If you turn on the Style Network at any given time of the day, chances are you're going to see Kimora Lee Simmons sharing her fashion tips during the commercial breaks. The model, actress, fashion designer, and author (she wrote Fabulosity: What It Is And How To Get It) is known just as much for her high profile relationships as she is for her multiple business ventures. Married and divorced from fashion and music mogul Russell Simmons (the pair has two tween daughters), Kimora recently separated from her latest beau Dijimon Hounsou with whom she has a three-year-old-son.
Kimora showcased her life on the reality series Kimora: Life In The Fab Lane which aired on Style and featured her family and business as she ran Phat Fashions. Now that she and Dijimon have split–they never legally married in the United States but did participate in a traditional ceremony–Kimora is dishing on the importance of putting children first and focusing on the positive.
Bravo is inundating us with a whole host of outrageous new reality shows. As if Real Housewives wasn't enough to cause severe trauma and cardiac arrest, they've found even crazier, wilder famewhores to shove down our throats!
One of the new series hitting the network is Married To Medicine. Featuring four women who are married to prominent Atlanta doctors and two women who actually are prominent Atlanta doctors, the show promises to bring high drama to go along with high-incomes and advanced degrees. Cause I totally want my dermatologist purse-checking someone at an elite social event before strolling into the office to perform a peel.
It's a great day for Michael Lohan! Everyone's favorite famewhoring father of a trainwreck starlet has a new job. He's employed! Maybe now, he'll stop trying mooch money off poor Lindsay. Something tells me there isn't much to mooch these days…perhaps it's why he needed to find work.
Perez Hilton shares that Michael has landed a hosting gig on a Cheaters spin-off called Celebrity Cheaters. Let's all be honest, how much better would Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal have been had Michael Lohan been the one to bust her? I can picture it now. Granted, I am sure the show won't even focus on D-List celebrities. Something tells me that Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison may get some screen time, though!
Congratulations, Michael. This is certainly a subject you know a lot about!

Mary Mary fans will be thrilled to hear that WE tv just gave the green light for season 3 of the hit show!
The show, featuring gospel singers Erica and Tina Campbell, reached 5.2 million viewers in season 2 and led to WE giving the nod to a 10 episode run in season 3.
WE tv shared, "During the current season of Mary Mary, viewers witnessed two incredible births: Tina’s baby girl and Erica and Tina’s hit single, ‘Go Get It,’ which went on to win the duo a Grammy Award. It’s exactly this type of dimensionality that WE tv spotlights in women”.
Mary Mary is one of the most requested shows for us to recap and we wish we could! We have a list of shows we'd love to add to the weekly roster. Someday we'll have enough time to get to them all!
TheReal Girls Of The Bada-Bing follows the everyday lives of the strippers/exotic dancers who work at Satin Dolls (the club used as the Bada Bing on The Sopranos). Where does Kim G fit into all of this? Don't worry, she's not climbing a pole! Kim is actually an associate producer and the resident den mother, trying to help some of the girls.
The show is described as a little "Jersey Shore meets the Housewives meets the Sopranos". In the first season we'll witness an American Idol-style casting call, as well as spats among the girls – with each other and the customers. The dancers all lead very different lives and will be shown as they try to finish college, raise kids, and keep relationships going. Executive producer Tom Murro says, "it is a cutthroat biz and there can be only one pole queen." The network is a secret right now, but we're told it's a "good fit" for the show.

Reality television isn't all housewives and hip-hop and Kardashian krazy (thank goodness for small favors!. There are some lesser followed, but equally entertaining reality shows that will be making their way back onto your guide channel after becoming hugely popular in their first seasons.
Both Breaking Amish and King Of The Nerds will be returning after stellar ratings. TLC will be renewing its hit which followed a group of Amish and Mennonite young people who were supposedly shunned by their ultra conservative religious communities as they navigated the mean streets of New York City. Likewise, TBS will be bringing back it's wildly popular King Of The Nerds reality competition.
I remember a much simpler time when TLC was all about stories. There was A Makeover Story (fun fact: The Office's Angela Kinsey and her friend from an improv group were once on it before she became famous), A Dating Story, A Wedding Story, and (the only one still left) A Baby Story. Sure, it was a really long time ago, but The Learning Channel didn't used to be all about scary pageant moms, wedding dress salons, and Gypsy Sisters getting kicked out of hot pink stretch limos and tanning with motor oil. The only thing I learn from the network these days is how to make Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's sketti. I must add that my boyfriend Clinton Kelly calls TLC home, so he's bringing the class.
Now TLC is just ninety minutes up the coast from where I reside, in what may be South Carolina's version of the Jersey Shore. That's right! The Learning Channel has landed in Myrtle Beach, or "The Dirtle" as many call it. Don't get me wrong, Myrtle Beach is all kinds of fun and has a little of everything. It's like a tiny Vegas with a Planet Hollywood, a Hard Rock Cafe, and a giant shopping/restaurant/bar/music venue that spans city blocks and includes everything from Medieval Times to a mini Grand Ol' Opry that features singers who look just like actual country stars. Add in the helicopter tours and a shop on every corner that sells over priced beach towels, shark tooth necklaces, and hermit crabs, and you've got a little slice of heaven in the Palmetto State. Don't take my word for it–you can now see for yourself on TLC's new series Welcome to Myrtle Manor. Joking aside, I have friends from Myrtle Beach who are none too thrilled at the idea that this show is potentially mocking their hometown.
