Desperate Housewife Electrocuted

It was known that one of the "Desperate Housewives" would be killed off this season.

However, I was not expecting it to be Edie and I was not expecting her to survive a choking and a car accident but then get electrocuted.

Talk about a streak of events of bad luck.

Maybe she survives the electrocution too - but I think it's unlikely.

So, I stumbled upon a personality quiz called 'Which Housewife are you?' and apparently I am Susan.

This quiz pegged me head on when it says, "You believe in living in the moment, from impulse to impulse. Some of those sudden whims make you the fun, spontaneous, creative person you are. But then again, you're often left explaining just how you jumped to the wrong conclusion, again. Sometimes planning is your friend. But on the other hand, why not leave that type of thing to the people who are good at it?"

That's surprisingly accurate for an online quiz.

Any other "Desperate Housewives" fan's should take this quiz and find out a little more about yourself. Let's just hope no one gets Edie as their answer, cause we all now know how her story ends.

The Bachelor's Ex-Fiance Melissa Rycroft and Playboy?

According to Star Magazine, Playboy might be in Melissa Rycroft's future.

The problem is - Melissa signed a contract for ABC's hit show "Dancing with the Stars". 

The contract prohibits her from posing nude during the show and for the three months after it's finale. 

By the time that rolls around, she very well could be yesterday's news of reality TV. I hope not - but by then we might be saying - Melissa who?

We will just have to wait and see if Melissa will be exposing her birthday suit.

Interview with Grey's Anatomy addict

I interviewed a fellow Grey's Anatomy addict, Steph Sanders ,the creator of the Facebook group - Greys Anatomy and Twilight Obsession. I wanted to interview this particular obsessed fan because she doesn't have Tivo but somehow has never missed an episode which is true commitment.

Do you get together with someone to watch every week?

Me and my mum watch it every week without fail, she's not as addicted to it as me, but she's "my person".

What are some of your other favorite shows?

Desperate Housewives, House and Crossing Jordan.

Mere and Dere together forever? What's your take on their relationship?

I think they will last, they seem to have this connection and bond which to me means they will last - have children and finally get married!!

Whose your favorite character (past or present) and why?

I really have two favorite characters. The first one is Callie - she is just like me he he and I can relate to her better than i can all the other characters and for some reason I would love just to be like her. The second one is Erica - my god she was awesome and Ballsy which I wasn't till I saw what it can do for you. I think I have just learned from these two - Really miss Erica though!

What is it about Grey's that you love so much? What is it that keeps you coming back for more?

I love the show and the stories that are in it. It's amazing and it captivates me. I also wish I could be like that one day as everything seems perfect and would be amazing if I could, and it focus's on problems that a lot of people go through and how to kinda say to yourself "wow, I can get through this".

Kyle XY Series Finale Leaves Us Hanging

I remember when "Kyle XY" began. 

It premiered at the end of the June of 2006. "Kyle XY" had all the makings of a great show - innocence, discovery, childhood, combat, heartbreak, secrets, disappointment, betrayal, friendship, a complicated story line, drama, mystery, love, family, death, good vs. evil and of course a H-O-T main character.

HOT may be an understatement with Matt Dallas who played the main character - Kyle. With or without a belly button, this guy was red-hot and I would have loved to see all those clones of Kyle in the series finale. Can you say - dream come true.

There was nothing this show was missing so I knew it would be a hit. This is why I was so shocked to hear that ABC Family had decided to cancel the show with it's third season.

Fans were expecting a lot of answers that were not given with the series finale. 

With so many unanswered questions, it seems to me like a cliffhanger ending might have been written when a fourth season was still expected.

I just can't believe the writers would chose to leave us hanging like that. 

When you love a show and stay committed for three season's you expect the ending to do it justice. The series finale of "Kyle XY" unfortunately did not do the series justice and as a fan, I was very disappointed.

