With the BET Awards happening this Sunday, perhaps a lot less people were interested in reality TV. Unfortunately ratings dropped again for RHONJ. Only 2.195 million people watched the battle of Rosie Vs. Teresa Giudice!
I'm going to go ahead and apologize in advance for this blog post because I know I'm going to offend people with my bluntness and stupidity…even people who roll their eyes at the mention of all things Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, little KompassNorth, and the child that is most certainly NOT America's Baby.
First things first…a quick disclaimer: just because I doubt that Kim and the tiny rapper's newborn has yet to sit up, say her first word, moonwalk, or buy her first pair of Manolos does not mean that I am in any way making fun of the baby's development. That said, the founder of the Pussycat Dolls is claiming the child is already giggling up a storm. False. Not false because I am snarky and Kim irks me, but false because I took more than my share of child development classes. I don't doubt that gas is making North make some super precious faces, but she's not actually laughing.
Oh Kris Jenner! Before the ratings for her upcoming talk show even have a chance to go south, the pimpmomager is taking every opportunity to chat about new granddaughter North while on a press tour to promote her new daytime venture.
E! shares that Kris was absolutely gushing over daughter Kim Kardashian's newborn with tiny rapper Kanye West on the TODAY show. Unfortunately, I missed it as I have made good on my promise to boycott my former favorite morning show after they aired Kris chatting about breast implants instead of observing a moment of silence for 9/11. Have you seen GMA? Loves it!
All three shows saw an increase in viewers this week after suffering some downward trends each week since their premieres on June 2nd. RHONJ was back up to 2.41 million viewers tuning in and Princesses Long Island bumped up to 925,000 after hitting just 780,000 last week. Keeping Up with the Kardashians only ticked up a bit, from 2.1 to 2.2 million.
Below we have the breakdown of each week since their premieres.
As if the name North West wasn't bad enough (although I'm sure she'll be great at following directions! Ba dum ching!), the news surrounding Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby's arrival is getting more and more ridiculous. A push present that could pay off my student loans four times over and three birthing suites? Geez Yeezy.
Apparently, Kanye did, in fact, put a ring on it. However, unfortunately for Kim, it wasn't of the engagement variety. They'll save the wedding hype once all the attention over Compass the baby begins to fade.
