Woo hoo! TGIF! Time for a Virtual Girls' Night Out! Things have been hairy the last few weeks, so I've been a little M.I.A., but I fully plan to get my blog hopping on tonight!
Those of you who read my blog faithfully surely are aware of my addiction to reality programming. You name it, I've probably watched it at least once. And while some reality TV fails to impress me, a good bit of it is darn entertaining.
I especially love reality programming that's talent-related, like "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance." Ann, our lovely host of the original Virtual Girls' Night Out, reminded me of a reality show that's now defunct that was one of my absolute favorites - "Rock Star: Supernova."
The whole "Rock Star" thing started with "Rock Star: INXS," where a bunch of rock star wannabes auditioned to become the new Michael Hutchence (who was pretty darn irreplaceable, if you ask me). Then the next year, they had "Rock Star: Supernova," casting a lead singer for a brand new band called Supernova, made up of numerous band castoffs, including Dave Navarro, one of the guys from Guns n Roses, Tommy Lee, and one of the guys from Metallica. On "Rock Star: Supernova" there were two people who truly captivated me, that I rooted for wholeheartedly (neither of whom won, of course): Storm Large and Ryan Star.
After seeing the last few seasons of "American Idol" wind up with a few decent rockers, I've been mildly surprised not to see the whole "Rock Star" franchise not come back, but who knows, time will tell. It was definitely a good show, while it lasted, even if the bands it created or completed didn't exactly succeed.
And lucky Miss Ann actually went to see Storm Large live in concert!! I'm so jealous. She was celebrating her anniversary, and she's curious this week if you've met the love of your life, and if so, how did you meet?
While the story of how I met and fell in love with my husband is kind of complicated, the short answer as to how we met is that we went to the same college, and on the first day of my first spring semester of school, I was taking a class called Writing for Electronic Communication, and he was in my class.
So this week, I have two questions - what is your favorite reality TV program, current or retired? And have you been lucky enough to meet the love of your life, and if so, how did you meet? Can't wait to read your answers!!
