Reminder: ANTM Open Thread TONIGHT!

Antm_jay Oh, God help me, I love this show. Love it! It's so wrong in all the right ways.

Last week's episode continued the tradition of axing the boring and non-emotionally unstable contestants, as Mama Janet was sent home. (This is why I think Ambreal "suddenly" developed a "fear" of "heights," since she knows crying = screen time and manufacturing a fake fear might score her some points with the judges when she "suddenly" overcame that fear for her photo. Yes, I am calling total bullshit on her fear of heights. I am a certified armchair-phobia-judgment-ologist, didn't you know?)

(You want real drama? Cast ME next cycle and have the first photoshoot be at a volcano. I would freak out so hard and be totally awesome television.)

We're open threading tonight's episode, starting at 8 pm ET, over at Mamapoptalk. And then we'll open a post-show discussion thread for those of us who can't watch the show live. (Kids! And their smack-in-the-middle-of ANTM bedtimes!) Was Bianca's hair really the true source of her stank-ass attitude, and if so, will it grow back this week? Will Heather continue to win that Cover Girl of the Week thing over and over because she's just so doofily adorable? Is Jenah's weave the new Brittany's weave? Tune in tonight and find out!

Hooters Opens in Beijing: Globalization FTW!


ABC News reported yesterday that Hooters' 435th branch just opened in Beijing, China. The city is preparing for the 2008 Olympic Games and the notorious "family restaurant" was an obvious choice for enticing hungry foreigners (read: dudes who like boobies) who may or may not have Oedipal breastfeeding issues.

Coincidental aside: I'll be hosting the open thread tonight for Survivor: China over at MamaPopTalk.

MamaPopTalk Reminders: SYTYCD and Top Chef Open Threads Tonight!


Don't you forget about me. And don't you forget about all the various open thread action we've got going on at MamaPopTalk tonight...So You Think You Can Dance discussion kicks off at 8 pm ET, followed by Top Chef at 10 pm ET.

I mean, it's Mary Murphy. And probably some sequins. A lot of breathless panting for votes. And MARY MURPHY.

And then a bunch of cheftestants so vanilla (but not vanilla-butter poached lobster), that I'm 99% certain the chick who got kicked off last week never actually appeared on camera before. You know you need us betches to get through this.
