I’m currently somewhere between the Amusement and Attraction stages of the Lifecycle of Emotional Reactions to James Franco. (So funny! So cute! Even with his “Spring Breakers”‘ cornrows.) But as one’s feelings about James are forever evolving, I know it won’t be long before I’m making my way through the Admiration, Annoyance and Abhorrence stages, coming full circle (again and again). Something tells me that I’ll be firmly entrenched in the latter stage once Franco’s reality show, “James Franco Presents,” makes its debut on Ovation in November. Keep reading »
“The Hills” is long gone, but the faux reality memories live on. In this newly released alternate ending, we get a different “choose your own adventure” conclusion. This time, Brody says goodbye to Kristen and hello to Lauren. And Lauren? She smiles and laughs in a kind of evil way. It’s possible that this was actually the intended final message — Lauren Conrad is a bitch you just don’t wanna mess with? What do you think? Which ending do you prefer? [MTV]
There’ve been teen moms. There’ve been “guidos.” There’ve been rednecks. The next cultural subgroup to get the MTV reality show treatment are a little more, well, innocent: virgins. The hour-long “docu-soap” will follow a group of 18- to 25-year-olds who are remaining abstinent. Some will undoubtedly be tempted and struggling with their abstinence, while I imagine others will give voice to a segment of the population — young, cool and not having sex — who aren’t often portrayed on MTV.

As has become tradition, last night, ABC announced that a cast member from Desiree Hartsock’s season of “The Bachelorette” would be the next “Bachelor.” I anticipated that this would be the case, but I didn’t dare get my hopes up that the reality tv dating show’s producers would actually select a guy I liked to be their latest hunk — without fail, they pick one of the guys I was bored to tears by. Jason Meznick, Bob Guinney, Sean Lowe … yawn. Surely, ABC would continue to pick the safe option and recruit Drew or Zak, with their schmaltzy love songs and sob stories, to be the next “Bachelor.” But something crazy happened — ABC actually picked someone I, and the rest of America if I’m being honest, wants to fuck.
Ladies, the next “Bachelor” is Juan Pablo Galavis, the Venezuelan former soccer player and single father of a young daughter. That sound you hear? Panties. Dropping. Keep reading »
So that is what I looked like from the outside when my fiance dumped me out of the blue! Just like Des on part one of “The Bachelorette” season finale, which aired last night (the conclusion airs next Monday). Desiree, who had narrowed her choices down to three men — Drew, Chris and Brooks — clearly thought she had found true love with one of them … but it turned out his feelings for her were less, um, sure and so he decided to bail (for now — I suspect he comes back for part two of the season finale, because, seriously, where can Des go from here?), catching Des seriously off guard. It was really, really upsetting to watch because A) Des is so genuinely heartbroken and shocked, and B) it was like watching myself five years ago. Cringe. Watch all 17 minutes and 36 seconds wretched minutes in the three clips above! Keep reading »
My obsession with “Big Brother” has crossed a line, you guys. Ever since I got the live feeds for this season, I haven’t been able to focus on anything else. I mean, the CBS show itself is alright, but the live feeds are 24/7 and feature tomfoolery they would never show on television. That’s why I can’t turn them off. Click on for 20 signs that you or someone you love is also completely and totally addicted to the “Big Brother 15″ live feeds (in “BB15″ GIFs obviously)… Keep reading »
“One of Nashville’s most prolific fathers.” Orlando Shaw is noodling a reality show about his 22 children by 14 different women, as well as his impending grandfatherhood by his pregnant 16-year-old daughter. He has recently signed a production deal with “a prominent Los Angeles agency” which could lead to a TV show; he’s also received “an inquiry about a possible movie.”
Shaw’s reality show, if it ever comes to fruition, wouldn’t be the first OMG WTF breeder reality TV show. There’s “19 Kids And Counting” (or however many kids they have these days) and of course every reality show about the multitudinous Kardashian Klan. And who can forget “All My Babies’ Mamas,” the never-aired reality show on Oxygen about the rapper Shawty Lo and the 10 different women he has has 12 children with. It had tens of thousands of viewers petitioning to keep it off the air. Keep reading »
Sure we all love ’The Bachelorette,” but it’s not the romantic dates, the not-so-friendly competition, the eye candy, or even the man tears that keep us coming back week after week—it’s the unadulterated drama.
We love it, and it keeps us glued to our televisions, which is why the best night of the season is “Men Tell All.” After weeks of questioning certain motives and wondering why some guys hated each other somuch, we finally hear directly from the fellas, and they finally get a chance to get everything off their chests. Those ever-so-defined chests.
Here are 13 things we’re certain we’ll see during tonight’s big show—and we can’t wait. Read more on Your Tango…
