In other Idol news, despite often being the top-watched show of the night, the ratings continue to decline each week. According to Deadline Hollywood, the show took another dip on Wednesday night. They shared, "that’s the fourth week in a row for the show to hit such a low and the worst Wednesday performances since Idol’s first season in summer 2002. Also down in total viewership with 12.7 million from last week’s 13.1 million."
While 12 million viewers is nothing to sneeze at, the consistent decline shows that more and more people are jumping ship each week.
TELL US – ARE YOU STILL WATCHING AMERICAN IDOL? DO YOU THINK ANYTHING CAN SAVE IT FROM SINKING?
Former Real Housewives of New YorkstarJill Zarin is really good at two things…tooting her own horn and extending her fifteen minutes–much to the chagrin of all of us! While Jill loves talking about how she wants to stay out of the spotlight and focus on her businesses, she can't seem to get all things Bravo and RHONY from spewing out of her mouth.
This time around she's chatting ad nauseam about her reasons for agreeing to do the show which range from wanting more family time to free publicity for her business ventures. I'm going to let you determine which one you think was the most important to her. Jill also waxes poetic about being one of the pioneers of the Housewives franchise, and she gives stellar advice on how to everyone can reach their goals. Sit back, relax, and take a Jill pill…
Do not be late to a party hosted by Ms. NeNe Leakes or you will likely find yourself hanging out in your designer shoes (and unflattering leopard print pants) in the driveway begging for a doggybag!
Last week the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta were over two hours late to a dinner party hosted by Ms. Leakes and she dejected them at the door. Many wondered why, if you were so tardy for the party, you wouldn't call ahead?
Cynthia Baileyreveals that she did call NeNe to communicate their lateness, and even though she was ready on time she decided to stay and wait for the other ladies.
"I had been communicating with NeNe since we landed, and I knew she was a little stressed trying to get the dinner party together for us because of her work schedule. At one point, I actually thought about offering to come a little early to help her out.
If there's one lesson reality stars never seem to learn, it's "don't throw stones from your glass house", especially when said house could go into foreclosure at any moment. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita may be regretting all the shade she threw at Teresa Giudice about not paying her bills because it looks like Jacqs is facing more financial hot water herself.
First, there is the pesky business bankruptcy that is ongoing, which Jacqs reportedly has/had to testify for. Then there was the revelation this week that she owes the state of New Jersey more than $300,000 in back taxes. It seems that 2013 is continuing to be a rough year for Jacs, as her home is now in pre-foreclosure, reportedly.
According to Zillow (screen shots below), Jacqueline is in pre-foreclosure on her own Franklin Lakes McMansion. The Lauritas were allegedly served papers by their bank for being in default on their $1.8 million home loan.
I want y'all to think back to a simpler time…a time when neighbors were friends, and they washed Cornish game hens in dish washing soap and had dinner parties together. A time before the skies grew dark, and one friend with blue hair feathers got mad at another satin cloaked friend for not having her satin cloaked daughter's bachelorette party at feather-mane's casino. I miss those days. NOT! While I generally don't enjoy conflict (it makes me super uncomfortable), there is something about the Lisa Vanderpump/Adrienne Maloof feud that is oh, so entertaining.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars used to be pals, but now there's an unfair fight brewing in the tabloids. A now fired Adrienne is taking every opportunity to badmouth her former friend, and she should have learned long ago that talking smack about Lisa never ends well for the smack talker. Lisa is smart enough not to start any drama, but when it comes her way, she silences it with some biting and witty remarks that make said smack talker look like an idiot. And let's be honest, shall we? Adrienne is already struggling with her image, and her new plan of spewing hate on Lisa's restaurant Villa Blanca is quickly backfiring.
Wednesdays used to be my least favorite day of the week, but now that Duck Dynasty is back, Wednesday and I are getting along a whole lot better. I'm convinced that if Jase, Willie, Si, and Phil Robertson can't put a smile on your face, then there really isn't much hope.
Last night's episode began with Miss Kay cleaning up her kitchen while Phil touts the uses for turpentine. Here's a hint–it needs to be used to clean up Hollyweird. Willie arrives and informs his parents that they are going to be having their portraits made with their pets. He can't believe he bought his parents such a stellar gift and they've yet to cash in on it. Willie made an appointment so that Phil and Miss Kay would have no other choice. We're less than three minutes in, and Phil gives me a line that could potentially be my favorite of the season. "Pet photographer? That's the degree you get when you're rejected from a degree in aromatherapy. 'Merica." Lord, I love this family.
At Korie and Willie's house, daughter Sadie is preparing some meatballs for her mom's spaghetti. Korie isn't quite up to par with Miss Kay when it comes to knowing her way around a kitchen. Willie learns that his son and his girlfriend have broken up, but he can't focus on the boy's heartbreak when he has jars of spaghetti sauce to wrestle. The following day, Jase is griping about a recent customer complaint. According to Jase, the guy thought he had a broken duck call, but it turns out (after extensive research on Jase's part) that the guy was blowing into the wrong end. Why, if I had a dollar for every time that happened!
