VH1's Hollywood Exes returned for a second season this week and made an impressive mark with 1.7 million viewers tuning in to watch Nicole Murphy and company.
Real Housewives of Orange County and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta both reached major milestones this week, logging their largest audiences this season! Our screeching ladies of the ski hill hit 2.168 million watchers, although Bravo stakes claim on that number being 2.2 million in their new press release. Kirk, Rasheeda and company surged upward again this week to hit 3.49 million viewers!
Take a peek below to see the viewer numbers since the premiere of the latest seasons of RHOC and L&HH ATL.
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY THE VIEWER INCREASES? WHAT DO YOU THINK IS DRIVING THE INTEREST?
Getting married in the near future? Got nothing to do next weekend and money to burn? Is it your lifelong dream to hang out on the periphery of reality stars? Need some new Gretchen Christine Boo-tay products? Well, I've got just thing for you!
Having been on the show since the franchise's inception, we've seen Vicki go through many phases (and faces this season!) with her marriage, her kids, and her co-stars. In all that time, she has ALWAYS had something to say…and she usually gets the last word!
Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was giving me flashbacks of the Bill Clinton trial. It was all a buncha semantics, except with Housewives mumbo-jumbo. "I did not say they were having sex, they were just in bed." "I didn't say it was a threesome" "I've never had multiple partners." "You have a different guest role on Malibu Country." Whatever the case: "Uh Oh! Somebody's lyyyyyying!" (Adrienne Maloof voice).
Lydia McLaughlin tried to take her new friends to her old country, Canada, for some good old fashion skiing fun at Whistler. Truly showing she's a sparkly-eyed, pixie winged novice for all things Housewives she predicted it would be drama free. Why? Did she think the negative temperatures would freeze their drama capacitors off? Nope, if anything the cold made them extra twitchy and jumpy and turned the trip into a true The Shining nightmare. Except Lydia was the only person trapped on the mountain and unable to escape.
Good thing Alexis Bellinogave Lydia a special, drama-debunking gift! Alexis has decided she'll come on the trip under one condition – she can carry a concealed weapon. A Swaorvski crystal studded bible! Alexis gives Lydia a matching bible. Um… I love these two; they truly are Jesus Barbie and her little sister Bible Skipper! I hope Barbie doesn't wear Alexis Couture to teach Sunday School.
The first caller asks 'how could Gretchen not think Lauri was insinuating a threesome?' Lauri defended herself, "I was very clear that when I walked into the room, they were just under the covers. I couldn't see what they were doing. It wasn't the first time, it was the second time, same people. I didn't want to say that it was a sexual relationship because I didn't know. So I made it very clear to her at the time. I wanted her to make sure that I wasn't positive."
Tamra Barney cast Simon aside and found her true-true love in Eddie, but she and Simon still have three kids together. And Simon does not want his children to have anything to do with Real Housewives of Orange County – or any its spinoffs! Is Simon smarter than I remember him being or just spiteful?
“Simon has refused to allow his children to appear on the Real Housewives of Orange County since his split from Tamra and he wasn’t about to change his view for the wedding,” a production insider dished to RadarOnline about Tamra's upcoming 3-part wedding special.
"Producers of the show had approached him to allow the kids to appear on the show, Tamra’s OC Wedding. The kids were even offered financial compensation. But Simon wouldn’t budge. He blocked it.” Tamra's oldest son Ryan will appear in the series, however.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star shares her hot body secrets and no surprise it involves junk food deprivation (laaaame!) and exercises (laaaamer!). Didn't Lydia McLaughlin accuse her of not eating?
Gretchen says her road to body acceptance and health has been difficult. “I’ve struggled in the past with having an eating disorder way back in the day in high school and going through yoyo dieting and trying every pill on the market," Gretchen confesses to RadarOnline. "But none of it worked [because] I wasn’t feeding my body or taking care of myself." Wasn't this Alexis' storyline already?
