America Loves a Brawl between Rich Women but I Don’t – so Long Bravo by NoMoreDrama
The rating have spoken, and I seem to be standing alone on my dislike of Married to Medicine. With a strong lead-in from the Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers, it’s bringing in ratings that are better than Real Housewives of Orange County and around those of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. What I don’t understand – what I will never understand – is why the violence is allowed. In shows like Big Brother cast members are pulled off the show the second they act unstable and are a threat to their castmates. Yet on Bravo they are rewarded for that sort of behavior. Little by little it’s escalated. Ashlee pulling Danielle’s hair, Sheree pulling Kim’s wig, Teresa shoving Andy at the reuinion. Then the Gorga-Giudice brawl at the christening, the Adriana-Joanna slap down at Lisa Hochstein’s house, Toya and Mariah’s brawl on Sunday’s show, and Jersey Brawl just a little over a week ago. And those are the ones that are captured on camera.
Preparing a blog each morning takes a lot of time, and I have been wondering for quite a while now how much longer I’m willing to give to this when I’m starting to despise the entire franchise. I think I’ve reached the end. For the time begin I’ll keep posting show recaps, but no longer recruit for bloggers for new shows. If I have no new content to post, I won’t post a blog. I’m open to suggestions on how to make this easy on all of you, handing over this blog to someone else isn’t really an option in this litigious world where I am ultimately responsible for whatever is written here.
I guess I’m just one in a long line of people that have given up on these shows. I could write a long blog about why, but I think Priscilla Wasilla summed it up better than I ever could when she stopped blogging, with this open letter to Andy Cohen. Andy – what she said.
Dancing with the Stars Results Show by Lisette
Welcome back to the ballroom! The show starts off with a dance that is out of this world…literally the theme is a space dance. It was really cool and Tron-like and was choreographed by Derek and Mark. First round of safe/not safe…Kellie & Derek are safe and Ingo & Kym are in jeopardy. Back from commercial and filler video of the stars commenting on the side-by-side challenge. Onto the encore dance and Jacoby wins it! Woo hoo! He got his nines and his encore. Jacoby is having the best week ever! So are the viewers as it is a repeat Maks performance too 😉 Sometimes the encores are so much better than the first time. The audience agrees as they are so loud Tom can’t make himself be heard. Next round of safe/not safe…Zendaya & Val are safe and Victor & Lindsay are in jeopardy. Back from break and we have a performance from The Band Perry with dancing by Tristan and Whitney. Filler in the form of a video from Len called “A Pep Talk”. I’m sure this is mimicking something but I don’t know what. Next round of safe/not safe…Jacoby & Karina and Alexandra & Mark are safe. Next week is Stevie Wonder week and time for group dances. The two highest scorers, Kellie and Zendaya, will be the team captains and the dances will be the Paso Doble and Samba. Now a Macy’s Stars of Dance performance with music performed by Kerli. Next up a lip synching performance from Selena Gomez. She seems to be singing along to her backing track but the track is so loud you don’t really hear her live voice. Next round of safe/not safe…Sean & Peta and Andy & Sharna are safe. DL & Cheryl are in jeopardy. Tom announced that Sean and Katherine will be married in August to be televised on ABC of course. Sean looked either confused or pissed that Tom was letting this information out. Now for the final safe/not safe of the night…Ingo & Kym are safe so that means DL & Victor are this week’s bottom two. Victor & Lindsay are safe so the couple going home tonight is DL & Cheryl. DL goes out on a gracious and funny note. Remember, next week is Stevie Wonder week and group dances.
