While some of you hunker down and wait for the plows to unbury you from the snowfall of Nemo, curl up with Reality Tea and catch up on all the news, recaps, and photos from the past week in reality TV. Maybe try to solve a blind item or two!
Hold onto your wine glasses because a bigger trainwreck than Jenelle Evans is headed your way. Yes, Jenelle's idol Ke$ha just announced that she will be unveiling a new "docu-series" (fancy way of saying reality show) about her life on MTV.
Oh goody – Jenelle and Ke$ha will be co-stars, well kinda. They'll be sharing a network at least. Cue the comparisons for who is a bigger mess starting: now!
Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life will chronicle her journey from noname mess to household name (and symbol) mess. SheKnows reports that each 30 minute episode will feature a portion of Ke$ha's rise from wannabe popstar to superstar and is produced by her brother, an award-winning filmmaker named Lagan Sebert.
As if West Virginia didn't have enough of an issue with the kids from Buckwild, now TLC is bringing us Gypsy Sisters from the hills of Martinsburg. We first met Mellie on My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding as the stripper with a heart of gold penchant for violence. Now she's joined by her older sister Nettie, cousin Kayla, and friend Laura. Admittedly, I am fascinated with the gypsy culture.
The show follows the four women and their families, as they bling, tat, clean, tan, and engage in vicious fist fights. Ah, yes, The Learning Channel at it's finest. I am glad to see that it's keeping up with all of the other high brow reality networks. That said, I will totally be watching this madness. It's like the Bad Girls Club, but with gypsies! And just wait until you hear what Nettie's grandchildren are named. You just can't make this up, people…you. just. can't. The show premieres on TLC at 9PM ET on Sunday February 10th.

This is a rumor no more! Kris Jenner has landed a talk show!
There has been buzz for a long time that the Kardashian matriarch was in talks for her own show, but now it has become a reality! Fox stations in a few markets are going to test out the show this summer. This is similar to the "summer tryout" that was given to BethennyFrankel.
It will be a daily one-hour talk show that will feature celebrity guests along with basic lifestyle chatter, as well.
EVP of Twentieth TV, Stephen Brown, shared “The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines. At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner – a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host.”
Lisa has filed a lawsuit against a website commenter named Jessica Lederman for making false accusations about her. Jessica allegedly wrote comments claiming that Lisa "was an escort who also did soft porn in Vegas".
Lisa isn't taking the remarks siting down and filed a lawsuit, asking for $15,000 in damages! She claims that the random commenter has "damaged her reputation and threatened both her employment and social life."
Kim G. and her crew of "The New Jersey Socialites" have been busy filming their premiere episodes. Earlier this week they filmed for a good cause: the #ForNico charity event, held at Seasons. Nico Santoli, the 22-month-old son of Bergen Catholic football and wrestling coach Dominic Santoli and Christina Santoli, is battling Unilateral Retinoblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer that affects the eyes. The benefit dinner helped raise funds for his mounting medical bills.

It's been pretty quiet on the Heidi Montag/Spencer Prattfront lately. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining! Reality's most hated couple has been engaging in their inappropriate and selfish behavior across the pond, and I have to give Britain a slow clap for keeping them over there as long as it has.
If Speidi gets their (it's?) way, the disastrous duo will have a gig all of their own soon…no more slumming it on "celebrity" reality competitions. It kind of makes you feel sorry for the United Kingdom, doesn't it?
