My (TV) Obsessions this Week

1)  I'm totally obsessed with the Democratic National Convention this week.  I have watched damn near every minute of it.  I'm watching it on MSNBC, because as I confessed to Kim over at Perfectly Cursed Life (she's a "real life" friend too), I have a mad political crush on Rachel Maddow.  I heard her interviewed a couple of months ago on the Howard Stern radio show on Sirius, and she's adorable, in a brainy way.  Love. Her.

Oh, Rachel, you brainiac, you.
2)  Along with my DNC obsession, I'm crazy over Julian Castro's (Mayor of San Antonio, TX and he gave the keynote speech on Tuesday) daughter.  Girlfriend is 3 years old and is a diva in training.  Check out the show she gave to the audience during her daddy's speech.  Work it, girl.

I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth...
5)  You may or may not know that I am a reality TV whore.  I live for reality television.  I'm sorry, but it's true.  Although, so far, I've been able to turn my nose up at "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo".  I haven't stooped that low yet.  BUT, I confess, I am loving "Married to Jonas". 
Newlyweds: Reboot
Now, I'm no fan of the Jonas Brothers, or their music, however, I will say that this show is adorable, in the way that Jessica Simpson/Nick Leshay's "Newlyweds" was adorable.  This is Newlyweds Rebooted.  Following Kevin Jonas (the oldest one) and his bride (I think they've been married 2 years), the show focuses on their relationship with each other, as well as the relationship they have with each respective in-laws.  Mrs. Jonas is sweet, and a bit  Jessica-Simpson-dumb (like when she didn't know prosciutto was pork, even after saying she thought it was like bacon....UM...YEAH...), she seems genuine.  The big issue concerning the Jonas' is having a baby.  Mrs. Jonas is dying to get knocked up (because really, what else does she have to do with her life since she married a millionaire), and apparently this is a problem because the Jonas Brothers are going to be making a comeback concert tour, and who would want to give birth on the road???  What are they gonna do, y'all???  I'm concerned.
4)  And since we're on the reality TV topic -- what the fuck, TLC?  Besides "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" they also have a show about conjoined twins, called "Abby and Brittney" (I think).  I feel like a major asshole just watching the commercials for it, because Abby and Brittney are conjoined twins who have one body but two heads.  It's like I'm staring at them watching the commercials.  Then part of me feels like TLC is exploiting them -- the other part thinks that maybe Abby and Brittney are making some mad coin for exploiting their condition, and maybe that makes it OK?  Either way, I'm not tuning in, nor am I posting pics of them.  Google it if you're curious.
5)  OK, one more reality show topic and then I promise I won't talk about it again in this post.  Ever watch the show, "Four Weddings"?  It is also on TLC.  Premise of the show is that four brides compete for a fantasy honeymoon.  They attend each other's weddings, and rate their experience.  They rate the bridal gown, the reception, the food and their overall experience.  I tuned into this crap the other day and it was a disgusting display of women hating on other women.  During this particular episode, this one bride was BASHING HARD everyone else's wedding.  Best part?  She didn't win, and actually came in 4th place.  I thought that was Karma at it's finest.
Yep.  That about sums it up.
6)  Finally, comedian Steve Harvey has a new talk show that I caught on Tuesday.  I don't know if you like him or not (he is also the host of Family Feud) -- his facial expressions are the BEST. 
You know you said something fucked up when Steve looks at you like this.

1. I can't stand Steve Harvey. I know it's weird, but I just can't.

2. Castro's daughter should have her own show.

3. The Honey Boo Boo thing is insane already. I hope aliens don't find us while this show is on.
