TLC’s latest polygamist show, My Five Wives promised to bring an “honest, fresh look at this very controversial lifestyle,” when it premiered last summer. But what they failed to mention was that the show would follow star, Brady Williams, not just in his relationships with his wives: Paulie, Robyn, Rosemary, Nonie, and Rhonda along with their 24 children. But also as he went head-first into debt.
Earlier this year, Brady took the drastic step to file for bankruptcy claiming to only have a little over $3.00 in his savings account, but having over $400,000 in debt. But now a judge has smiled down on him and wiped away three-quarters of his debt.
VH1 renewed Candidly Nicole for a second season! Based on Nicole Richie‘s hilarious Twitter feed, Candidly Nicole follows Nicole as she tackles every day life situations and shares her views on style, relationships, work, and more.
The concept is simple – but Nicole‘s lovely personality and witty sense of humor make for a great show. Candidly Nicole is a refreshing change of pace from the housewives drama, hip hop drama, couples drama, etc. Bring on season two!
MTV: “Slednecks is a weekly half-hour comedic docu-series following a group of ‘outdoor tough’ friends living in the rural town of Wasilla, Alaska. With mountains and rivers as their playground, these close friends make the most of what they have while always having a blast doing it. Polar Bear plunges, airboating on ice, glacier parties, river wakeboarding, and human catapulting are just some of the adventures these ‘Sled-necks’ get into, while also navigating dramatic friendships and relationships in the prime of their lives.”
Slednecks premieres October 30 on MTV. Check out the trailer below.
When Vh1 debuted their new dating show, Dating Naked, I am sure they had high hopes of the show becoming a trending topic across social media. The show — which is exactly what is sounds like, contestants who have never met, date, while naked — has become a trending topic, but not for breaking ratings records.
Instead, everyone seems to be talking about the fact that a contestant has now sued Vh1’s parent company Viacom as well as two production companies because the show showed her too naked. For real!
“The ladies embark on a whirlwind journey of breakups, make-ups, milestone birthdays, vacations, and even a wedding,” says TLC. “Just when all the codes of gypsy culture seem apparent, they break the rules and undergo shocking transformations in the most jaw-dropping season of Gypsy Sisters yet.”
Nettie, Mellie, JoAnn, Kayla, and Annie are back, and according to TLC, they’re bigger, badder, and better than ever. No doubt, The Learing Channel at its finest. Season two castmember Sheena turned down an offer to return. Find out what the Gypsy Sisters have been up to and see a sneak peek below.
VH1 promises: “A new group of R&B and hip hop hopefuls have their eyes on the prize and are ready to deliver the shock, drama, and scandal as only the #1 social show of the summer can do. With the music industry constantly evolving, these artists’ unwavering ambition keeps them hustling to stay at the top and willing to lay it all on the line.”
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood premieres September 15 on VH1. Rumor has is that the cast and their storylines leave a lot to be desired – Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Atlanta anymore – we shall see! Check out the full cast and sneak peek below.
Well, we have not seen the last of Kate Gosselin and her eight kids just yet. After the success of the Kate Plus 8 summer special that aired in June, yesterday TLC announced they filming again and the new special will air this December.
The news comes more than three years after the cancellation of Kate Plus 8, which had morphed from Jon & Kate Plus 8 after Jon Gosselin left the show in 2009. At the time, Kate was very public about her inability to care for her kids without her reality show income. Well with these specials, perhaps she can worry no more.
“It is exciting that the continued success of Hollywood Exes has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” shares VH1‘s EVP Susan Levison. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the Exes brand down South was a natural evolution. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene .”
VH1 promises us “fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.” I’m anxious to see if this show fares well. Hollywood Exes has a small – but loyal – fan base. VH1 hasn’t promoted Atlanta Exes much, but reality shows based in Atlanta usually do well, so we shall see. Atlanta Exes premieres August 18 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1. Meet the cast and watch the extended trailer below.
