I probably shouldn’t admit this here, but I’m a huge fan of reality TV. I know. Shame on me. It’s fake. It’s pathetic. It’s an insult to quality TV and actors who’ve honed their craft. I know. I know.
But, I still like it. I have ever since high school. I think that was when reality TV proper was invented, right. In the early 2000s?
Hmm. I’m not really sure since I’m not really a reality TV show historian. I do know that I have long loved reality TV. My first reality TV show was Real World.
My parents never wanted my siblings or I to watch it, but we did, every time it came on. I liked the drama. I liked the entertaining parts of it.
And now, years later, its the drama and entertaining factors that I continue to love. I hardly have time to watch TV anymore, but when I do, when my girls are asleep, it (or reality TV) is my indulgence.
It’s like chocolate cake for me, good in small quantities but very, very good.
So, now I watch Bravo mostly. Oh, and I like Rupaul’s Drag Race. I also like crime shows and Cheaters and… really I like a lot of crap TV.
You don’t think bad of me now, right?
Do you watch reality TV? If you do, what are some of your favorite shows?
