  • My Picks for the Cast of DWTS

    The cast for the new season of Dancing with the Stars has been announced. Yawn. I’d just as soon watch Bruno Toniolo in a Speedo. Oh wait…that was several seasons ago. Even so, watching that old footage again would be more interesting than watching the tired cast they’ve trotted out for season number sixteen. I […]

  • Movie Review: Magic Mike

    Last night my partner and I joined a group of our girlfriends from the gym to see Magic Mike. I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie in the theater. Every few years, I have to go again just to be reminded why I wait for the DVDs. Last night was no exception. […]

  • A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That…

    Writing has been a key interest for most of my life. The rest come and go, some lasting for decades and others keeping my attention for only a few weeks. You’ll notice a trend. When I’m in, I dive into the deep-end and completely immerse myself in whatever activity has caught my fancy. My interests vary. […]

  • Must See TV

    I have to admit, Dancing with the Stars has never been “must see” television for me. But now and then, one of the celebrities catches my attention and I have to check it out. After I saw a list of the celebrity contestants for this season, I really didn’t think this would be a season […]

  • Baby Momma Drama

    The number of baby mommas one has to deal with is directly related to the likelihood the relationship will last. I haven’t seen any studies confirming this theory. But experience and years of watching Jerry Springer and Cheaters on television have convinced me it’s true. The challenge is pinpointing the boundary between an acceptable number […]

  • Misnomers

    Regular readers know I spend entirely too much time watching television and that I have a particular fondness for trashy reality shows. It’s true. Jerry Springer, Real Housewives (especially Atlanta and New Jersey), Toddlers and Tiaras and other, equally offensive shows are regular fare. I can’t help myself. The new television season kicks off next […]

  • Evil Reality Show Chefs

    Nasty characters are among the most memorable reality show cast members. Omerosa from The Apprentice, Nene Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Danielle Staub from Real Housewives of New Jersey and the entire cast of Jersey Shore (except for maybe Pauly and Vinny) are famous mostly because of their inability to get along with other […]

  • Glitz Pageant Awards We’ll Never See

    I almost hate to admit how much I enjoy watching Toddlers & Tiaras. In case you’ve missed it, T&T is a reality show that follows little girls (sometimes little boys) and their parents as they prepare for and compete in glitz pageants. It’s another one of those train wreck shows that is so bad, you […]

  • My Last Remaining Vice

    I gave up cigarettes, drugs, and alcohol a long time ago. Yeah, I’ll still have the occasional frozen margarita or something similar, but rarely more than one.  Thanks to Weight Watchers, I’m eating healthy, too.  Other than cussing now and then, I am almost completely free of vices. I’m not into porn. I don’t fool […]
