    SNIP During Tuesday night’s reunion episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Bravo honcho Andy Cohen revealed that newcomer Dorinda Medley had gotten an unlikely endorsement from Hillary Clinton. “I hear that you heard from Hillary Clinton about the show,” Cohen, 47, said to Medley. “Yes, can you believe that,” the 50-year-old socialite exclaimed. “‘Cause Richard [Medley’s deceased husband] used to work on [Bill Clinton’s ] campaign, so I got a call from one of the people who work on it and they said, ‘You know I just want to tell you that Hillary really enjoys you on...

    Keeping up with The Megyn: Like the government the fawning media of the day tries so hard to emulate, mainstream media has now given itself authority over the masses—including aspiring Republican presidential hopefuls—to which it has no right. Fox News, which came onto the media world as providers of “the fair and balanced” news, are now coming on just like Obama, having proved before 24 million viewers, it’s now going to be their way or the highway. Until We the People find a legal way to get around their destructive polices, they have to put up with Big Government in...

    Donald J. Trump, the billionaire real-estate mogul, on Tuesday will release a summary of assets that total about $9 billion as part of his likely entry into the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to people familiar with his plans. The two-page document — which will be published after he holds a political rally at Trump Tower in New York — will provide a valuation of his hotels and other properties. It will also show hundreds of millions in cash on hand and an outline of his debt, the people said. The details he will reveal Tuesday will provide one...

    Reality TV is now dictating to the masses what is 'normal' and making millions of dollars at it in the process There’s always a Paul Harvey-type “the rest of the story” for everything. According to Greek mythology, a young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water, the pool of life. Hurtling forward to centuries later, along comes a preening, latter-day Narcissus, Barry Soetoro, posing in full presidential gear as Barack Obama, who when he peered into the pool of life, saw not just himself reflected there but millions of people just like him...

    Whether he wears high heels or not, Jenner’s still what his Creator made him--a guy. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, spouses wanting to duck out on commitment and responsibility abandoned their marriages on the pretext of going off to “find myself”. With the ‘Me Generation’ coming into its own, and ‘free love’ in abundant supply, what could possibly go wrong? Life for the Lib-Left tumbled along like tumbling tumbleweeds down the empty streets of America’s western ghost towns over ensuing decades. People got used to knowing that Liberals have not only always justified any and all behavior with bleeding heart...

    Reality TV is about to get hot and heavy. The Post reports that WE tv has ordered a one-hour pilot of Sex Box, a reality show where couples will do the deed inside a soundproof box. Based on the U.K. show of the same name, the format takes real couples whose relationships are on the rocks, has them fornicate in the box, and then immediately address their issues with a panel of experts. The ‘in the moment’ approach “fosters conversations about intimacy that are completely filterless and emotionally honest,” according to the network’s pilot description.

    A shoplifter, a recovering drug addict and a young couple barely able to feed their kids are among the stars of Benefits Street - a smash hit reality show featuring welfare recipients that has stirred up a storm of controversy in Britain. The program zooms in on a rough Birmingham street where 9 out of 10 people are said to live off state payouts, chronicling over five episodes the lives of jobless neighbours as they struggle with their daily problems. The show has struck a strong chord in a nation fresh out of recession and still reeling from its most...

By Victor Davis Hanson The hysteria over Duck Dynasty reminds us that cable TV is currently inundated with working-class, white-guy reality shows. Top-drawing, relatively low-cost realities showcase gold miners, oil drillers, hunters, locomotive drivers, off-the-grid backwoods eccentrics, fishermen, crabmen, truck drivers, ax men, moonshiners, or the new generation of Beverly Hillbillies. The list of the particular subspecies of the muscular classes is endless. These shows share a few common themes. They do not take...

    TRIPLETT, N.C. (AP) -- The way Eustace Conway sees it, there's the natural world, as exemplified by his Turtle Island Preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains. And then there's the "plastic, imitation" one that most other humans inhabit. But the border between the two has always been a porous one. When he bought his first 107 acres in 1987, Conway's vision for Turtle Island was as "a tiny bowl in the earth, intact and natural, surrounded by pavement and highways." People peering inside from nearby ridges would see "a pristine and green example of what the whole world once looked...

    It's official. Reality-television executives have lost their minds. The reality-TV shows featuring mostly black casts debuting in 2013 are setting back images of black folks in television at least 60 years. While critics are obsessed with the controversial film Django Unchained, there is a movement taking place in reality television that has elevated black buffoonery to the highest level possible while diminishing black culture to the lowest level in recent memory. The images of blacks on TLC's reality shows Best Funeral Ever and The Sisterhood and Oxygen's All My Babies' Mamas are appalling. They are also reminiscent more of images...

The show spent $3.6 million on production in the state, meaning that Alaskan taxpayers covered a third of the cost of the show. The show will apparently not have a second season.

    Swedish producers are scouring the United States for Americans with Swedish ancestry to take part in a new reality television series that will bring participants to Sweden to compete in cultural challenges.

    TLC and why Palin will never be president -- part 2 Last week I wrote a piece pegged to tonight's TLC pairing of Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin on Palin's "Alaska" reality TV series. The core of my commentary was that Palin will never be president because she has sold herself too cheap to low-rent reality-TV venues like TLC, and now she is being perceived as another one of the channel's freak moms like Kate Gosselin or the women on the series "I Didn't Know I was Pregant." As the title so coyly suggests, that shows features women who gave...

    As a single mother-of-eight, Kate Gosselin is no stranger to stress. But it took Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin to publicly reduce her to tears. The bizarre duo headed off together on a camping trip in Sarah's native Alaska recently. Filming the adventure for an episode of the politician's new reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, Kate brought her eight children with her. 'I have never camped for real,' Kate, 35, admitted in a new clip of the episode, released today on In the preview clip, viewers can watch Kate hiking through the woods with her group of children and learning...

    After Bristol Palin brought 'Dancing With the Stars' unprecedented buzz and ratings, it sounds like the show's producers are dying to go back to the Palin well. This time, they want Bristol's dad. "They want him big time," a source told E! Onlione. "They'd love Sarah, but they don't think that will ever happen, so why not go for the dad." The show is also after another politician's daughter, Meghan McCain, as well. Which would mean, if producers have their way, that family members of the 2008 GOP Presidential ticket would be instead be competing against one another. Weird.

    I am confident that by now, you have all read about Sarah Palin's Alaska program. I'm also confident that you have all been witness to the MSM's overtime/overkill effort to destroy Sarah Palin's reputation. One of the barrage of tactics the MSM has been resorting to is to brand Sarah Palin's Alaska as a "reality tv" show. Some of your have been guilty of assisting the MSM by posting stories which include the description of this particular show as being a "reality" program. I would like to encourage all my fellow Freepers out there to call the show what it...
