A day after the shocking news by Bravo, stating they were postponing the Real Housewives of New York City in favor of the Real Housewives of Miami two weeks before its premiere date, many are now wondering what the real reason is.

As we pointed out yesterday, Popeater reported back in December that Bravo higher ups were not happy with the way the 4th season was going after viewing the footage. Things were apparently so bad that Bravo asked Bethenny Frankel to return to the show for many appearances, something she wanted no part of.

Fast forward to today and the NY Post as well as the NYDailyNews are both reporting Bravo pulled the plug on the Feb. 15 premiere because they thought it was too boring.

According to the Post, the producers decided to cancel the original premiere because “it lacked the explosive catfight-filled drama expected of” other Bravo housewives series. In fact, Andy Cohen emailed the entire cast of the show early yesterday informing them of the news.

“We decided yesterday that our best bet was to give ourselves a little breathing room,” Andy wrote. “I would rather get the show right than rush it to air.” Andy also warned the cast not to tweet about it until Bravo made the official announcement.

Sources tell the Post that following good ratings for its drama-filled Beverly Hills counterpart, the producers simply felt the New York show didn’t have enough drama to satisfy viewers. “They wanted the ladies to fight like cats and dogs, but they got along,” said a source. “[But] they are now freaking out that they’ll get fired for being boring and replaced by more fiery women.”

The NYDailyNews also confirms the Post’s story adding the cast was informed of the change just hours before it became public news. Bravo also reportedly received negative feedback following the sneak peeks they aired this week during the RHOBH. The final reason for the change? Bravo “thinks ‘Miami’ is more like ‘Beverly Hills‘” and bets fans of the latter, which just ended its season, will “piggyback” onto “Miami.”

The cast of the show are however giving a different reason for the sudden cancellation. Both Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord tweeted yesterday that Bravo simply needed more time to finish the editing considering they were still filming just a week ago.

In an interview with Star magazine, Sonja Morgan gives the same reason. “I think they feel like they have such good stuff, they don’t want to waste it. They want to make sure it’s done properly. Personally, I’m relieved. It gives me more time to relax, especially considering Ramona [Singer] and I were shooting seven times a week. They’ll have Miami go out first and when they’re done, we’re up.”

Sonja added, “they need some more time to edit. We’ve filmed like crazy, more than ever, and we’re seven ladies so they have a lot of footage to go through.” Safe to assume they “filmed like crazy” because Bravo wasn’t happy with the footage they saw more than halfway through filming.

As for Bravo, Andy released this official statement – “No conspiracy here, folks. We have an embarrassment of riches with Miami and New York, and I assure you that ‘the Real Housewives of NYC’ will be well worth the wait.” The new season is now slated to air in April or May.

TELL US – WHICH STORY DO YOU BELIEVE REGARDING WHY THE SHOW WAS POSTPONED? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE SNEAK PEEKS?

It seems Kim Kardashian has had a total change of heart following her hysterical breakdown on her E! show Kourtney & Kim Take New York over some nude photos she took for W magazine.

On the show, Kim appeared very upset W magazine published what she called “full-on porn” pictures of her in its annual November Art Issue, claiming they told her she would be covered in art instead of being featured fully nude in the issue.

“Looking back, I love the photos,” Kim told UsWeekly on Thursday in L.A. “W Magazine is iconic so I’m really happy that I did it and that those are the photos.”

So why the tears on the show? “It’s just that that’s not what I thought they were going to be,” she explained. “Obviously I’m comfortable posing nude — I’ve done that before, and I did that then for the magazine. But that’s probably not the direction I would’ve wanted to go if I thought that was going to be the case.”

W magazine also fired back at Kim’s allegations on Tuesday when they insisted Kim’scover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture.”

Which brings us to another issue, is Kim Kardashian’s 15 minutes of fame coming to an end? Following the latest episode of her show, Kim surprisingly received a ton of backlash from fans, who for one did not believe she was even genuine about being upset, and also called her a hypocrite for complaining about the nude shots considering she became famous after releasing having a sex tape leaked.

In fact a look at the UsWeekly and HollywoodLife coverage of the story shows over 90% of the comments being very negative towards Kim. “Oh cry me a river. I may not have as much money as KK, but at least I have enough common sense to keep my clothes if I don’t want to play show and tell. Kim K — get a grip and go AWAY,” said one reader. “Oh my god this female is ridiculous! You cry over some picture, but you don’t cry over your sex tape and play boy pics?” said another. The comments on our coverage of the story echoed the same negative sentiments.

