5 Reality TV Shows That We'd Love To See Produced

Are you tired of reality TV shows? Are you tired of watching a bunch of grown-ass women argue and bicker over a bunch of petty things (see above!)? Are you tired of watching people who are famous for doing, well, "nothing" spending their lives being followed by cameras? Are you tired of all the drama that reality TV brings? Say it with us: Hell no!

You might pretend like you hate reality TV—we'll admit: it's not exactly the highest form of entertainment—but when it comes right down to it, you've got your DVR set every week for at least one reality TV show, if not more. So, with that in mind, we have to ask: What are some other reality TV shows that you'd like to see moving forward? We have a few that we'd be interested in watching—or, rather, that we think you would be interested in watching. So, we put together a list of 5 Reality TV Shows That We'd Love To See Produced Soon. If these shows were real, we bet you'd be tuned in.—Chris Yuscavage

The Working Title: Groupie Love
The Stars: Draya Michele, Candy Deep Throat, Bibi Jones
Why It Would Be Great: You want to see drama? This would be drama. All three of the ladies listed here have had high-profile relationships with professional athletes. And all three have tried to overcome their reputations to do bigger and better things with their lives. That's not always easy, though. And this reality show would document them and show the struggles that they go through as a group as they try and pursue their dreams and prove to people that they're more than just groupies. If nothing else, it would amount to a whole lot of drama.

The Working Title: The Big Picture
The Stars: Cameramen from a handful of major tabloids and tabloid sites, including People, TMZ, National Enquirer, and OK!
Why It Would Be Great: There's a war going on outside no celebrity is safe from! And that "war" is the one that goes on amongst tabloid photographers everyday as they try and land shots of celebrities that will help them pay their bills. In this reality TV show, we'd follow a few different photographers to see what it's really like to be part of the paparazzi. All we ever hear is bad things about them. This show would humanize them and, of course, show all the crap they have to take from celebrities on a regular basis these days. [Ed. note: Yes, we know that several networks have tried this approach to a reality TV show, but we need to see it done bigger and better in 2012!]

The Working Title: Crew Love
The Stars: Members of a rap entourage
Why It Would Be Great: Life is glamorous for most rappers. They drink the most expensive champagne on the menu, talk to the baddest chicks in the club, and…well, you can imagine all of the other perks that come with being a young, famous rapper. But, what it's like to be the guy who has to book flights for Drake? Or, the guy responsible for keeping A$AP Rocky's sneakers clean? Or, the guy who posts tweets for 50 Cent? This reality TV show would give an inside look at what actually goes on inside of a rap entourage. It'd be great to convince someone like Drizzy to allow his crew to do this. But, we think that just about any rap entourage could keep us entertained.

The Working Title: I Used To Be A Video Vixen...
The Stars: Melyssa Ford, Buffie the Body, Ki Toy Johnson
Why It Would Be Great: What happens to video vixens when rappers stop calling them to appear in their videos? The video work probably wasn't paying all that well to begin with and they're not traditional "models" by any stretch of the imagination, so we'd imagine that a lot of girls have a hard time capitalizing off their 15 minutes of fame. Very few of them transition to Hollywood or launch super successful careers, and most seemingly disappear off the face of the Earth once their run is up. This reality TV series would get a group of them together out in Los Angeles, force them to bond over their experiences, and then let the fireworks fly. If you want drama, this would have it.

The Working Title: Christina Milian's Crazy Life
The Star: Christina Milian
Why It Would Be Great: We know she was the "Social Media Correspondent" for The Voice (whatever that is) this year, but what we really want to know is what else Miss Milian has been up to lately. Random? Eh, sort of. But, at the same time, she has everything that it takes to be successful on reality TV. Rocky love life? Check! Uncertainty about her career? Check! A personal life that's filled with drama? Check! All she needs is cameras filming her every move to let us in on what's really happening with her right now. C'mon, reality TV producers: This is a hit waiting to happen!

