American Horror Story: Freak Show


AHS Edward

By: Urethra Franklin

Hallo mein liebchen Freaktards!

Every year AHS does a 2 part Halloween episode and tonight is part 1, and we will find out who the baddest witch in town is. Ooopsie wrong season. Actually we might find out who the baddest freak in town is, and that could possibly be Edward Mordrake. His character is based on a legend about a man with 2 faces that may or may not have existed during the 19th century.  The myth about this Victorian era madman is that he was born with another face on the back of his head that would whisper to him and force his good side to do horribly evil things.

Writers took creative liberties and fictionalized the tale of Edward Mordrake into a ‘Bloody Mary style’ superstition for the carnival workers. Elsa’s beloved ‘monsters’ believe that if they perform& sing on Halloween night that it will summon Mordrake, and he will take them all to HELL. While Dot & Bette dismiss it as nothing but a myth, Ethel Darling warns them that it is all true. She knows firsthand because he is a dark tormentor from her past, and he is thirsty for some revenge. Could Elsa’s warbling of a Lana Del Rey song be the reason for his sudden appearance at the Carnival? #GodsAndMonsters Continue reading

Blood Sweat and Heels Bravoleb Geneva Thomas Arrested for Felony Assault

Demetria on Blood Sweat and Heels It's Hell Time

If you had Geneva Thomas in the Which Bravoleb Will Be The Next Felon By Bravo Pool, you are a winner!  But really? Who would have chosen her? I liked her and thought she was the voice of sanity on Blood Sweat and Heels.  She made news a month or two ago over stiffing a cab driver, but at the time it just seemed like it was all a big misunderstanding. She has a January court date for that situation.   But now, Geneva has gone full on bad girl!

First of all, the good news is that Blood Sweat and Heels is taping again. I actually liked that show season one, though we all know the second season of anything Bravo produced is when things start to go to shit. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Day Two Afternoon Recap: It Was A Slow, Boring Afternoon

Jodi Arias TwitterWe are officially down two jurors in two days. Yesterday one was excused for a family emergency, today one decided to wander out front, take her badge off, have a smoke and watch the live news interviews. That was juror 9 and she has been sent packing.

Back to the showdown between Willmott and Horn. Willmott says it is possible to survive a gunshot wound to the frontal lobe. Horn sticks to his original story that when he reviewed his initial report he made some corrections. Horn maintains that the gun shot was last. JW ends her cross.

Martinez jumps up and runs toward Horn with a pen a pretends to stab him while shouting “That didn’t take long, did it?” Willmott objects saying, “Mr Martinez is standing next to the witness and yelling at him…and stabbing him!”  Not nearly as good as Objection! Fairytale! Which will always remain the best objection made by any attorney in any case.  Juan does very little redirect. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Day 2 Morning Recap

Jodi Arias Day 2

Juan was in court early prosecuting an unrelated case. All of Jodi’s family and Donovan are there. Travis’s family is there including all the sisters. Jodi chatted with her mitigation specialist while she waited.  A juror is running late but in en route. Meanwhile Nurmi made a motion to repress the medical examiner’s testimony about the order of the wounds. Judge Stephens denied it.  For some reason I do not understand, Nurmi is not allowed to cross-examine Flores’ testimony from yesterday  until after Horn gives his testimony. I believe Horn is the HOT medical examiner that we enjoyed watching last time. He will be up first today. The order of the wounds and the determination of the fatal wound seem to be very important to both sides. And frankly, if I recall correctly Horn, or someone changed their minds about the order of the wound inflictions last time. I think Horn’s schedule is limited and he can only testify first this morning. That is why Nurmi can’t do his cross yet. Nurmi thinks this is a calculated move by Martinez. Of course it was but there is no law against it.

I am still confused why Nurmi is upset over the phone sex call. Nurmi feels that Martinez is questioning the authenticity of the recording. Martinez says he is not questioning the authenticity, he is questioning whether the tape was stolen. Nurmi wants to call Martinez on the stand to state that he has already acknowledged the authenticity of the tape.  Does anyone understand the point of this? Nurmi seems to be saying if the judge doesn’t find prosecutorial misconduct on Martinez’s part he will call him as a witness. Continue reading

Crazy Days And Nights SHOCKING Real Housewives of Atlanta Blind Item Revealed

RHOA Porsha

Who’s crying now?

This blind item from May 14, 2014 that CDAN revealed yesterday is just sad. I’m no Porsha fan but from what I’ve seen of her on Dish Nation, she seems to have found something she is really good at. She has a great rapport with her coworkers. She’s funny and seems…happy. I already knew she would not have a peach this season, and so did she. She for sure knew she was retesting to be on the show at all and made the cut to be a FOH.  As much as Nene wants y’all to believe Claudia stole Porsha’s peach, she didn’t. Claudia stole Demetria’s peach. It was Demetria that they were testing for a full housewife slot and Claudia tested for a FOH slot. But Claudia blew the producers away, particularly by going after Kordell (even if it was just storyline) and reading the  hell out of Nene on their forced vacation this season.

It’s actually Porsha that was trying to keep up with the big spenders this season and apparently she needed some help. I don’t generally endorse may sites about entertainment stuff. But Crazy Days and Nights has a VERY STRONG track record. I don’t believe the rumor that was going around about the African dictator’s son, but Porsha did seem to be seeing someone. And now she is seeing that someone’s friend.  Click through for the sordid details. Continue reading

Below Deck Finale: Bon Voyage, Bitches

Below Deck crew

Here’s hoping this is the last episode of the last season of Below Deck. It’s the last charter and all the crew are at each other’s throats. But never fear, I am sure they will all band together to hate the charter guests the moment they arrive.

