Big Teeth And Dancing Just Don't Mix

My mother has a love/hate relationship with reality TV, but she is getting the hang of watching it as she is now hooked on Dancing With The Stars.

This week, as she was watching, she had me on the other end of the phone, telling me how annoyed she is that Marie Osmond was still safe.

“Why, don’t you like her?

“I’ve never liked her; or the Osmond Family, for that matter.”

“Really?” I said, as she continued heaping verbal praise on those she does like (Helio and Juilliane) and wishing broken ankles on those she doesn’t (
Marie Osmond and Jane Seymour).

“God no. I’ve always hated the Osmonds. They just have too many teeth.”

“Too many teeth??”

“Yeah, like beavers. They have huge, bucky beaver teeth.”

I wonder what she'd have to say if she saw those plastic surgery pictures?

I think I would enjoy watching DWTS with your mom. I'm also pulling for Helio and would be happy to see Marie and Jane go. It's not necessarily because of Marie's teeth - it's more because I'm sick to death of hearing her brother on ET whining about how tough Marie's life is and how that should be the reason she wins it all. And I just want Helio to win.

Okay, maybe I'm just a little too into reality TV.

Lol too funny! I just stumbled across your blog last week and love it!

I've spent all day reading your archives. Man, what a cool job you have. I'm stuck in an office all day :(
