Dose of reality:

Televised weddings, MTV controversy, cancer scares and season finales. There’s no shortage of drama this week in the world of reality TV.

Amazing Race/Big Brother/My Fair Wedding:

“Big Brother” stars Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas turned “The Amazing Race” contestants are getting hitched. They met on TV, so why not get married on TV? The couple will say their “I dos” in the season finale of “My Fair Wedding” on WE. Other familiar reality show faces will appear in the crowd with “Big Brother’s” Matt Hoffman officiating the ceremony.

American Idol:

There’s been lots of rumors and reports about new judges, feuds between those judges and beefs with ex-judges. There’s been months of build up for the new season, which will finally premiere in two hour episodes on January 16 & 17 at 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM EST. In the meantime, take a look at what inspired the “AI” hopefuls to audition in the video below.

The Bachelorette:
Reilly and Villegas aren’t the only reality TV couple to get hitched on TV. On December 16, Ashley & J.P. will marry on ABC. Not to be outdone, “The Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison will officiate.

The new MTV series doesn’t air until January 3, but it’s already causing controversy. Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) has written to the network president urging him to shut down the show that will feature the parting antics of a group of friends in Sissonville, W. Va. Side note, the friends are reportedly really friends who have known each other since they were kids. In the letter reprinted in The Washington Post, he stated, “Instead of showcasing the beauty of our people and our state, you preyed on young people, coaxed them into displaying shameful behavior – and now you are profiting from it. That is just wrong.” Governor Chris Christie was just as opposed to the filming of “Jersey Shore” and look where that got MTV. Watch the trailer below.

Co-host Brooke Burke Charvet took to her blog Modern Mom to share some good news after her thyroid surgery last week. She wrote, “I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news – the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear. So I’m hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank GOD!”

As for the dancers, there’s a rumor that “The Bachelorette’s” Emily Maynard will join the cast of the next season of “DWTS.” If that’s the case she’s already go two professional dancers willing to teach her the cha-cha-cha and the samba.
