Two black men are taking ”The Bachelor” and ”The Bachelorette” to court with a lawsuitthat claims the reality shows are blocking contestants of color from starring roles.
Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson filed a federal lawsuit in Nashville Wednesday against the popular TV shows claiming they are engaged in a pattern of racial discrimination that intentionally excludes people of color. The Nashville men said at a casting call in August that they were given scant consideration compared to white men seeking a leading role for “The Bachelor.” Read more…
I guess Tyra Banks is aware that she’s grasping at straws on this season of “America’s Next Top Model.” You know when you do a segment called “Tooch Teach” that it’s time to change stuff up. After 19 Cycles of almost exactly the same thing, Tyra has decided to clean house for the next season of the show. Yesterday, J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker were dismissed from the “Top Model” family to make way for “major changes planned for [the next season].” PR mogul Kelly Cutrone was the only judge to survive the blood bath. But that could be because Tyra’s scared of her. I know I am. Keep reading »
At Burger King, you can “have it your way.” And one Japanese guy really took that to heart, by customizing his burger with more than 1,000 pieces of bacon. My very special next boyfriend candidate likes bacon so much that he had the fryolater workers at his fave fast food joint add 1,050 slabs to his sandwich, rendering it absolutely impossible to actually shove in one’s mouth. Not that he didn’t try. Which is what I actually admire in him — his sandwich fortitude, or sandwichatude, if you will. It warms my cold vegan heart. [Huffington Post]
This hilarious note was photographed by my brother in the basement of his apartment building. It seems they’ve been having a raccoon problem there, and the management’s solution is to simply gently knock and acquiesce the use of the washers and dryers over to the raccoons. Please, step away calmly.
Another day, another bizarre rich girl vanity project, this time from Katie Chonacas, aka Kyriaki Sunday, who apparently took a trip to Monaco and “almost lost her heart” there. That’s why she penned this bubbly, name-dropping, weird spoken word track about her clubbing vacay to the Euro hot spot, and the man-child she almost fell in love with. THEY BOTH LIKE BANANAS, PEOPLE! I mean, if that’s not a sign of a real connection, I don’t know what is. This is a must-watch. A must-watch. [YouTube]
In a not-really-surprising move, British boyband The Wanted has revealed that their song “Glad You Came” is about orgasms. Glad you came, get it? It seems awfully obvious when you think about it.
Being a boyband, The Wanted has a pretty young audience. A lot of their listeners are probably too young to pick up on the dirtier aspects of the song. What a surprise they’ll be in for in a few more years. This got us thinking back to the pop music from our childhood. Read more…
