As always, it’s been a busy week for reality TV news, filled with ups and downs. First and foremost, our condolences go out to Melissa Rivers on the loss of her mother, Joan Rivers. A true legend, Joan will be missed by many.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 this week! Enjoy!

Thursday’s new cast reveal did not impress me, but I will tune in to cheer on my favorite pro dancers. When did the pros become a bigger draw than the stars?! That said, I remember not knowing much about Emmitt Smith, Gilles Marini, Donald Driver, and Zendaya beyond their profession, but I grew to love each of them on their season. So I hope the same happens this time around.
Below are photos of the stars – Antonio Sabato Jr, Betsey Johnson, Alfonso Ribeiro, Janel Parrish, Lolo Jones, Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Randy Couture, Michael Waltrip, Sadie Robertson, Tavis Smiley, Lea Thompson, and Jonathan Bennett – with their pro partners. This coming Monday brings us the Bachelor in Paradise finale – who’s watching that hot mess?!? – then the new season of Dancing with the Stars kicks off Monday, September 15.
Believe it or not, Teen Mom 2 won Wednesday night, with 1.553 million viewers. Also this week, 1.559 million watched the ALDC prepare for Nationals on Dance Moms and 1.018 million tolerated Josh Altman’s ego on Million Dollar Listing LA. In summary, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and Teen Mom 2 ruled the cable ratings this week, and I don’t know whether to weep for our society or thank all of you for the job security.
Teen Mom 2 oompa loompa Leah Calvert is a mess. And I’m not talking about her hair and makeup this time. Financially… she’s a nightmare! And as we saw on Teen Mom 2 this week, Leah wants us to believe her money problems are Corey‘s fault. That didn’t go over well, so Leah took to Twitter to defend herself against the backlash from fans. It’s rich, err, no shade intended.
Perpetual victim Leah rewrites history like it’s her job, especially where Corey Simms is concerned, and I don’t trust a word that comes out of her mouth. Ever. If she had not wasted so much money on hair dye, a luxury washer and dryer, convenience foods, designer purses, and makeup, she’d have more money to go towards medical bills and household expenses.
Leah’slatest drama revolves around a new horse. Last year, Leah and Jeremy Calvert sold their home because it was not handicap accessible, which is understandable, and moved into an apartment until they found the perfect home. Leah set her sights on a ranch with horses for Ali‘s therapy – and I wouldn’t be shocked if she expects Corey‘s insurance to pay for it. #sarcasm
See a sneak peek of Shahs of Sunset season 4 below. I’d say hurry, but nothing’s changed. We see MJ crying, Asa silently judging, GG drinking, Reza pretending he’s Ghandi, and Mike blankly staring. I miss Lilly already.
