Reality Roundup: A Few of My Favorite People

There’s a reason I tune into reality shows week after week, and it’s not just my addictive personality. Mostly. The people – some of whom I’ve been watching for years, others who flit in and out for a few unforgettable moments – and all the crazy they bring with them, are what truly gives reality…

Reality Roundup: Jersey Does Boca

Sliding into the season with the undeniably heartbreaking death of Teresa’s mother, The Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) would have had me seriously concerned if I weren’t so busy, you know, bawling in the kind of way typically reserved for episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and YouTube videos of people reuniting with their pets. As…

Reality Roundup: What Wouldn’t Lance Bass Do?

Ladies and gentlemen, Lance Bass is AVAILABLE. Not in the romantic sense (based on Bass’s 2016 narrative, he and his husband may be starting a family any day now) – but professionally, he is – as his IMDB page confirms – a “jack-of-all-trades.” No longer just a charming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cameo, the…

Reality Roundup: Pick of the Pairings

Eggplant Parmesan and tequila may be many things but at its core, it’s a terrible idea for a pairing. Just ask some recent Below Deck guests. On the contrary (and luckily for all of our lives), reality TV has offered a number of pairings over the past week that aren’t nearly as much of a…

After five seasons of turning dream homes into reality, Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced the next season of Fixer Upper will be the last. They announced the news of the final season of their show in a heartfelt video on the Magnolia Market blog, seated in front of a giant rustic clock that screams…

Reality Roundup: What Football Season Means to Me

Having long insisted that reality is my sports, I understand football in principle.  But with the season now fully in swing, I’m still have a little trouble relating to it in practice. Enter WAGS Miami. Focusing on, as the name implies, the wives and girlfriends of professional athletes, the show has allowed me to slowly…

Reality Roundup: Reality Airs the Darndest Things

The best part of unscripted television is…well, the fact that it’s unscripted.  There’s nothing better than soaking in the things that people say when they’re not working off of a script (and are not fully sober).  I can only thank the reality gods for the true gems that they’ve dropped in the past few weeks…

Reality Roundup: Checking in with Orange County

There are many reality shows that I dip in and out of – but The Real Housewives of Orange County will never be one of those.  Twelve seasons in and with an original castmember still in tow, the show is still running strong, continuously holding its weight in one-liner gold.  In case you haven’t been…
