The swapping wives shows....any of the housewives from hell shows.

15. If you were given a free ticket to be on any reality show, which one would you choose? I would like to have my home Crashed by Bathroom Crashers or Yard Crashers. 


  1. I forgot all about The West Wing! And I used to love that show. CJ and Josh, especially. And yes, all during the Bush years I dreamed of an alternate reality where there really was a Bartlett Administration.

  2. I'd still vote for Jed Bartlett, given the chance. And I agree completely with Tony Soprano.

  3. HGTV does have a lot of good shows.

  4. I would choose Monk as my bodyguard. He wouldn't get me all boogerdy or make me drink tap water. :)

    The only TV doctor that I would choose is Quincy, but I'm on the wrong side of life for his line of work. He's thorough and would get to the bottom of what was wrong.

    The TV mama that I liked the best was Caroline Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie. The funniest one was Lucy from I Love Lucy.

    I always wanted to be Jamie Somers from The Bionic Woman and also Wonder Woman. As a little girl, I loved her outfit and her plane, but really loved her smile. My smile hasn't ever been really pretty.

    Have a great week!
