AHS Hotel: “Mommy” RECAP

Last night’s episode of American Horror Story: Hotel was jam packed, and if you haven’t seen it yet, read our live recap below. We tried to avoid spoilers, but we got too excited at some parts. Here is our recap with The Sassy Gay:

———————————————————————————————————-

lady-gaga-ahs-role

@Hollywd_Heroine

Who is he talking to? Ohhhh Evan Peters. Do u think Evan Peters was the drill ass man?

@thesassygay

Oh yea most likely. Tristan is not a good time right now. Thank god for black and white FOR REALS

@Hollywd_Heroine

Friggin’ Naomi Campbell…she’s a bad actress

@thesassygay

Ahhh he’s a ghost man

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah yeah

@thesassygay

You were right, he can’t leave. But Tristan can see him why?

@Hollywd_Heroine

He called him, like if he’s in the room and you call him he’ll show up

@thesassygay

Like Edward Mordrake. Okay, I’m really interested to see how this woman [Chloe Sevigny] becomes relevant – maybe to help all the kids in the hotel?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah same she definitely is going to play a big part, she has a voice over? That’s interesting

@thesassygay

Yeah even the detective doesn’t have one

@Hollywd_Heroine

Soulmate? She’s talking about her son. Ryan Murphy has mommy issues for real

@thesassygay

Yeah, she’s happy to be a mother. LOL or very intrigued by the idea of having kids, being a maternal figure. Poor girl Scarlett is telling the truth, we need to listen to kids more

@Hollywd_Heroine

She should’ve told them a more believable story, coffins in an empty pool? Come on girl

@thesassygay

UGH can’t wait for Campbell to peace out – she is AWFUL!

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL seriously, the irony is really boring ‘ugh models’ like we get it, you’re a model in real life okay

@thesassygay

Lmao in this she’s an “art curator” okay please don’t stretch the truth…and whooop there it is!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Wait so that guy [Max Greenfield] just lives in the mattress?

@thesassygay

Something about that scene made me giggle

@Hollywd_Heroine

Has she [Naomi Campbell] not slept in a bad yet? She’s been there for like two weeks now

@thesassygay

I know she’s dead and bloody but wtf just happened??

@Hollywd_Heroine

Jess B. heard everything!

@thesassygay

OMG EWWW. So Evan Peters can’t leave the hotel so he can’t be doing these murders. He must have a proxy

@Hollywd_Heroine

No it’s definitely not Evan Peters, there’s more layers to this story. WTF is happening to Max Greenberg how convenient…so he can’t talk now

@thesassygay

Of course he peaces out, like was that necessary?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Lol yeah right when he’s about to expose the Hotel I can’t even look at Paulson after that teeth scene

@thesassygay

Sarah Paulson is my favveeee!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Wes Bentley with handcuffs…ALL DAY everyday!

@thesassygay

Honestly Matt Bomer sounds like a baby

@Hollywd_Heroine

I hate that, such a weak excuse blaming his mother

@thesassygay

Daddy issues

@Hollywd_Heroine

Is that Matt? Where is he? Skid Row?

@thesassygay

Ew, that’s gross Matt Bomer, uh oh he’s about to get, ANGELAAAAAA!!!

@Hollywd_Heroine

HAAAAAAY!!

@thesassygay

YAAS QUEEN YAAAAAS!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Angela is baaaaaaaaaaack!

@thesassygay

LMAO she’s like  I don’t want you to be at home

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL she’s like ya you need to go. I feel like he’s [Wes Bentley] going to become a killer

@thesassygay

For sure

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s on the edge of glory [wink]

@thesassygay

Oooh, chateau margot, he is too gay to function LMAO and they just called him out on it. hahahaha

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s so dreamy

@thesassygay

I like Gaga, I think she’s doing a good job

@Hollywd_Heroine

She’s turning gay men into straight. Woah

@thesassygay

Lol if anyone can do it, it would be GAGA

@Hollywd_Heroine

Bernie Madoff?!? lol

@thesassygay

He’s in this storyline!?!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Oh she’s going to marry/kill (maybe f***) dreamy gay rich guy

@thesassygay

Right right I figured that’s her game. OMG Wes Bentley is pulling a Lamar Odom ‘I’m so sick please stay, please stay’

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG STOP. It’s too soon LOL. But still so good

@thesassygay

She’ll see Holdon now

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah he remembers her? OMG no Kathy Bates!

