I also do not watch top model, hell's kitchen, or alot of the vh1 stuff, like rock of love (which my brother and his wife are really into). I did watch true beauty but was not that into it. I usually dvr'ed it and watched it when I had nothing else to do. The finale is this upcoming monday. It was ok, sometimes seemed a bit cheesy, it was a good concept for the show, but they definitely could have done more with it.

HRobinson-I watched True Beauty this season, I know its Jullia that wins, I have known from the first show. Though she does seem fake with her niceness but its genuine by her actions, talking to the outcast, consoling the crying makeup artist etc.

I like regular apprentice also, I have never seen celebrity apprentice but sounds like it may be worth a watch.

Idol...anyone? I can't get away from it, its on like almost every night of the week!!!

Anyway, no, this first trimester has been at a snails pace, always freaking out about losing another baby. I am in denial I think. Its like I started to believe I didn't deserve to be a mother, I know that is harsh but I still think they will be taken from me. Its a nice reward after losing my aunt to Pancreatic cancer last year, I took care of her with my mom plus the three lost miscarried babies. Four family members in one year, I nearly gave up on the world and life. Gosh, talk about a reality show!

babyhope- How did you know it was julia? That was my guess anyway, but how did you know from the beginning?

You probably missed my post earlier, but yes, I am watching idol. So far, Danny Gokey (the widow) is by far my favorite. I liked him during auditions too. I do not like tatiana and I am glad she did not make it to the top 12 so far. I was kinda suprised that the oil rigger made it, and suprised that Anoop did not. Does anyone know how they will get the last 3 people for the top 12? I am guessing each week america will pick 3, but that only equals 9 people. In past seasons, each judge got a pick, but this season there are 4 judges. Maybe they will have a wildcard round or something. If the judges pick, I think anoop still has a chance, I thought he was good.

Babyhope- I bet your next trimesters will move quicker. The babies will be here before you know it! And you definitely deserve to be a mom...look at everything you have gone through to be a mom. You don;t even have the babies yet, and look at how much you have sacrificed. IVF is such a hard process, and anyone willing to go through it has got to be cut out for motherhood, and all of these children will be blessed with loving homes. Someday they will know how badly they were wanted in this world. Try not to be so hard on yourself, and try to enjoy the rest of this pregnancy.

Esperanza- Ha ha, you are officially addicted :lol:

I also can't wait for next week. I, on the other hand, am hoping for molly to be the winner, but I think it will be Melissa. Melissa just seems to young to be a stepmom. I think she is a very nice girl, but I think a lot of her responses with Jason seem like she is trying to hard. I think everything seems much more natural with Molly and they would have a better chance at lasting.

I had a feeling they would be hinting at Jillian being the next bachelorette. I don't know how I feel about that. I was hoping they might ask stephanie, but I didn't think that would happen.

Did anyone watch the race on Sunday? I still really like the team with the deaf son, I hope they win. I am kinda glad the self=proclaimed "hicks" went home. They wouldn't have lasted anyway and it was frustrating to watch them mess up so much, but they seem like a very loving couple.

Babyhope- You were right about true beauty, Julia won, but how did you know that from the beginning?

Ok, I guess half of biggest loser tonight and no idols until tomorrow, all b/c of the state of the union tonight.

Hi ladies!
How have you all been doing?? Babyhope- all the best to you. I can't imagine everything you've been through. I'm currently 18 weeks and though it's my first pregnancy, the process and pressure of IVF has me terrified all of the time that I'll lose this baby. Even now that I'm not sick every moment of every day - it's almost scary to feel GOOD because I feel like I'm not pregnant. I never realized how mentally tough being pregnant was.

The reunion wasn't that revealing but now that they showed more previews for the "after the rose", I do think it will be Melissa. I like her, but she always seems like she's the little girl with the crush on the older guy. I think Molly is more stable but because she's been so guarded maybe he's afraid that she'll pull a Deanna on him? I don't know. But I'm completely addicted and thank god for this message board because my husband is definitely sick of me talking about the Bachelor!

Did anyone else think that the contestants on Biggest Loser (and Bob) were almost too emotional about switching trainers? I was kind of surprised at Bob's reaction. My thought was - they're all still on the show, still get to work with an amazing trainer that will get their weight off, and switching up their routines right now might be a HUGE benefit. I just think that any one of the contestants at home would LOVE to be back on the ranch, regardless of who their trainer is - I think people tend to get into a routine and get scared that they can't keep posting good numbers if they switch it up a little.

