'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Premiere: What Was Fake & What Was Actually Real (VIDEO)

Kim Kardashian

Talk about smart. While I have long enjoyed the fashion hits and misses of the Kardashian Krew, I had never watched their reality show. Ever. That all changed this weekend with the premiere of season 9 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, as well as episodes 2 for both Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars and Kandi's Wedding, aka The Real Housewives of Atlanta wedding spinoff number (what is it now??). I've got ALL the inside dope in today's exclusive video.


marriage boot camp

First up is Marriage Boot Camp, and I feel that someone in particular is sucking all the oxygen out of the house, and both the producers and therapists are letting her run away with the show, to the detriment of the other cast members. Guess who?!? I'm sure you can, if you're watching. BUT ... there's a lot more to the story. In today's video I go deep into the different reality television genres and prototype characters, and how they all mash up together, plus a little compare and contrast between MBC and VH1's Couples Therapy, which I experienced first-hand.

Over in Atlanta, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker continue to battle Mama Joyce, and I'm beginning to understand that Kandi and Todd have gotten together to ensure that this is THE.BEST.WEDDING.SPINOFF.EVER. All the reasons why are in today's episode. Plus, the clever use of a standard reality television device; do you know what it is?

Finally, I watched, for the very first time, an episode of the Kardashians -- the season 9 premiere, to be exact. It'll be a big season for them, with the split of Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner, the Kimye wedding, and Khloe's dissolution of her marriage to Lamar Odom. I go in deep to WHAT makes this show so addictive, and how it differs from the Housewives. Watch now!

Be honest, is Mama Joyce the most scandalous Real Housewives star in the history of the show?
