Lifetime released the first clip from The Unauthorized Full House Story, and they definitely did not have mercy on us. I mean, if this is what we can expect from the telemovie on August 22nd, I wonder if it is too late to cut it out.
On a positive note, at least we have Fuller House to look forward to on Netflix.
Yesterday, I posted the cast photo for Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story, and I thought that casting was the worst. That casting was spot as compared to the job that Lifetime did for The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story.
I mean, at least with 90210, you knew who they were by their hair color. When it comes to the Melrose Place one that didn’t even work. I mean the actresses playing Heather Locklear, Daphne Zuniga, Josie Bisset and Marcia Cross look nothing at all like them, in fact they look worse than the originals. When it comes to Grant Show, he should be thanking them for casting someone that makes him look like a male model. Finally, the rest of them are just average, not horrendous and not spectacular, but just there.
I hope the movie that airs on October 10th is better than the casting; but let’s be real, it won’t be.
Are able to guess who’s who in that cast photo? To see if you guessed right, then click here!
Watch with Kristin got their hands on the first cast picture from The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story and the promotional photo gets an F-. I mean it is like Lifetime doesn’t even care about casting these Unauthorized movies any more. They will just cast anyone in the part as long as they have the same hair color. On a positive note, the actress playing Jennie Garth looks like her. On a negative note, none of the actors look like the people they are playing. Who is that guy supposed to be behind Gabrielle Carteris? I am assuming that Andrea because of the glasses. Seriously, can the casting be any worse?
BTW we have until October 3rd to come up with a drinking game for this movie, so if you have one let me know.
Tonight at 10p, Lifetime finds out what happens if you force two polar opposites to live together for 8 days. Each week, Living with the Enemy will have two people with different opinions on subjects that they are passionate about spend 4 days living in one person’s house and the next 4 in the other person’s. They will tackle issues like Proud to be Fat vs a Fitness Addict, a Strict Mom vs a Lax Mom and a Meat Eater vs a Vegan to name a few. Each person is dead set in their ways, but are they willing to listen to the other person when they can’t escape them?
Tonight they have Kristy Love who is a Big Beautiful Woman and she loves her body, all 335 lbs of it. Michel Marley is a fitness guru and she HATES fat people.
Love moves in with Marley and her four children, and immediately Marley fat shames her. Marley keeps telling Love that she is going to die because she is so fat and forces Love to work out and eat the food she is eating. While they are eating dinner together, Love asks one of Marley’s daughter if she likes the food and the girl says no. It is then that Love points out, that this girl might grow up to have an eating disorder. Love feels that her mom is forcing her eating habits on her daughter and that might lead to a lot of consequences between the mother and the daughter.
As the women get to know each other, Love explains that issues with her mother is why she is the way she is. Then while they are talking, Love finds out that Marley has no friends, she shuts them out if they don’t meet her weight standards. In fact, at one point during the show, Marley says she doesn’t need friends because they will interfere with her working out schedule.
Now it is time for them to travel to Love’s house. Love wants Marley to hang with her friends who are big and beautiful like her. Marley starts to go off on them because they are fat and tries to make them feel bad about themselves. Thankfully, they don’t listen to her.
Marley keeps telling Love she is going to die, so they go to a doctor who checks her out to see if that is true. What the doctor says shocks Marley more, but it all goes in one ear and out the other.
Next up, Love invites Marley to take part in a photoshoot together. Love wears an outfit that shows off a lot of skin, while Marley wears a cute little black dress. While Love is taking pictures, Marley is taping her stomach to make herself look even skinnier than she already is. That’s right the skinny woman, feels the need to make herself look even skinnier.
Then Love takes Marley on a date with her and boyfriend and things get so heated between them that Marley starts saying “Oink, oink,” to the happy couple.
It all concludes with a final confrontation between the women that leads to Love kicking Marley out of her house.
Neither woman really took anything away from the experience, but we will. You see that both extremes are not the best, as we strive to remain in the middle. And yes, you will pick sides because how can you not.
Can Love afford to lose a few pounds? Yes, and Marley can certainly afford to find them.
In an upcoming episode a mom of four acts more like a friend to her kids, while another mom is more like a drill sergeant to her kids. It is interesting to see their different parenting styles and I am sure we are all going to side with the same parent because I can’t think of anyone who would want the other one as a mom.
These are just two of the episodes and I can’t wait to see the other 4 that they have completed. They include Same-Sex vs Traditional Marriage, Porn Star vs Anti-Porn Advocate and Anti-Polygamy vs. Multiple Wives.
I really hope this show does well because I want to see this show comeback for a second season. Mainly because I want to see the Liberal vs the Tea Party Member episode. What confrontation would you like to see?
Before we get to see what we want, we have to watch what they have. Tune in for a really interesting reality show that will make you change your opinion about something you thought you knew. Watching two extremists go at it, is the best way to get you to form an opinion.
This Saturday night at 8p be prepared to have your world rocked by A Deadly Adoption on Lifetime. The telemovie stars Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes and it is yet to be determined if it is a comedy or a drama. What seems to be evident is that the comedic actors had a great time getting serious for it. Maybe the two actors, who are consistently nominated but never winners, will finally win an award for their work in it.
Seriously, doesn’t it look like the ultimate Lifetime movie?
Finally, who else is blown away by Hidden Citizen’s version of Mike & the Mechanics’ Silent Runnings? I never thought that song would work like that, but it is actually better that way than the original.
