Oh, Welcome to Myrtle Manor–you keep making South Carolina proud! The Learning Channel show follows the inhabitants of a Southern trailer park, and the cast is determined to make a name for themselves…maybe not through ratings, but through arrests.
In the last week, three of the cast mates were popped by the po-po with two being arrested over the weekend. Now two of the Myrtle Manor residents are facing DUI charges while another faces allegations of sexual acts with a minor. Oh goodness!
The ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seem to be in the tabloids more when they're not filming…although that may be the norm for the entire franchise. They don't want us to forget about them in the off season, that's for sure! After Adrienne Maloof's not-so-dramatic exit, rumors are swirling as to who will step into her hoofs shoes. While Yolonda Foster seamlessly meshed with the original ladies thanks to her lemon fresh attitude and perfect white jeans, there is still room for more drama-loving women who are dripping in diamonds and private jets.
That said, many readers will be happy to learn that one of the originals from Beverly Hills will be downgraded to a "friend" of the housewives. It's being reported that Taylor Armstrong will be returning to the upcoming season in a diminished capacity. While many viewers want her gone completely, there is something to be said for baby steps, right?
Happy weekend, readers! I hope your week was better than Rob Kardashian's. Poor guy was advertising his itty bitty woes to anyone who would listen, and now his one attempt at getting his mother's attention entering the world of Kardashian business ventures isn't going as well as planned. Yikes!
At least things are looking up for sister Kim thanks to boyfriend Kanye West. She's even apparently scored an invite (thanks to the tiny rapper) to the Met Gala after being blacklisted by Anna Wintour last year. Now, whatever will she wear? That's the bigggest fear question!
If you're not watching Duck Dynasty, you're really missing out on fun-filled, family-friendly, drama-free "reality" television. However, I'm guessing that the majority of you ARE watching because season three's one hour finale was record-breaking. A&E's gem garnered 9.6 million viewers making it the most watched show on Wednesday night, blowing normal competitors like American Idol and Survivor out of the water.
Entertainment Weekly has the numbers, and it's truly phenomenal. American Idol only had a 3.3 rating on Wednesday, with Survivor scoring a 2.9 rating. The Robertson's series averaged 8.4 million total viewers per episode this season which is up 95% from its sophomore season, delivering a 4.3 rating among adults 18-49. Clearly, Soncie has been spreading the word to get folks to watch her beloved Si! Numbers like this have catapulted the series to into ratings gold, making it the cable's most watched reality show so far this year. If that wasn't enough, Duck Dynasty is the second most watched show (reality or otherwise!) behind AMC's Walking Dead. Way to go, Robertsons, and keep it coming!
To celebrate the monumentous occasion, A&E tweeted the above picture. It's proof positive that you can never, ever have too much camo.
TELL US-ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT THE ROBERTSONS DOMINATED AMERICAN IDOL?
Hey Jenelle Evans, if you scream it loud enough, someone may believe you! The Teen Mom 2 star is trying to convince anyone who will listen that she is clueless (at least she's not lying about that part!) about how heroin got into her house.
You may recall that the reality star was arrested on Tuesday for possession of heroin and Percocet…oh, and assault. I've come to the conclusion that the authorities in North Carolina have a box labeled "and assault" that they are trained to check whenever a Jenelle arrest occurs. I swear, this chick could be collared for jay walking and an assault would be involved…as she'd probably threaten to push other pedestrians into oncoming traffic. Geez.
I'll be honest, I think the entire cast ofReal Housewives of New York needs to be revamped…and STAT. I was actually excited that Aviva Drescher and all of her neuroses wouldn't be returning, but of course Bravo had to pull a fast one on all of us! It looks like Pinot Singer will have someone to spar with after all!
While I'm not at all shocked that Bravo would pull a last minute rabbit out of its hat, I do have to commend Aviva for what she has been doing recently regarding the tragedy in Boston. I may not like to watch her on my mindless reality circuit (seriously, it's like nails on a chalkboard), I do believe that she always has the best (although often misguided) of intentions.
Cue the veiled attempts to sweep the ugliness that is Basketball Wives under the rug! Forget all about wine-bottle hurling, table jumping, and rotten fish pranks, Shaunie O'Neal is morphing from being a puppet master for the violent antics of others into a legitimate do-gooder. More power to her!
Even better? She's teaming with everyone's favorite (props to you, Taylor Armstrong!) legitimate doctor, Dr. Charles Sophy, to make it happen. Look out, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder! Shaunie has a cause, and it's focused (no pun intended) on you! I kid, I kid. Kudos to Shaunie for what she's doing to help the less fortunate who have children suffering from ADHD.
