King of the Crown = A Must-See!

I'm not usually home on Wednesday evenings because, in theory, this is my night to work out, buy groceries and run other really facinating errands : ) But last night I decided to do some pilates at home and catch up on laundry, thus allowing me the opportunity to catch up on Wednesday night television. And what I discovered was pure, indulgent TV gold....and it's called King of the Crown.

The show premiered last night on TLC, so I felt really in-the-know having watched the first episode. King of the Crown chronicles the misadventures and drama of famed pageant coach Cyrus Frakes, a glittery, smooth talking southern gentleman that helps young ladies fulfill their pageant winning dreams.

Let's get one thing straight. This is a TOTAL guilty pleasure. And I'm sure many of the moments were scripted, like the scene in last night's episode where Cyrus makes two of the competitors "rehearse" their swimsuit walks in front of each other. I've never been a "pageant" girl, but growing up in the South, was fully aware of the importance of holding a title. But boy did I laugh alot...it was entertainment in its most raw form.

I'll be tuning in for all the AquaNet and false eyelashes this season, so let me know if you do too!

*King of the Crown comes on Wednesday nights @ 9/8 C on TLC.

  1. I watched this a few weeks ago and loved it! The episode was a little different- they had a designer of pageant dresses. He was on one of the seasons of Project Runway (another favorite show) and now designs pageant dresses in Oklahoma. Youre right; this show is a guilty pleasure!
