ABC Announces Bachelor In Paradise Cast

In: Donovan, TV Shows
bachelor-in-paradise-cast

After three seasons of Bachelor Pad, ABC took a break last year but vowed to return. Somewhat true to their word, the network is offering another series from the Bachelor franchise. But this time, they’re sending Bachelor and Bachelorette rejects to an isolated island. I’m sensing Temptation Island but without any committed couples. Here’s the official description.

Some of The Bachelor’s biggest stars and villains are back. They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and onBachelor in Paradise they’ll get a second chance to find their soul mates. Contestants will live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak.

Earlier today, the network announced most of the cast starring on Bachelor In Paradise. Why only most? Reportedly, three of the men appearing on the show are currently on The Bachelorette vying for Andi Dorfmann’s heart. Once they’re eliminated, ABC will officially announce their participation. Check out the revealed cast below.

rising-star-voting

Lord knows the world doesn’t need another reality singing competition. However, I’m willing to give Rising Star a shot for a few reasons. Firstly, not that I’m a huge Kesha fan, but I’m rooting for a comeback by the “Tik Tok” singer after her rehab stint. Secondly, I want to see how this whole live voting works and more importantly, how it incorporates the West coast. Lastly, I want to see that damn wall rise up.

ABC has long been touting the big twist that everything is live. No results show, no waiting, no judges making the decisions. Home viewers have full control and will instantly advance contestants via voting through the show’s app. Kesha, Ludacris, Brad Paisley and host Josh Groban explain it all in a new promo for Rising Star. Give it a view below.

andy-cohen-i-slept-with-a-celebrity

This has the potential to be the guiltiest pleasure of all-time or the most heinous trainwreck ever. My imaginary silver fox boyfriend Andy Cohen is reportedly shopping around a new reality show where ‘normal’ folks talk about their celebrity walk of shame.

Aptly titled I Slept With a Celebrity, each episode of the unscripted show will feature two guests “dishing about how their walk with fame led to a walk of shame, describing where they met, where they went and what they wore — or didn’t,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cohen will executive produce the show. NBCUniversal-owned cable networks have the first right of refusal under his recent development deal. I wonder if Cohen would allow any of his non-famous suitors to appear on the show.

Does this show interest you? Why or why not? Sound off below.

josh-hartnett-gay-kiss

Are you watching Penny Dreadful? If not, you really should. It’s Showtime’s new psychological thriller that weaves classic horror origin stories such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula. If that doesn’t pique your interest perhaps Josh Hartnett can change your mind.

The 35-year-old actor showed off his bare butt on the premiere and on the most recent episode, dude went all Brokeback. Josh shares a lustful kiss with Reeve Carney who plays Dorian Gray. Here’s Buddy TV’s recap of the events leading up to the scene.

Dorian takes [Ethan] back to his place saying how sorry he is and tries lightening the mood with talk about cologne. It’s weird and intimate at the same time. Even the way he deposits sugar cubes in a drink says seduction…

Dorian decides to play a little mood music and spins some Sade, I mean Wagner. I blinked and Ethan rushes to Dorian, kissing him full on the mouth. This may have been the what the hell moment of the century. They get naked and go at it full Brokeback style. What?

The Arsenio Hall Show Canceled (Again)

Well that was a short-lived comeback. 19 years after his groundbreaking original show ended in 1994 after a five year run, Arsenio Hall finds himself in familiar territory.

Despite receiving a renewal earlier this year, The Arsenio Hall Show got the axe after one season. To be fair, the new incarnation wasn’t nearly as good as the original. Just like Ricki Lake, trying to recreate the magic is almost impossible. Her return to daytime also lasted one season.

“Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. “Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

Back in February, Jay Leno made a surprise appearance on Hall’s show to break news that Arsenio’s show had been renewed. This just weeks after Leno himself said farewell to The Tonight Show (for a second time). Poor Hall. Must suck to have producers reneged on an earlier commitment.

Prep yourself everyone. Tyra Banks is getting back into the daytime talk show game. The 40-year-old tour-de-force is executive producing a new lifestyle show that will launch next year. She’ll also step in front of the camera and host the yet-untitled show which will explore topics such as fashion, beauty, entertaining and individual enterprise.

“With an extraordinary social media following and legions of fans built over her years on television, Tyra is more relevant than ever,” said Lisa Hackner, executive vp of daytime and syndicated programming, ABC Entertainment Group. “She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor, and the practical information the daytime audience craves.”

As most of you know this will be Banks’ second time hosting a talk show. The Tyra Banks Show, which ran from 2005-10 earned an Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Informative. This new show is on the heels of another recently announced project.

She’s teaming up with Carmen Carrera for TransAmerica on VH1. In August, Tyra returns for the 21th Cycle of America’s Next Top Model. Read what the former Victoria’s Secret Angel has to say about her new gig below.

hbo-open-city-adam-shankman

Adam Shankman is heading to the 1960s once again. The 49-year-old director first visited that decade for the musical Hairspray. This time, his time travels take a more serious turn.

Hollywood Reporter reports HBO picked up a script titled Open City from Shankman and writer David Kajganich about gay rights during the 1960s cultural revolution. With Looking, Behind the Candelabra and The Normal Heart under the network’s belt already, HBO is quickly becoming the unofficial gay network.

Ronnie Lorenzo, one of the original owners of the Stonewall Inn, will serve as a consulting producer. As any self-respecting gay individual knows, the Stonewall Riots in 1969 is considered the birth of the gay rights movement in the United States.

laverne-cox-time-magazine

When TIME’s recent annual list of the 100 most influential people failed to include Laverne Cox despite having considerable support on the publication’s people reader’s poll, it immediately prompted a backlash. Not surprisingly, a social media campaign emerged using the hashtag #whereisLaverneCox. Fast forward a couple of months later and Cox receives her own solo cover and on her birthday to boot. Happy Birthday guuuuurrrrl.

The Orange Is The New Black actress is front and center for the publication’s “The Transgender Tipping Point” piece. The cover story “examines the radical rise in awareness of transgender Americans and how this movement is reshaping our definitions of gender.” In the accompanying interview, Laverne talks about her childhood suicide attempt and how she feels people’s attitudes toward the transgender community have changed.

On When She First Felt She Might Be Transgendered

“I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.”
