A “Shocking” New Twist For This Season’s “Bachelor”


ABC is airing a new promo for the upcoming season of the “Bachelor” in which one of the women is overheard shrieking about one of her competitors: “She’s been having a sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor House.” If you’re anything like my husband, you immediately have fantasies of hot girl-on-girl action, but the NY Post reports that a fan website, FansOfRealityTV.com, has been claiming for weeks that it was actually a male production crew member who was hooking up with one of the contestants during filming of the “Bachelor” this past fall. If the rumor’s true, I say more power to the woman! Of course, fraternizing between cast and crew on reality shows is usually strictly prohibited, but seeing as how the producers chose the most boring man in the world to be this season’s Bachelor, they ought to be thanking their lucky stars for a little distraction.

How Dare They Mess With Greatness?!

Hey, Life & Style? While I am usually a fan of makeunders, I really liked the “Jersey Shore” cast exactly as they were. Why did you have to “class” them up with those fancy dresses and stupid man vests? How could you deflate Snooki’s pouf? That’s just … wrong. [Just Jared]

A Christmas Miracle: The “It’s Always Sunny” Gang To Open A Real Bar In Philadelphia


My parents thought it was bad parenting to teach children to believe in invisible men that break and enter homes through chimneys once a year in tacky red suits to give overpriced gadgets to unappreciative children, but I think the gentlemen in red is entirely responsible for this. Mac and Dee of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” are opening a real bar in the City of Brotherly Love. I live here! And I’m going to go to Mac and Dee’s bar! Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore”: An Anthropological Field Guide

After the jump, your guide to understanding this wild subspecies and the show that glorifies them.

Frisky Rant: A “Teen Mom” Needs A Break Too

MTV has aired two episodes of “Teen Mom,” a spinoff of the “16 and Pregnant” series, and Farrah, the only pregnant teen who chose to go it alone, has casually dated two guys in both episodes. She doesn’t want to be a single mother forever, but she’s careful about who she introduces to baby Sophia. Farrah’s mother and sister think her only priority should be her daughter. Her sister even said Farrah was an irresponsible mom for going on a date while Sophia visited her great-grandmother. The mother and sister don’t seem to understand that they’re all on the same page when it comes to the baby. Farrah is going to college, works at a fast food restaurant, and is the dominant caregiver of Sophia. But sometimes a mom, even one who became pregnant when she was in her teens, deserves a break too. If Farrah were a married woman in her 20s, her mom and sister would probably beg her to take some time alone or with her husband. But in reality, Farrah is able to plan a schedule that allows her to take care of all her responsibilities and spend time with her baby, so it shouldn’t be a big deal if she’s able to also fit in a date or two.

Frisky Rant: Catelynn And Tyler Shouldn’t Be On “Teen Mom”

OK, I have a little confession to make: I watched every episode of “16 and Pregnant” repeatedly and now I’m obsessed with the spinoff show, “Teen Mom.” I admire these teens for being much stronger than I could be as a 20-something. (Although I can’t say they’re smarter. Condoms? Hello?) Anyway, I really enjoyed Catelynn and Tyler’s segment of “16 and Pregnant” because they were the only couple that chose to give their baby up for adoption. I cried for them when they struggled with the decision and its aftermath, but when I watch “Teen Mom” I wonder why they’re on the show at all. Keep reading »
