Can't Stand The Hate: Cutting BridalPlasty Down To Size

Kristy is an occasional guest blogger for The Demoiselles and a member of the TD community (moniker “Owl“); an opinionated 20-whatever-something who can’t seem to shut up about feminist, queer, and fat issues; a Tumbl-er who posts pretty things, funny things, random things and her personal theology (Owls & Elephants); a damn good baker and a shitty knitter....more

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Finals Are Here

Conspiracy theories aside, who do you think will win? Unlike a lot of other folks, I actually called it that Brandy would exit last week. And unlike a lot of other folks, I don't think it's some huge tea party conspiracy. I think it's a continuation of a fine, but frustrating Dancing with the Stars tradition: An overwhelming urge to root for the underdog. And to take a "ringer" down a peg or two. ...more

I think the saddest part of the entire season was that Brandy was voted off right before the ...more

A Dancing With the Stars Public Service Political Announcement

Look, I get it. Bristol Palin is the only Palin you can currently vote for, and to some, booting her off the show prior to her sell-by date would have seemed like a vast left-wing conspiracy to hinder the entire Palin family regardless of political weight. But here's the deal: On Dancing With the Stars, typically -- not uniformly, but typically -- the best D-list celebrity dancer wins based on talent. You are supposed to vote off the dancers in order based on their respective ballroom suckage. ...more

Thank you for this very important PSA. Educational and hilarious. Let's just hope your message ...more

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Semi-Finals Finally Heat Up

Giving credit where credit is due ... all four semi-finalists do their personal version of "bringing it." In a "very special" Dancing with the Stars this week, we got to hear all about the adversity that each star faced. This gave many an opportunity for me to talk back to the screen like saying: "You got a Disney show when you were, like, 12, I don't count that as a lifetime of struggle." Or "I don't remember everyone calling you a sleaze, really. And your mom kinda chose to go ahead and thrust you into that national spotlight, despite how hard it would be for you." Or "Damn, you both were in cars that killed people? I am not sure I had put that together until just now" ...more

Shocked and disgusted with the way the judges handled their "professionalism". They are the ones ...more

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Top 5 and, Well, I Give Up!

America, what are you thinking? Yes, the last two weeks have been scandalous, by DWtS standards, as two stronger dancers went (Audrina and Rick) while two weaker dancers stayed (Bristol and Kurt). I'd like to say it's clear who will go this week, but let's face it: What do I know? I can only tell you who *should* go. ...more

Supernanny Puts Us All in The Naughty Chair and Quits

Tackling the wretched behavior of America's children has finally taken its toll on Jo Frost, star of ABC's reality show Supernanny. After six seasons of caped-crusading her way across the country to fix out-of-control families, Nanny Jo is putting us all in the naughty chair and marching out the door. ...more

I love her direct, no non-sense approach. There were times with my two-year-old I would say, ...more

Project Runway recap: The WTFinale

You may notice this recap is late in coming. You may notice it's not going to be the usual blow-by-blow, moment-by-moment, outfit-by-outfit recap that I usually try to write. You may notice I have trouble saying anything at all about this year's season finale. Image courtesy Lifetime And all of that is because I still cannot wrap my head around the outcome. And I know I'm not alone. ...more

And yes, I always prefer the nice designers to the dramatic ones :)

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Top 6 Trod the Boards with Retreads

This being the 200th episode, Dancing with the Stars decided to do a retread episode: This season's couples "reinterpreting" favorite dances fromprevious seasons. And they brought back the celeb who danced that favorite dance originally to join the judges panel for that one dance. They also brought back two previous champions to "coach" the teams in a team Cha Cha Challenge. (Where is David Bowie when you need him?) Um, I'm not into the themes on DWtS this year. Including this one. ...more

Project Runway Recap: The Final Four

I seriously want to kick some people in the shins right now, namely: Mondo and Michael's parents. With $9000 to spend, 6 weeks to work and 10 pieces to build, the final four of Michael, Mondo, Andy and Gretchen get to work. and Tim sets off to visit them each in their home town. So, yes, we kick off with Tim getting to go to Hawaii to visit Andy. ...more
