Womack Woes

7 Feb

Okay, my head exploded last week when the Bachelor got all Elvis-y! Everyone knows I love Elvis and have certain theories about my own past life as the King, so despite my growing hatred for this season of the most dramatic show on television, I was enchanted.

Brad took the Ashleys to Viva Elvis (lucky bitches!)—but wait, they were there to be IN the show, not the audience. Oh ABC…never saw that coming. Anyway, dumb people talked about dumb things, he picked the Ashley with the larger forehead and then they were suspended over the crowd as “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” played. But it looked like she was wearing air mail, indicating that “Return to Sender” would have been the more appropriate song. But then Brad was sort of done up military style (post Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell—did you see that eyeliner!) so maybe the mail dress was to indicate distance. But I digress.

The highlight of the season: cutting to the rejected Ashley crying in the cab (what happened to the limo? Did that funeral director girl blow the budget for the episode buying that ugly bag at Fendi?) while, “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” played in the background. Hilarious.

I don’t have much love for this season, the girls are lame and Womack is vapid on his best days. But I will give ABC kudos for the Vegas episode. Prediction for tonight: we finally figure out who Jackie is.

I need to take a moment to express my total excitement for The Chicago Code, which starts tonight on Fox. Not only was part of it filmed on my old block (we got police notices telling us not to be alarmed about random gunfire which was pretty cool), it stars my girlfriend Jennifer Beals.

Wine-less Weeknight Going to be Tough….

3 Jan

because there is sure to be a shitshow on ABC tonight that would be far more tolerable with a bottle of wine nearby.

Tonight friends, we welcome back Brad Womack as the Bachelor. I am strongly against this so far. There are so many other abs I haven’t seen yet, bullshit lines trapped in other men’s mouths.

I assume I will have more to say if I live through the season opener.

 

She carried a watermelon, America was happy!

23 Nov

I am overwhelmed with reality. Not only is there DWTS to comment on, there’s The Fashion Show (but I keep falling asleep so…I guess that’s my comment) and Millionaire Matchmaker in NYC (awesome), The Biggest Loser (damn you and your hotness Jillian Michaels!!) and the fact that The Bachelor seems to be giving the finger—in the form of the return of assface Brad Womack—to its viewers. Seriously?

But today, Jennifer Grey is where it’s at!! I LOVED the freestyle performance and think that “Do You Love Me?” was perfect. First, so smart of them to choose a Dirty Dancing song. America is clearly not voting for the best dancer (see Bristol and her invisible ankle weights), but America loves nostalgia. That Derek. So smart.

Also, for super Dirty Dancing fans like myself, this was a nice way to show that Jennifer has gone from the girl with the watermelon to the super star dancing pro! In the movie, this number was performed by Patrick Swayze and the undeniably awesome Cynthia Rhodes—the Kellerman‘s pros. Full transformation from tentative Baby to kickass Jennifer. Loves it!

And now, let’s relive the original number as we all cross our fingers that tonight’s finale goes as it should. I am still waiting for the “I’ve Had (the time of my life)” reference…