I know that it's not a reality show - but does anyone watch Lost? I have coworkers that have a little club and meet the morning after the show to discuss the episode. I've never watched it but I might start watching some back episodes to see what I think.

Hope you're all having a good week!!! I can't wait for Spring - we had a few 60 degree days in Ohio and it was the highlight of my month!!!

Okay, here are my thoughts on our shows from this week. Bachelor: I LOVE Melissa. Probably because she is a Texas girl:) However, I do not think he will pick her. I could not believe one of the clips that they showed, when she was at his house waiting for Jason to put Tye to bed and she was actually tapping her fingers, looking quite annoyed. I think the two of them have some great chemistry, but I don't think she is mother material at this point. She is young and still needs to figure out what she wants in life.
I do think he will pick Molly. They showed many more moments of he and Molly together. I dont' think there is as big of a physical attraction there, but I think she is better suited for him.
In all my Bachelor watching, they never pick who I want them to.
I am intrigued by the follow up.....wonder what happens.

I hope they don't use Jillian as their next Bachelorette. I liked her and all, but I would like to see someone totally different.

I thought Stefanie looked fabulous though:)

Biggest Loser- I know what you mean about everyone getting overly emotional, however, I totally understood it. I think it would be terribly hard to work with someone, who has worked their tail off getting you where you are and then going with someone totally different who doesn't know you the way your trainer does. I do think it will be good to see a differentn workout, but.....
I hate how the brown team got broken up. I think the dad will be gone this week.
Can't wait to see it tonight:)

Oh my goodness, I can't believe I missed the one episode of the biggest loser that I was really looking forward to! We went to a one year old's birthday party last night and for some reason, my dvr did not tape it! Ugh, I know no one got voted off since it was a half episode, but I know the teams split and I really wanted to see that! Someone needs to fill me in on who is on who's team!

Tiger- Those were the words I was looking for! Melissa is totally crushing on an older guy, like it's cool to like the older guy, but all of that will wear off when she realizes the responsibility that comes along with it.

Anyone watching the race? I still like the team with the deaf sona dn I hope they win. I love watching that show, the places they go are so beautiful, and I will never go there, so I have to live in vicariously through my HDTV. I knew the self-proclaimed hicks would not last.

So Idols tonight, and tomorrow, and survivor tomorrow. Last week on survivor when the black girl (can't remember her name) said her husband was Eddie George and all the guys freaked out b/c he was famous or something, I looked him up. I then saw that the black girl, maybe taj was her name, use to be in the girl group SWV. I then noticed under her name where they post the person's job said "fallen pop idol." I think she is not going to reveal that, she is keeping it quite secret up to this point.

Ok, until tomorrow.

Tiger- btw- I do not watch lost myself, but my brother and his wife are addicted to it, and so are a bunch of my friends. I never watch it because I hate starting those shows a couple seasons in. Thats why I like the reality ones, because no matter what season you start on, you never feel like you missed anything. But I am sure you would like the show, everyone seems to love it.

CT_Michelle-I just had a feeling Julia would win True Beauty because she was passing all the challenges. Also, a pagent person is to be a good role model and understands how her actions speak of her. The others seemed to be behind the camera and didn't get that part.

Esperanza-I think it was you that said they watched the bravo reality shows. I do to! I am a junkie and since I am so drained of energy I sit on the couch and watch their marathons on the weekends (between three hour naps) urg! I used to play soccer and work out 5 hours a week now I can't get my heartrate up above 140 which restricts me to walking on a treadmill...anyway, I watch Top Chef, I hope Hosea wins (I may be a little behind on the show) but it was down to Hosea, Stephan and Carla. I like Carla also, Stephan is talented but cocky and I don't like that.

I also love the millionaire matchmaker, she is so harsh it is funny. She is right, people would walk over her if she wasn't so aggressive. I disagree on her fashion taste, that men like women to look like hookers. I dont' think they will see them seriously like that.

Bachelor-I think it will be Melissa. They always build up the one then it turns out to be the other. I am not surprised they hinted to Jillian being the next batchelorette and not Stephanie because Steph has a baby, it may be harder for her to commit, I know Jason did it and all but I wouldn't be surprised if she turned it down first.

