Reality TV Viewer Numbers RHOA

The reality TV viewer numbers for the past two weeks are in – and the Real Housewives of Atlanta was the only show on our list to see an increase both weeks over the holidays. 2.815 million tuned in to meet Demetria, then 3.162 million watched to see Porsha and Kenya meet up last week. Love & Hip Hop aired only the first week, and 2.179 million tuned in to see Diamond and Cisco work on their relationship.

Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons saw a season low on December 21, with 1.326 million watching Scott and Kourtney visit Fire Island, but bounced back on December 28 with 1.741 million viewers. Similarly, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills took a nosedive the week of Christmas, but 1.635 million fans tuned in last week to see Brandi’s housewarming party. Vanderpump Rules remained steady over the holidays.

Teresa Giudice Christmas

It looks like Teresa Giudice might not be spending the whole year of 2015 in federal prison.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s lawyer spoke out this morning about Teresa’s last hours as a free woman and when we can expect her back home with her family. 

Teresa will have to serve at least 85% of her 15 months, so her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. shared this morning that she may be out by year’s end.  “We project she will be home sometime before Christmas.”

kevin jonas gets off on the wrong foot with geraldo rivera

Last night reinforced an important lesson on Celebrity Apprentice, if you’re classy – reality TV is no place for you. Just a reminder: this recap, of course, contains spoilers so don’t read if you’ve been avoiding the internet like the plague for the last 24-hours. 

So we start out by meeting the most vicious cast ever, and to prove that point Brandi Glanville is rocking a leopard-print coat. Feisty, raaaawr! Donald Trump is insufferable as always. 

The women’s team contains: Brandi (reality mega-villain and best selling tweeter about what she does with her twatter), Kenya Moore (Former Miss WHO-S-A, who had a Scepter App hidden her purse so not to violate the anti-props contract stipulations), Leeza Gibbons (talk show host), failed reality star Kate Gosselin (minus her 8 and the tumorous bunion known as Jon), Jamie Anderson (a former Olympic snowboarder with a long history of legal imbroglios who has the same plastic surgeon as Brandi – face. does. not. move.), Vivica A. Fox (hoping to resurrect her acting career by playing evil),  Shawn Johnson (a former Olympic gold medalist who thinks social media usage qualifies as a legitimate career. Was she on DWTS?), and Keisha Knight Pulliam (formerly Rudy of The Cosby Show). The women’s team is infinitely more diabolical and interesting than the men’s team, but I suppose they came out and tried to play, so we have to talk about them.

gretchen

Former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Gretchen Rossi is no stranger to rumors of fake storylines, but it definitely hits a nerve with her.   Last night Gretchen posted the photo above and shared “Me and my sweetie tonight @sladesmiley.” 

One of her followers blasted her on Instagram, writing, “They made all the wedding bs up for the show that’s why she was fired bc she just did it for a story line.”

kandi burruss reacts to shocking news about a rhoa relationship

Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta things were shocking, in the invisible fence way. Invisible fences are harder to climb over, as the ladies found out. 

Cynthia Bailey had a dream and that dream is rapidly becoming a nightmare. Because Cynthia is going into business with Peter to open the new Bar One!

Misguidedly, Cynthia is honored that Payday Loan Peter, chose her checking account and she will no longer be a silent fibroid, but a living, breathing bank account. The delusion: it runs deep – certainly deeper than the zeros in ol’ CB’s savings account. Who does Peter think he is married to – NeNe Leakes?!

Cynthia has a dream and that dream is that people do not believe rumors about how she finances all his foolish shenanigans and he married her for a TV show,  free vodka, and VIP strip club access.

sister wives

So two hours of Sister Wives, anyone? One hundred twenty minutes of Kody Brown’s mane. Thankfully, last night’s episode starts with everyone preparing for Mykelti and Madison’s graduations. The girls go to different schools so there will be double the opportunity for Meri to make a scene at the ceremonies. Christine compares Mykelti’s nest leaving to that of daughter Aspyn who she believes was more prepared for the transition. Madison, on the other hand, can’t wait to high tail it out of Las Vegas and head to college in her former home state of Utah. Janelle promises that she won’t turn into a sappy mom (ahem, Meri) as her daughter packs her room. 

With everyone wondering about Robyn’s pregnancy (she did look pretty pregnant last season), she has her own little sofa session where she admits that Aspyn asked if she was pregnant while the family was watching the slide show featured on last season’s finale. After Aspyn approached her, more and more family members inquired as to whether she was having a baby. Well, we can stop the bump watch, folks! Robyn states that she is too busy with My Sister Wives Closet to even think about having another child…at least at the moment.

 Teresa And Joe Giudice Court Appearance

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is officially a federal inmate.  Teresa surrendered to Danbury Prison a little after 3 a.m., her attorney confirms.   Joe did not escort her to the prison.

Our inside sources (not the same one who confirmed that they’d heard the raid story was true..we’re no longer taking tips from that one) shared with us that most of the stories written about Teresa’s final days before heading off to serve her 15 month sentence were totally fabricated.  “So much out there about Teresa’s last days. Radar never has the right info! I can tell you first hand what’s been going on.”
