I’ve written before about my obsession with “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International,” how I watch approximately three episodes per day, how much I love to hate it, how I always end up yelling at the TV like a crotchety old man because the subjects of the show tend to talk about paint colors in the kinds of hushed, serious voices usually reserved for presidents facing a nuclear crisis. But now I’m feeling crotchety for a different reason: apparently the show is totally fake. Here’s a quote from a former House Hunter describing her experience:

“They didn’t even ‘accept’ us being a subject for the show until we closed on the house we were buying.  So then when they decided to film our episode we had to scramble to find houses to tour and pretend we were considering. The ones we looked at weren’t even for sale…they were just our two friends’ houses who were nice enough to madly clean for days in preparation for the cameras!” Keep reading »

Watch Colbert Defend Those Crazy Radical Nuns!
  • Better late than never: it is from Monday night’s show, but I really wanted to post Stephen Colbert coming to the defense of “radical feminist” Catholic nuns. Love you so hard, Stephen. [The Colbert Report]
  • On how Republicans in the House of Representatives are blocking abortion access for our servicewomen. Apparently even if you’re willing to give your life for your own country, that’s not reason enough to get basic women’s health care. (Yes, basic health care: one in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime … including women in the military). [Mother Jones]
  • At Sunday night’s Tony Awards, “Porgy & Bess” star Audra McDonald became the first-ever woman of color to win five Tonys (and only the third woman ever). [Racialicious]

Stephen Colbert Has A Great Plan For Sweden’s Twitter Account

Watch Video

So maybe you’ve heard about Sweden’s weird Twitter experiment, wherein they’re allowing perfectly average Swedish citizens to take over the country’s Twitter account for a week at a time. The nation’s current national Twitterer is a woman named Sonja, who seems mildly obsessed with Hitler and Jews and “The Little Mermaid.” Don’t believe us? Check out this Tweet…

Well, well, well. Look who it is. Colin Powell, former Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, was on CBS  this morning and added himself to the pantheon of “Call Me Maybe” covers. Technically it’s not a cover — he just sings a few bars with Gayle King — but its still clear the man knows his Carly Rae Jepsen from his Demi Lovato. Who knew? [Popdust]

So Andrew WK is pretty much the best dude. While I’m not a fan of his music — which consists largely of rock songs about partying –  I can say with absolute certainty that he is genuinely as kind, smart, sweet and enthusiastic as one might hope their favorite Rock Star Who Sings Primarily About Partying might be. It comes as no surprise that Mr. WK would be totally into anything to do with fun, partying and generally having a good time. So of course he’s hosting a panel at this year’s My Little Pony conference.

Which is a real thing.
