I have a confession to make

Hi, my name is Alli and I'm addicted to the TV show TMZ.

It's sad really.

I watch it every night. Even when I'm really tired and want to sleep, I make myself stay up so I can watch it. I don't even know who half the people they talk about are because I'm so out of touch, but it's really funny. And what I love is that the show doesn't glorify the behavior of the rich and useless (beyond having an entire show about it) but instead pokes fun at them.

I've been using a significant amount of willpower to not get on the website. I'm afraid of what the addiction will turn into if I have TMZ at my fingertips any time of night or day. But I had to go grab the link for this post. I told myself I would not look at the site, but just get the link to make sure it was right. I still had to look. And found out that Shia LeBeouf might not have been the one at fault in his wreck last week. And I'd go get the link for you in case you didn't know about that story, but I must.stop.here.

I'm so lame. You got any confessions?

You crack me up. So what do you think? Was he drunk?

For me it's reality tv and seasons of old shows on netflix. I love summer- 3 nights of Big Brother a week! And the Mole! And Wipeout! So many timewasters.

I just finished all of Veronica Mars, so I'm on the hunt for a new show to obsess over during naptime. :)

Hmmmm....I'll have to check that one out; sounds like it's right up my alley.

I'll admit that I like watching "The Upside Down Show" even when my kids are sleeping!

Have you guys seen The Soup? It's on E! I love it! They mercilessly mock talk and reality shows. But not people who watch them--just the stupidity of the shows/participants. And they use the best scene--like when one contestant cried for his mommy when he lost Design Star. Ryan and I were saying, that's going to be on The Soup! And it was--the clip of the week. I love it!

Sweet Hubby LOVES that show! We just watch it whenever we can catch it which isn't very often.

Haven't seen the TMZ show but The Soup cracks me up! I catch every episode of the real housewives of orange county/New York and now Atlanta. Even though I can't stand those ladies I still have to watch!

Oh no! I've been missing out on a new season of Real Housewives? I love, love, love to hate the NY ones.
