If The Voice Were The Girlfriend

By in Non L Word TV

I wasn’t going to do it, I was not going to get invested in a reality show to find the next great singer. But on a lazy Wednesday I went to primetime on demand, the savior of people who don’t want or forget to DVR things and queued up The Voice

My Love Hate Relationship With Reality TV

By in Non L Word TV

It is well documented here at Grace The Spot that I love reality tv. I do love reality tv. What I don’t love are reality tv celebrities. I love the The Amazing Race, and Survivor, and Big Brother but I consider them more game shows that bring a level of celebrity that doesn’t come from being on Let’s Make a Deal or The Price is Right.

The TV show from across the pond that everyone is talking about: Lip Service!

By in Non L Word TV

As a native Scot, I had to restrain my excitement when I realized the second televised contemporary lesbian drama series in the world is set in Glasgow, a few mere miles from my birthplace. As you can probably guess, I am following the show religiously and possibly investing a little too much in the characters (stop yelling at the TV, Grace Maxwell, they can’t hear you)…

Reality TV = Human Zoo

By in Non L Word TV

It has been well documented that I am a reality tv fanatic. It finally came to me why I love reality tv so much; it is like going to a human zoo. Follow along and I will take you on a tour of our National Zoo, repurposed to house the different shows across the reality spectrum currently running on just about every channel on tv.

With Autotune, Anyone Can Be A Star, Even A Real Housewife – Or Three!

By in Awkward, Music, Non L Word TV, Vacuous bitches

One reason why The Real L Word floundered and The Real Housewives franchise caught on like swine flu is because the cast members of the The Real Housewives are so absurd and larger than life that they have become mythological creatures. They have transcended the boundary between “human being” and “vessel through which WTF flows.”

Joy Behar pwns Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View

By in Non L Word TV, Vacuous bitches

We all know Elisabeth Hasselbeck is just one echelon above Jersey Shore’s Snooki in the “playing with a full deck” department, so we’re not going to talk about her. Instead, we’re going to give Joy Behar a round of applause for saying something intelligent about women coming out later in life.

Fantasy Television Indulgence: Celesbian Wipeout

By in Mindless chatter, Non L Word TV

As much as I enjoy watching people (who should probably call the pharmacy to see if their medication has been refilled), be repeatedly knocked silly by the Wipeout obstacle course, one thing would make me happier: Celesbian Wannabe Wipeout. I am talking about the reality celesbians like the ones currently demonstrating to all of America what lesbians are REALLY like.

Before Dana Fairbanks…

By in Non L Word TV

Ok GTS readers, I leave it to you to deconstruct TV women of the past. Which of the Eight is Enough sisters was gay? Which TV woman of the past do you wish were gay and could climb through your TV set? (And, please, we ALL know Jo from The Facts of Life was gay.)

Betty White calls Amy Poehler’s character a lesbian and declares she would “lez it up 24 hours”

By in Non L Word TV

What’s hotter than the Olympic gold medal winning beach volleyball dream team Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh? Ok, pretty much nothing. But I think SNL‘s former dream team of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey runs a close second. This past Saturday, the SNL dream team returned, which would have already been extra hot, but last Saturday was also the day our dreams came true. Betty White hosted SNL, which blew the mercury out of the thermometer.
