After seeing Kate Gosselin’s (funny!) performance in the opening skit of the Emmys last night, I have a suggestion for her: Start making fun of yourself on a regular basis. You know… like William Shatner.

Seriously, the dude has turned goofing on himself into an art form… and he’s laughing all the way to the bank.

“Real Housewives of New Jersey”: Send in the clowns (don’t bother, they’re here!)

I really don’t have much to say about last night’s finale of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” – which featured the much-ballyhooed showdown between loose cannon Danielle Staub and fierce mother cub Caroline Manzo – other than it was kind of uncomfortable to watch and really rather silly.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

So I attended the “Twilight” convention in Parsippany this weekend, and there were more wolves there than you could shake a fist at.

Whoa, Nelly! You don't want to see us angry.

Here’s the highlights (in my opinion, anyway) of what the stars said/did. Alas, Robert Pattinson was not in attendance.

“American Pickers”: Trash or treasure?

Move over, “Real Housewives.” Take a hike, “Jersey Shore.” I’ve got a new obsession.

What show do I look forward to more than any other these days? "American Pickers."/Photo credit History.com

Yep, that’s right. I’ve got a serious bee in my bonnet about History’s “American Pickers.” The hour-long show (which airs at 9 p.m. Mondays, as well as reruns throughout the week) follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they criss-cross the country *picking* through peoples’ stuff in search of treasures they can sell out of Mike’s shop, Antique Archaeology, in Le Claire, Iowa. And you might be surprised to see some of the things they consider treasures.

“Real Housewives of DC”: How much is too *real*?

Is “The Real Housewives of DC” too real for America?

What's your beef with "The Real Housewives of DC"?/Photo credit Bravo

That’s what I’m wondering after reading a lot of negative comments (“boring” is the chief complaint) about the show on various sites. (Here’s just one. By the way, people can complain about how the show isn’t representative of the residents who live in DC, but you can say that about any show. I assure you, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” doesn’t represent me, a lifelong Jerseyan, or any of my friends, for that matter.)

All of these complaints about “DC” confuse me, because I really like what I’ve seen. But I gather I’m in the minority here.
