I love historical fiction but I hate anything to do with time travel. I had been reading about Outlander and was pretty psyched for it. Prior to its premiere on Saturday night, the show had already been streamed over 900,000 times as Starz released it early. I guess I forgot that the entire plot is a time traveling one, so…I watched the show and now I'm TOTALLY sucked in and I know the time travel thing will become an issue for me. I love the lead character already. Her name's Claire Randall. She was a nurse in World War 2. She's smart, strong, opinionated a modern thinker and pretty horny. The war ended and she and her husband hit the road for the Scottish Highlands. Her husband's okay I guess, a historian and genealogist, not the hottest dude in the world but seemed okay. Claire ended up in the woods and touched this stone and woke up back in the 1740's. That's the set up and I'm totally into it. It's a short series. I think it's only 7 episodes. Anyone else check it out? 

Big Brother

  • Bunny slipper alert
  • Why is everyone so shocked when people lie?  You can't win the game without lies, but now there are so many lies it is hard to keep track of anything
  • Zac is still "unemployed" I'm sure his parents are grateful for the reminder.  Thanks  CBS 
  • Derrick just sat back and let the house combust but really…it WAS all him
  • Who wrote those names on the bracket board? Probably the mysterious stranger in the converse sneakers? 
  • Zac just went with the odds in the HOH competition and didn't  read the questions. His 50/50 strategy worked 1/2 the time and he was OUT of the competition bad idea, bud.
  • Nicole and Christine won HOH and to their credit, they quickly got over their issues
  • OMG Nicole's outlet snout voice is awful. No way a man can take that voice for eternity, no way. 
  • Do the houseguests drink a ridiculous amount of liquids or what? They ALL always have cups of something.  Maybe it's boredom?
  • Donny, Zac, Caleb & Frankie were all put up on the block. Smart moves. 
  • When are they going to swap the big table for the smaller one? Should be soon right? 
  • Victoria has NO clue what's going on and just watch…she'll win this thing
  • The Caleb/Frankie face to face was intense and Zac loved every second. Man people turn on each other FAST! Remember the days of Zac snuggling up in bed with Frankie? Feels like just yesterday because IT WAS! 
  • Thursday Night Football Battle of the Block…nice plug CBS, Les will be very happy! 
  • Caleb decided not to even play so Frankie had to play a two person game alone and he WON! 
  • Tear count: 1 (Nicole 2x)
Teen Choice Awards

  • I think Demi Lovato's going for the Miley Cyrus hairdo thing. Could Moschino have plastered their logo anywhere else on her outfit? I counted 5 giant logos. I give Demi credit for wearing such tight clothes, not the most flattering for her. 
  • Cher Lloyd's mirror pants were pretty cool and yet very dangerous at the same time. Many chances for a million years bad luck
  • Tyler and Sarah very cute together
  • 165 MILLION VOTES cast!
  • Choice Song of the Summer: Demi Lovato
  • Choice Female Country Artist: Taylor Swift
  • Choice Movie Actor in a Drama: Ansel Elgort from The Fault in Our Stars

  • Kim, Kylie and Kendall all in the house. Kylie Jenner towered over her sisters and looked like she hasn't eaten solid food EVER
  • Choice Movie Actor/Syfy-Josh Hutcherson BABABOOEY represented at the Teen Choice Awards. Josh needs to grow out his hair. It looks like his Mom cut it
  • Most Shazamed Song of the Summer: "Rude" by Magic

  • Ultimate Choice Award: Selena Gomez No mention of Biebs, but huge love to her Mom
  • One Direction won: Choice Love Song, Choice Break-Up Song, Choice Summer Tour, Choice Male Hottie, Choice Social Media King & Choice Twit (Don't think that's a good one to win)
  • Becky G sang "Singin in the Shower" and Arianna Grande was dancing with her Nonna (aka Grandma)
  • Choice Breakout Star Award: Oday Rush who stars in the new movie The Giver. Oil of Olay apparently kept her fresh throughout the shoot. Huh?

  • I love JT from The Fosters, but he was chewing gum while he was presenting…UGH total loser
  • Jason Derulo closed the show and I went to bed 

Real Housewives of NJ
The fallout from last weeks First Responders party played out in last nights episode of RHONJ. Only one person came out ahead of the game in my opinion and that was Bobby, Nicole's boyfriend. He had his girlfriend's back and stayed out of everything. He tried to  go talk to Amber and Jim but they took zero responsibility for their actions so Bobby cut the ties, and took Nicole to a shooting range. She actually shot pretty well considering she was wearing stiletto boots and could barely see the target over her huge fake boobs. For some reason, Joe Giudice decided to add chickens to his life. He put the chicken coop right next to the German Shepard cages and the dog killed two of the chickens. Who knew that all the Giudice's needed to calm Milania down a bit was some chickens? Have we ever seen her so mellow and filled with love? Never! I can't believe that Dina bugs the sh*t out of me so much. How can you say "Namaste B*tches" in one sentence? She seems to think she's better than everyone but yet she still comes out with things like "The magnitude of his dooshbagery could clean a whales vagina." What classy person has that sentence in their brain? Amber invited Dina and Theresa for a poop facial. That was odd. Dina had a date with the pretty boy from the party who was a half hour late and never called or texted. Who does that these days? 


4 Days til WWTM goes on vacation, but I'm already sort of tuned out a bit and need your help this week.  Send in some trivia questions! Readers Rule all week.
