Nick & Drew Lachey Get Their Own Reality Show on A&E

In a plot that sounds oddly familiar, A&E announced today that it had greenlighted a series that follows boy band members and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, of 98 Degrees, as they open a bar in their hometown of Cincinatti, OH.   Why mess with a formula that works? The show will premiere on A&E in 2015, and filming is already underway.

Both Nick and Drew are no strangers to reality TV.  Nick was a pioneer in the celeb-reality genre, staring in MTV’s “Newlyweds” back in 2003.  Drew was the champion of the second season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” and returned for their all-star season in 2012.

We’ll definitely be tuning in.

Wahlburgers Season 2 Premieres Tonight on A&E!

We will only watch reality shows that star current or former boy band members, and this series certainly fits the bill.  The show follows the adventures of the Wahlberg family business, Wahlburgers, run by brothers Donnie, Mark and Paul.  And we can’t forget the original entourage – the real Johnny Drama and Nacho.

Watch the trailer for season 2 below!

Donnie is one of our favorite boy banders, and we love his wisecracks.    And did you ever hear of the time he saved Marky Mark from two guys that jumped him in a bar?  Surely you’ve heard the Michael Jackson jacket story.   We can’t wait to see more of the Wahlberg family adventures, and hopefully some more cameos from the rest of the New Kids!

Tune into A&E at 10:00PM to watch the premiere!

Backstreet Boys Wrap Up In A World Like This Tour at Jones Beach: What’s Next?

Last night marked the last date on the North American leg of Backstreet Boys’ In A World Like Tour.  The tour, which started last summer in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary, has ended up being the longest in BSB history.  As they said to the packed crowd at Jones Beach, this tour surprised their agents, critics and even them:  it’s amazing to see how much love and support they still have after all these years!  They played all of their hits, as well as tracks off of their new album, “In A World Like This,” as the audience partied like it was 1999.  A Backstreet Boys concert is like one giant singalong/dance party, with 15,000 of your closest friends.

About halfway through the concert, it sunk in that we wouldn’t be seeing the BSB on tour for a while.  But then we realized us Backstreet fan girls have a lot of other things to look forward to this year!

Backstreet Boys:  The Movie
A documentary on the BSB, filmed mostly last year during their 20th anniversary “reunion,” was announced last year, and we are still impatiently waiting for a release date!  The trailer for the movie has been shown during the IAWLT tour since last summer.  Now that this leg of the tour is over, we are hoping we will finally get a release date!   And an excuse to sing and dance in the movie theater.

Nick and Knight Album and Tour!
Nick Carter is so much fun to watch on stage, because he just brings his A-game each and every night.  He tends to do his own choreography, and is moving non-stop on stage.  You can see the pure joy he has in performing.  He’s teaming up with NKOTB’s Jordan Knight for an album and tour this fall, titled Nick & Knight!  Jordan also BRINGS IT each night on stage, so we cannot WAIT to see what these two will be up to on tour.  It’s going to be amazing.

“I Heart Nick Carter”
This isn’t Nick’s first foray into the world of reality TV (House of Carters anyone?), but this time around the show focus on Nick’s life with his new bride, Lauren Kitt, rather than Carter family drama.  We will only watch reality shows that star current or former boy band members, so obviously we have already been counting down to the show’s premiere!  Watch the first look below!   “I Heart Nick Carter” premieres on September 10th at 10pm on Vh1!

Stay tuned for updates on the rest of Backstreet’s  upcoming projects!  Be sure to follow Backstreet Boys & Secret Fangirls on Twitter for more updates!

Boyz II Men to Perform on “FOX & Friends” All American Summer Concert Series June 20th!

Calling all 90s fangirls!  You’re going to want to tune into “FOX & Friends” this Friday morning, June 20th, because Boyz II Men are performing as part of their All American Summer Concert Series!  Or if you’re in NYC, head over to the Fox News Channel Plaza, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, by 7AM to watch the show in person!

