Holly Robinson Peete, of old school 21 Jump Street fame (yeah!) and husband & former quarterback Rodney Peete are getting their own docuseries (aka reality show) on OWN. The working titled production, For Peete’s Sake, will “follow the lives of husband and wife duo Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete as they juggle their careers with their family life,” according to blackcelebkids.com.
Why is OWN taking an interest in the Peete family, which includes the couples’ four children – twins RJ and Ryan Elizabeth (17), middle son Robinson (13), and the youngest, Roman (10) – and Holly’s widowed mother, Dolores? Well, according to OWN president Sheri Salata, “As longtime members of ‘The Oprah Show’ family, we’ve watched Holly and Rodney navigate successful careers in show business, a devoted marriage and a growing, love-filled family.” Salata adds, “This new series gives an entertaining and honest look at a modern family that just happens to live in the celebrity spotlight.” Salata also tweeted yesterday, “Team Peete is ready to roll!” after Holly had posted a photo on her Twitter account of her hubby and her hanging with the Lady Who Rules Us All, Oprah Winfrey.

We've seen it time and time again. A child star grows up in the spotlight, has fame hungry parents, no one ever tells them no, they party, their squeaky clean image starts to get tarnished, the pressure mounts, drugs happen, lesbian relationships ensue, parents of tweens who love them are outraged, tabloid stories become far more prevalent than movie roles, rehab happens, then a comeback, then rehab again, Lather, rinse, repeat.
Sound familiar? No, I'm not predicting Miley Cyrus' future (although I could be), but I'm referring to everyone's favorite train wreck–Lindsay Lohan. Girlfriend has had a quite a time, hasn't she? What's next for her? Well, thanks to Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, she's getting her own reality show. That should be helpful in her "recovery."
In today's shocking news, former spouses Jon and Kate Gosselin still aren't getting along. The one time laid back member of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 duo is decidedly more low key these days. Thankfully, Jon is no longer dating nannies, abusing Ed Hardy (that we know of), or hanging with Michael Lohan. As for Kate, she's basically the same, but tanner with a much more expensive lifestyle and sense of entitlement. It's a wonder these two didn't work…
While Jon and Kate struggle to get along, their eight children are the ones who suffer. Jon is quick to mention this to Oprah Winfrey. See how casually I mentioned that? Yes, Jon is going to be interviewed by the Big O for her series Where Are They Now?
We all know that things haven't exactly been peachy keen for Lamar Odom. Once seemingly happily married to Khloe Kardashian, the NBA player is in a major downward spiral due to alleged substance abuse and infidelity.
While theKeeping up with the Kardashian's star has remained out of the spotlight, Lamar remains in the tabloids thanks to DUIs and faux Twitter rants expressing his gratitude towards Kris Jenner (we all knew that had to fake, right?). Is there anyone who could possibly draw him out of his cave to tell his version of the events?
As if you didn't already have enough reality television to keep up with on a regular basis, Oprah Winfrey's network (appropriately called OWN…brilliant!) is in the works to create a new show that I know I will totally get sucked into watching.
Being touted at as a docu-series (that's Oprah's fancy way of saying "reality show"), the premise of the program is to follow the daily life of former NFL star Deion Sanders. Count. Me. In.
I’m not sure if you’ve heard but the Kardashian family recently sat down to talk to Oprah about everything Kardashian. Oprah’s ratings are suffering so we must suffer through the news that’s hardly news but now it’s breaking news because it’s coming from Oprah. I hope you’ve all learned a valuable lesson here – watch the OWN Network or we get Kardashians: Rinse and Repeat. I refuse to speculate on who the next punishment could be.
Since the interview was so deep, it brings us all the way back to the early years of the Kardashian empire, namely Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. How does Kim Kardashian‘s new beau Kanye West feel about the recent buzz over Kim’s naked romp with Ray J? Dude, he isn’t trippin’ on it. An insider tells Hollywood Life, “Kim f*%#ed on tape and became an international icon and made [many] millions. So to me, she’s gangsta. These other girls got the game [messed] up, not Kim, and I think that’s why Kanye is so drawn to her and supports her and doesn’t give a [crap] about her past. He likes her for her and respects the fact she came up in the game.” That’s sweet. Haters are going to hate no matter what, but the source warns us, “Everyone’s hate on her and [lots of] people hate on Kanye too. You think they care, really? Jealousy and envy fuels people like them. It only makes them stronger.” Noted.
So, it’s been established that Kanye isn’t going to dwell on Kim’s past or anything that was discussed in the interview. What about her soon-to-be (maybe even in this decade) ex-husband Kris Humphries? Is there anything in the interview that could help his case? His lawyers sure think so!
