Let me stary by saying I love the Lifetime Network. Their slogan "Television for Women" is completely false though. I think it is the station for women to get men into watching t.v.with them. It is the station for women to prove that emo movies are good movies. It is the station for women to demand control of the televison. Who they hell needs to watch grown sweaty men fight over a ball anyway? Is that still considered manly?
The men that I have made watch this station, when they quiet down from their kicking and screaming, love these movies when they finally shut the hell up and watch the damn things. The women in these movies are gorgeous and usually very natural looking.They are sometimes fresh and new actors. They are not your played out fake-boobed, run of the mill stars you see too much of and in the end, abhor. No, no. And where else can you see Ben Affleck at age 9? Did you ever wonder what those hot Angels of Charlies have done besides some really bad fake fighting television? Any many other stars in their younger years. The Andrew Lester story(Max Factor heir), stories of adultery, stories of murders, rape, and my favorite , a "little" one I like to call Lexy Anorexie. No pun intended. Ok, pun intended.
This occurred to me though one day watching "Diary of a Sex Addict" starring Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. The movie addresses addictions to sex as a disease portrayed by Mr. Hamlin himself (Who is married to Lisa Rinna in real life). It was a great movie indeed and I highly recommend it. The thing is, does this sound like a movie just for women? I think not! Men love sex and I think they would watch anything that had "sex" in the title.
The other point is, how educational can you get? I did not know there was a disease for sex addiction. You can actually go to support meetings and have a sponser for your abnormaly large libido. Its kind of like AA except you can drink but you cannot think about sex. Don't they go hand in hand though? I am so confused! And women can join too. Not only am I the president of the club, I am also a member.
So, I admit you may have to make a bet with your man you know he will loose so you can gain control of the t.v. for the night but if it is the right movie, I think it may go over well. My boyfriend likes all the period commercials that air in- between movies so I mean, to each is own. I mean, whatever! His face lights up and eyes widden like a little boy everytime he sees a bouncing red period on the screen or everytime he hears the word period, period. Who knows what these men like and why they like what they do. There is something on Lifetime for everyone!
Another whale of a movie is about a man with, I think it was five wives. None of them knew about each other until he dies in the end of too much sex. No actually, he has a heart attack, but same thing. It is funny though, they all meet at his funeral. I mean what man would not be entertained by this shit? If it were really a womens channel it would be about some chick with multiple husbands, which is not a bad idea actually. I better start writing that script.
I like Lifetime so much I recently subscibed to the Lifetime magazine. Now, I thought it was going to be more of a magazine about the movies and shows on Lifetime. On the contrary, its more of a Marie Claire or Elle or any magazine targeted to Women. Articles on "Why am I Always Cold" , which I am, or "How does Sheryl Crow Look 30 When She is Really 41" or something. It left me with a feeling of unsatisfaction. I would rather be cold reading about the movies I am watching and I really don't give a crows ass about Ms. Crow or her lack of crows feet.
To me, ordering Lifetime magazine is kind of like ordering a Tuna melt and not receiving the melt.
Well thats all for now. I just realized I say "i mean" alot. I mean, damn!
