Welcome to the Season Finale of Naked And Afraid. I’m sad this season is so short; six episodes is enough to pique the interest of viewers, but not enough to build loyalty amongst viewers beyond the core nucleus of rabid fans (like me!) I am sure that Naked and Afraid producers made an original 13 episodes and had to split them up once they saw the great ratings. Last season had 6 hour long episodes, 2 “Bares All” recap episodes, and a two-hour, two couple special episode. This season, the episodes have been 75 minutes long, and are followed by … Continue reading
For most families, preparing for winter includes putting away the patio furniture and buying a new shovel. For the Alaskans on NatGeo’s second season of Life Below Zero (returning Thursday, April 17 at 9pmET/PT), winter preparations are much more extreme. The season 2 trailer is almost as intense as the real show; when you live in Alaska, there is no margin for error, and every decision seems like it is life or death. I have so much respect for anyone who calls Alaska’s isolated and unforgiving back country, home. Each of the real people/families highlighted in this series are waging … Continue reading
In 2007, fortysomething single mom Sandy was battling the isolation and depression that stemmed from her recent divorce and the lingering effects of a car crash when she logged on to a poker web site and met handsome Texan “Keith.” The two began chatting regularly, first online and then over the phone, where their friendship quickly blossomed into the kind of Cinderella story lonely Sandy longed for. There was just one problem. After six years of only speaking to her love online and on the phone — and sending him tens of thousands of dollars to help him through what … Continue reading
Those Kookie Chrisleys are back tonight on USA for an all new episode of Chrisley Knows Best titled, “Date Night.” The kids want to do something nice for mom Julie and dad Todd by treating them to a day of pampering and a romantic dinner. Robert Burns once wrote, “the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray,” but this is reality TV, so it is a guarantee that nothing will go as planned. And yet I’m foreshadowing that everything that happens in this beautiful disaster will be complete with a southern drawl, comical results and witty zingers. … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race has released a bonus scene from the Queens of Talk episode. We don’t get any extra footage of the interviews themselves, just a chance to see the introductions that the girls filmed for The RuPaul Show. Logo TV The clip features each drag queen dancing & lip synching the theme song. Some highlights of the clip include: Trinity didn’t get Chaz’ name right in the intro with cue cards either. BenDeLaCreme describes her guests as the top and bottom buns of the Cher family sandwich. She’s probably the most entertaining of the queens. Courtney can’t help herself … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Episode 9 begins with the post-Laganja elimination kiki. We’re establishing that most girls think Joslyn is going home next, which means she probably isn’t. Other than that, there’s just some good-natured wholesome banter among the girls. The guest judges this week are Paula Abdul, Cher’s mom Georgia Holt and Cher’s son, Chaz Bono. The trifecta of close, but not-Cher. This week’s mini-challenge involves Mr. Scruff of the Scruff social network app and of the Scruff pit-crew. It’s basically Wheel of Fortune but with no Wheel, a lot of A-S-S and letters on the butts of … Continue reading
Tonight on Dancing With the Stars, Donnie Osmond’s purple socks return to the ballroom as tonight’s guest judge. The Season 9 celebrity champ is part of tonight’s Disney Night, and if you recall, Donny has a Disney connection — he sang “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You,” in Mulan. Unlike last week, where partnerships for “The Switch Up” were a well-guarded secret, this week, the dances and song choices have been revealed. Also revealed was that Disney Animation will be used throughout tonight’s dances. This will either go very well, or very, very poorly. Something that I hope doesn’t … Continue reading
