It’s no secret thatDanny Zureikat was everyone’s favorite whipping boy on the debut season of Below Deck Mediterranean. But was Danny the architect of his own demise, or was he simply a scapegoat for everyone’s frustrations and the victim of piss-poor management? I tend to think Danny’s downward spiral included elements of both. But Danny’s family, who he often referenced as his inspiration and support, saw Danny as more of a tortured victim than an entitled brat. Perhaps therein lies Danny’s problem with taking personal responsibility? Hmmm.
Briana Renee has been riding a wild roller coaster of pure drama for as long as anyone can remember onLittle Women: LA. The self proclaimed “fierce mama” first graced our screens as a quiet, but good hearted single mom navigating life and love in the big city. Since that first season, Briana’s life changed dramatically. So, what happened exactly? Well, Matt happened! After meeting, then marrying, then becoming pregnant by the serial cheater and liar, Matt Ericson (Grundhoffer), Briana became the main source of contention within the LWLA friend group, and with her fans.
But Briana claims things are looking up, both in her marriage and her friendships. She also has some swamp land in Florida she’d like to sell you for a once in a lifetime low price! After a myriad of sexting scandals, Matt’s dubious claims of abuse and sex addiction, and Briana’s ever growing isolation from her family, Briana says she doesn’t have time for the criticism anymore. Instead she’s focused “on my life, building my marriage, and raising my son.” Although, she adds, handling these issues requires a “tougher skin” than she used to have.
I have no idea what to expect from Mariah Carey’s upcoming reality TV show, but I am so here for it. I am just hoping that it’s not some super polished show about her preparing to perform in Vegas and record in the studio. That sounds like a yawn fest.
I am really hoping for some raw and crazy behind-the-scenes footage of Mariah complaining about lighting options and seamlessly throwing shade. The show Mariah’s World is set to premiere at some point this Fall, so obviously Mariah has been promoting it and talking about what makes her show different than other celebrity reality endeavors.
I jumped the gun when it came to my excitement in response to the news that Jennifer Lopez has a new reality TV show in the works. I was hoping that we would get a behind-the-scenes look at her taking care of the twins in between her Las Vegas performances, but it is not that kind of show.
JLo’s show is not even going to be about her. It is actually a dance competition show – which is not too shocking since JLo is super private these days and we all know about her extensive dance background. I’m just a little confused though since it’s not like there’s some shortage of dance competition shows in reality TV. With that said, I can’t help wondering how this show will be different.
If you didn’t watch Married at First Sight during its first three seasons, then you have really been missing out. Yes, it is a pretty wild concept to get married to someone right as you’re meeting them, but it’s cool to see how well-matched – or not so well matched – the couples are.
Thankfully the reality show is coming back for a fourth season and I cannot be more excited about it.