The Bachelor's Ex-Fiance's quick return to Reality Television

"Dancing with the Stars" has never really been able to keep my attention but this season's surprising cast has got me interested.

We all know how I feel about The Bachelor and what happened to Melissa Rycroft.

Along with the rest of America, I want nothing more than to see Melissa happy and she looks happy on the show. 

When one door closes another one opens and for Melissa that door is "Dancing with the Stars". 

I was so surprised to see her on another reality show so quick. It shows how strong she is. She isn't hiding from the public which I really admire.

I am not saying, because Melissa is on the show, I will watch religiously but as long as she's on the show, I will try and catch it as often as possible.

Being Pregnant in High School never looked so fun

The first season of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" is over.

When this show first started being advertised, I knew I would love it for so many reasons. 

First of all, nothing with Molly Ringwald could ever be bad. 

Second of all, the show was created by Brenda Hampton who also created "7th Heaven" - my favorite show growing up apart from "Full House". 

Third of all, pregnant teen equals guaranteed D-R-A-M-A.

I love this show but I don't think it's all that realistic in some ways. It makes teenage pregnancy look like a good idea. In this society where kids are having sex younger and younger, this is not the example we want to set. 

So I just want to clear a few things up for the naive teenagers who are watching this show thinking - that doesn't look so bad. 

First of all, not everyone's parent's could afford to help their teenager raise a baby. Second of all, not everyone's teenage "first" boyfriend would stick with you while you have another guy's baby. And finally, when you are the pregnant teenager - your fellow High School students treat you more like Juno and less like a victim.

Beside these few flaws of reality, the show is pretty awesome. 

For a show about a pregnant teenager, it is ironically innocent. I can't wait for the second season because now that Amy has decided to keep the baby, the decision's and drama have just begun.

The Next Bachelorette is . . .

The next Bachelorette is Jillian Harris, one of the three finalist on this past season of "The Bachelor" with Jason Mesnick.

With the dramatic ending of "The Bachelor", I was so blinded by my anger towards Jason, that I didn't talk about the announcement of the next season.

Jillian seemed like an obvious choice for the next Bachelorette. The only reason it's surprising is because they have always chosen the runner-up, not someone who didn't make it to the finale. Whatever their reason's are, it was a good choice. 

The next season of "The Bachelorette" is coming sooner than I thought and I'm excited to watch this down-to-earth interior designer from Canada fall in love. Get ready because it premieres May 18 on ABC

Scandalous XoXo Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl - the number one source of the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite - is back with new and exciting scandals. 

Could B and Nate be getting back together? 

This weeks episode ended with Chuck finding Nate's jacket at B's house. 

Uh oh Chuck - looks like your competitions back. But who will win this one? Maybe V will come out victorious. 

In next week's episode it looks like Chuck and V will be getting together. But how far will V take it? Is it just about making Nate and B jealous or is there something really there? Hopefully the next episode will have some outcomes because I'm curious to see who winds up hurt in these twisted love triangles.

I think V might be the victim this time. It's weird how they portray V as the good girl but when you think about it, V is the only girl on the show to have kissed all three of the leading male roles. Maybe V isn't so innocent after all.

While I am loving the drama, I have to say, I miss S and Lonely Boy - maybe they'll rekindle now that the teachers out of the picture. Only time will tell.


Kara DioGuardi CAN'T Count

She has SIX words for us: "One of the best performances of the night"

After Adam Lambert sang on "American Idol" tonight, Kara DioGuardi made a statement that has got to be acknowledged immediately.

Okay everybody needs to take two quick seconds and count the words above with me.

I see one . . two . . four . . SIX . . uh oh . . 8 words. That's right, not six but EIGHT words - that is two more than six Kara.

Attention Kara : Learn how to count to ten before you speak on national television.

I just can't believe she said that. I rewound the show like five times, it was shockingly retarded. She can't even blame it on a blond moment - which believe it or not, totally works.

Sorry Kara, that's embarrassing. The only words of wisdom i got for you are - think before you speak.

