Meet The Cast Of “The Joe Schmo Show”!

We’re suckers for a reality show, as you may have noticed, and it doesn’t take much convincing to get us to clear space in our DVR schedule for a new one. This time around, we’ve saved a coveted spot for Spike’s “The Joe Schmo Show,” about an unsuspecting regular dude who’s been put in a…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Sean Lowe, AKA Bachelor Bronze, Meets His Matches Including A Girl With One Arm, Three Women Of Color & A Familiar Face From A Previous Season

It’s a new year. You know what that means — it’s time for another season of everyone’s favorite sadly embarrassing dating show, “The Bachelor”! I took a wee bit of a hiatus from “Bach”-snarking last season, because I literally could not muster up one single solitary fuck about “Bachelorette” Emily. So boring, and from what…

The Reality TV Wedding Curse: What Happened To 14 Couples That Married On TV?

Over the holiday weekend, “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel announced that she and husband Jason Hoppy were separating. Frankel met Hoppy while filming “Housewives,” and the pair were treated to two Bravo spinoffs about their relationship: “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After,” which chronicled their wedding and marriage and the birth…

Meet The 24 Faces Of New Modeling Competition Show “The Face”

Admit it: “America’s Next Top Model” has gotten stale over the last five zillion “cycles.” As much as we love Tyra there’s only so much of her histrionics and ridiculous, over-the-top photoshoots (Be a bear! Pose with a tarantula! In the snow!) we can take. And the Oxygen network is banking on that, by introducing…

4 Reasons Why I Am Moving To The UK For Their Reality Television

Disclaimer: I am going to be writing about my recent trip to Paris and London A LOT over the next week or so. I know that it can be annoying when a person brags about their AMAZING vacation because you’re like “Fuck off, I am trapped at my cubicle and don’t give a shit about…

“Extreme Cougar Wives” … TLC Is Going There

Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them.
In this instance, the adjective “extreme” when used in conjunction with the word “cougar” means that there is a 20-year or larger…

Phaedra Parks Is Now Available For Pet Funerals

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is back, minus Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton, plus Kenya Moore and Porsha Willams-Stewart. Don’t try to do the math, it still equals all the drama one could ever hope for.

The teaser at the beginning is like whoa. Apollo might be cheating with one of the new…

Victoria On “America’s Next Top Model” And The Scourge Of Faux Concern

Every reality show competition has its oddball and Victoria on “America’s Next Top Model” fits it to a ‘T.’ She was homeschooled, attends online schooling at uber-religious Liberty University, and when she “gets in character” she over-acts during all her photoshoots … like in the most recent episode when she spat at the photographer. Victoria…

How Reality TV Is Like Dating In Your Twenties

“What is this? It looks like you’ve got a bikini wax here!” That was Gordon Ramsay being witheringly British to me, in front of other people. “Nothing puts you off like finding pubes on your plate.” He handed me the oily fennel fronds I had thrown down at the last minute as I stood… / October 20, 2012

If Teresa Giudice Ignores Latest Joe Giudice Cheating Rumors, She’s Insane

Sunday night can’t come soon enough. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion part three is going to be, to use this year’s most over-used word, EPIC. Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice are going to be screaming at one another about hurting “Mommy and Daddy” and Jaqueline’s going to intervene at the exact wrong moment. Good god, I can’t wait.
Since we…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Unlikely Reality TV Heroines

There are some who think there is no value in reality TV, but I dare those haters to say as much come Halloween, when these stars of the small screen are the first people we think of as costume inspirations. While you could certain recycle last year’s Courtney Stodden or “Toddlers & Tiaras” costumes, why not consider dressing u…

The 5 Most Explosive Moments (So Far!) From “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Reunion

The fourth season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” seemed to go on forever — and it was filmed forever ago too. The cast was actually filming this season of the show when they appeared together to film last season’s reunion show; in fact, the reason why Jacqueline Laurita skipped last season’s reunion show…

“Gallery Girls” Recap: Art Basel Dreams And Champagne Nightmares

The nightmare calvary rolls on with the latest installment of “Gallery Girls.” This week is part two of the girls’ decimation of Art Basel Miami, an art scene wankfest set amongst the palm trees and poolsides of Florida. Above, Amelia and Greg from Hyper Vocal discuss their reactions to the episode, which I shall reca…

“Gallery Girls” VIDEO Recap: Art Basel Has Never Been So Bitchy!

This week, instead of our usual recap of Bravo’s “Horrible Slags Who Pretend To Care About Art,” I mean “Gallery Girls,” I’ve teamed up with HyperVocal’s dashingly handsome Greg Seals for a Skype video recap of last night’s episode. Watch Greg and I break down Chantal’s three evil personalities, wax philosophical about Eli Klein’s possible/probable…

8 Reality TV Stars With Drug Problems

We were totally shocked when we saw former “America’s Next Top Model” contest Jael Strauss — who’d appeared on Cycle 8 of the series — would be appearing on a “Dr. Phil” episode devoted to her drug abuse. Since appearing on the series six years ago, Jael’s life has taken a severely downward slide. She’s been addicted to meth,…

“Gallery Girls” Recap: The Three Bs — Bitches, Breakdowns & Breakups

On this episode of “Fancy White Bitches Behaving Badly,” er, “Gallery Girls,” we have a birthday, a breakdown and a frenemy breakup.

Maggie’s birthday is coming up and while she wants to go bowling, her friend Chris (who is still wearing Kefiyahs in 2012, how trendy) tells her that’s “trashy.” Shut up, Chris!

What Is “The Snooki Formula”? A Casting Agent Explains

“Start with a polarizing stereotype, saturate with unapologetic flaws, and then add in a dash of humanity for good measure. Snooki is this party girl with tons and tons of makeup and she’s loud and obnoxious. But then she cries and calls her mom or gets pregnant or something and then you find yourself kind of…

The Soapbox: In Defense Of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

It took me all of 10 seconds to fall madly in love with “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the “Toddlers and Tiaras” spin-off about Alana Thompson, the 6-year-old pageant hopeful known for her one-liners and love of Go-Go-Juice, and her self-described redneck family. While I was already enamored with Alana after seeing her on “Toddler…

5 Reasons You’re Going To Love “Gallery Girls”

I’ll admit it. I was pretty skeptical of Bravo’s newest reality confection, “Gallery Girls.” Although I do love a good “Real Housewife” or two, it’s not exactly life-changing television. But “Gallery Girls” surprised me, after watching the pilot and fourth episode. The show follows seven girls, all trying to make their own way through the NYC art…

6 Important Things I Learned From The Premiere Of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

I want to climb into the womb of “TLC” and live there forever. The network really, really gets it. Um, did anyone see the preview for “Abby & Brittany,” the new reality show about the conjoined twins? Holy crap, TLC. I bow down. Anyhow, last night’s two-episode premiere of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” wa…
