The premise was simple enough: The family decided to try to create investments that Clay would endorse and help them take to market. But it turned out the entire thing was a scam, so nobody was getting a fast ticket out of their lives.
As they wrap things up, there are several season and series-long storylines coming to a head. Vince is still reeling from his Vanity Fair interview with Sophia, seeking out girls he's slept with to reassure himself he isn't the vapid womanizer the piece makes him out to be. Drama and Andrew Dice Clay just outlasted CBS in stand-off over 'Johnny's Bananas,' and with that project taken care of, the gang turns its focus to Vince's miner TV movie. Ari seems resigned to the fact that his divorce with Mrs. Ari (Melissa!) may become a reality, and that it could cost him the majority stake in his agency.
In our exclusive preview clip from this week's episode, the boys run into one of Vince's former flames who's now pregnant (we're assuming he's not the dad, but who knows). She and Vince have a heartfelt conversation, which immediate turns 'Entourage'-y as Drama points out that he slept with her sister, Turtle makes a herpes joke and Drama says, "at least I'm getting laid enough to be a suspect." Typical.
Check it out after the jump.
The trailer picks up with Vince 90 days clean and sober, out of rehab after dealing with his Sasha Grey-induced cocaine problem. Drama is recording his gorilla-fronted cartoon series 'Johnny Bananas,' which co-stars Andrew Dice Clay. Turtle looks like he's lost about 35 pounds, and is working on his tequila project, trying to make his business moves without Vince's help. Sloane sends Eric back his engagement ring in the mail. Ari's separated and it looks like his marriage is falling apart. Vince writes a script for Drama that nobody except the Chase brothers seems particularly enthused about. Something shocking happens and everyone gasps!

But there's just as passionate a group of people who simply can't stand them, and for many different reasons.
On 'Lopez Tonight,' host George Lopez wasn't even comfortable representing that side of the pop culture debate, so he brought out a special guest who had a lot of experience tearing down things that were popular: comedian Andrew Dice Clay.
I have my reasons I must watch. Yes, I wondered if Joan Rivers' face can actually show any signs of movement after all of her plastic surgery (it doesn't). Her mouth smiles, but that's about it. Nonetheless, Joan can be so outrageous and spontaneous that she'll crack me up anyway (and my face actually can move with expressions). Having her, Dennis Rodman, Andrew Dice Clay, Clint Black, and some of the others is enough to get me hooked on the show even before the season started. Oh, that doesn't mean I like them all. But I do like my just desserts and Clay got his cupcakes last night.
I mean, really ... Dennis Rodman? Dice Clay? Tom Green? Joan and Melissa Rivers? A Kardashian sister that isn't Kim? No wonder why the only people who leaked the news were Letterman and Conan; they cast is barely even worthy of late-night monologue scorn.
Anyway, the list carries the most infamous transgressions, like Sinead O'Connor's tearing of the Pope's picture, Martin Lawrence's raunchy monologue, and Elvis Costello playing "Radio Radio" when Lorne Michaels specifically told him not to. But, sometimes, all you have to do is go off script, as Adrien Brody and Charles Grodin found out, to garner a lifetime ban. Or just come unprepared, as Louise Lasser found out. Interestingly enough, Andrew Dice Clay isn't on the list, even though he did a monologue that was probably even more raunchy than Lawrence's. I think the Wikipedia readers just missed that one.

This raises all kinds of questions for me. Did you know that Jerry Springer still had a TV show? I thought he was busy running for office or something. More importantly, can you make a reality show about a show that pretends to examine reality and uses "real" people but is largely staged much in the way, say, professional wrestling is staged? And, since we all know that reality programming is also hyper-edited, written and sometimes staged, will my head explode when I try to decode what's real, what's fake, who's pre-op, who's post-op and who's my baby's daddy? I'm already confused.
Fortunately, this isn't VH1's only new offering. You can also expect to see Andrew Dice Clay and Tom Sizemore vehicles. So much to look forward to in 2007.
I'm getting so tired doing stories about all these reality shows. So very, very tired...
VH-1 has not only renewed Hogan Knows Best and Celebrity Eye Candy (I didn't even know there was a show called Celebrity Eye Candy), but they have also given the go-ahead to several new shows. Andrew Dice Clay will have a reality show that documents his big comeback. And Celebrity Paranormal Project will send celebs to get paranormal evidence in very scary places.
Are they kidding about that one? Seriously, is that a joke?
Three other shows coming: The Wendy Williams Experience will be a behind the scenes look at her radio show; The Fabulous Life Presents: Really Rich Real Estate will show what it's like working at one of the best known real estate agencies in L.A. Expect lots of footage of celeb homes you love but can't possibly afford; and a reality show that will follow Tom Sizemore around.
