MTV on Ozzy’s crash: “We don’t want [the show] to become General Hospital.”
MTV isn’t sure whether or not they’ll include the aftermath of Ozzy’s ATV crash on the next season of The Osbournes. A heartless bastard “insider” tells MSNBC’s Jeanette Walls (second item), “We already went through Sharon Osbourne’s recovery from cancer. We don’t want [the show] to become ‘General Hospital.’” That bastard also says Ozzy’s recent revelation that he was high on meds during season two “sort of undermines the humor when you realize that all this doddering and stammering isn’t the after affects of drugs he took twenty years ago. A spokesperson for MTV is a bit more kind, saying that “whether or not they are actually filming is something that MTV would decide with the family. Clearly we want Ozzy to get better. That comes first.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
