Dose of reality.
Cancellations, season enders and show renewals are par for the course in reality TV, but this week also brought us a possible returning housewife, a scathing review and someone called Big Sexy. Take a look at what's going on in the world of reality TV.
America's Best Dance Crew:
Randy Jackson isn't just the judge who calls people "Dawg" and "pitchy" on "American Idol." He also produced "America's Best Dance Crew" on MTV. But while Jackson remains the mainstay in the otherwise revolving door of judges on the long running singing competition, the dance reality show is another story. It has been canceled after seven seasons.
America's Next Top Model:
Will Leila, Laura or Kiara be named "America's Next Top Model?" Watch the promo below and tune in to the College Edition's season finale on November 16 at 8:00 PM on The CW.
He didn't find the love of his life on the dating show, but Ben Flajnik isn't done with reality TV. Flajnik is reportedly working on a series about his wine business Envolve. Nothing is official yet, but if all goes well, viewers will watch Flajnki as he navigates wine-making along with his family and friends. Is this something you'd watch?
In other "Bachelor" news, Jake Pavelka could be romancing someone off screen, but who is still in the spotlight, naturally. He is said to be dating actress Kristin Chenoweth ("GCB," "Glee"). The surprising pair was reportedly spotted holding hands during a lunch date.
Emily and Jef might not have had their happily ever after off screen, but not all TV couples are doomed. Former 2011 "Bachelorette" Ashley Hebert is marring her chosen one J.P. Rosenbaum. Since they met on TV it seems fitting that they will also get married on TV. The couple will exchange vows in front of their closest friends and family and millions of TV viewers. "The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding" will air on ABC December 16 with none other than reality show host Chris Harrison officiating. How can their marriage not last under those circumstances?
Big Texas Heat:
The CMT series follows the on and off duty escapades of the small town Trinity, Texas police department. As for how they adjusted to cameras following them around 24/7, rookie Officer Morales said, "I agree with Chief about forgetting about the cameras. However, I never forgot about them. I was always trying to be a camera hog and kind of step in there even if I was in the background because I like being looked at. But having the cameras, especially they were here a little over 2.5 months plus I’m telling you that…couldn’t have sent a better production crew. The camera guys, the sound guys, the PAs, the producers all those guys they became really part of us and they became a great group of friends. We’re in contact with them now. We have our moments with them. We’re texting them. They text back with us even though some of them are out in California or wherever they live, but we’ve created a lot of really great friends, and with them sending a great crew like that it really helped us to be more natural and more who we really are."
If you missed the premiere last week, meet the cast, including an officer nicknamed Big Sexy, in the clip below.
Teen bride and VH1 reality show star Courtney Stodden was all set to debut as a singer at the West Hollywood gay bar the Abbey. Sadly for her, but perhaps a bonus for the unsuspecting crowd, her appearance was canceled. The bar says she wasn't a good fit, but Stodden's mom thinks the press and controversy surrounding her daughter caused the club to change their mind. Whatever the reason, we're going to assume it's for the best.
Dancing With The Stars:
Soccer star and former celeb dancer Hope Solo had a pre-wedding altercation with then fiancé/now husband and former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens. Read more about it in Soaps.com's Celebrity News.
Married To Jonas:
More tales from Kevin Jonas and his bride Danielle will be told on E! as the series has been picked up for a second season. When season two premieres next spring, viewers will watch as Kevin and the Jonas Brothers work on their new album and go on tour. Danielle won't be left home to worry about Kevin's on the road antics, as she will keep herself busy by starting her own business back home in New Jersey.
