The star of 'Little People, Big World' talks family and bridezillas

The Roloffs say staying married means 'not liking each other sometimes'

After six seasons of "Little People, Big World," Matt and Amy Roloff seemingly rode into the syndication sunset in 2010, happy to work on their massive farm near Portland, Oregon and watch their four kids flutter out of the nest. But TLC has announced that the Roloffs are returning to the series grind with "Little People Big World: Wedding Farm" (premiering Tues. Nov. 13 at 9:00 p.m.), a six-episode series following the couple's decision to get into the wedding industry. Amy talked to HitFix about why she and Matt took on yet another endeavor, how they've managed to stay married for 25 years, and why she refuses to renew her vows on TV, even though they have the perfect venue right in their own backyard.

10 things you didn't know about 'Doomsday Preppers'

They may be ready for the end, but they're not as crazy as you think

Are you prepared for the end of the world? No? Well, most people aren't -- unless they're preppers. To kick off the second season of the NatGeo show "Doomsday Preppers" (Tues. Nov. 13, 9:00 p.m. ET), I sat down with some preppers -- Jay and Holly Blevins, Braxton and Kara Southwick and professional prepper (and show advisor) Scott Hunt -- to find out what keeps them up at night (not as much as you'd think). "There are a lot of grasshoppers jumping around, tweeting, Facebooking, all sorts of things, and the ants are planning, storing and doing just fine," Hunt explained. Here are ten things you may not have known about some seemingly normal families who just may have a lot more dehydrated stew in their possession than you do.

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: 'The Higher the Heel, the Closer to God'

Adrienne and Lisa still can't play nice - even at a kiddie birthday party

This week, we don't see much of new housewife Yolanda, but no matter. What we do see is enough to convince me that she's going to be a force for crazy for the rest of the season. Really, even if the rest of the wives dove head first into talk therapy to emerge as sweet and bland as packets of single serve artificially flavored apple cinnamon oatmeal, we'd still be plenty amused watching Yolanda spin around in circles trying to rationalize her inescapable nuttiness. But, as we know, the other housewives are just as catty and ridiculous as ever, so unleash the crazy!

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: The celebs hit the floor for three-ways

It's time for trio dancing, which brings one

Only two weeks left! And so many celebrities left! It's madness, I tell you, madness! But there will be a double elimination tomorrow. Tonight, we get dancing. Most significantly, we get dance trios. One celeb, two professionals to prop up him or her. This does not seem like a great idea to me, as a waltz or a samba sort of lends itself to two people, not three. But I guess the desperate need for challenges on "DWTS" this season requires wacky stuff like this.

'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: 'Excess Breeds Success'

Kenya and Cynthia butt heads, but NeNe is above it all

As we all know, Kenya is the latest crazymaker on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and with NeNe prancing around bragging about her evolution from screamy mean girl to evolved and mature woman (let’s say it all together: yeah, right), we need a fresh dose of bitchy to keep this show afloat. If everyone starts behaving themselves, it’s going to be about as much fun as watching cute cat videos without the cats.

Hunting, fishing and panicking with the 'Doomsday Preppers'

A trip to West Virginia was full of surprises, canned goods and one bunker

We're all going to die.

Okay, hopefully not anytime too soon. But if you ask the stars of "Doomsday Preppers" (new season premieres Tues. Nov. 13 at 9:00 p.m. on NatGeo), there's a fair chance it's not only going to happen sooner than we expect, but most of us are either going to starve to death, die of thirst, get hacked up by crazed marauders or turned into oven baked hams when we can't hide from the nuclear blast. And by "we," doomsday preppers really mean everyone but themselves.

Reality TV Roundup: A 'Survivor' talks ball and 'Housewives' gets fresh nuts

It's been a busy week, so get all your reality news here, now
Welcome to Reality TV Roundup -- a quick look at some of the reality TV-centric stories that have recently popped up across the fine, old Interwebs. Click away, my couch potato friends. But before you do...
 
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! One more time: SPOILER ALERT. If you watch any competition shows, the latest elimination for each show is probably revealed in the text below. The hope is that, if you missed this week's program and would rather clear out your DVR than watch the episode, you can get a quick hit here. But don't come crying to me if you find out something you didn't want to know. You've been warned. Also note: lots of non-competition reality info lurks below, too.

'Project Runway: All Stars' recap: 'Up Your Aerosol'

Ivy and Laura Kathleen battle to see which girl is the meanest
Oh, goody. It's a wearable art challenge! We know how these tend do go, don't we? Some people think of art as a nice dress, and other people think of art as something melting and puked up all over a wall with bits of twigs in it, and those people tend to send walking nightmares down the runway and go home. Really, I think the judges need to define art, which, as I recall, took my college professor a few classes to really nail down (and even then, the upshot is, "art is what you make it"), so maybe they could do everyone a solid and explain that they'd like to see a nice jumpsuit or something.

'The Vampire Diaries' recap: 'The Killer'

It's a face off between the vamps and the hunter - with dire consequences

“The Vampire Diaries” is a show largely fueled by secrets. Vampires passing as mortals, Originals with long and detailed secret histories, stolen kisses and bloodlettings. Sometimes secrets can be compelled out of mind or, after a minor squabble, be forgiven. But tonight, they kind of mess up everything in such nightmarish terms that the truth, complicated and ugly though it might be, is looking pretty darn appealing to almost everyone for a variety of reasons. Well, not everyone. But we'll get to that in a moment.

'Top Chef: Seattle' recap: 'The Ultimate Chef Test'

The season premiere is chock full of seemingly simple challenges

It's season 10 of "Top Chef," and we're off to Seattle! Wait, we're not off to Seattle yet. This season we have a twist. Instead of the epic Alamo cook-off of last season, this time the chefs are broken up into groups and sent to work as slave labor at one of the restaurants owned by either Emeril LaGasse, Hugh Acheson, Tom Colicchio or our new judge, Wolfgang Puck. The celebrity chefs will then decide who goes through to compete on the show, and who doesn't. I like this change, as it gives each judge a chance to put at least some of the potential competitors to a test they deem most important, even if that means some people get to just skate by making a damn salad.
