Sorry girls and boys for not writing last week…….
A recap – No one went home last week, the big ‘loving’ family won the challenge so there was NO elimination….Fabulous right?
Well…this week…Crazy purple team has about lost their minds. Well Tracy has lost her mind. Now…This is lady is a complete…and I repeat complete LOONEY TOON. I feel bad for her partner, the loveable Coach Moe. Who needs to stop being such a ‘coach’ and speak his mind. Tracy decided to give up the trainers for a week, for a 2 pound advantage at the weigh-in. Jillian gave Tracy a piece of her mind, which I lovedBiggest Loser goes on for WAY too long sometimes. All the challenges, and non-sense. It isn’t Biggest Loser without tempting these people with SWEETS…..So first temptation of the season. Which…Tracy the lose canon once again decides that she will go ahead and eat cupcakes so that she has the possibilty of controlling who’s weight counts for the week before they get on the scale……Well, Tracy and Antoine are the only two who eat…Tracy eats 4 cupcakes 100 calories each…Well, the entire group is shocked considering Tracys rash behavior earlier in the week….We go back to the gym…and who is waiting for us..Jillian and my beloved Bob. Well, of course the group goes through the explaination of what happened…Jillian says something like “who would be so stupid to eat those for control of the weigh-in?” Well…Psycho TRACY! Jillian rips into Tracy and basically her and Bob openly don’t like this woman…..

The green team wins the challenge of carrying up all the weight to the top of this ramp type thing. They win immunity. I like green team, they are honest and strong. Now- i usually start disliking certain teams…Well this is a different season because I like everyone. The only person I don’t like is Tracy and that is because she is taking down coach MOE with her crazy ass! Sadly, Red Team goes home. Orange Team was also on the chopping block although considering Shay who started Biggest Loser at 467 pounds is on the orange team with vertan Dan (who was last seasons Biggest Person Ever) has now been topped by Shay. Red Team basically says “we have support systems and we aren’t as big as you” eventhough they are BIG. So Red Team scarafices….

Tune in for next week as Tracy might get what’s coming to her…..VOTED OFF.


The Bitch is Back and Boy Did I Miss Her

Last night’s premieres of The Hills and The City proved that being a bitch is always in style and more importantly, if you’re enough of one and come from a family with money, you can become famous for it. 


Let’s start with The Hills.  Lauren Conrad wasn’t much of a bitch, but Kristin Cavallari always has been and always will be.  But I like it.  LC was boring, but KC sure does bring some spice to The Hills.  You could easily have built a show just around her.  Other bitches on the show include Jayde Nicole, Brody’s girlfriend, who is more psycho jealous terror than bitch.  Then we have Stephanie Pratt, who wants so badly to be mean but she just can’t hack it.  Lo, but doesn’t even try and admitted that she didn’t want to be on Kristin’s bad side.  Lastly, poor Audrina who said that Kristin couldn’t have power to ruin their lives if they didn’t give it to her, then declined going to good friend Frankie’s party so she wouldn’t have to run in to her.  It seemed that Kristin didn’t do much to encourage Justin Bobby — mostly just acted like her usual chilled-out self, which keeps a steady stream of boys coming.  Yes, she’s a flirt, but this was mostly JB’s doing…


I’m quite interested to see who Jayde throws that drink at sometime this season.  That girl is trouble and I am shocked she and Brody are even still together — either she takes that rage to the sack or he’s lost his damn mind.  As for Speidi, well, what about them?  It was the usual crap: Spencer got his way on the “porno pad” while Heidi vaguely protested and then accepted it.  Good luck with that marriage!




Glorious Gossip September 29, 2009

Last night’s Gossip Girl reminded me of the many reasons why I came to fall in love with this show in the first place.  The twists!  The turns!  Georgina melodrama!  Here’s some of the best squabbles and foils of the evening:



1.  Carter Baizen is set up by Blair and Chuck so Serena will stop dating him.  After Carter helped S ruin his business meeting, Chuck was oh-so-happy to participate.


2.  Meanwhile, however, Georgina is causing trouble for Bluck (that’s their couple moniker).  She gives Blair a fake invitation for a collegitate secret society and an assignment to buy an old portrait up for auction.  Problem is, her friend works at the office of some guy Chuck is trying to woo into doing business with him.  The secretary convinces Chuck that he also needs to buy the portrait, and then the bidding war begins.  Chuck always wins in the end, though.

