Here's a link to all of the nominations & this year I am very excited & also upset that most every category has my favorite shows & characters up against each other.  On one hand it's great because I will most likely not be disappointed (unless that 1 straggler from some show I don't watch wins) but then on the other hand I can't play favorites either!  Here is a list of the TV categories I care about & my first choice is red & 2nd choice in blue, you can see the link for the rest.  As far as the movies go I've only seen like one so I'm rooting for The Hangover for best comedy or musical but can't weigh in on the others.

The Sing Off...I can't help myself!

Ok I admit it, I'm totally in love with this show & totally irritated with local channel 4 for not showing us the first half of it last night for some stupid World War II crap!  So the show was for 3 days & then the finale is Monday & all of the boring/crappy/tone deaf crews have already been eliminated & we are down to the final 3!!  Of the final 3 I'm in love with 2 of the teams, the Beelzebubs & Nota.  I've been voting for the Bubs to win the finale as I prefer them just a smidge to Nota but so long as Voices of Lee doesn't win I'll be fine.  The Bubs totally have rocked every song they were given & last night they freaking owned Sweet Caroline.  I definitely have to give major credit to Nota for their performance of Sledgehammer last night though, man, their sound was really solid especially given the smaller size of the crew.  Voices of Lee isn't bad but they seem too "Broadway" or church choir for me & it's just not my cup of tea.  I really do think that it's between the 2 crews I've picked but they do need 3 crews for the finale hence Voices of Lee.  I was just on the site and you can watch episodes on there so I can't wait to catch up on what I missed last night as well as the first hour of the first episode.

The final episode is on Monday the 21st at 8 pm.

Californication finale

Ah yes, Hank Moody...the truth comes out!  After 3 seasons of being a total man whore the truth about him sleeping with Mia & stealing her book finally reared its head.  The episode started with Hank, Karen, and Becca preparing to move to New York and of course Mia showed up just in time to wish them a happy farewell.  Mia was in town for a book signing and she invited the Moody clan to her party and they all went even though Hank was totally against it.  Mia's manager/boyfriend confronted Hank & told him that he knew that Mia didn't write the book and that he in fact did.  Hank did everything he could to prevent this news from getting out even though the manager really wanted to spin the story & let the cat out of the bag so Mia could write a tell all & Hank could have his book back.

The next morning Hank was in a funk so Karen had Becca take him for a walk at which point she informed her dad that she had lost her virginity to a nice boy a couple nights before.  Hank surprisingly took the news fairly well & told Becca to wait until they got to New York to tell her mother.  After that Hank went to talk to Mia about not releasing the truth & ended up getting in a huge fight with the manager guy who called the cops on him.  When Hank got home from the fight he told Karen the truth about Mia & the book & she didn't take the news well and ran out, Hank ran out after her and was apprehended by the cops & taken away. 

Oh yeah, amidst all of this Charlie told Marcy that he wanted to have a baby with her & he was very happy that their relationship was getting back on track, or so he thought.  Charlie agreed to be Sue's agent & to market her memoirs though he turned down her offer to continue sleeping together because he was so in love with Marcy.  Well, none of that paid off because Marcy still signed the divorce papers & asked that Charlie do the same.  This season wrapped up with Charlie being baffled and Hank being arrested so I can't wait to see what will happen in season 4 but I'm going to assume that Karen & Becca will still move to New York and leave Hank to rot in his own indiscretions until further notice.  I can certainly foresee Hank & Charlie being 2 broke down bachelors on the prowl but both still secretly pining for Karen & Marcy.

Holy crap Showtime Finale Sunday was intense!!

Last night was the 4th season finale of Dexter and the 3rd season finale of Californication and both of them were really good!  Let's start off with Dexter which completely blew my mind and had me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire episode and then at the end, I think it's pretty safe to say that I fell out of it!  In the beginning, Christine had just killed herself & Deb was back at the office trying to piece things together when Batista told her to go home & take the day off which she opted to spend with one of her dad's C.I.'s who took her to the home of another C.I. which ended up being the house that the Ice Truck Killer (aka Brian, Biney) took her to back in season one.  This obviously stirred up a lot in Deb who began searching the history behind the connection between the C.I. and Brian which led to her discovering that Dexter was actually the brother of the Ice Truck Killer & that his mother was killed in front of him & his brother.

