Beating out gazillionaire multi-hyphenate – and friend – Simon Cowell (who nabbed the 8th spot), Ryan’s reality TV endeavors rake him in an estimated $50M per year. I wonder how much he made on Kim Kardashian‘s made-for-TV wedding?
So what’s next for Ryan? The 37-year-old mogul just inked a $15M deal to remain on AI for two more seasons, he’ll be providing coverage for the summer Olympics, and he’s producing a new reality show about former teen idols, the Jonas Brothers. Oh, brother…
Even though Andy Cohen said that The Real Housewives spinoffs (new cities) were done and over after the addition of Miami, he may have had a change of heart. The rumors are back, claiming that The Real Housewives of Dallas is a definite “go”.
LaLate News reports that RHOD is now ready to start filming after contracts were signed for an initial ten episode first season. The cast is rumored to be a done deal, with the group photo already taken!
The site’s source claims that the new cast members are being paid equally – $110,000 for the first ten episodes ($11,000 per show). No word on who those cast members are just yet. I wonder if any of them will be the initial rumored cast?!
Bravo still hasn’t confirmed a word of it, but we’re hoping they’ll put us out of our misery soon – we hate suspense!!!
TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED OVER THE POSSIBILITY OF A DALLAS FRANCHISE?
Who’s excited for the premiere of former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson‘s latest reality show, Kendra On Top? It’s surprisingly not based on Kendra’s sex tape that was leaked a few years ago, but is instead focused on Kendra building her “brand.” Another lesson in marketing 101 from a reality show. How original. The network describes the show like this:
The series will focus on Wilkinson as she “gets her groove back,”
and works diligently to balance family, work and her personal ambitions.
KENDRA ON TOP from Prometheus Entertainment began production last month and
brings viewers back into the fun-loving world of the former playmate and her
It’s Friday and time for a whole mess of news about your favorite celebutante, Kim Kardashian. We’ll start with the most exciting news, and that’s the news that Kim and her soon to be ex Kris Humphries will soon be deposed as part of their divorce proceedings. And you know what that means — all kinds of Kardashian dirt is about to emerge!
HuffPo reports that it’s still up in the air whether or not we’ll be treated to a Kim video deposition, which naturally the very shy reality queen does not want to participate in. Kris’s lawyers want her to go first. The pair’s next court date is set for August 15, with their interviews tentatively scheduled for early June. Somehow I have a feeling someone, somehow will get a copy of these depositions. And I can’t wait! Kris’s lawyers are eager to get started and make the decision about whether to pursue a fraud case. Radar has a great quote:
Kris wants a divorce trial so that the truth can finally come out. Amongst other matters, he wants to know about the Ferrari that the couple got from a very wealthy Malaysian businessman that attended the wedding. Kris was at Kim’s house when the car was delivered — it was given to both of them, but Kim has kept sole ownership and has used it extensively. She will be asked about it, under oath, on the stand at the trial.”
Is Andy Cohen tired of his role as ring master of the circus? Is he over refereeing constant fights and drama amongst the ladies of Bravo?
Sources say Andy is tired of dealing with the Real Housewives of everywhere and no doubt our delightful ladies of New Jersey are what put him over the edge! According to the NY Daily News, Andy is over being judged by the company he keeps and he feels his association with the non-stop drama of the series that put his name on the map is ruining his credibility.
Apparently, this is not the show Andy started out developing and the antics have gotten too much for the budding talk show host who wishes to pursue his own face in the spotlight instead of promoting the trashy behavior of the ladies he made famous!
A source close to the Housewives franchise claims Andy “has been trying to distance himself from ‘Housewives’ because he wants to be taken seriously as a talk-show host” and because the low-class behavior of the ladies doesn’t fit in with his new A-List aspirations! “He wants to have his fancy celebrity friends, and the girls don’t fit.”

Because reality stars (past and present) thrive on attention of any kind, they’re always in the press. Good or bad! Here’s a round-up of what’s been happening as of late.
The formerReal Housewives of DC stars have had an eventful week. Perhaps they’re coordinating press releases for maximum exposure!
Up first, Mary Amons filed for divorce from husband Rich Amons. She announced her split from her husband of 26 years on Facebook! “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my twenty-six year marriage. While I have the deepest respect for my husband and wish him the very best, we have grown apart,” Mary wrote.
She then added that she wants privacy during this difficult time – which is why she publicized it on Facebook, right? What this means is that every single member of the former RHODC cast is now a single lady. Perhaps Bravo can do a former Real Housewives dating show?

Oh Jimmy Kimmel, you just inched up a few slots on my cool people list.
Last night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the comedian made Kim Kardashian the butt of several jokes. She and pimpmomager Kris Jenner saved face by laughing when the cameras panned their way, but I’m sure they were genuinely delighted to be the center of attention.
It might be time to upgrade your DVR to a higher capacity one. I don’t know about you, but mine screams “GET A LIFE” every single time I add a new show to my lineup.

A few of these sound like they might have potential. I’m throwing my name in the hat to be a judge on the Untitled Male Model Project. I’m a team player like that. You know I’d bring you the inside scoop.
P.S. Could the networks PLEASE stop scheduling every single reality show on SUNDAY night. Some of us still have stone age DVRs that only record two shows at once.
