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 »
VH1′s “Behind the Music” is so back! And they have Courtney Love and the inner sanctum of her crazy mind to thank for that. It is hands down one of the most insane interviews to come out in forever. In case you missed it on Monday night, here are some priceless quotes from the raging screamer herself. Also, they’ll be re-airing it for the next couple of weeks. MUST NOT MISS. After the jump, the highlights—quote by precious, psychotic quote. [Popeater] Keep reading »
Almost a year ago, we heard that VH1 had a new reality series in the works called the “OCD Project,” where a group of people whose need for order, fear of germs, obsession with death and reliance on rituals are ruining their lives. Basically, we thought it was going to be “The Real World” with an enormous amount of handwashing. Well, the show premieres tonight at 10 p.m. and it looks like it’s going to be amazingly intense. The six 20- and 30-somethings on the series live together for 21 days and work with Dr. David Tolin, whose approach to treating OCD is extreme—not only in analyzing triggers but in making patients do the very things they fear most. Participants will have to chew gum that they rubbed in toilets, go to fake funerals for their loved ones, sit in dumpsters and lick the bottom of shoes. In the end, hopefully they’ll come through healed. I cannot wait for this show, though am guessing a box of tissues will be required for viewing. Keep reading »
