It was rough waters for rookie reality TV members and siblings Amy Johnson and Kelley Johnson, who relied on each other to survive a tumulus season of Below Deck – which included gossiping Kat, heartbreaker Jennice, and crazy crazy charter guests!
Amy and Kelley reflect on their first season and how they processed working in such stressful circumstances. It turns out having a blood is thicker than water ally definitely worked to their advantages. Neither shares whether or not they’d come back for another season, however. If they’re invited, that is. Rumor has it Bravo plans to shake up the crew every season to prevent the drama from going stale, but keeping a couple key players like Captain Lee and Chef Ben Robinson.
Amy admits she had reservations about joining the crew of The Honor. “For me, [the cast] already had this established relationship so they were really in tune — especially with Captain Lee. When your leader already feels the vibe with those three, it was kind of like odd man out and [I had] to prove that I can earn his respect.”
Kim Kardashian is trying to make a name for herself outside of vapid sex tape star, dramatic divorcee, and reality TV harlot. The name she is trying to make for herself is Mrs. West: fashion savvy, business maven, who is a force to be reckoned with! And she wants people to respect her work.
“I pride myself with my work ethic, and I work really hard,” Kim says. “I think when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a ‘reality show,’ they take that as a negative. We’re in our tenth season. We have more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy.’ We have so many milestones that people don’t think about.” Milestones… um… divorces, butt injections, child slave labor, and selling out your most intimate personal moments for attention. Got it!
Kim says she is proud of the “well-shot, well-lit home movies” which is what she considers KUWTK and cites the ability for her family to “share” and treasure these moments on film for the rest of their lives.
This week on Manzo’d With Children we saw something very rare — one of the Manzo children made a major decision without consulting mama Caroline Manzo. Normally, you would think — “Well, it’s about time, these kids are adults!”
But the problem this time was not that Lauren Manzo did not consult her mother before she made major renovations to her business — including construction and a name change. The problem was that she did not consult her business partner and investor, who just also happens to be her mother.
One of the most horrifying reality TV stories we’ve ever had to report is the shocking case of Mama June rekindling her romance with Mark McDaniel, the man who spent 10 years in prison for molesting her then 8-year-old daughter Anna(“Chickadee”) Cardwell. This week Anna revealed that as an elementary school student when she initially told June about Mark abusing her, June did not believe her, but luckily a school teacher did and Mark spent 10 years in prison for child molestation.
Upon his release June has seemingly reignited their flame, dumping Sugar Bear, resulting in TLC pulling the plug on the Here Comes Honey Boo Booempire! June certainly is giving up a lot for tainted love – including the possibility of losing custody of her three minor children: Chubs (17), Pumpkin (14), and Honey herself, Alana. June has introduced Alana, 9, to Mark and the two were photographed together.
Now details from the police report and trial of Mark McDaniel have emerged revealing the absolutely horrific abuses he enacted against Anna, who was SO brave for coming forward and telling the adults in her life what she was going through. Anna initially told an elementary school teacher, who shocked by the graphic and very specific details of Anna’s story, immediately alerted authorities.

This, just one week after Jeremy took to Twitter to accuse Leah of cheating on him with Robbie Kidd, announce he was filing for divorce and seeking custody of Baby Cheetos, and throw her decision to waste away his ability to financially support her (unlike her loser boy toy) in her orange face. “LMFAO,” he wrote. “You sure made a good choice. He can’t buy you a Big Mac.”
I guess when you’re sentenced to the clink, anyone and everyone who has ever spent time in prison is raring to provide their two cents. Teresa Giudice certainly has people coming out of the woodwork to give her advice as to how to spend her time in the big house, but I was certainly surprised to hear the latest person chime in on the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s fate!
There is no shortage of celebrities and prominent figures who have spent time behind bars, but who knew the Reverend Al Sharpton would be weighing in on Tre’s upcoming incarceration? Preach!
Discussing DICKtionaryGate between Kathy and Teresa, Dina admits she initially thought Teresa was being ridiculous and should just accept Kathy’s apology. But now that Dina knows Kathy a little better… and has seen how Kathy is behaving with Jacqueline Laurita (i.e. using each other for camera time and filming reactions Teresa’s sentencing), Dina has changed her mind. Now she seems to imply that Kathy is manipulative and scheming just like everyone else on RHONJ!
