It’s no secret that the Real Housewives of New York franchise is in serious turmoil as its ratings are plummeting week by week.

Ratings for the New York Housewives franchise have reached an all-time low, with the most recent episode only earning 764,000 live viewers.

As a result, Bravo has informed the cast members that filming for the season 13 reunion has been delayed from August 5 until at least September. They also told the cast that filming for season 14 wouldn’t begin until 2022.

This all came to light after a report from Radar Online claimed that OG Housewife Ramona Singer was getting kicked to the curb.

Radar Online recently claimed that Ramona was “too expensive” for Bravo to keep on since she’s been a main star on the show since the beginning. The report also claimed that Ramona’s “behavior isn’t great TV anymore.”

However, DailyMail’s source insists that Ramona isn’t getting fired but notes that some New York Housewives should prepare themselves.

The source added, “Just like OC, you can expect a cast shakeup, though. This show can be saved. Look at how great Beverly Hills is now.”

All of this got us thinking about casting for season 14 of RHONY. We decided to do some polls on our Instagram Story to see which New York Housewives fans want back for another season of drama.

The results of our polls were quite interesting. Fans all agree that RHONY needs a major casting shakeup. They also agree that they aren’t enjoying this season of the show at all.

As for which Housewives they want to go and which they want to stay, that’s a whole another story. Take a look at the results to see for yourself.

Meanwhile, fans are divided on whether or not they think Bravo is planning to fire Ramona.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Fans dub Eboni K. Williams the scapegoat for 'Housewives' low ratings

Wonderwall 15 July, 2021 - 01:10pm

The ways many fans see it, the "Housewives" should be playful, fun and even chaotic, and Bravo junkies, at least according to social media, believe that Eboni is making the show too serious with her heavy storylines and opinions. Throughout the season the former "Fox News" host has constantly brought up racial issues, to a point where viewers have found it unnatural and unnecessarily combative at times.

While fans can point fingers all day long, it's clear that something isn't working. The Daily Mail reported that the April 6 episode of "RHONY" garnered 764,000 live viewers, making it the show's lowest-rated episode ever.

Although social media has issues with different cast members, Eboni is clearly the primary scapegoat.

"Eboni is bringing this show down @Andy. I want to watch shows that are lighthearted. This is too deep and I think that's why ratings are down," one person tweeted at executive producer Andy Cohen. "Bring back FUN!!!"

Another said, "Not my problem ratings dropped because of you Eboni!  Not watching any more!"

TMZ reported, "There's clearly a rift growing, as Eboni says she feels demonized by some of the 'Housewives' and some viewers."

Interestingly, the reality show has delved into heavy topics before, including mental health, alcoholism, bankruptcy and divorce. Because of this, Eboni tells TMZ that race-related conversations fit within the boundaries.

To be fair, Eboni has her supporters, many of whom believe she's actually highlighting real world problems.

"Gotta love when ratings fall because real life issues are too much for reality tv," one person said. "The season isn't great, but it's because most of the cast is stale, with fake friendships, and no storyline. At least Eboni brings something to the show."

Another added, "I swear the low ratings are because they don't like the fact that eboni is schooling them ladies on racism."

Mark Hoppus is getting more detailed about his cancer diagnosis.

In a recent Twitch Q&A with fans in Chile, the Blink-182 bassist said he has "diffuse large B-cell lymphoma."

"My classification is stage IV-A, which means, as I understand it, it's entered four parts of my body. I don't know how exactly they determine the four part of it, but it's entered enough parts of my body that I'm stage IV, which I think is the highest that it goes," he said. "So, I'm stage IV-A…The cancer isn't bone-related, it's blood-related. My blood's trying to kill me."

The rocker first revealed that he had cancer last month, and noted that he had been undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

"Let me tell you something that is real and it absolutely sucks: A side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called 'chemo brain,'" he explained. "And for me, I forget things that I should have on-call, like names, song titles, anything. People will be talking to me and five minutes later I'll ask them a question, and they'll be like, 'I just told you that five minutes ago.'"

In detailing what he's been going through, he said, "The first chemo, I felt like I was a zombie that fell onto an electric fence and was just being shocked. The second round of chemo, I just felt very weak and tired. Really just like the worst flu ever. The third round of chemo, I started retching. Nauseous and that whole thing."

Mark mentioned that he might undergo a bone marrow transplant if the chemo doesn't work. 

"We're beating this cancer," he said. "It's just a matter of time."

On July 4, Mark shared a photo with a bald head, a result of the treatments. He laughed off his new look.

"I want to get the absolute worst toupée," he says, "so that it's obviously not my hair, and just walk around and see how people look at me."

According to the Lymphoma Research Foundation, more than 18,000 Americans are diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma annually. It's the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the country.

