Apparently VH1 wants to revitalize NBC's "Must See TV" Thursday. They are really pushing their "hot new summer line-up" for Thursdays, which includes Dating Naked, #CandidlyNicole, andLeAnn & Eddie and kicks off July 17.
Dating Naked? Awesome. Nicole Richie? No complaints here.LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian? Um, err, at least it's not Brandi! Obviously this line-up will go down in history books as the new The Cosby Show, Cheers, and L.A. Law or Friends, Will & Grace, and ER can't miss Thursday night!
Mark your calendars, my friends, because VH1 is where it's at this summer. To be clear: No – I did not type any of that with a straight face. But I am looking forward to #CandidlyNicole despite the hashtag. Also, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle returns and Atlanta Exes premieres later this summer.
Last year the couple came out as broke and super hard-up for money. After a reality TV project about them moving to a cabin with their 4 kids failed to take off, Dean's mistress, the comically named Emily Goodhand, emerged in the tabloids and shortly after Dean entered rehab for undisclosed (ahem… sex) addictions.
And the reality TV offers came pouring in again! A spurned and furious Tori was reportedly using True Tori to humiliate her husband and was one step away from filing for divorce while Dean groveled for another chance. As you recall, Tori and Dean got together when they were still married to other spouses.
Now, according to the sleuths at Jezebel, Tori and Dean may be faking the scandal to revitalize their stagnant reality careers! A breakdown of the evidence is below.
As you know, Bethenny filed for sole custody over a year ago, and she and Jason have been battling it out in court ever since, all the while sharing their high dollar apartment. In the meantime, Bethenny has been linked to different men as Jason plays the doting dad card when the paparazzi are around. Who knows if it's sincere, but he certainly seems to be winning the public's sympathy in this circus.
This news is bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S!). Okay, it's actually pretty spot on as reality news goes. The Voice is getting some new blood next season so that Christina Aguilera can rest up during her pregnancy. The eighth season of the hit singing competition is set to begin filming in June.
Christina has always traded off seasons with Usher and Shakira, but now she'll be making room for everyone's favorite hollaback girl. I have "no doubt" this newbie will be a great addition to the competition (whoa, that was bad.).
Let's say your husband cheated on you and you had the opportunity to humiliate him on national TV. You would do it, right? Well that is just what Tori Spelling plans to do on her new Lifetime show True Tori. At least according to insiders, who claim that she is looking to 'humiliate' her husband Dean McDermott for his extramarital affair.
In December, the story broke that McDermott had cheated on his wife of seven years with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand. Looking to repair the damage, McDermott checked into rehab for "health and personal issues". But the damage had already been done and the future for the reality stars seems pretty bleak.
I'm going to go out on a limb here…if you don't want people to judge your most intimate situations, perhaps you shouldn't film said situations as the story line for a docu-drama in which cameras follow you and your cheating husband into marital counseling for his highly publicized affair(s?). There is no need to go Spelling out all of your issues on reality television.
Here's the short sTori: Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott met on set (the original Cibrian-Rimes love story), left their spouses, and then married each other. While having four kids, they proceeded to live life on reality shows that encompassed the couple in every situation from Bed and Breakfasts to family life. Back in December, Dean strayed with a woman who saw dollar signs and sold her story to a tabloid. Since then, Tori footed the bill for his sex addiction rehab while trying to prove to the world that they were still one big happy family. Now, they have filmed the healing process (or maybe final good-bye?) of their union for Lifetime with a show called True Tori which begins April 22.
I'm no marriage counselor, but I'd imagine the best thing to do in the wake of your husband's very public cheating scandal would be to film a reality show about trying to make your relationship work. Tori Spelling agrees, which is why her latest reality show with husband Dean McDermott focuses on their marital strife.
True Tori premieres April 22nd on Lifetime, and the teaser is extremely dramatic…to put it mildly. Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer my Dean and Tori in heavily-scripted situations involving guncles and bed and breakfast endeavors. This is just too raw…at least that's what I gathered from the thirty second clip!
NeNe Leakes turned the tables on Andy Cohen in a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. Nene got Andy to confess who has the say in casting the Real Housewives, whether he only hires Housewives with money and are heading for bankruptcy and so much more. Andy even slams the other "wives" style copycat ripoff shows.
Andy reveals that his favorite Real Housewives franchise is "the one that I'm watching; the one I'm screening. I go all over the map. Atlanta makes me laugh the hardest. It's consistently the funniest, although new York makes me [laugh] too."
The most fashionable franchise is Beverly Hills. "I think Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta have the most fashion." What do you like about BH? "I like seeing their houses. The weather is always great and they're always outside. And it's all roses and hair and.."
NeNe asks, do you have a hand in hiring and firing housewives? "I do". NeNe squawks, "So if anything ever happens to me, I need to come for you? What! are you kidding me?" Andy asks if she seriously knew that or not and she swears she had NO idea.
