Get Ready For “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season Two

NeNe’s gonna meet her real father! Sheree’s gonna get evicted! And she shoots guns! And she pulls at Kim’s wig! The promo video for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season two is reality TV heaven packaged into 30 seconds. It definitely looks like the Atlanta ladies are bringing their A-game to compete with the “prostitution whores” of New Jersey. I can’t wait to “watch what happens” in exactly 20 days when the next season premieres. Keep reading »

“Dating In The Dark” Wonders If Looks Matter

If my estimates are correct, in three weeks “The Bachelorette” concludes its latest run. What are we going to watch on Monday nights?! Oh don’t worry, ABC knows they have a reality TV dating show void to fill and “Dating In The Dark,” premiering on July 20th at 8 pm, is their latest gimmick. According the ABC.com, “Three single men and three single women move into a house together, and get to know each other and form bonds in total darkness.” The ultimate question — do looks really matter? Um, yes. Which is why they cast realistic, but completely attractive people for this little experiment. In the end, whichever “couples” emerge into the light won’t be disappointed by a schlubby bald guy or a mousy twig with bad teeth at the other end of the hand they’re holding. Still… Keep reading »

“Daria” On DVD, Finally!

La, la, la, la, la, I’ve got to be direct, I’ve been waiting for “Daria” on DVD ever since MTV took the “Beavis and Butt-Head”-spinoff off the air. Daria was to alt-girls what Cher Horowitz was to Valley girls. She made it okay to wear combat boots and not care about the latest fads. And her sarcasm was lethal, proving that a girl with brains and glasses can stand up for herself. We can’t wait until the summer of 2010 when Daria takes down the Heidi Montags of the world, or at least their ratings. [Street] Keep reading »

Hustler Inspired By The Boob Tube

We already told you about “Not The Cosby Show XXX”, “Celebrity Pornhab with Dr. Screw”, “Keeping It Up With The Kard-ASS-ians”, “This Ain’t Star Trek XXX”, and reports on the trend of porn companies like Hustler Video looking to television for inspiration, writing:

The twist now is going the extra mile to invest projects with better production values that actually have scripts and genuinely resemble the source material. There are stories, plots and even sex-free versions to accentuate the parody– however incongruous that might sound — on Blu-ray editions.

Uh, sex free versions? Now what’s the point of THAT? [Variety] Keep reading »

Just Say No: A 24-Hour Wedding Channel

Just when you thought there couldn’t be anymore hoopla involved with getting married, the wedding industry strikes again! The WE channel, in conjunction with Cablevision, is launching a 24-7 channel on all things bridal. Because we don’t get enough of the terrifically terrible ladies on “Bridezillas” and are just dying for more shows like “Amazing Wedding Cakes” and “My Fair Wedding.” I sometimes sit and watch some of the wack job bridezillas chicks and think, Really, why are you marrying a man you are being this horrible to now? And, That’s your mother, she’s paying for all of this, let her wear what she wants! One bride-to-be (pictured, above) got out a scale and made all of her bridesmaids step on it, on national TV, to make sure they all weighed more than her. Sometimes I scream on the inside at the grooms—Get out while you can! Soon, there will wedded (non)bliss 24 hours a day. Great. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Miami Social, Will You Watch?

I have a confession to make. I’ve never been to South Beach. Gasp! I have been to Miami, if you count the airport. South Beach was on my list of places to visit until I watched a clip of Bravo’s “Miami Social,” which has turned me off from the tourist destination. Keep reading »

“NYC Prep” Debuts With All The Makings Of Future Tragedies

Amid much anticipation, Bravo’s new “real-life Gossip Girl” series, “NYC Prep,” debuted last night, delivering the expected. For weeks, critics and Bravo fans have been fairly certain that the series would show a crew of despicable, entitled teenagers, a prediction that came largely with feelings of anger and harsh criticism. So, what did you get? Stuck-up teens who you couldn’t help yelling at for an hour, who, you realized you just love to hate. It’s a hit! Read on for a run-down, reactions from the NYC private school community, plus my take on things as a former prepster. Keep reading »
