In the last scene of the third episode of Lifetime's summer breakout hit UnREAL, two producers of a Bachelor-type show sit poolside after orchestrating a vicious yet banal catfight among their contestants.

Post No. 5: Nicki Minaj vs Taylor Swift

I’ve been eye-raped, and it’s my own fault. In Post No. 3, I mentioned being proud of not knowing any Minaj tunes.   After a few more headlines with her complaints about “a little funny business goin’ on” because Anaconda was not nominated for Video of the Year, I decided to see what she and Anaconda are all about....more
