Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has only been incarcerated for less than a week, but already numerous tabloids have attempted to get their hands on the first pictures of The Simple Life actress in jail. The tabloids are willing to give as much as $500,000 for the pictures, a price that they hope will encourage those working within the Los Angeles’ Century Regional Detention Center to put their cameras to good use. Hilton had the option of going to a pay jail, where she would have received more privacy, but refused to do so, claiming, “The media portrays me in a way that I‘m not and that‘s why I wanted to go to county, to show that I can do it and I‘m going to be treated like everyone else. I‘m going to do the time, I‘m going to do it the right way." Hours before she turned herself in at the Men’s Central Jail in downtown, Los Angeles, Hilton was seen savoring some last moments of freedom, including a making an appearance at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards. Read more »

If you thought MTV had hit rock bottom, you were wrong.  Sure, their phalanx of dating shows over the past few years have been an embarrassing reminder of just how low and shameless the once proud and edgy network has become.  But, it wasn‘t until today that MTV officially scraped the bottom of the barrel.  It has careened into the abyss, tossing off any semblance of self-respect and embracing the potential commercial merits of pure, unadulterated evil.  If you haven‘t guessed already, MTV has ordered ten episodes of a Paris Hilton reality series, tentatively titled Paris Hilton‘s My New BFF.  On the show, wannabe sycophants will compete in a series of competitions in order to become Paris Hilton‘s new best friend forever. Read more »

Hours spent in the water cooler doing all the same. So maybe what I said earlier isn‘t entirely true, after all... Read more »
I know, I know, this article‘s title doesn‘t make much sense. "What‘s so real about reality TV?" you might ask. "It‘s fake situations involving not-so-fake people. I don‘t watch that sort of thing!"And yet we still do, which explains why Heidi Montag remains as (supposedly) relevant as ever. It‘s also the reason why we watch the Kardashians make an issue out of birth control. And also the reason why Team Cupcake exists. And why we hate Rachel on Big Brother. And why Paris Hilton survived that sex tape and managed to run for president of the United States. Read more »
