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?
Oh no. Say it isn't so! Teen Mom 2'sJenelle Evans spends so little time with her first son Jace, that I can only imagine what would happen should the train wreck reality star choose to procreate again. Bad decisions courtesy of MTV, don't you know!
We watched Jenelle drift in and out of horribly dysfunctional relationships and engagements while chasing Ke$ha, weed, and whoever could sell her a quick high. Several rehab stints, God awful tattoos and poor choices later, she's found the #loveofherlife. Sure she has! Purely speculation here, thanks to Jenelle's life playing out on social media, but do we think she could possibly be expecting again?
MTV's newest reality show Big Tips Texas follows the lives of four veteran and six newbie waitresses and bartenders at a bar named Redneck Heaven, where the goal is to make the customers feel "happy and horny".
A sneak peek aired earlier this week. I watched, um, cause it's my job. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!) Big Tips Texas is obviously a reality TV knock-off of Coyote Ugly and totally trashy TV at its finest. I'm hooked already, um, cause I have no standards. (That's the truth!)
According to MTV, we can expect to see the Big Tips Texas ladies "evolve, shift, and grow as they work and party their way through the drama and adventure of figuring out who they are and where they're going." Giddy up!
It's no secret I love the kids from Jersey Shore (some much more than others, of course). I can GTL with the best of them, except I am not a member of a gym, I tend to blind people at the beach with my pastiness, and the only one who does my laundry is me. That said, y'all have to admit that the orange crew has grown up and calmed down more than anyone ever expected. Makes me proud…
I understood when communities didn't want the drunken, brawling, slipper-wearing, Britney flashing, roid raging guidos and guidettes falling all over their boardwalks, but times have changed. They've changed. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley still enjoy time in front of MTV's cameras for their spin-off Snooki & JWoww, but now they are planning weddings and burping babies instead of planning ragers and, well, just burping.
This newfound maturity doesn't seem to matter to the community of Pelican Island, New Jersey. They don't want the show filming anywhere near them. Need a refresher? Catch up here. However, now Snooki and JWoww aren't giving up without a fight!
In today's Teen Mom news, two of the original cast continue to on their respective paths, and it's almost as if they've traded places. Amber Portwood was the series' train wreck, and viewers watched her downward spiral that ended with an extended stay in the clink. Now, however, Amber has worked hard to turn her life around for the sake of her daughter and herself.
On the other hand, her co-star Farrah Abraham is also a train wreck. While she's not in jail, I'm sure she'd entertain the idea of starring in an adult movie focused on female inmates. Of course, Farrah never disappoints, and she recently chatted about how she can't run from fame (it will find her!) and the caliber of her three (yes, three) veryveryveryvery successful suitors. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried!
Let's start with the positive, shall we? Starcasm reports on a recent interview given by Amber where she talks about her progress while in prison and how hard she's working to get out of jail.
While there doesn't appear to be a Jenelle Evans in the bunch, Briana is attempting to tweet more often and more caustically than her predecessor in response to anonymous Internet haters. I honestly can't fathom the amount of criticism and hate these girls get from total strangers, and apparently Briana would rather fight back than stay quiet. It's craziness!
That said, we've also got the trailer for the upcoming season, and the drama certainly abounds! After the jump, check out what to expect from the new group of teen moms as well as some of my favorite retorts from Briana's twitter spew. I couldn't show them all because you don't have all day to read this one post!

I'm going to need all of you to sit down before you keep reading this post. I'm serious. I don't want anyone to grow faint or trip out of pure and unadulterated shock. Please. We here at RT care about your well-being.
Are you seated? Good. Here is some really crazy news…Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evan's new boyfriend may NOT have the most sincere of intentions when it comes to his courtship with the troubled reality star. I know, I know…I'll give you a few minutes to recover!
Earlier this week, the former Teen Mom star announced that she was off to Florida for a 10-day kid free vacation stint in rehab for alcohol abuse. Now, Farrah has revealed a few details about the "alcohol free" restaurant she is planning to open in Texas. Perfectly timed details, of course.
"The main theme and purpose of why I'm making this restaurant is really the community involvement," saidFarrah the Humanitarian. "It's called DDs."
