So I can honestly say that I don't like reality tv. With the exception of a few things. I have gotten quite obsessed with "The Deadliest Catch" and "Wife Swap". Tonights "Wife Swap" has a red neck Kentucky family with the submissive wife with 3 spoiled kids and a rude Mean husband, and a snob illinois think their smarter than thou who tell the new mom that she is less intelligent than most people. Who do these people think that they are??? I don't understand where these people get off acting like they are the "sch-nitz". Here is a description of the families from ABC.
Illinois is home to the Myers, a family of ghost hunters who all have paranormal abilities. She swaps lives with Samantha (39), a working mom whose corporate job supports the family financially and who leaves all domestic and parental responsibilities to her stay-at-home husband, Shane (37). In fact Drew (19), Cassie (16), Ricky (14) and Thom (4) call their father "dad-mom," and he assumes all domestic duties, beginning his day in his wife's closet, picking out and ironing her clothes every morning to her exact specifications. The Myers kids have grown to be extremely self-sufficient. They don't have structured rules, but each of the children does chores around the house and contributes to the family in some way. Drew and Cassie both work and have paid the monthly household bills whenever mom and dad found themselves low on cash. Drew, Cassie and Ricky also pitch in to the care of their younger brother, Thom, because Samantha admits she's not a "kissy kissy" kind of mom.
A family from the backwoods of Kentucky, the Suttons have a traditional household where Karen (42) is the ultimate mommy-mom who devotes her entire life to keeping her coal-miner husband, Tommy (46), pampered and her daughters, Tiffany (18), Kaitlyn (13) and Lindsey (10), indulged. Tommy considers cooking, cleaning and child care woman's work and, while he's off working, he expects Karen to be doing just that. From the moment she wakes up to the moment she goes to bed she's cleaning, dusting, doing laundry and cooking full country meals. Karen considers her girls her best friends and goes to great lengths to please them by showering them with affection and gifts. They've never been asked to lift a finger. Tiffany even calls her mom's cell phone from her upstairs bedroom to request a drink or to have Karen come find her lost TV remote control.
Oh well this could be a long and drawn out blog if I keep going on that. So anyhow last night we played Softball and Kicked Arse!!!! B got a home run and I got a double and scored a run.
