“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: “I’m The Director”

NeNe Leakes shouted “I’m the director” all over Buckhead as she prepared “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for the alter-ego photo shoot by photographer Derek Banks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode opened with the social director of the crew (NeNe) inviting Kandi and Sheree for Minx Nails manicures. They really over-shared about their pubic hair while getting primped. Kandi got rid of hers with electrolysis. And Sheree is completely bald, and I don’t know why. Brazilians? Alopecia? Who knows.

Season Two Of “The City” Looks Like A Snoozefest


Even though last season of “The City” wasn’t so great, I’m still rooting for Whitney Port. I hoped that season two would be a little juicier. But now that MTV has released this extended trailer, I dunno. Here’s what’s happening this season: Whitney says goodbye to Diane von Furstenberg to design her own clothing line. Olivia goes to work at Elle and pisses all her coworkers off. Kelly Cutrone gets in some good one-liners. Whitney beefs with her glass-half-empty new coworker at People’s Revolution. Jay is gone and has been replaced by some bozo in a suit and tie named Freddy. He and Whitney obviously have zero chemistry and coincidentally the New York Post is reporting today that their relationship is already dunzo. So, things aren’t looking so hot. But I’ll probably end up watching anyway because that is how strong “reality” television’s hold is on me. Keep reading »

Miss Piggy And Kermit To Show Their Fluff On “America’s Got Talent”

You know what there’s not nearly enough of on television these days? Muppets. Which is why I’m giddy that Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog will be performing tonight on “America’s Got Talent.” I don’t know exactly what they’ll be doing, besides celebrating the 40th anniversary of “Sesame Street,” but I’m hoping that Kermit will sing “It’s Not Easy Being Green” while Miss Piggy synchronize swims in the background like she did in “The Great Muppet Caper.” Also appearing with them—crotchety old critics Statler and Waldorf. Let’s hope they take over for judges Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne.

There is one other performer tonight who I’m not as enthused about—former “Talent” judge David Hasselhoff. Wait, maybe he and Kermit will be vying for Miss Piggy’s love? That’d be cool. [People] Keep reading »

“The Hills” Are Alive With The Sound Of Kristin


Yes, we showed you a mini clip yesterday, but today MTV has released a full-fledged two minute (two minute!) preview of season 6 of “The Hills,” where Lauren Conrad is dunzo and mean girl Kristin Cavallari steps in to keep the drama going. What’s this I see? Kristen playing tonsil hockey with Justin Bobby, and ignoring the fact that his facial hair is out of control? Heidi’s pushing for a baby and thinks women expire at 22? Now Kristin’s after Brody, while simultaneously saying that their sex life was vanilla? Holly’s going to rehab? Audrina’s feuding with everyone? Spencer’s cowboy hat is ridiculous? Geez, this season looks like it’s going to be amazing. I know the sad truth of this show is that you get absolutely all the juicy moments in the previews and the episodes don’t actually add much, but you best bet that I’ll be watching the season premiere on September 29th.

“Saturday Night Live” Signs Two New Cast Members With Vajayjays

My dream job (aside from being a Frisky blogger, of course) would be “SNL” cast member. After Amy Poehler left the show last season, I thought I had my chance and I quickly got to work developing characters for the show. Well, I guess you’ll have to wait a while longer to see Miss Teenage America and Bird With The Broken Wing because two funny ladies have snatched up my job out from under my nose. Foiled again! Rumor has it that comediennes Jenny Slate (center) and Nasim Pedrad (left) will join ridiculously funny Kristen Wiig (right) representing ladyfolk on the show, along with Abby Elliott, Michaela Watkins, and Casey Wilson. That brings the female-to-male cast ratio to 4:3. That’s the most women on the show in 35 years! [Mediaite.com] Keep reading »

We Didn’t Think It Was Possible For “The Hills” To Get Any Cattier

This season of “The Hills” is gonna be different since Lauren Conrad left the show, opening up a spot for Kristin Cavallari, who was in the original “Laguna Beach” cast. Compared to Lauren’s demeanor, Kristin is a lot — how do we say this nicely — bitchier. While her personality can be a little caustic, Kristin and her loud mouth will make for some exciting TV. In the clip above, Kristin and a friend shop for a birthday present for Kristin’s ex, Brody Jenner. Watch a longer preview of the upcoming season at People.com. Keep reading »

TV Spin-Off: The Real Lesbians Of LA

Ever since Shane broke up with me via TV series cancellation, I’ve been left alone, without an “L Word” to love. But now, there’s hope — six new West Hollywood gayelles will be seducing me America via the boob tube. The best part is, they’ll be real! The Showtime series creator, Ilene Chaiken, says she’s working on a reality show spin-off called “The Real L Word.” She’s currently conducting a nationwide search for America’s Next Top Lesbians. May the best women win! And co-producer Jane Lipsitz promises the new series will go there and touch us in places that have “yet to be explored on reality television.” Promises, promises. We’ve seen plenty of vag-on-vag action on reality TV from drunken “Real World” threesomes starring pseudo-lesbos. So lame. At least on this show, the hot sex will be fo’ realz. But will the “L Word” reality series live up to the scandalous amount of sexy times the series had? Patience ladies, we have to wait until the show starts airing sometime next year.

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of August 31st 2009

This week’s television forecast is … partly cloudy. There’s the season premiere of “Greek,” the HBO beauty-obsession doc “Youth Knows No Pain,” more drama with the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (duh), and a reprisal of “Glee,” complete with cast and crew commentary. But while there’s lots going on, we’re all kind of looking forward to next week, which will be a veritable television-gasm. So make sure to check back so you don’t miss the biggest week of premieres all year.
