Interview: Christy McGinty from “Little Women: LA”

Christy McGinty

As a result of Lifetime’s Little Women: LA, Christy McGinty is on her way to becoming a household name. Her brashness and honesty has made her a fan favorite and a focus of much of the show’s drama. In the show’s premiere episode, Christy was introduced with the quote, “if you don’t like me, I have no time for you,” and she’s remained true to her word. As longtime friendships have become strained, she’s fearlessly moved forward in her search for her own happiness. One of my favorite parts of this season has been Christy and boyfriend (then fiancé, now … Continue reading

Naked And Afraid Nicaragua Recap: Season 3, Episode 4

Naked And Afraid Nicaragua Recap: Season 3, Episode 4

After last week’s tension-filled episode of Naked and Afraid, I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next. That was a pretty disastrous couple, (but it made for great TV). I can’t believe the number of critical comments about survivalists Carrie. Her partner Tom was both praised for his patience and scrutinized for both his unwillingness to snuggle and his single-minded concern for firewood. This week, the folks at Discovery have teased a possible romance between the two participants. If there is any romance between Jaclyn and Adam, I bet it will be pretty PG. This is Naked and … Continue reading

Dating Naked Recap: Episode 1, Joe and Wee Wee

Dating Naked

So here we are, about to watch another show starring naked folks. But this time, instead of searching for water, food, clothing and shelter, the participants are looking for love (Or sex. Let’s be honest, they’re looking for sex.) VH1 has thrown a spin on the reality dating genre by taking singles, stripping off their clothes and hopefully removed their inhibitions towards love on Dating Naked. The show’s theme song has the words, “When I met ‘cha, I saw everything. I know you now.” How fitting. How many of the show’s contestants are going to vote with their eyes and … Continue reading
