BANTER WITH BEN AND LISA: Paris, Marathons, and the Olive Garden

Banter with Ben and Lisa is back! We had a little hiatus for various personal scheduling conflicts, but I’m happy to announce that the podcast is back on track. On this week’s episode, we discuss a wide variety of topics, starting with my recent trip to France, Lisa’s training for the LA marathon, and all […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: Snooki Desperately Seeks Rock Bottom, Not There Yet

I haven’t posted about the Jersey Shore kids in a few weeks, but I can assure you that you’ve missed nothing. Sure, there was a car accident, and sure there were sapphic moments aplenty, but all in all, this season has been a little dull. I think it’s time to send this bunch of hooligans […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: Ron Again, Off Again

Oh lucky us: we the TV viewers nabbed two episodes of Jersey Shore this week, and guess what? They all centered around the perpetual drama swirling around Ronnie and Sammi. For some reason I thought maybe, just maybe the two idiots wouldn’t knock boots again, but I should have known better / remembered the previews […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: Twin-ter’s Bone

SPOILER ALERT: Ronnie and Sammi are back together! That’s right: reality TV’s most dysfunctional, unlikable, and messy couple has reunited for the umpteenth time, despite previous proclamations of proud singlehood and steadfast independence. I can’t say I was terribly surprised by these developments on Jersey Shore. After all, Sammi is too decimated in the self-esteem […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: Florence and the Drinking Machines

Not much happened on the latest episode of Jersey Shore, and what did happen felt all too familiar. Deena fell over. Ronnie got wasted. Sammi realized she still loved Ronnie. Deena fell over again. Situation got a blowjob. Deena fell a third time. Ronnie fell. Sammi fell. And J-Woww made coffee in the most unconventional […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: Trash TV, Italian Style

Our favorite gelled up, boob-inflated mooks from Seaside Heights returned late last week with the rousing season premiere of Jersey Shore. This time, the gang headed East to the motherland, Italy, for some back-to-roots boozing and bacchanalia. I wasn’t sure how the rather refined locale of Florence would work on this decidedly low-market show, but […]

VIDEO: Watch the Official ‘Jersey Shore’ Season 4 Trailer!!

I was afraid the Jersey Shore season four move to Italy would be lame, but if this trailer is any indication, we’ve got plenty of fun drama coming our way. Here’s what we can glean from it: Everyone’s hair is a little different. Not drastically, but enough that it makes you do the Neo-seeing-the-cat-twice-in-the-Matrix look. […]

VIDEO: Drunk Snooki Dances with Plant

In the annals of drunken celebrities unleashing themselves on vegetation, Kiefer Sutherland’s man vs. Christmas tree takes the cake. But coming in a close second is this bizarre and sad danse macabre between Snooki from Jersey Shore and a potted plant. I wouldn’t call this a particularly romantic moment, but there certainly is passion. Via […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: The Last Supper

To quote Snooki: WAAAH! Jersey Shore wrapped up its third season (or is it the second half of the second season?) on Thursday, and I can already feel a void in my life. A year ago, I would have said that sarcastically. Now I say it sincerely. I never thought I’d love this show as […]

JERSEY SHORE PHOTOCAP: A Not So Dormant Situation

Guess what? Sammi and Ronnie fought on last night’s episode of Jersey Shore! Who would have thunk it? Things had started off so peacefully for the two idiots too. Actually, not really. The show opened with them still arguing over the whole Arvin situation from last week, and in case you forgot, the allegations were […]
