Well, we've come to the end of the road -- in more ways than one, but I'll get to that later. Today on The Real Deal, we've got the finale of Bravo's Extreme Guide to Parenting, with what's legitimately extreme, what's not, and all sorts of behind the scenes elements I noticed. Also, a Twitter question and a very big announcement from yours truly!
Gaming the system on reality TV is tricky. Sometimes it works and you win big. Other times ... not so much. On the reunion special of Married at First Sight, it was fascinating to hear what went on behind the scenes, and I think we all have a bit more of a clue as to what happened between Monet Bell and Vaughn Copeland. We also got to catch up with Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion as well as Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner. In today's exclusive video, I break it down, as well as an interesting reality TV comparison.
OK, there's church and there's CHURCH. I found myself scratching my head while watching this week's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Now, I have no problem with filming weddings, christenings, maybe even funerals -- although RHONYSonja Morgan's doggie funeral didn't involve high mass. But Ash Wednesday? Even this heathen wondered about that. But there's much, much more to discuss about season 6, episode 9 in today's exclusive video below.
Hey hey, it's Friday and it's The Real Housewives of Lockup. I mean, Atlanta. Or New Jersey. Or parents who should be locked up. Oh hell, I'm confused now. Is it too early to start drinking? Well ... in today's exclusive video, we examine Bravo's Extreme Guide to Parenting, episode 5, as well as the Apollo Nida prison surrender and whether that was captured (no pun intended) for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Also, Teresa Giudice is being prevented from cashing in on a post-sentencing interview after she and her husband learn their fate on October 2. I've got ALL that juice and more in today's video below.
This week, we saw two 30-minute episodes of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, and I continue to marvel at how sharp and together the Duggar family is with their handling of media, family news, and show promotion. These guys are GOOD. In today's exclusive episode below, I take on what makes the Duggars so relatable and an insight into the WHY behind Michelle's agreement to have 19 children.
Other people's marriages, other people's divorces. We can't get enough of hearing about them, so of course last night's finale of the FYI network's Married at First Sight was must-see TV. Did you call it? I actually did, but I thought I was going to be wrong, which I explain in today's video below. Let's discuss!
Now that her marriage is fixed, what will Shannon Beador do next? It's a fair question. Real Housewives of Orange County breakout newbie star Shannon made an entire season out of her failing marriage, which happily resurrected itself and, as of the reunion special, was stronger than ever. So, given that she's surely earned herself a second season, what's next? More feng shui? In today's exclusive episode below, I break down the Secrets Revealed episode. Why the producers make them, what I saw, and predictions for next season.
My, oh my. There's lots to discuss about last night's Real Housewives of New Jersey, season 6, episode 8, as well as new news in the Joe and Teresa Giudice case, and another casting bloodbath for The Real Housewives of New York City. What does this all mean for the cast, the RHONJ camera crew, and Bravo's bottom line? In today's exclusive episode below, I go over ALL of it in detail.
Color me shocked. An episode of The Extreme Guide to Parenting that I didn't hate. I didn't want to call child protective services, I didn't want to bang my head against the wall or pour a shot of tequila at 10 a.m. Wow. In today's exclusive episode, I examine the Jiu-Jitsu Valencias as well as Mama Brooks and what she's doing with her daughters in episode 4. Also, we have a revisit down south to the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama, for episode 5 of Jersey Belle, topped off with a salute to the inimitable Joan Rivers.
What do 19 Kids and Counting & Married at First Sight have in common? Besides no sex before marriage, that is?!? In today's exclusive episode below, I examine episode 9 of the FYI Network's relationship show as well as the season 9 premiere of TLC's 19 Kids. Between Jill Duggar's wedding plans and real-life baby news and the MAFS couples days before their decision to stay married or get divorced, there's LOTS to discuss.