When Did B&S Become Doom & Gloom? September 27, 2009

The only thing that the season premiere of Brothers & Sisters accomplished was leaving me with a seriously icky feeling.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy it’s back, but I hope it can take a comedic turn here pretty quickly.  When we left off, there was both a lot and a little going on with the Walker clan.  Their return found Holly and Nora planning an engagement party for their respective children, now engaged.  When Holly realized Nora gave Justin an antique ring of her grandmother’s, not to be outdone, Holly bought them a car.  And that wasn’t all — she also planned an all-white celebration complete with a white baby grand piano.  The only problem is that the lovebirds aren’t singing such a happy tune right now.

Justin found out that Robert made some calls to get him in to med school, and his grades aren’t good enough to keep him there for long.  Stressed out, he showed up late to the party and proceeded to get in an ugly fight with Rebecca.  No worries, all was fine by the end of the episode, but we nearly saw a vehicular tragedy when they almost got into an accident in their new car on the way to a picnic.  Let’s hope for better things on the horizon for them.

Kitty is sick.  We don’t know what the health issue is yet, but it’s serious and my concern is that they’re going to kill her off, which they better not do.  This is an ensemble cast, after all, and it sure would hurt for bits of the ensemble to be taken away from us.  Next week, she starts talking about it to the family but may not be able to tell Robert just yet.

Elsewhere, Tommy is still gone and Sarah is getting ready to go to Paris.  Not sure if we’ll see her in Paris, though…?  She didn’t have much of a role in this episode other than her hilarious internet dating fiascos.  Scotty and Kevin are considering surrogacy, but the cost ($130,000+) may be too much for Scotty to bear.  Some of the best lines of the episode came from Nora and Saul’s mother, who is about as old-fashioned and opinionated as they come.  Of baby Evan: “One thing that can be said of them.  They sure make cute kids.”  Ahhh, old people.


Q&A on Season Premiere of Desperate Housewives

If you didn’t see the premiere of Desperate Housewives, you may have a few questions about what happened.

Q: Who did Mike marry?

A: For the second time, Mike and Susan tied the knot.

Q: In light of that, how did Katherine take the news?

A: Long story short, not well.  She’s going a bit crazy, in fact.  She held Susan’s dress hostage near a bubbling pot of spaghetti sauce, she turned up at their wedding and demanded a public apology after the ceremony, she’s been staring at Susan a lot from across the street, and she basically admitted to being completely unglued.  More to come, as she clearly hasn’t accepted things and will continue making things difficult for them.

Q: Lynette is pregnant with twins!  What more did we learn about the upcoming babies?

A: Poor Lynette.  She couldn’t be any less thrilled about babies 5 & 6.  So upset is she that she is turning other pregnant women against motherhood and sobbed to Tom that even though she fell in love with the other 4 as soon as she found out they were coming, she doesn’t love these just yet.  The big question is whether or not she’s going to go through with this.



Where Dexter, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters Left Off

On Dexter: Rita and Dexter got married, Dexter killed the assistant DA Miguel Prado after sharing his secrets with him, Rita’s pregnant, Deb is dating CI Anton, and Quinn was still sexy.


On Desperate Housewives: Carlos’ slutty troublemaking niece is moving in with him and Gaby, Lynette is pregnant (with twins), Mike and Susan reunited after Dave kidnapped Susan and MJ and Mike rescued them,  Mike got married to someone and we don’t know who, Bree is attracted to Karl but is being forced to stay with Orson so he doesn’t have her arrested for insurance fraud, and Edie is dead.  Look for a new family with a past to move in.

Endlich wieder Serien-Mittwoch auf ProSieben

On Brothers & Sisters: Kitty was in a car accident while riding with a man she has a crush on that she met on the playground, Kevin is working for Robert and trying to shield his sister from Robert’s political drive, Tommy is staying in Mexico after committing fraud at Ojai, Julia took Elizabeth and moved to Seattle when Tommy left, Rebecca and Justin are engaged, Justin got into med school, and Sarah is back at Ojai.
