Coming Soon: Margaret Cho’s New Late-Night TLC Show “All About Sex”

Coming Soon: Margaret Cho's New Late-Night TLC Show "All About Sex"

It’s happening! TLC has approved a late-night show hosted by crude (and super funny) comedienne Margaret Cho called “All About Sex.” The first episode will air January 10, and it (appropriately) comes on just after “Sex Sent Me To The ER.” Thank goodness for DVR, because as much as I would love to stay up until 11pm to watch, I plan on being in REM stage by then.

TLC’s Chilli Reflects On Infidelity & The Group’s 1994 Hit, “Creep,”

QUOTABLE
"If he knew the things I did, he couldn't handle it..."

“I think when we first came out, it was very bold of us to have a song called ‘Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg’ with [the lyrics] ‘Two inches or a yard, rock hard or if it’s sagging’.’” People totally understood what type of group we were. To sing a song like ‘Creep’ wouldn’t be surprising from us. … A lot of our songs are definitely from a woman’s perspective. Guys cheat all the time — and we weren’t trying to promote infidelity — but I’ll cheat because I’m not getting the attention that I need. I’m sure a lot of guys were like, ‘Dang!’ But I think the track was so cool, and with the routine from the video, you almost forget about what we were saying and just sing along.”

Our friends over at Idolator have put together an awesome feature ranking the 50 best songs of 1994 and have done new interviews with the artists who made the top five, including Chilli from TLC, who talked about the site’s #2 pick, “Creep.” It may be hard to remember now, but in 1994, “Creep” was actually pretty controversial, as it basically gave female fans the thumbs up to cheat on their man if he’s cheated on them. “I’ll never leave him down, though I might mess around. It’s only ‘cause I need some affection,” T-Boz sings on the track. But as Chilli reminds us, TLC had long been pushing the envelope, especially when it came to female sexuality and relationships. “Creep” is hannnnnds downnnn one of my favorite songs ever and goddamn did I love that video. I still want bright-colored silk pajamas. Anyway, check out the rest of the interview, not to mention all of Idolator’s rankings at the link! [Idolator]

TLC Slutshames Rihanna, Rihanna Doesn’t GAF

  • In an interview in Australia, TLC — the girl group, not the TV channel — slammed Rihanna for wearing revealing clothes, most recently at the CFDA Awards. “Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked,” said T-Boz. “It’s easy to sell sex.” And Rihanna? Well, she gave ZERO fucks about it. Her Twitter responses were pretty amazing. [Celebuzz]

Can A Doll Really Be Your Soul Mate?

Getting to the heart of why I continue to be riveted by TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” (I know I said I would take a break after the dirty diaper sucker, but I just can’t!), it makes me ask questions I otherwise would never think to wonder about.

And I do have many questions after seeing the latest episode featuring 48-year-old Cat, a woman who is in a relationship with a plastic doll named Volo.

“He’s my best friend, he’s my soul mate. Some people meditate, some people take Xanax, I have Volo,” explains Cat. A very bold assertion indeed. Keep reading »

“My Strange Addiction” Tackles Dirty Diaper-Sucking

Pee drinker? Whatever. TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” can pack it up and go home after last night’s episode featuring Keyshia, a woman who is addicted to smelling and chewing on DIRTY diapers. I mean, at least the lady who drank pee was drinking her own pee. Twenty-two-year-old Keyshia is sneaking into her friend Kim’s house at all hours of the day and night and pilfering pee-soaked diapers off her babies’ bodies.

“It’s very annoying because she doesn’t care what time it is,” Kim says. “She’ll wake my baby up to take the diaper that’s on the baby.” Keep reading »

You can hear Mama June use her very original euphemisms as she gives the girls a talk about the birds and the bees on tonight’s season premiere of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” If it’s unclear, the fruit loop is part of the biscuit, which is a part of the woman’s “privatal area.” It’s called a fruit loop because “guys go loopy over it.” Obviously.
