I already love the family from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but if I hadn't already, I would after learning more about them. They may act like a backwoods sideshow a lot of the time, but the truth is that June and her daughters are much more grounded than many of us would be if we got a taste of reality fame.
After catching America's eye as a then five-year-old Alana downed go-go juice on Toddlers and Tiaras, the family has garnered both fame and criticism for their lack of manners and poor eating habits (sketti, anyone?), as well as their unconventional family outings. In their show's first episode, fifteen-year-old Jessica "Chubs" went bobbing for raw pig's feet, and later in the season the family went dumpster diving while talking about their penchant for eating road kill. It's easy to see how some people could turn up their noses at this family, if it weren't for one small fact.
This family totally loves one another. There is very little drama, and no question about how much mama June loves her four daughters. If you can understand Sugar Bear with his mouth full of dip, you would know he feels the exact same. While their show has been green lighted for a second season, the group still continues to live their regular lives in the tiny county of McIntyre, Georgia. June is doing everything she can to make sure that fame affecting her family is not an option.
You know you've made it big as a housewife when you write a book, or rather if you have a ghost writer write a book for you! Well, it appears that Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is making it big. The sharp-tongued, Twitter loving, scorned wife is writing a book where she will share her wealth of knowledge and advice on relationships (what not to do, I'd assume).
Brandi's guide to dating will help readers score the person of their dreams as long as they do as she says and not as she does. The best part of Brandi's tome? She is letting her fans pick the title, and I must say, they are pretty hilarious!

Camille Grammer's ex-husband Kelsey has been making the media rounds lately, and he likes to take any opportunity to take to undercut his ex in the press. Whether he's sharing that he got her on RHOBH as a marriage parting gift or snarking that the pair hadn't had sex in over a decade, it's TMI at its finest.
Likewise, no matter where you turn, Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif are battling over custody and abuse allegations in the tabloids. It's enough to make your head spin!
Big Ang is still bigger than life! With her new book, her new store, and the third season of Mob Wives, she is busier than ever, and she can't wait to share all things Ang with the world. Ang recently spoke with VH1 where she shared that Mob Wives has just wrapped. It promises to be the most dramatic season ever…and I don't doubt it! Ang also can't confirm a second season of her spin-off, but she is hopeful we'll be seeing more Big Ang on the network in the future.
Andrew Coleman's web of lies unraveled last night on Flipping Out, and I must say it was much more dramatic than I anticipated. You know, I thought Andrew was funny the first couple episodes, but his attitude is horrendous. I do think, however, that it was the best show of the season so far!
Andrew seems a little sullen after his tongue lashing from Jeff Lewis, but he is willing to do Jeff's grunt work. Jeff insists he isn't trying to punish Andrew….he just want him to prove that he really wants to the job by being willing to do anything…even if it's cleaning the outside range.
Jenni Pulos and Jeff are going to meet with Lisa. At Lisa's office the pair trade off wearing Kangoo boots and racing down the hall, crashing face first into walls. They get scolded by en EXTRA! employee like two children. It's hilarious. Jeff has countertop samples for Lisa, but all she sees are rising dollar signs. He had better keep this budget in check!
Can I just say, I'm watching Anderson Live, and that interview certainly didn't go as Teresa Giudice planned. If looks could kill, Kellie Pickler would be performing CPR on poor Anderson Cooper right now. Wow. It's not Teresa's morning, and unfortunately for her, I have some more bad press for her, courtesy of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. These women of Real Housewives of New Jersey love to give an interview, don't they? I really can't believe they don't get along seeing as how much they have in common.
In light of stripper-gate, Melissa is making sure we remember just how mean Teresa is (we get it, we get it!). This time around she's talking about the "roughing up" that happened at poor G-to-the-IA Giudice's birthday party. I mean, these poor, poor kids. Shame on these ladies!
Of course, perhaps the couple had enough of wedding planning the first go-round. After all, Gloria and Matt were engaged two years ago and called off the wedding right before their August nuptials. Maybe a small and spontaneous service at a Vegas chapel is exactly what these two needed.
I am still baffled why Dance Moms needed a two-part reunion, but apparently Kaya had a lot to say, and there is never enough time for Candy Apple Cathy and Abby Lee Miller to bicker. The reunion did have to reach back to past seasons to get enough material though.
Poor Jeff Collins looks like he had a couple Red Bulls after the first hour. We are treated to the moms dancing at Abby's dance recital from a past season. Cathy choreographed the act, and she took off mid-number to perform a crazy-eyed jazz solo. It's hilarious, and Abby shockingly is appalled that Cathy tried to purposely embarrass the ladies.
Cathy and Abby discuss the competition between their two studios. Cathy thinks her studio is just as good as Abby's, but she does credit Abby's dancers for having more star power. Jill and Cathy go at each other over Kendall. Cathy isn't keen on Jill's studio hopping, and Jill doesn't like that Kendall didn't fit in with the other Candy Apple dancers. Cathy is questioned about whether she has cheated in the past by trying to sneak older dancers into younger age categories. Lots of choreographers average ages of those dancing in group numbers according to Cathy. She proudly admits to copying Chloe's solo music for one of her dancers to psyche out poor Chloe before she performed. After a viewer question, Cathy addresses bringing in outside choreographers. Abby admits to have done the same, saying that she likes working with them.
