Hey, you know who we haven’t heard from in awhile? Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo , and her
train wreck disaster of a family. Maybe that is because they haven’t really done very much lately. Or in life in general.
Well, Alana decided to throw her family back into the limelight by doing an act on live camera that was sure to raise the ire of any who watched it. And then promptly have us talking about her. Like I am about to.
Gretchen Rossi has given birth to her first child. Following a years-long struggle with infertility, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star welcomed daughter Skylar Gray on Wednesday, July 10.
The baby’s father is Gretchen‘s fiancé and longtime love and OG Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Slade Smiley.
Ever since they started dating, everything Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have done has become front page news. Then, they had an extravagant multi-day wedding in India, incorporating both of their heritages into the festivities.
With every photo, their fans became even more fascinated with their lives and relationship. Their courtship moved very quickly, with the two of them getting engaged just a few months after news of their relationship broke. Then, they got married in the same calendar year. Now, the public wants to know more about their lives with each other. The two of them could provide a pretty entertaining reality show.
Ah, dating, one of life’s
worst nightmares greatest thrills. These days we are inundated with television shows that cater to those hoping to find love. Whether it’s competing for a rose or marrying someone 5 minutes after meeting, lots of folks out there are searching for a paycheck “the one”.
What we don’t see is a dating show dedicated to the LGBTIQA community. Let’s face it, love is love and the diversity aspect of these shows can be dismal. BACK IN MY DAY (and get off my lawn), MTV played actual music videos. Teens of the 80’s were whisked away to exotic locales and introduced to hair metal. With the ratings brought in by reality television, MTV’s format has changed over the years. Now they are flipping the script once again with a brand new show.
The drama got back on track this week between Camille Grammer and the rest of the ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We had a brief respite last week when Camille got married in Hawaii. The mean girls gang of Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave put their best-manicured foot forward and mostly pretended like they were happy to be there. Which is crazy to me, who wouldn’t want a free trip to Hawaii?
There were a few grumbles, mainly from Kyle who was still whining about the imaginary bridesmaid duties she had to endure. And there was the made up drama about how Kyle found out Lisa Vanderpump took a lie detector test. RHOBH needs to hire new writers. Shockingly though, Camille’s nemesis, Teddi, remained fairly quiet during the trip. She was very polite and didn’t talk smack about Camille during the wedding. She just waited until right after.
Viewers have been Keeping Up With the Kardashians, literally, for 16 seasons-– seasons. That’s because the first family of reality television keeps delivering the dramatic goods. This includes a whole new generation of adorable Kardashians. It’s hard to believe this empire was spawned by a sex tape that featured the first among equals Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Ray J.
A tape that Kim’s genius momager Kris Jenner used to turn water into wine when she shopped around their reality show. It seems another lifetime ago. Now the youngest sibling, Kylie Jenner is a mom and a billionaire. Almost as incredibly, Kim, who never graduated from college, is studying to become a lawyer!
Most of us love a good old fashioned Hollywood scandal. Especially if it involves wealth, power, privilege and arrogance. All of those bullet point requirements and more were met by the college admissions fraud story that broke last month.
The two best known players in the scandal have been actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin. Much to their consternation, I am sure, they have been the cover girls for a legal debacle that seems resistant to dropping out of the headlines. Allegations of resorting to bribery to get your children into college is proof that yes, there actually is such a thing as bad publicity. And last year, Lori revealed that she and her family could have been the subject of even more public attention-with their own reality show.
Bravo has created a world of reality tv viewing. Real Housewives of New York, Below Deck, Southern Charm, and Shahs of Sunset to name a few. Almost every day of the week we tune in to see what shenanigans our favorite, or most loathed, “character” gets themselves into.
Are you wanting a change of scenery? Do you hate blind dates but LOVE watching others squirm having one? Then your prayers have been answered because Bravo has decided to bring back one of the classics.
