I hate to admitt this, but I am addicted to 2 afternoon soaps. All My Children and General Hospital, I have been watching them since I was a teen. I catch them usually late nights on Soapnet. Makes my life look so happy and simple. Plus alot of guys taking off shirts! :blush:

Woo hoo, Joe! :googly:

I made an amazing discovery about soap operas. When I get ready in the morning, I watch/listen to the Today show on NBC. I always leave the TV on...I hate to come home to a quiet house...I know I'm weird, shut up. Anyhoo, when I go home for lunch, the soaps are on. I don't watch them, but I halfway listen to them while I'm doing other things. I realized one day that just listening to soap operas is like listening to porn. They are always crying and sobbing and heaving and breathing hard. Not that crying and sobbing should be associated with sex, but the way it's done sounds more like they are doing the deed than crying and sobbing. It's like a full out orgy. They are subliminally getting to the viewers by associating the show with sex. Those sneaky jokers. :blush:

Peaches will you be doing the guilty pleasure of watching Jack Black host the Kid's choice Awards on Nick on April !?? I think that will just be wild and cool with Jack hosting!

But of course, my sweet Jane. Jack isn't a guilty pleasure...I'm not ashamed of my love for him at all. :grin:

I have found a pathetic new TV guilty pleasure. I usually turn on the kid's channel "Noggin" in the morning so my daughter and I can sing while she's getting ready for daycare. Noggin turns into the teenage version of Nickelodeon at night, which is called "The N". I'll watch it occasionally, because they seem to show ridiculous amounts of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", which I love. Well, I had it on "The N" one night and a show called "Degrassi" came on. I am old, so I remember the first incarnation of that back in the 80s called "Degrassi Junior High". It was a Canadian kid's soap opera. Anyway, I've started watching the new version and I am ashamed to admit that I'm into it. The season premiere was on last week and Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) made a cameo. I felt a little vindicated because I love all things Kevin Smith.

Am I a loser or what? Please don't answer that.

I used the word "pathetic" twice, so I changed one of them to "loser". No one likes redundancy.

- Three's Company :cool:

- Ditto on the old Degrassi series from way back. I saw a couple of the recent ones, but couldn't get into them.

- The Office. Not the crappy American show, but the one they based it from. First season's ace, the second is cringe-inducing, but funny as well. I haven't seen the Christmas special, but am looking forward to that :beatnik: I've yet to see such humour over on this side of the pond with the exception of Daria (ha! Now that was a great show!).

DWTS is my guilty pleasure.

And Priscilla Presley cannot smile. It's the weirdest thing. Unlike some people who've had way too much surgery, this woman looks as if her face is so full of botox there's no room for her to smile. When she accidentally smirks a little, she covers her face with her hand.

It must be horrific to realize you've had one face lift or injection too many.

OK, you've found me out, I confess that I watch "Dirty Jobs"! I can't think of a dirtier, sleazier show on TV, that shows the depths and stink that the Discovery channel revels in. Unless...you think that urban legends need to be investigated. Yes, there will be a congressional investigation into the questionable antics of Hyneman & Savage who profess to be "Mythbusters." Imagine wasting valuable TV time on "Can you make a cannon out of a tree?" That and the mad quartet of "Smash Lab" need to be stopped before some impressionable youths out there is persuaded to take up Science, Physics, and Engineering instead of becoming a Rapper or gang banger! :jester:

I agree with you on DWTS and Priscilla Presley, Shawna. I thought she looked strange and wondered why she didn't smile. I didn't know she had botox, I figured she was just stand-offish.

I don't know that she has had botox. It just looks like her smile muscles won't move, like they're numb or something. Very weird.

TMZ has learned Priscilla Presley is the victim of a botched cosmetic procedure. What's worse -- it was at the hands of a gigolo who was sent to prison for perpetrating an injectable scam on Hollywood's elite.

Priscilla, whose face looks ... strange on "Dancing with the Stars," went to Dr. Daniel Serrano around 2003. Serrano was a good-looking doc from Argentina who hooked into Hollywood's social A-list and started giving them what he claimed were miracle injections that worked better than Botox.

In fact, Serrano was injecting industrial, low-grade silicone similar to what's used to lubricate auto parts in Argentina into the faces of these women. Several women, including Shawn King, Larry's wife, and Diane Richie, Lionel's wife at the time, held injection parties in their homes, with Serrano needling them with the non-FDA approved drug that he had smuggled in to the U.S. He charged between $300 and $500 a pop.

But wait, it gets worse. Serrano wasn't even a licensed doc in the U.S. The injections caused lumps, paralysis and holes in the faces of some of the women (and some men) he injected.

Serrano, who was nicknamed Dr. Jiffy Lube, was indicted by the Feds for smuggling drugs, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs. He was convicted, and last week he was released and is currently being investigated by federal immigration officials and could be deported.

BTW, Diane Richie was also indicted as an accomplice. She pled out and was placed on probation.

As for Priscilla -- who had no idea she was being injected with silicone -- we're told she's undergoing corrective work.

I thought she looked strange...
