Shannon Doherty, Kurt IswarienkoThere's been a rash of celebs getting hitched on their own reality shows recently, and hot on the heels of the Gene Simmons--Shannon Tweed and Kim Kardashian--Kris Humphries nuptials comes news that Shannon Doherty tied the knot (again) this past weekend.

According to 'People,' Doherty and her fiancé, photographer Kurt Iswarienko, got married at sunset on Saturday in front of 170 family and friends. The wedding was held -- not in Beverly Hills, alas -- at a private estate in Malibu.

The couple's road to wedlock has been chronicled for their upcoming WEtv reality show, 'Shannon Says,' which is due to premiere in January 2012. The actual wedding will reportedly form the series finale episode.

The Locator: A Father's Amends, a Daughter's Last Hope (season premiere)

The Locator, Troy DunnThe Locator is not a show I would have found on my own. I rarely bother to see what's going on on the WE network, because... well, let's face it, it's not marketed to me. Even in the world of cable networks, WE is still a pretty small fish trying to make their mark. It's something my wife stumbled upon during one of her random TV watching days, and I'm really glad she did.

The Locator is a show about hope and second chances. Troy Dunn, who built a business around reuniting disconnected people, does just that. The stories focus on lost sons, daughters, mothers and fathers looking for loved ones. Through a network of agents, Troy finds them and stages a surprise reunion for the cameras.

It may sound a little hokey, and at times it is, but nothing takes away from the genuine moments of human interaction that the show is all about. The Locator came back for a second season, featuring two stories of daughters and fathers separated.

WE to help fix up the Ugliest House on the Block

Ugly HouseAs if there weren't enough remodeling/makeover shows on the air, and obviously there aren't, WE tv has just greenlit the latest. The Hollywood Reporter tells us Ugliest House on the Block involves neighbors and experts giving a four-day makeover to whichever house the neighbors consider to be the biggest eyesore. And, of course, the show promises "green" segments to show how to be more environmentally friendly with home decorating and design.

"Home decorating and design is a genre that has mass appeal for women," said Kim Martin, executive VP and GM at WE. So does the bad-boys-who-treat-women-like-crap genre, but I don't see WE tailoring a show for this segment of the female population. I'd say the all-men-are-evil-and-deserve-to-be-put-down-like-dogs genre, but Lifetime Movie Network seems to have the corner on that market.
