Things I learned from my cable TV

Kristy SwansonI'm going to hazard the guess that if you are a regular visitor to TV Squad that you, like me, probably watch more television than the average bear. Partly out of good old fashioned curiosity, and partly because I'm paying for all of those channels so I might as well use them, I make it a point to cover as much of my cable TV package as I can when time allows. Doing so, you end up finding some odd and interesting things. After the jump, five things I've learned from my cable TV over the last week or so.

Celeb skater arrested for assault

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 17th 2007 7:44PM
kristy swansonMaybe she's just channeling Anna Nicole Smith* or something, but celebrity skater Kristy Swanson is in a bit of trouble with the mounties up in Canada. She has been arrested for allegedly attacking the ex-wife of her baby daddy, professional ice skater Lloyd Eisler. Lloyd and Kristy had a baby together back in February, which is about a year after they originally hooked up while paired up on Fox's short-lived show, Skating with Celebrities. Lloyd Eisler's wife was eight months pregnant at the time that he left her for Kristy.

People magazine is reporting that Kristy actually blames Eisler's ex-wife for the altercation, though Kristy is the one who was arrested.

*Kristy's most recent gig was a guest stint on Law & Order where she played a character who was based on Anna Nicole Smith.

**UPDATE Kristy is pressing assault charges against Eisler's ex-wife. Canadian police took photos of bruises and cuts on Kristy's body. It sounds like quite a brawl. And they're fighting over this guy.

It's a boy for skating stars

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 17th 2007 2:37PM
kristy swanson; lloyd eislerKristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler are the new parents of a baby boy. The couple met on Fox's Skating with Celebrities in late 2005. At the time, Eisler's current wife was pregnant with the couple's second child. But Eisler says they had already separated before he and Kristy hooked up. It became pretty obvious about halfway through the series that something had happened between Kristy and Lloyd.

The couple's baby is named Magnus Hart Swanson Eisler. He was 7 pounds, 11 ounces. The couple plans to marry but have not announced a date.

Celebrity, skater expecting a baby

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 7th 2006 9:37PM
skating with celebritiesAnd I thought it was just a fling. Actress Kristy Swanson and figure skater Lloyd Eisler, winners of FOX's Skating With Celebrities, are expecting a baby. Kristy's due date is Valentine's Day, 2007. It's the first baby for Kristy and the third child for Lloyd Eisler. It became pretty obvious during the competition that the two had hooked up. They went from awkward to smooth in just one week. After their 'turning point' performance, Kristy got caught up in the moment and tried to kiss Lloyd on the lips but he turned and she planted one on his neck.

I guess love is what makes a good pair of skaters. Or sex.

Skating with Celebrities: Part 6 of 7

skating part 6Part 6 of 7? You know what that means... we aren't going to find out who the winner is until Thursday next week.

This episode was really a drag. And when I say "drag", I mean that they really dragged this one out to fill an entire hour without actually announcing the winners. The episode began with a recap of who got voted off when, and then all the skaters returned for encore performances. Todd Bridges is awkward and mechanical on the ice, reminding everybody why he was the first one to be booted off this competition. Kurt Browning is sporting a bald head? In the middle of the show all the teams resurrected previous routines that they skated, an element otherwise known as a time suck.

These two totally hooked up

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 17th 2006 8:04AM
swanson eisler togetherThis could explain a lot. Star Magazine and the gals on The View are reporting that Skating with Celebrities pair Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler are now an item. On Monday's episode, these two really sizzled. Kristy seemed a lot more comfortable with Lloyd than she had in the past episodes. She almost kissed him on the lips at the end of their routine, but he turned and she got his neck instead. I know she's an actress, but she looked totally smitten with him during that whole routine. Whatever it was, something changed for those two between the fourth and fifth competition. If it is true, it's not all happy. Lloyd's wife is eight months pregnant with their second child.

Skating with Celebrities: Part 5 of 7

swanson eislerWe're down to three teams: Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler, Jillian Barberie and John Zimmerman, and Bruce Jenner and Tai Babilonia. I think it's pretty obvious who the weak skaters are here, but we'll see what happens on the ice.

Just a quick recap: last week we bid farewell to the not-very-graceful Dave Coulier and Nancy Kerrigan. Before that, Deborah Gibson and Kurt Browning were out, and the first team eliminated was Todd Bridges and Jenni Meno.

Skating with Celebrities: Part 4 of 7

scott hamilton summer sandersNow that Deborah Gibson and Kurt Browning are gone, the playing field seems pretty evenly matched. It looks like the remaining teams had a lot of falls during the last few practices.

Did host Scott Hamilton get taller since last week? Summer Sanders doesn't seem to tower over him as much tonight. Or, maybe I'm just used to seeing them together now so the height difference doesn't bother me as much. Well, the "witty" banter still sucks.

Let's get it on...

Skating with Celebrities: Part 3

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 31st 2006 10:15AM
Before we begin, I have a couple of notes about the contestants on this show:

Isn't it sad how the announcer refers to Dave Coulier as being from Full House? I guess it could be worse. He could say, "Dave Coulier, allegedly the subject of Alanis Morrisette's very bitter You Oughta Know." I actually think he may be more famous for that.

Anyway... on with the show.

Skating with Celebrities so far

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 30th 2006 2:32PM
Now that I can finally watch more than one channel at a time, I decided to start watching Skating with Celebrities. Why, you ask? Sick fascination, I guess. It's like Dancing with the Stars with an added element of danger. And facial mutilation.

Here's what you need to know about the show, if you're joining me in adding this show to your viewing schedule:
