Picture THIS!

I’m no stranger to paparazzi’s. I don’t mind them….most of the time. I’ve certainly had my fair share of run ins with them…some fun, some not so cool. Years ago I was chased by a car through five suburbs, my young son strapped in the back, the car behind us racing through red lights to…

Real Housewife or NOT Real Housewife?

Well, it seems the Real Housewives of New York has got off to a rocky start with war raging between Aviva Drescher  and Carole Radizwill  disagreeing over what seems the dumbest argument in history – who may or may not have had a ghostwriter and who may or may not be “allowed” to write a…

The Perfect Selfie

Caught up with RealityWanted TV Award nominee Kyle Kleiboeker; triple threat, Broadway star and more recently reality TV talent from USA Network’s Summer Camp. While waiting for my missing in action cameraman, Kyle introduced me to The Selfie Song and even went so far as to demonstrate how to do the perfect Selfie. Well, suffice…

Amazing Race – fish jumping thru hoops

  I’ve always loved this show – it has all the fishbowl qualities a good reality show needs to reinvent itself season after season: great locations, Type A personalities and enough stress to see the monster come out of everyone even if for just a few seconds.

Can somebody spell S.U.R.V.I.V.O.R?

Of course this is based on the Hollywood concept of “beauty” because of course there is not a single “beautiful” size 10 or bigger amongst them. In fact, there’s…

Foot in mouth disease a modern epidemic

I often find it amazing that people believe everything they see on TV – even in Reality TV. It was no surprise to me when I discovered the Duck Dynasty family had once been a clean cut, well groomed, white collar wearing, facial hairless set of family men who happened to make a lot of…

The battle beyond depression

Okay, well, I’ve been watching all of Australia mourn Charlotte Dawson and I’ve been waiting for someone, anyone, just one person, to say what must be said. I actually thought Mia Freedman may have brought it up – she has a pretty good moral compass, she usually steers the ship in the right direction but…

‘Biggest Loser’ insider reveals weight loss horror stories from the set

Check out my interview with the fabulous Sean McAllister on Fox5News. ‘Biggest Loser’ insider reveals weight loss horror stories from the set.

Real Life Hunger Games

The world is finally asking if The Biggest Loser is safe for the contestants competing in the Real Life Hunger Games, hoping to win a quarter of a million dollars, battling some who are literally willing to put their bodies on the line to do so. Why all the uproar now, 15 seasons in? Because…

Chubby Chasers – the good, the bad and the ugly

The Golden Globes were just a few days ago and even before Joan River and her Sloane Rangers pull everyone apart and call them fat, the nasty twitter trolls went to town on Gabourey Sidibe.          I instantly felt sorry for her and then moments later was relieved to see she handled…
