A change of scenery might provide a new inroad into the character
Snooki says shots of breast milk are the only shots she's had
Well, we knew Snooki giving birth would change everything, and this clip from Tuesday's episode of "Snooki & JWOWW" (airing at 10 p.m.) is just further proof of it. Instead of hitting a club, forgetting her underwear, and staggering home, Snooki instead curls up on the sofa with her friend JWOWW and their significant others Jionni and Roger. Yes, they do shots, but not of booze -- of breast milk. It's not high tea or anything, but it's quite a bit calmer than their pre-baby antics, isn't it?
Warning: This may be disturbing to some viewers
It turns out that every tiny niche of daily existence from the cradle to the grave has been plumbed for the purposes of creating reality TV. To make that case, Discovery Fit & Health has created "Funeral Boss," a series about life (and death) at a mortuary premiering tonight at 10 p.m. As this show isn't for everyone, this exclusive clip may not be, either, so consider yourself warned.
We weigh in on the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' casting process, too
Welcome to the latest installment of CulturePop! We had a lot to talk about this week, including David Bowie's new album, some reality TV faves and "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," and the rundown is posted below. We hope you'll listen!
Kim explains why she seemed loopy in Paris
So, the ladies are back in Los Angeles, and that means no jogging by the Siene, no beheading ducks, none of Kyle's terrible fake French accent. Thankfully, drama follows these women around like vultures after a wagon train or high school chicks after Justin Bieber. It doesn't matter where they are, they can find something to scream, argue or cry about. Remember, Kyle and Kim managed to have a physical altercation in a limo. I mean, that takes some effort.
Does he propose to Catherine, Lindsay or neither one?
OMG! Can you believe it? Sean is going to pick either Lindsay or Catherine! Or neither! And, if he picks one of them, he'll probably break up with her in a few months! Okay, that was a little negative, I know, but let's face it; the odds are rarely in anyone's favor on this show. Yes, it's very romantic, it's fun to watch, but it doesn't usually translate into actual, you know, nuptials.
NeNe suggests that Porsha's under her husband's thumb, but is that fair?
The ladies' trip to Los Angeles is about a minute long, as the real focus is not to promote NeNe's TV show (which, by the way, is pretty awful) but to get the women to Sin City, pronto. Everyone seems eager to get to Vegas, but not everyone seems excited about the sin part. Or, more specifically, Porsha isn't excited about the sin part, because Kordell doesn't approve. Or maybe he would and Porsha's blaming him, or maybe he just doesn't know. Things get a little confusing on this episode, but then, you can't really expect Porsha to put together a coherent argument about anything.
It's been a busy week, so get all your reality news here, now
Welcome to Reality TV Roundup -- a quick look at some of the reality TV-centric stories that have recently popped up across the fine, old Interwebs. Click away, my couch potato friends. But before you do...
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! One more time: SPOILER ALERT. If you watch any competition shows, the latest elimination for each show is probably revealed in the text below. The hope is that, if you missed this week's program and would rather clear out your DVR than watch the episode, you can get a quick hit here. But don't come crying to me if you find out something you didn't want to know. You've been warned. Also note: lots of non-competition reality info lurks below, too.
Real high school students get to influence the vote
I decided to check in with "Project Runway" this week because the two other shows I now recap on Thursday nights ("Scandal" and "The Vampire Diaries") are in reruns, and boy, I'm glad I did. This week is the duct tape (or, to be brand specific, Duck Tape) challenge, and better yet, the assignment is to make friggin' prom dresses. I love this idea, and I'm hoping the designers go nuts with it. These days, duct tape (or, really Duck Tape) is available in all kinds of crazy prints and patterns. Not where I shop, of course, because I would buy some. Not sure where I'd use it, but I would find a use for zebra print duct tape in my house because it is just too awesome to stick under your sink.
