This week on “Watch What Crappens,” Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com) tackle all sorts of weighty issues such as Is Dana really as drunk as she claims on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?” And what does Kandi sound like when she climaxes on “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? And most importantly of all, is Stassi truly better than a bottle of vodka on “Vanderpump Rules?” Serious stuff here. Come on in!
One of the worst shows to land on Bravo in ages has to be Vanderpump Rules, but unlike those legions of terrible and forgettable series like Mis/Advised or LOLwork, this vile turd is so bad it actually has become fun to watch. Now I’m not an ironic TV viewer — I don’t generally tune in to something awful simply to mock it. If I’m ridiculing something, I tend to enjoy it at some base level.
However, Vanderpump Rules is so loathsome, I couldn’t help but immerse myself in it. Even worse, I’ve become invested in it. I wouldn’t say that I care about any of the vapid servers at SUR, the tacky restaurant that provides the backdrop for this show. It’s more that I’m fascinated to see actual Mean Girls doing what they do best: instill fear in the weak, inspire hostility in the equally matched, and divide and conquer the rest. The intrigue stems not from whether Jax and Stassi might reunite but rather from the always looming possibility that someone might please, please put these idiots in their place (spoiler alert: it never seems to happen).
By the time we wound up at the reunion this week, we’d amassed so much deplorable behavior from the entire cast, that it was a minor joy seeing these kids face the stinky bullshit they’d been tossing around. Some people, like professional doofus Jax, caught plenty of heat for questionable, if not downright sleazy choices. However, others like queen B Stassi seemed to only get a light slap on the wrists. Not fair, I say! Luckily, the thrashing Stassi’s surely receiving on the Internet will more than make up for Andy Cohen’s lack of needling. And I’m only too happy to participate!
After the jump, a photocap from the reunion…
This week on “Watch What Crappens,” Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com), Matt Whitfield (Yahoo!), and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) head to Paris! At least through their TVs. The guys analyze the boozy European exploits of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” before heading back to LA to take on the reunions of “Vanderpump Rules” and “Shahs of Sunset.” Then it’s on to “Atlanta” and the miserable “Top Chef: Seattle” finale. Along the way, there’s gossip about Adrianne Maloof, talk of “Orange County” season 1, and initial impressions of “LA Shrinks.” Come on in!
