I watch a lot of reality TV. My DVD is currently set and I plan on watching each and every one of my shows every week, sometimes multiple times if I feel like I missed something. Like many people, I’m drawn to the drama-the entertainment. It’s salacious, it’s intriguing, and sometimes, it’s downright unbelievable. But it’s my guilty pleasure, and to be honest, I’m not ashamed.

Well I was just getting settled into this new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and before I could even get into the second episode, I’m hearing news of more housewives in TWO different parts of the country!
As many of you know, the last WE TV reality show that snatched my wig was “Cutting It in the ATL”. Those girls really had me going from beginning to end.

Last night, VH1 aired a groundbreaking special following an episode of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, called #OutInHipHop. The round table discussion, hosted by T.J. Holmes, has been much anticipated since it was announced last week. Anxious viewers tuned in hoping to get a better understanding of what it means to be gay, while being immersed in Hip Hop culture. Two of the show’s stars, Miles and Milan, two men, who are now in a relationship, have been the topic of discussion for quite some time now. We’ve watched their relationship unfold on screen, and last night, we got a chance to hear from both men and women who have made major contributions to Hip Hop, and just so happen to be a part of the LGBTQ community.

The anticipation has been building over the last few months about who would be stepping up on RHOA now that the head honcho, Nene Leakes had stepped down. And after Porsha Williams got kicked off of the show following a physical altercation with Ms. Twirl AKA Kenya Moore, it left fans wondering who we’d actually have left on the show. Well the votes are in.
Being that I’m an 80’s baby, I was around for the start of reality TV, and have had the opportunity to watch it evolve over the years. I must admit, things have changed a lot since we first got the chance to step inside the homes of complete strangers, but one thing has managed to remain the same–these people make for great TV.
Well now. This is something we haven’t seen before. Love and Hip Hop Hollywood is breaking all kinds of barriers with this one, honey! Yesterday, it was announced that Milan Christopher and his rapper boyfriend Miles will be joining the cast for Season 2 of the reality show. And word on the street is, there’s been a little push back from the other cast members.
