Y'all, I'm having an off week. It's the only way to explain my utter shock when watching a preview clip for Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow's new plastic surgery show. I've read about it. Hell, I've written about it! It's titled BOTCHED for crying out loud! I can't exactly say I didn't know the premise of the pair's new endeavor!
Alas, my tolerance for creepy isn't what it used to be in my younger days, and I could barely stomach the bad plastic surgery. How does this even happen? I am sure the stories will be sad and the Bravolebrities past and present will nip, tuck, and repair these folks, resulting in a heartwarming and tearful reveal, but yikes! I guess I didn't realize how many ladies (and gents!) out there actually strive to look like a feline! Although now that you mention it, Adrienne Maloof WAS married to Paul…
That said, I will certainly be watching Botched when it premieres on E! later this month. I may be watching with one hand over my eyes, but I'll be watching nonetheless!
There are not a lot of celebrities that annoy me to the extent that LeAnn Rimes annoys me. I used to be obsessed with her back when she was a young country singer dating Andrew Keegan (who didn't adore him?). Now, her penchant for over-sharing and vine videos just rubs me the wrong way. It's not even the infidelity or the Twitter battles she's now famous for, it's just her demeanor. She's very good at being condescending.
Anyhoo, I'll get off my soapbox long enough to write about her upcoming reality show with husband Eddie Cibrian that I won't be watching. Just kidding! I will totally be all over that show. As much as she grates on my nerves, LeAnn is my own personal train wreck. I just can't look away.
The phrase "save the drama for your mama" is about to take on an entirely new meeting, and it looks like Atlanta is about to gain yet another hip-hop centric reality show. Congratulations, Peach State! Who among us hasn't gasped at Kandi Burruss' mother's sharp tongue or laughed at how angry Rasheeda's mom makes Kirk Frost when she kisses his baby on the mouth or, say, runs over his motorcycle after he cheated on her daughter in a threesome?
While it's been in the rumor mill for some time, it appears that several mothers of hip hop royalty will be getting their own show. In the words of Jim Jones' amazingly crazy mother Nancy, it's sure to be "physiochotic." Too bad there aren't any rumors that she'll be joining the cast!
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.
