We told you this was going to happen — on Monday, VH1 announced that a second season of their hit reality show Dating Naked is a go. Not really a surprise to anyone, the show has been a ratings juggernaut, averaging almost 1 million viewers.
Now, with this latest announcement from VH1, and with their renewal of their other summer hit, Candidly Nicole, it begs the question — are they please going to end the train wreck that is LeAnn and Eddie with an official cancellation?
Well, color me shocked! True Tori is coming back for a second season. Forget about that very public affair of Dean McDermott that was tabloid fodder for months as he and his wife Tori Spelling prepped for their latest reality series. Pretend like the world didn’t watch as they went to therapy about said infidelity. Let’s not even get started on Tori’s subsequent hospitalization for stress. No big deal! Apparently, it’s all about living life on camera no matter what. Why am I so surprised? After all, I blog about people just like them (lovers of attention, every last one!) almost every single day.
Still, after a very raw and awkward first season, I couldn’t believe that Tori and Dean would put their young family back in the spotlight. I guess I should look for themes. This season will totally be “the rebuilding.” Am I right?
TLC’s latest polygamist show, My Five Wives promised to bring an “honest, fresh look at this very controversial lifestyle,” when it premiered last summer. But what they failed to mention was that the show would follow star, Brady Williams, not just in his relationships with his wives: Paulie, Robyn, Rosemary, Nonie, and Rhonda along with their 24 children. But also as he went head-first into debt.
Earlier this year, Brady took the drastic step to file for bankruptcy claiming to only have a little over $3.00 in his savings account, but having over $400,000 in debt. But now a judge has smiled down on him and wiped away three-quarters of his debt.
VH1 renewed Candidly Nicole for a second season! Based on Nicole Richie‘s hilarious Twitter feed, Candidly Nicole follows Nicole as she tackles every day life situations and shares her views on style, relationships, work, and more.
The concept is simple – but Nicole‘s lovely personality and witty sense of humor make for a great show. Candidly Nicole is a refreshing change of pace from the housewives drama, hip hop drama, couples drama, etc. Bring on season two!
MTV: “Slednecks is a weekly half-hour comedic docu-series following a group of ‘outdoor tough’ friends living in the rural town of Wasilla, Alaska. With mountains and rivers as their playground, these close friends make the most of what they have while always having a blast doing it. Polar Bear plunges, airboating on ice, glacier parties, river wakeboarding, and human catapulting are just some of the adventures these ‘Sled-necks’ get into, while also navigating dramatic friendships and relationships in the prime of their lives.”
Slednecks premieres October 30 on MTV. Check out the trailer below.
When Vh1 debuted their new dating show, Dating Naked, I am sure they had high hopes of the show becoming a trending topic across social media. The show — which is exactly what is sounds like, contestants who have never met, date, while naked — has become a trending topic, but not for breaking ratings records.
Instead, everyone seems to be talking about the fact that a contestant has now sued Vh1’s parent company Viacom as well as two production companies because the show showed her too naked. For real!
“The ladies embark on a whirlwind journey of breakups, make-ups, milestone birthdays, vacations, and even a wedding,” says TLC. “Just when all the codes of gypsy culture seem apparent, they break the rules and undergo shocking transformations in the most jaw-dropping season of Gypsy Sisters yet.”
Nettie, Mellie, JoAnn, Kayla, and Annie are back, and according to TLC, they’re bigger, badder, and better than ever. No doubt, The Learing Channel at its finest. Season two castmember Sheena turned down an offer to return. Find out what the Gypsy Sisters have been up to and see a sneak peek below.
VH1 promises: “A new group of R&B and hip hop hopefuls have their eyes on the prize and are ready to deliver the shock, drama, and scandal as only the #1 social show of the summer can do. With the music industry constantly evolving, these artists’ unwavering ambition keeps them hustling to stay at the top and willing to lay it all on the line.”
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood premieres September 15 on VH1. Rumor has is that the cast and their storylines leave a lot to be desired – Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Atlanta anymore – we shall see! Check out the full cast and sneak peek below.
