The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations are in and reality TV made it in again – some of the shows/stars for the second year in a row! Four reality categories are included in this year’s nominations! Check out the nominees below and tells us – who else deserved a nod? Which shows, hosts, stars deserved a little Emmy love?
The network was reportedly hoping that viewer fascination with the Duggar brood and the popularity of eldest girls Jana, Jill and Jessa was enough to salvage the already controversial show, but the fallout from the discovery that Josh molested his sisters and other girls as a teen refused to die-down. In fact it seemed to be exacerbated by Josh’s wife Anna’s fourth pregnancy and the Duggar family’s refusal to really confront the situation honestly or to treat their daughters as victims.
Today the network finally announced that the Duggars would no longer be returning to TV. This morning a network representative informed the Associated Press that the Duggars “will no longer appear on the air.”
To soften the blow of the cancellation of NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches, Bravo is giving us Reza Farahan and Tabatha Coffey. They won’t be on a road trip together, because I would like to think not even Bravo would do that to our beloved Tabatha, but they have each scored a potential new show.
Bravo announced three new shows in development yesterday – Yours, Mine or Ours (same premise as Love It or List It on HGTV), Heir Heads, and Tabatha’s Life Take Over (similar to Iyanla: Fix My Life). Check out the press release below and let us know which of these new reality shows you plan to watch.
NeNe’s also denying that career moves had much to do with her decision to leaveRHOA, period, claiming that it was only after she announced her departure from RHOA that To Tell the Truth reached out to her. She recently told Extra TV, “the moment I announced it, ‘To Tell The Truth’ producers reached out and said come over here and play with us at ‘To Tell The Truth,’ this would be a great place for you to come.”
Considering the mess Kim made out of her daughter’s wedding, I am sure the entire family let out a huge sigh of relief when she decided to stay put. As for those who did attend, Paris Hilton, Barron Hilton, Kyle Richards, and more, see the behind-the-scenes photos they shared below.
Filming of the Real Housewives of New York reunion special is getting underway and Page Six is already reporting that Sonja Morgan is planning to come in with guns blazing for her castmates who’ve dogged her all season about her drinking, erratic behavior, and clothing line (or lack thereof), and especially for their “rude” behavior during a Turks and Caicos trip that she asserts she treated them to.
Still raw months after the trip, Sonja claims “there was not one thank-you for taking the cast to the islands,” and she plans to “strike back” at the ladies during reunion taping for their crass and callous behavior toward her. The Turks and Caicos trip, which spans the final four episodes of RHONY this season, showed an increasingly ticked-off Sonja exploding at her castmates last week for insinuating she had a drinking problem. “She feels there’s just been criticism of her life and her lifestyle,” says the source.
This week brings us the return of Teen Mom 2, featuring Jenelle Evans, Kail Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah MesserSimmsCalvert Messer, as well as the series premiere of Million Dollar Listing San Francisco. “The series follows the lives of three ambitious real estate agents, Justin Fichelson, Andrew Greenwell, and Roh Habibi, as they strive to outsell one another in an emerging market filled by young tech millionaires,” shared Bravo. “From the breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge to the highs of the Twin Peaks, these brokers-by-the-bay are listing some of the most expensive and architecturally unique properties in the country. The competition is steep and these agents are always rushing to find their next golden listing and billionaire client.”
Take a look at the reality TV listings, which includes the Watch What Happens Live guests for the week, and let us know what you plan to watch.
