8 Mom Reality Shows I’d Rather Watch Than The Rich Kids Of Instagram

8 Mom Reality Shows I'd Rather Watch Than The Rich Kids Of Instagram

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 »

Phil Robertson From ‘Duck Dynasty’ Is My New Favorite Mommy Blogger

Phil Robertson From 'Duck Dynasty' Is My New Favorite Mommy Blogger

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 Has 22 Children, Can’t Currently Pay Child Support, But Totally Deserves A Reality Show

Orlando Shaw Has 22 Children, Can't Currently Pay Child Support, But Totally Deserves A Reality Show

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.

‘Pregnant And Dating’ Reality Show Will Probably Sadly Not Feature Placenta Eating

'Pregnant And Dating' Reality Show Will Probably Sadly Not Feature Placenta Eating

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.

‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Is Making Me Question My Existence And Humanity As A Whole

'Toddlers & Tiaras' Is Making Me Question My Existence And Humanity As A Whole

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.

Epic Family From ‘Queen Of Versailles’ Documentary Is Back To Building Their Massively Tacky Dream House

Epic Family From 'Queen Of Versailles' Documentary Is Back To Building Their Massively Tacky Dream House

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 »

Poor Kim Kardashian Has A Sonogramal Break Down In 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Season 8 Trailer

Pregnant Kim Kardashian has had, so far, a very stressful pregnancy. So much so that a doctor recently paid the reality starlet a visit and told her to not let her Kris Humphries divorce get to her. There’s even further speculation that the mommy-to-be had a miscarriage scare. So leave it to the Kardashian Empire to parlay all that stress and panic into season eight of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” More »

Kendall Jenner Wants To Be A ‘Normal Kid’ Which Means She Needs To Be Emancipated From The Klassy Kardashians

Kendall Jenner Wants To Be A 'Normal Kid' Which Means She Needs To Be Emancipated From The Klassy Kardashians

It must be less than fun to be a Jenner/Kardashian kid in the year 2013. Aside from the few moments were you can mock your mother’s “fake smile,” we’re looking at a steady trajectory of post-baby bodies, reality shows, promotional mommy blogs, and sell sell sell. So it’s really no wonder that 17-year-old Kendall Jenner is kind of over it — at least for “five minutes” a day. More »
