My newest guilty pleasure is Bridezilla. This show follows a bad-tempered bride around in the weeks before her wedding. The groom is usually around peripherally but, he is seldom around when his future wife is losing her shit.

Here's my advice to the future husband of a bridezilla. Ask to see the video that is shot each day. No, change that. Demand to see the video that is shot each day. If you still marry her, you deserve every hellacious moment of your new marriage.

Watching the bride and everyone around her go nuclear is endlessly entertaining. It's especially easy to enjoy the freak-outs because, as the show goes along, we are informed of the obscene amounts of money being spent on the wedding extravaganza. These people are out of their ever loving minds.

The one I watched tonight spent $70,000 on her wedding. She had to take a second mortgage out on her house. Each episode follows two brides with one wedding shown to completion and the other carried over to the next episode. Clever devils. The bride next week is 40% over budget with a predicted grand total of $110,000. I can't wait to see that bitch lose her shit.

I mean, bless her heart.

I've seen (parts of) the show. It made me wonder why anyone would want to get married. Bet they have really bad headaches on their wedding nights, too, after all those months of stressful preparation.

On the other hand, with those amounts of money at stake and only one chance to get it "right," no wonder they go bonkers.

I had never heard of Bridezilla but now that I have, i have to hope it doesn't come on after 9 p.m., when I turn on my TV---otherwise i can see a serious addiction coming on. I am so glad I imposed that time frame thing on myself, although I have been down to watch from 9 pm until 9 am of the next day. BTW, I'm putting that picture on my daughter's fridge---just n case she's getting wedding ideas above (or below, I'M not sure) her station.
