Best Ink Season 3 premieres tonight at 10/9CT on Oxygen. • Meet the Season 3 competitors here I got my first tattoo as a gift from a pal on my 30th birthday. It’s a small kanji symbol for “joy” on my ankle so that whenever I get to wondering where the happiness has gone in my overscheduled life, all I have to do is look down and, boom, there it is. Shortly after leaving the shop, I realized that I can’t find any evidence anywhere that the symbol really does mean joy, so I’m not sure what exactly is on … Continue reading

Mob City premieres Dec. 4 at 10/9CT on TNT. When Jon Bernthal teamed up with Oscar-nominated writer/producer/director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) on the set of Darabont’s apocalyptic AMC drama The Walking Dead, he knew he’d forged a personal and professional partnership that would last long after viewers ultimately discover who comes out on top, the living or the undead. So when the actor, who played loose-cannon former cop Shane Walsh, learned his character’s time was up around the same time Darabont was confoundingly excused from the show he’d helped make a pop-culture phenomenon, there was already … Continue reading
When the party’s oooooooverrrrrr!! Yes, it’s finale night, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition fans, and I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted and ready for my happy ending. And since I very much like all of the dancers who are left in the battle, that’s a given, which is nice. We start with a little recap of the ladies and how they got there, complete with kiddie pictures and home video. Gianna says the money would mean she could afford to go to college in addition to the Joffrey. Cindy says Abby’s rough treatment of her daughter has only made Gianna … Continue reading
Well, well. Maybe ol’ Hershel is right after all and you really can come back from the bad things that happen to you here in the walker-pocalypse. Because of all the gents I expected to remain the epitome of ice-blooded, comrade-killing evil, Philip “The Governor” Blake is it. And yet, there he was, the most sinister guy we’ve yet to encounter on The Walking Dead, broken, abandoned and facedown in the street before the vision of a little girl in a window brought him back to his feet and back to life as a — gulp! — lion-hearted family protector … Continue reading

With one week to go to the finale, we’ve reached the point of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition where the show should theoretically be about dance alone. Am I right? The also-rans have gone home. The remaining dancers are all deserving. The mothers are well-behaved … well, except for Cindy. But her big problem was JoJo and Jessalynn, and they’re back in Nebraska. So nothing but earnest, honest competition and great dancing, yes? No. Cindy just said she would do whatever needs to be done to win this thing. There will still be hysteria. • RELATED: Dance Moms Cares and Dance Moms … Continue reading
For plenty of us, the holidays and family drama go hand in hand. But for West Virginia’s Stanley sisters and their equally feisty kin, family drama is a daily way of life. So if you’re looking to spend part of the season with a clan that makes yours look downright normal, check out TLC’s Gypsy Sisters Season 2, which premieres Dec. 5 at 9/8CT. • RELATED: Gypsy Sisters Season 1 finale recap * RELATED: Meet Mellie’s baby Richard at TLC.com The 8-episode season kicks off with sisters-in-law Nettie and Kayla indulging in what the network promises is “one of the … Continue reading
Seventeen-year-old Helena Hunt is the lanky wisp of a hippie girl with a sweet voice and a penchant for playing the banjo whose steadfast commitment to her own laid-back style made her an instant fan favorite on Lifetime’s new docuseries Chasing Nashville. “It really just kind of fell in my lap,” Hunt says of her unlikely overnight rise from Clyde, N.C., high-school student to reality TV star. “My chorus teacher was actually contacted by the production company and they just said they were looking for girls my age that could play instruments and sing. She told them about me, and … Continue reading
MYV’s Generation Cryo premieres Monday, Nov. 25 at 10/9CT. Seventeen-year-old Breeanna Speicher has more than a dozen siblings, all sired by a single man. The list is growing. Until recently, she had never met any of them. Like her brothers and sisters, Speicher — born to a lesbian couple in Reno, Nev. — was conceived using sperm from an anonymous sperm donor, a fact she hid until her teens when she began pondering the sum total of who she is. Hoping to meet her biological dad, whom she only knew as Donor 1096, Speicher logged on to the Donor Sibling … Continue reading
