Will all hell break loose when Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka cross paths on the season premiere of Bachelor Pad 2? When will the cast of Dancing with the Stars finally be revealed? All that and more in your “Reality Bytes” for Monday, August 8, 2011.

Idol News. American Idol runner up Lauren Alaina’s video for her single “Like My Mother Does” premieres today on CMT.

“The video is all about my mom and it has footage from my childhood and pictures of me and my family while I was growing up,” says Alaina. “It’s all projected on this beautiful Southern-style house. It’s really great. It shows my life, so people will know more about me after they see it.”

And, you can watch Idol winner Scotty McCreery’s video for his debut hit, “I Love You This Big,” when it premieres Tuesday, August 9th on CMT.

Mark Your Calendars! Season 13 of Dancing with the Stars is just around the corner and that means it’s almost time for the cast announcement! DWTS will introduce the celebs participating in the new season on August 29th during The Bachelor Pad 2. Will Snooki and Mike Tyson make the cut?

The Bachelor Pad Returns. And speaking of The Bachelor Pad… A whole new crew of former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants (including 3 men who were just on Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette) are coming together to compete for love and money (or for the love of money), but of course, all eyes will be on Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi as they interact for the first time since their brutal split.

The Bachelor Pad 2 premieres tonight at 8|7c on ABC.



Plus, on Tuesday, watch Jesse Csincsak and crew recap all the action on Bachelor Pad Beatdown!

Basketball (EX) Wives Extended Preview Tonight, on an all new episode of Basketball Wives, Chad is introduced to Evelyn’s jealous (read: cah-razy) side when she catches him having lunch with another woman, while Jennifer and Royce seem to be dealing with some relationship issues as well. Will these two ever work it out? Is it wrong that I’m secretly hoping that they don’t?

Basketball Wives airs tonight at 8|7c on VH1.
