The Truth About Beverly Beach

Recently on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, fashion magnate and occasional British person Dorit Kemsley launched her new swimwear line, curiously named Beverly Beach by Dorit (né NAVA).

FINDING PRINCE CHARMING PHOTOCAP: Eat, Gay, Love

In a shocking development for Finding Prince Charming, calories were ingested!

I have to admit that I wasn’t planning on photocapping the latest Finding Prince Charming, but then I received a sign from the heavens that changed my plans — nay, my life.

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Love Wins… and So Does Trashy TV

Do you smell that? It’s the faint aroma of self-tanner, rancid meat, and self-pity. It can only mean one thing: Big Brother is back!!!
