Reality Tea

Married to Medicine Dr. Heavenly

This week's reality TV viewer numbers report is nothing but bad news. As I predicted, Married to Medicine lost a ton of viewers without Real Housewives of Atlanta's lead-in. Only 921,000 watched Dr. Heavenly's shady dinner party this week. That's down 642,000 since last week and almost 1.5 million since the season two premiere.

On Monday, 16 & Pregnant continued its downward spiral, with only 795,000 watching Aleah and Peyton's story. Also, showdown at the hoedown on Real Housewives of Orange County attracted 1.638 million viewers, and just over three million tuned in for Scrappy's 30th birthday on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

On Tuesday, a memorial for Sonja's dog on Real Housewives of New York garnered 1.167 million viewers. Ouch. In all fairness I'm sure the Memorial Day holiday played a part in this week's abysmal report. What remains to be seen is which of these shows bounce back despite warmer weather, fresh new summer shows, and so on.

Shannon Beador Sells OC Mansion

Shannon Beador truly isn't your typical Bravolebrity it seems. Not only does the Real Housewives of Orange County feng shui her mouth, she also isn't following the normal reality star protocol which usually involves moving into a much bigger home after a small taste of fame regardless of whether they can afford it.

In fact, as we reported earlier in the week, Shannon and family are actually downsizing (gasp! Is that even a thing if you're an OC housewife??), and selling their current digs for the low, low price of $13,498,000. That seems to be the going rate for multiple kitchens, secret rooms, seven bedrooms, more than a dozen bathrooms, and a regulation size basketball court, right? Of course, because no housewife in the history of the franchise has voluntarily left a ginormous mansion for more modest living, rumors of marital discord began running rampant.

Farrah Abraham

Book one of Farrah Abraham's trilogy, Celebrity Sex Tape, will be released July 1 – and I could not be more excited about it. No I haven't lost my mind. I do not plan to read Farrah's smut book, but this also means Farrah needs to give interviews to promote it! I can't stand Farrah, the person, but I love Farrah, the interviewee. Bring on the interviews!

Farrah sat down with Huff Post Live's Ricky Camilleri earlier today to talk about Celebrity Sex Tape and say awesome things like her trilogy is the next stop in her "portfolio of literacy" and reality TV taught her to be "more better at communication." Let's have a moment of silence for Ricky. He deserves it. 

Farrah introduced the main character of her trilogy, Fallon Opal, and Ricky asked, "Not Farrah?"  She insisted, "Not me. I think we all use our inspiration and experiences of life to build our stories but this is very different from anything that I've ever had in my life. But I noticed through some drama that I went through this past year of my own sex tape that this is a popular issue."

If I was Camille Grammer, I might wake up today thoroughly confused. Last October Camille claimed  her then-boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, went ballistic and assaulted her while she was in a Houston hotel room recovering from cancer surgery.

In the documents obtained by TMZ, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said that a woman was texting, calling and screaming at Dimitri, causing an argument between him and Camille.

What Camille claimed happened next will make your skin crawl….also remember she was recovering from CANCER SURGERY!

Gosselin Sextuplets

Mark your calendars. Kate Gosselin will be back on TV soon. Very soon. Too soon. As you know, TLC granted Kate and her plus 8 a follow-up special, partly thanks to Jon Gosselin giving up his right to keep his kids off TV in exchange for not having to pay child support. I'm sure Jon carefully weighed the pros and cons, his priorities, and all that good stuff to make that decision. #EyeRoll

Yesterday, TLC announced Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 will air as a two-part special and focus on how the kids – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel – have grown and what's new in Kate's life and career. 

TLC shared, "The special also looks back at some of the most memorable and poignant family moments from the past several years and highlights what the day-to-day routine has been like for Kate and the kids since we last saw them." Viewers will also see spring break activities, family outings, and the sextuplets' carnival-themed 10th birthday party.

The Kate Plus 8 special premieres June 19 and concludes June 26 – and the fun begins at 10/9c both nights. Check out a short video clip of Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 below. Aww Kate is just as warm as I remember her to be.

NeNe Leakes apparently thinks she's worth her weight in gold!

While it seems all but certain that Bravo would like NeNe to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, the budding spinoff star claims she plans to ask for more moolah if the network wants her to hold a peach! 

But NeNe doesn't think she's above her castmates – with ratings for season 6 being massive, NeNe thinks everyone deserves a larger chunk of change. “All of us deserve a raise,” NeNe announced to Life & Style. “I haven’t asked for more money yet, but I damn sure plan to!” NeNe reportedly makes $1 million per season.
