The LDS INVASION!!!

That is right America! Here we come! We are ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! Well, at least it seems like it anyway. What is with the huge influx of LDS (Mormon) people in Reality TV? Now we have David Archuleta: American Idol (cute as a bugs ear), Brooke White: American Idol, Zach Wilson: Dance Wars who just happens to be Julianne Hough's: Dancing with the Stars, former fiancé!!! If I watch any more reality TV, I am going to feel like I am at church. (Just kidding)

But really! I can't decide how I feel about it. In some ways, I appreciate the positive image and goodness that oozes from the screen when they are on, I mean, did you see them trying to make Zach "sexy" on Dance Wars? [ok, this is where I would admit that I love watching reality TV shows that have to do with dancing or singing.. I just can't help it,I watch them all] They did a whole 'package' on how they were trying to get him to be "sexy". It really was hilarious. He just had no idea how to be!

Then there was Marie Osmond all last season on DWTS, and of course the Mitt Romney Run. It just seems like we are more prevalent than ever! Can you remember a time when there have been so MANY mormons getting so much press?

At the same time, it sometimes seems strange that they are seeking fame and fortune the Hollywood way. I feel a little duplicitous about it. Anyone else? This is it people! State your opinions!!! Am I the only one who is on the fence?

Well, I guess most people wouldn't know about all the LDS people on TV unless they researched it and most probably don't. I know I definately don't. Unfortunately, I think the Romney campaign did more to hurt Mormons than help, especially in his consession speech when he played the terror card. SO LAME. There is one very powerful Mormon in the public right now and I bet nobody can guess who he is! I'll let you think about it...

And No, it's not Glenn Beck. Ugh. Think from Nevada...that's your clue...
