The Times Have Caught Up with ‘Temptation Island’

I’m gonna be honest: even though I have been a card-carrying member of Bachelor Nation since 2010, I just couldn’t get myself excited for this season. (Colton seems to be a nice enough guy, but he is also CRAZY BORING, and the show’s formula is getting stale; its primary utility at this point is as…

Can’t Help Loving ‘Love After Lockup’

You know how it goes: One minute, you’re just a normal 30-something with a slightly aggressive eyeshadow habit, cruising the “goofy” ad section of Craigslist. The next, you’re 5 months into a serious relationship with a man whose admitted drug of choice is meth, fighting off your family’s petty concerns, which largely start and end…

Welcome Back, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’

After the Ho-Ho-Horrible Holi-Slay Special, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is back in full force! For those unfamiliar, this reality TV competition is similar to America’s Next Top Model with runway challenges. Blend that with design and construction challenges like Project Runway and then add a dash of Big Brother-level drama. At the same time,…

Seven Seasons in, ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Still Shocks

It’s that time of year again.  The Malbec is a-flowin’, the Lala is a-groanin’, and Jax Taylor is swearing that he’s a changed man.  Obviously, that last thing is definitely a new one. Still, for a show that’s been airing as long as it has, Vanderpump Rules has managed to stay every bit as viciously fresh…

90 Day Fiance on TLC

Cozying up to TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé

With TLC bursting onto the Sling scene, the time to indulge in their greatest hits is now. If you’re struggling on where to get started, look no further than the fantastical mess that is 90 Day Fiancé.  The show follows a swath of American + non-American couples.  When we meet each couple, the pair have…

Sneaking in a Visit With “Welcome to Waverly”

From the notorious goodness of their typical Housewives drama to the steady unsteadiness of Below Deck‘s crazy, Bravo’s got the reality game down to an art. And while I will always be here for another city of grown women acting like toddlers (diapers and all), sometimes, I just feel like shaking things up. Luckily for me,…

‘Are You the One?’ (or Five, or Twenty)

Are You the One? may be many things, but above all, it’s a veritable PSA on communicable diseases.  In the season’s opening episodes, the cast seems to have lost, and then slowly regained, their voices to the same suspiciously horse throat.  The mysterious affliction was no doubt the work of whatever virus was being passed around…
