Model Squad (E!)


Model Squad (E!) – Premieres 12th February

Reality show that follows nine models as they go about modelling stuff, going to castings to model stuff, then attend after shows where the meet folks that could progress their career modelling things.

During the show each of the models talk about how they got into the business and how they see their career developing in the future. Then as the programme shows them getting up to their daily business it’s interspersed with small segments where one of the models gives a beauty tip or fashion pointers.

Weirdly for a reality show there was no arguing or near fisticuffs moments, but along with that there was nothing else going on either. It was all very boring.



Citizen Rose (E!)


Citizen Rose (E!) – Premieres 30th January 

A reality docu-series that follows Rose McGowan as she works on highlighting the sexual abuse that occurs within Hollywood, and her campaign to help women who have been victims of sexual abuse.

The show begins with Rose briefly talking about her childhood and the cult she was born into, then going through the timeline of her initial meeting with Harvey Weinstein and when he assaulted her. The programme then follows Rose attends a support meeting and making a personal appearances as a guest speaker at conventions. She then explains how her abuse allegations were covered up and the extent of how Weinstein would go to discredit her. Which culminated in her having a warrant put out against her for fabricated offences.

As well as going into her battle against Weinstein and forming her own movement, the programme follows Rose as she meets up with friend and family as she tries to get some rest bite from legal battles she’s dealing with.

As docu-series go it’s an interesting watch to see the extent of the cover-up and how far it went with the subterfuge. 


WAGs: Atlanta (E!)


WAGs: Atlanta (E!) – Premieres 3rd January

“Yay” the third instalment of WAGS is here. And just like the versions before it this follows a selection of Atlanta based wives and girlfriends of sports stars of varying fame.

The show does the usual of following them as they get up to their daily goings on, where they do stuff with their partners, meeting up with friends who have a history of trying to get into the WAG group, and organising get togethers where everyone involved meets up.

It’s a completely run of the mill reality show, but does have a surprising lack of bitching and fighting. It’s still an absolute grind to get through.



The Platinum Life (E!)


The Platinum Life (E!) – Premieres 15th October – Cancelled

Following the scripted reality of the WAGs of rappers and music producers who live in Florida who between balancing their careers and relationships, tell the camera how lavish their life is.

So after going through what they do for a job and how in love they are, the women all meet up for a jaunt where one will try to upstage the rest, or dig up past indiscretions so the reality show shouting and arguing quota can be checked off.

It’s a typical reality show, and unsurprisingly tedious to watch.



Life of Kylie (E!)


Life of Kylie (E!) – Premieres 6th August

Another unwatchable Kardashian spinoff appears, this time a film crew follows Kylie Jenner about as she questions what she actually does. It’s a bleak look into the life of a woman with apparently one friend and a group of paid assistants not doing much bar filming mundanity for Instagram.

She does however answer the call from a lads mother to be his prom date, pretty much leading Kylie to constantly repeat how she’s never been to one and how it’s something that no one should go through. So this slowly becomes all about her attending her first prom with the lad she’s “helping” slowly getting pushed further into the background.

It’s a horrifically shit bit of TV.



What Happens At The Abbey (E!)


What Happens At The Abbey (E!) – Premieres 14th May

Unsurprisingly for a show on E! this is yet another reality programme, where this time they follow the employees of The Abbey nightclub.

After going through each of the people involved where they talk about what they do in the club and their plans to get famous. It then descends into a nightclub version of Hollywood Cycle and Work Out New York, where everything generally involves around them getting drunk out of work hours and bitching about each other.

It’s all as tedious as you’d imagine it would be.



Second Wives Club (E!)


Second Wives Club (E!) – Premieres 4th May

A show that highlights the plights endured by a group of women either married or dating older gents who have been married before. This is a reality show where in between day drinking and not doing much the women either act really pally with each other or have the usual slanging matches in filled restaurants.

It’s a by-the-numbers piece of scripted reality along the lines of WAGS and The Real Housewives that is utterly crap to watch.
