  • Loser Real Housewives of Orange County

    By Ilana Angel

    July 15, 2013 | 7:03 pm

    We are still in Canada with the losers, and as a proud Canadian, I am mortified that this bunch of screaming banshees is polluting glorious Whistler with their toxic screeching.  Lauri, who should not be anywhere near this group, told everyone Vicki had a threesome, and all hell...

  • Sleeping With the Fishes – a Movie

    By Ilana Angel

    July 7, 2013 | 4:58 pm

    I saw a movie today called “Sleeping With The Fishes” and I wanted write about it because it was really good.  It is a small independent film written by Nicole Gomez Fisher.  In reading about Nicole and the film, it is described as a Latino movie, but I saw it as a Jewish film with...

  • Jonathan Jaxson Talks LeAnn Rimes & More

    By Ilana Angel

    July 2, 2013 | 2:10 pm

    To tell you the truth, I had no idea who Jonathan Jaxson was until people started to write that I should interview him.  I watch a lot of reality TV, and like to think I’m up to date on pop culture, but I am not much of a gossip person, and don’t read gossip magazines or tabloids....

  • Real Housewives of Orange Country Give Nothing

    By Ilana Angel

    July 1, 2013 | 7:15 pm

    After the useless 100th episode special of last week, we are back with the ladies of Orange County.  I want to start by saying that I think Gretchen is a slut bag, incapable of real relationships because she is a moron. Okay. That felt good.  We start with Tamra who is at the gym...

  • Princesses of Long Island Iced Tea Intervention

    By Ilana Angel

    July 1, 2013 | 12:02 am

    *Typos brought to you by Jose Cuervo.  Don't judge. 

    Oy Dear!  These chicks get more annoying with each week.  I see the humor in them, and there are truly charming moments, but the heavy handed Jewishness bugs the crap out of me.  Anyone can throw around some Yiddish and read an...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 30, 2013 | 6:21 pm

    *Typos are brought to you courtesy of Captain Morgan.  Don't judge.

    This week in hell starts at Melissa’s house, where she is talking to Antonia about her book.  She fake cries and I am over it.  She is full of crap and we all see it.  Cut to Joe getting home from his...

  • LeAnn Rimes, Darrell Brown & the Failure of Spitfire

    By Ilana Angel

    June 27, 2013 | 7:42 am

    LeAnn Rimes is suing Kim Smiley and her daughter for taping a phone conversation, which is against the law in California.  The truth is that a lot of people don’t know about the lawsuit because LeAnn won’t talk about it, and did not do any interviews where it was allowed to be...

  • Princesses Long Island - Oy Dear!

    By Ilana Angel

    June 24, 2013 | 6:47 am

    *Typos brought to you courtesy of Jose Cuervo. Don't judge. 

    I watch this show with one eye shut and a lot of alcohol.  It is mortifying in terms of how Judaism is portrayed. I am embarrassed by these women and feel they do a grave injustice to the stereotypes of Jewish women. ...

  • The Bachelorette Crawls Along

    By Ilana Angel

    June 20, 2013 | 11:35 am

    We are down to 13 men and while a couple of them are quite lovely, I don’t see any of them with Des.  This show does not work anymore because fame trumps love.  Case in point, Brain, who was kicked out when his girlfriend Stephanie came crying about how he deceived her, is back...

  • Dating 101: The Art of Flirting

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2013 | 5:12 pm

    Flirting is one of the few things about being single that is fun.  I love to flirt, and the truth is that when it comes to the art of flirtatious banter, I am an expert. Sexual banter?  Again, an expert.  Knowing the perfect time to twirl my hair, laugh, bat my eyelashes, and offer...

  • Real Housewives of Orange County Crap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 18, 2013 | 8:33 am

    There is a lot of hype about the fact that these women are about to celebrate their 100th episode, which is fascinating because this show sucks and never should have reached this milestone.  We can only blame ourselves. We watch, and they laugh at the fact that we are watching. ...

  • Princesses Long Island: Oh. My. God.

    By Ilana Angel

    June 17, 2013 | 3:39 pm

    Chanel is the only reason to watch this show.  Sadly she has her loser friends along for the ride, and they are out of control.  That these women are all about being Jewish is mortifying to anyone who is Jewish.  I am Jewish and it makes me both mad and sad that these freaks are on...

  • Happy Birthday Barry Manilow

    By Ilana Angel

    June 17, 2013 | 7:49 am

    Barry Manilow turns 70 day.  Happy Birthday Mr. Manilow.  Last night I went to see him perform in Los Angeles at The Greek Theater, and he was fantastic.  I couldn’t tell if he was actually singing through the whole thing, but the slight delay in his voice matching the music would...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 16, 2013 | 4:56 pm

    We start this week with Teresa working out with a woman who has a body that I find offensive.  Eat a sandwich lady.  With mayo!  Teresa looks amazing and she is talking about Gia’s birthday party, which is coming up, and co-ed. I have a son and it is stressful so I can just imagine...

  • Pure Leaf, Lottery Tickets, Tzedaka, Father’s Day

    By Ilana Angel

    June 15, 2013 | 6:32 pm

    I love iced tea.  I never drank it until I moved to the States, but ever since then I have been hooked.  I recently discovered Pure Leaf and it is my favorite.  I like the sweetened one and could drink it all day, everyday.  I never keep it in my house because I worry I will figure...

