Bravo is busy rolling out a ton of new shows and heavily promoting some old favorites. They've recently had some trouble in the Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff department though!
Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss are arguing off-screen over legal issues, and they are also fighting it out to save their spinoffs from being canned next season. Bravo, who apparently loves them some Kandi (probably because she is on the hugely successful RHOA), moved The Kandi Factory to Sunday nights in an effort to boost viewership.
Last week the move worked and TKF received a bump in ratings.There was also a fist fight… Unfortunately it's only temporary! Bravo Ratings says that this week's showing didn't even rank in cable's Top 100 shows. Even worse, this Sunday's episode garnered only 596,000 viewers, down 32% from last week and "rated lower than three of the four occasions it aired on Tuesdays." Ouch. I think we can expect that one won't be renewed! This weekend is the season finale.
The Countess No More admits she is still battling with Bravo about re-signing for the sixth season and advises the network that they better recognize her worth!
“I’ve been an instrumental character on the show from the beginning, so I want to be a part of the new season,” LuAnnshares with In Touch. “I’ve been from the beginning and I love it.” And for her dedication LuAnn expects compensation. Other reports claim LuAnn was willing to accept a pay cut in exchange for returning to the show!
Shortly after the talk show host did a scathing tell-all about how her marriage was a mistake and Jason made her feel like a bad person, sources say he wants the court to impose a gag order on Bethenny to prevent her discussing their on-going divorce!
Jason “has had enough and asked his lawyers to go to court asking the judge to impose a gag order on the entire divorce proceedings," a source tells RadarOnline. "He doesn’t want Bethenny discussing the divorce in the media."
The ladies were in a standoff with Bravo last week and after harried negotiations reportedly all of them re-signed for the sixth season, which began filming today.
Pinot Singer, who washed up on the beach of yesteryear's fashions and wine dregs, alerted us on twitter that she and Sonja Morgan were putting their camera-ready faces on and getting ready to turtle time us to death. I. can't. wait.
Tamra Barney accused Vicki 'Work Work Work' Gunvalson of not doing her *gasp* job when it came to their joint venture Wines by Wives. In the episode Tamra presented the portrait of a hardworking and devoted employee while Vicki pretty much ignored her responsibilities to focus on her solo projects.
Vicki is so not taking this laying down. Only one person walks all over Vicki – and is names rhymes with Crooks Scares! Vicki is speaking out in her Bravo blog about their disastrous "work" trip to Malibu and defending herself. And it comes as no surprise that she is putting Tamra on blast!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta elder merely said what we all know to be true – that Melissa observed Teresa's fame and "success" from Real Housewives of New Jersey and wanted a piece of the pignoli cookie, but then she came on the show to try and usurp Mrs. Giudice's Flipping Throne. And mama don't play when it comes to who wears the designer pants in the Housewives family!
Speaking the truth always makes waves so Brandi and Melissa are both fighting back! Melissa, who will be part of her own WWHL special this Sunday (featuring all the S5 Jersey girls), suggests that NeNe is a little scared of the newbies nipping at her heels.
Let's all give thanks… Don't Be Tardy style. And what does that entail? Purchasing a pre-packed, pre-sliced turkey from a designer clothing store. More on this later.
On last night's episode Kim Zolciak's daughters were forced to deal with the Sins of the Wig, whose own parents have turned against her in the media over her alleged famewhoring. It was actually sad.
Things begin with Kim and her girls making something called "slutty brownies". They actually sound amazing. Brielle and Arianna want to make brownies from scratch, Kim argues for boxed mix especially in light of the fact that she doesn't even have sugar in her pantry.
