I Catchphrased the Catchphrase!

22 Aug

I’ve never tried to hide the fact that I love awful television. Especially awful television about wedding dresses. I’ve spent many a Friday evening texting a running commentary on Say Yes to the Dress with Molly. “Does this princess really think those fake tears will get the dress down $3000?!” Then they came out with the spinoffsSay Yes to the Dress Atlanta, now with 60% more sass! All for it. Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids Edition? Loved it.Can’t get enough of that eyerolling. My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding (and it’s American cousin) are beautiful train wrecks of sparkles and toothless uncles.

Randy to the Rescue is a relatively new addition and might be the Best Thing Ever. Randy, the world’s most wonderful bridal consultant, hits the road to bring Klienfeld’s to middle America. Awesome. I even embraced his new slogan and cheerfully recited it with the television as women were made over from Head to Hem. I just want him to be my friend.

But TLC, I was just starting to forgive you for 7 years of programming based on impractically large families. Then you did it again. You crossed the line. The wedding dress shows have gone too far. And I really can’t handle another catchphrase. Especially one that doesn’t really rhyme. I Found the Gown. Commence groans. While I applaud the effort to show brides on a budget, TLC might consider clearing out their closet before introducing any new inventory. And for the love of Zeus, please no more catchphrases.

    Plus, if i’m gonna watch a show about people shopping i want them to be ugly and disgustingly rich, buying heinously tacky $50k sheer middrift-ed panini tornAY or whatever dresses. I watch TLC to judge, not empathize with the sweet bride on a budget getting a good deal. That just makes me jealous. #truthbombs
