I’m gonna come clean.
I have a guilty little secret. Every year I say I’m not going to do it again and then the opportunity arises and I feel the bite and draw and I engage in this once again.
I watch Celebrity Apprentice. I know, I know.. it’s shameful, but I do it. And while I’m coming clean, I may as well admit that I watch America’s Next Top Model. Add to that Dexter and Dr. Who and that rounds out my television diet. Consider this, though. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.
Celebrity Apprentice has successfully convinced me that Joan Rivers is a lying conniving person and that Dionne Warwick is a pushy, mean woman. Maybe it’s the editing that the show employs, but whatever it is, it’s guaranteed that I do not like either of these icons and would not support them nor anything they would appear in. Given that this can be the possible outcome for celebrities after being on a show like this, why-oh-why, I have to ask, would you do that kind of thing?
Maybe it’s wrong of me, but I was happy that Dionne was fired tonight.
