Kait's Reality Reel - Get Your Popcorn Ready

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Hi.  My name is Kait and I'm a reality t.v. addict.
It's just a minor obsession of mine and I have to be honest and tell you that right now my DVR is completely overflowing with reality shows. But for real, how can you not watch something that is so ridiculous?  My husband and I have arguments all the time over my shows.  But hello - baseball is totally reality T.V.  Bam.

I have decided to compile you a list of the shows you must add to your DVR along with an explanation as to why your life may not be complete until you subject yourself to this useless yet oh so entertaining television.

Friends, you are welcome.

  Vanderpump Rules - Bravo, Mondays 9:00 pm

Basically it's the story of a bunch of skinny, whiny and obnoxiously good looking young folk who work at a restaurant in LA called SUR.  I have to admit, the last two seasons were quite juicy but I'm a bit disappointed with the first two episodes this season.  Those who already watch are you already as annoyed as I am with Kristen?  Seriously, how many times can we see her start annoying Tom drama?  While we all know this makes good TV, Vanderpump will take you back to your small town, high school days all over again because no one is saving the drama for their mama on this show.

Kendra on Top - WE, Fridays 9:00 pm
My love for Kendra started years ago when she was such a young lass living it up with Hugh at the Mansion.  At that time I wasn't sure she had more than a pile of rocks in her head at times.  However, after getting into this new series on WE, I'm totally Team Kendra.  Apparently her husband Hank (remember, the guy that lost the Super Bowl for the Colts?) cheated on her when she was 8 months pregnant.  Can I get a UM HELL NO.  This season is an up close and personal look at Kendra and Hank's new family and how they are (or aren't) dealing with this cheating scandal.  If I could knock some sense into this douche bag I totally would...

90 Day Fiancee - TLC, Sundays 9:00 pm
I fell upon this show by accident a few months ago and I tried to stop watching it, but couldn't do it.  Why you ask?  Because some of these people are so desperate for love it is sad.  The basis of the show focuses on couples that bring their fiancee to the States and they have 90 days to get married or get deported.  While some couples are legit, there are a few you want to jump through the screen and shake them silly. Open your eyes, yo! 

Snooki & JWOWW - MTV, Wednesday 10:00 pm

Please don't judge me.  This show is frickin' hilarious.  I promise, no more Jersey Shore antics.  Just straight up funny business between these two.  Trust.

TrueTori - Lifetime, Tuesdays 9:00 pm
Once again, it's the train wreck you can't stop watching.  Last season was when the scandal had recently come out.  This season is how they are still dealing and still fighting.  Of course.  But who wouldn't still be angry after your husband cheats on you while you stay home with your four children.  Be prepared for lots of crying.  Actually, lots of ugly crying.  Sorry Tori.

The People's Couch - Bravo, Tuesdays 10:00 pm

There's no plot to this show.  It's just people watching t.v. and saying the comments you are thinking out loud.  True hilariousness.  It's like watching your favorite shows with your besties only you are watching them on Bravo.  I'm quite certain I could make this show if I tried out.

Are You the One? - MTV, Mondays 10:00 pm
This is MTV's version of the Bachelor but without a Rose Ceremony.  Well, kinda. There are twenty people who have been professionally matched up but are trying to figure out who their match is by the end of the show.  If they figure it out by the tenth match up night, then they win $1 million.   Love or money?  You know what always prevails...

Now this post wasn't intended for you to judge me.  But after looking over my list I'm pretty sure you are by now. It's okay. 
Cause the haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate. 

It's totally okay to watch mindless television. In the end it brings you back to the reality of life and offers you some great entertainment in the process.

Thank you for being a friend.


  1. I stumbled on True Tori just this last week. Oh goodness, it is a train wreck. But I feel bad for her. I just keep watching and thinking the whole time she needs Jesus.

  2. Funny!
    Would you believe that I haven't seen any of those shows? I know what they are, and hear about them through 2 friends. They discuss them so much that I feel like I have seen every season

  3. hahahah I'm with you! I love reality tv too! totally unpredictable and so so easy for us to love and hate!

  4. I used to watch a heck of a lot more reality than I do now. I still watch The Bachelor, Big Brother, Survivor, The Amazing Race and the Real Housewives but that's it. Actually that sounds like a lot, but it used to be more like 20 shows a week. Now I'm hooked on Netflix tv shows.

  5. Hi! That's a great point. Baseball is reality tv! I watch reality but haven't seen these shows. I love The Amazing Race, Survivor and The Voice.

  6. I am right there with you! I love reality tv. My guilty pleasure is Bravo's Housewives shows. :)

  7. I haven't even heard of any of these shows! The only reality TV we watch is Amazing Race. We do watch a lot of TV though, mostly the one hour drama ones, yes including The Walking Dead ;)
