Ever since Real Housewives starlet Brandi Glanville‘s book has come out, Drinking and Tweeting, journalists have been skimming what I’m sure are some very exhilarating pages to juice even more details from the Brandi Glanville LeAnn Rimes debacle – which it turns out has been the perfect platform to sell a book. This is what I like to call MFTD — Made For Tabloid Drama. So much so that I can’t even properly investigate Kate Middleton’s pregnancy shawls without finding myself Brandi Glanville adjacent. Every time I suit up to go dig for pregnancy rumors or swim in the bowels of tabloid comments, I’m treated to a new gem of how mother Brandi Glanville handles the parenting thing.

Pregnant Kim Kardashian can’t win. Now that she’s barely showing, concerned bodysnarkers are swooping in to comment on what the Daily Mail has backhandedly described as her “growing curves.” But in the proper and fairly standard bookend to such Fatty McFat coverage, now the rags are leaning in to say that Kim may be going to the gym too frequently. If it’s not one, then it’s certainly the other. More
The Brandi Glanville Eddie Cibrian LeAnn Rimes drama is probably about as interesting as that Real Housewives episode you have DVRed for later. I’m not really paying attention except for those need to know Real Housewives parenting tips such as using Twitter for co-parenting. True gems. But I heard the equivalent of record scratch when an excerpt from Brandi Glanville’s new book reportedly has the reality star joking about how her ex-husband raped her. Nothing engenders a hearty laugh like rape!
ABC announces that they have ordered eight episodes of parents betting on an “individual challenge” for their baby. But don’t judge these parents too harshly, as they’re all competing to win college money. So I guess that makes exploiting your toddler’s milestones on TV just dandy. More
Kourtney Kardashian welcomed her second baby (and future reality TV star), Penelope Disick, last July. Nearly six months later, the eldest Kardashian is letting photographers snap nearly every angle of her 44 lb weight loss — like you do. And don’t forget those multiple Kourtney Kardashian bikini changes! More
The epic Kim Kardashian divorce from Kris Humphries doesn’t seem to be anywhere near finalization. The soon-to-be mother may be building her “dream home” with Kanye West but the latest updates from the E!-sponsored union with Kris Humphries indicate she won’t be moving on any time soon. Legally speaking, of course. More
The Bethenny Frankel divorce just got ugly — as it tends to do when both partners want primary custody of the children. More
Adrienne Maloof secret is out — and it’s not even salacious. The next time somebody wants to have a surrogate in private, remind me not to care.
When it comes to parenting, some days are harder than others. Some days it’s all parks, sunshine, laughter and exhausted kids going to sleep at a decent hour. Other days it’s a symphony of “no’s” and a sneaking suspicion that you’ve birthed your own “karma” child. At the end of one of the latter long, hard, days – wouldn’t it be nice to cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine and watch a reality TV show about crazy parents that make you feel better about your own parenting skills? I think so. More

Some girls dream of big white weddings, white picket fences, and children who nap on a regular basis. (Others dream of living fabulous child-free lives and never ever putting a ring on it, but that’s a different article). But as someone who has already had the big white wedding, pregnant Kim Kardashian‘s “perfect world” fairy tale involves getting that divorce from old hubby Kris Humphries.
The height of placenta eating has come and gone. Sure, some people think they’re still scandalizing us by putting together a placenta facial and swapping placenta recipes. But the celebrity mom trend of grabbing about placenta pills is so 2011. Don’t bother saying that though to the producers of the Tia and Tamera reality show – coincidentally named “Tia & Tamara.” In what can only be interpreted as a grab for ratings in the season finale, the sisters resorted to the whole eating of your sister’s placenta thing. Granted, I guess that is a step further than nursing your best friend’s baby. More
It never fails. Every year I attempt to watch American Idol and every year I stop watching after about three episodes. But I totally have to watch this year because my doppelgänger Mariah Carey is one of the judges and and I totally have my fingers crossed that she will become crazy Mariah, you know, the same crazy Mariah who changed her name to MiMi and had a very public nervous breakdown and showed up at Old Dirty Bastard‘s funeral dressed like Joan Crawford. Now, you may not consider Mariah our doppelgänger but she totally is, because last night when we were all watching the season premier she was also watching, wearing pajamas and curled up in bed with her daughter Monroe.

Who else is thrilled that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo isn’t the colossal catastrophe that everyone thought it would be? Sure, we’re still talking about a little girl being schlepped around and exploited on reality TV, but hey, there are unfortunately tiers to such awfulness. As far as our resident Honey Boo Boo reporter Eve Vawter is concerned, the show has proved to be pretty sweet with an albeit unhealthful family supporting each other through the proverbial thick and thin. And now we can add HIV awareness and safe sex advocacy to the “positive things to come out of Honey Boo Boo” list.
Ugh you people totally need to stop baby-shaming Shawty Lo and the fact he has 11 babies by 10 different baby mamas! What is with you people? Trying to get his new reality show banned, calling him a bad role model on the Internets, and possibly silently judging his choice of jewelry, or that last one may just be me. More