Even since April 1st, people have been talking about the fact that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig made a movie for Lifetime. As soon as it was announced, the two denied it and said they were no longer making it because the news had been leaked. Then a few weeks ago the rumors started again and today the network released the teaser trailer for A Secret Adoption.
So is it a comedy or a drama? It’s hard to tell from those :30 seconds. Let’s see if the description from the press releases gives us more answers. They wrote, “Inspired by a true story, A Deadly Adoption is a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes, 90210) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.” That didn’t help. I guess we will just have to tune in June 20th to find out.
The first cast photos are out for Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Full House Story and if there weren’t kids in it, it would like the pornady version of Full House. I mean it’s so cheap looking, it looks like the basic cable version of the show. Shall I go on?
Seriously though, even though it looks horrible and there’s no need for a scandalous movie about a squeaky clean cast, I can’t wait to see it on August 22nd. Are you going to watch it with me?
The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe is going to be told tonight and tomorrow at 8p on Lifetime and you don’t want to miss this bioflick!
Tonight’s episode starts off with her visiting a doctor and telling him all about her life. Marilyn Monroe (Kelli Garner) starts from the beginning of her life when she used to go by Norma Jean. You see a young girl taken away from her mother (Susan Sarandon) who is mentally ill. The dreamer goes from foster home to foster home, until one day she is married off to save her from the system. As soon as she can, she tries to get into the movie business. The rest of tonight shows you how hard she had to work to become the actress we know her as today.
Tomorrow, we learn about her love life with Joe DiMaggio (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Arthur Miller (Stephen Bogaert) and the Kennedys. While looking at the men that were in love with her, you start to see her slipping away and becoming dependent on drugs an alcohol. Those substances lead to her early demise at the early age of 36.
Marilyn’s story has been told time and time again, but this one is different than the rest. I feel like in this one you get to know her the best. I think because it focused so much on the first part of her life as compared to just focusing as her life as a star. The other thing that makes this movie so lovable is that is exactly how Kelli Garner plays her. Monroe was loved and I think Garner captured that essence of her the most out of all of the other actresses who have played her in the past.
Lifetime has been plagued with some really hideous biopics in recent years, and The Secret Life of Marilyn looks to be turning things around for the network.
Lizzie Borden took an axe, killed her father and stepmom, got acquitted and now what? That is what Lifetime’s mini-series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles is going to tell us beginning tonight at 10p.
Now that the trial is over, Lizzie (Christina Ricci) and her sister, Emma (Clea DuVall) are trying to get their lives back to normal. Only problem is everyone is trying to get a piece of their money. Without money, how will they be able to do that? To make matters worse, where ever they go people seem to die. Even though Lizzie has been cleared of her parents’ murder, cops are wondering if she is the suspect in these latest crimes? Is she or is it just a coincidence? You will just have to tune in to find out.
When I heard about this mini-series I was looking forward to see what they were going to do with it. While I enjoy the story, I hate the editing. It feels like an artsy independent horror film and I am not a fan of those type of movies. If you can get past that, then you will enjoy the story loosely based on one of the most notorious females of the late 19th Century.
Ever since Dance Moms has started, it seems like Abby Lee Miller has never really been supportive of her student Nia. Now, that Chloe, Paige and Brooke left the show, it appears that Nia has been the primary target of the dance teacher’s. Her mom, Holly, has remained quiet for most of the show’s run; but since the new season started, she found her voice. Several times Holly has confronted Miller and the dance teacher has in turn taken it out on Nia.
Recently, the show relocated from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, so that the girls could have more opportunities. Miller hasn’t done anything for Nia, so Holly took things into her own hands. She made some calls and got Nia into a recording studio with Aubrey O’Day. Abby tried to sabotage the meeting with a phone call to O’Day that was seen on the episode, but it didn’t work.
When Nia returned to dance studio, Abby said she would not be dancing in the group number. Basically, she punished the preteen for going behind her back to do something she wasn’t helping her do. How can Nia not be mad at the woman who is supposed to be her teacher, but doesn’t do anything but her put her down time and time again.
Well, Lifetime released a deleted scene from yesterday’s episode and we finally hear from Nia. While she was playing a clip of her song for the girls and the other dance moms, she voiced her opinion about the woman who is supposed to be her manager and help her. She said, “I did that without Abby too. You don’t need Abby to do everything. You can do stuff by yourself. You can do just fine.” You tell them girl because yes, you can and you totally did.
Now, I have to wonder why didn’t Lifetime air this scene? Is it because they don’t want to show that some of the girls are sick of, what I perceive as, being bullied by Abby Lee Miller? You never hear them talk bad about her, but here is the proof that at least one of them has on one occasion. I wonder if some of the other girls feel the same way. I am sure they do. I know I want to see more clips like this on the show. This season has gotten very hard for me to watch. The amount yelling, name-calling and puts downs, I see come from Abby are sickening. It used to be an even mix of that and the dancing, but now I feel it is all about Abby losing her temper. I think if things don’t change soon in the editing of the show, more people like me will stop watching. If we stop watching, then the show gets cancelled. If the show gets cancelled, then how will artists like Sia find the subjects for their music videos? That’s right, I read somewhere that Sia Tweeted Maddie that she wanted her in the music video, and she didn’t go through Abby to do it initially. Just saying.
Are you feeling the same way I am about the turn Dance Moms has taken this season?
