“I will admit that the day a bigger group of the cast did get together really was amazing. We were in an old set and hearing some of those voices together. I think everyone involved was kind of dumbstruck by it. It really wasn’t supposed to happen in a way; shows don’t ‘come back.’ And this was the moment we realized it had.”
–Mitch Hurwitz, mastermind behind the Greatest Show In History, “Arrested Development,” describes the feeling on the set as the cast reunited to film 10 new episodes that will air exclusively on Netflix. While Hurwitz carefully sidesteps any spoilers (“We have this new JarJar Bluth character so there’s no way anyone will be disappointed”), there are a ton of other fascinating gems in his interview with Vulture, including details about Gob’s Segway and the beyond-exciting revelation that the the show might be coming back for more than 10 episodes. Be still, my Bluth-loving heart! [Vulture]
*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 things — Michael Stagliano and Erica Rose. Your stupid plan backfired, producers. Is there even any reason to watch anymore? Not really. Blakelely can be mildly entertaining at times and Ed is fun to laugh at when he’s drunk. But can they carry a show? HELL NO. After the jump, how karma farted on Michael and shined on Chris … and some interesting moments in between. Keep reading »
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 around the idea that June is a sex positive feminist and doesn’t even know it. Oh, all the things I’m learning from this show. After the jump, some more nuggets of wisdom from last night including FORKLIFT FOOT. Keep reading »
The third season of TLC’s “Strange Sex” is back this Sunday and will include a segment about a man with a breastfeeding fetish. Yep. Jeff is sexually aroused by getting his wife Michelle pregnant and drinking her breast milk. He has been “feeding” off of her for the last year-and-a-half and claims that milk straight from the source cured his erectile dysfunction. (Wait. What!?)
“The first time I breast fed from Michelle, I just latched on and the milk started flowing and it was just such a huge turn on that I had to stop because I would have just finished right then and there,” Jeff confesses. Keep reading »
Regular Frisky readers know that I have a weird obsession with watching cooking shows. I don’t know why. I don’t cook. No one in my family cooks. I like to eat, but I think most people in the world feel the same way. I think chefs are hot and sometimes I watch cooking shows to look for potential dates, but still, that doesn’t entirely explain my obsession. Put me in front of a cooking show, any cooking show, and you’ll find me transfixed.
Cooking show season is officially in full swing, which means I’ve cleared my schedule. At the moment I’m watching “Chopped,” “Master Chef,” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” I’ve also been recommended “Around The World In 80 Plates” and “Food Network Star.” How many cooking shows can I watch at once without being considered crazy? I guess I’ll find out. The most epically trashy of the cooking show premieres was Season 10 of “Hell’s Kitchen” with my favorite chef sex object, Gordon Ramsay. Someday I plan to write “Hell’s Kitchen” erotic fan fiction with Gordon as the dom. It would just be too easy. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. Here are the important things I learned from the episode (spoilers ahead!)… Keep reading »
Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.
“Revenge’s” thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-crosses. Read more …
This week on “Mad Men“‘s “Dark Shadows” episode, Weight Watchers serves as a type of therapy for Betty Francis, who can definitely use it. Boredom, jealousy, and insecurity dominate Betty’s life as a 1960s housewife on her second marriage, and she’s turned to bags of Bugles to pass the time. Now determined to lose the weight, the former model turns to a new diet plan gaining popularity with women like her, Weight Watchers. Considering Betty’s mother-in-law already tried to push diet pills on her, which contained amphetamines at the time, the group meetings are the responsible approach to weight loss for Betty Francis.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Whitney Cummings landed her own E! talk show titled, “Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings.” The show will be a weekly half-hour talk show appearing with “The Soup” on Wednesdays. Whitney and sidekick Julian McCullough will host guests, crack jokes and comment on pop culture. I’m not surprised that she landed her own talk show, but other people seem to be. Like her work or not, the girl is having a moment right now.
What’s disheartening are the blogsphere’s reactions to the news. Headlines include: “Whitney Cummings Gets the Late-Night E! Talk Show of Your Nightmares” and “Whitney Cummings Getting A Talk Show, So You Can Hear More Of What Whitney Cummings Thinks About Things.” Keep reading »
Pauly D and his crew aren’t afraid of a little pampering. Last night on the new MTV reality series, “The Pauly D Project,” Pauly D, Jerry and Biggie skipped the GTL and did a little MMW (manicures, massage, (nose hair) waxing) instead. Yes, you heard me right. They let estheticians put hot wax in their nostrils and rip the nose hair out. Gross. I didn’t even know you could get your nose waxed. What’s wrong with those nose hair trimmers? Is that not sufficient now when it comes to nasal grooming? [Huffington Post]
This week, Claire Danes turned 33! While the birthday girl is all grown up these days as the star of Homeland and wife to hot actor Hugh Dancy, we will always remember Claire as the angsty teen heroine of “My So-Called Life,” Angela Chase. As one of our favorite ’90s starlets, Claire’s portrayal of Angela gave us someone we could relate to growing up. She went through the same friend dramas, family conflict, and, of, course, young love ups and downs we faced in those terrible in-between years of high school. So in honor of Claire’s birthday, we’ve got the best love, sex, and dating musings from Angela on “My So-Called Life.” Read more …
