I binged Paradise Hotel this weekend. Kind of fun to watch for the summer when there is limited good television. Miz, I completely agree that Nicole was a nasty piece of work.

Anyone watch Songland last night? I thought the music was awesome and there wasn't a loser song shown in the group - I didn't agree with the song John Legend chose (I would have gone for the more Motown-vibed song) but gosh there are some truly talented people out there!

Interesting item- MTV's Are You The One? next season will have 16 "sexually fluid" contestants, and the matches could be any type (male/female, male/male, or female/female)

Watched two of A&E's Biography shows. One was about Jeff Foxworthy and one was about Jeff Dunham. I really like both comedians. I actually saw Jeff Dunham do a show at a local comedy club in my hometown many many years ago, way before anyone knew who he was. He was brilliant even back then.

Roxip, I watched Songland and I also think the songs were great. The songwriter he choice was my least favorite and felt the Motown-vibed song was the best.

I wondered how it would work and was pleasantly surprised at the mentoring. Personally, I like the German guys song after Ryan Tedder put his spin on it. I hope that the others careers move forward.

Roxip, I watched the end of Songland. The song they chose, when I heard it, the refrain sounded way too familiar. It sounds like Michael Buble's Crazy Love. Listen at around :33. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKZBDeamZPU

I preferred the Motown one too.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but since Octomom's life was practically a reality show for many years, I'll post it here.

The Octuplets turned 10 last week! To my surprise, they really are a very gorgeous looking bunch of children. There's one daughter in particular that looks like she could grow up to be a super model.

Is anybody else watching Texicanos? I love this show, although they bicker more than any of the housewives. Most of them grew up in wealthy families in Mexico before coming to the US. I keep thinking about how Lorena said she never had an alarm clock when she was growing up. Her chauffeur (!) would tap on her window every morning and say, "Lorena, it's time to get up." Wow! I find myself talking in a Mexican accent in my head after watching this show (I hope that's not racist--I'm very susceptible to accents. I thought everything in a British accent when I was watching Lucifer).

Octomom's kids are tied to my life.. How?

10 years and four days ago I went inpatient with cancer and had surgery. The next morning, I was in the hospital room and the subject of Octomom came up, as in why did her doctor use so many embryos and the costs of the hospital stay at taxpayer expense and my nurse said her sister was a nurse at the hospital where those kids were born and most of the staff there was very upset about the situation.

So yes, they are 10.. Just think when there are 10 teens!!

And I have hit the 10 year Mark for that cancer.

I've been watching 'Bring the Funny' on Monday nights with Keenan Thompson, Jeff Foxworthy and Chrissy Teigen. I really like it. Some acts they love, but I don't understand why. There are others that are really great. I tend to smile a lot while watching, so will keep checking it out.

They are doing face offs now. For the most part, I think the judges have made good decisions. I love watching Kenan though. When he likes someone, he reminds me of someone in a candy story who was told he could have all he wants. His face just lights up with joy.

I've also been watching Bring the Funny. Love Jeff Foxworthy. I mostly enjoy the stand-up comics.

Caught a bit tonight and last week of a show called Hypnotize Me. It has been hilarious. Reminds me of a time many many years ago when comedy clubs were in their heyday. My late husband and I used to go see quite a few shows. He got hypnotized once, along with several others. It was hilarious. One of the suggestions was that when they heard the hypnotist say "ladies and gentlemen" they would think it was the foulest language they had ever heard. My husband at the time, got mad, and say "hey now! you can't talk like that in front of my wife!" Later I told him what happened. I said what did he say? He couldn't tell me.

We also saw the ventriloquist Jeff Dunham very early on, early 80's. It was great!

Has anyone watched "It's a Man's World" on Bravo?

Each week a different woman who experiences discrimination transforms into a man and goes into the same situation to see how they are treated differently as a man.

