“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 »

    “16 & Pregnant” Finale Shows What Life Is Like After Labor

    Last night on the season finale of “16 & Pregnant,” Dr. Drew interviewed all six of the teens who gave birth in the show’s first season (it has been picked up for a second). Five out of the six girls ended up keeping their babies to raise, but it was the girl who gave her daughter up for adoption that had the biggest impact on viewers and Dr. Drew. Catelynn (along with her boyfriend/step-brother Tyler) showed an unbelievable amount of strength and maturity in making her decision to put little Carly up for adoption, emphasizing both before giving birth, after labor, and then again on the reunion that concentrating on what was best for Carly – not her own selfish desires – gave her the strength she need to see her decision through.

    Scraping The Bottom Of The Reality Show Barrel

    Are they just giving away reality shows these days? Long-forgotten musicians, football players no one really cares about, an E! network host?! These people are not worthy of the average citizen’s 15 minutes, let alone a production company’s money. Seriously, TV executives are looking to the end of the F-list to find subjects for their latest shows. To prepare yourself for the absurdity that is currently, or will soon be, airing on a TV near you, here is a list of what executives have already green lit or will soon give the a-OK: Keep reading »
