More Reality Show Nightmares

Doing my usual review of television viewing and I've found another new show on Animal Planet I won't be watching. It's called Bedbug Apocalypse. How's that for dramatic? The explanation says, "In 2010, bedbugs plaque the United States."

However I will be watching Celebrity Ghost Stories. Reduce the sense of meaning for "celebrity." This is a show were mostly unknown celebs talk about their ghost encounters. Occasionally there will be a well-known person like Regis Philbin or Joan Rivers, but tonight the celebs are Brett Butler (remember her? she was that southern female comedian who then had her own sitcom and then self-destructed over substance abuse); Cassandra Peterson (no idea who she is); Phil Varone (that 80s singer?); and Ana Gasteyer (no idea who she is).

I had to check: Cassandra is the name of the woman who dresses up as Elvira, Mistress of Darkness. Phil Varone is that musician; and Ana Gateyer was on Saturday Night Live. Right now, an old episode is on and Harry Hamlin (remember him from LA Law?) is relating his ghost adventure in a Victorian hotel.

I have a confession to make,

I watched...."Love In The Wild"....I bet no one has heard of this one.

You're right -- I haven't heard of it, but it's one time you're happy to be "anonymous"!
