Those Real Housewives continue to deliver for Bravo. Bravo’s ratings last month were their best April ratings in the network’s history.
From the Bravo Press Release:
“The network averaged 916,000 total viewers, up 10 percent compared to April 2011, and delivered 549,000 adults 18-49. Maintaining its No. 1 position as the most affluent, educated and engaged audience in cable entertainment, Bravo ranked No. 11 in primetime among all cable entertainment networks in the adult 18-49 demo for the month.”
Well, well, well… here’s a day I never thought I’d see! Apparently the elusive Chateau Sheree is no longer so elusive and it is much more than a few sticks, a porta-john, and a No Trespassing sign! Some crafty Atlanta bloggers Funky Dineva and Straight From The A‘s Michelle Brown paid a visit to the lot of neverland and were shocked to find out it’s a somethingland instead.
Kim visits Rose the psychic, who tells her that Kroy’s parents don’t like her or want the wedding to happen. I loved the way Rose’s husband answered when Kim asked if he was coming to the wedding. It was the most unconvincing “sure” I’ve ever heard. I predict he’ll skip that mess.
Ugh – after wisely phasing the original Teen Mom out of the line-up following one trainwreck after another from the cast, we could only hope MTV had plans to drop the Teen Mom series completely. No such luck!
RadarOnline is reporting that MTV has started casting for Teen Mom 3 which will follow a whole group of moms from this season’s16 & Pregnant. Although, this time MTV has an agenda to cast more stable girls!
Mackenzie Douthit, a former cheerleader from Oklahoma has a son named Gannon (yes, for real) and she is engaged to baby daddy Josh McGee. “She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.” Wait – they aern’t looking for Jenelle Evans, Jr?
Alexandria Sekella is from Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella. She is memorable because she considered giving her daughter up for adoption but changed her mind. Alexandria also satisfied the crazy daddy drama, as her former fiancé Matt McCann entered rehab last December for drug addiction.
Regardless both girls are said to be thrilled about having their lives documented for our viewing pleasure. “Both of them are excited to be on Teen Mom 3,” the source says. “It’ll be quite a journey. Viewers loved them and can’t wait to see more.”
Well, hopefully they’ll have their lives a little more on track than certain current Teen Moms!
WILL YOU BE WATCHING TEEN MOM 3? ARE MACKENZIE AND ALEXANDRIA GOOD CHOICES FOR THE SHOW?
Even though we’re pretty sure no one actually watched The Pauly D Project, apparently someone did because Pauly’s road manager, Biggie, has decided to take off on his own. Wetpaint reports that since appearing on the show, Biggie has received many DJing offers of his own and has decided to stop living his dreams through Pauly and pursue his own career. But, no worries, the pair are still BFFs. The other members of Pauly’s crew, JROC, Ryan and Jerry show no signs of leaving the fold.
Yesterday, reports came out saying Brandi was let go for not being able to include her sons in the show after ex-husband Eddie Cibrian refused to allow them to be filmed. Well, apparently these were just rumors. “She’s a full-time Housewife,” a source close to the show tells E! News. “Bravo is fully supportive of Brandi and understands that Eddie won’t let her kids be shot for the show. It has zero impact on her involvement with the show.”
RumorFix confirms that Brandi will be back next season, although Eddie is not happy about it! “Eddie is going to fight Brandi about having them in the background on the show,” their source reveals. The source also claims Eddie and new wife LeAnn Rimes are hypocrites! “They are constantly doing photo ops and interviews that include the kids and Brandi does nothing.”
“She is going to fight back but Bravo isn’t involved, it’s all good with them. Eddie and LeAnn are always doing staged photo ops and interviews – Brandi just wants to see the kids when she has them.”
Brandi herself dispelled the rumors, taking to Twitter to confront them head-on. “Dear @radar_online u have no idea what ur talking about ur story is ALL wrong! As usual,” she wrote.
And she’s accusing Eddie of being responsible for the rumors! Oh boy. “Funny no one really knew or knows my work status and after one talk with my ex husband its splattered all over the internet #leakmuch?”
ARE YOU RELIEVED BRANDI IS STAYING ON HW? IS EDDIE TO BLAME FOR THE RUMORS?
One of the oddest things about The Bachelor and The Bachelorette‘s astoundingly low success rates was that ubiquitous host Chris Harrison was happily married to his high school sweetheart. Chris and his wife Gwen Jones kept their marriage very quiet and seemed to be happy as clams.
Sadly, yesterday the couple, who has two children together, filed for divorce after 18-years of marriage. Allegedly the pair has been separated for months, but have remained friends. Chris even threw Gwen a lavish birthday party this January. Despite their issues, they have also been co-parenting their children, Joshua, 9, and Taylor, 7.
“They are still really close and remain the best of friends,” an insider reports to In Touch Weekly. “They’ve been taking turns with their kids so they can both see them as much as possible. It has been really amicable, with no other parties involved, and Chris has been a total professional while filming The Bachelorette.”
Despite E! denying it this week, rumors are still flying about a possible third walk down the aisle for Kim Kardashian.
This week’s print edition of Us Weekly claims that Kim and Kanye West are moving in a serious direction at breakneck speed and are already talking rings and nuptials. Their closest friends aren’t the least bit surprised because the two have known each other for so long. A source shared, “They’ve been friends for so long and they really know and love each other.”