@thesassygay

Poor Kathy!

@Hollywd_Heroine

“I want nothing more than the dark silence of death itself” Great line.

@thesassygay

OMG Angela really is Beyonce

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG is she a vampire to? LMAO She Buffy?

@thesassygay

He has the power of eternal life. OMG I LOVE THIS SHE IS MY HEROO

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL she’s amazing

@thesassygay

lezbihonest

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG GAGA IS INSANE. That’s the cutest thing…them over the years!

@thesassygay

Elevator evolution

@Hollywd_Heroine

Ok I’m in love, who is this DMX wannabe?

@thesassygay

Let’s see those eyes up close and personal

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s DMX but hotter, oh f***

@thesassygay

Omg noooo, the hottie rapper

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah!

@thesassygay

She’s all about revenge, this is COVEN all over again! Come on

@Hollywd_Heroine

But it’s working, this is the game

@thesassygay

I really like Liz Taylor, she slays. Kathy Bates is passed out on drugs?

@Hollywd_Heroine

This sh** is happening too quickly, where was his epiphany all along?

@thesassygay

I’m glad she said it, because I’m like that is some type of irony

@Hollywd_Heroine

So she’s going to live forever now?

@thesassygay

Yeah, it was a good episode. Thankfully it wasn’t as gruesome or raunchy. I was excited to see Angela Bassett come THRU.But for reals, I think it’s a little dumb that she’s like “imma get back at her ‘cuz she got back at me” it truly is Coven all over again “someone working on the inside, I’mma kill her babies” i feel like she says the exact same line in Coven about the girls on Halloween night. There are so many stories moving at the same time, I don’t even know what the main through line is anymore, it’s like little pockets in each room –but it definitely works for this season

@Hollywd_Heroine

Agreed. I felt like that storyline in Coven worked though, so I’m excited, and realistically those children need to be saved so I’m glad there’s someone actually doing something about it. Or not, she might kill them so we’ll see

AHS: HOTEL RECAP!

The Hollywood Heroine teamed up with fellow blogger The Sassy Gay to cover off the first episode of American Horor Story:Hotel. Here’s what we came up with.

ahs hotel,lady gaga,ryan murphy

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Okay so the premiere of American Horror Story Hotel premiered last night with a 90 minute episode, Sass what did you think of it?? Was Gaga all you wanted and more??

@thesassygay

Lol, well HH I know Gaga is central but I don’t think it’s all about Gaga

@Hollywd_Heroine:

No it definitely isn’t, and we saw a whole slew of new characters that are all so cray cray in their own way. Sarah Paulson plays a dead prostitute junkie – Kathy Bates plays the hotel’s front desk clerk AND Matt Bomer’s mom. Matt Bomer plays Lady Gaga’s man, Lady Gaga plays Queen B bloodsucker and Wes Bentley plays the handsome L.A.P.D cop that might unravel this entire thing. So let’s start right off the top, what did you think of the Hotel Cortez??

@thesassygay

I enjoyed it so far. I think that its a definite contender to be one of the better seasons AHS has produced. (Let’s be real FreakShow is defintiely at the bottom of that list) What did you think about the blood sucking aspect anyway?

@Hollywd_Heroine:

We were talking about this before and right off the top Hotel had such a different feel compared to Freak Show and Coven, this season is definitely darker and grimier and bloodier and just all around fu**ed up. Having said that, Hotel Cortez is going to be the perfect backdrop for all this madness. It seems like he’s blending in all these different concepts from different horror films – like the little kid similar to the one that’s in The Shining, and then you have Gaga whose basically a modern day Ryan Murphy version of a vampire, which is really cool right? Minus the sharp teeth, I’m really excited to see where that’s going to go.

