I used to hate reality TV. As a writer, I vowed to not stray from scripted television. I totally identify with writers that slave over their craft, that are so connected to their work that it drives them batty at times.
But then one day—I caved. Hard core. I needed to turn my brain off. I didn’t want to invest my emotions or brain into a scripted show. I just wanted mindless entertainment. And that’s exactly what you get with reality TV. Mind you, I still watch plenty of scripted TV. But nothing makes me feel better about myself than watching idiots act like idiots on “reality” TV.
I enjoy watching Vanderpump Rules on Bravo. A bunch of friends that work at Sur Restaurant owned by the ultra-fab Lisa Vanderpump. These people are all young and beautiful and, sadly, wealthier than you and I. But I digress. This blog post is about cast members Tom & Katie. They’re married in real life. Now.
See. The two got married on the show in 2016. Very pricey, very TV wedding. The two got married for a second time in Vegas. This piqued my curiosity. I can see a vow renewal at five years, but at the three year mark?
Then the truth came out—these two twits were never legally married in 2016. They failed to properly fill out their paperwork. Seriously? The paperwork ain’t hard. But conveniently, their second REAL marriage was filmed for the upcoming season of the show. Whew!
Please. Don’t have children. I’m pretty sure your kid legally won’t have a name because of all that “difficult” paperwork.