Boyz II Men will perform some of their classic hits, as well as songs off of their upcoming album, “Collide.”  We’re hoping they do a little East Coast swag and play “Motown Philly” and of course, “End of the Road!”    We saw Boyz  II Men on The Package Tour with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees last summer, and after all this time they’ve still got the right stuff.  (Yes we’re mixing boy band analogies.  It’s our blog).

Cassadee Pope To Perform on Fox & Friends “All-American Concert Series”

Pretty Little Liars Summer Premiere is Tonight!

One of our favorite things about summer is ABC Family’s lineup!  This of course includes the return of “Pretty Little Liars” tonight!   But as much as we love this show, we’re often frustrated by the amount of questions that go unanswered.  Here’s what we’ve been dying to know since that crazy cliffhanger in March!  Let’s see how many are answered this season…

1.  Is Mr. Fitz (our favorite character) alive?  We are going to go with yes, since the PLL account posted a picture of Fitzy on their Twitter page.  BUT he could always be filming a flashback, and you never know with this show!  We’re hoping he’s alive, but even more than that we’re hoping this isn’t dragged out for more than the first 5 minutes of the premiere (It will be).

2.  Speaking of Fitz, is he really evil?  We’ve been asking this question since last year, so we think it’s about time we got some REAL answers here.   (We so don’t buy that whole “writing a detective novel story.”)  We’ve always thought something HAD to be wrong with him, and as we found out he was very creepily involved with Allison (boardshorts!)  But we need more answers!   And more Fitzy screen time!

3.  Who will be the resident hot new guy?  There is one every season, and we’re looking forward to meeting the new one.  The PLL casting department does an outstanding job.  Where do they find these boys?

4.  Now that Caleb is done talking to the ghost of Macy Misa in Ravenswood, can he please come back to Rosewood?

5.  We need more scenes with Toby.  Where is he?   Is he still with Spencer?  We can’t keep up.   Also we just thought of the time that Toby (Keegan Allen) was on Big Time Rush modeling with James Maslow, and now we’ve just realized how much we’d love to see him on Dancing With the Stars…

6.  Where is Jenna?  Did she run off with Jackson from Hannah Montana?  We feel like she probably has some answers that she’s withholding from us.

7.  How do these girls have perfect hair all the time?  Between school and work (not that we’ve ever seen anyone crack a book), and you know, being stalked by a team of crazy psychopaths, how do they find the time?  If it were us, we would be a HOT MESS.

8. WHY DOESN’T ANYONE JUST TELL THEIR PARENTS / A RESPONSIBLE ADULT / ANOTHER HOT MALE AUTHORITY FIGURE / ETC THAT THEY ARE BEING STALKED BY A?!?

Tune in to ABC Family at 8pm Tuesday, June 10th to watch “Pretty Little Liars” season 4 premiere and find out if any of our questions are answered!

Nickelodeon’s WebHeads With Carlos PenaVega Premieres Tonight!

Hosted by Big Time Rush member, Carlos PenaVega, Webheads is a new kind of gameshow that tests your knowledge of Internet trivia and viral videos!

We always thought Logan would be the game show host (Breakout Dreams anyone?) but we’re glad that now Carlos is will be appearing on our TVs every week!  An adorable ball of energy, Carlos is perfect for a game show host!  We caught him hosting an Apple in-store event last summer for GoDance, and he seemed just as home as he does on stage.

Carlos also revealed to Ryan Seacrest today that Big Time Rush is meeting in a few weeks to possibly plan a fall tour … needless to say we need to make this happen!  The band has been spending this year working on their own projects:  Kendall Schmidt released a single, “Parallel,” and  is touring with band Heffron Drive; James Maslow won hearts across America as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,”  and Logan Henderson has…wait has anyone heard from Logan?!

Watch the show preview below and don’t forget to tune in tonight at 6PM on Nickelodeon!  Carlos will be live-tweeting the premieres on both the East & West Coasts, so get your questions ready!  Follow Carlos on Twitter to join in!
