It's hard to believe there's only two episodes left of this series. I keep meaning to tell you to watch it and I keep not getting around to it. Fortunately, they seem to run about six or seven episodes A DAY so you can be aught up in about three or four days if you time it right (and check the bravotv.com schedule often).

Bobby is my newest personal hero because Whitney is CRAZY but he takes everything in stride and manages to look like he's having a pretty good time, even when he's pissed off about how things are going. (I will note that this may just be the editors working extra hard to make Whitney look like a loon and Bobby like a saint.)

Most importantly, Whitney is introducing me to all sorts of phrases I can use in everyday conversation, such as "hell to the no" and "I'm gonna drop on the one."

In short, this show kicks the well-toned ass of "Hogan Knows Best" so you owe it to yourself to at least catch the inevitable replays they will schedule to air immediately after the new season of "Celebrity Poker Showdown" kicks off.

Apparently, the next Bravo reality series will follow around Howie Mandel. I just can't see it being NEARLY as much fun. We'll see.

(Is anybody watching "The D List?" Should we?)

Vehement agreement, Zed. After a slow start and the initial shock of Whitney being SO psycho, you really can see how incredibly well marketed Whitney has been for the past few decades and you can also see how Bobby *does* seem to be mostly a fun-loving, if not troubled, guy.

If you pair this with VH1's Behind the Music: New Edition--you really get a better picture of how Bobby was just a tad too rough around the edges for the bubble gum image NE tried to craft all those years ago (you also find out little things like they voted him out of the group contrary to reports that he quit and that they all regret it).

I caught "The D List" last night. I'll give it another go before I cast judgement. I do find the premise of her being a "working celebrity" who is an otuside-insider rather intriguing. We'll see.

I think I OWE myself a beatdown for watching this. I'm sure there are other hilarious bits in the show but when the first clip I see of that show is Whitney squeezing a zit on Bobby's face.... Thanks, I think I'll pass.

It isn't ALL black-on-blackhead violence.

While I haven't gotten around to actually watching an episode of the show, Whitney's proclamation of "I'M GOIN' CAMPIN'!" from the promo a few weeks back had me laughing myself sick.

Only episode I've caught was the one where they're in London. Was pretty entertaining.
