LET'S COP TO GUILTY PLEASURE
I do not think I have ever published two blog posts on the same day (God forbid), even after my long recent pause. However, a group of my blogging homeys collaborate every two weeks on a Tuesday to sound off about a specific topic. It’s called “Let’s Blog Off”. The current discussion is "Guilty pleasures: what's your favorite show on television?"
Hmmm. First off, let me say that enjoyment and education are available on TV. I believe in watching TV with purpose as opposed to aimlessly channel surfing or leaving it on in the background. It's OK to turn it off and pick up a book (or a Nook) when your show is over! That said, my most embarrassing TV confession would be that I love watching Bethenny Ever After on Bravo. I know. I can't believe it either. Here's how it started. I was captive on a flight from New York to West Palm Beach and wonderful Jet Blue is so awesome with their free-flight-long- cable. I had finished my book, so you see it was a perfect storm that brought me to the wacky world of Bethenny. I really can't stand her, couldn't be more different but I grudgingly admire her success at self-marketing. That is a quality I really really admire. Think Madonna and now Lady Gaga. Bethenny Frankel has that certain something, be it annoying or not. The world is her oyster and she made it herself.
Check out what my fellow bloggers had to say!
