The Essential Guide To Everything You Need For Proper Reality TV Viewing

While we patiently wait to see the deals that Amazon is going to offer up on Prime Day 2018 (which kicks off tomorrow, July 16th, if you didn’t know already), we got to thinking about not only reality star products that we’ve seen over the years, but also about the products we consider (half-jokingly) “essential” for proper reality TV watching!

The Essential Guide To Everything You Need For Proper Reality TV Viewing

1. Popcorn

Because, let’s face it, this Michael Jackson meme says it all. We’re here for the reality show drama like a good, suspenseful movie. So we scarf down one bucket while watching and then another as we read the site comments about the episode!

2. A really, really big TV

What fun would reality TV be if we couldn’t get those UP CLOSE shots of post-plastic surgery Housewives in HD on a 70″ screen?

3. Rosé and 4. Wine glasses for your rosé

It’s basically an essential ingredient for reality TV watching, especially if you’re deep into the latest season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And what better way to drink it than in an official Real Housewives wine glass?

5. Calming Tea

For those who don’t drink alcohol, there’s no better way to watch the tea being spilled than to do so while drinking tea. And since the shows are drama-filled and tense (season 5 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey for the win), why not grab a good calming tea for your nerves?

6. A Good Pillow

Yes, a pillow. It serves many purposes! You can scream into it when you’re frustrated by the antics on the screen. You can bang your head into it over and over without waking the kids. You can also use it to smack your binge-watching partner in a “holy shit, did you see that!?” sort of way. You can also use it to cover your eyes, but we all know you’re rewinding that mess to see it anyway.
