Univision and NBC Cause International Disaster!

Donald Trump

So every presidential election for the last decade or so, Donald Trump pretends like he is considering running for the presidency. I never really believe he is serious, because, he’s kind of busy running eleventy billion businesses and hosting Celebrity Apprentice. One of his other entertainment enterprises is the Miss USA and Miss Universe Franchise.  Some reports indicate that this enterprise is jointly owned by Trump and NBC. I don’t think that exactly accurate. I believe Trump owns Miss Universe and partnered with NBC for the TV shows.

Which brings us to this year when Trump is actually honest to God running for president.  This meant that Celebrity Apprentice would be on hold until he dropped out.  I can live with that.  But then, Trump said about illegal immigrants ” they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.”  Well, this caused the Hispanic population’s head to explode.  God forbid we mention that the illegal immigrants are committing crimes simply by entering the country illegally, draining our public school systems, burdening our jails, and committing violent crimes.  If you live in the south, anywhere, this is no secret. Apparently, it is not nice to mention that criminals commit crimes. Sure Trump’s delivery sucks, but nothing will win the votes of Texans and Arizona voters like promising to seal the southern border with a big ole wall.

So then Univison who airs the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant in Spanish says they are not going to air it anymore because Trump is a big ole windbag who hates Mexicans.  So now all the people who work on the Spanish version of the show are out of a job, and all the countries with Spanish-speaking representatives in the pageant can’t watch and Univision (and Trump) lose money. Who cares the least about this? Trump. Continue reading

Exclusive Tamara Tattles Tea on RHOA Season 8, And a New Chay Eday Video !

Carlos King, another "friend" of Nene's that is no longer.

Carlos King, another “friend” of Nene’s that is no longer.

I have some curious news, that I have not been sharing about RHOA.  My sources are saying that the reason pickup letters have not gone out yet is because the show has not yet been picked up for another season.  This is not normal.  I do not think it means that we have seen the last of RHOA,  despite the lower ratings this season, the viewership is high enough to pick up another season.  I mean Vanderpump Rules has been picked up and their ratings were not close to RHOA’s ratings even at RHOA’s lowest point.  I believe the hold up is related to production. With Carlos King leaving, whatever the real circumstances are,  there are going to be a lot of changes to production. They may even be considering another production company all together.  There were a lot of audio problems with the reunion, Bravo may decide to make a fresh start.

So, they can’t send out the pickup letters until all of that is resolved.  However, NBCu Cable Upfronts are this week. The parties start tonight and the days are jam packed until Thursday.  Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. is when the NBCu Cable Upfronts will happen.  I assume they will announce the RHOA being picked up then.  Three RHOA will be in attendance, Kenya,  Kandi, and Nene.  It seems those are the only three invited to upfronts.  This means  Phaedra, Claudia, and Cynthia are… not secure in their spots. It’s clear Bravo wants to shake the show up much like they did RHONY a few seasons ago (and we all saw how well that turned out.) Continue reading

The Blacklist

The Blacklist Tom bitch

Just finished this week’s episode. Was that the season finale? Is someone coming to take the fulcrum? Who is the good guy? Tom Keene? Reddington? IS THERE A GOOD GUY?  What does Red want with the assassin lady with all of the disguises. Why did he send Mr. Kaplan, I thought she was simply for body disposal and bloody cleanups?

This is why I don’t recap The Blacklist anymore.  It’s getting too hard to follow for me at times but it’s so good! I can’t tear my eyes away to recap! Continue reading

New WWHL Guest List is Amazeballs!

Andy Cohen

Tonight on WWHL we have Scheana Marie Shay talking Vanderpump Rules, posting alert, I will not be recapping Vanderpump Rules tonight. I still have conflicts with other programming and will recap it tomorrow instead. Also I had a rough day out in the world today and with all my Lent obligations, I should probably not fight the exhaustion and just surrender to sleep soon.

As for the WWHL schedule, I am really excited about the line up. Lisa Rinna will be on tomorrow to talk about the latest episode of Intervention, errrr I meant RHOBH. And if it really is live perhaps we will get some insight about the reunion.

