Over the past few years, some very unappealing men have managed to land their own reality TV dating shows. Let’s just say that I have never had any desire to date Flavor Flav. Nor could I ever stand Bret Michaels’ catch phrase “What’s a goin’ on?” in real life. Sure, I do think Ray J is hot, but anyone who has a sex tape is probably just not for me. But now we have truly reached the bottom of barrel. After Tareq Salahi‘s wife left him for Journey guitarist Neal Schon, he has figured out a way to make lemonade out of lemons. Sources close to the “Real Housewives of D.C.” alum say that Tareq is pitching a dating show called “Seducing Salahi,” where 14 women will compete for his affections.

The second season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is set to premiere on September 5th. Bravo had already sent off screeners of the first episode to the press, which features Russell Armstrong‘s then-wife, Taylor Armstrong, buying lingerie in an attempt to spice things up and talking—and even bursting into tears—about how they were going to couple’s therapy. A week before Armstrong was found dead in an apparent suicide, he talked to People about his role on the show and said that he was feeling extreme emotional distress about it. “It got really overwhelming,” he said. “When you get a TV show involved and all the pressure, it just takes it to a whole new level. … We were pushed to extremes.” Keep reading »
All of a sudden, Kandi Koated Nights has a brand new meaning. Apparently, Kandi Burruss of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has branched out from her online talk show and has started making her own sex toy line. We won’t know much about the products in the line until the launch party, which is happening sometime in the near future, but I am crossing my fingers for lots of glitter and animal print. Whatever the toys may be, I have to give Kandi props for thinking outside the box. Thank goodness she didn’t do the expected—like bottle a perfume, or create her own clothes line, like so many castmates before her. [Huffington Post, The YBF] Keep reading »
Last night’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” was highly entertaining, if oddly off season. (Am I the only one who has a hard getting into the Christmas spirit when it’s 90 degrees out?) I was highly amused when Jacqueline joked as she set her table for a dinner party, “Teresa’s flipped a table and Joe bangs on tables. I don’t know why these tables take so much abuse from them! One day they’re gonna fight back.” Oddly, they didn’t. But during the shindig, our favorite new housewife—Joe Gorga—put on Jacqueline’s glittery bodysuit and did high kicks, on a dare from Albie. It’s the second time he’s rocked drag on the show. “Am I supposed to put that back on when his balls are flopping around in there?” Jacqueline asked, watching him. And his wife Melissa added, “I’m so not having sex tonight.” [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Move over Ramona, NeNe, Gretchen, and Camille. Author and Christian relationship advice columnist Ty Adams has created a spoof version of Bravo’s infamous franchise called “The Real Housewives of the Bible.” It will be a two-part, straight-to-DVD series and will be out next month. “I was frustrated with what I was seeing,” Adams said. “A lot of society is looking towards programming to educate them on relationships and these shows haven’t effectively done that. They have ruined and tainted our ability to secure good relationships and to make women into good wives.”
The concept here? Keep reading »
