Bianca Lawson: Cult TV Favorite From 'Buffy' To 'Teen Wolf'

September 11th, 2013 12:27pm EDT
Bianca Lawson
It's a cool thing for any actor to be part of something that becomes a cult hit. Bianca Lawson has had the good fortune of landing on several popular TV shows, from her breakout role on Buffy The Vampire Slayer to her recurring part on Teen Wolf. Recently, BFTV sat down with Bianca to chat about what that feels like.

She first came to our attention in 1997 as Kendra Young, the doomed Slayer on Buffy. Since then, she's had ongoing roles as Emily Bennett on The Vampire Diaries and Maya St. Germain on Pretty Little Liars, and we're currently waiting to find out what's up with her Marin Morrel...

SallyAnn Salsano: A Conversation With One Of Reality TV's Biggest Producers

September 10th, 2013 2:20pm EDT
SallyAnn Salsano
Women who want to be in Hollywood, take note: you should be looking toward SallyAnn Salsano. As the founder and President of 495 Productions, she's the producer behind a number of shows you've definitely heard of, including MTV's Jersey Shore and its spinoff Snooki & JWOWW, Spike's Tattoo Nightmares, FOX's new talker The Real, and SyFy's upcoming superfan series Fangasm. As you can imagine, it takes a different kind of person to be able to oversee multiple shows over different networks simultaneously!

Yet somehow, SallyAnn took time out of her very busy schedule recently to chat with BFTV ...

Parents Television Council Slams MTV Over 'Unacceptable' VMA Performances

August 26th, 2013 5:17pm EDT
Miley Cyrus
Honchos at Parents Television Council have slammed MTV for airing "unacceptable" performances from Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga at the 2013 Video Music Awards.

On Sunday night, former child star Cyrus dazed viewers by stripping down to her rubber underwear to frolic onstage with Robin Thicke, grinding her bum into his crotch at one point, while Gaga bared her butt in a tiny thong during her performance of new song Applause, which opened the ceremony at the Barclays Center.

And the two routines have outraged conservative PTC bosses, who state, "MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexu...

'The Challenge Rivals 2' Episode 7 'Crossing Jordan'

August 22nd, 2013 9:00am EDT
The Challenge Rivals 2
Can somebody tell me why Frank and Johnny have so much power this season? Johnny used to have his gang to back up his bravado (two have allegedly been banned from the challenges for rape allegations) but now he’s essentially a lone ranger. Frank is a hot head with no apparent friendships. So, why do they have the power to get the girls to send in the team they want?

It’s baffling to me. We’re clearly missing some essential piece of the puzzle. The piece that tells us why anybody cares who Johnny wants in The Jungle and why people indulge in Frank’s hissy fits. Johnny is part of an old orde...

'Teen Wolf' S3-E11 Recap: 'Family Matters'

August 14th, 2013 8:37am EDT
Teen Wolf
“Alpha Pact” picked up right where last week’s breathtaking episode left off, with Scott and his mother gone and everyone else reconvening in the hospital parking lot. After literally slapping an unconscious Derek awake, Stiles sent him off to find Cora and run, then opted to remain at the hospital to delay the cops; the Argents found Isaac alone (Peter ran off after spotting the hunting duo), and Derek filled the trio in on Scott and his mother’s whereabouts. With everyone up to speed, the real fun began: a new character came to town, allegiances shifted, budding relationships developed, a...

'Teen Wolf' S3-E10 Recap: Under The Mistletoe

August 6th, 2013 2:52pm EDT
Teen Wolf
With a vicious storm, a dying wolf, and one flighty Darach, “The Overlooked” managed to bring almost all of Teen Wolf‘s current heroes, anti-heroes, and villains under one roof for a nonstop thrill ride of corny one-liners (cough, “Let’s rumble,” cough), near deaths, kidnappings, and the occasional heart-to-unconscious-heart. Despite the high intensity level (thanks to the impending mid-season finale, which is only two episodes away), “The Overlooked” still took the time to fill in a few plot blanks and illuminate the cracks forming within the Alpha pack’s ranks as everyone converged on Bea...

'The Challenge : Rivals II' Episode 4 “Mortuusequusphobia”

August 1st, 2013 4:45am EDT
the Challenge : Rivals II
One of the most important things to remember when watching The Challenge is that the cast members don’t act or think the way that normal people do. The world of The Real World and The Challenge are completely different from the regular youth culture. Not only are they used to the attention of fame, they exist on a plane where only sex and alcohol matter.

That’s basically my way of trying to explain the strange behavior of the women in tonight’s episode. I think many of the relationships, fights, and nastiness have a lot to do with screen time.

 Take Diem for example. She’s the perfect exa...

'The Hills' Is Back With An Alternate Ending

June 27th, 2013 10:35am EDT
The Hills
Fans of the popular MTV show "The Hills" were left shocked at the series finale a few years ago. The last episode ended as a stunt pulled by the cast and crew, revealing that the reality show may have been scripted the entire run.

Fans remember Kristin Cavallari (replacement to Lauren Conrad, who made the show popular) ending the show by driving away to a new beginning, from her on/off again boyfriend Brody Jenner. This seemed like a calming and good end to a series full of drama and relationship ups and downs. To the disappointment of the viewers, a huge turn-around was revealed in the la...

Arshad Aslam
How far would you go to be famous? That's the question asked (and made fun of) on MTV's comedy series Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous, which chronicles the title character's attempt to become a celebrity by any means possible. Along for the ride is Hasaad, who's played by the charming and hilarious Arshad Aslam. BFTV checked in with Arshad to ask him about the show, as well as an interesting quirk on his resume.

"The show is very, very, very funny comedy," Arshad told us. "He [Zach, played by Bo Burnham] wants to become famous, and he's doing it any way he can. He hires this reality show cre...
