I am easily susceptible to secondhand embarrassment. I watch many reality TV shows from behind my hands or a pillow and visibly cringe when someone who is old enough to be my parent uses current slang. So maybe it’s just me being sensitive, but this video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton getting freaked by a singer/dancer at a dinner party in South Africa was embarrassing in a way I haven’t felt since walking in on my parents having sex in 1992. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. But still, when the dancer drops her butt low and backs it up into Hillary? Cannot be unseen. (Plus, now in GIF form after the jump!) Keep reading »
Men with hot bodies? Check. Incredible dance moves? Check. Reality TV drama? Check. Oh, hello, I have a new favorite TV show, and it’s called “All The Right Moves.” The new reality show on Oxygen follows four male dancers/choreographers as they embark upon launching their own dance company. Some of the faces are familiar: Travis Wall and Nick Lazzarini were both competitors (and beloved by viewers) on “So You Think You Can Dance.” They’re joined by the equally as dreamy and talented Teddy Forance and Kyle Robinson – seriously, you’ll probably have a hard time picking a favorite. (Personally, I’ll always be a Travis girl.) Check out the preview for “All The Right Moves” above, and meet all four of the guys, plus a bunch of other smokin’ hot professional dancers, in the gallery below. And catch “All The Right Moves” when it airs on Oxygen tonight, July 31, at 9/8C. [All The Right Moves; Facebook Fan Page]
This week’s episode of “Small Town Security” takes a break from chronicling Lieutenant Denis Croft’s time traveling love affair with his boss Chief Joan Koplan, and instead focuses on Joan’s husband Irwin. Irwin has a problem — and no, I’m not referring to his desire to dye his graying hair cherry red (which yes, is a problem). I’m talking about his hoarding issues. Irwin, Joan and everybody that comes within throwing distance of the JKK offices knows that Irwin is a hoarder. He’s so bad that he’s not only hoarded up his office and home basement, but he also has a secret hoarding storage unit, filled to the gills with newspapers, garbage bags and random Irwin ephemera.
To address his hoarding crisis majeur, Irwin brings in Dr. Sandy McKinsey, a blond management consultant, whose skin is not unlike that of Katherine Helmond’s in “Brazil,” stretched way too taut over her struggling facial features. Keep reading »
Did you catch “So You Think You Can Dance” last night? Another guy and girl dancer were eliminated (don’t worry, I won’t spoil the episode by telling you who, but SAD FACE), but not before the Top 16 performed. The talent this year is just so beyond, I don’t feel like any of them ever belong in the bottom three. I do, however, know what my favorite two numbers were — above, watch Amelia and Will do a fantastic jazz routine from choreographer Mandy Moore, Tiffany and George nail a fun hip-hop routine from Tabitha and Napoleon (who apparently call themselves “Nappy Tabs” now?), and Witney and Chehon score a standing ovation for their amazing contemporary dance.
I’m going to a wedding in a few weeks and am recycling a dress I love that I’ve worn before (see photo). I want to buy a new pair of nude-colored shoes to wear with it, but would ideally like to find something that I could wear with other, more casual outfits throughout the summer. I want to be able to dance in without killing my feet, so a wedge would be best I think. I’m having a difficult time finding something that isn’t either too formal or too casual, that is streamlined enough for this dress. Help! — Shoeless In NYC
Wedding season is the worst, isn’t it? You buy so many items you can never wear again. But we’re going to stop that right now. Yes we are. Instead, we’re going to make sure you get a few new pieces in your repertoire you can wear all summer long. After the jump, we’ve found some wedges that are wedding-appropriate, but that can also be worn to the office, or up in da clurb, if you’re into that kind of thing (which you totally are).

What happens when a girl, armed with only her iPod, decides to take her dancing out of her bedroom and into the streets, er, well, the mall? Hello Giggles sent correspondent Angela to the Galleria Mall in Sherman Oaks, California, to find out. [YouTube]
