I know that for us all to agree on which television starlets should be featured in my blog would be insane…so I’m just going to talk about my favorites…and hopefully convert you. 🙂
Project Runway All-Stars
First up, the fashion-inspiring, mind-blowing Lifetime series that gives past design contestants a second chance. From stealing clothes off of people in Central Park to creating outfits for Miss Piggy, these people have got it going on! I don’t care if you think this is a “girly” show; if you’re not impressed with the creatively impressive results cranked out in mere hours, you’re crazy. And my go-to girl: April, whose similar-to-me attitude makes me want to throw on my leather jacket and black ankle boots.
Real Housewives of Orange County
One of my favorite shows of all time finally started up its seventh season, and the blonde drama is bigger and better than ever! Yes, I know many are annoyed with watching the lifestyles of all these rich ladies, but through divorces, losing their best friends, and dealing with disrespectful kids, they turn out to kind of be just like us. Gretchen, for instance, may love pink and sparkly things, but her determination and strength led her to owning her own biz.
Parks and Recreation
I feel if you like The Office, you’ll have to love this. The crazy story line – involving a ragtag group of city-employed people – holds attention and brings about laughter. Plus, pretty-boy Rob Lowe’s health nut character and Amy Poehler’s go-getter attitude can be somewhat inspiring!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Yay for more real drama! This city’s version of the Bravo hit wrapped up a season this month, complete with name-calling and accusations. Through all the crap, though, ladies like Lisa Vanderpump stay classy, with extraordinary gowns and raunchy comebacks.
With most of these high school singers graduating soon, this music-driven show will lose its lust and fan-base. Until then, though, I’ll continue to dream as big as Rachel Berry, push past trails like Quinn Fabray, and use an attitude to get results like Santana Lopez.
United States of Tara
I highly highly highly suggest watching the three seasons of this Showtime wonder. Follow the life a down-to-earth Tara (and her hot hubby, whiny sister, gay son, and dramatic daughter), as she struggles with D.I.D…which means you also get to see her alter-egos: Alice – a ’60s housewife, Buck – a biker dude, Shoshana – a hippy therapist, Chicken – Tara’s five-year-old self, T – a slutty teen, Gimme, an animal-like creature, and Bryce Craine, who turns out to be…well, you just have to watch it and learn from the bittersweet chaos yourself!
