6 Crazy Things Ads Want You To Believe Are True

Commercials are duplicitous. They are designed to illicit the same response from us as a burning fire; our interest level is minimal at best yet we can’t tear ourselves from a constantly shifting image. Advertisers do this to protect the absurdity in every commercial, encouraging viewers to watch, but not too intently that reason might step in and say, “What the hell is going on here?” And ordinarily, we accept it without argument the same way we accept blue raspberry as a legitimate flavor.

While Flying, Flight Attendants Score IFBs

Apparently, flight attendants not only flirt — they have “IFBs” (that is, in-flight boyfriends). So it was revealed on last night’s “Fly Girls” series premiere.

“It’s a cute guy that you scope out to help the time fly,” explains one Virgin America flight attendant.

See how it’s done when she sets her eye on the hottie in 18C. The girl’s got game. Watch it Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of D.C.”: The White House Party Crashers And Others Rumored To Be In The Cast

Do the names Michaele and Tareq Salahi sound familiar? You probably know them as the “White House party crashers.” The Salahis are the couple that created a security frenzy when they were able to get into Obama’s State Dinner uninvited. In the media barrage that followed, White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers lost her job, and the Salahis place on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” was apparently cemented. Though initial rumors about the Salahis’ role in the show were ignored by Bravo, it turns out that station already had the couple signed on for the show at the time of the State Dinner. Bravo is even said to have had cameras at the event to capture the Salahis’ illegal arrival. Now that the controversy and threat of legal action against the couple has calmed, Bravo plans to make the couple the center of new series, which premieres in July. [The Daily Beast]

But the Salahis are only one-fifth of this new installment of Bravo’s feisty franchise. After the jump, keep reading to see what housewives are rumored to be bringing some cattiness to Capitol Hill this summer. Keep reading »

“True Blood” Season 3 Is Brewing

After months of placating myself with reality television because both “Mad Men” and “True Blood” have been off the air, I finally get a glimmer of hope via this teaser poster for the third season of “True Blood.” I am now officially in a tizzy of anticipation for the show and all it took was an appliance full of colored corn syrup. Who else is ready to drink up another season of sex, scandal and Sookie? Keep reading »

Quotable: Chloë Sevigny Says “Big Love” Sucked This Season

“It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in. HBO only gave us nine Sundays … I think that they had more story than episodes … We never know what’s going to happen in the next episode until we’re almost finished shooting the one we’re shooting at present. Me and the girls [Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going—or more kind of, ‘We really hope it’s going to work. It seems like they’re really pushing it.’”

Chloë Sevigny explains why I’ve preferred watching Bravo repeats to checking out this season of “Big Love” via OnDemand. What are your thoughts on the show? And will someone please tell me who J.J. is trying to have an incest baby with? Is it his and Nicki’s daughter? Thanks. [A.V. Club] Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Are Ba-ack!

It’s been way too long since we’ve seen a good table flip on TV. So thank goodness that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” will be back in May. And shocker, the second season seems to be all about hating on Danielle Staub and her new face. “To the end of Danielle. I hope she goes back where she came from — hell!” says Teresa, in a toast, no less. And, wait, is that Teresa running after Danielle to kick her butt? Oh, the drama. Keep reading »

“Fly Girls” Introduces Us To A New Acronym: IFB

Fly Girls,” the new CW reality show that follows a group of flight attendants, premiered last night, and boy was it a doozy. “The Hills” and “Real Houswives” feel scripted, but this show takes “reality” to another level of fake. The first episode did, however, introduce us to a new acronym, IFB, which stands for “in-flight boyfriend.” I think even non-flight attendants can relate to daydreaming about a fellow passenger to pass the flying time.

How Are We Feeling About “The City” These Days?


My fascination with “The City” ebbs and flows, but for some intangible reason, I always drift back into it. Maybe it has something to do with the facts that Olivia Palermo fascinates me (she kinda reminds me of Fallon from “Dynasty”), it’s always interesting to see the behind-the-scenes at Elle — Joe Zee is so charismatic! — and when Kelly Cutrone shows up, the thin story line gains some edge. Mostly, it’s one of those fashion reality shows that works, despite its flaws. Season Two doesn’t begin until Apr. 27, but I’m jammin’ on this preview. Looks like I’m in for a few more episodes.