While this was going on Dexter followed Trinity from the police station to the bank & in the process side swiped some guy who wasn't happy about it.  While Trinity was in the bank Dexter hid behind his van & when Trinity approached he got him in the neck with his "kill juice" and pulled him in the back of the van.  Dexter discovered that Trinity had closed his bank accounts & knew that he was planning on taking off so he obviously got to him just in time.  As this whole process was going on the cops & the side swiped guy showed up and Dexter hit the guy & ended up in jail...with Trinity unconscious in the back of the van.  Well, Dex got out of jail & Trinity was gone...he had gone home & terrorized his family & took anything worth value from the house & bailed.

Once back to the office Deb got on the trail that missing boys were also part of Trinity's cycle so she questioned the boy who was kidnapped & returned to his parents (thanks to Dexter) and this is where she found out about Trinity's involvement with the Four Walls builds.  The crew went to the most recent build with dogs & discovered a dead boy buried in the porch cement & then were able to zero in on who Trinity really was (not the trucker they were looking for) & where he lived.  When the police & SWAT arrived at Trinity's house Dexter (Kyle) was actually there looking for Trinity and hid in the garage & when he was found he noted he was there with homicide & even though he was there ahead of everyone else they seemed puzzled but let it go.  While at the house Deb told Dexter about his mother & brother & of course Dexter already knew but he played it off like he didn't & acted very disturbed by the information all the while knowing that Trinity was on the road & he had to find & kill him!  

Skipping all the bull shit Dexter caught up to Trinity & finally killed him (with his own hammer) & it was great to see him finally go down, I think I felt as liberated as Dexter did to be honest.  Well, Dexter went & disposed of the body as he always does & then headed home to grab his bag so he could head to the Keys to meet up with Rita & Harrison.  When he got home he had a voicemail from Rita saying that she forgot the plane tickets & had to come back home & then take a later flight so Dexter called her and when he did her phone was ringing inside the house.  Dexter got up & found her purse in the chair with her phone in it & then Harrison started crying & Dexter walked into the bathroom to find Rita dead in the tub after having bled out (just like Trinity's sister & many victims) & poor Harrison sitting in a pool of blood on the floor.  Rita was Trinity's final kill & the baby sitting in all that blood took Dexter back to where it all started...when his mother was killed in front of him & he was left in that pool of her blood as well.

This honestly shocked the hell out of me & I'm not sure why because earlier in the season I thought that Trinity was going to kill Rita although I really wanted him to kill Deb because I just don't freaking like her!  I was finally getting used to Rita & liking them as a couple but now, what's going to happen?  I mean is Dexter really supposed to be a single dad of three with a more than full time job & a killing habit on the side?  I can't wait to see where season 5 takes this story because now all the balls are in the air, everything will change & I'm still a bit traumatized by Rita being murdered like that but I get it, Trinity couldn't just let Dexter do what he was going to do without making him pay for it first.  Poor Harrison, poor Astor & Cody, and poor Dexter who was finally becoming a human with emotions & who truly & unexpectedly loved his family.  I'm pretty sure that next season we will see a completely different Dexter who is even more effed up than he has been these past 4 seasons.  Ok, the countdown begins...just about 8.5 months until the next season!!

