Oh I do. I watch every bit of American trash going. This and Tool Academy have to be the scrapings though. I cant believe that Pam is real. Why would you want to come across as a total biatch in a scripted reality show?
Having said that I love Bonnie.

Hi Tally

Sorry, have been a bit poorly of late so this is the 1st time I've been back on in a few days ... thanks for replying to my call

Yeah, Pam is such an evil biatch and Bonnie seems nice but a bit of a flake! Couldn't believe how awful they were all being to Connie either and wondered if it was because she was the only non-blonde 'grown up'??

Love Leslie's tactics and they way she does everything in pagaent girl mode

However, for bottom of the barrel - look no further than Mob Wives!! Classic

Its so freaky, i started watching millionaire matchmaker and one of the ladies picked to date a millionaire was one of the women from big rich texas! So odd that id never heard of her before but saw her on two shows today.

I missed the opening show on sunday and it looks like it isnt repeated.its a shame they dont put this on after real housewives as there was no reason it needs to be on after the watershed.

I loved it as soon as i saw wednesdays show. Its great because its like real housewives but with mothers and daughters. It will be a great replacement for me while beverly hills isnt on!

Wow bonnie is actually really clever!

When she told her daughter she should study hard in her pre med classes so she could be like her mum i assumed she meant dress like a hooker and marry a rich doctor!

saw it yesterday, when the Pageant crazy mom was telling the girls to lose weight. One of the girls who hated it from the start dropped out, the pageant mom got mad. Grace won the her division and the blonde won a title. A botoxed mom was getting guys at a bar to look at her daughters boobs to see if she'd get her implants or not......all very classy.

I really don't think I can watch it again, but after 2 series, the Real HoWives look like Oscar contenders compared to this lot don't they?

I continue to be puzzled by Pam. Is she real? And if she is what on earth does she get from coming across as such a narcisisitic, revolting bitch as she's portrayed in this. Surely nobody can be as devoid of any good features as shown on Big Rich Texas?

Although I had seen this advertised, I had never watched it until the opening episode on itv2 last sunday night. I did enjoy it - liked Pam - but, as with all shows of this ilk, the participants are playing up to the cameras.
I did read an article where texan residents who belong to the woodhaven country club, didn't recognise it from it's on screen portrayal.
Poetic licence?

Must admit i watch this (that Whitneys hot ), Pam thinks she runs the place tbh, don't know what was wrong with the Zumba classes, as Yoga was on after it wasn't it, but she wasn't happy about it, saying it was like a nightclub, everyone dancing etc..., but Zumbas pretty big now isn't it, its fitness not nightclubbing, and there was plenty of people there doing it like the Yoga, so why not have an alternative to the Yoga, and i also couldn't see anything wrong with now being able to wear a different colour to white to play tennis.

The Lesley/Connie fight about the fashion show was just cool. Reality drama at it's best.

Does Connie remind anyone else of Kirs Jenner? The way she is with her daughter and how she wants to control everything and everyone.

At that Party, she was looking over all the time, then when Whitney straddled him, she stomed over and dragged him off home, its obvious shes after him

I don't know what was wrong there, she was running late, so Lesley got them doing some walking down the catwalk until she arrived, and she gets thrown out of the show for it, but then gets put back in when the show actually starts

Yeah, now you come to mention it, she did remind me of someone.

I officially love this show now! My fav is whitney and bonnie but i dont like pam and her daughter. Shes always sticking her nose in thinking she runs the flippin club thing. The owners a bit of a push over though. One request for zumba and he approves, one request for coloured tennis outfits amd he approves, he approves the party then cancels it when one person complains! He just says yes to everything by the looks of it.

Not too keen on leslie insisting that if some frizzy haired old lady tells you youre a plus size model then you obviously need to lose weight!

Just watched those 2 Wednesday episodes i missed.

I can not stand that ******* Pam!, getting the murder mystery party cancelled, and then at the new venue for it, after she got invited, she wouldn't wear the white paint or the victim shirt, she bailed!!!, not keen on Melissa either, she won't allow Maddie to do anything, have a boyfriend, nothing, and it was her that made her pull out of the pageant as well imo, as she kept going on at her all the time about it, i bet she'd have done it otherwise.

Love Bonnie and Whitney, find those 2 hilarious, was great when they were asking everyone in the club about wether she should have a boob job

Last nights was great, it all kicked off at the meal between Whitney and Kalyn, but i felt sorry for Kalyn in the end, saying she was staying with Leslie as she had a bad relationship with her mother, and when Leslie said she was going to send her back there, she said she didn't want to go, just wanted Leslie to treat her like a daughter.

Bonnie at the table: 'Whitney isn't trashy because she was raised by me.' Anyone else heard it? I laughed out loud.

Anyway, Kaylin (sp?) behaved like a brat as did Whitney. Pamela was ok, but Hannah's right she isn't very funny. The cheerleader thing was BOOOOOring.
