I'm sure many of you have heard of the show My Boys on TBS. Over the long weekend, I had a chance to catch most of the episodes in the current season.

My Boys, which is in it's fourth season, takes place in Chicago. The show is really centered around relationships (including friendships), mainly those of the main character, PJ who is considered one of the guys. PJ is really the core of her circle of friends as she is the main reason they all met and are friends. Think of the humor and sitcom feel of Friends mixed with all the relationship issues and mishaps of Sex and the City.

Man with present standing between two women

On Sunday night, I caught the first episode of the new season of Tough Love. We've already established that I am a big fan of the show; in fact I actually want to be on it. Anyway, this season is actually tough love for couples.

While watching the show, I kept thinking to myself - are you kidding me?

Let me start off by saying that I am not a big fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette. Honestly, the idea seems completely ludicrous to me. I mean come on. You group the "beautiful" people together at some insanely gorgeous location then send them on dates with helicopters, waterfalls and exotic (read that as expensive) foods. Then, in the end, you choose the person you want to marry, probably propose, and then venture out into the real world to make it work.

I want to be on Tough Love

I know, I know. Another trashy television show. Really though, this one is extremely entertaining (aside from the trashy stuff). And honestly, I kind of think people can actually learn a couple of things about dating from it.

If you don't know the idea behind the show. Steve Ward, a professional matchmaker, takes relationship challenged women and makes them into A+ daters. There's the woman that's obsessed with getting married, the gold digger and the woman with the body issues just to name a few. Steve pairs them up with dates and gives them the do's and don't of dating along the way. Of course he throws a few curve balls at them here and there, it is television after all.

Now, I must say that I don't really perceive myself as "relationship challenged." Though I mean I am almost 30 and still single so a little advice doesn't ever hurt right? Honestly, I really just want to hear what Steve has to say about me and my dating style. And, he seems to be pretty good at fixing these women up with some pretty great guys. Great dates definitely never hurt either.

I like Steve, I even think maybe we could be friends. Plus he's one matchmaker guy that I actually agree with most of the time. Of course I am also a little curious about how many times he would make me cry and how many times I would end up in the hot seat. For those of you that don't watch the show, the "hot seat" is for the woman who has done the worst for that day's events.

So who will nominate me? And Steve, if you are reading please pick me for the next season of Tough Love.

In case you didn't know, I kind of have a thing for trashy television. Mainly that in the trashy reality television show category. Last night, I caught the premiere of Frank the Entertainer in A Basement Affair on VH1. Obviously the show did not disappoint me. I do have one question though. Why in the world are these women competing for a man who lives in his parent's basement?

I was doing some channel surfing when I caught a couple minutes of The New Adventures of Old Christine. One of the characters, Richard, had apparently started dating a girl who he felt was a little crazy and he decided to end it. Moments later, the couple was sitting at dinner when he started with the whole "we need to talk" speech.
