I Need An Answer

Two years ago, WordPress asked what my reality TV show would be called, if I had one.  I gave a whole list of names and then asked what your reality TV show would be called.

Four comments and not one suggestion. Disappointing.

I’ll ask again, because I’m a tolerant sort of blogger.  And I’ve got nothing to write about today.

Based on the fact that the Tilly Bud family don’t talk, we yell (how else can we force our opinions on each other?), here are my options:

  • Maltesers & Mayhem
  • The Loudest Family in Britain
  • The Bachelor [when the Hub throws me out]
  • Living With The Loudies 
  • How Clean Is Your House?  Who Cares?
  • Family Cries  
  • Trading Insults
  • Argumentation Argumentation Argumentation
  • Stroppy And Loving It
  • Loud And Loving It
  • Wife Swap (No!  Take Her For Free!)
  • So You Think You Can Cook.  Hahahahahahaha!
  • Grumpy And The Big Tut
  • Threes Are Loud
  • Meal Or No Meal
  • Who Wants To Marry My Dad (Now My Mum’s Thrown Him Out)? 
  • If No One’s Arguing, Everyone’s Dead

So come on – what’s your reality TV show called?

    Yours could be called Tilly’s Taunts and mine could be called Just Julie.

    For me: House of Sighs☺
    For you…it’s right above: Malteser Privileges Revoked


  3. Elaine - I used to be indecisive January 8, 2013 at 08:45 #

    Hmmmm. Based on the title of my blog, I think it would be ‘Indecision – Are you sure?’ 🙂

    I wouldn’t watch any of them – mainly because they don’t ring true!

    “The strictly jungle + junk x food factor” – would that drag in an audience?

    Meal Or No Meal or Wife Swap (No! Take Her For Free!)

      hmmmm I need time to think of that one…..aha! ‘Time is not on my side’ it could be all about what aged people get up to in their lives when trying not to think about the slippery pole that we are sliding down….

      Yours should be the last one on your list…’ if there is no shouting ..they are all dead’

      I admire your tenacity in reblogging an old post maybe I should try that…Luv ‘n stuff P

        I tidy up and repost from the days when I didn’t have many readers. It seems a shame to waste a decent post by leaving it in the past. 🙂

      Saucy minx!

    So….tell me about your Dad!


  11. viveka January 8, 2013 at 12:31 #

    I think …. ” I’m not a Celebrity, but Get Me Out of Here”. *smile … not on your list, but does it have to be.????

    My show would have to be “Who’s Codependent?” On the show, I would share events and my responses, and then, at the end, the audience would vote. Or maybe I would have a guest each week, and we would argue a point. One way or the other, the audience decides. It’s more of a game show, actually!


  13. Al January 8, 2013 at 13:18 #

    Computer stupor.


  14. mairedubhtx January 8, 2013 at 14:23 #

    Mine is “How Boring Can It Be?” since my daughter constantly tells me my life is boring. I don’t think it is but perhaps other do.


  15. laurieanichols January 8, 2013 at 14:23 #

    My fave is How Clean is your House, Who cares.! What would my reality show be? Name That Tune or The Dating Game what with the two babies looking for love or Wheel of Fortune hee, hee, hee what fortune? I don’t know, I would want it to be fun though, not boring,


  16. Karen Snyder January 8, 2013 at 14:40 #

    Aging; Gracefully or Not. 🙂


  17. Naia January 8, 2013 at 14:57 #

    Mine would be, “She Screwed It Up Again.”


  18. terry1954 January 8, 2013 at 15:46 #

    The Fear Factor, how many Malted Milk Balls Can you eat before throwing up!!!! LOL

    SOUND AND SILENCE (talkative hubby and blogging wife)


  20. slpmartin January 8, 2013 at 16:41 #

    I got nothing…oh, should I have noted that’s the name of my show “I got nothing!”


  21. Megan Broutian January 8, 2013 at 19:18 #

    I didn’t see the original question, so sorry. I like Trading Insults as a title but since there is so much love that transpires in your writing, when you talk about your family, that belies the focus on just insults, I’m gonna have to go with: So you think you can cook, muahahah!


    • Megan Broutian January 8, 2013 at 19:22 #

      Oh wait, you want to know what MY show would be called? LOL (note to self: always read the last line)… Mmmm… The Purse Whisperer? When The Going Gets Tough, She Goes Shopping? The poop, the princess, and the beautiful queen? Obviously I have to do some more thinking on this 😉

    I’m rubbish with titles, Tilly, and you want me to name a reality TV show?!
    How about Blogland’s Got Talent? OK… don’t answer that! 😉
    Ooh! Ooh! Apostrophe Catastrophe… a show all about dropped apostrophes!
    He he he! One of our Maltesers is missing… a show about – OK, I’ll be going now…


  25. benzeknees January 8, 2013 at 22:29 #

    The Bickersons (I think this might have already been used)
    The Natterers
    The Yeller & the Crier
    2 Fatties in Front of Laptops

    Hi! Didn’t know you back then, I guess?

    Our family loves seclusion and quiet. I love gray skies with no leaves on the trees, because it reminds me of black lace and sunny, colorful skies feel like an attack. Hubs enjoys rain because it means he gets some time off. So we often just sit and look at gray skies and/or rain. We love storms. Our kind of drama and noise.

    After a family reunion, we might come home and collapse exhausted on the couch and just look at the fireplace burning, or even at a candle.


    So, I think our show would be called “A Very Quiet Stone”



  27. sonofwalt January 9, 2013 at 02:18 #

    Hmmm… three sons. . . Big Brother and the Other Big Brother? T
    hat Was MY Line!
    Surviving the Baumans?
    (There is a town near where they live called “Jersey Shore.” I kid you not). Or The REAL Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania Redneck Style, or Jersey Shore, Inland Edition.
    Three is Enough! 😉
    American Idle?

    I don’t watch any reality show and there’s no way I’d be part of one, but the two titles I can think of would be:
    – Are you f*&%ing kidding me? (It’s an inside joke)
    – Shut up! No, YOU shut up!
    – Life without pink (that’s my pick)

    Have I got Pseu’s for you?


  30. evilnymphstuff January 10, 2013 at 07:52 #

    Malteser… haha of course it’s on top of the list! Love that one!
    My reality show? Umm… Write at your own risk.

    Big Mother

      After what has been a particularly overindulgent festive season, mine would have to be “Australia’s Next Top Waddle”


  33. eof737 January 16, 2013 at 08:45 #

    I like the first one… 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
