We don’t find any profound enjoyment in piling on how trashy reality television has become we’re still desperately trying to forget the public enema that occured on VH1’s Flavor of Love 2 but, seriously, where’s the bottom?
As Nikki Finke reports in this week’s L.A. Weekly:
This week marked a Reality TV milestone: Los Angeles restaurateur Mike ‘Boogie’ Malin threatened violence against one of the female houseguests on CBS’s Big Brother All-Stars and the show’s producers did nothing obvious to stop it. According to the live feeds of the final-four showdown pitting two ‘hos’ against two ‘bros’ (their billing, not mine), Boogie made an obscenity-laced pledge to turn into a wild animal against cocktail waitress Janelle Pierzina if she used the all-important Power of Veto against his partner-in-reality, Will ‘Dr. Evil’ Kirby, a Playa Vista dermatologist. ‘If she votes you out,’ he told his pal, ‘I’ll shit in her face. I’ll piss on her face right there on the block on TV.’
