Crazy for Cupcakes

DC Cupcakes

I wasn't sure of the name of this program and "reality TV" and cupcakes came up with more than one show. Now these two woman have a real business unlike "Cupcake Wars" that was created as a Reality Show. Sad to say Cupcake Wars is just a product of a producer trying to fill the TV hours with competitive nonsense.

DC Cupcakes is about two women and some help running a real business without all the false hype of competition. My problem with the whole concept is this is not about making good cupcakes, it's about displays of hundreds of them glued into some display that supposedly makes a statement. I guess just making a good cupcake would not be much of a show but displays of hundreds of them kinda lacks meaning in my opinion.

Dual Survival My Ass

Gee ... look what somebody left us

Why in the hell would someone be dropped off in a God Awful location with little or nothing in the way of survival tools unless you were making a stupid survival movie. Then to add nonsense to insanity they find a bunch of gear that just happened left by unknown others. What they find is a gun with one round, a hatchet, a tarp, duct tape and who knows what else. Then they come across a tin lean-too shelter with stove full of hot embers for a fire starter. I mean how lucky could two guys be unless they are doing a survival reality show. This is about as silly as another character in this series, Cody with braids, Indian clothes and always barefoot. At least the scenery is nice and these guys aren't competing with each other.

Making fun of Red Carpet Hollywood

A show based on making fun of Hollywood fashion
Fashion Police

Well good for these two for quitting but why did they take the stupid job in the first place. I've only briefly noticed this show as I fly past the E! entertainment channel toward another. Yep the same channel that the extremely shallow Kardashians are on. I know nothing about the Hollywood Red Carpet except that there is a lot of extremely poor fashion taste .... but make a show based on that ??

There are Reality Show exceptions to programs that focus on people being nasty to each other but not enough. Shipping Wars, Storage Wars, Real Housewives, The Royals, Survivor and others are rude and nasty as much as they are interesting. How about growing up Television Producers and the people that watch them. Just bring in Jerry Springer and he'll fix it for you..

Storage Wars: Texas

Bimbo Mary Padian

Watching the Texas version of Storage Wars you might think everyone from Texas is obnoxious .... all the way from this cute little Bimbo to the extremely over weight loudmouth men with their fake Texas drawl. What gets me about Mary besides always acting goofy is her pricing of things as she pulls them out of the locker. She's the only one that way over estimates the value of stuff ... I mean WAY over.

What the whole program needs is what they actually get for stuff when it's sold. These people are supposedly store owners and we never get to see the stores let alone how they are run and realistic pricing.

Exception # 1 :: Any show with Gordon Ramsay

Not only is this guy a great Chef but also a great judge of people
He also has no problem telling folks what he thinks of them
They asked him to help with their restaurant so he does not spare the rod

Gordon going off on someone

No shortage of the "F-word" but also no shortage of good advice and generosity. Many of the places he visits get a complete physical makeover of the restaurant (free of charge?).  He always seems to pull them out of the hole and shows us some great meals.

Chef Gordon Ramsay hits the road in search of restaurants in crisis, where he steps in and addresses some of the most stressful aspects of running a successful food business. Ramsay and his team redecorate each eatery to give it a fresh new look in hopes of attracting a larger crowd. Ramsay's ultimate goal is to make the restaurants he visits profitable for their struggling owners.

Master Chef and the F-Word are also great along with many of his YouTube cooking videos

I just wanted an outlet when I get that gag reflex going on some of these absolutely terrible reality shows. So here they come as I gag.

I actually like a few so may mention them from time to time
