LA Clippers Dance Squad

I'm a fan of the American reality TV shows Dance MomsBring It! and Step It Up. (Also the British TV series Dance Mums UK). A similar show has just started in the UK called LA Clippers Dance Squad, so I've been watching that. The series follows the dance squad for the basketball team LA Clippers, based in Los Angeles. The squad features 20 girls, team captain Kellie, co-captain Athena, Natalie, Hannah,  Blair, Savanna, Walesska, Haley, Karissa,  Taylor, Gabrielle, Candace, Amber, Brooke, Tatum, Mariah, Brianna, Sharon, Tyra and Bernadette. Petra Pope is the creative director of the team and Latrice Gregory is the choreographer.

The main members featured are rookie Athena Perample who has ruffled feathers with the other girls because she's been made team captain despite having just joined, veteran Kellie Jankesi who has a lot of responsiblity due to being team captain and also had to deal with her mum's death recently, Natalie Tenerelli, another veteran who has been struggling to keep up in some of the dance routines (also a former contestant on the American version of Survivor), Hannah Cormier from Louisana, who broke-up with her boyfriend to follow her dream and is thrilled to have made it to California, Blair Kim, another rookie who is also in a girl group and recently had a new love interest on the show, party girl Savanna Read from Tennessee and Candace Washington, a veteran for 2 years who hopes to make it to Broadway in the future.

The show is entertaining so far (I've only seen 3 episodes). I like Blair and Hannah and Kellie seem nice. Athena is interesting but she seems to rub people up the wrong way! Maybe it's because she's confident and ambitious and has a strong belief in herself. The girls are going to be competing to be chosen to go with the squad to China, so there will be plenty of drama in store!


Update 13/4/16: The original trailer was made private but here's another one. :)

Here's a trailer for the series:







Also here's a clip of Candace, Hannah and Natalie dancing at a pick-up basketball game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxHrPrLd2sE

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
