ABC has announced the cast ofBachelor in Paradise – well, there are some familiar faces, though not as many old schoolBachelor Pad fame whores as I was expecting, and some not-so-familiar faces. I honestly had to look up two of the "biggest stars" because I couldn't remember who they are.
Per the press release: "Some of Bachelor's biggest stars and villains are back. They all left theBachelor or theBachelorettewith broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and on Bachelor in Paradise they'll get a second chance to find their soul mates."
"Our latest crop of development is all about connecting Bravo viewers with who they definitely must know and what they absolutely cannot live without," sharedBravo's SVP of Development Lara Spotts. "From a glimpse inside a luxury ski resort to a curation of what is new and what is next, Bravo has its finger on the pulse of the latest trends for our viewers to keep up at the water cooler."
Patti Stanger is one of three executive producers behind Family Love, which follows Lisa Galos and her unconventional family of matchmakers, including her beautiful single daughter, gay son, ex-husband, and even her ex-husband’s former mistress. Family Love follows Lisa and her offbeat family as they set up singles (and probably not-so-single since Bravo's involved) in Chicago.
VH1 announced the new Couples Therapy cast late last week. Season five will feature former porn star Jenna Jameson & John Wood, Big Brother's Dick Donato & Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, former Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese & Chris Buckner, and Naughty By Nature's Treach & Cicely Evans. As a huge fan of Big Brother, I am looking forward to seeing Evel Dick again!
Not impressed with the cast? Ess okay, there's more!
According to E!, Bachelor mistake Juan Pablo Galavis and his chosen one Nikki Ferrell have joined the cast, but they were not mentioned in the press release due to Juan's contract. "It's true they're doing it," confirmed a source. "The reason it wasn't put in the press release is due to Juan Pablo's deal with ABC. It's not up until August, so, contractually, it can't be mentioned until then."
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, who is 9 months pregnant and due June 29, celebrated with a baby shower over the weekend. "Had the first baby shower today," Jenelle tweeted. "Had a great time and got a lot of awesome gifts." Of course dad-to-be Nathan Griffith, Jace, and Barbara Evans were there too.
Jenelle announced the pregnancy – which they planned – in December and the gender reveal – it's a boy – in February. Nathan and Jenelle decided to name their son Kaiser, which means Emperor in German, and they decorated his nursery with a king theme.
Jenelle shared pictures from the baby shower via Facebook. You know, I have to give credit where credit is due, she looks happy and healthy. Happy can be faked for the camera – healthy not so much, so Jenelle's doing something right.
Bravo's new and highly anticipated reality series Ladies of London premieres tonight. The cast of six socialites includes Caroline Stanbury, Marissa Hermer, Juliet Angus, Caprice Bourret, Annabelle Neilson, Noelle Reno, and Julie Montagu.
According to Bravo: "Ladies of London follows a group of elite British socialites and American expats who run in similar social circles but are worlds apart. From weekend getaways in the English countryside, to high tea at one of London’s exclusive polo-clubs, both groups adhere to London’s strict unwritten rules of engagement where reputation is everything. Although they lead lives of unimaginable wealth, in London’s high society, fortune has less influence than bloodlines and respect is not easily earned."
My favorite quotes so far: "If you are not from here, well then, you're just royally screwed" and "I consider royals to be some of my closest friends." Um, because most close friends of the royals are on Bravo, no? HAHAHA! This is going to be so. much. fun. I cannot wait. Check out the Ladies of London cast photos and bios and trailer below.
