So today is Friday (yay!) and the Bachelorette aired way back on Monday, and I just cannot find the energy to write a complete recap. So If you watched the show, this stuff will make sense to you. If you didn't watch it, then not so much (and what is wrong with you? Why don't you feel the need to waste time watching junk on TV?). Anywho, here are some thoughts ...more
My very good friend, Diane, recommended Blog Her to me. We have known each other since we met on the set of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) season one. As this is my first post I wanted to introduce myself. I am a wife and mother of three children (ages 15, 11 and 9) and I currently work as Art Director or Production Designer for reality television design shows.

I feel like I know them (and their business). And I always, always want to know more!
Is it just me, or, am I right in assuming the obvious: The world is being overtaken by REALITY TV! Okay, in a moment of full disclosure, let me affirm that I do have my picks when it comes to watching the antics of Reality Shows. I think my focus and free time has shifted from being a card holding member of at home daytime soaps (most, if not all of my favorites no longer air) to that of nightime diva fish in a sea of diva fish caught up and thrashing fins & flabbing our gills at the end of some reality tv's hook....more
Do any of my people know any people at E! cable television network? Because I want an audition, stat, for the most amazing, horrific, Frankenstein mash-up reality show competition to occur in these few precious months before the end of civlization: Bridalplasty!
All right, insane reality television fanatics, get ready to add a new show to your DVR list. Oxygen’s newest reality show, “Hair Battle Spectacular” is shedding light on a somewhat underground genre of hairstyling: fantasy hair design....more
