Reality bites

Yuck! This is one reality TV show I will not be watching. Who comes up with this stuff--and why are they still employed?

How do you mend a broken heart? By getting angry, getting even and getting over it! Real people who have undergone traumatic divorces learn how to move on with their lives, on Ex-Wives Club, an empowering new reality series premiering MONDAY, MAY 28 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The show is hosted by three women who know all about breaking up -- famed "exes" Angie Everhart, Shar Jackson and Marla Maples.

OK, that last sentence is actually kind of funny. The only one of those names I even recognize is The Donald's ex. Apparently, Shar Jackson is the significantly less famous ex-wife of K-Fed, who is himself only famous because of his other ex-wife. And I still can't figure out who Angie Everhart is supposed to be.

Commercials airing now show one woman pushing her ex's car out of an airplane and watching it implode on the desert floor. According to the web site, getting revenge is one of three ways the show is 'helping' people 'move on' after their divorces. And instead of Dr. Phil, we get some lady who wrote a book called Spiritual Divorce: Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life. As if.

Let's hope this one gets canceled after the obligatory three episodes, never to rear its ugly head again.

Yes, let's hope.

Vengeance is never an answer. And as the Bible says "Vengeance is mine saith the Lord."
