We Wanted to be Back On LOL! and Survivor Finale

We Wanted to be Back On LOL! by NMD

After less than a day of fussing, contracts have been signed, ink has dried, and every single New York Housewife will be back for another season.  Perez Hilton ran the headline, “Real Housewives Of New York City Fold To Bravo!” and Ramona responded with “We wanted to back on, LOL”.  She can laugh.  At a half million dollars she can laugh all the way to the bank.  Bravo is spinning it that they gave the ladies a few tidbits – such as hair and makeup on the house.  Bravoratings twitter account, which is pretty much known to be run by Simon Van Kempen (but I’ll throw in a allegedly just because), had an ear to the ground during the entire event.  He confirmed that Bravo pretty much doubled some of the lower salaries (of the new girls) throwing several hundred thousand dollars into the salary pool.

Good for LuAnn de Lessups for hanging in there another season.  LuAnn signed up for the show when she thought it would be a dignified look at the upper crust of New York.  Like many of the housewives of that era, she thought she’d be able to tuck  her dirty laundry out of sight and show viewers a cleaner, sanitized version of her life.  That all got blown to bits in Season 3 when Jill Zarin failed to tell Ramona Singer their phone call was on speaker phone and being taped for the show.  Ramona, in a gush of insensitivity laid the Countess’ private life – divorce, cheating, drunken escapades – bare to viewers.  The Countess, title rich but penny poor, took it on the chin and kept on going.  She survived the Cleaning House after toxic Season 4, and kept a grin on her face when Andy Cohen loaded the cast with a real Princess.  The Countess has provided us with some of the best laughs the show has had to offer over the years, inadvertent or not, and I’ve grown to have a grudging respect for her ability to keep on going despite whatever Bravo or her castmates throw at her.

Sonja’s back again as well.  I’ve grown bored of Sonja’s sorority girl routine, but I know she needs the paycheck and she seems pretty harmless.

As for the three new girls, Carole and Heather are my two favorite housewives, and I’m hoping Aviva redeems herself and becomes watchable.

Survivor Finale

The drama is already starting for the Survivor Finale.  Corinne (last boot before the jury) tweeted this:

“At rehearsal for the live finale I found out pre-jurors are sitting in the audience and not on stage. I’m furious.” 

The show promises to be a really good one, with rumors that someone is out with a medivac already surfacing.

Please no spoilers for the west coast viewers.

    I’m first on the 2nd blog of the day. Yippee. I see Sheree is on WWH tonight. Should be interesting, I’ll tape it to watch when I’m bored.

  2. melthehound says:

    That Corrine is one bitter bitch. I never liked her and her ‘my gay’ bullshit but she’s gone off of the deep end. If she’s stuck in the audience, who cares what she has to say? I’m glad the ‘pre-jurors’ are not on stage, if that’s the truth. They don’t matter in the grand scheme. They all got outplayed.

  3. Mene Seela says:

    Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! We had a blast this weekend with the whole family.

    I just read the comments from the last few days. Wow realhousewifeva that is some story about your Cleveland connection (shivers). A poster’s husband landed a dream job Congrats – is it Lainey? A child was mistreated by an Amtrak employee – why can’t people just keep their hands to themselves? And RHNY was cancelled but now will be on with everyone returning (including Aviva – yuck).

    I’m watching Game of Thrones tonight. Love the dragon lady.

    • Rebecca says:

      We finally got to see Rob’s butt! Yeah!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      HI Mene…no, not mine. Well, he got his job PRAISE THE LORD, back in late October, early November. Nancy’s hubby is hoping to hear soon about an opportunity that he’s excited about. They are still, however, waiting, and it’s looking promising,…but all prayers appreciated. (right Nansaroo?) I don’t know about the child and the Amtrak employee. and yes, all of NY is back!! haha!!

  4. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! Hope you all had a great day!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

    • Rebecca says:

      I’m not ashamed to admit it. I watched The New Normal. I liked it.

      • lizzle says:

        I watched it too! It was a good show. I loved loved loved Shania, the little girl. They should do a show with her on a kid’s network using the same character type. She is that awkward, weird girl that is cool because she does her own thing.

    • melthehound says:

      THe only one I’m sad to see go is Southland. I liked Vegas and The Wedding Band too.

    • chismosa says:

      So sad about Happy Endings, what a phenomenally funny show
      Maybe TBS or someone else can take it.
      But….saw it coming

      No surprise about NBC having the most of the top 4 (well, 5 really)
      Well known to cancel all the time.

      Thanks for laying out the list for us!

    • ramonacoaster says:

      Thanks for the list. There are some good shows on there. I guess that’s why I don’t watch Prime Time shows. What’s the point of getting invested when they cancel it after it starts getting good.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      SOUTHLAND sadness. Monday Morning was pretty cool, too. dangit!!!

