“NYC Prep” Recap: Lofty Aspirations — Have These Kids Never Heard Of Hubris?

This week’s installment of “NYC Prep” was the first episode where it felt like we were past the character introductions, and finally into the thick of their lives. What did we find when we got there? The clan lives to achieve higher. Kelli with her singing, Taylor with dance, PC with … well, we’re not quite sure there … maybe let’s just say “coolness,” Jessi with her “career” in fashion (WTF, Miss I Can’t Even Vote Yet?), and as always, there was Camille, ever the social-climbing slut.

Ted Gibson Replaces Nick Arrojo On “What Not To Wear”

Every personality on “What Not to Wear” seems right for the makeover show, with the exception of hairstylist Nick Arrojo (pictured right). Hosts Clinton Kelly and Stacy London have the good fashion cop/bad fashion cop schtick perfected, and makeup artist Carmindy always makes the participant look a hundred times better by “playing up” their eyes or lips. But Nick’s hairstyles were usually hit or miss. He was always a little too scissor-happy, giving participants “mom hair” on more than one occasion. And his own hairstyles, including boyish ringlets and a Caesar cut with a flavor saver, seemed in need of a makeover, too. Keep reading »

“The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All”: Where Were Reid And Wes?

On last night’s epiode of “The Bachelorette,” also known as the otherwise useless and boring “Men Tell All” segment that comes before the finale (airing next week), two of the men were mysteriously absent — Wes Hayden and Reid Rosenthal. Of their absence, host Chris Harrison said that Reid “had a prior engagement” and Wes couldn’t make it either. Um, right. For starters, these dudes sign contracts don’t they? I can’t remember when a “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” contestant, especially one that made as much of an impact as Wes, got let off the hook from appearing on the “Tell All” episode. Well, lookie here, Wes has an explanation… Keep reading »

Lizzie Grubman Rejects Offer To Be A “Real Housewife”

Lizzie Grubman, the bleach-blonde PR maven who mowed a few people down in the Hamptons a few years ago, is just too busy to have her life taped for Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City.” In an attempt to replace Bethenny Frankel, who will be starring in her own show, and some of the greedy housewives who are giving Bravo grief over their contracts, the producers of the show approached Lizzie. Her reply? “I completely love the show, but I have no interest whatsoever.” Guess what, Lizzie? I had no interest either. MTV’s “Power Girls” was chock-full of lame-oh! C’mon, Bravo––find some new personality that will make Kelly Bensimon look sane. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Why Is Stephen Moyer’s Ex On The “True Blood” Beat?

Yesterday The New York Post ran a profile on Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton on “True Blood.” According to Defamer, the paper failed to note that the interviewer, Lorien Haynes, is, uh, Moyer’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama. In a recent issue of Star, Haynes was revealed as Moyer’s ex and mother to his daughter Lilac in a piece titled, “‘True Blood’s Secret Love Triangle.” It quotes Moyer saying of their breakup, “Nobody has left anybody for anybody else.” Considering Moyer and his co-star Anna Paquin have made no attempt to hide the fact that sparks flew the moment they met on set, who knows how true that statement really is.

So while it’s majorly odd that Haynes profiled her ex for a story — and didn’t mention their relationship — it’s even weirder that she also interviewed Paquin for a story which ran in the Daily Mail U.K. yesterday as well. Seriously, why is Haynes on the permanent “True Blood” beat? Isn’t this a conflict of interest and also a wee bit psycho? [Defamer] Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You Should Watch The Week Of July 20th 2009

The good ol’ electronic hearth is serving up a hefty portion of girl-tastic shows this week. Tonight, after “The Bachelorette,” of course, check out “Dating in the Dark.” We also have high hopes for ABC’s new teen music sitcom “Ruby & The Rockits,” which looks like it owes more than a little to “Hannah Montana.” The creepily watchable “Toddlers and Tiaras” also starts this week. And then there’s the season finale of “Southern Belles: Louisville.” Awww, television.

“True Blood” Recap: Jason Is Rewarded

On last night’s episode of “True Blood,” Lafayette returned to the grill at Merlotte’s, Sam and Daphne bonded over being shapeshifters (though we still don’t anything about its connection to her big scar), and Mary Ann moved into Tara and Sookie’s house because that big ol’ mansion she was living in? Not hers. Meanwhile, in Dallas, we found out why Eric is so concerned about finding Godrick — it turns out, Godrick is his maker! Also, Godrick is totally the world’s first twink. Sookie decided she’d have to infiltrate the Fellowship Of The Sun to find out if they’ve got Godrick, but little does she know that Jason is one of them now. In fact, Jason is in so deep, he got a handy from Sarah, the preacher’s wife, in the bathtub as a reward for being such a devoted soldier of God! Clip above. Keep reading »

“Miami Social” Represents Humanity At Its Most Tan & Vapid

So I finally got a chance to watch the first episode of Bravo’s new trashtastic reality series, “Miami Social.” Is it just me, but do they make a special breed of horrendously shallow human being down in Miami? No offense to Floridians in general, truly, as I love your beaches, Cuban food, and old people, but the folks on “Miami Social” make me want to gouge out my eyeballs. Not that I will stop watching of course. Anyway, above is a clip featuring the first episode’s “best” moments from cast member Ariel. After demanding a “fat girl” with “tarantula hair” be removed from his table, he marvels at how horrible it must be to be an ugly girl. You see, being an ugly guy isn’t so bad, but an ugly girl? Can you IMAGINE?! Ugh. The only thing Ariel can give us insight into is what life is like when you’re ugly on the inside, where it counts. Keep reading »