Top Chef Finale

Well, I have to say that I was extremely disappointed in the outcome of this season of Top Chef!  I kind of had a feeling pretty early on in last night's episode that my choice (Kevin) wasn't going to win & at that point I became ok with Bryan winning & then when it all came down freaking Michael won?  I mean sure Michael is a talented chef & has all kinds of cook techniques but he's a bit of a prick & a little too arrogant for my liking.  It's been proven that on this show arrogance will you get you very far & often all the way (look at Hung) but I still don't like the bad attitude. I know that Michael won a lot of challenges & made some innovative dishes but I also know that he didn't make many friends & there was an episode where another chef came in that he had worked with in the past & it was mentioned that they didn't get along.  Well, even though it's a competition you have to make friends & try to get along with everyone because that's not a solo industry.  If you don't have a sous chef & fry cooks then you don't have shit in your kitchen other than a poor ego. 

I think I'm most disappointed because I really liked Kevin's food, I would eat a lot of it & I'm a picky eater, and I really liked his attitude.  Kevin smiled often, he stood by his food, he seemed happy to be cooking & worked well with others.  I also felt that Bryan had a good attitude & was pleasant & worked well with others I just didn't care for his food...too much seafood which I don't eat.  Really, you show me a menu with fish & pork & I'm going pork all the way!  Well, like I said Michael is a great chef just not my choice but I can't wait for the reunion...I'm almost positive that Kevin will win fan favorite, just based on the text polls last night, he got 54% when Bravo asked "who do you want to win Top Chef"!!!

Jersey bad it's great!

Ok so I did get a chance to watch the first episode of The Jersey Shore & that show is a genius train wreck & I love it.  These chicks & dudes kill me...I can't believe people like this actually exist.  Not one of them is without a nickname, they are all orange, they have awful hair & dress terribly & apparently are super least at the Jersey shore, and likely only at the shore.  I was shocked to see "Snooki" rocking the old school hair clip, the claw type that look like a small chip clip & stylists will still use them but they are unacceptable in public & this "guidette" is all about them indoors & outdoors.  There's this annoying guy named "the situation" and he is the most obnoxious fool ever...a total  "guido" apparently with his "abs like Rambo" that he seems to assume no woman would deny but trust me when I say that I don't know a single chick that would even give him a second look, well unless it was to make fun of him!!  So I haven't seen any more episodes as of yet but I wanted to share my favorite quotes from the opener.

Said by a guido:  "Take your shirt off & chicks come to you, like flies on shit man" ~ talk about sexy!!

Said by a guidette:  "That shows how much more classy we are, we've been living in this house with these guys for 2 days & haven't even done anything with them yet" ~ yep, real classy!!

The top photo is Snookie & yes, she's wearing that clip & the bottom pic is Pauly D & he's the one who made the comment about the ladies flocking like flies!

Showtime Sunday!

Only one episode of Dexter & Californication are left & I'm going crazy wondering what will happen!  Now that Trinity knows who Dexter is & we all know who killed Lundy all that's left is for Dexter to finish the job & remove Trinity from the game completely but it doesn't look like it's going to be very easy for him.  Then again, if it were easy then what would be the fun of the show?  Shit, one serial killer up against another provides a lot of crazy drama for sure...they are both so creepily smart & so similar it's tricky to not know what the other is up to.  Here's my beef with last nights episode...Dexter is always extremely aware of his surroundings & when Trinity followed him to the police station he was right behind him in his usual gray van & Dex didn't notice?  Now, about Batista & LaGuerta getting married...I understand they did it to prevent losing their jobs but aren't they going to have to start telling their coworkers & not just Dexter?  I wonder how the others will take it?  One other thing I have a feeling about is Quinn & Deb...I think that next season Quinn is going to put the moves on Deb to try to find out what Dexter is up to & then they will fall in love which he wasn't planning on, blah blah blah.  To be perfectly honest I really wish she would leave the show...she's way too skinny & man-ish & I can't stand the way she talks.

