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.
Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, a member of the R&B group TLC, has landed a new reality show on… wait for it… TLC! Totally T-Boz will follow T-Boz, 42, from Atlanta to L.A., where she'll attempt to reestablish her music career.
“This series will open the door into T-Boz’s struggles and successes, and the people who are there to support her as she works to make her dreams come true all over again,” TLC's GM Amy Winter says.
This will be T-Boz's third reality show. In 2005, T-Boz and fellow band mate Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas starred in R U The Girl on UPN. Also, T-Boz appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2009.
The creators of Pawn Stars and American Restoration have been shooting a series that follows several Las Vegas housewives, but don’t expect a Bravo-esque housewives show.
The show Vegas Moms has been filming for quite a while in Las Vegas, and it stars Amanda Kouretas, April Swartz (Mrs. Nevada 2009), Francine Sanchez (Mrs. Las Vegas 2011), Shannon Love, Carey Kennedy, and Mickey Norton. Las Vegas Weekly reports, “It is ultra sexy and fun. But they are still moms and homemakers. Yes, there’s crazy stuff and there’s drama, and they live amazing lives. The six of them have a long history together as friends, and their kids all play and know each other.”
Naomi Campbell is going to give Tyra Banks a run for her money. The supermodel is starring in her own reality modeling competition on Oxygen! Naomi will be one of three coaches on the new show “The Face”.
Naomi will be one of the three coaches that lead contestants through as they battle on and off the runway to be a national spokesperson. Scouting and picking aspiring models from all over the world, Campbell and the other two coaches, as yet unnamed, will mentor a team through the rigors of the modeling industries. The winner of The Face will become the face of a major brand, also as yet unnamed.
Naomi is excited about the project and I have to admit, so am I. I’ve always wondered what she was really like (aside from all those cell phone beatdowns and blood diamond scandals) – and now we’ll get an inside look.
