  1. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Kenya and Porsha should be on the end. They're the newest cast members. I think it makes perfect sense how it is except I'd have Kandi standing next to Nene! Kandi is the unspoken MVP of this franchise.
  2. Married to Medicine

    I co-sign the Mariah comments. It's not fair at all. Beyond that it looks good. I'm glad tired ass Lisa Nicole is gone! Thank the lord!! After Jackie's husband dogged her the [!@#$%^&*] out last season I'm not here for this. Jackie and Simone will always be my favorites and I don't want anything bad to happen to them. They're two of my favorite reality tv people ever. They're classy, they throw good shade and they're real. Jackie better [!@#$%^&*] leave Curtis this time. I'm done with this!
  3. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Okay there is a lot to unpack! RHOA - I loved the promo and I'm excited to see the girls back. The chemistry looks good! I also like that they have a good stable of friends with Marlo and Kim big in the thick of things. I have no complaints and no worries. I look forward to Nene/Buick, anything with Kim, Sheree's inmate lover and Kenya's marriage storyline. Side Note: Kandi's spin off looks FIRE! I feel like that drama will dilute her story a little bit. Imagine if one or two of the Xscape ladies joined the RHOA cast! But that would probably put an end to any reunion with the fighting that is sure to happen in that scenario. RHOC - I know many don't like Lydia or Peggy both for their actions and some beliefs, but I think both have been good additions to the cast. Peggy's biggest issue is a language barrier, but I still enjoy her. As the season goes on and the ladies finally interact it's getting juicy and I look forward to each episode. Shannon has completely lost it and it was so obvious this week as Lydia perfectly pointed out she didn't want to become the odd woman out. I LOVE that Lydia see's her for what she is and doesn't pull any punches. RHOD - The show is so much more entertaining and that tea party was hilarious! Kameron continuously going after Brandi killed me. She plays dumb but you can definitely see that the wheels are turning in that head. Next week the Cary/Mark story heats up with Leanne accusing Mark of getting head at Round Up, a popular gay bar in Dallas. The thing is, I don't doubt it, but I also don't look forward to another story like this. In general I find this group to be enjoyable, I still say if the cast was more diverse they'd be able to reach a larger audience.

    Peggy has been very clear the women just want to stir the pot. She specifically told Shannon that she got tested for the gene and didn't have it, but she still had the double mastectomy just to be cautious since she watched her mother die of breast cancer. It doesn't get more clear than that which is why it frustrates me that we keep hearing the wives whisper like she's lying when she's been very clear.
  5. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Stephanie tweeted the blog she was referring to and Brandi completely lied about what was said and the context. It HAS to be something else that caused this fight that they aren't saying.
  6. Victoria Rowell's Rich and the Ruthless

    ABC News did an article on the show and announced its been renewed for another season.
  7. B&B Actor Announces Departure

    They've already sent out the casting notice, this just confirms it is Zende.
  8. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Looks like Dallas is still a flop! Season two with a housewives lead in only scored around 800,000 viewers. I will join the chorus and say I enjoyed the premiere and the season does look good, but I still maintain if this show actually represented Dallas it would be more successful. Potomac was able to find its own place after RHOA went off the air and people genuinely enjoy it. There is simply no need for RHOD the way it's presented. This was their time to add some Hispanic housewives or a black housewife. These women all look the same and are very bland. They're going after one demographic that has no reason to watch when they already have superior RHOC, NYC and BH.
  9. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    See I don't see it as filler. This episode for example had some strides with Peggy continuing to upset the ladies, Meghan showing herself to be more two faced and bitchy and the Vicki/Tamra/Shannon story is building. I feel like each week the stories are building towards several collisions. I'm also very curious what will happen with Kelly bc we know she's going to have a tearful makeup with Shannon later on. This season is very Knots Landing as Andy would say, building and building.
  10. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    I disagree! I still love OC. It's a slow build but more organic than the others. I like that they aren't all always filming together. I don't need forced fake dinners in every episode for drama. I much prefer it this way however unpopular it may be. I also love Lydia and Peggy as well. Their family scenes work for me and their interactions as well. It's a shame Peggy probably won't stick around because I LOVE her. She's funny and different and I love how she is so quick to shut down their petty nonsense, which is clearly why they hate her. I can't wait til the drama really starts with her.
  11. Basketball Wives on VH1

    I love you but how can you be disappointed in Jennifer as if that wasn't how she was the entire time she was on? She ain't got no personality or opinion on anything other than what she feels she's supposed to think to stay on Evelyn's good side! She's always disappointed me! Overall I'll say I loved this reunion. They covered everything and it had some good moments. They're setting themselves up for a good next season if they play it right. Keep that main cast and of the supporting players I'd make Haziel a housewife and MAYBE keep BJ as a Friend. I just hope now that they have a solid cast we don't have to suffer through half a season of trial and error. I don't want 20 friends. I also would say from episode one that Baller Wives is kinda a dud and the two girls from it came off better on Basketball Wives than their own show. It just felt a little boring and forced for me.
  12. Y&R: Old Articles

