“I Am Cait” Focuses On Compassion And Education, Not Drama

A few things were made abundantly clear on last night’s premiere episode of “I Am Cait,” Caitlyn Jenner’s new reality show on E!. While perhaps technically a spinoff, “I Am Cait” is a far more serious and hopefully less scripted reality show than the wildly popular “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” But despite the show&#8217…

“Big Brother” Says Goodbye (For Now?) To Audrey Middleton, The Show’s First Transgender Houseguest

On last night’s live episode of “Big Brother,” Audrey Middleton, the reality show’s first transgender houseguest, was evicted from the house, as had been expected. Prior to the live vote, CBS aired a segment about Audrey’s experience coming out publicly for the first time, and right away, to her fellow houseguests, featuring interviews with Audrey&#8217…

The Slut-Shaming “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe Endured Is What Women Online Deal With Every Day

As per usual, the penultimate episode of this season of “The Bachelorette,” which aired last night, had Kaitlyn Bristowe coming face-to-face with the suitors she sent packing over the course of the season. But it also had her sitting across from host Chris Harrison as he read a series of hateful, slut-shaming tweets (watch above) that had…

And The Next “Bachelor” (Probably) Is…

Rumor has it, once again, the next season of “The Bachelor” will feature the third runner-up from the current season of “The Bachelorette.” So, who got sent home on last night’s episode and is thus going to be handing out roses next season? Spoilers ahead!

Meet Audrey Middleton, “Big Brother”‘s First Transgender Houseguest

Last night was the premiere of my absolute favorite guilty pleasure, “Big Brother.” While I’ve watched every season of the show, the last two summers I made the leap and subscribed to the show’s live feeds, which give you basically 24/7 access to what’s actually happening in the “Big Brother” house, where TK houseguests are locked inside with…

“The Bachelorette” Tries — And Fails! — To Slut-Shame Kaitlyn Bristowe

Since the beginning of the season, ABC has been hyping THE MOST SCANDALOUS episode of “The Bachelorette” EVER, in which Kaitlyn Bristowe has sex with one of her male suitors and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. The previews showed Kaitlyn sobbing about making a terrible mistake, the implication being that her decision to have sex with one of…

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” Crowned A Winner, But Was She The Right One?!

America’s next drag superstar was crowned last night, amidst sequins and glitter and a shirtless, gyrating Pit Crew. The winner was … not who I expected.
After a lackluster season finale that was heavy on the sob story and light on the tea, young upstart Violet Chachki, the queen with the fiercest looks, the shadiest…

Let’s Discuss Tonight’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Finale

Hey squirrelfriends! It’s time for that moment we’ve all been waiting for: the season finale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” What started with 14 queens has been whittled down via fierce competition and lip syncs to the top three. And tonight, Ru will crown either Violet Chachki, Ginger Minj, or Pearl as America’s Next Drag Superstar.

ABC Asked Amy Schumer To Be The Next “Bachelorette,” Better Not Be Kidding

Don’t play with my emotions, ABC! Just a day after Amy Schumer nailed her appearance on “The Bachelorette,” prompting fans to tweet their desire to see the single comedian as the next woman to hand out roses, Robert Mills, the senior vice president for ABC Entertainment, made her an “official” offer.

OK here is the official…

Amy Schumer’s Appearance On “The Bachelorette” Proved That Amy Schumer Should BE “The Bachelorette”

You know what makes “The Bachelorette” infinitely more tolerable? Comedian Amy Schumer, cutting through the bullshit and bringing the laughs. Amy is a hardcore fan of the “Bachelor/Bachelorette” franchise and an admitted fangirl for Kaitlyn Bristowe, who she says she likes more than any other “Bachelorette” in the show’s history. I can’t speak for Amy,…

Who’s Excited For The Most Slut-Shamey Season Of “The Bachelorette” Ever?!

On last night’s second part of “The Bachelorette” premiere, Kaitlyn Bristowe was chosen over Kelly Kapowski Britt Nilsson to continue her journey towards finding a three month relationship, I mean everlasting love. I’m psyched because I genuinely like and relate to Kaitlyn, but after seeing the full preview for what’s ahead, I’m also a little…

Bruce Jenner Reveals He Is Scheduled To Have Gender Reassignment Surgery

There was just so much TV to watch last night — the “Mad Men” finale! A climactic “Game of Thrones”! — that I must admit to not yet watching the first part of the”Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce” special. But I did watch this clip, via TMZ, which shows Bruce Jenner speaking with three…

This season starts off by pitting two “Bachelorette” hopefuls, last season’s Britt (left) and Kaitlyn (right), against each other, with the 25 guys getting to pick who they would like to spend the rest of the season dating.

Hilary Duff Might Share Her Tinder Dates On A Reality Show

When Hilary Duff joined Tinder earlier this week, she seems to have also flipped a cosmic switch (or, you know, tapped the help of her publicist) and is suddenly all over the internet, doing things like magically running into her “Lizzie McGuire” costars and releasing new music videos. Apparently she just can’t let go of that stroke…
