‘The Singles Project’ S1 Episode 3: Failing Chemistry 101
Man stealing, stalking and set ups. Oh, yes.

As I continue to watch this show, I’m beginning to vacillate between physical pain and boredom. The theme of this week’s episode was No Chemistry – some real and some imagined.

There were dates galore though: Lee and a woman named Saida, Brian and Nichole, Tabasum and Vedent, Kerry and Chris, Ericka and Francesco, Joey and a room full of guys at the Hell’s Kitchen haunt, Boxers.

Lee has yet to take my advice and date Ericka. I think these two know that once they start seeing each other, it will be the end of dating other people. For all they s...

Bachelor in Paradise
Yesterday was tough. Night sweats. Day sweats Full-body, uncontrollable itching. And all because we had to wait another day to find out if Graham actually accepted AshLee's rose (note: if you actually suffered symptoms because you had to wait a day for more "Bachelor in Paradise," please call an ambulance.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Recap: Cody/Macklemore is a Sweetheart, AshLee is a Dangerous Nutcase

Bachelor in Paradise
Is anyone drawing up a flowchart for "Bachelor in Paradise?" Because this is a show that needs ample flowcharting. It's difficult enough that our kooky tropical dating show is a hefty two hours long, but it's near impossible to keep track of the many love triangles, love quadrangles, and love parallelograms that have cropped up among our many Paradisers.

Example: Michelle likes Robert, but Robert likes Sarah- oh, and Graham is, like, totally into Michelle, even if Graham has been going steady with AshLee this WHOLE TIME, and then Cody shows up and puts the moves on Michelle but now Kalon ...

'RHONJ' Season 6 Episode 7: You Gotti Have Heart

'RHONJ' Season 6 Episode 7: You Gotti Have Heart
So the drama of the first responder party has been put to rest, and everyone is supposedly friendly again. But tranquility is the kiss of death on reality TV, meaning I couldn’t wait to to see what new commotion – real or manufactured -- awaited the Jersey gals.

With other franchises, to shake things up the housewives are often sent on a trip where cabin fever or too many cocktails get the ladies in each other’s faces. Something tells me that that ploy isn’t necessary with this group, as they don’t need a distant land or booze to get them screaming at one another. So, instead of taking th...
