I spent a lot of time this weekend finishing Ben Elton’s Chart Throb – a vicious, hard-core satire on Pop Idols and reality TV. I loved it! It’s outrageous, disgusting and 100% true. What makes it worse is that I’m slightly addicted to reality TV, even though I KNOW it’s complete bullshit and there is absolutely nothing real about it. Highly recommended. In fact, I wish I had stayed home on Saturday night and read.

Oh, and as Simon pointed out in his comment, check out www.therealreview.co.za for Brent Meersman’s take on R and J. I am not alone!
