This week Howard Stern gave acts an "X" rating on America's Got Talent, Khloe and Lamar wondered about who's truly a Kardashian, and Joe was a terrible person on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Find out the stunning reality TV moments you might have missed with this week's Reality Recap.
Despite Stern Warnings, Howard Rocks America's Got Talent
Howard Stern made his heavily hyped debut as America's Got Talent's newest judge. Some were worried the shock jock would bring about the show's downfall. Would he swear more than a drunk Nicolas Cage? Will the audience spontaneously chant "Baba Booey!" every five seconds?
All fears were dispelled during the show's premier. Howard seamlessly fell in step with fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandell, axing atrocious acts and applauding awesome auditions. Stern's media - savvy and immediately adaptation to his new role may make this the best season of America's Got Talent yet.
Khloe's Kardashianhood Gets Questioned on Khloe and Lamar
Things didn't get testy on Khloe and Lamar's season finale. After Khloe's informed tabloids ran stories stating she's not completely blood related to sisters Kim and Kourtney pressure mounts for her to get DNA testing done to disprove the rumor. After stating she's comfortable knowing in her heart she's a Kardashian, she refuses the test.
Good for her, too. At this point, "Kardashian" isn't just a family name. It's a brand, a business. Anyone can buy clothes to look like a Kardashian, perfume and smell all Kardashian-y, or Kardashian Glamour Tan and have the same off - putting skin tone the family shares. Who cares if she's fully blood related? Part of the Kardashian's appeal is anyone can shop their way into becoming a Kardashian themselves ... minus the gazillions of dollars and reality shows about them.
Real Housewives of New Jersey's Joe is a Bad Person and He Should Feel Bad
Joe's hands-down the least likeable person on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. When Kathy throws a pool party, Joe mistakes the get together for a drunken sailor's convention and swears at everyone. When Richie suggests Joe seek therapy, he responds "old-school Italians don't get therapy."
I've seen The Godfather trilogy, naturally making me an expert in old-school Italianhood. Know what's important to them other than dodging psychoanalysis? Family. Meaning they don't insult their sisters. Rather than hide from his problems, he should seriously seek help. At this point thought I hate him so much I'd rather see Joe getting a lobotomy than on a therapist's couch.
That wraps up this week's reality recap. What were your favorite moments, and which shows got a little too real? What programs do you want to see covered next week? Comment and let us know!
