  • Rabbi reveals smoke and mirrors of reality TV

    By Ryan Torok

    January 3, 2014 | 2:32 pm

    When National Geographic Channel’s reality television series “Church Rescue” featured the Pacific Jewish Center (PJC) in Venice Beach last month, the synagogue’s leader, Rabbi Eliyahu Fink, praised the episode. 

    “Overall, I thought it as a great portrayal of our shul,” Fink said....

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion – Go Scratch!

    By Ilana Angel

    October 15, 2012 | 7:37 am

    My, my, my.  After an insanely excruciating season, the Real Housewives of New Jersey came to a screaming halt and it is bittersweet.  I am thrilled because this show sucked this season, but disappointed that it’s over because as bad as it was, it is crack, and not having it will...

  • Real Housewives of NYC Finale Snooze

    By Ilana Angel

    October 4, 2012 | 4:52 pm

    I have been watching this season with very limited interest.  I didn’t pay close enough attention to blog it, but I watched, and drank, and was thoroughly disgusted.  They tried to revamp the show with three new cast members but it didn’t work.  As the season ends, none of the new...

  • Real Housewives of NYC – She is Coma Toast!

    By Ilana Angel

    August 28, 2012 | 3:16 pm

    The much anticipated three part trip to St. Barths has begun.  We start with the flight onto the small island and Carole talking about the loss of John and Caroline.  I love Carole and actually don’t like it when she talks about them. She seems uncomfortable when she does and I...

  • Real Housewives of New York City are Lame

    By Ilana Angel

    August 21, 2012 | 9:05 am

    It is amazing what these women are willing to show on television.  They may no longer be entertaining, but they are fascinating.  We start this week at the same party as last week.  Aviva is a yenta who stirs up trouble and Heather is annoyed by how everyone backstabs each other.

  • Married to Jonas is Horrible & I’m Hooked

    By Ilana Angel

    August 20, 2012 | 7:00 pm

    I’d love to tell you that I watched this show because it is my job, but the truth is I was curious.  My curiosity quickly turned to the type of fascination that one experiences when watching a train wreck.  You want to turn away, but you just can’t.  This might be the most...

  • Rest in Peace Lynn Hudson

    By Ilana Angel

    August 18, 2012 | 8:41 am

    Chicago based reality television blogger Lynn Hudson has passed away.  She was a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and beloved member of the blogosphere. Lynn passed away on her 49th birthday and the loss is shocking.  My heart is broken for her child and husband.

    Lynn was an...

  • The Bachelorette Nightmare Ends

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 9:04 pm

    I love this show and no matter how hard I try to not get sucked in, I always do.  This was, according to the insanely ridiculous Chris Harrison, the most dramatic, surprising and emotional season ever.  The thing is, it’s never that dramatic, surprising or emotional.  Harrison...

  • The Bachelorette Men Tell All Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    July 16, 2012 | 11:29 pm

    This episode comes every season and I have yet to see the point.  What is it with The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that makes them want to recap every single thing?  There are some funny moments I suppose, but in the end I would be perfectly fine without the tell all specials.

  • The Bachelorette is Crawling to the Finish

    By Ilana Angel

    July 11, 2012 | 8:37 pm

    I got a few emails this week telling me I was being too harsh in terms of Chris Harrison.  I don’t mean to be and so I am sorry.  I will no longer talk about the fact that he is not needed on this show.  I will also not make a big deal about the fact that it is creepy for him to be...

  • Conversations from Twitter – Part 8

    By Ilana Angel

    July 6, 2012 | 9:17 am

    When I started this series of interviews a lot of people wrote to tell me I should talk to @WillLoveInc because he was fabulous.  I did not follow Will and he did not follow me, so I was curious about who this person was.  Before I got a chance to check him out, he tweeted that I was...

  • The Bachelorette Recap – Hometown Dates

    By Ilana Angel

    July 3, 2012 | 6:36 pm

    We are back in the States, which is both good and bad.  Good because it means we are close to the end, and bad because it means we have to sit through a lot of recapping.  Emily needs to reflect on all her travels and the four men she has left.  I’m not big on reality television...

  • The Bachelorette in Prague

    By Ilana Angel

    June 29, 2012 | 8:33 pm

    Emily and the remaining men are in Prague this week. I think of all the seasons of both the Bachelor and Bachelorette, the locations Emily has been to are my favorite.  I have loved everywhere they have gone.  Prague is beautiful and within the first minute of the show the view is...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 7

    By Ilana Angel

    June 27, 2012 | 12:13 am

    I was very much looking forward to talking to Twitter’s @AsianPosh1.  She has been following me on Twitter for a long time and has been truly lovely. She defends me to the haters, reads my reality blog and my lifestyle blog, and always has a kind word for everyone who needs it. ...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 6

    By Ilana Angel

    June 24, 2012 | 10:13 pm

    When I called my latest interview, he answered the phone by serenading me with Sinatra’s “My Way”.  He sounded great, and while surprising, exactly what I expected.  That was my introduction to Twitter’s @JohnnytheGrk.  I knew I would like him because I love his wife...

