Thongate’s a new segment on “The Soup”

Mankini and McHale on The Soup

Inspired by a viewer’s email last week, The Soups Joel McHale introduced a new and ever more bizarre segment called “Thongate“, a clip from All My Children where actor, Cameron Mathison, turns around and reveals the top a black thong before making a dramatic exit from a room.

Just when I think no one watches this stuff but me, this week The Soup revealed that the mainstream maidens of The View sanctioned a few seconds of their precious airtime to Thongate.  However, The View one-upped The Soup with a “surprised” entrance by Mathison who walked onstage, and stopping next to Barbara Walters, turned around, pointed to his backside exclaiming, “This is how it was–here we go: T-shirt! T-shirt!  It was a T-shirt caught in the pants! T-shirt!”

McHale and his co-stars, Mankini and the Spaghetti Eating Cat, didn’t buy it. “You are a lying freak, Mathison!” said Mankini.   Accordingly, McHale said a viewer survey showed that 94% agreed.

Sloppy editing and talent improvisation continue to provide material for The Soup.  Another Soup segment, Is Al Roker Talking About Semen? featured  The Today Show‘s Al Roker exclaiming, “Live on Five: Hold the Mayo!” after Ann “Good morning- Good morning” Curry was cold and had just asked Roker and Lauer to hug her, thus making an “Ann Sandwhich.”

Producers need to encourage their talent to stick to the script, less they become future fodder for E!‘s  and VH1‘s popular clip shows.

Rock of Love Charm School vs. Playboy Mansion

December 1, 2008

It’s sometimes not easy to explain the differences between one Reality TV show and another, even when the differences are obvious.  Side by side, here’s a look at two shows that couldn’t be more different, yet are strangely similar:

Rock of Love Charm School vs. Playboy Mansion’s Girls Next Door

Charm School Cast Dressed in Uniform

Charm School Cast Dressed in Uniform

1) Bitches in Heat vs. Bunnies in Love

2) Fuchsia Highlights vs. Pampered Peroxide

3) Sharon Osbourne, Headmistress  vs. Hugh Hefner, Headmaster

4) Charm School Pins vs. Playboy Bunny Diamond Necklaces

5) One Girl Eliminated Each Week vs. One (or more) Girls Move in Each Week

6) Censored language vs. Pixilated Body Parts

7) Competition for $100,000 Prize vs. Share Million Dollar Enterprise

The Girls next Door

The Girls Next Door Share the Love at the Playboy Mansion

8) Bret Michael’s Former Girlfriends vs. Hugh Hefner’s Past, Present,and Future Girlfriends

9) Learn New 10 Commandments vs. Live By The Golden Rule

10) Former Strippers vs. Former Hooters Girls

Although The Girls Next Door have moved on, and “random-ass hoe’s” have moved in, according to Kendra Wilkinson in an interview with Chelsea Handler, viewers will be able to reunite with their favorite Charm School girls on “Rock of Love Bus” premiering January 4th on VH1.

Pam Anderson lets loose on her own reality tv show

August 13, 2008

Pam Anderson might not be a young beauty, but who cares? Her new reality show, Pam:Girl on the Loose has a little bit of everything. Anderson has managed to cover all of the reality tv basics in the first two episodes. She introduces her staff (cook, assistant, etc.), cooks with her mom, jets off to Vegas with ex-husband Tommy Lee for Hugh Hefner‘s birthday celebration, visits the Playboy mansion, poses for a “fashion shoot” in the nude, and sells off all her worldly possessions at a yard sale to raise money for PETA. These snippets of her life are narrated by Pam from her bathtub and if you you don’t understand what she is saying, she draws little pictures and doodles on the screen–kind of like Blues Clues. I don’t think I can take an entire season of Girl on the Loose, but the first two episodes had a few poignant and humorous moments. Pam goes to Camp Pendleton to help MC a USO show. Riding in a golf cart with Kathy Griffin to the stage Pam asks: Is ZZ Top here?

Kathy:Yes.

Pam: Are any of my ex husbands here?

Kathy: Let me think….no.

