Week Two of the Live Rounds is Over...Who's Still Here?May 17, 2013
There’s no way around it. I have to admit. I literally have become addicted to The Voice. Within a matter of days, I caught myself up to the current episode of Season 4. And now I can’t stop tuning in every week to see who’s making it past each of the live rounds. I’m someone who doesn’t really like to watch competitive reality shows (Real Housewives, all day errrrday!!). I never caught on to X-Factor, American Idol or even shows like Survivor.

So they are hashing it out in the bathroom whilst Dr. Terry clips his toenails. Double-tasking, I like it. 8:04: Heather is complaining that Dr. Terry doesn’t take her seriously and is “always making jokes.” Then Heather gives him a laundry list of things she does for their children. To which Dr. Terry replies, “Did you say tutor twice?” ANOTHER JOKE? Heather is not impressed and tells the Doctor: “You are a jerk.” 8:04: In Dr. Terry’s defense, Heather did say tutor twice. So … Read more
