Somehow I missed the first three seasons of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” during their television run. But the show found its way to me thanks to the magic of Netflix live streaming. Now that I’ve watched all three seasons consecutively, I think this reality TV diamond in the rough may be my most favoritest of all time. Why? Well, obviously because drag queens are fabulous. They are talented, creative, and courageous lady boys who can turn feathers into gold. And that RuPaul Charles! Dammit! I knew she was a Cover Girl, but I didn’t know she was the most inspiring human being to ever host a television show. She’s everything Tyra Banks wishes she could be on “ANTM.” Yes, I walk away from every episode having learned how to properly contour a jaw line or bedazzle a butt cheek, but I also leave with glittering hunks of wisdom. After the jump, important life lessons I’ve learned from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” You’d better work, bitch! Keep reading »
We fell in love with Zach Anner when we saw his early submission to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network’s “Next Reality Star” competition. Wheelchair-bound Zach, who was born with cerebral palsy, wanted to make a travel show, showing that his disability wasn’t going to stop him from exploring the world around him. Zach won us — and about a zillion other fans — over with his quirky humor, and lucky for him and all of us, Zach got his own show. These days he’s traversing the globe filming “Rollin’ With Zach.” Check out a short teaser above — featuring a theme song by John Mayer. [Oprah]
Tonya Cooley, who appeared on MTV‘s “The Real World: Chicago,” is suing two of her male cast members on “The Real World/Road Rules Challenge” for allegedly raping her with a toothbrush. According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Tonya is suing Kenneth “Kenny” Santucci and Evan Starkman for allegedly taking a fourth cast member’s toothbrush and rubbing it against her labia while she was passed out (which I’m assuming means drunk, not asleep). Kenneth and Evan also put the toothbrush inside her vagina, which is sexual assault. Keep reading »
It takes an interesting type of person to agree to sign on for a reality TV show. Some are kooky, others ambitious, most fame hungry, and a few, well … just plain shady. Last season on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” it was easy to see that runner-up Morgan Wilson was a total egomaniac, but I never would have guessed he was into hardcore kiddie porn. Click through for more about Morgan’s crime and check out some other Reality Stars with checkered pasts. Where do producers find these people?
Got plans Sunday night? Me neither. No, I’m not asking you out on a date. I am, however, suggesting you maybe watch the Style Network’s new reality/makeover show “Glam Fairy,” which premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. It looks like “Jerseylicious” meets “How Do I Look?” meets “Toddlers & Tiaras: The Beauty College Years” (if such a wonderful thing existed) which I think we can all agree equals guaranteed entertainment. Meet the Glam Fairies in the clip above and then check out a sneak peak and a clip from the episode here.
This post was sponsored by the Style Network’s “Glam Fairy,” premiering Oct. 23 at 8 p.m., but I really am planning on watching this for my own personal enjoyment.
