Dose of reality.

This past week, reality TV featured a surprising elimination, a couple of premiere announcements, a wardrobe malfunction and a Simon Cowell interview. We also learned that reality TV stars aren’t completely self centered as a few are stepping up for good causes.

American Idol:
Season 12 of “American Idol” gives pop star wannabes a chance for greatness once again in January. Take a look at the promo as Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and Ryan Seacrest anticipate making someone’s dream come true.

Big Brother:
Season 14 contestant Frank Eudy will join stars from Daytime November 9 – 11 in Marco Island for SoapFest. The event will raise money for several children’s charities. For more information go to Annual SoapFest Charity Weekend.

Dancing with the Stars:
Despite scoring a 30 last week, Sabrina and Louis were eliminated on “Dancing with the Stars.” Now that history has repeated itself and Sabrina was once again eliminated when perhaps lesser dancers should have gone home. Do you agree with the results? Watch the perfectly scored dance and decide for yourself.
