What a hot mess. No, I’m not talking about last night’s “Jersey Shore” episode — I’m talking about Snooki. The gang took a weekend trip to Riccione; it’s a beach town that’s supposed to be the Seaside Heights of Italy, only it’s a million times classier. Most of the house wants to enjoy the beach and the beautiful weather. Snooki and Deena, though, plunged face-first into daytime drinking and exhibitionistic foolishness with such enthusiasm that they pissed off the other roommates before it was even dark out. I don’t blame them! Babysitting drunk meatballs is not how I’d want to spend my vacation, either.
I think I’m over Snooki. Like, over. Every irresponsible and crappy thing she does isn’t her fault and she doesn’t deserve. Talk about entitlement. She’s like a little orange Lindsay Lohan. Find out more about why I’m finished, after the jump: Keep reading »
Why, oh why, is “America’s Next Top Model” so compelling? Is it because the modeling industry is really so glorious that we’re thrilled by the idea of a normal girl getting a shot at it? Or is it that we just like to see pretty girls pushed to their breaking point via having their head shaved, being harnessed high in the air, or having to walk the runway with a roach? I’m not exacted sure, but since there have been 16 cycles of the show, with about 12 episodes a piece, I have invested roughly 192 hours into this conceit over the years. And that doesn’t count reruns, which I won’t lie, happens anytime a marathons is on. All this is to say, you better believe I will be glued to my seat for cycle 17, the “All-Stars” season. The show premiered last night and it was as good as I’d hoped. After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moments of the episode. Keep reading »
Can I just say that, for the record, I think it was kind of tacky of HBO to air the season finale of “True Blood” on 9/11? I’m not trying to say that yesterday should have been devoid of entertainment, but after an emotional day of watching the memorial service and television docs that recalled the violence of 2001, the last thing I was in the mood for was gore. Just sayin’—could HBO not have waited until next week to air the finale? Or at least started the season a week earlier? Feels like such a strange decision.
That said, last night’s episode was one of the best in a long time. After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF moments. Keep reading »
Well. I do not like this Snooki/Jionni relationship one bit. Who dares call Snooki a “bitch” and say she’s embarrassing? Like that’s a bad thing? Of course she’s embarrassing! She’s Snooki. And I kinda love how the roommates all closed ranks to get her to realize that Jionni is a putz that doesn’t deserve her. It was a brief, fleeting moment showing that even if they’re actually good people deep inside. (Sometimes. A little bit.)

Behold, my thoughts on Sunday night’s “True Blood.” Why so late, you ask? Well, the long weekend got a little wonky on me. Because Sunday night felt like Saturday, I forgot to watch it and next thing I knew it was Monday and I was behind on “Bachelor Pad.” But, last night, I finally caught up with Sookie, Eric and the crew. And overall, I felt a little … let down.
After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moments of this week’s episode. I can’t believe that this Sunday brings the finale. It really feels like this should only be the halfway mark. Keep reading »

Three day weekends are amazing. And also, a little disorienting. Last night, I went about my merry way thinking it was Sunday until about 11 p.m., when I remembered that it was actually Monday and “Bachelor Pad” was already in progress. I stayed up late to watch the whole thing and, boy, was I happy that I did. Finally, some movement on the Blake-Holly-Michael love triangle! And a little more action in the Michelle/Graham department!
After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF moments from last night’s episode. Of course, there is a lot more under “Bad” and “WTF” than “Good.” But that’s just how “Bachelor Pad” goes. Keep reading »
