After initially being a huge hit, ratings for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are sagging and the show has become stale. After all, for all their red neck eccentricities the family is pretty normal. Kinda. But are Mama June and Sugar Bear faking their cheating scandal for a storyline?
Sources share that the Boos Boos may have sold out to pressure to save their declining reality show and that producers helped orchestrate Sugar Bear‘s cheating to give the show a more exciting direction. Especially now that daughter Alana is done with pageants, the drama has been pretty lackluster. Season 1 averaged about 3 million viewers an episode, but the most recent fourth season had a season high of 1.8 million viewers an episode.
Publicly Sugar maintains that yes, he did make a profile on a online dating site, but that he “never acted on anything.” And “absolutely would never” cheat on June. But in secret he confirms that the scandal was a set-up – and Sugar is furious that he left himself be talked into such shenanigans!
Kendra Wilkinson has had quite a year – she welcomed daughter Alijah Mary and almost immediately afterward rumors surfaced that her husband of five years Hank Baskett had been cheating with a transsexual model!
Kendra reportedly freaked out as news of the affair and reacted by kicking Hank out of their home and flushing her wedding rings down the toilet. Kendra reveals that she first heard of Hank’s alleged indiscretions while the couple was at home. “My agent calls, asking, ‘Is Hank around you right now?'” Kendra recalls. “I was playing around and said, ‘No.’ Hank leaned in and I said, ‘Why? What’s going on?’ “
Kendra shares that she felt the bottom drop out from her life – and although Hank repeatedly denied the affair, she was in a tailspin. And luckily Kendra On Top cameras were there to capture it all!
Leaving her G-to-the-eeya runway walking days of Andy Cohen‘s obsession behind her, Gia has been focusing on music and dance. And now the 13-year-old just announced that together with two friends she has formed her own group. Can we say: Future Kandi Burruss!
Leave it to LeAnn Rimes to cause a scene wherever she goes! This weekend LeAnn was in Phoenix where she sat in the audience for an intimate David Gray performance. And unfortunately LeAnn forgot that DAVID was the star of the show!
The LeAnn & Eddie star happened to be seated in front of KNIX radio host Matt McAllister, where she talked through the entire performance and sang loudly to all the songs. David must have heard her because he invited LeAnn to come up on stage and sing a duet with him. But LeAnn seemed to forget that she was only invited to perform for ONE song because according to Matt she continued to belt out songs from her seat in the audience. Well – at least LeAnn can actually sing (and she knew all the words to every song)!

After liquidating (or having a trustee liquidate?) her wild-boar infested St. Tropez property, and attempting to sell her Colorado home, Sonja is now desperately trying to hang onto her NYC town home without selling it to satisfy her multi-million dollar judgement.
We’ve heard some gossip that the season is so tame, with all the ladies getting along, that Bravo is worried this season will be another dud – despite them bringing in high name soap stars like Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson.
In other news we’ve heard that Brandi has been fighting with everyone from Rambles one day (something she denies), to sister Splits McHairFlips the next. It’s topsy-turvy over there – must be all the fillers in the water.
