TV's Guiltiest Pleasures

On certain days when life is feeling pretty meh, or I’m too stressed out, I look to TV to cheer me up. Not to the critically acclaimed shows but to the trashy or mindless shows that make me zone out. Here are a few of my go-to guilty pleasures.

Basketball "Wives" Are Inferior to These Real-Life Wives

Basketball Wives is on its fourth season, which means they've got to be doing something right. But as I flipped through the new cast roster, I realized that NONE of them are even actually the wives of these NBA athletes. In the spirit of this new season, I can't help but think about some wives who would be just as interesting -- if not more so! -- than those featured in the VH1 hit. Sometimes the most common of jobs can be the most fascinating.

CollegeCandy's Exclusive Interview with Iliza Shlesinger

Recently, we got the chance to interview Iliza Shlesinger, the first funny-gal to walk away with the Last Comic Standing title. After walking home a winner, we followed her comic genius on her personal twitter, @iliza. But now, she plays the bad guy on the hot new dating show, Excused.

From PopEater: VH1 Gets Out Of The Trashy TV Business

In an unexpected move, VH1 is scrapping the majority of its lineup and starting from scratch. The network recently revealed the most comprehensive slate of original programming in its history, and missing are the very franchises that helped transform the one-time purveyor of music videos into a (much-watched) three-ring circus of "celebreality" and sometimes crass dating shows.

Hey VH1: Miley Cyrus Is Not a Diva!

When I think of divas, my mind automatically goes to artists such as Mariah Carey, Celine Dion or Whitney Houston. But VH1 has other plans for this year’s Divas show, premiering live tomorrow night. Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus will be the headlining performers this year.

College Myths Debunked: Some Hair of the Dog That Bit You

It’s no secret that much of the college social life revolves around drinking. We drink to celebrate, mourn, express loyalty to our football teams, to ease boredom, hell, some people drink to make homework a little more interesting. Well, all that super fun drinking sometimes results in not-so-fun consequences, like the raging, horrific hangover trying to escape your brain by splitting it open.

Candy Dish: We’re On Team Seacrest

• We got your back, Ryan Seacrest!Meagan still wants a millionaire. And VH1 will oblige. • We're lovin' DKNY's fall collection. • There are lots of songs about balls.... • Is God going gender neutral in the Bible? • Cheap, amazing dorm room DIY.

I’m Torn: America’s Next Top Model

I used to love ANTM. Ever since 2003, thanks to the CW, and the countless marathons on VH1 and MTV, I've been obsessed with all things Top Model. I remember Shandi's "Shanthrax" t-shirts, drunk Brittany, Nicole being a crybaby, crazy-ass Jade... and literally screaming at my TV when Whitney was crowned Top Model of cycle 10.

Tough Love: Some People Make Poor Decisions

Don’t get me wrong; I love Tough Love. Well, the show. I’m not quite sure I could handle someone pointing out my major flaws on national television (though I did attempt to audition for the next season…). Anyways, I think Steve Ward is great and knows his sh*t (and looks great in a pair of jeans) and really helped those women learn how to love themselves and be loved.

Tough Love: When Things Gets Awkward….Hit The Bottle!

I think last night might have been the best episode of Tough Love yet. In fact, I'm ready to say it might be some of the best TV I've seen since Bromance. Watching that episode sent me on a roller coaster of emotion and since the shades on my window were open and the people across the street can see into my place, they would have seen this:

Tough Love: That Bitch is Crazy

Last night’s Tough Love episode made me realize a few things. First, I need to move to L.A. to marry Steve Ward. Second, OMFG, I love Steve Ward. And third, judging a guy based on his footwear is not cute. It’s crazy.

Tough Love: Cupcakes and Flowers and Sex in a Bathtub, Oh My!

After last week's Tough Love ended with a "To Be Continued...." I was counting down the days until I'd get to see it again. So I was mega-excited when I turned on VH1 at the gym yesterday and caught a secret premier of the ep long before its 10 P.M. showtime. I watched the drama unfold a full 11 hours early and stayed on the elliptical an extra 30 minutes to catch the end.
