While it wasn’t my favorite movie of all time, I was excited to see the preview and learn that you’ll be broadcasting Burlesque on New Year’s Day!
Though we do need to talk. And it’s serious.
When the preview came on, the voiceover stated that it was the network television premiere event with, and I quote: “Christina Aguilera, Julianne Hough, and Kristen Bell.”
UMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. No mention of CHER?!!!!
I don’t even have to say anything else. You know this is blasphemous.
You know I’m angry.
But dangit, you know I’ll still be watching.

My DVR has been exhausted for several months now with all the summer programming. Or lack thereof. So the fact that season premieres are kicking off is exhilarating.
But not for the reasons you might think.
Yes, I will now have hours and hours of TV shows to start watching that I’ll never be able to keep up with, but what I’m even more excited about is that my style icon is back.
Yes, Ellen’s tenth season has officially kicked off.
My sister was the first to notice that Ellen and I dressed very similarly—or at least was the first person to bring it to my attention when she told me “nice Ellen shoes.”
Once I got to paying attention myself, I realized my sister was completely wrong. I don’t dress like Ellen. Ellen dresses like me.
And I love it.
Though I would be lying if I said that one of her outfits didn’t sneak into the inspiration to what I wore the next day. On several occasions.
But really, I’m not even kind of upset about it. Ellen is an awesome role model, has impeccable style, and from what I can tell from just watching her, and overly kind heart. And since she puts a smile on my face whenever I watch, if she decides to borrow from my lookbook from time to time, I’ll just let that be my return gift to her.

For some reason, I’ve picked up a few habits over the years that mirror those of an 80-year-old man. Once such habit – watching the nightly local news.
I’ve got my favorite station and even my favor anchor. Seriously, would love to grab lunch with her sometime.
But tonight, I think they could have buried their lead slightly more than they did.
To quote, while going into a commercial break: “See where the bookstore burglar struck, and it’s caught on tape.”
Well. I guess I did wait through the break to see if there was some kind of irony. But nope, the bookstore burglar struck exactly where you’d think.
That’s OK. I’ll still keep watching.
But I’d start being a bit more sneaky with those teasers.

I love me some RHONJ. Not as much as I did when Danielle Staub was still allowed to be on the show, but it’s still DVR worthy.
And seeing that my fall shows will be starting up again soon, I figured I needed to catch up on some of my summer recordings to make space.
So if you’re watching, you’ve for sure already seen this “beauty.”
If not, this is what you missed. I call it “Teresa’s Triple What?!” moment.
I’m not sure what confuses me more. That look? Or the person that said to her, “Oh look at you. You go gurl, you got this.”
Andy Cohen, it best not have been you.

I’ve had a busy past several weeks and sadly had fallen pretty far behind on my DVR. Which meant I was about 16 episodes behind on The View.
And when I finally got around to catching up I quite was taken aback by a particular episode. It contained one Mr. Donald Trump.
I’m not going to lament on the fact that he told the ladies he didn’t “care for” Cher and never has. Though that definitely did not earn him any points with me.
But it also doesn’t make me want to hold back in asking Mr. Trump what the heck is going on with his face?!
Seriously, crushed up Cheetos cannot pass as foundation. Though good for you for protecting your eyes with goggles when you put it on.
That was probably a solid choice, Chester.

Having concerns about postmenopausal osteoporosis? Losing your ability to control your bladder and don’t know where to turn? How about that pesky denture problem ruining your life and any chance of ever eating an apple again?
If you’re facing any of these dilemmas, I may be a good person to turn to.
“What? Why? Get away from me,” you’re probably thinking right about now.
But no, really. I probably wouldn’t be all that bad of a resource for you. Because apparently my TV thinks I’m a seventy-eight-year-old lady.
I feel like when I’m not fast forwarding through commercials I’m constantly hearing Blythe Danner talk about how hearing “break a leg” before she goes on stage is no longer funny. Or how some couple in retirement “has their life back again” now that their teeth are secured.
I think my point to this (the sub-point being that I’m not looking forward to getting on in years) is that I need to start watching programming that’s more appropriate for my demo. Like The Voice. Or Smash. Or just about anything that doesn’t run on the Lifetime or Oxygen network.
But then again, if seeing age-appropriate commercials means giving up my Golden Girls, then I’m sorry. I will continue to sigh to myself and think, “Oh, Blythe,” whenever she flashes on my screen.
It’s worth it.
