Don't ring the "Bells"

I've had several people ask me about the Wedding Bells show today. My sister said she was going to call me and get me out of bed to watch it - since I was sick - and BTW... my eyeballs are feeling just fine today, thank you. Anyway, I did watch the show. Actually I was really looking forward to it. I thought it would be a bleed from "Whose wedding is it anyway?" but it was far from that. Yes, I did laugh when the wedding singer sang "I will survive" - who sings about surviving a break up at a wedding? - and I did laugh when the planner spoke into her talkie "we've got a runner" but other than that it was very disturbing. Sure we get difficult clients - none of which are you! - but thankfully they are few and far between - if they weren't I wouldn't love this industry so much - but to build a whole show on the difficult client, have a planner sleep with one of the groomsmen - in a linen closet no less - have one of the planners drink at one of the functions, have a Rabbi bribed to say "Jesus" and have one wedding totally cancel is not what we do. Oh, and why do they always make men out to be total morons on TV? Do you actually think my husband would be calling out day and night "but I'm the COO" - what the heck is the deal with that? Why is it that the man has to play a total idiot on TV? Did you ever notice that? They're always really big dummies that remind you of Baby Huey. At any rate, what a total let down. I don't watch TV much since Seinfeld went off the air. I think I may watch an hour of TV a week. So needless to say, I was totally looking forward to having an addiction to this show that would tie into my business. I thought it was going to be something that was going to be a buzz in our industry. Something that we could run to the web and say "did you see those totally AWESOME centerpieces on the Bells last night?" Instead LOTS of planners were disappointed last night. I'm glad I wasn't the only one.
