Lisa Kudrow’s ‘Web Therapy’ — Best New Show on Television

Written by , Posted in General

I constantly struggle to find new television to watch. In fact, almost all scripted television I currently watch is in its final year, which means I’m prepared for some lonely nights very soon. In an effort to find a new show, I recently powered through one episode of almost every show on television, and I stumbled across the very funny ‘Web Therapy.’ It stars Lisa Kudrow as ‘Fiona Wallace,’ a terrible online therapist who treats her clients with three minute sessions. The show is largely improvised, and it actually began online before Showtime picked it up to air the existing episodes on its network. Good work, Showtime.

The Dishmaster Returns From Labor Day Weekend!

Written by , Posted in General

Fear not loyal readers! The Dishmaster is back from vacation, and I’ve had just enough beauty rest to rejuvenate my coveted dish-tastic attitude. Hope you didn’t miss me too much. Who I am kidding? I hope you crawled into a fetal position and cried at the thought of living without me for five days. So buckle your seat-belts and get ready for more posts from the Master of all Dish (Now I’m just getting carried away).

Happy Labor Day — Dishmaster Vacation

Written by , Posted in General

Well folks, it’s that time of year. And by “that time” I mean The Dishmaster is taking a much needed vacation, where I’ll be spending time with my family who will most likely inquire about my lack of new posts, despite knowing I’ve spent the entire day away from the computer. Gotta love it, right? So unless there’s some celebrity melt-down that requires Dishmaster analysis, I’ll be back on Wednesday with what I can only hope will be a revived, sunshiny attitude. Have a great holiday!

The Challenge: Rivals Reunion: Is Maria Menounos a Bad Host?

Written by , Posted in General

There are days where I fantasize about how much easier my life might be if I looked like Maria Menounos. Then I remind myself of my fantastic personality and amazing breasts, and I squash my pity-party. And speaking of personality — why is it that Maria Menounos is hired to interview the cast of MTV’s ‘The Challenge: Rivals’ and can’t be bothered to ask the most important questions? I realize the show is about physical challenges, but some of those physical challenges include sex, and I’d like to know which cast members are still having it — with each other. The only relevant question she asked involved Jenn Grijalva and Adam King, and after watching Jenn huff-and-puff over nothing (no pun intended), I still have absolutely no idea whether she and Adam had sex in the back of a bus. I blame Maria for that. And what about Chris “CT” Tamburello and Laurel Stucky? Since CT is so beautiful he hurts my eyes, imagine my disappointment when Maria failed to confirm his single status. I suppose that’s neither here nor there since CT and I have a date on a deserted island somewhere where he’ll go out into the ocean and catch me fish with his bare hands. A girl can dream, can’t she? And finally, are Wes Bergmann and Mandy Moyer still friends-with-benefits? What exactly did Maria think she was paid to ask during this interview? Perhaps she needs to watch more of those Real Housewives reunions and take some notes from the great Andy Cohen.

UPDATE: It’s been brought to my attention by a very kind commenter that Maria did in fact ask the correct questions but the douchey editor over at MTV decided to edit those out. For details on what really happened, and the answers to the questions I posed above, read Adam King’s blog. You’ll be relieved to know that CT is still available — for me. And my major apologies to Maria for insulting her interviewing skills.

Reese Witherspoon & Taylor Swift Have Lunch — Jake Gyllenhaal’s Nightmare?

Written by , Posted in General

If two of my exes went to lunch together, I imagine the conversation would go something like this: “Isn’t The Dishmaster really great in bed? Wow, I really did miss out on an amazing thing. Perhaps we should call her right now and beg for her to take us back.” Seriously though — the idea of two people I dated sitting in a room together is quite possibly my version of hell. I wonder how Jake Gyllenhaal felt about it. According to Us Weekly, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift shared a lunch, and the conversation included a discussion on how self-absorbed Jake can be. I can’t say I believe the story, though. Did someone wearing a wire? Unless a very nosy individual at the neighboring table blabbed to Us Weekly, I can’t imagine that this is true. Having said that, I’m certain Jake lost sleep just thinking about it.

David Arquette on David Letterman — Discusses Dancing With the Stars

Written by , Posted in General

When you work in Hollywood, you’ll find that most of the people in the business are either gigantically douchey or extremely nice. There is no in between. I’m happy to report that David Arquette is the latter. I met him at a Hollywood shin-dig, and as a massive Howard Stern fan, I could not resist approaching him to compliment his Stern appearances. Arquette was incredibly gracious and down-to-earth, so it makes me happy that he’ll be on Dancing With the Stars this season. Though I think he’s a little too famous for the show, insiders tell me that the stars make a considerable amount of money per episode, and with over 20 million viewers each week, it’s probably a smart career decision for Arquette. Plus, who could argue with good PR on a family show? Watch him discuss the contestants with Letterman.

‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Needs to End — Hear That TLC?

Written by , Posted in General

‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ isn’t “controversial” — it’s objectively immoral. It’s not okay to sexualize young children, and it’s certainly not okay for a network to profit from a parent’s disgusting choices. In the clip below, you’ll see a four year old named Maddy Jackson appearing as Dolly Parton, which includes wearing fake breasts and a fake butt. The stir surrounding the show was recently discussed on ‘The View,’ when Eden Wood performed a song, and the show’s viewers erupted in fury. At the time, Barbara Walters argued that no one complained when Shirley Temple did it, at which point Joy Behar rightly pointed out that Shirley Temple was never sexualized. She never waved her ass around while wearing fake boobs. At some point, a network must take responsibility for where they churn profits, and this show needs to end. Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves for ignoring the moral high-ground in favor of ratings. These are children.
