Did NeNe Leakes and Kim Kardashian brawl on Sunday night? Not exactly. However, NeNe sure is beating Kim when it comes to TV ratings! Last year, the Kardashian clan signed a $40 million dollar contract with E! that included a slew of reality show spinoffs of the original Keeping up with the Kardashians. Now, despite tons of publicity surrounding the family- ratings for the various spinoffs have been dragging. The heavily promoted premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami debuted on Sunday night to disappointing ratings, landing less than 2.2 million viewers.

So, why is the Kardashian TV dynasty failing? My guess is that seeing Kim “ugly-cry” for an hour is much less entertaining than the Gone with the Wind Fabulous-ness over in Atlanta! The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to be the highest rated series of the housewives franchise and continues to bring in over 3.2 million viewers each week!

If you do not read cast members blogs on, you don’t know what you’re missing! All of the housewives update and post weekly blogs after a new episode of their show is aired. This week, NeNe weighed in on the Kenya Moore vs. Phaedra Parks Booty Battle” in her blog:

“Now if I have to choose between a donkey or stallion booty, I will go with a stallion because it just sounds and looks better. But at the end of the day, I don’t want either one of them! The ass I choose is my own. Now may the best ass win! ”

And it seems that being on #TeamNeNe has gotten the stripper turned actress very far! The New Normal actress rubbed elbows with many A-list celebrities last week on the Golden Globes red carpet.


Speaking of asses, will we be seeing any Persian bare behinds in the future? Perhaps! Shahs of Sunset star, Mike Shouhed has announced that he will, in fact, be posing for skin mag, Playgirl.

“I’m very excited to announce that I’ve actually agreed to accept Playgirl’s offer,” Shouhed said on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens LIVE on Sunday. “It took a lot of soul-searching, and a lot of thinking. First of all, I’m flattered because not only am I going to be showing of for Playgirl, but it’s their 40th year birthday and I’m in good company, following in the footsteps of Pierce Brosnan and Brad Pitt.”

So, will it be full frontal? “Listen, it’s a work in progress,” Mike told Andy.

In other Shahs news, Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi has officially called off her engagement to Omid Kalantar.

“We’re actually in a rocky place. We both jumped the gun a bit, so we’re trying to slow things down,” GG admitted to Wetpaint in a recent interview. “No wedding plans right now. I’m seeing what happens.”

Polish up those pumps, fashionistas! All new seasons of The Rachel Zoe Project and It’s a Brad, Brad World return this March! Every Wednesday from 9-11:00pm beginning March 6, 2013 Bravo launches “Fashion Night by Bravo”! I die. Included in the lineup is new series, Dukes of Melrose featuring renowned fashion boutique owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos.

Dukes of Melrose will follow the duo in the world of vintage couture. “Whether it’s bidding on a classic Balenciaga gown at a Parisian auction or finding a chic Fendi handbag in the closet of the Hollywood elite, Cameron and Christos will go to any length to source the créme de la créme for their demanding clientele. In the series premiere, one of Hollywood’s biggest nights, The Oscars, is fast approaching and Cameron and Christos must make their partnership work to dress the most fashion-forward celebrities.” [via press release from Bravo]

It seems like Tarzan isn’t the only beast Melissa Gorga is fighting off!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, tweeted that she met a baby bear in her driveway on January 24th!

Luckily, Melissa survived unscathed. But will she come out in one-piece by the end of the new season of RHONJ? I guess we will have to wait and see…

Are The Real Housewives of New York City gearing up for season six? Unfortunately, not yet! Filming for the new season of RHONY has been pushed back—for the second time—until late February.

“The entire thing is in disarray,” a source told New York Daily News. “They were told one date and it didn’t happen. The last season ended in October and they were told to keep February onwards free. They’ve been waiting weeks to get story lines and plot out the season, but nobody’s called.”

“They are going crazy. They call the network every day demanding answers,” the insider continued.

While the cast has yet to be officially announced, our guess is that season six is likely to have no cast changes.

Which Beverly Hills housewife was spotted kissing a 32-year-old guy? None other than the ever-so-fabulous Adrienne Maloof! People magazine reports that a source recently spotted Adrienne and Sean Stewart, the son of legendary singer Rod Stewart, locking lips outside of a popular Beverly Hills restaurant. Although Adrienne and Sean’s relationship is casual, it is certainly official! The fling “started as a business relationship and now we’re casually dating — it’s casual, real casual,” the 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told People. “He understands my world, the entertainment industry and being a public figure.”

“I’m a modern business woman — I don’t think of age,” the mother of three told the mag.

Sean is no stranger to reality television. Sean first appeared on the reality series, Sons of Hollywood followed by a stint on season 2 of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Adrienne said that Sean’s past struggles with substance abuse, including the use of heroin came “…when he was a young kid… He’s been clean and sober for years.”

Adrienne and ex-husband, surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif reached a divorce settlement agreement in late 2012.

Tell us, is age really “just a number”?

  1. Great update! Thanks! Hmmm…where to start. NeNe is fabulous, really happy for her success. The “booty wars” have bored me from the start…who wants a farm animal ass? Isn’t a stallion’s haunches directly related to supporting his rather large endowment during reproduction?*confused look* I’m soo looking forward to Rachel’s and Brad’s shows returning. I would like to see NY changed to the Ramona and Sonya Hour. And Adriene? Could care less, she was hardly relevent with Paul, certainly not without him. Was I nice and politically correct? If not, excuse me. I tried hard.

  2. Adrienne seems like an intelligent woman who I am sure can date a very successful business or professional man. Oh wait she dumped Paul! I do think dating a much younger guy is making a circus of her life.

  3. Great to hear there is another season of It’s a Brad, Brad World coming. He is so much more likable than Rachel Zoe in my opinion!

  4. Atlanta HW is nothing but a bunch of overrated woman bitching at each other. Adrienne and her druggie boy toy is a joke. She is so worried about her kids yet dates a known drug addict, ok! I am a fan of the Kardashians and like there show (except when mom is on). GG did the right thing by calling off the wedding, way to soon. Mike, who cares! Love reading your blog. Everything I want to know in one spot!! Thank you for that!!!!

  5. Age is absolutly just a number……my husband and i have been marred 4 10 years and he is 12 years younger….i guess i am just a cougar….oh well… he is sexi though!! go adrienne!!!!!!