Drake Seemingly Confirms OVO Fest 2019 After Being Trolled At NBA Game

Drake fans are convinced that OVO Fest 2019 is happening after he seemingly confirmed the return of his hometown festival on social media Thursday (May 24).

The unofficial confirmation came in response to Mallory Edens, daughter of Milwaukee Bucks owner, Wes Edens, trolling Drake by wearing a Pusha T shirt while seated court side during Thursday’s NBA Eastern Conference Finals game between the Bucks and the Toronto Raptors.

The shirt was a hit back at Drake's after he was criticized for his court side behavior during game 4. Drake wasn't at game 5, but he took Mallory's jab in jest and wrote a response on his Instagram story that read, “All is fair in war and war and trust me I’ll still get you tickets to ovo fest.”

He also followed Mallory on Instagram and changed his avi to her photo.

For the record, the 6 God made an apparent OVO Fest announcement during the end of a two-night concert run in Toronto last year.

Drake’s OVO Fest launched nearly a decade ago and has previously welcomed acts including J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and The Weeknd. The festival has been on hiatus since 2017.

Geto Boys Reportedly Cancel Farewell Tour After Bushwick Bill Pulls Out

The Geto Boys’ farewell tour seems to be over before it even started. The tour was canceled after Bushwick Bill reportedly pulled out of the jaunt a day before the legendary hip-hop group was scheduled to kick off their first performance.

According to TMZ, Bill felt that promoters were exploiting his recent cancer announcement. He took particular issue with the ominous tour title, The Beginning of a Long Goodbye: The Final Farewell.

Promoters were left with no choice but to cancel the already scheduled concerts after Bill walked away from the tour. The group was scheduled to hit Michigan on May 24, followed by Cleveland, Washington D.C. and New York City over the holiday weekend, with additional tour dates to be announced at a later time. The Geto Boys have yet to formally announce the tour cancellation but group members Scarface and Willie D were “blindsided” by Bill’s decision, TMZ reported.

Bill apparently plans to launch a solo tour next month, and will donate 10% of the proceeds to pancreatic cancer patients in each city on the trek. Earlier in the month, the 52-year-old rapper revealed that he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic but vowed to continue working. Aside from his reported tour, Bill has a documentary and new music on the way.

Dionne Warwick Clarifies Comments About Beyonce Not Being An Icon

Dionne Warwick is clarifying her comments about why she doesn't think Beyonce is an icon, yet.  The 78-year-old music legend called out Essence magazine after the Bey-related snippet from her interview with the publication went viral  Thursday (May 23).

“It takes a long time to reach and achieve iconic status,” Warwick clarified. “That’s not to say that Beyoncé isn’t well on her way. She is a gifted performer. That was a reach from Essence.”

What I said is in quotes. What @Essence said is not. It takes a long time to reach and achieve iconic status. That’s not to say that Beyoncé isn’t well on her way. She is a gifted performer. That was a reach from Essence. pic.twitter.com/nWlZcrgdqg

In the interview, Warwick proclaimed that there are no new music icons, and that Beyonce has yet to reach the coveted status.

“I don’t know if 10 years from now, if anybody can sing the songs of our babies [artists] today, and that’s not as you guys say ‘throwing shade.’ That’s looking at it with reality,” said Warwick.

The “Walk on By” singer explained that recording artists with at least 20 years in music have to survive a few more decades before they can be considered iconic, Beyonce included.

“Watching her grow has been quite refreshing,” Warwick added. “It’s wonderful to see how she’s been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is…very proud of that, I really am. Now, sustaining and becoming a big icon that Gladys Knight, or Patti LaBelle, or Johnny Mathis, or Frank Sinatra, or Sammy Davis Jr. is? I doubt that, I really do. And I love her to death and can appreciate her talent. But that iconic status that I just mentioned, those four names? [She has] a long read [ahead].”

Although Warwick is a fan of Queen Bey and other “youngsters” in the industry, she thinks that today’s popular artists have a “long way to go” before their music can be considered classic.”