Although Pam says she is against war, she reveals that one of her sons loves the Military Channel and appreciates everything the troops are doing. She said that she took him to an Army-Navy Surplus Store and they brought rations and her son cooked dinner from these rations. Obviously she supports his creativity.

Pam sense of humor about herself is refreshing, but if she really wanted to let loose, she would walk around the house without make-up.

What makes Heidi and Spencer newsworthy? {Chelsea Lately}

June 10, 2008

Chelsea Handler featured a story about Heidi and Spencer on her round-table last night. Heidi and Spencer, who are a couple from an almost-reality TV show The Hills, and are also a couple in “real life” as well should feel honored that they are a topic of discussion on Chelsea Lately. Why are they under the impression they are similar to Katie and Tom or Posh and Beck? They aren’t actors or singers (although Heidi has tried), or sports legends. They are feeding the media with these lame little anecdotes about themselves and we are supposed to be interested. last night I learned that they bought guns. Now if they were a high powered paparazzi-chased couple, this could be interesting to some people who have a lot of time on their hands, or perhaps if they were kind of nutty (like Brittany) this might be scary. But as Chelsea said, these two are “officially idiots.” I hope Chelsea stops giving them commentary because I never want to become bored with Chelsea’s material. So go away, “Spidey,” I want forget about you.

Hello David, Goodbye Judges (finally) {American Idol 7}

May 22, 2008

DAVID COOK WINS! American Idol 7 Finale – Time Of My Life

DC beat Archie! And while singing his “Victory Lap” performance, viewers had to listen to the judges talk over This is the Time of My Life. I’m tired of the judges, tired of Seacrest, and tired of Coca Cola, and ready to hear DC in another venue!

The best of both Davids {American Idol}

May 19, 2008

For the next two nights we’ll see the best of both Davids: David Archuleta is young, cute, and has those dreamy eyes. In my day, he’d be on the cover of Tiger Beat magazine with the caption, “Win a date with David” and “Inside, new David Archuleta trading cards–collect all 25!” David Archuleta looks like an American Idol. Yes, he’s a good singer, too. But the future of American Idol depends on fans wanting to watch American Idol, and David Archuleta is just the guy whose wholesome good looks can whip fans into a frenzy. I don’t think David Cook has that kind of charisma. He’s older, has an established style, and can play an instrument. He’s got the Zac Efron bangs going for him, but that’s not enough; David Cook has to play his music and sing to inspire his audience. His maturity and raw talent will help him establish a long lasting recording career, but they won’t make him an American Idol. I believe David Cook will go on to be memorable, like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson. Each finalist has a promising future, but I believe David Archuleta should become an American Idol first. American Idol has already launched David Cook’s career this season, he doesn’t need the title, nor would he represent brand as well as David Archuleta. Be sure to tune in.

More search term Q & A…from wedding tattoos to Yorkie puppy cuts

May 19, 2008

Searches for Nick and Mariah’s tattoos have led viewers to my blog, and I hope you all were not disappointed. Thanks to you, this post has a record of 935 views so far. Also popular were searches for Bear Grylls (Sorry, I couldn’t find the diarrhea video), Yorkshire Terrier aka “Yorkie” puppy cuts, and of course, there are those of you who are interested in spandex.

1) I’m looking for Mariah’s & Nick’s tattoos. Here’s a picture of Nick and Mariah’s tattoos from a comprehensive site vanashingtattoo.com. “Nick Cannon” is inked as the body of a butterfly tattoo on the small of her back. Incorporating Nick in a butterfly is meaningful symbol for Mariah compared to the “Mrs. Cannon” or “MC” tattoos rumored to have been inked on one of her butt cheeks.

2) Are their any pictures of tattoos for married couples? Check out tattoojohnny’s designs for ideas.

3) Is Bear Grylls a model? Bear reveals more about himself on his You Tube channel. If you go there, you can send him a message. I don’t think Bear is moonlighting as a model, but you can buy a Bear Grylls Rocks T- shirt.

4) I want to know more about Spandex. Click here to learn all about this versatile fabric, and here to purchase some for yourself.

5) Do you have any pictures of Yorkie puppy cuts?
