According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Vick, the former NFL player convicted for his part in a dogfighting ring, is talking to TV producers about a 'proposed docu-series would follow Vick starting July 20, the day of his scheduled release from federal custody, and show him trying to 'make amends for his past.'' And it would also make him about $600,000 richer, according to what his attorneys told the judge presiding over Vick's bankruptcy hearing. THR ... Read More
This Wednesday, TVLand is set to begin airing it's new reality series, 'The Cougar,' hosted by Vivica A. Fox and featuring someone in their 40s who's looking for a lover among people in their twenties. I have only one question: hasn't this been done before? ;Strangely enough, on the preview video for TV Land's show, you see the guys talking about why they like 'older women,' (like it's a fetish). I've never seen them ask that question of the contestants ... Read More
But until the day that the land of my forebearers decides that oppression is not an integral part of culture and heritage, I offer this video to Bust readers as a token of my faith in Texas.This song was originally written by Ned Sublette 1981, since then it has been covered by Pansy Division and of course, Willie Nelson! And yes, that is Burt Reynolds sitting next to Willie. Also, any reason to see cowboys waltzing with cowboys is a good reason. -Emma ... Read More
Then you've most likely been subjected to those outrageously annoying 'Weekender' NY Times ads. There is simply no hiding from them - they are as ubiquitous in this city as rats. My BF and I are particularly incensed by the Liz Phair-like 'So, the deal is...'girl. Now, finally, some folks have made a spot-on parody of it, and I can't stop watching it. It's like a cool summer shower, washing away the greasy buildup of all these years of watching the irritating ... Read More
Did somebody say horrifying television? Check out the upcoming show 'More to Love.' Fox's new reality show will be more or less in the vein of The Bachelor, but with one key difference: fat people (GASP) Or, I'm sorry, not fat . . . regular people as the execs keep saying. Producer Mike Fleiss says he wants 'to send the message that you can be the size you are and still be lovable.' Oh, well I guess now that Fox says my fat ass is lovable I suppose I can hold my ...

Who knew Ru still had it? RuPaul, that is. While the MAC spokesperson/dragqueen extraordinaire has been low key, RuPaul has without a doubt, emerged by reviving reality competition shows by adding her flair and fabulousness to pop culture once again, by introducing 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' on the Logo network. RuPaul's Drag Race strangely (yet not surprisingly) rings a bit of familiarity with similarities to 'America's Next Top Model, down to Tyra Banks' weave. But ... Read More
Last night this commercial came on and it sort of left me with my jaw hanging open.It should be a funny, obvious joke ad, like the ones for guys (Axe) where they are clearly making a pun, but it was done in a subtle lady like way, with vaguley sexy, wine bar electronic background music. Bleh, it takes the fun out of the pubes=trimming the hedges joke, guys! While I am all for making fun of girls that are all serious about trimming their pubes into landing ... Read More
Remember this album?Kathleen Hanna's side project in between Bikini Kill and Le Tigre totally ruled my high school world. My favorite track was totally 'Stay Monkey' I still think of it every time I eat cold coconut ice cream. Re-listen to the entire album ... Read More
This past week, I got to do one of the most fun things ever: Teach Mo Rocca to knit. Mo got himself into some hot water with the knitting community a few weeks ago (yes, there is such a thing as a 'knitting community,') when he made the horrifying 'joke' on NPR's Wait Wait..Don't Tell Me that 'I hate handknit sweaters. Handknit sweaters are always itchy.' The remark caused an uproar on knitting blogs and community sites, and Mo heard all about it. So, on the ... Read More
Everyone has been all over the Chris Brown-Rihanna beating controversy (c'mon, we've all seen the TMZ photo of her face post-beating by now...) that the Big-O has stepped in, and you KNOW it's somethin' serious when Oprah lays it down to ya. (Let's not forgot how she invited author James Frey back just to call him out for lying to her face on her show!) I mean, who wasn't shocked to see Rihanna and Chris Brown back together after what seemed like a hot ... Read More
