Summer By Bravo — What to Watch
Bravo has introduced a couple new reality shows to the mix this summer, including Newlyweds: The First Year, Below Deck, and my particular favorite, Princesses of Long Island (love to hate, obvs). Continue reading
Throwback Thursday – Orange County, Circa 2006
In 2006, a relativity small cable network called Bravo let their audience peek behind the gates of a wealthy suburban community in Orange County, California called Casa de Cota. We were introduced to five privileged, yet hardworking (OK, some of them) women: Vicki Gunvalson (“the OG of the OC”), Jo De La Rosa, Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson, and Kimberly Bryant. This docusoap would be the start of the Real Housewives franchise, which, let’s be honest, we now can’t live without. What would the world be like without Vicki’s “woohooo,” Tamra’s snarky comments, Jeana’s smart-ass kids, and the man behind the women, Slade Smiley. Next week marks the 100th episode of the series and it will feature candid interviews with former housewives throughout the years, and even some of the Real Kids of Orange County. The two-hour special will explore the Housewives phenomenon, and how the series has changed the women and their families. 100 Episodes! These ladies are looking good. Thank god for plastic surgery!
Living The Wanted Life
On Sunday, June 2nd, a new E! series came across my Tivo called The Wanted Life. The reality show chronicles the personal and professional lives of the English/Irish breakout band, The Wanted. I have always been a big fan of a good boy band (N’SYNC, Backstreet Boys, NKOTB, Jo Bros… the list can go on and on). However, now that I am a little older and wiser (maybe), I thought I was past the age of screaming, fainting, and fangirling freak outs…guess again! Last Sunday I fell in love with these cheeky ball-busters, and I look forward to seeing their success in America grow. Bloody hell — watch it already! (Okay, I think those are the only two English references I can remember.) Continue reading
10 Questions We Wish Revolution Would Answer
We lived in an electric world. We relied on it for everything. And then the power went out. Everything stopped working. We weren’t prepared. Fear and confusion led to panic. The lucky ones made it out of the cities. The government collapsed. Militias took over, controlling the food supply and stockpiling weapons. We still don’t know why the power went out. But we’re hopeful someone will come and light the way. (Episode,1 Introduction)
NBC’s Revolution is an American post-apocalyptic television drama that started in fall 2012, and is already in its second season. The show revolves around a young girl, Charlie Matheson, and her family living in an America where all the power has been turned off for 15 years. In her quest, Charlie finds her estranged Uncle Miles, played by Billy Burke, a high ranking ex-general of the Monroe Republic. In each episode, the audience learns more and more about why the power went off and what happened in the last 15 years without it. Still, it is a show that often leaves you with more questions than answers. Aside from the obvious concerns, here are ten of the questions that I need answered.
This list contains spoilers. Continue reading
Live from Nashville, Tennessee: This is The NEW Bobby Bones Show…
I first heard The Bobby Bones Show on my morning drive to work at a new job, and in a new state. My initial reaction was “talk radioooooo” (in my best whiny Sal voice), but decided to stay put: half because I didn’t know any other stations, and half because the theme song for their “What Year Was It” segment was so darn catchy. I’m so glad I did, because even though they will never know it, they were my first three friends in Southwest Florida. ( I know…how pathetic). Continue reading
Keeping up with Lord Disick
While the Kardashian sisters spent the last episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami engaging in a sibling rivalry that made me grateful for my only child status, it was Lord Disick that kept me glued to my television. Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy (aka ‘BD’) is the only reason why I “keep up” with the Kardashian family. Most people would agree that Scott is an egotistical, shallow pig that only thinks about money and fame. Even though that might have been the case in the past, lately on screen, his humor outshines the ‘blahness’ of yet another scripted Kardashian sister conversation. In Sunday night’s episode, the girls leave for London, while Scott stays in Miami to introduce “The Lord” to the United States. Continue reading
Drinking and Tweeting with Brandi Glanville (or, just another night)
“Money doesn’t give you class…it just gives you money.” — Is Brandi’s line in the opening of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills throwing a dig at the many “wealthy” women of the 90210 or, perhaps, is it another jab at LeAnn Rimes? Either way Brandi’s statement differentiates her from the housewife stigma. She decides to stand out from that façade of housewife excess, and instead gives the Real Housewives audience a fresh voice on their television screen. Continue reading
