Cry Every Show

Mom and I (usually not together though)(but often call each other) always watch Biggest Loser. Last season and this one that started Tuesday night, are Biggest Loser: Families. It's teams of two and some are married couples and some are parent/child. These are more heart tugging for me than just the non pared up shows.

The show is filled with lots of good tips and motivation. It is extreme, yes. All these people have to do is focus on losing weight- they are at a special "camp" with diet food/healthy food and they exercise all the time. They have personal trainers that kick their butts every step of the way: Jillian and Bob.

Ultimately though, the reason I love the show is because it shows that the true way to lose weight is to eat less (better) and to exercise more. No fad diets, no pills, just hard work. I love that. The show also, of course, shows these people who I KNOW. I can identify with so many of the emotions and the frustrations of these people.

Well, I don't have someone telling me, "Unless you faint, puke or die, keep walking." Which is what Jillian says to her team on Tuesday night's epi.

Shoeaddict Says

I got all caught up on ANTM, GG, and BB10 this weekend. Let's chat about those shows and also, let's talk about THIS which is a big deal to me. BIG.DAMN.DEAL.
*Beware of SPOILERS! If you are not caught up on these shows, don't read yet, 'k?*

Lemme just get out some of my first thoughts (that I remember now)- I know that it's your show TYRA and I know that you were/are a model. Everybody knows that, but really, get over yourself! I cannot believe that there are still so many girls interested in spending so much time in a house filled with HUGE pictures of Tyra Banks smiling with her eyes. And I can't believe that I still watch the damn show, but I do.

Isis the "transgender"- hmmmmm, I've really thought about this one. I do understand that some girls are uncomfortable and confused. I'm a small town girl and have lots of questions about pre-surgery transgendered girls. I'd wanna know, what is different about you (Isis) than some cross-dressing man? Then I saw that she is taking shots and I know that they don't just give that stuff out. I cannot imagine her life. It's not for me to judge or know so whatever. I don't see the great beauty though. If we are supposed to see her as a regular contestant than I'm going to do that.

Gossip Girl
How much do I love the Blair and Chuck stuff? Serena and Dan were soooooo sleepy boring in the end. Blair and Chuck are electric hot!! I don't know about this new twisty Nate/Catherine, Duchess/Lord stuff but I like the one uppers with B and Bass-tard. I hate Chuck's hair. I love Blair and Serena's looks in the past two episodes. Serena's dress and hair at the White Party in the Hampton's- HEART STOPPING.

If Vanessa and Rufus get together, I will puke.

Big Brother 10
I would vote neither. I don't like either one at this point. I liked Keesha the best. I think that Dan will win though.

Okay- I think that there are good arguments all over the Internet supporting that either Brandon, Dylan or Steve are the father of Sammy, Kelly Taylor's son. We will supposedly find out who he is on Tuesday's show when Brenda says his name. Here are my (100% dorky) notes on the subject:


  • Kelly said she was talking to Sammy's father. She told Brenda and Nat that she talked to Brandon. BUT, isn't that obvious?
  • She has history with Brandon (she said she had history with Sammy's father)
  • Brenda would be Sammy's aunt and would want to be near her nephew. She could just want to be near her friend's child.
  • Brandon was/is very responsible and would take care of his child. He grew up in a stable family and had two parents who were always there for him. I'd think that he'd want that for his child, too. He is gone for his job- a journalist? Wouldn't your child come first if he/she was a priority?
  • Jason Priestly has said that she does not want to come back on the show as Brandon Walsh. He may come back as a director. Maybe it's a lie to throw us all off. Maybe they will just use his name.

    • Dylan

      • When the original show ended, Kelly and Dylan were together. They had finally given into their true love for each other.
      • Kelly and Dylan had history in high school.
      • I think it'll be more of a surprise and drama if it's Dylan. Brenda is on with Kelly!
      • Dylan is a bad boy. He is irresponsible and an alcoholic and has had problems with drugs. He has problems with commitment, too. He had a troubled relationship with his father and a tumultuous childhood. I'd think that he'd want better for his own child.
      • Luke Perry has said that he doesn't want to appear on the show either. See above.


      • Kelly and Steve dated Freshman year in high school and it took Steve years and years and years to get over her. By the end of the original 90210, Steve was married to Janet and had a daughter, Maddie. Kelly and Dylan were her godparents.
      • Sammy looks like Steve with the blonde curly hair. Kelly has blonde hair too.
      • Steve's mom's name is Samantha and so maybe Sammy is named for her.
      • Steve would be a big shock- he's not Brandon or Dylan.
      • Steve was married when we last saw him so maybe that is why he is not with the two. Steve was adopted and he was obsessed with finding his birth parents (then later found out that his "adopted" father was his birth father") so why would he do that to his own child.
      • I have heard two different things about Ian Ziering and his stance on appearing on the new 90210- that he would like to and that he would not like to, so there you go. Or not.

