BB7 Chilltown All Stars have the Ultimate Power by Mike Liebner
|It’s about time that I chime in and give my thoughts on this Summer’s hottest TV show Big Brother All Stars.
I must admit there were a few weeks where I was uncomfortable with the season 6 alliance of Howie, Kaysar, Janelle and James and how they did NOT go after Will and Boogie.
At that point I would say that I despised those 2 guys (Chilltown).
But as things have turned in the game and have removed my favorite All Stars (Jase, James and Kaysar), I must say that I now have a new found respect for Will and Boogie.
I mean how are these guys pulling it off? Despite everyone knowing that they were a team aka dynamic duo, how could the all stars let them stay in the game? It just amazes me. (more…)
Rockstar Supernova was moving! By Roxanne McDonald
|Rockstar Supernova, Tuesday, August 29, 2006 was a moving recap of the emotions and follow-up of Dilana’s comments to Ryan and to the press last week. After she had apologized on the show, back at the mansion, Brooke reports, emotions were still raw.|
Storm offers to toast, and Dilana is reticent. Lukas says to her and everyone at the dinner table that “life is a constant clinic.”
Though they were forgiving and supportive, supporting her by telling her to overcome it, a choked-up Dilana says it will take her a while to get over it. She feels, she tells the camera, her whole world has ended (implicit in this end is also the end of her rock career). (more…)
|BB7 Danielle is Going Down by Roxanne McDonald
||Big Brother fans and aficionados knew it was coming, but we didn’t anticipate it would come from the source it did.
The Tuesday, August 29, 2006 episode of BB7 has brought Danielle down.
Will nudges Janelle to talk to Erika.
Janelle tells Erika she won’t go after her (Erika) next week:
Erika: Hmmm. I think I’ll take that deal.
Janelle: I think she believed me.
The final six haven’t even played out the PoV competition and already they are scheming and negotiating (and banking on the fact that Janelle, on the block with Georgie, will win the PoV). (more…)
Million Dollar Listing debuted on Bravo Tuesday, August 29, 2006.
|Each of the six one-hour episodes promise two real estate companies working to sell a house in Malibu and Hollywood areas.
The “cast” is composed of Shannon McCloud, Scotty Brown, Madison Hildebrand, Carol Bird (why does that name sound familiar?), Lydia Simon, Ray and Dia Schuldenfrei, Chris Cortazzo, and Chase Campen.
This episode features Shannon McCloud, trying to sell her ex-fiance’s Rising Glen listing (as she represents both Jeff and the prospective buyer, Farrah), which has an asking price of $2.395 million.
Newbie real estate agent Madison Hildebrand (looking fresh out of prep school and following the guidance of seasoned mentor Scotty Brown) attempting to sell the 3.2-million “fixer-upper”, at Anna Cappa View, to potential buyer Greg, who will flip the house and make a cool mill profit. (more…)
Big Brother 7 is down to six master gamesters, all allying with one another and each out to eliminate the rest.
|The logic and logistics are lost on some but then again, are coming to light.
For example, Erika notes in the Diary room that “everybody is in an alliance with everybody else. Yup. And nope.
Further, on Sunday, August 27, Erika as HoH and Danielle as her closest bud have a chat in Erika’s new paper and cloth burst of flowers room.
Erika is trying to figure out why Janelle would vote James out, and once the two realize it, they see how Will is pulling his puppet’s strings: Erika says, “Will’s got some control over her.” Yup.
Will is getting more egotistical by the minute, if that’s possible. And he complains more, too – probably to keep up the act and nothing more: first he bitches about Erika’s HoH room, saying how “you can get too much of a good thing,” in this case, flowers. (more…)
Rock Star Supernova’s Elimination Night Aug. 23 by Roxanne McDonald
The one with the most poise, the one most likely to win maybe, has gotten a little egomaniacal already?
RockStar SuperNova’s elimination night (on August 23) was expected, though some of the subterfuge going on and shared with us on Wednesday was not.
Evidently, as the house cams reveal, Dilana is starting to show off — in the wrong way. First, she digs Ryan, telling him he would have been nothing without the house band; and then telling him in a taunting way, “I’m getting more votes than you.” The remaining seven have been reading some of the comments and critiques on the Windows Live Space page, and one of the posts is addressed to Dilana and claims it is down to her and Ryan. (Of course, thousands who know what they are talking about disagree.) (more…)
Rock Star Supernova Recaps by Roxanne McDonald
|RockStar SuperNova, Wednesday, August 16, is like any Rock Star episode of this season or last (which was Rock Star INXS, for those of you who foolishly missed the best music reality show on TV).
No, wait. It is amped up a notch: SuperNova hits the stage: Jason on bass, Gilbey on lead, and Tommy on drums… and Dilana fronting.
The boys have opened the show with the preface that no one is anywhere near being “chosen” as the winner.
Tonight will start a series of weekly guest fronting, as SuperNova performs one newly written song for each of the next seven weeks: this week the guest spot will be taken by Dilana (great first choice on the band’s part, of course, for anyone with an ear is anticipating she WILL win this contest, anyway—if Lukas doesn’t). (more…)
America’s Got Talent Finale and Props to Regis by Roxanne McDonald
|I know I was pretty hard on the show in general, given its tacky middle America pandering and not so successful panning of The Gong Show and other mock games, and I am sorry to say I have to be equally harsh about America’s Got Talent grand finale.|
But if to show respect at least is to write about it, to give it air, okay, then the very writing here should suffice.
(After all, bad publicity is still publicity and all that….)I like Regis Philbin. I give him props for being angry and bitter and hateful and getting away with it, expressing it, giving vent, by way of cheesy and acceptable humor. (more…)
BB7 All-Stars – Gamut of Emotions by Roxanne McDonald
Big Brother 7 All Stars, August 17th, 2006
|Big Brother 7 All-Stars puts BB devotees through the gamut of emotions—or emotional responses.|
First, we are getting fed up with the Janelle thing, especially once she “scumbagged” (as Marcellas would say) her supposed “friend”.
Yep, she put Marcellas up for eviction, pretentiously confiding in him that she had to do it but that she would ensure he was only a pawn and going nowhere. (more…)
Big Brother All Stars – Will is Gaining Power by Roxanne McDonald
|By the time one gets through the Big Brother 7, Tuesday, August 1st episode, one is struck hard by the frightful possibility:
what if Will wins again?
It is a strong possibility, considering he has gone balls to wall with his intentional insulting, manipulating, and self-alienating, all of which appear to merely galvanize, or reinforce, his strength of presence in the BB house.
He has told them all during a veto meeting that he hates them all. He has cajoled and coerced Janelle—or attempted to convince her—to put a floater and a Chill Town member up, then work it so the floater goes home. (more…)
