Every Wednesday, we will be sitting down with a reality star to talk love, relationships, and their experiences on reality TV. This week, we're talking to Marie Roda, a member of the current Real World and the upcoming Challenge: Battle of the Seasons 2.
Reality television has turned dating into a truly trashy affair. Singles who are "looking for love" on these programs are often just looking to ignite their 15 minutes of fame, feigning vulnerability and faking romance just for some camera time; it's enough to make you want to turn off the TV for good.
True love can be as sticky as jam and as sweet as candy sometimes. In fact, it's usually a mix of the two. We all know that in a relationship—even the best ones—love can be a bit crazy and chaotic. It seems as though the newly engaged 'Bachelorette' star Emily Maynard knows this feeling well.
Kate Gosselin is heading back to TV, but this time the kids aren't invited. The mom of eight is returning to the reality game with a dating show to help her find a new man.
In last night’s Miss Advised episode titled "What's Your Type?" the three of you were finally starting to learn more about yourselves when it comes to the relationships you acquire and maintain. However, as viewers who were rooting for you, we think that it would be an understatement to say that you've all been deeply "misadvised" when it comes to your own love lives! As a love and relationship site dedicated to living your best love life, we have taken it upon ourselves to share some of our wisdom based on what the show has depicted so far.
I have to admit that I'm an obsessive fan of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" franchise. Since 2003, I've watched too many crying breakdowns in limousines, steamy hot tub kisses and beautiful proposals that rarely become weddings. However, it wasn't until this season with beauty and single mom Emily Maynard that I began to realize "The Bachelorette" is more than just my Monday-night guilty pleasure.
It was the divorce the entire world saw coming—Jon and Kate Gosselin of TLC's uber-popular reality show, Jon & Kate Plus Eight. We watched the couple bicker as they raised their 8 children, made up of one set of twins and a set of sextuplets. That many kids alone would cause any couple a ton of stress, but when your problems are also broadcast to the entire world on television, it seems to only compound how ugly a breakup can be.
When I first saw the trailer for Bravo's new docu-series, "Miss Advised," a reality show about three single love and dating experts, I wondered: How can these beautiful, successful women still be single?
'The Bachelorette' has officially done what I thought no 'Bachelor' season could ever do. I really like a contestant. Kill me now. Honestly, Emily Maynard is really, really likable. She is NORMAL and honest and funny and sweet and (dare I say it) sincere! So WHY is she on this show where all these bozos compete for her?
I think we've started taking divorce a lil' too casually. Sure, we shouldn't stigmatize divorcees, but we could stop being so cute about our ending marriages. Things like divorce parties, divorce rings, ring caskets and ex-wife shaped urinal cakes (patent pending) sort of make a mockery of the institution of marriage, and the estimable Irish practice of just dealing with something until you die.
This season of The Bachelorette has taken a couple episodes to really get going, but I gotta admit, tonight I felt that old familiar feeling of being completely sucked into the show whether I wanna be or not. I mean, I was already a huge Emily Maynard fan before she handed out her very first rose, but after tonight's episode? Yeah -- I'm really lovin' this gal.
They're baaaack! "Sister Wives" has returned at last, with Season #3 appropriately premiering on Mother's Day, and you know what that means ... more of everybody's favorite Polygamist with a Peter Pan Complex, Kody Brown!
We've had a glimpse into the lives of Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom thanks to their show 'Khloe & Lamar,' and they seem like a really committed couple. But, the two have recently opted to step away from the reality spotlight while they get their personal lives back on track.
We saw it first with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, then again with Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, and most recently, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Will Kevin and Danielle Jonas be the next in this string of celebrity couples to fall victim to the reality show curse?
What's the deal, Khloe and Lamar? The reality TV couple has given the ax to their own show on E!, Khloe & Lamar, according to TMZ. The second season—which is currently airing—will be the last insider glimpse we get of this Kardashian sister and her basketball hubby's marriage.
If last night's season premiere of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" taught us anything it's that the more things change the more they stay the same. Season four picked up exactly where season three ended: With Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and pretty much everybody else hating on Teresa Giudice.
We loved Lauren Conrad and watching the drama of her life unfold each week on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but we must say, the grownup Conrad impresses us even more these days.
