My SO is obsessed with all the Real Housewives shows and the Kardashian’s. I hate those shows and it bothers me that he likes them so much. I think part of it is we are older….he’s 42 and I’m 36.
I just don’t understand why he would have any interest in shows like that….Am I making a big deal of nothing?

Everyone has guilty pleasures. Just let him enjoy them when you’re not around

Mr.ND watches the Kardashians but refuses to admit it. I think they find it hilarous, and it’s like a soap opera but not as shameful to admit. LOL. He always says he was ‘waiting for me to come watch it with him’ when I come over and he’s got it on. Same with Jersey Shore. Cheap, hilarious entertainment. I wouldn’t worry.

LOL!! Oh he loved the Hills too! And the Real World and Jersey Shoreand pretty much any other reality show.
I used to like Real World 10 years ago, but now that we are older I just feel like we are in a different stage in our lives to watch this stuff

Fiance and I sometimes indulge in our guilty pleasure shows together and other times we don’t. He has some that I don’t and vice versa. Since it is just television, I don’t think it’s a big deal or even telling of a person’s personality or desires. I like trashy TV sometimes because it requires little to no thought. It’s just crazy people living their lives on a stage – with lots of money to throw around. Something about it is fascinating. (That being said, I can’t stand the Kardashians.)
Basically? Yeah I wouldn’t make a big deal out of it. If the tables were turned and you liked that type of show, don’t you think you might find it silly that he had an issue with it?

My DS and I love reality shows. I do watch the Real Housewives of ___________ and the Kardashians. He’ll sit with me and watch or if he’s flipping channels and I’m in the other room he’ll say “Hey babe one of the Housewives shows you like is on”. It could be he also likes to watch them or maybe it’s to support me and the shows I watch just like when I watch football with him.
I will admit our guilty pleasure is watching these types of shows. Although he has no shame and admits to friends and family we watch them. He’ll say “You know, I’m a 51 year old man and I like to watch Jersey Shore, Teen Mom 2 and 16 and Pregnant”. I think that we have got tired of watching sit coms and enjoy TV that’s real life or as much as a produced reality show can get. Unless you’re watching “Cops”.

Why does it bother you? There’s nothing wrong with having guilty pleasure TV shows.

Darling Husband knows all the Tabetha Salon Takeovers by heart, LOL. I find it more hysterical than anything. He is always watching cooking competitions and UFC fighting shows, I hate them, but he loves them. It is just something that we enjoy apart, I watch my SciFi shows and he has his shows.

I wouldn’t worry about it at all. Those shows are trainwrecks (and I LOVE my RHOBH) that are fun to watch.
The best part about the Kardashian shows is watching Bruce Jenner wander thru the room every once in a while. (before he heads off to SYTTD Atlanta, where’s he known as Monte)

@GroovyHippieChick: Yes! Or when he’s just hanging out in the 400-square foot bathroom when people come in and start fighting.
I also love watching the big doofus husband of Kim. I’m kind of annoyed they’re getting divorced.

My Darling Husband used to like the housewives shows but he got tired of them. He’ll watch other girly shows with me too. I also have a 54 year old uncle who watches all the Real Housewives shows and talks about how crazy they are.
Most TV is just mindless whether it’s geared towards men or women so I don’t think it matters what people watch.

@turtle62212: I like both of those shows. It is my splurge of mindlessness for a few hours out of the day.
