Unhappy The Simple Life...simply stupid!

Well, I wasted an hour tonight -- I tuned in the new reality show "A Simple Life." I was hoping for more glimpses of the trailer but, sigh, the Airstream is not the star in this show. The trailer got maybe 2 minutes of show time in the whole of the one hour episodes (less 20 minutes of commercials). Not worth the time from my perspective. The rest of the show was spent showcasing the idiot escapades of the two bim's.

Oh, they're sort of adorable & good natured. A little goes a long way, no doubt, but I would have been tickled to have had them at Moraine View ...

The 13 year old son of the park manager will have a lifetime of memories.

All I heard was a great sucking sound. It was the half hour of my life I will never get back. Man I gave up half way through the second half hour episode. Lucky for me the kids wanted to watch Pokemon during the first half hour, saved some of my life.

Ummm...which part was that? Was that when they were babysitting and the parents gave them some instructions to follow like no swearing in front of their daughter...and then Nicole tried (unsuccessfully, thank goodness), to coax the little girl to repeat a swear word or to rhyme a bad word.

I kind of enjoyed the mermaid sequence. And I think the park manager was a saint.

That's the dumbest program I ever saw.

If that Airstream isn't already trash, it surely will be by the time they're finished with it.

I couldn't believe anybody would put a metal cooking pot in the microwave and leave it in there until the handle melted. Warranty? What warranty?

only redeeming quality imo....

i wonder how many "staff members" it took to set the trailer up each time?

those two are certainly uncapable of doing it themselves...would be fun to see either or both of them rolled up in the zip dee!

maybe paris could use her head for a wheel chock.
