The Jersey Shore kids don't know which city they're actually in, but a lack of geography knowledge isn't the most reprehensible thing they've ever done, so that's two weeks in a row where they aren't the most disgusting people on the reality planet. That's got to be some kind of record. Here's who did make the list:
We're grateful for horrible reality TV personalities since without them, our favorite unscripted shows would be devoid of drama. And this fall, there are some real gems on the air, ranging from the hilariously moronic to the annoying to the downright disgusting to the unstable and rude - and in some cases, a combination of several or all of these characteristics. Here's our not so fond look at the best of the worst:
Honestly, honestly, honestly -- and I'm gonna be real with you, because I'm real -- Bad Girls Club is back, bitches. Though Season Six was maybe the worst in the series' history, starting off Season Seven with breakfast in bed got me all warm and fuzzy inside. From the fabulous editing (Jersey Shore can really learn a thing or two about ironic cuts and the use of filters) to the ridiculous reasons for fighting, there's good reason to believe that New Orleans will breathe the life back into this show. In order to further my case, let's take a look at the most memorable lines spewed, shouted and shrieked in this premiere.
Since we can't put Butch from Teen Mom on every time, here are the other reality TV personalities who were terrible this week:
Even though it was Labor Day weekend, people still worked hard at being obnoxious.
Our prayers have been answered. After Chelsea Handler proved to be absolutely terrible at last year's Video Music Awards, MTV has decided to ditch tradition and have no host at Sunday night's award ceremony. There are plenty of other shows that we wish would follow this example, as well as a few we hope never try to be as ahem edgy as MTV.
Just like the news today, a lovely spring day always brings the promise of renewal.
Last season of The Bad Girls Club was an endless string of fights, broken up only by evictions and male strippers. The cast went through such an upheaval that by the time Perez Hilton sat down for the reunion, I barely remembered some of the girls who had been ousted early on. So this season has a lot to measure up to in terms of crazy hair-pulling and genuinely disgusting displays of human behavior. Unfortunately, since no one got dragged down a flight of stairs or locked out of the house in the first episode, it's hard for me to judge how the show's return to L.A. will fare.
I'm frankly shocked that it took Bad Girls Club this long to set a season in Las Vegas -- where else can you pull out a bitch's weave at 8 AM in 105-degree weather? The teaser for this season promises a lot of nudity, fighting and blacking out on the streets of Nevada, and if last night's premiere was any indication, it will all be pretty awesome and full of puking. I feel especially confident after hearing these highly ridiculous quotes during the episode (and there were more in the introductory flash-forward, but let's just stick to what we actually saw go down):
Sick of hearing about the Leno/Conan feud? Well, the Internet sure isn't! On the bright side, there's so much TV news today that you can get yourself excited about something you actually watch.
