    Can you call someone an aerialist if they take off their leg and throw it? Well, I'm going to. Last night saw the season 6 finale of The Real Housewives of New York City, and there's lots to discuss. Though I must say, I feel like I should be doing it with a drink in my hand, because it's sort of like attending a wake. If TV shows had them.

    In today's exclusive video, I break down which storylines worked, which ones seemed edited to death, and what was going on under that table? I also compare Aviva Drescher's leg toss to Kelly Bensimon on Scary Island and Teresa Giudice's table flip.

    There were some CRAZY similarities last night between season 9, episode 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County and the finale episode of Ladies of London. With a side order of Scary Island, because don't we all love comparing these shows?! In today's exclusive video below, I discuss the mistakes made on both sides between Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow, as well as what Tamra Judge had to do with it. But wait!! Over in London, Caprice Bourret is doing the same thing! Let's discuss ...

    Keeping Up With the Kardashians is more fun than The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In today's exclusive episode below, I cover episode 2, season 6 of RHONJ, part one of the Kardashians' Thailand trip, and episode 5 of Botched. Why should Joe Giudice be praying that the judge doesn't see this show prior to their sentencing? Why is Amber Marchese the new fall guy (gal?) and what's UP with Melissa Gorga's rental and Dina Manzo accusing the producers of twisting her words?

    Last night's television included the good, the bad, the MEAN, and the naked. Yes, it was a busy night. We had Kim Zolciak's Don't Be Tardy season 3 premiere as well as the premiere of THREE new shows on VH1, Dating NakedCandidly Nicole, and the one we've all been waiting for since it was announced, LeAnn & Eddie. As in, LeAnn RimesEddie Cibrian, and Real Housewife of Beverly HillsBrandi Glanville. Buckle up people; in today's exclusive video I take on all four shows and I don't hold back.

    Whoa! Reality TV just went to a whole new level. Have you been watching Married at First Sight? OK, I was aware of the show and a little surprised at the press buzz for a brand new show on a brand new network, FYI, rebranded from Biography. Well, this weekend I spent time with literally hundreds of people in the TV and media industry, and EVERYONE is talking about this show. In today's exclusive episode below, I break down what we're seeing (and NOT seeing) so far, as well as episode 6 of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

    Today we're mixing up the Real Deal format a little bit. In addition to coverage of what we saw last night on reality television with Celebrity Wife Swap season 3, episode 11 and The Real Housewives of New York City season 6, episode 19, those two worlds collided! Of course, that means a Real Housewife swapped lives on ABC. I happened to spend the weekend with Jill Zarin and Jenna von Oy and have exclusive interviews with both ladies about their swap, as well as some juicy RHONY backstory and reunion dish from LuAnn de Lesseps. It's all in today's video!

    Hearsay. Who say? What say? Tell you what, last night's reality television viewing was more confusing than health insurance. More confusing than finding your way out of a maze without a map. Between Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge, season 9, episode 13 of The Real Housewives of Orange County nearly made me forget my own name. Plus, we've got Laugh Out Loud moments from the Ladies of London, episode 7. In today's exclusive video I break it all down for you!

    Last night on reality television, the theme was MOCKERY. We saw all sorts, from the vicious to the gentle to the clinical. From the season 6 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to season 9, episode 13 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians to episode 4 of Botched, the differences were dramatic. Do you think Bravo soft-soaped Teresa and Joe Giudice too much, given their upcoming fraud sentencing? In today's exclusive video below, I break down exactly what we did and didn't see on all three shows.

    Did you watch the premiere of Leah Remini's new reality show, It's All Relative, on TLC last night? If you didn't, you should -- it's done in a way that's very clever and assumes that reality viewers are savvier than they used to be.

    In a way, Leah and her producers satirize the whole industry, which means the series will succeed or fail based on how well they strike that balance. In today's exclusive video, I tell you everything I saw and what I thought worked and didn't. Also, there's some serious rumbling going on with the press campaign for The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 6, and today I discuss why the delay in Teresa and Joe Giudice's fraud sentencing is not helping.

    I learned a few lessons this week, first while watching TLC's Sister Wives, season 5 episode 6, and then the two-part finale of Catfish on MTV. This week, Kody Brown and his family provide a great example of basic reality TV 101 -- I'm talking how it all gets put together, not mean-spirited editing or engineering. Fascinating. Plus, Catfish, are you ready for this? Catfish taught me how to be a better parent. No lie. Watch today's exclusive video for all that, PLUS viewer questions.