They've only shown the first episode so far and it's very interesting. It was about a female professional pool player. She has the conundrum of having to be sexy to get the sponsorships to have enough money to play, but that leaves her open to sexual harassment.

It was fun to watch the makeup artists and coaches, too.

I saw mention of a British show called The Circle on Joker's yesterday. I haven't been feeling great and thought I would check it out. I got hooked. Here is some info from Wikipedia...

The show's contestants, or "players", all move into a refurbished block of flats in Salford (previously London). However, the contestants will never meet face-to-face during the course of the competition, as they will each live in their own individual flat. They will communicate solely using their profiles on a specially-designed app, giving them the ability to portray themselves in any way they choose.

The two highest rated players become "influencers", while the remaining players will be at risk of being "blocked" by the influencers. Blocked players are eliminated from the game, but are given the opportunity to briefly meet one player still in the game.


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Circle_(British_TV_series)

It can be annoying at times that they are only talking to each other "online" and using hashtags and emojis, but it has been a bit fun to watch. A U.S. version will be coming to Netflix soon (casting closed last month). Here is a You Tube link for all of the current season two episodes...

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWH1zOPc-Ul1QFlxTNjHW4Q/videos?disable_polymer=1&app=desktop

I think it only goes for another week or two. Give it a whirl if you need some escapism.

Is anybody watching "Taken at Birth" on TLC? It is a very interesting show about a group of individuals who were sold by a doctor at birth - over 200 that they know of. It is so sad because there are no records and these people are searching for their biological families and have very little to go on.

Roxi, yes, it’s fascinating and sad and maddening (how the doctor got away with so much) how he convinced people (his granddaughter for instance, that instead of having “illegal abortions” they would have “illegal adoptions “ so no one would ever know (as they’d never know if they’d been aborted). However, they are ignoring that mothers were told babies were stillborn, they weren’t there for abortions nor adoptions! The think the lady, Jane (?) was on her journey to find out, she has been searching over 20 years! She discovered how tiny these babies were some 4#s! When she said you’ve described puppies as tiny...but babies? To be told not to hold the baby the whole way back to Michigan, to put the baby on a pillow? How did these babies survive?!

And the granddaughter exhuming her dads body? Because no one in the Hicks family would give dna, wth are the still hiding!

Then google and you find MORE of these horrific babie stealing 😪

It is an incredibly sad show for the surviving babies (and how many of these babies died after birth - it could be a shocking number - and who would believe that that many people would travel there to get an abortion back in that day when travel wasn't that easy!). I had some trouble with my satellite last night (but so happy to have rain that I'm not complaining) and wondered if they ever resolved who left the search warrant inside of the (supposedly previously unopened) crypt?

I didn’t think they could “wrap it up”. It shouldn’t have been a disappointing show, but it so was... clearly it was reality as Sallies storyline was so emotional for her, what a journey she went on! She said she hoped others would have answers, the show led us to believe Dr Hicks fathered “many”, how each told how they suspected they were fathered by him, blue eyes, blonde or red hair, the side by side picture of Sallie and her dad...

And the bomb shell of exhuming the body, at least 20 minutes, then the collecting dna.... then notifying Sallie... yes, drawn out for drama, but taking a commercial return from break to repeat 2-3 minutes, as if you hadn’t just watched it!

The great reveal? Not so great. It was revealed on day 1! The first interview with Sallie she mentioned a name (bleeped then as the person didn’t want to participate- good for them btw ) Sallie said xxx believed the housekeeper had a baby fathered by dr Hicks...and the dna revealed... that was the truth...

But I understand a story this big cannot “wrap it up” but, tlc in the way they “sold” the show, I was not a fan!

I agree that it didn't need to be three long nights. I thought the show was rather compelling but I would have preferred they showed us more of the hunt for other birth families in lieu of all the time spent with Sallie. I sure thought she was going to be related to Dr. Hicks though because her resemblance to her adopted father was uncanny.
