Kim & Big Papa Split! October 14, 2009

Filed under: Bravo,News Feed,Reality — thedogwoodtree @ 9:36 am



Well, it sure is tough to be engaged to a man that’s married to someone else, lives with that person, and has six kids…isn’t it?  Kim sure didn’t seem to think so, and is still calling Papa “the love of her life.”  So what happened? 


Obviously, he kicked her ass to the curb.  Watching Kim spend all season racking up charges on her mysterious Black MasterCard (you can only get one if you spend $250k per year) and claiming Papa doesn’t pay for it — uhhh, who are we kidding here, really, Kim? — you have to assume she wouldn’t ditch that money train a second time around. 


Good luck finding another guy to pick up the slack of a Mercedes, an Escalade, a Bentley, pink diamond bracelets and loads of other jewelry, including an engagement ring the size of my knuckle.  Not to mention the shopping sprees for her chub offspring and the townhouse she lives in.  The woman has no income, people!  How else can she afford these things unless she pays with her vagina?


RZ Finale Curveball October 12, 2009

I was wrong that Paris was the finale, because it was this week.  We saw more of Taylor losing her shit and Brad in short shorts.  And we discovered a male model whose name might escape me, but the visual of his biceps will not.  Basically, Rachel’s health problems got bad enough that she’s decided to make some changes, and in the last 2 minutes we saw what those changes will be.  Taylor really is going to be heading the product development line, Brad’s going to be staying put, and Rachel’s going to alleviate stress by backing up and….letting Rodger be the new boss.  That’s right.  Next season we get to enjoy watching him butt heads with his wife’s employees, and RZ already warned them that Rodg won’t be nearly so lenient about their childish behavior.

That is lit-rilly BA-nanas.

Only Old Stuff Returning Tonight September 24, 2009

GREY’S ANATOMY.  I stopped watching last year when Izzie was having sex with a ghost even though producer Shonda Rimes claimed she didn’t have a brain tumor, she was lying and that pissed me off.  If you’re going to put a main character through such a shitty arc because she says negative things about the storylines you give her, at least cop to it or cut the girl loose.  You may have retained me as a viewer if you got rid of Izzie Stevens.  I think she’s a complete bitch in real life.  But if I’m wrong and this season’s good, feel free to let me know and I’ll reevaluate my take on things.




THE OFFICE.  Since they don’t show previews, I don’t know what’s set to happen this week.  What I do know is this: we’ll continue hearing about Pam and Jim’s baby and though Dwight and Angela broke up a while ago, they may not be done.  I can’t promise any of this for tonight, but I can promise Michael hijinks! 


REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA.  Actually, I think that would be a “new” thing and the reason is that Big Papa is on for the first time!  I doubt we’ll see his face, but we’ve never even seen his car so this is kind of a big night.


PROJECT RUNWAY.  I’m clinging on but I’m not thrilled about it.  I love fashion, but I think my problem is that everything that is coming down that runway right now seems like it’s been done in a past season.  I’m having the same problem with Top Chef.  Deja vu x2.


NEW STUFF TONIGHT! September 23, 2009

I’m so glad that the time is finally here that all the shows I’ve been blogging about for the past few months have arrived.  Tonight is no exception, as a couple of things are on that I’ve been anticipating.


COUGAR TOWN — I’m gonna give it a shot.  Not sure if it’s a winner yet, but if not, it’s only 23 minutes of my life that I can’t get back. 


EASTWICK — Same deal.  I love Lindsay Price from Lipstick Jungle — her wardrobe was the best thing that show had going for it, and I wanted nearly every single thing she wore.  That aside, Rebecca Romijn still has some Mommy weight on (I think she began filming about 4-6 weeks after her twins were born) and it seems like the shows as a whole could be entertaining.  This one’s an hour, though, so prepare yourself for that.  I will of course record and zoom through commercials. 


DANCING WITH THE STARS — No, I’m not watching it this season, but I know enough to realize that the results show is this evening.  I didn’t think it was possible to extend the thing any longer, but they actually spread it into three nights for the premiere: Guy’s Night, Ladies’ Night, and Results Night.  Are you rooting for someone? 


As always, TOP CHEF LAS VEGAS is also on, and luckily Real World Cancun has ended so I have a week of freedom from MTV (until both The Hills and the new RW/RR Challenge begin next week).


Don’t forget to set your DVRs!

Tonight is quite the night for 20something girls with Daddy’s credit card.  Both Gossip Girl and Rachel Zoe Project are on, and as always both will have us admiring the checkbook-unfriendly ensembles. 


I read that Rachel Zoe will be suffering from exhaustion and pass out on tonight’s episode.  Funny, I’ve heard that phrase before from the publicists of some of Rachel’s former clients like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie.


In the Upper East Side, the gang goes to NYU and I personally cannot wait until Blair discovers that Georgina is her new roommate or when Dan tells Blair she isn’t allowed to wear headbands anymore — a Waldorf wardrobe staple as most of you know.  I saw a quote the other day from none other than Victoria Beckham, who said she is “ridiculously addicted” to Gossip Girl.  I’m glad I’m not the only one!


Is Tonight a Good Night for TV? You Betcha! September 17, 2009

And I’m sure you’re wondering why.  As I’ve recently learned, I happen to maybe offend people right here on this blog.  Some would call me crass, some a downright biotch, but hopefully most find me to be a witty delight.  If not, I suspect you’re on the wrong blog and need to be moving on over to Watch with Kristin’s far more conservative use of vocabulary. 


On that vein, we’ve got some viewing pleasure coming atcha this evening that could offend almost anyone: it’s the return of It’s Almost Sunny in Philadelphia and tonight, the Gang Exploits the Mortgage Crisis.  Let me just tell you that if you do not watch this show, you are missing out on something special.  It may be zany to say the least, but FX is bringing us a show that I believe to be a true marker of our generation, much like some feel South Park is.  It’s not PC in the slightest, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.  In fact, they keep that sucker out of rotation and off the air until 11pm so either record it or plan to stay up late (or late for me at least). 


Additionally, we have always-amazing The Office on NBC and Real Housewives of Atlanta to boot and Kim is using the ol’ smoker’s singing voice for us.  As for The Office, I don’t actually know what to expect but what I do know is that we left last season with a prego Pam and Michael back in his rightful spot at Dunder Mifflin. 


Party?  Hearty.