While Kim has always received criticism for her shenanigans, it has never been this negative before. Add in the recent negative press she and her family received over their Kardashian Kard debacle, fashion empire crisis, and one has to wonder if she is on the last few minutes of her original 15? Once upon a time, her former BFF Paris Hilton covered magazines and was very popular with numerous endorsements, only to become a public has been. Only time will tell if Kim is next to follow. The ratings for her E! reality show do continue to be high however with 3.17 million viewers tuning in to their most recent episode.

And finally, just 3 days after the crying episode aired on E!, FHM UK released some new bikini photos of Kimmy gracing the cover of their March issue. And when asked about her Playboy photos in the FHM interview, Kim replied, “I thought those Playboy pictures looked great.” She added, “I’ll keep them forever, but it was an independence thing for me, rather than something I want to do all the time.”

Guess it’s safe to see why fans are not taking her woe is me tears too seriously. Those FHM photos are below -

Holly Madison is insisting she is not jealous of ex-beau Hugh Hefner’s engagement despite her recent comments to the media, you know, the ones which include statements like Hugh “could do better than Crystal.”

In a new interview with UsWeekly magazine, the 31-year-old Holly’s World star claims she just wants what’s best for Hugh. “I think everyone expected me to feel one way, they expected me to be really jealous,” said Holly of Hugh’s engagement to Crystal Harris, 24. “But it’s not how I feel. We’ve been apart for two years. I just want him to be happy.”

Holly adds, “I’m more protective than anything else. I just wanted to make sure he’s making the right choice.” It also helps that Holly is currently happy with her new beau of five months, All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat. “He’s totally cool — really down-to-earth,” she said of Jack.

In other Holly news, she posed in some new bikini photos on Tuesday just weeks after being told she needed to lose weight for her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. The occasion? She was being photographed for new ads for SVEDKA Vodka’s specialty HOT_BOT cocktail.

Those bikini photos are below! The obviously badly scripted Holly’s World airs Sunday nights at 10.30/9.30c on the E! network.

Real Housewives of Miami

Bravo housewives just got a little bit spicier!

Following the postponement of the Real Housewives of NYC, Bravo announced today that the Real Housewives of Miami will be making its debut on Feb. 22 at 10/9c.

The RHMIA (Bravo also announced today that’s the hash tag they want to use for the show) was originally filmed as a different show under the title Miami Social Club. However following filming, Bravo loved what they saw, so much that they decided to make it a housewives franchise.

The cast includes (from left to right in the above photo), Alexia Echevarria - executive editor of Venue magazine, Marysol Patton - runs her own PR firm the Patton Group, Larsa Pippen - wife of former NBA star Scottie Pippen, Cristy Rice - recently divorced from NBA star Glen Rice, plus Lea Black - wife of famed attorney Roy Black and Adriana DeMoura-Sidi – a full time mom & art collector.

And despite the reports that came out a while back stating Elaine Lancaster, a Miami South Beach drag queen would be a “housewife,” Elaine did not make the final cast. A preview clip is below -

Could this be the Bethenny Frankel factor?

In an odd and unprecedented move, Bravo has decided to axe the Real Housewives of New York City, at least for the time being. With less than 2 weeks before it’s scheduled Feb. 15 premiere date, Bravo announced today that the 4th season of the RHONYC has been pushed back to late Spring.

The show taking it’s place? The all new Real Housewives of Miami, which will be making its debut on Feb. 22. No reason was given for the sudden move to postpone the RHONYC, which was still being heavily promoted on the network as of Tuesday.

The clues might lie within a December report by Popeater which stated Bravo execs became “increasingly concerned” with the way the 4th season was going based on the footage they saw more than halfway through filming. That same report stated the execs wanted Bethenny Frankel to make more appearances on the show.

Bethenny however had no interest in returning to the show with a source close to her saying the thought made her “physically sick.” Another sign of trouble was the fact that the show was still filming as of 2 weeks ago despite its close premiere date.

UPDATE – A new post will be posted within the next hour with photos & bios of the RHMIA cast!

Below are some tweets made by the New York Cast over this story –

SimonvanKempen – #RHoNY Delay is good as we were still filming up until last week & a 2/15 premiere was a very quick turnaround. Gives us a chance to breathe.

mccordale – #RHONY will start in Spring – find out who the #thuginacocktaildress is when the weather’s warm enough to wear one!

