In today's shocking news, former spouses Jon and Kate Gosselin still aren't getting along. The one time laid back member of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 duo is decidedly more low key these days. Thankfully, Jon is no longer dating nannies, abusing Ed Hardy (that we know of), or hanging with Michael Lohan. As for Kate, she's basically the same, but tanner with a much more expensive lifestyle and sense of entitlement. It's a wonder these two didn't work…
While Jon and Kate struggle to get along, their eight children are the ones who suffer. Jon is quick to mention this to Oprah Winfrey. See how casually I mentioned that? Yes, Jon is going to be interviewed by the Big O for her series Where Are They Now?
Hold onto your… CMT awards? There's a trashy really amazing new reality show on the way about the famous wives of Nashville. So this is like the soap opera Nashville only with less hottie McDeacon and more crazie mcblondie reality stars. Sign me up!
Private Lives of Nashville Wives will be coming to TNT in a few months and the network must know they have a hit on their hands because they are unveiling the brand new bunch of famewhore wannabes cast already! Let's meet the ladies. I can presumptively call them "ladies" because I haven't seen them in action yet.
Let's meet these ladies!

Another day, another diss aimed at Bethenny Frankel's talk show. Maybe it's time for Reality Tea to create a new category just for bethenny bashing!
Bethenny's talk show debuted in September and has yet to find an audience. It's falling way behind competitors like Queen Latifah, Wendy Williams, and Steve Harvey. Color me not shocked! I don't watch any of their shows, but I have a hunch their guests are a lot more interesting and likable than the likes of Farrah Abraham and Kate Gosselin.
Today's diss suggested that audience members have been complaining aboutBethenny's standoffish personality. "She's cold and only walks in when she has to tape and walks out," claimed an inside source. "We're told some guests have even emailed complaints to the producers."
I think we can pretty much credit MTV with the birth of reality television thanks to the explosion of The Real World, but it didn't stop there. Think about all of the families we watch on a weekly basis, from the Robertsons to the Kardashians to everyone in between. Where did the madness begin? Some may say with a ride on the crazy train courtesy of The Osbournes. Don't act like you didn't watch!
We saw Jack and Kelly Osbourne grow up on camera (although eldest daughter Amy didn't participate) with the always hilarious chirping busybody of a "mum" Sharon and bumbling, mumbling former death metal star Ozzy. And, of course, don't forget their tiny pooches! Now Kelly is a fashion consultant for E! and Jack is family man–how precious is his wife? (pictured with him and his parents above)–currently competing on Dancing with the Stars…but do they ever think about going back to the days of reality television's first family?
Bethenny Frankel is upping the ante as far as guests on her talk show goes. She's graduated from her recent parade of Bravolebrities to the one woman who we have to thank for putting her on the air–Ellen DeGeneres. "Thank" may not be the word you would use, but as far as I'm concerned, Ellen can do no wrong. And who knows, maybe this is just another lesson in random acts of kindness courtesy of Ellen.
When Ellen appeared via satellite (is that what they still call it?) on bethenny yesterday, Bethenny introduced her by saying, "I am so excited and honored to tell you who my first guest is today. It's a woman who I trust, who I admire, who I love, who I respect. She's the most talented women on the planet in my book and she's the reason that I have a show today. I am so grateful to her, for this opportunity. Please welcome my friend and mentor Ellen DeGeneres."
Since the demise of the Style Network, I've been anxious to find out what will happen to a few of my favorite reality shows. While some of Style's lineup will simply disappear, a few shows will likely end up on E!, Oxygen, or Bravo.
The thought of never seeing my favorite Big Rich Texas stars again gives me a serious case of the sads. Le sigh. So, when Melissa Poe tweeted that she's involved with a new reality series, I may have let out a happy little squee.
MTV's Typhani Morgan desperately wants us to know that Big Tips Texas has heart. AWW. She insists her Redneck Heaven reality show isn't all about fights and drama, and then she and Morgan Adler endlessly talk about the catty girl drama on Big Tips Texas.
Clear as rodeo mud?
"A lot of other reality shows rely on cat fights and feuding to draw in viewers," says Typhani. "Our show, yes we have drama, but there's a lot of heart that goes into it. It makes it really relatable instead of just cat fights all the time."
