Which Team Will New RHONY Cindy Barshop Pick?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I was able to avoid getting sucked into the Real Housewives vortex for several years before falling victim. My first taste into the highly addictive franchise was with the Southern ladies of Atlanta. Just like crack, I became hooked and quickly queued up all the other series minus the OC hookers. After all was said and done, I had officially become a Housewives junkie. And truth be told, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love/hate all the ladies.

If I had to choose which of the shows was my favorite, that honor, hands down, would go to the ladies of New York City. These ladies are vicious, mean, catty but never resort to violence like Atlanta or New Jersey. They’re pretty high-brow for reality TV standards. With Bethenny Frankel leaving RHONY and Cindy Barshop added in as her replacement, one important question arose. Which team would Cindy side with?

If you thought Jersey Shore Mania was a 2010 thing, you thought wrong. The overly tanned bunch look like they’re here to stay, at least for 2011. The Season 3 premiere draw HUGE numbers for MTV, giving the the network the highest audience ever. The reality guilty pleasure drew 8.45 million viewers.

Not only is that a huge number for broadcast television, but that’s humongous for cable TV. It crushed everything in the coveted 18-49 demographic on broadcast television during the 10pm timeslot. Sorry “Private Practice“, “The Mentalist” and “The Office“. Maybe it’s time for their cast to do some GTL’ing. With exception to “The Big Bang Theory” and “Grey’s Anatomy” which the Shore tied in the 18-49 demo, it slaughtered everything in any time slot in primetime.

You would think watching two seasons of these drunken fist-pumping fools would be enough. Not so. In fact, the season premiere represents a 38% increase over the Season 2 finale in October. The love wasn’t limited to just Americans. Canadians were sucked in as well giving the show a 13% increase over the Season 2 premiere, proving Canucks aren’t immune to the powers of the guidos and guidettes.

The first awards show of new year has come and gone. While “Twilight” dominated the movie awards, “House” the television ones and Eminem, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry sharing the bounty on the music side, the biggest question is… who ruled the red carpet? Let’s face it, you won’t remember a winner of a PCA, but you’ll most certainly remember a fashion disaster or impeccably put together outfit.

The People’s Choice Awards aren’t really the crème de la crème of awards shows, but merely serve as a platform to plug upcoming projects. Having said that, that Waterford Crystal award is beautiful and me likey and me want one.

Since the show is just a fancy warm-up for more important upcoming award shows, you won’t see a lot of fashion risks. They’re saving all the big guns for the Golden Globes, Oscar and Grammys. Instead, expect to see a lot of safe gowns and dozens of cocktail dresses on the PCA’s sapphire blue carpet. Check out the five nominees I’ve picked for best dressed and worst dressed at this year’s awards below. Don’t forget to cast your votes.

Last night, Hollywood said thank you to the fans who voted a record breaking 175 million times for all of their favorites. That’s right, the People’s Choice Awards kicked off award show season with a bang on CBS. Hosted by Queen Latifah she started the show off with a random, irrelevant song and dance number which really confused me. It wasn’t an original song, nor a parody. Just Queen Latifah doing a terrible cover of the year’s hit song, Dynamite by Taio Cruz. The dancers on stage were good but her opening really served no purpose.

Besides our host, the stars really turned it out for a night on the town. The gowns from the ladies were extraordinary and the men looked dapper in their suits and ties. New dads Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka sat in the front row along with the Kardashians, Hellcats co-stars Aly Michalka & Ashley Tisdale and straight off the plane to the red carpet were the famous trio from the Twilight series.

Voting had closed before the new year except for two categories: Favorite New TV Drama and Favorite New TV Comedy. We were also treated to a few performances in the evening. Selena Gomez & The Scene who were voted best breakout artist this year performed their hit A Year Without Rain and hip hop/rock/country superstar Kid Rock also knocked out a stellar performance. But most importantly… WHO WON?

Kathy Griffin A D-Lister No More

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After six seasons of trying to climb her way to the top, Kathy Griffin has decided to walk away from her highly-successful Bravo TV show. In a press release today, issued by Bravo, the network announced four upcoming Kathy Griffin comedy specials for 2011. What it failed to mention was that the spunky redhead was leaving her reality show. Griffin, instead, revealed to People Magazine her decision and future plans.

“It was a really tough decision, because I think of the ‘D-List’ as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons, and I also think it was really time to stop doing it,” Griffin tells People. “Reality is great, but I really didn’t set out to be a reality star. So now it’s time to spread my wings and show that I’m a little different than Kate Gosselin.”

“I’m not saying better, but maybe separate myself from the pack a little bit.”

The much anticipated return of ex American Idol judge, Paula Abdul took over our TV screens last night in a lackluster two hour premiere. There were pirouettes, kicks and flips but nothing more than you’d expect from series professionals America’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance. As I dancer, I can assure you that with all these dance shows out there, the market becomes over saturated and by time you get to the third or fourth show in the same genre, you run out of all the good people to use.

This proved true with the Los Angeles and New York auditions. As the team took to both cities in their hi-tech dance dome, we found that a lot of the talent just wasn’t there. Thank god for the come at any age rule and philosophy. Some of the best dance groups and soloists were young kids or older adults. Three former Solid Gold dancers even took their turn on the stage. After initially receiving 1 out of 3 gold stars, judge Travis Payne changed his vote to allow them to go through to the next round.

Lady Gaga’s Choreographer Gets E! Reality Show

In: Patrick, TV Shows

The lady behind Lady Gaga’s choreography, Laurie Ann Gibson, has just landed a Ryan Seacrest produced reality/documentary show on my new favorite network, E!. You may also recognize her as one of the judges on Skating With The Stars (but probably not…because no one watched that show…except Tyrell…and as a result, yours truly). The show is called “The Dance Scene“.

The series, which debuts on April 10th, will consist of eight half-hour episodes that follow Gibson as she trains dancers & assistant choreographers to work with big stars. Lisa Berger, executive vice president of E! programming talks about the show:

“The competitive world of the professional dancer is grueling creative work. Watching Laurieann mentor these young artists, who will do anything to make it in the business, gives us a glimpse into a world where the pursuit of success and excellence outweighs all else.”

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, special guest Josh Groban took the chance to remind America that he is still around. He wasn’t promoting a new album of original music however, but a collection of quips from one of Twitter’s most adored… Kanye West. Yes, Josh Groban took some of Kanye’s best 140 character ramblings and turned them into little jingles for our hearing pleasure and I’ve got to say, the songs are just as hilarious as the tweets themselves.

The faux-commercial is pretty convincing. Its really too bad that this little LP isn’t available for sale. Not like it would have any practical use on anyone’s iPod’s or playlists, but just for comical relief. Some of the golden tweets include: “Do you know where to find marble conference tables? I’m looking to have a conference… not until I get the table though.” and “Fur pillows are hard to actually sleep on.” Classic. And they only get more ridiculous from here.

Check out Josh’s “commercial” after the jump.
