You can always tell it's the middle of summer because the reality shows start to get even spicier. There are epic tantrums and even bigger fights than usual, and at least two terrifying blonde women who like screaming will always threaten to leave whatever show they're on. I love it. It's the best part of summer television, and TVgasm is right here to help you and me (but mostly me) keep up with it.
First she was leaving, and then she totally wasn't and it was all a rumor, but now it's confirmed that J.Lo actually is leaving Idol forever. At least Randy is staying, so we can count on unconditional praise for the contestants, and the use of the word "dog" for a couple more years.
You know how everyone says that all reality shows are just the same formula-- a bunch of good-looking, opinionated people who like to characterize themselves as "strong and independent" forced to be in the same room for hours? Well, TVgasm broke down the six archetypes of reality TV for you. Go find out which one you are!
Toddlers and Tiaras is back. FINALLY. I can finally get my fix of screaming infants in tutus and stage mothers who pretend their children love being stuffed into ridiculous outfits. TVgasm has the scoop on the new season, as well as some quality screenshots from the show.
Remember: If you're ever confronted by someone from reality TV, don't freak out. They're more afraid of you than you are of them.
