Now I Remember…

“Well Jerry, I’m here today to tell my husband that I’m sleeping with my sister.”

The husband has a hot and sexy mullet.

The sister just came out and she is a midget.

She’s married too, and she wants to stay with her husband. She can’t be with her sister any more.

And throughout all of this they are having a food fight.

Gee, now I remember why I never watch Jerry Springer. Could it possibly get any freakier then this?

another show that just sucks you in for about 5 minutes then when you change the channel, you realize that’s 5 minutes you’ll never get back! I feel the same way about the Osborn’s. It just pulls you in to watch!

It seems to me that Jerry Springer has always been like this, even back in the old “Talk Soup” days. The only people who watch him on a regular basis are those who deserve to be on his show. Everybody else is just along for the ride.

A friend of my husband’s taped a show for Jerry once. They had made up some bizarre story, and I’m sure there was fighting in it as well. Jerry ended before it ever aired, but they have the video. *rolling eyes* There was this one break room in an old job of mine that I couldn’t stand to spend time in because they watched trash tv all day long. Made me want to rip my hair out.

That reminds me of the brief time Michael and I lived in Malden, MA (for about 1.5 months). We lived in the bottom apartment of a two-family house. Leroy and Adriane lived upstairs. They were arguing late one night and woke me up. At one point Adriane accuses Leroy of sleeping with a woman he met at a bar. Leroy then comes back with a comment about how at least he’s not sleeping with a relative. And then Adrian says something along the lines of “At least I’m not sleeping with someone I just met!” Somewhere in the conversation one of them mentions that she’s been sleeping with her brother.

And then there’s the other time we heard a lot of noise upstairs and I told Michael it sounded like they were building a boat. Later on Leroy confirmed that yes, indeed, he was building a boat! We didn’t stay at the apartment long enough to see the boat (or pieces of it) come down the stairs.

Did you see the time of the post? It is on in Houston during the middle of the night – I was still awake, but he had been in bed for hours! (I left it and went to bed too, after watching the first 10 minutes of the freak fest.)

I was channel-surfing one day and landed on Jerry Springer…the theme of the show was “My Mother, My Lover”.

Yeah, it was a woman who was sleeping with her own mother. Both women were married, and they had the husbands come out and duke it out. These guys actually wanted their wives back!

Well, it’s not as if they could have done any better. Typical Springer guests, complete with mullets and many missing teeth.

All of that bleeping gave me a headache, so I turned it off. UGH!!!
