Yesterday, to kick off the first official day of summer, Lifetime announced its reality TV summer premieres.
In addition to a brand new Little Women: LA spinoff, Little Women: Couples Retreat, we have the return of both Dance Moms and Project Runway to look forward to. As for new reality TV shows, get ready for So Sharp, featuring the University of Louisville Dance Team, and Growing Up Supermodels. Look below for more about each premiere.
As for the new shows, oh boy, are there some surprises – Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel teaming up to scout, buy, and design amazing properties, Shep Rose looking for love, Ryan Serhant training sales agents and showing off his skills, and more. Check out the list of new shows below.
I would love to see a reality show staring Miley Cyrus. Unfortunately, that is not happening, but her sister Brandi Cyrus and her mother Tish Cyrus are set to star in their own series on Bravo.
There’s no word if Miley will be gracing the show with her presence, but I’m hoping that she does. Maybe she will make a brief cameo via speaker phone or FaceTime like Lindsay Lohan did when her mom and her sister had their short lived reality show Living Lohan a few years ago.
I have no idea what to expect from Mariah Carey’s upcoming reality TV show, but I am so here for it. I am just hoping that it’s not some super polished show about her preparing to perform in Vegas and record in the studio. That sounds like a yawn fest.
I am really hoping for some raw and crazy behind-the-scenes footage of Mariah complaining about lighting options and seamlessly throwing shade. The show Mariah’s World is set to premiere at some point this Fall, so obviously Mariah has been promoting it and talking about what makes her show different than other celebrity reality endeavors.
I jumped the gun when it came to my excitement in response to the news that Jennifer Lopez has a new reality TV show in the works. I was hoping that we would get a behind-the-scenes look at her taking care of the twins in between her Las Vegas performances, but it is not that kind of show.
JLo’s show is not even going to be about her. It is actually a dance competition show – which is not too shocking since JLo is super private these days and we all know about her extensive dance background. I’m just a little confused though since it’s not like there’s some shortage of dance competition shows in reality TV. With that said, I can’t help wondering how this show will be different.
St. Louis fans were really in an uproar when the St. Louis Rams were moved to California and were renamed as the Los Angeles Rams. So now I’m pretty curious about how people will react to the new E! reality show associated with the reborn NFL team.
I feel like E! loves these sports-related shows these days, but none of them are major hits, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one goes on top of the fact that the LA Rams are a pretty polarizing team these days.
Good news – maybe?! – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already been renewed. Bad news – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast won’t change much for season seven. Why can’t we have nice things?
Earlier today, Bravo announced the six new and fourteen returning shows that will fill its summer and fall schedules. Obviously, RHOBH is on the list for fall. It will be a while before the cast is set in stone and revealed; however, when a fan tweeted @ Andy Cohen that Lisa Rinna, Yolanda Foster, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson must go, he replied, “No way!”
Are y’all still with me? If you haven’t taken a sledgehammer to your phone/tablet/computer because of Andy‘s bad judgementTweet, look below to find out what other questionable choices goodies Bravo has in store for viewers.
“Real Housewives of Potomac is the show you never saw coming, and it is going to take everyone by surprise!,” said Andy. “As for Real Housewives of Dallas, it is a natural extension of the franchise with a Southern twist that ‘y’all’ will enjoy.” A shout out to our readers who guessed “Dallas” in our Poll Party!
