'The X Factor' Recap: The Top 5 Perform Dance and Self-Selected Songs (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 7th 2011 11:05PM
Melanie AmaroAfter last week's stunning (and in some quarters, highly divisive) elimination, this week's 'X Factor' performance show felt a little anticlimactic -- especially since we didn't have Blanket Jackson in the front row showing us how not to emote.

The theme was a little vague this week, promising popular songs sung in a dance style (as you can imagine, Josh Krajcik was somewhat perturbed by this development). And, because of a vaguely-explained technical glitch that prevented the contestants from singing Pepsi Challenge songs, we were also treated to tunes of the contestants' choosing, which were all put together in under 24 hours. (It showed.)

Hit the jump for our take on the final five's double performances, and place your bets on who is most likely to go home.

'America's Supernanny''America's Supernanny' (Tue., 9PM ET on Lifetime) Deborah Tillman stepped into a world of craziness when she visited Mandy and Amy, along with their six children. With two-and-a-half year old quadruplets, it's all the couple can do to maintain any sort of order in the household.

But there were a few things that were absolutely shocking to Tillman, though Mandy had a justification for just about every one of them. First, Tillman was more than disturbed to see Mandy allowing the children to eat chips that had fallen on the floor after she had swept them into a pile.

'The Biggest Loser' marathonLast night's 'The Biggest Loser' had a twist in its tail. As promoted all season, all of the eliminated contestants returned to face off against the Final Four in a marathon. The winner of this race automatically earned a spot in the Finals, no matter when they were sent home.

Not only did they have to run a marathon ... this time it was in the desert. But at least there were cash prizes on offer for the first five finishers to help assuage the post-marathon agony. So who came out on top and made it to the Finals? And what twist did the producers have in store for the Final Four? !!SPOILER ALERT!!

Surprise Proposal on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' Reunion Special (VIDEO)

'The Millionaire Matchmaker'If ever Patti Stanger wanted validation that she was good at what she does, she certainly got it on the second part of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. Unbeknownst to her or host Andy Cohen, one of her client bachelors had an agenda all his own.

"Baby, I love you with all my heart," David said to Ayla, the woman Stanger set him up with, before dropping to one knee. He then took out a gorgeous diamond ring and asked her to marry him.

In the background, Stanger and Cohen were as speechless as Ayla was, and perhaps nearly as overjoyed when she emphatically said yes. "I've waited for a guy who would be as nice as my father is, and he's everything and more," Ayla said a few minutes later, beaming with her fiance by her side.

Jenelle Chooses Homelessness With Boyfriend on 'Teen Mom 2' (VIDEO)

Janelle Evans, 'Teen Mom 2''Teen Mom 2' (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV) came roaring back for its second season with a vengeance. More specifically, it was the vengeance of Jenelle Evans' mother Barbara. Last season, Barbara made a deal with her daughter that she could move in with her so long as she stopped seeing her boyfriend Kieffer.

Kieffer and Jenelle were both arrested for marijuana possession as well as breaking and entering, which doesn't make him sound like a great influence for the 19-year old or her child. But Barbara caught Jenelle still hooking up with Kieffer, and that was the final straw.

Which Bike Won the Build-Off on 'American Chopper Live'? (VIDEO)

'American Chopper Live: The Build-Off'After all that build-up and anticipation it was finally time to see who was the winner of 'American Chopper Live: The Build-Off' (Tue., 9PM ET on Discovery). The guys showcased their bikes and talked a little bit about them, with Jesse James keeping up the trash talk until the last minute.

"Punking people and building bikes just for TV, like these two right here," James said of the Tuetels. "Someone needs to build something that you could actually get on this thing and ride it."

"He's all talk," Paul Teutel, Jr. said. "He wants you to pretend he's something he's not, and the proof is in the pudding. I'm not a bike builder? What's that behind you, Jesse?" But who did America choose as the winner of The Build-Off?

'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior'The two-night event, 'The Build-Off' kicked off with Jesse James, Senior and Junior finishing up their bikes on 'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior' (Mon., 9PM ET on Discovery). During the process, the three have had some fun with one another, sending goofy things back and forth.

But after Junior accused Senior of sending him the inappropriate cake Jesse James sent to both of them last week, James decided it was time to focus his hate. "Senior can't be that bad of a dude, 'cause one of my closest ... friends for the last 20 years works for him," James said. "And this guy wouldn't work for him if he was a d***."

Heidi Fleiss Shows Bob Forrest Her Brothel on 'Celebrity Rehab Revisited' (VIDEO)

Heidi Fleiss, 'Celebrity Rehab Revisited'Heidi Fleiss didn't come out of 'Celebrity Rehab' clean and sober and ready to start a new chapter in her life. So Bob Forrest was pretty skeptical when he went to the brothel she's currently running to check up on her on 'Celebrity Rehab Revisited' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1).

