“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: Kim Still Can’t Sing In Public

Kim has latched onto Kandi like I predicted she would. Really, I can’t blame Kim for wanting to become close to Kandi because it’s difficult to be on a show if you’re not friends with any of the other four women. Kim visited Kandi at her studio and actually convinced Kandi to produce “Tardy for the Party,” the song she and NeNe created last season, but Kim refused to sing the song in front of Kandi. Chances are, Kim, if you’re too shy to sing with others around, then you’re not a singer. Meanwhile, Lisa and NeNe were in L.A. visiting Lisa’s family. Please tell me NeNe and I weren’t the only ones shocked to find out Lisa’s mom is black and her father is Asian — I thought it’d be the other way around. NeNe met a great part of Lisa’s Asian family members because it was her grandmother’s 92nd birthday. The best advice of the night was when Lisa’s grandmother said she slathered Vaseline all over her face throughout her life to keep wrinkles at bay. And it really works. Grandma didn’t have one wrinkle on her face. I’m too scared of acne to try it, though. As it turns out, Lisa did visit the grave site of her older brother Meho, but I still don’t get why that was such a priority for her other brother. If she didn’t want to go, she shouldn’t have been forced. Sad, sad Sheree didn’t have a big part in last night’s episode. She’s planning another Sh*t by Sheree fashion show, but for some reason Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss look-alike models aren’t showing up for her auditions. I wonder why. Keep reading »

You’re OUT: Five Reasons Why “Project Runway” Is Over

Daniel Vosovic, “Project Runway” season 2 runner-up and “All-Stars” winner, tells NYMag.com’s “The Cut” that being on “PR” again was a “mind f**k.” He goes on to explain, “It felt like a weird summer camp. Four years later everything was the same — same stage, same crappy lights, Heidi’s pregnant again. It’s like I had never left.” That may be true of the “All-Stars” reunion (which aired last week) — which brought together some of the show’s biggest personalities and best designers — but the new season of “PR” is rapidly proving it’s not the same fabulous, edgy, and fashion-forward show now that it lives on Lifetime.

I’m just gonna say it. “Project Runway” — you’re OUT. Here are five reasons why. Keep reading »

L’Chaim: Grover And Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In “Shalom Sesame”

Oy gevalt! How psyched are we that Jake Gyllenhaal, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, and Debra Messing are helping Grover out in a 12-part series called “Shalom Sesame,” a Jewish version of “Sesame Street.” The show will teach bubbelehs about Jewish culture, complete with a visit to Israel to check out important landmarks. The show has been done before in 1986 and 1990, with stars like Joan Rivers, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary Tyler Moore. The premiere of the new version will be circa Hanukkah 2010. I’ll totally be breaking out the Manischewitz, matzo, and macaroons for that one! Now let’s see if I can convert, marry a nice Jewish boy, and produce some half-Jewish babies in time for the launch!

“Real Housewives” Preview: NeNe Wants To Turn Kim Into A Black Woman

The producers, er, I mean NeNe has the brilliant idea to organize an alter-ego photo shoot for all the housewives. But Kim might have the biggest transformation because NeNe has decided to turn her into a black woman named Kina. We won’t meet Kina until tonight’s episode, but you know I’ll have the deets in tomorrow’s recap. Until then, feel free to ponder whether NeNe came up with these ideas herself this season or if she had a chat with the producers on a regular basis. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Take Me Down To Paradise City

The Degrassi hotties huddled together at the red carpet premiere of their new flick, “Paradise City: Degrassi Goes Hollywood.” Fingers crossed the movie is as action packed with pubescent problems as the tv show. But whatever it takes, I know I can make it through! [Toronto, 8/26/09] Keep reading »

The Real World: Does Having A Threesome Make You A Skank?

I’m pretty sure the cast of “The Real World: Cancun” is the worst bunch of deplorable nincompoops in the show’s history. On last night’s episode, newly single Jonna (pronounced “Jon-nay”) was gettin’ busy with this tool named Pat (who already hooked up with her roommate Jasmine) and the two of them ended up having a threesome with “bi-curious” roomie Ayiiia (how are there three f**king “i”‘s in this chick’s name?!). Afterward, everyone (but Pat, of course, who, SHOCKER, turns out not to be the sweetheart Jonna thought he was) is feeling all guilty and ashamed, worried about what Mom and Dad will say. Ayiiia ended up bawling her eyes out because she feels so judged by her family. Now, I don’t know what your parents are like, but mine are both pretty liberal and open-minded and they would not be cool with me boning anyone on reality TV, let alone two people, never mind two people who are total jackasses. So, tell me folks, are threesomes becoming a lot more commonplace? Does having one make you a big ol’ tramp or is it a normal rite of passage, so long as you’re safe? Keep reading »

Quickies!: Marge Simpson Could Be Featured In Playboy?!

  • Hugh Hefner made a disturbing announcement via Twitter that said “Marge Simpson has a surprise for her fans in the November issue of Playboy.” [Jezebel] — Something tells me it’s not what we all think it is. But then again…animated porn is kind of entertaining.
  • Chris Brown knows a thing or two about tagging a wall with graffiti, so his community service should be a breeze. [PopEater]
  • Finally, a guy admits that most men behave like wusses when it comes to dating women. [Bullz-Eye] — Now if only I could figure out a polite way to send my ex this link.

    “Mad Men” Gets Futuristic

    Could this be the start of a new hobby for those of us suffering from end-of-summer malaise? Yesterday, lexicographer (I had to look it up, too) Ben Zimmer noticed that one of the props on this past Sunday’s episode of “Mad Man” was a three-volume edition of The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, which was first published in 1987 — well over 20 years after the current season supposedly takes place. Sterling Cooper’s CFO Lane Pryce — the character whose desk housed the OED — explained on Twitter: “Regarding my office library, I was asked to hold on to those books by a nervous young man named McFly.”

    The set decorators on “Mad Men” are usually meticulous with this kind of thing, but now I can’t help but wonder what else from 1965 on has slipped by unnoticed? Show of hands: how many of us will watch the show next week with an eagle eye looking for a dog-eared copy of a John Irving novel on Peggy’s bookshelf, or a bottle of Diet Coke in Joan’s kitchen? Or, perhaps, your seasonal malaise isn’t quite as bad as mine… [via NY Mag] Keep reading »

    Getting Cast On “The Hills” Isn’t Easy But Pays Bank

    Doug Reinhardt, the baseball player who dated Lauren Conrad, recently reunited with Paris Hilton, and has the douchiest website ever, can’t seem to get himself back onto “The Hills.” According to the New York Post, the other show regulars get paid ridiculous amounts of money for their appearances. But Doug guest stars for free and just can’t seem to snag a contract. [NY Post]

    Yes, yes, we’ve figured out by now that “The Hills” are alive with the sound of bulls**t. But how exactly does one get “cast” on this show? How do these contracts and payouts work? And who’s raking in the most? Read on. Keep reading »
