“Sunset Tan” Rises Again

Posted by RabbitEars Summertime is around the corner, but if you don’t actually enjoy the sunshine yourself, you may appreciate instead basking in the rays of your TV screen as the incredibly popular reality series Sunset Tan comes back. Like persistent melanoma, the E! hit about a Hollywood tanning salon will return this summer for its second season, but today’s announcement did not specify when. What has been made clear, though, is that more of the fluffiness and superficiality will be on hand.

No “Sunset” For “Tan”

* The hit — and hysterical — E! reality series Sunset Tan returns with oh-so-superficial new episodes on August 19 at 10:30pm ET/PT, right after the equally fluffy Girls Next Door. In these six episodes, tanning salon masterminds Jeff Bozz and Devin Haman meet with George Maloof (frankly, all of these names sound phony) to begin work on a new salon at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. Of course, the Olly Girls — the only women who could possibly make the Girls Next Door look like intellectuals by comparison — are back, and are ridiculously asked to start taking […]
