Reality Confessions

Okay,okay, after her rant of yesterday, Fio admits she watches some reality shows herself, notable the dwarf shows, the one about the Roloffs in Oregon and the one about the newlywed couple in Houston.

But what she enjoys about them is their normalcy. Sure the Roloff boys are hard to get up in the morning, sure Matt is an egomaniac, sure Amy's house is a mess--but Fio's sons were hard to rouse also, and Fio herself is something of an egomaniac, and she'll take Amy's messy house in preference to Kate Gosselin's squeaky clean house any day. Now, sometimes the newlywed dwarves' overabundance of cash is irritating, but Fio enjoys watching how they (especially 3'2" Jen) cope with living in a world too tall for them.

On the other hand, Fio has also been following Toddlers and Tiaras, about which nothing is normal.
