I like the various wives - even the bitchy ones. I … [Read more...]

If you are a watcher of these things (and like me you'd never admit it), you might just know that Jon Gosselin continued his “I'm living in a cabin in the woods” tour on Oprah's Where Are They Now. Now don't get all excited. This wasn't a nice sit down with the queen of talk herself. The format of the show runs like this: Oprah does a little intro to the segment (or a stand-up … [Read more...]

Big Brother and Other Reality TV Musings

Big Brother 15

By Jennie One of the main things I like about reality television, a much maligned genre, is that you get to see real people in real situations. Yes, yes, I know - scenes are staged and people act up to/for the cameras, and don't even get me started on the manipulative editing, etc. I know it's not "really real." Real reality would undoubtedly be too boring for anyone to want … [Read more...]
