sister wives

I can't apologize enough for being late to the game with last week's debut of Sister Wives.  Sometimes, I pine so much for Kody Brown's glorious mane that I lose sight of everything else…even the show itself.  Of course, the premiere showed Robyn and Meri fight for My Sister Wives Closet when Kody, Janelle, and Christine aren't necessarily jiving with the "hobby."  In a nutshell, the baubles bomb at a local jewelry expo, and we are left to wonder–yet again–where the Browns will get the money for their dream cul-de-sac.

Last night's episode gave viewers a peek into what the ladies do in their daily lives when it's not their night to spend with Kody.  {heebie jeebies}  Kody also laments that he feels like a constant vagabond skipping from one far-flung rental home to another.  Janelle is hard at work in the gym, and she's starting to see some progress with her weight loss goal.  While she feels kind of like a single mom, she hasn't totally hated exploring her independence away from the family chaos.  You know she's going to be the first to cut and run from this disaster.

Robyn is getting on Kody and the other wives for not being as involved in My Sister Wives Closet.  Kody is concerned that people will mistake his attempts to sell trinket jewelry as patrolling for wife number five.  Christine and Janelle are not on board…they really want to pursue their real estate careers.  Janelle's kids are feeling the pressure of the family's stress, and Janelle is breaking up fights left and right while Kody tries to relax.  There is kicking and screaming and door slamming and video game confiscation and swearing.  Perhaps TLC should consider a Super Nanny crossover?  Janelle calls for reinforcement in the form Goldilocks while the boys rumble.  As Kody tries to discipline his boys, he explains that he often feels like a visitor and has less credibility with his family.  Ding, ding, ding!  We have a winner, ladies and gentlemen!

Honey Boo Boo in Manhattan

They're baaa–ack!  And no one is more happy about it than this girl.  Y'all know I think the Thompson-Shannons of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo put the "real" back in reality television.  Sure, they are unhealthy, and they may not set the best example in every aspect of their lives, they are certainly much smarter than they get credit for from most viewers.

June Shannon wants to make sure her daughters never feel entitled.  She's often said that this crazy ride can end just as quickly as it started, so she isn't going to change how they once lived.  Now in the second season of the family's hit TLC show, she seems hell bent on continuing that trend, as evidenced on last week's first episode.

Are you ready?  Because they are coming!  Of course, by "they" I mean Kody Brown, his glorious mane, his copious amount of children, and (duh!) his Sister Wives!

That's right!  We knew they'd be back for a new season, but now we know when!

It's been a hard time for the Brown family as Kody has recently lost one of his brothers.  Curtis Brown, who has appeared on a few episodes of TLC's Sister Wives, died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Kody shared the sad news with fans via his Twitter page, writing, "Curtis Brown, brother of @realkodybrown & husband of @EricaLBrown333 passed away 6-17. Amazing man who'll be missed!"

I hate the reminders that our favorite reality stars are human just like us.  We get so invested in their lives, that it is always sad when bad news strikes.  Of course, for the family of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, it's the hardships that seem to make them stronger.

Mama June Shannon has been keeping fans updated on husband(?) Sugar Bear's condition as he's been in and out of the hospital several times in the past year.  While she's always tackled his health with a bit of humor, now she's staying mum on what's wrong.

She does assure fans that Alana's dad is still enjoying family time with his girls, and the crew remains upbeat as their scratch n' sniff season premiere approaches.

Breaking Amish: LA is coming soon to a TV near you! 

Once again, TLC promotes Breaking Amish as a series about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, who leave their communities to experience life beyond the church. Only this time the cast visits Los Angeles instead of New York City.

TLC promises, "This season features brighter skies – and darker secrets – as the cast leave their homes and venture west to live together, experiencing a lot of fake firsts along the way." Bright lights! Door knobs! Airplane! Gag me!

"With an all-new cast and a different, vibrant city, Breaking Amish: LA opens the door to these fascinating lives and the journeys they all embark on as they explore this new world in search of who they want to be – at the risk of losing everything they've ever had."

Well this is just…gross.  Y'all know I love all things Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but do I want to smell them?  Not really.  Sadly, TLC thinks that I do.  Don't worry.  The network thinks you want to smell Mama June Shannon, Sugar Bear, Alana Thompson and crew as well.

With the new season of HCHBB right around the corner, TLC has a brand new way for fans to be part of the action.  As the girls fart and burp their way through a day filled with June's forklift foot and infamous 'sketti, now you can be a part of the aroma-filled action.  Still reading without gagging?  Just wait…

I know what you're all thinking, and we're totally on the same page.  It's been far too long since we've had the pleasure of watching Kody Brown's hair blow in the wind as he traverses the roads of Nevada in his nifty convertible.

Fear not though, TLC's Sister Wives will be returning for another season.  We'll get to watch Janelle, Christine, Meri, and Robyn Sullivan Brown as they battle for the attention of a certain lion-maned polygamist.
