Preachers of L.A. is hoping to be considered a positive reality show that is more about substance and message than about bickering, drama, and flash.
Breakout star Deitrick Haddon, a gospel singer and inspiring preacher, says he was more than aware of the negative connotations association with reality TV but felt he could overcome that obstacle to tell an inspiring story. "You can't live your life according to what has been or what has passed. It's up to you to redefine the situation," he explains to Essence. "I definitely knew there was a negative history on reality shows. But I knew that this show would kind of change the game because it's about preachers. Preachers are people who have a certain standard about themselves and they are people of integrity."
Kim Kardashian's weight has been big news lately. First when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was pregnant people were talking about how much she gained and now that daughter North is four months old they're talking about how much she's lost.
Kim recently confessed she's been using the Atkins diet to lose weight. The former uber trend in weightloss advocates little to no "carbs" and instead is protein-based. "I've actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it," Kim shared on twitter.
Last night on Real Housewives of Miami we were witness to the slooooowest wedding ever. I mean it took over five years and then some hours to finally get that thing officially off the ground, right?!
Adriana de Moura was hours upon hours late to her own affair because she confused wedding with fashion show and was holed up in a suite getting dressed. Meanwhile downstairs the guests were sweating to death before passing out from hunger and finally giving up and leaving. Hopefully they all swung by McDonald's on their way out.
Twenty-four hours before the big day, the drama begins. Adriana is having a stress attack and is so sick she's talking about skipping the whole thing to sleep. She pretty much did skip the whole thing but that's cause she was grooming. Speaking of grooming, despite just getting an IV of vitamins she needsFrederic Marq to give her a B-12 shot in the butt for more vitamins. Is it possible to be addicted to them?
With the popularity of Love & Hip Hop it only makes sense that a more and more notorious cast joins the ranks!
First came the rumors that they are expanding the franchise, and now a new rumor says Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran along with some other famous hangerons celebs will be joining the show! Anemail leaked by Sandra Rose supposedly revealed Mona Scott-Young's casting plans!
The email claimed to have booked several famous faces for a west coast franchise! Mona is reportedly only allowed to choose one new location per VH-1 and the shortlist is Houston, LA, or New Orleans.
If you recall Kandi Burruss filed a lawsuit against Kim claiming she stiffed her of her royalties from Don't Be Tardy and failed to give her a production credit. Kandi succeeded in having the song briefly pulled from iTunes over a copyright violation.
This is a long one kiddos, so settle in. There's a bevy of news about the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta which is finding itself in a bit of a hot mess. We've been sitting on this and combing through the info so prepare yourself for a read-thru.
Last week Cynthia Bailey hosted some charity fitness event called The Bailey Bowl. According to FreddyO.com the event was filmed for RHOA – and all the ladies were in attendance. It's interesting that they are still filming considering the season airs in less than a month. Bravo still hasn't released the official cast photos yet, which brings us to the issue at hand…
Attending the event was also former RHOA extra Marlo Hampton, previously fired for being too scandalous and too criminally cultivated. Marlo staged a return to Bravo on NeNe Leakes wedding spinoff I Dream Of NeNe. The show has been popular and rumors are swirling that Bravo is making some last-minute cast changes to RHOA. Meaning MARLO is being re-introduced to the show.
So let's talk about what happened. Andy Cohen has obviously been watching a lot of old episodes of 20/20 and he put on his hard-hitting interviewer costume to ask all the really deep questions we've been obsessively tweeting him for seasons. A sign of end times? Also everyone behaved like an adult for the most part. Probably because three-fourths of the people on that stage aren't coming back next season and had nothing to lose or gain. I personally enjoy Jacqueline Laurita much better when her sequins are flying out of her seat and shimmering with rage.
Was Kathy Wakile even there? I wouldn't have even noticed her except she was rocking a low-rent version of Melissa Gorga's blackout eyes that she was sporting all season. It was so much black she looked like a panda bear. Speaking of pandas, since the government shutdown I can't watch the baby panda cam on the National Zoo website. Get it together federal government! Get it together Kathy's makeup team!
Bethenny believed the show would catapult her out of the reality television genre and give her the opportunity to connect one-on-one with her fans. Unfortunately "fans" aren't tuning in. And she's being slaughtered in the ratings by Queen Latifah, who surprisingly turned out to be her biggest talk show rival.
"Bethenny is livid about Queen Latifah beating her – she can't believe this is happening," a source told Star Magazine (print edition). Indeed Bethenny's ratings have been slipping. Bethenny's show is averaging a .9 Nielsen rating while Queen Latifah is nabbing a healthy 1.4.
