On Sunday night, prepare to witness the most unholy of lip locks. While in New York, Audrina Patridge and her often-tipsy mom Lynn stopped by Donald Trump‘s office to talk about “business opportunities” for Audrina — with the cameras for her VH1 reality show rolling, of course. Trump said that Audrina is “beautiful and smart” and would be welcome on “Celebrity Apprentice” or as a co-host of the Miss Universe pageant. Eeek. But the worst part is when Trump and Lynn said goodbye, kissing each other somewhere between the cheek and lip, on repeat. And giving us this horrifying image. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Who do “Inception,” “Transformers” and “The Muppets” all have in common? I was scratching my head on that one. All three movies are examples of “the Smurfette principle,” explains Anita Sarkeesian of the blog Feminist Frequency. “The Smurfette principle” is a common trope in movies and TV shows that try to be palatable to male audiences by having an ensemble of nearly all male characters with one token female character, who is oftentimes uber-feminine (Miss Piggy) or super hot (Megan Fox) or otherwise unthreatening.

Us Frisky ladies are getting pretty into “The Voice,” thanks to the fact that it’s all about the singing and not about image, like “American Idol” can be. For the past two weeks , Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine have been busily assembling their 8-person teams that will battle it out for the next few weeks. The way it worked was simple—a singer belted out a song as the four listened with their backs turned. If a team leader pressed their red button, they’d turn around and that person would be on their team. If more than one of them turned around, the singer could choose the person’s whose team they were most pumped to join. (Duh. Cee-Lo!) If no one pressed their button, the singer was out.
Christina says things got pretty heated when more than one team leader wanted a singer. Keep reading »
Lord, what have we done? Am I not tithing enough? Am I too mean to my mother? Is this because I kicked my parents’ dog when he was begging under the table during Easter dinner? Why, oh why, has The Situation been given his own TV show? Mike Sorrentino has signed a series development deal with MTV and will start filming later this year. Although no plans are specific yet, no good can come of this. Imagine all that booze-infused date rape-y douchiness distilled into one show.

“Celebrity Apprentice” has been hyping this girl fight between Nene Leakes and Star Jones all season. I’ve been watching and waiting, but was starting to think it was never going to happen. But OH. It went down on Sunday night. Nene went totally batty on Star in front of Donald Trump and the Biosilk/Chi executive. Awkward! Cringeworthy! My thoughts, after the jump. Keep reading »
Sometimes, there just isn’t enough time in an episode for all of our favorite characters to get a moment in the sun.
On almost every show there’s an unsung hero, always supporting the main players, only getting thrown a bone every now and then. Depending on the show, some characters are just given the shaft season after season. If we were calling the shots, these characters would come front and center (at least for a multi-episode arc!) and have their moment in the sun.
From characters who deal with the undead to a blue-haired cartoon boy, we want to see more of these characters on screen ASAP. Read more… Keep reading »
