Who Wants to Slap Some Sense Into Jillian? June 29, 2009

Filed under: Primetime,Reality — thedogwoodtree @ 7:05 pm


Well then, you can get in line behind me!  One plus of this show is that I really like her wardrobe…   Now, Wes is just so aces, right?  His family would be happy to tell you how jealous other men have always been of him.  Barf.  He’s admitted on the show time and time again that he’s here to gain publicity.  And this is yet another reason that Jillian Harris is, for lack of a better or nicer term, a fucking idiot.  She deserves what she gets.  This guy’s a champion chump, but that makes him a number one stunna and Jillian the moron that is falling for his schtick.  I hope he’s the one with flaccid pee-pee problems.

Though my heart belongs to reality on Bravo, ABC gets my vote for scripted television programs.  And I’ve now had the opportunity to see the fall previews that we have to look forward to in a few short months.  I’ve already revealed that Drea de Matteo will be the “new” Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives, but are you wondering what else we have in store?  Well, lucky for all the ladies out there, Brothers & Sisters has cast DWTS and SATC hunk Gilles Marini as a guest starring love interest for Sarah.  Now, I don’t know for certain what date B&S returns but I do know that Desperate Housewives is back on screen September 27th. Click HERE to see ABC’s fall lineup if you want to see what’s in store for the rest of their devoted fan club.  I plan on trying out Cougar Town and Eastwick, personally!


Sopranos Whore the New Desperate Whore?

Drea de Matteo, best known for her role on The Sopranos as Christopher Moltisanti’s big-haired fiancee Adriana la Cerva, has been cast as the newest vixen to grace the streets of Wisteria Lane.


Adriana was shot in the woods after tattling to the Feebies in season 6, so we can only hope for her sake that if she does experience an exit from Desperate Housewives, it’s far more pleasant than that one!

Who wouldn't want to scoop this up?

According to People magazine, Melissa Rycroft is engaged to her boyfriend, Tye Strickland.  They’v dated off and on for two years (the off being before she won Bachelor Jason Mesnick’s heart only to get dumped for fellow contestant Molly at the After the Final Rose).  So, she got the guy…just not the guy she went on the show for.  Congrats, Melissa.  Let’s see if they make it to the aisle.


Finger Lickin’ Fifteen: Not a Happy Meal

Typically, I love Janet Evanovich’s depiction of Stephanie Plum and her over-the-top Jersey girl slapstick comedy.  But did I love Finger Lickin’ Fifteen?  NO, I did not.  This was a bad weekend for me!  Between the disappointment of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen and the disappointment of Finger Lickin’ Fifteen, I would have been better off crawling into a hole and avoiding all types of entertainment. 




Daisy of Love…Did she find it? June 28, 2009

Filed under: Reality — thedogwoodtree @ 8:25 pm

I’ve been reading reports that over the past few weeks, Daisy de la Hoya of VH1’s Daisy of Love, the posts which have repeatedly gotten the most hits on my blog, has been up to no good.  She was admitted to the hospital for a possible overdose after exhibiting exorcism-type behaviors (yep, it’s true, there’s a 911 call and everything saying so!) and has been hosting many lame parties around L.A.

So the question is, did she find love?  Is this how a woman “in love” behaves?  Maybe.  She did date Dave Navarro after his split with Carmen Electra, so she clearly leads a veeery wild lifestyle.  And she was a Poison groupie once upon a time, even before Rock of Love.

In the latest couple of shows, a lot happened, but not that much worth mentioning.  It boils down to this: her and 12 Pack/Dave had sex, Big Rig went home, London came back and she let him stay, and she sent Chi Chi home in his place.  Meaning she’s left with 4 suitors (12 Pack, Flex, Sinister, and London) yet again and next week she looks into their history with ex girlfriends and the like.  I suspect it will be drama-free.  Not.  It should have about as much excitement as a Saturday night does for Daisy pre-ambulance and Linda Blair moves.


Transformers Didn’t Make the Grade June 26, 2009


If you haven’t seen Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, DO NOT READ THE BELOW POST UNLESS YOU WANT SPOILERS.  I’m going no holds barred!  This may be one of those movies that I need to let marinate.  But I have so many overwhelming thoughts and feelings about it that I can’t stop myself.  I didn’t love it.  It isn’t 1/10 of the movie that the original Transformers is.  And here’s a few reasons why:
