In LA, the truth of 'reality' is revealed

Loosely based on the author Lauren Conrad's own experiences in the MTV hit series The Hills, the story unfolds to reveal the good, the bad and the ugly of what really goes on behind the scenes of a reality show - from the stars having to film their entrances to locations repeatedly to get them 'just right' to the producers' reactions when things don't go according to plan.

Christina Aguilera: "Bionic" Album Review

It was disappointing not to hear Christina Aguilera's vocal powers used to their full potential in certain songs, particularly Elastic Love. Although the song is creative, it relies almost purely on technology to create a consistent melody.

Talking Balls Jr.:β€œNo head-butting. No hair-pulling. No biting, no spitting, no eye-gouging.”

Turns out, being a professional fighter requires a number of elements that would serve you well both in and out of the ring, such as an unwavering sense of composure, the discerning ability to leave it all in the ring, and the drive to give your absolute 100 percent to come out on top. (In this case, probably physically.)

About

Michelle Toh

Hi!

I’m a journalist at CNNMoney in Hong Kong.

Here at CNN, I produce and program multimedia content, write about business news in Asia and work with our newsrooms worldwide to present our reporting in different ways and reach as many people as possible across platforms.

Before joining CNN, I was the Hong Kong editor of Fortune Magazine.

I was born in Malaysia and raised in Hong Kong. I'm also a proud graduate of USC's Annenberg School of Journalism (fight on!), and member of the Asian American Journalists Association.

My work, which has been featured in outlets including TIME, USA Today and Harper's Bazaar, has allowed me to interview newsmakers from all walks of life, from Hong Kong billionaire Lui Che Woo to unaccompanied child migrants in the U.S. to one of the world’s youngest female VCs.

In my spare time, I enjoy checking things off what I call the #GreatAmericanBucketList, learning new skills and spending an exorbitant amount of time on Instagram.
