Reality Shows We Wish Existed
These seven celebs have denied us our guilty pleasure for too long. We admit, we’re totally obsessed with their lives: the VIP treatment they get everywhere they go, the multi-million dollar homes they own, the weird beauty tricks they endure to stay forever young. Since we’re not turning into celebrities overnight, we’d love to live vicariously through them by binge-watching their reality shows.
J. Lo: Finding Love

We’re not talking about a reality show like “Q’Viva: The Chosen.” Frankly, we couldn’t care less about another talent competition. The talent we’re interested in is how this 45-year-old Latina has 20-something-year-old men coming in and out of her life like it’s no biggie. Teach us your ways, J.Lo!
Speaking of no biggie, various media outlets report the diva bought a swanky Manhattan penthouse for $22 million, pocket change for someone who Celebrity Net Worth said has assets of $300 mil. We’re dying to see the bootylicious singer lounging around in all her luxurious splendor. But more than anything, we’d like to know how she goes through life with all that booty.
Pitbull’s ‘Round the World Party

How does one earn the nickname “Mr. Worldwide?” You party 24/7 surrounded by beautiful mamacitas all over the world, just like Pitbull does. The singer parties so hard that tour-buddy Enrique Iglesias has admitted he can’t keep up. To be honest, we wouldn’t be able to party as hard either, but we’d spend wild nights watching him on TV and randomly yelling “DAAAALEEE!” while he shows us how it’s done.
Sofia Vergara & Her Rise to Fame

We know Sofía Vergara as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, the sassy, trophy wife from “Modern Family.” The ride to fame has been just as drama-filled as a sitcom for the highest-paid actress on television. The New York Post dug up details about the vixen’s run-ins with the mafia, cancer and Tom Cruise. She’s also had some rocky relationships (remember creeper Nick Loeb?). There’s so much back story to her career, personal and romantic lives that we can’t believe someone hasn’t offered her a 10-season reality show yet.
The Complicated Life of Selena

What’s better than an overly-dramatic telenovela? Real life drama! And Selena Gomez has lots of it. There’s her on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber, her on-and-off friendships with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, her “real” friendships with Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, her new relationships with other famous men. And we’re dying to figure out if her relationship with Zedd is just a revenge plan to make Justin jealous. This girl has drama to spare!
Shakira On Top

Shakira just had her second child and she can still shake her hips like she did back in her “Pies Descalzos” days. The Colombian singer is still working full-time (did you hear about her recent collab with Maná?) while taking care of her babies and maintaining her loving relationship with her beau, Gerard Pique. Oh, and traveling the world. Please, show us how you do it!
Bruno Mars: Your Sweetest Bad Boy

Bruno Mars is one of the hottest rock stars of our time. He topped Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance, taught us to make love like gorillas and even got us to groove to funk again. But like any superstar, there’s much more to Peter Hernandez — his real name — than meets the ear. This seemingly good boy from Hawaii has a dark past that includes an arrest for cocaine possession, but it doesn’t stop there. The crooner confessed to GQ magazine he still enjoys gambling and loves diving deep into the nightlife scene. He’s sexy, has a voice that makes us swoon and a mysterious bad-boy side to him that we must learn more about.
Gina Rodriguez Navigating Hollywood

This newcomer is hot, funny, and she just won a Golden Globe to solidify how talented she is. If she wasn’t well-known before, that will change, and we want to come along for the ride. We want to know what acting gigs she’ll land, what celebs she’ll schmooze with, how she’ll react when strangers on the street start chasing her for a selfie. She’s probably the closest we’d ever get to becoming a celebrity starting from the ground up.
