The creator and producer of the show has always dreamed of owning her own television empire (watch out Kris Jenner!) – a veritable mafia of her own, if you will – and has big plans to not only expand the reality show franchise, but venture into scripted TV, food and wine, and even movies!
Jennifer says she always knew she wouldn't be a mob wife herself, but growing up in the lifestyle and around those women she was fascinated. And circumstances sort of decided for her since she was "book smart as well as street smart".
"I knew from a young girl that I did not want to marry a man and stay at home and take care of the family," Jennifer shared with The Examiner. "Starting from kindergarten I was up (and ready to go to school) before my mother and my sister (Renee)," she recalls. Translation: Jennifer inherited her father's head for business but was too smart to end up in the mob herself!
The reality TV viewer numbers for Sunday and Monday are in – and it's good news all around. Nearly all the shows saw an increase in viewership this week.
On Sunday, the season finale of Hollywood Exes garnered 723,000 viewers, which was up from last week's 581,000. Season two started strong, premiering to 1.7 million, but quickly declined. The season average was 826,583 viewers.
Teresa hopped on her blog this week to talk family healing (I want to gouge my eyes out every time I see that phrase this season) and to call out co-stars Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile on things they said. She also dishes on her new dessert and coffee line and reiterates that things are great with her family right now.
First, Teresa professes her love for the least worst reunion of all time. And also declares crazy table flipper Teresa as a thing of the past. "Of all the Reunions I've ever been to, this one was the best. I know that's like saying something is the best worst, because the Reunions are never fun. They are brutal, long, and everyone ends up frazzled. But compared to other years, I guess what I'm most proud of is how I didn't let other people upset me. That old table-flipping Teresa is long gone. I've learned a lot by watching myself on television, and I hope I've changed for the better. We're all works in progress and we'll all keep growing."
Sources reveal to TMZ (so you know it's gotta be true!) that almost immediately after the separation announcement was dropped Bruce went off to shoot scenes with Kendall and Kylie. The family is still filming season 8. And there's more: Bruce will continue to be part of season 9 (rumored to be Kimmie's last after she becomes a legit A-List baby mutha fashionista. #yeahright)!
The upcoming season will feature Kris and Bruce "living separately" but getting together for various family events – of which there will be many, of course. "The family is very conscious of the fact that they can make more in syndication," sources said.
It's nothing but drama with a capital NeNe "D" as NeNe and Gregg Leakes attempt to make it down the aisle yet again on the Bravo wedding spin-offI Dream Of NeNe. Last night's episode focused on mayjah issues with an obstinate wedding planner, but Gregg's jokes made the whole hour bearable. Pass the Lawry's, won't you?
After instigating the fight to end all fights among her bride-maidzillas in Los Angeles, NeNe has brought Diana, Lexis, and Marlo Hampton together back in Atlanta to work through their issues. Above everything else, these ladies need to know that above all, they are supposed to be supporting the Neenster. It's going really well, I tell ya! NeNe is tired of playing referee between Team Neenster Diana and Team Gregg Lexis.
Marlo then compares Diana's looks to that of a security guard, but quickly covers by saying that Diana has been a security guard for NeNe's friendship. Nice save! NeNe feels badly for her old pal, but she can't help but laugh. Marlo forces Diana to hug it out, and here's hoping the bride-maids can be drama free for at least an episode.
They're not going anywhere, and I, for one, couldn't be more elated happy, happy, happy! The phenomenon that is Duck Dynasty keeps spreading faith, humor, family values, and positivity, and it isn't going anywhere any time soon.
Meanwhile, her sister Kim Kardashian is probably jonesing to get BACK in the public eye with new daughter North. Unfortunately for her, Kanye West doesn't want to have to share his child with the world. Lest we forget, this is not America's baby.
For Khloe, divorce rumors abound on the heels of Lamar's alleged mistresses, drug use, and DUI. According to Extra TV, Khloe has found support in a rapper (Are we seeing a pattern…she marries an NBA player, Kim marries an NBA player? Role reversal!)
