Ok, just a warning, this is going to be a Really? REALLY? post!

So one of my many guilty pleasures is watching really bad reality shows. Like, Real Housewives of OC, and New York, American Idol ( though probably not with ellen and simon gone) but the recent one is Bethenny Getting Married. For those who don't watch this little gem, it's a spin off of one of the ladies from RH of New York. She got Knocked up, Then engaged, then married, now has a baby.

Anyway, the muse of this post. She has a baby nurse. She talks about how HARD having a baby is. I just can't get over it. She doesn't do anything. If the baby is crying, she hands her to the nurse. If she has a dirty diaper, here ya go nurse-y. She is breastfeeding which I think is fantastic. But the nurse will come in to burp the baby. REALLY??? I mean burping is the easy thing. She goes on and on about how hard having a baby is, but I just want scream when I hear it. She isn't do anything. I realize that she is saying it's hard even though she isn't doing anything, not going around talking about how easy it is. Which is saving her alot. But REALLY?

Ok rant over.

I can just picture you saying this out loud!!!! I totally agree with you and I don't know the first thing about taking care of a baby! I still love the show. I was too busy watching Jersey Shore last night so today I'm going to watch RHofDC and Project Runway! My fav is Rachel Zoe! Please tell me you watch it... :)

I can't stop watching it either!! And I just keep thinking yes your life is soo hard that you can run out whenever you want to do whatever because someone is always there to watch her!! And the burping seriously...I love when she says "oh Gina she is getting fussy" & she runs in there and takes the baby from her!!! Really??

Court- No I don't watch Rachel Zoe, but I can certainly start;)

Christine: I KNOW RIGHT? I'm so glad someone with a baby watches this. haha burping is the easy part, and she passes her off. I thought it was funny they couldn't get the carseat out of the car. I remember the first time i went to look at strollers, I collapsed one, and couldn't figure out how to get it back up, so I just left it laying there.. opps!
