What I'm Watching: Summer Edition

IT'S WEDNESDAY! Sure, it'd be cooler if it was Friday, but let's just be happy with what we're given, shall we?

Fully intended to give you a summer reading list today, but alas, I don't have time. There's something called work that needs to be done, and a reading list requires thought.

A television list, however, does not.

As you may or not know, I love television. I could (and do) spend days just watchin' the tube, and it's how I prefer to spend most evenings. But TV in the summer is hard to come by, unless you're me, and you have the innate ability to pick some of the worst best crap on TV to entertain yourself.

Well, that's not true. A lot of the show I watch are TRULY good television, but many, I'm afraid, are not. Either way, if you're looking for a way to spend a rainy day this summer, do yourself a favor and track down any one of these shows for pure entertainment.

Laguna Beach/The Hills: They've been playing both from the beginning on MTV's "RetroBrunch." I discovered it one morning last while getting ready for work and got so addicted (again), that I almost called in sick to work. Instead, I hit 'record' on the DVR and have since recorded the 5-6 episodes they play every morning. IT'S AMAZING, YOU GUYS. It's kind of fascinating to watch it so many years later, knowing where all these people have ended up. I've also taken to looking everyone up on Instagram (and following them), and Googling where they are now. Let me add: Heidi has been a train wreck from the first time we saw her in Season 2 of LB. Also let me add: Season 3 of LB sucked.

Real Housewives (of New Jersey and the OC): Ya'll know how I feel about Real Housewives of (Insert City Here). They are the craziest bunch of bitches I have ever watched, and I can't get enough. Currently, the New Jersey cast is at some retreat to try and fix Teresa's crazy, and they have to call the police due a Guido fight breaking out. In the OC, the ladies just finished up with a trip to Whistler that involved fights on top of a mountain and one of them getting her tongue stuck to an ice wall. (I did that once. Licked snow off the bumper of a car and my tongue got stuck. #thathappened.)

Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas. This is a great show to watch if you're looking a boost in self-esteem. It features five couples, each featured on a past episode of Bridezillas. These couples are having marriage problems (usually due to the wife being a raging bitch), and are now seeking counseling by staying in a house with other couples who have issues. They have daily activities and counseling sessions, and it is really just drama, drama, drama. Perfect to have in the background while you're cleaning, folding laundry, etc.

Mistresses: I was hesitant to watch this show, mostly because all the previews played that stupid Selena Gomez song. But, when searching Hulu at the gym for a show to keep my occupied while on the treadmill, I gave it a try. It's full of beautiful women, gorgeous men, steamy storylines, and even murder. It's not all about being unfaithful as the name implies, but each woman has her own tie to the word "mistress" and the stories are actually really engaging.

As for the good TV I'm watching: It's pretty much only Dexter, The Killing, Ray Donovan and soon, Breaking Bad.

What's on your DVR?
