I really loved season two of Married at First Sight. Of all of the couples, I was really pulling for Jessica and Ryan who were the youngest of the shows three couples. Just last Tuesday, part one of a two part finale was shown. After six weeks of marriage, the couples had to decide whether to stay married or file for divorce. Jessica and Ryan were one of two couples who said the wanted to stay married.
Despite significant ups and downs and Ryan’s somewhat explosive temper at times, but by the time decision day rolled around they were in a good place and both seems determined to have a happy life together. Jessicia did says she had some concerns that Ryan might revert back to his angry, mean self, but it really seemed more like drama for the obvious happy ending than anything else. Continue reading
2) Yankees cooking in disposable aluminum. Aluminum is Satan. Alzheimer’s, Carcenogic, and most importantly, tacky.
3) Vapid fake blondes.
4) A VERY long infomercial for the cosmetic surgeon.
5) If you are going to be a fake blond, on a reality show, GET YOUR ROOTS DONE before filming.
6) You don’t have to be smart or pretty to be a gold digger on Long Island, it seems.
7) I’m Bored.
8) Horrific wardrobes. Hot pink dresses and black nail polish?
9) Tacky. So Tacky.
10) Yankees. Continue reading
Someone doing some PR for this show drove me batshit for a week or so. I kindly agreed to promote it and hoped that I could get some good pictures that would help me preprepare. I asked for no compensation. Then suddenly I felt like I had a boss. I am the boss. I might have sent someone a stern letter. I really don’t do well with some of these collaborations. :) Bless her heart.
Anyway, I love these shows. And I have some strong feelings about the “stars.” Let’s get too it. The first paragraph of each couple is From the PR for the show.
Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett
Life was perfect for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett until a tabloid scandal tainted their happy household. They had a beautiful child with one more on the way, when Hank made a decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life. Now, Hank is trying everything in his power to get their lives back on track. Marital troubles can be hard on any couple but add the constant pressure of the tabloids and social media and that’s a recipe for disaster. Will Kendra be able to forgive Hank and move on with the rest of their lives?
I loved The Girls Next Door with Hugh Hefner’s three girlfriends. But at that time Kendra was not my favorite. She was very young and that was part of it. I have watched all of her shows afterward and come to have a soft spot for her and Hank. That said, they have dragged the transgender affait thing, all over their own show. There is no need to keep televising this shit. They are doomed to fail. They are the only married couple on the show. I have a feeling this was taped BEFORE their show. But it is kind of hard to say.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino & Lauren Pesce
Long before reality TV came into the picture, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce were college sweethearts. The couple took a hiatus from their relationship and went their separate ways. Mike found fame in the blockbuster reality TV series Jersey Shore and the acquaintance of many, many women. Unfortunately, the dark side of stardom got the better of him as addiction reared its ugly head in the process. After getting clean and sober Mike and Lauren rekindled their relationship, however Lauren is struggling with the possibility he could relapse. Can a bad boy really change or will old ways and bad habits leave her to pick up the pieces?
Lauren needs to RUN from Mike. I think that Lauren my just be humoring Mike and they are not really dating anymore and just there to get a paycheck. Continue reading
This is Chitara
Tonight it is a Lesbian Catfish! Chitara is the one who wrote in because she has a catfish named Priscilla. Priscilla dumped her. Priscilla is supposed to be a nurse who also lives in her town of Durham. Priscilla dumped her and said it was all lies and she never loved her. Priscilla is SUPER hot. So it’s most likely that Priscilla is not the chick in the photo. I’m guessing Priscilla is a big fat dude with a two-inch penis. Chitara is bisexual so ….perhaps there is still hope. Oh wait. They talked on the phone every night. It was a six month relationship. Priscilla claims her mother passed. Then she said she was into a guy.
So off Nev and this Alex dude go to Durham, North Carolina. The south seems to have a whole lot more catfish. I’m just saying. Chitara is really pretty and Priscilla’s online photos are like modeling photos. Alex is a goober. Being Max is not as easy as Max makes it look.
SIDE NOTE: Finding Carter Season Two Premiers next Tuesday at Ten on MTV. I strongly recommend binge watching season one. The first episode is sort of meh but it gets really good. And season two looks amazeballs. The truth is going to tear me apart? I don’t want to be told apart. BUT I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS! FYI Finding Carter is a scripted show about a twin girl who is kidnapped very young and is eventually reunited with her real family in high school. She loves her mom the kidnapper but comes to accept her new family….UNTIL….
The boys figure out that Priscilla has another fake profile where she talks to herself and pretends like they video chatted. Chitara is such a nice girl. I’m glad that Tee Cee is not reading this because I can think of 20 mean things she would say about Chitara’s name. But she is the mean yankee and I am the nice demure southern girl. Continue reading
Max, you better come back for your man!
The guest host is Tyler Oakley is an LBGT advocate on Instagram. Nev says that makes him the best choice for this episode. This leads me to believe that Marcus ain’t a man already because they have already shown us Daisy. They are giving us way too much information on these episodes this season.
Daisy writes in and says she “met” a super hot guy on Instagram who helped her throw some hard times. But they have never spoken on the phone. Well, I haven’t talked to a lot of my Internet friends on the phone, but I’m pretty sure about their gender. Daisy is an odd duck. She has had two close deaths in her family. Her eyes seem to be crazy. Nev says he is pretty sure already that Marcus is a chick. So when the guys get there to find out her story she says she had a sister die in a car accident. Then she starts talking about how her dad died by telling a story about her dating a girl. The family had a fit because of the same sex relationship. Apparently the father “dropped dead from a stroke and an aneurism” at home when the rest of the family took her to see her girlfriend. This all seems like a sack of horseshit to me. I say Marcus will be the girlfriend and they are both in on the con. Daisey doesn’t have the right demeanor for the story she is telling. Tyler on the other hand looks like he is so sad listening to this story he may open a vein. I think Daisy may have drawn her eyebrows on with a magic marker. Daisy is cute enough but she has some major issues and none of them have to do with dead family members.
