Yesterday, to kick off the first official day of summer, Lifetime announced its reality TV summer premieres.
In addition to a brand new Little Women: LA spinoff, Little Women: Couples Retreat, we have the return of both Dance Moms and Project Runway to look forward to. As for new reality TV shows, get ready for So Sharp, featuring the University of Louisville Dance Team, and Growing Up Supermodels. Look below for more about each premiere.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but when I think of high fashion, I am thinking more along the lines of Project Runway and designers of that nature, not Keeping Up With The Kardashians or Kanye West. I mean, I am sure somewhere out there, there is someone who agrees with West that sweatshirts are the best thing ever, but considering the fact that West proclaims those who don’t like his shoes are racist, is just plain ridiculous. News flash Kanye – not everyone likes your shoes (you couldn’t pay me to buy them).
Luckily, if you’re like me, we are not alone. Fashion guru and Project Runway star, Tim Gunn feels the same way and doesn’t even understand why the Kardashians or Kanye West bother to dabble in the fashion world. In fact, in a new interview, Gunn blasted West and the Kardashians, and guess what? He really doesn’t give a rats behind what they think about it, ha! Get all of the details after the jump.

The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations are in and reality TV made it in again – some of the shows/stars for the second year in a row! Four reality categories are included in this year’s nominations! Check out the nominees below and tells us – who else deserved a nod? Which shows, hosts, stars deserved a little Emmy love?
The network just announced filming for Project Runway Junior. Featuring competitors aged 14-17, Project Runway Junior will follow the same format as its predecessor in an effort to highlight the “next generation” of great fashion designers. The show begins filming in New York City this summer and will air on the network this fall. Heidi Klum was the inspiration behind the new junior spinoff due to the fashions of her own kids.
The reality stars are out in force this week – mostly congregating in NYC for Fashion Week. Hopefully some of them picked up a few pointers along the way! Not only do we have some fashion week pics, but also some celebs getting their fitness on (Lisa Rinna) and catching flights (NeNe).
While some of our favorite reality shows may deserve Emmy Awards for their acting and scripts, they DO get some recognition in other categories. The Primetime Emmys were announced this morning and several of our favorite shows made the cut!
