secrets & lies

I finally got around to watching what I THOUGHT was the season premiere of Desperate Housewives from last weekend and must say that I was sorely, sorely disappointed as it wasn't at all the season premiere but an extended 43-minute long recap of prior seasons. A long, detailed step-by-step recap of each and every desperate housewife's life. So not necessary.

So it turns out the premiere is actually tonight, but I won't be able to watch because I'll be at the Eagles-Giants game. Woohoo! Let's just hope I can manage to not get myself into as much trouble as I did the last time I went to a Giants game! Seriously.

Lucky 13

Yankees FINALLY clinched their playoff spot tonight! Took 'em freakin long enough, but considering how horrid they started the season, I'll take what I can get. 13 straight seasons into the post season... could this be lucky 13?

dancing queen

This is a reality tv blog after all, and this week started a new season of one of my favorite guilty pleasures in the reality tv world ever – Dancing with the Stars! Not only do I love the concept of pairing up celebrities with professional dancers and having them compete against each other, but it also allows me to live vicariously through these fantastic dancers that forever make me wish I was one of them! Yes, in my own secret fantasy world, I want to foxtrot and mambo with the best of them and dance, dance, dance my life away!

Among this season's dancing stars are:

- Jennie Garth (aka Kelly Taylor from my most favorite show ever in the 90’s – Beverly Hills, 90210)
- A Cheetah Girl (no clue who she is but my niece wold be all over it) who is fabulously adorable
- Scary Spice Girl Mel B
- Wayne Newton
- Sports Illustrated model Josie something-or-another (since when do models qualify as celebrities?)
- Boxer Floyd Mayweather, because every season has to have at least one bigfooted athlete
- Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn)
- Marie Osmond
- An Indy 500 race car driver who's name I don't remember
- Abercrombie & Fitch model Albert Reed (yeah he's pretty cute, but kinda dorky looking all at the same time, go figure)
- Soap star hottie Cameron Mathison
- Owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban (you'd think he had better things to do than participate on this show)

This week, the lady celebrities performed one night, the gentlemen celebrities performed the next night, and the on the THIRD night (okay, even I will admit three nights of this show in one week is a bit of overkill), there is a vote off and bye-bye to Josie the model - she really just could not dance much at all, and I had no idea who the hell she was before this week, so the dance must go on!

big brother has failed us

Dick won Big Brother by a vote of 5 to 2 - seriously. What a travesty this season has been and I am glad it is all over. Apologies for the lack of blogging in the past week. It's been a long, tiring and all around painful week for a variety of reasons and so tv hasn't really been at the top of my priority list (crazy, I know).

Fall tv is starting soon, which means new shows, new seasons of old show and just lots of things to watch in general when you throw in baseball and football! Some notables coming up:

- Season premiere of The Office: Thursday, September 27 @ 8PM
- Yet another season of The Simpsons starts Sunday, September 23 @8PM
- Dancing With the Stars: Monday, September 24 @ 8PM
- Desperate Hosewives: Sunday, September 30 @ 9PM

And a variety of brand new shows will I'll do my best to check out and report back on. It's a big day in college football today and so off I go to watch College GameDay...

Danato Debacle

I officially HATE this season of Big Brother. The fact that the Danatos are the top two and have won the game demonstrate all the many, MANY things wrong in this world. blah.

I'm SO PISSED both Jessica and Eric got evicted last week. UGH! Terrible.

Aside from that, I don't have much else - was away this weekend enjoying a beautiful football weekend at Penn State and it was super fun! We pulled off a full stadium whiteout and beat Notre Dame, 31-10. Woohoo!

Come on now, admit it, that looks pretty cool!

A very lovely long weekend filled with various activities including the aquarium, outlet shopping, food and sun comes to a close this evening, which is very sad, but is capped by spending my evening with Justin Timberlake - YES!

A three hour JT extravaganzaa that will be staying on my DVR for a very, very long time :)
