THE SHOWS The Real O'Neals
I'm enjoying The Real O'Neals. The parents are getting a friendly divorce, one kids gay, one's a thief and one's got an eating disorder. They all go to church and the kids go to Catholic school and it's pretty funny. Martha Plimpton's the Bev Goldberg Mom type and you'll recognize the Dad from a bunch of stuff but won't know where specifically. It's pretty good. I haven't Season Passed this one yet, but I think I might. 

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

I love how all of these women can just pick up and go anywhere at any time. I guess if you don't have to worry about airline tickets, babysitters, money, or your boss freaking out on you, it's relatively simple. "Heyyyyy I'm getting an award in NY lets go." "Heyyyyyy Mauricio just got back from Dubai and loved it, wanna go?"  "Surrrre lets go." I can't believe these women are going to fly 16 hours to Dubai just for a change in fighting scenery. Standard operating procedure with these women. Go anywhere, order hors dourves start bickering. This week we got a little bit, a tiny bit, of David Foster not digging Yolanda's Lyme's disease crap. Sure he went with her to NYC for the big award ceremony but he did also get to fly private, play "Twinkle Twinkle" and hang out in the Jewel Suite with the sickest view of NYC ever, so why not?  Dying to know what was the final straw for him. Must have happened pretty fast, when did filming end? Pretty nice of Tom and Erika to fly everyone on their private plane. Of course Tom just dropped everyone off and left for Charleston. I'm assuming he came back to pick everyone back up, too. How else would they all get home? Kathryn and her new hearing aids went to NYC for the big event along with Anwar and Daisy, Yolanda's "health advocate." Kathryn and Donnie's hearing aid shopping was boring compared to Camille's insane Women's Cancer fundraiser. I'd forgotten how incredible her home is. Did anyone actually purchase anything? Can anyone tell me if Lisa Rinna actually IS Bipolar? She's definitely a sh*t stirrer but what's up with all the Bipolar stuff? Jiggy must be PISSED OFF these days. Did you catch that Harrison, the new dog had on a crazy outfit? I actually think that was one of Jiggy's outfits. There's going to be some doggy drama coming soon. Mark my words! Did you catch Kathryn calling Vanderpump "Pumpy?" Ridiculous nickname, no way will that ever catch on. Anyone ever heard of the Yulin Dog Torturing? Maybe only in LA is it a huge thing? Did you see how many people turned up to march to the wrong place and protest? Now that was hilarious. Note to Yolanda…maybe in addition to your "Health Advocate" you should add a bra shopper to your staff. The boobs were looking terrible without the implants but I think the right bra would be a tremendous help. 
The Grinder
Love me a flashback and some back story. Sooooo Mitch was engaged to Pam from The Office who was super annoying and called him "Poops." Chris Klein guest appearance. Anyone recognize the guy? He looked like he's been spending a LOT of time in the gym "in between jobs." Good thing they don't test for PED's in the acting world. Chris would fail big time. Dean's come a long way since his pre-product "Fran of the House" days but he's apparently always been a bit out there. Ironicly it was Stewart who reminded Dean not to give up his dream of becoming an actor which motivated him to GO BIG his Grinder audition. The show's back on track if you ask me. 


I checked out the new NBC sitcom Crowded last night. I actually watched both episodes and here's what I've learned. Patrick Warburton has now played the same character on every show I've ever seen him in. Seinfeld's Puddy, Rules of Engagement's Jeff, and now Crowded's, Mike. They're all the same squinty guy who has lived one life on 3 different shows. Puddy was the single guy, Jeff was the married with friends and no kids guy, and this guy Mike's is the guy who's married, has grown kids and annoying parents. The show's cute, nothing special. Mike's married to Elsbeth from The Good Wife has 2 grown single daughters who move back home. One is a lesbian, one isn't and his parents come over way too much and butt in to everything. Get the picture? 

-No shocker that Little Big Shots was renewed. I watched a few minutes of it last week and it was totally bizarre. A little Asian girl who didn't speak any English put a bunch of animals to sleep on pillows with either her own secret powers or drugs shed hidden in a'll the pillows. Not for me, but America loves this stuff. 

-Who's stuck with Better Call Saul ? Did it get any better? I thought it was terrible. Can't believe it's already been renewed for a 3rd Season. 
-Mariah Carey Reality Series? 8 hours of Mariah's "world" on E! 
Behind the scenes of her tour and all of her wedding plans? YES PLEASE!  All I have to say is WHEN?
-Annnd another winner, this one from POPTV which I now have! Jodie Sweetin, Christine Laken and Beverly Mitchell all in a reality show called Hollywood Darlings.  Yep…I'm in to that one too! 
-Sooooo Christina Aguilera's going to develop a musical competition show on Spike 
called "Tracks." The show is a bit different than her current musical competition show. This one will have a team of two trying to name a song title  by listening only to the individual tracks. So just the guitar or just the bass or just the vocal. Of course there will be suprise celeb musical guests performing the tracks. Do we really need another musical competition show with celebrity musical guests? Idol's on its way out, I really don't feel there will be a gap that needs filling but okay Xtina do what you want. 
Wednesday's Trivia Question: Robert Stack played him in the 1960's Untouchables TV Series and Kevin Costner played him in the 1987 Untouchables movie. Who is he?
