It's been a month or so since I posted one of these, so I figure I'm due! :) There's some gooooooooood stuff that's been happening and I just HAVE to dish!!!

A few weeks ago, it was bad for my favorites.... First off, Steve Gutenberg got kicked off Dancing with the Stars. Then the next night, Claire got eliminated on Top Model. And THEN, Amie got voted out on Survivor. GAH! And I bet THAT decision is coming back to haunt some people!!!

There's some new shows out that are good. And an old favorite is back. :) So let's get started.... ;)

Dancing with the Stars got sad for me when the Gut was kicked off before Adam Carolla. I didn't find Adam offensive, but he wasn't a good dancer, so he didn't deserve to stay over the Gut. Finally, though, HE went. But then it got bad... Priscilla went. And then MARLEE went. That just made me so sad. I loved Marlee and thought she was such an inspiration. It's just sad that she had two bad weeks in a row. I think had she gotten back to ballroom dances, she would have been back on top. :( I am so happy she was on the show. She's definitely a role model for anyone who is struggling out there. My favorite is Marissa, I think she's adorable and so fun. I also like Jason. Actually, I like most of the rest of them, except Cristian. And something about Mario bothers me, but he is a good dancer. So if he won, I'd be disappointed that my favorite didn't, but it'd be okay. Kristi, though, is the front runner. She's such a joy to watch, because she's so good! There are, of course, some people who think that because she was a figure skater she has an unfair advantage, but I don't agree with that. Yeah, if she'd been an ICE DANCER, then it'd be unfair, but she wasn't. So Kristi shouldn't be on the show because she has a good work ethic? I also don't think Derek and Shannon are horrible people because he spoke out of frustration this past week. Half the people online think he was out of like and insulting toward the other dancers. I completely disagree. He was upset because the judges were scoring inconsistantly. It's not fair to blast Shannon for something, but then they're giving out nines and tens to people that are stumbling or not technically deserving of the scores. Could he have been more tactful? Sure. But he's human and I happen to agree with him. I think Shannon has a lot of talent and I can't wait to see what she does this next week. :)

Top Model has been crazy. I think they were nuts to kick Claire off, but they finally rectified that this past week. Seriously, though, she was FIERCE! But, of course, TyTy and co can't let a baby momma win! What I can't understand is why Lauren NEVER got much crap for her failure to improve her walk. In the past, a girl with a walk as atrocious as hers would have been lamblasted! And they were just sort of ho-hum about it. What the hell? And she NEVER practiced. So I'm glad she finally was eliminated. I don't think she was Cover Girl material. She can take some great pictures, but she wasn't, overall, the best all-around model. Plus she cussed during the comercial!!! She dropped the F-bomb! Of the girls left, I think Dom, Anya or Kata deserve to win. Fatima is okay, she's gotten better. Whitney is a right bitch and it'd bug me to high heaven if SHE won. She's pretty, but she's a terrible person on the inside. Cover Girls are supposed to be sweet and not back-stabbing.

Survivor has been one blind-side after another this season. I do think it's hilarious that Penner was right and now it's coming back to haunt people that they didn't listen to him! He told them all that Parvati was manipulative! And she IS!!! I bet he's sitting at home laughing his ass off! I loved Ozzy's fave when he found out during tribal that Parv is the one that spearheaded his ousting. I wish those idiots would have gotten together to get her back, but I guess they felt like "Oh, she has the numbers, so we can't do anything." But seriously... Does Amanda REALLY think that Parv is taking HER to the final?! No! Because of all of the women left, Amanda would win hands down. Amanda has, once again, trusted the wrong alliance. I do think that it is hiLARious that they did the same thing two weeks in a row, though.

The Real World is back and this time they're in Hollywood. MTV is doing the show in hour long episodes, so there will be less of them. So far, I like Joey and Brianna. I don't know if I like Greg and Dave or not.... I do NOT like Sarah, Kimberly or Will. UGH. I do think that Greg has been hurt really badly in his past, so that is why he is so aloof. I've seen signs that deep down he is a good person. I hope that comes out more. I really like Joey and I hope he can overcome his problems and get back to being the sweetheart he obviously is. And I think he and Bri would be cute together. She needs something to help her rise out of the life she's got in Philly. Poor girl. I think Kim is ignorant and needs to grow up. She's got the same problem the Miz had. Alas, there is not Coral to straighten her ass out... Yet? ;) Maybe on a future challenge.... I think Will is just a douche. And Sarah is... immature maybe? Who knows. It's good though. :)

