This today, from Doron Ofir Casting, the people behind star-making reality show future-hits like Tattoo Nightmares , EDM (the first Electric Dance Music reality competition) and Tug Of War:
I LOVE MY GROSS GUY!
Does your house make you feel bad about yourself? Is it a small and hovel-like? Are you embarrassed to have people over? Perhaps you, and other Americans just like you, were hoping that one day a reality TV show would come along about houses that were much, much worse than yours? Maybe one with a host who says nasty things? A show that would allow you to feel smugly self-satisfied for at least a little while? Well, A&E knows exactly how you feel.
The network is launching a new show called—what else?—”Hideous Houses.” Let the shaming begin!
On the advice of a friend who described The Cabin in the Woods as the next cinematic “happening” in horror and mayhem, I bit the bullet and suffered through a creepfest so stupid it makes trashy slash-and-burn epics like Humans Versus Zombies and I Spit on Your Grave seem like Molière and Proust. Some films have to seek their own audience like oil seeks its own level in water. Others arrive with a preordained sort of word-of-mouth anticipation that cannot be explained. This is one of them.
A testament to the wonders of writing under the guidance of crystal meth, this nightmare spoof of everything from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to the Scream franchise totally defies logic, and pretty much eludes description.
Not satisfied with her long string of number-one hits or her ever-escalating stunty tattoos (“THUG LIFE,” dear–are you sure?), Rihanna is set to launch a reality-TV show in the U.K. this summer. The “We Found Love” singer is to act as executive producer, though not necessarily in an onscreen role–the star is to be Read More
If the light dimmed yesterday and you heard ominous rumblings in the distance, it may have been due to news that could signal at least a temporary twilight over the Palin family ascendancy: Bristol went home to mama. Erstwhile veep candidate and ex Alaska governor Sarah Palin has a baby bird back at the roost and humbly working as a receptionist in a doctor’s office. The former teen mom recently told In Touch Weekly she had a revelation while in the desert (a bar) on the back of a (mechanical) bull that some people might disagree with her mother’s political views.
It’s a Kard-astrophe! Only 72 days after reality entertainment star Kim Kardashian and her husband Brooklyn Nets (if that is their real name) NBA star Kris Humphries tied the knot, the duo is now filing for divorce. We really thought these two kids could make it…at least through another season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
Poor Kris: he’s apparently devastated over the idea that the love of his life…not to mention his ca-ching money train…is leaving the station so soon. Oh well, what’s the infamous saying? All’s fair in love and Dior.
Russian Dolls is a new reality series on Lifetime about the habits and lifestyles of women of Russian extraction in Brighton Beach. Alessandra Stanley is an acid-tongued New York Times critic who wants to show you that she was paying attention in sophomore-year European history (or, maybe, Read More
Kelly Cutrone, the fashion publicist turned reality-TV personality (The Hills, The City and Kell on Earth), self-help author and Dr. Phil protégé, is still diversifying. She recently announced plans to start her own fashion line, Electric Love Army, backed by Christopher Burch, which will launch with three stores in New York next year. And now Read More
As any loving mother would do, Sarah Palin stopped by the set of “Dancing With the Stars” to watch her 19-year-old daughter Bristol — herself a mother, lest we forget — compete in the bafflingly popular reality show. She was billed as a “Guest Ballroom Commentator.”
The episode, which aired last night, was generally proceeding Read More
Three years after a former contestant on one of Gordon Ramsay’s cooking competition reality shows committed suicide, another one of the chefs berated onscreen by the abrasive, foul-mouthed British restauranteur has taken his own life. His body was found near the George Washington Bridge in Washington, D.C., says the New York Post, from police Read More
