Last night, I had dinner over at my mom’s apartment with my brother and his girlfriend and we got to talking about reconsidering the legality (or illegality) of plural marriage, i.e. polygamy. Putting aside personal feelings on the idea of polygamy, what we ended up concluding was that the government shouldn’t consider marriage a religious institution at all, as it violates the notion of separation between church and state, and that marriage, if anything, needs to remain a legal union between two individuals — no more — so that the monetary benefits don’t reward those who marry multiple people for so-called religious reasons or otherwise.
So why am I blathering on about plural marriage anyway? Because last night was the series premiere of “Sister Wives,” the reality show about a man and his three (soon to be four!) wives and their flock of children living in Utah. And, for the most part, it was boring. Keep reading »
Chances are, if you’ve had a functioning television over the last few years, you already recognize Autumn Reeser from her roles on “The OC” and this past season of “Entourage.” But her new show, “No Ordinary Family” (which debuts tomorrow night at 8 p.m.on ABC), is one of the most talked about shows this season, setting Reeser up to become one of the actresses you should keep your eye on. Reeser plays Katie Andrews, a woman who becomes closely involved with a family that discovers they all suddenly possess some, uh, supernatural abilities. I got a chance to talk to Autumn about her exciting new role, whether she’ll be back on “Entourage” next season, and got the scoop on her pet project — a female-focused blogging venture that could give The Frisky a little competition. Check out the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »
You’ve been going through Lauren Conrad withdrawal ever since she walked away from “The Hills,” right? No? OK, well, then you probably won’t be very excited about the news that Lauren will once again be starring in an MTV reality series. She revealed to Ryan Seacrest on Friday that a new show about her life is in the works—and this time it’ll focus exclusively on her work life as she designs and markets her clothing line. In other words, it will be all the blah of “The Hills” with none of the juiciness. Keep reading »
Bristol Palin‘s “Dancing with the Stars” partner, Mark Ballas, made the trek to Alaska this weekend to meet the Palins, check out the frozen scenery, and play an acoustic guitar set at a bar called Rumrunners. He posted the pics above on his Twitter page captioned, “Me and my gorgeous partner Bristol … Me and Mama Palin.” Yep, that should curb rumors that these two are dating.

I knew something good had to come out of the fact that there are two high-profile reality shows about the species of people that exist in the state of New Jersey. Love! Or at least a dance-floor hookup! Apparently, Deena Cortese, the new girl on “Jersey Shore,” got together with Chris Manzo, son of Caroline Manzo from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” at a club last weekend. “Deena was basically humping Chris in front of everyone,” a source told Radar. Maybe Chris will recruit Deena as the co-owner of his car-wash strip club and they’ll live happily ever after? [Radar]
This has inspired us to play matchmaker and set up the stars of other reality TV shows. Keep reading »