Ok, on to Californication...this episode was a good one.  I thoroughly enjoyed Hank having to sit through lunch with 4 women he slept with in the recent past & then someone that Karen slept with as well.  I know he's a big player but I still think that him & Karen are cute together.  It also appears that the truth about him & Mia is going to come out next week in the finale & I'm guessing that when it does Karen will not be happy & she'll take Becca & move to NY leaving Hank all on his own in LA.  Personally I think the show could do without Becca...again, I hate the way she talks & her character could really use some work, unless it's just poor acting, it's hard to tell since I've never seen her in anything else.  Now, if Hank does move to NY the show will be pointless so obviously something is going to happen to keep him in LA but I really wish that Karen would stay too.  Maybe they could stay in LA & send their daughter to NY?  I have to also say that I kind of hope Marcy & Charlie stay together, I mean come on...he got a tramp stamp with her name on it!!  Marcy is my favorite character on the show so I just really hope she stays around for my sake.

6 more days until the season finale of both shows...can't wait!!

MTV Finales!

Ok so you are all likely fully aware that The Hills & The City are major guilty pleasures for me & the season finale of both were on Tuesday night & we need to discuss them.

The Hills:  Ok, first of all I need to ask if you guys thought that Heidi had even more work done?  I know she changed her hair as it was more yellow when it's usually white but something about her face wasn't right.  Aside from her face not being right I can say for certain that she isn't dumb do you have to be to try to trick your husband into having a baby?  What's the big effen hurry?  My question to Spencer is that if she was behaving that way why didn't you leave her?  I'm sorry but there is no way in hell I would stay with someone who is that sneaky & conniving that they would be attempting to "hijack sperm" as he put it.  I also think she's a freaking idiot for marrying him in the first place when he obviously didn't want kids!  People don't just get married & then suddenly want children, usually they either want them or they don't & sure there are those who say "sure some day just not now" which is where Spencer finally landed but personally I think it's just to appease her for now.  The next time the subject comes back up I'd be very curious to see what's discussed then & see if Spencer does actually say "let's do it".  My final remark on these 2 is Enzo...he was much cuter when he called Spencer "Spender" and now, he's just a kid.

Kristin is an idiot & so is Audrina oh & so is Brody...personally I'm sure he'll go back to plastic Jayde one more time & she'll get knocked up & he'll be screwed.  Obviously it would be best if Kristin & Brody got back together as they seem good for each other but then there wouldn't be any drama which is the purpose that Justin Bobby serves.  When Audrina said "I'm going to meet him to say what I want finally" I thought; send the bastard an email, why dignify the situation with face time?  Not to mention that he still got the last word!

Last can I say, why is Lo still on the show?  She was in like 2 pointless.

The City:  Look, I know she's a mean rude, honest, evil bitch but I love Kelly Cutrone!  I love how rude she is to Roxy & I hope that Roxy is gone next season because I don't like her.  I thought that Whitney's clothes were awful & I'm not kidding, the only thing she showed that I would wear was the little white jacket.  I really doubt that Whitney's line will take off, it looks cheap & is really doesn't seem like she's doing a nod to the 90's it seems like she's trying to recreate them & we don't need that!

With the Erin/Olivia mess I of course side with Erin because I like her & Olivia is just a wanna be socialite with no skills & a bad attitude.  When your boss tells you that you got the wrong sizes & you didn't get enough you shouldn't tell them that's the best you can do & leave for the day!  She has acted like she knows better than Erin from the get go so I hope they are able to figure that mess out because realistically I'd like to see Olivia vanish from the show altogether.

Serena & her Thanksgiving gear!

