Know what newsstands were missing? A magazine devoted to all things reality TV. No, that’s not it? Too bad. American Media is filling that gaping void with Reality Weekly, a new rag that will chronicle every move Kim K‘s ass makes and every punch thrown post-Gauntlet, the New York Times is reporting. Thank god, right?
Reality Weekly will hit newsstands in early January and, much like their subject matter’s taste level, it’s going to be cheap–$1.79 an issue cheap. The magazine will cover such topics as “Biggest Fights of the Week,” “Hottest Shots of the Week,” (a roundup of the best bikini shots), “Where Are They Now?” and a weekly column from one-time reality TV star Victoria Gotti, of Growing Up Gotti. There will also be listings of reality show casting calls and tips on how to make an impression so, you know, we can have even more reality TV stars on our hands.
There is one good thing about the magazine though: There’ll never want for material. “Reality stars, you can’t keep them away,” the magazine’s editor Richard Spencer told NYT. “It’s always ‘Come to my wedding!’ or ‘I just redid my baby’s room. Want to see it?’” Another bonus, according to Spencer, is that it keeps those pesky things we like to call “words” to a minimum: “You don’t even have to read it to know what’s going on.”
Well, there you have it. Will you buy it?
