Show & Tell Tuesday: Guilty Pleasures

Hey all! Thanks for joining me today as I link up with Andrea at Momfessionals for her Show & Tell Tuesday series. Today is a fun one- guilty pleasures! Now, I'll tell you that I'm listing what most people would say should be considered a guilt, but honestly, I just love these reality t.v. shows and have no shame to admit it! My life will never be like those featured on the shows, so in a way, they're my version of fictional shows like Game of Thrones is to Robert.

First up, we have Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Sorry, not sorry! I don't look to the girls for their fashion or food choices, but I do think they have a fun sisterhood bond, and I love Khloé! I hope that she finds true love and gets to be a mom one day (and that she'll still lead the pranks against Kris!)


One show Trip and I love to watch together is Lone Star Law on Animal Planet. It is about game wardens in Texas who stop illegal hunting, protect wildlife, and monitor the sale of animals. It's basically the Cops of Texas wildlife. I wanted to be a customs agent when I was in 5th grade, so it's kind of like living out my elementary dreams!


Now, if you've been reading here long, you know that I'm a Bravo-holic. The Mediterranean season of Below Deck just finished, and the latest season in the Caribbean is about to get underway. I love Chief Stew Kate and Captain Lee- they make a great team, and the drama and relationships are fun to watch. Plus, there are some total nut job charter guests!


Another Bravo show that I love is Vanderpump Rules. I really don't love Lisa Vanderpump on Real Housewives, but she is very caring when shown in her work element. I feel a little sad for these people that they're my age and still act like they're in middle school, but it is also really fun to watch the drama unfold. Am I going to be checking out the spin-off starring Jax and Brittany? I've already got my DVR ready to go!


Finally, I live, breathe, and die for the Housewives of EVERY city! I've seen every episode of every season of every city. If I had to choose my favorite city, I'd probably ask to guest star on New York (but maybe just for a vacation episode- I hate cold weather!) And, if you don't believe my die-hard status, I've rounded up my ultimate dream team of Housewives for you:


New York: Dorinda Medley



Atlanta: Shereé Whitfield (With a guest appearance by Kim Zolciak Biermann!)



Orange County: Vicki Gunvalson



Beverly Hills: Erika Girardi



New Jersey: Siggy Flicker



Potomac: Robyn Dixon



Dallas: Cary Deuber



Miami: Marysol Patton (and she has to bring Mama Elsa!)



D.C.: Mary Amons



Melbourne: Chyka Keebaugh



Cheshire: Tanya Bardsley



Do you watch any of these shows? Who would be on your Housewife dream team? Tell me in the comments below, and don't forget to link up with me and my friends for this Thursday's Ladies Who Link. We're sharing more tips for back to school, and I'm going to show you my fashion buys! See you then!

  2. So funny Allie- once in awhile, when I am bored, I will tune into one of the Housewives shows. NY is still my favorite- I miss the days when Bethany and Jill were fighting- those were epic. Then I was OBSESSED with Bethany got her on show and it documented her marriage and pregnancy and in real life, I was so so sad when they divorced...they used to inspire me...sigh

  9. Ok so I kind of want to watch Below Deck now. I will have to look it up. When I go on cruises or vacations, I always think they must see some wild things! This intrigues me! I am watching Bachelor in Paradise right now (head to palm ;). xoxo ERIN

    1. Oh yea- the guests' requests are absolutely insane on these charters! The next season of Below Deck has the original captain and my favorite head stewardess! I can't wait!

  10. I love your commitment to the housewives. There were definitely some seasons I could not get into. My favorite is New Jersey (of course). And I'll admit, some of the NJ stereotypes they perpetuate are very true and on point.

    1. LOL! Do you venture into Franklin Lakes to shop at Posche!?! :)

  11. Oh girl.. you are speaking my love language with the Housewives series. However, I only watch NJ and OC. Give me Teresa any day. I realize she is ridiculous and maybe even a criminal but gosh, she can roll her eyes like no on else.

    1. I actually don't like Teresa at all! I did at first before the prison time, but I was team Jacquelyn for a while.

  13. I have to chuckle because I know nothing about the Housewives. I'm like they have a real housewives of the Potomac?? Is that real? We watched the original in Orange County because it was just up the road from us. And I do like Heather DeBrow. I have given up on KUWTK but I still follow Kourtney on all social medias :) My MIL and BFF love reality TV and Housewives. It cracks me up when they talk about it. So much drama :)

    1. I have the hardest time finding friends who watch the Housewives- everyone likes the Bachelor, and I just can't get into those shows. I used to like Heather, but I think she's become a little too snotty for my taste.

      Delete
  14. I LOVE the Housewives and you have a good dream team! Give me Teresa and Erika and anyone else :) I love them to. Have a great day!

    1. Erika was a pleasant surprise- I didn't think I'd like her, but I think she is a very genuine person. She seems to love big and expects friends to return the same level of friendship, which I agree with!

  15. You are cracking me up. I can't bring myself to watch the Kardashian's. Katie had it on when we were working out the other day and they make me want to come unglued....LOL. You really are a reality TV junkie! I love it. We're throwing our selves out there today friend! Happy Tuesday...hope you are getting adjusted to being back at the grind. XO

    1. You should! She had a keypad lock on her closet because her daughters would always steal her clothes!

  19. Haha. I don't watch any of this, but I do love me some Bachelor/Bachelorette! Except for this last season... it was so lame.

    1. People at my last school were OBSESSED! I met Chris Harrison at an event about 12 years ago, and he was a sloppy mess, so I think that encounter has always made me feel negatively towards the show.

  20. Hahaha!! I enjoyed The Real Housewives of Orange County for a while, and then I just stopped watching. This summer I caught some more episodes, and I feel like I didn't miss a thing! The same people are causing the same chaos! LOL Vicki cracks me up!

    1. Yep, you can pretty much guarantee that Vicki and Tamra love each other and hate each other EVERY season!

  21. OMG some of those are my guilty pleasure too.. except for the Kardashians and Below Deck.. I just started to watch RHW of NY and Auckland. I like Kyle but Erika is my favorite now from Beverly Hills. Atlanta is hard to pick one every season I change my opinion jejej..
    from NY I like bethenny (specially seeing her work with Frederik)
    Have you watched married to medicine - I like this show too.. thanks for sharing..
