Wacky Reality Moments 'Sunset Daze'-Style

Sunset DazeReality shows have given us some of the most talked about TV moments in years. Remember how much buzz was generated by Teresa's table flip on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'? Or most recently, Snookie getting punched in the face on 'Jersey Shore.' Yes, reality shows are a treasure trove of 'OMG moments,' so why should WE tv's newest show, 'Sunset Daze,' be any different?

Let's play a little game and imagine outrageous reality TV situations as they would occur on 'Sunset Daze,' a reality show following people in their 60s and 70s as they live out their wild golden years.

What if ... the cast of 'Sunset Daze' had a wild dinner like the cast of 'Jersey Shore' did on their first episode?

Who could forget when the cast of 'Jersey Shore' made a big Italian dinner, followed it up with a trip to the hot tub and ended their dinner party with Snooki passed out before the crew even hit the boardwalk? Well, if it was on 'Sunset Daze,' the dinner would be Gail's brisket, complete with a glass of water. Instead of shots, the ladies would partake in a cosmopolitan or two and the men would have a scotch on the rocks, naturally. The hot tub would be exchanged for the community pool (complete with a neighbor's visiting grandson) and instead of passing out like Snooki, the gang would've all taken quick naps before dinner. The cast of 'Sunset Daze' seems like they'd enjoy some dancing, especially Sandy, the JWoWW of the group, but we can't really see them doing any fist-pumping.

What if ... the ladies of 'Sunset Daze' got into a heated argument at a dinner party like the cast of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' did on the first season finale?
After watching 'Sunset Daze,' it's a little hard to picture any of these ladies getting as physical as the women of Bravo's 'Real Housewives' franchise. However, they seem to be as fiercely protective of their kids and spouses as the ladies of 'Real Housewives.' Tables probably wouldn't get thrown, drinks on the other hand -- those seem fair. Or a card table: Canasta gets heated?

We'd expect some harsh words, especially between any of the regulars and the new girl in town, Linda. Ann would try and keep the peace, but we can't see it escalating to a full-blown feud. These people seem to want to live their lives to the fullest, not waste it away on petty squabbles.

What if ... somebody on 'Sunset Daze' threw ham at their neighbors like Sharon did on 'The Osbournes'?
We're pretty sure this would go down exactly as it did on 'The Osbournes.' What Sharon did was such a cranky move, anybody on 'Sunset Daze' could do it and we wouldn't be surprised. Although feisty Gail might opt to hurl her leftover brisket.

What if ... Joanne and Sandy had a best friend breakup like Lauren and Heidi on 'The Hills'?
The BFFers on the show could totally pull a Heidi and Lauren. Joanne's been on a quest to get Sandy a new lover, but what if that lover was like Spencer Pratt? Let's say Sandy started a rumor about Joanne's "battery-operated boyfriend," things would get sour fast. The dance classes would get awkward and forget about anymore trips to the shooting range. We imagine a "You know what you did!" club fight, but it'd take place at their favorite diner. And maybe Sandy really wouldn't remember what she did ...

What if ... 'Sunset Daze' had a fight like New York and Pumkin on 'Flavor of Love'?
While 'Sunset' has shown us its ladies on their best behavior, there's bound to be some drama. It is a reality show after all. We don't think these ladies would get as nasty as New York and Pumkin, but Gail's a New Yorker, something tells us she's done a few spits here and there. The argument would be more of a point/counterpoint deal, grandparents love that style of bickering.
