Dear Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Awards Committee,
I am writing to inform you that you've made a huge oversight in the Best Actor in a Drama Series category this year. While I am sure the gentleman from Breaking Bad, Mad Men, True Detective, and House of Cards were terrific, they could never match the incredible breadth of work performed by Dean McDermott from True Tori this year. It's one thing to pretend you are a meth dealer or a dishonest Republican congressman, but the commitment it takes to cheat on the daughter of Aaron Spelling on a reality show is a whole other ballgame. That is straight up Actor's Studio quality. Dean McDermott took Lifetime Network viewers on an emotional roller coaster as he navigated the rough waters of reality television marital destruction. The other nominees had a team of writers. Deano just had his large caveman head with his sweaty body perm and soap opera reactions. You want melodramatic realness? You could have been tuning in every Tuesday at 8/7c. For example:
When pushed in his rental home kitchen by his former mistress and now wife about how his careless attitude toward ruining her trust: “Inside I feel like a rotten, twisted tree and all the leaves are dead off it.”
To their marriage therapist who secretly asked herself what has become of her life: “It’s not like I was looking for sex or I was horny or anything — T and I, our relationship, our sex life is solid —I have a brain that wants to kill me. I have a brain that wants me dead.”
In a revealing moment about his inability to be satisfied by the women who pushed his four kids out of her body. "I'm insatiable. Sex was an escape, just like drugs and alcohol….We would have sex once every two weeks. It wasn't fantastic."
In what will undoubtedly be seen as one of the most romantic moments in television history Dean performed a song in a neighbor's backyard with the help of a friend and his guitar. "Broken trust for a dance with lust / Heartache and sorrow's the proof," he sang. "I'm sorry forever / It's never enough / The pain I would take sets you free / You're the one thing for certain that I've ever loved / And the one thing I can't go without."
And then his nail polish covered fingers wrapped their way around hers and then looked at each other with the confidence that there could be another season. So, yeah, you guys messed up.

Adam Richman, the star of the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food, has been fired (or at least his new show with the network will NOT air) after an Instagram rant that has gotten him in trouble.
He got into a spat with a woman after he Instagrammed a picture saying, “Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row tailor over a year ago. Think I’m gonna need to take it in a little #thinspiration.”
To which a woman replied, the term “glorifies negative media self-imagery that being thin is better as opposed to any other body style.”
He replied: “DILLIGAF,” which means, “Does it look like I give a f—k?” And to another person he said, “Oh eat a bag of s—t, dummy. No apology is coming. If it inspires someone to attain a healthy thinner body then that was what it was meant to do. Only f–k up it seems was your dad’s choice to go without a condom.”
To another he said “grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you.”
He quickly deleted the comments and wrote and apology to ABC: “I’ve long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight,” said Richman, adding that he’s sorry for his “inexcusable remarks.”
Do you think he went to far? Was he right to apologize?
