The Michael Sam reality show has been indefinitely placed on hold.

The former Missouri defensive end and SEC Defensive Player of the Year became the first openly gay player drafted by the NFL this month.

A few days ago, he announced that he had signed on for a series with OWN that would chronicle his journey to making the team.

It was a move met with criticism by those who cited Sam himself as saying he wanted to be known as just a football player, not a gay football player - and how many seventh round draft picks star in reality shows?

Now, following an admission by the St. Louis Rams that they were unaware of Sam’s deal with OWN prior to choosing him and were afraid he could become a "distraction," Sam has pulled out of the series.

From Lindsay Lohan to... Michael Sam?

Let no one accuse Oprah Winfrey's struggling television network of not being diverse.

OWN announced today that that it will air a series which chronicles Sam’s journey as the first openly gay player in the NFL, with a press release describing the program as "a deeply personal, up-close look at the remarkable man at the center of this groundbreaking moment in professional sports."

Sam was drafted in the 7th round of last week's NFL draft and will head this summer to the St. Louis Rams training camp.

He still must make the 53-man roster this fall.

It features past regulars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, along with newcomers Teresa Aprea, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese.

Oh, and Dina Manzo is also on her way back to the franchise that made her famous, announcing her return in the following trailer as only she can:

The bitch is back and you can kiss my ass.

Over the course of the new season, which premieres June 6, look for marriage strife to take center stage for more many of the women, while Teresa's legal troubles send shockwaves through the series.

There have been ups (Kim Kardashian gives birth!) and downs (Kris and Bruce Jenner separate), but the "best is yet to come" for the First Family of Reality Television.

So teases a new E! trailer for Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9, which returns with fresh episodes on Sunday, June 8.

"This year has been the best and the worst year,” the trailer also states, showing us scenes of an exasperated Bruce, along with his three step-daughters at a photo shoot and some hijinx in the pool.

Is LeAnn Rimes' new VH1 show with Eddie Cibrian the worst thing in the history of time? Or at least the worst reality show idea to actually make it to air in years?

A strong case could be made for both arguments.

Back when a LeAnn Rimes-Eddie Cibrian reality show was first talked about, we rolled our eyes, thinking this couldn't possibly be a thing that appears on TV.

We were wrong. See LeAnn & Eddie clip below:

As reality shows go, you might wanna stick with the old Bravo standbys, or try out I Wanna Marry Harry, which is at least sort of original and hilarious.

This? This is just one awkward hot mess of a show.

In an extended sneak peek that could cause Brandi Glanville to have a nervous breakdown, fans (if they have any) see LeAnn and Eddie discuss kids.

The rundown, as concisely as we can sum it up:

Kyle Chrisley is a wanted man.

The 23-year old is the son of Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley and appeared sporadically on the first season of this USA Network reality show.

He's accused of assaulting the mother of his child.

"Need Help to Locate Criminal Domestic Violence Suspect," says a post on the South Carolina police department's Facebook page this week, calling on the "public’s assistance in locating Kyle Hayden Chrisley (aka Kyle Crisley)."

On May 27, Fox will either take the reality TV genre to new heights or new depths, depending on your perspective.

The network has released an extended trailer for I Wanna Marry Harry, which is a complete knock-off of The Bachelor, with one small exception:

The 12 women vying for the star's heart all believe him to be Prince Harry. Yes, THE Prince Harry.

Harry (the real one) just split from Cressida Bonas, which of course means nothing to the girls believing this actor is the prince, but is still amazingly timed.

In the above trailer, we meet each suitor (one is actually studying cellular biology), along with Kingsley the Butler and, of course, Matt Hicks, the Harry lookalike running the long con.

Will this fairytale journey ends in tears or triumph?

The TV Guide Channel hopes it has found the right stuff for a hit reality show.

Insiders have confirmed that an eight-episode series based around New Kids on the Block singing on a cruise ship will soon premiere on this network.

Yes, New Kids on the Block on a cruise ship.

The series will be titled Rock This Boat: NKOTB and it will center on this boy band (can we still call them that?) hanging out at sea with some of their most hardcore fans.

It's always sort of odd when reality TV show seasons are out of sync with real life, but that's what's happening on The Real Housewives of Orange County!

It's Thanksgiving, Vicki Gunvalson!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 3 picked up right where the previous week left off: that really, really awkward dinner party at Shannon and David's that got even more awkward as the meal courses progressed.

Somewhere between the courses, Shannon got a wee bit intoxicated, which seems to be her thing. David, who has a "dry sense of humor," cracked very unfunny to Shannon jokes and Shannon decided to snap at her husband in front of their guests in the middle of dinner.

And then there was that whole thing with Heather and Vicki and Tamra and the blonde BFFs ganging up on the brunette in the room to prevent her from talking. Heather wasn't pleased. Her poker face is that bad.

Oh yes, 'twas an awkward dinner indeed.

True Tori is scoring big ratings for Lifetime, and viewers have been captivated by the dramatic attempts of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott to save their troubled marriage.

However, holes in the couple's story have led many to wonder if Tori and Dean faked his affair in order to secure a reality show deal.

Tori and Dean Are Broke!
Tori and Dean are so broke, he can't even afford a vasectomy supposedly. Guess that's why they keep having kids.

Some have suggested they even went so far as to create a phony mistress with the curious name of Emily Goodhand. 

Go ahead and do a Google image search for Emily Goodhand photos.

You'll find lots of Tori and Dean tabloid covers, but not a single pic of anyone who's confirmed to be Dean's cheating partner.