WTF is with this character on Gossip Girl?  Last year I wrote a blog post about her inappropriate outfit at Thanksgiving dinner & a million other places & this years turkey day outfit was no exception!  At first glance I thought to myself "again with the tits at a family function?" but then later when I got a full frontal & rear view of what I thought was a trashy ass dress I realized that it was in fact a freaking catsuit!  I don't know about you guys but I if rolled up at a family dinner in a skin tight black catsuit that appeared to be purchased at Frederick's of Hollywood I'd definitely receive quite a bit of flack for it but not Serena.  There she is sitting at the dining table with everyone else, who is appropriately dressed by the way, and nobody is thinking twice about her apparel?  I'm sorry but the wardrobe stylist for this show obviously needs some counseling, like it's not bad enough that all of these 16-18 year old kids are drinking at family dinner & in bars but then they are dressing Serena like a total skank.  I understand that Serena is supposed to be the "bad girl" but not all bad girls dress like whores. The thing that worries me the most is that I read in Us Weekly that Blake (who plays Serena) approves her entire wardrobe herself due to concern for hemlines.  Really, someone says "this will be your turkey day outfit" & she says "perfect"?  I would also like to point out that her concern for hemlines is obviously that they are usually not short enough...if you view the post that I linked to at the top of this post you can check out pics for yourself.  Aside from Serena being dressed like a trash bag I thought everyone else looked really cute & I totally loved Blair's dress!! Oh yeah, I was really disappointed with Serena for leaving with Trip instead of staying with Nate...Nate is hot & Trip is not!

Friggin Dexter!

OMG, this season has been so impressive and it just keeps getting more and more intense!  There are only 2 episodes left and I'm on the edge of my seat and have been since the middle of the season.  Tonight was certainly no exception & all I have to say is thank God Dexter was able to complete part of his mission but that Trinity gets more and more creepy and smart every single episode.  Last week I was totally thrown to find out that the reporter chick is his daughter & learning more about the two of them tonight was definitely key info.  I cannot wait to see how this all plays out & I hope that next season stays on the same note & isn't boring like the 3rd season. Now I'm off to watch Californication, I'm totally loving this whole Rick Springfield storyline.

Ok so last night after work I got home & watched the AMA's & thank god I opted to DVR took me 46 minutes to watch the entire 3 hours because I skipped all the awards & annoying performances by Green Day & that hot country singer that's married to one of the weirdest women in showbiz, what is is name?  I paused just to see his face for a second (because it's a nice one)...oh yeah, ok, sorry there...Keith Urban is his name.  Anyway, Rihanna's performance was kind of blah, I started FF about half way through, I really enjoyed Jay Z's, Lady GaGa's, and The Black Eyed Peas.  Everyone else (including Whitney) was either blah, boring, or I just don't like them so I skipped it for that reason.

Now, we need to discuss J-Lo & Adam Lambert of course.  Let's start with J-Lo, first of all can I say that her song that she sang is reminded me of Womanizer, like I need to hear her say "Louboutin's" 30 times in one song?  I was really looking forward to watching her fall & was hoping that she might just bounce a little across the stage due to her large firm booty but no such luck!  J-Lo is a great performer in the fact that she just jumped right up & kept on cruising, like she should wasn't very noticeable that she had fallen, I was waiting for it so of course I saw it but I know some people who didn't catch it.  I can say for sure that nobody on the West coast saw it & that is bull shit...why is she so awesome that her flaws get edited out for everyone on that side of the country? 

Now Adam...who makes the gay Adams I know look like the Marlboro Man!  His performance was pretty whack to say the least.  I don't think it made sense first of all, I couldn't tell if the song was pop or 80's rock or maybe an amped up show tune!  Him having the guy look like he was blowing him, making out with that other guy, being groped by chicks & having a chick appear to be blowing him didn't bother me one bit.  I say have at it, do whomever you want but don't let it ruin your performance.  He was so focused on all the shock value that I think he lost site of the task at hand...when he jumped over that guy & was rolling all over the stage & you could hear the stage banging against his mic...not entertaining.  Trying to keep an eye on him as he moved all over in a quick motion...not entertaining & most of all, looking at his tongue hanging out every single time he held his mouth open...really not entertaining at all.  Given the title of the track "For Your Entertainment" I'd have to say that I was in fact not entertained at all.  For a second I kind of thought I was listening to Skid Row...which is fine, so long as it is in fact Skid Row!

