As y'all know, NBC pulled the Style Network off the air and replaced it with Esquire last year. This came as a shock to the fashion obsessed and to reality TV fans who couldn't get enough of shows likeBig Rich Texas,Tia & Tamera, and Jerseylicious.
Late last week, we learned that Rida Khan resigned as the CEO of Fashion TV and purchased Style TV, with plans to re-launch the network in October.
We all have very strong opinions about the Real Housewives – that is the understatement of the year, says Reality Tea's comment moderator, I'm sure – and we all have favorites and not so favorites! Personally, I love when nobody takes the shows too seriously, and we all have fun discussing the housewives latest fashion disasters, relationship drama, and friendship explosions.
Andy Cohen, the man responsible for bringing us the best of the best and the worst of the worst, knows the housewives better than anyone. So, when he hosted the CLIO Image Awards for excellence in fashion and beauty last week, Allure Magazine asked Andy to name the "BEST HOUSEWIFE" in several categories. Who's the best dressed? Who's Andy's ideal dinner partner? Who has the best hair and the best booty? A few of the names shocked me!
She's not going away, y'all! Courtney Stodden became famous (is that what you'd call it?) when she wed fifty-something "actor" Doug Hutchison at the rip old age of sixteen, and they milked their notoriety on Couples Therapy. After her stint on U.K.'s Big Brother, Courtney called it a day as far as her marriage to Doug was concerned, promising that the two would remain the best of friends. She also promised to stay in the spotlight…well, maybe not publicly, but that is the only answer to why she's still around.
Now, Courtney is introducing a series of webisodes, tackling such hard hitting topics like selfies and helium. You read that correctly. Courtney Naturally is the name of her new endeavor, and Courtney shares with Fox 411, “I'm just being me…Each ep [sic] is fun and outrageous. The best part is there is no filter.”
Her mother–and manager (shocking!)–concurs, explaining that topics will evolve from superficial selfies. Courtney's mother says, “Her and I are on it together and we’re going over baby pictures and laughing about the ways I dressed her. There’s a lot more to come.” Sounds riveting! Check out the first two episodes after the jump! Just a warning…I'm much dumber having watched!
Not to channel my inner Jerry Orbach (the Dirty Dancing one, not the Law and Order one…clearly I have both!), but when I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong. I honestly never thought that former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak would last three weeks withKroy Biermann. To me, their relationship screamed story line.
However, a few years, spin-off, and umpteen babies later, I do think the couple is genuinely happy and in love. I hate that I was such a cynic. Kim has been Kroy's biggest supporter on and off the field, and now she's gearing up for his latest NFL season.
Confession time. Despite my line of work, I avoid everything Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as much as humanly possible. But – every once in a while – something Kardashian/West comes across my computer screen that catches my attention and sends me into a raging fit of laughter.
According to Contact Music, Kanye plans to bless us with three hours worth of his rants on the environment, tales of his life with Kim and North, and more. Oh my. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. I can't think of anything worse to listen to for three hours. Err, well, except maybe Taylor Swift singing live.
On one hand it seems like a pretty hefty sum for Jason to receive after such a short union, but on the other, I know there are people who would argue that he earned every penny. Of course, after over a year of battling out in court, there are some people who would pay just about anything to have the entire debacle over for good…but not Bethenny. It's about principle with this one (sure it is).
When Brielle Biermann tweeted about her dinner plans with a friend on Saturday, writing, "i gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good good night gotta feelin;)" she probably wasn't counting on a trip to the emergency room after being hit in the face with a sign. Luckily, Kim Zolciak Biermann's seventeen-year-old daughter didn't wasn't seriously injured, and she continues to joke about it on social media.
While we're not sure of the details of the sign debacle (a follower commented "besides getting hit by a sign…" in response to Brielle's Black-Eyed Peas' lyrics), her mother was understandably tweeting up a worried storm about the event.
Apparently VH1 wants to revitalize NBC’s “Must See TV” Thursday. They are really pushing their “hot new summer line-up” for Thursdays, which includes Dating Naked, #CandidlyNicole, andLeAnn & Eddie and kicks off July 17.
Dating Naked? Awesome. Nicole Richie? No complaints here.LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian? Um, err, at least it’s not Brandi! Obviously this line-up will go down in history books as the new The Cosby Show, Cheers, and L.A. Law or Friends, Will & Grace, and ER can’t miss Thursday night!
Mark your calendars, my friends, because VH1 is where it’s at this summer. To be clear: No – I did not type any of that with a straight face. But I am looking forward to #CandidlyNicole despite the hashtag. Also, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle returns and Atlanta Exes premieres later this summer.
