A Look Back at the Most Emotional Makeovers on 'What Not to Wear' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 24th 2011 4:42AM
'What Not to Wear: Top 10 Meltdowns'Stacy London and Clinton Kelly took a break from making over women to look back at some of their more dramatic, and emotional, transformations on 'What Not to Wear: Top 10 Meltdowns' (Tue., 10PM ET on TLC).

It all culminated in Erin, who was a shy and withdrawn woman who had no self-esteem whatsoever. When Ted Gibson asked her why she'd grown her hair out so long, it had nothing to do with liking it, but rather a desire to hide her chest. She could barely stand to look at herself in the mirror.

"You're gonna have to be able to see the beauty that is within you, or else everything that we teach you to do is going to be worthless," Kelly told her.

Jenny McCarthy and Cheryl Burke Put Their Assistant on 'What Not to Wear' (VIDEO)

Jenny McCarthy, 'What Not to Wear'Cheryl Burke and Jenny McCarthy share an assistant. And as we learned on 'What Not to Wear' (Tue., 9PM ET on TLC), they also share a frustration with her fashion choices. Meet 37-year old Chicago native Becky.

Tricked into getting the makeover on the show, Becky proves game for the transformation, and the results speak for themselves. She looked fabulous in a shapely dress and absolutely floored her friends and supporters.

"The clothes were one thing," McCarthy said. "But the confidence that you saw come through just made me so happy."

McCarthy had already admitted that she thought of Becky as family, so it must have been so warm to see someone so close to you get a new and more positive outlook on life. Sometimes a physical makeover can transform your self-perception as well.

'Love in the Wild': 2x the Reality, 2x the Fun

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jul 4th 2011 2:30PM
I've never really followed an entire season of reality dating show, except for Meredith's turn on 'The Bachelorette', mainly because I was pretty sure she was doing it as a joke.

So color me surprised to find I actually enjoyed the debut of 'Love in the Wild' last week and have mentally penciled episode two into my calendar this Wednesday (9PM ET/PT, CTV/NBC). The show definitely hearkens back to the era of 'Paradise Hotel' or 'Temptation Island' but manages to feel like a fresher take on the pretty-people-in-a-hot-tub genre. Basically, it's a blatant attempt to mix 'Survivor' with 'The Bachelor'. The result includes some of the best and worst elements of both of those shows.

Mayim Bialik talks about her faith and her return to acting

saving grace mayim bialik
I suppose if you want to be cynical, you could say that Mayim Bialik is in the midst of a comeback, with several recent television roles, including guest stints on Bones, Secret Life of the American Teenager, and now, Saving Grace. However, it's not as though the erstwhile star of Blossom has spent the last fifteen years sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. After the series' end, she attended UCLA, got married, had two children, and even earned her PhD last year.

Ms. (er, Dr.) Bialik has indeed been busy, but she is now looking to make her way back into Hollywood. She's guest-starring on Saving Grace tonight as Esther, a Hasidic Jewish mother of seven, whose own mother is found murdered in a field full of dead cows. I spoke with Mayim about Saving Grace, the lasting legacy of Blossom, and how she hopes people see her today.

Here's that What Not To Wear/Blossom crossover you never asked for

by Annie Wu, posted May 21st 2009 2:26PM
What Not To WearOkay, so it's not a legit crossover, but it's more fun if you think of it that way. Blossom star Mayim Bialik is getting a makeover on the season premiere of TLC's What Not To Wear (new episodes return May 29th). Post-sitcom-fame motherhood has left her a little frumpy and hiding behind shapeless hair, and her friends and family want her to do something about it. I'm sure whatever catty nonsense the hosts subject her to won't be as embarrassing as that time I was watching an episode and suddenly realized I was wearing the same thing as Clinton Kelly.

Everybody Hates Chris'Everybody Hates Chris'
(8PM, The CW)
What kind of trouble could Chris and Greg possibly get into at a Fat Boys concert? None ... unless they've used a pair of fake IDs to get into the age-restricted show and then get caught up in a raid of the concert venue.

Which they did. And which they do. Elsewhere, Rochelle tries (the operative word) to throw a surprise party for Julius, and Drew becomes a consumer advocate.

When Chris' bro orders a pair of x-ray glasses that don't allow him to see through walls (and other things a randy teenage boy might want to see through), he goes after the company who sold him the faulty glasses and demands satisfaction. Or, at least, a refund.

starter wife'The Starter Wife'
(10PM, USA) 1st season finale
We smell a cliffhanger or two, as the fab first season of the show inspired by Gigi Levangie Grazer's novel and USA's 2007 miniseries wraps with a wedding for Lou and plenty of turmoil for Molly and her friends.

