7 Things I Learned From The Season Premiere Of “Hell’s Kitchen”

Gordon's Lessons
8 life lessons Ami learned from Gordon Ramsay. Read More »

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 »

TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

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 …

The Rise Of Weight Watchers In The 1960′s

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]

My So-Called Love Life: Angela Chase On Sex And Dating

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 …
