No, Thank You For Being A Friend

We thought we loved “The Golden Girls,” but apparently we don’t. At least not as much as the guy who got Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sofia tattooed on him in the shape of Mt. Rushmore. Not your bag? Then how about a back piece featuring the cast of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” or an arm tattoo of never-nude “Analrapist” Tobias from “Arrested Development”? Check out this collection from Flavorwire and see if you can spot your favorite shows on other people’s body parts. [Flavorwire] Keep reading »

“Nikita” And The Sexy Ass-Kicking Female Stereotype That Won’t Go Away

What to think about “Nikita,” a new show debuting on The CW tonight at 9 p.m. (EST)? Based on the 1990s TV series, which was based on the French Luc Besson flick “La Femme Nikita,” in this incarnation of the story, martial arts star Maggie Q plays a woman rescued from prison by the CIA to become an assassin in a secret division. She has escaped their clutches and after years in hiding, she wants to rescue others from the division’s control.

A smart woman? We love it. Principled characters? Great. But why does Nikita have to be yet another ass-kicking female in tight pants, stilettos and a blowout that always looks just-so? Keep reading »

“Hellcats” Debrief: We Are Loving The Tiz


A funny thing happened while watching last night’s premiere of “Hellcats,” the new TV show based on my book Cheer!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders. Yes, I got a little giddy seeing my name flash onscreen in the opening sequence. Yes, I found my hips shaking during the cheer scenes and Aly Michalka’s awesome “Flashdance”-esque dance round the living room. And, yes, I totally got chills in the final scene where the squad saunters toward the entrance of a cheer competition. But I was surprised at just how much I loved Ashley Tisdale in the episode.

Old-School Wednesdays: “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It”

It’s funny the little things we remember. Like, how I stayed home one day to memorize the lyrics to this song (I still know all of them). Or how I can’t watch this video for R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” without thinking about how my friend Rachel said she was going to marry the boy in the video one day. The adorable boy in the video, it turns out (thanks Google!), is Noah Ray, a scrawny kid from Athens, Georgia, who happened to be plucked from obscurity and made a video star. Sadly, his R.E.M. affiliation ended up kind of ruining his life. He was teased so mercilessly for being in the video that he dropped out of high school, and now fronts his own terribly named band, Music Hates You. So no, Rachel never did marry him. Keep reading »

So, Danielle Staub is off “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But she is not out of our lives forever.

Make Your Own “Hellcats” Video

Exactly a year ago, I got word that a production company was interested in optioning my book, CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders, and turning it into a fictional TV show. Tonight, the show—”Hellcats“—premieres on The CW at 9 p.m. (EST), right after “America’s Next Top Model.” To hype up the show, The CW has created this awesome app called “Get Your Cheer On” where you can plug in your and your friends’ faces and watch yourselves do a cheer routine.