      I really would love to see some more of the original cast. The whole show should be- Beverly Hills, 90210: Married, Children & Middle Age. I would definitely watch.

      What's On

      I'm changing this section up unless someone leaves me a comment or emails me (shoeaddict17 @ gmail dot com) to tell me they like it the other way. I'm just gonna tell you what I'm watching and what is NEW as in premiering, not new episodes. BUT, if you have a question (Is _ new or a rerun tonight?) just ask and I'll be happy to let you know.
      *Remember that I'm in the Central time zone so all times here are as such*

      7:00- Gossip Girl CW
      8:00- The Closer TBS (I love me some Kyra Sedgwick and Jon Tenny)

      Have you heard about the Coco Chanel movie on Lifetime? It premiered on Saturday but it's been replaying. If you are interested in watching, it comes on tonight on Lifetime at 7:00. I DVR'ed it on Saturday but I've only watched about half. It's decent.

      Are you interested in THIS new movie? Well, it was a Broadway play first and then a movie in 1939. That first movie, staring Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer, is playing on TCM at 7:00. I'll be DVR'ing that.

      What are you watching?

      New For the Weekend

      Weekend= Friday and Sunday night shows

      Oct 17, 8 PM
      Staring- Philip Winchester , Sam Neill, Anna Walton , Sean Bean
      It's an action adventure drama based on the classic novel by Daniel Dafoe. It's set on location in South Africa, but no one has seen it yet.
      -I'm not gonna watch because pirates and discovering lands, etc is not really my cuppa, but if it's yours, go at it.

      The Ex List
      Oct 3, 9PM
      Staring- Elizabeth Reaser(Ava/Rebecca on Grey's), Rachel Boston, Alexandra Breckenridge, Amir Talai
      I hear this is really funny and great. Bella (Reaser) hears from her psychic that the man she will marry is someone she has already dated, so she has to go back through them. It also shows her best friend and sister's lives, so it's all girly feel-good.
      -I'm watching even though I didn't love Ava/Rebecca on Grey's. I think the whole face thing creeped me out. PLUS, I'm an Alex/Izzie fan.

      Oct 3, 9PM
      Staring- Amanda Tapping, Christopher Heyerdahl
      About a refuge for supernatural beings, or something, I guess.
      -I'm so not into Sci-Fi.

      The Starter Wife
      Oct 10, 10PM
      Staring- Debra Messing(Will & Grace, a personal FAV), Judy Davis, Chris Diamantopoulos
      Debra Messing reprises the role of Molly Kagan who is newly divorced from a showbiz bigwig. The role began last summer in a miniseries of the same name, when Molly's husband asked for a divorce and Molly and their young daughter moved out. Now, Molly is starting up a writing career and trying to balance her social life and familiar obligations in Hollywood.
      -I'm definitely watching, for Debra.

      True Blood
      Sept 7, 9PM
      Staring- Anna Paquin , Stephen Moyer, Rutina Wesley, Alexander Skarsgard
      This one has already premiered this past Sunday night. It is set in Louisiana and it's about vampires. It's gotten some buzz because vampires are big right now with a lot of different groups of people and this show is a mix of things. It's a romantic comedy that is a little goth and a little murder mystery. That is a big 'ole gumbo of genres. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is a telepathic waitress who dates a 150 year-old vampire (Stephen Moyer).

      Easy Money
      Oct 5, 9PM
      Staring- Laurie Metcalf (Aunt Jackie on Roseanne), Judge Reinhold
      This show was hard to pin down. I'm not sure about it, if it's truly going to show or not. I found a few different premiere dates and some sites don't have it at all. It looks to be about a family of loan sharks- a drama.
      -Eh, ?

      Newbies (Monday-Thursday)

      There are quite a few new shows premiering this Fall. This is the lineup by days of the week. *I cannot sleep. I'm nervous so this is good for my nerves. I'm catching up on my tv watching.**

      Worst Week
      CBS 9:30PM (September 22)
      Comedy about a guy with bad luck. It's supposed to be really funny.
      Staring- Kyle Bornheimer, Kurtwood Smith(Red That 70s Show), Erinn Hayes, & Nancy Lenehan(most recently Kay Hickey on My Name is Earl)

      My Own Worst Enemy
      NBC 10PM (October 11)
      Drama- stay-at-home dad who by night is an international super spy but doesn't know that because the government has messed with his brains somehow. He leads a total double life.
      Staring- Christian Slater (yes, on TV!), Alfre Woodard, Madchen Amick, Saffron Burrows, Mike O'Malley
      A little tidbit about this show, it has not been seen by the press. Or anyone.

