It’s a big week on the boob tube—that is, if your retinas aren’t totally burned out from watching the Oscars. This week, we’ve got the series premieres of “High Society” (Wednesday, 9:30 p.m., The CW), Tinsley Mortimer’s reality show, and the awesome new dating show “First Love, Second Chance” (Wednesday, 10 p.m., TV Land). And here are some other things you’ll want to watch, from Jason and Molly’s wedding to the return of “Celebrity Apprentice,” with the best cast ever. Oh, and a little “Gossip Girl” thrown in for fun.

Where did “The Bachelor” Jake Pavelka take Vienna Giarardi out for their first date in the world where the rest of us live, otherwise known as “reality”? Find out — and watch the video! [Also, nice mock turtleneck, douche. -- Editor Amelia] [TMZ] Keep reading »
Jake Pavelka comes off as pretty much the most genuine guy on the planet. But one woman, who’s keeping her name under wraps, says that he’s a liar, liar, pants on fire. She claims that she and Jake were together when he left to film “The Bachelor.” She says that, while Jake claims his life’s passion is flying planes, he really wants to be an actor and was hoping to forward his career by doing the show. The day after Jake returned from filming, she says he called her and said he still loved her. He also said that the women on the show, including Vienna Girardi, meant nothing to him and that he was forced by the producers to propose. Radar has the first interview with this woman. “When you get down on one knee and propose marriage to someone, I take that very seriously,” she says. “The fact that he did that exclusively because he was instructed to do that, it disappoints me so much.” Keep reading »
Every Wednesday, the tabloids bring tragedy, intrigue, and lust into our lives. It’s kind of like modern-day soap operas, only instead of fictional story lines or made-up characters, they’ve cast celebrities you already know and love and pretend that it’s all 100 percent true. And since reality television has taken over for scripted drama, but real life is kinda boring, writers are forced to cook up dynamic story lines, and the line between what’s real and what’s fake is increasingly blurry. I’m not sure if gifting you with the most important stories is helping or hindering in our inevitable demise, but we are all just part of the system. So enjoy the tabs while you can. After the jump, this week’s big stories.

I actually don’t mean that. That headline wrote itself, I swear! I had no choice. [New York City, 3/1/10] Keep reading »
You’ve definitely already heard by now that Jake Pavelka proposed to Vienna Girardi on “The Bachelor” last night. Which wasn’t really surprising, but was certainly disappointing for those under the illusion that reality TV shows promising true love have any intention of delivering such. I suspect this will be drawn out for at least another three specials, leading to Jake ending up with Ali Fedotowsky, who’ll inevitably pick the wrong guy on “The Bachelorette.” [Reality TV World]
Vienna can now join a relatively long line of reality-show-winning villains who managed to mean their way to the top, much to viewers’ dismay. Keep reading »