Can I please ask, what is with Rihanna's tattoo down the center of her chest?  WTF does it say & who the hell would seriously put a tat there?  It's going to ruin her whole fashion icon image that she's been rocking, IMHO anyway!  Speaking of her fashions I really did enjoy this mohawk & Leeloo style outfit with the sweet ass lights in the shoulder pads.  How can I get an outfit with lights in the shoulder pads because I think that would be awesome!  What I wold like even more though is her banging body that can sport said Leeloo outfit better than Milla herself & the only reason I say that is Rihanna has curves & Milla doesn't.  Speaking of curves...what was with Gaga's gear?  I know she usually dresses awful but that costume did nothing for her at all, she looked worse than I have ever seen but her face didn't look as scary as it usually does.

Project Runway Finale!

So yet again I'm disappointed in a finale.  Irina won Season 6 of Project Runway which was aired this season on Lifetime after spending the first five seasons on Bravo!  While I was happy that the show didn't change after switching networks there was one designer that had a really shitty attitude, was always bitching about everyone else & going on and on about how awesome she was & not in a cute way (like Christian Syriano) and that designer was Irina.  I do give the girl credit, she's a great designer but I was not very impressed with her entirely black & gray collection or her 13th look which is pictured left.  One thing
I will say though is that her model Kaylen was my favorite of all of the models so I'm happy that she won.
The other 2 designers in the competition were Althea & Carol Hannah & I really enjoyed both of their collections though I was really rooting for Althea.  I think that had she created a couple "red carpet" type looks then she may have won but with her collection being mostly knits & sportswear & separates her show catered to the general public & that's not the point of a fashion show unfortunately.  The look that Althea is working on to the right was one of my favorites in the show, I really enjoyed the way that it was cut & flowy & tailored at the same time.  Being a short girl I always lean more toward the short skirts & things that would compliment me & I think this dress would be flattering on most anyone.  I also really liked the blue knit cardigan that was structured with the big shoulders...I couldn't pull it off but I still enjoyed it.  So up next was Carol Hannah & I liked her collection but do agree with the judges that there didn't seem to be a common thread with the collection, it was more like a walking closet in my opinion.   Carol Hannah is a wonderful designer & she does amazing tailoring & makes beautiful
dresses & gowns but she doesn't really do much in the way of pants & for a competition like this you really need to pull out all the stops.  She did have a couple pairs of pants but it was mostly dresses & gowns though I will totally commend her on her choice of colors because Althea used all neutrals & then Irina used all black & Gray so it was nice to see Carol Hannah's models coming out in teal & maroon & I will say that her first dress (pictured left) was so effing cute & again, it's short but due to the draping on the bottom it would make my ass look way too big to wear it but it's still super adorable.
So my other complaint about the show as a whole is that Michael Kors & Nina Garcia were hardly ever there to judge so how can they be there in the finale to judge these collections & act like they've watched these girls grow when in fact they have hardly been around at all.  One more thing...the funniest thing about this episode was the guest judge Suzy Menkes & her "Something About Mary" hairstyle & noticeable mustache, how can someone who looks like this be a judge of anything related to fashion?
If you are afraid that you are going to go through Runway withdrawals don't worry, the new season is starting on January 17th!!

New Scrubs...

First of all let me say that I didn't like the first Scrubs & when I heard it was being canceled I was very happy that I would no longer be running across it when flipping channels during prime time. Well, last night I was watching Modern Family & saw a commercial for the new season of Scrubs with an all new class! Well, this annoyed me of course but I know that there are some people who like this show so if you want to check out "Scrubs: The New Class" (not actually called that but I'm a SBTB fan) then you will be able to find it on Tuesdays at 9 pm on ABC starting December 1, for more (it looks like some of the old cast will be involved) info click this!

Top Chef is getting tight

Oh man, Top Chef is getting crazy now & I'm getting nervous for the remaining chefs.  My 2 favorites are still remaining and I'm rooting for Kevin to take it all...Bryan is 2nd & really I don't care much for Jen or Michael purely because of their attitude.  For me, food is a lot about attitude not just cooking & neither of those two ever smile or seem to enjoy what they are doing one bit so how the hell are people supposed to enjoy your cooking when you don't appear to enjoy cooking it or don't stand by what you cooked.  See, Kevin is often criticized for making food that is too simple but guess what?  It always tastes good and he's always happy to serve his food, to explain his food, and he always stands by his dish regardless of what the judges have to say.  I think Bryan is similar to Kevin in his attitude as well but the difference between these two is that Bryan makes more "fancy" food & has way more techniques than Kevin does.  What's more important taste or skill?  For me it's taste, I don't care how pretty your plate is because I'm going to demolish it when I eat everything on it!!

