Another Girl Next Door gets a spin-off

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 15th 2010 4:30PM
The Girls Next DoorHolly Madison, one of the Playboy playmates from the series The Girls Next Door, will be getting her own reality series on E! called Holly's World. The show will follow her around as she does her daily routine and works in Las Vegas in her topless revue titled Peepshow. She plays Little Bo Peep. Get it? It's one of those double entendre things.

Since other playmates from the show have gotten their own successful spin-offs (Kendra), it makes sense that other such programs would, ahem, "arise" given the relatively low cost to produce and the extreme willingness of the women to expose themselves both literally and figuratively. It makes me wonder why such a concept hasn't made it to HBO or Showtime where certain body parts are less likely to be blurred.

Perhaps NBC could have solved it's problems by giving Holly or one of the other girls the 11:35 timeslot on NBC and get rid of Jay as well as Conan? Okay, maybe that's not such a good idea.

Best TV of the '00s: Trashy Reality

by Michael Pascua, posted Jan 1st 2010 2:02PM
The season five cast of The Surreal LifeMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the cheesiest in reality from the decade. And there was a lot of cheesy going around.

The turn of the millennium was the point when television networks were watching the rise of Survivor, The Amazing Race, and American Idol and thought, "I can do that!" What they didn't realize was that to maintain a high quality level, they still needed a big budget.

Instead of monetary prizes, networks turned to things like love, the experience, and the belief of fifteen minutes of fame to entice people to participate. Slowly with the help of networks like Fox, E!, and VH1, reality shows got more classless and turned trashy. Like a car accident, viewers can't stop watching. The decade has provided a countless number of trashy reality shows and here is TV Squad's favorites of the decade.

The Girls Next Door continues without the girls, but they're not gone either

Kendra WilkinsonBridget Marquardt is already traveling the world showing us Bridget's Sexiest Beaches on the Travel Channel. Now it's Kendra Wilkinson's turn. Easily the most annoying of The Girls Next Door, Kendra's new E! show will premiere this fall. Now that all the girls have left the mansion, it's time to see what's next for them. And for Kendra, who was only 18 when the show premiered, it's about time she learned how to be an adult who isn't pampered by the staff at the Playboy Mansion.

And that's just what her show, cleverly called Kendra, will do as she prepares for her wedding next month. My wife is a fanatic for The Girls Next Door, so I've seen more than my fair share of them, and the show is actually much sweeter than you'd expect. One of my questions was what they would do with it now that the girls have left the nest. Apparently, the show will continue and presumably feature Hef's new girlfriends, the twins (not those twins, though I'm sure they're featured as well; they really are twins!).

Dancing with the Stars: Week 4 Results

Dancing with the Stars - Week 4 Results(S08E07) – "I'm not scared of the double elimination or rattlesnakes" – Ty

I was happy aboutone thing last night that I forgot to mention: all the music fit. I dreaded that this week would have more obscene tango music (Star Wars Tango?) and six performances of the Lindy Hop set to Christina Aguilera's "Candyman," but the classics fit. Speaking of no bad music, the guest performers would have been given a harsh critique by Simon Cowell if they were on American Idol.

There was no dance-off, which is a shame because I'd love to have seen what Holly's performance would look like without the mistakes. The clip recap did reveal how badly Holly slipped off of the chair. Since it was close up last night, we only got to see her face go "oops." She basically fell off the chair. More analysis after the jump.

Dancing With the Stars: Week 4

Dancing With the Stars - Week 4(S08E06) "The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth" – The Woz

Tonight was the breakout night where the leaders all blasted past everyone else. Three of the last week's top four contestants in the front all received 10's. I'm a little nervous for Ty and Chuck now, and although I like both of them, if the four in the front progress the way they are, then the rest of the pack will slowly be eliminated.

This week introduces new dances in hopes that they will reinvigorate the competition and take people out of their comfort zones. The double elimination is looming and the contestants tried their best to be safe. We start the night with another trip on the stairs with Karina, and that isn't the only thing that proves this show is live. Len accidentally uses the term "Jitterbug" instead of "Lindy Hop," but quickly recovers. Also, throughout the whole show, Samantha goes through puberty. More analysis after the break.

Dancing with the Stars celebrity updates

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 27th 2009 5:18PM
Holly MadisonOther than injuries plaguing most of the contestants, there are a few issues still making the celebrity dancing competition complicated on Dancing with the Stars. I love the fact that Denise is confused that she was eliminated. It's not like she was even top tier of dancers (Shawn, Gilles, Melissa, and Lil Kym), or even the middle pack (David, Ty, Lawrence, and Chuck). She was in the bottom heat with Steve-O, the Woz, and Holly. If I were the other three, I'd practice hard and hope I wasn't double eliminated.

Also, as a minor update, along with the opening credits finally being used, the pictures of Holly and Melissa have been update to match the rest of the contestants on the official website. No longer the really bad Photoshop job plaguing the contestant's page. It doesn't exactly match the other contestant's photos, but it's better than nothing. More news after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 results

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 ResultsSteve Wozniak dodges yet another bullet. Not only did Steve not have to battle for his life, he was called early to the surprise of Karina. Steve Wozniak has fans. Lots of fans. I remember Kathy Griffin mentioning he had "Mac Enthusiasts" in her last comedy CD, but I guess they were actually as fanatic as she joked about. He must be getting the most votes to overcompensate a 10.

I smirked a little watching the show. I'm not sure why, but there was a glitch at one point when Samantha was interviewing Melissa. I was almost happy that I didn't have to hear her voice. Anyhoo, after seeing Steve safe, the bottom two was obvious. More information after the jump.

Is Melissa Rycroft a Star?

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 19th 2009 12:02PM
Melissa and Tony DovolaniThree months ago, if you asked me who Melissa Rycroft was I would have had no clue. I've never watched an episode of The Bachelor in my life. I spent my Mondays watching The Big Bang Theory and Jon & Kate Plus 8 and never got why or when they started the idea of rejected contestants becoming the bachelor/bachelorette.

Then out of nowhere, Nancy O'Dell has to pull out from Dancing with the Stars. The ABC executives shuffle and put Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft in her spot. Half of America is happy to see her rebound from national dumping; the other half doesn't know who she is. Thus the big question: Is Melissa Rycroft a star?

Will The Girls Next Door end with a wedding?

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 28th 2008 1:01PM
girls next doorI've been watching The Girls Next Door for a while and it presents such a quandary for me. I feel like I'm betraying the feminist movement every time I tune in. If I knew an old man who had relationships with multiple young girls and made them "kept women," I would think he's a sleaze ball and wouldn't want to have anything to do with him. However, I fully admit that I find The Girls Next Door fascinating.

It's probably because the life that's portrayed is so far beyond my frame of reference that I can hardly believe that it's real. In any case, I've been a semi-regular viewer and I've found myself even rooting for the girls. I want Bridget to finish school, and yes, I've even been rooting for Holly to get Hef to marry her. Well, I believe Bridget has gotten her Master's degree, and it seems like Holly may even get her wish too. Bridget was recently overheard dishing about a "huge wedding" coming up on the show.
