Bret Michaels Cracks Jokes & Wins For Charity On 'Celebrity Apprentice'

May 3rd, 2010 2:15pm EDT
Donald Trump
Last night's 'Celebrity Apprentice' was dedicated to Bret Michaels, who continues to recover from an April 22 brain hemorrhage. In a statement released Friday, Michaels' doctor said that the Poison front man was expected to make a full recovery thanks to his 'undeniable' will to live. This episode showed the rocker to be a determined leader who will fight for his vision and strongly advocate for plumbers' cracks. It was Bret Michaels at his most undeniable.

So about those plumber's cracks…

After not firing anyone last week, Trump warns that one (or more) of the remaining celebs will go ho...

Bret Michaels Shines On Last Nights Celebrity Apprentice
It was hard to watch “The Celebrity Apprentice” last night without thinking about Bret Michaels’ current health problems. After suffering a brain hemorrhage last Thursday, the rocker is still in ICU, while the doctors continue testing, according to his website, Monday morning. With this lingering in the back of viewers minds, it was nice to see an episode where everyone brought their A-game and collectively raised nearly $350,000 for charity.

I can’t say I was expecting a happy ending from an episode that began with Barron, the youngest Trump, golfing on a roof. It’s amazing how someone so...

Can You Really Find Love On A Reality Dating Show?

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...

Bobby Brown
By now, it is clear to see the recurring theme in the episodes of "Behind The Music." The last 3 episodes have shown that the artists' downfalls revolved around drug use and hitting rock bottom because of it. And by the looks of it, next week will hold the same cards when the fourth episode features Bret Michaels; and we know how much Bret likes to party as told by his VH1 reality show "Rock of Love With Bret Michaels."

Why Are You Even On Right Now? TV's Worst Personalities

June 19th, 2009 11:19am EDT
Ryan Seacrest
There are some TV personalities that make you want to change the channel. Here's a short list of the most annoying ones:

Daisy (From Daisy of Love):

Vh1 must be running out of ideas for shows to have given one of Rock of Love's most inarticulate, irritating, and unattractive contestants her own reality competition. The only thing slightly interesting about Daisy De LaHoya is the fact that her uncle is Oscar De LaHoya. We think that might have something to do with the fact that she has her own show, unimaginatively and nonsensically titled Daisy of Love. Or, it could be that Vh1 is try...

Diabetic Bret Michaels Skips Insulin For Better Sex

Bret Michaels diabetes insulin
"The only time it will ever affect you in bed is if you have extremely low blood sugar and you go into insulin shock, at which point you won't be standing up, let alone performing sex. However, I will sometimes hold off on the insulin, which will jack my blood sugar level up to the low 200 range. It's like how a prizefighter will want to go into the ring with his blood sugar levels high. It gives you the stamina of a bull. So, yes, sometimes I will endanger my own life to pleasure a woman." - Bret Michaels talks about living with diabetes in the July Issue of Elle Magazine

Is There Any Reality Left In Reality TV?

February 17th, 2009 9:02am EST
The Bachelor
Writers and producers from many shows including "Laguna Beach," "The Bachelor," and, the granddaddy of them all, "The Real World," have admitted that their shows are either partially scripted and/or edited to manufacture storylines. And even before they admitted it, most of us knew for a long time that the term "reality TV" was kind of an oxymoron.

But remember when the first season of "The Real World" premiered 17 years ago? Some of you who are fans of the show now may have still been in diapers back then, but hopefully you've had an opportunity to see its beginnings. If you have, yo...

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!

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?

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.

Rock star Bret Michaels tried twice to find love by filling a mansion with gorgeous women and having them compete for his heart. But after the final pass was handed out and the cameras stopped rolling, Bret's picks didn't work out. He and season two winner, Ambre Lake, really tried to make it work and although they still remain close friends, between his tour line-up and her work schedule there's no time for a relationship.

"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 ...

The Image of Black Women in Entertainment

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...

Trashy Reality Shows Feature Drunken Escapades, Showmances & More

Rock of Love
Reality TV is an obsession. It's not just typical of American culture, either. Many countries delight in humiliating common folks. That, of course, is the allure. It could be any of us. It could be your sister or brother on TV, hooking up with two people while being broadcast in night vision. Or it could be you.

Following are some of the trashiest and most salacious offerings you can currently find on TV. When is the writers' strike over? Oh, that's right. Guess I'll keep watching.
