Guilty Pleasures

30 Sep

The Hills is back. And, thank goodness for Kristin Cavallari, who will no doubt bring back the drama and cattiness. While I loved Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, I was growing tired of their intern fashion world. Give me a man-stealing-spunky-troublemaker any day of the week. (Not in real life, of course.)

King of the Crown is a new show on TLC, about a pageant coach (his name is Cy Frakes) from Columbia, South Carolina. For reality show junkies like me, this show is heaven. He tells young women if they need more cardio or if when they open their mouth stupidity comes out. It sounds rude, but he’s incredibly tactful. Well, not incredibly. Just tactful. Interestingly enough, one of his clients is Caitlin Upton, from the Miss Teen USA pageant a few years back (you remember her, the “some people don’t have maps” girl), so you know he has his work cut out for him.

I know what your thinking – you’re judging me. But the way I see it, we use our brains enough during the day – give yours a rest a few nights a week by watching one of these. Or both of them. And The Rachel Zoe Project. Someone take the remote away from me.

    Shut the Front Door! I was totally going to ask you if you watched King of the Crown. I saw it last night and LOVED it!!! my favorite part was when shane was trying to school ms. south carolina on 'current events' and he kept saying 'she's just so precious'.

    OK, I'm kind of hooked on The Rachel Zoe project, but girlfriend is a wee bit too skinny! I'll have to check out King of the Crown.