On Wednesday, Jane Lynch will be on and everyone needs to send in questions for her about what it was like to work with Nene. I’m dying to know. Kenya, Derek J and Miss Lawrence will be on when RHOA returns next Sunday.

Mark your Calendars for Monday when two bowls of crazy show up at the same time. It’s Kristen Doute  AND GG Gharachedaghi together. I die. I need this show to be an hour already. Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice Finale: Who Will Win? Leeza or Geraldo?

Celeb Apprentice Leeza Geraldo

I enjoyed Celebrity Apprentice for the most part this season, but I’m ready for the finale because I just have to many things to watch on Monday nights right now. Speaking of scheduling issues, I will be recapping Vanderpump Rules tomorrow instead of tonight. After this show, I’m going to curl up on the coach and listen to the rain (maybe sleet?) and veg out for the night.  Atlanta shut the city down due to potential snow. I’m not sure how it was supposed to snow since it’s been around 40 degrees almost all day, but in Atlanta, we don’t have weathermen anymore. We have SEVERE WEATHER TEAMS  who scare us to death pretty much every week with tornados, and lightning and ice possibilities, etc. They actually now seriously recommend we all don helmets during tornado season. I’m not kidding!  Anyway, I hope those of you with real snow issues are warm and safe! Let’s get on with the show!

Leeza and Geraldo are shown shooting their commercials. Leeza got really lucky with the Jonas kid. He’s running the camera crew like a finely oiled machine.  Meanwhile, over on Team Geraldo, Lorenzo and Geraldo are still measuring their dicks.

Before a commercial break they do a teaser about #PhoneGate so maybe we will see some footage tonight! Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Be Your Own Hero

Celeb Apprentice

The first hour is a list of top fights and other crap from all the seasons. It’s filler. But I’m glad because I am not ready to start recapping. Kenya Moore had the fourth worst campaign of all time with the Hawaiian Buns photobomb with the baby with the bun fetish.  Kenya also came in second in the boardroom backstabbing list.  I suppose these are accomplishments.

Okay, it’s the second hour. Time to watch Vivica Fox get sent home.  Wow, after firing the other team altogether,  Trump still is not done firing people. He is going to fire one of the final three right now. Donald Trump asks Vivica why she should stay. She really has no reason. Leeza and Geraldo are the obvious choice. Even Vivica knows this. Vivica says Leeza is a better competitor she is. Vivica cries again. Vivica has done the hormonal cry every boardroom. Trump fires Vivica. She basically quit. I think we all saw the writing on the wall.

The Final Task: The gang goes to Universal Orlando Resort on Trump’s private jet. They are going to shoot a commercial selling vacation packages.

Leeza and Geraldo are old friends who love each other. Trump’s jet is a bit smaller than I expected. It’s lovely. But I don’t think it’s his main jet. Continue reading

#PhoneGate Is the Celebrity Apprentice Scandal That Will Not Die

celeb apprentice2

Celebrity Apprentice #PhoneGate has not died down on the Internet. This site seems to have become the last safe (sort of) refuge for those who for whatever reasons do not think Kenya sent out the nasty tweets about menopause and Vivica Fox.  Kenya is taking a pretty big drumming for #PhoneGate and I personally think it is because Kenya’s fans wish she would have just owned her evil.  A simple “It is a very cutthroat game. I used everything I could to insure I made it to the end to play for my charity.” or  “after days of very long hours and very little sleep I impulsively sent a tweet on Vivica’s phone to make light of her lack of usefulness on the Hawaiian King task.  I certainly meant no offense to all the hormonal women in the world. And am sorry to all those I insulted.”  Something. Anything that didn’t fly in the face of logic to the degree of ” I didn’t do anything” does.  But she didn’t. That is why the comments here are imploding with debate.

So yesterday she was supposed to do a Q & A on the Celebrity Apprentice Facebook page and hoards of angry menopausal women descended with their claws out.  It was not pretty.  Today  TMZ rolled another story on #PhoneGate including a video of Vivica Fox saying she knows beyond a doubt that Kenya stole her phone and providing her makeup artist as a “witness.”  To be clear it didn’t appear he actually “witnessed” anything.

