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."
Kimora: House of Fab follows these style savvy professionals as they work to bring affordable fashion to the digital forefront at one of the go-to online platforms for high fashion looks. From innovative ad campaigns, celebrity events, and New York Fashion Week, Kimora: House of Fab is a glimpse into the high-tech world of a fashion dot-com and the fiercely chic employees who make it all come together.
The first show, tentatively titled Taking Atlanta, will feature a "group of aspiring and ambitious Atlanta locals as they make their mark in the arenas of fashion, music, hospitality and real estate while exploring the city’s sizzling social scene and balancing the demands of their tumultuous family situations."
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.
We get our first look at the new show in this highlight reel released by Bravo and now I see why Lisa was able to remain on season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND tape a spinoff show – because (from the glimpse in the video) she won't be the main focus on Vanderpump Rules! After watching the trailer, it seems as if it will be more about the drama in the lives of her employees at Sur. I have to admit that I have the sads after watching and seeing that Lisa's fabulosity won't be the central focus.
Take a look and tell us what you think. Will you tune in for "employees gone wild"?

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.
