I have a secret obsession.
I love The Real Housewives on Bravo. All of them. I watch reruns. I watch new episodes. I’ve been known to hide the remote so that the Baby Daddy can’t change the channel when Bravo or Oxygen has a marathon. I can’t help it.
I’m not sure why I love the show in all its forms. Maybe because I avoid drama like the plague in my personal life. With a 9 month old baby, I don’t have time for anyone else’s drama but hers. Seriously, meltdowns when I take away an empty water bottle. Tantrums when I stop her from sticking a doggie chew toy in her mouth. Lil Bit has DRAMA QUEEN written all over her. I have my hands full.
Or perhaps I love the show because it reminds me that money is easy come, easy go and it doesn’t guarantee you happiness. I’m sure most of my readers have had money troubles at one point in their life, just like me, and it’s easy to think that having more will make your life better. In some ways, it does. But great sums of money also bring their own set of problems. Sometimes, when I’m worrying about saving for retirement or Lil Bit’s college, I remind myself that I’ve seen how money can affect people in negative ways.
So, here’s my question for you: What’s your guilty pleasure/secret obsession? What TV show, music, food, etc. do you indulge in that gives you happy feelings? C’mon! I showed you mine. Show me yours!
