Bravo’s reality shows are usually a hit or miss. NYC Prep is a perfect example of a miss, while their latest reality show, Miami Social is a hit.
Miami Social is my latest guilty pleasure. It was one of those shows I didn’t plan on watching or writing about, until I watched it, and realized I sorta loved it. This post will contain some spoilers of what is to come this season so do not read any further if you do not want to know what happens.
The biggest shocker of all is news that Hardy Hill is now married to someone who is not Trixia, his girlfriend of 6 years on the show. Hardi is married to a woman name Pachi Lake. I’m not certain how long ago this show was taped but he sure moves quickly. Hardi and Pachi have their facebook relationship statuses as being married to each other. A photo of the married couple is below.
In other news, it seems George’s “crazy” girlfriend, Lina Fidleris no longer pregnant. She looked very non pregnant at last month’s premier. Either she had the baby or decided not to have the baby. I’m leaning towards the later, not sure if the world was ready for a Lina mini me. I suspect George has some serious self esteem issues, for him to think he doesn’t deserve better than that. But then again, he probably just loves the drama. Some people get off on that.
It doesn’t seem Katrina and Ben Moss have reconciled their marriage. I know most fans, including me, would like to see them back together but I simply don’t see that happening. On the outside, they might seem like the picture perfect couple, but at the end of the day, no one knows what went on behind their closed doors. I admire Katrina’s entrepreneurship skills, and being a self proclaimed workaholic myself, I can see where she’s coming from. I however highly doubt I would ever put work before my loved ones. I love the quote someone said on the show – “No one ever lays on their death bed wishing they had spent more time working.” Enough said. I get the feeling Ben will have no problem picking up the pieces.
There are a lot of funny ramblings about Lina’s profession. Most people suspecting she might be some sort of escort. I honestly have no idea, but would not be surprised. It would actually make a lot of sense.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON MIAMI SOCIAL AND THE CAST?
The second season of Real Chance of Love is set to premier tonight on VH1 at 9/8c. Brothers Ahmad Givens and Kamal Givens aka Real and Chance are back for another quest at finding “true love.”
Season 1 ended with Chance picking no one, and Real picking Cornfed. Shockingly, the relationship between Real and Cornfed did not last. According to Cornfed, Real abruptly ended their relationship earlier this year. I’m guessing it’s tough to keep a relationship going knowing you have signed on to do a 2nd season of a dating reality show.
A new reality show, More To Love will debut on FOX tonight featuring Luke Conley as the leading man in search of love. The 26-yr-old real estate investor and sub-contractor was interviewed by PEOPLE about his participation in the first dating reality show featuring a full figured bachelor and bachelorettes.
The series will show Luke, who is 6?3? tall and weighs more than 300 lbs dating 20 bachelorettes in a quest to find love. Luke doesn’t reveal if he found love but he wants you to tune in and be a part of his journey as he embarks on love.
These are excerpts from the interview:
TV is a notoriously thin place, but there’s been an upswing in pleasantly plump programming. Why do you think that is?
Maybe they have wider angles on their cameras now so they can fit me on. Maybe the trend is heading in that direction because people are just looking for something new and more real.
Were you concerned about being the butt of a nationally televised joke?
I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.
Are you offended by the title?
The title is suiting. I’m a big man so I definitely have more love.
Has weight impacted your love life over the years?
In high school, it caused me to be somewhat bashful. I would find out about girls with crushes on me, but I never knew what to do about it. Bulking up wasn’t something I didn’t have a choice in. I was pursuing a football career. After traveling and in college, I never let it hold me back or stop me from approaching a woman I was interested in.
People are still buzzing about the season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belles: Lousiville, which revealed Jeff Stovall cheated on his fiance, Shea Johnson. To thicken the plot, the “other woman” just happened to be Louisville Judge, Katie King.
Katie had also appeared on previous episodes of the show due to cast member, Hadley, helping her with her campaign. The good folks at Springston blogspot (a blog about Louisville New & Politics) were able to get the above photo of Katie and Jeff. The picture was allegedly taken on July 10th during a birthday bash Katie threw for someone. Katie took down the pictures, but the Springston blogger was able to save a copy.
I wonder why Katie would take the pictures down if she had nothing to be ashamed of. And is it just me or does Katie look rather aged for being only 29 years old? Katie seems to be a rather controversial figure in the city of Louisville. There are rumors of drug use, as well as a supposed restraining order taken out against her by an ex boyfriend. Interesting.
There are also reports that Katie and Jeff are no longer together.
Are you ready for another reality show? Octuplet mother Nadya Suleman has recently signed a contract for a new reality show that will allow each of the children to get paid $250.00 per day. According to the documents, the show will premiere on Sept 1st.
The contracts were filed Friday in a Los Angeles Superior Court, however it requires approval from a judge. The European production company, Eyeworks, previously involved in other shows like “Breaking Bonaduce”, “The Biggest Loser” and is now working with Nadya.
The contract outlines that the kids will collectively earn $125,000 for 36 days of shooting in the first year of production, $75,000 for 21 days in the second year and $50,000 for 14 days in the third year. The contract also states that 15 percent of the gross compensation will be deposited by Eyeworks into a “Coogan Trust Account,” as required by California law. The account will not be accessed until the children turn 18 or become legally emancipated.
Nadya gave birth to Octuplets on Jan. 26, making them the world’s longest surviving octuplets. The public was outraged when they found out the Octuplet mum was receiving public assistance and already had 6 kids. With all the controversy surrounding Nadya, she became a media target and was under scrutiny.
VH1 has released the Supertrailer of the upcoming 2nd season of Real Chance of Love. You can see the official photos of the cast here, as well as personal/”modeling” photos of the ladies here and here.
Real Chance of Love 2: Back in the Saddle premieres Monday, August 3 at 9/8c. Will you be watching?
The season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belle: Lousville ended tonight with quite a shocker.
We first find out Kellie decided to stay in Louisville rather than moving to Chicago with her boyfriend, Jeff. Kellie decides to end her pattern of depending too much on the men in her life. Was very happy to see Kellie make this choice. Something about Jeff just doesn’t come off right. He seemed a bit cold in my opinion when telling Kelly he did not want to have children with her in the past episodes.
Julie decides to take charge of her life, and asks a younger guy out. The show says they two are still dating. Emily breaks the news of moving to Vegas to her father, who finally gives her his blessing. Hadley finally sees what we all see in Russ and decides to end things with him. We also find out Hadley and Kellie will be working together on Kelly’s new dating business – “Dating Sucks.“
The show definitely saved the best for last when we see a much thinner Shea tearfully talk about her heartbreak. Shea informs us that she found out her fiance, Jeff Stovall, was cheating on her the same week her mother died. To make things worse, Jeff was with the other woman the night her mom was being buried.
This was quite a shocker. Though I had heard the rumors that the engagement was over, I did not expect it to be due to infidelity. The two seemed to be loving together, especially when Shea gave in and agreed to get the big house Jeff wanted.
There is a rumor going around that the woman Jeff cheated with was Katie King. The same Katie that Hadley was campaigning for in earlier episodes. I’m not certain on the accuracy of this. Others are saying Jeff is still with the woman he cheated on Shea with, whomever that might be. I really felt for Shea tonight. Having to bury her mother and cancel her wedding in the same week has to be tough. According to the show, Jeff refused to appear on camera to talk about what happened.
UPDATE – It’s pretty much confirmed that the woman Jeff was cheating with was indeed Katie King. Shea also updated her facebook status last night sarcastically saying “Your Honor Katie King.” Katie is a Judge by the way. Pretty pathetic for someone in Katie’s position to do such a thing.
