  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 3

    By Ilana Angel

    November 12, 2014 | 7:33 am

    Typos are generously sponsored by Patron.

    Part 3 of this reunion feels like the Promised Land. It is finally over so I can put the Patron away. This season has been bad. By bad of course I mean I am entering RHONJ rehab and will not be feeding my addiction again. This show sucks....

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta are Back

    By Ilana Angel

    November 9, 2014 | 7:42 pm

    Typos are generously brought to you by Merlot.

    A lot has happened since they ended the last season and the truth is that we wait because we are addicted, not because it is compelling or even watchable television. They are an interesting group however, and when it comes to the...

  • Why Does Jersey Belle Matter?

    By Ilana Angel

    October 21, 2014 | 9:41 pm

    There are a lot of bloggers and reviewers of reality television. Some are kind, some funny, some mean, and then there is me. My blogs on reality TV are not for everyone. If you're offended by the words bitch, whore, or douchebag, you probably won't like my blogs on pop culture,...

  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the Gutter

    By Ilana Angel

    November 18, 2013 | 6:02 pm

    *Typos are generaously sponsored by Grey Goose.

    We start this week at Brandi’s with a panty shot, which was not necessary and Bravo sleaze. Brandi is visiting with her friend Jennifer and saying she used her boyfriend to get a house. It was a play on words, but she is on and off...

  • Real Housewives of Atlanta – Siamese Cats?

    By Ilana Angel

    November 11, 2013 | 5:50 am

    Every season, in every city, Bravo tells us this is the best year yet when it comes to the housewives.  It never is, until now. We are only two weeks in but I think this might really be the best season for Atlanta. It is a great group, they don’t really like each other, use each...

  • Real Housewives of Miami Has a Shocking Moment!

    By Ilana Angel

    October 28, 2013 | 7:57 pm

    I have been watching Real Housewives of Miami, but not blogging about it. The show is slow and not interesting, just like the cast. These women and their friendships are fake and it is all silly. We are almost through the season and all we have seen is fighting and crying. Alexia...

  • The Bethenny Talk Show is Really, Really Bad

    By Ilana Angel

    September 9, 2013 | 10:18 pm

    I am not a fan of Bethenny Frankel or the crap she peddles.  I think her drinks taste horrible, her lies are epic, she cannot keep her stories straight, married for TV, had a baby for TV, puts gag orders on anyone who speaks badly about her, is unwilling to admit that her path to...

  • Not Here to Make Friends: Competing on Reality TV

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 25, 2013 | 3:24 pm

    There are all kinds of careers in reality television. Last night's Top Chef Masters, which pits established chefs against one another in a bid to win money for their favorite charities, saw the return of a runner-up from the original Top Chef, Las Vegas' second place finisher Bryan...

  • 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...

  • 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

    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...

  • Chef Roble is a Putz on TV & Twitter

    By Ilana Angel

    June 20, 2013 | 8:21 am

    I have watched Chef Roble & Co. quite a few times.  I don’t blog it because it would be the same blog every single week. For example: “Chef Roble’s staff creates a menu, he takes credit. Chef Roble’s staff executes the menu, he takes credit.  Chef Roble is mean to his staff, rude...

  • 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. ...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • A Conversation with Chanel Omari, Princess of Long Island

    By Ilana Angel

    June 9, 2013 | 2:40 pm

    Chanel Omari is a 28 year old Modern Orthodox woman from Long Island. I spent some time talking with her last week and I can tell you she is a truly remarkable woman.  When I think about my son meeting a nice Jewish girl, I’d like it to be someone like Chanel.  She possesses all...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Painful Real Housewives of Orange County

    By Ilana Angel

    April 27, 2013 | 9:19 pm

    When I blogged the season opener of the OC ladies, I predicted I would be sick of them by episode three.  Turns out one was enough.  I’ve been watching, but from the comfort of a drunken stupor.  They are painful. Painful to look at, painful to listen to, painful to blog about. ...

  • All Star Celebrity Apprentice is Not Fun to Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    March 25, 2013 | 4:33 pm

    I like to watch this show, but must tell you that blogging it is not fun.  It drags on forever and I will, for the hundredth time, say that two hours a week is just too much to ask of us. This show should be an hour. Period. I’m going to plow through this week because quite...

  • Married to Medicine Explodes Onto Television

    By Ilana Angel

    March 25, 2013 | 3:27 pm

    After hearing a lot of hype about this show, I was interested in seeing what all the fuss was about.  These women are something else.  Think of the Real Housewives of Atlanta with an edge.  It is the same train wreck, just different chicks driving the train.  Some are impressive,...
