Jason Wahler, Brody Jenner each shopping their own reality series

Two Hills alumni are shopping their own spin-off reality series. Former Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler is working on a show following his life with his fiance, while Lauren’s ex Brody Jenner is talking to MTV about his own show.

Wahler’s 22 and Taken would star both him and Katja Decker-Sadowski, and watch “as they prepare for their eventual wedding,” his rep told E! News. E! suggests, in a sentence that seems to be missing a word or two, that VH1 is rumored to have bought the series: “But rumors that VH1 has already snagged the show for its prime-time lineup, Wahler is still taking part in the pitch process.”

Meanwhile, Brody Jenner “was overheard telling clubgoers that he was celebrating his new reality show, a testosterone-charged spin-off of the popular MTV reality show, while partying at L.A.’s Goa recently,” People reports. The spin-off would also star Frankie Delgado.

Jenner’s rep confirmed to the magazine that “Brody is in talks with MTV but the details of the project have not been confirmed.” Besides his appearance in MTV’s current number-one show, Jenner previously appeared in the scripted, fake, stupid and cancelled Fox series Princes of Malibu.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
