The only dramality TV series that did not tank completely was Brynne Edelsten’s My Bedazzled Life and it looks like it is going to be renewed for a second season.
News.com.au are reporting SEVEN have signed her up and they will be filming in the USA in her home state of Arizona and also in Japan.
This is great news for fans of Brynne who showed once again on Celebrity Splash that she was likeable. It is a pity they did not continue filming last year as it could have been a reality show filming a reality show!
I watched all the episodes of the first series and what was great about it was you thought you were getting the real Brynne and they certainly were not afraid to shy away from the marriage troubles and her wanting to have a baby.

Geoffrey Edelsten’s business deals appear to be going sour in the USA with news he is now in court trying to get some money back from a former business partner and he is also claiming that this person tried to extort him.
Each week during Brynne: A Bedazzled Life I wondered how does Geoffrey make his money to lead such a deluxe lifestyle. Well some of that may now be revealed.
Geoffrey is now in court in the US accusing his business parter Rafael Mawardi of trying to extort him. He also says that he has invested in businesses that had been overvalued by Rafael. Mr Mawardi appeared on the final episode of the reality show in a scene in Florida.
The Daily Telegraph has the full murky details:
Dr Edelsten and Rafael “Alfie” Mawardi, from Florida, launched bitter countersuits in the US District Court after they fell out over a chain of fashion stores and other businesses they were creating.
In court documents, the 69-year-old said he met Mr Mawardi in 2010 and agreed to invest in his fashion brand, the House of Nurielle.
Brynne Edelsten, 28, who married the doctor in 2009, was to become the public face of the fashion line.
According to court documents, Dr Edelsten went to Florida in September, demanding Mr Mawardi account for the $18 million he claimed he had invested in various business partnerships over two years.
At that point, the relationship turned nasty, with Mr Mawardi allegedly threatening to embarrass the Edelstens.
Dr Edelsten claims in court documents his former partner demanded $1.5 million that was allegedly owed to his son, Isaac.
“The theme was that if I didn’t pay the $1.5 million to him, he would destroy me and my wife,” he said in his affidavit.
He also said he, Mr Mawardi and Brynne were in a vehicle driving to an airport on September 5.
“It was in the car on the way to the airport that Rafael Mawardi said to Brynne, ‘You are a gold digger’, and mentioned that he would destroy me and wife Brynne,” Dr Edelsten said.
He claims Mr Mawardi said he would try to destroy Brynne’s reputation and her reality TV series, which aired in Australia this year.
And that is just a snippet the story here, they also goes on to talk about how he paid $4 million for a Casino worth $1 million.
It is a pity the cameras are not still rolling on the Edelsten reality show as it would be a cracker plot line.

Brynne Edelsten must not have been very happy Monday morning when she opened this weeks Woman’s Day magazine, and saw the article alleging she used to be a stripper.
Brynne’s team have gone into damage control saying there were a lot of inaccuracies in the story, however rumour has it they had actually left a lot more salacious information out.
TRASHTASTIC reality TV starlet Brynne Edelsten consulted lawyers yesterday following magazine allegations she previously worked as a stripper.
The Arizona-raised bombshell – who married controversial Aussie entrepreneur Geoffrey Edelsten, a man worth an estimated $100 million – denied claims made by Woman’s Day she started out as a club dancer at a nightspot called Skin Cabaret in the small town of Scottsdale.
In a statement to media, the 29-year-old said: “In response (to the story), I have questions.
“If I was a stripper, and I’m not, what’s the crime?”
Edelsten’s manager John Scott confirmed they had engaged their legal team.
“There’s so many inaccuracies with that story and of course we have consulted our lawyers,” he said.
The offending article quoted a supposed ex, Eddie Carlee, who said he got Brynne the job at Skin Cabaret.
“For a while she dated a rich guy here named Eric Crown but it didn’t work out,” Carlee told the mag.
It also quotes a former LA landlord, Elizabeth Rhee, who said Brynne called her one day to say she was moving to Oz.
“She was getting married and suddenly she had money to burn because she wired me money to pay these guys to move her stuff,” Rhee told the magazine.
Brynne met 69-year-old Edelsten in Las Vegas and within weeks had moved to Melbourne with him.
On a recent episode of her Channel 7 show, Brynne: My Bedazzled Life, she flew her best friend Katie Eagle – a stripper from Skin Cabaret – to Australia.
Woman’s Day editor Fiona Connolly said: “Out of respect to Brynne, we edited a lot of material too explicit to publish.”
Brynne has heaps of fans out there, and I am not sure they would be too shocked about her background, we always knew she wasn’t a nurse of school teacher.
Brynne: My Bedazzled Life screens on Seven at 7.30pm on Thursday nights.

