RAVE of the week: ‘13 Nights of Halloween’ to begin
As mid-October arrives, it’s officially that time of year again – time for Halloween.
While creative costumes and festive decorations are important, there is no better indicator of the haunting season than ABC Family’s annual “13 Nights of Halloween” TV event.
Beginning tonight, ABC Family kicks off its 13th consecutive televised event at 8 p.m., with a Halloween-themed “Pretty Little Liars” episode.
Other haunted inspired flicks include “The Addams Family,” “The Goonies,” “The Sixth Sense,” “The Haunted Mansion” and “Beetlejuice.”
Of course, “Hocus Pocus,” the mother of all Halloween films, is also in the line-up. As three witches brought back from the dead, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy’s antics are sure to bring laughs.
For those who enjoy feeling scared, ABC Family will also air episodes from reality TV series such as “Scariest Places on Earth” and “Legendary Haunts.”
While it’s possible to grow out of trick-or-treating, the childhood love for these classic Halloween films never disappears.
So for the next two weeks, sit back, sip on a pumpkin spice latte and enjoy ABC Family’s “13 Nights of Halloween.”
WRECK of the week: Humphries adds little to Dash clan
Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kris Humphries has been as over-hyped as the royal wedding.
While countless magazine and TV interviews have painted them as the perfect couple, reality TV has done just the opposite.
If you found yourself wondering who Mr. Humphries was when he first stepped onto the scene as Kim’s new love interest, you weren’t the only one.
Humphries played for the New Jersey Nets, but recently became an “unrestricted free agent.”
As his basketball ties loosened, the lock and chain Kardashian placed on him was tighter than ever. Whenever the two were photographed together, Humphries was always tailing behind his girlfriend like a puppy dog.
Not only is the NBA player needy, but he’s also rude, as seen in this season’s “Keeping up with the Kardashians” episodes.
Prior to the wedding, Khloe labeled Humphries as an “opportunist.”
No one had heard of Humphries before he was attached to the Kardashian name. Kim makes millions of dollars each year, and sitting on bench doesn’t bring Humphries up to the same standard.
Sorry Kim, but this marriage seems short-lived. Hopefully you made him sign a pre-nup.
