Mama in the City

A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Gym, Tan, Laundry

I have a confession to make and please don't get all judgey on me either. When little Ben is fast asleep and the evening is all mine I turn to a MTV show called Jersey Shore. Yes, you heard me right. Mama in the City is all over the craptastic hour long Jersey Shore.

Hosted by

The show is so ridiculous that you just can't stop watching it. It isn't that it is a good quality show or even that the characters are truly interesting and stimulating people. There is just a little something about the upbeat theme song and the extra orange tans and over gelled man hair that gets me hooked.

So, tell I alone in this confession? Yes, I know it is a vulgar rude show but I can't help myself.

Haha. I'll have to check it out. My confession is that I watch and obsess over The Hills.

I've never seen that one, but I'm a closet Real World fan. Quality content? not at all, brainless and pathetic? completely. Sold! you've got my attention for an hour.

I think it's because us working Mommies, Mommies of all kinds in fact need something so unreal to what we deal with to space out on.

Lesley, I think you would really dig this show. If we lived closer to each other I could see watching it together. Making fun of the hilarious outfits, the clubbing, the 'juiced' up men. It is too much of a hilarious show to pass up.

A little brainless television is a mum's retreat hey! You can half watch it and do something else at the same time. I totally hear you!

I haven't checked out this show yet...seems really awful but I can totally imagine myself watching it too. U keep hearing about "Mike the situation"....sounds like a real winner?!? I personally can't get enough of all the Housewives shows--great reality junk :)

For what it's worth I too am all over gym, tan, laundry and the crazyness that is the show. It is total trash and the people are hilarious and characters of themselves but I totally tune in. I am surprised that people will let themselves look like such crazy people on television. I guess anything for a buck hey.
