The stay-at-home Beverly Hills mom has a burgeoning career as a model at age 40. This week she will be doing a photoshoot with famed Playboy photographer Stephen Wayda (although it's not a shoot for Playboy). Brenda is excited to embark on a new career, which apparently Bravo wants to capture on film. She says producers have approached her (and everyone else near 90210) about joining next season's cast, but she isn't sure if she'll sign on yet.
If this is true then Bethenny Frankel needs to hire one of those PR wizards STAT because she is beyond damage control at this point!
Bethenny and ex-husband Jason Hoppy recently met in court for a fraught meeting to begin divorce proceedings, including custody decisions for their daughter Bryn and living arrangements while they are separated. Witnesses say Jason appeared relaxed, but Bethenny appeared – well Bethenny is just Bethenny, so I'll leave it at that!
Allegedly negotiations between the estranged spouses did not go well. Now RadarOnline reports that the Bethenny Ever After star is refusing to a 50/50 custody agreement with Jason. If you recall, she was the one who took the first strike and requested full custody of Bryn!
If you're not watching Duck Dynasty, you're really missing out on fun-filled, family-friendly, drama-free "reality" television. However, I'm guessing that the majority of you ARE watching because season three's one hour finale was record-breaking. A&E's gem garnered 9.6 million viewers making it the most watched show on Wednesday night, blowing normal competitors like American Idol and Survivor out of the water.
Entertainment Weekly has the numbers, and it's truly phenomenal. American Idol only had a 3.3 rating on Wednesday, with Survivor scoring a 2.9 rating. The Robertson's series averaged 8.4 million total viewers per episode this season which is up 95% from its sophomore season, delivering a 4.3 rating among adults 18-49. Clearly, Soncie has been spreading the word to get folks to watch her beloved Si! Numbers like this have catapulted the series to into ratings gold, making it the cable's most watched reality show so far this year. If that wasn't enough, Duck Dynasty is the second most watched show (reality or otherwise!) behind AMC's Walking Dead. Way to go, Robertsons, and keep it coming!
To celebrate the monumentous occasion, A&E tweeted the above picture. It's proof positive that you can never, ever have too much camo.
TELL US-ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT THE ROBERTSONS DOMINATED AMERICAN IDOL?
In fact Gretchen has even been spotted on numerous occasions wearing an engagement ring that looks eerily similar to the one she allegedly just received from Slave this month! Even more interesting is that Gretchen's ring looks eerily similar to Slade's former fiance Jo de la Rosa's ring. More on that below. But first have the Real Housewives of Orange County stars been lying about being engaged for years? We think so!
Yesterday a source informed us that Gretchen and Slade attended the RHOC season 6 wrap party and announced they were engaged. And Gretchen was wearing a canary diamond engagement ring. Photo proof below!
Andy Cohen took a look at some of the incriminating texts and deduced it as "It doesn't look like sexting to me!" We're still waiting to see the phone so we can judge for ourselves. In the meantime we'll have to console ourselves with Kenya's musings on her Bravo blog. Miss WHO-S-A is now accusing Phaedra of setting her and Apollo up at the reunion to ruin her reputation. Didn't Kenya bring up the texts first?
Hey Jenelle Evans, if you scream it loud enough, someone may believe you! The Teen Mom 2 star is trying to convince anyone who will listen that she is clueless (at least she's not lying about that part!) about how heroin got into her house.
You may recall that the reality star was arrested on Tuesday for possession of heroin and Percocet…oh, and assault. I've come to the conclusion that the authorities in North Carolina have a box labeled "and assault" that they are trained to check whenever a Jenelle arrest occurs. I swear, this chick could be collared for jay walking and an assault would be involved…as she'd probably threaten to push other pedestrians into oncoming traffic. Geez.
I'll be honest, I think the entire cast ofReal Housewives of New York needs to be revamped…and STAT. I was actually excited that Aviva Drescher and all of her neuroses wouldn't be returning, but of course Bravo had to pull a fast one on all of us! It looks like Pinot Singer will have someone to spar with after all!
While I'm not at all shocked that Bravo would pull a last minute rabbit out of its hat, I do have to commend Aviva for what she has been doing recently regarding the tragedy in Boston. I may not like to watch her on my mindless reality circuit (seriously, it's like nails on a chalkboard), I do believe that she always has the best (although often misguided) of intentions.
