True Tori

Tori Spelling is a busy woman.

True Tori promises a warts-and-all look at her life as her marriage crumbles and she struggles to raise her four kids. For the last 3 months, Dean has been in a rehab facility for his “overall mental health” after US Weekly revealed a December 2013 affair.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: Party Anthems

Dancing With The Stars

Last week’s shocking elimination of Cody Simpson deflated a little of the energy surrounding this season’s Dancing With The Stars cast. I was definitely hard on Cody about his swagger, but he was certainly fun to watch. His dance style was a cool blend of pop-and-lock and flow dancing and I was impressed that he was forever true to himself by imparting his personality into everything he did. For a seventeen year-old guy, he already has himself pretty well figured out. I don’t imagine this kid going through a wool-socks and Birkenstocks “finding myself” phase. Cody’s music video for Surfboard … Continue reading

Naked And Afraid Recap: Episode 6 “Meltdown In Bolivia”

Naked and Afraid

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 six hourlong episodes, two “Bares All” recap episodes, and a two-hour, two-couple special episode. This season, the six episodes have been 75 minutes long, and are followed by the … Continue reading

The Vampire Diaries recap: “Resident Evil”

The Vampire Diaries recap: "Resident Evil"

It’s been a long couple of weeks, and the CW’s The Vampire Diaries is finally back. First of all, this whole love triangle thing between Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is getting a little old. Now that Elena has officially ended things with Damon she’s been thinking a little too much about Stefan. Now we all know that the relationship between Elena and Damon was far from perfect but when it finally happened many of us were just so happy that she finally picked one of the brothers. Well, now things are flipped upside down … Continue reading

Supernatural recap: “Meta Fiction”

Supernatural recap: "Meta Fiction"

This season of The CW’s Supernatural has been a little out of control, especially with the fallen angels, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) doing a lot of fighting—not that that’s anything unusual. What is unusual about this episode is that it seems as though Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) has decided to take matters into his own hands and come up with his own version of a story. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean are still on the hunt for Abaddon (Alaina Huffman). Their research gets interrupted, though, when Castiel (Misha Collins) calls with news that Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett) is still up … Continue reading

Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 16 recap: The mother(s) of all midseason finales

Dance Moms oopsie Christy

It’s the Season 4 Midseason finale, Dance Moms Nation and that means it’s time for the much-discussed new team. And the new mothers. Well, sort of new. One gave us a special little taste of her tact and refinement — and brought out the best in Melissa — last week. Another we met a month or so ago in Michigan. And another isn’t new to Kira at all. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We start out on a somber note, because the show has finally caught up to Maryen Lorrain’s Feb. 8 death. As each Pitt Crew mother-daughter … Continue reading

Dancing With The Stars Recap: Season 18, Disney Week

Dancing With The Stars

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
