I think I've dated some of these guys before...

... or, at least, Cleveland versions of them.

I mean, it's one thing to be close with your mom. (I actually quite enjoy when a guy has a good relationship with dear ol' mom.) But the guys (and moms!) on this new show from Ryan Seacrest are just completely ridic.

Don't get me wrong. I have dated some mama's boys myself. But the mothers on this show (especially the one who said her son could only date "a white girl") are completely and utterly insane. No. Effing. Way. would I ever in a million years date a guy whose mom is that controlling.

The Mush Mouth thought his mother could do no wrong, even though I swear she used to give me the evil eye every time he wasn't looking. (OK, maybe that's an exaggeration. But she DID tell him to buy me a giant Precious Moments necklace one year for Christmas, which I actually think was way worse than if she had actually given me the evil eye. Seriously. It was the size of a hood ornament. And heart shaped. And did I mention it featured Precious Moments?!?)

And I did absolutely love The Murse's mom (as in, she sent me a Christmas card six months after we broke up telling me that she always thought of me as a daughter and couldn't understand what was wrong with her son). What was wrong with her son was that she babied him so much over his lifetime that he couldn't make any decisions for himself as an adult (including whether to "get off the pot" after 6+ years of dating).

Anyhow, I can't believe I wasted an hour watching this effing "Momma's Boy" show. (In my defense, it was on after The Biggest Loser and I was just too lazy to change the channel. Which is a really ironic sentence when you think about it.) There goes 60 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.

Sort of like those 6 years I spent with The Murse.

I think my ex-boyfriend and The Murse must be brothers.....his mom was exactly like that!

If her son wasn't dating you, then all communication should cease on her end. No xmas cards and no lunch dates.

I'm SO glad I wasn't the only one sucked into that show.

(I had the lazy thing after the Biggest Loser, too. Geez.)

Although, it was SO awful I had to turn it off. It was just awful. All around.

(And I think Allison is right - although my family still gets cards from my mom's exboyfriend from HIGH SCHOOL. Weird, eh?)

Medicated - I don't know if it makes me feel better or worse to know that there are more men like The Murse out there.

Allison - she only sent a card that first year after the breakup. And I really didn't think it was that weird after we spent six Christmases (and lots of family vacations) together.

Ashley - if you find yourself EVER watching that show, immediately grab a pen, pierce your eyeballs and thank me later.
