When I am faced with a professional crisis, I turn to my dad, who usually has solid advice and provides me with solutions I hadn’t though of before. Allison Williams, it seems, also does the same. She attacked her now-infamous ass-eating scene on the season premiere of “Girls” like you would a particularly tricky work problem: by callin’ the ‘rents. When presented with the script that revealed her on-screen sort of love interest would be simulating ears-deep ass-eating, like any one of us would, she turned to her parents, including dad Brian Williams, for advice.
Finally, the season three trailer of “House of Cards” is here, and it’s honestly everything that I have been waiting for: Frank Underwood looking menacing in the Oval Office! Claire and her killer tousled pixie and sharp cheekbones that could cut glass, gazing pensively out a window! A figure in a dark suit, scurrying through a cemetary on a gorgeous day! America’s favorite political soap opera returns to Netflix on February 27th, and I am already readying my body for the high drama and scenery-chewing glory that awaits. Check out the trailer, above, and get ready: it’s gonna be a doozy.
On Sunday, January 11, “Girls” fourth season premieres on HBO. The trailer shows Hannah at grad school in Iowa, Marnie pursuing her singing career (with Desi), and Shoshana having a rough time adjusting to post-collegiate life. Here are our predictions for Season 4 in BINGO form.
Every Monday, I’ll be livetweeting a new, exhaustingly long episode of “The Bachelor” on both my personal (@xoamelia) and The Frisky’s Twitter accounts, giving a detailed, hilarious, wine-and-weed-influenced critique of “Prince Farming” (oh go fuck yourself with that nickname, Chris Harrison) and his search for a woman willing to move to
a post-apocalyptic hell tundra Iowa. Every Tuesday, I will be recapping the show with some form of an infographic, because three hours actually forming sentences to describe my feelings about this shitshow is enough for all of us. Above, my first impressions of “the girls.”
- Last night was the premiere of “The Celebrity Apprentice” and Keshia Knight Pulliam was the first star given the boot. Knight Pulliam was “fired” from the show because she refused to call her “Cosby Show” co-star Bill Cosby to ask him to donate money to some stupid challenge they were doing for the show. Though the episode was filmed a full year ago, before the latest array of sexual assault allegations against the entertainer came to light, it’s still difficult not to read into Knight Pulliam’s comments that she hasn’t talked to Cosby in years.

- Teresa Giudice has reported to prison to begin serving her 15-month sentence. Hope they stalked up on hairspray at the commissary… [Us Weekly]
- Jennifer Aniston is so over her split from Brad Pitt that she says she doesn’t even find it painful to think about. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
The Season Premiere Of “My Strange Addiction” Features “Maskers” (AKA Something New To Haunt Your Nightmares)
Let’s be clear: there’s nothing “strange” about men dressing up as women; if that’s what you’re into, whether it’s just for fun, or a sexual kink, or you moonlight as a drag queen, go for it. But there is something a little odd about “maskers,” men who dress up in head-to-toe latex female doll outfits, including totally fucking nightmare-inducing face masks. Listen, if that’s what you’re into, as the dudes featured on the season premiere of “My Strange Addiction” apparently are, I’ll support your right to do just that, and acknowledge what’s strange to me might not be strange to you, but I probably am not going to want to stare your flat, expressionless, plastic face for too long as, sorry, it terrifies me. We’ll see how long I last when the episode airs on January 7.
