Happy weekend, readers! I hope your week was better than Rob Kardashian's. Poor guy was advertising his itty bitty woes to anyone who would listen, and now his one attempt at getting his mother's attention entering the world of Kardashian business ventures isn't going as well as planned. Yikes!
At least things are looking up for sister Kim thanks to boyfriend Kanye West. She's even apparently scored an invite (thanks to the tiny rapper) to the Met Gala after being blacklisted by Anna Wintour last year. Now, whatever will she wear? That's the bigggest fear question!
Desiree Hartsock's season of the Bachelorette premieres in one month. In real time, Desiree has narrowed her pool of possible husbands down to three, though Reality Steve has already chosen the winner.
"From what I'm hearing, Desiree's choice in the end will not surprise anyone," Steve tweeted on April 17. "She's apparently known from early on who she liked the most." Steve went on to name the guy earlier this week; however, he also predicted a less than rosy future for Desiree.
Reality Steve's expert opinion is – you might want to sit down for this! – the guy that Desiree most likely chooses doesn't seem to be ready for – are you sitting down? – marriage! GASP! NO! SAY IT ISN'T SO!
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
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?
