Fall is when we start feeling all cozy. We are busting out our favourite sweaters, reaching for our seasonal pumpkin-spiced lattes and hauling out the slow-cookers once again. Now that everyone has settled back into routine we are carving out a little “me time” and catching up on a little reality TV.
Thanks to the gaspy moment this past weekend when Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were laughed at as they were on the Emmy stage as presenters, we’ve renewed our love/hate interest in this series that’s now into its 17th season.
“Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves,” Kardashian said as she presented the award, which was met with audience laughter as Jenner continued, saying, “Telling their stories, unfiltered and unscripted.”
Insert laughter. Apparently, the writers who scripted the show didn’t give them a heads up. It was meant to be funny, y’all! And, it was. We’re pretty sure the Kardashians and Jenners are used to the jabs!
Here are five other reality shows we’re currently watching on the go (yes, even at the gym on that damn treadmill)…
Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen:
This late-night and interactive talk show hosted by renowned producer, writer and TV personality Andy Cohen feature guests from the world of entertainment and pop culture. With 5 episodes dropping each week, this series will become your new obsession. Each show dives into everything from food, fashion, what celebrity is making headlines that week, as well as behind the scenes gossip from favourite TV shows.
Married to Medicine:
Now in season 7, this show features the lives of seven women in the Atlanta medical community with three of the women being doctors themselves. while the others are doctors’ wives. It shows the group as they balance their social circles, careers, and families.
The high-seas drama heats up below the deck as Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain and Ashton Pienaar are all back for season 7 filled with of hookups, hangovers, and hungry charter guests. Captain Lee leads the crew and a whole set of fresh yachties get ready to set sail. The upcoming season will see the cruising around Thailand for the first time on the mega yacht Valor.
A Lie to Die For:
Lies told by some people will be protected at any cost, including murder. Each stand-alone episode takes you on the journey of each case as investigators unravel each complex case of these horrendous tragedies, all to protect the lie. The premiere “A Marriage Bed Of Lies,” looks at the life to two high school sweethearts. Mark and Lori’s life seemed perfect, reaching and celebrating many milestones, including 5 year wedding anniversary, Lori’s pregnancy and Mark is accepted to med school interstate. Alas as they we’re about to make the life changes and move interstate their dreams quickly turned to nightmares.
Former boyfriend and girlfriend Nina Klemm and Michael LeSure turned their breakup into a business of flipping homes. The series follows the ex-couple and their roller-coaster relationship as they work together to buy, renovate and sell high-end properties. There is plenty of bickering and playful flirtation between the two as Michael tries to manage Nina’s expensive taste while staying on budget. It’s not always a walk in the park with this couple, as they are often triggered by baggage leftover from their personal relationship.