The BIGGEST YAY about Reality TV is that Deadliest CATCH is BACK!!! :) I'm so excited that the Catch is back! My favorite guys, Johnathan, Andy and the rest of the Time Bandit crew, have been keeping me smiling. :) That boat is run by a well-oiled team in a relaxed atomosphere and I think it'd be the best boat to work on. I love them! They did the funniest thing! One of the other boat captains, Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie, had been looking for a new truck. So Johnathan found this torn up king cab truck and took it out with them. They found one of Phil's crab pots and attached the truck to it. It was so hilarious when they pulled that truck up!!! You gotta love awesome guys like that. If you've never seen the Catch, check it out! It's a very cool show!!! It airs on the Discovery Channel on Tuesday nights. Also, I think the episodes are available online....

Fit Club ends this week. I'm eager to see the before and afters on the gang. What I can't figure out, though, is whether Erin or Dustin is the biggest whack job. Seriously, Erin is a total kookpot. And she's a disappointment. I'd like to know what her deal was... I love Toccara and think she is so amazing. Now SHE should have been the first Plus sized girl to win Top Model. Anyway, she's still FIERCE and she's hot and she's so cool. And tough! Good Lord, the girl is tough. A couple weeks ago they had some self defense instruction or something and she body slammed a dude! That's just... wow! Dustin still has the drama-llama-ding-dong going on, but at least he's following the diet this time and meeting his goals. But every time he feels a little tired, he punks out on the workout. And then he'll call his lawyer. Or his manager/girlfriend.... "Harvey called me names." "Harvey threatened me." By offering to PAY a professional wrestler to slam Dustin?!? How is that a felony threat Dustin? Sheesh. What a big old goober! I will say that all of the "Second Chancers" have been blowing the rookies out of the Water. Tina and Willie? I wish I had their dedication. Hell, if I could just work out like those two, I'd be happy. The last thing I want to say about the show is that Dunkleman is a tool. He is NOT funny. He has his occasional moments, but for the most part, dude is just... a loser.

MTV has started a great new show, called Rock the Cradle. It's a contest between the musically talented children of MTV "icons" for money and, I think, a recording contract. They started out with 9 people - Jesse Money (daughter of Eddie Money), A'keiba Burrell-Hammer (daughter of MC Hammer), Lil B'Sure (son of Al B'Sure), Landon Brown (son of Bobby Brown), Jesse Blaze Snider (son of Dee Snider from Twisted Sister), Chloe Lattanzi (daughter of Olivia Newton John), Lucy Walsh (daughter of Joe Walsh), Lara Johnston (daughter of Doobie Brother Tom Johnston) and Crosby Loggins (son of Kenny Loggins). So far, Jesse M (who has the BEST ROCK voice of the girls), A'keiba, Landon (who was such a gentleman) and Lil B have been eliminated. Next week, two of the 5 that are left are gone. I've been voting for Lara and Crosby. I love them both. I think Lara has, overall, the best voice of the girls. But it is more of a pop/R&B voice. Crosby is the most talented all-around. Lucy's good, too. Jesse S is a good performer, he can really work the stage and please the crowd, but his singing voice isn't that great and he's a total ass. He thinks he's being honest. I think he's just being rude. Chloe is okay. Her voice is different and interesting. But it's not really suited to Rock, in my opinion. Her pitch is great, but her tone is... strange. It's weird to listen to. I think Crosby or Lucy would be the best winners. You can see the full episodes and vote at rockthecradle.mtv.com if you're interested. I know Crosby and Lara have myspaces, the rest probably do, too.

Trading Spaces is over for the season. The other week, though, Hildi actually did a GREAT room. I loved the walls she did. It was this beautiful wood set out in diamonds. GORGEOUS! And then last week, DOUG compromised. Stop the presses, somebody call Ripley! ;) Heh. I love that the show came back. I can't wait for the new season.

And I gotta say something about all these "love" shows that are on. Like Flavor Flav, Brett Michaels, Tila Tequila. Give it UP. None of these people are interested in finding LOVE. I think they're all a bunch of tools and so are the "contestants" on the show. Really, if they didn't find love the first time, they're probably not going to. And what kind of idiot would subject themselves to such degradation? Oh, right, because the BACHELOR is such a hit... Uhm... At least it's a new person each time, not the same loser over and over again...

Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go get in some last minute votes for Lara and Lucy. :)

I. Loooooooooove. Real World Hollywood so far! Joey is by far my favorite. I hope he doesn't fall back into his old ways with the pressure of drinking and stuff.

Seriously. I really hope Joey can rise above it all. He seems like such a down-to-earth, great guy.
