The First Same-Sex “So You Think You Can Dance” Routine Was Worth The Wait

“So You Think You Can Dance” has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it’s not perfect. Up until last night’s episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex dance partners. But man, while it took the show 11 years, it…

On “Big Brother 16,” Caleb Reynolds’ Unrequited Obsession & The Offensiveness Of Calling Amber Borzotra A “Tease”

Last week, I wrote about Caleb Reynolds’, a houseguest on “Big Brother 16,” and his unrequited romantic obsession with fellow player Amber Borzotra. While the television show has gone out of their way not to draw attention to Caleb’s out of whack fixation on Amber, those fans who subscribe to the 24/7 livefeeds are privy

Aviva Drescher Apparently Throws Her Prosthetic Leg In “RHONY” Season Finale

A lot of crazy shit has gone down on “The Real Housewives,” but no one has ever thrown a body part before. On the season finale of “RHONY,” Aviva Drescher apparently removes her prosthetic leg at Le Cirque — a very fancy restaurant — and hurls it across the restaurant. Table-flipping seems so quaint…

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching “So You Think You Can Dance”

Of all people in the world, my jock-y, mainstream, but also book-nerd boyfriend was the person who got me into watching “So You Think You Can Dance”. When I told him I hadn’t seen it, he scoff-laughed and said, “You’re gonna watch it,” then proceeded to wax poetic about the show and how he wishe…

“Big Brother”‘s Caleb Reynolds Is Disturbingly Obsessed With Fellow Houseguest Amber Borzotra

I tried to resist, but I failed. For the second year in a row, I’ve decided to subscribe to the “Big Brother” livefeeds. The reality show’s 16th season kicked off last week, the livefeeds turned on last Friday, and the drama started almost immediately. The 16 houseguests have barely been living together for 10 days,…

Study: “27 Dresses” And “The Bachelorette” Are Messing With Your Love Life

Researchers have found evidence that watching rom-coms and sitcoms impact our views on love. TV seems to shape our view of reality in every other realm of life, so I’m not exactly shocked it’s also true for romance.

Why Dave Is Still Single, a study by University of Michigan researchers, asked participants how frequently…

6 Photos Of Prince Harry Summarizing How I Feel About Fox’s Cancellation Of “I Wanna Marry Harry”

A TV program in terrible taste, on which a young man who looks nothing like Prince Harry posed as the eligible royal, has been unjustly and unfairly canceled by Fox. Yes, “I Wanna Marry Harry” is dunzo after only a few episodes. Entertainment Weekly reports that as of next week, “Harry” will only be available…

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On “Deadliest Catch”

“Deadliest Catch” is one of my favorite reality shows. I love watching marathons of it when I’m sad or depressed, because nothing makes me feel better about my current life situation than being reminded that it could be worse, and specifically, that I could be in the middle of a 24-hour shift on a tiny…

New Reality Show “Born In The Wild” Depicts Moms Giving Birth In The Forest

Childbirth is a miracle. It’s a miracle that I intend to experience (hypothetically, in the distant future, maybe) with an epidural and as many pain-numbing drugs as they’ll give me.

Some moms-to-be go the other extreme: giving birth outdoors, literally on the floor of the fuckin’ woods, sans a doctor. And because this i…

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: The Most Emotionally Manipulative Date Ever!

There should be some sort of adult lady merit badge for sitting through four hours of “The Bachelorette” in 48 hours. I’m just saying. Let’s review last night’s episode, which featured the most emotionally manipulative date I’ve ever witnessed on this stupid show that I just can’t quit, not to mention an unexpected departure.

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Andi Goes On The Most Embarrassing & Unhinged Dates In “Bachelorette” History

For some reason, ABC has decided that one two-hour episode a week just isn’t enough “Bachelorette.” This week, there are two two-hour episodes of my favorite reality TV dating show, one last night and then another tonight. Yay, four hours of “The Bachelorette” — how did I get so lucky? The good news is, last night’s episode…
