Does the world really need a show on “Extreme Cougars”?

I feel sick to my stomach!

TLC is at it again! The network that brought us child beauty queen and conjoined twins is at it again. It’s latest subject — older women and their much younger men … and we couldn’t be more excited!

“Extreme Cougar Wives” will look at the love lives of different “cougars,” in addition to the challenges and stigmas that come with being in a relationship with someone significantly younger.

While this is the first time a reality series will follow cougars (and their prey), women of Hollywood have been dating much younger men for years.

A new unfortunate show on TLC has been unveiled: “Obese & Expecting”

I am getting so disgusted with the state of TV these days. I was flipping through the channels the other day, and found a show about a company that makes fish tanks. FISH TANKS!? What the hell is interesting about that!? There is seriously no rock left unturned anymore, no story untold. There will soon be a show about my life…stay tuned.

The network is set to unveil Obese & Expecting, about four moms-to-be who are morbidly overweight.

The project will chronicle their health crises, weight gain and relationship struggles as they strive to deliver healthy babies.

According to the upcoming announcement, “These women are challenging the perception — and the odds — of obese pregnancies, as they become moms, no matter their size or complications.”

The network will launch Obese & Expecting as a one-hour special and potential backdoor series pilot next month. Many TLC shows (such as the hit Extreme Couponing) first launch as stand-alone specials, then the network gauges audience reaction and decides whether to order a full season. We wouldn’t be surprised if this concept, at the very least, received a fair amount of pre-launch publicity (the show’s original working title, by the way, was the MTV-inspired My Supersize Pregnancy, though we would have gone with, say, 600 & Pregnant).

Will you watch? C’mon, you can be honest.

Michelle Duggar suffers a miscarriage.

In an unfortunate turn of events, what should have been a joyus day – turned out to be a nightmare for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

The couple went in for a routine check-up today to find out the sex of their 20th child, and their doctor was unable to find a heartbeat. Now in her second trimester, Michelle suffered a miscarriage.

“After the appointment, we came back home and told the children,” says Michelle, 45.

“We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment.”

She says the family will select a name after they know if the baby was a boy or girl, and then plan to have funeral service.

“I feel like my heart broke telling my children,” says Michelle. “They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him.”

The stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting previously weathered a medical ordeal with their youngest daughter, Josie, who was born in December 2009.

This was their second miscarriage; Michelle lost her baby during her second pregnancy. She was taking oral birth control at the time and cites this as one reason the couple together decided to leave the number of children they have “up to God.”

I’m so sorry she suffered a miscarriage. I’ve had two of my own, and I know how heartbreaking they are.

What I find troubling about this story – is that Michelle suffered the miscarriage TODAY – and she’s already releasing statements? No time to mourn? No time to be with your family, and deal with this painful loss?

That makes it even more sad to me…

This is why you need to kiss before your wedding day…

This video has been making the rounds today, I’ve seen it on half a dozen sites. I finally stopped and watched it – and now I know why!

TLC has a new TV special coming out called Virgin Diaries. The show is about a couple who have never had sex – and never kissed anyone before. The camera catches their stomach-turning first kiss.
