Master P Beefs With Cox


Lots of locals have issues with the Cox Cable Company. Now Master P is joining that list. He is not upset about the service disruptions or high prices. Rather, the hip-hop mogul is upset that his reality show “Family Empire” is not available to viewers in New Orleans.


Edwin Edwards Reality Show Coming in February


EWE TV is set to become a reality. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Edwin Edwards and his new wife Trina will at last be on cable with the debut of the couple's much-ballyhooed reality show next month. The Governor's Wife will premiere Feb. 27 on A&E according to the celeb news source.


Woman Alleges Miscarriage of Cajun Justice


The latest "real-life" A&E show set on the Bayou is called Cajun Justice, but a woman filmed while being arrested apparently isn't okay settling things outside the dance hall. After she said she was injured by a sheriff's deputy during what could become a segment for the show, Angela Rodrigue sued show's producers and the Terrebone Sheriff's Office. According to the Houma Courier, the Chauvin woman claims in the suit that a sheriff's deputy was goaded on by show producers to act rougher and tougher. A Terrebone Assistant DA suggested the rolling TV cameras may "distract" cops from their duties. With promo materials that call the sheriff a "king," it's tough to tell how it would go to their heads.


Reality Casting Call of the Week: VH-I's Tough Love


Public consumption of Edwin Edwards' life remains confined to his wife's Facebook page for now, and those who rule over reality shows seem to sense yet another opportunity to make people look dumb on national TV. Today's casting call comes courtesy of Tough Love, the VH-1 dating show that is equal parts Millionaire Matchmaker and Tila Tequila, with the requisite subtle hints of Jersey Shore. The show is looking for Gulf Coast men and women ages 21 and over to take out their already-assembled cast on televsion. The tagline says it all: 


Bad Girls Club New Orleans Season Premieres Tonight


On Saturday, admitted reality show novice Edwin Edwards said he wouldn't participate in a reality show that made him look bad. Well, the silver fox and Trina better curl up on the couch and take notes tonight. Oxygen premieres the New Orleans-shot season of their show, The Bad Girls Club. The season was filmed primarliy at the seven participants' made-for-TV sanctuary in Kenner. Bits and pieces about the show have already leaked out. They were just that Bad.


Jersey Shore Creators Head to Cajun Coast for 'Party Down South'


by Brad Rhines

On MTV, you don't have to be Edwin Edwards to land a spot on a reality show. If you’ve always wanted to shake your ass and watch yourself, then this may be your moment to shine. Since it went so well last time, the music channel that doesn't really play much music anymore is once again coming to town. So dust off the beer bong and hide your toothbrush, because Gulf Coast residents are now eligible to land a spot on Party Down South, a new reality show brought to you by the geniuses behind Jersey Shore.


Edwin Edwards the Next Reality TV Star?


There are many things to discover about Edwin Edwards on Facebook. If the profile that 3,726 people have friended (including this man) is indeed the original silver fox, we can safely say that he enjoys Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, he is engaged to a woman who looks slightly younger than him and he's in talks to develop a reality show about his current life. Wait! What? One of Louisiana's most iconic politicians wants to have his life committed to tape after his political career? The same kind of tape that made Hulk Hogan and Gene Simmons look so charming? (VIA)
