Can You Really Find Love On A Reality Dating Show?

2/11/2010 5:00pm EST
The Bachelor
Over the years, reality TV programming has become the most sought after form of television in comparison to good old-fashioned scripted dramas and comedies.

What's not to love about the reality of reality TV? There are no actors, which inevitably means real people dealing with real situations - well, that was what it was supposed to be.

Reality dating shows are really popular right now. They focus on one individual dipping his or her hands and other body parts into a group of eligible contestants. Little by little, the lucky individual determines if the eligible suitors are just righ...

Reality TV Stars We Can't Get Enough Of & Those Who Need To Go Away

There is a reality show for everything these days, from dog grooming to etiquette training. While most of the reality personalities are grueling to watch as they pretend they are actual celebrities, there are some reality show stars that we can't take our eyes off.

Here are a few Reality TV stars that we can't get enough of:

Kim Kardashian

On "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim is actually enjoyable to watch. Unlike her mother and her two sisters, she seems more down to earth and a little less self-centered. Since her sisters Khloe and Kourtney are jetting off to ...

Celebrities Who Should Have Their Own VH1 Dating Shows

VH1 Dating Shows
VH1 used to air music videos and documentary series like "Behind the Music." But now like its sister company MTV, the channel is all reality, all the time. VH1 has become the celebrity dating channel featuring C-list and has been celebs. Shows like Flavor of Love and Rock of Love have been two of the popular celebrity dating shows on the network. These shows have been very successful and have rejuvenated the careers of Flavor Flav and Bret Michaels. R & B star Ray J has even had his own dating show on VH1 even though he's not a has been or C-list celebrity.

Here's some celebrities who...

Writer's Viewpoint: Disputing An Iconic Song List

1/30/2009 2:14pm EST
It takes a cataclysmic event to derail Overrated/Underrated from its usual Friday spot. Currently the Oscars have been serving as that disruptive force, but this week interruption comes from the most unlikely source: a sports columnist from the Kansas City Star.

This is because Joe Posnanski has suggested on his blog that we stop voting artists into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and shift our focus to Hall-Worthy songs. Songs he deems "Iconic". His criterion for including a song on the ballot is that it be "A song that represents a set of beliefs or a way of life. So, I see these s...

No Costume Necessary: Stars With Freaky Everyday Looks

Jocelyn Wildenstein
Marilyn Manson: Powdery white skin. Jet-black hair. No smile on his crimson lips or in his smoky, contact-lensed eyes. Proud of his freak show persona and wearing alienation like a badge of honor, musician and artist Marilyn Manson (nee Brian Warner) has an everyday look fit for a séance. Though he caused the stir when he burst onto the music scene in the 90's, his signature skinny black suits have now been co-opted by Emo kids and Pete Wentz has him beat when it comes to eyeliner. Even if his ghoulish look no longer shocks, no question the man is haunted: His 1997 autobiography was entitl...

Hoopz Wins 'I Love Money'

10/8/2008 8:00am EDT
I Love Money
Well, "I Love Money" fans, it has finally come down to the season finale and what a long journey it has been for everyone. Remember the first week when Midget Mac offended everyone and got kicked off the show very quickly? And no one can forget the perverted Mr. Boston, the love triangle with Destiney, Heat and the Entertainer, nor the backstabbing and general insanity going on in that house. There was a marriage proposal, a food fight, a mentally impaired dog, and plenty of hook ups; just the thing to keep a reality show healthy! It is over now, and while it could be seen as a documentary ...

People used to believe in fictional television. They didn't believe that it was real, simply that it was an honest fabrication of reality, a mild funhouse reflecting life as it is lived. They watched whether they could identify with it or not; they watched to imagine the lives they saw on the screen. Some still do. But others, a growing majority, watch reality television; they take comfort in the truthful depictions, no, profiles of the lives of others. These shows cannot be melodramatic, cannot be dismissed as over-the-top like Grey's Anatomy. They are "real."

Reality TV Overload

Project Runway
What happened to the days when movie stars were in fact stars in major motion pictures and when being an actor meant you actually had talent? What about when game show contestants were just game show contestants, not famous people?

Now it seems like you can't turn on the television without seeing a reality show, a preview for a reality show, or a reality show "star" in his or her new movie. When is it going to stop? It's reality TV overload! Some shows aren't that bad and are actually tolerable, but then there are shows like "Sunset Tan" on E! that make you want to rip your eyes out.


'I Love Money' Recap: Kissing, Making Out & Love Triangles

7/24/2008 10:39am EDT
I Love Money
What's more fun than watching desperate people eat horrible things? Watching them make out - or not make out - and cause dramatic love triangles on reality TV of course! "I Love Money" knows how to utilize its players, but the romantic entanglements should not be a surprise; all of these contestants were publicly turned down by Flavor Flav, New York, and Bret Michaels. It is shocking it took three episodes before the love games began!

