While I think the last thing the world needs is another reality TV show, this one looks like it may be pretty funny.

I have no use for the housewives franchises, or shows about mob wives and rock star ex-wives, etc., but this one looks like it may be more on the fun side like Duck Dynasty.

I think I'll set the PVR to check it out.

Quote:
Below are TLC's full descriptions of the residents who will be featured on Welcome to Myrtle Manor:

Becky: The trailer park landlord. Myrtle Manor has been in Becky's family for generations and now her father Cecil is turning over the business to her. Will she turn it into the five-star trailer park she has always dreamed of or will Cecil have to fire her before Myrtle Manor falls apart?

Jeana: Aunt to Becky. Having just split from her husband of over 20 years, Jeana is making a fresh start in Myrtle Manor with her motorcycle, her new look, and her no excuses approach to life.

Cecil: Becky's father, brother to Jeana, owner of Myrtle Manor. Cecil is the patriarch of Myrtle Manor and one of Myrtle Beach's largest landowners. Cecil's daddy built the trailer park and now Cecil is entrusting the family legacy to Becky. If she cannot keep the money coming in and the riff raff going out, Cecil may have to reconsider the future of the park.

Jared: The new guy after drifting from place to place, Jared storms into Myrtle Manor on his crotch rocket. Seeing Jared down on his luck, Miss Becky has a soft spot for him and literally gives him a new lot in life with a beat-up Airstream on a patch of grass. Jared can live rent free until he gets a job if he earns his keep by doing odd jobs for Myrtle Manor. He wants to do right by Becky, but will his wild ways get him into trouble?

Chelsey: Darlin' Dog Wiener Girl, Chelsey is the co-founder of Darlin' Dogs -- a struggling hot dog business on wheels. Chelsey is determined to create a hot dog empire on the boardwalks of Myrtle Beach, but when all the earnings go to parties and booze, the Darlin' Dogs will have a hard time making rent at Myrtle Manor.

Lindsay: Darlin' Dog Wiener Girl, the perpetually giggling Lindsay is co-founder of Darlin' Dogs. Less business savvy than her partner Chelsey, Lindsay is more interested in the Myrtle Beach nightlife than slinging hot dogs for cash.

Amanda: Newest Darlin' Dog wearing a "Bless Your Heart" trucker hat and a whole lot of attitude, Amanda is the turtle hunting, four wheel driving redneck of the Darlin' Dogs Empire. The Weiner Girls, Chelsey and Lindsey, found their new co-worker at a bar and they better be careful, because Amanda's motto is, "You can't call someone a true friend until you get into a fight."

Gina: Co-owner of Tangulls (Myrtle Manor hair salon) and hairdresser, Miss Gina has lived in Myrtle Beach all her life. When Becky wanted to give the trailer park a new image, she looked no further than Miss Gina to open a salon in Myrtle Manor. Although she doesn't live in the park, Miss Gina is more than happy to have Tangulls serve as the rumor mill for the residents.

Roy: Co-owner of Tangulls (Myrtle Manor hair salon), hairdresser and former drag queen, Roy might not be your average good ole boy, but Roy is as Southern as they come. Originally from a small town in North Carolina, Roy moved to the "New York of the South" after beauty school. He's worked the pageant route and is considered one of the top make-up artists in Myrtle Beach. Roy is the first to admit that his lips and cheekbones are surgically enhanced, but his man boobs are all his.

Taylor: Local club promoter, Taylor is the king of Myrtle Beach nightlife. When he's not at the club, Taylor is trying to manage his volatile relationship with his live-in girlfriend, Jessica. And if he needs any help, his mom Anne lives in the trailer across the street.

Gus: Taylor's dog Gus is Taylor's wingman, his confidant and his best friend. When not drooling all over Taylor's trailer, Gus is watching over Myrtle Manor.

Jessica: Taylor's girlfriend. With her fire engine red hair and piercings, Jessica is hard to miss at Myrtle Manor. The young beauty can be found flirting with the boy next door or fighting on the front porch of the trailer that she shares with her boyfriend Taylor.

Anne: Taylor's mother. Anne lives across the street from her son Taylor. With white wine in hand, she tries to keep the peace between Taylor, Jessica and all of Myrtle Manor. A little quirky, Anne's wisdom is uniquely Myrtle Beach.

Marvin: Security guard. Marvin is this five-star trailer park's head of security. Marvin's job is to ensure the safety of the residents, direct traffic and help Miss Becky keep the rules enforced.

Bandit: Jingle writer. This jingle writer, hot rod driving and New Yorker Roger is also known as "Bandit." His deluxe doublewide may look fancy on the outside, but inside, the roaches and mold are threating his makeshift recording studio. With his livelihood in jeopardy, Bandit is a jingle session shy from being evicted by Becky.

Miss Peggy: The eyes and ears of Myrtle Manor, Miss Peggy is the oldest resident at Myrtle Manor, but this little old lady has some surprises in store. Not your average Grandma, Miss Peggy reminds everyone you only live once and Miss Peggy is here to LIVE.

Shellie: The wiccan Shellie, one of Myrtle Beach's few and proud Goth wiccans, resides at Myrtle Manor. As the owner of a Goth/Metal Club on the boardwalk, her odd hours keep the trailer park residents talking. Ask her what kind of witch she is and she will explain there is no such thing as good or bad witches. Just witches.

Alyson: Becky's daughter Alyson is Becky's youngest daughter and the princess of the park. Currently in school for business, she one day hopes to take over management of Myrtle Manor.

That is way too many people to keep track of. I have seen the previews though and will likely tune in to check it out.

The residents Hve such broad personalities, it's very easy to get acquainted with them.However, Marvin the security honcho has a romance going with one of the ladies? Is it Jeana?
While I was a little embarrassed that I watched this start to finish, I didn't see that any of the characters were downright vicious, and that's why I've given up on those Housewives. I just don't like meanness.

I've watched 2 eps of this and am PVRing so will likely watch other eps at some point. This is a strange bunch of characters - the security guard, the dude who supposedly writes jingles and refuses to move, the guy who kicked his girlfriend out and then peed on her bed, etc.

This show is just a hot mess all the way around but I am enjoying it for the most part. The security guy cracks me up.

I'll catch this one day, but won't seek it out on purpose.
I got a little tired of the blonde girls on the first season.

I got through most of it but then had to go to bed - is what's her face working at the aquarium and not a law firm? I am shocked they are still married to be honest!

Amanda is always wearing the same swimsuit. She wore the same one three times on the show including to the Miss Myrtle Manor pageant. I kind of like it because of the coverage!
