Lauren Conrad Gets Animated In Credits For Her Show That Will Never Be

Lauren Conrad has had cameras following her every move and cutesy glance from ages 18 to 22. It sure looked like she would be continuing the trend when she announced in December that she would be shooting a new reality series for MTV, this time focusing on her fashion moguling. But apparently, MTV has… More »


The Ladies Of “Skins” Show Some Skin In Elle

Considering that those PG photos of the Gleeks in GQ caused such a ruckus, I’m wondering if these images of the ladies of MTV’s “Skins” in the new issue of Elle will get any backlash. Sure, they’re reasonably covered—part of a spread on incorporating underwear into outerwear—but the actresses seen here are 17 and 16,… More »


Was Anyone Else Deeply Disturbed By The Latest Episode Of “Jersey Shore”?

I know I am late to the “Jersey Shore” bashing party, but I got a little bit behind on my television watching last week. Can we please talk about the latest episode? You know, the one in which Ronnie verbally abused and physically threatened Sammi and, oh, destroyed all of her stuff. … More »


“Jersey Shore” Cast Is Moving To Italy

Mamma mia! The cast of “Jersey Shore” is moving to Italy to film season four, presumably so Ronnie can see what the inside of an Italian jail looks like, too.

Dan Savage May Be Coming To MTV

My very favorite sex advice columnist and founder of the “It Gets Better Project,” Dan Savage, may be a new staple on MTV. Entertainment Weekly reports that he is currently working on a pilot where he goes to college campuses, fields questions about sex, dating, and relationships, and doles out his unique brand of no-nonsense… More »


Will MTV’s “Skins” Run Afoul Of Child Porn Laws?

I smell a publicity stunt: MTV is worried future episodes of “Skins,” its new show about the hormone-laden escapades of a posse of Baltimore teens, will run afoul of child pornography laws because of too much sexxxy sex. “Skins,” which debuted on Monday, is an Americanized version of a popular show in Britain; however, the… More »

Sad about lifestyle guru Oprah going off the air? Well, there’s a new dream-maker in town: Kelly Cutrone.

What To Expect From This New Season Of “Jersey Shore”

Crap, another season of “Jersey Shore” is on air already? Weren’t they just in Miami last week? (Oh, wait, that was the New Year’s Eve “Jersey Shore” marathon that I watched.) For the third season, the gang is back in Seaside Heights, NJ. You have to hand it to these crazy kids that their livers… More »


Is “Teen Mom”‘s Amber Portwood Going To Star In A Porn Movie?

That took long enough: Amber Portwood, the star of MTV’s “Teen Mom,” was arrested yesterday for a domestic violence assault on her daughter Leah’s father, Gary Shirley. As you can see from her mug shots, her skin is 90 percent less orange in the clink. … More »

It’s official—the first “Jersey Shore” cast member has been given their own spin-off show.

Snooki To Ring In The New Year … In A Dropping Hamster Ball

MTV has found its magic ingredient to stay relevant in a post music video world—”Jersey Shore.” And thus, the cast of the addictively sleazy show will be front and center at 2010’s MTV New Year’s Eve Bash. The special has lined up a series of “Shore” stunts to get viewers tuning in. The biggest and… More »


Nicki Minaj Is A Total Badass

Last Tuesday, the baddest lady rapper in the biz, Nicki Minaj, dropped her new record. And Pink Friday has three of my favorite things: pink, Fridays, and sick rhymes. But behind those fabulous rhinestone accessories beats the heart of the best thing to happen to rap since Jay-Z came out of retirement. Yeah, I… More »


Did MTV Steal The Idea For “Jersey Shore”?

Jersey Shore” may be the hot(tub)est show on television in eons. But one writer is considering legal action against MTV for ripping off his idea. Christopher Gambale submitted a treatment to MTV for a show called “Guidos: A Reality Series.” He wrote it and registered it with the Writer’s Guild of America back in 2006. More »


“Teen Wolf” Remade For The “Twilight” Generation

Some things are sacred territory in my book–and the original “Teen Wolf,” starring Michael J. Fox, is one of them. Apparently, MTV doesn’t agree, though, because it has remade the classic ’80s flick with a bunch of angsty, “Twilight“-y teens. This version looks like it features more overly dramatic acting than super cool… More »


Gay Porn Star Dustin Zito Joins Cast Of “Real World: Back To Las Vegas”

Today in Maybe, Possibly, Supposedly True News: my fave LGBT news blog, Queerty, reports that gay porn star Dustin Zito is in the cast of “Real World: Back To Las Vegas,” which MTV is currently filming. Hunky Dustin, 24, is allegedly a Lamar University graduate from Rayne, Louisiana (unrelated: the frog capital of the world),… More »


GLAAD Chides “Jersey Shore” For Using The Word “Tranny.” But What About “Glee”?

MTV’s “Jersey Shore” had a bit of a situation with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for airing what they deemed to be “one of the most blatantly transphobic scenes aired anywhere on television in the last few years.” During this season of the show, The Situation was out at a club, chatting… More »
