What a hot mess. No, I’m not talking about last night’s “Jersey Shore” episode — I’m talking about Snooki. The gang took a weekend trip to Riccione; it’s a beach town that’s supposed to be the Seaside Heights of Italy, only it’s a million times classier. Most of the house wants to enjoy the beach and the beautiful weather. Snooki and Deena, though, plunged face-first into daytime drinking and exhibitionistic foolishness with such enthusiasm that they pissed off the other roommates before it was even dark out. I don’t blame them! Babysitting drunk meatballs is not how I’d want to spend my vacation, either.
I think I’m over Snooki. Like, over. Every irresponsible and crappy thing she does isn’t her fault and she doesn’t deserve. Talk about entitlement. She’s like a little orange Lindsay Lohan. Find out more about why I’m finished, after the jump: Keep reading »

After trying her hand at reality television and designing accessories, Jessica Simpson is finally ready to get back in the music game. She tweeted recently, “What kind of music would y’all want from me on my next album?

If Jess wants ideas for her album, let’s give them to her after the jump.

I’ve watched reality shows where contestants design clothes. I’ve watched reality shows were contestants cook. I’ve watched reality shows where contestants cut hair. I’ve watched reality shows were contestants design rooms, write magazine layouts, make creme brulee, etc, etc. So you best bet that I will be watching Oxygen’s “Best Ink,” a series the network greenlit last week. Why? Because it’s a reality competition series for tattoo artists. Ten tattoo artists will compete to see who is the best, and the winner will take home $100K plus a cover story in Tattoo Magazine.
Umm, why did no one think of this sooner? Keep reading »
Why, oh why, is “America’s Next Top Model” so compelling? Is it because the modeling industry is really so glorious that we’re thrilled by the idea of a normal girl getting a shot at it? Or is it that we just like to see pretty girls pushed to their breaking point via having their head shaved, being harnessed high in the air, or having to walk the runway with a roach? I’m not exacted sure, but since there have been 16 cycles of the show, with about 12 episodes a piece, I have invested roughly 192 hours into this conceit over the years. And that doesn’t count reruns, which I won’t lie, happens anytime a marathons is on. All this is to say, you better believe I will be glued to my seat for cycle 17, the “All-Stars” season. The show premiered last night and it was as good as I’d hoped. After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moments of the episode. Keep reading »
