Another season, another slew of reality series! As we head into the summer months, we need even more mindless television to distract us from the fact that the weather is beautiful and we're all stuck inside working for a living. I have to say, Ryan Seacrest's channel is stepping up to the plate–and stepping away from the Kardashians–to bring us a whole gamut of new entertainment.
According to an E! press release, we have lots to look forward to in the vein of new reality shows from the network. From the boys of The Wanted to the WWE to the gray flannel clad Bachelor (you know who I'm talking about!), there is sure to be something for everyone!
The competition was fierce on last night's Dance Moms, and, as usual, Abby Lee Miller did everything in her power to perpetuate feelings of inadequacy and insecurity in her troupe. She's such a sweetheart.
The ALDC heads to New York City for Abby's appearance on The View, but that doesn't spare the girls from the pyramid. The moms also learn that Cathy and her Candy Apples are in the Big Apple. Abby had Nia and Asia on the bottom for an out of synch duet, followed by Brooke. Paige is on the second rung for a not so memorable routine, with Kendall securing the third spot. Maddie is second on the pyramid for only scoring one point above the girl at the top spot: Chloe. I am so excited for her, and she is beaming!
For the NYC competition, Asia, Maddie, and Chloe will all be dancing solos, as will Kendall. Jill can't contain herself and Abby makes sure Jill knows she needs to keep kissing up with gifts to stay in her good graces. Everyone will be dancing in the group number. In addition to the competition, Abby wants to perfect The Last Text for The View, and she announces that Asia will be dancing in MacKenzie's place for the talk show. Melissa is livid and she sputters that her daughter has put her time in with the troupe. Abby reminds Melissa that MacKenzie has an injured foot. Jill is stirring the pot with Melissa to stick up to Abby, but Kristie 2.0 wants Asia to have a part in the dance.
Bravo called, and it wants another hit series which could spark another Housewives-esque franchise! The network is known for its over the top reality series showing the drama and opulence of lives far outside the average viewer's reach (aka, me). It's fun to peek into someone else's money fueled lifestyle for an hour in the evenings.
True to form, the network is introducing a new series that will allow us to do just that with the privileged girls of Long Island. Get ready, RT readers, Princesses: Long Island is sure to be Andy Cohen's next train wreck of a series, and I, for one, can't wait!
VH1's most drama-filled series of wacky ridiculousness is back, and this season we've got some new players. Lord help us all! Last night was the much anticipated premiere of the second season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and it did not disappoint. Stevie J is just as creepy as usual, Benzino's head is still far too big for his body, and the ladies are all still making pretty horrible life choices. Well, all the ladies except for Joseline Hernandez…she's too busy keeping it real—real crazy!
The episode starts with a full on shower scene starring Mimi Faust. As she primps for the day, she admits to cleaning house, and I assume she means both literally and figuratively. Of course, Mimi walks out of the bathroom and Stevie J and their daughter in bed together. Mimi explains that it's not what viewers think. She crashed at Stevie's the night before and Joseline (who lives there) stormed in and disrespected little Eva. As the former couple cuddles in bed, they discuss the previous night's events, Mimi tells Stevie that she doesn't want Joseline around her daughter. It's settled. Mimi will start staying at Stevie's house to serve as Joseline repellent. She's not ready to commit to him just yet…she'll just live with him in the meantime. Way to be strong, Mimi!
Erica Dixon and Lil' Scrappy are living together and planning their wedding, but Erica wants him to cut down on his swag. According to him, his swag is at the tenth level, while Erica believes his labels need to be on a budget. Scrappy spends $2000 a month on clothing, but he's willing to compromise on a wardrobe budget of $1200…sometimes. Am I wrong, or was he behind on child support last season? Is a Gucci label more important than providing for his child?
You knew it was coming…we all did. Now that Kim Kardashian has finalized her divorce with Kris Humphries, she needs to find something else to boo-hoo about in the media. This go-round, she picks her second favorite topic…just how horrible hard and icky her pregnancy is. No wonder her baby daddy Kanye West is holed up at Paris Fashion Week, far, FAR away from this kraziness! You'd think she was the first woman ever to be uncomfortable during her pregnancy. Sympathy? I got nothin'!
Page Six reports on Kim's sit down with E!'s Ryan Seacrest as she pouts–yet again–about her pregnancy. On the Kardashianfamily special, Kim komplains, “I was waiting for this amazing experience where I could just do whatever I want, eat whatever I want, feel great, and it just hasn’t been that way.”
Now all Kim will need to do is figure out the next drama inducing scenario to keep her in the tabloids. Speaking of inducing, perhaps she could have doctors make sure she goes into labor smack dab in the midst of a public appearance! Oh Kris, you may not have gotten your annulment, but you totally dodged a bullet!
Last night's reunion host was none other than Dr. Drew, who admits to being a huge fan of the show. Sure he is, just like he DVRs Teen Mom 2… I wonder if the ladies scared off Joy Behar or if she just had a prior commitment. I'm actually shocked they didn't get John Salley to be a part of this VH1 debacle! Drew smugly talks about the drama from the season and explains that there is some Love (Majewski, that is) lost–because she won't be appearing on the reunion after getting booted from the show. We're treated to a highlight reel of Love's looniest confessions and outbursts. The woman sure loves to stab people!
It's been quite a week for Bethenny Frankel, especially after Friday's hearing in her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Now, she's focusing on more positive things, like her upcoming talk show. The Bethenny Ever After star calls her hour-long daily sitdown "a public girls' night out," and she's not shy about the topics she plans to highlight…and those she plans to bypass.
Speaking to ABC about the premise for her show, Bethenny explains, “I just have found as you get older, women insulate a little more because they’re just so busy and have so much going on. They don’t really get the chance to really sit down and talk about their marriages, their money problems, their sex problems, infidelity issues. That’s what my talk show is about.”