Who doesn't love money? Frank loves money

Poor Frank - this week's victim of eviction on I Love Money 2.

I don't know about you, but I thought he really might win it this season.

It's normal to root for the underdog - so Frank is not the obvious fan favorite - but on this season, the underdogs are a bunch of wussies. Is there anyone in the world that likes Tailor Made - honestly the nicest way to put it is, he's a LOSER.

I found this interview of Frank "the entertainer" Maresca on vh1 blog. It was worth watching - they touch on topics like karma (which I strongly believe in). 

In the clip, it was hilarious how he compared Prancer to Benedict Arnold. Really - who does that? That comment made him sound much smarter than the show portrayed him, but you got to be pretty dumb to still be stuck in your parents bedroom at 37-years-old. You can really hear the pain in his voice when he says he's still living in his parents basement.

He says in the interview that he "doesn't hate anybody not even Tailor Made" but I'm going to call his bluff on that one because they are the reason he still lives in his parents house. Thanks for the "entertainment" and better luck next time Frank.

Another great save by Tivo

Tivo saves the day again!

In case you were wondering, the absence on my blog was because of my spring break vacation. I had a great vacation but it was hard to be without my shows. 

Television is an escape from your own reality - but so is vacation. 

When you go on vacation, you get away from your everyday life which is exactly what you do when you watch television. Instead of getting away for an hour with Grey's Anatomy, I got away for a week to Miami. It was beautiful, but I missed my shows. 

The character's on the shows become your friends - you know all their deepest secrets and they won't tell yours. I see my television "friends" more often than some of my best friends in life. When you are away from your friends you miss things and you need to catch up on what's going on in their lives.

I am Jewish so I've never experienced a Christmas morning but I imagine it feels something like coming home to a Tivo filled to it's maximum with all your favorite shows. Time to catch up with my friends that I missed so much.

your Big Brother's coming back

Big Brother never gets old. With another great season under the belt, they have begun casting calls for the next season.

I loved Keesha in season 10 but Big Brother 8 was by far my favorite season with Dick and Danielle.

I expect Big Brother 11 to be filled with the same drama, flirtation, manipulation and entertainment that each season has managed to deliver. Can't wait!

Cursing Comcast

I would love to be blogging about one of my favorite shows right now but instead my cable company - Comcast - has decided to mess up once again! 

In my three years of being a loyal costumer of Comcast, I have experienced more problems then I can count. It's ridiculous how out of no where the cable can just stop working. Then when you call Comcast they try and trouble shoot it with you which just makes it even worse! 

Then they try and schedule a meeting with you which never works on your schedule and has you sitting by the door for hours. Then you are lucky if they even show up on time or give you the "courtesy" phone call. 

I am officially fed up with Comcast. I missed all my shows last night and I will be missing all my shows again tonight and Comcast is to blame. 

Its official - Comcast is ruining my life!

Everybody scream it loud - I love TV and I am Proud

I was searching the web when I stumbled upon a quiz to determine if you are addicted to television. 

I recommend everyone takes this quiz and is proud if the results say you're a television addict. 

I just took it and it confirmed that I am a television addict - big surprise! The results page said I have some "serious addiction issues." Listen here buddy, the only one with any issues here is you.

I love television and I admit it. I do not have issues and just because someone likes television does not mean we are going to fall for every infomercial type website thrown at us. 

I am here to tell all you televisions addicts out there - it is okay! You do not have a problem and being addicted to television is NOT bad thing. For everyone out there who wants to help us poor television addicts, all we have to say is - Thank you very much but NO thank you.

Fabulous 'Beer Pong' Molly vs. Sweet, Sincere 'Cheerleader' Melissa

I interviewed a fellow television addict, Sara McIntosh, the creator of "The Bachelor" Facebook group.
The popular group currently has almost 400 members. As an obsessed fan, whose never missed an episode, and with this season's shocking ending, she was not shy about her opinion of the distasteful conclusion.

