Even at the holidays, people are still terrible.
Reality announcements, cast reunions and overdone pilot ideas are today's big stories.
Elvis has left the building. Not as quickly as we wanted him to, but still. Here's the worst of the worst from reality TV this past week, but who was the biggest loser of them all?
Lisa Edelstein is coming back to TV! And this time, it's on a show that's worthy of her.
Yes, there are even more of these Real Housewives creatures now. Luckily, the Beverly Hills ladies do seem different enough from the Orange County ones to not seem completely superfluous, but, you know, all of these women are exactly the same in a lot of ways, no matter where they're from. As I always do, I'm sure I'll get more excited about this installment as the season goes on -- the fighting's not fun until you feel like you know them, and that takes a few episodes -- but for now, let's just go over our brand-new, hideously shallow and pathetically materialistic Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as we know them now.
Last night was the first of three installments of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, and while we've only just scratched the surface of the craziness with these women, there were already some very memorable moments:
Camille Grammer may be leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, while Audrina Patridge gets her own show on VH1. I guess how it works in the reality show world is one airhead in, one airhead out.
The Countess (aka LuAnn de Lesseps) is going to be on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, and not just because they've already cycled through every available New York-based actor/waiter twice. The Countess will be "acting" as an art patron who is posing semi-nude for a painter. Wonder if the painting she already has in her boudoir will be used as a prop? Anyway, since she's the first Real Housewives star to land a real acting gig (and no, we're not counting Sheree's community theater thing or the off-off-Broadway show some of the Jersey girls do, or the softcore porn movie Camille was in) it got us thinking about other shows that the various Housewives could "act" in.
Looks like it's gonna be TLC Minus 9 pretty soon.
Big doings in TV land! Not the network, but the greater world in which TV is an all-encompassing concern. Show-castings, guest-starrings, show-namings, show-leavings and plot-spoilings! (Easily avoidable ones.)
