Hey folks! Along with many of you, I’m addicted beyond belief to the new cultural phenomenon known as “Reality Television.” If you haven’t heard, it’s sweeping the nation. Here is your place to find the juiciest details from some of my personal favorites. If you don’t watch, this all may seem a little left-field to you, but I hope this inspires you to take a gander into this strange world—Enjoy!


“FLAVOR OF LOVE”

Let me start this off with a bang. THANK GOD Krazy is gone. She was so fake. I’m personally surprised she lasted as long as she did. I have been rooting for New York since she was brought back a few episodes ago—nothing against Deelishis—but come on. New York has been vying for Flav’s love since season one, it’s about time she got another shot. Hopefully, it’s not a repeat of last season, where she makes it to the final two and then gets ditched for the classier broad at the end. We’ll see!

Watch–Sundays at 10:30pm on Vh1


“LAGUNA BEACH”

Okay, seriously—what took so long for the whole Jessica and Cameron thing to blow up? I mean, nobody really expects relationships to last long in Laguna, but this was just ridiculous. You’d think Jess would have learned her lesson after Jason, but apparently not. Even though she found out that Cam had cheated on her with Kyndra, she was still ready to stay in it and make it work. What the hell was she thinking?!

Tessa finally found a man, Derek, who is not just some jackass Laguna guy. However, it seems like his friends are having far too much influence on the kind of person he is. Too bad he’s friends with the worst possible guys ever. Hopefully Tess can pull this one out— Derek seems like a hell of a guy.

It’s also about time Kyndra got what was coming to her. Tyler totally dumped her, and not politely either. It ruled. She was caught so off guard, it was almost hard to watch. Perhaps this time he’s through with her for good. Let’s hope so.

On the side, I’d just like to mention that I’m incredibly curious to see how Rocky and Alex’s relationship goes after she told him she loved him, and when he said it back it looked like he had swallowed some bad sushi.

Watch Wednesdays at 10:00pm on MTV


“TWO-A-DAYS”

I never thought I would so thoroughly enjoy feeling like I was back in high school. Watching the Hoover Bucs totally kick Daphne’s ass was so fulfilling. This show is so good. Not only does it meet all the needs a girl has (hot guys, tight uniforms, etc.), but it’s got the sports aspect that will appeal to men’s competitive nature! Let’s not go overboard here, it’s still filled with the drama we have grown to love. Alex sucks, and Max has proven to be one of the most entertaining people to watch, along with Repeat, who deserves MVP in my book.

Also, thank God they won State. I thought this season was going to close out on a sour note with all these relationships ending, and then a loss. However, the Bucs redeemed themselves and took their 4th state title in a row.


“PROJECT RUNWAY”

At first, I thought it was going to be really great to have four people in the top to show at Olympus Fashion Week. But now, I’m not sure. Let’s break it down real quick:

Laura - She could be really talented if her clothes weren’t made for my grandma.

Uli - I understand about every other word she says, and all of her clothes look exactly the same. Enough printed dresses! Show us something different, unique, ANYTHING!

Michael - His clothes are hip, I will give him that. He’s a little too high-fashion for me, but he’s great with people, much more than I can say about the other three designers.

Jeffrey - My personal favorite. I’m hoping he takes the whole thing, but from the looks of the last episode, he might not even make it to the show.

My prediction: The worst-case scenario. Jeffrey gets kicked off and Laura takes the cake. However, with Michael winning the hearts of the judges, you never can tell!

Watch Wednesdays at 10:00pm on Bravo!
