All New Low

Thanks to my beloved reality tv, I've stooped to an all new low. It's really nothing new that VH-1 has successfully taken any decency (and there wasn't much) out of reality love shows - For the Love of Ray J, Flavor of Love, and I Love New York to name a few.

But last night as I was flipping during commercials, I came across Rupaul's Drag Race Season 2 (yes, horror of horrors, I managed to miss the first season somehow). This particular episode caught my attention because it was a blatant ripoff of the popular, Project Runway. The queens had to create their own runway attire and present both that and themselves to the judges at the end of the show. The bottom 2 then had to sing for their lives to remain on the show (another ripoff).

Also in typical VH-1 fashion, each queen has been given a special name, all of which are female of course. Some of my favorites were Jujubee, Tyra, and Jessica Wild. These women, er men, have such sass and style that I found myself getting drawn in. So besides the fact there were really no redeeming qualities of the show, somehow I found it hard to turn it off and go to sleep. It's not going on my dvr list but I'll gladly stop and watch it again if I'm flipping.

Queen or no queen, Ru is one pretty lady!


  1. I don't know exactly what this says about me but I may (okay - I so did) have watched EVERY episode of Rock of Love (and ROL 2 and ROL Bus).

  2. So let me get this straight: You think I'm weird for reading the Twilight series, but you watch reality-drag TV??? I can honestly say I've never seen this show. Please don't mention it to my husband, though, or I may be subjected to it against my will.

  3. Wow – I’m really missing some gem U.S. television these days. After hearing all the hype, I’m tempted to download The Jersey Shore,,, but feel a little too dirty even thinking about it.

    Anyway. I just happened upon your site whilst blogroll surfing for new recipes. Everything looks wonderful; I think I’m going to have to make the White Chicken Chili this weekend. Thank you so much for sharing!
