Good Trash TV

Now that you've all been exposed to my high falutin' viewing of BBC shows, lemme tell you about my love of trash TV. Would you believe that your dear little rabbit used to love watching The Jerry Springer Show?* Sometimes, you just have to have some topless fat chick with your Jane Austen, okay? I'm just sayin'.

But, I'm not talking about any old trash. I'm talking about the good trash. Here are ones that I currently like:

Rock of Love
Flavor of Love
Charm School
Celebrity Fit Club
My Fair Brady
Pick-Up Artist
Scott Baio is 46 and Single/Pregnant
I Know My Kid's a Star

Gosh, I guess that makes me a VH-1 fan, doesn't it? I don't know why, but I just love watching these shows. Where do they find these outrageous people?? It's almost as if you have to have some issues or else you don't get picked to be on the show.

And, those "of Love" shows are ridiculous. First of all, I can't believe they can't get better looking chicks on these shows. (Oh, dear, get ready for sluggy's "you're biased against women" tirade...) On Rock of Love, Bret Michaels said one of the contestants was one of the hottest groupies ever. Wha...? Take a look for yourself:
And, no, I didn't purposely choose a bad shot of her. But, seriously, a hot groupie would be Bebe Nuell:Which is why, even with Steven Tyler's face, you still get:
Okay, let's see the side by side comparison:
One has eyebrows and looks like a woman. The other? Not so much. As G.O.B. would say, come on!

Oh, the second thing about those "of Love" shows that make me cringe is when the dude kisses one chick and then turns around and kisses another one. GROSS. We are talking about deep sea diving kisses here, not pecks on the cheek. YUCK.

But, the ridiculousness of these shows is what gets me watching all the time. It's so insane the stuff they do! This Sunday, I will be watching Viva Hollywood, which is a competition to find the next telenovella star for Telemundo. The previews looked completely crazy, people! And, yes, Mr. Nonny Nu watches with me, thank you.

*I have outgrown Jerry Springer, folks, so you don't have to worry about me.

Nah, I like watching the skanks humiliate themselves too. I'm surprised you don't watch the bachelor, he does the serial kissing too. Bleah. Seems like a good marketing opportunity for a germ killing mouthwash.

Ooh! I used to watch The Bachelor and was going to watch it this season because the guy is English and it's set in London (I think). But, I have just been too busy watching other things. I might rent the season when it comes out! Thanks for the reminder.

Hey, wasn't it on The Bachelor where there was that controversy about the one chick who went into the woods with the bachelor and made slurpy sounds? Geez...not on tape, people.

Dude's from England but it's set in Malibu.

Well, that's how it appeared on air but who's to say they didn't use audio from an entirely different day/time. I find it highly unlikely that people who went to the effort to get away from cameras wouldn't also take their mikes off.

I, too, used to watch The Springer Show when there were actual discussions and chairs for the guests to sit in - but the show lost me as a viewer when they took the chairs away and basically became the WWE where the sole purpose is to have at least two people come out and try to push each other around. It lost all the realism that it previously held. I also am appalled by the audience members who act like they're back at the Roman Coliseum chanting for the Christians to get eaten by the lions. Haven't we as a civilization evolved? I get disgusted with my fellow humans and the degrading state of the world. It isn't entertainment to me to see someone else humiliated. Maybe I'm just a pansy with a stick up my ass.

The other show I really hated was I <3 New York , with the foul mouthed big girl as the alleged object of every guy's affection. That heifer was not attractive at all and I didn't believe for a second that any of the dude's was interested in her.

I do watch The Bachelor and the men on there are usually hotties. I agree that the hottest Bachelor (as voted on in an unscientific internet poll) was the Navy Doctor guy who also was a pilot and Ironman event champ. That stud made me soak my pants as every good Navy guy should. This year's Brit is just, meh!

Of course my favorite reality show, as karaoke God, is American Idol. This year's competitors include an Aussie named Michael Johns, who's quite the stiffner, and a capable singer in the Jim Morrison vein. I'd love to see him don some leather pants.

I enjoy the bumbling buffoon with good heart story, which includes the awkward bachelors (hello Bob Guiney), some dancing with the stars contestants (RIP Adam Carolla) and Scott Baio. For pure eye candy why bother with a half or full hour storyline when you can get instant internet satisfaction?

Dr. Phil is the new Jerry Springer with his super dramatic family feuds but he's so annoying and self-righteous it's hard to watch.

Nonny Nu said...

I totally forgot about I <3 New York!! I really enjoyed that show! Okay, but NY totally looks like Lamb Chop, though, doesn't she?

I can't stand Dr. Phil. I'm glad he got slapped down a little after that Britney thing.

May I propose bonus points for that comment?

I mean, where does that ass-hat get off with his Dr. routine?

He is basically the next Jerry Springer, what with his scrolling "Is your child a beauty queen?" "Experience with multiple wives" CLICK HERE NOW banner ... that's totally legitimate Dr. stuff, right?

Yes, you may! Bonus points granted.

Even barb didn't look a gift horse in the mouth...

sluggy said...

while I like the 6 points I don't think we should set a precedent allowing impostors to answer questions for others... which was disallowed in the past.

Identity of Cl. Panic was verified.

I think the show with the slurping sounds in the woods was Joe Millionaire--that guy was such a tool. And the girl caught slurping posed topless for playboy and a few foot-fetish websites to "pay her college loans." I love trash TV.
