matt-paxton-hoarders-family-smile

When Lifetime debuts its Hoarders reboot, Hoarders: Family Secrets, Thursday night, fans of the A&E original will be pleased to see some very familiar faces have returned  to the Hoarders fold — including extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton. Paxton says that even though A&E pulled the plug on Hoarders in 2013, reruns on the show’s new Lifetime home have kept the series — and serious discussions about this very real mental disorder — alive. “It’s been pretty surreal to see the response on social media — for me, on social media it never ended,” Paxton says. “New people were finding the show and they were … Continue reading

UnREAL — New Lifetime dramedy examines the harsh reality of reality TV

UnREAL — New Lifetime dramedy examines the harsh reality of reality TV

UnREAL premieres Monday, June 1 at 10/9CT on Lifetime. Can you be a feminist and still love The Bachelor? Better question: Can you be a feminist and admit to loving The Bachelor? Best question of all: Can you be a feminist and actually work on The Bachelor? It’s a lot to digest — just ask writer/producer/director Sarah Gertrude Shapiro. When Shapiro was in her early twenties, she spent a few years working as a producer on ABC’s reality behemoth during its fourth and fifth seasons (that’s the disastrous “Bob and Estella” and “Jesse and Jessica” for those of you keeping score). … Continue reading

Kaitlyn Bristowe says she's "100 percent" sure she'll have a ring on her finger at the end of "The Bachelorette"

The Secret_Life_Of_Marilyn

The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe premieres in two parts Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31 at 8/7CT on Lifetime.   Everybody knows “Marilyn Monroe” — she of the frothy halo of platinum hair, baby-doll voice and va-va-voom figure, splendidly showcased in her most memorable films.

Norma Jeane Mortenson, a lonely foster child who used her kittenish charm, lush good looks — and, yes, her considerable intellect — to escape a nightmarish youth at the hands of her neglectful mother, Gladys. Now Lifetime’s ready to reveal the woman behind the … Continue reading

Interview with Britt Nilsson who talks hygiene, gowns, Larry David, “The Bachelorette” and more

Bachelorette_Britt

Britt Nilsson is not the cliché you might assume. Sure, she is a waitress in Hollywood, however, she is not the usual — an aspiring actress. That may put her in a more rarified league than why she’s in the spotlight. Nilsson is one of the two contenders on ABC’s The Bachelorette, premiering May 18. Admittedly, Nilsson did have a brush with acting. “I did a short film one time and it haunted me,” she says. And that was it. Nilsson is not taking acting lessons or expecting the reality show for the lovelorn to be anything more than a … Continue reading
