See, there is life after Harry Potter!
TGIF, everybody! It's time to sort through all the human trash that was on reality TV this week and crown a king of the garbage heap. The following are my five nominees, plus this week's big winner. As always, this stuff is extremely scientific and cannot be argued with. Congratulations, top jerk!
Hey everybody, it is time again to judge the reality hordes for their heinous behavior! And what a doozy this week was. I had to cut all kinds of horrible behavior just to make room for my five nominees, but if you'll indulge me, I'd still like to disparage them here in a dishonorable mention kind of way. Ahem! Nice try, Tamar from Braxton Family Values, for emasculating your sister's husband and making her separation proceedings all about you. I'd also like to recognize the Duggars for becoming an infomercial for Focus on the Family this week, as well as LuAnn from The Real Housewives of New York for being a snotty, if hilarious ("Herman Munster shoes"), bitch, and Dana from Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition for constantly and heinously referring to himself in the third person. Now, on to business as usual: five nominees; one trash king to rule them all.
Happy Friday, everybody! Time to discuss this week's horrible human beings. Will it be one of those idiots on The Bachelorette? One of those trashcans from the Real Housewives franchises? A bitchy aspiring Food Network star? Let's get in there and figure this out!
It's finally Friday, and as usual the week has been full of ghastly people behaving terribly on reality shows, so let's do this thing: Five horrible nominees, one trash king crowned at the end. As always, feel free to play along in the comments.
I know we all have Royal Wedding fever today -- or if you're me, Royal Wedding hats fever -- but it is still Friday, which means it's time to take a break from The Most Important Wedding of All Time to turn our attention to royals of a different kind: the royal douchebags of this week's reality TV. Here are my five nominees, plus this week's winner. Don't worry, I'll try to make it brief so you don't feel like you're cheating on Catherine (I try to honor the Queen and abstain from calling her Kate) and William too much.
Frankly, just about everybody involved with American Idol at this point could be nominees this week, but for the sake of diversity, I have only one nominee from that horror show and four deserving nominees from other shows entirely. Let's get right to the bloodshed, shall we?
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.
The Bravo A-List Awards (or as we affectionately refer to them around here, "The Bravo Prom") aired last night, and as expected the show was a mixed bag of really entertaining and really frustrating -- hey, kind of like Bravo programming! They are so meta over there. Anyway, if you're as much a psycho Bravo reality fan as I am, read on for my picks for best and worst moments of the night, and play along at home!
Give me a bunch of bitchy, social-climbing rich ho's and I will happily sit for hours watching their every move and taking notes. (See Gossip Girl.) Make it a reality show and I will follow my TV into the fiery pits of hell (see The Real Housewives of Orange County, New York; The Hills) like a voyeuristic zombie freak.
I'm clearly not alone. It seems that moneyed asshole-centric programming has reached new heights, as one can see by not only the overarching success of the aforementioned shows but the slew of new ones filling up the fall calendar and beyond. There is, of course, the much anticipated return of 90210, some scripted series called Privileged, that reality Devil Wears Prada knock-off Stylista, and the requisite parade of E! specials that will doubtless document the excesses of the young, rich and annoying in that special way that only E! does.
