In its infinite wisdom, Lifetime is debuting a new reality show that will be called “My Life Is A Lifetime Movie” starring real women sharing their true stories of drama: serial killer husbands, evil twin sisters, prostituting themselves to pay for a dental assistant degree. The best part is that the show will include “high-end recreations” of the juiciest bits. Obviously I am going to be watching the shit out of this.
“My Life Is A Lifetime Movie” is now in production, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hopefully that means its not too late for the Frisky staff to propose their own tales of middle-class-white-female woe?

“Rooming With Disaster”
When a small-town girl meets her new college roommate, she’s sure they’re going to be best friends. She never expected to be sucked into a dark underworld of lies, betrayal, kleptomania, projectile vomit, and Sublime cover bands. She never stood a chance.
