Reality Roundup February 2013
So with the Oscars tonight, nothing is on but some cable shows I watch (Shameless, Walking Dead). I’m looking more and more towards covering more cable shows here as they don’t seem to be canceled as quickly. I did decide to pull together a little post covering some of the reality shows I’ve been watching, or flicking on, and my thoughts on them. Much as with current TV, I haven’t been feeling reality TV as of late!
RuPaul’s Drag Race
I really enjoy “Drag Race,” but my current work schedule doesn’t get me home until it’s half over! So I miss all the fun drama. I could watch it on rerun, but so much is on Monday nights that I usually don’t bother. So far I just haven’t gotten into it this season, mostly because of time.
Normally I really enjoy this show, but this season it seems like so many of the contestants are just down right bad! One guy won the first three challenges in a row, and I was beginning to think they should give him the trophy and call it quits. Really I think in the end the whole competition will come down to two of the guys (whose faces I can see, just not their names). Everyone else on the show kinda blows . . .
I adored the Runway All Stars 2 that just aired, and I am HATING this season so far. The team aspect just killed it for me, along with the 90 minute format. I love “Project Runway,” but this 90 minutes is overkill! As for the teams, I think too many crapy designers got through only because of their teams, and the expense of others who shouldn’t have gone home honestly. Now they are in teams of 2, I’m sure eventually they’ll be on their own.
I don’t even know why this show is still on the air to be honest. I tried to watch some of the auditions and vegas and hollywood rounds. It’s just bad. Kill it! Take it off! How many people who have won this have really gone on to be superstars? Their first, Kelly Clarkson, is still the biggest. Second to her would be the country winner. Otherwise it’s people who come in 2nd, 3rd, 4th that make it! Please Fox, just end this show! It hogs too much of the week and airtime as is.
Dancing With The Stars
DWTS will reveal their new cast this week. Who can they get that they haven’t got yet? Unless they managed to score some huge stars, I’m seeing a lot of olympians, football stars, a washed up rocker and reality television stars. With Maxsim out this season, will the ladies even watch?
ABC Reveals Dancing With The All-Stars Line-Up
I haven’t really been in love with DWTS for several seasons. I always try to watch, but more often than not I don’t feel drawn to anyone in the cast and lose interest. I had really high hopes that the “All-Stars” edition would change my mind. Normally it would have, most of these stars are amazing choices. However one never should have been asked back, and because of her I just don’t think I can watch the show. She never should have made it to the final three the first time, and something tells me she will again only because of the upcoming election.

Reality Roundup March ’12
Just some of my thoughts on some reality shows currently airing, or coming up soon!
Tonight is the Season 2 finale of “Face Off” on SyFy. I’m going to miss the show, but Season 3 is guaranteed. I don’t know who I want to win honestly. I think maybe Ian. I am sad that Sue got the boot last week. I like to cheer on the underdog . . . sometimes!
This week is also the first of a two part finale for “Project Runway All-Stars.” I am hoping Austin wins the whole she-band. I love Mondo, but sometimes his designes can be a bit out there. I’m sure we’ll be treated to a whole lot of Michael crying, and Kenley’s insane polka-dots!
“The Voice,” well honestly I haven’t been watching as of late. I’m sure I will get back into it. I just feel like during the blind rounds they passed over so many amazing singers, for ones who sometimes weren’t so amazing. After about an hour of the 2-hour shows I end up turning it off because my ears hurt and I keep wonder “What the hell were you thinking judge?”
I think I can safely say I’m done with “American Idol” for the season. Is anyone still watching? Every week I put it on, and turn it off quicker than “The Voice.” All those contestants and this bunch is who made it through? Some of these kids are just painful to listen to! Oh and can the show please just retire Whitney Houston songs? Randy tells them every year not to do them, and now they seem to want to do them even more!
“Dancing With The Stars” is coming up soon. I’m actually impressed with the line-up this year, they actually have more real stars than silly reality stars. Unfortunately for me, non of the real stars are anyone I care to tune in for. I’ll probably watch it when other shows are repeats . . . .
Dancing With The Stars: New Season Thoughts
So I did in fact sit through the entire two hours of “Dancing With The Stars” last night . . . mainly because with “90210″ moved to Tuesdays, there was nothing else on I wanted to watch. We’ll see how long it takes for networks to move things around and conflict with it!
The show was okay. I did get bored often, and found myself not caring about some of the people. Carson Kresley I thought was hilarious, but obviously needs to step up his technique. Chynna Phillips and Ricki Lake were why I watched, and by far my favorites. I was glad to see Chaz Bono could actually dance, but the weight issue will keep him from going too far I think.
Others I didn’t know who they were, or didn’t care (Rob Kardashian!). I do hope that sports guy (Ron Artest? Or whatever his new name is) goes home. Not only was he horrible, but he was creepily leering and hanging onto his partner and the female cohost. Sports people tend to last though, because of their large fan bases.
Dancing With The (Reality) Stars: The Season 13 Cast
Below is the release for the new cast of “Dancing With The (Reality) Stars.” I have grown tired of the show lately, only tuning in when I can (ie watching the first hour because something usually conflicts with the 2nd hour and the results show).
I am happy to see a few actual stars on the show. I’ll definately watch as long as Ricki Lake an Chynna Phillips last.