    Yes the song went perfectly. I was happy the crowd enjoyed it and surprisingly a lot of people knew what I was doing even though I was the only one who did a daytime soap. Victoria also was my tweet about it and she retweeted it twice and also talked about it. I was happy to see that.
  13. Still amazes me Daniel Goddard is so upset with his current storyline when it has him so high in the episode counts! This is golden for him.
  14. Y&R: Old Articles

    Here's a video from my show this week! I judge a contest called Drag Me To Fame and this week the challenge was soap operas so I recreated a scene from Y&R with Drucilla and Lillie Belle. I wish I had the full thing, but only managed to get the first half. Here it is:
  15. Y&R: Sally Sussman Speaks!!!

    I agree. This interview just creates more questions than anything because she clearly isn't telling the full story. We know she didn't have full autonomy so why say that? But in general I think it speaks volumes about Sony/CBS that they'd hire someone without giving them a chance to create a long term story. I imagine that's likely how they've been picking all of their past HWs and that is why the show is as bad as it is.
  16. HULU

    How would yall class Hulu for soaps? I had it before and really enjoyed it. I know they have my Real Housewives and some good food programs but I know AMC and OLTL got pulled and I think the british soaps too. Right now I use Amazon Prime primarily to re-watch Dynasty, but I wanna get a streaming service with some soap options.
  17. Victoria Rowell's Rich and the Ruthless

    I'm going to wait until the show has aired a few more episodes so I only have to pay for one month of that subscription lol. On the subject of production values, I feel all of you, but as others have said if she could've gotten a bigger budget and bigger network she would have. Nobody expected her to be able to pull this off as blacklisted as she was, so I applaud her for getting it off the ground period. If it's successful and gets a second season hopefully the budget is bigger or she can get another project that is bigger. I love that she merged all of her worlds together by having key Y&R co-stars with her as well as people she worked with in primetime and film. She pulled off something that is truly a remarkable accomplishment and for that alone I'm proud of her!
  18. Basketball Wives on VH1

    I didn't realize the show was doing an old school soap crossover. The two new wives in Miami are going to be on the spin-off Baller Wives, which is centered around footballers wives and based in Miami. The promos for it look good too! I'm glad because I really liked both of them so it'll be nice for them to have their own show.
  19. Basketball Wives on VH1

    When her daughter appeared on a previous season she told the story about how Jackie treated her and the preferred daughter (Chantel is it?) confirmed what her sister said was true. This is why I can't get behind Jackie in the fight with Evelyn. She brought that stuff on camera on this show! It's not a lie and has been a featured story.
  20. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Nene has been pushing hard to get ride of Toyota and even excluding her from events so I wouldn't be surprised if she got Marlo a spot in hopes of making that happen. Of course it's still early in filming so we have to see but if she continues to film and goes on all the trips with them then it's likely she'll have a peach. Previously she's popped up here and there the past few years. This is the first one where she may film it all.
  21. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Call me crazy, because this IS a reach but I think Marlo may have a peach! She reposted the cast pic in San Francisco which Andy also tweeted and she captioned it "This is how #RHOA do a girls trip?" Of course it could mean nothing but considering Nene and Kim both mentioned their peaches (or lack of in Kim's case) when announcing their returns it made me think.
  22. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    The reason is seems like they're phasing Meghan out is because she was meant to be a Friend this season, but the feud with Peggy ended up elevating her role. That's why it took until now for her to finally appear in a scene with the housewives. Everything in the first three episodes was filmed later.
  23. Basketball Wives on VH1

    Finale is next week so I decided to check Wikipedia to see how many episodes the reunion will be (answer: one). One thing I noticed was that the cast overhaul seemed to mostly be successful. While last season the highest rated episode only had 1.82 million viewers with many hovering around 1.05-1.20 million (with one episode getting under a million viewers), this season almost every episode is over 2 million in viewers and the ones that are in the one million range are close to 2 million. Based on that it seems like they had reason to do it and it worked.
  24. From his Wikipedia about his tenure at Brookside: "Over nearly a decade, he worked his way up to become the show's producer in the early 1990s. His tenure was criticised for taking the show away from its social realist roots towards a more sensationalist, ratings-chasing format. He achieved record ratings for the series and for Channel 4."
  25. Going back to Mal Young, does anybody think it's a good idea for him to be EP and HW? Maria Arena Bell did it and we all know how that went. When Paul Rauch joined I do think there was an improvement from her not being in charge of everything. Brad Bell on B&B has always been a disaster in both roles and at this point should just be EP. My thing is, if as good a writer as Bill Bell was he had an EP, anybody should. It's just too much to produce five episodes a week and also be in charge of story. It's a recipe for disaster.
