It's not until I hear news like this that I remember how flipping awesome the Olympics were…and now, they're coming back to us (sort of) thanks to Ryan Lochte and (no surprise here) E! Yes, that's right, everyone's himbo with the washboard abs has finally secured his own reality show.
Ryan made a splash (so sorry) in the 2012 Summer Games in London, and he was noticed just as much for his classic good looks, piercing blue eyes, and diamond studded grill as he was for his gold medal winning prowess. Granted, you can practically hear the hamster wheel circling in his head when he tries to form a thought, but he sure is pretty.
That said, according to executive producer John Stevens, BUCKWILD isn't all about the mud racing, body licking, squirrel hunting, reckless driving, and garbage throwing you've seen in the previews. (though that does sound lovely)
John says, "Look at any TV or movie trailer out there, and it will grab your attention with the most outrageous stuff. That's just a formula that broadcasters and movie companies have used forever. I don't think that's indicative of what the show is. BUCKWILD has a lot of wild moments to it, but I think it's got tons of heart, and I think you're going to see some really fun kinds of relationships."
MTV mirrors John's sentiment, stating, "The BUCKWILD cast's bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!"
Love her or hate her, you knowKim Granatell (aka Kim G) brings the drama to New Jersey!
The last we heard, Kim was working on a book (Amazon is going to be bursting with RHONJ cast members in 2013) and she was in talks to branch off to another reality TV show and leave those NJ Housewives behind. True to her word, Kimmy G is attached to the new show "The New Jersey Socialites".
This won't be your typical "I'm so rich and fabulous yet the bank just put a lock on my front door in real life" type shows. It's set to be a competition style series – for charity! Check out the full press release below!
The Stoddens are trying to remain relevant by attempting to launch Courtney's music career and another reality TV gig, but say that she's going to have a tough time because of her beauty. Everything from this interview qualified as quote of the day material.
The first gem shared by Krista, “She’s a victim of her own beauty. We need to understand all kinds of discrimination. It’s very sad. Courtney is the new Anna Nicole Smith, without the drugs. Everyone wants to be like Marilyn Monroe, but with Courtney the beauty comes from within — like Pam Anderson and Farrah Fawcett.”
If you're willing to sacrifice your dignity for a paycheck, Real Housewives isn't a bad gig. The first ladies of Bravo rake in big bucks to cause a ruckus and argue; in addition they get a massive platform for which to launch their products and tirelessly promote them. Of course, Bravo/NBC takes a cut of the profit but the ends justify the means, right?
RadarOnline decided to breakdown who earns what for the network. As to be expected the biggest earners are the biggest drama creators or have the most devoted fan following.
Teresa was able to renegotiate her contract and fought for a higher salary for season five, along with conditions, i.e. getting to add a friend or two to the cast. Rumor has it Teresa is by far the highest earning Jersey lady, beating out fellow veterans Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. There's also rumors that Teresa is in talks to develop a cooking-lifestyle spinoff!