Jen & Michael both seem to get offended when the judges don't like what they made which is understandable but you can't let criticism ruin your style & craft, accept it, learn from it, and move forward.  I was sad to see Eli go mainly because I liked his personality, I don't remember any of his dishes really so obviously he didn't make an impact on me but I did enjoy his bickering with Robin :)  So, peace out Eli, we shall see you at the reunion!

So I watched the finale of America's Next Top Model last night and like I said in the previous post, I would be cool with whomever won but I totally lied.  I was extremely disappointed with the outcome, which was Laura losing.  I think Nicole is a good model in photos but her walk is awful and the girl has zero personality & those are 2 of the 3 most important things in modeling.  Laura on the other hand is amazing in photos, has a great walk, and she has the best personality I've ever seen, her only flaw is the way she dresses.  Well, I guess my pick can't win every season but this really bums me out!  I wonder if next season they will do all plus size models?  When is this show going to end?  I mean, how many out of work top models can she keep creating?  I do see some of the girls in the occasional ad, commercial, or movie/TV show, but 95% of the time it's girls who didn't win.  I never see the winner in any Cover Girl ads even though they supposedly have a contract with them but whatever, I'm sure I will be seeing Laura all over the place!!  So, congrats Nicole, you grew a lot but I still don't think you deserve it so make sure you really work it & earn what you won.

ANTM Final 2!

OMG, last night's episode was kind of scary for me...I haven't been too impressed with this season of America's Next Top Model but with a cast of short chicks I couldn't pass it up!  So, from the get go I've been rooting for Laura, the southern girl who lives on a farm & castrates bulls for a living (that's her in the photo) and I'm so happy that she's in the final 2.  The 2 girls I couldn't stand went home & the 2 girls I liked the most are the top 2 for the finale this coming week so regardless of who wins I'll be happy although I still hope it's Laura.  The other girl Nicole is kind of awkward & her personality in person is kind of meh but then there's Laura who has a thick southern accent but is super bubbly & friendly in person.  When it comes to photos it's a toss up because they both take beautiful pictures and judging by the preview for the finale they both appear to struggle with their Cover Girl commercials so I'm guessing the final straw is going to be the runway show.  

They are doing a runway show in Hawaii for a designer that I can't recall at the moment but it looks like a good show with water & wind & fire & all that fun stuff so I hope Laura can rock it but if she doesn't win I won't be totally upset.  The finale airs Wednesday the 18th at 8 pm on The CW, for more info or to watch full episodes check the link to the CW on the left side of the page.

9021 Oh this is getting stupid!

I would like to complain about how the first season of 90210 lured all of us fans of the old series in with Kelly, Brenda, Donna, and Nat and now none of them are on it.  I've been watching this show every week and I have no idea why...well, currently it's just to see Jackie die but it seems that's right around the corner so it's about time I give up.  There are too many characters, the show is too overdone with drama that is more annoying than anything else, and every time I get into a story line it turns into something else.  The whole adopted Dixon thing is pretty stupid if you ask me, he doesn't fit with their family at all, he shows no signs of his previous life & he was adopted way too late in life to just become some goody goody & Brandon Walsh he is not! 

The girl that plays Annie is not a good actor nor is her stupid boyfriend...he reminds me of a serial killer with his crazy eyes!  I like Silver, Naveed, Kelly, and the principal but other than that this show sucks donkey balls.  Once Jackie is dead I'm done unless they show me more Donna, Kelly, Brenda & I mean it this time!

