Well, it’s been nice knowing you, but seeing as the rapper Shawty Lo now has a reality TV special featuring himself and his 10 babymamas, it’s pretty clear the endtimes are here. Shawty, real name Carlos Walker, will have an upcoming special on — you guessed it — Oxygen. Apparently three of the 10 babymamas have opted out of the show, but that still leaves… Keep reading »
I’ve watched reality shows where contestants design clothes. I’ve watched reality shows were contestants cook. I’ve watched reality shows where contestants cut hair. I’ve watched reality shows were contestants design rooms, write magazine layouts, make creme brulee, etc, etc. So you best bet that I will be watching Oxygen’s “Best Ink,” a series the network greenlit last week. Why? Because it’s a reality competition series for tattoo artists. Ten tattoo artists will compete to see who is the best, and the winner will take home $100K plus a cover story in Tattoo Magazine.
Umm, why did no one think of this sooner? Keep reading »
Most professionals have paid their dues while advancing their career, and oftentimes this includes internships. I’ve been an intern several times, including here at The Frisky, and while I took some internships more seriously than others, I don’t think I’ve done anything as egregious as the interns featured on Oxygen’s “Running Russell Simmons.” This new reality show, which premieres tonight at 11 p.m., focuses on the women who keep mogul Russell Simmons on track. For the most part, it seems Russell would be nowhere without his competent staff, but his interns are completely clueless. Peep the video above in which Sagen gives rapper T.I. a “Basic Instinct”-style crotch-shot, then check out two more videos after the jump, especially the one in which the interns get stuffed in Russell’s bathroom as he’s about to get it on with a hot babe.

The success of Bravo’s “The Rachel Zoe Project” has proven that people want a behind-the-scenes look into the fashion industry that goes beyond a bunch of designers competing to show at fashion week. Oxygen has answered this call with “House of Glam,” which features the team at The B. Lynn Group, an image consulting agency that has worked with Rihanna, Tyra, Jamie Foxx, and other celebrities. The team is made up of several high-profile wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists and groomers, and even a personal trainer. Think of The B. Lynn Group as a one-stop shop for a celebrity looking to create a cohesive and noticeable image. But unlike “The Rachel Zoe Project,” there doesn’t seem to be one person the group kowtows to or one person who gets all the credit. Each artist is in charge of his/her career, but as with any art, even fashion and beauty, egos certainly get in the way. And that’s where the drama makes “House of Glam” worth watching. Check out another video, in which a stylist and a celebrity publicist butt heads over a catsuit, after the jump. Keep reading »
Let’s talk about sex, baby — one last time. Sue Johanson, the sweetest little grandma with the dirtiest big mouth, hosts the well-loved question and answer program Talk Sex With Sue Johanson on Oxygen. After six seasons, which aired in five languages and in 20 countries, the show is getting a happy ending with this Sunday’s episode — a sex toy special. But it sounds like a case of premature ejaculation to us! Although Sue will still answer your burning questions via the Oxygen website, we will certainly miss our weekly date with the septuagenerian sexpert. [TV Guide] Keep reading »
