Reality TV whores can thank their lucky stars.

This week, a whole new slate of reality TV shows were trotted out on multiple networks.

There’s High School Reunion on TV Land. If you haven’t seen the commercials, it’s about a group of people who graduated in 1987. They act very high school. Very.

I’m not too sure about The Real Housewives of New York City. Cameras peek into the daily lives of five wealthy, powerful Manhattan housewives as they meet with private chefs and au pairs. It might be worth checking out for a few minutes, just to see how the other half lives. It hasn’t gotten the best reviews, though.

Then there’s The Secret Life of a Soccer Mom. Full-time homemakers finally get to try their hand at the careers they passed on to raise their children. Of course, they do it behind their families’ backs, so it’s got a touch of deception to it … which should bode well for the season finale, when they come clean to their loved ones.

Classy guy Kid Rock appeared in court Monday on charges related to an incident where he allegedly attacked someone. He is accused of punching and kicking someone. Oh, and hitting him with a chair. The question is, who cares about Kid Rock?

J-Lo has released the names of her newborn twins: Emma and Max. Thank God we know, cause who wasn’t losing sleep over that? Although, I must say, that’s so … ordinary.

Oprah once again has been taken by a fake memoir. This time, it was a gangland account supposedly written by a teenaged gang-banger. Nope. Just written by a talented writer. Speaking of which, if you haven’t read James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces, do so.

By now, you’ve probably heard about the American Idol flesh scandal. Photos of one of the contestants, David Hernandez, have surfaced. They depict him topless, working at a gay club. According to sources, he also stripped. Completely. And did lap dances. For men. Woo-hoo.

The real question is, why doesn’t Akron have a club like this, for women? It sounds like a money-maker.

Now, onto Hillary Clinton news. After her near-meltdown during last week’s debate in which she referred to an SNL skit, she did the right thing and appeared on SNL. She followed yet another bit poking fun at the media love affair with Barack Obama.

Clinton killed. She poked fun at herself and came across much better than she did during the debate. And, when Amy Poehler – whose impression of Clinton is quite good, by the way – began cackling like a hyena … even Clinton had to laugh.

And, apparently, it worked.