When did you start "The Bachelor" group and why?
I started this group like right before the season premiere this season (with
Jason). I started it because I know there was a small group of us that would
like to gossip about what happened. The group started out with just my
mother-in-law and me, then a few of our friends and family joined, and now
there's over 100 people! I couldn't believe that!

Whose your favorite girl this season and favorite Bachelor/Bachelorette (past or present) and why?
I loved Stephanie! I think any man would be lucky to have her. Stephanie and
Melissa were my favorites from the start. As far as Bachelor/Bachelorette, I'd
have to say Jason is my favorite. It must be a 'parental' thing - I love seeing
him with Ty and its the first time I felt the Bachelor/Bachelorette was really a
genuine person.

Do you think the show is scripted at all? Do you think they manipulate the viewers by what they show us?
Umm... sometimes I actually do think it is scripted. I don't think a lot of it
is like 'word for word' scripted, but I think that they might tell them what to
do/talk about to make for good TV. Sometimes manipulation can go on such as
trying to make us think one thing, when it's actually something else. Not
necessarily a bad thing though.

Have you heard about this seasons conspiracy theory? If so, how do you feel about it and do you believe it?
If what you mean by the "conspiracy theory" is that he proposes to Melissa,
breaks up, then goes to Molly, I do kind of believe it. It seems like something
is up anyways since there is supposedly a dramatic, intimate ending previewed.
If it is really true - I will NOT be happy! I just really don't care for Molly
and would be upset if he ended up with her :-)

Your opinions on the finale and after the final rose episode?
I can't believe Jason's choice. I wish the show would have ended at 9:00 -
it was perfect! I can't believe he dumped her on TV - I was totally behind
Melissa all the way last night! Every point she had made perfect sense, you
don't just get up and leave every time something feels 'a little different.'
Everyone would be broken up and divorced if that was the case!

He already said goodbye to Molly and he wasn't willing to fight for
Melissa's relationship. Melissa made sense and Jason on the other hand was all
in lala land about "oh i wish i had control over my heart and head' which in my
opinion sounds like crap to me. I don't think Molly is the right choice - I
can't believe he'd want fabulous 'beer pong' Molly over sweet, sincere Melissa.
Molly never even seemed like she was there for the right reasons - it was always
"I want to be here!" as if it was just a competition vs Melissa "I am in love
with you and want to spend my life with you." I feel so bad for Melissa! She
should be the Bachelorette! I am kind of disappointed - I am not sure if I will
be watching future episodes.

You know what really Grinds my Gears . . .

We all know what grinds Peter Griffins gears and now you are all about the hear what really Grinds MY Gears?

1. When Jason Mesnick (The Bachelor) is crying after choosing to break up with Melissa. I don't understand - why are you crying? You made that decision and if you knew deep down in your heart that it was the right decision for you than you wouldn't be crying! Grr.

2. The possibility that the ABC network was behind this whole crazy ending.

3. That a guy (Jason Mesnick) can say "I love you, I want to spend my life with you, I want to make you happy" and then take it all back only WEEKS later. How can you say goodbye to someone that you said all those things to?

4. The fact that Jason didn't even try and talk to her and work through things with her. The second he started having doubts, how could he not talk to her about it and fight and see what they can do to fix it. Just because things are a little different, how could he not want to try if he really loves her and really cared that much about her?

5. That because of my uncontrollable curiosity and Reality Steve, I was NOT in complete shock when I watched the finale of "The Bachelor".

6. The crowd at the "After the Final Rose - Part 2" was cheering when Jason walked in. I just wanted to scream BOOO!!!

7. and finally, that after watching this all go down - I can't even personally give Mr. Mesnick a piece of my mind. There are a lot of things I would like to say to Jason, starting with SHAME ON YOU! So Jason, if you are ever in the mood to hear a fan and outsiders view - you can always find me here.
