I'll admit, I wasn't a huge fan of this show when Lauren (zzZZZzz) Conrad was the star, but now that I have OnDemand and Kristen (Queen Man Eating Bitch) Cavalleri is back in town, the dramz is on a whole new level! Who doesn't love a staged cat fight, awesome fashion and good looking idiots getting drunk at various beach parties?
Again, I became addicted to this show when I got OnDemand. This is basically an East Coast version of The Hills, so that means, more serious 'tude, a lot more black and a higher caliber of wealthy sophistication, well, almost. How can you not sympathize with Whitney Port? A blonde in a sea of brunettes,stuggling to make it in the cut throat fashion industry of the "big city." Plus, the alternate storyline starring Olivia Palmero as accessories editor at Elle Magazine and the constant trials and tribulations she faces while trying to please her snot-nosed boss, PR Director, Erin, who wins my heart just with her repitoire of horrible stink eyes and sneers towards Olivia.
Wow. I have watched all four seasons of this show religiously and season five just started! As over zealous life insurance sales exec, housewife Vicki would say, WOOHOO! Bravo really hit the money with the Real Housewives franchise; the snobby social climbers of RHW: NY, the hip hop singing, wig sporting ladies of RHW: ATL and the table flipping, mafia guidos of RHW: NJ, but the original ladies of Orange County will always have a special place in my heart. My favorite angle in this season has to be the rivalry between self proclaimed "Hottest Housewife" Tamra Barney and younger, blonder, bigger gold digger, Gretchen, who last season was in a very precarious relationship with her 60-something, fiance, Jeff, who had been married 4 times, and ultimately lost a battle with lukemia, leaving the other housewives to question Gretchen's motives in the realtionship. The new season premieres with Gretchen and her new boy toy, Slade, shacking up together. Talk about JUICE!
Who doesn't love a good dating show? In this VH1 series, Steve Ward, super hottie and "matchmaker", holds a bootcamp for a dozen or so girls who have been unlucky in love. Throughout the show he promises he will find the ladies true love if they follow his straight forward rules. The best part of this show has to be the mavericks that the casting directors place to cause drama, this season is peppered with a stripper, former lady wrestler and a girl who used to weigh 300 lbs. The cast members are lead through a series of "challenges" such as makeovers and dating scenarios which will hopefully help them find them true love at the end of the ten weeks. Basically, it's must see TV!
Bravo has done it again! This has to be one of the most entertaining and ridiculous shows around. Patty Stanger, Jewish matchmaker to the stars allegedly owns and operates her very own match making business that caters strictly to millionaires (mostly men, although last season they showcased the very first female millionaire.) In a nutshell, each episode chronicles two millionaires (typically pot bellied, sleaze masters who drive Ferraris and have poor social skills) on a quest to find a quality trophy wife. Patty arranges for the men to go on dates with selected women from her database, the women tend to be in their 20's, have fake boobs, wear revealing clothing and have dollar signs instead of eyeballs. Watching each date unfold is a combination of second hand embarassment and pure glee! Not to mention, Patty's tounge and cheek yiddish infused commentary is over the top and super entertaining. This show is not to be missed!