As I mentioned before, the casting department had a very rough time booking guests for the charter. It’s expensive, and the boat is full of camera crew and equipment that gets in the way and keeps entire areas of the boat from being accessible. So apparently they asked Slover to come back. The guy who was gifted with the penis blanket arrangement. They were probably desperate enough to give him a substantial discount for the second trip.  This time Slover is bringing a bunch of guys. Captain Lee tells Ben to serve dinner at precisely 8:29. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Sentencing Trial Began Today

Kurt Nurmi has lost a ton of weight and gained a lot of hair.

Kurt Nurmi has lost a ton of weight and gained a lot of hair.

The proceedings began with Judge Stephens excusing a juror due to a family emergency. The defense objected but the juror was replaced. There are 6 men and 12 women on the jury. The judge said the trial is expected to last until December 18th. She also informed the jury that the previous jury found that Travis Alexander was killed in an especially cruel manner and it is up to them to determine a moral and just sentence. Jodi Arias made eye contact with each juror as they walked in. The jury is very engaged and is taking note.

After a brief recess, Kurt Nurmi gave the opening statement for the defense. Kurt is either wearing a wig or has joined the Hair Club for Men as he has a full head of hair!  He described the relationship between Jodi and Travis as one of friendship, lust, passion, spirituality and tragedy. He pointed out they will be seeing lots of very graphic evidence. For some reason he wanted them to know this will include a close-up shot of Jodi’s anus..  Did we see that last time?

Nurmi went on to point out the both Travis and Jodi overcame abusive childhoods.  When they met at a Pre Paid Legal convention Jodi was already beginning to have signs of mental illness. She was young and intelligent but very immature. He says that Jodi as PTSD. She never committed a crime before this. She does not deserve to die. Nurmi’s opening was about 45 minutes.

Juan Martinez comes out swinging ranting about the cruel manner in which Travis was killed. Nurmi objects right away. Nurmi objects four times in the first three minutes of Martinez’s opening statement. Martinez goes into the sex talk about shaved pussies and blow jobs and asking Travis to come on her face. Martinez moves on to premeditation, the rental car, the gas cans, the gun… He describes the murder in detail pointing out that the stabbings did not kill Travis and he was in extreme pain as she killed him in the most cruel manner possible. Martinez goes through all of Jodi’s lies to the police, she wasn’t there, she was there but ninjas tried to kill them. Martinez supposedly has borderline personality disorder, but that is not a mental illness. I can’t believe he said that. I am going from tweets and updates from reporters in the room. Surely they got that wrong. Continue reading

Dina Manzo Says She Will Not Return to Real Housewives of New Jersey


It’s time for Bravo to send out pick up letters to the RHONJ (or thank them for their participation and bid them adieu) and when it comes to Dina Manzo, she says she has no intention of accepting a new contract. Dina posted last night on twitter she has no desire to return to the show because her soul cannot be around all the horrible people. Specifically, when asked if she had any desire to return for another season she replied, @bitchpuuuhlease NONE my soul can’t be around horrible people. — Dina Manzo (@dinamanzo) October 20, 2014

But that’s not all. It seems that Dina is being attacked much like idiots attacked Kenya Moore for her charitable donation to her Detroit Alma Mater, Cass Tech.  The main trash talker against Dina’s Project Lady Bug event is Jim Marchese. Jim posted several libelous comments that have since been taken down since Dina mentioned her attorney would be dealing with Jim. Continue reading

Teresa Giudice Is Facing Hard Time, Camp Cupcake Not Currently on the Table!



As I am sure you have noticed, I’ve become somewhat of a night owl who stays up all night (secretly watching TV shows I don’t talk about here) and sleeping in late. I try to wake up for Wendy Williams at 10 a.m. which would seem a normal time to get up, but I rarely make it. I do tape her, and try to wake up as it plays. This morning Wendy had Teresa Giudice in her hot topics. The tea according to Wendy is that her PR person, Wendy Feldman has dropped her as a client. Interesting but doubtful. Wendy Feldman is a former felon of the same ilk as Teresa who has decided on her release from the pen to make walking other women through the process her job. In doing so, Ms. Feldman sure likes to get her name out there and into all of the tabloids. She seems way more interested in getting her own name out there than cleaning up Teresa’s mess.

If you watched Teresa and Joe on WWHL, it was clear that Teresa in particular was blaming her lawyer for not getting her probation. It should be clearly stated that both Teresa and Joe had fantastic, high profile lawyers who handled their cases quite well. Teresa and Joe on the other hand often ignored the lawyers advice (which included getting off of RHONJ ASAP and lay low.)

Well, “the story” today is that Teresa sent a letter to the judge without consulting Feldman. That’s not what actually  happened. As it turns out, Teresa hired an actual lawyer to help facilitate her assignment of a facility for her prison term. Because of her non-violent first offender status, it was presumed that Tre would go to a minimum security federal site referred to as “camps.” Also, because the judge took the minor children into consideration by staggering the sentence it was assumed that she would recommend either FPC Danbury, CT or  FPC Alderson, WV. Both of these camps are considered the two easiest places for women to serve out their time. Alderson in particular is nicknamed Camp Cupcake due to all the perks the inmates receive.  Danbury is also considered a top choice for its particular amenities. Danbury is where Piper from Orange is the New Black served her time. Martha went to Camp Cupcake.  During court, the judge mentioned both of these as possible placements for Teresa from the bench. However, Teresa’s defense team did not make a specific request for these two options in court. However, when it came time for the judge to put things in writing, things seemed to change. Perhaps the judge was peeved about the continued lying in her court. But for whatever reason, she did not put reference to Danbury or Alderson in her judgment of conviction sent  to the Bureau of Prisons. The wording of the document makes it likely that Teresa will serve her time in MDC Brooklyn or MCC Manhattan. Continue reading
