It’s a Girl...and a Ratings Booster!

The Kardashian clan reached new levels of ridiculousness as they premiered Season 8 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Sunday night on E! Fans were treated to the seemingly inevitable Bruce Jenner prison break and likely the beginning of the end of his marriage to Kris, a Kourtney K-style stance for women’s equality in the world of anal sex, and apparent new cast member and eye candy, Brandon Jenner.

Bringing the “Real” Back to Reality TV

After a lack luster season from its New York counterparts, Stevie J and the rest of the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast return for Season 2 of the VH1 series. Picking up right where it left off, tangled in a web of love, sex, lies, and misplaced aggression, all 11 original cast members treated their audience to a night of pure entertainment.

From the continued love triangle between Stevie J, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez, which looks to be materializing into a Marvel Comic-esque battle of good versus evil, Mommy Maid versus The Prostitute, to Momma Dee's deluded depiction of her son, Lil Scrappy as Atlanta’s Prince William while sipping red wine through a straw. Her extreme exhibition of undeniable tactlessness delivers a ratchet rawness uncommon to reality television.
