Reality TV Addict?

Logo - Flavor of LoveHow many reality tv junkies are out there? Even though I know in the back of my mind half of the reality shows, if not more, are in fact probably "not real" or "scripted," I can't help but keep my eyes glued to the TV watching. Consume my life with them? Maybe. Now I know I'm not the only one out there that jumps up every time they come out with a new one, now am I? As amazing as it is, we all have to admit that we like the drama circled around these shows and the people in them. We rather watch their drama then be in any drama ourselves, which is understandable. But the more celebrity reality TV shows they come out with, the more I start to wonder if it's all a big ass publicity stunt.

Okay, so MTV is bringing back bi-sexual beauty Tila Tequila for a second round with her "A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila 2." Can't say I was too big a fan of her first love triangle she had going on, but she keeps the ratings high because of the show's sex twist. Now I have to give Flavor Flav his props for his ability to bring so many desperate women together in one house, who will do just about anything to become Flav's next leading lady, lead him on, then leave his ass. I kind of feel bad for the guy, sometimes. And from "Flavor Of Love" to celebrity addicts, I mean "Celebrity Rehab," to "Celebrity Fit Club," VH1 is the top dog for coming up with so many celeb reality shows. Although MTV has been in the game a lot longer with their "Real World" series, but it looks like players like BET are starting to catch up with "College Hill," which I have to say is doing pretty good, loved the "College Hill Interns." And they've had their share of reality music TV like when they came up with the group Fatty Koo, by the way what happened to those guys? Now they're doing it big with "Iron Ring," so we can watch ballers like T.I, Ludacris, Lil Jon, and the Dipset crew lead MMA fighters to victory.

Yes, we love to hear about the breakups and fights after these shows are done, especially on their reunion shows, like Ms. New York, who has indefinitely called it quits with Mr. Tailormade, or when Flav's new girl does leave him for fame again, we'll hear it and look forward to more, while thinking to ourselves "Well hey at least that's not me!"

I think I find it even harder to keep up with all these shows like "Dancing With the Stars," "American Idol," and every other singing and dancing competitions they have out.

"Rock the Cradle?" I don't know. We see this episode everyday. So I was thinking, if another celeb came out with their own show, saying they trying to find love, who would you want it to be? Now I was going with Ludacris or Bobby Brown. Then I started thinking, Luda is too decent for that, so then there's Bobby Brown. I could definitely see that happening. What about you? Holla at me and let me know.
