I was channel flipping recently

And stumbled across "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

What a freaking train wreck. Really. And yet, I kept watching it, even through the commercial breaks, trying to understand just what the hell was supposed to be the appeal of this bunch of nutcases. Have you seen it? Apparently one of the daughters was a Paris Hilton friend, had a sex tape released by an exboyfriend aaaaand... spends a lot of time and money on herself. That's all I could divine.

BUT... After about the third commercial break, a pattern dawned on me.

All the commercials were for:

Pregnancy Tests
Various versions of The Pill
some ridiculous thing called Re-phresh or something like that, which as near as I could tell, is sort of like Febreze for one's hoo-hah.

And so on and so on. Just when I thought the show's demographic was teenaged boys, the commercials suggest otherwise. The show was horrendous but at least I got a pretty good laugh.

No wonder I hate tv.

Oh I agree. My hubby asks me all the time who Kim Kardashian is and I can tell him 'Some girl? With a big butt? That had a sex tape?" I don't know any more than that. What has television come to?

I love reality shows but that one makes no sense to me at all. I really don't know who she is but I just read she organized Paris Hiltons closets. FANCY! Just what the world needs a hoo ha spray. Isn't technology great!

I have heard it was terrible. Ugh.

Though your commercial observations are hysterical.

I have seen it and I can't stop watching it either.

But really it's their eye make-up that I'm infatuated with.
