We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the July 6 edition of Monday Morning Tea.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
After an unusually long hiatus, Dancing With The Stars is FINALLY waltzing its way back into our lives. We LOVE this show. It gives celebrities in need of spotlight some much needed extra attention. It’s usually stars we haven’t heard from in a while with nothing to lose by doing the show. There’s nothing that gives us more life than a D List celebrity attempting to dance.
This show is been a juggernaut for ABC, and that isn’t now changing anytime soon. The series has been a fan favorite since 2005 when General Hospital star Kelly Monaco samba’d to victory. Kelly powering through a wardrobe malfunction for a perfect score is still so iconic. She may have been the first, but there have been 26 winners since. Will will be the 28th? Luckily the cast is FINALLY revealed, and WHAT A LINEUP.
Are you watching The Hills: New Beginnings? I can’t seem to help myself. Seeing
completely changed familiar faces is oddly comforting in a way. Back in the old days, Brody Jenner and Spencer Pratt were buds. They did the LA club scene and while Spencer began his slow descent into madness, the CDC developed its own file on Brody. Spencer eventually settled down with Heidi Montag and Brody began dating his first ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter.
It is safe to say that Spencer does not enjoy the company of many people. That includes Mrs. Brody Jenner. Spencer feels Kaitlynn takes advantage of Brody and uses his famous name to her benefit. He also thinks Kaitlynn is the main reason Brody had a falling-out with his step-sister, Kim Kardashian. Now that The Hills is back, you can guarantee Spencer will be giving his opinion on literally everything. Including his thoughts on Brody’s wife.
