The last thing I need in my life is another reality TV show. And yet I find myself inexplicably drawn to the promised antics of these Staten Island Four. (Particularly Drita, the blonde-ish one who looks straight out of a Dennis Lehane novel.) A couple questions before tonight’s premiere: Can I write “bitch” on this blog or will my editors make me type b^#!% over and over and over again? How much do tips cost these days? Is Renee’s I’ma-being-choked face real or a put-on? Do these broads make the Real Housewives of New Jersey look like your average suburban book club? (This month the ladies meet at Teresa’s to discuss The Red Tent!) I do take a certain pride in never having seen an episode of Jersey Shore. So. I’ve got that going for me. READ FULL STORY

One way to increase your chances at a second season pick up: Embark on an expletive-laden rampage on live television. For all the blandness of the six-episode season of The Real Housewives of Miami, last night’s liiiiiive reunion special was pretty spicy. Given the history of these reunions, it was bold of Andy Cohen and his team to brave live television with these hungry reality stars in tow, all of whom saved their most scandalous revelations for last night’s hour-long special. Adrianna seemed to being carrying the Miami cast’s hopes for a renewal on her finely sculpted shoulders, slinging accusations of cheating Cristy’s way, as well as dropping a bomb about her supposed relationship with a 19-year-old (where was all this dish six weeks ago?). At least the tape delay engineer had a busy night.

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Kyle Richards might be out. Who do you need back to make season two bearable?
In typical Bravo-lebrity fashion, Kyle Richards is hinting at an early exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After making her debut on the 90210’s output of Bravo’s successful franchise last fall, Kyle quickly asserted herself as the “normal” one with the “solid” marriage and the “happy” family. (Unless Allison DuBois is concerned.) The Demi Moore doppelgänger seemed genuinely likable, with a hot, supportive husband and enviable Rapunzel-length hair. But while the show was lauded a season of excess and luxury in one of the most infamous zip codes in the world, watching Beverly Hills gradually went from laughing at middle-aged women’s horrible dancing and attempts to seductively eat cotton candy, to cringing at the dissolution of a marriage (Camille and Kelsey Grammer) and a castmate’s excessive drinking (Kim Richards).
But the aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton isn’t confirming a departure just yet. “The show has been picked up for a second season, but I’m not sure if I’m coming back yet,” she told E! over the weekend. While rumors about new cast members have been moving as fast as Lisa Vanderpump down an L.A. freeway, Bravo is keeping mum on possible additions. “The only thing we’ve announced is that the show is coming back for a second season,” a rep for the network told EW. Would Kyle’s potential absence make you less likely to watch? As long as Lisa has Giggy and Adrienne Maloof continues to wear outfits like this, I’ll be tuning in, but which Housewives do you need to make it through a second season? Should Kyle Richards return to Real Housewives, PopWatchers? (Or, in a season that was tainted by such heavy events, should any of them?) READ FULL STORY
Remember that episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta when NeNe Leakes was blowing her interview with Jermaine Dupri so she started making digs about Kim Zolciak’s age? That’s kind of the same impulse that seems to be driving her during her publicity blitz for Celebrity Apprentice. She just can’t stop grinding her heel into fellow contestant Star Jones. Perhaps because she knows full well that the promise of these digs is what keeps getting her ink or airtime. (Not the most noble way to make a name for oneself.) Today on The Ellen Degeneres Show, under her perpetual guise of just telling it like it is, she pronounced Jones “bossy, manipulative, conniving, and I’m not even being funny, I think that is real, I honestly think that is who she is.” You can check out the full clip below: READ FULL STORY
I didn’t know St. Patrick granted wishes, but apparently he does. After a way-too-long hiatus, 30 Rock finally returned last night. Well, sorta. The show gave up the typical 30 Rock feel in favor of Queen of Jordan graphics, characters, and subtitles. We were treated to an episode of Queen of Jordan, Angie’s reality show on Bravo. In an over-the-top ode to the Real Housewives franchise, each character had to deal with the stress of being filmed 24-7 by the Queen of Jordan cameras. READ FULL STORY
Bravo has just announced that Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New York City is set to premiere on April 7. After a long, cold winter brightened only slightly by the epic tragedy of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the shaky start of Real Housewives of Miami, this news couldn’t be more welcome — especially after Bravo crushed us in February by announcing that the net was postponing New York’s premiere. READ FULL STORYBreak out the champagne, because a celebration is in order:
America is broken. I can’t begrudge people for making silly mistakes. But I can send out a message from the bottom of my heart to all Real Housewives far and wide, from Atlanta to New York, from Orange County to New Jersey, from the new one to the one we’ll never speak of again: Please, ladies, stop trying to act. READ FULL STORYListen, I have nothing against any housewives, real or otherwise. It’s a free country, and people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and we’re all just co-astronauts on the big blue starship called Planet Earth. When people are famous in America, they get a lot of opportunities. When people are infamous in America, they usually get even more opportunities, because
Will Smith’s favorite city from The Real Housewives of Miami, the latest iteration of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise: It is not New York. It is not L.A. It’s a great place to find women with big, floppy hats, ridiculously long, flat-ironed hair, and sexy accents. Its largest PR firm employs a staggering 12 people. And some people refer to it as The Magic City. (Okay, fine, I actually learned that last fact on Wikipedia.)Here’s what I learned about
I still don’t know, however, if Miami has what it takes to host a decent edition of Housewives. READ FULL STORY
