I’m going to admit something that I might regret: I love watching reality shows whenever I get a spare minute. Lately I’ve been finding myself glued to the screen when there’s a new episode of “The Bachelorette” every week. (So good!)
I know you probably think I’m crazy, but here are the main reasons why I love reality TV:
1. The celebrities are so real. (OK, I know they’re totally scripted. But at least we know it’s the real “them” we’re seeing.)
2. They soooorta make me feel better about myself. Some of these reality stars are downright crazy and I’m always less so in comparison.
3. The ridiculous makeup, hair and fashion trends. Duh.
Seriously, I can’t believe some of the looks I see sometimes. From Snooki’s fake bake to Heidi Montag’s face, they make me shake my head and wonder … why?! Obviously, their personalities might have something to do with it too. But in reality (ha), there’s no excuse for some of these getups.
And lastly, I totally get a thrill from watching reality shows when I’d rather keep it a secret. I guess it’s just the “guilty” part of this guilty pleasure of mine. (‘Fess up — you pretend you don’t care, but you sooo do.) Because, honestly — who wouldn’t want to spend their entire weekend watching a marathon of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”?
