TV Shows That Are Complete Rip Offs

DJ AM, who you may remember as the other survivor in a plane crash along with Travis Barker, has a new show set to debut on MTV. The plane crash wasn’t the first time DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, defied death. Eleven years ago, he was a crack addict who attempted suicide, but fortunately the gun got jammed. Since he’s been so lucky to escape death twice, he’s looking to help other people with addictions. His show, “Gone Too Far,” will help the loved ones of addicts rescue their friends and family from the reaches of death. This show sounds familiar. Wait a second… Isn’t that the same plot as A&E’s “Intervention”? Indeed, it is! While I’m not shocked that MTV is completely copying another network’s successful show, it’s so not. In fact, recycled premises happen all of the time. More after the jump. [LA Times Blog]

The “Househusbands Of Hollywood” Are True Home Boys

Some people say they’re sick of all the shows about housewives, trophy wives, and other kept women. Well, now they can see how the other side — the househusband — lives. Fox Reality’s “Househusbands of Hollywood” focuses on men who run their households while their bread-winning Hollywood wives bring home the bacon. This is how Fox defines a househusband: “King of the castle…ruler of the roost…until his wife comes home from work.” Two of the better known husbands are Darryl M. Bell, who played Ron Johnson on “A Different World” and is married to Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa Huxtable of “The Cosby Show“), and former L.A. Dodgers baseball player Billy Ashley, whose wife is a successful Hollywood makeup artist. Charlie Mattera, another hubby featured, co-created the series with his wife, a prominent psychologist. The others are Marine sniper Grant Reynolds, married to Fox 11 morning news show host Jillian Reynolds, and Danny Barclay, an aspiring actor hitched to a high-powered L.A. lawyer. “Househusbands of Hollywood” premieres Aug. 15.

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”: What’s Going To Happen In Season Two?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be back tomorrow night, y’all, and we, meaning Amelia and I, can’t wait. This season, all five of the women, including newcomer Kandi Burruss, get in on the dramz. I’m talking hair-pulling, name-calling, home-foreclosing draaaama. After the jump, I speculate on what will happen in season two based on watching the preview videos a bazillion times. Keep reading »

“More To Love” Is About Female Insecurity, Not Body Size

I’m not going to lie. I was pretty excited about last night’s premiere episode of “More to Love.” At 6’1″, I’m a big girl no matter how much I weigh. Here was a show dedicated to the plight of all of us larger-sized folk wandering the earth, looking for someone who will say the magic words: “You are big, and that is awesome.”

The premise of “More to Love” is simple. It’s like “The Bachelor,” only people have taken to calling it “The Fatchelor,” because this time around, the dude looking for love is 26-year-old, 6’3″, 330-pound Luke Conley. And he’s not looking for a skinny bitch. He’s looking for a woman who’s “curvy.” Keep reading »

“Police Women of Broward County” Promises To Be The New “Cops”

“Bad girls, bad girls, whatchoo gonna do? Whatchoo gonna do when they come for you?” Or, more importantly, what you are going to do when the “Police Women of Broward County” come for you? A new reality TV show from TLC, this 10-part documentary series set in Broward County, Florida, reveals life on the streets for the female sheriffs who patrol it. “Some Moms pack lunches. These Moms pack heat.” Wielding Taser guns, armed with handcuffs, and willing to push anyone in their way to the ground, these are the ladies you do not want to mess with — unless you are looking to spend the night in jail. “There’s always a good time to use a Taser,” Andrea Penoyer, a 26-year-old mom, explains. You go, girl! The program premieres August 6 at 9 p.m. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Daisy Picks Her Dude. And, Of Course, It’s London.

While most of you were drooling over “True Blood” last night, I had much more important things to attend to. Namely, the season finale of “Daisy Of Love.” What went down wasn’t a shocker to anyone who’d been watching the season, which took trashy reality dating shows to a whole new glorious low. In the end, even when given the choice of the mega-hot, super-sweet, and totally amusing Flex, Daisy chose London, the homeless 30-year-old rocker from Brooklyn with perma-eyeliner and maybe a girlfriend. Yep, she chose the guy who passed out drunk in a hallway the first night of the series and left midway through because he couldn’t take it, only to eventually come back, with his mohawk between his legs. These two had a gravitational pull towards each other, even though they’re obviously a trainwreck-about-to-happen. The show’s host Ricky Rachtman seemed totally surprised by Daisy’s choice. But I, on the other hand, was not. Keep reading »

“True Blood” Recap: Bill Compton Shows His Animalistic Side

On last night’s episode of “True Blood,” we finally got to see another side to Bill Compton, which had been hinted at, but never seen. Bill had always told Sookie that he wasn’t always such a gentile vampire, eager to mainstream. In a flashback scene that takes place in the ’20s, Bill and his maker/lover, Lorena, pretend to be French (hilarious!), Bill sings and plays the piano (even more hilarious!), glamor a couple into having a foursome with them, and then feed on the hapless lovers before screwing on a bed covered in blood. HAWT. Keep reading »
