Rock of Love, Tudor Style

Most of you don't understand the reality tv genre as I do. I know this is embarrassing for you, but it's okay. Please let me educate you on the origins of this indelible part of American culture. Oh yeah! I forgot it's a scourge on our civilization. I only watch it to feel better about myself.

Many people don't understand that they had reality tv hundereds of years ago in England. Let me take you back. (Imagine everything getting blurry and fuzzy as we go back.)

Meet the world's first reality star! He is looking for love. His name is Henry and he hails from England. He wants to find that special girl with which to share in his extravagant lifestyle. He enjoys jousting, fox hunting, hawking, platform tennis and beheadings. He would like a nice Catholic girl to be his queen.

He thinks he came directly from God, but what reality star doesn't to be honest. Here he is at leisure at his Hampton Crib. (Official publicity still)



He doesn't always like to be so formal. He is often seen hanging out in sweats and his favorite t-shirt that has a picture of Shakespeare on it and says, "Prose Before Hos". Here he is at a more casual moment.



You will have to keep tuned in to see what kind of ladies vie for Henry's affections!

OMG! Speaking of "reality" shouldn't there be a law against making people hurt with laughter this early in the morning? I saw Henry's first hat on an America's Most Wanted killer. Apropos?

But, if your name is Elizabeth, you may want to think twice about applying to be his mate.

Yes and there's a lot of hooking up as well. Lots o' arse and drama mama. The Tudors were the First Real World. He was the first Spencer and he had many Heidi's. I love it!

How do you do this so well on a Monday?

Stephanie said...

Actually, he never married an Elizabeth: three Catherines, two Annes and a Jane.

God, I'm such a geek.

Royalty has always been a focal point in the eyes of the people.

What is the likelihood that the Windsors would be willing to do a reality show?

I could imagine Prince Charles's wife Camilla in a series entitled "The Horse-Faced Whisperer".

Hi,
I love soccer moms but not hockey moms because they are like pitbulls with lipstick and I dont like pitbulls. I also love your blog and I think you would appreciate my sense of humor. If I link to your blog on my blog is there any way you could return the favor? I think we could both get more exposure!

Reality tv is just a way for any schmuck to become a celebrity, which is weird, because Really? Who REALLY wants to be a celebrity???

TheCynicalOptimist said...

This is great. And of course, The Hoff is timeless so why wouldn't Henry be sportin' some Hoff style wear?

Good grief, this series is so funny! Can't wait to see what happens next, and by the way -- I've never watched a reality show, every -- but I can't wait to follow this one.
