Okay, okay, we have a confession to make: We’re absolutely, positively obsessed with the show Branson Famous. The country-themed “reality television musical” has us grinning like a possum eating a sweet potato. We can’t get enough of all the big hair and sequined dresses, family dramas and burning jealousies, and, of course, the impromptu singing confessionals.
In Episode 1 we were introduced to the Mabe family, who run a variety show called Baldknobbers Jamboree in the tourist town of Branson, Missouri. Naturally, there was quite a bit of family drama, mainly between Patty, the brassy family matriarch, and her son Brandon’s stubborn-as-a-mule girlfriend, Megan, who Patty reckons “came in like a sweet rain, then she tore through my family like a hurricane.”
Then Episode 2 introduced blonde bombshell Heater Gentry, a sultry, self-proclaimed “Country Britney Spears” from Mississippi who is determined to prove she’s got what it takes to make it in the country music scene, much to Megan’s disdain.
What will Episode 3 have in store? We can’t wait to find out.
