If you've been watching anything on MTV, chances are you've seen previews for it's new reality show Buckwild. It's like Jersey Shore, but with rednecks…and a lot of dangerous looking antics. I think it would make Honey Boo Boo proud.
Remember when Italian Americans and the citizens of New Jersey had such an issue with our favorite GTLers? Well, West Virginians and Southerners are feeling the same way about Buckwild. I have to say though that all of this controversy is making me want to watch the insanity…even though, as a Southerner, I should be totally offended.
Bravo took a leap of stupidity faith, probably hoping for some big ratings, and shelled out big money to have Lindsay Lohan participate in an episode of Million Dollar Decorators.
All was going fine at first, with Lindsay playing along and filming the process of picking out the approximately $200,000 in swag for her rented mansion earlier this spring. Things went south when the show needed to film the big reveal with the troubled starlet, who blew them off and refused to finish taping the footage needed.
Going ahead without her and filming it at the house was out of the question because the home was reportedly so trashed and messy that there's no way they could recreate the final look. To salvage the episode in the only way they could, the producers were forced to cobble together some post-renovation footage that was taped along the way without Lindsay.
They really can't act too surprised over this. The woman is notorious for being an unreliable, uncooperative mess for the past how many years…
TELL US – SHOULD BRAVO SUE LINDSAY FOR SABOTAGING THE EPISODE?
Once again it has been a busy week in the world of reality TV. We saw a lot of drama – on and off the shows and attempted to keep up with the non-stop gossip! Here's a look at what you might have missed!
Mark was introduced in season two andhas been featured a handful of times since then. But, if A&E and Dave don't settle their feud soon, we could be seeing a lot more of him. An inside source told RadarOnline, "They think they are going to use this guy to replace Dave Hester."
Now that Mark is thisclose to being promoted to a full-time reality TV star, it has been revealed that he recently spent 45 days in jail.
Well, nothing has changed, A&E and Dave are still at war. He only appeared on the show last night because it was taped before the network locked him out of production. Locked! Out!
Love him or hate him,Dave Hester is arguably the show's biggest star. However, according to an inside source, the ratings for the show have declined and it is no longer A&E's top priority. "Inside the network, the feeling is 'we're going to tape this show with or without you,'" a source told RadarOnline.
"The network and production company has the power," the source explained. "The rest of the cast is working without having their contract issues fully worked out … but Hester simply is not allowed to tape, as he has no offer."

TLC promoted Breaking Amish as a show about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, leaving their communities to experience life beyond the church. Millions tuned in to watch Kate Stoltzfus, Abe Schmucker, Rebecca Byler, Jeremiah Raber, and Sabrina High walk away from their family and friends to chase their dreams in New York. We felt sorry for these people for being exploited by TLC but the joke was on us! Almost immediately, Breaking Amish was proven to be a sham.
Kate, Abe, Rebecca, Jeremiah, and Sabrina weren't as new to modern electronics, driving cars, and English clothes as they portrayed themselves to be on the show. For crying out loud, most of the cast had marriages, divorces, and children below their belts before TLC supposedly plucked them from the farm. However, there's no doubt in my mind that TLC knew all of this and coached them to "play Amish" for the sake of the cameras. I also think TLC hoped the viewers would figure it out, expose the cast's lies, and create a huge scandal. And that's exactly what happened. Does this bring us back to feeling sorry for the poor kids? For me, no, because most of them acted like jerks when their lies were exposed.
Apparently, fake stories, liars, and misogynistic a**holes (looking at you, Jeremiah) sell, because Breaking Amish was a ratings success for TLC. There are rumors about a second season, but Kate reportedly doesn't want anything to do with Breaking Amish Season 2.
