Last night, we flipped on TV to watch a fight and a Bachelor reunion broke out. *Ba-dum-bum* The only winner in Monday night's verbal slug-fest between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi was ABC. The rating-grabbing interview didn't help endear either D-lister to the public—although if we have to pick sides, we'll wave the flag for Team Vienna. It seems to be a popular choice.
The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi said they wanted "privacy" to deal with their breakup. But we don't think that word means what they think it means, because the former TV lovebirds are in the midst of a very public "he said/she said" war, dominating the headlines with conflicting tales of who dumped who and why.
On June 20, Showtime unveils The Real L Word, a reality show about the real lives of Los Angeles lesbians. If you think this sounds eerily familiar, you're right. The Real L Word is the reality kid sister of the network's similar, scripted series, The L Word. This "real" version, however, promises to give curious viewers a true-to-life glimpse into the lives of ladies who lust after ladies.
We can't help but remember our first loves, even if we'd rather forget them. Whether it was a high school sweetheart, your first real relationship after college, or the first person you said "I love you" to, chances are that person still holds a powerful spell over you. Now a brand-new TV show is betting on the fact that—if you haven't already found him on Facebook—you'd like the opportunity to reconnect in real life. Or maybe on live TV. Each Wednesday, "First Love, Second Chance" follows a couple who have decided to reunite and discover whether they still have sparks. OK, we can see the appeal of re-discovering the one who got away, but what would possess someone to do it front of a large chunk of America? We asked a few of the "First Love, Second Chance" cast members to find out—including the pair who got their second go at true love last night.
The women told all, Rozlyn denied everything, and who knows how many production assistants burnt their fingers lighting a hundred, thousand tea lights. Much to our surprise, however, the show yielded some heartfelt, real-world dating tips that could help all of us find love. (Or at least a very, very special connection!) Remember these dating tips the next time you spot that special bachelor or bachelorette.
Remember when everyone was a Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, or Samantha? Well, now that the first season of scandal-fest reality TV Jersey Shore is over, it's high time to see where you would fit in in Guidette World. Maybe you don't wear hair extensions and Ed Hardy makes you hurl, but haven't we all brought home a few grenades? Read on to see whether you're most like Snooki, Sammi, J-WOWW, or Angelina "Jolie."
A "Bachelor contestant," Rozlyn Papa, is accused of cheating on Jake Pavelka. What's the big deal? Why is it OK for Jake to romance 25 women with wild abandon while the ladies are expected to sit at home and paint their toenails?
For someone who recorded a song called "Let's Talk About Sex," Sandra "Pep" Denton, (of Salt-N-Pepa fame), isn't getting a lot of it. In fact, she hasn't gone on a date, let alone done the deed, in over four years. After suffering a series of bad boyfriends, Pep removed herself from the market in hope that she would magically meet her soul mate. Surprise, surprise, he never made an appearance. "I've had my share of relationships," Pep, 45, laments in the trailer for her new show, Let's Talk About Pep. "But believe it or not, I'm still single! And now I'm ready to get my feet wet again."
Let the airing of grievances begin! Jerry Seinfeld is returning to NBC in February with a new, unscripted series called The Marriage Ref, serving as co-producer along with Ellen Rakieten (rake it in?) of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Jerry explains that this is "not a therapy show, it's a comedy show," pointing out that some of the funniest TV programs throughout history have been about marriage.
Cindy Margolis is back in the limelight. The internet's most downloaded woman has a television program on Fox, debuting January 30, 201. The show, entitled "Seducing Cindy", chronicles the newly-single Margolis' attempts to find a bloke. And, given her documented fertility issues, she is requiring the gentlemen to produce a sperm sample (in a cup, we guess).
The season finale of 'The Biggest Loser' had us rooting for everyone. (It's difficult to choose "the best" when every contestant shed so many pounds. Luckily, the scale was impartial and chose Danny.) But even more heart-grabbing was the romance that Alexandra (voted off in week one) and Antoine (voted off in week two) found at the ranch. In fact, the show has produced two marriages and even a baby (take that, Bachelor) and several relationships. Here, our top three 'Biggest Loser' couples.
A reality show isn't the greatest place to find true love (just ask any of the Flavor of Love/Rock of Love girls, Bachelors and Bachelorettes), and it certainly isn't an ideal environment for an already-in-love couple's relationship to blossom. We're all painfully aware of the destruction reality TV has caused Jon and Kate Gosselin, but let's take a look at some of the other big-time couples who have been cursed by the small screen....Hulk and Linda Hogan, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, Peter Andre and Katie Price, Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler...
A former participant on ABC's Wife Swap is out on bail after an arrest for stabbing her husband. New Jersey resident Jamie Czerniawski cut husband Charles Czerniawski with a kitchen knife after an argument. The former Miss Teen New Jersey claims that she used the weapon in self-defense as her husband attacked her over some flirty text messages were seen on her phone.
Taking a break from fighting with his ex, Kate Gosselin, and defending his relationship with his current, Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin spent Saturday afternoon hosting a highly hyped Las Vegas pool party at the MGM Grand's Wet Republic - during which he collected lots of phone numbers from scantily clad ladies.
YourTango this week was all about your favorite dating accessory: Him! From men's tastes in music to their capacity to forgive, if you were paying attention this week, you now know a lot more about him. But, in case you were too busy falling ever deeper in love with your own man, here's this week's best, from YourTango.
Yes awe-struck readers, according to TLC president Eileen O'Neill, when Jon & Kate Plus 8 returns this Monday, we're going to see a whole new side to the family. The show will now chronicle the lives of each parent, trying to raise the children without the other one present. Such fun outing will include Kate trying to erect a tent (no pun indented) in the back yard and Jon trying to cook a pizza for the kids. How many pizzas would you need to feed eight kids anyhow? However, beyond the child rearing storyline, the duo will also be trying to find new companionship and the show will (expectedly) go into that as well. And if anyone really cares, the "iconic" (O'Neill's word not ours) couch will be replaced by two chairs from which the couple will be interviewed. We assume it's because having a couch from Maryland to New York might be a bit of a stretch.
As if we could ever get the nasty residue of "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic" from our eyeballs, Kevin Federline is looking to give reality television another shot and the general public another reason to give up on television altogether. In this potential upcoming series, Federline would star alongside his new girlfriend, former AVP volleyball player Victoria Price. So think 'Chaotic' but with another blonde.
