My New Guilty Pleasure


Yep, that's right my new guilty pleasure is Confessions Of A Teen Idol on VH1. It's a show created or at least spearheaded by Scott Baio. The 80's idols featured are Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon), David Chokachi (Baywatch), Billy Hufsey (Fame), Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch), Eric Nies (MTV’s The Real World and The Grind), Jamie Walters (Beverly Hills 90210), and Adrian Zmed (TJ Hooker, Grease 2). Even the producers are all guys who were famous as teenagers.

I can't say I was ever a fan of any one of them. I did think Christopher Adkins was dreamy back then and he still qualifies as eye candy. And I will say Adrian Zmed was my favorite in Grease 2 and then Eric Nies has got this whole hot Jesus thing going on. I'm sorry God, forgive me and bless the Pygmies in New Guinea.

Honestly they all are pretty attractive, but that's not why I'm watching (really). I'm intrigued by their stories. How they went from hot s@*t with fame and money to has beens by Hollywood standards to dealing with the loss of that lifestyle.

Besides I'm over Bret and his 3rd time looking for love with skanks and porn stars. And what the hell is Real Chance at Love? That one guy's hair bothers me. Black men should not have 2 feet of relaxed hair, period. I have caught a couple of episodes of Tool Academy, but since I was married to a tool I am not interested in watching tools for entertainment, well unless they are being flogged, lol!

Oh the strange shows you can watch on VH1. It's a smorgasbord of sin, trash, sex, hard-to-grasp oddities, crimes against fashion, and all the wrong things that are born from Flavor of Love.

I don't have no stations:0 That is ok... I get it all on the computer. How are you by the way?

I just watched it for the first time last week & was hooked by the time it was over. I remember thinking "I don't want to wait a whole damn week to see the next episode!", that's when you know you're hooked!

Kirsten said...

It replays during the week! I just caught the 2nd half of the 1st episode, now I'm complete ; )

I'm not even sure who any of them are, except for the guy in Blue Lagoon! I suppose Jason Bateman had better things to do...which is why I had a crush on him in the first place ;)
