This weekend relax with some reality TV marathons.
Once upon a time, Thanksgiving was a holiday about giving thanks and stocking up before facing another brutal winter. Now it's all about family dysfunction, overeating, insane shopping habits and football--it's enough to exhaust anyone.
So when you're ready to recharge your batteries, turn on the TV and settle into a reality TV marathon. You can escape your own life for awhile and instead watch some Real Housewives melt down, consume some Top Chef culinary creativity, catch up on shows or sample one you've never seen before--say Breaking Amish or Shahs of Sunset.
Or watch Oxygen's marathon of America's Next Top Model, hosted by former Top Model judge Nigel Barker (unceremoniously discarded when the show was revamped, Barker will soon return as host of Oxygen's new modeling competition, The Face). Added bonus--a sneak peak of The Face during the Top Model marathon!
Check out the weekend's line up of reality TV shows and series marathons in my guide to Thanksgiving 2012 Reality TV.
Give thanks, don't get caught in any Black Friday stampedes and enjoy your holiday!