Biggest Loser-I like Bob but I like the "team" he had that mostly went to the blackteam. The strong players like the two Hawaiian guys, the "green" team, I don't like them per se but they are pretty good. I think it was a big mistake to send Dane home, they need him for the team and not elimanate him as a threat...good thinking on Ron's part however.

Goodness- so many shows to keep up with!

Biggest loser- I was able to download the episode I thought I missed on Tuesday b/c of my stupid dvr, and I watched wednesday. I think the team switch up was mean, why can't they just stay the way they are? I feel bad for a bunch of people. I am really suprised Dane went home. Obviously they are still voting with their hearts instead of their minds. Dane would help them with weigh ins for now, but would have been a big threat later. Ron really needs to be there and I doubt he can do this at home, so I am glad he stayed.

Survivor- I do not like Coach! He is arrogant. It is still too early for me to have any clear favorites, but I definitely do not like coach and I hope he goes soon.

Idols- I joined a local parents group so Ella could make some friends and one of the parents in my group is from cali and has a musical theatre company that her sister now runs. She is friends with Adam who sang the rolling stones song and he got into the top 12, so everyone in the group is kinda routing for him. Even though I did not think Nick "Norman Gentle" would get in, I did find him highly entertaining and thought if he took it serious for once, he would have been a great singer. Of course, only 2 yuppies from CT could raise a character quite like him!

Esperanza- I also like millionaire matchmaker, but only wathc it when it is on a marathon on the weekends usually. I don;t even know when new episodes are on. The lady who runs it tells it like it is for the most part. But I don;t think many of those relationships last. Obviously the women who apply "looking for love" are really looking for something else, and I don;t know how many relationships based on money can really last. What would happen to them in todays economy, when the money dissappears?

Ok, and now that I have rambled about my reality tv, it is time for bed! Talk to you all soon, can';t wait to here what you all thought this week.

Hi everyone!

I have to say that I was really surprised at the vote on Biggest Loser. I thought Dane had the best "staying power" since he consistently did well and seemed to be really dedicated. But maybe he was a threat to some of the people in the group (plus, Ron does seem like a really nice guy and it seems like he's formed alot of relationships with people there). Either way, it will make it interesting. But I don't know how much longer Ron can last considering he's pretty limited physically. I think this season, more than the others, they keep throwing in twists. I hated when half of the group when home in the beginning and although I wasn't totally against the teams being switched up - it has to be hard being there, getting used to a trainer and then have to switch your entire routine and focus.

Okay, girls - I read some dirt on the Bachelor and I don't know whether or not to believe it. There was an article in Us Weekly that said that they're throwing a huge twist in for ratings. Apparently, Jason proposed to Melissa at the final rose and she flew to Seattle regularly to go see him afterwards. But apparently at the "after the final rose", Jason decided that he made a mistake and should have been with Molly. So he dumped Melissa and apparently at some point proposed to Molly. Then there's supposed to be a second "after the final rose" the next night. I can see him being confused - since all of the previews talk about how he has no clue what he's going to do - and I can see a big dramatic after the final rose, since they hyped that - but he doesn't really seem like a guy who proposes twice in a short period of time. Or doesn't know what he wants! I don't know! I guess we have to wait until Monday to find out.

Hope you're all doing well!

tiger- oh my goodness! I couldn't believe that possible rumor so of course I googled it. My guess was that the part 2 of after the rose was going to be dedicated to the first meeting between jason and melissa's parents since the didn't meet on the show, but this puts a whole new spin on things.

So the biggest rumor is what you said, he will officially break up with melissa and propose to molly on part 2. If the rumor is right then molly and jason are already dating so I guess she would say yes.

Jason was on the view and he was asked if he was engaged, and his reply was he is totally in love, but when they asked him again if he was engaged he said you would have to wait and see. When he did talk shows a month ago, like ellen, he said he was engaged. Then they brought up this very rumor, and he said he wanted to address the rumor that this was all a set up/conspiracy, and he said he would have never agreed to do that, but he didn't deny the break up. You can watch this all on youtube.

Of course some other rumors are floating around too, like that part 2 is a wedding, which is why on the previews they were in tuxes, or that he will get back with his ex-wife, or that he may be back with deanna, but i think the rumor tiger brought up seems like the most likely one.

the only thing i know is that i can not wait to watch!
