It's a slow yet kind of hilarious day for TV news.
Good afternoon and welcome to your Friday TWOP News: pre-Oscars edition. I'm sure you've all started your second-by-second Oscar countdowns, painstakingly viewed all the Best Documentary Short and Sound Mixing nominees in order place your bets most effectively, and made a shopping excursion to purchase the themed snacks you will begin eating when red carpet coverage starts at approximately 3 AM (Milk Duds, anyone?)...oh wait, that's just me? Hmmm... hmmm. While I wrap my mind around that, go ahead and wrap your minds around these delicious Friday news bites.
In response to some rumors to the contrary, TLC has announced that they have no plans to include Jon Gosselin's alleged girlfriend Deanna Hummel in future episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8, pretty much just to spare us the grossness of it all, which is awfully kind of them. Other shows should be that considerate. Here are a few suggestions for reality stars we wouldn't mind seeing relegated to behind-the-scenes-only action on our favorite shows from now on.
Ahhh, April -- it comes in like a prank-loving lion and goes out... I don't know, a little warmer maybe, and without the pranks. And it rains a lot. Anyway, celebrate the first full month of spring by going outside to roll around in a field full of crocuses and dandelions! And if you have debilitating allergies or, like us at TWoP, work nowhere near such a field, celebrate by reading these TV newsbites! And give your brain a break from thinking about the ER finale tonight.
Those of you hankering for a fashion fix, fear not. Bravo's readying a sexy new reality show tentatively titled The Fashion Show, in which undiscovered sartorial savants compete for a chance to be the next [insert incredibly overpriced fashion geeeeeeenius], brought to you by the folks who birthed such squawk box staples as The Biggest Loser and Beauty and the Geek.
Now it's time to put your money where your mouth is and help cast the final contestant. Think of it as Sophie's Choice, but with dresses!
