Dose of reality.

Threats, feuds, hilarious re-enactments and child brides. Reality TV is nothing if not entertaining.

American Idol:
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj just signed on as hosts of the popular talent show, but the real headlines are coming from their apparent dislike of each other. It seems the two got into it during the Charlotte, NC audition stop. After disagreeing over a contestant, Minaj reportedly hurled a string of four letter words at Carey, who, sources say, had been needling her foe for hours. Their feud could make for an interesting season, but will their antics be a good or bad thing for the ratings?

Couples Therapy:
Season two premiered on VH1 on October 3. Those looking for help with their relationships, with a side of continued enjoyment in the spotlight mixed in, include Alex McCord & Simon van Kempen (both of “The Real Housewives of New York”), Shayne Lamas (“The Bachelor”) and Nick Richie, rapper Todd “Too Short” Shaw & Monica Payne, R&B singer Joel “JoJo” & Tashaunda “Tiny” Hailey, and Doug Hutchison (“Lost”) & his child bride Courtney Stodden. In case you missed the premiere, watch the train wreck below featuring the gang discussing the uncomfortable relationship between Doug and Courtney.
