Awkward TV: Anchor Imagines Christina Hendricks Naked

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Gossip, Video,

Awkward exchanges - as hard as they can be to watch - often come with very important lessons. This moment between KTLA’s Brian McFayden (yes, of MTV fame) and ‘s Christina Hendricks comes with two.

1. Note to reporters: It’s okay to imagine naked. Many people have. Just don’t tell her when you’re doing it – and don’t admit in on live television.

2. Note to any female who might be lucky enough to have Hendricks’ body: Don’t ever tell a man you were “running a bath.” This will only lead to uncomfortable moments – especially if other women nearby are forced to listen.

VIDEO: Three Seasons of Mad Men Smoking

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, Video,


NOTE: This post is

not

an attempt to encourage anyone to smoke. So just relax and make yourself a drink.

As we previously learned from Don Draper’s Guide to Picking Up Women, there are key things you should know how to do if you want to “have affairs with many women.” “Smoke constantly” is one of these lessons.

Smoking is, of course, a (nasty) vice that looks entirely different when done by a handsome character like Don Draper. Therefore, it couldn’t hurt to copy some of his techniques. Maybe this clip featuring all of the cigarettes ever smoked during the previous seasons of can help you get started.

MONDAY (7/19)
  • Behind the Music (VH1, 8pm):  “ is profiled through interviews and archival clips. The R&B star discusses his relationship with TLC’s Chilli.” I’d hate to say things are still “chilly” between them, but…
  • Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10pm):  “Jane clashes with her new boss (Donnie Wahlberg).” You have to hang tough with that guy.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season finale. “The three beauties left are paired with celebrities to party the night away. They then don’t get to sleep it off, but instead must film a commercial about Las Vegas. One player folds like a house of cards from the sleep deprivation.” Beauty sleep is for suckers who can’t afford plastic surgery.

Quote of the Day: Bill Clinton on Mad Men

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, Gossip,

Mad Men

“You ever watch that TV series ? If I keep watching this program, will I ever find a happy person? Great television. Good drama. But a lot of really painful reminders in that show about how black people were supposed to run the elevators… were supposed to ask permission before they get on an elevator. The way women were treated is appalling, and only occasionally funny to me.”

-Former President Bill Clinton speaking to a diverse crowd in Chicago about the 1960’s-set drama.
