Late Addiction to Miami Social August 18, 2009

I caught up on basically the entire season today.  Boy, oh boy.  The tumultuous-at-best relationship between George and Lina is goddamn terrifying.  She breaks glasses, slashes his clothes, switches personalities on a whim, curses at him in her native Ukrainian tongue, says she’s in NYC when she’s really on a yacht in St. Bart’s, and either invents pregnancies altogether or lies about having an abortion.


The bottom line is that George is still madly in love with Sorah, but he screwed that up by cheating on her when they were married.  And Sorah is now madly in love with Gonzalo, and I can’t blame her, he is just darling.

Your guess is as good as mine.  We’re in that unfortunate lull where absolutely nothing is happening on TV.  It’s that in-between week: several shows ended last week (Tori & Dean, for example) and none of the Bravo stuff or Project Runway start until next week.  In the interim, you could easily catch up on what you may have missed in seasons’ past, but do you even care?  I do know that NYC Prep and Miami Social are on tonight, but I don’t watch ’em personally.  Since I don’t have shows to talk about, I will use this as my opportunity to sound off on other fascinating topics.


I think ABC needs to do a follow-up After the Final Rose with both of Ed’s past lovers and Jillian and him all in one place.  I’d like to see Ed deny all of these allegations in front of an audience, because I think he’s a goddamn liar.  I wish Jillian the best of luck in moving in with him and planning to build a life with him, because she’s wasting her time.  Anyone who’s read that US Weekly story from last week can see for themselves that it’s highly unlikely that two women, unbeknowst to one another, were carrying on relationships with him while he wooed Jillian on the side.  The article was so laden with details that I don’t think it’s fictional at all. 


Here’s some exciting tidbits:


— When Ed flew home for 10 days, he went to a wedding with his girlfriend Jessica.  They smooched on the dance floor, bought the gift together, and signed the card.  Interestingly, he signed the guest book “Hollywood Ed”. 


— When he returned to the show, he told both girlfriends that he was going to Texas for a business trip.  When he came back with suitcases bearing Aloha stickers, he was confronted.  When asked whether he was engaged, he responded, “What do you think?”  They slept together.  This was 9 days after he proposed to Jill in Hawaii.


— While on the show, he somehow had access to his phone and text-messaged both ladies.  He said things like ‘I love you’ and ‘I’m trying to get home, this is such a mindfuck’…’I’m not attracted to this chick’ and ‘I can’t wait to molest you.’ 


— He called this “his summer to get vagina.”
— Jillian believes the two women have made everything up and are hurt he chose her over them.  She thinks they’re pathetic, feels sorry for them, believes Ed 100% and knows all of this because she reads his emails.  Uhh, don’t you find it possible that he deleted his incriminating emails?  I would bet Hollywood Ed has a Blackberry where he can do those things on the sly…

Well, it’s Shark Week on Discovery so quite a few things there.  I have several shows sitting on my DVR right now, plus some others being added: Great White Shark Uncaged, Prowling for Sharks in the Mediterranean, Shark Battlefield, Shark Attack, Mysteries of the Shark Coast, and so on.  We watched the Survivorman episode last night where Les Stroud counted down the top 5 most shark-infested waters and my husband asked me to guess what #1 would be.  For whatever reason, I guessed Florida.  He guessed Australia.  I fell asleep before seeing the end but he informed me today that Australia was second and Florida first.  It turns out I’m a secret shark genius.

Also on tonight is Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood and it’s the much-touted (in the press at least) season finale.  So far we’ve had mom Candy accuse Tori of using her children for the sake of the show and sending in an RSVP that she would be at baby Stella’s first birthday party, which would also be her first introduction to the child.  Tori has really taken the high road and although she discusses issues with her mother on the show, she hasn’t written open letters to the press about their relationship, unlike her mother.  We already know Candy doesn’t show up, but you’ll get to see meager Tori’s heart get broken once more.  Despite all that nonsense, Tori and Dean appear to have a great, solid marriage and two freaking adorable children that I can’t get enough of.  Some might be in love with Stella, but right now my eyes are on Liam.  It’s been so fun to watch him grow up and come into a personality over the past few years and I hope we get the same opportunity with little Stella.

I’ve also heard that Miami Social is pretty delish, but I think I give Bravo enough of my viewership for the time being and in upcoming months it will only get worse with the premieres of Flipping Out, Top Chef Las Vegas, and Rachel Zoe Project.  I swore a while back that I wouldn’t invest myself in either NYC Prep or Miami Social and I’ve lived up to my word and not watched one single episode.  I’m proud because there isn’t much I say “no” to!

I’ve invested in the Blockbuster online rental service to catch my husband up on Dexter, which is truly a brilliant show and one of the few I think he’ll enjoy watching with me.  So far we only have It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Office.

That’s what’s on my radar tonight!


Putting the Premieres Into One Post July 9, 2009

How does that sound?  I can’t keep bouncing back and forth talking about all the different networks and the offerings they will soon have for us, so I’m putting all MY shows (and some that I know are favorites but that I personally don’t watch) down right now.
