Salvador Dali, the '60s, lone wolves and more inspire the final 4
So, we're getting down to the wire (or the inseam) on "Project Runway," and in this episode, our final four get to head home, invite Tim Gunn over, spend way too much time alone thinking about concepts and French seams and whatever, make really weird choices, then head back to New York. I'm beginning to feel as if every collection we see at this stage, with a few notable fabulous exceptions, takes a left turn at crazy and hits the gas. This week's episode we again see a lot of WTF choices, and it doesn't make me look forward to Fashion Week at all.
It's prom night, but corsages are the least of anyone's worries
Ah, prom. I remember my prom (which wasn't even called a prom at my weird ass high school) mostly revolving around what to wear and finding shoes that did not make dancing a hellacious misery. Vampires and witches and werewolves (oh my) still have to worry about all that crap PLUS fret about the cure, Expressionism (not the art movement), white oak stakes and spooky shape shifters who get inside one's head. Really, no teenager can ever bitch about not being able to find the right nail polish to match her corsage ever, ever again.
Warning: don't let the cricket drive you crazy
The on-screen and off-screen nice guy talks tone, Tessa
Jeremy Sisto seems to be one of those genuinely nice, normal guys who, while common in the real world, are like ridiculously rare in Hollywood. So it's fitting that he's been playing nice, normal George on "Suburgatory," which has a two-part season finale tonight (Wed. April 17 at 8:00 p.m.). A while back I had a chance to visit the set and talk to Sisto about the show, George's relationships with Tessa and Dallas, and why he's looking forward to playing something other than George for a while.
The former "Lost" star says her new character isn't a bad girl
As Belle on "Once Upon A Time," Emilie de Ravin captured the smart, bookish but good-hearted essence of the familiar Disney character. Since Belle lost her memory, though, the actress gets to stretch a little. This Sunday we'll get to see more of Belle's new personality (created by Regina) after she leaves the hospital and is free to pursue her own interests. Her first stop isn't a library, either. I spoke to de Ravin about Lacey, why this barfly character isn't bad herself but is drawn to bad boys, and why she never wanted to be a Disney princess as a kid.
Is a whole episode of Kim, Kroy and the kids just too much?
In tonight's double-episode premiere of "Don't Be Tardy..." we get a little closer to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak. The question is whether or not we wanted or needed to do exactly that. While I was never a huge Kim fan, I sometimes found her to be surprisingly sharp-witted, tossing out pithy insights about as often as curse words (okay, maybe there were more curse words. Girl swears a lot).
The captains talk about deaths, injuries and why fishing is a 'jail at sea'
A new housewife joins the cast, but doesn't make much of an impression
On last night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," many significant things occurred. Tamra and Vicki made up (that was quick, right?), we learned Heather has a problem child (which totally messes with her perfect facade), and we met the new Housewife. On paper, Lydia McLaughlin appears to be a perfect fit for "The Real Housewives" franchise. Her family came from money, she describes herself as a princess, and her husband takes her out for date night on their private boat. Sounds just right, doesn't she?
The gimmick of adding two pros to each dance made for a crowded night
I think we can all agree that tonight was an unfortunate night for "Dancing with the Stars" to test drive a new gimmick. By plopping a second pair of dancers -- polished professionals -- into each routine, the floor seemed crowded at a time when most people were likely distracted by thoughts of what had happened in Boston, of what they'd seen on the news moments earlier. Sorting out which couple was the one to watch and which couple was simply good was a little more effort than maybe some of us wanted to dedicate to reality TV tonight.
NeNe and Phaedra fight, and later there is actually hugging
So, we're now two-thirds of the way through "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion, and I'm pretty sure all of these women are just damn tired. There's not a lot of yelling at this point, and everyone seems more hungry than actually pissed off about things that happened months ago that they've mostly forgotten. Plus, it doesn't help that the weight of their false eyelashes is starting to make their faces sag, poor dears.
While Kenya tries her level best to throw herself into arguments that have nothing to do with her, Cynthia says something forgettable and Porsha doesn't make a peep, this episode really belongs to NeNe and, to a lesser extend, Phaedra. Oh, and I can't forget Kim. You remember Kim, right? The one who stomped off the show a while back? Yeah, she returns for some reason, probably to subtly remind us her spin-off show debuts on Tuesday. And there is hugging, which really suggests these women might be fully delirious.
