The Monday reality TV viewer numbers are in and they're not too shabby!
Basketball Wives is back with a bang! The season 5 premiere episode pulled in 2.39 million viewers. Now let's just hope that the audience wasn't turned off by the hour long 'woe is Evelyn' fest. I don't mean to be cold hearted, but it was a bit much and I hope they don't plan to dwell in it all season.
I dunno what you call that sort of cry where no liquid emanates? I mean is it all the botox? At the very least I would expect wine to come out 'cause all they consume is wine. Well, that and bulls#*!.
So much happened last night – where to begin…
Well, let's all get this out of the way: Alexis Bellino talked about JIM BLOB's man part. It was the most awkward 2 minutes of television ever! She tripped and stumbled over a forced non sequitur about how he wears a size 14 shoe if you know what she's saying… EW! So that's how things started and if you can believe it they went downhill from there!
Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi were friends for literally less time than it takes to blow dry a set of blonde extensions and all of the sudden they're back to fighting about the same. old. ridiculous. things. Namely who's lying about what and whether or not Gretchen cheated on her first fiance. Do we care? Nope we don't but Bravo thinks we do…
In her Bravo blog, Tamra calls out Gretchen for refusing to let go of the past despite the fact that she hauled five-year-old photographs to the reunion!
It's probably a good thing Eddie Judge decided to open a gym and get out of the "legal business". I mean, that's saying he was ever in the legal business legally to begin with. Before hooking his wagon wheel toTamra Barney, Eddie was the manager of his father's law firm. Unfortunately he's being sued along with his father's law firm!
A source reached out to us to let us know that Eddie's behavior at his adoptive father's law firm was serious cause for concern.
Yeppers, old Ed-wino of the infamous Real Housewives of Orange County bathtub porn scene is being taken to court! An attorney who was formerly employed by the Judge Law Firm filed a suit against the firm for Wrongful Termination and Unfair Competition. According to the lawsuit, filed in California Superior Court, the attorney claims she was wrongfully terminated when she complained about unethical practices in the firm – namely that Eddie was practicing law without a license!
Fact: The friendship between Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney deteriorated just as quickly as it was rekindled. I think we've all figured out that Tamra's loyalty (what little of it she may have) lies with Vicki Gunvalson. And lie they do, according to Gretchen! Truth: I love Reba McIntyre but I am not surprised that something called Malibu Country didn't last. It's lived longer in this feud than it ever could have on cable. Fact: Bravo really needs to put a length restriction on their blogs. Truth: I tried to just give y'all the highlights!
In her Bravo blog, Gretchen writes about the infamous Jay Photolou situation, "Fact: The man the women continue to bring up I took to court and won seven counts against. In order to find someone guilty of punitive damages the jury needs to find that person acted with fraud, malice, or intent. Furthermore the claims he tried to bring against me for defaming him, false light, and slander, the jury found in favor of me and not of him."
She continues, "Fact: Tamrasays in one breath at the reunion that she still doesn't know all the details of what really happened between me and this man but then five seconds later she is whipping out pictures and seems to think she knows exactly what happened between us. She can't even keep her stories straight. She continues to challenges Lauri [Peterson]'s accusations saying 'If she didn't see them in bed together then she really doesn't know what happened.'"
After surviving (just barely) her first reunion, Lydia admits she isn't proud of her behavior and she isn't sure this environment of "constant attacks and debating" is for her! She also explains why her magazine chose not to feature Heather Dubrow on the cover, but she does offer Heather an apology for being snarky. Apparently the two are still friends… for now!
"So that wasn't fun! The ladies tried to warn me that my my first reunion would be intense, which is an understatement! I don't think you could ever be mentally prepared for a day like that," Lydia begins in her Bravo blog.
VH1 continued to dominate Monday night withT.I. and Tiny (3.707 million) and Marrying the Game (2.994 million). Consider us impressed!
On Bravo, part one (of three!) of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion garnered 2.128 million viewers, which is down from last week's season high of 2.386 million. Will you tune in next week to see Gretchen, Heather, Alexis, Vicki, Tamra, and Lydia hash out more of 2009's season 8's drama?
It appears that all isn't well in Vodkaville, and Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson could be back on the receiving end of a law suit claiming fraud and breach of contract. The case, which was previously dismissed, is reportedly about to be re-filed by Vicki's former partner in Vodkas by Vicki, Robert Williamson, III. In it, major allegations are waged against the reality star and her off-again-on-again (off-again) beau Brooks Ayers.
Of course, it doesn't help matters that the relationship status between Vicki and Broke Brooks has gone from lukewarm to non-existent to down right contentious, at least those are the rumors! If this is the end of Vicki's vodkas, however are we going to get to taste Slade's bacon variety?
