You Win Five Pounds of Lard! – The Biggest Loser, Premiere

by aurora Welcome to The Biggest Loser, where the person who loses the most weight becomes the biggest winner. Or, as the announcer introduces us to the show, “These 12 people have one thing in common: They’re Fat.” Way to be subtle there. Already I’m feeling sorry for the contestants, and we haven’t even met them yet. In the opening shots, we see the twelve contestants walking down a path, while hearing sound clips from each one. Lisa says it’s hard being overweight because you’re [...]

Grandma Never Wears Tight-AssClothes Like You Do

It’s fashion week, people. Victoria, the ultimate clothes horse, is in her glories. They do say that Fashion Week in NYC is like the Superbowl (at least, in some circles– not mine, though!) Victoria’s publicist – Matt Rich – wants Victoria to take part in the festivities. She’s intrigued by the idea, but is sort of put-off by how short the dress that the designer of the Rosita & DiSarno line, which wants her to model for them, is. The boys are also wanted by [...]

Random Acts of Kindness – The Benefactor, Episode 5

[i]by atarus[/i] We start off the episode as we left last time, Dominic is the person that is left out, he’s having a long night, and most everybody thinks he’s going to be eliminated. Mark gets the group together, and asks what the teams are. Linda and Spencer say that they teamed up right away, because they had worked together well before. In a voice-over, Mark states that Spencer was probably feeling desperate and wanted an alliance since he would have been eliminated last round. [...]

Barnyard Follies – Starting Over, 10/18/04

10/18/04 Towanda is tidying up the house in anticipation of her husband’s visit. She thinks he’ll be excited to see the changes in her. Sinae is telling Sommer she thinks she (Sinae) is overweight. (Why do skinny girls always DO that to fat girls!) Sommer narrates that it always makes her wonder, when a skinny girl thinks they’re fat, what must they be thinking about her? The women all meet in the loft, Sinae in cornrows, and Towanda is giddy at the prospect of seeing [...]

Ryan Is A Little Bitchy – The Surreal Life 3, Episode 7

by LauraBelle On American Idol Ryan Starr was known to get very defiant about her rock music. When Simon Cowell didn’t like her version of “You Really Got Me” she said, “Of course you don’t like it. You like pop, not rock music.” After she was voted out, she would sit behind Simon and make faces at his comments. Some of her behavior could be explained by her being very young, yet the whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth over the type [...]

Boot Camp – The X-Factor, October 9th

by Luke ATTENTION! With the end of the audition process last week it’s time for the boot camp stage of “The X-Factor”. This is where all the acts that got the thumbs up during the first round attend a two day workshop where only 15 will survive. Five will come from Simon Cowell’s camp who are all aged 25 and over, five more from Sharon Osbourne’s crew – under 25 years, and the last five from Louis Walsh’s crew – they’d be the vocal groups. [...]

The Biggest Loser – A Preview

The show premieres this Tuesday, October 19th, at 8pm ET. The show is hosted by Caroline Rhea, formerly of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and The Caroline Rhea Show.

Low-Down on LCS 3 – Finale

I broke down and watched. I had to. I wanted to see how this drama played itself out. I set my DVR and vowed that I would not dare watch it when it came on. Well, I had nothing better to do. It was 7pm on a Saturday night. I know that’s sad, but I have two children and well, I’ll let them watch this. The agitta was building as the music came on. I was grateful that the sponsor was Rolaids because I would [...]

Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On – Survivor: Vanuatu, Episode 5

[i]by atarus[/i] You will have to forgive me if this recap isn’t as detailed as usual. The gods of reality TV conspired against me in many ways to erase notes and keep me from viewing the episode a second time. All of the following recap is done from memory. Soooo yeah. Let’s roll. We start off the episode with the most pointless and inane Survivor argument ever. Bubba and Chad are arguing over the prime real estate of Vanuatu. No, they weren’t arguing about who [...]

She must have been told ahead of time what is in store because she states that she doesn’t want to bring out mistakes with her grandmother today. Towanda is ready to submit the first chapter of her autobiography. Iyanla tells her to “perfrom it”, and she does read it with more enthusiasm than [...]
