Screw You, Bravo

I don't have cable anymore. We stopped paying for it as soon as we realized that nearly everything you get on cable that's worth a damn can be watched online for free. That perspective really makes it feel like you've been pissing $100 out a window for awhile, right?

Right.

So we cancelled cable, and thanks to sites like Hulu.com and ComedyCentral.com, I get to watch pretty much everything and anything I find interesting anytime I want.

Except for one stupid fucking network.

Yeah, I'm looking at you, Bravo. You asshole. (Or azul, as Domestic Diva might say.)

See, I got hooked on Bravo's shitty reality TV while I was home with a newborn all last summer. The Real Housewives, Rachel Zoe (who's pregnant! Yippee!), Top Chef, Millionaire Matchmaker. You name it, I probably watched it. And my husband made fun of me for it.

But apparently Bravo thinks their shit is too good to be watched for free online. Which is ridiculous when you consider all they do, all week long, is run mini-marathons of their shitty shows over. And Over. AND OVER AGAIN.

I've been pissed about this for awhile. "Watch full episodes online for free anytime at BravoTV.com!" Fuck you, liars. I've already written to Bravo about this issue.

The bastards put totally random-ass episodes up online for free. Never in order, never on the same day of the week. And then they pull them after like 2 weeks.

What prompted this particular rant?

The fact that I received an update to let me know that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion: PART TWO!!!!! was now available to watch online.

Not part one. That was never available. Not the season finale, which I also have not seen. Not even the last 2-3 episodes of the season, which they also have never put up.

I hate you, Bravo. You got me addicted and now only give me random fixes at your whim.


So there, Bravo! Put that in your Full Episodes Player and smoke it!

I'm thinking that maybe posting pictures of little tiny soccer hooligan kiddes angrily flipping the birde is not gonna win you many Top Mommy Blogge votes.

@CPP: Though you might be surprised, given the content of some of those Top Mommy Blogs, you're probably right.

But that photo still makes me giggle!

I'm with you on Bravo. It's like a big pile of Crack, smoked with a remote control. And still I say, there's nothing real about those housewives.

And I want you to teach me how to get the vote button on my blog. But you know, for my blog. Not that I don't love your's or anything. ;)

I totally agree!!! Why is only NYC HW on-not OC or NJ. First I believed it was because all of the houseviwes would not agree to free acess because they wanted to profit from the future DVD's.

I agree with you 100%. I actually pay a lot of money for cable and dvr service. I've been sick because I'm finally pregnant (hubby and I have been trying a long time). So I was too sick to watch live and too sick to remember to dvr the part 1 reunion episode of Vanderpump Rules. The episode I missed is not available on my cable's On Demand service (all the other episodes are on there except reunion). I did DVR part 2 of the reunion but don't want to watch until I see part 1. I tried going to Bravo's site and video is not available unless you want to purchase it. It is not free anywhere online and has been removed from YouTube. The only way I can watch it is if I purchase it. I am so upset with this ripoff (I already pay for the damn channel through my cable). I was so upset, that I started looking up other sites that have this complaint. The only way I found anything was by eventually typing Fuck Bravo episode ripoff. It brought me here and I'm glad I can vent to someone else who understands.
