Table For One, Please

I’ve blogged about this before, but this Bridezillas show on Slice (formerly Life) network is quite the thing to watch. It’s like a train wreck, you can’t look away. These women losing complete focus on the whole point of getting married while they obsess about the smallest details and make everyone around them miserable too. And let’s not forget the money being thrown around. Holy triple mortgage, Batman. This one couple on the show spent $120,000!!!!

It’s like an hour long commercial for never getting married, I tell you. I realize that it’s probably edited to show the worst of these women (I mean, what kind of ratings is a show called “Calm and Collected Bride To Be” going to get?), but edited or not, these women are acting like this and saying these things at some point. Gotta wonder about the saneness of these guys too – run, men, run! Under these battle conditions, you’re getting to see the real person you’re about to marry, and in these cases, it’s not pretty. Why would anyone go through with it?

I wonder why anyone would allow cameras in and a show to portray them is such a fashion. Of course, then the cynic in me points out they must be getting paid for the effort and probably overacting too. Still, what if they’re not? Oh, the horror…Oh, the humanity!

"It’s like a train wreck, you can’t look away" That's soooo true! I catch it on occasion and I find it difficult to turn the channel!

And yes, what are these guys thinking going ahead with the weddings even when they see the women like this. Word of warning: if she's like this over the wedding, just imagine when she's under the stress of paying the bills, paying the mortgage, cleaning, feeding the kid(s) and work. We can enjoy it for the show but you have to put up with it for the rest of your life (or how ever long you're together)!

Exactly. What are they thinking? They're seeing the real person under stress, and it's not good. Wake up and smell the coffee - the future is not very bright.

It does make for some interesting TV though :)