Lynne Spears has found herself in the crosshairs of her daughter's passionate fans after a cryptic Instagram post. 

After a judge granted Britney Spears the right to hire her own attorney in her conservatorship battle, Lynne took to social media to post about "darkness."

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it," the message read.

Although it's possible the message wasn't intended to have a deeper meaning, Britney's fans found the timing of the post to be suspicious, and they let loose in the comments section.

"Free Britney. She said she wanted to sue her family. That means YOU too. Buckle up!," one person said. Another, referring to the conservatorship, said, "You had 13 years to save her and did absolutely nothing….."

Fans used snake emojis and quoted Britney's words from her bombshell testimony last month in which she said, "My whole family did nothing."

In short, the vast majority of fans accused Lynne of trying to play the proverbial good cop in the situation while suggesting her hands aren't clean.

Britney seems to be on track to possibly ending the 13-year albatross that's guided her life and life decisions. On July 14, a judge allowed the pop star to hire her own attorney, mega-lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart, in an attempt to remove her father, Jamie Spears, from the conservatorship, as he currently controls her estate.

The conservatorship, Britney said in court via a phone call this week, "is allowing my dad to ruin my life."

While Britney certainly has issues with her mother, her most vitriolic feelings are reserved for Jamie. 

"I'm here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse," she cried.

In her June hearing, he said her father should "be in jail" and called the conservatorship "abusive." She even argued that he liked watching her suffer.

Britney's new attorney has already said he would be filing a petition to remove Jamie from the conservatorship.

Hoda Kotb and her fiancé, Joel Schiffman, still have baby fever, and they are trying to adopt a third child. However, the process of adoption is moving very slowly right now, and the coronavirus pandemic seems to be having an effect.

"I thought it would be a different game," the "Today" host said while on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen."

"They said that a lot of people who maybe normally would feel like it would be something they'd want to do — have a child and give it to someone to raise because they couldn't — are holding on to things because they don't have anything in that moment," she said. "That's what I've heard from our agency."

She continued, "Everything's slow but they say wait wisely and just be, so we're just going to be."

Last fall, Hoda revealed that she and Joel had filled adoption paperwork for a third child. They certainly know the process, as they adopted their first daughter, Haley, in 2017 and their second daughter, Hope, in 2019.

"When I first got Haley, I adopted her in my 50s and I called Robin Roberts and I said, 'Robin, can you believe?'" Hoda told Andy. "I said, 'This is so crazy. I'm 50. I have a baby.' And she said, 'Hold on, I'm gonna tell you what that baby is.' I said, 'What?' She said, 'That baby is right on time.'"

Sharna Burgess is in love and she doesn't care who knows it. 

On July 15, the "Dancing With The Stars" pro publicly gushed about her beau, Brian Austin Green, to celebrate his 48th birthday. She admitted that the post was "mushy."

"You are my best friend and my favorite human, it's hard to imagine before you because this somehow feels like it just always was. I truly never knew it could be like this. That my happiness could find a whole new level. That life and love and all things in between could feel so inexplicably deep and connected and transparent and …. Right," she captioned a series of images of the actor, some of which show him as a child.  

"Loving you is the easiest thing I've ever done and I'll celebrate your existence today and all days, In all the ways, always. I love you, HAPPY FRICKEN BIRTHDAY!!!" she continued. "Cute as hell from birth and you only keep getting better 🥰 You deserve everything you've ever wanted, dreamed of, or needed. I know there is so much exciting stuff ahead for you, and I can't wait to witness it."

In ending her loved up post, Sharna noted that the duo was headed to deep sea dive the Great White sharks, which she called "the first of many crazy adventures together." Brian also commented on their planned activity on her Instagram Story, which was her Christmas gift to him. 

The "Beverly Hill 90210" star and Sharna were first linked in late 2020. They confirmed their romance in January. 

"On our first date, we just completely lost track of time and the same thing happened the next time," he told People magazine. "It became something noticeably different from anything I'd ever experienced before."

Just last week, Brian shared his own mushy Instagram tribute to Sharna while posting a photo of them kissing.

"It's been a really long time since I've been with someone I can truly share life with," he wrote. She replied, "There's no one else I could ever imagine sharing it with. I love you."  

Jason Biggs is owning up to jokes he previously made at Courtney Stodden's expense, and he's issued an apology.

 The "American Pie" star sent the reality TV star a direct message on social media this week in which he acknowledged that his jokes were in poor taste and potentially hurtful.

"Hi Courtney — I wanted to drop you a note to say that I'm sorry for any tweet that I made in the past that may have hurt your feelings. They were meant as jokes — but they were at your expense, and knowing how you feel, that makes them not funny at all," he wrote. "I am trying my best these days to live a clean and sober life, one in which I make good and healthy decisions — and that means accountability for the bad decisions I've made in the past. I wish you nothing but the best and happiness and success always. Xo Jason."

