Does the world really need one more teens-a-mess reality show?
According to Lifetime, yes. The network picked up eight hour-long episodes of a new series titled Teen Trouble. The show's host, Josh Shipp, is a teen behavior specialist, motivational speaker, and former advice correspondent for MTV's Total Request Live. He's also the author of The Teen's Guide to World Domination: Advice on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Awesomeness.
In Teen Trouble, Josh will "embed himself" into the "hidden lives" of teens who are abusing drugs and alcohol, stealing from family, and otherwise breaking the law. He will then confront the teens and parents with a few harsh truths.
Tia & Tamera star Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. Aden John Tanner Housley arrived in his own good time, two weeks after his due date. Aden weighed in at 9 lbs., 5 oz.
We suspected something was up when Tamera disappeared from Twitter on November 4th, leaving us all guessing as to when the big arrival would happen. I may or may not have put a Twitter text message alert on my phone if any sudden movements were detected on her account. Instead of taking the Twitter route, Tamera confirmed with People this afternoon that she gave birth yesterday at Cedars-Sinai.
Congrats to Tamera and Adam – we can't wait for pics!!
It looks like E! has another hit on their hands. The network announced that it has renewed Married to Jonas for a second season.
Since debuting in August, Married to Jonas has been E!'s highest rated hit in the 10 p.m. time slot on Sundays! The show features Kevin Jonasand his wife Danielle Deleasa as they navigate married life along with career and family.
E! shared in their announcement, “We are excited to continue following Kevin and Dani’s journey as they juggle love and marriage with pop superstardom and eager in-laws."
Yikes. We all speculate on whether reality shows are scripted or completely fake. Of course, no one ever comes out and says a show isn't legit…especially if it's the star of the show! I guess Dave Hester from Storage Wars didn't get that memo.
The star of the A&E hit has caused lots of drama with the network after rumors started swirling that he was saying the show isn't what it seems to viewers. What? Next, I'm going to hear that Si's beard on Duck Dynasty isn't real. I just don't know how much more of these crazy rumors I can take!
Well, it's Hurricane Sandy out there. I've already hunkered down with chicken wing dip and a vain hope that I won't lose power or internet while the winds howl wildly. And I'm not the only one, plenty of reality stars are stranded on the east coast trying to brave the hurricane.
We hope everyone is safe and in a comfortable place to ride out the storm!
The Kardashians' latest product venture has potentially landed them in hot water with a California business man. Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are releasing a new makeup line, which they've dubbed "Khroma", because it's some sort of Kardashian law that every product name and any potential husband's first name MUST start with a K. Okay, so that last one only applies to Kim, but still.
Anywho, the Kardashian sisters are launching their new makeup line, which will be on the lower end of the price scale in stores like CVS and Sears, but another makeup brand, Chroma, based in swanky Beverly Hills, is hopping mad over the name-jacking.
TLC's Breaking Amish debuted with an interesting premise. Featuring four Amish, Kate, Jeremiah, Abe, and Rebecca, and one Mennonite, Sabrina, TLC promised, "a never-before-seen look inside the lives of young men and women as they, for the first time, trade horse and buggy with taxi cabs to break out from their respective Amish/Mennonite communities in their pursuit to chase big dreams in the Big Apple." Not long after its premiere, however, it became very clear that Breaking Amish should have been titled Faking Amish. Almost immediately, several blogs and Facebook pages popped up, detailing how TLC misrepresented the cast… complete with photo and public record evidence.
TLC addressed the allegations with this statement: "There is a lot of information floating around about the group featured on Breaking Amish. Much of it is not true, but some of it is — and is addressed in upcoming episodes.” Thus far, TLC's in-episode explanations have been incredibly lame.
Yesterday, TLCannounced a two-part Breaking Amish reunion special. According to the press release, the cast will "disclose where their relationships currently stand with their family and friends" and address the "questions about the authenticity of their Amish and Mennonite backgrounds.”
Bobbi Kristina, her almost-brother/fiance Nick Gordon, and other family members and friends and celebs, including Imani Showalter, turned out for the premiere party at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.
This is one reality show I sort of hoped wouldn't come to fruition. I mean, this girl needs time to grieve her mother and get her life together and I just don't think reality TV is the best or healthiest post-loss project to jump into, but that's just me.
