This is a Real TV Show? “Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor”

This is a Real TV Show? "Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor"

I was flipping through TV last week and I came upon a show on TLC that made me stop. I was shocked to learn that Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor is in its third season. First Question: Are these people for real? Second Question: How have not known about this hilarity until now? So I headed online for more information about the show, which seems to be a cross between Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Roseanne and Party Down South. From the show’s press site, I gleaned: “America’s favorite trailer park is back and filled with plenty of gossip that’s … Continue reading

Recap: Long Island Medium Season 6 premiere finds us emotionally drained

Recap Long Island Medium: 25 and Counting (original air date March 8, 2015): She’s back. Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo begins the Season 6 premiere episode in her traditional narrative style, this time explaining how she and Larry have been together for a long time — 29 years actually (they’ve been married for 25). Theresa recounts several memories on how they met (they worked together at an oil company), while sharing photos from their younger days.

my-big-fat-american-gypsy-wedding-season-4

She sews seas shells! On tonight’s all-new My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, Gypsy Sisters star Nettie Stanley’s son Whitey marries his longtime love Lottie — and, of course, the family turned to everyone’s favorite gypsy-couture all-star, Sondra Celli, to design the dress. “The wedding was down by water, so we did seashells,” says Celli, calling from her suburban Boston business on yet another snowy winter day. “The dress is absolutely gorgeous. She had a theme to her wedding, so it worked for me to go into ice blues and seashells. Seashells! It’s a beautiful dress. It’s odd because it … Continue reading

LaRue and Her Nail Tech

“Um, my longest one is probably … this one, and her name is Marla.”   -LaRue, referencing Marla, her approximately 17” fingernail, on TLC’s new series, Strange Love.

Meet Michelle and Dan Hamill of TLC’s Our Little Family!

our-little-family-tlc

One of 6-year-old Jack Hamill’s toddler twin sisters wants him to turn the television down. Right now. She’s not going to tell him again — which she informs him in a voice that handily drowns out the offending appliance in the first place. It’s one of several amusing interruptions in the chat I’m having with the kids’ parents, Dan and Michelle Hamill, who — along with their adorable, tow-headed brood — are the stars of TLC’s Our Little Family, which premieres Tuesday, Feb. 17 at 10/9CT. All five of the Hamills live with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, and throughout the series, Dan, … Continue reading
