The reality TV viewer numbers are in.

Good Numbers:  Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to interest a large audience. 4.041 million tuned in for the Bailey Bowl drama this week. The season finale of Sister Wives attracted 2.235 million and 1.916 million stuck around for the tell all special, bringing the season average to 2.025 million.

Steady: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trip to Puerto Rico attracted 1.8 million and Basketball Wives L.A. logged 1.882 million viewers this week. Dance Moms and Teen Mom 2 consistently log strong and steady numbers despite giving us two of the most hated reality TV stars in recent history – 2.069 million sat through Abby's abusive ways and 2.222 million couldn't resist Jenelle's shameful behavior.  

Bad Numbers: 2.072 million fans watched Keeping Up with the Kardashians this week. That's a 500,000 drop from last week's over-hyped proposal show. Part two the Shahs of Sunset reunion garnered 1.044 million viewers. Do you think Shahs of Sunset will return with a season average of 1.272 million?

If you're tuning into the this season's Teen Mom 2, you know that the girls are still bringing the drama and immaturity you've grown to expect from this group of mothers of the year. While some are trying much harder than others, there is no denying the heartache that Leah Messer Simms Calvert and ex-husband Corey Simms' are going through as they deal with daughter Ali's diagnosis in front of MTV's cameras. 

Leah and Corey have twin girls, one of whom was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy after years of trying to determine the cause of her developmental delays. While the disorder could eventually leave precious Ali wheelchair bound, Leah is excited to see that her daughter is beating the odds.

FOX Sports 1 Super Bash

So there are whisperings that Brooke Burke-Charvet's sudden departure from Dancing With the Stars in favor of sportscaster Erin Andrews is due to ABC's desire to draw more male viewers to the competition show. Um, is Erin planning on being naked for the duration of the upcoming season? I really don't think there is another way to get young guys to watch a ballroom dancing competition that should have tapped its way off our small screens a while ago…and I still watch religiously!

Brooke, who co-hosted with Tom Bergeron for seven seasons, is reportedly "in shock" from being fired, but she's handling it like the classy champ she is. Bad move, DWTS. Bad move…although I do love some Erin

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 4

Leave it to ol' Truth Bombs Glanville to ruin a perfectly nice and low-key vacation to Puerto Rico.  Actually, Yolanda Foster was actually the catalyst of yet another Real Housewives of Beverly Hills vacation gone awry! After YoFo took it upon herself to be Brandi's mouthpiece and tell Lisa Vanderpump that it's weird she's besties with Splits Richards again, Brandi gets Kyle's kaftans in a knot by sharing that Lisa wanted the Mauricio cheating scandal tabloids brought to Palm Springs to stir up drama. It was quite an episode!

All Joyce Giraud wanted to do was bond with friends and see her family while mourning the recent loss of her father. Poor thing should've known better!  After all hell breaks loose on the everyone versus Lisa front, Kyle is left confused by Brandi's story and Lisa's staunch denial. Y'all know I'm a Lisa fan through and through, but do I think she tried to get Brandi to bring those rag mags to the ladies' vacay? Of course I do. Was it catty? Sure, but that's how these women operate. That said, do I think that the Kyle/Brandi/Yo trio handled themselves like some sixth grade mean girls? Yup. I, for once, agree with Kyle (do I have a fever?)–had Lisa just played it off and admitted her part in a tasteless joke, the whole trip would have played out much differently.

Part two of the Shahs of Sunset reunion was not nearly as explosive as part one but there were a few moments worth discussing. So my favorites revolve around Lilly Ghalichi and Mercedes "MJ" Javid's crazy mom Vida, but MJ saying that only Persians have to deal with responsibilities like working, caring for pets, cooking, and cleaning definitely deserves a shout out. What. A. Twit.

To kick things off, Andy Cohen revisits Reza Farahan attacking Sasha earlier this season.  Reza claims he's sorry then starts in with his "woe is me" excuses. He says Sasha talking about the Iranian Revolution set him off,  adding,  "None of them can understand how that makes me feel – I am someone who suffered for 40 years because of the crap they did in Iran. My name is Reza and I look like this. My name is not Lilly. My name is not Mike. My name is Reza and I look like this. I am as Persian as Persian gets when you look at me."

Andy is like, how does that justify insulting Sasha? Andy insists FOB (fresh off the boat) is a hateful thing to say to someone. Reza and MJ disagree. MJ calls it mere teasing. Andy reminds them that Reza made fun of Sasha's accent also. Reza says, "Absolutely!"  MJ adds, "It's really annoying."  Two peas in a pod.

Danielle Gregorio-2

Real Housewives of Orange County did a serious recast this season which included bringing on a reported three new castmates.  

Danielle Gregorio is a mom of three and party planner. Danielle is a friend of Heather Dubrow, who campaigned hard to get her on the show – and Danielle definitely does not plan to be subject to the newbie curse of being on your best behavior! 

Danielle wants to be famous and is willing to go to great lengths to accomplish that," a source reveals to Radar Online. "She said she is going to create sh*t to make the drama for the show." As a friend of a veteran housewife she is well-versed in what it takes to create controversy and get noticed with outrageous storylines and dramas – she is not above making things up to get that storyline either.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 4

Lisa Vanderpump was unfortunately attacked on American soil by a horde of rabid jellyfish with over-active stingers. In response to the lashing she took on this week's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa takes to her Bravo blog to pose a question to viewers: "Who do you believe: Brandi or me?" 

And she begins by explaining her history with Brandi Glanville

"First, I have to give you the history of this contentious subject regarding Scheana. So two years ago, at the opening of SUR Lounge, Brandi was there. I knew her a little from her being involved in the show. I was wary of her as she said she was a friend of Cedric [Martinez]'s. We discovered later that was not true, but really, apart from that, had very little knowledge of her and her ex-husband." 

"The group of staff who wanted to be in the pilot that is now Vanderpump Rules had already been assembled and were working that night of the finale party," Lisa recalls. "They were not mic-ed as they had no connection to that event. But I had to have servers and it seemed logical to put people in who were going to be comfortable in that situation."