    • lizzle says:

      I heard they were going to air the remaining episodes of 666 Park Avenue over the summer. I actually watched that show. It was OK… I am a sucker for supernatural creepiness.

      • Dixie says:

        Go On was a great show. Reminded me of MASH, some very heart warming moments among the funny. NBC should have kept it and worked with it.

    More TV News: This Summer on VH-1

    Couples Therapy Season 3 couples include: Joe Francis & Abby Wilson (Girls Gone Wild), Flavor Flav & Elizabeth Trujillo (Flavor of Love), Chingy & Temple Poteat, Dustin Zito & Heather Marter (The Real World) and Caitlin Lowell & Tyler Baltierra (Teen Mom) will all take a seat on Dr. Jenn Berman’s couch. “VH1 Couples Therapy” is set to premiere Wednesday, June 19 at 10pm with 8, 1-hour episodes.

Kelly. Shamicka Lawrence, recently divorced from comedian/actor Martin Lawrence, joins the group. Begins sometime in July.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Maybe those men should have given more spousal support in exchange for a non-disclosure. I can’t imagine having an disgruntled ex-wife starring on a reality show.

    • melthehound says:

      Dustin Zito is nuckin futs. I wonder if he’s still doing gay porn to pay his bills.

      • BB says:

        Maybe that’s why they need couples therapy? LOL!

      • chismosa says:

        Oh that’s the guy— I saw him on the challenge show, never saw the RW when he was on
        He is WEIRD

        • melthehound says:

          Yep… That one.

          • chismosa says:

            I don’t get the “gay for pay” mentality but he is not the only one.
            How can this girl be with him securely? Yikers

            • melthehound says:

              He is likely Bi but won’t admit it. On his RW season, he took great exception to even being remotely called, ‘gay’.. Before he went into the RW house he was a member of some site, kind of like a big brother house where everyone is filmed, that featured only men. He tried to hide his past from the housemates but someone did a google on him and found him out. I don’t remember who.

              I don’t get it either.. Even for money, as a straight man, No Way.

  7. chismosa says:

    I’m happy Tough Love is back on VH1, love that show.

    Is anyone else as peeved as I am that I have to keep watching that bug-eyed guy on Mad Men? Ted, Peggy’s boss? Blech/vomit
    He ruined Judging Amy for me too

    • Mene Seela says:

      Judging Amy! That’s how I know him. Glad you cleared that up. He doesn’t bug (eye) me but he is no equal to Don or Jon Hamm.
      BTW what the hell is going on with Don? My hubs says he’s cracking up.

      • chismosa says:

        Hi Mene— I haven’t watched yet, will soon, but in all honesty Don’s character should be headed downhill. Next season is THE END ! Lol

  8. Apparently this season of Survivor was filmed around 10 months ago – so Brenda must have gotten pregnant right after she got back to the US.

  9. Well – the spoiler was that Erik was so devastated by Brenda’s blindside that he quit. I guess that was wrong.

  10. ramonacoaster says:

    Revenge finale was so good. I can’t wait to see what happens next season.

  11. Nancy says:

    I hope everyone had a great mother’s day. We spent the day with my sister and had a lovely time.

  12. lillybee says:

    I loved Call the Midwife tonight.

  13. SCGirl says:

    Well Gah! I can’t believe that Southland got cancelled…best show on television. The writing was excellent and the characters were so well developed. This will be the second show that I really enjoyed with great writing and character development that got cancelled…the other show was Boss. I can’t stand Kelsey Grammar, but Boss was so good that I actually forgot I was watching a show staring him. I can’t understand how some of the crap on TV never gets cancelled…..

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I got to watch the first season of Starz cause directv was doing a promotion at the time and I loved BOSS. just loved it. No kidding about forgetting it was Kelsey…cause gosh darn it, the man CAN ACT. go figure.

  14. Mene Seela says:

    Is anyone watching Celeb Apprentice? Penn Teller is amazing. I never would have thought that of him.

    • chismosa says:

      Mene i never knew him before this show- i mean i knew who he was, just not more than that— and love him after this show. Even the first time he was on, i sort of got where he was coming from

  15. lillybee says:

    I am happy about who won Survivor.

  16. TexasTart says:

    A few Mothers Day tweets…a little late. I picked this one to show you sje doesn’t always say holla! Ha ha.

  23. TexasTart says:

    Glad to hear NY worked it out because I liked S5 a lot….well not Aviva, but there’s always one bad apple. I will be happy when they are on my TV!

    NMD is without internet this morning.. Here is the new post. Survivor! Have a good day.
