We’re not stupid. We know that reality TV distorts reality to tell good stories. Please, I think VH1 alone has dedicated at least three days worth of Awesomely Bad programming to the matter. We get it, and we tolerate it. However. Today. Today I hit my breaking point.
If you’ve been watching MTV’s new reality show, There and Back about former boy-band member Ashley Parker Angel’s struggle to reclaim musical success. In the past few episodes, Ashley has had to ask his mother in law, his record label and even his neighbors for money to pay the rent.
What the so-called reality show is not exposing is the real reason why Ashley’s in the hole. In last night’s episode, every room in Ashley’s house-even the backyard- was decorated in pillar candles. That’s $15 a pop at pottery barn. I suggest Ashley cuts back on his candle habit before it burns him even more

Another unforgettable moment from today’s Tony Danza Show
"Leprosy" is number 11 on Yahoo!’s "Movers" list. Not a good day to be an ex-leper.
For the first time in the 60-year-history of Mexico City’s bullfighting arena, a bull leapt into the stands and charged after onlookers. For those of you keeping score at home, that now makes it Matadors: 1,257 – Bulls: 1.
Watch the video here, and be thankful that the most interactive show you’ve ever been a part of was Shrek 4-D at Universal Studios.
