“The Real World,” television’s second longest-running reality show behind “Cops,” is switching things up for their 29th season, which will have the cast returning to the third season’s home of San Francisco. Initially, seven strangers will move into a house and have their lives taped … but one month into the three-month shoot, the roommates will go on a day trip … and when they return, they’ll discover their exes have moved in. Something tell me people are going to stop being polite and start getting real right quick. According to an article on EW.com, it sounds like “The Real World: Ex-plosion” has already been filmed and while this little twist took some scrambling to arrange — producers had to convince the exes to drop everything and join the cast too — it worked out, with five of the seven agreeing to appear on the show as well. It will air sometime next year on MTV. Keep reading »

Aaaand this one falls firmly under the category of Things I Do Not Wish To See On My Internet: “Teen Mom 3″ star Mackenzie Douthit McKee graced Instagram to share a touching family photo depicting herself, her husband, and their two-year-old son proudly showing off their latest kill. Trust, there is nothing I am more interested in seeing on my computer screen than a gruesomely murdered buck, blood trickling out of its mouth, eyes still open, organs exposed, being held up by the horns next to two grinning morons and their barefoot toddler on the back of a pickup truck. You can see the uncensored photo on Mackenzie’s Instagram, because I am not about to repost that shit. #lovemylife [Us Weekly]

Jon and Kate Gosselin, of the infamous series “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” still make headlines with their vicious legal battles. We rarely hear much, though, about the kid that got them on TV in the first place. Thirteen-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 9-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Alexis, Collin, Leah, Aaden and Joel grew up with camera crews in their home from 2007 to 2011. When Jon spoke with Oprah Winfrey Sunday night on her series “Where Are They Now,” he admitted to what viewers had long suspected — growing up as a pint-sized celebrities impacted his children’s sense of character.
“Yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationally. Great. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people.” Keep reading »
Sorry, “Basketball Wives” fans, but VH1 has pulled the plug on the show’s upcoming reunion special.
According to reports, producers at the network canceled the season five reunion because Evelyn Lozada refused to participate. Sources say the reality star bailed “because she’s sick and tired of talking about her split from ex-husband Chad Johnson” and she knew “the break-up would be the biggest topic on the reunion show.” Read more at Hello Beautiful…
The strangest thing about Carlton Gebbia, a new cast member on “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills,” isn’t her name. It’s that she is a practicing Wiccan. Yes, the new cast member of “RHOBH” is a bonafide witch. Keep reading »
Sigh. Tonight, after three long (beautiful, obsessive, mindblowing) months (spent watching livefeeds 24/7), “Big Brother” will crown the winner of its 15th season, awarding either GinaMarie Zimmerman (the Staten Island native who lost her job within the first few weeks for using racist language in the house), Spencer Clawson (the “redneck” from Arkansas, who made headlines for making a questionable pedophile joke on camera), or Andy Herren (a part-time college instructor, who is gay) with the $500,000 prize. Before that, the two finalists who won the first and second rounds of the final Head of Household competition will compete in the third round; whoever comes out victorious will choose who they want to sit next to in the final two, sending the last person to the jury. The jury will decide the winner. So, after watching the live feeds incessantly, who do I think will and should win the “most controversial” season of “Big Brother”? My thoughts, after the jump! (SPOILER ALERT: I reveal who won part one and part two of the HOH competition, so don’t click on unless you want to know.) Keep reading »
Mars Reality Show Update: More Than 200,000 People Have Applied For A One-Way Ticket To The Red Planet
Back in April, we told you about an intergalactic reality show in the works called called “Mars One,” which will give a few lucky cast members/astronauts a one-way ticket to the red planet. Yes, as in going to Mars never to return again. And f that weren’t enough, the whole process will be captured on film and sent back to Earth in the form of reality TV. With the state of the world, that sounds awfully appealing. The escaping part, not the reality TV part. But just think…no paparazzi on Mars! Keep reading »
Out of every bright star in the overcrowded reality TV sky, I have to say that Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is my absolute favorite. I discovered Big Ang one afternoon, slumped on the couch after a very late night, scrolling thru the deep, dark corners of Hulu. Settling on Mob Wives, I was greeted with a vision. Who is this glorious creature before me? I thought. Those lips. That hair. Those giant boobs that can really only be described as “melons.” Big Ang, with a voice like crushing gravel, a body that is actually out of tis world and an aesthetic that is Janis from the Muppets meets Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny with a dash of early Kardashian, is a woman after my own heart.
Let’s face it: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are the best thing to ever happen to the dysfunctional treasure trove that is Kardashian family. They just may be the best thing to happen to reality television ever: they radiate from the screen with what can only be described as “sparkle,” bringing with them their endless capacity for high-quality, intellectually stimulating primetime entertainment.
Sure, they’re a little wacky and definitely unconventional, but isn’t that what gives them their charm and grace? Yes, when they got married after just a monthlong courtship (perfectly reasonable, obviously), we all had our doubts. But as the years go on, they’ve been keeping it together with no high-drama celebrity divorce murmurs in sight — until now.
In the alternate reality that is the Kardashian universe, Khloe and Lamar proved themselves to be the most grounded of the pack, and that’s why I’m positive that they can make it through their latest hundred-dollar-bill-sprinkled rough patch. Among the trash heap of celebrity marriages gone by, these two twinkle with (albeit currently drug-riddled) authenticity, still standing as others drop like flies. Keep reading »
