About Samantha

I'm Sam, your reality TV expert. When it comes to television my motto is: the trashier, the better. If a show is winning Emmys and making critics swoon, it probably isn't my style. I'll take Kardashians and teen moms over great acting and writing any day of the week.

As you may or may not have heard in the news yesterday, Bruce and Kris Jenner are officially ‘separated’.  I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of confused as to why this is news.  If you’ve been watching this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians you would know that Bruce and Kris already had another house in Malibu for Bruce to stay at on occasion.

Catfish: The TV Show recap: The one with ‘Bow Wow’

Reality Check By
New Picture

The Catfish season is coming to a close, which means the episodes are getting juicier, supposedly.  Although this episode was more ridiculous than juicy.  This episode featured Keyonnah, who believes she is online dating Bow Wow, the rapper/actor of “Like Mike” fame.  Not even Nev can believe this one.  The likelihood of a celebrity not being able to meet someone face to face is very small, but whoever this guy is, he sent Keyonnah 10 grand, so he must have some money.

America’s Next Top Model recap: Filming a cross-dressing commercial

Reality Check By
The Guy Who Gets to Kiss the Girl

This episode picks up after last week’s panel and all the models are annoyed with  Jourdan who has taken to just standing in the main room gawking at her best photo winning picture; which really is a pretty obnoxious thing to do.  Because she won she also gets to control phone time, meaning she gets to divvy up the one hour of phone time between all the contestants and she doesn’t win any new friends by taking over 15 minutes to assure her boyfriend that all the photos being taken are very professional even if they are naked.