Also, Geraldo Rivera has blogged about the episode and he is convinced that Kenya is behind the shenanigans. Click through for his take on what went down. Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice: Bud Light Lime Jingle

Celeb Board room

The Task: B.B. King Blues Club.  The client is Anheiser Busch. Create an original jingle for their Lime Margarita malt liquor. Big money this week!  $100K

Team Vortex

Project Manager: Leeza Gibbons

Geraldo Rivera, Vivica Fox, Leeza Gibbons,

Geraldo says Bud Light Lime is big in Latin countries and wants a Latin flair. Leeza has more of a chant in mind. Leeza and Geraldo are butting heads.

The presentation for Vortex went very well. They did a hokey dance and I didn’t see the point of lip syncing when the singers were right there. Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice Task 1 The Phone Stealing Episode!

Celeb Apprentice task

The Task:  The corporate client is King’s Hawaiian. They will be doing a photoshoot and social media blitz. Judging will  be on creativity, originality and brand messaging.


Team Infinity

Brandi Glanville, Leeza Gibbons, Johnny Damon, Ian Zierling

Project Manager: Johnny Damon

They want to talk about slogans. Ian has a lot of slogans. Most of which are too long. Brandi comes up with King’s Hawaiian We Rise to the Occasion.  It’s a good slogan and they go with it. But I can’t help thinking of Brandi’s dirty little mind coming up with the whole “Rise to the occasion” thing.  Ian knows someone with a helicopter who can take aerial shots.

The team gets some great shots of NYC, The Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, etc. Ian is thrilled. Their photos are amazing. Ian continues to pitch his ideas. This team has the best concept overall, but there is no brand messaging. They are supposed to be superimposing the product onto the photos and adding hashtags to promote the brand. They are not using the brand name in the hashtags, their bread products are not easily identifiable. Leeza is pointing this out, but no one is listening. This very good concept is starting to go wrong.

Leeza does most of the presentation. The presentation was weak. The branding was weak. The slogan was good  and the pictures were lovely.  The poor brand messaging could lost the task for them. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Circus Continues.

Nurmi cross examines the bishop.

Nurmi cross examines the bishop.

I didn’t have a chance to cover the trial last Thursday afternoon. I believe Bishop Vernon Parker was called to the stand by Juan. Today Nurmi will have a chance to cross examine him. This is all about the porn on a communal computer at his home that Mark McGee AKA anonymous Witness #1 claims belonged to Travis.  Court started late. Court started with a secret sidebar. Just as it has everyday.

Nurmi starts by asking the bishop about his role in the church. Do people look up to him? The bishop appears uncomfortable on the stand. Nurmi asks why the bishop at some point hired a church lawyer when he was initially questioned. He says that some confessions are confidential and he was not sure what he was legally obligated to disclose.  Nurmi is implying that the bishop was not honest in his testimony. He says guilty people need lawyers. Really? If everyone who has a lawyer is presumed guilty, we don’t even need to have trials.

Nurmi makes it clear that Travis lied to the bishop about being temple worthy when he baptized Jodi because they were having anal sex.

The bishop has made some corrections to the time that Travis lived with him since his original deposition. Nurmi asked him if Juan asked him to change his testimony. The bishop says that he thinks the porn belonged to someone who was staying with him named Jake, not Travis.  However, Nurmi provides evidence that Jake was married at the time that Travis lived there and he could not have been living there at that time. Bishop says he has reason to believe that Jake was the one on the computer. He also testifies that Travis was never on that computer. Nurmi accuses the bishop of lying and yells at him to be honest with his fellow man. By all accounts, Nurmi is being an asshole to the witness.  Apparently other people in the house told him Jake had put the pop up porn on the bishop’s computer. Apparently, after the bullshit affidavit from McGee, someone or several someones came to the bishop and told him is was Jake who put the porn on the computer. Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice Episode #2 If I Throw Someone Under The Bus, It Won’t Be A Surprise, They’ve Got The Bus Schedule!

celeb apprentice2

Kenya is moved to “Geraldo’s Team” as Trump puts it. Finally separating Kenya and Brandi. Vivica wanted Ian and Geraldo wanted Leeza.