@thesassygay

Yea, I’m not really sure if I’m 100% down for the blood sucking aspect to be honest, but it does drive the story – as we see in the first episode

@Hollywd_Heroine:

I mean whatever drives the story forward I’m down for, what did you think of her acting??

@thesassygay

K, I’m glad you asked because I’ve been thinking about it, it may be too soon to say it, but I think I’m gonna go there anyway. I kind of was hoping for a little bit more…crazy? Her character is very demure, well spoken, and just a tiny bit quirky from what we see I think I would have liked to see her go BIG and wild and free. She’s a blood sucking, life giving, slave owning, boss bitch. She can do whatever the f*** she wants

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Realistically, what did we expect? It’s pretty much her first ever acting gig, I don’t mind the character I feel like she’s going to turn up real quick in the season, and I’m also sort of happy that we have her instead of Jessica Lange, that momma matriarch thing was getting old real quick.

@thesassygay

I just think that she’s already set the tone for what side of her she intends to emote in her character and it isn’t quite what I had envisioned. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking for an over the top hokey character, just a little more quirk perhaps. I just think that she’s already set the tone for what side of her she intends to emote in her character and it isn’t quite what I had envisioned.

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Yep, let’s remember it isn’t our show no matter how much we would like to run this show. I really enjoyed Wes Bentley’s character, having a cop in the show with a little side drama is very L.A Noir and I’m wondering how they’re going to tie that all into the Hotel, because I feel like he’s crazy himself, like he has a mind of a serial killer right?

@thesassygay

He’s got that piercing look too

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Oh he definitely looks the part I’m already in love with him

@thesassygay

Lol, oh I know. I’m down for Matt Bomer – let’s be real Ryan Murphy gets to cast all the hotties whenever he wants and they’ll all say yes

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Ryan Murphy is gonna be like the Oprah of TV creators…I know you liked that jawline for daaaaaays. But seriously, who’s dead and who’s alive?? Because let’s remember that Kathy Bates pushed Sarah Paulson’s character out the window, and then Matt Bomer’s junkie ass killed himself, or Gaga killed him, so there are some dead people and there are some people that are very much still alive

@thesassygay

Yeah, I definitely think she’s some sort of immortal queen. Iris (Kathy Bates) seems alive, but she could’ve sold her soul for Gaga to save her son’s life. Lot’s of questions, not many answers yet. What are you’re most burning questions you’d want to discover by the end of the season?

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Ooooh I like that theory! I don’t know if I have any burning questions yet I’m just really excited for this show to get even more fu**ed up. Like where’s Angela Bassett’s character? Is Chloe Sevigny really going to play a boring housewife? And OMG what are they going to do for the Halloween episode? Okay, so I guess I do have a lot of questions…

@thesassygay

Definitely, I’m interested to learn a bit more about everybody from the first episode, forget the rest of the star studded cast we are yet to see. ALSO we do see a tie in already with another season of AHS!

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Yes right everyone keeps talking about these damn connections to previous seasons. And we see the real estate agent from season 1 “Murder House”, do you think anything major is going to happen with that connection?

@thesassygay

The Black Dahlia

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Who was that??

@thesassygay

Not only was it one of the most infamous unsolved murders in LA history, its gruesome story of a budding starlet being found completely cut in half. I’m sure they’ll make a connection with the murderer either staying there or the ghosts of past murders being housed in this haunted hotel. Just like in murder house

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Oh wow I don’t even remember. I’ve read that the connection might be Jessica Lange’s fourth child who we never meet in the murder house season…so there’s that to look forward to!

@thesassygay

Jessiccaaaaa!

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Anything else we can cover without giving too much away? I feel like people just need to watch the episode. It was super entertaining!

@thesassygay

Yea check that ish out. This + Scream Queens = turnt up Fall TV season

———————————————————————————–

Tune into FX on Wednesday nights for all new episodes of American Horror Story:Hotel

 

 

TV Fall Preview

It’s about that time of the year when all the good shows are back in business (exclude: Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black) with a full schedule lined up, it won’t be a surprise when the streets seem a little emptier.

