Big BrotherIt's no secret that the networks pad their summer schedules with cheap-to-produce reality fare.

Dina LohanLindsay Lohan won't be on 'Dancing With the Stars' next season, but we could see another Lohan instead.

In an interview with RadarOnline, Lindsay's mom, Dina, said she was interested in appearing on the show even though her daughter turned it down, saying, "Lindsay actually told the woman at 'Dancing With the Stars' who made the offer that 'you need to take my mom!'"

No word on whether the producers listened to the suggestion, but since Dina's giving interviews about the conversation, we're betting they didn't.

Some Kardashians on 'RuPaul's Drag U''RuPaul's Drag U' (Mon., 8PM ET on Logo) is a show where -- well, it's complicated. Basically, the series involves giving straight women makeovers, but doing it to them in "drag queen" format And why would a straight women feel the need to appear as a drag queen? Isn't this essentially the same as just slapping a lot of makeup on a woman? How is this helpful at all? ... Oh, don't ask so many questions, you!

On the latest episode, Kris Jenner appeared as a guest judge on the show. Kris is the mom of Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian and probably some other people who have the first letter "K" in their names as well. At any rate, Kris' appearance brought on a very "Kardashian"-themed episode of the program. Various fake "drag queens" paraded down the runway, looking for Kris' approval.
