I spent some time on Saturday afternoon with @KyleRichards18 at an appearance that I booked for her.  She was kind, professional, talkative, and accommodating.  I will certainly work with her again, most likely in June.  I stopped watching The Real Housewives franchise (all locations) a couple of years ago, but I could easily get sucked in after spending this limited time with Kyle.  

I caught the premiere episode of Preachers' Daughters on Lifetime.  I will admit that my interest was piqued and I'm signed up for episode two.  Presuming you've never heard of this gem, here's how Lifetime describes it: 

Teaching kids right from wrong may take a village…except when it takes a congregation! Lifetime will premiere its provocative new family docuseries "Preachers’ Daughters," following the lives of three families for a behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon concludes . . . "Preachers’ Daughters" reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors’ daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents’ strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith. What happens will change these families forever, and surprise viewers with this unvarnished peek into their lives and the universal issues all households with teenagers face daily.

Another show I caught up on this weekend, which you should be watching is Burning Love on E!  Season 1 of the series, which was a web-only show last year, is now airing on TV and is worth watching.  It's a spoof on The Bachelor with Ken Marino as the star and Michael Ian Black taking on the Chris Harrison role as Bill Tundle, and such folks as Kristen Bell, Natasha Leggero (who doesn't wear pants or underwear on the show), Jennifer Aniston, Abigail Spencer (Suits), Ben Stiller, Adam Scott, Paul Scheer, and a myriad of others.  

Season 2 is available on-line and is a spoof on The Bachelorette, with June Diane Raphael playing the title role and fighting off the likes of Jerry O'Connell, Adam Brody, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll, Adam Scott, et al.  If you didn't figure it out already, the show features or has cameos by many actors who were part of the cast of the television comedy Party Down including Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Kristen Bell, Ken Jeong, Ryan Hansen, June Diane Raphael, Martin Starr and Kerri Kenney-Silver.

Speaking of the Bachelor, I'm sad (well maybe that's strong) to announce that ABC has decided to scrap Bachelor Pad.  Bummer for those Bachelor and Bachelorette cast offs looking to extend their 15 minutes of fame.  Speaking of which, Michael Stagliano's music career seems to be booming!  And in case you forgot, Tony and Blakeley called off their short-lived engagement in October.

I caught up on American Idol over the weekend and I think I'm finally taking it off my DVR Series Manager.  The contestants are lame and boring and as it was pointed out last week in a comment on this site, they should just call it a day and hand the title to Angie Miller.  If ANYONE other than her wins, it's a black mark on the show and the beginning of the end.
