We are going to have rain all week here. Hopefully there will be some patches of sun. The weather seems to mess with my crappy phone and cause me to lose cable but I think I’ve figured out how to fix it. I am amazingly good at fixing things if it means not having to go buy a new one.
I am starting two new summer shows tonight. I doubt I will recap either one unless there is some sort of overwhelming interest. Plus being Monday night shows, There will be plenty of Bravo conflicts over the season. Both are on Lifetime.
First is Devious Maids. This is a deliciously campy soap about a group of Hispanic maids in a wealthy neighborhood who know all the dirt on everyone. Last season one of the maids son was falsely accused of murder. She was actually an undercover maid trying to solve the mystery and save her son. This season there is another murder to solve. The show makes fun of itself by having this season’s murder at the same residence as last season. The matriarch is seen telling the cops something like, “Oh my, we haven’t had a murder at our house in ages!” This show is the kind of silly novel you buy to read on the beach where no one you know can see you. It’s fun but silly and the mystery part is fairly well written. The cast includes producer Eva Longoria, Susan Lucci and this season’s new edition, Naya Rivera. It’s the third season and now I wonder if I missed one.
The other show is called UnReal . From the website, “UnREAL is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg, a young producer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with, and among, the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the program’s dispassionate executive producer, Quinn King, demands. What ensues is an eye-opening look at what happens in the outrageous world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and being a producer a whole other reality.” This is a brand new show about a woman who produces a dating competition show and all the weird behind the scenes stuff. I live for this sort of thing.
Just what I need two trashy summer shows to watch without you guys. 🙂 Oh both shows are on Lifetime. Devious Maids comes on at 9 conflicting with lots of things including the finale of Shahs and UnReal comes on at ten which also conflicts with some things, so I will be delayed in my viewings. Oh Southern Charm reunion. So I’ll recap Bravo and watch the other two later. Oh and Devious Maids is filmed in Atlanta!
Finally, I’m going to need a yankee who is still speaking to me who has grown a Rutgers tomato to come the gardening page.
So how is your Monday going? This is your post for all “off topic” comments. Talk about whatever you can talk here while still following the commenting rules about links or trying to tell people how to use Google. 🙂
