Catfish Season 4 Episode 2 Recap: “Foot Fetish Catfish”

Catfish Season 4 Episode 2 Recap: "Foot Fetish Catfish"

The second episode of season four of MTV’s Catfish hit creepy on a whole new level. Taking the role of Max in this episode is a title holder of Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf. Cassidy has unfortunately had her own personally experiences with an online stalker. A man gained access to Cassidy’s webcam and began to spy on her without her knowing. Soon after gaining her title, the man began to blackmail Cassidy with photos and videos he had taken during his private creeping viewing sessions. Luckily the FBI got involved and the man is behind bars at the moment … Continue reading

Strange Love: A Recap of Episodes 1 & 2 of TLC’s New Show

LaRue and Her Nail Tech

“Um, my longest one is probably … this one, and her name is Marla.”   -LaRue, referencing Marla, her approximately 17” fingernail, on TLC’s new series, Strange Love. I’m pretty creative, you guys, but even I can’t make this s**t up. The first 2 episodes of TLC’s new series Strange Love premiered tonight. The series, in TLC’s words, “follows the lives of people who prove there’s someone for everyone.” We all have our quirks, but some people are quirkier than others, and sometimes that makes finding love a bit more difficult. This show looks at people looking for love, as well as people who … Continue reading

Jane the Virgin star Azie Tesfai: “I’ve always been team Rafael…sorry Brett”

Jane the Virgin star Azie Tesfai: "I've always been team Rafael...sorry Brett"

When The CW announced the premiere of their new show, Jane the Virgin, some were skeptical on how well a telenovela based show would do on a network that produces primarily supernatural shows with such huge fan followings. I immediately fell in love with the show and it seems that others have jumped on the bandwagon as well. With two Golden Globe nominations and lead actress Gina Rodriguez winning the award for Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy, Jane the Virgin is the show everyone is talking about. With the show’s never-ending plot twists, the identity of the villain was … Continue reading

Interview with "American Crime" Star, Johnny Ortiz.

Johnny Ortiz is everywhere these days. You can currently see Ortiz alongside Kevin Costner in McFarland, USA an inspiring film about the unlikely success of a high school cross country team composed of the poor children of Hispanic migrant workers.

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1: Mosquitoes and baby’s position prove to be challenging

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1: Mosquitoes and baby's position prove to be challenging

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1 (March 3, 21015): Lifetime’s new unscripted series Born in the Wild, which I liken more to extreme birthing, opens by reminding us that years ago women gave birth without doctors or drugs (if only they had the options, right!?!). Clearly, times have changed — thank you modern medicine — and now over 98 percent of babies in the U.S. are born in hospitals. This series, however, is not about those seeking traditional hospital birthing experiences, instead it’s the women who are looking to reverse the trend and give birth in the wild. Viewers … Continue reading

Dance Moms Season 5 episode 8 recap: A little less talk and a little more dancin’

Dance Moms Season 5 episode 8 recap: A little less talk and a little more dancin'

Uh oh, Dance Moms nation. The counter is back. I suppose it was only a matter of time. And just for the record, I’d consider using Lifetime-sanctioned photos for these things if, you know, they actually offered some from each — or any — episode. Which they don’t. And what’s a story without pictures? So I make my own. So let’s all just ignore the counter. We do not see you, counter! Lalalala! As promised, we’re back in Pittsburgh. Holly says she sees L.A. as a success, even if Abby did try to sabotage Nia at every turn — Aubrey … Continue reading

Interview with Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

You may not agree with the birthing option selected by Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild, the first woman profiled on Lifetime’s new series premiering tonight (Tuesday, March 3 at 10pm), but there’s no denying that this birthing story is can’t-turn-away television. When I first read the initial press release on the series I was like “Wait, what?” As a hospital-birthing mother of three, the idea of a woman wanting to give birth in the wild (with no doctor on call) had me completely miffed. Like, who in her right mind would risk this — her health and the … Continue reading
