The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and Real Housewives of New Jersey failed to draw a big crowd. The season 6 premiere attracted 2.14 million viewers overall. However, in the key demo, it was the lowest rated premiere episode in the history of the show. For comparison’s sake, season 5 premiered to 2.842 million and the season 5 average was 2.29 million.
Don’t Be Tardy is back and this time the Biermanns have a six-pack of kids to make their household just a little more crazy. After the premiere Thursday night, both Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann sat down with Bravo to cover the craziness that is their lives.
Including, who makes a meaner mac and cheese, finally moving into their dream home, drinking a placenta smoothie and all those kids!
For any family of eight, mac and cheese — the blue box kind — and frozen chicken nuggets are probably a dinner time staple, and these former stars of the Real Housewives of Atlanta are no different. But the Biermanns do disagree on just who can bust out this culinary concoction better.
Personally I LOVED it when the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswould film at the incredible Malibu mansion that belongs to David Foster and his wife, Yolanda. The glass fridge, ocean views and personal lemon grove — it looked like it was out of a magazine. And when the couple listed it earlier this year for a jaw-dropping $27.5 million, housewives fans — me included — wondered why they would ever want to leave paradise.
There was speculation that it had to do with Yolanda Foster’s battle with Lyme disease, but now her husband is opening up and explaining why they are selling their dream house. And the reason, actually kind of makes sense.
Apollo Nida was giving yet another interview – this time to Be100 – and, as always, didn’t hold anything back. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star drops a few shocking drops of tea. His restitution initially started at $14 million. He doesn’t think his marriage to Phaedra Parks will survive. And he says there were others involved in the fraud dealings, but he took the brunt of the fall.
When asked how the sentencing has affected his family life, Apollo says “It’s hell. Hell on wheels. I’ve asked god to forgive me. I’ve forgiven myself. I had to move on. From there I just had to bite down, I was going through so much. It doesn’t make you less of a man to cry and shed tears. I’ve shed tears. I’m just upset at how I was raised and to possibly be taking my son through the same thing. But by the grace of God he’s still young and we have many years ahead of us. I just can’t make those same mistakes. It’s all on me.”
He continues, “a lot of people could be held accountable, but at the end of the day, it’s over with now. We’ll pay back the $1.9 million and keep going. By the grace of God I was able to get that down. It [restitution] was $14 million.”
Jim reached out to us to share his side of the story and explain the circumstances regarding custody of his two sons, his ex-wife’s legal situation, and the truth behind his involvement in the Whistleblower action.
Whistle Blower Action
Jim makes it clear he has “never” had any trouble with the law. Jim explains he and his former company Cell Therapeutics became embroiled in a civil lawsuit which explains his desire to acquire a maximum award from the judge.
“She’s begging for attention right now,” Tamra quipped. “If you do fit into your 4-year-old’s clothes, don’t talk about it! Just go eat!” True words, but seriously – Tamra calling anyone out for begging for attention. My head hurts. Can’t comprehend. So much irony.
