According to IMDB, many people who like VH1's new self-explanatory reality show Dating Naked have also enjoyed a 2000 home video titled Totally Nude Aerobics.

Meet the Assholes of Bravo's 'Extreme Guide to Parenting'

There are two kinds of parenting approaches: Yours, and everyone else's. There are reasonable parents who set boundaries and give love (like you), and then there's the crazies: the hippies, Tiger moms and assorted nutjobs who fill us with the warm glow of self-righteousness.

Here Are the Best Dumb Things Ryan Lochte Said on His Reality Show

His fame, his good looks, his 11 Olympic medals, his seeming good nature, his unending capacity for inanity and the singularity he achieves within his babbling all make him a perfect specimen for reality… » 4/22/13 10:15am 4/22/13 10:15am

The Marlins Should Probably Take Down This Poster Of Their Canceled…

Last year's second season followed around those NL-favorite Marlins, with top talent like Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, all led by fiery manager Ozzie Guillen.

Jeff Kent May Have Torn A Knee Ligament Falling On A Raft In The…

Former MLB second baseman Jeff Kent is no stranger to weird, improbable injuries, having famously claimed he broke his wrist while washing his truck. (Turns out he fell off his motorcycle while he was popping wheelies and the Giants were none too happy.) So of course, it's weirdly fitting that Kent would be no more… » 9/19/12 9:00pm 9/19/12 9:00pm

Jeff Kent Took His Survivor Cues From "The Fat, Naked, Gay Guy"

You can thank CBS for bringing together two things you probably haven't thought about in nearly a decade: Survivor and Surly Former Second Baseman Jeff Kent™. The show has already filmed, and Kent is back from the Philippines, but since it doesn't premier until next week Kent can't talk about what went down, or how… » 9/14/12 2:40pm 9/14/12 2:40pm
