They'll be back before you know it! Yes, I'm talking about the less violent but equally ridiculous compared to their counterparts women of Basketball Wives: L.A. VH1 seems to have us in some sort of choke hold with these girls, yet I don't fight it. Odd, I know.
With some new cast members in the mix (and the Sisters Govan departing), hopefully there will be some new excitement in BBW: LA (read: not boring as heck). Not surprisingly, the show's breakout star Draya Michele is all about promoting the series (and herself of course) to whoever will listen.
Two new reality shows are making their debuts tonight – and they couldn't be more different (other than their premiere times – 10/9c). Tonight marks the arrival of Oxygen's Preachers of L.A. and MTV's Big Tips Texas.
Preachers of L.A. follows six mega-pastors, depicting their daily lives, preaching styles and sharing their home lives.
Big Tips Texas (I cannot seem to stop wanting to type Big RICH Texas!) debuts on MTV and follows the lives of four veteran and six newbie waitresses and bartenders at a bar named Redneck Heaven, where the goal is to make the customers feel "happy and horny".
"I have reached out to Elsa many times with cards, calls, and flowers that can be verified by florists, and I sent an email to her daughter, who never replied back," Lea maintains.
"The amount of camouflaged and blatant hatred, venom, lies, bitterness, and phoniness that spews out at me each week says more about anyone than I could ever say," Lea adds. "It’s unfortunate you can't go to a party of 'friends' without being a target." Um… welcome to the Real Housewives franchise!
The creator and producer of the show has always dreamed of owning her own television empire (watch out Kris Jenner!) – a veritable mafia of her own, if you will – and has big plans to not only expand the reality show franchise, but venture into scripted TV, food and wine, and even movies!
Jennifer says she always knew she wouldn't be a mob wife herself, but growing up in the lifestyle and around those women she was fascinated. And circumstances sort of decided for her since she was "book smart as well as street smart".
"I knew from a young girl that I did not want to marry a man and stay at home and take care of the family," Jennifer shared with The Examiner. "Starting from kindergarten I was up (and ready to go to school) before my mother and my sister (Renee)," she recalls. Translation: Jennifer inherited her father's head for business but was too smart to end up in the mob herself!
The reality TV viewer numbers for Sunday and Monday are in – and it's good news all around. Nearly all the shows saw an increase in viewership this week.
On Sunday, the season finale of Hollywood Exes garnered 723,000 viewers, which was up from last week's 581,000. Season two started strong, premiering to 1.7 million, but quickly declined. The season average was 826,583 viewers.
Teresa hopped on her blog this week to talk family healing (I want to gouge my eyes out every time I see that phrase this season) and to call out co-stars Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile on things they said. She also dishes on her new dessert and coffee line and reiterates that things are great with her family right now.
First, Teresa professes her love for the least worst reunion of all time. And also declares crazy table flipper Teresa as a thing of the past. "Of all the Reunions I've ever been to, this one was the best. I know that's like saying something is the best worst, because the Reunions are never fun. They are brutal, long, and everyone ends up frazzled. But compared to other years, I guess what I'm most proud of is how I didn't let other people upset me. That old table-flipping Teresa is long gone. I've learned a lot by watching myself on television, and I hope I've changed for the better. We're all works in progress and we'll all keep growing."
Sources reveal to TMZ (so you know it's gotta be true!) that almost immediately after the separation announcement was dropped Bruce went off to shoot scenes with Kendall and Kylie. The family is still filming season 8. And there's more: Bruce will continue to be part of season 9 (rumored to be Kimmie's last after she becomes a legit A-List baby mutha fashionista. #yeahright)!
The upcoming season will feature Kris and Bruce "living separately" but getting together for various family events – of which there will be many, of course. "The family is very conscious of the fact that they can make more in syndication," sources said.
