Not a Good Look

Bethenny jet-setting with billionaire Warren Lichtenstein and her daughter Bryn in the midst of a messy divorce is not a good look.Adrienne Maloof and Sean Stewart serving us Harold and Maude is definitely not a good look. Joan Rivers conspicuously ignoring Giuliana’s heinous Globes gown on Fashion Police is suspiciously not a good look. Lance Armstrong’s reluctantly contrite (but for sure contrived) ass was not a good look on Oprah’s Next Chapter.

JLo’s People cover = Not a Good Look. Lisa Vanderpoop’s insipid new spinoff celebrating adulterers is not a good look.

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?

Are you watching?  Please tell me you are watching.  Joan’s got a new program people, and it does not disappoint.Joan moves in with the (still) insufferable Melissa in L.A.  From the get, Joan hates her room and has serious concerns about Dominica, the Scandinavian nanny. Bad-ass granny Joan Rivers is the best possible influence for her slightly fruity grandson.  She’s arrived at the don’t-give-a-fuck stage of life, freeing her to whip a wet towel of blunt honesty to the bare asses of all those around her.  In a sea of bullshit programming, Rivers is a buoy of straight-talking truth.  There are for sure some fake, contrived aspects, but especially on a celebrity-centered reality show, setups are an unavoidable part of the deal. Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? – look into it for sure.  Need more?  On the first episode, Joan gets shut down by three different doctors who refused to do additional plastic surgery.

Arrested

E! recently made a genius programming decision by upgrading Fashion Police to a weekly series.  Joan Rivers has never been sharper as the Grand Dame presiding over a panel which includes Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, and George Kotsiopoulos.

With segments called “Starlet or Streetwalker?” and “Bitch Stole My Look,” this show doesn’t pander to the celebrity ego.  Joan, above reproach at her age, gets away with saying Taylor Swift must be bad in bed, and George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis make a stylish lesbian couple. Speaking of Giuliana, we don’t do baby here at Demeter Clarc, but didja all happen to catch Giuliana and Bill on Friday’s View pimping their new book on their miscarriage press tour?  We all sympathize with the couple for sure, but my inner cynic recoils at the notion of leveraging this kind of loss to bolster book sales and promote the upcoming season of a reality show.While Giuliana has a comforting chipmunky quality, sort of a Katie Couric for Carrie Bradshaw disciples, a ravenous, fame-seeking beast pulses beneath her perky veneer.  Even though the couple’s intentions to share their struggles may come from a pure place, the decision to craft their image around reproductive challenges is a risky strategy indeed.  What if they have five miscarriages before they conceive?  What if they never conceive?  Is the public now privy to every detail since they have offered up the most private part of themselves in exchange for fame?Speaking of late-thirties baby news, OK! reports Rachel Zoe has finally dulled the ache in Rodger’s pussy by incubating their very own Scarlet Begonia this awards season.  Mazel Rach and Rodg!
