    RHONY

    Ramona and Carole have exposed Bethenny as orchestrating the Tom at the Regency 'Don't Let It Be About Tom' moment:

     

     

    Can’t stand her but that’s kinda brilliant. She certainly knows how to produce an unforgettable reality-TV moment and self-promote, for better or for worse.

    Could be a matter of personal comfort for the actors.
    I mean Steve Burton - who does zip for me but who is obviously in great shape - hates shirtless scenes and does very few of them so maybe the others in this list also have an understanding they'd rather not do shirtless scenes.
    And maybe otoh Jason Thompson is an exhib and since no one seems to care about Joshua Morrow anymore, someone's gotta give them the quota of mannipples so he volunteers.

    As I said, the ripped look is not my favorite but I gotta say it is stupid not to have featured Burgi's body yet. I mean, if only to sand off the 15 years age difference off a little.

    Could be. It reads as somewhat puzzling. But these things are subjective. These are soaps, after all, and shirtless hunks have been part of the deal for as long as I can remember. JT isn’t bad, but he doesn’t exactly scratch the same itches as Shemar Moore, Don Diamont, Nick Scotti, Josh Morrow, J. Eddie PECK, Scott Reeves, Eddie Cibrian, Thad Luckinbill upon his last return, KSJ, early Doug Davidson, Philip Moon, CLB, Justin Hartley, et al. (Or Ron Carlivati’s parade of himbos on DAYS, Carter/Thomas/Finn on B&B, Drew/Brando/Curtis/Chase/Dante on GH—although GH has become slightly more demure lately, save for Cameron Mathison’s bruised/bloodied torso on constant display lately.)

    Yeah. Still not sure about this either. I know Kidman can 'transform' herself but all I can think of is Bewitched and how bad that was when I hear she's playing Lucille Ball. LOL. I'm trying to keep an open mind as, of course, this movie is very different than that hot garbage.

     

    I feel like for movies like this they go for a 'star' instead of finding the right actor to embody the person. But who knows, she may surprise us? I like the tone of the promo but I'm just not sure. I think it was more 'highlight the trademark red hair' more than hiding Nicole's face but it could be both. I mean, it's Nicole Kidman playing Lucille Ball. Hence why they probably could have gone for someone else.

    Yeah, someone like Debra Messing probably wouldn’t secure international investors (or Oscar buzz), but NK would. I’ve heard other people suggest Cate Blanchett.

    I don't have a body type and I don't mind most men shirtless for eye candy so I am all for it. 

    It is funny though to compare with what he looked like shirtless in 2008: 


    For the record he was an attractive man either way as far as I am concerned but I guess twelve years in daytime has nudged him towards investing in a gym membership.

    Well at least he was "taught" to wax early on.
    Sigh @ soap male body image standards.
     

    It’s just funny that I seem to see him in shirtless scenes far more than more conventionally ripped/jacked guys on the show. They do show Bryton shirtless a good bit, but not Sean Dominic, who has the best body on the show IMO, because they don’t write much for Nate, and they don’t tend to do the gratuitous nudity like the other soaps. (Y&R certainly did in the past.) Michael Mealor is gone, and they refuse to sexualize Richard Burgi, who’s in amazing shape.

    I don’t even remember what Adam looks like with his shirt off because they made him into a eunuch. I’m tired of the coitus interruptus with him and Sally.

  6. They polled 206 TV experts from 43 countries. The shows had to start after 2000, which excludes shows like The Sopranos. Here’s the top 10:

    1          The Wire (2002-2008)
    2          Mad Men (2007-2015)
    3          Breaking Bad (2008-2013)
    4          Fleabag (2016-2019)
    5          Game of Thrones (2011-2019)
    6          I May Destroy You (2020)
    7          The Leftovers (2014-2017)
    8          The Americans (2013-2018)
    9          The Office (UK) (2001-2003)
    10        Succession (2018-)

    Could The View environment BTS be Toxic? Sure. Did Meghan and her attitude add to that Toxicity?, Yes. Will she ever see herself as part of that toxicity problem? NO!!!!

    Indeed. The View is a well-documented hellhole, but a five-year-old could tell Meghan was a huge part of the problem during her tenure. Partially because she acted like a five-year-old.
