If you were hoping the Kardashians would fade into obscurity following a year of famewhore antics gone wrong, think again! They’re back and apparently as big as ever. According to the ratings, the Sunday night season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians hauled in an impressive number of viewers.
Nearly 3 million (yes, I said million, not hundred) people tuned in to catch a glimpse of Kimmie Kake‘s butt, Khloe Kardashian‘s paternity drama, and a Kanye West sighting. I personally watch for Bruce Jenner‘s mutated face. I keep hoping and hoping to see some semblance of normalcy return to the rubber mask that has eclipsed his head.
Most shocking, the ratings for KUWTK are up 16% since last season’s premiere. And surprisingly the show did really well in the coveted 18-49 year-old-demographic, with 1.5M women making up the viewership last Sunday according to The Hollywood Reporter. I thought you people were boycotting?!

Last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After felt like the end of an era. Bethenny Frankel rehashed the past and she and Jason Hoppy seemed to be finally moving forward in a positive direction. We were treated to several montages of Bethenny’s life on reality TV over the years and although this isn’t the finale it seems to be setting the stage to tie up a bunch of loose ends in preparation for next week’s final farewell.
Things begin with Jason and Bethenny visiting their new apartment, which is still under construction, but finally seems to be moving along. Bethenny is having some issues with the TV eclipsing the bar and since this is quite literally an apartment built on booze, sweat, and tears – Skinnygirl needs an altar.
Really though, she’s right. Not only does Bethenny Frankel Hoppy love her some libations, but an homage to the glorious liquor gods who made her rich seems fitting. I also think she needs a shrine to Andy Cohen.
We are treated to a montage of Skinnygirl over the years from Bethenny convincing the ever-so-classy ladies of Real Housewives of New Yorkto try a Skinnygirl margarita to learning she’d sold the brand to BeamGlobal.
Next up, Bethenny and Bryn head to Spanish class. Bethenny talks about wanting Bryn to have all the opportunities she didn’t have – namely parents that love and care for her and want to be involved in her life. Bethenny marvels at how perfect Bryn is and how unique. She describes Bryn as her own signature brand and the life of the party. Bethenny tells us her priorities have seriously changed since becoming a mommy and she wouldn’t want to miss a thing. Which is nice. She does seem totally enthralled with Bryn. I hope she always remembers that business is just business.
Side note: I love that Bethenny and Jason walk Bryn so many places.
It’s montage galore up in here! There’s another montage of Bryn‘s life and Bethenny‘s pregnancy. I cannot believe how big Bryn has gotten and how tiny Bethenny has become. Time really has flown.
TMZ is reporting that three different networks are “very interested” in a signing him for a talk show deal. Allegedly hoping to nab the former late night host are NBC, along with two other major broadcast networks.
HollywoodLife has learned that both Fox and TBS are competing to have Arsenio host a late night show. The source reports that Fox is considering a weekly show which would air on Saturday nights. However TBS is considering pairing Arsenio’s new gig with Conan O’Brien’s show on weeknights.
There has even been talks of trying a daytime/night time show; one that will air in the morning and then replay at night.
Apparently no matter which network he goes with, Arsenio’s new show won’t be airing until the fall.
Aviva Drescher is coming out swinging on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York. The cast newbie is not mincing words or trying to play nice She succinctly calls Pinot Singer “white trash” in one clip of the series. Aviva is much more than a housewife – the former lawyer is now a philanthropist and mother of four. And she also has a prosthetic leg.
Speaking to the NY Post, Aviva describes meeting her current husband Reed and combining their families Brady Bunch style. They met in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond after painful divorces. “The kids started playing with each other, and he said, ‘It’s tough being a single dad,’ ” Aviva recalls. “Let’s say we took the ‘beyond’ to another level.” Aviva and Reed now have added two more children to their brood.
Aviva reveals that she lost her leg in a farming accident when she was a child, which has taught her to be tough and straight forward. Aviva also shares that she has two different artificial legs – one for heels and one for flats! Ok, that’s kind of awesome.
Oh lawdy, last night was a night of meltdowns wasn’t it?Real Housewives of New Jersey was an emotional hot mess of whining, tantrums, crying, cursing, bickering, double talk and fat talk. Sometimes we all freak out – even if we are a forty-something father of four or a ten-year-old girl or an overweight twenty-four year old woman. You know what – we’re all just people at the end of the day.
But before we get to tantrums, let’s talk butt cheeks. There were a lot of those weren’t there? There were also bras and tampons. And I learned something important today that I never particularly wanted to know… Teresa Giudice didn’t wear a tampon until she was 27. Did she never go to the beach on her period until she was married?
So things begin in the car with Teresa and Joe Giudice. She tells him about the pool party and he starts screaming and cursing about how much he hates her family and will throw them out of his house and kill people. It was horrible. Juicy needs an intravenous drip of prozac and an anger management coach. Teresa was mortified – as well she should be – dump this loser please. He’s bad for her image and her self-esteem.

On the first season of Real Housewives of Miami there was only one person who struck the viewer’s interest: Mama Elsa – Marysol Patton‘s psychic, delightfully charming, and very injected mama.
Season two of RHOM is slated to return this fall and with that so will Mama Elsa and her equally injected daughter. In a recent interview with Refinery 29, Marysol talks growing up and how the show has impacted her life. Hopefully it put her in touch with a reputable plastic surgeon! Paging Dr. Paul!
Last season Marysol, who owns her own successful PR firm The Patton Group, emerged as RHOM’s resident career girl, but Marysol shares she always wanted to be a wife and mother. “My parents told me that I wanted to be an attorney, so that’s what I assumed I wanted to be, even though I didn’t know what that meant since I was very little,” Marysol shares. “I think I always wanted to be a wife and a mother. I never thought about being a career woman when I was a little girl.”
On last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the family feud continued. Teresa Giudice andJoe Gorga exchanged heated words at Kathy Wakile‘s pool party and family and friends remained divided over who is to blame for all the issues. It seems there will never be a resolution between the Gorgadice families and it’s made worse by Joe Giudice palpable hatred towards Teresa’s family.
As we all know the issues between Teresa and Melissa Gorga are nothing new. Reality Tea’s source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Teresa’s family has never approved of Joe‘s marriage to Melissa and it drove a considerable wedge between the family – and that Joe G-to-the-Iudice calling Melissa a “tramp” on last week’s episode is a sentiment shared by the whole family!
“Teresa was used to always having her brother Joe around and when he got married, yes things changed,” our source shares of the family back story. “They had a bond like no other brother and sister I have ever seen. It was actually pretty odd. They were obsessed with each other. Teresa put her brother first, always.”
From the NBC press release: “Kim has grown closer to her loving family than she ever was before, Kourtney and Scott are preparing Mason for the arrival of his little sister, Khloé strives to spend time with everyone she loves, Kylie and Kendall have discovered new ways to step out from the shadows of their older sisters, Rob is finding his own way in business, and Bruce and Kris go through a rough patch after Bruce reveals that he feels taken for granted.”
The Kardashians will also continue to expand their empire by opening DASH boutique and pimping more products than ever. Oh, joy.
