Continuing the grand tradition of trashy tv-we-won’t-admit-to-watching, Andy Cohen and Bravo unveiled eleven new shows at their Upfront presentation in Los Angeles yesterday. Deadline Hollywood rounded up the newness for us to judge…then set weekly recordings for.
Shows that will be renewed: Top Chef Just Desserts, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Hurrah!) Bethenny Ever After, The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Why?) and Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.
Now for a glimpse at a few of the new series, some of which border on just plain wrong…
Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis-Lewis won some of us over on Flipping Out. Now he’s taking his taste and judgment to someone else’s home to make them feel bad about themselves. Jenni Pulos will be there to rap and console the victims as they weep for simpler times and discarded window treatments.
It’s A Brad Brad World-Now that Brad Goreski has cut professional ties with boss Rachel Zoe, it’s time to take those short shorts to the top! We knew full well that Goreski was going to land his own show the moment he said hello to a stink-eyed Taylor Jacobson. Now it’s time to bear witness to Goreski’s life-after-Zoe. Can he do it? Yes he can!
The Therapists-I might have to draw the line at this series. Bravo describes it as a look into the lives of LA’s top therapists as they balance patients and their own personal lives. This makes me uncomfortable. What top therapist would agree to such a thing?
Most Eligible: Dallas-This is another term for The Real Housewives Of Dallas. It’s sink-or-swim, gaudy Texas socialites. Sparkle and shine, or go the way of D.C. (and probably Miami).
