Mrs. Mommy's Reality Round Up

You know you're a reality TV junkie when...

You devote time and a whole blog post to your favorite (yet ridiculous) shows.  And hope that some of your blog friends will comment so you're not the only crazy person who DVR's all these shows.

Let's talk about my favorites in order of when they come on during the week.  Oh, and can I just say that this past week has been an amazing TV week?  Now that the Olympics are over, so many good ones starting up again.  After the kids go to bed, I lay in bed and watch like two hours (at least) of this crap.

Anyway, let's get started!


I love the Amazing Race and always dream of Tyler and I doing it.  I love when they do All-Stars.  Rachel and Brenden are back from Big Brother and as much as I cannot stand Rachel and her annoying laugh, I am kind of rooting for them.  Other than that, I don't really have favorites.  I think I might like everyone actually.  Usually there's at least one couple that I can't stand, but none of these couples really bugged me in their original season.  I haven't watched tonight's episode yet so I don't know who got eliminated so no spoiler comments please :)


Yes, this family is annoying, but I just can't stop watching.  I feel really bad for Khloe and all the crap she has/is going through.  She seems like the most normal one.  Kim and Kanye are just ridiculous.  I do get a kick out of Kourtney and Scott.  I can't stand Kris.  I love seeing the Jenner's on the show.  They seem like they bring a little bit more "real" to the show.  No matter how much I want to stop watching, I just can't.


Confession - I watch Sister Wives.  I have no idea why, but again, I can't stop watching.  It just intrigues me for some reason.  I love that they are brave enough to share their story (I'm sure the money the show brings helps).  But I can't imagine the backlash they receive.  Obviously I don't understand or necessarily agree with that lifestyle, but who am I to judge?  They seem like very nice people and I enjoy watching.


Oh, Juan Pablo.  I was not happy when they announced you'd be the next Bachelor.  I thought maybe I wouldn't watch.  Hahaha.  RIGHHHHHHT.  At the beginning of the season, people loved you.  I have never really liked you.  Oops, just realized I'm writing this TO you and not TO my readers.  Anyway, Mr. Juan Pablo, I do not believe anything you say.  You are NOT in this for love.  I'm not sure what it is you're looking to get out of this, but I'm on to you.  I won't post spoilers on here (I read Reality Steve's website), but I just can't wait for this season to be over and to move on to the Bachelorette!  Although, I do look forward to Monday and seeing some of the girls call you, I mean JP, out on his act.


I enjoy the Voice, but I have to admit, I really only love the blind auditions.  I usually stop watching after that and then tune in to the finale.


The farther down I get on this post, the more embarrassed I get, haha.  Anyway, another guilty pleasure is all the Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant shows.  Not sure what it is, but I watch it all.  My favorite from Teen Mom 2 is Kailyn.  I love her and Javi together.  She just seems very mature.  She works, she goes to school, and is a good mom.  What are the chances Jenelle is actually getting her life together?  Chelsea...she seems very spoiled and has some growing up to do too.  Leah...I like her for the most part.  She's got a lot on her plate with a husband that is gone all week.  I think she's doing a good job as a mom.


I love the new judges on American Idol.  Last year was a complete train wreck.  I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Harry, but I love him.  I love all three.  I can't decide who my favorite singer is.  To be honest, I don't really love anyone.  I think I tune in for the judges more than the singers this year.


The Real World changed it up this season by bringing in all of the exes.  Not much to say about it other than it's the usual hot mess that I can't get enough of.


I am officially addicted to House Hunters and pretty much anything else on HGTV.  Tyler gets annoyed with these shows and says they make him realize how hard buying and selling a house really is.  I just love getting ideas.  I like Property Brothers and Love It or List It, but I usually only watch a little bit at the beginning and then end.  I hate all the fake fighting and drama in the middle.  I like to see the before and after and that's about it.  House Hunters...I love to see all 3 of their options and try to guess which one they'll pick.  I'm almost always wrong.


This is the first season I've watched Couple's Therapy and it started one Thursday night when I couldn't sleep and there was nothing else on.  I would be ok with not watching this one.  It's really bad.  But I DVR it for those times when there's nothing else on, the kids are sleeping, and Tyler's downstairs working another 2 hours after working all day, coming home to help take care of the kids and then has to work some more.  Oh man, that just made me feel really guilty.  He's working his butt off and I am laying in bed watching Farrah try to figure out why nobody will date her.  Maybe I should get a new hobby.

I can't be the only one who watches these ridiculous shows though if they're still on the air.  What are your guilty pleasures?  I also watch normal shows like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order SVU, but they're not as much fun to blog about :)

Now I'm off to watch the Oscars even though I've never seen any of the movies.  I just like the "show".

Hope you all had a great weekend!
