Summer TV just seems to feed my reality/game show addiction!
First off, The Singing Bee is very fun, even though Joey Fatone is even cheesier than he was on Dancing with the Stars. My verdict is still out on this one, but I’ll definitely tune in tomorrow night.
Second, and a little more disappointing (yet somehow still strangly entertaining) was VH-1’s Scott Baio is 45…and Still Single. I was a Scott Baio fan during Happy Days, Joanie Loves Chachi, and of course, Charles in Charge. But I never knew he was such a womanizer! The basic premise is that he’s now 45 and has a long (very very long) string of girlfriends but no wife or family. So he’s hired a life coach who is making him re-visit all of his exes to see what went wrong. (there was a movie a few years ago with this EXACT same scenario called Seven Girlfriends. Tim Daly was in it and it was actually pretty good) Anyway, the Scott Baio show looks a little trashy. I’m giving it one more week. He did reunite with Erin Moran (Joanie) and talk to Henry Winkler (the Fonz) which was kind of cool.
And now for my favorite of the recent reality shows–I loved Victoria Beckham: Coming to America! Posh is really funny. And she has such good hair. A little disappointed that they aren’t doing the weekly reality show they originally planned to do. Nope, just the one night hour long special. But it was good.
And now I think everyone knows why I haven’t made as much progress on my Chick Lit manuscript as I should have! Too much TV!
But I am excited that the e-mail loop is getting started for those of us who will be new to the upcoming ACFW Conference. We are all in the process of introducing ourselves right now and I’m hoping that this will provide motivation for me to turn OFF my TV and write!
