"Bachelor" fans will remember Desiree as the chick who lost out on her rose after her brother, Nate, berated Lowe for being a "playboy," among other not-so-nice things. Although I agree that dating 20-some-odd women at once qualifies someone for playboy status, Lowe also publicly proclaimed he was a born-again virgin, making it difficult for him to truly make Hugh Hefner proud. Then again, Hefner, to my knowledge, dated only seven women at once, so maybe Lowe is on to some next level of loving that I'm not even aware of.
Now that Desiree is doing the same thing as Sean, I wonder how Nate feels about the whole sitch. Is it too much to ask for some A.C.-based family drama?
* Hey, maybe "The Bachelorette" crew will run into Joy Behar, who is hanging out at Revel with some gal pals this week, including appointments at the Bask Spa. She needs the R&R after announcing that she's leaving "The View" after 16 years on the daytime talker.
* In other local TV news, Jordan Poole, better known around Philly's club scene as DJ Royale, will appear on the third season of VH1's "Master of the Mix," premiering Monday at 10 p.m. Poole isn't the first Philly face to make it to "Master of the Mix."
"I definitely boast and rep the Philly aspect of deejaying as far as my style of play," Temple grad Poole told me. "I was a proud ambassador of Philly and wanted to make that part of my story line."
Royale will host an after-viewing party on Monday at the Ten Six Club (1709 Walnut St.) to celebrate his reality debut. Check it out at 11 p.m.
Rich Medina was a contestant on the first season, and new momma Amber Rose served as a judge last season.
Pretty in Pink
Kijafa Vick, wife of some dude named Michael, and her business partner, Blair Sandlain, are teaming up once again to help some deserving girls glam it up for their prom. The proprietors of PNK Elephant (504 South St.) continue their prom-dress giveaway for the second year in a row through their nonprofit, the PNK Dress Foundation.
Making girls feel like the goddesses they are is important to Vick and Sandlain. Prom is "like a rite of passage to becoming a woman," Vick told me, reminiscing about her first prom with her high-school sweetheart, a student at Roman Catholic. She wore a lavender dress that was modeled off a Halle Berry ensemble. Sandlain, on the other hand, went with a "big and foofy" yellow dress, counteracting her normally lower-key style.
Think you know a girl who deserves to get dolled up for her special day? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and state your case. One truly deserving girl will even win an ultimate package, including hair, makeup and car service to the prom. Vick and Sandlain are also taking donations, so if you have a gently used dress hanging your closet, send it on over to the ladies. You'll get 30 percent off a PNK Elephant purchase.
Next year, Vick and Sandlain want to look beyond prom for a fundraiser that helps kids get basic school supplies, like pens and notebooks.
Director Shane Carruth will be in town Wednesday night and Thursday to raise money for the Philadelphia Film Society, which is trying to revamp the Roxy theater into an art-house/repertory cinema. Carruth's debut film, the low-budget "Primer," is a must-watch for shoestring-budget filmmakers. Carruth will screen his new, fresh-off-Sundance flick "Upstream Color" and do a Q&A with the audience. The screening starts at 8 p.m., is open to the public and costs $10. Visit filmadelphia.org for more info.
