Britney’s Reality Show? Oh, And The VMA’s.

Popwreck Britney Spears is rumored to be working on a reality tv show. Her bodyguards were caught shooting her every move with professional grade video cameras during her mini-vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hmm. Britney’s gonna probably have to do something a little more interesting than lay around in a bikini for this one to sell.

However, during her vacation this past weekend, Britney was also caught doing the tango with a mysterious, man. Some reports said he was handsome, but Snarkista thinks he has a hairy back problem which makes “handsome” impossible. He’s been identified as Palms Resort and Casino owner George Maloof. Britney was captured in a white bikini showing off her tanned body, flirting, and chatting.

Brit-Brit’s been nominated for Best Female Music Video category at the 2008 MTV VMA awards for “Piece Of Me”. You know, the one that was probably scripted by Adnan Ghalib, where Britney and the decoy Britneys get chased around by the papz, and Britney does the peekaboo with her fists. And they put her derrière in the magazine. Instead of her cooch.

There is buzz that she may performing on the show September 7th. However, MTV hasn’t offered her the stage just yet. A close pal told press, “They are going to leave it up until the week before to decide.” Because they need to check the cheeto belly first, and have wardrobe approval written in stone! Also, Britney will probably have to attend rehearsal this time, unlike her LAST disastrous performance. Crap. Snarkista just had a BAD flashback. Get outta my head!

MTV’S “Exiled” Cast & First Episode Preview

Snarkista told you awhile back about MTV’s upcoming new reality show “Exiled”. The show takes some of the insufferable bratz from “My Super Sweet Sixteen” and dumps them off in third world countries! Good times! The little divas (and one divO) have to work and live with families in countries where many don’t MAKE IT to age 16. The show debut is getting closer, it’s August 25th at 10:30 E.T., so here are the cast bios and a peek at the first episode after the jump!
Alex: An heiress to a chateau in Paris, Alex felt like her reputation was on the line when she threw her Super Sweet 16 party. She treated her “Winter Wonderland” party as a coming out celebration, saying it was time to show everyone that she had turned from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. Alex jetted to Paris to look for the perfect dress, but left empty-handed. Back in the states, she couldn’t wait to go car shopping. But when her dad took her to a dealership, she pouted because his suggestions weren’t the kinds of cars that screamed “heiress.”
Amanda: 2 years ago, Amanda had a Super Sweet 16 party any girl would die for, including a performance by R&B sensation Ciara. Of course, tons of drama went along with the Hawaiian-themed festivities, especially since Amanda acted like a pampered princess the whole time. 2 years later- not much has changed. Amanda is still a spoiled brat. She graduated from high school but still lives at home. She doesn’t work or going to college. In fact, she spends most of her time shopping and going to the beach. Of course, dad still pays her bills.
Ava: She threw an Arabian Nights bash that she called “a major transition from childhood to adulthood.” Ava also tried shopping for the perfect dress in Paris, but decided to get two custom-made in L.A.. She escaped to her dad’s house after her mom canceled her credit card; and ultimately drove away in a Range Rover that her parents told her she would not get. Now a 19 year-old sophomore in college, she’s still driving that “not used” Range Rover, and running up mom and dad’s credit cards.
Bjorn: An outspoken male divo , Bjorn had but one thing on his mind when it came his ultimate Sweet 16: fashion. Bjorn staged a fashion show starring himself, along with a hand-picked selection of his hottest friends on the catwalk. For his red carpet entrance, he wore a custom-designed jacket with “Bjorn” written in rhinestones across the back!

The Hills: MTV’s Sneak Peak

MTV’s released the trailer for “The Hills”. Snarkista isn’t sure if it is clips of plotlines that will really be developed- or the best parts of the season crammed into one trailer. Last season was pretty much a snoozer, and the hint here that the insufferable Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt may break up is just ridiculous! Those two are worth way more together than they are apart, and they aren’t through riding the money train yet. There will be WAY more posed pics and heinous songs from Heidi to endure before the douche-duo parts ways. Also, to Snarkista’s dismay, Spencer seems to be growing something on his face.

No doubt Miley WILL be around in some form or fashion stalking Nick Jonas. Nick, if you’re listening, stay AWAY from the i-phone. Miley doesn’t know how to push DELETE, and there’s no telling WHAT will make it’s way onto the net next!

Rev. Run’s Team Blackout- Sunday Snarktunes

Those of you who keep up with the Rev. Run on MTV’s “Run’s House” know Team Blackout well! JoJo Simmons, Rev’s son, and his longtime BFF’s Zach and Reggie came together as Team Blackout (named after NYC’s 2003 blackout) and have been getting better all the time.

Team Blackout signed with Latchkey Recordings in 2007, and their debut album “Lights Out” is gonna drop on August 19th. They have a fun, fresh sound that makes ya feel good!

Here are some Sunday sounds with a great video to have fun with- Team Blackout with “J-5 on ‘Em!”, and this link to their first single
“Billion Dollar Boyfriend”!

Janet Jackson’s New Reality

Janet Jackson

Fear not the possible actor’s strike, because Janet Jackson is getting into the reality TV business! Janet’s developing a music competition for MTV. No name for the show yet, which has begun casting. Miss Nasty’s gonna “mentor” a group of aspiring singers and dancers. The show will be shot in the coming months as Jackson prepares for her world tour, which begins Sept. 10. Producer Dave Broome says

“It’s really about finding who’s the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher, and we’ll find it from a pool of people who you wouldn’t typically find it from. We’ll go to YMCAs, church groups, local community centers and try to cast the show.”

The show plans to take place in various street locales, rather than on a studio soundstage. Cheaper!! Producers are still working out what the prize – but it could potentially relate to Jackson’s tour. Free backup singers and dancers! Genius!

The project is the latest chapter in what has been a turbulent relationship between the channel and Janet. MTV produced the infamous Super Bowl halftime show that featured Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction.” All is forgiven now, however, as MTV’s trying to run ANYTHING that’s better than the heinous Rock The Cradle. That crapfest had celebuspawn competing American Idol style for $100K and a record deal. Hopefully, Janet can attract some actual talent.
