Jennifer and Her Big Fat Open Mouth Finally Go Home!

The picture that sent Jennifer home
I know America's Next Top Model is a bunch of crap.  However, I still watch it and I still have favorites.

I liked Jennifer in the beginning.  That was before I realized that she has one pose - - open mouthed.  Every damn shot of Jennifer this season makes her look like a trout on the end of a fishing line.  Is this high fashion nowadays?  Or at least what ANTM wants us to think is fashion? 

I honestly thought Jennifer and her mouth would win the whole thing.   Tyra obviously loved her, open mouth, wonky eye and all.  I believed she was in the Final Two for sure after Tyra said at panel that Jennifer's best shot was crap and she looked short and her face did nothing . . . but that Jennifer was sooooooo nice.

Tyra, since when does being nice have anything at all to do with taking a good PHO-to?  That's right, nothing.  If it was all about being nice, Naomi Campbell would never have had a career.

Thank God we won't have a repeat of last cycle when Tyra's obvious favorite Teyona(saurus) was pitted against Allison, who took much better PHO-tos than Teyona(saurus) and didn't break down crying during her Cover Girl ad due to nerves and whatever else, and yet Teyona(saurus) still managed to win.  (I'm open to all conspiracy theories about that, by the way).

Now it's Nicole versus Laura . . . and either gal winning is okay by me.

Are You Watching Detroit 1-8-7?

If you're not watching Detroit 1-8-7, you should be.  This is one of those shows that has a lot of promise, that works really well now and will only get better over time . . . but gets almost no marketing and no push from its network.  Those bastards. 

I have dealt with this in the past with NBC (Nothing But Cancellations) - - remember JourneymanThe Black DonnellysMy Own Worst Enemy?  All shows that had interesting concepts and could have really been developed but were cancelled in their first seasons.  Shame, NBC.

I hope ABC doesn't follow suit with Detroit 1-8-7.  If you like dramas that involve police investigations, Detroit 1-8-7 will fit the bill.  Michael Imperioli, late of The Sopranos and Life on Mars, helms this show as Detective Louis Fitch and while I haven't always been a huge fan of his, he nails this role.  Without him, this would be just other generic drama but he brings so much depth and interest to this role, it elevates the show out of cookie cutte…

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

20/20: The Hennis/Eastburn Case Profiled in "Witness"

Thank goodness for online television viewing because I missed this episode of 20/20 which aired a few weeks back, dealing with the seemingly improbable legal case of Tim Hennis. 

I have kept up with much of the Hennis case, involving the brutal 1985 murders of Katie Eastburn and two of her daughters, Kara and Erin.  I read the excellently written book Innocent Victims by Scott Whisnant.  I watched the well done television movie of the same name. 

I found the 20/20 segment to be very well done, presenting as much of the overwhelming amount of evidence as possible within the forty or so minutes allowed.  Particularly heartbreaking were the emotional interviews with the victims' husband and father, Gary Eastburn, and the surviving Eastburn child, Jana, who was less than two years old at the time of the murders. 

20/20 also interviewed author Scott Whisnant, who continues to hold firm to his belief that Tim Hennis is innocent and has been railroaded, as well as Hennis' former de…
