I’m Hooked!

It’s that time of year again, folks. Yes, American Idol. I admit my weakness. I have a reality TV addiction. My drugs of choice:

  • America’s Next Top Model
  • Project Runway
  • Top Chef
  • Iron Chef America
  • American Idol

I’d like to be able to say that I am stronger and able to resist the hype but I’d be lying. I planned my evening around being in front of my TV from 8 to 10 tonight so that I can pick my favorites. Let me just say that this first guy singing will not make my list!

I tried to watch Big Brother the other night but I couldn’t follow all the craziness. I remember that in the first couple of seasons I risked getting kicked out of my graduate program to watch it. I was in a total immersion language program and I could have gotten kicked out for watching English language TV or for reading English language websites. I was hooked on BB though, so I took the risk. I can’t stand it now. Its so stupid. At least the shows I’m hooked on now require that the participants have some really skill or talent. And there’s something about watching someone else realize their dream. I always weep at the Top Model finale — well, at all of the finale’s really–but especially top model.

WHY THE HELL DOES THIS GUY HAVE ON THIS RUST COLORED SUIT??? Please tell me there’s something wrong with my color setting. Dear God in heaven. Only choir directors in black churches wear crazy colored suits! What is he thinking?!?!? Where is his wife/girlfriend. She should have exercised her veto power. Chikeize?!? OK, whatever. But the suit has to go. He doesn’t make my list either. Not impressed. Damn! Simon said Jacuzzi! Yay!! We agree that the suit is hideous.

Are you guys addicted to reality TV too? What are your fav’s?

And while we’re asking questions (and I’m in the mood for spilling my guts) how about you guys interview me. I feel like answering questions you guys may have about me –possibly because I’m on my 3rd glass of wine for the evening, but whatever. You ask, I’ll answer. I think. I don’t know how people agree to this before seeing the questions.

So shoot! Ask away and if you are an ass, I’ll just ignore you. K? K!

P.S. I love Jason!  He rocks!

  1. When you and I spend time together, we’ll have to do something else because I hate reality tv. I think it’s just the network’s way of not having to pay actors.

    I do watch the news, though, if that counts. That’s pretty real, too.

  2. I don’t know how people agree to this before seeing the questions.

    This is how: Ask away and if you are an ass, I’ll just ignore you. K? K!

    How did you get into your line of work?

    How did your parents & brother fit into your former life in the church?

    Are you afraid of, as a mother, behaving like your mother?

  3. Only choir directors in black churches wear crazy colored suits!

    Not true. You won’t believe some of the things I’ve seen on the streets of Dallas nowhere near a church and every day other than Sunday!

    I HATE reality TV. I have always hated it and always will. The only one I like is “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” if that counts.

    Yet, my TV always gets stuck on these hideous shows, because Kwesi likes them. So I’ve seen them enough to know that I love Simon and agree with him 95% of the time.
