Can we go ahead and start jumping on Oprah's couch over this news? That's probably putting the cart ahead of the horse, but TLC has announced a new show which will premiere this summer that will follow famed actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini and her family.
I'm not going to hold my breath that this show will divulge all the secrets of the controversial religion, but a gal can hope, right?
She tells the magazine, "I had my official last chemo treatment, and while I'm hesitant to say I'm cancer-free – maybe that's common for people who have had cancer – I'm doing great. Everything is moving in the right direction. I am very excited."
Be careful on the roads, people! Stop texting and driving! Slow down! Use your headlights! For goodness sake, pay some friggin' attention when you're behind the wheel! I shall step off my soapbox now and inform you that on Monday, the Shannon Thompson clan of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, was involved in a terrible car wreck. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, but it sounds like a scary ordeal!
First reported by TMZ, sources claim that Sugar Bear was driving the family's new Suburban while June, Pumpkin (Lauryn), Chubbs (Jessica), and Honey Boo Boo (Alana) were along for the ride as passengers. Apparently, Sugar Bear was trying to make a left hand turn on a green light when a truck (allegedly speeding and sans headlights) plowed into the family's vehicle.
Well, this shouldn't shock you. The network that has brought us such gems as Toddlers and Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Breaking Amish (and don't think I don't DVR every last one of them!!) has totally outdone itself. The channel once known as The Learning Channel wants to teach you about nudists. That's right, y'all! Get ready for Buying Naked, TLC's sure to be latest hit.
The show follows a realtor in Pasco County, Florida which she hails as the nudist capital of the world with over a dozen communities where folks can let it all hang out…literally. She's the premiere saleswoman for nekkid homes, describing her clients as not wearing any pants, yet still having deep pockets. I can't even. I mean. Yes. This is an actual thing. Thank you TLC. I have now officially seen everything…and I can't unsee the preview!
Be sure to check out a sneak peek of Buying Naked after the jump, but be forewarned…there are a lot of hairy bums (no blurring here!) and strategically placed garden hoses (true story) and margarita glasses. I wish I were making this up!

With no frighteningly competitive tantrum-throwing moms and creepy pageant coach dads living their dreams through overly caffeinated living dolls, wherever is the THE LEARNING CHANNEL (it cracks me up every time) going to get its material? Oh, that's right…the Amish (and I love it. No shame).
Where am I going with this, you ask? After six seasons, Toddlers & Tiaras is no more. Let that sink for a second.
Forklift foot, neck rust, and 'sketti aside (I do sometimes have to avert my eyes), this family loves one another. They seem to have accomplished what no other reality stars have been able to do—staying grounded!
And now, we get to see even more of crew because TLC has ordered more episodes.
If you're like me, you're wondering what great deed you must have done this weekend to be treated to two full hours of Kody Brown's hair. Oh, and Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn were there too…
The Sister Wives reunion begins with Tamara Hall addressing Kodilocks (thanks reader Hegeira for that hilarious moniker!) and the Brown wives. The family relives the drama of getting financing for the cul-de-sac compound and Meri's tears. Christine and Janelle are sporting some pretty heavy make-up, and Meri explains that there is more potential for jealousy now that the women are in such close proximity. When Tamara tries to dig deeper, Meri begins back-tracking and Christine admits sometimes she is visited by the green monster. Tamara needs to take over the Housewives reunions!
To lighten the mood, the group jokes about a time when Kody was told by Robyn that he needed to put on his big boy panties and get used to his wives empowering themselves with My Sister Wives Closet. He blushes over the jokes as Robyn apologizes. Tamara then shares Danny the builder's insights on Kody and all of his ladies. Everyone agrees that Danny is spot-on with his assessments.