Courtney, who identifies as non-binary, shared the message to their Instagram and applauded the actor for his words.

 "This is what a personal apology looks like. Everyone makes mistakes but not everyone takes real accountability," Courtney wrote. "Jason, I felt this. I wish you love and immense success to you and your family."

Courtney didn't mention Chrissy Teigen in the new Instagram caption, but it was clear that they were taking a jab at the former Sports Illustrated model. The "Lip Sync Battle" host has been vilified of late after old, vile tweets she sent to Courtney resurfaced. Chrissy attempted to apologize, but Courtney felt that apology was insincere (many fans agreed). Amid all this, many people called for Chrissy to be "canceled."

Since the controversy, Chrissy has largely retreated from the public eye. On July 14, she posted a lengthy message to social media about being a part of the "cancel club."

"Going outside sucks and doesn't feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I'm handling this now isn't the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay," she wrote. 

Being a part of the "cancel club," she said, "is a fascinating thing," and she's "learned a whollllle lot" from it.

"Only a few understand it and it's impossible to know til you're in it," the "Cravings" cookbook author continued. "And it's hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you've clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning. But there never is here anyhow."

"All I know is I love you guys, I miss you guys, and I just needed an honest moment with you because I'm just … tired of being sick with myself all day," the statement said. "I don't even know if it's good to say any of this because it's gonna get brutally picked apart but I dunno. I can't do this silent sh– anymore! If you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch!"

Mila Kunis is keeping Ashton Kutcher grounded. 

Just days after Sir Richard Branson celebrated his historic and successful flight to the edge of space aboard his Virgin Galactic ship, the "Two and a Half Men" actor revealed that he was supposed to be a passenger on the next Virgin flight to space, but his wife talked him out of it. 

"When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children, so I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic," he told Cheddar News. "I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight."

Still, Ashton has not given up on his desire to visit the great beyond.

"At some point, I'm going to space," he said. 

The thought of civilians going to space used to be farfetched, but that's no longer the case, as several companies are planning to offer space tourism, including Virgin, Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin company and Elon Musk's SpaceX company. 

On July 11, as he descended from the edge of space, Sir Richard sent out a statement about his voyage. 

"Now I'm looking down at our beautiful spaceport. Congratulations to everybody for creating such a beautiful, beautiful place," he said. "Congratulations to all of our team at Virgin Galactic for 17 years of hard, hard work to get us this far."

Blue Origin has a space mission set for July 20, and its famed owner will be aboard the flight. 

AJ McLean said he was heartbroken after his most recent interaction with Britney Spears at a Los Angeles bakery.

While on SiriusXM's "Andy Cohen Live," the Backstreet Boy noted that he and the pop star live in the same area and run into each other from time to time. Most recently, AJ said he bumped into Brit at a cupcake store. 

"The last time I saw her, it broke my heart," he said. "Went in, she was there, she looked right at me and I was like, 'Hey, it's AJ.' And she just kind of had this glass face. Like, she just didn't know who was there."

Britney and AJ, of course, have known each other for decades as they found stardom around the same time. 

After a moment of pleasantries, "she realized it was me," AJ said.

"We hugged and we talked for a brief moment," he said. "I could just see that this wasn't her. Like, I'm not looking at the person I knew from years and years ago."

In the chat, AJ made it clear that he stands with Britney and believes the conservatorship that's guided her life is "insane."

"I am 100 percent team Britney," he said. "Back in the beginning of this conservatorship, when everything happened about 13 years ago, I could kind of empathize in that moment maybe with her family, with how things transpired, but for it to go on this long is absolutely asinine. I think it's insane. It is completely brutal… It's grotesque."

Love was quite literally in the air when Nicolas Cage met his wife, Riko Shibata.

The actor quietly tied the knot for the fifth time in February in Las Vegas, but little else is known about his relationship with his missus. While attending the premiere of his latest film "Pig," the actor noted that his and Riko's shared love of animals — especially exotic animals — helped spark their romance and take it to new heights.

"We met in Japan and I thought she was stunning when I met her. We had a lot in common," he told "Entertainment Tonight." "She likes animals too, so I asked her, 'Do you have any pets?' And she said, 'Yes, I have flying squirrels.' She had two sugar gliders. I thought, 'That's it. This this could work out.'"

Their romance quickly soared. Although Nic, 57, and Riko married in February, they managed to keep their nuptials secret for several weeks. As speculation about a possible marriage grew, Nic's rep told People magazine that the duo had a "very small and intimate wedding at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas."

July 13 marked the first time the couple has been photographed together on the red carpet.

"I'm quite excited to take a picture with her," the Oscar winner told "ET."
