Did anyone watch Celebrity Apprentice this season? The Gorilla and I tuned in for most of the episodes because the cast was so great. I have to say that of all the reality shows I've watched over the years, the best, most competent contestants never make it to the final two. They always get knocked out along the way. But I have to say on Celebrity Apprentice this season, it was truly the best two people at the end. Should I credit Trump for this?
More reality chatter: I couldn't stand Real Housewives of New Jersey last season, but I can't look away this one. It's the new sister-in-law cast member, I think. Holy Drama!
On a much, much more somber note, the tornado footage from the storms that ravaged Missouri and my home state of Oklahoma has been just devastating. My heart hurts for the many families who have been affected. It seems that in the past few months, the world has given us that many more reminders to hug those we love tighter.
