The cast of Vanderpump Rules causes major drama and brings big ratings for Bravo, but they are apparently NOT paid accordingly!
According to insiders the cast made a measly $5,000 for the entire first season, but when it turned out to be an unexpected ratings hit for the network, Bravo upped their salaries – but not nearly on a level with say, Real Housewives.
Kenya Moore is never one to mince words but when it comes to donations to Detroit Public Schools she is going IN on co-star NeNe Leakes for failing to cough up her $20,000 donation!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta starsaysNeNe is pissing her off by failing to meet her obligation to Detroit Public Schools all because she has a vendetta against her. Kenya seems to think shaming her co-star into it will force her to write that check. “Clearly she has no intention of writing the check. I think it really shows the type of person she is,” Kenya states.
SHAHctober came and went with Shahs of Sunset nowhere to be found due to a strike. The post-production crew was like, if you want us to watch and edit hours of raw footage of these people, you’re going to have to pay us a lot more money. I mean, can you blame them? I can barely stomach the edited version.
Bravo has yet to announce a new premiere date for season four despite the fact that the strike ended in October. Still, the cast is out and about, promoting the new season.
It’s no secret that Tori Spelling is a big ole’ mess – her marriage is in shambles, she’s selling her soul to reality TV, she’s completely broke, and suffering from mysterious health scares – but does she also need rehab?
Mary Jo filmed scenes with Tori for the reality show True Tori, which she describes as alarming and potentially dangerous. Despite the fact that it was Dean who went to rehab, Mary Jo believes it’s actually Tori who needs it!
I’ve always been a proponent of not snarking on a woman’s pregnancy, but in the case of Kim Kardashian her pregnancy weight gain unfortunately became national news. And it turns out Kim believes she was enduring the ultimate sacrifice from a higher power to test her faith by gaining weight while pregnant. I kid you not.
Teresa Giudice is reportedly already in talks with Bravo to star in a cooking show after she gets released from prison, and proving that she’s serious about the venture she has released a video sample of what fans could expect!
Teresa heads to prison on January 5th and she will serve a 15 month sentence for fraud. Although she’s eschewed most media and has refrained from talking about her situation, opting instead to spend time with family and friends, sources say Teresa is still working behind the scenes to salvage what she can from her business ventures and Fabulicious empire.
It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of the GTL. Sure, my gym is feeling inadequate when I only get 20% of my daily Fitbit steps while walking back and forth to the office copier with no other form of exercise. My tanning is of the spray variety, if at all…and that’s only for special occasions when orange is better than transparent. As for laundry, let’s not even go there. But I adore those kids of the Jersey Shore. I loved them when they were wasted fools making a mockery of everything Seaside Heights wanted to preserve, and I have enjoyed seeing them grow into actual normal(ish), successful adults.
That said, following Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’swalk down the aisle with Jionni LaValle (who recently lost his license thanks to a DUI) has been a lot of fun. Who doesn’t love to see a true friendship like Snooki and JWoww’s that was born of reality television. It’s a true rarity…like a unicorn, or a decent, handsome, rich guy who opens doors, pulls out chairs, and pays my student loans. That said, there were some guests missing from Snooki’s nuptials. I don’t really care about the whereabouts of Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, but where, oh where was my precious Vinny Guadagnino? Sidebar: is it weird that I have to look up the spelling of “notoriety” (I just did again…always want to put an “a” in it) any time I want to use it, but “Guadagnino” is ingrained in my own personal spelling bee?
Y’all, sometimes it just boggles my mind how much people seemingly change when they become reality stars. You can always spot the green newbie, innocent and wide-eyed, who seems almost terrified of the drama brought on by her veteran co-stars. Sometimes, these first-timers won’t compromise changing themselves to create craziness and become fan favorites or the one everyone loves to hate. Their desire to stick to their morals often makes them come across as boring, making them one-and-done in the reality television world. Real Housewives of Orange County’sLydia McLaughlin, anyone? Of course, then there are those who start out timid and almost goody-goody, but they quickly learn from their counterparts and become masters of their own reality destiny. You know I’m talking about Real Housewives of Atlanta’sPorsha Stewart!
Girlfriend started out as a pretty wallflower, but she’s taken pages out of the brazen NeNe Leakes’ and the kray-kray Krayonce Moore’s playbooks to become quite a reality vixen. She’s building a brand, y’all! She’s got a lingerie line. Heck, she even assaulted a cast mate at a reunion! Now, she may even have her own platform for finding her next sugar daddy. Porsha’s clearly figured out this game!
