“Top Chef” + “The Bachelorette” = The Reality Show Of My Dreams

Between watching “Chopped,” “Top Chef,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Master Chef” and “Kitchen Nightmares,” I didn’t think there was time for another cooking show on my lineup. But when your dream reality show concept comes along, you make time. NBC is creating a new show “that brings together everyone’s two favorite things: food and love.” Indeed! The…

Predict The Winner Of The New Season Of “Celebrity Apprentice”

Last season, “Celebrity Apprentice” was highly, highly entertaining. We met Gary Busey’s penis, Big Wednesday, suffered through Nene’s blow out with Star Jones and hid under our couches during Meatloaf’s fit of rage. Naturally, my expectations are above and beyond for the latest batch of “Apprentice” hopefuls (read as: random group of C and D-lister…

11 Reality Stars With Shady Pasts

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…

10 Changes “The Bachelor” Franchise Needs To Make If They Want Us To Take Them Seriously

Am I really about to get involved in the latest season of “The Bachelorette” with Ashley Hebert, a girl who in my estimation, is not really ready to settle down? I say this because at the end of last season, when she and Brad Womack were getting down to brass tacks, she hadn’t even considered

Joe Gorga: The New Star Of “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”

I was scared to watch the new season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” sans Danielle Staub. I just didn’t think it could possibly be any fun without her and her delusional paranoia. Man, was I wrong. The first episode, which included a “West Side Story” style rumble at a Christening, made…

Explore Uncharted Waters With Audrina Patridge

This promo for Audrina Patridge’s new VH1 reality show, “Audrina,” which premieres April 17, is absolutely captivating. I just lost five brain cells, but I can’t wait to spend lots of time watching Audrina swim and tan her way through her complicated Orange County existence. Oh, and I hope her drunk mother, Lynn, get…

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.

“Genuine Ken” Looks Scary Bad

I love me some bad reality television, but, as we suspected when it was announced, the new Hulu series “Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend” is just too bad. Let’s recap the trailer here, shall we? Whitney Port hosts as eight Ken-testants (personally I’m routing for Compassionate Ken) compete in weekly…

Will You Watch Bravo’s “Launch My Line”?

Anyone excited for Bravo’s new series, “Launch My Line”? It may not be “Project Runway,” but there is something verrrrry familiar about it. Popwatch reports: “This time, 20 people who are already successful in different lines of work — music mogul! CEO! — need only exhibit a ‘passion for fashion’ in order to…

Scraping The Bottom Of The Reality Show Barrel

Are they just giving away reality shows these days? Long-forgotten musicians, football players no one really cares about, an E! network host?! These people are not worthy of the average citizen’s 15 minutes, let alone a production company’s money. Seriously, TV executives are looking to the end of the F-list to find subjects for their…

The Sorry State Of Reality Love Shows

You know how there’s that certain type of guy you want to dramatically douse in a glass of red wine, just to wipe the smug look off his face for a split-second? That’s how I felt last night watching Wes Hayden’s behavior on “The Bachelorette,” when he realized Jillian Harris was on to his cheating,…
