Why I Won’t Watch Game of Crowns Anymore

After watching last nights episode I didn’t feel relieved or any better. I stated in this blog post my reasons behind for watching reality shows (and yes I understand how scripted they are). For the first time while watching a reality show I was left feeling not relieved of stress or thankful that that is not my life. No, I felt frustrated and upset.

I think this is the first reality show that I have watched that has made me feel upset.

Why am I upset?

I can deal with cattiness, I have watched enough Housewives reality shows to be immune to the cattiness by now. Still the level of cattiness on Game of Crowns really bothered me and I couldn’t place my finger on it, which is why I continued to watch it past the first episode. I finally realized what about it bothered me last night.

It reminded me of middle school and high school all rolled into one.

I was amazed/disgusted last night by the level of pettiness and cattiness that existed among the majority of the women on the show. These women were all trying to out pretty, out smart, out class, etc the other and were trying to tear each other down in the process.

I knew when I began watching this reality show there would be drama, especially when a Tiara is involved, but it is like these women have never grown up!

If I was in the same situation, I would just love to put on pretty dresses, do the competitions for fun, and if I won I would be happy, but if I don’t I’m not going to go around scheming trying to find a way to get to the top.

It was really sad to see women who talk about the importance of class, grace, poise, etc. demonstrate anything but that. It was really disappointing to see women take bets as to whether or not their friend would win (not classy at all). It was disappointing to see women trying to live vicariously through the children. It was disappointing to see grown up women, who were acting like 12 year olds.

I thought Pageants were supposed to be about being the best women you can be. I thought it was about being a good role model. I thought it was supposed to be fun. These women make it look like hell.

I would rather watch Jersey Shore (and I couldn’t stand that show) than watch this show again, for although the level of intelligence on that show can be debated, at least they weren’t acting like a bunch of catty middle school girls.

Have you seen the show? What are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments below!

For those that don’t know I love bad sci fi movies. I enjoy watching the bad acting, the ridiculous plot twists, and the funny dialogue. I always enjoyed them, but my love for them began thanks to Sharknado and now God has answered prayers of everyone was has seen the first one.

The movie is coming out in a less than a week!

#AskThicke is a Beautiful Disaster

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

 

Woke up this morning and checked twitter.

Boy I am glad I did.

Everyone, even my mom had comments about Robin Thicke.

Hilarious and amusing doesn’t do justice to seeing all the questions being directed toward Robin Thicke.

Seriously who thought that this was a good idea? Don’t they remember/ know that every single #Ask that has trended has been backfired or “hijacked.”

E-Online says it was “hijacked by angry internet trolls. ” Yes, because why can’t human beings be ticked off by a man that wrote rapey music, who cheated on his wife, and is now harrasing her. Yes, there are trolls out there asking really stupid questions, but in this case E! you know he want it.

i know you want it dance

Seriously though hijack.

You make it sound like someone hacked into the twitter profile of the individual that started this hastag and started writing evil hashtags without anyone noticing until hours later.

No, its wasn’t hijacked, it was invaded.

It was invaded by intelligent people that actually respect other women, other human beings, and who happen to understand that no means no. It was invaded and written by individuals that can see through Thicke’s….whats the word???

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley

I remember when I first heard the news. My mother while on her off time at work had gone on to a few park websites and learned that the Jaws ride had shut down.

Someone who worked there leaked to the world that it was because they were working on the new Harry Potter section. A couple months later. Official news is released and sketches are shown.

I was so excited.

You can imagine how I was when I saw this on TV for the first time.

Yeah I was excited.

What am I talking about…I still am excited.

Unfortunately I will not be going to Diagon Alley this year.

It is going to be hard to not look at a bunch of people recording their experiences on youtube.

I have already kind of ruined it for myself by watching the Preview webcast that occurred over the past 3 days.

Besides seeing Tom Felton…

Isn’t he cute :D

My Favorite part about all of the previews was seeing how big Diagon Alley was, especially in comparison to Hogsmeade.

I remember when I first went there how small it was, even after a huge downpour of rain and the park was practically empty.

My least favorite part was that we didn’t get to see Knockturn Alley. I really wanted to see it (and more of Tom Felton).

Did you watch the previews? What are you looking forward to?

If you didn’t watch the previews, check out Universal Studios youtube page. You may have to hunt for it, but its worth it.

There are many things that we do and don’t do in life. Sometimes we do it because we want to, other times we do it because others are doing it, and others times its because it seems to be the norm.

What is something that you haven’t done, yet it seems that everyone and their mother has? Why?
