New reality show helps annoying person!

Posted in blog post on July 31st, 2009 by Merrill Markoe

I dont watch that much reality TV. Although I am hooked on Intervention . And I did go to a friends house to watch the season closer of The Bachelor.But for the most part, the stuff slithers past me . Until today. Because I just read a review of a new show in the L.A. Times that provides the first really concrete reason to stand behind reality shows as a genre.Below is the article that caught my eye. The premise of the show is another behind the scenes glimpse of a pair of young newlyweds. Bla bla bla. Soon they will be taking out mutual restraining orders.

HOWEVER the bride half of the couple explains that by watching herself on camera she now realizes how annoying she is! That is almost unheard of among the annoying . And she certainly does look annoying. I am glad she is not a relative of mine. But even more amazing, she wants to apologize to her family! Everything about this gives me hope in a whole new way! . Because lets face it; how often does an annoying person of her caliber come to understand the truth about themselves and offer sympathy to others! I am kind of relieved that  she is not saying she is going to change since that would be one of the seven signs of the apocalypse. Rather, she simply seems to understand that being annoying is what she does and who she is. At least she feels bad for the people who have to come in contact with her.  And since it appears to be written that everyone everywhere is going to be on a reality show at some point, if even a small percentage of the truly annoying people could have this kind of a revelation, what a brighter happier world this would be. Fixing the American population of annoying people one reality show at a time. Now if there was just a central place that we could all contact to make sure that a lot more annoying people will get to star in their own shows. Oh wait. I guess thats E!

TCA Press Tour: ‘Giuliana & Bill’ not afraid of the newlywed reality show curse


The drama of Giuliani & Bill will also be, well, pretty mundane. The couple said episodes will focus on the everyday stresses and strains on the recently married: moving into a house, starting a family and, in their case, commuting cross-country.

In contrast, she said being on the show has improved their relationship.

Giuliana said she also realized how annoying she could be on camera.

Im like the most annoying person! she said. If I didnt have the show, Id have never known. Now I apologize to my family for being annoying.

“Giuliana & Bill” premieres Aug. 5.

    I have sympathy for people who have annoying people in their life, but understand that as annoying people, we don’t really have it much better than the people we annoy. Pity most those of us who are annoying and know it. We can’t go hide in the bathroom to get a break from ourselves.

    I’ve tried to be non-annoying, but it never lasts long. I try to make up for it to my friends and family by never replacing the word “like” for “said”, never telling people about the weirdest dream I had last night and never quoting song lyrics conversationally, no matter how relevant they may seem.

    I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do.
