Shain Gandee is most definitely the breakout star of BUCKWILDMTV describes Shain as "a trash collector … and quite possibly inebriated at any given moment, refers to himself as Gandee Candy, and every time he speaks, you need subtitles to understand him. Needless to say, he's amazing." 

Yes, Shain is amazing in a tire rollin', muddin' kind of way, but apparently he's no longer a trash collector. Rumor has it that Shain lost his sanitation job well before BUCKWILD began filming last spring. According to the Charleston Daily Mail, Shain was let go in November 2011 for "violating the personnel policy."

Color me confused because Shain is seen throwing trash bags into a South Charleston trash truck on the BUCKWILD series premiere. Why the lie?

Just kidding. This news is hardly a shocker. Still, despite the scripted feel to the show and the grumbling of some West Virginians, it sounds like MTV's BUCKWILD is destined to be a success.

Much to Melissa Whitman's dismay. The West Virginia resident, who lives across the street from where BUCKWILD was partially taped, had a lot to say to the Charleston Gazette about the production crew, foul-mouthed cast, and staged aspects of the show. 

According to Melissa, the BUCKWILD crew was obnoxious, inconsiderate, and constantly jammed her street with their black SUVs. Also, they taped (with their bright flood lights) during all hours of the day and night and several of the scenes were staged and/or reshot. Melissa added, "All of this was coaxed, coerced, scripted, or whatever."

An example of how the scenes were reshot and tweaked: "The big moving-in scene was shot two weeks after the girls were already living there."

MTV's BUCKWILD premiered Thursday night. Did you watch? 

While it's safe to say Senator Joe Manchin probably didn't host a viewing party, a decent amount of people couldn't resist the mudding, dump truck swimming, tire rolling, mattress slinging, and redneck sexy times. BUCKWILD pulled in 2.49 million viewers and a 1.4 rating over its back-to-back premieres.

BUCKWILD's Executive Producer Barry Poznick tweeted

Comparing premieres, BUCKWILD outperformed Jersey Shore, which debuted to 1.375 million in 2009, by over one million viewers. Whether or not BUCKWILD becomes the ratings juggernaut that was Jersey Shore remains to be seen.

MTV's BUCKWILD premieres tonight. The controversial new series follows a group of nine young, carefree, and adventurous friends from West Virginia who "love to dodge grown-up responsibilities" and "find unique ways to create their own fun." Pretty much, if you combine Jersey Shore, Jackass, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo… you get BUCKWILD

That said, according to executive producer John Stevens, BUCKWILD isn't all about the mud racing, body licking, squirrel hunting, reckless driving, and garbage throwing you've seen in the previews. (though that does sound lovely)

John says, "Look at any TV or movie trailer out there, and it will grab your attention with the most outrageous stuff. That's just a formula that broadcasters and movie companies have used forever. I don't think that's indicative of what the show is. BUCKWILD has a lot of wild moments to it, but I think it's got tons of heart, and I think you're going to see some really fun kinds of relationships."

MTV mirrors John's sentiment, stating, "The BUCKWILD cast's bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!"

If you've been watching anything on MTV, chances are you've seen previews for it's new reality show Buckwild.  It's like Jersey Shore, but with rednecks…and a lot of dangerous looking antics.  I think it would make Honey Boo Boo proud.

Remember when Italian Americans and the citizens of New Jersey had such an issue with our favorite GTLers?  Well, West Virginians and Southerners are feeling the same way about Buckwild.  I have to say though that all of this controversy is making me want to watch the insanity…even though, as a Southerner, I should be totally offended.

We all said our goodbyes to the original Teen Mom cast a few weeks ago.

Together, we celebrated the girls, Amber Portwood's eyelashes, the babies, Farrah Abraham's never-ending supply of puppies, the good times, Catelynn Lowell's fashion evolution, the bad times, and Bentley pissing on Maci Bookout

Personally, I thought the series finale and Dr. Drew's reunion special (part one and part two) were send off enough. However, despite the inevitable spin offs to come, somebody (starts with a 'm' and rhymes with 'teevee') isn't ready to cut the cord. 

MTV has announced three new Teen Mom specials. Perhaps the most unexpected one, though, is a half-hour interview with Amber titled Amber Behind Bars: An MTV Special set to air on October 9!

MTV's press release:

In this exclusive half-hour interview, Dr. Drew sits down with Amber Portwood inside the Rockville Correctional Facility for an intimate discussion about what life has been like behind bars, the status of her relationship with her daughter Leah, ex-boyfriend Gary, and her family, and her hopes for the future. As Amber reflects on her situation, she gives viewers an open, honest look inside the intense ups and downs she’s faced during this journey.

This exclusive interview marks the first time Amber has personally shared her story since she entered the Rockville Correctional Facility in June 2012.

This is the end of MTV's Teen Mom. The original group, anyway. We still have Jenelle Evans and her buddies on Teen Mom 2 to endure enjoy, as well as a new group to learn to love to hate on Teen Mom 3.  

I'll admit – the Teen Mom series finale left me craving more Teen Mom; however, after watching these reunion "specials," I can honestly say I'm ready to move on. On Part One of the reunion special, which was taped the first weekend of MarchDr. Drew Pinsky talked to Catelynn LowellTyler Baltierra, and Farrah Abraham

Part two brings us the rest of the original cast. Well, almost. Amber Portwood is still at summer camp. <wink, wink>

Maci and Ryan… Sitting in a Tree… 

Before Dr. Drew obsesses about Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards living happily ever after, he asks Maci about college. She says, "I'm doing good now. After my first two years, I just realized how fast it was going by. I stopped making excuses. Aside from Bentley, that should be the most important thing." Maci adds she is done wasting her time and money. Also, she travels at least once a week to speak to teens about teen pregnancy.

Searching for stability, searching for sobriety… a whole lot of searching… and that, my friends, is how Dr. Drew Pinsky sums up the final season of Teen MomThen he welcomes Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, and Catelynn Lowell to the reunion special. Amber Portwood is at summer camp and unable to attend the taping. 

When Dr. Drew glosses over Amber's absence, I know that this was taped a while back. I mean, "legal and personal issues" and "voluntary five-year prison term" aren't even in the same ballpark. If the "reunion show" isn't going to be taped in real time, I think it's kind of pointless. 

Before we get into the meat and potatoes of the reunion, ha, who am I kidding? It's Dr. Drew. Let me start again.

Teen Mom Series Finale Recap

Before we get into the limp lettuce and soggy potatoes of the reunion, Dr. Drew reminds us what happened this season on Teen Mom, as if it isn't already permanently burned into our brains. (I'll show you my scar tissue, if you show me yours.) Alas, the highlights…

Amber and Gary Shirley fight. Amber enters rehab after she threatens suicide. Rehab takes away Amber's fake eyelashes and spray tan but not her drugs. Amber goes home. Amber and Gary fight. Gary gets sole custody of Leah.
