The Lushworthy Gal’s Biggest Dating Turn-Off Courtesy Of Angela Yee

Personally, that’s kind of a turn-off for me as well. And now that I think of it “kind of” is a bit of an understatement. I have nothing against people that don’t drink, but I really need a “dinner and drinks” kind of guy.

Also, I’ve been scouring the net trying to find a contact for Ms. Yee but with no luck. I really want to start a celebrity drink recipe column (think “The Diddle Skittle”) and I think she’d be the perfect person to kick it off. So if anyone has any leads that would be awesome!

Shark Week Just Got A Little More Exciting, Introducing The Shark Week Drinking Game

I know Shark Week hardly needs any more excitement, but come on you really can’t pass up on the chance to make a drinking game out of this week-long Discovery Channel extravaganza. Alright to take part in the Shark Week Drinking Game you’re going to need a shot glass for your shots and a cup full of the mixed drink of your choice or a beer. Most drinking games usually consist of just shots, but with some of these you’re likely to end up taking A LOT of shots so instead we’re gonna mix it up a bit with shots and sips of your mixed drink.

1. Kick off with an introductory shot dedicated to Samuel L. Jackson’s character in “Deep Blue Sea.”

2. Every time the movie “Jaws” is mentioned take a sip of your mixed drink.

3. The first person to audibly express their excitement at a shark jumping out of the water takes two shots. After that take it down to one shot.

4. Take a shot anytime you see a commercial from a company that thinks they’re Australian (i.e. Fosters, Outback Steakhouse). With a high number of sharks in Australia you’re likely to see tons of commercials from these kind of establishments.

5. Take a shot anytime they show B-roll footage of a child or children playing innocently on the beach.

6. Take a sip of your mixed drink every time you see a seal, fake seal, or group of seals.

7. Whenever someone gives advice on getting away from a shark (punching it in the nose, hitting it in the eye, etc.) take a shot.

7 Lushes, One City: The “Bad Girls Club New Orleans” Episode One Review

I received a press copy of the first episode of “Bad Girls Club New Orleans” over the weekend and I thought to myself, “I sure wish this was relevant enough to review on Lushworthy.” Then I came to the obvious realization that the Bad Girls are the biggest group of lushes on television and that a review on here is actually pretty suitable. So here goes…

For the past season or two “Bad Girls Club” has kicked off their season premiere with an extremely chaotic scene that usually ends with some kind of physical confrontation. You get all excited about the mayhem you’re going to see in the first episode and then they hit you with the “17 Days Earlier” and rewind to the girls arriving (peacefully) at their mansion. And they’ve yet again stuck with that formula for this season. I’m personally not a fan of it. I feel like they show you all this action in the beginning knowing that the rest of the episode won’t be nearly as action-packed. There were of course a few crazy moments in the episode, but nothing like what you see in the first few minutes.

If I could sum up the season premiere using just a few words they’d be crazy Creole, voodoo dolls, Shawty Lo, and major pizza disrespect. Once you’ve seen the episode you’ll know exactly what I’m referring to. Now moving on to our seven lushes…

Why does it seem like there’s always at least two Bad Girls who hail from New York City? And they all manage to be quite crazy. Well, you’ve got two of those this season. You’ve got a “Goofy Gangster,” an intimidating lesbian chic, a go-go dancer, and a few other nutcases. There’s also one life-sized voodoo doll that I’m pretty sure one of the Bad Girls thinks is a real person (bless her poor, confused little soul). In past seasons there’s been quite a few girls who ended up leaving the show before it concludes, but after watching this first episode there’s only one Bad Girl that I think would voluntarily leave the house.

Overall the episode proved to be very entertaining in that typical “these girls are all completely out of their minds” way that has become so familiar when it comes to the “Bad Girls Club” series.

Be sure to check out the “Bad Girls Club New Orleans” season premiere on August 1 at 9/8c on Oxygen.
