Plagued with really lackluster ratings this season and several cast members looking to quit, Basketball Wives is desperately floundering.
The fifth season was all about Evelyn Lozada's marital breakdown from Chad Johnson and Tami Roman changing her image. Kind of. With the season ending, producers approached the ladies about filming the reunion, but Evelyn reportedly balked! Sources say she is sick of discussing her very brief albeit disastrous marriage, plus she's not getting along with any of her castmates and is scared of secrets they may spill!
Sources tell TMZ VH1 then decided to cancel the whole reunion after Evelyn refused to cooperate and filming will not be rescheduled. The other wives just have nothing exciting going on and have nothing to talk about so without Evelyn's drama there basically is no point. Producers felt there simply wasn't enough material.
Us Weekly has the first footage of Kim's third engagement (her second staged for a reality show and also her second Lorraine Schwartz ring!), and it features Kanye dropping down on one knee, Kim accepting, and a flood of K-fam members and hangers-on (Jonathan Cheban!) rushing the field.
Yesterday it was reported that the two are locked in a custody battle and Pauly believes baby mama Amanda Markert is unfit so he wants full custody. He's trying to get a Las Vegas judge to decide in his favor, meanwhile Amanda filed a custody suit in New Jersey!
The former Jersey Shore star also believes Amanda is an unstable fameho who was looking to get knocked up so she could score 18 years of child support. Supposedly supporting this is a photo she posted of five-month-old daughter Amabella (WTH with that name, people?!) surrounded by hundred dollar bills. And some tweets she posted announcing she just wants like soooo many baby clothes and costumes (COSTUMES people?!) for her baby girl.
Now the former VIP Hooters waitress (seriously people?!) is trying to sell some text messages allegedly from Pauly in which he tried to convince Amanda to have an abortion and said he would pay for it.
Joanna tweeted that the reunion was "brutal". The two former friends had a falling out over Lisa's friendship with Adriana de Moura, and Joanna kicked her out of her wedding party!
The drama came to a serious head at the reunion when Joanna allegedly revealed something seriously scandalous about Lisa's past. And Lisa is suing mad! An insider tells All About TRH Lisa is seeking to file a defamation suit against Joanna.
Just yesterday Pauly D announced he was the proud papa of a five-month-old girl. The mama of whom is a one night stand Vegas hookup!
The baby mama in question is named Amanda Markertaccording to TMZ. She's a Hooters waitress who also has another kid. And therein lies the problem – the former Jersey Shore star claims the 25-year-old Amanda is using him for money and he wants custody of daughter Amabella. Pauly believes that Amanda is unfit based on both her occupation and her double single mother status!
Both Pauly and Amanda have filed court docs against each other filing for custody. Pauly has reportedly never met his daughter, but DNA tests confirm he is definitely the father – and he's looking for FULL custody. Amanda is of course also seeking full custody, plus demanding child support. Sources say Pauly is not contesting support as he wants to take care of his daughter, but he also wants a relationship with her. That's sweet.
I know you all are going to be soooo surprised by what you're about to read, but Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kanye West was filmed for reality TV! I knew pimpmoma Kris Jenner wasn't going to let the ultimate publicity stunt, ratings ploy go to waste – especially with interest waning in America's First Family of Reality Television Atrocities!
In the wake of several unfortunate Kardashian events, including allegations that Kanye would never propose to Kim and that their relationship was fake (I believe it – at least from his perspective!) Kanye planned a big honking proposal – with Keeping Up With The Kardashian kameras in tow!
A member of the orchestra dishes that she was paid four-times her normal rate and required to sign a non-disclosure agreement before performing at the Kimye Proposal Show. The musicians knew 2 days in advance what Kanye was secretly planning and snagged $1k each for the gig.
Last night on I Dream Of NeNe, "bridemaid" drama continued between Marlo Hampton and Diana Gowins, except Diana got the memo loud and clear that she better shape up and get on Team Worship NeNe Leakes! The ladies also traveled to Cancun for NeNe's bachelorette party. Of course no one behaved accordingly.
Things started out fine. In the van from the airport everyone was joking around pretending to smoke twizzlers and then deep throat them. Marlo excelled in that arena. Once they arrived they discovered a soccer team was sharing their resort which was fine for some of the ladies, namely Dawn!
The jollies continued as the ladies participated in the nipslip olympics. First was some sort of pseudo surf waves which caused Jennifer Williams (I forgot how lovely she is) and Diana to lose precious small bits of bikini coverage over and over again. Thank you for blurry modesty bars. From the sidelines the other ladies cheered and snickered. Diana is really working overtime to prove she isn't the "president" but merely a humble servant. And she's fun too!
Did anyone think NeNe installed some sort of zapper in Diana and whenever she didn't follow the rules NeNe shocked her? She had a personality 180 this episode…
Apparently Rita Hayworth always took her hair dresser on vacation with her – and apparently Kenya Moore does too! That's just how the Gone With The Wind Fabulous among us roll.
Krayonce recently announced on instagram that she and Miss. Lawrence (of She By SheBrokeWeave Singeing fame) are on vacay in Mexico. I hope Kenya brought her fire extinguisher to prepare for any hair-related incidents! Or maybe she could #twirl a fire out.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star also flaunted her booty in some bikini pool shots! Photos of Kenya rocking her Mexican assets are below!
