Summer TV sucks. You know what I mean. All the good TV shows end with cliffhangers right before summer and you’re left to wonder “what if” for the rest of the year. In many ways, it’s good…more time for vacation without FOMO (fear of missing out). Luckily, this year there have been plenty of other drama to keep me entertained- the TomKat split (which just meant more cute Suri pictures out and about) and the recent scandal where Kristen Stewart admitted to cheating on Robert Pattinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director.
Plus, musn’t forget about all the hundreds (maybe thousands of) Carly Rae Jepson “Call Me Maybe” memes. BTW, her new video (with Owl City) came out today called “Good Time” (link below). Obviously, doesn’t live up to her first hit. Not even close! But, it’s kinda catchy in a campy sorta way. Literally, I think they’re camping.
In terms of the boob tube, I’ve discovered a few shows that have been great filler. I can’t tell if these shows are really good, or if I’m just going through TV withdrawal, but they keep me entertained.
Miss Advised– 3 so-called love experts in LA, NY, and SF are unlucky in love. Go figure! Emily, the sex-pert radio host, is afraid to commit and seems to only get set up with polyamorous practicing dudes ( I swear, not everybody in SF is like that!). In case you’re wondering what that is….According to Wikipedia, it’s “the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.” The rest of the women are in situations equally as bad.
Pregnant in Heels– Cute maternity concierge with lisp helps soon to be moms with their ridiculous requests….including finding a wet nurse, replacement for botox, and a date for a newly single mom to be (think Dating 101 for Pregnant Women).
Empire Girls– Adrienne (formerly of the Cheetah Girls) and Julissa heat up NY with their Latina flair. They’re both trying to make it BIG in the big apple.
If you have any more good ones, send ‘em my way.
