To lift your spirits:

December 10, 2008

Slightly random but cheerful stuff to make you smile… Here’s an article I wrote for Single Minded on being a single mom over the holidays. I wrote this weeks ago – hadn’t read it again until now. And, it actually just cheered me up. Odd. Me cheering myself up. Any hoo… I’m completely insane […]

Must Love Kids: Tracy Paye Interview

July 18, 2008

I still haven’t seen the new Must Love Kids show on TLC … my neighbor is recording it for me, so this weekend I’ll catch it. Just had to pass this interview on in the meantime. Single mom, Tracy Paye is fantastic.

So what do you think about the forthcoming controversy Tracy expects as a fall out for introducing her 6-year-old daughter to the men on the show? I don’t want to say anything until I’ve seen the show but I do know that I love Tracy’s attitude – just another amazing single mom!

Kathie Lee (a.k.a The Idiot) meets Dooce.

May 8, 2008

If you didn’t see Dooce’s interview on the Today Show, watch it here.

You’ll hear Kathie Lee Gifford admit she doesn’t even use computers and then proceed to tell Heather B. Armstrong, “I have mixed emotions about it (her blog), I have to be honest with you – you seem like a lovely lady – but there’s something that worries me about it…the safety issue of putting your kids online.”

Heather then tries to throw it back on her…”well, you live in New York City and you walk down the street…”

Then they cut Heather off and ended the story.

And by the way, here’s Kathie Lee Gifford’s “blog” – which we can now safely assume is a total fake. Too bad the producers didn’t prep her before the show – “Kathie Lee, don’t forget – you have your own blog.” Oops.

Kill your TV!

April 21, 2008

According to Nielsen, the average American watches 4 hours and 35 minutes of TV a day! When I read that stat I nearly fell out of my chair. I knew it was high, but nearly 5 hours a day! What?

I killed my TV two years ago when I left my husband. Most of his waking moments, outside of work, were spent plopped in front of the tube. Our bonding time, in turn, revolved around our favorite TV shows. And when weseparated he took the TV with him.

I never replaced it.

It wasn’t by choice. I was broke, so broke that buying a TV was completely out of the question. Now I could buy one but I won’t. Then I’d have to pay for cable. And if I had one, I know I would watch it. I’d get re-addicted to Project Runway, Desperate Housewives, anything on TLC, re-runs of Northern Exposure, Deal or No Deal…you get the idea. I loved it all. Now I can’t even remember what it’s like to watch TV every night. I don’t even know how I’d find the time.

A Single Mom Dating Show. It’s About Time.

April 14, 2008

I could never do it. Ever. Seriously? Film crews following me around. But I can’t wait to see this show! TLC is three weeks away from shooting Single Moms, a live reality dating show.

Three single moms will be filmed in real time. Men watching the show can apply to date them and then be flown in to meet the moms. According to the New York Post:

In the European version of the show, “Ensam mamma soker,” each of the three moms are introduced through personal ads. Men viewing the show can respond and, after rigorous background checks, each woman invites around 40 men to visit her hometown where they are whittled down to a group of about eight.

Each week another suitor is eliminated until only two are left. Then, the finalists meet the mom’s kids and see if they can fit in to her family.

Read the entire story here.

And thanks to Chrissy over at Glamour who tipped her readers off to the news. This show sounds awesome! A few concerns – namely the kids. Will they be in front of the cameras? How many men will they meet? I’m sure the producers will keep that in mind. Someone is going to have to tape this for me because I don’t have TV. Darn it.

Would you ever consider a reality TV show? Will you watch this show?