Dancing With The Stars Season 12 Cast
It’s no secret that I’ve found myself more and more disinterested in “Dancing With The Stars.” The past few seasons there have been more faux stars than real ones. Jennifer Grey was great last season, but at the same time the whole thing was tainted by she who shall not be named and stayed way too long!
The new season’s cast was announced tonight during “The Bachelor” and I feel fairly confident that unless there is NOTHING else on TV those night, I pretty much won’t be tuning in. I just don’t have an interest in any of these contestants, and frankly as usual only know who half of them even are.

Dancing With The Stars Season 11 Thoughts
Just some quick thoughts on the first week of “Dancing With The Stars.”
So far I am enjoying it. Because of Heroes and other shows that ended up on Monday nights, I was always torn. That and seeing the people I tuned in for sent home week one always turned me off the show. I feared that would happen this year too, but fortunately it didn’t.
For sure there are some clunkers. The Hoff was rightly sent home, he was horrible. I was surprised though as he is also popular. I thought he’d be there for awhile. I guess ABC made voting German proof
Michael Bolton and “The Situation” probably need to go next. Unfortunately “The Situation” I fear will be on the show for awhile just because “Jersey Shore” fans will rabidly vote for him.
Jennifer Grey of course seems to be the stand-out favorite right now, but that can always change! Her breakdown though was a tear jerker.
I was afraid Margaret Cho would be sent home after her first dance. She’s one of the main reasons I tuned in, so as usual I was expecting her to be axed. Hopefully she won’t pull the comedy schtick next week and do a serious dance. I don’t, however, expect her to win. But hey who knows. The girl that played Tracy Turnblad surprised everyone and made it to the finals!
The kid from the Disney Channel show I was afraid would be axed last night simply because I didn’t think he’d have the fan base to keep him. That has happened in the past with good dancers. No fan base to vote meant they went home when they deserved to stay over others.
Anyway, those are my thoughts!
Dancing With The Stars Season 11 Cast
I’ve become increasingly disinterested with “Dancing With The Stars” the past few seasons. Having other shows I watch up against it didn’t help, and neither does the fact that a lot of the time the people I really like get the boot early on. Still, the new season starts September 23rd, and I’m sure I’ll tune in off and on at least. Maybe I’ll get sucked in to some drama?
There are a few stars in this new season I’m interested in seeing, like Margaret Cho, Jennifer Grey and Flo Henderson. A lot of the others on this list . . . I don’t know . . . I really don’t think reality stars should be on a reality show about stars . . . there is something odd about that.
MICHAEL BOLTON – Michael Bolton has sold more than 53 million records, released 18 studio albums, won multiple Grammys® for Best Male Vocalist and countless other honors, all while selling out arenas worldwide. In 2002 the singer-songwriter earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. He has sung with Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, written songs with Bob Dylan, Ne-Yo and Lady Gaga, penned hits for a diverse range of artists, including Barbra Streisand and KISS, played guitar with B.B. King and had his music recorded on a track by hip-hop superstar Kanye West (featuring megastar Jay-Z). Earlier this year Bolton released his latest album, “One World One Love,” featuring his current single, “Murder My Heart,” which he co-wrote with Lady Gaga, and is currently on a worldwide concert tour. Of all that he has accomplished, perhaps nothing is more important to Bolton than the foundation he founded in1993, The Michael Bolton Charities, Inc. Based in his home state of Connecticut, the major focus of The MBC is the critical issue of violence against women. Since its inception, The MBC has dispersed over $6 million in grants to various organizations that support children and women at risk of poverty, abuse, neglect, homelessness and domestic violence.
BRANDY – Brandy is a platinum-selling R&B and pop singer, actress, songwriter and record/television producer. In 1994, at the age of 15, Brandy released her eponymous debut album, selling over 6 million copies. Following a major success with “The Boy Is Mine,” a duet with singer Monica, which spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, she won a Grammy® Award for Best R&B performance by a duo or group. The accompanying album “Never Say Never” in 1998 sold over 16 million copies worldwide. A series of hit CD’s followed, including “Full Moon,” “Afrodisiac” and “Human,” bringing the star’s sales to over 30 million records to date. While maintaining a recording career, Brandy also gained fame as an actress, starring in several film and TV projects, including the popular UPN sitcom, “Moesha” (1996-2001), the 1997 version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella, Double Platinum,” a miniseries co-starring Diana Ross, and the movie “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.” Brandy has also been spokesmodel for Cover Girl, Candies Shoes, DKNY, Sketchers Shoes and Ultima/Kaneka brand by Brandy.

