Help, I Can’t Stop Watching Floribama Shore Help, I Can’t Stop Watching Floribama Shore

As is usually the case with television shows I love, the gospel of Floribama Shore was preached to me long before I ever considered actually watching it. For nearly a year, friends like Jezebel’s Clover Hope and Megan Reynolds tried to convince me that MTV’s reality series about early twenty-something Southerners who…

The Art of Comparing Pus to Food, Courtesy of Dr. Pimple Popper

You have to wonder whether Dr. Pimple Popper (née Dr. Sandra Lee) is a sadist. Yes, she has devoted her career to helping the lump-afflicted.

The Real Housewives of Potomac Cast Continues to Top Their Reunion Outfits in the Worst Way The Real Housewives of Potomac Cast Continues to Top Their Reunion Outfits in the Worst Way

The Real Housewives reunion couch is a place where dreams and nightmares collide. It’s a place for the cast to show off their most woefully glamorous outfits. It’s a night where everyone’s outfit is some dreadful combination of wedding, prom night, Cinderella ball, and Super Sweet 16 gone wrong. What’s most…

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Is Getting Denise Richards The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Is Getting Denise Richards

Though I barely watched the previous season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and was unable to finish it, out of boredom (I would much rather spend time on Terrace House), it’s safe to say the Beverly Hills part of the franchise needed a fresh pint of “housewife” blood to keep it fresh. That person will be Denise…

In Homage to Terrace House's Tsubasa and Shion, the Greatest Love Story of Our Time In Homage to Terrace House's Tsubasa and Shion, the Greatest Love Story of Our Time

Reality television romances rarely evoke emotion other than schadenfreude, Debordian fascination, or derangement. The closest thing to a fascinating reality romance in America right now is that of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, whose whirlwind love and compulsive watchability combined with seamy speculation on…

She Picked Him She Picked Him

The man we all figured would win The Bachelorette—after he scored the first impression rose and a smooch on night one—has won the heart of Becca Kufrin. Garrett Yrigoyen is Kufrin’s new fiancé, in what turned out to be one of the most predictable Bachelorette seasons in history.

Dr. Pimple Popper, Now With Fart Jokes Dr. Pimple Popper, Now With Fart Jokes

New York Times best-selling author Jessica Knoll’s second novel, The Favorite Sister, is set on a fictitious reality show called Goal Diggars—a sort of Real Housewives meets Project Runway where five female entrepreneurs turn their startup business narratives into familiar Bravo plot lines.

Dr. Pimple Popper Would Like to Welcome You to the Triangle of Death

Last week’s episode of Dr. Pimple Popper nearly broke us, but this week’s episode felt...tame, somehow, in comparison. Perhaps it’s because of the lack of fluids that resemble soft cheese—or maybe it’s because our constitutions, stomachs, and hearts are growing ever stronger.
