Season eight of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered to over three million way back in June. Yes, June. Five months later, the season finale drew an audience of 2.33 million, making the season average 2.428 million viewers.
Dear Preachers of L.A., Why did you have to turn last night's episode into a platform for the many commercials of Pete Wentz's Best Ink? To tat or not to tat, that was the ONLY question. Don't get me wrong, I loved seeing Jay Heazlip and Ron Gibson do what they do best which is warm my heart and pump me up, respectively. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the spunky side to Wayne Chaney, although his wife got a bit too Judgy McJudgerson. I honestly didn't miss Noel Jones or Deitrick Haddon. Oh, and Clarence McClendon was there, too.
Ron is getting spiffed up at the barber shop because he's the key note speaker at an upcoming minister's conference. The other shop patrons question Ron about his thug swagger. Doesn't he want to be a part of the board at church? Ron isn't willing to give up his trademark bling just to fit in with the more conservative clergy men. Speaking of conservative, welcome back Clarence. We missed you…maybe? He's recruited his oldest son to help out with his ministry. It's a bit of a challenge for both of them.
Loretta has invited Myesha and Christy to her restaurant to bond over food, and Myesha is very hesitant to try some of the dishes. The ladies discuss Deitrick and Dominique's upcoming wedding that Noel will be officiating. Myesha asks how the others feel about couples having babies out of wedlock, and Loretta responds she doesn't judge anyone…not even Christy for her tattoos. Myesha looks appalled and tries to explain away her aversion to tattoos, but she's digging herself a deeper hole by comparing tattoos to sinning. Christy then schools Myesha with Scripture, and Loretta coaxes Myesha to admit that getting a tattoo doesn't make someone a bad person.
I'm not trying to wish away 2013 by any stretch of the imagination, but 2014 seems to be shaping up to be just peachy in regard to new reality shows.
The original member of the Funky Bunch turned acclaimed actor and Entourage creator? Check. My favorite member of NKOTB turned scary guy in Sixth Sense? Check. Their mother and brother Paul? The actual dudes who inspired the characters in Entourage? Check and check. Your interest has to be piqued, right?
I'm not going to say, "I told you so," but only because VH1 doesn't seem to listen to what I have to say. After all, it brought back the original Love & Hip Hop, didn't it? It seems the network is hell bent on reviving Basketball Wives: LA with new ladies and new drama. Shocking, I know.
The new crew, along with some veteran cast members, are currently filming the upcoming season, and things among the ladies hasn't been all "raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens" if you get my drift. Now, gossip is swirling that the oftensometimes slightly more even-keeled than the rest Draya Michele may have peaced out before the season concluded.
Kim Kardashian is ready to get pregnant again! Kim and Kanye West are enjoying parenthood so much that they are already plotting their second child together, according to sources.
According to Us, America's Baby 2.0 will be arriving sometime in early 2015, after the Yeezus wedding of 2014, of course. Mama Kris needs to spread out the headlines. Us sources shared, "She'll try to get pregnant next summer, after the wedding,"
Kimye are reportedly anxious to have their kids close together and they may not stop at just one more. The source confirmed Kim and Kanye already know they want "a huge family". With Kanye losing his mom Donda and being an only child, this seems plausible. Let's just hope one of them slows down on their career to care for all these kiddos!
Andy Cohen is about to start having less to do with wrangling Housewives behind-the-scenes and a lot more to do with actually being his own reality star! Don't worry we're not about to be treated to an Andy-themed reality show but we are about to get more Andy on the air! And more Andy in charge of making shows for teevee!
Andy has just started his own production company called "Most Talkative" which will develop primetime shows for the network. He also inked a new two-year deal to continue WWHL. Andy will relinquish his title as executive vice president of talent and development at Bravo because he will now be developing his own shows. Luckily, he still remains an executive producer for the Housewives franchise.
Some of the shows Andy has recently been developing behind the scenes are Fashion Queens, Shahs of Sunset, and Married To Medicine. He calls the new job an "inevitable transition," according to the NY Times. Frances Berwick, Bravo's president, says the new move is a good one. “This is sort of freeing Andy from the corporate shackles,” she explained.
To kick things off, Mike Shouhed visits MJ to help her express her dog's anal glands. Seriously. The only thing I'll say about this is, the free alcohol is a nice touch, but there are not enough tequila shots in the world for that. Then we learn TMI about MJ's shower habits. Pass the tequila. No shot glass necessary.
Next Lilly meets up with Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi. So, these two are exploring their friendship, and Lilly's totally on board since GG is "skinny and pretty". She might cut a bitch, but at least she does it in a size 2 jean, right? GG reveals she's been dating a new guy for the past five months. Lilly gives her the side eye because she saw her making out with not-the-new-guy at the birthday party. GG says she was on a "two day break" so it's all good.
