Following the June 22nd episode depicting the much-hyped divorce announcement, viewership has significantly declined on TLC’S Jon & Kate Plus 8. The Season 5 premier had an estimated 9.8 million viewers compared to the 2.4 million viewers that tuned in this past Monday.
The show has been placed on hold but plans to return on August 3rd. According to TLC, this will give the Gosselins time to adjust. Despite the family issues, Kate plans to continue taping the reality hit. In a recent statement released on Tuesday, the Gosselins say they will no longer speak to the press.
“Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible,” the Gosselins wrote on TLC’s Web site. “We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many.”
The second season of Real Chance of Love doesn’t premier until August 3rd, but the good news is we are able to bring you some hot photos of some of the ladies that will be appearing on this new season.
For some very strange reason, these television dating reality shows seem to attract aspiring bikini models, pornstars and strippers. We have yet to discover the pornstar(s) on Real Chance of Love 2 but below is a gallery of some of the ladies.
Classy aka Kaylana Reese does some modeling.
Baker aka Jazmin Waterz is a stripper from Atlanta’s Magic City.
Hot wings aka Kamille Leai also does modeling. Added are also pictures of Sassy, Mamacita and Lady.
Branden Mathena aka Chi chi from Daisy of Love is talking about his time and dismissal from show. In this new interview with VH1, Chi chi remains positive when talking about his friendship with Sinister, his feelings towards Daisy and being called “creepy” by others.
How was the show for you?
It was fun. It was the best time of my life. I loved it.
Daisy was afraid that keeping you and Sinister on the show together was driving a stake through your friendship. Did you two reconcile?
Yeah, right away. We’re best friends. We live together. We’ve been best friends for years. We’ve lived together for a while.
Nothing that he said ever took a toll on your friendship?
No, he never really upset me. I respect him for his opinion. I know he’s my best friend, so we’re just honest with each other. All you can do is be honest. You can’t help the way you feel inside. When I watch the show – we watch it together every Sunday – it’s like he’s throwing me under the bus and making fun of me and stuff, and I’m like, “Wow, dude.” ‘Cause I would never say nothing bad about anybody so I’m just like, “Wow, that’s just gonna make you look bad, idiot.”
It’s funny that you came off as one of the most sensitive guys on the show, yet unlike so many of the others, you didn’t really cry after you were eliminated.
Yeah, I wasn’t crying in the bathroom either, they edit that stuff. But yeah, I was just happy for Daisy, and I respect her decision. Like I said before: you can’t help the way you feel inside, and if you’re honest, people shouldn’t judge you. I just want the best for her. I just want her to be happy.
MTV continues it’s trend of taking young, attractive 20 something year olds, supplying them with loads of alcohol, all while taping it and calling it the “Real World.” I promised myself I was done with this show, but I caught myself watching both episodes last night and I must say, it was pretty interesting.
We’ll start of with Ayiiia (the viewers choice) who for some reason just comes of as very unlikeable. Within seconds of seeing this girl on TV, I just knew she would be the token “annoying” cast mate. Something tells me the viewers who voted for her might be feeling bamboozled as she came off as being sweet, fun and exciting during the audition process. A different story however on the show, where she is coming off as annoying, cold, unlikeable, and an all around Debbie Downer.
Yes, Joey acted like a jerk towards her by spitting on her tacos, but she was way out of line for making fun of Joey’s “herpes” lip in my opinion. Moving on to Jonna and CJ aka the “heartthrob.” So in Jonna world, it’s completely okay to sleep in the same bed with another man, dry hump him, kiss him everywhere but his lips, hold hands with him every chance you get, then act shocked and appalled when he finally attempts to kiss you? Pretty much felt bad for Jonna’s boyfriend during the entire show. She seems sweet but very misguided. She might have CJ confused with Derek who is gay and probably my favorite roommate at the moment. Here’s my summary of each of the housemates -
Emilee = Total drama queen. Bears a striking resemblance to Mallory of Real World Paris.
Jonna – Seems like a nice girl but her “hotness” is extremely very overrated. The way she is alienating herself from the other female cast mates will be sure to backfire.
CJ - Insanely gorgeous but a jerk, and was definitely looking for a reason to break up with his girlfriend from back home.
Jasmine - So so for the moment, don’t like the way she seems to follow what the other girls (Emilee and Aiiiya) are doing.
Derek - Very likeable, love the way he tries to keep the peace.
Bronne - The one I keep wanting to forget, waiting for his purpose on the show to be revealed. Seems nice though.
Joey – Likeable jerk. His music was great.