  • The Bachelorette is Starting to Bore Me

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2012 | 8:15 pm

    I love this show and I love Emily but I am starting to lose interest in the whole thing.  It is moving very slowly, Emily is sweet but wearing thin, and I’m not sure I see her with any of the men she has left.  There are a couple of great men, but I’m not seeing the chemistry she...

  • Bachelorette Emily in London

    By Ilana Angel

    June 12, 2012 | 1:10 am

    Emily and her daughter are in London, which I am excited about.  Not the show as much as the city.  It is my favorite city in the world, the birthplace of my fabulous boyfriend, and where I hope to retire.  It will be a fun week full of beautiful scenery and embarrassing American...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 5

    By Ilana Angel

    June 11, 2012 | 6:42 pm

    My interview this week is with Twitter’s @MintedRoyalty.  I don’t know how he found me, or how it is I started following him, but I do know that this is a truly remarkable human being.  I have been surprised by all of the people I have interviewed through this series, but Lucien...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Try to Ruin a Wedding

    By Ilana Angel

    June 11, 2012 | 8:40 am

    This show is bad.  So bad frankly, that it is near impossible to watch.  I will stick with it until the end of the season because I’m already too far in, but unless they replace the entire cast, I will not be back for another season. By entire cast of course I mean Teresa too.  I...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 4

    By Ilana Angel

    June 7, 2012 | 10:02 am

    I was very excited about doing this series of interviews, and while I knew it would be great, I was not sure how long it would last.  I have been interviewing people that follow my reality blog on Twitter and with each person I talk to I find myself loving the series more.  They...

  • The Bachelorette in Bermuda

    By Ilana Angel

    June 5, 2012 | 8:59 am

    I was certain I would be sick of Emily by now but I love her and think she is fabulous.  The men are not that great which is a drag, but it only takes one good one and she has that.  She looks great and even though she is a lady, we see she is going to drop an F Bomb next week so...

  • Real Housewives of NYC - Catching Up with Jill Zarin

    By Ilana Angel

    June 5, 2012 | 12:05 am

    As the new season of RHoNYC begins, I am more interested in what is going on with Jill Zarin than with Countless (LuAnn), Drunky (Ramona), Delusional (Sonja), and the new ladies.  I contacted Jill and asked her if she wanted to chat and as always she was gracious and open to talk...

  • The Bachelorette Looks Great in a Harness

    By Ilana Angel

    June 2, 2012 | 2:45 pm


    Let me begin by saying how sorry I am this is so late in getting posted!  I got a kick out of all the emails and nudges to get this puppy up.  I promise that starting this week I will post on Monday nights after the show.  Your loyalty to my Bachelorette recaps is appreciated and...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 2

    By Ilana Angel

    May 24, 2012 | 1:27 am

    Last week I began my series of interviews with reality TV fans who follow me on Twitter.  I spoke with and it was great.  She is a wonderful lady, a lover of reality TV, and a southern belle.  This week it was my pleasure to speak...

  • The Bachelorette - Week 2 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    May 22, 2012 | 12:42 am

    It’s week two and again, just five minutes in, I am totally into it.  Emily is beautiful and that we are in Charlotte, not Los Angeles makes it better.  We see Emily with her daughter and we are reminded that this is, on some level, real.  She would not involve little Ricky if she...

  • The Bachelorette is Back and Surprisingly Good

    By Ilana Angel

    May 20, 2012 | 10:22 pm

    I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette series.  By love of course I mean I am obsessed with it and the worse it becomes, Ashley, the more I want to blog about it.  I am a true romantic and believe love can be found for everyone. By everyone of course I mean everyone who is not on this...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 1

    By Ilana Angel

    May 18, 2012 | 7:56 am

    I was so sure Aubrey O’Day was going to make it into the final two of Celebrity Apprentice, I bet one my readers she would.  She felt strongly Aubrey was out and so we made a wager.  If the repulsive Ms. O’Day was in, she would write a guest blog for me, and if awful Aubrey was...

  • Celebrity Apprentice: Beauty & the Beast Go Home

    By Ilana Angel

    May 9, 2012 | 8:52 am

    We start this week with Lisa celebrating that Dayana has been sent home. She is miserable and it’s a real shame because she has built a career on being tough and raunchy, but still funny.  We have seen that in real life she is not tough, mean, and not that funny.

    The task is to do...

  • The Painfully Predictable Celebrity Apprentice

    By Ilana Angel

    May 5, 2012 | 12:41 pm

    This show has become so painful to watch it is has taken me almost a week to blog about it.  I watched it on Sunday with all of you, and sat down a half dozen times to write about it, and just couldn’t do it.  I feel like every week is the same show.  The players are predicable,...

  • Shahs of Sunset Finale Recap - Finally!

    By Ilana Angel

    May 1, 2012 | 5:47 pm

    I don’t know what is harder to believe, that the first season of Shahs of Sunset is over, or that someone at Bravo actually thought that 6 weeks of this show would be enough.  Really Bravo?  We are hooked, and now we are also pissed.  These people make for good television and 6...
