MTV’s Model Makers: Because Eating Disorders Make For Great TV!

Really MTV? Now, I know I can hardly knock ya too much — after all, The Hills is my vice — but when I read about an upcoming show called Model Makers, I knew maybe my favorite craptastic network had gone too far. Billed as a “Transformation Make-Over” reality show, Model Makers advertised for contestants with the following ad:

Have you always wanted to model but don’t know where to start? Maybe you don’t know the right people. Maybe you are not thin enough. Maybe you are not photogenic. MODEL MAKERS will give you the ultimate make-over and transform you into the model of your dreams. Women come in all shapes and sizes, but models don’t. The term model conjures an image of stick-thin, towering beauties oozing confidence, glamour, poise and sexuality from every pore. ‘Skinny,’ ‘no body fat,’ and ‘size zero’ are the words and phrases associated with models. ‘Chubby,’ ‘well-fed,’ and ‘big-boned’ are not…

Romance On TV: “The Hills” Is Back And More Scripted Than Ever

By now, it’s pretty much accepted that The Hills is, to a certain degree, scripted. According to a recent article in Entertainment Weekly, parts of scenes are re-shot (for example, if the girls enter a nightclub and a crowd of people get in the way of the camera, the producers will have the girls enter again), Lauren Conrad and crew let the producers know in advance what their plans are (partially so that they can get approval to shoot at any venues and also so that they can devise a “storyline” for the week), and the producers also have no control over whether the girls play any of their conversations or actions up for the cameras.

Sexual Trend: Lesbian Is The New Black

The hit song of the summer, I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry, is the soundtrack for a new sexual revolution. From co-ed LUG’s to Hollywood’s hottest stars, girl-on-girl action is steaming up the streets and screens across the U.S. What publicly started with Madonna kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the Video Music Awards in 2003, has grown into a full-on, leggings-style TREND.

Romance On TV: Tila Tequila Gets Dropped

On last night’s season finale of A Shot At Love II, Tila Tequila offered her heart to Kristy, who then promptly turned her down. The two of them really seem to be acting, and badly, and this just reinforces my gut feeling (and the internet rumors) that Tila isn’t bisexual, but knew she had to pick a lady this time around to keep up the facade. Having Tila get dissed just adds more drama AND opens up the door to season three of this crap fest. Sigh. I miss Laguna Beach. Keep reading »

    Poll: What Is Brody Jenner’s Biggest Flaw?

    Just now, Amelia and I were discussing Brody Jenner and the upcoming trash-fest that will be Bromance. “Does the fact that he’s doing the show make Brody less attractive?” Amelia asked. Duh. “But what turns you off the most: Bromance, the Gothic-lettered “Jenner” tattoo running down his side, or his Gothic jewelry line?” Me: “HE HAS A GOTHIC JEWELRY LINE?” Oh dear. (Brody doesn’t actually design the jewelry, but he is the marketing director for Archangel. I hope he doesn’t believe in his product, but the Gothic tattoo suggests otherwise.) And so we ask you, what makes Brody less attractive to you (if anything)? [NOTE: The photo above features Brody wearing an Archangel necklace. It was taken back in 2006, though, so maybe he's stopped wearing such hideous accessories.]

    Rock The Cradle Seriously Rocks

    Um, have you guys watched Rock The Cradle on MTV? My DVR has been filled to the brim with enough crap, but I came across this clip on DListed and immediately regretted not prioritizing this awesome badness. The show centers around rock “royalty” who also want to be as famous as their parents. It’s a talent show, supposedly, but just listen to the pipes of Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi. Sandra Dee’s daughter sings like that? Ick. That apple fell in a totally different orchard, if you know what I mean. Keep reading »

    Two Shots For Tequila

    On April 22, Tila Tequila is getting a second shot at love…and by love we mean a reality TV game show. Even after she jilted her hot lesbian flame, firefighter Dani for macho meathead Bobby, MTV has agreed to give the bisexual body-shot lover another chance to drink and wive. OK, we get why Flava Flav and Bret Michaels have dating shows — they were both in popular ’80s bands and somehow manage to still have groupies. But Tila? Her claim to fame is having a lot of MySpace friends, which, let’s face it, takes more slutty pictures and free time than talent. Honestly, if that is what it takes to get your own TV show, maybe we should all start accepting those never ending friend requests from creepy old dudes and crappy bands. [MTV]

    “We’re Living In A Green House…Not The Color Green”

    The 20th season of The Real World premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV. Yawn. This time, they’re living in an environmentally friendly home in Hollywood that looks like the set for a kids’ TV show. The place features a salt-water pool, a computer that runs on a battery that’s charged by riding a bike for two hours, bamboo soy candles (the wax is edible!), and dual-flushing toilets that also wash and dry your rear or front — no toilet paper necessary. This could make for an interesting season. [Think.MTV.com] Keep reading »
