5 Reality Shows We Wish Existed
Watching The Real Housewives…With Amy and Tina Premiering tonight on Bravo after Watch What Happens Live! You love them from NBC’s 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation, and now Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are bringing a new voice to The Real Housewives franchise: their own! Watch as Tina and Amy bring back their Weekend Update chemistry and banter as the debauchery unfolds in Orange County, New Jersey, New York, Miami, Beverly Hills and Atlanta.
Who wouldn’t love Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s opinions on the Real Housewives? Here is a reality show: camera on Amy and Tina as they watch the various Housewives shows. Their banter on Weekend Update was priceless, and I’m sure they are just as hilarious unscripted. These two women often speak out about the power of women, but watching the drama unfold in New York, New Jersey, Orange County, Beverly Hills, Atlanta and Miami, Amy and Tina won’t be left speechless.
Gary’s Gripes Tonight on Bravo, it’s Gary’s time to shine! Premiering after It’s A Brad Brad World, it’s Gary’s Gripes! Gary Janetti brings his award-worthy Twitter voice to Bravo’s newest smash hit. Smart, wry and snarky, Gary shares his opinions on everything from foreign politics and fellow Bravolebrities to general views on life, etc. Tune in for laughs and a special guest, Penelope the pooch.
I’m a major fan of Bravo’s It’s A Brad Brad World. Who wouldn’t love Brad Goreski and his super fashionable team?! But one of my favorite things about the show is Brad’s long time love, Gary Janetti. Gary, a writer/producer for Family Guy and the much missed Will and Grace, brings a super snarky and wry sense of humor to all in his on-show interviews. Much in the format of E!’s The Soup, Gary’s Gripes would be just Gary and his sense of humor. Follow his tweets.
Bringing up Blue Ivy Produced by Ryan Seacrest, Kris Jenner and Tina Knowles, Bringing Up Blue Ivy is sure to be E!’s newest hit. Step inside the lavish nursery of the offspring of Beyoncé and Jay-Z. From designer booties and double platinum lullabies to power struggles with baby Kardashian-West, Bringing Up Blue Ivy is sure to be a Sunday night smash hit.
Really, let’s be honest, who isn’t chomping at the bit to be a fly on the wall in the raising of Blue Ivy Carter? After her debut in momma Beyoncé’s HBO documentary special, that adorable little girl is destined for stardom. After all, just hours after her birth she was already a household name and front page news.
ALTernate Reality Coming this fall to the Style Network, ALTernate Reality. Step inside the alternate reality of Andre Leon Talley’s fashion world. Watch as Vogue’s contributing editor and New York City social god ALT struggles though tennis wearing an impractical Louis Vuitton cape and bounces from meeting to meeting about his upcoming late-night talk show. Tune in for ALT’s outsized personality and a chance to “partake in his international fashion lifestyle”.
Andre Leon Talley, the monolith of a man known for gracing the pages of various fashion publications, is, well, eccentric. Often seen around New York City on the arm of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, ALT is quite a sight, in the most fabulous way possible. His eclectic wardrobe and lavish lifestyle would be more than entertaining to see on reality TV and I’m sure subject to much hilarious parody.
America’s Next Twitter Sensation Premiering next on NBC, from the creators of The Voice, America’s Next Twitter Sensation, hosted by mom and Twitter star Kelly Oxford. Watch as 16 hopefuls try and reach 500,000 followers through challenges of wit and smarts. Will they be able to make it to the end and win the prize of a coveted book and television deal?
2013, the age of Twitter fame. No one can appreciate that more than Kelly Oxford, the Canadian mom of three who, with her whip smart and funny tweets, has become a star. With a book released (and, I believe, a television deal), Kelly has made it big from a website that has over 500 million users. Kelly’s observations on pop culture, parenting and life gained her recognition, so who could be next?
