Summertime Blues

How about this weather? No matter what part of the world you live in, the weather is a beast right now. On the west coast, we're literally in a frying pan. But that's what air conditioning is for, right?

Well, huntees, it's summertime, and I don't know if it's just me, but it feels a little melancholy. I feel like I haven't done half of the things on my summer to-do list, and my goal of rocking a bikini-bod did not come to fruition quite as well as I'd hoped. But fear not! There's still a lot of juicy tv for us to enjoy this summer.

First: FLIPPING OUT!!! Flipping Out premieres TONIGHT on Bravo at 9 pm. I cannot tell you how much I adore this show. Jeff Lewis is the most hilarious (even if it's not intentional) boss ever. I've had some nightmare bosses, and believe me, I'd much rather watch Jeff Lewis than work for him. He is pure entertainment gold. My girl Jenni Pulos is super funny as well. I love her attitude and her sense of humor. I'm glad she's still on the show. I wasn't so sure she'd stick around ... but she did, and that's great for us! Trace and Sarah are also back, and I'm kind of looking forward to seeing Sarah get yelled at. She's SO ditzy. I was hoping she'd grow out of it, but I guess not-sies. My favorite of all is Ms. Zoila. She is my life when this show is on. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to and watch any video you can with her in it. You'll thank me later.

Now, I know it's just the reunion, but at least we get the Mob Wives for one more night on Sunday, July 10th at 8 pm on VH1. It'll be hosted by Wendy Williams, and I can guarantee it'll be amazing. These women need to bring it, and answer the tough questions that I'm sure Wendy has for them. By the way, new Wendy Williams shows will be back in September, which I'm kind of bummed about. It's been like 3 months without new Wendy shows!!! But I guess she deserved the summer off, homegirl is hustlin': hosting reunions, hosting game shows, etc. How you doin'?

Of course, we still have Basketball Wives, which is getting interesting. Has anyone else noticed that every show is missing one castmate or another? One show Tami will be out of the mix, the next Shaunie, the next Royce? I don't know why they do that. There's enough room for everyone in each episode, believe me, they just need to quit repeating stuff over and over and showing the same thing we just saw before the commercials, after the commercials! Does that make sense? I hope so. Anyway, if you have a chance, read Royce's blog on It's insightful and funny and honest. I really like her.

I'm trying to get into Million Dollar Decorators and Rocco's Dinner Party - I think this tonight's Dinner Party with the Roastmaster General, comedian Jeffrey Ross, will be just the thing to lighten up my Wednesday night. I'm still trying to decide if I like Rocco or not. In a way, I do because he's suave and a little sarcastic, which I love, but then again, he can be kind of annoying. I just don't know about him. Regarding Million Dollar Decorators, the only one that holds my attention is Mary McDonald. The whole show should be about her - she's funny and a little koo-koo. I'm just saying.

Celebrity Rehab is back and I don't know how much I'll watch. Besides the fact that Michael Lohan makes my stomach turn, I wonder if it's just too heavy for my summer tv palate. I need something light, fun, and breezy. Not sad, tragic, and depressing.

Take, for instance, Ice Loves Coco, which airs Sunday nights on E. Perfect summer show. Ice is hilarious and Coco seems like a sweet person. Their relationship seems real and honest, and I can respect that. There's very little drama, and when there is, it's usually wrapped up in a nice little bow at the end of the episode. Oh and I read Ice's book, which was really interesting and very inspiring. That guy's been through it all. No wonder he's so laid back. Life is definitely good for him these days.

And don't you dare forget about RuPaul's Drag U on Logo! If you don't get Logo, you can always watch online on See my previous blog (Dragnificent!) for more on this amazing show. I'm about to watch the second episode right now!!!
Finally, I must again pay homage to Andy Cohen and his show, Watch What Happens Live. I will be watching on Sundays and Thursdays, no matter what. And don't forget to tune into the Live (for the east coast) Aftershow on immediately following the tv broadcast.

Happy Summer, happy tv viewing, and as always, I appreciate your comments and tweets (@humorandspice)!!!
