Reality Bites

May 24, 2011

Did you ever see that movie? With Winona Ryder? (Her real name is Winona Horowitz, by the way).

I saw it a long time ago. All I remember is a scene where she calls a psychic hotline and eats a lot of snacks. It must’ve been the snacks that I remember. This tells you what my priorities are. I love snacks.

Anyway, I have been thinking today about reality TV. (While starting to watch The Bachelorette last night — which I turned off after 15 minutes after an overdose of hair-gelled dorkness.)

I was thinking about how reality TV would be so much more interesting if they mixed it up a bit.

For instance:

Survivor meets the Bachelor, in a reality series that I call: Bachelor Island



The premise: 25 woman fight for one man’s love as they try to survive on a deserted island. There’s no  lipstick, no shaving and no deodorant — but maybe, just maybe, there will be true love. I’m also thinking that the “dates” could revolve around things like finding food and shelter — or treating insect bites.

First date on Bachelor Island:

Doesn’t that seem romantic?

Or maybe 19 and Counting meets Sister Wives meets The Real Housewives of New Jersey in a reality series that I call:

19 Italian Wives & Counting.

“If you’re gonna mess with my sister wives…you’re messin with me.”

And the final series on my imaginary reality TV channel would have to be American Idol meets Cops.

Cops, you say?

It’s still one of my Dad’s and hubby’s favs.

But in this version, J.LO., Randy and Steven Tyler arrest the criminals — and then judge their crime.

Introducing Celebrity Judge Cops:



“That break-in was beautiful. Just beautiful.”

Would you watch? Maybe I’ll create a reality show called extreme blogging.

Where people are tested on their typing speed.

This is good stuff, people.

On a related note: American Idol finale tonight!

    The quote I remember from Reality Bites is when Ethan Hawke says to Ben Stiller “you look like a doily” when he comes to pick up Winona Ryder for a date 🙂 That entire scene is hilarious!
