I think we can pretty much credit MTV with the birth of reality television thanks to the explosion of The Real World, but it didn't stop there. Think about all of the families we watch on a weekly basis, from the Robertsons to the Kardashians to everyone in between. Where did the madness begin? Some may say with a ride on the crazy train courtesy of The Osbournes. Don't act like you didn't watch!
We saw Jack and Kelly Osbourne grow up on camera (although eldest daughter Amy didn't participate) with the always hilarious chirping busybody of a "mum" Sharon and bumbling, mumbling former death metal star Ozzy. And, of course, don't forget their tiny pooches! Now Kelly is a fashion consultant for E! and Jack is family man–how precious is his wife? (pictured with him and his parents above)–currently competing on Dancing with the Stars…but do they ever think about going back to the days of reality television's first family?
Tonight is Kim Kardashian's big ole birthday bash in Las Vegas and one of Hollywood's largest media outlets was BLACKLISTED from the soiree by pimpmama Kris! Access Hollywood went public with the behind-the-scenes insanity, claiming that they were given the boot from tonight's festivities and it's all because they were HONEST when they gave a less than stellar review of Kris' craptastic talk show this summer!
AH wrote on their site, "first, her talk show was not great and she is not a talk show host, no shame in that. The landscape is littered with failed talk shows… Bethenny is finding that out right now…"
Last weekend Kylie and a group of friends, including Jaden Smith, sauntered into a BH hotel around 8:30 pm. At first Kylie was jovial and polite to staff, having a good time and easy to deal with. But all that changed when she was told no!
"She was a complete nightmare," a source reveals of Kylie. "She started out really nice. But when she didn't get what she wanted, it was like someone flipped a switch."
The couple who filmed their over-the-top proposal will likely be airing their big day on TV as well, but there's a snafu in getting hitched! Kanye wants to get married ASAP but Kimmie Kakes wants to wait. Probably until she loses the rest of her baby weight.
Us Weekly has the first footage of Kim's third engagement (her second staged for a reality show and also her second Lorraine Schwartz ring!), and it features Kanye dropping down on one knee, Kim accepting, and a flood of K-fam members and hangers-on (Jonathan Cheban!) rushing the field.
I know you all are going to be soooo surprised by what you're about to read, but Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kanye West was filmed for reality TV! I knew pimpmoma Kris Jenner wasn't going to let the ultimate publicity stunt, ratings ploy go to waste – especially with interest waning in America's First Family of Reality Television Atrocities!
In the wake of several unfortunate Kardashian events, including allegations that Kanye would never propose to Kim and that their relationship was fake (I believe it – at least from his perspective!) Kanye planned a big honking proposal – with Keeping Up With The Kardashian kameras in tow!
A member of the orchestra dishes that she was paid four-times her normal rate and required to sign a non-disclosure agreement before performing at the Kimye Proposal Show. The musicians knew 2 days in advance what Kanye was secretly planning and snagged $1k each for the gig.