In the third episode of "I Love Money" the teams were given new Captains: The Entertainer for the Gold team and Mr. Boston for the Green team. Really, Gr...

Being Underhanded & Weak Is An Asset On 'I Love Money'

I Love Money
Let's see if "I Love Money" has what it takes to stay in the reality TV world. Competition based on other popular reality TV shows that encourage humiliation and pain in the contestants? Check. Backstabbing schemers who would sell their soul (if they haven't already) to win? Double check. Scarily smart liars who manage to manipulate everyone else into doing their bidding? Pumkin and Toastee check. Looks like this show is heading in right the direction it needs to go!

In the second episode everyone was settling into their newly appointed teams and getting to know one another. Right from...

Midget Mac Is Eliminated On 'I Love Money'

7/9/2008 11:12am EDT
I Love Money
"I looooooove money!" crowed The Entertainer after jumping out of a tank filled with floating pesos, but there is very little doubt in the audience of "I Love Money" what it is the contestants love the most - fame, even the ridiculous spectacle version of it, and money.

The players of "I Love Money" are all former characters, er, contestants from VH1 shows such as "Flavor of Love 1 & 2," "I Love New York 1 & 2," and "Rock of Love 1 & 2." None of these 17 people found the love of their lives and were mostly rejected on live television, but they are back to compete for over $250,000 in ...

Top 10 Shocking Moments In Recent Television History

7/9/2008 8:30am EDT
Audiences love television because it allows the viewer to become a voyeur. Great television, though, allows the viewer to identify with the characters on screen and become wholly immersed in the fictional world that’s being created. Television can also shock viewers.

In an age in which the viewer can become a fly on the wall in a Mafioso household or counter terrorist agency, it’s no surprise that audiences can be stunned by what they see on television. However, there are moments on the small screen that stick with us. Twists, revelations, and blind sides leave our mouths agape a...

With the summer television season just around the corner, the influx of new reality shows about to inundate our small screens is just about inevitable. With gems like "Farmer Wants A Wife" or "The Greatest American Dog" set to hit primetime, we can be breathe a little sigh of relief that at least they can't possibly be as bad as some of reality shows past...or so we hope.

Ok, this "Flavor Of Love" reunion recap started out much longer, but after much consideration I revamped it to highlight the absolute best parts. Ready? Here it comes:

10. Did you notice his mom and niece in the audience? They were never there before but were for the proposal. YEEAHHH BOYYEEE!

9. Flav's incredible pink suit! Keeping it real!

'Flavor Of Love' Finale: Thing 2 Gets Her Gold Grill

5/20/2008 8:44am EDT
Flavor of Love
So because Flav ended up with three girls rather than two after the last elimination (since he brought Thing 2 back) he decided that this episode of "Flavor of Love" he was going to have two eliminations.

All the girls are together having breakfast with Flav, and he pulls out three plane tickets. One is for Paris (even though they are already there), one is for Monaco for a date, and the other is for L.A. for one of the girls to go home. He decides that Thing 2 gets the Paris ticket because he wants her around longer. He ends up sending Sinceer home, and hallelujah! It is about time! ...

Flavor Flav
It’s been an endless journey for your boy Flav and three seasons full of ups and downs. But finally, in the City of Lights, it’s time for Flavor Flav to put it all on the line.

On the series’ finale of “Flavor of Love 3” premiering on Monday, May 19 Flav finds himself caught between an undeniable chemistry with one girl and a love connection with the other. With his promise that he’ll “find love or die trying,” this final episode proves to be the most dramatical elimination in “Flavor of Love” history.

Leading up to the series’ grand finale, VH1 will marathon episodes from seas...

'Flavor of Love' Recap: Send Sinceer Home

4/29/2008 9:42am EDT
Flavor of Love
Tree was sent home in the last episode, but hold on to your pants "Flavor of Love" fans because the elimination from the most recent episode will shock many of you.

The girls' parents showed up, and it seemed as though all the families were getting along with Flav except for Seezins' parents. Seezins' mom immediately asked Flav what his intentions are. Flav's answer was that he doesn't want to get married or get serious until he gets to know his partner well enough. Seezins' mom said that she is worried about her daughter being with him because he's had so many children with so many w...

'Flavor Of Love': Trees Need Sunlight, But Tree Needs Limelight!

Flavor of Love
Thing 1 was sent home in the latest episode of Flavor of Love and Thing 2 was acting like she just died. The episode started out with her crying for her sister a funeral just took place.

Black was determined to have her first one-on-one date with Flav, so she was ready to step it up in the next challenge. The girls found out that they were going to a radio station (106FM) to be on the Big Boy show. While all the girls were nervous, the one who was the most is Sinceer, who ended up drinking way more than she should.

The idea behind this challenge was to interview the girls so Ame...

