It was Shaunie who prompted Tami to give the LA franchise a try by introducing her to the cast while she was working in L.A. But this season she’s largely a spectator to the drama and not an “official castmember.” You mean, instead of her usual role as perpetuator of the drama?!
“I don’t want to catch no cases,” Tami quips. “You can change but the inner workings of you sometimes–people can push those things. I appear as a special guest for a few episodes. I was inserted to meet the ladies and bring my straight to the point personality to the group.”
Thank goodness for sources with the inside scoop! Reality Tea is fortunate to have one when it comes to Basketball Wives: LA, and our contact has been spot on with all of the assessments of the upcoming season. I am excited to see how it all plays out, especially in light of the anticipated Miami crossover!
Our insider has been sharing tidbits with us about the show for a while now. Filming of the new season is drawing to a close, and our behind the scenes informant shares that we need to expect the unexpected. Not everyone from Miami about whom we’d previously speculated actually made the jump to BBWLA, and the fan favorites are at odds with their co-stars. That’s the kind of drama I like!
In our new batch of reality star sightings today, we have still-going-strong couple Demetria McKinney and Roger Bobb, as well as a plethora of stars attending Pre-Grammy parties.
Demetria and Roger attended the NAACP Image Awards together on Friday night while Joanna Krupa hosted a party at 1OAK, giving us a whole lot of sideboob. Also spotted was Kyle Richards who hit up a dinner hotspot with husband Mauricio Umansky, who was then accidentally labeled in the photo set as Kyle’s first husband, Guraish Aldjufrie!
The shiz-nigh-ee is about to hit the fan-ishtas-ee. No, not really…I just love channeling my inner Lil' Scrappy. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star says the darndest things! Scrap has had close to a dozen eggs scrambling to get in his pants this season, but Momma Dee is cracking down on the ladies. Not just any woodland creature can enter her kingdom!
Speaking of, "the Bambi," despite what we saw on Monday's episode, Scrappy and Bambi are still together and more in love than ever…which, in Scrap's case, means he's finally in love!
What is it about rites of passage when it comes to reality stars? If they aren't releasing their own cookbook, they're getting stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. I guess there are more ways than one to maintain notoriety once a show finishes filming for the season!
This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charmreunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed.
On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through theReal Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.
