Lifetime's 'Kim of Queens' cancelled after two seasons

Lifetime has no plans to bring back reality show "Kim of Queens" featuring Johns Creek pageant coach Kim Gravel for a third season.

Three more episodes remain from season two and Lifetime plans to air them in April, a spokeswoman said.

The show didn't pull in the ratings the network had expected, but the network hopes to continue to to work with Gravel in the future.

"Disappointed BUT another show in the works," Gravel texted me. "The show was a huge blessing."

In an attempt to replicate the success of "Dance Moms," Lifetime debuted "Kim of Queens" on New Year's Day 2014. It featured Gravel coaching mostly teen-age girls how to be better pageant contestants.

Gravel herself was Miss Georgia in 1991.

“It's not about training the girls for pageants,” Gravel said to me last year. “It’s about training the girls for life. The fact is you won’t always win. It’s learning to cope with that. Losing isn’t failure. It’s an opportunity to grow. You also learn that life isn’t fair.”
