Romance On TV: Grey’s Anatomy Sets Up Its Lesbian Romance For Failure

Last night on “Grey’s Anatomy” we finally got to see how ABC execs decided to cut out Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) and her lesbian love storyline. There was much backlash and gossip regarding the unfair decision to give Erica the boot because people and network execurives seemed “uncomfortable” with her same sex relationship.

Romance On TV: Gossip Girl’s Awkward Kiss

On last night’s “Gossip Girl,” Jenny started hanging out with a crowd that dances in their underwear while being photographed — scandalous! Nate was acting like an overprotective older brother until Jenny laid one on him and the two started making out hard-core on the sidewalk. I’m not sure whether you can tell…

Romance On TV: Jim Proposes To Pam For Real This Time On “The Office”

Oh damn you, “The Office”. Here I thought I had made it past the point where half-hour long comedies would make me cry. But last night’s Season 5 premiere episode of “The Office” was an hour long, so maybe that’s why it’ll just be an exception to the rule. In the clip above,…

Romance On TV: Grey’s Anatomy Explains Why Men Cheat

Last night’s season premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” was two hours long, so there was a lot of time for things to happen. But really, the episode can be summed up in a few nuggets of wisdom, including the one provided by Dr. Alex Karev in the above clip.

Former Call-Girl Ashley Dupre Looks for Love and More Fame

I’m a self-described reality TV junkie. I watch it all, including Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, America’s Next Top Model and I’ve recently taken up a new addiction to VH1’s I Love Money. But I have to say I’m less than excited about the reality show Ashley Dupre i…

Romance On TV + Poll: The Bachelorette Picks Her Man

Oh, The Bachelorette. How I regret not watching you from the first episode. Last night was the finale and boy, was is it a doozy. Jeremy returned! To rather sadly beg for DeAnna back, mind you, but he was there and delightfully less Patrick Bateman-esque. But it wasn’t enough, because DeAnna was MORE…

Romance On TV: The Bachelorette Narrows Down To The Final Two, Plus The Men Tell All

So I haven’t been watching The Bachelorette all season, which may come as a surprise, but the truth is, I never find The Bachelorette as entertaining as The Bach because the men are never up to my attractiveness standards (which are high for reality TV) and I find it far more mortifying to…

Romance On TV: Chuck Can’t Handle Love

Last night’s season finale of Gossip Girl was a spectacle, and one of the more interesting plot lines was the Blair/Chuck romance. Basically, Chuck admits (to Nate) that he’s in love with Blair. He makes this sappy toast at his father and Lily’s wedding, and then he invites Blair to go to Tuscany…

Romance On TV: Jim Advises Michael On Office Romances

A lot happened on last night’s season finale of The Office: Toby had his goodbye party, Michael “fell in love” with his replacement (who happens to be his own female equivalent), but found out his ex, Jan, was pregnant with a sperm donor’s baby, and Andy proposed to Angela just as Jim wa…

Romance On TV: Survivor’s Ozzy & Amanda Make Up For Lost Time

So after the final tribal council is filmed, the Survivor final two join the other castaways at Ponderosa, the location where they all have to hide out until the show is finished and they head home. CBS filmed a lot of the action this season at Ponderosa and posted the footage online. After…

Romance On TV: The Bach Proposes To His Monkey

No, seriously, that’s what Matt, The Bachelor, calls Shayne. Do I suck for thinking that’s kind of cute? Anyway, for once in the entire history of The Bach, I was actually surprised by the finale. Chelsea is the kind of girl who ALWAYS wins this show — the sweet, best friend-type with whom…

Romance On TV: Ozzy Tells Amanda He Wuvs Her On The Survivor Finale

Why am I such a sucker for reality TV romances? Aside from Jim and Pam on The Office, most romantic TV story lines don’t penetrate my cold heart, but for some reason, when love blooms on reality TV, I turn to mush. On last night’s Survivor: Micronesia finale, Ozzy declared his love for…

Romance On TV: Being Gay Is So Not Cool On The Upper East Side

Gossip Girl delved into major Melrose Place territory when (SPOILER ALERT!!!) it was revealed, kind of, sort of, that Serena may have killed someone and that’s what evil Georgina is holding over her head. Whatever. The reason to watch last night was to finally see, once and for all, which character was going…

Romance On TV: The Bachelor’s Women Tell All

Let me assure you, 99.9% of the reason I watch The Bachelor is for the pre-season finale episode, “The Women Tell All”. Undoubtedly, the batsh*t crazy ones have already been sent packing and make the return on this most glorious of episodes, and this season was no exception. Stacy was back! But she…

Romance On TV: Lauren And Stephen Make Bedroom Eyes, But Not Much Else

Isn’t it funny how some things never change? Stephen Colletti is one of those things. He still chews gum like a lazy, chill surfer bro, he still talks in broken slang, and he still looks like he’s 14. An adorable, sexy 14, but still…he’s 23. Anyway, Stephen tooks LC to dinner and they…

Romance On TV: Shayne Teaches The Bachelor How To Movie Kiss

Last night The Bach took the remaining three women to Barbados for individual dates and time in the “Fantasy Suite”. Chances are, they all probably has sex with him, but in the end, Blahmanda wasn’t good enough and was sent packing. KNEW IT! Shayne and Chelsea remain. I suspect that the Bach really…

Romance On TV: Justin Bobby Knows The Hills Is Sexless Without Him

If there was ever any question why Justin Bobby could invoke such loin burning despite an overwhelming douchiness, it was eradicated last night. Returning to The Hills, undoubtedly because his 15 minutes were up, JB made the usual, wink-and-smile sexy impression. God help, Audrina, God help us all!

Romance On TV: Jim Plans To Propose To Pam On The Office

Watching The Office simultaneously thrills and upsets my inner romantic, because I sort of think that Pam and Jim are way cuter than me and my fiance. Seriously. They are totally cuter than your relationship too, just face it. I mean, I know they are fiction, but nothing makes me more squealey tha…

Romance On TV: Nice Knowing You Marshanna!

Last night, The Bach said sayonara to Marshanna, opting out of meeting the bachelorette’s Brooklyn-based family in favor of Noelle (the red-head), Shayne (Lorenzo Lamas’ bleached blond daughter), Chelsea (“the best friend”-type), and some brown haired girl we swear we’ve never noticed before. Robin, the girl everyone hated, also got dissed last night,…

Romance On TV: The Hills’ Spencer Tugs At Our Heart Strings

Something weird happened last night. I found myself feeling sorry for Spencer as I watched The Hills. Heidi was out on a totally contrived girls night out (GNO!), when Spence showed up by himself at the club and proceeded to get himself a drink and chat with people — including women. Heidi freaked out about…
