TLC's Breaking Amish debuted with an interesting premise. Featuring four Amish, Kate, Jeremiah, Abe, and Rebecca, and one Mennonite, Sabrina, TLC promised, "a never-before-seen look inside the lives of young men and women as they, for the first time, trade horse and buggy with taxi cabs to break out from their respective Amish/Mennonite communities in their pursuit to chase big dreams in the Big Apple." Not long after its premiere, however, it became very clear that Breaking Amish should have been titled Faking Amish. Almost immediately, several blogs and Facebook pages popped up, detailing how TLC misrepresented the cast… complete with photo and public record evidence.
TLC addressed the allegations with this statement: "There is a lot of information floating around about the group featured on Breaking Amish. Much of it is not true, but some of it is — and is addressed in upcoming episodes.” Thus far, TLC's in-episode explanations have been incredibly lame.
Yesterday, TLC announced a two-part Breaking Amish reunion special. According to the press release, the cast will "disclose where their relationships currently stand with their family and friends" and address the "questions about the authenticity of their Amish and Mennonite backgrounds.”

Apparently, the stars of Teen Mom want to accomplish as much as they can before they're of legal drinking age. One Teen Mom 2 star will have three
college degrees babies before 21, one Teen Mom star has undergone three plastic surgeries, and one Teen Mom 2 star has logged three (to the tenth power) acts of volunteerism breakups and reconciliations before 21.
First, Leah (Messer) Calvert announced yesterday that she is pregnant again. According to US Weekly, Leah and Jeremy Calvert's baby will join their family this winter. This is Leah's third pregnancy. Leah suffered a miscarriage earlier this year. In 2009, Leah had twins, Ali and Aleeah, with her first husband, Corey Simms.
Leah confirmed the US Weekly story via facebook and tweeted:
"THANKS SOOO MUCH EVERYONE! #PositiveTweets makes this momma soooo happy!!! @Calvert505 are in such a good place! Love all of you!"
"Being a teen mom was difficult, but I'm older and in a different place now — married to Jeremy and excited for our family to grow," Leah said. "We feel incredibly blessed and look forward to this next chapter in our lives." Oh, Leah, why the rush? You might be "older" but you are still only 20.
Next, this week's In Touch cover revealed (more) plastic surgery for a different Teen Mom star.

Reality Tea is new to Big Rich Texas. Actually, so am I, so please be kind. There are way too many blondes and annoying voices to keep all of the characters straight. And they're all either holding or throwing wine glasses. Good thing the Hollywood Exes aren't the "Dallas Exes"… one little glass throwing incident sent those women into a tailspin. Their heads would explode over here.
Tuning in for the first time, I didn't know what to expect. I did not anticipate using "vagina" and "booger" in the recap title, that's for sure. Big Rich Texas sure knows how to keep it classy up in their fancy community. I also did not expect… I freaking love this show… in a trashy reality TV/guilty pleasure sort of way. Thank you, Reality Tea readers, for being so vocal about this hidden gem. My life will never be the same. Coincidentally, neither will my liver, because I have a feeling the Big Rich Texas shenanigans are much more fun to watch when paired with a glass of wine or a flask of vodka. Let's get this party started, shall we?
For season three we have Bonnie Blossman, Leslie Birkland, Melissa Poe, Connie Dieb, DeAynni Hatley, and newcomer Cindy Davis. And, of course, their lovely daughters and borrowed pageant girl. Already this season, the ladies have had a botox party, where Melissa and Leslie fought, a casino party, where Melissa and Leslie fought, and a crab boil, where DeAynni slapped her daughter Shaye Hatley. Apparently, it's not the first time this has happened, either. Also, worth mentioning, Bonnie's daughter Whitney Whatley moved in with her boyfriend Booger and Leslie's been bragging about her never-before-seen billionaire boyfriend Kip.
Episode three starts with Leslie's borrowed pageant girl Kalyn Braun lounging by the pool with Tyler and new-on-the-scene Terry. Terry is a jockey at the ranch where Kalyn dresses like a Texan hooker to shovel horse poop. Maddie obsessively plays with her hair and makes fun of Kalyn's new occupation. Why anyone would leave a cupcake shop for a ranch is beyond me. On the couch, Kalyn says there's one big perk to scooping poop, "On my days off, I get to bring the hot boys to the country club. Job with benefits."

Looking back at her reality star fame, Heidi Montag says, “It was quite the whirlwind, and I’m happy to be out of it.” In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, the former The Hills star says she is glad to be out of the spotlight and has many regrets, including the
disgusting extreme plastic surgery she underwent in 2009.
Rosie O'Donnell recently declared her love for Alana Thompson and her family. I'll admit… I'm one of the few around here who compares Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to a train wreck. It doesn't feel right to watch it, but I cannot look away. I still do not know if the show gives me the warm fuzzies or the heebie jeebies.
Rosie admitted Here Come Honey Boo Boo took some getting used to. "For the first 10 minutes, I was kinda stunned," Rosie said. "For the second 10 minutes, I was touched. And for the last 10 minutes I thought, this is really revolutionary TV in a way most people won't understand." Rosie was so enamored, she offered to buy the family a new house!
June Shannon finally responded to Rosie's offer. She told Rosie the same thing she told TLC – they love their house, railroad tracks and all. After acknowledging Rosie's kindness, June said, "We're not looking for a hand out, but we do want to renovate our house."
"We're in," Rosie told People in response to June's not-so-subtle hint. "Are you kidding me? Of course!"