Tonight on Brynne: My Bedazzled Life there is a big blow up between Geoffrey and Brynne Edelsten which may have been the cause for them to separate for a month. It will be interesting to see whether if what happens on screen aligns with what is currently be told in a court case.
The case is related to action he is taking in the Victorian Supreme Court against an American woman he met an internet dating site.
By the way is there any reality star not in court this year. There was Lara Bingle, half the cast of The Shire and now this pair. Though to be fair they are taking the action in a civil case.
The Age reports:
THE marriage of controversial businessman Geoffrey Edelsten and his reality TV show wife was apparently not so bedazzling earlier this year when the pair wrestled during an argument, a court has heard.
Giving evidence at a civil trial over action he is taking in the Victorian Supreme Court against an American woman he met on the internet, Mr Edelsten testified that he and his wife, Brynne, had separated for about four weeks in March after an argument that had turned physical.
”Brynne had taken my mobile phone and when I asked for it back she refused. We had a wrestle and she went out on the balcony for a cigarette and called her lawyer, who told her to call police,” Mr Edelsten told the court yesterday.
Asked what his marriage was like at the time, Mr Edelsten replied: ”Strained.”
The court heard that while he and his wife were separated he had previously met New Jersey woman Stacy da Silva on sugardaddyforme.com during a business trip to the United States.
But details of the 69-year-old disgraced doctor’s dealings with Ms da Silva have been suppressed and remain the subject of a court injunction order he is seeking so they remain confidential.
He told Justice David Beach: ”I’m embarrassed about personal matters being retained in front of anyone else … I regret that this is my only course of remedy.”
The court heard Mr Edelsten told his 29-year-old wife about his dealings with Ms da Silva once they had ”well and truly made up”.
Ms Edelsten is expected to give evidence about a phone call the court heard she made to Ms da Silva, ordering her to leave her husband alone. ”She told her what she thought of her and that she was a tramp and to stop contacting her husband,” Dr Edelsten said, adding that he and his wife were in San Diego when the call was made.More will come out as the trial continues.

The much anticipated premiere of Brynne Edelsten’s show Brynne: My Bedazzled Life starts this Thursday at 7.30pm on SEVEN.
The first episode shows that Brynne’s reality program is much better than Lara Bingle’s as it is entertaining. She is self depreciating, likeable and it does appear more real.
Of course the plot lines are made up but the show does appear more real then what we saw on The Shire and Being Lara Bingle.
The one thing that will keep the viewer coming back for more will be having a birds eye view on her relationship with husband Geoffrey. Was it a marriage of love? There is a forty year age difference between the pair.
Also one of the plotlines appears to be her wanting a baby. The tension over this issue literally explodes in episode two.
Whilst the show was filming their relationship was under strain with revelations that Geoffrey may have met up with another women from a dating website in the USA. What we will see of discussions surrounding this will be interesting.
Sure Brynne’s not real bright, materialistic and and limited in talents, but there is something very sweet about her and it was this was why when Sonia Kruger took a sarcastic swipe at her on Dancing With The Stars the public were on Team Brynne.
You get the feeling that this will be the case once people watch the show.
Brynne: My Bedazzled Life starts this Thursday on SEVEN at 7.30pm.
