Fake Or Real. Really?

I can't believe what I'm seeing. Is this really real?

I was watching "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (don't judge) this afternoon. When that show was over the next one began. I'm still waiting for the punchline. Here I was, being welcomed by the host to "Fake or Real: The ultimate plastic surgery game show". Huh?

Our host informed us that three women would be coming on stage, each trying to convince the "celebrity judges" that they've had plastic surgery when, in fact, only one has. If the judges claim that someone looks "Fake" when they are actually "Real" then that woman wins the prize of... wait for it... $1,000.

yeah.

I kept waiting for the laugh track. Something to tell me that this was not only a joke to me, but to those participating.

I just about lost it when I saw the "celebrity judges". Now, I'm not making this up, the first judge was from MadTV, Debra Skelton. I do think she's funny but, um, well... anyway. The second "celebrity judge" was, and I am NOT making this up, brief-case carrier number 11 from "Deal or No Deal". WHAT?!? The third "celebrity judge" made a lot more sense, it was the delightful pink tie wearing plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Rey from E's own "Dr. 90210".

Yet, still no laugh track, and everyone seemed to be taking this seriously.

I had to draw the line when I saw the first contestant. She came bouncing down the little staircase as hard as she could. It made my back hurt.

What's going on here?!? Are these people serious? If this is something that continues to air on the E! Network I have some words to say to my TV boyfriend, The Soup's Joel McHale... 'Run! Run Like The Wind!'

  2. Wait. Let me see if I've got this straight. It's considered a good thing if you look FAKE but they're actually REAL? Isn't that kind of insulting?
    "Robin, good news! You look like you had a really bad boob job!"
    "Oh no, Ann, it's even BETTER than that! They're real and they're spectacular!"
    Gawd, when did it all go downhill?

  4. But Robin, that's just it, we're not supposed to let it go "downhill"!

    I didn't watch the rest of the show, but I'm sure it was sponsored by the Plastic Surgeons of America.

  11. I think it's sad. They (I mean many people/shows/"experts") make it seems like we HAVE to have surgery as we age otherwise we fail.

    I don't buy it.

  12. Um yeah no thanks. I'll stick with Celebrity court. You know the show where they let celebrities be the jury.
