As I was channel surfing the other day, I paused on TLC to watch an old episode of What Not To Wear. After countless "Umm… no"s, a few "I wish Clinton wasn't gay"s, and too many moments in the painful-to-watch but wildly-entertaining 360° mirror, the show went to commercial.
Dig your crop tops out of your closet, iron some patches on to your jean jacket, and sprinkle on some body glitter because we're planning the ultimate '90s Throwback Summer Festival. It's going to be hotter than Kate Winslet's hand on a steamy car window and we're here to give you an all-access pass to the excitement.
Flip through the channels on any given day and take your pick of whose lives you'd like a firsthand look at- pregnant high-schoolers, wealthy housewives, bridezillas, fist-pumping guidos, drug addicted celebs, trashy hoes fighting (literally) for the love of a rockstar, famous-for-no-reason celebs, tiara clad toddlers, and people who've had waaaaay too many children.
We all know Reality TV is less than quality. And yeah, Rock of Love (especially that bus!) and For The Love Of Ray J are ruining the world, but it's hard not to love those celebrity-based reality TV shows. Whether it's seeing how those people live or getting to know them in a different way, there's just something about those shows that keeps me, and America, coming back for more.
Like most weekends, I spent my Saturday afternoon curled under a blanket in front of my TV. But unlike most weekends, I spent my Sunday buying a 3-pack of pregnancy tests, running home, chugging a bottle of water, and taking every last one.
They are all over the media and even if you’ve never seen their show, everyone knows who Jon and Kate are thanks to their very public separation and the battle that’s ensued. They lost a battle to Speidi right here on CollegeCandy only a few short months ago. But little did we know then that soon the couple would turn on one another.
So, Jon and Kate's "big announcement" has been the talk of town for days. And while many people ask "Who the hell are these freaks and why do I care?" all I can say is, "THEY ARE JON AND KATE GOSSELIN, DUH! They have the cutest kids ever and I've been watching them since they were BORN!!!"
This week’s showdown is between two "celebrity" couples that spend their days on the cover of every tabloid on earth. Which couple should have kept the cameras out of their lives? Do we really have to choose?!
Anyone who knows me knows not to call on Tuesday nights. Not only is it Biggest Loser night, but it also happens to be the best night of my week because of one thing only: The Real Housewives. I don't care if they are from Orange County, Hot-lanta or New York, I can't get enough of these women.
I've been single for a really, really long time. Like, super long. The last time I had a BF, Jordin Sparks was still competing on American Idol. Yeah. Not that I mind being single - I have actually gotten quite used to it - I just worry that spending so much time depending on myself and myself only has sorta made me....too single.
True fact: I went years without cable. And I never complained. But, as soon as I was old enough to babysit, I would put the kids to bed and turn on the TV and embrace the goodness of TLC. Those were the glory days of The Learning Channel, because it's gone downhill since then.
I’ll be the first to admit that I am a What Not to Wear junkie. I love (and am not afraid to admit it) watching Stacey and Clinton trash horrible wardrobes, and watching people's confidence blossom when they feel good about themselves. I would love for S&C to come to my house with a set of rules. The $5,000 Visa wouldn't hurt either.
Prince— like most amazing artists, great music but such a weirdo. Perfect gloss for the winter…every girl needs it! Lookin’...
