I have a confession to make: ”Toned Up” is my new “guilty” pleasure — but I am unashamed.
My friend/workout buddy Kate introduced me to the show, which follows the lives of the ladies behind the Tone It Up fitness empire, and I’ve secretly gotten totally hooked. The show follows best friends Karena and Katrina (yeah, their names are really that similar), who started their exercise business together a few years ago. Yes, they are both model-gorgeous and do things like hold board meetings at the beach. But there’s a whole lot more to the women than that. Anyway, I’d certainly rather watch fitness gurus goof off on TV than angry housewives!
Here are just few reasons “Toned Up” is actually great: Keep reading »
Dare I say it, but last night’s episode of “The Bachelor” — which I livetweet every week from The Frisky’s Twitter account — might have been the darkest episode in the show’s history. Yes, I said “darkest.” I mean, not “Sons of Anarchy” dark, but the episode was more depressing than usual, and not because it featured a gaggle of women, desperate for love, fighting over one dude. No, last night’s episode was depressing because, during a group date, one bachelorette was coerced into getting “naked” for a photoshoot, while another got so wasted that she ended up having a crying freakout in the bathroom.

I knew Sharleen was going to be the oddest bird “The Bachelor” ever did see. On last night’s premiere, I was shocked to see Juan Pablo decide to give his first impression rose to well-traveled opera singer, Sharleen. The smart girl who reads Haruki Murakami gets the rose for once? What show am I watching?! I thought. And then my mouth really dropped when Sharleen was very clearly unhappy and weirded out about getting the rose, because she wasn’t feeling Juan Pablo as much as he was feeling her. So uncomfy was Sharleen that I almost expected her to turn it down and walk out the door in favor of doing math problems or something. I predicted yesterday that Sharleen wouldn’t have a shot at the final rose and she still doesn’t — because she won’t want it. Clip above!
Tonight, “The Bachelor” returns with super sexy Venezuelan single dad JUANNNNN PABLOOOOOOOO (I have to shout his name, I just have to, don’t question it) in the driver’s seat. So, who has ABC cherry picked for the chance at true love with this gorgeous soccer player? Let’s meet all 27 ladies, analyze their poorly edited ABC questionnaires, and make some predictions about the coming season…

Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” has been suspended from the show indefinitely after an interview in GQ in which he compared gays to “terrorists and drunks” and implied homosexuality is the same thing as sleeping with your dog.
A&E released a statement distancing themselves from the born-again Christian:
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty.’ His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
But Phil still has at least one supporter. Sarah Palin, who must have been bored this week, came swooping in to defend the reality star. Keep reading »
