The creators of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and Bravo’s “Miss Advised” are partnering with Ashley Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions to cast for an exciting new docu-reality series on a major cable network. The show will focus on bright young women who are proud to be educating themselves while working towards their most important career goal yet … becoming a wife!

We want those blossoming, vibrant women to stand up and speak out about their journey to receive not only the degree of their choice, but to find the husband of their choice! We are looking to document these amazing women on the adventure of their lives pursuing their MRS. Degree!

Well.  I am…  speechless.  Way to go, reality TV.  It’s hard to pinpoint why this is jarring.  Possibly because of the assumption that you are looking to “become a wife” rather than finding a relationship that allows for shared goals and vision.  Possibly because I am “looking to find a man” in the process of getting a phd, and no one’s ever made a reality TV show out of my life. Maybe it’s the overall tone of Barbie + grad school that leaves me dumbfounded.

I’ll leave it at that.
