Viewers and readers, I'm thrilled to bring you FIVE days a week of programming! Today, we've got Kandi's Wedding, the latest spin-off of the wildly successful Real Housewives of Atlanta, as well as WeTV's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, and sneak peeks of Bravo's summer lineup, including the return of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Or the Jersey Shore. Or something like that. Read on and watch the exclusive video!!
I was struck by more than a few crafty network moves regarding Kandi Burruss' new spin-off. AND ... I liked it. I break down the drama, including Mama Joyce and Kandi's assistant, Carmon Cambrice.
There's also a new version of Marriage Boot Camp, a real-life marriage retreat run by counselors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll and retooled for television by WeTV. This season focuses on reality stars, and I was fascinated by the differences between MBC and VH1's Couples Therapy, as my husband and I participated in their second season. Between Real Housewives of Orange County alumni Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, and Bad Girls Club's Tanisha Thomas, let's just say the Carrolls have their work cut out for them. And we haven't even gotten started on The Bachelorette it-couple Trista and Ryan Sutter, Jersey Shore's JWOWW and Roger, or Braxton Family Values' Traci. Watch below!
Finally, sneak peeks of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Game of Crowns. The return of Dina Manzo and why NOW is particularly important. And three new girls. And some fun bags. Did I just write that? Yes. Yes, I did. Watch now, and tell me in the comments which series you'd like me to cover.