Okay, now the mother and one sister is on camera, they are really odd. The mother is Colombian and let’s just say she is not very loving to her daughter. Now I am feeling sorry for her. Then Nev and Tyler tell her that she is probably texting the dude’s mother. Nothing is going well in this poor girls life. Continue reading
Here are the season two cast.
I am so behind on recapping this week. I promise Dance Moms and Catfish and more are in the pipeline. Things are just a bit busy around here today. But first let’s go to those lovely ladies from down under, the Real Housewives of Melbourne. NOW IN PRIMETIME!
They are only doing the previews and I’m already thrilled with this episode!
We start the season with Lydia driving her convertible down by the water. I forget why we don’t like Lydia. I think perhaps she was too pretentious last season for some of you. I have to say, she won my heart by flying to a cheese shop. If there is anything worth cranking up the private jet for in my book, it’s good cheese.
Everyone loves Chyka. Can she do any wrong this season? I love Chyka, her husband Bruce and their cute hospitality business. Continue reading
As the Real Housewives of Melbourne prepares to return for a second season, Gina Liano opened up to New Idea Magazine exclusively to discuss the reality of Reality TV. Despite being a huge fan favorite when the first season aired, the filming was particularly difficult on Gina. It seemed that lost of the ladies thrived on ganging up on Gina because they were intimidated by her superior intellect. Things got pretty ugly on the show. All the stress took a toll not only on Gina but her two adult sons as well. Because of her previous fight with cancer, the boys were very concerned that the stress might trigger a relapse. Thankfully, last season’s nastiest cast mate, Andrea Moss won’t be back for season two. Two new cast member are being brought in and Gina has previously told the media that while there is a lot of drama in season two, but that she is not in the center of the storm. Continue reading
I thought since there was not much interesting in the news, I could either make up a really funny story about interns crawling through Teresa Giudice’s secret trap door or we could just sort of free ball it and pretend we are all out at happy hour somewhere talking about crap we watch on TV.
So last night, was the finale of Survivor (SPOILERS AHEAD). First of all I have watched every single episode of every single season of Survivor. This was one of the most boring seasons ever. I was NONE TO PLEASED to see those annoying Indian twins on this episode. I could not stand them on The Amazing Race. (which I think ends tonight. Don’t spoil me.). But once they got split up, I started to really like Natalie all by herself. She was very good at endurance challenges and fairly crafty. Did you watch? What did you think of the season, and the winner?
Also, last night was The Taste I mostly watch for Anthony Bourdain. We had Master Chef Junior, (just ended), were you surprised who won? Also Hell’s Kitchen (also just ended) same question , and Top Chef all at once. I’m pretty sure there has been a Branzino on each one. Same with cauliflower puree. There must have been a dozen recipes that were done on all the shows. Anyway, I’d like to talk about Nigella Lawson. She got into some troubles in the tabloids recently, Go here to read it looks like a Jodi Arias post but it isn’t. Just skip the first paragraph. At the time I sort of didn’t believe the allegations but after watching her on The Taste for a couple seasons, I’m curious what y’all…especially my UK readers…have to say about her. Continue reading
I’ve been wanting to watch this but had to wait so I had time to recap. I’m still a bit under the weather. So I’m just going to do a quickie. I’m a bit sleep deprived and cranky so don’t expect much.
Jackie talks about her psychic abilities. And we get a montage of the stupid Shine, Shine, Shine crap. It’s fucking annoying.
Oh God. Now it is Lydia’s turn with her Wows and illiterate comments and butchering of the English language. Lydia is trying to explain her stupidity. The dumb host keeps saying how cute her nonsensical blatherings are.
We’re back and the little troglodyte is on the couch next to his psychic wife. I could care less what he is saying. They play a montage of Jackie talking about how much everything costs.
Lydia’s dog came on the set. WordPress magically shut down. I took this as a sign I could lie down, but decided to power through. We’re almost halfway through and nothing has happened. Continue reading
This reunion seems a bit cooler than US reunions in the beginning. They show all the ladies coming in to the dressing rooms with out make-up. What was on Janet’s face. Why is their hair wet? Janet talks about how bad things have gotten in the press. The announcer says something like “And now the reunion that the whole of Australia has been waiting for…” And then we see the gaudiest set ever. It’s like a living room with way too much crap in it and the Australian Andy Cohen is a bald dude of ambiguous ethnicity wearing sunglasses on his head. Gina clearly scored the best designer to dress her. Her dress is stunning and her makeup is of a color found in nature but her legs remain orange. Janet’s dress looks like she forgot to bring anything to wear and tied a tablecloth under her arms and went with it.
Chyka says she loves everything about filming the housewives. Janet says that she lives in some boondocks area or something and is sheltered from all the public recognition. Jackie has not been doing as many reading because she is busy supporting Ben’s career now. Um, didn’t Ben’s career end in like 1984? The host asks about her reading in the first episode about someone cheating and they seem to be talking about Gina’s boyfriend, sorry, Potnah, already. Gina seems to be deflecting to the other couch where Lydia and Andrea are seated next to Chyka.
Lydia’s face is twice as wide as it used to be. I’m not even sure how that is surgically possible. Andrea is asked about how she is dealing with the press, AKA the fact that everyone hates her. She rambles on about Twitter and how she talks to trolls to enlighten them that they have their facts wrong and most everyone loves her once she does that. That sounds exhausting. Does Twitter not have a block button down under? Continue reading
