Shhh! I have a confession!

This is a TOP SECRET Sheilacakes confession. Please don't tell anyone!

I am guilty of watching those cheesy Lifetime Movies. I love them. Not the sappy romantic ones. They bore me to tears! I love the ones where someone is killed and there is all kinds of mystery and suspense with horrible acting. I watched a movie called “My Neighbor’s Secret”. It was pretty good. It wasn’t anything impressive. Here is the plot: A man and woman get killed in the airport parking garage while her husband is at a business meeting. Come to find out the husband had the wife killed cause she was having an affair or something. They never really made it clear. Then the husband started stalking the neighbor’s wife and falls in love with him and he hates her husband because he got her a job and blah blah blah.

You know how it is at the end. The bad guy gets hurt or killed in some weird fashion. This time it was being stabbed by the neighbor’s wife after she accidentally stabbed her own husband. Although he wasn’t killed he ended up in the nut house. There are never really good endings to those movies. They are all very predictable too. Yet I still find pleasure and watching them. They are fun to make fun of too.

My mom and I watched a lot of them when I was pregnant with my son. I don’t watch them too often though. I think my favorite “Lifetime Movie” is A Girl Like Me. That is a good one, It is about Gwen Araujo and she was murdered for being a trans-gender. It is a real story too. I also thought Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy was a great movie.It is also a true story about a woman who is in her twenties when she found out she has Breast Cancer. She wore red lipstick because it gave her courage to fight her battle with Breast Cancer. I definitely cried at the end like a baby. I am not saying I don’t like some warm fuzzy movies cause I do, just not normally on Lifetime. Well unless they are “real” movies.

I started watching a movie called Karla, it is a true story about the Barbie and Ken Killers. Karla was an abused woman who got sucked in to her boyfriend’s rape and murdering spree in Canada. I watched about forty five minutes of it before I had to turn it off. It was a good movie, it was just scaring me. It was late and I kept hearing noises outside and I was spooked. Normally I love watching Lifetime but occasionally it will scare me.

I am so lucky to have both Lifetime and The Lifetime Movie Network so I can indulge in all the cheesy movies I want! ? I couldn’t get in to the Nora Roberts or the holiday movies on Lifetime. I actually got sick of Fa-la-la Lifetime because all the movies were all happy and sappy. Seriously people how many different ways can people be “related to” Santa Claus? Do you like Lifetime Movies? Does your husband watch them with you? What are some of your favorites?

  1. I always get sucked into the Richard Grieco ones. He seems to have starred in a few of them - oh and the one where the cheerleader kills the popular girl.
