Reality television isn't all housewives and hip-hop and Kardashian krazy (thank goodness for small favors!. There are some lesser followed, but equally entertaining reality shows that will be making their way back onto your guide channel after becoming hugely popular in their first seasons.
Both Breaking Amish and King Of The Nerds will be returning after stellar ratings. TLC will be renewing its hit which followed a group of Amish and Mennonite young people who were supposedly shunned by their ultra conservative religious communities as they navigated the mean streets of New York City. Likewise, TBS will be bringing back it's wildly popular King Of The Nerds reality competition.
Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak Biermannis ditching the last few weeks of winter for a sunny vacation with her husband Kroy Biermann and her four children. I can't say I blame her one bit. While sunning and funning, the group is celebrating daughter Brielle's sixteenth birthday which is today. Happy birthday Brielle!
We all know it wouldn't be a Kim getaway if there wasn't a little bit of drama, and this trip was no different. Poor Kim had a luggage mishap, and her most important piece went missing. I'll give you three guesses as to what was inside…and the first two don't count!
It could definitely be argued that Shahs of Sunset'sGolnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi did not get the fairest of shakes on the most recent season of the Bravo hit. The tiny spitfire was on the receiving end of some serious NFL action, and I'm not talking about professional football! After an altercation with cast mate Asa Soltan Rahmati, things seemed to spiral out of control for the group of friends, with everyone feeling forced to take sides. GG's romantic life was front and center as well, as her relationship with Omid Kalantari heated up and the pair became engaged off screen before calling it quits.
Thankfully, GG was kind enough to set the record straight in an interview with Reality Tea, and I think you'll find her answers to be honest and heartfelt. She certainly isn't one to mince words, and she dishes on everything from her status with Omid to her favorite part of the season. GG also discusses her goals for the future as well as what you didn't get to see on Shahs.
I'll be honest, it's still a little weird for me to see the majority of the ladies on Mob Wives actually being nice to one another. It's almost got me wondering when the other shoe is going to drop! Case in point? Drita D'avanzo and Karen Gravano not only went out for drinks, but they shared a spa day instead of a smackdown! Big Ang is typically drama-free, but Ramona Rizzo showed her softer side, and Renee Graziano is working on a more positive life. Carla Facciolo did get a bit confrontational with her ex while meeting his new girlfriend, andLove Majewskitalked a lot about stabbing people, so I guess some old habits do die hard.
Last night's episode begins as a shocked Drita is telling Big Ang and Carla that Lee is now out of jail. She is giddy like a school girl talking about what she fed Lee when she first saw him. Gag. Drita wants advice from Carla and Ang about what she should do when Lee is finished with the halfway house.
Karen, Love, and Ramona are hitting up a charity art event, and Ramona shares with Karen that Lee is free. Karen wishes him the best and is glad that his girls will have their father back, but as far as she's concerned, she wants nothing to do with him. She's finally at a good place with Drita, and the women wonder if Drita will take him back after his stint in the halfway house.
Renee has returned from rehab, and she's excited to talk to Drita and learn that Lee is home. She wants to get all of the ladies together to celebrate her new lease on life.
Is it just me or should Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Kyle Richards just give up on her Diddylicious white party? She should just hang it up and call it a day. It had a good run. Whether her husband is getting hit on or her biffle Taylor Armstrong is left in tears (or turned away at the door thanks to her sue-happy husband), the party is merely a venue to hash out drama while extras dance by the pool.
Of course, this season's party was no different, except Taylor got to finally be out of the insanity (relatively speaking…she's still bat shiz crazy). This go-round the drama involved the law suit rumors and surrogacy secrets between Adrienne Maloof and Brandi Glanville. In Adrienne's corner was now ex-husband Paul Nassif while Brandi had best friend Jennifer Giminez with her for support. While the participants managed to keep the yelling, name-calling, and accusations to a minimum (for this crew at least), I can't help but wonder if there was anything we didn't get to see…
Want to ride in style like only orange guidettes can do? Well, now you can! Dust off those leopard print seat covers and the neon rearview mirror furry handcuffs, and get ready to bid on the Jersey Shore'sNicole "Snooki" Polizzi's Cadillac Escalade. Since she no longer needs it to get to and from the Shore, it can be yours if you play your cards right!
The tiny new mom is getting rid of the two year old luxury SUV, but you've only got roughly fifty hours left to take advantage of the sale. All you need is $1000 once you've been deemed the highest bidder, and you've got seven whole days to come up with the remainder of the sales price once the auction is closed. I mean, how cool would it be to get to say you're driving Snooki's former car? Who wouldn't want to drive around in a vehicle with hot pink accents and tire rims? Dare to dream, my friends, dare to dream.
I've got some "when pigs fly" gossip for you. It may be highly unlikely, but it's certainly fun to entertain, especially if you're a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan. Casting buzz for season four puts none other than Brandi Glanville's Twitter nemesis in the running for the show. That's right, y'all! Some folks are claiming that LeAnn Rimes will be singing her way onto the scene.
Even more unbelievable? The same folks who want LeAnn on the show are claiming that Brandi is her biggest advocate! I don't know about you, but I just don't see this coming to fruition. However, because it's Friday and it's funny (and it's also National Margarita Day, go figure!), give us your best opening tag line for LeAnn in the comments!
Here's a question for you…given the opportunity, would you rather spend a day with the peeps from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, engaging in their small town (and often gross) shenanigans or spend a week with those Kardashian Jenners, traveling to promotional gigs around the world and being treated to overpriced tiny rapper inspired wardrobes? I'll give you my answer later in this post.
The truth is, both families have their fair share of haters and media backlash, but they couldn't be more different. One group is constantly looking to increase its visibility and find more lucrative gigs, while the other dynamic happened to feed their five-year-old pixie sticks and enter her in pageants. Now, I am NOT condoning amping up a child on sugar and go-go juice so she can twirl around stage in a dress that costs more than your monthly income; however, one crew seeks out fame at every turn, and the other is dealing with the effects of having notoriety fall in their laps. It's not the same, I don't care how you spin it!
