Apparently, Life With Latoya started up a new season last Saturday. OWN doesn’t really do a great job of letting bloggers know this information. One thing I can say about NBCu is they send me a PR email everyday with the latest goings on. Other networks could take notice and perhaps this blog would not be so NBCu heavy on the reporting.
Life with Latoya is a funny, fake little non-reality show that is really not worth recapping. However, I admit to being somewhat duped by the past season where it was obvious to everyone with eyes that Latoya’s business partner, Jeffre, had feelings for her. His overly-plucked, drawn on eyebrows told the tale. But on the show, Latoya was once again “learning to break out of her shell” in her mid-fifties by doing some online dating. Continue reading
Due to Scandal and The Challenge: Free Agents this show somehow got bumped last night so I am watching it first thing this morning. First of all, once again it was not a live show. The show was filmed on Wednesday night. I don’t understand why Andy wanted a live show, and now rarely actually films live. I do understand it in this case through because who knows if Lindsay would even show up and then Andrew would be talking to himself for half an hour. As it was, rumor has it Lindsay was fashionably late to the taping.
Let us pause to reflect on Lindsay’s ensemble. She is wearing some sort of steel crown a la Games of Thrones on her head. Her chosen article of clothing is a white long-sleeved lace mini dress. It’s see-through so she paired it with a black bra and black ankle boots. It’s…..an interesting look.
Lindsay says she and her mom are both Team Vanderpump and she loves Vanderpump Rules. Andy peed himself a little bit. OMG! The most exciting thin is that Assistant Matt is the bartender! And there is indeed a bar, but it is only for the audience. Andy has opted to abstain in front of Lindsay. But there is a drinking word! The drinking word is “fetch.” Continue reading
We’re back with Oprah at Dina Lohan’s house. Oprah wants to talk to Dina alone. After a brief chat, Oprah lays down the law for Lindsay. She is to keep her schedule or Oprah is pulling the show.
Thankfully, Matt is agreeing to stay because frankly, he makes the show. The apartment is still an utter shit hole. It’s like a hoarder house with clothes and shoes and handbags stacked sky-high in every room and hallway. Lindsay is not up yet, but Hollie, Matt and her trainer are already slaving away trying to get things together. Production has purchased a ton of hangers and clothing racks to try to get everything organized. Continue reading
Have y’all been watching the Lindsay Lohan reality show on OWN? I know it comes on Sunday nights and that is a super busy night for everyone’s DVR but it’s really worth trying to see if you can. The great part about it for me is it’s actually a real reality show. There is no scripted bullshit. I like that they acknowledge they are being filmed. I’m about to watch the third episode and I thought I’d give you little bit of feedback.
First, Lindsay has a young male assistant who runs her life for her. It appears to a very trying job. Lindsay spent the first month or so of filming living in a hotel and trying to lease an apartment. It seems that her assistant literally does everything from waking her up to dealing with her real estate agent. He is also the go between for production. On the last episode he was the main person on the show as he was tasked with telling the camera crew that Lindsay could not be bothered to get out of bed and film. His name is Matt and he’s a saint.
I’ve been watching, but not blogging quite a few good shows lately so I thought it was time for a top ten list. Only I only have 8 shows. So, a top eight list. Lets get right to it.
Number 8: Kim of Queens Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
Kim Gravel is the owner of The Pageant Palace. She collects misfit girls and attempts to make them her “pageant pros.” It’s NOT Toddlers and Tiaras. The girls are older and Kim and her sister Allisyn Varalla make most of the costume choices for all of the girls. Then pageant moms are almost as bad as the Dance Moms but there is less conflict between the moms and more berating of their own child. Kim and Allisyn are hilarious. It’s much more light-hearted than I make it sound. The major negative aspect of the show is that the “misfit girls” they pick up are obvious plants for the most part. The “hillbilly girl” is actually a pageant pro for example and is playing a part. Still, it’s a fun show to DVR and watch on a Saturday morning.
Number 7: Dance Moms Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Lifetime
I actually do try to recap this show when I can. It has been around long enough that you have probably made a decision about it already. If you think Abby Lee is a horrible person (I love her) then don’t bother giving it a second look. This show is one of the more “real” reality shows out there. Abby really dislikes most of the dance moms. This season Kelly (Brooke and Paige’s mom) actually attacked Abby at an open audition for “replacements” in NYC. Abby pressed charges and they recently went to court. It remains to be seen if Paige and Brooke are still on the show. Meanwhile, Nia is rapidly advancing her team rank with great performance.
Number 6: Real World EXplosion Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on MTV
My obsession with reality TV began with the very first episode of the Real World. I love people watching and this was a great glimpse into the lives of people who were at the time in my age group, living I NYC. More than 20 years later, I can’t stop watching. This season the show returns to San Francisco with a twist. After the seven strangers move in and start hooking up, their exes arrive to move in to the house. There is a lesbian couple that didn’t really seem broken up in the first place. They should be fine. But the token hot head guy hooked up quickly with a brash blond as “friends with benefits” and neither of their exes is happy with the relationship. The exes arrive in the next episode, so it’s a good time to start watching. Continue reading
