12 Life Lessons From Maury Povich

12 Life Lessons From Maury Povich

During summers spent with my parents, my mother and I would snuggle up with a cup of joe and watch Maury re-runs. Maury, Jerry Springer and other shows like it or “trash tv” are completely fascinating. This is America, not all of it, maybe not even most of it, but they are people in America who exist and lead this strange, bizarre and sometimes tragic lives. They volunteer their dignity for a little bit of fame. I wonder if they think Maury will actually help them? You can get paternity tests at pharmacies these days, so there’s no need to go on national television to find out who the father of your kid is. The show exposes a part of the American underbelly where teenagers have sex for food, men gladly walk away from their children, women are regularly called “whores” and teenagers are “out of control.”

It’s trash tv but it has to be amoral because the people on it volunteer to be on and the people who watch it volunteer to watch it. It wouldn’t exist without an audience. I think the word for it in German is  schadenfreude, the act of taking pleasure in other people’s misfortune. I have no idea why the guests are willing participants, I don’t believe they get paid to be on the show, just flown out to its location. I do know is that I enjoy watching the show, it’s insane, bizarre and I can turn my brain off. Why do you watch trash TV? Read more on College Candy…

Danielle Staub Performs Her Creepy Song For Maury Povich

 

Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Danielle Staub and her “singing partner,” Lori Michaels, stopped by “The Maury Povich Show” the other day. But they weren’t there for a paternity test, no sir, they were there to perform their single, “Real Close.” By George! They’ve created a new genre of music that I’m dubbing “skin suit pop.” It’s the song you sing to someone before you skin them alive. I’m thinking that she originally penned this tune for Jacqueline Laurita. Does she even need to ask why we’re so scared to be close to her? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Video: The Classy Ladies Of Maury Povich

If you’ve ever been unemployed, you may have accidentally caught some of Maury Povich’s talk show. Not me—no never. If you haven’t seen it or are unwilling to admit that you have, then let’s just say that it attracts some really, uh, high quality guests. This video highlights some of the finest ladies to ever grace Maury’s stage. Hey guys! Need a date? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

One-Legged Stripper Can Work The Pole Better Than You

I don’t watch “Maury,” so I missed this remarkable video when it aired, but if you can work the pole better than Lil’ Mama, aka Amber, who likely has one less leg than you, seeing as she only has one, and you probably have two, I’d like to see it. According to the accompanying story, Amber was on the show to meet up with an old flame, her high school sweetheart, and she wanted to show him how she could work it, work it as a dancer. I don’t know how that romantic reunion panned out, but TV Squad reports, “she didn’t let her prosthetic leg get in the way of her hot body action.” You go, girl! [TV Squad] Keep reading »

What The Happy Family Wears After The DNA Results On “Maury”

Maury Povich definitely sticks to a formula on his talk show. Without out-of-control teens and tweens and baby daddy/mama drama, he really wouldn’t have anything to talk about. Most sane people would never go on this show to air their dirty laundry and be humiliated. But there are some, like the woman who had 17 men take paternity tests that all turned out to be negative, who will take their 15 minutes anyway they can get it — even at the expense of what’s left of their reputations. These may be the type of people who would purchase these shirts. Wouldn’t it be fun for dad, mom, and baby to go out together wearing these tees: “I AM the daddy,” “You ARE the father,” and “I met my daddy on Maury”! That way everyone they meet will know they can’t manage their lives or conduct themselves like respectable adults. At least folks would take pity on the baby because she couldn’t pick her parents.

Real Men And Maury Povich

Anyone who has ever picked up a Playgirl has probably learned their lesson the hard way (no pun intended). The mag is famous for publishing naked pictures they get sent by amateurs in the “Real Men” section. While porn superstar Ron Jeremy got his start as one of these snapshots, you’re more likely to see some scary shaved grandpa-parts and silly sex costumes. We always make a point to flip past that page, but daytime talk show host Maury Povich wasn’t afraid to go there. Take a look at these clips from his infamous Playgirl episode special, which features more muscle than a race car, a mother who sent Playgirl pictures of her son, a jealous host, a mullet, and an appreciative granny. It’s classic! [About halfway through this video we think we spotted a flash of buttock, so it's potentially NSFW. That said, this did air at the same time as Sesame Street!]
