This news is bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S!). Okay, it's actually pretty spot on as reality news goes. The Voice is getting some new blood next season so that Christina Aguilera can rest up during her pregnancy. The eighth season of the hit singing competition is set to begin filming in June.
Christina has always traded off seasons with Usher and Shakira, but now she'll be making room for everyone's favorite hollaback girl. I have "no doubt" this newbie will be a great addition to the competition (whoa, that was bad.).
Much like the other reality competitions before it, TheX Factor needs a revamp. Let's face it, unless it's The Voice, no one is really watching on the daily…or are you? I've never been one for the these shows (although I did get addicted to American Idol back in the day), but I do love to watch a moody Simon Cowell. Plus, who doesn't love to see what color hair Demi Lovato is sporting on any given night?
USA Today is reporting that Simon has grand plans for the upcoming season of the X Factor. He's talking shake-ups, y'all! Simon himself even wants a new role in the production.
What makes for better reality television than the scorned exes of television? You know the answer is "not much" if you keep up with the ladies of Hollywood Exes! Now, it's being reported that two more celebrities' former wives are hoping to score their own show.
If that's the case, CeeLo Green and Usher should be shaking in their ridiculously expensive shoes, because Christina Shanta Johnson and Tameka Foster (the men's respective exes) want to be reality stars! As you know, of course, both divorces were nasty, nasty, nasty!
Forgive me, but I didn't realize that American Idol was still going to be churning out seasons. I used to be addicted to the original talent showcase…and not just for the crazy first round auditions. On that note, do we know what William Hung is doing right now?
Once the show started trading out judges like Housewives trade out Hermes bags and cocktails, it seemed to be on a constant decline. My dawg Randy Jackson, the only original judge remaining, decided to cut his losses after the most recent season, and his counterparts have been quitting left and right. Keith Urban appears to be the only one who has any interest remaining on the sinking ship.
However–and I never saw this coming–there are loud rumblings that the show is in talks to bring back a former judge who I'd actually tune in to see. I never gave much thought to Jenny from the Block, but I'll readily admit that I really enjoyedJennifer Lopez on Idol. If she returns to judging, maybe I'll return to watching!
Hello out there? Are you watching reality shows or are you outside enjoying the beginning of summer? I like to think I've found the perfect balance of both, but it seems we all need to step up our game a bit and show some love to old faithfuls.
Unfortunately, Monday night's shows didn't fare well in the ratings race. Desiree Hartsock's quest for love began on the Bachelorette, but a lot less people tuned in to watch her pass out roses than in seasons past. Likewise, viewers for The Voice are on a steady decline.