"What do you think 'Celebrity Rehab' did for you?" he asked her. "Nothing?"

"When people ask me about it, I always say it was the best thing that ever happened to me," Fleiss said. Mainly, as she explained it, because she could finally see what a mess she was. So it almost sounded like the fact that she could see how bad she looked on television had more of an impact than any of the treatment she received.

Sheree Makes One Last Plea for Child Support on 'Real Housewives' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 4:30AM
'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'Child support is a pretty simple concept. If you break up with the parent of your child and they are the primary caretaker, then you need to help out financially. You helped make the kid, you help take care of it. But, as we saw on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 9PM ET on Bravo), some people just don't get it.

In the case of Bob, he struggled to comprehend why he needed to pay Sheree anything because she was doing okay financially. In his mind, because he provides a home for them when they're with him, his obligations are covered. This may be true if the kids lived with him 50 percent of the time.

Or if it wasn't Sheree providing most of their necessities like clothing and food. When she told him her next recourse was the courts, Bob said, "Do it." So she did -- throw water on him, that is.

'Kourtney and Kim Take New York'The slow dissolution of the marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries isn't going to be the only tension we see on 'Kourtney and Kim Take New York' (Sun., 10PM ET on E!). Khloe may not be in the title of this series, but she was all over this episode, at one point advising Kim to go to Minnesota to see her husband, and at another point pushing Kourtney to make a final decision about Scott.

But she crossed the line when she interrupted Kim's beauty sleep, leading her big sister to call her an "ugly little troll" in an email. Kim even called Kourtney to vent, while Khloe was sitting right there in the car. Kourtney had no idea what to do, so she just hung up.

Kardashian Sisters, Demi Lovato Help Battle Bullying on 'Extreme Makeover' (VIDEO)

Kardashian sisters, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'Bullying is a serious problem that can lead to all sorts of emotional and psychological issues for the victims, even later into their lives. For the Walker family, it cost them their son after he committed suicide at the tender age of 11. On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), the family was giving a new home they could hopefully feel at peace in, as well as some help with their anti-bullying initiative.

First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.

'The Amazing Race': Who Made the Final Three? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 1:00AM
'The Amazing Race' - 'We Are Charlie Chaplin'Whenever a new leg of 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) starts, you have to forget what came before. New challenges often lead to new emerging leaders. But one thing has been pretty consistent on this season. Andy and Tommy have had the luckiest run, helping elevate them to six first-place finishes. And Cindy has been so jealous of their success.

She's the kind of crazed perfectionist and competitive personality that makes her fun to watch on the 'Race,' but also makes you think she'd probably drive you crazy in the real world. Actually, she kind of drives me a bit crazy on the show, too. Sometimes you just want to tell her to relax and enjoy the experience.

Somebody's Been Tracking Trina on 'Braxton Family Values' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 12:00AM
'Braxton Family Values'When Trina's phone started acting a little wonky, Gabe had an explanation, but it wasn't one she wanted to hear on 'Braxton Family Values' (Thu., 9PM ET on WE). It turns out that her husband snuck a program onto her phone that allowed him to track her movements via GPS, and otherwise see what he was doing.

Obviously, this was not okay with Trina, nor should it have been. This is a clear violation of her privacy and of the trust that's supposed to exist within their marriage. Trina turned it back around on him, though.

"You keep checking on me because you're not doing the right thing. That's what that is," she said. If he's so unable to trust what she's doing, Trina figures, it must be because he can't be trusted himself. Why else would he think someone would just throw away the bonds a marriage is based on?

'The X Factor' Recap: Top 5 Revealed - Who Was Double-Eliminated?

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 1st 2011 9:10PM
X FactorIt was Michael Jackson week on 'X Factor,' and, for reasons probably known only to Simon Cowell, another excuse for a double elimination.

Thankfully, the poor Jackson clan weren't subjected to the results show as well as the performances (Blanket thanks you, Fox) and we're not about to prevaricate either. The remaining contestants sang 'Man in the Mirror,' with Marcus and Melanie acquitting themselves well while Chris Rene missed more notes than he hit.

Despite Steve Jones' hyperbole, only Melanie turned in a performance really worthy of the artist they were celebrating, meaning that many of the acts should've been in danger of elimination. The two artists who were sent home were ...

Jordana Instigates an Impromptu Pool Party on 'Baseball Wives' (VIDEO)

'Baseball Wives'Why should basketball wives have all the fun? These women proved that 'Baseball Wives' (Wed., 9PM ET on VH1) can be just as crazy and have just as much out-of-control fun. In fact, at a backyard party, Jordana proved that she's that girl.

You all know the one. Get a few drinks in her and get her near a pool, and she's out of her dress and in the water faster than you can say, "She's gonna do it."

Jordana convinced Brooke to join her in the underwear festivities, saying, "What's hotter than two gorgeous girls jumping into a f****** pool half-naked?"
