I am one of those people who watches a LOT of reality television. I’ve seen just about every reality TV show at least once and have recorded seasons and seasons of my favorite ones on my DVR to watch over and over again. You know all those Keeping Up With The Kardashians they show on E! and you’re like “Who keeps watching this?” – well, it’s me. I watch it shamefully, but I watch it.
Until now! I am officially purging my DVR of all the reality TV shows and have canceled their recording in the future. Hurrah me!
Ok, I’m sorry, that was a lie. I’m purging my DVR of almost all reality TV and have canceled most of the shows recoding in the future. I am allowing myself to indulge in reality TV that involves people having some sort of talent/competitive edge. So, I’m keeping Project Runway, The Voice, The Amazing Race, So You Think You Can Dance, and RuPaul’s Drag Race. BUT, I am getting rid of…
The Rachel Zoe Project and It’s A Brad Brad World (for the record, I never took sides in their falling out because oh yeah, I DON’T KNOW THEM)
Mob Wives (Too much drama, too much fighting, a lot less mob than you would think)
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of New York, The Real Housewives on New Jersey, (For me, it all started with Jersey…)
Vanderpump Rules (Honestly, I don’t even know why I watched this ever because, whaaaaattt???)
Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Any Kardashian anything, (This might be my most embarrassing one because….again….whaaaaaattt? The point? I can’t find it.)
And I can’t think of any more but I’m sure there were more and I’ve already forgotten about them since I deleted them and that really is a testament to their poor quality and lack of any valuable information.
Why am I doing this? Because of emotions y’all. Why in the world was I coming home after a difficult day at work getting yelled at, just to watch other people yell at each other? Negativity I don’t need ye! And I would often find myself feeling so angry/upset/confused by what I was watching that it just put me in an even worse mood than I already was in. What kind of sense does that make? Answer, none. So, I deleted them forever.
Adieu reality TV shows (some of you). Unfortunately, I knew you all too well.
