I admit it - reality tv is one of guilty pleasures.
One of my favorites has always been the Bachelor/Bachelorette.
Jillian Harris is the current Bachelorette working to find her prince charming on Monday nights in front of millions of viewers. I liked Jillian from the start (and was my favorite gal from the Jason season of the Bachelor). Beyond being beautiful, she seemed to be intelligent, a quality often missing from reality show participants.
Jillian had a VERY handsome group of men to choose from - with some duds and wackos thrown in for good measure. At times she frustrated me. Perhaps at age 42 with 18 years of marriage under my belt she could have called me and I could have offered up some perspective! Of course, she never did.
I would have told her to keep the nice guys, dump the ones with foot fetishes, country music careers and aspiring break dancers. I would have told her to put less value on which men told her their "feelings" - good men often have a hard time with that while the ones that tell you are often not sincere.
But thank you Jillian - for Monday evenings when I put the kids to bed, pour myself a glass of wine and watch you fumble along trying to find that "perfect" prince charming.
Anyone else watching Jillian??? Who will she choose?? I don't particularly have a favorite but would love to hear from others who are watching...
Oh, and by the way - the kick-ass sis in law.....she won the Hardrock 100 (for the women), came in 3rd overall and set a new women's course record - 27 hours and 18 minutes.. I am in awe.
Enjoy your day!
