TMI Tuesday – Television And Such.

I started TMI Friday as a play off of T.G.I.F. Then I started doing six word fridays at Making Things Up and changed it to TMI Saturday. Now it will probably be on a random day of the week. I might not even do it weekly, just depends if I have too much info to tell. 😉

I don’t get the popularity of Jersey Shore. I watched a few minutes of it last season and it made me feel stabby.

I do however love Teen Mom, it’s one of my guilty pleasures. I was pregnant with my daughter when these girls were on the first season of 16 and Pregnant. I want to give Catelynn and Tyler a big hug (Catelynn’s mom is horrid to the point where I actually feel sick to my stomach while watching the way she treats her), give a knee slam to Maci’s ex Ryan, tell Amber and Gary to just stay far, far away from each other, and when it comes to Farrah, I’m not quite sure. She seemed really spoiled the first season (I believe that’s her parents doing) but I think she’s finally coming around. Then there’s her mom…

My hubby can’t stand it when I watch that show (I’m lucky and usually have control of the remote) and has told me he would rather watch The Real Housewives of Orange County. He’s HATES the TRHOC but I think he secretly likes it. I’ve see him watching it when he thinks I’m not looking.

I tried watching that new show on TLC, Quints By Surprise, and it made my ears bleed.

I don’t know why but I can’t NOT watch the Duggars.

I also cannot stop watching A Perfect Getaway. HBO has been playing it for the last 2 weeks. It doesn’t help that Timothy Olyphant is in it. He’s a hottie and I’ve liked him since I saw the movie Go. It’s not a good thing since I still have a lot of unpacking to do.

Kate Gosselin has gotten even worse and I get secondhand embarrassment from watching her diva behavior. Can’t even watch the new show. And she punishes her kids….for acting just like her. On the first episode I saw bits and pieces and they did some kind of juicing contest. She said “excuse you” to one of her kids and that was it for me.


When we were out shoe shopping for the hubby, my little girl was toddling around the store and she stopped to wave at a woman. My daughter usually waves backwards (to herself) and the person she’s waving to usually waves back. This lady tells my daughter “You’re doing it the wrong way.  That’s not how you wave!” She was brash but I don’t think she was trying to be mean. Still it bothered me and I felt my mama bear come out. I didn’t say anything but it just makes me wonder what makes people say those kinds of things. I wouldn’t dare say that, not even to my own kid. I think the lady was related to my MIL. 😉

I know I make mistakes when I write and also put comma’s and such in the wrong places. Thing is I don’t have the time to go over my posts with a fine tooth comb. I’m a perfectionist and if I did have the time, I would never post anything since I would always find something wrong. Also my 17 month old daughter likes to “help” sometimes.

I am in the middle of an almond obsession right now. I want them in any way, shape, or form and in anything. That sounds so pervy but they rock my world. 🙂

    I saw Quints By Surprise today for the first time and felt so terrible for them. Downsizing to 3000sq ft? Are you kidding?? *stab* Then I saw my first episode of Kate 8 and I stabbed her, too. I also saw a few minutes of Teen Mom for the first time (it’s like we were watching the same tv) and the couple that were talking to their daughter that they gave up just about killed me. Dead.

      I’m so glad I missed that from Quints By Surprise. I probably wouldn’t have a television anymore as it would have been smashed with the remote. Maybe I just couldn’t hear it through all the screaming from their kids. I’m just counting down to when this dad becomes the next Jon Gosselin. 😉

    I, unfortunately, do no watch any of these shows…my (embarrassing) guilty pleasure is DVR’ing my Y&R and watching it at the end of the week. I know, pathetic really.

    Wow….for a second I thought it WAS your MIL!! How mean…WHO says that kind of stuff to a lil’ one…especially as cute as yours??? 🙂

    As for food obsessions…I go thru those, too. So don’t feel so weird.. 😛
    I go thru a chips & salsa thing often. must go get some NOW! he he…

      It’s always a good time for chips and salsa! I forgot to mention that I used to love Days Of Our Lives but the cast got so young. I felt like I was watching something from MTV. I’m so old. 🙂

    I think my husband likes all the Housewives shows too! And I watch pretty much ALL of them. He pretends like he doesn’t, but I’m pretty sure he likes the drama too 😉

      My hubby has mentioned episodes of shows like the Real Housewives that he’s watched before. Example:
      Him: We’ve seen this one already.
      Me: No, I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen it. Maybe you were watching while I wasn’t around.
      Him: *crickets*
      Busted! 🙂

        Ha ha, I LOVE IT! Totally busted.
        Also… I had four or so of Kate’s shows recorded and I watched one today and I can’t handle it. I was already on the fence about it but she just annoying! Deleted the rest and canceled the series!!

    Haha, I loved this post! I’ve gotta admit that I’m a teen mom fan too. How can you not be engrossed in the exploitations of children who exploit their children. The poor girls are just so so young and facing such tough issues. Its one thing to struggle with motherhood, its another thing to let the whole world see. Rough.

    And about correcting the wave…
    Double you. Tee. Eff?
    I hate, hate, hate when people do stuff like that. It makes my whole freakin day when I see little kids do things like wave at themselves. Why, why would someone want to “fix” that? So frustrating. But I’m proud of your self control and not saying anything. I always struggle around that. Mama bear comes out and there is no telling what might happen!

      I’m surprised I didn’t pounce on her. 🙂 I don’t think I’ll ever understand what makes people say or do those things, especially to kids.
