Real Housewives of Catholic Media – Who Would You Watch?

Thanks for enduring a few days of “radio silence” here on the blog folks. Hopefully it prepared you for the onslaught of sharing that’s about to happen over the next few days.

I always have the best of intentions for blogging when I’m on the road, so in some “alternate reality” I imagined myself working twelve hour days sharing this week’s USCCB meeting with you live via Twitter and then retiring to my hotel room to offer “real” posts in greater detail. That was the same reality where I would have managed to write the book foreword that was due two days ago, to have loving cell phone chats with my husband and sons from the road, and to keep up with my overburdened inbox.

Obviously, none of that happened.

The trip was amazing — my head is literally still spinning from the blessing of spending a few days in the company of Bishops from around the country and sharing it with my fellow Catholic Bloggers. I have some great content to share with you, but first I have to take care of a couple of things at home and finish that book project too.

So in the mean time, I’ll leave you to have a little fun with the image I’ve shared here. Ashley Collins‘ “imaginary smash hit” is actually like a vamp off of the real-life project being promoted by the NET channel in New York.  Minor Revisions takes a “real world” life at our friend and fellow blogger Jennifer Fulwiler of Conversion Diary. From the trailer, which I’ll share here, it looks like “don’t miss” programming — authentic, entertaining, and featuring things like scorpions walking across kitchen floors. I will be watching for sure!

But while I’m catching up on a bit of stuff today and organizing the content I want to share with you, I’ll leave you to “daydream” a bit in the comments. If you were going to cast a Catholic reality TV show, who would be your “must have” participants. The sky’s the limit, and I’ll get us started with my “picks” in the comments. Secondly, you might share your thoughts on how projects like this can encourage and lift up the average Catholic in the pew… or if they should even try to do that.

See you soon!
