Tonsil Hockey Gone Wrong: The Most Cringe-Worthy On-Screen Kisses


Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day week, so it’s only fitting we address that smoochy-smooch behavior we all love. Now, kissing is a personalized act. Everyone has a trademark technique – be it a unique pout, a nibble, or maybe a full-on bite for you vampires out there. But no matter what your style of choice, we all know the cardinal rule – no sloppy, saliva heavy-snogging. It just isn’t done. Well, it is done, but it’s not encouraged. This brings me to my next point: horrifying kisses. We’ve all been there, we’ve all had them, and we’ve all hated them. Nonetheless, they make for great stories – and it just so happens, they make for great TV. Below is a list of the Most Awkward On-Screen Kisses We’ve Ever Seen. So go grab some Chapstick, a tissue box for when you cry of laughter, and see if you agree with our selection. Read more…

Evil Pageant Queens! Dance School Sadists! The 10 Worst Reality Villains of 2013

We don’t watch reality shows for the sweet characters. The do-gooders, the faithful wives, the lifelong friends who don’t leap across tables to rip each other’s throats out. No, it’s all about the villains!  Now, it’s a reality show standard to have a wild card (or two) on each show. Hair-pulling, backstabbing, boyfriend-stealing, tacky tantrums, blatant bullying…this is what the genre is made of!

And the best villains know that the shows depend on them. If they really channel their inner lunatic, these characters can land endorsement deals, book contracts, or, like Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes (a reformed villain), they can even score a role on a legit scripted show — hello, Glee.

In 2013, the reality genre experienced a villain boom. Dance Mom’s Abby Lee Miller was like a witch out of a Grimm’s fairy tale, cackling as she tortured the hell out of her dance school students. Love & Hip Hop’s Peter Gunz seemed cool enough, but then we discovered his schizophrenic love life — five babymamas, a secret wife and a girlfriend! Here, we salute the craziest reality cast members of the year.
