Thank you, reality television, for making my home state look like the classiest and most intelligent place in the country. It started with Myrtle Manor, and then CMT slid thirty minutes down the coast to Murrells Inlet for a little gem called Party Down South. Next week, I'll have the pleasure of recapping Bravo's attempt to ruin the beautiful and historic city I adore with a little train wreck called Southern Charm (it's how the other half live, y'all…and I cannot wait!).
While all of South Carolina is abuzz about the upcoming society-skeeze-fest, those characters up scenic Highway 17 need to make sure they aren't forgotten. Enter the brain trust that is Lyle Boudreaux of Party Down South glory.
I'm not sure whether to feel sorry for Tori Spelling or roll my eyes at her idiocy. Where I come from there's an expression that goes, "You lose him how you catch him." And that's exactly what seems to be happening in her marriage to Dean McDermott, living sperm donor who's been caught cheating.
See Dean and Tori, are now professional reality TV stars who flit from various shows hoping something sticks, and they're also broke according to Tori's latest pun-ny book. But that didn't stop Dean from going to the most expensive rehab he could find. Oh yeah, in case you haven't heard Dean is seeking treatment for sex addiction or something.
Dean entered LA’s Grand View House rehab mid-January and Tori is so desperate to get him to stop cheating so she can write another book about titled Adul-TORI: How I Saved My Marriage* that she's paying $60,000 – $70,000 per month! Or should I say Candy Spelling is paying for it?
Bethenny Frankel's talk show 'bethenny' has been canceled! The powers that be announced today that they would not be renewing her show for a second season.
Bethenny debuted her show in a summer trial back in 2012 and it did well enough that they gave her the green light for a full season nationwide. Her show, which debuted this past fall, struggled in the ratings in a crowded talk show market.
Her show has done better recently but it wasn't enough to warrant a season 2. Telepicutres shared, "We are incredibly proud of the creativity, passion and professionalism Bethenny and her staff brought to daytime each and every day and look forward to finishing out the season with more great original episodes. While we are disappointed not to be able to bring the series back for a second season, we remain convinced that she has a unique voice and that she will continue to be successful in the future.”
What do you do when you're a gazillionaire cocktail mogul whose soon-to-be-ex-husband hilariously won't move out of the apartment you share? Well, if you're Bethenny Frankel, you just get a second one so you can have quality time with your douchey new boyfriend daughter.
As Bethenny and Jason Hoppy struggle to come to a settlement agreement, things are getting more and more tense in their abode. I love that Jason is sticking to his guns. Apparently, his parents come to stay almost every weekend, making things all the more cramped, awkward, and humorous!
Confession: I was obsessed with Pretty Wicked Moms last summer. Lifetime described the cast – Emily Boulden,Nicole Noles, Nicole Bennett, Marci Gold, Meredith Underwood, and Miranda Carlson – as six competitive moms breaking the molds of traditional motherhood with sky high stilettos and sassy attitudes. Um. The show was a complete train wreck. And must see TV.
I liked Nicole B the most, but Emily and Nicole N were the breakout stars of the series. Emily, mommy to Amzie and owner of the fashion boutique Swank, and Nicole, dog mommy to Sommer and Emily's best friend, are self-absorbed and out of touch with reality. In other words - reality TV gold. Which is why I'm not surprised to learn that they have scored their own reality TV show.
She tells the magazine, "I had my official last chemo treatment, and while I'm hesitant to say I'm cancer-free – maybe that's common for people who have had cancer – I'm doing great. Everything is moving in the right direction. I am very excited."
Do you live in or around Nashville? Do you have "legitimate" friends and a life most would envy? Do you appear to be between the ages of 18 and 24? If so, then MTV is interested in filming you for a reality show about really, really beautiful, rich, drama-filled people who live in Music City.
I'm guessing that if you're thirty-plus, you can still try to get on the show if you look like you could pass for a young twenty-something…be forewarned though! These are the skeletons that come sprinting out of the closet when you subject yourself to reality television!
Can you believe it's already February? Please join RT in wishing the happiest of birthdays to stars of Big Rich Texas, Jersey Shore, and Mob Wives! Of course, who could forget everyone's favorite original reality star? That's hot!
