Hoses and Poles and Sandi, Oh My: Queer Eye For The Straight Girl Episode 1.10

by Christina M. Rau/GatsbyGirl Sandi is a firefighter who works with 30 men. Wow. A few years ago, this is what I would have thought heaven was. Let’s just say I had a slight obsession with firemen. (Yes, firemen. Not women. Hence, my use of the politically incorrect term. It’s not incorrect when you’re talking about just the one gender.) As in, I dated some of them. And I may have made out with a few between the ones I dated. Maybe like six. And [...]

I'm not your #*@%! Friend. I'm the #*@%! Starlet! – The Starlet – Episode 4

by Chloe Tempers are short and nerves are frayed. The house of the lovelies is divided. Katie has finally snapped the thin thread of camaraderie between her and the other starlet wannabes. In a bold move, Katie calls a meeting of the lovelies in the bedroom. She opens the meeting with the suggestion that they no longer cultivate a friendship amongst themselves.

Big J, little j, What Begins with J? Next Week’s Loser! – Nashville Star 3, Episode 4

by Lisa As often happens when a group of people start spending way too much time together, the contestants are apparently passing around a nasty bug. It was feared to be strep, but turned out to just be a garden-variety sore throat. Despite the ailments mentioned by various contestants throughout the show, this turns out to be a really strong night of performances. And for the first time, it is not so obvious who is likely to get the ax next week. Sara Evans is [...]

Shame – Let It Go To Waste – Starting Over, 03-22-05

by LauraBelle Today’s episode of Starting Over was a special one dealing with shame. Cassie has been feeling particularly shameful of late, so Dr. Stan, Iyanla and Rhonda brought back some past Starting Over graduates to help learn ho they dealt with their shame. Dr. Stan explains shame by saying it feeds on secrecy, and controls our lives. He says you can only feel shamed by your secret until you release it. Along with this comes self-loathing and feeling ashamed of who you are. After [...]

Someone Get Mikalah, Anwar, And Nikko A Map – American Idol, 03-22-05

by LauraBelle This week’s American Idol theme is Number One Billboard Hits. This opens it up for everyone to be able to express themselves and show something of themselves they have been waiting to show. Most succeed in showing exactly why they are in the final eleven, but some are still struggling to show us what they have been trying to show us for the past few months. Anthony Federov starts us off singing I Knew You Were Waiting, a song from 1987, that he [...]

Born With A Horseshoe Right Up My … – Amazing Race7 , Episode 4

by LauraBelle It seems to me with Rob and Amber, you either love them or hate them. I have liked Rob during both of his seasons on Survivor, and like him even more here. But reading message boards, I can see not everyone agrees. You have to give him props, though. For being that ballsy and cunning, and having fate with him week after week after week. Lynn and Alex, at 3:49 AM, are the first to leave the pit stop in Mendoza, Argentina, and [...]

captainD's Boot Prediction – Survivor Palau, Episode 6

by captainD Welcome back to week six of Survivor: Palau. Now one-third of the way through, this season remains impressive. The double tribal council was a great excuse to get rid of Willard, and now Koror is as strong as ever. As promised by Jeff there will be no early merge, so the fate of the remaining Ulong’s rest in their own hands. Can they finally come through? This week we have a military shooting type reward challenge that will test our survivors accuracy. Koror [...]

There Is So Much Healing Going On Here – Starting Over, 03-21-05

by LauraBelle Every day when I’m searching for a title for these Starting Over recaps, I want to call it something hat has to do with healing, but I resist so that the title isn’t the same every day. Today’s title wasn’t spoken about the Starting Over house (although it very well could have been), but instead the memorial service for Rachael’s parents. Iyanla and Rachael meet over breakfast in Vallejo, California, Rachael’s hometown. Rachael says she knows if Iyanla can make her laugh she’ll [...]

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend – The Contender, Episode 4

Last episode, we saw Ahmed Kaddour defeated at the hands of our favorite bad guy Ishe Smith. “The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend” starts out with the aftermath of the Smith versus Kaddour match. “My cancer is gone, I beat him,” Smith smiles. He relates how he’s going to be celebrating Ahmed being gone rather than his victory. He goes back to the lockeroom beat up, bruised and prays for being blessed to win the fight. He comes back to the suite to [...]
