I’m addicted to trashy TV.
Currently, I’m fixated on Rock of Love Bus. Yes, the girls are tacky and dress like strippers, drink too much and get into fights, but it’s like watching a train wreck. I just cannot look away. They’re annoying and petty and stab each other in the back multiple times a day. It shouldn’t be funny, but I think I shed tears of laughter every time I watch.
This is not my first offense. I’ve religiously followed several trashy reality shows – all of the Flavor of Love and I Love New York seasons, not to mention the past two seasons of Rock of Love. On all of these shows, numerous catty women lived in a mansion together, forced to stay three or four to a room, where their tempers flared. Weaves were pulled out, drinks were thrown – and of course, there was the loogie heard round the world.
But, what if you take those girls and put them on a tour bus for an entire season? Closer quarters will surely mean more tension, right? That’s the genius behind Rock of Love Bus. On the first day, the crazy Brazilian chick strangled the stripper girl (I’m not stereotyping here. I actually think that was her job before the show.) Makes for great TV. (Or, really, really terrible TV. Take your pick.)
I’ve yet to figure out why girls keep auditioning for this crap, unless it’s really just an underlying need to make themselves look like giant hoe-bags on national television. I guess some of them really think if they win the affection of Bret Michaels, they’ll live happily ever after. Hello. Newsflash here: There have been two other seasons and the “winners” have not wound up with him!
But that’s okay girls. Keep auditioning. I love the laughs.
