The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

Elvis has left the building. Not as quickly as we wanted him to, but still. Here's the worst of the worst from reality TV this past week, but who was the biggest loser of them all?

Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: It Ain't Just A Blur Song Anymore

Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: It Ain't Just A Blur Song Anymore Like any good liberal arts college graduate, I've long been privy to the many advantages of having a gay boyfriend. I don't mean a guy that you're actually dating who turns out to prefer the pole to the hole. I'm talking about a partner in crime, that rare breed of man who's much happier to peruse the galleries of an exhibit featuring the work of the Wiener Werkestatte and then grab a leisurely brunch than to down a case of Natty Ice and spend the day watching football. A man who will answer you honestly when you ask if your ass looks fat in these jeans, who knows the difference between Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen, who always smells good, has eyebrows that are better manicured than yours and will eagerly share and listen to details of various romantic escapades with nary an eye roll or judgment as to your promiscuity. The gay boyfriend is a necessary part of any sophisticated woman's entourage, an accessory less expensive than a child or a toy poodle and infinitely more stylish, though possibly more high maintenance. A best gay is a status symbol for a certain caliber of upwardly mobile female, and as such, it would make sense that this storied relationship between a woman and her gay is the topic of an upcoming Bravo reality show, tentatively titled Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys.

Glam God Casts a Pall on the House of Me

<i>Glam God</i> Casts a Pall on the House of Me Did you guys know that South Bend, Indiana is the style capital of the world? I'd never have guessed it growing up there, but now that I think about it, I guess it makes some sense. Two out of two stars of upcoming stylist-related reality shows are from there: Anne Slowey, fashion director of Elle Magazine and Miranda Priestley stand-in in the upcoming Devil Wears Prada-themed show Stylista , hails from said burg, as does Vivica A. Fox, she of the identically-themed VH1 show Glam God With Vivica A. Fox. It is true that despite the highest strip-mall per capita density I've ever encountered in my not at all scientific surveying of such things, South Bend does boast a handful of stylish folks with a genuine flair for fashion and an eye for creativity. This wholly includes -- and I'm not at all biased here people -- me and my girlfriends. And my mom, who rocked those louvered Kanye West sunglasses before every hip hop artist from here to Dubai got grabby with them. The rest of the town, from what I can tell, is happy to offer itself up to a rather limited array of designers that spans from the Gap to Dress Barn, with some Wet Seal thrown in for the under-fifty set (plenty of soccer moms think it's really cute to dress up like mall rat Lolitas but once they hit the big 5-0 they beggar off. Even they have standards to uphold!).

Time to Face Reality, Emmys

Time to Face Reality, Emmys

Apparently, this year being the first year that reality show hosts are eligible for Emmy awards isn't good enough for some people. DHD has reported that, according to a "reliable source," the hosts of this year's Emmy awards ceremony will be not one, not two, not three, not six, but all five of the nominees in the Reality Host category. So if you usually watch the show to escape reality TV (despite the fact that it... is... reality TV), you're S.O.L. But if you love reality TV and want to have a million of its babies live on a major network during primetime, you are in luck.

Where Is The Christian Siriano of P-Run 5?

Where Is The Christian Siriano of P-Run 5? Ohhh y'all! Project Runway season five premieres tomorrow on Bravo! I don't even know if I'm ready yet! Like, really. After watching some of the clips we have up on TWOP featuring the new cast, I can't help but think this season's hopefuls are a little . . . bland. Like how the majority of them answer the question "Who's the best-dressed person on TV?" with the brown-nosiest reply ever: "Heidi!" And cop to "guilty pleasures" involving, um, watching Top Chef. As Mindy points out, "that's not a guilty pleasure, 'tardos." That's called damned fine television. So far my favorite is Kenley because she wears a hat and says she loves the aesthetic of Blair from Gossip Girl and, honestly, reminds me a lot of last season's Kit. Otherwise it's sort of yawnsville as far as I can tell. No Christian Sirianos in this bunch. (See clip below to relive and revel in his greatness.) But I think I'm always reticent to let go of the ghosts of P-Runs past on the eve of a new one... until I start getting sucked in to the drama and it becomes my life again.
