5 Things I Learned From Last Night’s “Mad Men” Episode

With the merging companies, there is trouble, tension and transition everywhere. Merging clients and jobs, dealing with logistics of job security and office space — the office is in turmoil, and so is everyone’s life around it. And this is all before the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Unlike the MLK Jr. assassination, “Mad Men” chose to put…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: All Aboard The Biscuit Express

The good news is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has been picked up for another season! WOOT! And the bad news is … well, you know the bad news. The season is over and now I have nothing to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I’m almost too sad to write about the “Here Come…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Put Your Bingo Face On

I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode,…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Guess Whose Breath, But Not After Eating Sketti

Ami: I am already anticipating going into a deep depression when this season of “Here Comes Honey Boo” ends. I can feel it coming. And I can’t even bare to think of it. But we still have episodes to discuss and they are still mind-blowing, heart warming and disgusting all at once. I am going…

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: A Very Disturbing Denouement

This season of “Bachelor Pad” atoned for all of its boringness in the finale. Let’s start off light, before I delve into the dark and dirty underbelly where people betray one another and we ponder the ways in which money corrupts human beings. Let’s start with Jamie’s ridiculous Pocahontas outfit. It’s as if she thought…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: Shhh! It’s A Dumpster

I have come to trust in the power of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” I know that each week, it will leave me renewed and invigorated about life, teach me things I never would have known, take me places I never would have travelled … like Shhh! It’s A Wig or the local department store.

“Abby & Brittany” Recap: Please Date Josiah!

I feel like an awful human being saying this, but TLC’s “Abby & Brittany” just isn’t living up to my expectations in terms of answering any of my technical questions. HOW DO THEY POOP? Don’t get me wrong, they are wonderful, inspiring human beings. I enjoyed learning how they drive, watching them ride a Segway,…

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: Ed’s Dream, Our Nightmare

SPOILERS galore! This week’s “Pad” challenge was called “Hanging By A Thread”, a fitting description for my interest in the show. I hate to say this, but “Bachelor Pad” is about as dead to me as Rachel is to Jaclyn after she eliminates her and they are no longer “best friends.” I’m sorry if I…

“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!

June’s Forklift Foot Revealed On “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

As always, the precious moments on last night’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” were bountiful. I was still a little distracted by the discovery that June is the same age as me. It’s going to take me a while to process that. Anyhow, the Boo Boos are showing no signs of slowing down.

The 4 Most Interesting Moments From TLC’s “Abby & Brittany” Premiere

TLC is like my spirit animal cable channel, so my hopes were lofty for “Abby & Brittany,” the new show about 22-year-old identical, conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel. I saw TLC’s special about them way back when they were 16 and getting their driver’s license. Then, I saw some British special filmed when they…

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: T-I-T-I-L-L-A-T-I-N-G Confessions!

Now that all of the interesting contestants have been kicked off “Bachelor Pad,” there are very few ways to keep the viewers watching. A spelling bee and confessions are what the producers opt for. The remaining “Pad” members are happy to oblige, dredging up the best they have to offer in the way of DEEP,…

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: The Great Fall Of Michael

*Spoiler alerts abound! * “Bachelor Pad” producers inadvertently shit on their own show last night by trying to save their villain Chris. Everyone wanted that diabolical douche out of there after last week’s love square fallout, but then the “Pad” gods intervened and ended up sacrificing the only two people who ever say remotely amusing…

9 (More) Things I Learned From “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

Sometimes a show has a great first couple of episodes and fades away as the season continues. The opposite is true of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It just keeps getting better. Amelia thinks Alana will grow up to be the “funniest comedian that ever lived.” I agree. And, here in the office, we’re kicking…

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: Chris Forms A Dangerous Love Square

Forget about love triangles. BORING. Monday night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” involved a love square. How does one even get involved in a love square? Good question. Chris seems to have figured it out. As Sage Stagliano (who’s dubbed himself “coach” of the house) put it, “He’s going around starting lots of little fires i…

“Small Town Security” Recap: God Don’t Make No Junk

I was too traumatized by last night’s “Breaking Bad” to watch “Small Town Security,” so apologies for getting this recap to you late. “Breaking Bad” is so stressful! But “Small Town Security” is like a sweet, soothing salve on the nerves. As long as you can handle all the uncomfortable sex talk.

“Bachelor Pad” Recap: Awks Hookups And Fighting Frenemies

Lots of spoilers alert. There are so many things we could talk about from last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad.” Um, the “Hot Sludge Funday” complete with a “nut sack” and a cherry on top? Who thinks up these challenges and may I offer my services? Maybe a penis car wash would be fun? Or…

Project Runway: And The Finalists Are…

The judges finally revealed on last night’s episode the three designers that will show their collections at Bryant Park. And as I suggested last week, Jerell was unfortunately auf’d. Despite my crush on Jerell, I have to admit that he deserved it. I would have been really embarrassed for him to seriously show his collection,…

Project Runway: The Cop Out

Looks We Liked: Jerell’s Jewel Of A Dress; Leanne’s Soft Stunner

The designers had to create gowns inspired by photos taken at the New York Botanical Garden. There were a lot of tears on the runway this week, so I guess the producers decided to keep the drama flowing because the judges didn’t eliminate…

Project Runway: I’m In Love With Jerell

Looks We Loved (From Left to Right): Jerell’s Pop-ified Kenley; Korto’s Punked-Out Suede

For this week’s challenge, the contestants had to design for each other based on a musical genre. Kenley created a hip-hop outfit for Leanne, who designed a country music outfit for Korto. Korto made a punk-inspired look for Suede. And Suede…
