Reality shows can be very addictive. Even if some shows are train wrecks, you have to keep watching.
Here are new and returning reality shows that qualify as guilty pleasures.
We know you’ll be watching.
‘Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami’
There’s never a lack of reality TV material for the fun, but very dysfunctional Kardashian family.
“Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” features two of the Kardashian sisters and their adventures in South Beach. Round 2 of the girls’ outrageous Florida adventures continue Sundays on the E! network.
This season, Kourtney dukes it out with her baby daddy Scott Disick, the girls pose dressed only in bodypaint for their boutique ad and Khloe gets in trouble at her radio show.
Yeah, you’ll be watching.
Kim Kardashian isn’t frolicking in Miami with her sisters, but she is producing a new reality show for E!
The show’s called “The Spin Crowd” and it will focus on the celebrity PR agency Command PR. These are the folks that have to put the spin on crazy celebs and glitzy events. That makes Kim Kardashian the perfect person to produce this show.
“The Spin Crowd” debuts in August.
‘Top Chef’ and Kathy Griffin
Reality fans are primed for this week’s return of “Top Chef” and Kathy Griffin’s “My Life on the D-List.”
“Top Chef’s” seventh season premieres Wednesdays on Bravo. This season, the chefs will be serving up dishes to Washington, D.C., celebs and dealing with a new judge.
And yes, new chefs Kelly Liken and Kenny Gilbert are from Colorado.
Kathy Griffin kicks off her new season of Bravo mayhem on Tuesday. Last season, the comedian headed into celebrity mode, so she’s starting off this summer with guest star Liza Minnelli.
Minnelli was a hit in “Sex in the City 2,” and she’ll be dishing out acting advice to Griffin on Tuesday.
That should be interesting.
Lindsay Lohan connection
There’s also buzz about the new reality show “Double Exposure.” The program debuts Tuesday on Bravo.
“Double Exposure” follows the lives of celeb photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani — she’s the photo pro romantically linked with Lindsay Lohan.
Speaking of Lohan, the celeb’s mom said Donald Trump wanted her daughter to star in the next “Celebrity Apprentice.”
However, Lohan told the press she wasn’t interested. The only reality show the actress should be considering is “Celebrity Rehab.”