UPDATE #2 - Simon just tweeted that Bethenny will not be making any appearances on the 4th season. Previous reports had stated she would be making guest appearances on the show.

A week after MTV aired an episode of their mega hit show Jersey Shore, which showed Sammie “Sweetheart” Giancola punching boyfriend Ronnie, Sammie is now expressing remorse for her actions.

The drama began when the off-on couple went out to a club on last week’s episode, and Sammi saw Ronnie talking to a female, which led to a jealous rage once they got back home, and later on a punch in the face.

TMZ caught up with Sammi and costar Deena Cortese on Tuesday in NYC (same day the above picture was taken) and when asked about the altercation with Ronnie, Sammi revealed she’s “appalled and disgusted” at herself for punching him, adding that the whole thing was a “low point” in her life.

Deena also chimed in stating “violence is not the answer.” According to TMZ, the Seaside Police is not planning to investigate the incident unless Ronnie presses charges, which doesn’t look like is going to happen.

As for the current relationship status between Sammi and Ronnie, the two broke up again just two weeks ago following reports that Ronnie was creeping at a nightclub. No word of whether or not they’ve gotten back together again… for the umpteenth time.

And yes, pictured on the far right with Sammi and Deena is Teen Mom star Maci Bookout. According to the HollywoodLife, Maci, 19, hung out with the Jersey Shore stars on Tuesday, as the trio enjoyed dinner and drinks. No word on why Maci was in New York, though it was likely to meet with MTV. The latest issue of Life & Style magazine also reports Maci got a recent boob job, going from an A cup to a C cup.

And finally, a new episode of Jersey Shore airs tonight. On the 6th episode this season titled ‘Should We Just Break Up?‘ Snooki meets a guy, but he may or may not be engaged, Pauly makes peace with an old enemy; and Ronnie’s hard partying takes a toll on his relationship with Sammi.

The all new episode airs on MTV as 10/9c.

Tonight marks the return of Bravo’s real estate show Million Dollar Listing.

Yes, Chad Rogers is no longer on the show. Replacing Chad is Josh Altman, a 31-year-old successful real estate agent who specializes in the Beverly Hills and Hollywood Hills luxury housing market. Joining Josh this season are returning alums Madison Hildebrand and Josh Flagg.

As for the reason Chad left the show, he states it was “due to a career decision,” making it clear it was his choice to walk away.

On tonight’s season opener titled ‘Bad Market For Mansions,’ cast member Josh A. tangles with an angry seller trying to market his chic home, Madison seeks a party pad for a big-bucks entrepreneur, and Josh F. works for an eccentric seller with overly high expectations.

It seems following the return of Brad Womack as the current Bachelor, Vienna Girardi is now angling to be the next Bachelorette.

According to a new report by AM NewYork, Vienna, 23, former fiance of Jake Pavelka, was overheard “plugging” herself to be the next Bachelorette over dinner at Primo KO in New York City.

She was apparently in NYC to take part in a Bachelor reunion that was also attended by show alums Molly Malaney Mesnick, David Good, Rozlyn Papa, and Gia Allemand. No word on whether or not ABC is even considering having Vienna return as the Bachelorette though it might not be far fetched as Brad’s return is currently proving to be a success for the network. Monday’s episode of the Bachelor was the highest rated this season, bringing in 9.4 million viewers.

In other Vienna news, UsWeekly is also reporting she and former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand got into a recent twitter war. It gets even better as it was over former Bachelorette contestant Wes Hayden, also Gia’s ex-boyfriend.

“I guess I can hope to be the Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!” Gia, 26, tweeted late Tuesday. Vienna didn’t take too well to Gia’s tweet as she denied dating Wes, despite claims they hooked up at a recent Bachelor reunion in Texas.

“It’s sad that people have to make up lies (Gia) that I’m dating someone so they can get sympathy and attempt to become the Bachelorette,” Vienna sniped back on twitter.

“[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] even approached me — hope they got it on camera. We will see soon on the Women Tell All [special],” Gia snapped back. “The world already knows [your] true colors.”

Yikes. As for what happened between Gia and Wes, Gia said the following to Realitysteve.com about his rumored hook up with Vienna, “Wes is a snake who only cares about himself and uses people to try to get another 15 minutes of fame, so this doesn’t shock me about him at all.” Safe to assume these are not friendly exes.
