"Our latest crop of development is all about connecting Bravo viewers with who they definitely must know and what they absolutely cannot live without," sharedBravo's SVP of Development Lara Spotts. "From a glimpse inside a luxury ski resort to a curation of what is new and what is next, Bravo has its finger on the pulse of the latest trends for our viewers to keep up at the water cooler."
Patti Stanger is one of three executive producers behind Family Love, which follows Lisa Galos and her unconventional family of matchmakers, including her beautiful single daughter, gay son, ex-husband, and even her ex-husband’s former mistress. Family Love follows Lisa and her offbeat family as they set up singles (and probably not-so-single since Bravo's involved) in Chicago.
Like her or love her, no one can deny that Teresa Giudice has had one helluva an interesting life! Between her felonious husband, to her feuding family, to her experiences on Real Housewives of New Jersey, to raising Milania! to her own experiences as a soon-to-be-con, she's lived through it.
Sources say Teresa, a savvy business woman despite her pre-school vocabulary, is "working furiously" to write a shocking tell-all about her scandalous life! “She’s been approached and offered big money for her tell-all," a source reveals to Radar Online. "There are a lot of publishers who want to get her locked down and make sure they have the book in-house.”
Andy Cohen has a string of hit shows under his belt. Not only is he the hilarious host of Watch What Happens Live! The former Bravo executive is also responsible for the entire housewives franchise, as well as Tabatha's Salon Takeover, The Millionaire Matchmaker, Fashion Hunters, The Fashion Show, The Rachel Zoe Project, Shear Genius as well as Project Runway, Top Design and several Kathy Griffin specials.
Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Andy is shopping a new show, I Slept With A Celebrity.
VH1 announced the new Couples Therapy cast late last week. Season five will feature former porn star Jenna Jameson & John Wood, Big Brother's Dick Donato & Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, former Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese & Chris Buckner, and Naughty By Nature's Treach & Cicely Evans. As a huge fan of Big Brother, I am looking forward to seeing Evel Dick again!
Not impressed with the cast? Ess okay, there's more!
According to E!, Bachelor mistake Juan Pablo Galavis and his chosen one Nikki Ferrell have joined the cast, but they were not mentioned in the press release due to Juan's contract. "It's true they're doing it," confirmed a source. "The reason it wasn't put in the press release is due to Juan Pablo's deal with ABC. It's not up until August, so, contractually, it can't be mentioned until then."
Well, if his book does what it he claims it will, Fredrik Eklund is going to be karate chopping his way to even more money! The green tea swilling star of Million Dollar Listing: New York not only kills it in the world of real estate, he plans to take the New York Times bestseller list by storm as well.
The New York Post speculated that Fredrik and lifestyle guru Bruce Littleton just inked a six-figure deal to write a book to be published by Penguin which shares "the tricks used to convince people 'to love you, listen to you and buy whatever you are selling.'” Where do I sign up for my advance copy?
Last night was the series premiere of Ladies of London. I'm interested, although I wish there were more Brits than Americans living in London. I deal with enough American famewhores, I want to learn about some international ones!
Right away we meet the doyenne of the franchise Caroline Stanbury. Caroline is authentic British aristocracy and royalty. She owns and runs a luxury concierge service and lives in a massive home down the street from Brangelina. She's fabulously British and serves as the show's narrator of all things Brit and Class. I imagine her holding a clipboard, Burberry cat eyes perched on her nose, as she scores all the infractions of social impropriety. Basically you can tell within 6 seconds of her meeting the American caste of her class that she regrets getting involved in this nonsense and feels it's her duty to separate herself in everyway possible from their gauche behavior.
So yes, Shannon Beador and Heather think their holiday cards are on par with the White House's in terms of preeminent importance. Shannon tells us that people look forward to her card every year and Heather gives a gushing speech about what it represents to her family (Time immemorial? Neil deGrasse Tyson joke!). They both hire full glam crews and professional photography teams to make these visions come to life. I think I saw Anna Wintour scuttling around behind the ladder in Heather's shoot.
It's nice to know that I have some things in common with these two wealthy beacons of the upper echelons – because even though I take my holiday photo with an iPhone, my kids misbehave just as much as Heather and Shannon's do! Anyway, Heather is taking her card in what looks like the parking lot of a storage facility. Maybe since they're between mega mansions she's going for homeless chic?
Get the Emmys ready, the crew of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is all about the heavily scripted drama these days, and it gets more and more obvious each week. Let's get started with the recapped madness, shall we?
Because Mimi Faust cares far too much about her ex's marital status to Joseline Hernandez, Benzino believes the best way to squash their beef is to facilitate a meeting with Mimi,Stevie J., and Dawn. Seriously, how did Dawn land a role on this show? There are so many extras getting screen time this season, it's confusing! Sleazo arrives ready to shut down the Inspector Gadget asses who are hell bent on taking down Hip Hop Weekly. Stevie promises 'Zino that he and Joseline are, in fact, married, but Mimi wants the magazine to print a retraction. Stevie thinks that Mimi must still love him to go to all of this trouble, and he taunts her with his best rat face, saying that he's his own country who doesn't need to follow the laws–or marriage license filings–of the regular folk. He stutters again on his wedding date. So, this is what makes a story line? Geez, Mona. You should've run with the sex tape for a few more episodes!
