Do Tell: What is your Guilty Pleasure?


guilty pleasure

We all have them. Those little indulgences that make us feel a little bit guilty, but that we relish every moment of. My greatest guilty pleasure is reality television, specifically Bravo reality shows. I watch just about every Real Housewives franchise. I’ve seen and loved every season of Top Chef. I love watching Jeff Lewis on Flipping Out and Rachel Zoe on The Rachel Zoe Project. I watched the first season of Bethenny’s show and I plan to watch the new one as well. I even enjoy Million Dollar Listing. I’d say the only one I don’t watch is Million Dollar Matchmaker. Andy Cohen has done a fabulous job with his programming line-up and he’s reeled me right in. But enough about me! I want to know what your guilty pleasure is. Is it chocolate (I love that, too)? Weekly spa treatments? Expensive letterpress stationery? A cocktail every now and again? Inquiring minds want to know, so do tell. What is your guilty pleasure?

  1. oh my gosh, i love bravo. it’s my mom and I’s bonding time. We watch Real Housewives, Million Dollar Listing, Tabatha Salon Take Over (i think that’s on bravo?) and our fav FOR SURE is miss “B-A-N-A-N-A-S” Rachel Zoe!! love her!! And I heard shes pregnant! so happy for her!!
    but my guilty pleasure is and always will be, starbucks. When I’m down, or when I’m happy, it’s my go to drug. Something about it just brightens my day.

  2. 1) bananaberry splits from Gloria Jeans Coffees

    2) ben & jerry’s strawberry cheesecake ice cream (if it wasn’t for calories I would eat a pint in one sitting multiple times a week…it’s the best flavor ever).

    3) RHOA (real housewives of ATL), Wendy Williams and all her tackiness, lol & Basketball Wives. That’s my limit. I’m trying to keep my brain cells.

  3. Anyone know if Nine by Design will have a 2nd season? I loved that show and I don’t usually care for reality tv. No judgement, but I’m easily made “second hand uncomfortable”, so it’s hard for me to watch reality shows! Ha ha.

  4. triple cream brie and baguette for dinner, truffle oil pizza, rachel zoe project, champagne, expensive lotions, top chef (which is kind of educational!), and the Kardashians. In that order 🙂

  5. Oh I have to agree about Bravo!! My Boyfriend dies every time a new Housewives season is created cause he knows the DVR is going to be filled with them. My other guilty pleasures would have to be a big piece of Tiramisu every now and then, Fashion Magazines (going to barnes and noble can be dangerous), and buying new OPI nail polish.


  6. I’m right there with you with being hooked on Bravo reality shows. The only one I don’t want is top Chef. Love all that drama! Other than that, I spend way too much money on hair products! How do you know what’s best until you’ve tried them all?! 😉

  7. I only consider it a GUILTY pleasure if it does absolutely nothing conceivably healthy for mind or body. Chocolate is a pleasure, but if it’s dark chocolate, you could argue the health benefits 😉
    So, taking that into account, I’d have to say watching Real Housewives (BH), or reading (and relishing) celebrity gossip blogs.

  8. Um are you joking??? I Love all things Bravo as well but that’s not what makes me feel guilty… What does are the other reality shows I watch on MTV and other stations. One being the Jersey Shore!! I heart all of them! Oh and my husband and I still watch Real World. I am hanging my head in shame right now!

  9. Illy coffee beans in the pretty silver canister, chips and salsa with Patron Margaritas while watching any and all of the Housewives, Flipping Out, and to top it off…making & eating the best chocolate cake ever from the Just confessed, feel much better. ~Jennifer

  10. Dessert for breakfast. I’ll make cake,or pie, or tarts after dinner, but always enough so that I can have some for breakfast. There’s nothing like a rich buttery tart with mascarpone cheese filling and berry compote to make a morning.(What I had this morning.) It’s disgusting, I know.

  11. I’d have to say The Bachelor and chick lit are my greatest guilty pleasures … cheese and crackers … cheesecake … US Weekly …

  12. I just love reality but sometimes I can’t take the stress of the “trashtastic” shows like Bad Girls Club. Bravo is my go to station because of the Real Housewives franchise, but Jeff Lewis and Flipping Out is my all time favorite!

  13. I never tire of watching the melt downs on the make-over episodes of America’s Next Top Model. And I can’t get enough of HOARDERS; is it wrong that I love the “screwed-up-ness” of it all?

  14. HOLA! Magazine – The original reality show and still as frivolous as ever. Have followed these people for years and years, wotched them fall in and out of love, their children grow and their marriages annuled. All while living la dolce vita.
