It’s summer, and time for a deluge of reality TV, from America’s Got Talent to Big BrotherNailed It! to The Great British Baking Show.

Reality Star Says Tupac Took Over Her Body After His Death

Tupac Shakur lives on…apparently in the body of a reality star. Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules reveals that she believes that she’s possessed by the spirit of the late rapper. She dropped this strange bomb on The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM when asked where she got her style and demeanor.

A post shared by Give Them Lala (@lalakent) on Jan 29, 2018 at 8:08am PST

“I was gonna ask you how did this like sweet, beautiful Utah girl turn into like this cool, hood chick?” McCarthy asked the 27-year-old. “Like on Instagram and stuff your Snapchats are so sexy, funny, but they’re hood.”

The host described Kent as provoking situations and being “fun to watch” on the show.

To this, the reality show star responded: “I don’t know where that comes from, I mean I am a firm believer that when Tupac died he took over my body. I know you’re laughing

Happy New Year! Here are 41 reality shows debuting this week


Happy New Year! It’s Jan. 1, and though it doesn’t seem like a Monday—I will probably not know what day it is all week—it’s the start of a new year, a new week, and many, many reality TV shows.

I count 41: Yes, almost two days worth of reality, unscripted, and documentary series debut episodes in just one week.

The final weeks of December are among my favorite not just because of the holidays, but because television, and the television industry, take their only annual break. I love that respite from new episodes or shows. It allows me to do other things, like organize cabinets while I watch marathons of old favorites (The Twilight Zone, The Golden Girls).

I wouldn’t mind this hiatus lasting a few more weeks. But like 2017, it’s over. There’s a lot on the way this week, beginning with The Bachelor tonight. (If you need a refresher on Bachelor tropes,

Former Hugo Boss Model Sentenced For Murdering Reality Star Girlfriend: ‘He Gutted Her Like An Animal’

Robert Reagan, a 53-year-old former Hugo Boss model, has been found guilty of second-degree murder. He’s been sentenced to 16 years to life in prison for the death of Loredana Nesci, a reality TV star and the subject of the show “Loredana, Esq.”

Reagan and Nesci were in a relationship and had one 5-year-old son together. The child was home during the murder. Reagan later called Nesci’s sister to pick him up in the five hours between the murder and when he called the police.

Reagan had been found guilty in August and was described by People as stoic by Deputy District Attorney Allyson Ostrowski: “When the jury left, he cried a little bit.”

“I think there was overwhelming evidence in the case and it was the right verdict,” said Ostrowski. “I am very grateful for the jury. I am glad she can rest in peace.”

Ostrowski noted that the couple were on the verge of breaking up

Q&A: ‘Cold Justice,’ reality TV vs. scripted TV

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: Could you please tell me if “Cold Justice” is going to return to TV soon? If not, what happened to the show?

A: The series, which originally ran on TNT, will return — but in a new location. Oxygen is revamping itself as “a crime destination network for women” beginning summer 2017, and its lineup will add new installments of “Cold Justice” in the fall.

And what about this change at Oxygen? The network has already been moving more into crime programming, including a “Crime Time” weekend block of programs, which is now part of the lineup Friday through Monday.

“The recent expansion of our ‘Crime Time’ weekend block has enjoyed double-digit gains and has really resonated with our female audience,” said a statement from Frances Berwick, president, Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. (Yes, that is the full
