I used to be cool.....

Not so long ago were the days that I didn't watch television.
I'm talking over 4 years. I was living in the land of T.V. (L.A.), and I think I was the only person not discussing Mc Dreamy or Mc Steamy.
I would read. A lot. I watched a TON of foreign films, documentaries, and my home away from home was the most fabulous theatre ever.
Fast forward several years...not only do I watch television, but I watch horrific television.
Okay, maybe it isn't horrific in the Judge Judy, Jerry Springer sort of way, but I watch the shows that I despised hearing people talk about.
Real Housewives? Yes to New York, New Jersy and Orange County (sorry Atlanta, I wasn't feeling the love).
The Hills? NEVER. uh, until this year.
The City? obsessed.
Tori and Dean? can't get enough, and felt empty after the finale.
Rachel Zoe? Like that's hard to comprehend.
And now I'm into this styl'd nonsense on Mtv.

I'm pretty much disgusted with myself.
But not disgusted enough to stop.
I even uttered the words "cold turkey" to my husband last night regarding this matter, and I started to get the shakes just thinking about it.

There's got to be a 12 step program for this madness.

I am the same way, although my reality tv obsession takes the form of Top Chef and Project Runway. :)

Still haven't seen The City yet. Maybe I can rent the season on DVD after it's over. And I TOTALLY forgot RHOOC started up this week. Durrrrr. Do you read the recaps on Scented Glossy Magazines? Priceless.
HAZOUN! (My word verification word, and the manner in which I am going to greet people from now on).