      Raising The Bar
      TNT 10PM (September 1)
      Drama- I've heard actually that it's Grey's Anatomy in court instead of in a hospital, just lawyers and judges instead of doctors and nurses. It's created by Steven Bochco (LA Law, Doogie Howser, M.D., Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) and stars some tv favorites.
      Staring- Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack from Saved By the Bell with dark, longish hair), Gloria Reuban, Jane Kackzmarek, J. August Richards (from Angel)

      -I will try all of these probably. That means that I will watch one episode. I don't know if I will like Enemy.

      CW, 8PM (September 2)
      Drama- I was a huge fan of the original. I will be watching the premier because I have to for the teen in me. I still am unsure if there is supposed to be a "Brandon" and a "Donna" replacement, ya know? I know that there is (or was) a brother and sister that move to Beverly Hills with their parents. I guess we will see. No one has seen this yet either. They have re-written the pilot a few times.
      Staring-Shanae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, Dustin Milligan, Lori Laughlin (Aunt Becky!), Rob Estes

      FOX, 8PM (September 9)
      I'm not sure I get it really but it's created by J.J. Abrams (Lost, MI 3, Alias) so that is not surprising. I don't know if that means I'll watch or not. Probably not because there is so much on in it's place. I bet a few of you will like it though
      Staring-Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo

      CW, 9PM (September 9)
      It's a little bit Nanny, little bit Gossip Girl, little bit Full House. It's a tween drama about a girl who becomes a tutor for two Palm Beach heiresses. I guess it's a little bit The Simple Life, too.
      Staring-Joanna Garcia (Cheyenne Reba with dark hair), Anne Archer, Lucy Hale, Ashley Newbrough, Allan Louis

      The Mentalist
      CBS, 9PM (September 23)
      Procedural drama about a police detective who is so highly aware and observant of human behavior, he seems psychic.
      Staring- Simon Baker, Robin Tunney, Amanda Righetti, Owain Yeoman, Tim Kang
      I like procedural dramas but this sounds a little like Psych. I might watch the first episode.

      Knight Rider
      NBC, 8PM (September 24)
      It's an extension of the 80s tv series. The car has changed from a Trans Am to a Mustang though. I have no intentions of watching.
      Staring-Justin Bruening, Sydney Poitier, Bruce Davison, Deanna Russo

      Gary Unmarried
      CBS, 8:30PM (September 24)
      A comedy about a recently divorced dad beginning to date again.
      Staring- Jay Mohr, Jaime King, Paula Marshall
      I will not be watching. I have not heard great things and I don't like Jay Mohr. I'm doubting this will be around for long.

      Do Not Disturb
      FOX, 9:30PM (September 10)
      A comedy about the inner workings of a boutique hotel called, The Inn.
      Staring-Jerry O'Connell, Niecy Nash, Jesse Tyler Ferguson
      Passing on this one too. I'm also guessing that this will be short-lived.

      CW, 9PM (October 22)
      Reality game show-type where people compete for a top job at ELLE.
      Staring-Anne Slowey, Elle's fashion news director
      Here is a great article on the show. It's up against Private Practice but I'll probably watch it just for the reasons stated at the end of that little piece. It seems juicy enough. I could give it a chance.

      Sons of Anarchy
      FX, 10PM (September 3)
      Drama about a motorcycle club that tries to protect their town. It's dark and dirty and looks good to me.
      Staring-Charlie Hunnam, Katy Sagal, Ron Perlman, Maggie Siff, Mitch Pileggi, Drea de Matteo
      I'm going to watch

      Kath & Kim
      NBC, 9:30PM (October 9)
      It's an adaptation of an Australian comedy about a mother-daughter duo. No one has seen it but the president of NBC says that it is the funniest show of the season.
      Staring- Molly Shannon, Selma Blair, John Michael Higgins, Mikey Day
      I love Molly Shannon so I will watch.

      Life On Mars
      ABC, 10PM (October 9)
      It's a mixture and a bit of a mystery. It was a 2006 tv show in the UK and then now, it's a show here. It's gone through some re-vamping though and no one has seen the completed version. The premise is that a man has an accident and wakes up in 1973. He doesn't know if he's in a coma or if he's crazy or what.
      Staring- Jason O'Mara, Michael Imperioli, Harvey Keitel, Gretchen Mol
      I will watch and see

      Eleventh Hour
      CBS, 10PM (October 9)
      Science fact drama brought to us by Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI,Without a Trace, Cold Case, The Amazing Race) about a biophysicist on call for the FBI helping them solve complex mysteries. No one has seen it.
      Staring- Rufus Sewell, Marley Shelton , Marc Blucas, Michael O'Keefe
      I'm giving it a shot

      Friday-Sunday to come...
