Yes, we love our fashion and beauty here at The Style and Beauty Doctor, but we also LOVE entertainment. From movies to television we’ll be hashing over reality TV stars, the red carpet, and more and of course we’ll do it in our cleverly witty ways ;) I’m very pleased to bring on our new Entertainment Contributor Jade Banks. Remember when there wasn’t a summer season at all for new shows? Those were dark and bleak times.
Here she gives us her top 7 picks for summer TV shows. Check it out!
It seemed like all of our favorite shows this year left us with unbearable cliff hangers. From wondering who in the world is the naïve little brunette of Olivia Pope’s team of fixers on “Scandal” to holding your breath as Meredith and Christina try to survive in the wilderness after a random plane crash on “Grey’s Anatomy”, I personally don’t know how I’m going to make it until September. I’m happy to report that there are tons of entertaining television shows coming on the boob tube this summer to distract us.
1. True Blood.
Sookie Stackhouse returns as the desire of all vampires and wolves alike in this season of “True Blood”. I cannot wait for the crazy battles, the sexy love scenes, and the wit of my favorite character, Lafayette (Side note: Was anyone else totally UPSET that Lafayette’s boo thang died last season!?). Never seen the show? Think of Twilight with a NC-17 rating…oh yea! The season premieres on Sunday on HBO.
My mom and grandmother used to talk all the time about this show and their love for JR. Who is this JR? Finally we’ll get a taste of the show that was included in Time Magazine’s “100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME.” Tune in June 13th on TNT.
3. SNOOKI and JWOWW.
It’s summer so feel free to turn your brain off and tune into the antics of our favorite ladies of “Jersey Shore”, Snooki and Jwoww. This spinoff follows Jwoww and a pregnant Snooki (let’s all have a moment of silence for this child that will be raised by crazy behind Snooki!) as they take on Atlantic City. The series premieres on June 21st on MTV.
4. Common Law.
Two words…MICHAEL EALY. Enough said (Yes I’m shallow like that. Sue me.)
5. Unnecessary Roughness.
Once again only two words are needed, but I’ll elaborate. The delicious Mechad Brooks (the shallow side of me strikes again) stars in this USA original show and looks sexy doing it. Brooks reprises his role as the self-centered football star TK, whose life is in shambles and has to be worked out by his sassy therapist. Check it out on USA on June 6th.
6. L.A. Hair.
Want the ambiance of a black salon without the day-long appointment? Tune into Kim Kimble’s new show, “L.A. Hair”. The show follows celebrity stylist Kim Kimble and her crazy team of stylists. You can catch the show on Thursdays on WE.
7. Single Ladies.
The exit of Stacy Dash didn’t stop this show. “Single Ladies” is back with a new cast member (Is anyone else seeing how similar Denise Vasi‘s character is to Val in looks and personality?) and all the drama, love, and fashion a woman can find in Atlanta. The show airs on Mondays on VH1.
These are just a few of my picks that I’ll be watching this summer. Let us know what you think.
