Do you have a thing about Reality TV too?

Some folks ask me why I call this website The Sitcom. Well, a lot of it has to do with the fact that my life is a sitcom. Between cooking catastrophes, dog craziness, two daughters, one hubby and a live-in father-in-law, I have plenty of sitcom worthy stories just drop in my lap! I mean how often do you find exploding banana breadmassive craft fails, and the “Butt Call” phenomenon? Really, I don’t make this stuff up!

But another reason just might be the fact that I am a loyal National Enquirer reader, a starstruck fan of Tom Selleck and Sandra Bullock, and I absolutely love reality TV! Shows like Toddlers and Tiaras, Dancing with the Stars and Amazing Race just fascinate me!

Yes, I admit that I am fascinated by the little fake dentures they use on Toddlers and Tiaras, affectionately called “flippers”. They are used to cover up those unsightly gaps when the poor child does something natural like, oh say…lose a tooth. I think they make them look oddly like Gary Busey.

A spray tanned, big haired, tiny Gary Busey, but Gary Busey just the same. While I really do not get the appeal of mom’s supervising extra spray tans for their two year olds, fluffing up sparkly $5000 glitz dresses and passing out plenty of Red Bull and skittles to keep the youngsters ready for their upcoming “Wow Wear” competition, I can not look away!

waiting in line rage

This post brought to you by Rakuten Global Market. All opinions are 100% mine.

All I hear is blah..blah…blah…

boring meeting

Another day at Suzy’s Sitcom!  And as usual, things are a bit crazy here.  Sometimes I think my brain must look like a hoarder’s house, full of leftover beads, styrofoam, clutter, and sprinkles of glitter.  So full of clutter, in fact, that sometimes other information just doesn’t have a place to perch.  Such as one […]
