Who Do You Want To See In An All-Gay Version Of “Real Housewives”?

Perhaps you’ve heard the exciting rumors that the team behind the “Real Housewives” franchise has been working on a new all-gay version of the show. Well, apparently, it’s really going to happen … and soon! Casting will start in the next couple weeks and creators hope to begin production in November. The show is tentatively titled “Kept” and will air on the MTV-owned all-gay channel, Logo. It will focus on the lives of wealthy and fabulous gay playboys in Manhattan who love to party it up at the hottest clubs and swankiest parties. If you thought rich housewives could be drama, just wait till you see men who have flatirons and know how to use them. Keep reading »

… And We F**king Love Them For That: SNL’s Jenny Slate & Other Fleeting Expletives on TV

The 35th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” dropped a bomb on American TV screens – an F-bomb. On her first night on last weekend’s show, newest cast member Jenny Slate swore during the “Biker Chick Chat” skit. Slate’s only the most recent example of the “fleeting expletive” (an instance of profane language or images on a live broadcast). Here are some more examples of live profanity on television.

  • “Saturday Night Live” has long been a bastion of bad language. The most famous instance came in 1981 when cast member Charles Rocket slipped up during a skit parodying Dallas and its “Who Shot J.R.?” episode, uttering “Oh man, it’s the first time I’ve been shot in my life. I’d like to know who the f**k did it.” (Rocket was fired later that year.) A year before Rocket’s expletive incident, future “Letterman” bandleader Paul Shaffer had let one loose. And in the ‘90s cast members Norm MacDonald and Cheri Oteri also cursed during the show. [NBC Miami]
  • Rock stars have kept the FCC working overtime, too. When U2 appeared at the Golden Globes in 2003, frontman Bono described winning as “really, really f**king brilliant!” The government agency also looked into Motley Crue singer Vince Neil’s exuberant “Happy F**king New Year!” on the “Tonight Show”‘s Dec. 31 broadcast. After a 2005 “SNL” performance, NBC also had to answer for System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian, who yelled “f**k yeah!” (System was performing their song “B.Y.O.B.,” which frequently uses the line “Where the f**k are you?”).

Life’s No Longer Beautiful: Why “TBL” Got Canceled

It sounded like a good idea for a TV show. It had a celebrity producer. It had a big TV star, and some fairly well-known young actors. “The Beautiful Life: TBL” seemed like it had what it takes to make it, but it didn’t. After airing just two episodes, the CW has canceled the show. Where did they go wrong? After the jump, what “The Beautiful Life” could have done to stay on-air. Keep reading »

Quickies: TV’s First Loss of the Season, Plus A Death in the Beatle Universe

  • “The Beautiful Life: TBL” is the 2009-2010 TV season’s first casualty. [LA Times] — Poor Mischa.
  • Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy tie the knot in France. [Life & Style] — See, Hollywood, it is possible to get married quietly!
  • Lucy Vodden, childhood friend of Julian Lennon and the influence for “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” has died at 46 after a battle with lupus. [Entertainment Weekly] — “Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes, and she’s gone.” Rest in peace.

Eww, “Mad Men,” Eww


“Mad Men” has been a lil’ up and down for me this season, with some serious highs — the “everyone has a talent” episode! — and lows — slowwwwww moving storylines, for one. On last night’s episode, something totally climactic happened, but it gave me a case of the pukes. Yes, “I wanna take you in that bedroom, lock the door, take your clothes off with my teeth, throw you on the bed, and give you a go-around like you’ve never had,” is a hot pick-up line — but uttered by Duck?! VOMS.

Hey, Strippers And Whores Can Write, Too!

The Canadian literary scene lost one of it’s stars last week, when author Nelly Arcan was found dead, allegedly by suicide, at her apartment in Montreal. Arcan wasn’t just any writer: she’s Canada’s version of Diablo Cody! Her autobiographical novel, Whore recounted her life as…well…a whore. Arcan (neé Isabelle Fortier) was raised in heavily Catholic community in rural Canada and, like many a good Catholic girl before her, was drawn to Montreal’s XXX scene when she moved to the for college. In Whore, her character Cynthia gives us a peek at the life of a young woman whose sexuality was stifled as a young adult but burst open like a pipe bomb with the help of an escort agency.

Jenny Slate Makes Her Debut On “SNL” By Dropping The F-Bomb

And this is her face just seconds after doing it. Jenny Slate, the newest addition to “Saturday Night Live,” kick-started her time on the seminal comedy show by accidentally letting the F-bomb slip during the show’s season premiere. (An NBC spokeswoman told Radaronline.com that Slate will not be fired. We should all be so lucky!) I would say that Lorne Michaels is probably pissed, except the episode was so not funny, that he’s probably grateful for the distraction. Watch the clip here. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Fame,” “Coco Before Chanel,” “Surrogates,” “The Boys Are Back,” “Capitalism”

Well, it’s officially fall, ladies. Time to retire your bikinis and start packing on the winter pounds and you’d better hurry because I’ve already got a head start! Training includes consuming lots of empty calories and then sitting really still for long periods of time. Where better to do that than at the movie theater? This week is all about pretending to be what you aren’t, like a talented dancer in “Fame,” a beautiful android in “Surrogates,” a capable parent in “The Boys Are Back,” politically versed with “Capitalism: A Love Story,” rich enough to afford Chanel with “Coco Before Chanel,” and a nice guy with “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men.” Keep reading »
