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.
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.
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.
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.
It's Culture Pop #4, and we may not entirely have the hang of this thing yet, but we're getting there! Tune in to hear us talk about this stuff:
During last night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," we got to experience what the very rich can do when they're in Paris. They can take cooking classes which may or may not involve sad little duck carcasses. They can shop in high end stores, take Segway tours of the city, jog by the Siene and basically have an indulgent, lovely holiday that's boring as hell to watch if you're not, say, getting an expensive purse, too. The lifestyles of the rich and boring weren't all that was on display, however. We also got to see Kim fall apart, which is becoming a regular feature of the show. It's also one that's getting more and more uncomfortable to see.
I usually look forward to The Women Tell All installment of "The Bachelor," though I'm not quite sure why. As much as ABC hypes the crap out of it, and as many times as Chris Harrison promises the most exciting/most stunning/most whatever moment ever, it's usually just some warmed over clips, some testy moments and much ado about not very much at all. As heated as things get during the season, by the time the women and the bachelor are trapped on a soundstage together for this episode, most of the fire has died down to a low simmer of resentment. The most hated woman is lightly chastised, then dismissed. The rejected flames get weepy, but say they're over it. Well, most of them do, anyway.
For those of you chomping at the bit to see the next season of "Downton Abbey" (and for those of you who are still slogging through season 3, SPOILER ALERT), here's a hint of what's to come thanks to a new photo.
Last night, we were treated to yet another version of former Kenya Moore on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Having waited nervously for the results of three breast biopsies, the former Miss USA determined that, for the sake of her health, she's going to be Zen Kenya -- taking deep breaths instead of tearing into Porsha for her inability to make coffee, for example, and refusing to be pulled into the drama that always swirls around these women.
