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. The news leaked that she was getting the ax right before the episode aired. So how did they do it? More details after the jump. Keep reading »

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 from the above clip, but the kissing was really jerky. Taylor Momson (Jenny) and Chace Crawford (Nate) try their best to make the kiss look passionate, but it just looks artificial. Maybe because Taylor is 15 and Chace is 23. Keep reading »

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, Jim finally proposes to Pam — who has moved to New York for three months to do a graphic design program — and ol’ waterworks totally got all sniffle-y. Catch the full episode at NBC.com, because it was hilarious. Kelly Kapoor, one of the greatest and funniest characters on TV, did the Master Cleanse and passed out! Keep reading »

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.

  • Men don’t cheat for the sex Just like marriage counselor M. Gary Neuman said on Oprah, men don’t necessarily cheat because they want hot, steamy sex. Mostly, it’s because there’s an emotional disconnect between the two people. Sarabeth’s husband, Michael, didn’t sleep with Sarabeth’s friend Anna because she was hotter than Sarabeth — how good does Bernadette Peters look at 60! — it was because he was afraid to tell her he’d lost his job.

    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 is reportedly developing. Dupre, as you may remember, was the high-priced hooker that took down New York Governor Eliot Spitzer earlier this year. And now it seems she is looking for love and romance…or just more notoriety in the same fashion as A Shot At Love’s Tila Tequila. I guess I’m just totally sick of these celeb-reality stars thinking the American public is dumb enough to believe you can find love under the watchful eye of a production team. And I ask you, what exactly does Dupre have to offer in the ways of love? As far as I know, love has never been a job requirement of prostitution, although perceived romance has. Dupre would better serve society by developing an instructional reality show on how to make copious amounts of money with only a few hours of work. Now that’s a show I’d watch, as long as her techniques were legal. I’ve got student loans, you know. [New York Post] Keep reading »

    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 in love with Snowboarder McGee and Daddy Dopeyface and had a major decision to make. The thing that drives me crazy about this show is that up until the very last second, The Bach is always totally in love with both competitors, but then suddenly, the clouds part and it’s clear who he/she should choose? I mean, if I was the chosen one, I would probably still be a little insecure. Anyway, if you don’t want to know who DeAnna chose and who proposed to her, don’t click to after the jump and don’t watch the video above either… Keep reading »

    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 see a bunch of dudes act like mealy mouthed wimps than to see a bunch of archaic women act like cave girls. Don’t ask me why. But I have been getting harrassed by my coworker Kim and my friend Lesley for not watching this season of The Bachelorette, which they both claim is, like, the best ever. So I kicked my man-friend into the bedroom last night and settled in with a bottle of wine and serious doubts to watch the second to last episode of the show, plus “The Men Tell All” special. And lo and behold, I totally ended up kicking myself for not tuning in sooner. My latent thoughts, after the jump… Keep reading »

    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 with him on his family’s private jet. Has Chuck reformed and gone from date rapist to romantic? Well, I got really excited because I think he and Blair are really cute together, mostly because they’re both so evil, but then things went awry! Chuck’s dad tells him that taking Blair to Tuscany will change everything, and Chuck decides he’s not really ready to commit and leaves Blair to fly alone (well, with some random hot guy), and instead hits on blonde hottie Amelia. I guess some guys never change. Keep reading »

    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 was about to pop the question to Pam — oh, and Angela and Dwight got busted boning on her desk after hours. Exciting stuff! In this clip, Michael talks to Jim about being in love with the new HR Director. Keep reading »

    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 the final two joined them, Ozzy finally got a chance to makeout with Amanda. A lot. Keep reading »
