and ended up making some decent money off of that! Aside from everything, I just love their cute little family. She is such a good mama and really sends so much time with her kids and she even makes her own baby food!! Hats off to her! I plan on doing that, but we will see. I am sure that in itself will make for some interesting posts. Tori and Dean also have a loving and sweet and stable marriage, and who doesn't love watching that?!!?!?!? It's refreshing in this day to watch that rather a divorce drama drawn out on national television (ahem.....)
This week was the season finale of Southern Belles: Louisville. At first, I was merely watching because it was like a train wreck! I couldn't turn away but it was slightly nauseating to watch. However, the girls ended up growing on me and a few ended up quite endearing in my opinion. The finale definitely caught me off guard for poor Shea, I never saw that coming! I won't go into details for those of you that haven't seen it yet! I hope the ladies return for a second season!! Bring it on Soap Network!!
Real Housewives of Atlanta....let's not even go there....they're returning and once again, shall give the South a bad name. For those of you not from around here, that's NOT what women down here act like!!!! They give us a bad rap...no pun intended, because I think one of the new girls is a female rapper this season. Let's see how classy she is.
Jon and Kate...on hiatus as are my views on the situation. But I can't say that I won't watch it when it returns on Aug 3...I'm not obsessed or anything.
This summer I became addicted to Royal Pains and Burn Notice on USA Network. Raymond was already obsessed with BN, but both shows have really turned my eye! Both are very MacGuyveresque and have really good looking men in them! I am sad to see them ending for the season.
I am looking forward to going back to work so that I can once again regain my civilized conversations with other adults instead of flipping through daytime tv (which I curse my bed rest, because I have started watching Days of Our Lives, and now I'm sucked in...AGH!!) and having my day revolve around the TV Guide.
This is a day in the life of a bored baby mama:
7:00-10:00 The Today Show
10:00-11:00 Regis and Kelly
11:00-12:00 Hoda and Kathie Lee (I know, but seriously, there's nothing else on at this hour)
12:00-1:00 Law and Order: SVU (or catching up on DVR) and Raymond comes home for lunch!
1:00-2:00 Days of Our Lives
2:00- 3:00 Racheal Ray (or catching up on DVR)
3:00- 4:00 Yes, Dear (then only one more hour til Daddy's home!!!)
4:00-5:00 King of Queens (this hour doesn't last long enough, LOVE this show)
Seriously, y'all....that's my day in a nutshell.
It's a sad day in your life when you plan out hour by hour by which show is on....I don't think I'll ever retire if this is what I have to look forward to!!

Speaking of tv...back to my shows of the evening!!! We weighed in tonight! Tune in tomorrow for our results!!!

Love, Charlotte