  • Wendy Williams + LeAnn Rimes = Epic Fail

    By Ilana Angel

    June 15, 2013 | 9:56 am

    I love Wendy Williams.  I think she is funny, smart, outspoken, brave, open, and talented.  I once wrote a blog about how great I thought she was, which she read, and when she came to LA for a promo tour, she invited me to say hello.  I went to meet her and she was really quite...

  • Real Housewives of Orange County Jail

    By Ilana Angel

    June 10, 2013 | 7:03 pm

    We are still in Mexico for Tamra’s bachelorette party.  It is a bachelorette party for a woman with no wedding date, and a man who is not sure he wants to marry her, but here we are.  It occurs to me as I watch this show that it should be shown in prison.  Convicts should be forced...

  • Princesses Long Island: Disrespecting Shabbat

    By Ilana Angel

    June 9, 2013 | 8:43 pm

    This show is a train wreck in terms of reality TV, and a nightmare if you are Jewish.  It is offensive because with the exception of one girl, Chanel, there is nothing Jewish about these chicks other than the fact that they happen to be Jewish.  They don’t even know what Shabbat...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey: Bad Editing Rules

    By Ilana Angel

    June 9, 2013 | 6:19 pm

    We start this week with Teresa and her girls.  Teresa has never looked better and her kids are gorgeous.  They are funny, real kids and watching them reminds me of my sisters and me.  Milania is hilarious, Audriana is a little doll, Gabriella is the classic middle girl, and Gia is...

  • The Bachelorette Double Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 3, 2013 | 11:03 pm

    It is that time of year again where you can spend two hours a week crawling out of your own skin while you try to cut out your own eyeballs with dull scissors.  Yes people, the Bachelorette is back, and she is as annoying as ever. Desiree, who got dumped by Sean because her brother...

  • Prom, Dating, Knowing Your Worth

    By Ilana Angel

    June 2, 2013 | 10:48 pm

    My son went to his Junior Prom this weekend. He looked so handsome and grown up that it took my breath away. As we took pictures I stared at this man and wondered where the time had gone.  He has grown up in what feels like a minute and I cannot wrap my head around it.  He is tall,...

  • OMG! Insider, LeAnn Rimes & One-Sided Journalism

    By Ilana Angel

    May 30, 2013 | 9:24 am

    I have written a lot of articles about LeAnn Rimes.  I find her to be fascinating in that she is obviously dealing with mental illness, yet nobody in the world of entertainment journalism is willing to talk about it.  She is unstable in the same way Amanda Bynes is, yet everyone in...

  • Love, Sex & God

    By Ilana Angel

    May 28, 2013 | 9:18 pm

    My friends have often said I am obsessed with the romantic notion of love, and my big mistake is putting love as my number one requirement in a relationship.  I want love.  Sex is easy to find, but love is elusive, and I want it.  I think sex is better when love is there, and while...

  • Married to Medicine Reunion Double Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    May 28, 2013 | 7:40 pm

    Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, it is going down with the women of Atlanta.   They have all paired off and the lines are divided.  It is clear who likes who, who hates who, who wants to kill who, and who I would want to be friends with.  Then there is Andy.  Dear sweet Andy Cohen starts the...

  • Real Housewives of Orange County – ENOUGH

    By Ilana Angel

    May 16, 2013 | 2:13 pm

    I have been sick with a bad cold and sinus infection for a week.  A drag to be sure, but also a relief because I was on antibiotics and could not drink, which made it impossible to watch the Real Housewives of Orange County.  One should never attempt to watch this show without the...

  • Married to Medicine Gets Drunk

    By Ilana Angel

    May 14, 2013 | 6:18 pm

    These chicks have been classy, sophisticated, immature, and trashy.  They are great television and with only two episodes left, they are scrambling to end on a good note.  Not going to happen.  We have seen too much to believe they are as together as they want us to think they...

  • Happy Mother’s Day by Guest Blogger, My Son

    By Ilana Angel

    May 11, 2013 | 12:44 pm

    In honor of Mother’s Day, I am submitting my mother's blog and would like to give 17 reasons as to why my Mother is the best, on account of the fact that is how many Mother’s Days she has had.

    1. She is extremely uplifting. She tells me how proud she is of me, and how incredible...

  • Happy “Mutha” Day LeAnn Rimes

    By Ilana Angel

    May 11, 2013 | 8:38 am

    LeAnn Rimes and I have an interesting relationship.  I like to write about how odd I think she is, and she likes to write about what a bad Jew I am.  I like to marvel at her fashion choices, and she likes to have her publicist write letters to my editor.  I am constantly amazed by...

  • Married to Medicine – The Lemon Squeeze

    By Ilana Angel

    May 6, 2013 | 7:44 am

    I look forward to this show each week and am bummed it is such a short season.  These chicks are crazy in all the ways you want reality television women to be.  Unlike the Real Housewives of wherever, they are not yet aware enough of the cameras to have it alter their behavior too...

  • A Conversation with Mariah Huq – Married to Medicine

    By Ilana Angel

    May 5, 2013 | 5:39 pm

    Married to Medicine, like all reality shows about women, has polarized the fans into groups who support different teams.  It is the nature of the beast, and in the interest of full discloser, I will tell you that I am on Team Mariah. I think she is fabulously entertaining,...
