The Bachelor and Dance Moms

I posted late yesterday and still can't decide if I should blog in the mornings or evenings. I might switch to evenings since we are trying to get the kids to go to bed earlier. I couldn't wait until tonight to post this since I just watched both of these last night. I don't want to forget.

The Bachelor: I want to like Ben. I really did like him on Ashley's season but something about him is bugging me. I enjoy longer hair on a guy (not Fabio long but Tim Riggins and Sawyer long) but his hair bugs me. I want to move it off of his face or mess it up or something. I was so tired of hearing, "She's just her...she's real." Lindzi (I think that is how she spells it) looks old to me (this from a 41 year old) and I want to move her hair off of her face, too. I like Emily. I thought their date was fine. It was a little predictable that the climbing to the top of the bridge date was with the girl that is afraid of heights. She seems very normal and her reaction to Courtney was the same as mine would have been. I cannot stand Courtney. She is a whole lot of ugly as the episodes go on. She is so blatantly sweet to Ben and then a total jerk to the girls. I like Jennifer but she came on a little strong and falling in love? Unless there is a lot we don't see, I don't get it. I laughed when Ben said she was the best kisser...he ought to know, he's kissed just about everyone and it is only episode 3. Kacie B. is going to end up being the "Ashley" of the season where she has a hard time watching him date other girls. Have these girls never seen the show before? Don't they know that is how it works? I liked Rachel and am glad we got to see some interaction with Ben but these girls all looked a little drunk to me at the cocktail party and were not as attractive and all weepy (which we all know happens sometimes when we drink). The whole Shawntel thing was odd and I chalked it up to manufactured drama. I do wish it would have sent Courtney over the edge to make her leave and it came close but then he called her first so she stayed.

Dance Moms: I don't even know why I like this show so much but I do. It is a little like watching a train wreck but not as bad as some of the other shows out there. I can't imagine sending my girls to someone that is so harsh but she is good at what she does so she gets away with it. These moms are something else, too. I feel the worst for Kelly. She is torn with wanting her girls to be taught by the best and feeling like she is torturing them. I thought it was uncalled for that Abby make Holly and Nia feel like her mother doesn't love her because she had to work. I did feel bad for Nia that no one was at her competition for her. You know there is something there, though when you are rooting for Abby's dancers to beat the most annoying dance mom ever, Cathy. She used to be with Abby and then left when Abby didn't tell her what she wanted to hear about her daughter, who I am not even sure wants to dance. She owns her own dance company and keeps showing up to compete against Abby and the whole time, I find myself hoping Abby's girls win. Cathy is not likeable at all and even lied about the dancer's age just so she could beat Kelly's daughter, Brooke. Since Isabella has just taken up dance again after a very long break, this show is one we watch together.

Top Chef: Sad to see Ty-lor go. I thought he was a stand up guy. Project Runway AllStars: Sad to see Sweet Pea go but she was out of her league.

I have to watch Parenthood and Once Upon a hurts my heart and the other hurts my head so I have to set aside a block of time to watch and if you have been reading, you know I don't have that.

I haven't been watching any of the Real Housewives shows because I think all it shows is that all the money in the world can't buy you happiness but some of it could buy me a new house, a new car, a gym membership and a computer so watching it and seeing someone pay $25,000 on a pair of sunglasses makes
me ill.

Just in case you needed a visual on the hair thing. :)
