Bobby Brown will not appear on this show
UGH. While Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s medical condition remains unchanged (she is still unresponsive, on life support, with organs failing), we are hearing today that members of Bobby Brown‘s family have figured out a new way to cash in on BK‘s medical drama for their own ends. For weeks now, Bobby‘s family members — namely his sisters Leolah and Tina — have been giving interviews to anyone who will ask (and pay, I’m guessing) about Bobbi Kristina‘s health … they’ve been doing this so much that Bobby had to issue an official statement asking the media to stop talking to his family about his daughter. Today we learn that the Brown sisters, Leolah and Tina, and Tina‘s son Shayne are currently filming a reality TV show that will focus on the emotion and speculation surrounding BK‘s failing health. Ugh. I bet you didn’t think the Brown family’s exploitation of Bobbi Kristina‘s tragedy couldn’t get any lower. More »

Back in October we learned officially that former original Real Housewives of New York City castmember Bethenny Frankel would be returning to the show for the upcoming 7th season and today we get our first look at Bethenny back on the show with her RHONY castmates. Bethenny is jumping back onto the show with some old friends/enemies (Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan), a few castmembers who joined the show since her departure (Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman) and one new castmember joining this season (Dorinda Medley). As you can see below, the first trailer for the upcoming 7th season of RHONY looks amazing … and it appears that Bethenny fits right back in with the drama seamlessly.

That's So Janai
Last April, I attended Darion‘s mom’s 65th birthday party here in LA and, wouldn’t you know it, the festivities were filmed for Darion’s new reality TV show Friends To Lovers? As you can see in the video clip above, Janai‘s birthday party is finally shared with the world … which gives us further proof that Darion‘s mom needs to be on TV. I had such a great time with Janai, Darion and all of our friends at her party and you can see some of the fun we got up to together. Enjoy this clip and please know, this is but a tiny taste of all the fun that comes with being friends with Darion and Janai <3

Please tell me I'm not the only one watching this.
If you’re like me, you’ve given up on MTV‘s The Real World many times over. But, dammit, they got me back this season and I have to confess to being a loyal viewer of this show, which has been running since the beginning of time. I rolled my eyes when I saw the commercials for The Real World: Skeletons because it was just painfully obvious that the producers were reaching into their bag of tricks to figure out how to make the show more dramatic. It worked. It’s dramatic, and incredibly interesting. Click inside for more!
The Realness Ru-turns on March 2
In early December, we learned with queens will be competing for drag royalty in the upcoming 7th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the new season … and we learn that the judging panel has been reconfigured with new judges. Santino Rice, one of the main judges of Drag Race since season 1, has been replaced this season with Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley (who will judge the competition alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage). But, even tho Santino will not be one of the main judges this season, I understand he will appear as a guest judge (other guest judges this season will include Ariana Grande, Kat Dennings, Demi Lovato, Kathy Griffin, Tamar Braxton, Alyssa Milano and more). Honestly, I don’t really understand the need for such a drastic change-up of the judging panel but, honestly, the show is all about the drag queen competitors so … I’m not really worried about the quality of the show. From the look of this first trailer, it looks like we are in store for a great season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ahead. The new season premieres on Logo on Monday March 2. Who’s excited?

The TV Guide
Back in November, I shared the first look at the new Bravo TV reality show Friends to Lovers? which stars my good friend Darion Lowenstein as one of the friends on the show lookin’ for love. Last night at Pump in West Hollywood, CA, a prmeiere event was held for Friends to Lovers? which included in-person appearances by the West Coast cast of the show — including my homie Darion. A bunch of us friends got together to celebrate with Darion and watch him make his reality TV show debut live. Naturally, we had an total blast. More »
Not a good look, 'Celebrity Apprentice'
Let me just start by saying this clip lit’rally hurt my head. I have my own reality TV weaknesses, but this is one reason I can only take so much of these shows—OMG everyone is constantly talking over everyone! It took me forever just to figure out WTF was going on! But apparently, Keshia Knight Pulliam (best remembered as Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show) had to awkwardly explain that she hasn’t spoken to Bill Cosby in five years. But it’s awkward because of what we know now, and it’s awkward because everyone in the room (especially Kenya Moore) is attacking her for not having called him to get a donation for a charity. This was filmed long before the sexual assault allegations started making headlines, but Complex points out that some sort of editing or disclaimer should have happened here. I mean, Pulliam is basically fired for not making contact with Cosby. Peep the video for more, and tell us what you think. Also, click inside for a horrific video of all the Bill Cosby accusers speaking out.
A reality show depicting actual hard-working, intelligent women
How did this show real me in? Well, Diane Von Furstenberg‘s House of DVF has to be one of the only non-trashy, entertaining, women-based reality shows on television—and that is quite a feat. It seems like the method for a lot of these shows is very basic: let’s put a group of seemingly well-dressed women together in any scenario whatsoever because seemingly well-dressed women will always try to tear each other apart. House of DVF was one of the first reality shows where I felt like—while there was drama—it wasn’t violent, trashy, or cringe-worthy, and there was actually a lot to learn from the women on the show—especially those helping Diane Von Furstenberg choose her next Global Ambassador.
