So Christmas is over, New Year’s resolutions are still in those baby stages of not being broken, and it is that time of year where you guys send over your finest (?!) celebrities to put in the CelebrityBig Brother mixing pot for thirty days to simmer, annoy, and show us Brits how to do Reality TV.
I have had the pleasure of watching Big Brother for many years (although I’ve still not forgiven you for the offense-to-the-ears intrusion that was Perez Hilton), and we seem to have more and more input from our friends on your side of the ocean, so I thought it only fair I keep you updated on the activities on our side.
If you thought that Landon Clements looked familiar when she first joined Southern Charm, you might have caught on to something. No, you’re not going crazy. You might have actually seen her before on another TV series. Pre-Southern Charm, Landon appeared on the iconic reality series The Hills.
Wait. What!? She was on the show because she was friends with both Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. Not only that, but Landon also worked for events producer Brent Bolthouse, where Heidi also “worked.”
The people at MTV even approached Landon about being a full-time cast member, but she turned them down. Umm, come again?! The Hills was such a major television phenomenon. How could she not be into that? Well, it turns out that Landon had some pretty valid reasons to decline the offer.
On last night’s the Mother/Daughter Experiment, Dr. Debbie challenged the moms and daughters to participate in mock-funerals for each other. Oh goody! Most of the moms and daughters were deeply and profoundly moved by the experience – not Kim Richards!
Courtney Stodden and Krista Keller are such an extreme level of dysfunction it’s practically nullified the other moms/daughters, uniting them in their shared astonishment at the of f–ked uppityness. Everyone overtly gawks at the crazy. The collective question everyone wants an answer to: Why would Krista would allow her 16-year-old daughter to marry a 51-year-old? No one gets a straight answer, just a lot of subterfuge and obfuscation around the point.
Last night was the premiere of The Mother/Daughter Experiment, where six mother and daughter duos sought televised therapy to mend their complicated emotional issues. Becuase that always turns out well, right?!
Kim Richards and her daughter Kimberly Jackson arrive first. It’s clear that Kim is putting on an ‘I’m so not about drama’ act in the hopes that no one watching this show has also seen Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (We have.). It turns out the moms and daughters have to share a room, which isn’t too weird for Kim and Kimberly who usually share a bed. Kimberly seems sweet and like she was bamboozled into doing this.
Tonight is the Grammy Awards, which got us thinking about some of our favorite reality stars who have also embarked upon a music career but have never won a Grammy. I mean everyone on Bravo can’t be David Foster. Or Kandi Burruss!
Perhaps the Grammys actually need their own category for reality TV star singers?!
So as a shout-out in support of all those unrecognized reality stars-turned-pop stars here’s a run-down of some of our favorite hits from Real Housewives to Heidi Montag!

Airing on Lifetime, Kim and Kimberly, 21, will star alongside Heidi Montag, Courtney Stodden, and other famous-ish reality stars who have problematic and antagonistic relationships with their mothers or daughters for 8 weeks of intensive therapy to rebuild their relationships. Surprisingly Farrah Abraham and her mom Debra weren’t available to have more of their toxic insanity on display! Blame MTV for that one.
