Dance Moms is set to return to Lifetime’s airwaves for Season 5, and it will reportedly take place not in its star's native Pennsylvania, but under the lights of Hollywood.

Following last night's Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 31, titled "Hollywood Here We Come, Part 1," rumors and speculation began to arise as to the show's future.

Season 5 will apparently begin at the Sheer Talent special edition competition in Niagara Falls, N.Y., October 11, and it won't be based out of Pittsburgh.

There are several signs the team is headed for Hollywood, not the least of which being the season finale title (part two has no confirmed air date yet).

Also, while attending her student Maddie Zieger's Dancing With the Stars performance in L.A., Abby Lee Miller dropped a big hint on her Instagram.

On tonight's episode of VH1's Couples Therapy, the housemates will learn that cast member and former Big Brother champion Dick Donato is HIV positive.

Donato says that after keeping his diagnosis a secret for three years, he's decided to go public so that he might use his fame to bring attention to the crippling illness and the difficulty that many patients have with affording treatment.

Donato appeared on TMZ Live today, where he opened up to the site about the hardship of paying for medication that keeps him alive:

"The drugs are extremely expensive," Donato tells Harvey Levin.

"This puts a heroin or cocaine addict to shame. It's like a 110, or 130 dollars a pill. And you cannot miss one dose ... that's when you develop full-blown AIDS, and there is no cure for that."

Donato goes on to say that he was "wiped out" by the cost of treatment and only once he was completely broke was he able to qualify for Medicaid.

(The red-haired reality star specifies that he was diagnosed before the availability of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.)

Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 1 premieres Friday on WeTV. When it does, all will be revealed about Hank Baskett's alleged affair with a transsexual.

Did he really enjoy some mutual hand relief with Ava London? That's the question many fans are asking, as this all seems too scripted and ridiculous.

Then again, would he (and she/he) agree to fabricate THAT for the sake of ratings? It certainly doesn't look like Kendra's tears are fake right here ....

Despite the intense media coverage of Baskett's alleged ways, Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 1 will be our first look at how Wilkinson responded.

She's tried her best to keep quiet about the situation, partially because there are the duo's small children involved, but also because, well ... ratings!

Would you watch Kendra On Top online if she gave away the plot beforehand? Okay, maybe, since we know a good deal of what went down.

Still, keeping some of the derails about herself, Hank and Ava London, shrouded in mystery has helped build the hype around the reality show's return.

The Bachelor stars and embattled lovers Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have a breakdown, but later a breakthrough, on Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4.

Watch her get emotional in this talk with Dr. Jenn Berman as she finally admits why she has her guard up, and what's been hanging over her head for months ...

If you watched The Bachelor, you have to kinda sorta feel bad for Nikki Ferrell, even though she is far from perfect and dating Juan Pablo by choice.

Watching him give her the final rose, but no engagement ring or even the words “I love you,” rubbed many viewers the wrong way earlier this year.

Equally bizarre? Her willingness to defend him and even emulate her boyfriend's bitterness toward the reality show they signed up for in the first place.

Clearly, the pediatric nurse from Kansas City isn't truly happy with the way things are going with El Bachelor, and Dr. Jenn finally got that out of her.

Dance Moms: Abby's Studio Rescue Season 1 Episode 5 saw Abby travel to this week, and proved to viewers why you should never mix business and family.

Eclipse studio owner Michelle lacks the business acumen to keep her operation afloat. Basically she's running a charity, and it is headed downhill.

One day, she plans on giving her business to all three of her daughters, though one of them, the youngest, Kennedy, seems to be the priorities here.

Of course, Kennedy's own priorities are different, and much of Abby's Studio Rescue Season 1 Episode 5 is devoted to highlighting the duo's differences.

What the daughter would like is to break into ballet, but she feels she can't tell her mom this because Michelle still has that Dance Moms mentality.

No wonder this business is struggling just to tread water lately.

Big Brother legend Dick Donato will make a surprising reveal about himself on VH1's Couples Therapy tonight, and no one saw coming: He's HIV positive.

The reality TV villain, who often goes by the nickname "Evel Dick," is on the VH1 show with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer.

On Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4, he reveals one of the biggest issues in his relationship, and life, with the show's therapist, Dr. Jenn Berman.

In an upcoming episode, he'll also share this with the rest of the cast members, which include The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell.

Just as surprising as the diagnosis itself was the fact that Dick was competing on Season 13 of Big Brother when producers found this out first.

"They told me that something was wrong with my blood test," he says, noting that constants submit to all kids of testing. "They had done two HIV tests."

On 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 9, the second installment of TLC show Tuesday night, the family geared up for Jill's wedding in a number of ways.

When you've got 19 kids, you have a lot of tasks, but also a lot of warm bodies to help with them. Of course, that assumes they can offer actual help.

After Jill Duggar and company shopped for a vintage wedding dress and bridesmaids' dresses, 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 9 kept at it.

This time, they needed shoes to complete their modest, but beautiful ensembles.

“Jill’s been a really good bride,” Jill’s sister Jana Duggar, who was selected as the Maid of Honor for her wedding to Derick Dillard, said of the non-Bridezilla.

“Yeah, she has like what she wants, and she just kind of does it, and it works out,” added another one of Jill's sisters and bridesmaids, Joy-Anna Duggar.

Jinger Duggar (that's just cheating when you start using hyphens and misspelling words, BTW) lends a hand with photography, taking snaps of Derick and Jill.

In the least surprising television development of the week, NCIS: New Orleans Season 1 Episode 2 kicked off with a scene inside a jazz club.

Viewers watched as a young lieutenant took in some local music, though but he seemed clearly ill and began stumbling around before ending up outside.

He staggered to the street and then got killed by a cab, prompting Agent Pride and his team to be called in because the victim was Navy Lt. Louis Collier, an office on leave.

"Why did the sailor cross the road?" asked Pride, as Loretta is unable to determine the officer's state at the scene. Aside, you know, from the fact that he was dead.

Tuesday evening's Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 31 marked the beginning of Nationals, and things were predictably intense for Abby Lee & Co. on Lifetime.

The Abby Lee Dance Company and the Candy Apples Dance Studio both faced competition - and stalkers - that made the trip to the West Coast challenging.

The upside of heading to La-La Land for Abby? A possible ALDC expansion.

The downside? Former Dance Moms troublemaker Jeanette showed up!

Vowing revenge on the ALDC as she stalked the team 2,500 miles from its Pennsylvania home base, this felt like a classic ruse to bring in ratings for Lifetime.

If you watch TV online - specifically reality TV - you know you need a good villain and an unpredictable source of conflict to really invest people in the plot.

Often, it must be manufactured.
