Feed Your Gypsy Obsession with TLC's "Gypsy Sisters"

Okay, we'll admit it...we have a bit of an obsession for what most would consider to be really bad reality TV. Case in point, we love:

  • Teen Mom 2
  • Buckwild
  • Dance Moms
  • Shahs of Sunset
  • My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding

We actually squealed with delight when TLC came out with My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding  because we were morbidly curious as to what goes on in Gypsy culture. Literally, these girls dream of turning 15, getting married... and then spending the rest of their lives playing housewife in a mobile home?


Just look at the insanity and tell us how you could not watch something like this:

Not sold on it yet? That's cool. Cause sometimes things like this go down:

So imagine our DELIGHT when we heard TLC was giving Mellie (that's the shrimp-y one in the video, flailing around and putting up a pretty decent fight) and her family their own show called Gypsy Sisters.

We were about this happy

We were about this happy

Guys, it's gonna be legen-wait for it-dary! Mellie herself is one chicken nugget short of a Happy Meal, so we can only get more excited that her family is getting in on the crazy action too. Get excited by checking out this clip from this Sunday's premiere of Gypsy Sisters.

Sterling Archer: Best TV Secret Agent Ever

Are you watching the best ever TV spy that is out there today, AKA Sterling Archer?


FX's Archer has it all: sex, espionage, money, humor and lots and lots of alcohol. Archer himself works for ISIS, a spy agency run by his mother, along side his ex-girlfriend (who, OMG, is voiced by Aisha Tyler!!!) and the rest of the ISIS employees.

It's so hard to have a favorite character in this show, because the characters are all so self-absorbed that it makes for ridiculously good fun. For instance, there's Krieger, the possibly mad scientist of ISIS and Cheryl/Carol, secretary to Archer's mom who on a whim changes her name to fit her new personality (all of which are cray-cray.)

What makes Archer's character (pro tip: his code name "Duchess" is after his mother's beloved passed away pup) so delightful is that he is a true man-child. You know the type (ugh, some of you might be dating one,) a 13 year old stuck in a grown man's body, still thinking it's funny to end everything with "That's what she said!" and thinking they're generally awesome? That's Archer.

Every Batman needs their Alfred, and Archer gets his in the form of faithful Woodhouse, his butler who pretty much raised him because his mother was too busy being a drunken whore. I'm paraphrasing here.

Poor Woodhouse

Poor Woodhouse

Another great thing about Archer is that no matter how dire the situation gets (read as: no matter how many times Archer has gone and seriously messed things up,) our man still comes out on top. He's one of those obnoxious types that will say "I meant for that to happen," but you're still kind of happy that things worked out for the jerk anyway.

Want more reasons why Archer is our all time favorite TV spy right now? Peep this "Ask Archer" segment and decide for yourself.

Lohan & Bynes: Messes Together

So Lindsay Lohan was recently spotted going out shopping. Pretty normal, besides the fact that she stepped out of her car and ran errands SHOE-LESS (What?!). Courtesy of our friends over at E!:


I mean, we all know that Lilo is trying to get back on track, but girlfriend, clean up already!

Meanwhile, Amanda Bynes' retirement seems to have brought her to follow L.L's footsteps. The latest about the girl is that she has just become homeless due to her non-stop marijuana consumption.

Her landlord pointed that her apartment emanated smoke "morning, noon, and night" and threatened her with an eviction if she didn't leave her apartment in NYC. I bet she didn't need anyone to show her the way out of the door, considering all the legal charges she's currently facing.

TMZ caught Bynes smoking the reefer and driving. That's safe, right?

Lindsay has been on reckless mode for far too long. Now, Bynes seems to be playing catch up and can't be out of the spotlights for the crazy stories about partying and doing drugs.

It could have been a very happy friendship in which both would hold hands and hop around from party to party, from conviction to conviction. Except, Amanda openly declares her hate towards Lilo.

After Bynes' reckless driving accusation, Lindsay Lohan tweeted "Why did I get put in jail and a Nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Obviously, Amanda didn't like it and has been referring to Lilo as "that b**** Lohan" since then.

The thing is, all the former children stars want is to continue their bizarre behavior without anyone annoying them, and of course, without having to go to court for their mindless actions. So of course they will keep up the “who-should-be-in-jail” pushing game, because what washed up celeb doesn't love attention?

It’s perfect, this way one can take a breather between court dates, while the other gets all the gossip industries blasting. 

Mom and dad once said, “sharing is caring.” These two are doing a great job at sharing the Hall of Shame.

So happy, toogeetherrrrrr!

Why You Should Watch "The Following"

Fox's The Following isn't your typical serial killer story. Sure, we've seen this setup before: A former FBI agent whose life was pretty much ruined by his successful pursuit of  a charismatic serial killer is brought back into the field because said serial killer is loose and wrecking havoc again. It doesn't hurt that our FBI agent (played by Kevin Bacon) is an alcoholic, because that's never been done before...

No, what makes this unique is that the serial killer, Joe Carroll (played by James Purefoy) let's himself get caught the second time around, because NO BIG DEAL, he's made lots of friends when he was locked up before who will now do the killing for him.

Unlike serial killer shows/movies where you know who it is you're looking for, the show plays off of the fact that just about ANYBODY could be part of Carroll's following.

I mean, look at one of their posters! This show is serious, y'all.


She's possibly a killer, but probably not a grammar teacher, because that deserves a question mark at the end. Duh.

BONUS: You've got more actors and actresses to play "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon" with!


Trivia Question: How long would it take to cook a piece of bacon at 6 degrees Fahrenheit?

Answer: Wow, are you really thinking of an answer? Geeeeeeze...

What gives the show more of a creep factor is that after a successful kill, the followers leave a message that is always similar to "This is for you, Ryan" (Ryan being Bacon's character.) It looks like Carroll is a liiiiiiiiitle pissed off that Ryan slept with his ex-wife, but it's not clear if this is his main motivation.

Double creep factor? Carroll is having his following kill people like his boss at the university he worked out who wouldn't give him tenure.  It kind of makes you stop and think about the time you were rude to the server at McDonald's, ya know? They might be plotting to make you into the next Happy Meal.

But what is that burger made out of?
