View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Bad Haiku Friday: Reality (?) shows

so-called "real housewives"
provide a good argument
for easy divorce

Bethenny chose to
entertain us with her lack
of shame and good taste

the next top model
wannabees reinforce those
old stereotypes

reality shows
help to distort perceptions
of what's really real

I don't know who Bethany is, but you've convinced me. :) Great haiku (wasn't it supposed to be BAD?)

Actually, MissJean, I misspelled her name in the post. It should be Bethenny.

She's on a show where she's "engaged" (i.e. shacking up with her boyfriend and trying to make it sound nice) and finds out she's pregnant, so she plans her wedding and the birth of the baby at the same time. All on national TV.
