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 »
Move over “Duck Dynasty” and make room for the Tuck Dynasty. “Duck Dynasty”‘s 28 percent dive in viewership during the season five premiere this week proves that at least three million people are not gonna stand for Phil Robertson’s offensive comments about bestiality, gay sex and statutory rape. In other words, that’s three million more people who can become “RuPaul’s Drag Race” fans. The new season premieres February 24th. WERK, squirrelfriends. [WOW]
It might seem kind of an odd time and place, but next week the BBC will be airing a half-hour special on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”! Read more on The Mary Sue …
Last night was John Oliver’s last episode on “The Daily Show” as he gears up to host an HBO comedy series next year. He spent over seven years with the show, and even stepped in as host this summer. Jon Stewart refreshed audiences on some of Oliver’s best moments and made for a teary farewell. I couldn’t watch it without tearing up myself. Best of luck, John! [NYMag.com]
During a talk about the AIDS epidemic at New York’s 92 Y, actor Alan Cumming slammed HBO’s “Girls” for showing far too much unprotected sex.
“We’ve got to try and stop this cavalier attitude that [the AIDS epidemic] in the past. It’s not,” said Cumming.
Naturally, The Daily Mail, took Cumming’s comment as an invitation to map out EVERY sex scene in the series thus far, focusing on whether or not the characters used condoms. The prognosis? Keep reading »

Sorry Carrie Underwood, but if the Von Trapp family had their way, you would not have been singing from the mountain tops. Carrie Underwood has taken a lot of hits for her starring role in the television remake of “The Sound Of Music”. The family says they wanted Anne Hathaway to portray Maria, especially after her Oscar-winning turn in “Les Miserables”. So what happened? Read more on Celebuzz…
TODAY IS MY CHRISTMAS.
Two of my all-time favorite things, Carrie Underwood and “The Sound of Music,” are colliding tonight for a live performance on NBC, where my homegirl will be playing the ever-flawless Maria von Trapp. So, naturally my entire day today will consist of hardcore fangirling.
Let this be a warning: If anyone tries to reach me from approximately 8 to 11:30 p.m, you will be unsuccessful, because I will be happily live tweeting through every yodel, every song and every one of Captain von Trapp’s whistles. Join me! Keep reading »
There are certain things that you miss when you don’t have cable for more than a decade of your life. Like, how the whole “On Demand” thing works. (WHUT? You can watch shows after they’ve aired?!) Until I started curling up with my boyfriend’s Time Warner Cable remote, I had no idea that all “murder porn” as they call it on “South Park” had migrated to its own channel. (Sorry if I’m like, 12 years late with this news, like I said, I didn’t have cable.Please forgive me.) Since I prefer not to use the words “murder” and “porn” in the same sentence, I can more accurately describe the ID lineup as all “true crime” stories ALL THE TIME. Or as the network more eloquently puts it: ” Investigation Discovery gives you insight into true stories that piece together puzzles of human nature.”
You’ve got everything from your “Datelines” and “20/20′s” to your fictionalized, real crime series. The acting is soooo bad, but often the story lines are more believable than TV crime shows (even when they’re ripped from the headlines) because they are REAL. If you’re not already indulging in this fine channel, here are some reasons why you should probably start right away. And let me warn you, you’ll probably get addicted like I did. Keep reading »
Sorry, “Basketball Wives” fans, but VH1 has pulled the plug on the show’s upcoming reunion special.
According to reports, producers at the network canceled the season five reunion because Evelyn Lozada refused to participate. Sources say the reality star bailed “because she’s sick and tired of talking about her split from ex-husband Chad Johnson” and she knew “the break-up would be the biggest topic on the reunion show.” Read more at Hello Beautiful…
