Catfish Season 4 Episode 14 Recap: Grammy-Nominated Catfish

Prophet,” formerly a part of the Grammy-nominated group Nappy Roots, recently started using social media. (I know, it’s crazy that he’s just starting to figure out how to use Facebook.)

Skin Wars Season 2 episode 6: It’s Steampunk Time!

Cheryl Ann annoys the crap out of others on Skin Wars season 2 episode 6

Skin Wars season 2 episode 6 is all about the accessories – jewelry to start and steampunk to finish.

The mini-challenge asks the painters to create a painting that offers a clear connection with a piece of jewelry. This design must also have a Victorian feel to it. Dawn Marie is totally into it. Avi is clueless again, so you know he’ll pull it out. Or not, because his beautiful headpiece jewelry ends up on his model’s shoulder. Huh? Cheryl Ann, Lana and … Continue reading

Patrick talks about his shocking elimination from WWE Tough Enough

Patrick talks about his shocking elimination from WWE Tough Enough

The collective jaws of viewers watching “Tough Enough” on USA Network dropped this week when Patrick Clark Jr.’s name was called for elimination. The competitor’s passion and knowledge for the product, combined with his athletic ability, made him a frontrunner to win the reality show competition. However, Clark received the lowest amount of votes compared to Josh and ZZ. “My first thought was hopefully I could win a Slammy for Shocker of the Year,” he said. “Second thought was disappointment. I definitely didn’t think I should have been the one going home out of the bottom three, but it is … Continue reading

Dating Naked: Playing For Keeps — Dare To Date Bare … Again.

Dating Naked

Last season, VH1 took dating to a whole new level with the series, Dating Naked where brave singles bared their bodies in the search for love. Host Amy Paffrath shared that for some of the show’s participants, being physically vulnerable allowed some participants to share the deep, dark crannies of their personalities, in addition to flashing their naughty bits. And to be honest, the TV experiment worked: the series boasts one wedding (so far) and several serious relationships — which is a better success ratio than any TV dating show I can think of. This season, TV’s favorite nude dating … Continue reading
