It’s official (again): Kim Kardashian is getting paid much more than she deserves the rest of the world! Well, the reality television world, at least. Forbes just released their list of highest paid reality stars, and 36-year old Kim once again tops the heap, coming in at $51 million. Yes, that is a five-one in front of that million!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star seems to be raking in the dough not from her reality tv appearances, but from parlaying her image into a wildly profitable Hollywood mobile game, her app (she has an APP!?), social media endorsements, and “Kimojis.” What’s the “Kimoji” for “the world is coming to an end, so I’m just gonna sip on my tea and watch it implode”? Because, I think I need that one right now.
In very sad news, Nico Scholly’s younger brother, Tristen, passed away. The Below Deck star shared the tragic news last night on social media.
“My younger brother of 21 is now an angle [sic]. So please pray for my family #chicago#belowdeck#familycomesfirst,” shared Nico at 11:01 last night. Nico, who was in Florida prior to Tristen’s death, hails from Chicago.
Oh boy. Get ready for an epic smackdown! Taking no prisoners in his blog, Captain Lee berates the entire crew of Below Deck for their frat party behavior on this week’s episode. If he would have seen their antics real-time, Lee assures viewers they would have all (well, almost all) been fired! Alas, he has only Bravo footage to rely upon now. But that’s enough to make his blood boil, apparently.
Lee begins, “Well if you thought I was pissed last week, then you have seen nothing yet…honestly I am seething. As you know, I don’t get to see all of the crew shenanigans until the episode airs, unless I happen to come upon them misbehaving unexpectedly. That was not the case here.”
With The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion coming up, the OC ladies are scrambling to clean up their individual messes. They also seem to be taking one last virtual shot at their enemies before that reunion couch footage airs. Shannon Beador is no exception, writing in her blog this week about all of the “rumors” she could have spread about Kelly Dodd (but didn’t). Which means she’s not a bully, at least in her own judgy eyes!
Shannon begins with whining about production having to inviteVicki Gunvalson and Kelly to Tamra Judge’s party. Shannon claims that she and hubby David Beador “didn’t have a choice because we didn’t create the guest list. Vicki and Kelly are responsible for putting a horrible and false allegation out there about my husband. I don’t want to see or talk to either of them… understandably so.”
Captain Lee Rosbach is not one to mince words, and in this week’s blog, he serves it up straight, with a twist of snark!
Essentially, Lee‘s disappointed with his Below Deck crew, and specifically, with Ben Robinson’s utter lack of professionalism. Lee claims that if he would have actually borne witness to Ben’s petty treatment of one guest – a psychic who told Ben news he didn’t want to hear – Ben would have immediately received “a plane ticket home.” End of story. Ouch!