Her ex-lover's wedding, in fact, forces Molly to consider whether or not her own romantic future with Zach is worth considering. Meanwhile, Rodney's relationship with Felix takes a turn, guilt- and grief-stricken Joan makes a confession and newly-separated Liz continues to face the realities of her life without her pro baseball player hubby.

Thankfully, the network has given season two a greenlight, ensuring 'Starter Wife' can finish what it ... you know.

rudolph'Greatest Holiday Moments: TV & Film Countdown'
(8PM, NBC)
Nothing says holiday TV like a clip show, but this is actually a cool primetime filler, featuring a countdown of the tube and big-screen clips that spell ho-ho-holiday fun every time you see them.

'Frosty the Snowman'? He's in there. 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'? Check. In fact, several Rankin-Bass clips pop up in the special, which also includes classic scenes from 'Home Alone,' 'Elf,' 'It's a Wonderful Life' and 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.'

And, of course, no countdown of holiday gems would be complete without 'A Christmas Story,' that classic flick that recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and will once again air in a 24-hour marathon on TBS this year.

a night for vets'A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE'
(8PM, MTV)
The topic of U.S. troops in Iraq is a polarizing one, but we can all agree the brave men and women serving there deserve a welcoming return home.

Unfortunately, the soldiers often return to face issues with unemployment, health care and homelessness, and MTV hopes to raise awareness of their plight via performances by 50 Cent, Ludacris, Kanye West, Kid Rock and Taylor Swift.

The network is also co-sponsoring the Bill of Rights for American Veterans (BRAVE), a petition for legislative changes that will alleviate the problems vets often face after serving their country. So we'll forgive MTV for not playing music videos anymore when their primetime hours are devoted to such a noble cause.

(9PM, USA) series premiere
Will's been replaced by Rodney as her gay best friend and her boozy pal Joan has some Karen-like moments, but Debra Messing's definitely not in 'Will & Grace' land anymore with this new dramedy, which continues from last year's USA miniseries.

When we catch up with Messing's Molly Kagan, whose life was turned upside down when her Hollywood exec hubby Kenny announced he wanted a divorce, she's using entries from her personal diary for a writing workshop assignment, in hopes of getting her own post-divorce Hollywood career on track.

And if the spark between her and her hot writing instructor happens to turn into her own love sequel, so be it ...

'Gone Country 2' and 'Outsider's Inn'
(8PM & 9PM, CMT) premieres
Lorenzo Lamas or Jermaine Jackson, boot scootin' boogiers? The soap star and the Jackson 5 singer are among the seven new B-listers trying to break into the country music scene in 'Gone Country's' second season.

The rest of the wannabe line-up includes 'N Sync-er Chris Kirkpatrick, 'Fame' singer Irene Cara, Skid Row hair band star Sebastian Bach, 'American Idol' cast-off Mikalah Gordon and actress Sean Young, whose penchant for tabloid behavior should provide some reality fireworks.

Meanwhile, Maureen 'Marcia Brady' McCormick has roped fellow season one alums Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson into helping her run a B&B in rural Tennessee on 'Outsider's Inn.' But unlike Tori and Dean before them, Bobby and Carnie don't seem to be 'inn love' with the idea.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

Victoria Beckham has Fashion Nightmares?

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 6th 2008 12:58PM
Victoria BeckVictoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, would have to go a long way to be compared to the foul-mouthed, in-your-face TV chef Gordon Ramsay, but that's what Fox TV is hoping for if they want her proposed new show, Fashion Nightmares, to ape Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. The net is talking with the former Spice Girl and fashion "scion" with her dvb Style denim brand to do a show in the style of Kitchen Nightmares. In that US version of the BBC hit, the chef goes to troubled restaurants and diagnoses what's wrong and how they must fix it. Ramsay's way includes many expletives deleted and mucho histronics. Like the UK version, Fox's US variation has been a hit.

What I'm watching this summer: Annie's list

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 12th 2007 1:06PM
Flight of the Conchords

I usually loathe the summer television season because everyday is like Sunday: there's nothing good on. Actually, I believe that's what Morrissey meant when he wrote "Everyday Is Like Sunday". Save for a few shows, my summer programming is erratic and I don't follow anything religiously. Sometimes I'm so bored by summer shows, I'll -- dare I say it -- turn off the television. Then I sit around and daydream about the new Harry Potter book or something. Yes. Summer TV is that bad. However, there are a few things that I'm currently looking forward to -- and not all of them are re-runs.
