We’ve seen drug addicts, teen moms, chronic hoarders, and a host of people with other serious issues sacrificed to the reality TV gods — their deeply personal troubles and struggles paraded before us for our casual entertainment. Now, apparently, it’s people with eating disorders’ turn.
Yep, Lifetime TV has announced plans to premiere a new reality show following people with eating disorders, “Starving Secrets,” on December 2. The show’s host, Tracey Gold, who as a teen starring on the sitcom “Growing Pains” went through her own struggle with anorexia nervosa, swears the show will be tasteful and not exploitative, but honestly, I have a hard time believing that will be the case.

Consider me officially excited about next summer’s “Snow White & The Huntsman.” The trailer is out for one of the two Snow White films currently in production, this one starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White (would her first name be Snow, last name White? Just wondering.) and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. The trailer focuses almost entirely on Theron, who appears to nail the deliciously evil thing, but gives very little impression of what Stewart’s Snow White will be like, although she does seem more bad ass than the Disney version we’ve come to know. Now, here’s hoping the trailer for the other ”Snow White” — starring Lily Collins as the heroine and Julia Roberts (?!) as the Evil Queen — comes out soon so we can compare the two.
Meet Arthur. Arthur’s mom, Emily Cleaver, is a photographer and she likes using him to reenact classic scenes from movies.
