Impressive numbers, for sure, but also a 19% drop compared to season 11.
American Idol's ratings fell another 10% Wednesday night – with a total of 16 million viewers – despite Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj's feud being aired. If the footage of their showdown was leaked on purpose back in October (to create buzz) it certainly didn't pay off.
It's been pretty quiet on the Heidi Montag/Spencer Prattfront lately. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining! Reality's most hated couple has been engaging in their inappropriate and selfish behavior across the pond, and I have to give Britain a slow clap for keeping them over there as long as it has.
If Speidi gets their (it's?) way, the disastrous duo will have a gig all of their own soon…no more slumming it on "celebrity" reality competitions. It kind of makes you feel sorry for the United Kingdom, doesn't it?
Is anyone else out there totally over the Adrienne Maloof/Brandi Glanville drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I don't even mind Brandi so much, and I definitely don't think that she should have aired Adrienne's dirty laundry, but I also have to wonder…who goes to such great lengths to keep that a secret? I'm just baffled.
I'm also tired of Kyle Richards trying to win back fans (ain't happen' Splits!) by playing nice. She's going to get a rash if she refrains from pot stirring for any length of time. That said, I applaud her efforts to play nice and straddle the fence (those splits come in handy!), but I don't buy any of her behavior as being sincere.
We'll start with the most disingenuous of this week's Bravo blogs, and we'll end with a candid and sincere interview with Kim Richards about her sobriety. Let's get started, shall we?
The drama that surrounds Jenelle Evans seriously never ends. Today's news: assault charges, moving on with a "good" friend, continued drug abuse claims, and new baby mama drama.
Jenelle's attorney, Dustin R.T. Sullivan, told E! News that the Teen Mom 2 star has filed charges – four counts of assault on a female with an unborn child – against soon-to-be ex-husbandCourtland Rogers. According to Dustin, Jenelle was "physically assaulted over a period of time" but seems to be "very concerned about her general health and well-being."
Facing a maximum 150 days in jail per charge, Courtland tweeted, "She has put me threw [through] hell and back and I ALWAYS been the best man I could for her. I am devastated and my whole family knows I didn't do that."
Did any of you check out the Neenster withEllen DeGeneresyesterday? Girlfriend is all over the place these days! That's right, the one-lining, sitcom/reality star/"Close your legs to married men, WIG!"NeNe Leakeswas on Ellen to talk about her shows The New Normal and Real Housewives of Atlanta…and of course her recent engagement to ex-husband Gregg Leakes.
While she was there, the former stripper got a little taste of her own medicine as an engagement present from Ellen. Wow, NeNe has certainly be surrounded by the exotic dancers this week, hasn't she? Wasn't she just hosting the opening of West Hollywood's Cake Factory Strip Club?
