Today, Heidi and Valerie weigh in on the same topic: watching The Bachelorette. The issue isn't with the show itself, it's with everyone who wants to judge you on whether you watch it or you don't. We've seen negativity come from all sides of this one, and we're tired of it!
If I hear or read one more person postulate on and on about their opinions of all the current antics on this season of The Bachelorette, only to then end it with "I can't believe I watch this show!" or "This show is so stupid, I don't know why I watch it" or even "I mean, I don't even care what happens"...I just might throw Chris Harrison's plate of roses on the ground and stomp on it.
Guess what, everyone? You watch this show because you like it. You do care what happens. You find enjoyment and entertainment from watching week after week.
AND THAT IS OKAY.
We all watch it for the very same reasons!
We love cheesy romance!
We love predicting who will stay and who will go week by week!
We love cringing when someone moves in for a kiss that is obviously not wanted!
We love drooling over all the gowns and sparkly shorts!
We LOVE Chris Harrison and his unpredictable tie/shirt combos!
We love believing in love (despite the obvious track record of couples from this show)!
Let's stop being embarrassed of things we like, and let's just like them, instead. Guilty pleasures are meant to be shared, and there is absolutely no reason why we should hide that we enjoy them. Turns out, sometimes we're just stereotypical women. WHO CARES. If you like it, own the fact you like it. I promise, you are nowhere near alone.
I'll be watching tonight. I'd love to talk about it with you later.
On the flip side of this same topic, what if you aren't ashamed of the fact that you watch it, but other people make it feel like you should be? Heidi's experienced this one.
