I just finished watching one of my favorite shows, “Bridezillas” on the WE network. I have watched wedding-style reality shows for several years, all the while wondering what, exactly, my fascination is with them.

My own wedding was nothing like what you would see on tv: we got married at a courthouse all by ourselves. You would think that I like wedding shows because deep down I feel as if I missed out on something. Nope, I don’t think so. I don’t recall, as a little girl, having grandiose dreams of a big princess wedding. Although we got married young and have some regrets about not having our families there, I don’t regret anything else about the wedding.

Would I have been a Bridezilla? Absolutely not. Although I am a high-end Control Freak and absolutely own up to getting majorly stressed in the time leading up to any major event (sometimes the minor ones, too) that I am planning, I tend to snip only a little bit at those around me–more like I’m slightly PMS-ing–and keep much of my anxiety bubbling right below the surface. You might think, as a Control Freak, that I would enjoy watching these shows so I could critique what these ladies are doing wrong in their wedding planning process. Nope.

Occasionally I wonder if these shows are actually what they seem to be. I mean, do these women somehow KNOW that they are going to be a Bridezilla and then contact the show to try to get on, or do they play it up for the cameras? Hard to say, I guess.

I guess what it boils down to is that although I hate drama in my own life, it’s really fun to watch a woman turn into a cartoon character and cause a tornado to happen all around her about the littlest things. Okay, some aren’t so little. Here are a couple of my favorite clips. Buckle your seatbelt!

When I was grabbing the clips off Youtube, I found this one. I think when you watch it you’ll get why I love it (starts at :42), and quite possibly the reason I love this show in general!

By the way, I saw this on the official website. Any takers?
