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.
In a battle of the hard-rocking against the famewhoring, my money will always be on Motley Crue. Iconic hairbander Nikki Sixx had enough of Kim Kardashian's vapid tweeting in light of the utter devastation in Oklahoma on Monday, and I have to applaud him. While many were expressing their sorrow at the horrific tornadoes that tore through the state, a clueless Kim was hawking her cosmetics brand.
Don't get me wrong, I know Kim meant no harm…she wasn't thinking. She never is. However, that's not really an excuse for her anymore. I'd be happy to give anyone a pass for being unknowingly insensitive, but she literally makes a career of it. Thankfully, Nikki said what the rest of the Twitterverse wanted to say.
This is the true story…of seven strangers…picked to live in a house/casino/fire station/fish market…and have their lives taped…as they concoct fabulous new culinary delights. Wait, what?
MTV is getting back to its roots…no, the network isn't going back to actually playing music, but it will be revamping the Real World genre with a culinary take–and it's casting now. Are you ready to apply?
Oh, Welcome to Myrtle Manor–you keep making South Carolina proud! The Learning Channel show follows the inhabitants of a Southern trailer park, and the cast is determined to make a name for themselves…maybe not through ratings, but through arrests.
In the last week, three of the cast mates were popped by the po-po with two being arrested over the weekend. Now two of the Myrtle Manor residents are facing DUI charges while another faces allegations of sexual acts with a minor. Oh goodness!
Another season, another slew of reality series! As we head into the summer months, we need even more mindless television to distract us from the fact that the weather is beautiful and we're all stuck inside working for a living. I have to say, Ryan Seacrest's channel is stepping up to the plate–and stepping away from the Kardashians–to bring us a whole gamut of new entertainment.
According to an E! press release, we have lots to look forward to in the vein of new reality shows from the network. From the boys of The Wanted to the WWE to the gray flannel clad Bachelor (you know who I'm talking about!), there is sure to be something for everyone!
Bravo called, and it wants another hit series which could spark another Housewives-esque franchise! The network is known for its over the top reality series showing the drama and opulence of lives far outside the average viewer's reach (aka, me). It's fun to peek into someone else's money fueled lifestyle for an hour in the evenings.
True to form, the network is introducing a new series that will allow us to do just that with the privileged girls of Long Island. Get ready, RT readers, Princesses: Long Island is sure to be Andy Cohen's next train wreck of a series, and I, for one, can't wait!
If you turn on the Style Network at any given time of the day, chances are you're going to see Kimora Lee Simmons sharing her fashion tips during the commercial breaks. The model, actress, fashion designer, and author (she wrote Fabulosity: What It Is And How To Get It) is known just as much for her high profile relationships as she is for her multiple business ventures. Married and divorced from fashion and music mogul Russell Simmons (the pair has two tween daughters), Kimora recently separated from her latest beau Dijimon Hounsou with whom she has a three-year-old-son.
Kimora showcased her life on the reality series Kimora: Life In The Fab Lane which aired on Style and featured her family and business as she ran Phat Fashions. Now that she and Dijimon have split–they never legally married in the United States but did participate in a traditional ceremony–Kimora is dishing on the importance of putting children first and focusing on the positive.