The Task:  Trump wants an interactive theme environment for Trump Golf and Hotel resort in Miami. WTF is an interactive theme environment? Trumps boys will judge on creativity, innovation and guest interactions. I have no idea what this task means.

Team Vortex

Geraldo Rivera, Vivica Fox, Kate Gosselin, Kenya Moore

Project Manager: Kate Gosselin

Geraldo has been to the resort ( of course he has) and played the course and it is all about something on the course called “the blue monster.” I dunno maybe a hole with a lot of water challenges?  Geraldo wants the blue monster to be the theme but others feel it may not be upscale enough for Trump.  Kate wants to go with it anyway. Kenya has very definite ideas. Kenya has drawn a set and wants to over see the set production. Something she says she has experience in. But Kenya wants to send Kenya and Vivica shopping like everyone else has done to her.  This already is too many women on a team. I predict a loss with Kate going home before we even start. Kenya points out that  they will be gone a long time while shopping. Kate doesn’t care.

Kenya is aggravated that her skills are not being used. However, at this point, Vivica and Kenya are still getting along. But in Vivica’s talking heads she rewrites history a little bit as if she was always keeping her eye on her. #editing

Geraldo is the bartender making “Blue Monster” drinks. Kenya hates EVERY THING about the set.  Kate stupidly tells Trumps son and the executives about the drama between Kenya and Vivica. If this team loses, Kate is going home. Continue reading

Celebrity Apprentice Episode #1 The Captain Goes Down With The Ship

Team Infinity

Team Infinity

The Task: Host a Circle Line Boat Tour around the city with an original theme and provide the entertainment. The winner will be decided solely on guest feedback.

I titled this episode of Celebrity Apprentice  before watching so if the captain doesn’t go down with the ship, I may have to think of a better title. The official title is ” It’s Like A Booze Cruise With Knowledge.”  Which seems dumb. So hopefully we see a captain go down with their ship. :)  Winner gets $30K

Team Infinity

Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville,  Leeza Gibbons, Johnny Damon, Ian Zierling

Project Manager: Brandi Glanville

Brandi points out that Sig may think he as the advantage because he is the captain, but Sig is not going to be driving the boat. They are basically throwing a party and Brandi certainly knows how to party. When Brandi is passing out tasks she so far has given everyone something to do except for Kenya.  Leeza has a talking head where she talks about her devotion to Brandi. I used to like Leeza. Past tense.  Leeza implies that Kenya wants the team to fail. Brandi asks Kenya if she wants to be in charge of the entertainment and the graphics. Which is pretty much everything. Interesting. Kenya points out those are two very broad things. If they could come up with a theme, that would help her tremendously.  It’s all very polite. And Kenya has Ian who is very pro-Kenya to support her. Leeza talks about Brandi and Ian teaming up against Brandi? Really? How about how they just get along like you do with the trashbox that is Brandi Glanville, Leeza.  Kenya throws out ideas for themes because Brandi seems to have none. Everyone seems to like Mardi Gras Manhattan except for Brandi. Brandi wants the theme to be more New York.  I think she has a valid point. Kenya asks Brandi what charity she is playing for and she says Make A Wish. Kenya compliments her charity and says she wants to make it clear that she is on board and wants to win. Brandi says she doesn’t believe Kenya and thinks she wants to see her go down. Brandi doesn’t get how this game is played. It’s a team effort at this point.

No one wants to be in the boardroom. No. One. As long as they are the same team, they are ON THE SAME TEAM.

Brandi agrees to go to Mardi Gras at first.  But then changes her mind. I agree with Brandi. Brandi goes with Leeza’s idea of Big Apple Bonanza. Whatever that means. It is very NYC focused. Kenya offers to sing her Gone With The Wind Fabulous. Brandi thinks it’s a good idea, because if they lose, she can try to get Kenya fired.

Brandi’s cruise goes well. The entire team is working together. Leeza narrated the cruise very well. Someone says, “It’s like a booze cruise with knowledge.”  Johnny got the band. They are a well oiled machine. They will win.

Kenya sings her Gone With The Wind Song! Everyone twirls. It was way over the top. She lies on the deck and does pelvic thrusts. A parent literally covers her child’s eyes. If they lose, Kenya is gone. Brandi recovers with a congo line.
