Fall is lurking just around the corner, and that means it’s the start of a new season for all 73 of my favorite TV shows.
Oh little TiVo I do hope you enjoyed your summer break because here in about a week, IT. IS. ON.
Here’s a sampling of what I’ll tune in to watch this season: American Idol, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, The Young And The Restless, The View, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, The Talk, and Dancing With The Stars.
For those of you who happen to be content watching reruns of Law & Order, party on! Around here, though? The fall line up is a BIG DEAL, especially after the lame summer line-up I’ve had to endure. I take my daily docket very seriously and I have said many times that the TiVo is the second greatest invention of my time (second only to my beloved iPhone). Me and my TiVo are tight. We spend lots of time together, and I’m thankful for her. (Yes, she is a her because we have enough boys around here already! Plus, she is crazy organized, so there!)
I was delighted when the new cast of Dancing With The Stars was revealed just a few days ago. I was excited to find out that Derek Hough would return this season. Last season just wasn’t the same without him. So yeah! Welcome back, Derek!
The new celebrity (and I use that word loosely) line-up includes David Arquette, Chaz Bono (celebrity? really?), Nancy Grace, NBA player Ron Artest, model Elisabetta Canalis, reality-TV stars Kristin Cavallari and Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, actor J.R. Martinez, Chynna Phillips, Hope Solo, and fashion commentator Carson Kressley (I’d rather poke my eyes out with a fork than listen to Kressley ramble on).
Though I have never heard of her before now, my money (if I had any) would be on Hope Solo, which should come as no big surprise because she is paired up with my boyfriend, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Can you say hot?
And hard to spell?
And on top of that, Maks’ brother Val will also be joining the cast this season.
DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE, DOUBLE YOUR FUN. LOOK OUT MCDADDY, YOU BETTER RUN!
Now, for those of you who couldn’t care less about dancing, olympic champions or hotties (GASP!) who really know how to cut-the-proverbial-rug let me just say this….
You are just plain missing out.
I have absolutely no grace whatsoever.
But, if they happened to host a Dancing With The Stay-At-Home-Moms Edition, I’d be all over it.
Especially if they paired me with my boy, Maks.
I would do my very best to make the stay-at-home moms of the world proud. I’d shake, rattle, roll and shimmy my way to the finals where I would work my tail off to dance with Maks as long as possible.
Or break my foot in the first 4.9 seconds.
Either way, I’d be a hit, don’t ya think?
Until my big break comes though, I’ll watch faithfully from my big, blue bloggy couch and daydream about the chance to take the dancing world by storm.
Maks, if by some weird twist of fate you’ve happened across my little blog, how ’bout you talk to the producers and see what you can do about changing the format for Season 14? And if by some miracle you can make that happen, I have three words for you.
I. AM. YOURGIRL.
Hope, if by chance you’ve stumbled across my blog, I am making a pre-season prediction that you and Maks will be the Season 13 Champions. You’ve got the sexiest, most talented DWTS partner and for that reason, you are sure to be a crowd favorite.
You get my votes.
All of em.
Without even campaigning.
Make me proud, girl!
My TiVo works for me.
