Bravo housewives

The Real Housewives franchise has been a major hit for the Bravo network, as NBC Universal announced this week that it will begin airing the “Real Housewives” series five days a week in syndication beginning fall 2010.

Reruns of the series is expected to air weekdays on on NBC-owned stations. This is good news for Bravo, but no so much for the housewives as there have been several reports claiming the ladies will not be receiving a dime from the syndication profits.

The reason being because the ladies are on a reality show, and are not considered actors or SAG members. Therefore, they are not entitled to syndication checks. They only get paid while taping. The Atlanta housewives allegedly got paid $100,000 each for their 2nd season.

As expected, the ladies are not happy with this news and some allegedly would like to sue. Nene One of the ladies from the Atlanta franchise gave the following quote to Atlanta blogger FreddyO -

“This is some bull shit, we’ve been fighting their as* for the longest to keep the show from going to syndication without us making a dime … Damn, we not getting a dime and they making all the money… WOW … They can play the show forever and we will never get a check that aint right”

Something about this seems rather unfair, but then again the ladies signed the contracts.

Tell Us: Do You Think The Ladies Deserve A Cut Of The Syndication Profits? Should They Sue?

A story about Jon Gosselin allegedly hacking into Kate‘s email accounts and admitting to taking $155,000 out of their joint account was about to be published this morning until news broke that TLC has decided to sue Jon for breach of contract. The moral of this story is the Gosselin drama is never ending.

According to the HuffingtonPost, the TLC network filed a lawsuit Friday in Maryland against Jon for breaching his contract as star of the reality show “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”

The lawsuit alleges that Jon hasn’t met the obligations of his contract as an exclusive employee, has appeared on other programs for pay and made unauthorized disclosures about the show. RadarOnline reports TLC has hired Williams & Connolly, one of the best law firms in the country.

In other news, Jon finally admitted to taking $155,000 out of the joint account he shares with Kate, and has now promised to return it. Perhaps because he is now required to due to a Judge’s order on Tuesday. Jon had previously denied taking this amount of money, and even went as far as to call Kate’s story “A total fabrication.” He previously said, “I withdrew $22,000 last Thursday. I have the paper trail to prove it.”

Finally, Jon’s former nanny and ex-lover, Stephanie Santoro has come out accusing Jon of hacking into Kate’s personal accounts. Stephanie claims Jon bragged about this and threatened to use the information he found against Kate.

Kate is reportedly considering legal action against Jon. Her law firm released the following statement below

“Kate Gosselin has heard the allegations made by Stephanie Santoro that Jon Gosselin ‘hacked’ into her e-mails, phone, and online accounts, and she is profoundly disturbed by them,” her law firm, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, said in a statement Thursday. “Under the circumstances, Ms. Gosselin is carefully considering all of her legal options regarding this matter, and she will pursue them if and when the time is right.”

Preliminary autopsy results of the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s AshleyA.J.” Jewell are in, and it includes a surprise finding.

E! News is reporting that Dr. Kelly Rose of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s believes Kandi Burruss‘ ex-fiancé may have suffered from the sickle-cell anemia blood disorder, which may have contributed to his death during a fight outside an Atlanta strip club.

“Preliminary results are suggestive of [sickle-cell],” said Rose. AJ sustained a severe blow to the head in the Oct. 2 brawl that took his life at the Body Tap Club. He was allegedly a co-owner of the strip club.

The sickle-cell anemia disorder affects red blood cells, and may have restricted AJ’s body’s oxygen supply and exacerbated his injuries. Rose believes “The altercation played a role in that [his death], and his underlying disease process contributed to his overall demise.”

A final report that will state his official cause of death is expected in the near future. Frederick Richardson, a club employee, was charged with voluntary manslaughter and is currently being held in an Atlanta jail without bond.

Melissa Rycroft

Former Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft revealed to UsWeekly that she has the swine flu.

“I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus,” Melissa, 26, tells Usmagazine. “Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection.”

Melissa who also appeared on last season’s Dancing With The Stars wants people to know “how easy it is to battle this flu when you take the proper steps such as seeking the care of a doctor.” She continues, “I’m a clear case that by paying diligent attention to your health, it’s easy to overcome this illness and be healthy again.”

This may come as relief to some viewers who seem to have had enough of the Gosselin drama. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality show will officially end in November, reports RadarOnline.

Since Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce has turned into a soap opera and they both seem to love the spotlight, we can bet you haven’t seen the end of them. Although TLC hasn’t made any official announcements, RadarOnline was able to confirm the show’s termination next month.

Jon has denied the network the rights to film the children and TLC will not challenge that. As of now, the newly titled show — Kate Plus 8 is also done for, that is unless Jon changes his mind.

“TLC has no plans to film unless the situation is resolved,” said the source.

There’s something sentimental about seeing the old picture above of the Gosselin family. Fame is an awful drug. Perhaps getting off national television will be best for the family.

ABC recently announced Jake Pavelka as the new Bachelor, however his former Bachelorette co-star Wes Hayden, has little faith in the show.

“I hope he finds somebody and gets married because that show is full of s–t,” he told Usmagazine at the Fox Reality Channel’s Reality Awards in L.A. “One marriage in 18 seasons? I mean, come on!”

According to Wes, it’s “absolutely impossible to find love” on the ABC show.

“Call me old fashioned and say that my moral compass is off, but is it OK for one woman to make out with 30 guys and in eight weeks dwindle it down to someone she is going to spend the rest of her life with?” he said.

That’s not all, Wes goes on to claim there are rumors that Ryan and Trista were a couple prior to the show. “I heard they were already a couple before the show started. That’s what I heard from the past contestants when I was off the show,” said Wes. Trista & Ryan are the only couple to ever get married during the 18 seasons of the show.

Wes is also upset on how he was portrayed on the show.  “I saw one episode, and it was the very first one, and I was so upset that I didn’t watch any other episodes,” he said. “I mean, look at me! I’m sleeved out with tattoos! I’ve got the spiky hair!”

Wes reveals that his 17 year old sister signed him up for the show and he had no interest being a part of the show in the first place. How old is this guy again?

What about the future of Bachelorette Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski? “I love Jillian and I talk to her all the time on Facebook still,” Wes said. “If she gets married and has lots of babies and lives the American Dream, great. But honestly, I don’t think that is going to happen.”
