Things I Learned from Daytime TV
I was home sick yesterday -- too sick even to watch TV most of the day, which is saying something. But I learned a couple of things.
1. Don't ever get plastic surgery. I saw a couple of minutes of Meg Ryan on Oprah. Egad. She has definitely had something done to her upper lip, but maybe a face lift too? Whatever it was, it looks bad.
That's the thing about plastic surgery. Sure, I believe all that stuff about growing old gracefully and not being vain. But mostly, I am very wary of it because it looks obviously fake and bad. I mean, if Meg Ryan and Jessica Lange, who have access to the best information and the best doctors can come out looking that way, what are the odds for a normal person? Not good.
2. Two new reality shows: Spying on Myself on A&E. This seems to involve people dressing up in disguises and talking to people that they know about what they think of them. Now that I write this, that sounds pretty horrible, but the previews looked like it might be good.
8th & Ocean on MTV. This looks like a Laguna Beach-style fake reality show. But it's about aspiring models in Miami.
