'Desperate Housewives' - 'Chromolume #7' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E17) "I know that you have a secret." - Gaby to Angie

'Desperate Housewives' titles are always found in lyrics of songs written by Stephen Sondheim. This week's unusual title is no different. 'Chromolume #7' is a song in the musical 'Sunday in the Park with George.' More precisely, the Chromolume #7 is a color and light machine featured in an act of the musical.

The title fits with Mary Alice's commentary at the end of the episode saying that it's not always easy to see people's true colors and that people hide their true nature from us every day. This week, we got confirmation on Angie's secret, we learned who Sam really is, we discovered how Gaby acted when she was a high profile model, and we met Preston's girlfriend and mustache!

Paulina Porizkova Talks About Tyra Banks and Getting Fired From 'Top Model' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 10th 2010 7:20PM
"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful." That's how actress-model Kelly Le Brock began her Pantene shampoo commercial in the 1980s. Well, supermodel Paulina Porizkova put a new spin on that on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) while discussing her relationship with Tyra Banks and getting fired as a judge on 'America's Next Top Model.'

When Williams asked her how she got fired, Porizkova replied "Over the phone, the day before my birthday." When Williams and the audience "awed," Porizkova made a fake crying face and quipped "Poor supermodel." Good for you, Paulina. Don't feel sorry for her because she's beautiful ... and famous.

America's Next Top Model: And the Winner Is... (season finale)

by JJ Hawkins, posted May 15th 2008 12:47AM

The final three.

(S10E13) The above screencap is the photographic equivalent of a horizontal suck sandwich.

Okay, that's not entirely accurate. The photos of Whitney and Anya are perfectly fine, but my hatred for the individual in the center pretty much taints the picture for me.

And in a broader sense, that's been the overarching flaw with cycle 10 of America's Next Top Model.

America's Next Top Model: Ready for My Close-Up

by JJ Hawkins, posted May 10th 2008 7:35AM
It's the final four.

(S10E12)
This cycle of America's Top Model has made me want to start up a debilitating heroin addiction.

Week after week my favorites have flown out the door starting with the "excitable" Amis and ending with that travesty of an episode two weeks ago when the distractingly beautiful Kataryzna was yanked for "too being vapid." My words, not theirs.

I can't seem to figure out what the hell the judges are looking for this go around, but I sure can tell you what they got. Want to hear it? Here it goes.

America's Next Top Model: Viva Italia!

Anya takes a spill.

(S10E10) I accidentally went through last weeks entire recap without a single mention of Lauren going straight Ginsu on her thumb.

I figured I shouldn't make the same mistake two weeks in a row so decided to intro with Anya's faceplant on a brick street..

We heard the requisite record play scratch immediately after she fell. We got Anya's diary room explanation of how it went down (literally). And we got to watch one girl out of five turn around and help Anya pry her mandible from the ground.

America's Next Top Model: For Those About to Walk, We Salute You

by JJ Hawkins, posted Apr 16th 2008 11:42PM
Dominique is not cute.

(S10E09)
Now, I don't want to come off as too harsh or insensitive, but if Dominique is the first thing I see when an episode of America's Next Top Model begins, I usually do a double take to make sure I didn't accidentally hit play on my Gremlins 2 DVD.

Some say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I say Dominique's eyes be holding no beauty.

They say the eyes are the window to the soul. I say Domique's windows have vacancy signs tacked on the panes.

Some say an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. I say, I would gladly gouge out both of my eyes with a worn tooth if I have to look at her just a week longer.

America's Next Top Model: If You Can't Make It Here, You Can't Make It Anywhere

Dominique is hot like glacier.

(S10E07)
I cracked open my laptop and stared blankly at the screen for a good 30 minutes trying to muster up the will to write four to five paragraphs that ranted and raved about how much I love Fatimanique.

Nothing came to me, so I cracked open a bible hoping that the good book would remove the hate from my heart, and grant me the ability to look past their demonic facades and love them like normal human beings should be loved.

It didn't work, so I cracked open a Stella Artois hoping that some Belgium malt liquor would provide me with the liquid strength necessary to force my mind into pretending I gave a crap about these two medieval gargoyles.

America's Next Top Model: House of Pain

by JJ Hawkins, posted Mar 26th 2008 10:44PM
Aimee doesn't have any model experience.

(S10E06) To be perfectly honest, I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to Aimee this season.

I mean look at her in the capture above. The waterfall or the buildings behind her have just as good a chance at capturing your attention as she does.

She's pretty nondescript to say the least and while she's a pretty girl and everything, she just hadn't done very much to stand out this season aside from profess her anxiety of being naked around other women. I'm not ashamed to admit I find that to be a turn-off.

America's Next Top Model: Top Model Takes It to the Streets

Fatima is going to win!

(S10E05)
We're down to 10 girls on this cycle of America's Next Top Model, and my strategy to root for the models I least want to win is in full effect.

I'm currently supporting Dominique and Fatima with the hopes that they make it to the final two and I have to admit it's really painful having to do this.

I cringe every time I hear Dominique refer to herself in the third person. I gag every time Fatima talks about how ghetto or stupid another girl is. I cringe and gag having any positive thoughts about them, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for the models I really want to win.

America's Next Top Model: Where's the Beef?

by JJ Hawkins, posted Mar 12th 2008 11:24PM
Amis is a cutie.

(S10E04)
I have a confession to make. I've developed a bit of a crush on Amis.

It's not the psychotic plant-a-GPS-transponder-on-her-car-and-stalk-her crush that you might see on an episode of Dateline or anything. I've simply grown fond of her goofy personality.She's got a real every-girl appeal about her and she's not the typical kind of model that you see coming on this show. I find her pretty refreshing. If Amis were to read this, I'm sure she'd find what I wrote slightly disturbing.

America's Next Top Model: Top Model Makeovers

by JJ Hawkins, posted Mar 8th 2008 11:32PM
Allison hates the other girls.

(S10E03) "Oh my God, I'm getting so annoyed with all of these girls!" - Allison

The full quote was too long to put here in the intro. Allison went on to say that she wants to strangle all of the other girls on regular basis and that she's not really threatened by any of them. Allison is convinced that she's light years ahead of everyone else thanks to all the experience she's had modeling in her lengthy 19 years of life.

While Allison is an extremely pretty girl, she's just got to go! The I'm-so-much-better-than-these-other-girls attitude she's been displaying since day one pretty much makes her the ugliest girl on the show, and that's saying a lot with Dominique still in the running. Can I get an "oh snap"?

America's Next Top Model: New York City, Here We Come

Dominique puling back her hair.
(S10E02) I'm still a bit shocked that Tyra went through all the trouble of opening up the competition to 14 girls this season and out of everyone she could have selected, she went with Dominique.

I mean, I admit that Dominique is a little bit exotic looking, but so were the baboons I saw the last time I went to the zoo. Umm, that came out wrong. That was horribly insulting to all the innocent baboons of the world. I take it back.

I kid, I kid. Dominique isn't that unattractive, I just don't think she was the right choice for this competition. It almost seems like the only reason she's there is so the judges can crack drag queen jokes about her all episode long.
