Gather ’round children and let me tell you a ghost story that will scare the ooo out of you. It’s about the Fart Ghost — a ghost that you smell before it scares you and it likes scaring people really bad. Sometimes the Fart Ghost farts … mayonnaise. BWAHAHAHAHA!
Oh yes, the return… READ MORE »
Oh, feminism, what a tangled web you weave! How could I have missed “Wives With Beehives,” a program that aired last Thursday night on TLC (of course), about couples who purposefully live a 1950s lifestyle? The husbands go off to work, carrying their lunch in a pail, natch, while the wives stay at their kitsch-ed… READ MORE »
Pray Tell is The Frisky’s new biweekly column about the intersection of religion and women’s lives.
The third season of the TLC series “Sister Wives” premiered this week. The show is about the Brown family — Kody, and his wives Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn. They have 17 kids, including three from Robyn’s… READ MORE »
Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them.
In this instance, the adjective “extreme” when used in conjunction with the word “cougar” means that there is a 20-year… READ MORE »
Well, this is weird: “Long Island Medium” Theresa Caputo wandered into a New York City skate shop on last night’s episode and channeled skateboarding legend — and “Kids” star — Harold Hunter. Hunter, a controversial figure in the downtown scene (who died in 2006), supposedly wanted to let the dudes in Wampum Skate Shop know… READ MORE »
The good news is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has been picked up for another season! WOOT! And the bad news is … well, you know the bad news. The season is over and now I have nothing to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I’m almost too sad to write about the “Here Comes… READ MORE »
We need to talk about the upcoming TLC documentary, “Half-Ton Killer.” If you’ve seen TLC’s other “Half-Ton” docs (“Half-Ton Mom,” “Half-Ton Teen,” etc.), this is a different beast. Yes, Mayra Rosales does weigh a half-ton. Actually she weighs 1,100 pounds and is considered one of the heaviest women in the world. But this is not… READ MORE »
I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode,… READ MORE »
Ami: I am already anticipating going into a deep depression when this season of “Here Comes Honey Boo” ends. I can feel it coming. And I can’t even bare to think of it. But we still have episodes to discuss and they are still mind-blowing, heart warming and disgusting all at once. I am going… READ MORE »
So here’s a nice cliched situation for you on this Monday morning. Anna Shannon, the oldest sister of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” breakout star, Alana Thompson, has a one month old named Kaitlyn and apparently paternity is an issue. Anna’s ex-boyfriend strongly believes that he’s the daddy but the hillbilly family is not only… READ MORE »
I have come to trust in the power of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” I know that each week, it will leave me renewed and invigorated about life, teach me things I never would have known, take me places I never would have travelled … like Shhh! It’s A Wig or the local department store. READ MORE »
I feel like an awful human being saying this, but TLC’s “Abby & Brittany” just isn’t living up to my expectations in terms of answering any of my technical questions. HOW DO THEY POOP? Don’t get me wrong, they are wonderful, inspiring human beings. I enjoyed learning how they drive, watching them ride a Segway,… READ MORE »
Do you need another way to waste time today? I think you do. And should it involve “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?” I think it should. I still haven’t figured out the formula for how the Boo Boos come up with their nicknames, but TLC has applied the top secret algorithm to their Honey Boo… READ MORE »
As always, the precious moments on last night’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” were bountiful. I was still a little distracted by the discovery that June is the same age as me. It’s going to take me a while to process that. Anyhow, the Boo Boos are showing no signs of slowing down. READ MORE »
As we know from last week’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” (and the ensuing photographs floating around the interwebs), Chickadee pushed baby Kaitlin out of her biscuit. According to People, five-week-old Kaitlyn, born on July 26, has “four fingers and two thumbs on the right hand.”
In response to the rumors… READ MORE »
TLC is like my spirit animal cable channel, so my hopes were lofty for “Abby & Brittany,” the new show about 22-year-old identical, conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel. I saw TLC’s special about them way back when they were 16 and getting their driver’s license. Then, I saw some British special filmed when they… READ MORE »
