It’s getting to be that time again! We can stop watching reruns and fillers, because soon our favorite reality shows, along with a few new train wrecks will be premiering. VH1 has just released the premiere dates of three of its programs.
T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle will be returning on Monday, September 3rd at 9PM ET. We’ll follow Tip (who may be the busiest dude in the world) as he continues to star in the Starz series “Boss” and prepares to film the movie “Identity Theft” with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. As if that’s not enough, he’ll be promoting his new book and releasing his ninth album…all while filming his family’s reality show.
I feel like I’m living in a parallel universe. Evelyn Lozada, wine bottle throwing star of Basketball Wives will be appearing on Oprah‘s OWN Network on a show called Iyanla Fix My Life.
Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that Evelyn‘s life is the one being fixed, apparently she’s participating in a work-out segment so all of y’all can fix your lives to be more like Evelyn’s! Correction from Evelyn’s team: “Iyanla was showing Evelyn how to relax and get in her ZEN moment. The shooting actually took place at Evelyn’s home where Iyanla met with her family.”
Taking to her blog, Evelynannounced: “Hey Everyone! I’m with Iyanla and can’t wait for you guys to see me on her show ‘Iyanla Fix My Life’ on OWN - Oprah Winfrey Network in September.”
“She’s a Johnson!” Shaunie gushed to Vh1, adding that everything about the day was perfect. As for the bride and groom they looked amazing according to Shaunie. Describing Chad’s outfit, Shaunie shares: “When he came down [the aisle], that boy was sharp! I’ve been talking about his outfit ever since I left. He look so good!”
Ocho sported a navy blue “rich looking suit” that was “tailored perfectly.” And his shoes even matched his outfit. Well, that’s success! “They went with that suit and that wedding,” a happy drunk Shaunie slurred announced.
If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared a photo from dinner with former RHONJ co-star Dina Manzo: “Had dinner with @DinaManzo last night. So great to have a girls night out! Love love love her! xx The beautiful blonde on the left with me & Dina is Jackie — she’s the one who first introduced us. Love her!! xx”