Aiiiya – Something about her just rubs you the wrong way, or maybe it’s just me.
All in all, this should be an interesting season. I am somewhat hooked now, and can’t wait to see the next episode. Wonder what causes the big fight between Emilee and Aiiiya. Below are some photos of the cast members.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON REAL WORLD CANCUN?
Danielle Staub’s ex and author of “Cop Without A Badge,” Kevin Maher continues to speak out about his ex wife. Kevin gave another interview to Star, stating her life is in danger.
The reason being? “She helped put a couple of big-time Colombian coke dealers in jail,” says Kevin. “These are dangerous men who never forget…and they could be back out on the street now. It’s mind-boggling to me that she’d put herself at risk!”
Kevin continues “I can’t believe Danielle would have allowed herself to go on TV — on a series that basically shows where she lives! — given what she has done in the past.” How sweet of Kevin for caring so much for Danielle’s safety.
In other NJ Housewives’s news, Jacqueline Laurita gave a new interview to Life & Style magazine and spoke out against Danielle once again -
“I don’t think it was something as simple as giving a phone number out, but leave it to Danielle to try to downplay her whole dirty deed. She’s an angry, bitter person. She felt Dina rejected her, so she went out to destroy her!
All of the housewives excluding Danielle also appeared this morning on the Regis and Kelly show. Danielle was not with them because the housewives felt it would be uncomfortable. Also when pressed about what Danielle did to Dina, they all refused to say exactly what it was. Below is a picture of them leaving the studio -
VH1 has released the Supertrailer of Megan Wants A Millionaire featuring Megan Hauserman. It is set to premier on August 2nd at 9/8c. The show will also feature Megan’s close friends, Brandi C from Rock of Love/I Love Money and Cecille Garr from Beauty and the Geek 3, helping her make her choice.
The show is supposed to feature 17 millionaires vying for Megan’s love, but one of the men, Punisher, is actually a stripper. Maybe I missed a memo, but I wasn’t aware male strippers were now earning millions. You might also remember Punisher from VH1 as he was one of the men who tried out to be on I Love New York 2.
The Bachelorette’s Jake Pavelka is swinging back at Wes and his “girlfriend” Laurel. We posted a story yesterday with Laurel coming to Wes’s defense, claiming she was not dating Wes during the show, and is currently not dating him. I said yesterday that I wasn’t buying her story, and well Jake seems to agree.
Jake spoke to People today, and says he stands by his story of Wes dating Laurel during filming. Not only that, Jake goes on to say Wes and Laurel are still together! Jake claims they are both in cahoots with duping Jillian Harris. Some excerpts from this interview are below -
Why did you come back?
A producer called me to see if I was doing okay because I took leaving hard and I broke down. [I said,] “I need to tell her some things. Any way I could talk to her again?” I ran through it and they made it happen. I was lying in bed every morning going, “I screwed up. I should have told her before I left.” I wanted to come back because I had information she needed to make the best decisions about the remaining guys and to be there for her. Now I sleep easy at night.
PEOPLE spoke to Laurel and she denied being together during taping. Do you stand by what you claimed, that Wes said he had a girlfriend?
I don’t believe it. I know it. Without a shadow of a doubt, he and Laurel were together. They’re still together. It’s an act and Laurel was in cahoots with him. They had an agreement to put their relationship on the back-burner so he could go on and sell CDs. His biggest fear was making it far enough to go on overnight dates because that wasn’t okay with Laurel. Evidently she cleared [him] to kiss. I’m a God-fearing man and if I am mistaken or he didn’t tell me that, God can strike me down with lightning right now.
Are you there?
Yeah. Still here! We had multiple conversations. He confided with me. He told me he loved [Laurel]. He said, “I’m going to break her heart. I’m going to bow out when the time is right.” This stuff came out of his mouth.
The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick refuses to be upstaged by his ex fiance, Melissa Ryfroft, as Jason is now saying he and Molly will tie the knot someday. Melissa just got engaged to her beau Tye Strickland this past weekend.
“Things are going great,” Jason said on Good Morning America today, adding that he and Mollly will “absolutely someday” walk down the aisle.
According to Molly, she is also planning to move from Milwaukee to Seattle to be closer to her him. “We’re very happy,” she says. “We’re doing the distance thing right now.”
Molly also says “it’s been great” getting to know Jason’s 4-year-old son, Ty. The family recently went on a vacation to Turks and Caicos.
Surprised these two are still together despite all the public backlash over the way he treated Melissa, but I guess it’s time we all move past that. So good luck to these two.
