Remember Jenna Talackova, the transgender Miss Universe contestant who successfully sued Donald Trump for the right to compete in Miss Universe Canada? As it turns out, she was just getting started. Riding the momentum of all those TV appearances, Ms. Talackova has just signed on to do a pilot season of a reality show for E! Canada, which will be called Brave New Girl. More

Is it kind of absolutely insane to anybody else that two people who met on a reality show are still together ten years down the road? And that we still have this type of show going?
We are all awful, and so, so responsible. More

Are you a little jealous that a new jewelry designer just made a cool million? In a recession? No? That’s really well adjusted of you. By the way, she’s six. Toddlers and Tiaras star Isabella Barrett is six years old and she just made a million dollars, and you are failing at life. More
It’s been four months since the taping of this season of The Bachelor wrapped.
And on Friday night in a studio in Hollywood, Sean Lowe and 18 of his (rejected) women reunited to tape The Bachelor: Women Tell All episode, airing March 4 on ABC (8 p.m.).
“We should be out in 8 to 10 hours, if we’re lucky,” joked host Chris Harrison to the studio audience.
“Chris Harrison sleeps on a bed of human skin.”
Well, how many children have you managed to father? Ah, I see. And that’s why you don’t have your own show. More
Ryan Lochte has been busy.
After the Olympics, he’s done just about everything a typical male celebrity does: he partied in Vegas, got tight with a model, created an undeserved fashion line, touched a dragon and lived, was hella gross…now, he just has one stupid adventure left. More
Rmember when magazine covers didn’t look like various oil paintings fashioned into a crude collage? More
For the next nine or so months, there will be two very, very popular babies in the news. One will belong to actual royalty for whom I often feel a bit sorry for since the woman can’t drink water without being on the cover of a tabloid, whereas the other will belong to two people who have counteracted my acid reflux medication numerous times both separately and together. But apparently, the latter will not actually suck nearly as much as we all may imagine. More
Reality television has weirdly pervaded TheGloss this week, what with the Today Show refraining from observing 9/11 and instead opting to let Kris Jenner talk about her breast implants or Jersey Shore’s Sammi Sweetheart designing a collection of sweatpants. This has led to a lot of office conversation about reality television personalities and how objectionable we find them. But can we actually parse out why? Well, besides Kim Kardashian comparing her publicity stunt marriage to pediatric cancer… More
You wanna be on top? You’re going to have to sacrifice any articulation in your legs. Plus, your immortal soul (Tyra’s gotta eat). More
I swear, I almost never use the word misogynistic.
It’s partly because I don’t believe in a culture where we go around feeling victimized, and partly because I think it’s a term that gets wildly overused. Sometimes people are nasty to people just because they’re people, not because they’re women. By “sometimes” I mean “most of the time.”
