Trash TV

I've come to the conclusion that the more ridiculous the show, the more I love it. Seriously. There are some respectable shows on TV nowadays. The history channel is a noble choice... or even a show to challenge your brain like Criminal Minds or Bones. Me? Nahhhh. Get that crap outta here. Give me pregnant teenagers, drunken Kardashians, or catty fights for a rose any day.

Summer TV is the best... You're usually between seasons of the "good" network shows. Thus, MTV and ABC Family finally get their time to shine... and boy do they shine. Here are my favorite shows this summer... faithfully recorded every week.

1. The Secret Life of the American Teenager

Takes the cake for the most ridiculous show on television. The acting is horrible, the characters are laughable, and I can't for the life of me keep up with which baby is pregnant with a baby. Despite all of that, I am so into this show. I actually teared up two episodes ago when Adrian lost her baby. What can I say? I'm hooked.

2. The Bachelorette

Gets me every.single.time. Every season it's like clockwork. "She's the Bachelorette?!? Oh, I'm definitely not watching this season!" Pshhhh. Who am I kidding. I'll be there every Monday night shouting at the TV to not be such an idiot all the while texting my friends about who we think she'll send home. I even have a favorite every season that I get mighty attached to. This season it's JB..... he kind of reminds me of Chad Michael Murray... fine as heck.

3. Pretty Little Liars

Ok, I may or may not have a weekly watch pary with my best friend Valerie for this one... If a show has me gasping and jumping out of skin multiple times an episode, it's a winner in my book. I'm so anxious to find out what happens that I actually started reading the books as well. I was only a little embarrased when I pulled that bad baby out at the airport this summer next to a guy reading John Grisham. I felt he judged me just a little bit.

4. The Voice

Better than American Idol in my opinion. Great idea/concept. It doesn't hurt that I'm a wee bit obsessed with 2 of the 4 judges. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton could each father a child of mine & I wouldn't even be ashamed. No doubt.

5. Teen Mom
Yet another pregnant teenager show... I might need help. Let me clear one thing up though. The latest season was pure crap... Get those boring kids out of here and give me my original winners. Well, apparently MTV heard my cries because starting in July the original cast of teen mom is back! Cannot wait. I welcome abusive Amber, momma drama Farrah, sweet little Macy, and technically-not-a-mother-so-how'd-she-get-on-the-show Caitlyn back with open arms. Best news all summer.

Well, there you have it.... Let the judging begin.

I Want It That Way

Last night, I did something ridiculous.... I went to a Backstreet Boys concert. Yes, yes... make fun all you want. I had NO IDEA what to expect from this night. Actually, I lied. I had somewhat of an idea of what I thought would go down. The forum would probably be about 1/4 filled with 20 and 30 something year old women screaming at a few out of breath old timers gyrating on stage.

This was only partly true. While the female to male ratio at this concert was about 300 to 1, I am here to tell you that BSB still has it. I lost all pride the second I walked in the door. It was like I was in a trance. If Nick Carter told me to wave my hands, I waved them. If I was told to fist pump, have no fear that I sure did. If someone had recorded me this night, it would have 24000 hits on YouTube because of how ridiculous I probably looked. I also managed to still remember every single word of these songs and belted them out like there was no shame in my game.

Here are some photos of the night:

Starting the night on Beale!

N-K-O-T-B-S-B ( I think I may have even chanted this at several points throughout the night... Oh, the shame.... lol )

Backstreet's Back... ALRIGHT!!!

There is no better way to start the week than a little blast from the past with some great friends! :)
