ANTM: You’re Not Fat Enough

Over a year ago, I talked about how America’s Next Top Model consistently shot down the solitary plus size model included on various cycles. Judges primarily cited the industry’s inability to change and/or accept models not rail thin and super tall, along with the plus size model’s sudden and oh-so-confusing (sarcasm!) downward spiral into depression and […]

Big Brother 8

It might seem a little melodramatic, but I think Big Brother this season is an excellent example of the 5 stages of grief in a compressed, reality tv show time frame: 1. Denial- This cannot be happening. How did they even find this many truly awful people? 2. Anger- This is horrible, and I kind […]

LA Ink: An Existential Boob Dilemma

For the most part I’m enjoying LA Ink, though there are a few issues that stick in my craw a little bit. Last night, for example, the episode was described thusly by my cable provider: Kat and Pixie go shopping for bathing suits, and Kat discovers that her weight loss has taken a few inches […]

Big Brother 8- They’ve Hit Rock Bottom and Started to Dig

The Age of Love

I really should have known better then to watch Age of Love. I don’t like reality TV, and I think reality TV dating shows portray women in an especially bad light. But when I heard the premise – seven women in their forties (well, 39-48) and seven in their twenties (21-27) compete for the ‘love’ […]

Kat Von D and the upcoming LA Ink

I enjoy tattoos. I know many people find them hideous, including my parents who, every time I see them, seek mine out just so they can cringe and whine about them. I can appreciate their and anyone else’s dislike, but to me tattoos can be art. And personal expression. Because of my tattoo love, I […]

I Know Who I’d Like to Fire…

Donald Trump must be stopped. According to Variety: Fox and Donald Trump are developing “Lady or a Tramp,” a reality-competition series in which girls in love with the party life will be sent to a charm school where they will receive a stern course on debutante manners. Trump will exec produce the show and possibly […]