She made her debut on the big screen last fall in the thriller “Sorority Row.” Other film credits include the action-adventure film “Into the Blue 2” and “Honey 2.” She has also tested her hand at comedy, appearing on an episode of the sitcom “Do Not Disturb” and in a hilarious skit for “MAD TV.” Last summer Patridge made headlines steaming up TV screens in a commercial for Carl’s Jr. This July she became the latest Bongo girl, shooting the fall advertising campaign with famed photographer Tony Duran.
MIKE “THE SITUATION” SORRENTINO – Mike Sorrentino has become one of Hollywood’s emerging talents. Born in Staten Island, New York and raised in Manalapan, New Jersey, Sorrentino is most known for starring on the hit show “The Jersey Shore,” now in its second season on MTV. He graduated from Manalapan High School and went on to college in NJ. After graduation in 2004, he tried his hand at personal training, fitness modeling and soon after was scouted for an upcoming reality show which would eventually become “The Jersey Shore.” The show caught fire, becoming one of the highest rated shows in MTV history, and propelled “The Situation” into pop culture phenomenon. As “The Jersey Shore” continues in its unrivaled success, Sorrentino also continues to gain in popularity nationally and internationally. He was nominated this year at the Teen Choice Awards for Choice TV: Male Reality Star.

KURT WARNER – Kurt Warner is the first quarterback ever to participate in “Dancing with the Stars.” In 1999 he emerged from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. In that same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. As the ringleader of the “Greatest Show on Turf,” he led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances – including another Super Bowl — and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also earned his second NFL MVP in 2001. Injuries led Warner to move from the Rams to the Giants, and finally the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. In 2007 he led the Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl and surpassed several Cardinals franchise records, including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating. Warner’s gridiron accomplishments pale in comparison to the dedication he shows to the community. In 2001 he and his wife, Brenda, established the First Things First Foundation, a non-profit public charity dedicated to impacting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone to believe that all things are possible when people seek to put first things first. Warner was born and raised in Iowa and played college football at the University of Northern Iowa. He lives in Arizona with his wife and seven children.

Dancing With The Stars Premier
Well last night “DWTS” got some of it’s biggest ratings ever. Did you tune in? Do you have a favorite yet? Is someone already clearly the winner?
I did watch and look forward to being able to watch this season without “Heroes” interfering. The last few seasons that’s been some big competition. Though I will admit, I ended up turning it off near the end to watch “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” That show is like crack, bitchy snarky crack!
As for my quick thoughts though, I enjoyed it. I at least know most of the contestants this time around. The last few seasons I felt they were really reaching. I am guessing Buzz will go home this week, but he’s such an American hero that the votes might save him. The same with Jake the Bachelor, I think girl will vote to keep him on cause they think he’s all that (even if they hate the woman he chose).
I really liked seeing Shannan, I’ve always loved her as an actress. Neicy Nash was fun as well, love her too. The Pussycat Doll I guess I have my normal issues with, but even more so here. Before they hit it as a music act they were a dance/burlesque act in Vegas. I think that’s a bit unfair!
