Whether it’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians or The Bachelor, stars really are just like Us – they can’t get enough. For some celebrities, like Rihanna, reality television is the perfect watch after a long day. During the coronavirus pandemic, the singer admitted that there was one Bravo show that she couldn’t stop watching.
“I’ve never made a secret of my love for reality TV and, during lockdown, I’ve been rewatching Vanderpump Rules,” the performer told Women’s Health UK in February 2021. “I honestly can’t get enough of it.”
Rihanna, who has previously opened up about her love for a variety of reality shows, explained that she enjoyed digging into new episodes after long days, especially amid a global quarantine, which began in March 2020.
“When watching reality TV, I can lie on my couch and switch my mind off from that’s going on,” she continued. “It’s my thing – and it’s pure escapism.”
“One of my favorite stories is my daughter was at a karaoke place and someone came in and there’s like a commotion, like a big entourage. She turned around and was talking to her friends and then she felt a tap on her shoulder and she turned around and it was Rihanna,” Richards told the Los Angeles Times in June 2018. “And Rihanna goes, ‘Oh my God, I’m obsessed with you.’ And my daughter started to cry and she goes, ‘I’m so confused, what’s happening?'”
Meanwhile, fans like Jennifer Aniston wouldn’t mind getting a little more involved when it comes to their favorite shows. During an interview with InStyle, the Friends alum revealed that she wasn’t opposed to taking part in the Bachelor franchise.
“God, I don’t know. I think they need a psychologist or psychiatrist, not just [former host] Chris Harrison — or whoever the host is now. There should be someone they can go and talk to,” Aniston told InStyle for their September 2021 issue.
Although Aniston wasn’t interested in taking over hosting duties for Harrison, who was later replaced by Jesse Palmer, the Just Go With It star did like the idea of lending an ear to the participants.
“OK, well, I’ll do that. Gladly. I’ll be the one picking roses in the rose garden,” she joked at the time.
The Morning Star also noted that even though each Bachelor show provided something different for its viewers, there is nothing quite like a nice getaway.
“The best version of The Bachelor is the island — Bachelor in Paradise,” Aniston added in the interview.
