The Style Network is bringing another reality show to Chicago. "Chicagolicious" will be the local version of hit show "Jerseylicious," and follows the drama at AJÉS Salon in the West Loop.

Meanwhile, "Mob Wives Chicago" is ruffling feathers in the Italian-American community, and even getting restaurants they film at in trouble -- when they're allowed in at all.
