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!

Erykah Badu Denies Producers Contacted Her For 'Surviving R. Kelly'

Erykah Badu is hitting back against dream hampton after she claimed that producers of Surviving R. Kelly contacted the singer to appear in the Lifetime docuseries. Badu claims that she was never contacted, and would like hampton to provide the receipts or apologize.

It all started when a fan pointed out that Badu and R. Kelly worked with one another years ago, which is why she allegedly chose not to be apart of the docuseries. Erykah rejected that comment, stating that she had never worked with him on music or declined to appear in the documentary.

Hampton stepped in by claiming that a producer attempted to contact Badu, but did not receive a response. "I asked Producer T. Farris to contact @fatbellybella to be in doc because I wanted clarity on two things: 1) a quote attributed to her, 'No one has done more for Black people than R. Kelly' & 2) what she was thinking when she called him her "brother" at Soul Train Awards," dream tweeted.

Badu quickly responded: No ma’am. I WAS NOT EVER contacted by anyone to be in [email protected] You know that’s not true. I wasn’t a necessary component. You had all the right people, the ones close to the situation...But for now, produce this “producer’s” request or... APOLOGIZE. It’s simple."

Badu and hampton's latest back and forth comes only days after the neo-soul artist was criticized for seemingly defending R. Kelly amid his sexual abuse allegations at a concert in Chicago. She later clarified her remarks about the disgraced singer, saying that she did not approve of his actions, but believed he was deserving of love and assistance.

Check out Badu and hampton's exchange below.

Judge Removes Tekashi 6ix9ine's Lawyer From Racketeering Case

Tekashi 6ix9ine is in need of new legal representation. A judge has reportedly removed one of 6ix9ine's lawyers from his racketeering case ahead of his trial, XXL reports. The decision was made during a pre-trial conference on Tuesday (Jan. 22).

The presiding Judge Paul A. Engelmayer ruled that the 6ix9ine's lawyer, Lance Lazarro, would have to be removed from the case due to a potential conflict of interest. Lazarro reportedly represented Tekashi's co-defendants, Faheem "Crippy" Walter and Kifano "Shotti" Jordan before representing 6ix9ine in his racketeering case.

During the conference, Engelmayer stated that he was upset that Lazarro had not disclosed his relationship with the co-defendants previously. Lazarro reportedly represented Walter for a gang assault charge in Oct. 2018 and Jordan for numerous charges in 2009 and 2015. He explained that he didn't think the matter was important to mention.  Judge Engelmayer responded by noting that it wasn't the attorney's place to determine whether his previous work was significant.

Lazzaro will not be able to act as Tekashi's lawyer until he sends letters detailing the extent of his relationships with Walter and Jordan. If the judge finds no conflict of interest, Lazarro will be able to return as an acting attorney for Tekashi. Dawn Florio will continue as part of Tekashi's legal team.

As previously reported, the "Stoopid" artist, Walter, and Jordan are awaiting trial for a racketeering case. Tekashi pleaded not guilty to the federal charges in Nov. 2018. If convicted, he could face a life sentence in prison. His trial date is slated to begin on Sept. 4.

Drake And Odell Backham Jr. Sued For Orchestrating Violent Attack On Man

Drake and NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. are reportedly being sued for allegedly orchestrating a violent attack on a man in a West Hollywood club, TMZ reports. According to court docs obtained by the celeb site, Bennett Sipes is accusing Drake and Beckham of telling their entourage to beat him up after a brief confrontation.

Sipes claims the incident occurred in the VIP section of the Delilah nightclub after he began to argue with Drizzy, Beckham, Kourtney Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Younes Benjima, and the rest of their crew. A source close to the incident claims Sipes was "talking smack" at the time. When he attempted to exit the area, Sipes alleges that Drake gave him the "cut throat" gesture.

When the victim entered the bathroom, he was attack by Benjima and Drake and Beckham's friends. The whole fight was caught on video, showing Benjima throwing the first punch at Sipes. Drake and OBJ are also seen on camera watching from a distance.

Sipes reportedly filed a police report following the incident, but dropped it shortly after. He is suing OBJ, Drake, Delilah and others other for an undisclosed amount.
