“You’re No Donald Trump!” – The Apprentice 3, Episode 5

“You’re No Donald Trump!” – The APPRENTICE 3, Episode 5 By: Cori Linder clinder@realityshack.com He believed he was the less expensive version of Donald Trump, but would this cost Michael everything and lead to a poor standing with the billionaire? When the Net Worth team members return to the suite, nobody—especially Audrey—seems to miss Kristen. Audrey unleashes her anger towards Kristen, saying that she (Audrey) is a nice person until you cross her. I become immediately grateful that I am not near an intersection. It’s [...]

Discovering Information – Starting Over, 02-16-05

by LauraBelle Today is a day where some of the women hope to find out information they have been waiting for. Denise will have to keep waiting, and Rachael is shocked. Bethany is delighted to finally have at least a morsel of the information she has waited four years for. Iyanla meets with Rachael so early that Rachael is still in her bathrobe. Of course, she also has the purple throw draped around her shoulders, as usual. She is anchored and grounded, waiting for information [...]

I See Dead People's Ashes! – The Simple Life 3, Episode 3

Simple Life – Episode 3 Sitting in their bus seats, Nicole and Paris are looking a bit worn this go ‘round as the bus driver introduces herself and stresses that there is no smoking on board. Yes, this was a big clue as to what to expect from this week’s show.

The Very Unnecessary Make-Over of Kristen: Queer Eye for the Straight Girl Episode 1. 6

–Christina M. Rau/GatsbyGirl The Gal Pals climb on into the SUV once again to make over a down-on-her-luck straight girl. Only this time, the straight girl really doesn’t need a make-over at all and there’s really no reason to have her on the show other than to televise her wedding and give her a lot of free stuff. Kristen is a thirty-four year old Irish-Italian-Catholic. She has what Danny calls a “Brad Pitt Boyfriend.” His name is Peter and he’s from Copenhagen. That’s in Denmark, [...]

Who Is To Blame – American Idol

by LauraBelle Just who is to blame? Who is to blame for the double standard of heavier or unattractive females not being allowed on American Idol, but the heavier or unattractive males are? The girls are told they have a great voice, yet have an “image problem.” The boys aren’t told this, and are allowed to continue. Some blame Simon Cowell for the record companies he represents, but I wonder if the blame doesn’t go much deeper. The only man to have won American Idol [...]

Love Each Other Through All Our Junk – Starting Over, 02-15-05

by LauraBelle I love it when Iyanla calls Candy by her full given name, Katrinda. It just seems to lead more towards her feminine side she’s searching for. To reach that side, however, she still has some work ahead of her to be able to let go. Candy and Denise, polar opposites that they are, start their day in completely different ways. Candy is curled up reading, and Denise is putting on her makeup. The doorbell rings, and it’s Rhonda carrying a bag and looking [...]

American Idol Final 24! 2/16/2005

by Annie Tonight is the night that the judges will be choosing the final 24. Randy, Paula and Simon review tapes of the remaining contestants’ previous performances. It’s not made clear what criteria they use to further determine who will and won’t stay – but the decisions are in. Tensions run high as the contestants wait in a holding room with no idea how long they will be there or in what order they will be called. After Ryan Secrest gives us a tour of [...]

captainD's Boot Prediction – Survivor Palau, Episode 1

I’m back! After a slightly longer off-season than usual, everyone’s favorite Prognosticator is back on the case. The number of castaways has been bumped up again (this time to a record 20), and there are absolutely no spoilers to go by as of yet. However, thanks to CBS and a TV Guide special, I have been able to piece together the two tribes: KOROR (brown buffs) – Coby, Caryn, Gregg, Ian, Janu, Jennifer, Katie, Tom, Willard ULONG (blue buffs) – Angie, Ashlee, Bobby Jon, Ibrehem, [...]

Omigod! It's Charles Manson! Or Is It Brud?: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Episode 3.5

Yet another round of make-over madness as the Fab Five…wait a minute…Okay, no recap of the tease tonight because my cable box has decided to not change channels at 10 PM and I tried to manually change it from Dr. Phil’s Romance Rescue on Channel 2 to Bravo on 44 but somehow the box got stuck on Channel 4 and I couldn’t switch it. Meanwhile, my friend who had watched Dr. Phil with me was cackling on the couch because she loves to see me [...]

Nail-Biting Tension – American Idol, 02-15-05

by LauraBelle The rule changes enacted this year on American Idol have apparently been made to cause more drama – lots more drama. By the end of tonight’s show we find there will be one more obstacle before getting to live performances – they will be sent to the chair. At the beginning of the show, I begin to wonder if they are showing tomorrow’s show by accident, as they started out showing us all seventy-five remaining contestants broken into four groups. After each performed [...]
