Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” gave viewers a much needed change of scenery — Don Draper and Pete Campbell flew out of Los Angeles to meet with various airline executives in pursuit of new business. But while Pete devoted his time to the task at hand, Draper took off for Palm Springs with a mysterious 21-year-old woman and band of pretentious, bohemian, and decidedly wealthy nomad friends. Don seemed to be incredibly intrigued by the laissez faire attitude of his latest conquest (yes, they did sleep together — so much for Don remaining faithful to his marriage) probably because she lives the kind of responsibility-free life that he kinda, sorta craves. It was fun to see the way L.A. was in the early ’60s, the bright sunshine of the poolside atmosphere a welcome change from the greyness of the Sterling Cooper offices. Also, Don Draper looks hot in sunglasses. Next week, it definitely seems like Don is going on a bit of a mission, taking time off from work to pursue something, or someone — there’s been a lot of questions surrounding what Don’s life was like as Dick Whitman. Might there be a love child out there? Keep reading »
Manhattan’s hottest and most scandal ridden family, “The Darlings”, came back into our lives last night with the season two premiere of “Dirty Sexy Money.” And if last night’s episode was any indication of the drama yet to come, we are surely in for a tantalizing ride.
Opening the episode was family lawyer Nick George (and last week’s Daily Hotness) on his way to his not-such-a-surprise birthday party thrown by the Darlings. The song “Under Pressure” by Queen is playing in the background to signify that Nick is feeling some sort of heat. What else is new? About 10 minutes into his party, after several rounds of awkwardness, the NYPD shows up via helicopters and ground force. The episode now goes to 48 hours earlier. Keep reading »
Josh Schwartz is certainly turning up the heat. The media has been buzzing about the first three episodes of this season’s “Gossip Girl” as the best, but episode four had my best friend and I squealing from shock and awe.
First things first, OMFG Lord Marcus is banging his step mom Lady Catherine? Ew. Seriously, my jaw hit the coffee table — an awesome twist that I never saw coming. And Vanessa, you sly little bitch, intending to catch Nate and Catherine doing the dirty-dirty, but catching that shocker instead…good thing you thought to snap that photo. Keep reading »
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the new 90210 is going to rip off certain aspects of story lines from the old Beverly Hills, 90210. On last night’s episode there were two such instances that were straight up nods to the old Nine-Oh. Read on… Keep reading »
Thank you MTV for finally pulling together two episodes where SOMETHING actually happened on this dang show, and two episodes in a row nonetheless! Let’s start with my favorite quote by our token traitor, Stephanie Pratt. “You broke up with a guy who has a private jet?” Stephanie quips to Lauren. Classic, but as Lauren pointed out, they were still on it weren’t they? Sigh, these kids live the life. Keep reading »
I missed Peggy this week. Our favorite glass ceiling breaker took much of this week’s episode of Mad Men off and the episode, instead, focused on new assistant Jane, Don Draper’s new car (to replace the one he crashed when he was drunk driving with Bobbie Barrett), and Cooper’s new Mark Rothko painting. Needless to say, it was an odd episode. Read on to find out about Jane’s complete and total insubordination and Jimmy Barrett’s big reveal to Betty Draper… Keep reading »
Last night was the premiere of the remake of the greatest teen drama ever made — 90210. Catherine and I immediately started IMing about our impressions the second we got into The Frisky offices this morning — our convo is after the jump, but check out a clip of the show above if you were crazy enough to miss it.

Every week I wonder why it is that I’m still watching and using coveted DVR space for The Hills. I’m sorry, maybe these girls are more interesting in real life, but NOTHING happens on this show. Last night I watched 22 minutes of Lauren deciding that she and Doug should just be friends. Seriously? Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling Cooper works on putting together a new ad campaign for Playtex, centered around every woman have a Jackie (Kennedy) side and a Marilyn (Monroe) side — for the record, according to the boys, Peggy is all Gertrude Stein — Don is in way too deep with Bobbie Barrett. Don is not immune to viewing women through these two lenses as well — while he’s happy to have Bobbie as his whore on the side, when Betty buys a chic new bikini to wear at the pool, Don is quick to demean her as “desperate”. Both sides of Amelia wanted to smack the s–t out of him for that one. Keep reading »
Looks We Hated: Joe’s ugly motorcross look; Keith’s bland, ill-fitting, snooze-fest; Stella’s mismatched separates, shockingly devoid of leath-uh.
Last night’s episode of Project Runway featured the much anticipated return of an actually complicated and innovative challenge. The producers may have thought the drag queen episode was a doozy but dressing a bunch of dudes in pleather and feathers is not that mind-bending. On last night’s episode, however, the designers were hauled off to a car warehouse where they were able to pillage Saturn’s warehouses for car parts to use as materials for their next design. This was definitely an opportunity for some of the designers who think they’re super innovative — ahem, Keith, ahem — to finally prove it with something other than swatches of fringe. Not-so-sadly or surprisingly, Keith couldn’t pull it off. And while his was hardly the only piece of crap to walk down the runway, we were pleasantly surprised by many of the designers’ creations. You heard it here first: Leanne is totally the dark horse who is going to win the whole she-bang. Her garment last night impressed even guest judge Rachel Zoe, who once dared to call herself more influential than Vogue‘s Anna Wintour. Keep reading »
