How Much Is That Doggie In The Window (Television Thoughts: Marrying Millions, S01 E01, Lifetime)

mamillSometimes you just want to watch something on television thats really trashy where you want to just react and roll your eyes and judge people, and that is exactly what I did with the first episode of ‘Marrying Millions’ on Lifetime. It’s just one of those instances where I couldn’t decide what to watch – I start and stop shows feeling aimless. Well, when I chanced upon this show, it stuck at me enough for me not to touch the remote, so… I endured. And boy, what a heap of crap this is – we follow a bunch of couples wherein one of them is extremely wealthy, and the other not. Yes, a ‘Prince And The Pauper’ type of situation. And as much as I do believe in the powers of love, I am also bitter and cynical and can spot a gold digger when I see one. There is Jim and Brianna, and he is 60, and she is 21. I mean, surely, that’s pure love right? (eye roll) And there’s the footballer’s ex-wife who is dating her daughter’s friend. That’s all well and good, but for each to pretend that it’s not just physical… Don’t get me wrong, if I had all the money in the world, i would procure myself the most expensive boy toy so I am not one top judge, My one question is – if these people were so rich, why would they join a reality show? I am hooked.
