Here is a Media Week Podcast that Reality Ravings did with Amber Giles who writes reality TV for TV Week, and what she doesn’t know about reality TV is not worth knowing. She has this great yarn about when day light saving occurred in NSW the Big Brother housemates noted the live evictions had been brought an hour forward and thought this meant no one was watching the show and it had been moved to GO! Here it is if you want to listen to the best and worst of reality TV there is a lot of Big Brother talk due to the finale last week. (Source: Media Week )

Raver, thanks for the link to the Bourdain article. Nice to read his erudite and amusing writing again. I’ll think you’ll find that his real beef with the “new guard at Travel” was that he was spliced into an advert segment for Cadillac without his knowledge or approval. No wonder he’s pissed off enough to leave the show.

I was wondering what happened to the Mary Murphy case as my idea of a perfect threesome is me in a loin cloth with Ajay, Mary and a very large, industrial-strength water-bed. I’d been waiting for more details about the “cocaine-fuelled nymphomaniac” allegations. Pity.

CB – well Mary Murphy did not deny it.

Thunder-thighs are go! Better take a gag with you CB – Mary will scream your head off. In fact, use the socks instead of hiding them under your loin cloth.

Hi RR, thanks for the link to the Amanda Giles podcast. I enjoyed it and it was good to have a little bit more BB goss to help me come down slowly from my 3 month addiction to the show and your BB blog. It was a good ride made all the more fun by being able to join in with the chats on RR.

You can do this over and over if you need to be able to
prevent interest costs simply by making payments to just one lender
instead of several of his debts combined. consolidate credit are an option for those struggling
with multiple debts. You need not put your home
at risk and don’t put yourself in a worse situation than you are right now. Are you in a pretty deep financial and you need some financial relief?