Here are some of the upcoming shows we’re excited about and when you can expect them to premiere:

fox,scream queens

Scream Queens (Sept 22)

The only show on this list that’s a series premiere this season. It is the highly anticipated new series by AHS creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. There’s a murder, there’s a college campus and a bitchy sorority, mixed in with a star studded cast and we’ve got a potential hit on our bloody hands. Look out for Nick Jonas, Emma Roberts and Ariana Grande.

How to Get Away with Murder (Sept 24)

Last season’s explosive and shocking finale left us all wondering who dunn’ it…again! How do these people keep killing people and making it all so shocking? I’m going to blame Shonda Rhimes because she’s the genius behind this show (also Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy) I really appreciated the storytelling of the first season, it’s such a smart show and very thought out. Once you figure out what’s a flashback and what’s not…you’re good to go.

Empire (Sept 23)

empire,FOX,

Arguably the most popular show of last season, Empire follows Lucious Lyon (sort of a Puff Daddy or Russell Simmons persona) as he continues to run his empire with his three sons and cray cray ex-wife Cookie played by Taraji P. Henson. Although the show’s on FOX, okay I really shouldn’t say that because they brought us The O.C and that was the greatest gift from God. But for a primetime show that doesn’t have a big budget like HBO or Showtime, it’s pretty freakin’ entertaining! The writing is borderline soap opera but still fun to watch. And the music is on point people! Also, the drama is always hot and Cookie is always crazy.

Homeland (Oct 4)

I feel like Homeland continuously blows minds, and it has been since the first season. Homeland has evolved into really, a completely different story and I love that the writers were able to do that in the aftermath of a major character death. There is definitely a challenge in keeping this show as entertaining as it is. It takes place in present day, within the confines of reality. It’s not in a mystical world, it doesn’t depend on zombies or dragons to bring that greater than life feel. It’s straight up real world drama, politics, war…and motherhood. Which leads me to Claire Danes, who is phenomenal in this series. I honestly believe she’s crazy in real life, because nobody can play crazy that good and still be faking it.

The Affair (Oct 4)

the-affair

One of my favourite picks from last seasons line up. The Affair also proved that HBO and Showtime are full out going head to head bringing us the most diverse and entertaining shows on our screens. The Affair follows 2 couples, the man from the city falls in love with the girl from Montauk, that sort of thing. But here’s what they did differently, and what makes the show that much better. You know how everyone has their own version of events, or you notice something that the next person doesn’t notice. The Affair cuts between ‘his story’ and ‘her story’ one coming after the other in the episode. They’re never being juxtaposed. And you notice things in his version that never happened in hers. (eg. In his version she is much more aggressive and wants to pursue him even though he’s a married man. In her version he’s the pursuer and she’s holding back) It’s a very unique way of telling the story, even though we’ve seen our fare share of affairs on screen.

American Horror Story: Hotel (Oct 7)

Lady Gaga kicks off the new season of AHS playing a matriarchal figure in the season, aka the boss ass bitch. Which comes at a good time as our usual ‘mama dearest’ role was played by Jessica Lange who left after last season. So what do we know about all the characters this season? Not a whole lot, but we do know there are a ton of new actors filling up roles. Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett are back again, and the whole season is taking place in a hotel. Hello, The Shining, this season is going to be crazy. But I said that about last years Freak Show and it turned out to be my least favourite.

The Walking Dead (Oct 11)

If you haven’t been watching Fear the Walking Dead you’re missing out on a whole new experience in zombie watching. It is such a different show, the world is completely different because we get to see what went down before all the zombies. It’s been nice watching Fear as it’s become like the appetizer dish to the full course meal that is The Walking Dead. So apparently everything’s going down this season, Morgan’s back and those wolf people know about Alexandria. So yeah it’s probably going to be a crazy season. Just please don’t kill Beth, oh right you guys already did that and ruined everything.

Kingdom (Oct 14)

kingdom-season2

If anyone wants to see Nick Jonas perma sweating and half naked this show is for you! But for real, this show has an amazing first season, taking place in an MMA gym in Venice Beach. Trust me just watch it, the drama is all good.

 

So what do you guys think? Will you give any of these shows a shot? Let us know what you think or what you think we should be watching this fall.
