MTV's Big Tips Texas features four veteran and six newbie waitresses and/or bartenders at a bar named Redneck Heaven. Yes, it's as trashy as it sounds. What the girls lack in clothing, they make up for in eye shadow though, so it all balances out.
Big Tips Texas wants to be Coyote Ugly. It's not. They're not even from the same planet. Big Tips Texas turns out to be Buckwild meets Bad Girls Club. The girls liken themselves to a sisterhood (Sisterhood of the Traveling Coochie Shorts?) or a sorority (No. Just no.).
The veterans and newbies do not work (or play) well together.
Judging by the RHOBH trailerBrandi does get a teensy bit out of control this season, and Joyce has no problem speaking up. "I'm very opinionated." So basically she's the new season 1 Camille Grammer. "That's just so pernicious. So pernicious." Pernicious anyone?! "I'm very outgoing. I'm a little bit loud. I've never been a wallflower."
Not surprisingly, Bravo's favorite potty-mouthed Polish beauty has her take on what happened, and she's never one to hold back. Joanna remains vehemently loyal to Lea and is quick to belittle her fiance's feelings in one breath and then praise him with the next. She's exhausting, no?
Last night was the premiere of Oxygen's Preachers of L.A. To be honest, I am not really sure what to think. One guy looks like Billy Dee Williams and used to fancy the angel dust. I swear another one of the ministers is twins with D.J. Drew from Love & Hip Hop. They all drive ridiculously expensive luxury sports cars, and they appear to have more money than God. Pun clearly intended.
I am extremely intrigued by the entire premise of the show. It's likely going to be very controversial, and I apologize in advance if I offend anyone with my attempts to recap–and snark–on a show about men of the cloth.
We are first introduced to Bishop Dietrick Haddon. He describes himself as "a preacher, a pastor, a gospel entertainer, and a Grammy nominee." Impressive! He was called to minister at a young age, and he preached his first sermon at age eleven.
Dietrick married young and went through a contentious divorce. In the midst of the dramatic split, Dietrick relocated from Detroit to Los Angeles where he met Dominique. Soon after they started dating, Dominique became pregnant. Not yet divorced and fathering a child out of wedlock, Dietrick believed he had two strikes against him. Now engaged to Dominique, he is working on making his choir an international success.
They'll be back before you know it! Yes, I'm talking about the less violent but equally ridiculous compared to their counterparts women of Basketball Wives: L.A. VH1 seems to have us in some sort of choke hold with these girls, yet I don't fight it. Odd, I know.
With some new cast members in the mix (and the Sisters Govan departing), hopefully there will be some new excitement in BBW: LA (read: not boring as heck). Not surprisingly, the show's breakout star Draya Michele is all about promoting the series (and herself of course) to whoever will listen.
