If you were late to the party and missed the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race fear not. RuPaul has given you an opportunity to see the fierce queens who busted down the doors to the runway with RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Lost Season. Why was it lost? Seems the first season never made it to DVD, so unless you recorded off your DVR, season one was on the down low until now. Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race season four has begun! I wasn’t sure any season could top season three with Raja and The Heathers, but with talk of zombies, and a futuristic apocalypse, the first episode got my attention. I’m pretty sure when the apocalypse does occur, drag queens will be the last ones standing, looking fierce atop the wreckage in their seven inch glitter platforms. As the new queens made their way in the “Werk Room” I had a few first impressions. Continue reading
Last night, Yara Sofia, Manila Luzon and season 3 winner Raja were at Tracks in Denver to kick off the RuPaul’s Drag Race tour. They performed for packed house of enthusiastic fans, including RuPaul’s Drag Race season 1 contestant and Denver’s favorite drag queen, Nina Flowers. The girls put on an amazing show and Trashwire was there to cover it. Check out our pics and video clips from the show and Like us on Facebook for more. WERK! Continue reading
Cycle 16 of America’s Next Top Model premiered this week and it is not fierce anymore, it’s just mean. This year Tyra the Torturer has thought of all sorts of new Mean Girls things to do to these already fragile girls. In the opening segment, Banks basically reveals she is just as tired of this show as we are. She even acknowledges the formulaic casting that happens every season: the edgy chick, the awkward waif, the country bumpkin, the welfare mom, the bitch, the prude, the smart one… you know, the usual.

It seems like ages ago, since the last season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and I was more than anxious for the show to return. Logo did it right with letting Ru have a full three hours to get us all back into our boas, tiaras, and glittered heels.
They kicked it off with the “Casting Extravaganza”, which showed many of the aspiring divas who didn’t make the cut. Some were probably contenders, but others had a more William Hung quality.
Hour two officially kicked off the uber anticipated third season. Continue reading
Before Ricky Gervais was pissing people off at the Golden Globes or writing the original version of The Office with friend and writing partner Stephen Merchant, he was marveling at the brain of Karl Pilkington, a radio producer assigned to the duo for their program. In fact, anyone who has listened to the widely popular Ricky Gervais Show podcasts or watched The Ricky Gervais Show on HBO is familiar with the musings of this “little, round-headed, bald, missing link, chimp-like buffoon”, as Gervais has so sweetly labeled him. Continue reading
The new reality series Hollywood Treasure will premiere Wednesday on Syfy, hoping to snag the audience from shows like American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow, but with an added bonus: this show will pull in those of us who love TV and film memorabilia as well. Continue reading
Besides the change in temperature, crappy television also signals the beginning of the summer season where writers save their wit for the fall and actually “go to there” – there being vacation. While the smart people play the suits stray away and we end up with the American revival of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me out of Here! Continue reading
TV Land’s new series The Cougar is more along the lines of “classy” reality dating shows like The Bachelor or, most recently, Mama’s Boys instead of deliciously trashy VH1 Rock of Love-style trainwrecks. The show, hosted by Vivica Fox, follows Stacey Anderson, a self-proclaimed “cougar” who is looking to find love with a younger man. Continue reading
Whenever I think reality tv has hit rock bottom, something new comes on that takes it to an all new low.
The latest contender is Rock of Love Bus on VH1. The show follows Bret Michaels (who used to be known for being the lead singer of Poison but is now a puffy, middle aged reality star) and the gaggle of skanks vying for his affection, or at least a little tv time. Instead of the usual tacky mansion, this time the whole gang will be living out of buses as they follow Michaels around the country during his tour. Continue reading
