The Sisterhood episode 5 recap: Too pretty to be nuns

Recap of Lifetime’s The Sisterhood episode 5: Too Pretty To Be Nuns (original air date Dec. 16, 2014) Once upon a time, when Katy was 25 … wearing jeans and a T-shirt, I would go have a drink with close friends, we would talk about grad school, weddings, gossip a little, hash out some problems and then go dancing.  Once upon a time, 10(ish) years later, Katy was 35 (almost): wearing jeans and a T-shirt, I go and have a drink with close friends, we talk about husbands, kids, I’m still talking about school, hashing out some problems and then … Continue reading

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is behind TNT's newWake Up Call

A new level of respect and thanks goes to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with his latest reality series Wake Up Call debuting tonight on TNT at 9pmET/PT. The show is an emotionally charged journey that gives a good kick in the ass (in a good sense) to people who have been faced with extreme challenges. While some compassion is given to their personal hardship, Johnson provides a tough-love approach — in his candid, can-do-anything style — as he believes these individuals can and should be doing better. Johnson is certainly an ideal host / lead interventionist for the series as … Continue reading

The Sisterhood episode 4 recap: Let talk about sex

The Sisterhood Lifetime episode 4

In the fourth episode of Lifetime’s The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns, the women are hitting some bumps, struggling, being torn in opposite directions. In other words, yep, they are doing everything right. Discernment is messy and bumpy, and the women are starting to feel that.  Internal and external struggles are making themselves known at this point.  I find the women’s courage incredible to share some of those moments with the public — it’s a rare gift to actually hear what the struggle sounds like in others. And it’s the uncomfortable that lights the firecracker underneath people to make a move toward (or … Continue reading

The Sisterhood episode 3 recap: Movin’ Right Along

The Sisterhood episode 3 recap: Movin' Right Along

On this week’s The Sisterhood on Lifetime, the girls are off to their next discernment adventure! I’m sure those fifteen days with the Carmelites flew by.

I’m crossing my fingers that the intent is “exposure” and exploring — “would I like to continue discerning religious life” in general —not a specific congregation. It was nice to see … Continue reading

Alaskan Bush People

It seems the rumors of Discovery Channel’s Alaskan Bush People cancellation have been greatly exaggerated. Post by Alaskan Bush People. Indeed, Billy Brown and his clan will be back for Season 2 premiering Friday, Jan. 2, at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. It’s somewhat of a shock to us, considering some significant legal trouble surrounding the Brown family and some very damning reports about the show’s authenticity. But this is the network that brought you Eaten Alive, so we’re not really all that shocked. So, yes, of course we’ll be again recapping the Cirque du Alaska that is Alaskan Bush … Continue reading
