Bravo has one more reason to bring us a 2nd season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Tuesday night finale showdown delivered the network a record 4.6 million viewers! That is the highest ratings ever for any of their housewives series, surpassing both the OC and New York franchises.
In other news, Andy Cohen, the host of the Housewives reunion shows recently spoke out about the New Jersey reunion. Andy says the reunion lasted well over 6 hours, “I threw out a grenade, let it go, and said, ‘OK, ladies,’” Cohen says. “And it exploded multiple times. I had shrapnel. I went home, drank a bottle of wine and watched “Schindler’s List” to relax.” Can’t wait to watch that reunion.
We reported yesterday that Jon & Kate Gosselin were planning a big announcement on their upcoming Monday episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Well RadarOnline is now confirming the big announcement is that they are getting a divorce.
Radar says that Kate recently met with a divorce lawyer, and Jon will file divorce papers next week.
Another source reveals that the couple had previously agreed to separate by July 15. But that timetable has now been pushed forward. According to the source, they had been talking divorce for quite some time and the decision was recently finalized to announce it.
This news will as non shocking to those who have been following this show for a while. Jon was caught cheating with 23 year old teacher, Deanna Hummel. While Kate was also rumored to be having an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild.
The two had continuosly spent time apart, including their recent 10 year anniversary. They were photographed together on Wednesday with their kids, for the first time in a while.
Below is a photo of the family from Wednesday -
TELL US – Do you think they are making the right choice by divorcing?
First it was Kristin Cavallari all but confirming that MTV’s The Hills is fake. Now it’s Lauren Conrad’s turn. Lauren appeared on the View yesterday, and surprisingly admitted that the infamous apology phone call she received from Spencer Pratt was fake. She said she was not on the other line for that phone call.
Lauren was asked by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “Did you feel like it was a sincere apology when it came from him?” Lauren smiled, paused and rolled her eyes before answering – “To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t on the other end of that call,” Conrad replied. “That was filmed, and I wasn’t on the other end. So I didn’t even know about it until [it was on TV]. So, no, I didn’t get an apology. He lied.”
So why did she agree to go to their wedding if she never got an apology?
“It’s hard to understand now, but a long time ago — years ago — we moved here together, and we were best friends, and we used to say, ‘Some day at our wedding….,’” Conrad said. “I just felt like it was a few hours of my time, and as much as I didn’t agree with it, I might some day regret not doing it.”
So basically Spencernever apologized for spreading those sex tape rumors. MTV should just go ahead and call this show a soap opera instead of a reality show. Are people still watching this show? I pretty much stopped watching a few seasons back.
Just when you thought they were gone for good, Heidi and Spencer Pratt have decided one more time that they need more attention.
The two Hills stars will be returning toI’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! again, Usmagazine confirms, despite several attempts to quit before officially leaving the show on June 8.
They will both be joining the entire cast of the NBC reality series on the June 25 finale. They will also be joined by Heidi’s sister, Holly Montag, who made her debut on the I’m a Celebrity last week.
Holly and JaniceDickinson were both eliminated from last night’s episode.
Southern Belles: Louisville is arguably the best reality show you are not watching. It is a new reality show on Soapnet featuring 5 young women in their 20s and 30s as they go through their lives. It has been described by some as a reality show version of Sex and The City.
I started watching this show by chance a few weeks back and I must say I AM HOOKED! It reminds me a lot of the Real Housewives series, with younger women ofcourse. Imagine the lives of the Bravo housewives 10 – 20 years ago, and you pretty much have this show.
It airs Thursday nights at 10/9c on Soapnet. Below is more information about each cast member -

When it rains, it pours. Just when we thought the worst was over for Danielle Staub, comes news that her ex boyfriend is trying to sell a sex tape, and expicit photos of her. The ex is Steve Zalewski, the 26 year old boytoy that appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey with her. You know, the balding one that looked older than Danielle.
In an exclusive interview with Star, Steve, now 27, says his 46-year-old ex was sex-crazed. “Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught,” he says.
“She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms basically every time we went out — she’d get all excited and say, ‘The people can hear you doing it outside!’”
Steve alleges the two had a bad breakup, due in part to her always borrowing money from him. “She tries to look affluent,” he says. “But sometimes she couldn’t pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she’d want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!”
Now Steve is considering recouping some money by selling steamy naked videos of Danielle! “I’m definitely weighing my options as far as selling them and getting them out there. She cost me so much money, why shouldn’t I make a few dollars?”
What a sleaze bag, Danielle has got to make better choices about the men she dates, and brings into her daughters’ lives. There’s just something very tragic and sad about this woman. She seems to be trying REALLY hard to be Samantha from Sex and The City, not being able to separate fiction from reality.
The only good thing she seems to have going for her are her two daughters, who both seem to have very good head on their shoulders.
DWTS alum, Melissa Rycroft has just landed a new job with ABC’s Good Morning America as a special contributor, reports Usmagazine.
Rycroft, a 26-year-old sales representative and former Dallas cowboy’s cheerleader — will appear on the morning show about eight times during the summer, “bringing lighthearted, uplifting and fun stories to GMA,” says a source.

After the show ended, she told Us she didn’t have any plans.
“I’m not going to pursue anything right now,” she told Us, “but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!”
Following her outstanding performance on DWTS, we knew we haven’t seen or heard the last of Melissa.
