Another season, another slew of reality series! As we head into the summer months, we need even more mindless television to distract us from the fact that the weather is beautiful and we're all stuck inside working for a living. I have to say, Ryan Seacrest's channel is stepping up to the plate–and stepping away from the Kardashians–to bring us a whole gamut of new entertainment.
According to an E! press release, we have lots to look forward to in the vein of new reality shows from the network. From the boys of The Wanted to the WWE to the gray flannel clad Bachelor (you know who I'm talking about!), there is sure to be something for everyone!
Bravo called, and it wants another hit series which could spark another Housewives-esque franchise! The network is known for its over the top reality series showing the drama and opulence of lives far outside the average viewer's reach (aka, me). It's fun to peek into someone else's money fueled lifestyle for an hour in the evenings.
True to form, the network is introducing a new series that will allow us to do just that with the privileged girls of Long Island. Get ready, RT readers, Princesses: Long Island is sure to be Andy Cohen's next train wreck of a series, and I, for one, can't wait!
If you can't get enough of the Style Network, with shows like Kimora: House of Fab, Jerseylicious, Glam Fairy, and Big Rich Texas, you'll want to check out these new shows!
Two shows, XOX Betsey Johnson and Resale Royalty, premiere Sunday, May 12 on Style. The remaining eleven titles are still under development.
XOX Betsey Johnson – For years, Betsey Johnson has led the fashion community with her youthful and eclectic styles, and she now gives viewers unprecedented access to her life with daughter Lulu.
Betsey and Lulu have always worked together to expand Betsey’s fashion empire, but the pressures of their business relationship have created a co-dependent mother-daughter relationship. Betsey and Lulu find their deeply entangled relationship will be tested as they evolve both professionally and personally.
Famewhore puppetmaster AndyCohen (who may or may not be taking over the world in a devious plot to inundate society with faux-blonde, surgically altered, fembots who'd do anything for their 15 minutes) recently did an interview where he talked all things Housewives.
Andy continued to insist the Housewives franchise wouldn't be adding any locations – at least not at the present time – and dished on why some ladies break-out into spinoff territory.
"Well, I mean, I always say 'Never say never,'" the WatchWhatHappensLive host tells TheWrap about extending the Housewives map. "But, I think we're pretty good and I still do think we are pretty good. I mean, we've got six going and it's great."
Cosmo: What are we going to see you doing on your new show?
Ryan Lochte: My biggest passion is swimming but it’s a sport that doesn’t really get talked about until the Olympics, unlike baseball, football, and basketball, which are on TV all the time. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do this show. I want people to enjoy the sport as much as I do. My whole family swims! You can pretty much say chlorine runs in our veins.
The new shows include The Lylas, Pregnant & Dating, and The Ruckers: Southern Royals.
The Lylas (pictured above) follows an up-and-coming pop group (of the same name) as they move from Hawaii to LA in search of their big break. The ladies – Tiara, Tahiti, Presley, and Jaime – are the sisters of singer-songwriter Bruno Mars.
