Let's face it. We spend more time watching reality TV than we do reading, or running, or studying modern architecture, or taking fine art classes... or doing all of those things combined. That's just the truth. Though you may wish, and even pretend, that your days are full of activities that put the Renaissance woman to shame, you probably spent last night watching the Real Housewives reunion special, followed by a rerun (or four) of Jersey Shore.
Wonderlisters, consider this your license to speak up at the water cooler the next time your coworkers ask if you're a fan of trash TV. "No, I usually stick to Lisa Ling documentaries and intellectually driven dramas." We all know that's not true, even when we say it to ourselves.
