Tales of a Misguided Mommy


I love a lot of TV shows.  Admittedly a lot of them are food ones.  Top Chef, Next Food Network Star, Hells Kitchen, Challenge, etc.


I love other shows too.  Scrubs, Friends, Big Brother, Biggest Loser, Oprah, Law and Order SVU, CSI (all), Without a Trace, Cold Case etc.

Here is the thing.  Some of these shows I can watch again and again and again and never get tired of them.  The ones that I can watch reruns of endlessly are:

Top Chef

Law and Order (any)



And then.  I have two dirty little secrets.  Dirty dirty little secrets.  Two secrets that make even my husband cringe.  They are:

The Golden Girls

The Nanny


HELLO!!  Are you all still here?  Did you run away yet? Yes.  It's true


Yes.  I'm hanging my own head in shame.  It started when I was little.  In fact, I was too little to even remember, and I can remember back to at least 4 years old.  I have proudly seen every single episode of the Golden Girls (and the Nanny). It never gets old.  I love the humor.  I love how slutty blanche is.  My dream is to be like Sophia when I'm old and grey.  I wish I had a Rose in my life.  I have secretly dubbed all of my friends as a Golden Girl in my future.  (Katie is Rose, Ginger is Dorothy (shes such a smart ass), and Blanche is of course my pseudo Internet friend Val.  A few nights ago I trudged upstairs to get in bed and relax and was tickled pink when I saw not one but TWO episodes of the Golden Girls would be on.  My husband was NOT thrilled when he had to lay in bed and unwind by watching Rose and Sophia sell sandwiches to make money. 

I discovered the Nanny while at an ex boyfriends house.  I was helping his little sister de-muck her room and she was watching it.  I thought it was retarded.  Later, I saw it on TV and was making fun of the show.  2 Hours into a Nanny marathon I found myself embarrassingly ADDICTED.  I have now seen every show (at least 5 times) and I sadly think I formed a tiny crush on Maxwell. 

So.  Those are my two dirty little secrets.  Do you have any?  Are then any shows you are kind of ashamed to admit you love?

Love, Misguided Mommy

When I was in college, I would get home mid-day - just in time to watch the Golden Girls. Everybody likes the Golden Girls. EVERYBODY. But The Nanny? Ummmm...no Now for my confession - I used to be obsessed with figure skating. I would watch it on TV all the time. LAME. And I was also addicted to Lifetime original movies for a while. John teased me endlessly, so I stopped watching them.

Hi, my name is Kat and I love watching the Nanny. Over and over and over again. I know what you mean. Also something I can't seem to never tire of is Friends. I have seen each episode at least four times. I've seen it in English, I've seen it in French, I have watched the Show in German and I will be a repeat offender till they stop showing it on tv.

I feel like I barely know you. I mean I knew about the Golden Girls obsession, we all are a little obsessed with the Golden Girls. But you've never even hinted at The Nanny....but I suppose that's the fun of being an old married couple, there are still things we don't know about each other!

I love both the Golden Girls and the Nanny and if you want to see some back to back Golden Girls turn on the Hallmark channel I think its' 59 if you have charter...they are on at night from 11pm to 1am and in the morning from 9am to 11am and yes I watch them all!! I love the Nanny too...I love her being on Nick at Night although I used to watch it on lifetime all the time! Both classics :)
