G stands for Guilty Pleasures

aka I probably shouldn't admit to liking this, but...

Guilty pleasures -- things we secretly enjoy that we never breathe a word about publicly, because let's be real... it can be embarrassing... but I'm one that just doesn't care. Really. I don't. Judge me if you want. I'm not going to stop being who I am. I'm not going to stop liking what I like. This is me. Deal with it.

First and foremost, I'm a reality TV junkie. If it's "reality" and it's on TV, chances are I'm all over it.
Real Housewives, X-Factor, Bachelor, Bachelorette, Amazing Race, America's Next Top Model, Jersey Shore... the list goes on and on. My favorite by far has to be Big Brother.

(I love the hell out of Jordan... and Jeff)

My summers are totally consumed by the Big Brother house. And then there are these crazy ladies:

Which I think is no surprise to anyone, given my fascination with organized crime. In fact, one of the very first reality shows I started watching revolved around a Mafia family.

And the there's music... ahhhh, music. I love all music, but I have a weak spot for cheesy pop (can we say Britney Spears?). Closest to my cheesy pop music loving heart, though, are guys like these:
(I still know how to do this dance)

Yes, I love boy bands. It started when I was 14 and it'll probably continue until I'm 104. Their music is catchy... you're lying if you say you don't know at least one song by one of these groups.

And finally, there's my love of the YA genre. I love Twilight. I love Harry Potter. Nothing anyone says will ever change my mind. The books, the movies, the entire communities surrounding them... LOVE IT.

I can't think of anything else. What are your guilty pleasures?
