E!’s summer reality TV lineup thankfully doesn’t include a Kardashian spinoff -unless you count the widely anticipated docu-series about Bruce Jenner and his transition to living as a woman. But that’s not all E! is giving us this summer -there’s also more Botched to look forward to as well as a whole host of new shows so you can escape from the heat.
The network’s summer programing will kick off on Memorial Day Weekend with a second season of #RichKids of Beverly Hills and the mid-season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But after that it’s a summer of new programing.
So what can we expect? Total Divas is back for season 2 on July 7th at 9pm. Brody Jenner‘s new sex and relationship show “Sex With Brody” will debut on July 10th, followed by Bruce’s poignant documentary series about his new life living as a transgendered woman.
