66, 68, 80… – The Amazing Race 6, Episode 3

by LauraBelle This was one of those episodes of Amazing Race that by the end, you just look, and think how DID they do it? The challenges weren’t necessarily difficult, yet demanding nonetheless. It made me weary just watching it, then again, that could be attributed to the two-hour elementary Christmas sing I endured just before. The nine teams remaining in the race are set to depart Norway with Kris and Jon leading the way at 2:47 in the morning. The teams will need to [...]

Captain Swan and Tooth Decay

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos I must say that each week this series gets better and better. Oh yes! The stories get sobbier and the women get more plastic. The two contestants were Delisa S and Lorraine N. Delisa is a Captain in the Army Reserve. She grew up in East Texas (poor girl! Anna Nicole Smith is from East Texas…poor Delisa!) Delisa received sun damage to her skin in exchange for her service in Desert Storm. She admits that she doesn’t feel feminine. Her [...]

Fierce Conversations – Starting Over

by LauraBelle Familial bonds are worth holding onto, and worth every bit of effort needed to succeed. It can be difficult to submit ourselves to the emotions of the work involved, but the result is always worth it. As the show opens, we are still waiting on Kim’s decision – whether she will stay for the hard work, or take the easy way out and quit the show, joining her husband on a fourteen-day Mediterranean cruise. Iyanla has given her an ultimatum– stay and commit [...]

Vengeance Is Mine – Survivor: Vanuatu, Episode 11

by LauraBelle As the popular cliche says, there are no guarantees in life. Surely that holds for reality shows over anything else. With Chris the last surviving man on Vanuatu, we knew it didn’t look good for him, but we refused to give up hope. The survivors were barely back at camp after the last Tribal Council that ousted Chad, before they were pointing fingers and second-guessing the others. Chris opened up his mouth first and outed Scout and Twila for the alliance. He wants [...]

Getting The Edge on The Competition – The Apprentice 2, Episode 12

by aurora Last week on The Apprentice, Kelly was sent over to Apex and the teams were assigned to create an in-store catalog for Levi’s. Apex won the task hands-down, largely due to a ‘fit wheel’ created by Ivana. Ivana was angered when Jen took credit for her creation, leading Trump to congratulate her on her performance on the task. While Apex enjoyed their reward – a visit with Billy Joel – Mosaic headed to the boardroom where Maria and Wes blamed each other for [...]

American Idol – Home for the Holidays

by Panndyra (Note to my readers – Help me! I’m stuck in hostile territory – I’m at the in-laws for Thanksgiving!) I must say that when I offered to do this review I had high hopes for the show. What’s not to love – Ruben, Kelly and Fantasia – the three American Idols, singing holiday classics. The title suggested that there would be holiday music. There wasn’t much of that however. From the beginning of the first song, I felt like I should’ve been watching [...]

There's Something About Mary – The Bachelor 6, After The Final Rose

by LauraBelle Out of all the Bachelor/Bachelorette series they have had to date, the only relationship that stuck in the end has been that of Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter who parlayed that success into a televised wedding. The extremely romantic ending to this year’s Bachelor series leaves us optimistic for yet another success story. Chris opens the show introducing Mary Delgado first. He asks Mary if it was better this time, and she says absolutely. They go back and discuss that night when Mary [...]

Alma Gemela – The Bachelor 6, Episode 9

by LauraBelle Byron’s mom, Joan, is a very astute woman. The first thing she notices about Byron’s two love interests, Mary and Tanya, are that they are both very secure with themselves. Both of these women are drop-dead gorgeous, so for anyone to look past that upon first notice is poignant. Secondly, she tells Byron after meeting both of the women, that they both have all the traits he is looking for in a woman, but they will take him on different paths. He just [...]

captainD's Boot Prediction – Survivor Vanuatu, Episode 11

As Thanksgiving approaches it’s time to count all of the things we are thankful for: friends, family, and lesbian life-partners. Oddly enough, all of these will be on display Thursday on the unusual Thanksgiving Day episode of Survivor. Since the beginning of the season in early September, only three women have been voted off. Compare that to the eight men who have been voted off already and that leaves you with a very one-sided game. As everyone knows, I picked a male contestant to win [...]

Flippant Remarks and The New Woman – Starting Over

by LauraBelle When new women enter the Starting Over house, the plasma screen will show an empty staircase, and at the top, their goal is stated. I think it’s unfair to have their steps be totally empty. If they are in the house, if these women have even crossed the threshold, this means they have really filled their first step. They have admitted to themselves that they have a problem that needs to be addressed. A new woman, a very bold new woman, enters the [...]
