Considering that a reality show in which parents can “bet” on their babies was greenlit, there’s just no telling what the next “big” reality TV pitch might be. But a look at a recent casting call for Brooklyn women who have been incarcerated can certainly give us a tip. Brooklyn mothers, grab your Bugaboos from your VIP stroller parking and take the tots out early from toddler CrossFit. You need to be in this lineup. More

Yeah yeah, parents can shield their kids from what kind of media they are exposed to and what they are buying for their Kindles and it’s ultimately the parents’s responsibility, but ideally don’t we want a world for our young daughters where they realize that becoming famous for having a private sexual moment leaked to the press isn’t something admirable?

I like some reality TV shows. I like seeing how other people live. But all this new rich kids show will do will make me furrow my brow a lot and invent new profanity. I wish someone would ask me what would make good reality TV because I have many ideas about the sorts of shows us moms are interested in watching, that don’t feature incredibly rich children and incredibly rich housewives with punch cards from their local boxtox-emporium. Here are my ideas.
With Pregnant and Dating wrapping up a couple of weekends ago, I am now going through reality TV withdrawals. What do I watch next? But the real question is, how are the ladies of Pregnant and Dating adjusting to the new little ones in their lives? I was delighted to speak with Melissa Meister, celebrity stylist, costume designer, and now mom to baby boy Arrow Meister! More
Everyone’s favorite dead beat dad of the year is back! Orlando Shaw, the
father sperm donor from Nashville, Tennessee, is getting his own reality show, just like our own Eve Vawter said in her so-smart-she must-be-psychic prediction. More
Real Housewives of Atlanta darling, NeNe Leakes, may have divorced husband Gregg Leakes in 2011. But I guess the couple that films reality TV shows together stays together? The pair re-wed over the weekend in Atlanta and all your favorite Housewives, across multiple Bravo networks, were in attendance — along with various things to shill. More
I love Duck Dynasty when I actually remember to watch it and reading about family patriarch Phil Robertson‘s take on parenting has totally forced me to set my DVR. For those of you unfamiliar, Duck Dynasty is a reality series on A&E about the Robertson family who became wealthy for having a business that specializes in duck calls and other duck hunting products. I’m not a hunter, but I think ducks are cute, and this show is cute because even though all the men in the family look like members of a ZZ Top cover band they all seems like pretty nice, decent humans.

Orlando Shaw needs to figure all of this out because he needs to support the kids he has. He need to learn how to co-parent with these women and even though he claims he does see his kids a lot, I’m sure he needs a better system for that too. Even though Orlando Shaw is a sound bite, and I’m amused at him like everyone else who is watching this dad spew his parenting advice, it’s a terrible story. The reality of it is, I’m sure there have been times when these kids needed something like diapers or new school shoes and Orlando just didn’t contribute, leaving one of his baby mamas to figure it out on her own.

Real Housewives star, and I suppose Bravo TV starlet, Kim Zolciak, is expecting her fifth baby with her 27-year-old husband Kroy Biermann. And despite having two daughters, Brielle and Ariana, from a previous relationship, Kim is pushing for another girl to douse in pink and glitter. You go with your uterus, Kim. More
The WE network has a new reality show whose title probably makes most people want to cringe. It’s called Pregnant and Dating. When I first read about it on our site I winced a little. Now, I think it’s kind of awesome.
And whilst these fair maids look for love, it would be totally bitching if it showed them getting in catfights over baby names and who ate the last of the Ben and Jerry’s. I can’t even begin to imagine what will be presented to potential suitors during the elimination ceremony (ZOMG BUT THINK OF THE TYPE OF ELIMINATION CEREMONIES THEY COULD HAVE CONSIDERING PREGNANT LADIES HAVE TO PEE CONSTANTLY) but it better be something like a baby rattle or a pregnancy test stick or a beige toned nursing pad.

The big uncensored Kardashian tell all interview with Ryan Seacrest that I kept seeing advertisements for at the gym finally debuted. Turns out that the long-awaited answer behind the cliff-hanging “would you get married again, Kim?” is a giddy capitalized “Yes.” But will E! be paying for the catering this time? The answer may surprise you. More
I understand wanting to secure a stable financial future for your child. This is definitely being accomplished by the mother of former Toddlers & Tiaras star, Isabella Barret. What I don’t understand, is teaching your six-year-old to care about Michael Kors heels and driving mini Cadillacs. When securing a financial future for your child morphs into securing a “fabulous” lifestyle for them – I think your priorities are a little out-of-whack.
If you haven’t seen the Queen of Versailles documentary, you need to. Like now. Like open another window with your Netflix streaming and have that loading while you finish reading this post. We’re talking epic layers of wealth, class, straight up nanny enslavement, economic recession commentary, women’s roles, and that’s only the first half hour. But for those of you who haven’t had the Queen of Versailles experience, suffice it to say that the obscenely wealthy Siegel family (of eight children) set out to build a Versailles-inspired home in Florida.
Then the economy tanks. More
