What is it about rites of passage when it comes to reality stars? If they aren't releasing their own cookbook, they're getting stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. I guess there are more ways than one to maintain notoriety once a show finishes filming for the season!
And another one bites the dust. Let's face it, the marriages that endure in light of reality television success are far outnumbered by those that fail. Even the unions that seem the strongest out of the limelight tend to seem cursed the second one (or both!) of the couple allows cameras to film their every move! The most recent victim of this phenomenon is Basketball Wives: LA's star Maylasia Pargo.
Malaysia and soon-to-be-ex husband Jannero Pargo were married in 2006. The reality star claims that she and the Charlotte Hornets NBA player have been separated since December of 2012. I guess that would explain why he's never featured on the show!
It's the battle of the VH1 reality stars! Not only are they feuding on their individual shows, two from different shows are now battling it out on Twitter. I'm sure that Mona Scott Young is laughing all the way to the bank these days!
Both Basketball Wives: LA and Love & Hip Hop have participants who recognize that drama is key to staying relevant. The more fighting and upheaval the better! BBW: LA's newbie Sundy Carter is learning quickly how things work. Not only was there a brawl at the season three reunion, but now Sundy is facing off with Erica Mena on social media. Yup, sounds about right!
This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charmreunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed.
On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through theReal Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.
And with a tweet, she was gone! The insanity that is Basketball Wives: L.A. is down one crazy lady…even though she leaves much crazier co-stars in her wake! Draya Michele announced via Twitter that she has quit. In fact, the most recently aired episode was her last.
What is Malaysia Pargo going to do being the only voice of reason left? I feel for her. It seems that Draya could no longer stomach her story line which revolved around her budding relationship with NFL star Orlando Scandrick. Unfortunately for Draya, Orlando had a romance with Wacky Jackie Christie's daughter before meeting the reality star/video vixen/bikini designer. It's made things a bit awkward for Dray this season.
