Yes.. this is happening. No.. it will not star Phaedra Parks and Teresa Giudice and air on Bravo. Prison Wives Club premieres October 28 on Lifetime.
“Prison Wives Club follows four women living with their decisions to fall in love with and remain married to convicted felons. While facing judgment from their friends and families, each episode explores how these women struggle to find normalcy despite their unconventional choices when it comes to the men in their lives,” shared the network. “Restricted to limited contact with their spouses who are serving sentences ranging from ten years to life, the ladies band together for support; but this group comes with its own sentence as they don’t always agree on how to behave as a wife on the outside.”
"Our latest crop of development is all about connecting Bravo viewers with who they definitely must know and what they absolutely cannot live without," sharedBravo's SVP of Development Lara Spotts. "From a glimpse inside a luxury ski resort to a curation of what is new and what is next, Bravo has its finger on the pulse of the latest trends for our viewers to keep up at the water cooler."
Patti Stanger is one of three executive producers behind Family Love, which follows Lisa Galos and her unconventional family of matchmakers, including her beautiful single daughter, gay son, ex-husband, and even her ex-husband’s former mistress. Family Love follows Lisa and her offbeat family as they set up singles (and probably not-so-single since Bravo's involved) in Chicago.
Is your relationship on the edge? Do you need Couples Therapy but you are not a reality TV star who is desperate for another 15 minutes of fame? If you answered yes to either question, today is your lucky day. Fox is casting a new reality TV show titled Couples Retreat.
It's Wife Swap meets Temptation Island. Couples who sign up for Couples Retreat "agree to go on a fantasy weekend with the opposite-gender partner of a similarly matched couple" in an attempt to fix their troubled marriage or to reboot their stale marriage. Oh, yes, this is trashy reality TV at its finest.
Since the demise of the Style Network, I've been anxious to find out what will happen to a few of my favorite reality shows. While some of Style's lineup will simply disappear, a few shows will likely end up on E!, Oxygen, or Bravo.
The thought of never seeing my favorite Big Rich Texas stars again gives me a serious case of the sads. Le sigh. So, when Melissa Poe tweeted that she's involved with a new reality series, I may have let out a happy little squee.
Because there aren't quite enough over-entitled rich 20 somethings on TV, E! is reportedly developing a new reality series titled Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.
The reality series will follow a group of young adults who live a life of excess in Beverly Hills. Deadline reports, the series will feature "the offspring of the most elite families and billionaire moguls party, play, and support each other against a backdrop of wealth," and has been inspired by a Tumblr blog titled Rich Kids of Instagram.
If you can't get enough of the Style Network, with shows like Kimora: House of Fab, Jerseylicious, Glam Fairy, and Big Rich Texas, you'll want to check out these new shows!
Two shows, XOX Betsey Johnson and Resale Royalty, premiere Sunday, May 12 on Style. The remaining eleven titles are still under development.
XOX Betsey Johnson – For years, Betsey Johnson has led the fashion community with her youthful and eclectic styles, and she now gives viewers unprecedented access to her life with daughter Lulu.
Betsey and Lulu have always worked together to expand Betsey’s fashion empire, but the pressures of their business relationship have created a co-dependent mother-daughter relationship. Betsey and Lulu find their deeply entangled relationship will be tested as they evolve both professionally and personally.
The new shows include The Lylas, Pregnant & Dating, and The Ruckers: Southern Royals.
The Lylas (pictured above) follows an up-and-coming pop group (of the same name) as they move from Hawaii to LA in search of their big break. The ladies – Tiara, Tahiti, Presley, and Jaime – are the sisters of singer-songwriter Bruno Mars.
Does the world really need one more teens-a-mess reality show?
According to Lifetime, yes. The network picked up eight hour-long episodes of a new series titled Teen Trouble. The show's host, Josh Shipp, is a teen behavior specialist, motivational speaker, and former advice correspondent for MTV's Total Request Live. He's also the author of The Teen's Guide to World Domination: Advice on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Awesomeness.
In Teen Trouble, Josh will "embed himself" into the "hidden lives" of teens who are abusing drugs and alcohol, stealing from family, and otherwise breaking the law. He will then confront the teens and parents with a few harsh truths.
