Bravo has four new reality shows in the pipeline! Let’s take a look at their descriptions and see if anything looks watchable.
“#obsessed” (working title)
Hosted by internet sensations the SRSLY girls, Danielle Gibson and Alexandra Fiber, “#obsessed” is a comedic “let’s talk about it” round-up featuring two best friends and obsessionados who are totally up to speed on the latest trends from the most eccentric health crazes like ‘oil pulling’ to the newest foodie renaissance of toast, yes, toast. So whether you want to impress your friends at a party this weekend or look hip in front of your kids at the dinner table, “#obsessed” is your go-to guide for everything you need to know, want to buy and wish you had.
Is it me or does this sound nearly as stupid as the people’s couch? I really don’t want to see two chicks sitting around talking about oil pulling. That’s a hygiene regime I could live without discussing.
“Apres Ski” working title)
Luxury and world-class ski resorts attract instructors from all over the world vying for jobs on the mountain to showcase their expertise while delivering the premiere experience to their demanding clientele. It’s the ultimate synthesis of business and pleasure for the staff, as they ski by day and lodge together by night. From fresh tracks to Apres Ski off the slopes, you can be sure that instructors and guests alike seek thrills both on and off the mountain.
I’m not sure we have enough information on this one. Maybe hunky ski instructors hooking up would be interesting. But I’m not overly optimistic.
“High Stakes Style” (working title)
Following fashion inventor and home shopping superstar Shannon Mattingly, “High Stakes Style” features Shannon and her team as she looks to invest in unique one-of-a-kind beauty and style solutions. The smash success of Shannon’s own creation, “Showstoppers,” a double stick designer tape, launched her fabulous lifestyle and career. With her direct experience, abounding wherewithal and an equally exuberant opinion to match, Shannon will help budding entrepreneurs kick start their beauty and fashion businesses while also turning a pretty profit.
So it’s Shark Tank with the “inventor” of double sided sticky tape. Um….
“Family Love” (working title)
This project follows Lisa Galos and her totally unconventional family of matchmakers, including her beautiful single daughter, gay son, ex-husband, and even her ex-husband’s former mistress. If anyone understands the phrase, “the heart wants what the heart wants,” it’s this family that uses everyone’s unique skills to set up the hottest singles in Chicago.
It’s no surprise that Patti Stanger is executive producing this show. That alone gives me pause. So it’s basically Millionaire Matchmaker in the Midwest. Meh.
