Reality Show Fights: The Best Punches, Slaps and Spits (VIDEO)

by Chris O'Connell, posted Dec 17th 2009 12:08PM
Jersey ShoreIf you've been watching 'Jersey Shore' -- and if you know what's good for you, you have -- you may have heard about petite guidette Snooki's getting clocked in the face by a mystery male assailant. (The promo was everywhere for a while, but was pulled after MTV edited the punch out of the episode, which airs tonight.)

The idea of the punch (and the sight of it, for those of us who've watched it) is alarming for a few reasons. First and foremost, the image of a man hitting a woman squarely in the face is shocking; most reality show fights that escalate to physical violence are between two men or two women. Furthermore, these reality show fights rarely involve actual punches; normally it's a bunch of hugging disguised as grappling, rolling around on the ground and hair-pulling until the producers move in. This is the real deal.

But if you've ever been to Seaside, NJ, you aren't surprised by this use of unnecessary violence over what was probably an argument about a slice of boardwalk pizza or a discussion of Yankees vs. Mets. Also, if you've seen a reality show in the past five years, you aren't surprised that someone caught a bad one. We've compiled the best punches/slaps/etc. of the last few years in the wonderful world of reality television.

Super Skank Wednesday: Charm School for the men of I Love New York

UnsureWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

So no I Love Money on Sunday night? Wha-what? Pshaw! How can I do my awesome picture books without a new episode?

Okay enough complaining. After the jump, I'm going to discuss a show that doesn't exist (yet) in the VH1 skanktastic line-up: Charm School: The Men of I Love New York. I've got a list of my fantasy cast.

Super Skank Wednesday: 12 Pack's Destruction, A Tale of Hubris

12 Pack gets eliminated by Toastee.Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

This Wednesday let's do another picture book fairy tale. I'm learning a lot from I Love Money. How about you? After the jump, I have a piece I call "12 Pack's Destruction, A Tale of Hubris." I'm not a betting woman, but I don't think anyone on ILM knows what the term "hubris" means.

Super Skank Wednesday: 12 Pack's master plan, a quaint children's tale

Mr. Boston whimpersWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

After Sunday night's episode, I am reminded of the classic line from Steinbeck's novel, "The best laid plans of mice and men are often effed up by blondes with huge fake boobs and nasal voices." Or something like that. Or maybe it was from the Robert Burns' poem. But enough of this talk about low brow things like famous novels or poems. Let's get to I Love Money.

Hoopz is on I Love Money
Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

There's been a lull in trashtastic programming lately. I'm stuck watching So You Think You Can Dance (some of the those Latin ballroom costumes are a little slutty) and Secret Diary of a Call Girl (scripted skankiness). I long for VH1 to start their summer of skanktacity. We got a little taste last night with the I Love Money casting special. Check out my review after the jump.

Megan Hauserman, one of the stars of I Love Money
Earlier this week I reported that VH1 was adding to its already awesomely skanky line-up. (I told you that was Megan Hausermann with the question mark on her face!) Throughout the week, the network has been announcing the cast of I Love Money, a competition show that will take all-stars from your favorite VH1 shows and let them compete for cold hard cash. The show premieres in July so that means this summer ... just. got. better.

After the jump, I've got the cast and some predictions. You can check out VH1.com for full galleries of the cast members.

Heather, runner-up from Rock of Love 1Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, I Love New York (or whatever show Tiffany Pollard is making next), The Surreal Life, and Charm School. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

After the jump, I'm doing a quick round-up of this Sunday's Rock of Love 2 and Monday's Flavor of Love 3 just in case any of SSW readers didn't see the shows. Then it's on to the fun part. I call it "And In This Corner." It's a series of match-ups between Flavor of Love and Rock of Love girls past and present.
