Big Brother is one of my favorite shows of all time mainly because it starts with the contestants being all lovey-dovey and welcoming for about five minutes before they start plotting to destroy each other. And do you know what makes that type of premise even better? Famous-ish fame whores. Because they’re crazy as cat shit and I’m here for it. Now, with the potential cast of the second season of Celebrity Big Brother U.S. being leaked via Twitter, all I can do is hope this list is real, because if it is, the new season is going to be a train wreck.
After winning a Jell-o Wrasslin’ contest over Lance Bass for the Brady Bunch house, HGTV announced plans to turn it into the brown and orange toned shag carpet day dream of 1970s delights. The house in Studio City, CA used for the exterior shots of The Brady Bunch will be gutted and the inside turned into an exact replica of the interior set. Well, Marcia (AKA “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!”), Jan, Cindy, Greg, Peter and Bobby were all on hand to (collect a quick check) and help usher in the re-dawning of this most fabulous decade as re-imagined through reality renovation television.
Everyone’s a secret nasty-ass creep, and I don’t mean just because of what is in that secret folder on your laptop labeled “Grandma’s Retirement Party Collage.” It’s pretty well known that there’s a segment of the population who likes to curl up on the couch with a glass of wine, fire up YouTube, watch pimple popping videos, and squeal with a mix of horror and glee (guilty as charged!). Because the masterminds at TLC know we all secretly prefer our television shows to require no greater an IQ than -4, they decided to make a show about popping pimples, Dr. Pimple Popper. In a shock to nobody, it’s done really well, and it’s been greenlit for a second run of episodes.
Bravo recently announced its upcoming slate of reality TV programming and it includes a fun twist on a classic. Bravo intends to Make Real Housewives Great Again (MRHWGA?) by sending The Real Housewives back in time. According to The Wrap, Real Housewives of The 1960s is slated for the fall. Bravo has proven itself able to deftly engage with our current cultural and socio-economic climate, so why not the 60s? What could go wrong?!
You would think being a cast member of Vanderpump Rules and exposing the world to your bad behavior on the regular would make a person somewhat immune to insults and criticism. But apparently, getting called a cunt by Jennifer Lawrence on live TV was a bridge too far for Lala Kent. E! News reports that on last week’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Jennifer’s famously unfiltered pie hole burped up some half digested chunks of hate in Lala’s direction so Lala kindly offered to beat her ass for free.
It’s not often that the universe conspires to do us a favor but it must feel really sorry for us right now because it’s thrown us a tasty bone. I nearly plotzed (oh who am I kidding, I plotzed like a bitch) when I read in Entertainment Weekly that one of my favorite shows of all time, America’s Next Top Model was going to have a crossover episode with my absolute favorite show of all time RuPaul’s Drag Race in it’s upcoming Cycle 24. As we already know, Tyra Banks is back, and joining her will be Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker, Ashley Graham, and Drew Elliott. Also, since both ANTM and Drag Race are on Vh1 now, there will be a crossover episode starring Katya, Valentina and Manila Luzon.
