OK, let me start by saying that I absolutely loathe Tia and Tamera Mowry — those crazy-annoying twins from that crazy-annoying TV show Sister, Sister — so, I was kinda surprised when Tia said something even remotely interesting (and relevant to my current gig as a SAHD) on The Nate Berkus Show today. Yes, I watch Nate Berkus sometimes. Mostly to fill the gaping hole in my life since Oprah left the basic cable airwaves. So sad…
Anyway, Mr. Berkus was interviewing Tia and he asked her if motherhood was what she expected it to be. You know, total softball, standard daytime-TV question. But her response was surprisingly honest, especially coming from a fake-ass robot like her. Sorry, even if I totally agree with her…I still kinda hate her. Anyway, this is how Tia Mowry answered Nate’s question:
“I’m gonna be honest, I’m gonna be real. The lows are a lot lower than I expected, I mean, I am so exhausted, I am always on auto-pilot. But the highs are a lot higher than I expected [too]. I have so much love for my son, he is my motivation.”
Wow, nicely put, Sister, um, Sister. I feel your lows and your highs!
Oh, man…the empty space on our Tivo just keeps getting bigger. Earlier this year, we dropped the wildly-erratic “Glee” from our Season Pass, “Oprah” went the way of “Martha” — actually, not really, we just don’t get the Hallmark Channel, so, no more “Martha” for us — and now comes the news today that “Desperate Housewives” will end it’s epic, eight year run this coming May.
As a long-time viewer, I gotta say, this is probably a good thing. I mean, last season wasn’t the worst they’ve ever had — I think that was the flash-forward-five-years season with the “fat” Gabrielle, so stupid!! — but it had some really crazy shit going on, and quickly fell to the bottom of our “watch right away” list. In fact, we still have nine unwatched episodes saved on the Tivo as I type.
So, while I am sad to see the show go — in their glory days, it was hard to find better writing, acting and directing anywhere on TV, I mean it, “Housewives” rocked! — I think it’s cool that they know they’re ending in May. That should give them plenty of time to wrap the show up nicely…ahem, or not. Either way, we’ll be watching the action on Wisteria Lane till the bitter end!
