Desperate housewives season 7 episode 1
The Real Housewives of New York City (bravotv.com) Whatever is a Housewife to do? Two Hamptons brunches hosted by two crazy people on the same day at the SAME TIME? This is the One Percenter Problem that Heather, Princess Carole, The Countess and Kristen are up against, having been invited by both Bethenny to a brunch at her home, and in a fit of brunch-blocking, by Ramona at some Hamptons’ restaurant. The Countess declares that they will attend both, to Her Serene Highness’ displeasure. Right on, Your Majesty. (realitytvgifs.tumblr.com) The “new” castmembers — if they can be called that on their third season — ask The Countess about the hostile dynamic between Ramona and Bethenny, and The Countess tells some story about how Ramona borrowed a dress from Bethenny and never returned it and that’s why Bethenny went all berserk at The Countess’ party — even though (at least the editing made it look like) Ramona was being the … [Read more...] about ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’: Cougar town
The Real Housewives of Dallas As you might have noticed, I’m WAY behind on these Real Housewives of Dallas recaps, and am now playing catch-up. Here is the recap for the episode after this one, “Locken Loaded,” and here is the episode that follows, “Black and Blues.” Having screamed in Brandi and Stephanie’s faces and having thrown her throwing wine, LeeAnne is seemingly out of theatrics, and storms out of That Marie Person’s cocktail party, only to be followed by the camera crew and one very Jesus-Juiced-up Tiffany. As Tiffany tries to stop her friend from going home for some reason, who even knows why (too much cheap Jesus Juice), LeeAnne rants and raves that Tiffany DID NOT HAVE HER BACK. Tiffany argues that it’s actually just the opposite, she finds herself constantly defending LeeAnne and her crazy nonsense behavior. Tiffany continues to shriek at LeeAnne that, SHE’S GOT HER BACK, SHE TOOK UP FOR HER IN … [Read more...] about ‘The Real Housewives of Dallas’: Street Fighter
Flickr: (A3R) angelrravelor (A3R) Fall back into television. Oh, September. Are you the best month of the year? The children go back to school, the temperatures start inching down from the 1000s, and television returns. Sweet, sweet television. Of course, the entire television industry has changed so dramatically that it’s difficult to even delineate between the end of the summer season — something that never existed before the advent of cable and its 10,000 different channels — and the beginning of the fall season. Is Mad Men a late summer show, or a very early fall show? How about Top Chef or Project Runway? For our purposes, we’re going to mark the beginning of the fall season as the point when the networks begin premiering their new and returning shows. But this question of what the seasons even are is just one of many problems the networks are facing. Other problems? Diminishing viewer numbers, DVRs and an aging audience. Not to mention that pesky … [Read more...] about Tune In Guide to the 2009 Fall Television Season
Thirty-three years ago today, one of television’s great — nay, iconic — series came to an end. It was a show about a couple of good ol’ boys that meant no harm, yet were crossways with the law … practically since the day they were born. Beats all you ever saw, right? OK, I admit I probably have a soft spot for “The Dukes of Hazzard.” When the 2005 movie came out, I tried to warn my bosses here at the Statesman about the depths of my devotion — telling them about how 7-year-old Dave passed out from heat exhaustion one Friday afternoon in 1979, then woke later up in a darkened room slightly hysterical because he thought he had missed that evening’s episode. The Statesman let me review the movie anyway, and when I gave it a somewhat-positive grade, they never let me review another movie. What was I gonna do? Willie Nelson played Uncle Jesse! Anyway, if I’m not fit to be a film critic, I can rank the … [Read more...] about “The Dukes of Hazzard” ended 33 years ago: Where are they now?
