The trailer for VH1′s forthcoming TLC biopic, “CrazySexyCool,” has hit the internet, and it looks pretty damn good. Starring Drew Sidora as T-Boz, Keke Palmer as Chili, and none other than my favorite teen rapper from the mid-2000s, Lil Mama, as Left-Eye , the movie will air in full in October, and features music video reenactments of some of my personal favorite TLC songs, including “No Scrubs” and the perennial karaoke favorite “Waterfalls.” I am extremely excited to see this entire film, and if these two brief snippets of TLC classics are any indication, these ladies will do the silk pajamas of “Creep“ justice. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be listening to that song on repeat for the rest of the day. I suggest you do the same.
The word diva has been horribly overused of late. Virtually everyone’s a diva. You send your chicken dish back because it tastes funny? Diva. You want your water at room temperature? Divalicious. You can’t stand yellow M&Ms? Complete diva behavior.
But then there are some real divas. And Sunday night, VH1 put together a little show honoring them — women like Whitney Houston, who received a tribute performance from Melanie Fiona and Jordin Sparks. We may have been called divas in our time, but we’re nothing compared to these ladies.
Check out all the diva-appropriate fashion above!
I’ll admit, I didn’t watch VH1′s first season of “Couples Therapy” but I will be watching this season, which premieres October 3rd, as Dr. Jenn Berman and a team of shrinks try to help celebrity couples with their marital issues. The D-list cast includes Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson (and possibly their new pup Dourtney?), former “Real Housewives Of New York City” cast members Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, reality star Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie and more. I’m dying to get inside those marriages. Just dying. Actually, I’m most excited for Alex and Simon. They’re relationship has been making me twitch for years. Bathing suits, fights and lots of crying! Yessss! This looks the kind of trashy TV I can’t resist. [ONTD]
“Mob Wives” is back for season two this fall. Yesssss! In the meantime, last night’s scream-fest reunion episode will have to tide us over. After the jump—the good, the bad, and the head-scratching moments. (Also, SPOILERS!) Keep reading »
Back in April, we told you that Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, and Danielle Staub would be teaming up for a new reality show. And now, we finally have the details of what this show will be—VH1′s “Famous Food.” Oh, but the series has even more fascinating characters—Ashley Dupre (i.e. Eliot Spitzer’s favorite call girl), Vincent Pastore (of “The Sopranos”) and two members of Three 6 Mafia, you know, since it’s hard out there for a pimp. Together these seven will be … opening a restaurant on the Sunset Strip with the help of the famed Dolce Group. One lucky winner will become an actual partner in the venture.
The first clip of the show has been released, and it focuses on Heidi (actually, so does the second). It leads me to ask many questions… Keep reading »
This promo for Audrina Patridge’s
new VH1 reality show, “Audrina,” which premieres April 17, is absolutely captivating. I just lost five brain cells, but I can’t wait to spend lots of time watching Audrina swim and tan her way through her complicated Orange County existence. Oh, and I hope her drunk mother, Lynn
, gets plenty of screen time. Hooray for high-quality reality programming! Long live trash TV! [People

Gone are the days when the severe weight-loss show “The Biggest Loser” or the dating competition atrocity “More To Love” are the only shows on television with plus-size peeps. This past year has brought us “Huge,” a Nikki Blonsky-starring scripted show about teens at fat camp (which has since been canceled), and “Mike & Molly,” a sitcom about a plus-size couple in love (which prompted MarieClaire.com blogger Maura Kelly to pen an embarrassing post about how “fatties” repulse her). Now plus-size peeps may be making what I hope will be a more multi-faceted appearance on reality TV. Doron Ofir Casting is casting a new VH1 show that aims to be the real-life “Sex and the City” with “full-figured, fabulous big girls” in L.A.

What happens when “Jersey Shore” meets “Bridezillas”? The best Worst TV Ever.
On VH1′s new show “My Big Friggin’ Wedding,” the producers of “Jersey Shore” follow five real-life couples — two from Long Island, three from New Jersey — as they try to sober up long enough to walk down the aisle. Meet Tammie and Danny from Massapequa, NY; Amanda and Matt from Elmwood Park, NJ; Megin and Johnny from Wood Ridge, NJ; Alyssa and Tyler from Egg Harbor, NJ; and Sandra and Joey from Lynbrook, NY. It’s got drinking! It’s got the bride’s mom barfing at the bachelorette party! It’s got racist relatives! And it’s got Johnny, the “Meatball King of New Jersey”! (Sorry, ladies, he is obviously taken.) “My Big Friggin’ Wedding” will debut Monday November 1, at 9 p.m. EST on VH1, and yeah, I will so, so be watching this. [VH1] Keep reading »
Breaking news: something disappointing is getting even more disappointing. We’ve always been unimpressed with Jessica Simpson‘s show, “The Price of Beauty,” in which she and her best friends, Ken Paves and Cacee Cobb, travel around the world to discover what “beauty” means in other cultures.
But scratch that idea. Now it could become a makeover show. Keep reading »
