Women earn only 78 cents on the dollar compared to men, but Caitlyn Jenner is bucking that trend (along with many others). She will reportedly be paid a whopping $6.4 million dollars for her new “docuseries” (reality show) I Am Cait, which covers Caitlyn’s steps in transitioning from a man to a woman and will air on the E! network in late July.
“It’s the biggest paycheck ever given by E! for a solo reality show, and Caitlyn’s agent was relentless in getting her the huge payday,” an insider tells Radar Online. Sources claim that Caitlyn’s agent indeed played hardball, even shopping around other networks when E! didn’t initially cough up the money. “At one point, talks … had broken down because nobody wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn’s agent then began informal talks with other networks, and E! quickly came back to the table, ready to pay $6 million,” says the source.
Over on the East Coast: Bravo reality stars Arzo Anwar (Blood, Sweat and Heels) and Dr. Tabasum Mir (The Singles Project) have their hand prints immortalized at Buca di Beppo restaurant in Times Square, NYC. RHONY star Ramona Singer was photographed at the Hamptons Magazine Cover Party held at Barn & Vine in Bridgehampton.
The Teen Mom OG star, who has a way with words – and everything else, announced her split from Simon on instagram to celebrate “National Ex Day,” accompanied by a photo of the two of them kissing. Farrah praised the moment as fond memories.
If you were wondering how long you’d have to wait for a new season of Little Women: LA, wonder no longer! The show returns next month already! And in a double dose, as Terra’s Little Family kicks off another season at the same time! Lifetime is mixing things up with the Little Women: LA season 3 cast, adding two new ladies to the series – Jasmine and “Freakabritt,” aka Brittney Guzman!
The cast shot new promo pics and have shared several on social media, letting the cat out of the bag that there are two new cast members. It also would appear that Traci Harrison is stepping back a little. She’s not featured in the main cast photos/promos, but she’s been included at some of the events they’ve filmed, according to the Instagram of her fellow co-stars. Maybe this is Lifetime’s version of “friend of” instead of “full time member.”
I can’t believe it’s the season 2 finale of Blood, Sweat, and Heels! Is it just me, or was this season waaaaaaay too short? Bravo, please give us more of these ladies next season (and please, please let there be a next season, period).
In full disclosure, I have to admit I’m connecting to Mica Hughes‘ recent loss of her 91-year old grandmother in a special way tonight, as I lost my own 91-year old grandmother just this morning. A second mother to me, she went peacefully, surrounded by love and family and I got to see her right up until the end. I know reality television is good fodder for snark (don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of it with this finale!), but it’s poignant to realize that we’re all connected in strange, surreal, and plain old human ways too. Now, on to the show. Which tonight, friends, is one HOT mess. 🙂
Lisa Nicole defended her decision to run a background check on Quad during Married to Medicine, tweeting, “Background checks are a standard business protocol in business. No malice intended.”
On WWHL, Quad replied, “I think that’s a good cover for She Who Shall Not Be Named. We all saw my investors last season and she was not one of them. We were not doing business together whatsoever. She actually wanted a little something to go into the reunion with last year, but you will catch that tea later.”
