Chef Ramsey’s Naaasty Pasta {Hell’s Kitchen}

April 23, 2008

Only a Reality TV show can cut to commercial and leave me on the edge of my seat wondering what a pile of pasta weighs. The only hellish thing I can see is the lack of sanitary conditions in Hell’s Kitchen. I was so grossed out by the pasta-draping scenario that I’m tempted not to order another pasta dish. Later, more accidents happened in a kitchen run by sleep-deprived chefs who can’t tell the difference between raw and cooked chicken. Answer according to Chef Ramsey: Raw chicken is “Pink and Bloody!” Yum.

Alex’s wild child gets a pass {The Real Housewives of NYC Reunion}

April 23, 2008

I wish the NYC housewives would have dished about feisty Francois attacking Bethany’s boyfriend’s hamburger with a toy kangaroo at the finale dinner. Granted, the ladies probably agreed beforehand that discussing Alex and Simon’s parenting skills (or lack thereof) was in poor taste. I guess Alex and Simon didn’t get the memo that it’s not cool to talk about money and the trappings of NYC ‘s Blue Book society; if you don’t display good taste and manners, you will be labeled as “gauche” or as Bethany put it, “All Show and No Go.” I’ve got to hand it to Alex, she is unflappable, and you must agree that Simon has been a perfect gentleman all along! But please spare me another sighting of Alex’s butt-crack, thank you.

Until Next Season,

Dr. Phil Now is Dr. Phil Not

April 23, 2008

Children of the Compound: The Lost BoysI don’t like when the Dr. Phil show turns into Dr. Phil Now. It’s hard to stomach Dr. P as a credible, muckraking journalist. He likes to posture himself as an investigative reporter, but come on, Dr. P’s got a crack support staff of field producers and a private jet! When I can get past the sensationalism, I can appreciate the adversity that the lost boys have overcome. Time will tell if Dr. Phil will continue address this issue when a future story becomes more popular in the mainstream and tabloid press.
