Top Chef DC Recap: Episode 2, Out of the Lunch Box

Top-chef-cleaver It is week two of Top Chef DC and our chefs are back in the kitchen - and this week they are pissy.

Who wants to see if I am physically capable of doing a three minute "Top Chef" recap?

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Revenge of the Squareboob Edition

Danielle-real-housewives-new-jersey Welcome to the first week of Real Housewives of New Jersey Minus One! Dina - aka Captain Zentastic - has left the show to focus on her family, her charity, and her horrifying cadre of hairless cats. Whatever shall we do? Wherever shall we go? There's only one way to find out, people: much like pulling off a band-aid or taking our first dip of the year into the chilly Atlantic, you've just gotta close your eyes... and go all-in.


The Real World's Return to New Orleans Reminder That The Real World Used To Be Good

Real World Logo MTV's The Real World's next season, it's 24th (!), will premiere June 30th and returns to New Orleans, the locale for it's 9th season. The latest Big Easy incantation follows a low-rated Washington season that tanked despite trying to piggyback on the political enthusiasm of young people following the 2008 presidential election. "What our audience wants is. . . . stories that relate to them. They don't want esoteric discussions," franchise creator and executive producer Jon Murray told the Washington Post on Monday. Apparently they're going back to boozing and humping.

The Bachelorette: Ali's Second Chance (AT ICE SNAKES!)

Why I Won't Be Recapping Project Runway Next Season

Runway  Lifetime has decided to add an extra half hour to Project Runway in season 8. An extra half hour! Will dresses that look like toilet-dyed ass at 10:45 look any better at 11:15? 


When Housewives Start Getting Real, Maybe We Should Stop Watching

Kelly-bensimon Last night's finale of the three-part Real Housewives of New York reunion again addressed the mental stability (or lack thereof) of castmember Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Bensimon spurred many a Twitter "OMGWTF" with her erratic, emotional behavior throughout this season of RHoNY, culminating in a full-on meltdown during a weekend getaway with other castmates, where she accused fellow Housewife Alex McCord of being a "vampire", claimed Housewife Bethenny Frankel was trying to kill her, and verbally spouted a lengthy barrage of incoherent thoughts that even confused Lost fans. I don't know about you guys, but that type of incident generally harshes the buzz of a beachfront vacay.

Top Chef DC Recap: Episode 1, The First One


Yes, I am excited. Of course the first episode is always a cluster you-know-what with 17 chefs to introduce us to and trying to get as many shots with the Capitol in the background as humanly possible.

Shut up. I can be cynical about Washington D.C. landmarks if I feel like it. I live here.

*spoiler alert*


The Jersey Shore's, "The Situation", Raps. The World Weeps.

Mike-the-situation Everybody slowly get up from your seats. Do not panic. Form a single file line and head for the exit. Please remain calm. Women and children first. This is essential for our survival.

The Bachelorette: Ali's Second Chance (AT MENTAL PATIENTS)

Bachelorette-ali  Well well well. Here we are again. And to say this particular installment of The Bachelorette is over-dramatic is like saying I like Hostess products. You don't want to miss this one, cats and kittens.

"Top Chef DC" Preview: Chef Fun Facts!

Top Chef DC  I hope nobody was disappointed that I haven't been recapping "Top Chef Masters" but I have trouble tearing people apart who are already successful and doing all of these challenges for charity. That being said, next week "Top Chef DC" begins and I have zero issues making fun of folks who are on reality tv for profit, and I cannot wait.


Party Down South, Y'all

Party-down-south-promo  Do you enjoy the incisive cultural commentary of Jersey Shore and the antics of its human stereotypes slash cast members? Raise your glass to a little bit of chicken fried? Then country women and men, though art loosed -- Party Down South may be for you. 

That's what she said.
