MTV's BUCKWILD premiered Thursday night. Did you watch?
While it's safe to say SenatorJoe Manchin probably didn't host a viewing party, a decent amount of people couldn't resist the mudding, dump truck swimming, tire rolling, mattress slinging, and redneck sexy times. BUCKWILD pulled in 2.49 million viewers and a 1.4 rating over its back-to-back premieres.
BUCKWILD's Executive Producer Barry Poznicktweeted:
Comparing premieres, BUCKWILD outperformed Jersey Shore, which debuted to 1.375 million in 2009, by over one million viewers. Whether or not BUCKWILD becomes the ratings juggernaut that was Jersey Shore remains to be seen.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Golnesa "GG" GharachedaghiandAsa Soltan Rahmatihave had several nasty fights on season two ofShahs of Sunset. Already – we're only five episodes in! While we all know most reality TV stories are well behind "real time," it doesn't sound like Asa and GG have resolved their issues. With Twitter as her audience, GG has been bashing Asa left and right. Also, Lilly Ghalichi - by popular demand – recently shared a picture of herself wearing almost no makeup!
GG's fans rallied around her, tweeting, "Yay! She's a phony anyway your baby would be way cuter" and "She only got pregnant to become relevant again, that ho lost the spotlight to better people!"
While GG didn't mention any names, one of her followers assumed Lilly. "@GolnesaGG, you just put @LillyGhalichi on blast! I do think she wants to be like Kim K too, but she don't need a baby, she's has Coconut!" GG was quick to set her straight, tweeting, "I wasn't talking about Lilly. And I said that I want to get pregnant."

That said, according to executive producer John Stevens, BUCKWILD isn't all about the mud racing, body licking, squirrel hunting, reckless driving, and garbage throwing you've seen in the previews. (though that does sound lovely)
John says, "Look at any TV or movie trailer out there, and it will grab your attention with the most outrageous stuff. That's just a formula that broadcasters and movie companies have used forever. I don't think that's indicative of what the show is. BUCKWILD has a lot of wild moments to it, but I think it's got tons of heart, and I think you're going to see some really fun kinds of relationships."
MTV mirrors John's sentiment, stating, "The BUCKWILD cast's bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!"
Last week on Top Chef Seattle, the cheftestants harvested fresh oysters and cooked for the Rat City Roller Girls. While everyone wished they could have voted Josie Malave off the Top Chef island, Bart Vandaele was eliminated for serving beyond bland food. I told those suckers that they'd regret not letting Josie sink in the mud, but they didn't listen to me.
This week's episode opens with Sheldon Simeon sharpening his knives and Stefan Richter slathering on wrinkle cream. Funny. Padma Lakshmi introduces this week's special guest, master blade smith Bob Kramer, who makes custom knives that sell for $500 an inch. That's crazy!
Bob cuts through two ropes to demonstrate just how awesome a $4,000 knife is. Sheldon begs to give him a hug; Lizzie Binder appears as if she hasn't slept in weeks; Stefan doesn't look too impressed. Perhaps Stefan would have cracked a smile or raised an eyebrow if Bob had busted out $4,000 wrinkle cream.
Around 5:30 this morning, Jenelle reactivated her Twitter account and tweeted, "About this whole Taylor situation…. Courtland has told Taylor to please leave us alone and she gets all mad and posts tweets. That's all! I have NOT been staying at my moms either I've been living with him and been there everyday so no Court hasn't seen her at ALL, lmao. And I hate that f-king c-t dude… Idk why she says we 'get along' and 'I'm being played' becuz she wants the D. It's immature… Stop."
Jenelle added, "if there was a video it would of already been posted. She's mad cuz we recorded her on the phone and told her lmfao."
This afternoon, Taylor tweeted, "Y'all will see the video chill I'm not a lair i always back up what i say" and "Okay I'm upload something right now one of the recording i got."
Either way, Lilly and Mercedes "MJ" Javid are bringing the drama, so don't expect the season 2 newcomer to go away anytime soon. This week on Shahs of Sunset, Lilly and MJ managed to insult one another without even sharing a scene. In Bravo's eyes… that's talent… and job security.
When Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi wanted to gossip about Lilly, MJ implied that talking about Lilly wasn't worth her time. On the show, she said, "In about five minutes, Lilly is going to get shipped back to the welfare line she was standing in before she decided to invade my life."
In response to MJ's jab, Lillysaid, "If I had made this comment about MJ, it would be a HUGE deal that the skinny rich girl is picking on the chubby middle class girl. But, the other way around people find it acceptable? Double standard. Either way, MJ, I could buy your whole life and donate it to charity for fun if I wanted to, let's be real. The fact that I am self-made is something I am extremely proud of; you should pay attention and learn a few things from me."
