Since the demise of the Style Network, I've been anxious to find out what will happen to a few of my favorite reality shows. While some of Style's lineup will simply disappear, a few shows will likely end up on E!, Oxygen, or Bravo.
The thought of never seeing my favorite Big Rich Texas stars again gives me a serious case of the sads. Le sigh. So, when Melissa Poe tweeted that she's involved with a new reality series, I may have let out a happy little squee.
Every once in a while, I have to give credit where credit is due when it comes to the reality TV stars I love to hate. I really (really, really) thought Emily Maynard would do everything in her power to remain in the spotlight following her stint as the Bachelorette. Much to my surprise – not so much!
It's been a full year since Emily and Jef Holm ended their engagement – can you believe it? – and nearly ten months since Emily gave Reality Tea anything to snark on. These days, Emily appears to be content spending time with her daughter, Ricki, and a new mystery man, as well as designing and blogging.
Bethenny's shrill scream was heard around the world, I'm sure. "Oh my god," she added. "Please kill me now. I just want to die. I really do."
On the tape, Bethenny talked baby talk to her dog, made fun of her driver, and talked up her career. "I've cooked for Mariska Hargitay, the Hiltons, Brooke Hogan, Alicia Silverstone, models," she shared. "Basically I'm a natural foods chef, and in Hollywood, health sells."
Bethenny declared the clip painful to watch, asking Andy, "That's why I made it on the show?" Andy said, despite his initial reservations about Bethenny's past experience with reality TV on Martha Stewart: The Apprentice, he thought she was really funny. And now we're stuck with her the rest is history.
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
MTV's Typhani Morgan desperately wants us to know that Big Tips Texas has heart. AWW. She insists her Redneck Heaven reality show isn't all about fights and drama, and then she and Morgan Adler endlessly talk about the catty girl drama on Big Tips Texas.
Clear as rodeo mud?
"A lot of other reality shows rely on cat fights and feuding to draw in viewers," says Typhani. "Our show, yes we have drama, but there's a lot of heart that goes into it. It makes it really relatable instead of just cat fights all the time."
MTV's Big Tips Texas features four veteran and six newbie waitresses and/or bartenders at a bar named Redneck Heaven. Yes, it's as trashy as it sounds. What the girls lack in clothing, they make up for in eye shadow though, so it all balances out.
Big Tips Texas wants to be Coyote Ugly. It's not. They're not even from the same planet. Big Tips Texas turns out to be Buckwild meets Bad Girls Club. The girls liken themselves to a sisterhood (Sisterhood of the Traveling Coochie Shorts?) or a sorority (No. Just no.).
The veterans and newbies do not work (or play) well together.
