So has anyone else watched the unofficial sequel to Surreal Life season 4, "My Fair Brady?" Does it warrant a thread?

The promos for this show were really good and I had no idea this was even in the works. I was never a Curry fan but she looks damn good on this new show. Chris is definately under pressure from her to marry.

So season 3 spun off into Strange Love with Flav & Brigitte, and season 4 spun off into My Fair Brady. I wonder if season 5 will warrant a spin off. Maybe a buddy comedy with Janice and Omarosa?

She's what every guy thinks he wants in a woman, but Christopher Knight is so level headed (see the Bonaduce thread for where he could be instead) he can't seem to help but wonder if this is can actually work or is it too good to be true. He can probably finally understand why Tony Nelson was so hesitant to get it on with Jeannie, something which you would think should have been a slam dunk. Also, I don't know if it was for the show, but Florence Henderson sure acts like she's really his mom.

I know one of the two people in this couple quite well and let me just say that this is not even close to an accurate representation of their relationship.

Both of them are "acting" for the camera (which surprised me when I saw it) and I think that's why the show is really dull. Although, I didn't think it would be very good when the idea was pitched to them.

Scripted reality? Do tell! How are they different?

The show is almost an extension of their Surreal Life antics. But from what I saw of press clippings after Surreal Life they seemed to be doing pretty normal things, like hanging out at NASCAR races and the like.

Oh, I forgot, you can't make a post without taking a jab at someone or being sarcastic.

Oh, and because you've seen them on tv, you know everything about what normal is.

You know whether it's normal for Chris to watch while Adrianne eats cake off Jane's boobs or whether Chris would actually make out with Jane in front of so many people including his girlfriend.

The show with Danny Bonaduce does not "come across" as scripted or that they are playing up their problems for the camera (although, duh, they very well be, nice catch with that). That, in my opinion, makes it far more interesting to watch. The show with Chris and Adrianne has the opposite behavior and I feel the opposition reaction while watching. Sorry for having an opinion that wasn't pre-approved by you.

I'm actually curious which one you know, and what's the difference. I haven't watched the show (did watch surreal life), but she's definitely hot although I don't think I could seriously date someone that out there.

Technically, I know them both, but they are both relatively new to one another's lives, so I really one know one well. Trust me, it's not bragging to know someone who's probably lower than Kathy Griffin on the Hollywood totem poll and she considers herself D-list. I had no idea this would happen. I would never write about either of them or anything personal I may or may not know here, because that would just be rude.

But they both take it up a notch from what they were like on the Surreal Life, where certainly both were more guarded, though you wouldn't believe that judging by some of the things Adrianne did. It's just really clear that they are playing things up in a big way for the camera. Maybe everyone does that, but when you can really notice it, it take away from the enjoyment of thinking you are watching what other people are "really" doing.

Adrianne is even more beautiful in person, but she is also just as "out there" as you are seeing and then some. Very interesting person...never boring.

So was I. But Mr. Sensitive went off on a rant instead.

Isn't it interesting how Mr. Sensitive didn't go off on a rant when someone polite, like spainlinx0, asked a question????

I wonder if there's a reason!!!! If you know, do tell.

I don't know if there is a history here, but Bill's initial comments didn't strike me as sarcastic or inflammatory AT ALL.

For what it's worth.....

I didn't watch the Brady/Curry show, but I did watch all of Surreal 4. I have the premier Brady/Curry on Tivo though, so I should get to it this weekend.

The Bondaduce show seems especially scripted to me, at least in the "therapist's" office. Danny particularly seemed full of shit. Course, that's common for addicts in denial and still using. His posturing when the therapist mentioned his kids was premeditated and designed to deflect his failures as a Dad.

I think you're onto something there. His whole "Don't you 'effing dare bring my kids into this" attitude rings hollow when he often gave up time with them to repeatedly cheat on their mom and partake in his various chemical addictions.

I've seen the Brady/Curry opening episode, and it seemed pretty fake. Too much mugging, too many broad reaction shots. I mean, just telegraph your ideas, why don't you?
Do you realize this is the third reality show Curry has been on? Is that a world's record?

no way, "The Miz" has gotta be running strong at 30 or so
