    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 RHONY Sonja 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.

    This week's episode of Below Deck was certainly one jam-packed hour. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that it was one of the more action-packed sessions of sitting on my butt that I have yet to experience. There's a lot I could dish about in light of all of last night's events, but I want to focus on Ben's outrageous behavior. 

    So, what exactly qualifies as 'outrageous' when it comes to discussing the over-hair-gelled British cook? Not his hookup with Kat (frankly, that was totally unsurprising as was the nasty pillow the next day), but the way he behaved with Kate, the chief stew, when his dinner service totally failed to impress the newest batch of charter guests. The whole mess was very clearly his fault. He needed to step up and take some responsibility instead of lashing out at Kate who is just trying to do a good job.

    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!

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think Kate got a totally raw deal from her co-workers on tonight's episode of Below Deck. For those who missed last week's episode (shame upon you, naturally), Kate, after being called a bitchy kill-joy by a charter guest, left a towel on his bed in the shape of a penis. This week was alllll about the fall-out of her decision to make her feelings about the charter guest known through the lost art of linen-folding. 

    Her charter guest noticed it immediately and brought it to the attention of the other crew members who got in a giant kerfuffle about it. They all took Kate to task. Here's the thing that turned me off about this -- the charter member OBVIOUSLY thought it was a hilarious stunt. He was SMILING and taking photos of the blanket! He knew he was in the wrong calling Kate a bitch, and he was definitely one of those guys who respects it when people call him out and up the ante. The crew had no right to go after Kate to apologize.

    This week on 19 Kids & Counting, things got 10 kinds of romantical. Or at least, you know, two kinds of romantical. Engaged couple Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard went on a romantic hike and ate some hummus. That's good and sweet and what have you, but Jessa Duggar's date with Ben Seewald kicked courtship into overdrive when they went to visit a gun range and put their skills to the test. Turns out, Jessa Duggar is borderline assassin-level good with a shotgun! 

    Long-time fans of the show might remember that for her 18th birthday, Jessa celebrated with her family at the gun range. I had completely forgotten this and was beyond impressed when she all nonchalantly annihilated her target. She put her boy-toy to shame but remained, in classic Duggar fashion, totally humble and brushed off her success when it came to hitting the target.

    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.