Mad Men Season 3 Finale

So this season of Mad Men ends with mixed emotions for me.  First of all let me say that I'm happy with how the company ended up, everyone back together working for themselves & each other the way they used to.  It's good to have Joan back with the guys, Peggy standing up for herself, Don realizing what a prick he'd been, and him & Roger repairing their bond.  I will say that Don & Betty actually splitting up doesn't sit well with me...sure he's a lying cheating son of a bitch though almost all of the guys were & their wives just looked the other way but even though he had affair after affair I still always loved the way he loved her.  If I were her I'd leave him too, given not only the infidelity but more so his lies about who he really is, not emotionally but literally...that would really bother me to be married to someone & not even know their real name!!  Still, for shows sake, I prefer them together dammit probably because I don't like this other guy (Henry) she's about to shack up with & though I don't like kids I feel bad for them.  Speaking of kids, can I just say that their kids are so well behaved the majority of the time, they listen when spoken to, do what they are told & don't talk know why?  Spanking & honestly, I really wish people still practiced it because too many kids know there are no actual consequences to their actions so they just behave however they want & mom can shake a finger & say no but I'll bet if she slapped them upside the head they would actually stop.  Kids no longer fear their parents!  Anyway, that's off topic but I needed to make the point.

So, do we think that Roger & Joan will hook back up?  Do we think that Betty will actually Henry?  Does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that Henry is abusive?  Do we think that Don will get back with Miss Farrell?  Is anyone else pissed that they didn't leave Pete Campbell behind on the new firm deal?  Oh man, how am I going to make it until next season?  I'm already going crazy & it just ended last night!!

Don't Be Tardy!!

So tonight is the big night where we get to watch Kim perform her hit song Don't Be Tardy for the Party for the very first time.  Now this song was a very controversial topic of this season & I'll be very curious to hear the comments from the rest of the cast after she's done.  I did see in the previews that Kandi obviously admits to using the auto-tune but I'm dying to hear her answer Andy's question "do you think Kim is tone deaf", Kandi isn't the lying type so I'll be curious to hear her response.  They should also be talking about how all the gay men in the ATL seemed to be rocking high heels & I'm very curious about that as well.  If you haven't seen the first half of the reunion it's on at 8:00 before this part 2 airs at 9:00 and after that is over you can catch the first episode of the new season of Real Housewives of Orange County at 10:00.

On this new season of OC crew we have a new lady named is Alexis (who looks like a soap star with her plastic surgery & mask of makeup) joining the bunch but unfortunately for all of us Vicki is still on the show though I'm hoping that her husband has finally grown a pair & left her because he could do way better.  Speaking of Vicki's husband Don that brings me to Jeana who appears to have gained back all of the weight she odd that it takes forever to lose weight but about half the time to gain it back!  Oh yeah & if you haven't heard, Gretchen is now dating Slade, who used to be with Jo back on season one...interesting!

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz & THE Cute Guy Axed

For those of us who unfortunately watch the disaster that is Melrose Place there is a slight glimmer of hope...Ashlee (Violet is her character) has been booted from the show.  The copy I have of Us Magazine says that she was only put on the show to attract viewers because of who she is which makes no sense to me because after the SNL fiasco her career has been in the shitter.  Anyway, the copy I have says that the producers thought she was awful & planned to write her off the show from the get go & obviously having her on didn't work for ratings because they aren't that good & all they keep doing is bringing back old characters one after the other.  I'm sorry but if all of these actors are so eager to get back to the show why the hell did they end it to begin with?  Back to Ashlee, now the producers are saying it was always intended that she be written off & they were very happy with her acting & loved watching her.  I call bull shit...nobody is enjoying watching her, she's terrible!  Her costar Colin Egglesfield is also being written off & I don't know why...he's the ONLY cute guy on the show but whatever...there is no info on why he's been evicted as well but I guess we'll see the last of their faces in January...if I can keep watching that long.  With Heather Locklear back I don't know if I can do it, she's the reason I stopped watching the original series!
