Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is dominating the ratings on Monday nights! The show's ratings climbed again (seriously, this is like the Mt. Everest of reality shows here) and was the most watched cable show that night!
3.6 million people tuned into the Kirk Frost and Rasheeda's impending divorce and Joseline preparing to propose! Next week is the season finale, so we can only imagine what the viewer numbers will be!
However next week Gretchen straps on a Marilyn Monroe costume and sings a proposal to Slade. The girls are doing it for themselves in the marriage department on Monday nights!
Also, still hanging tough on Monday night is Bravo's freshman reality show Below Deck. I have to admit I'm secretly loving the show. And it looks like I'm not the only person. 1.3 million viewers tuned into the fourth episode!
Take a peek below to see the viewer numbers since the premiere of the latest seasons of RHOC and L&HH ATL.

TELL US – WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON MONDAY NIGHT? ARE YOU CHECKING OUT BELOW DECK?
In her Bravo blog, Lydia discusses returning from the Great White North to a sense of normalcy. She writes, "Coming off of the girls trip to Canada, it was good to get back to our normal routines. This episode really showed all of our personal lives rather then our relationships with one another. . .and I kind of liked that." You know, of all these women, I think Lydia is the only one who truly does enjoy being normal and drama-free!
SeeHeather Dubrow is like all actress-y and important-y and stuff and she was gifted with a premiere role on the show. And then low and behold Gretchen Rossi was maybe possibly potentially called about a guest spot that was then canceled from a now canceled show. Ya follow?
Anyway Gretchen is all shades of bleached and miffed that Heather doesn't think she's special enough to be on HER show, so she sent her a snarky text telling her that. I mean, allegedly. And, of course, it depends on who you ask. So we've heard Gretchen's side of the story, now let's hear Heather's!
"I was pretty disappointed to see Gretchen read my text message to Slade with that rude "sing songy" voice," Heather writes. "It was interesting to me that she neglected to mention that I was answering HER question in that text," Heather begins.
Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was pretty boring. And by boring I mean tragic. And deafening. Gretchen Rossi tried to sing but she forgot to bring the big, pink plastic handbag holding her autotune with her. Oh the results were more tragic than a Made in Sweatshop plasticine Gretchen Christine handbag. Also plastic her face and now her lips. We'll discuss in a minute…
Moving on to other adventures in RHOC things, are still a mess betweenVicki Gunvalson and Brooks. And by a mess I mean Vicki's life and hair are sadly reflecting her inner life. Get a brush and comb things out. Seriously – get a smoothing serum too. And call Dr. V.
So let's begin… Gretchen has returned from Whistler and her friendship with Tamra Barney is as frozen and icy as her face. Did I mention her hair doesn't move either but it permanently looks wind swept? How? Mystery of science if I've ever seen one. Let's call Myth Busters!
Tamra Barney (the reality star now known as Tamra Judge) stopped by the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live and while she was hanging out she cleared up the Malibu Country misunderstandings, talked about having babies with Eddie Judge and more.
Andy started the show off rolling some of the tape from Gretchen Rossi's lunch with Alexis and asked Tamra if Gretchen has been overdoing the Botox because her face was so frozen. Tamra added, "It was like no emotion at all and this used to be her best friend. I kinda felt bad for Alexis."
They dove right in to address the Malibu Country role (again!) Tamra attempted to clear it up. "I think the whole story wasn't told. I think that Gretchen did get a call for a part that was not the part that Heather got, clearly. And I think there were some Beverly Hills housewives, Alexis was called. It was a role as an extra. So what happened was as soon as Heather got a main role, that extra role was canceled. But the thing is is that Gretchen kept up with "I got the role, I got the role" when there was no role to get. The role got shut down. Heather shut it down. So then Gretchen lied about it and said she got it."
On a recent episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge revealed a painful secret. While going through her divorce to high school sweetheart Darren Vieth, she tried to overdose on pills and Nyquil. Tamra's admission served to explain why she's so closed off and good at deflecting with her over-the-top antics. After the episode aired, her ex (father of her oldest son Ryan) is coming forward with accusations of cheating and theatrics. It looks like someone is ready to cash in their fifteen minutes! To be honest, I'm actually surprised we haven't heard from this dude sooner.
Of course, Tamra isn't one to sit by silently when someone is spreading rumors about her, so she's fighting back the way all good Bravo housewives do. That's right! She's calling him out on Twitter. I have a feeling that Darren is going to be no match for Tamra!
In an interview with Radar Online, Tamra's (first) ex-husband is speaking out over Tamra's accusations that he is partly to blame for what drove her to her first suicide attempt. Just like Tamra, Darren has a sharp tongue and doesn't hold back, so I can see where the pair possibly butted heads during their young union. He tells the site, “Tamra is a liar, a cheater and a bad mother to our son, Ryan, and she seemed to enjoy constant drama in her life because it lead to attention,” adding, “Tamra usually never tells the entire story, and this time is no different.” Wait, what? Tamra enjoys drama?
