Today's news may not be Earth-shattering, but it's better than getting a Lyle Lovett haircut or rapping "Ice Ice Baby" on national television.
What do you think a younger version of Sex and the City produced by Judd Apatow would look like? Well for one, the annoying and boring Miranda wouldn't be one of the friends...
I am So. Effing. Excited. For this new show called Queen Bees premiering tonight on The N. It's a reality show that Videogum describes perfectly as a hybrid of Mean Girls and Intervention: seven self-described Queen Bees (or Queen B's for betch, more like) are thrown into a house together and all manner of experts attempt to rehab them and rid them of their diva ways. The B who comes out most changed by the experience gets your standard prize money, which I'm sure she will totally donate to like AmFar or something and not spend on sparkly eyeliner and t-shirts declaring that they are princesses who are going to steal your boyfriend. There is a ten-minute clip up on The N's website and it is ah-may-zing. After I watched it, I simply could not contain my joy. Can I share some thoughts with you, fair readers? Good! I was hoping you'd say that!
Besides all the weight-loss shows, the dance shows, the cake shows, the multiple-births shows and the washed-up-celebrities-date-skanks shows, there is another reality genre that surpasses them all: the depressing-as-all-hell genre. Here are the top 10 reality shows that make us cry into our Häagen-Dazs on a regular basis.
As a long time Kristin Chenoweth hater, it is with great anguish that I type this next sentence: Kristin Chenoweth's musical parody of A&E's Intervention over at Funny or Die is not only not annoying, it's also actually pretty funny, even though she's starring in it and singing a song with that elf soprano voice of hers. But then again, who isn't wildly entertaining while singing about gay prostitutes who find their johns through Craig's List to score meth? (Tip to all the hookers out there: Finding your john through Craig's List erases the need for an abusive, money-stealing pimp. Don't ask me how I know, I just know.) Delightful musical clip after the jump, Broadway and meth junkies!