'Flavor Of Love': One Big Cryfest & Prototype Is Sent Home

4/15/2008 12:12pm EDT
Flavor of Love
On the latest episode of "Flavor of Love," we got a taste of what the girls have been doing in their past. After Seezins brought Flav waffles and fried chicken to his room for breakfast, she said to prove that she's not just here for the game she wasn't going to compete in the challenge. CAN SHE DO THAT?!?!

Each girls' ex boyfriend was invited to answer a few questions that would then be used in comparison to the girls' answers in the first ever "Flavor of Love Neverwed Show," hosted by Arsenio Hall (woo woo woo!). The first round involved Thing 1, Tree and Prototype. The first issue ...

'Flavor of Love': Wedding Vows & Eulogies

4/8/2008 8:46am EDT
Flavor of Love
Just when you start thinking you have a grasp on what is happening on "Flavor of Love" DON'T. In the latest episode, the challenge was for the girls to write "wedding vows" in teams, along with one objection for the bride on a different team. The winning team would go on to write eulogies for Flav's "funeral."

The teams consisted of Black, Prototype and Luscious D; Thing 1 & 2 and Sinceer; and Tree, Hotlanta and Seezins. Some of the teams were ridiculous, and to be honest, the fact that the winner of the wedding challenge was Thing 1, 2 and Sinceer is insane. For one thing, Thing...

'Flavor of Love' Episode 8: Thing 1 & 2 Are Split Up (Sort Of), Prancer Is Eliminated

4/1/2008 9:00am EDT
Flavor of Love
On this episode of Flavor of Love, we are given a chance to learn about the new girls. They are given nicknames: Black, Prototype, Luscious D, and Tree. Tree is, quite obviously, the tallest girl in the house. Some of the older girls think she may be a man. Jury's still out.

Flav began the episode by saying that if the girls know where they stand with him than they shouldn't be scared about the new girls. This was an interesting beginning because it ended up being extremely relevant at the end of the episode when he sent one of the girls home. This week's challenge was the "Flavor Flav...

'Flavor Of Love': Flav Wants A Calendar But Gets So Much More!

3/25/2008 11:53am EDT
Flavor Of Love
So, after giving Myammee the boot on the last episode of "Flavor Of Love," there is still a lot of cleaning that needs to be done in the house, and Shy takes it to heart by getting her mouth checked out by a dentist to take care of her abominable breath. While this is likely the most hilarious part of the episode, given that Shy finds out she needs to brush and floss twice a day (what a concept), it is not the end of the insanity!

Buckwild and Safari from season 2 come to help judge the creation of the calendar. Prancer and Seezins take it upon themselves to ensure that they are in as ...

The Image of Black Women in Entertainment

Tyler Perry
Where in the world are black women in today's entertainment? There is a significant dearth in quality images of African-American women in television and film. And no, Oprah's un-Godly success and stature doesn't diminish this truth.

It wasn't always like this. In 1968, Diahann Carroll starred in the ground breaking series "Julia." Heralded as being the first series to star a black woman in a non-stereotypical role, "Julia" produced 86 episodes and Carroll earned herself a golden globe.

In the 70s, Pam Grier played a character that went against the typical African American fema...

'Flavor Of Love' Episode 6: Who Is Really Here For Flav?

3/19/2008 10:50am EDT
Flavor of Love
In the latest "Flavor of Love" episode we get a better feel for which of these girls is really here for Flav and who isn't. The first development on the show was that Myammee went to Flav's room to be with him so that she could step up her game. She showed up in his bathroom with a bikini, and the two shared their first kiss. We then saw Bunz on the phone with someone talking about her electricity bill problem, stating that she owes $300 plus in bill money.

A later phone call involved Seezins picking up the phone to hear Rayna calling on the other line, telling her that there are thing...

'Flavor of Love' - Bunz' Bunz and Bee-Ex Becomes an Ex!

Flavor of Love
The beginning of the latest "Flavor of Love" episode started calm and peaceful, and oh what irony it was. Flav decided to have some one-on-one time with Bunz at the beginning. The two were on his bed cuddling and Flav said, "Flavor Flav loves to cuddle!"

This was about as peaceful as the episode (and entire season, in my opinion) got. Sinceer and the Twins had a conversation that they believe they are the only people in the house that are really there for Flav. The Twins should've been gone yesterday as far as I'm concerned. They serve no purpose in the house other than stirring up mor...

'Flavor Of Love': Not Every Bump On Someone's Face Is Herpes

3/4/2008 10:27am EST
Since there are still too many girls for Flav to get to know on "Flavor of Love," he had to do yet another competition. Flav was roasted on Comedy Central, so he thought it would be funny for the girls to do their own Flavorettes Roast. The host of this event was the lovely Sommore, who is an incredible actress/comedian.

Team 1 consisted of Shy, Thing 1 and 2 (and boy do I have something to say to Flav about them), Prancer, Myammee, and Sinceer. Team 2 consisted of Bunz, Grayvee, Bee Ex, Hotlanta, and Seezins. It may be safe to assume that Team 1 had an edge based on the fact that the...
