Not so much to replace Bravo, but to vary our programming a bit. And by programming, I mean sometimes we need to let someone other than Andy Cohen (Happy Birthday, Andrew!) program us. I’ve been doing this behind your back, without sharing my dalliances on the blog, for a while now. Here are my suggestions. Continue reading

Time for a new Don’t Be Tardy…I wish they would do the new episode at 9 instead of 9:30. Kim had great ratings for the premiere, about 1.2 million viewers. I am in love with Shun, Kim’s stylist. Kim wants to recreate her wedding in five days and Shun smiles knowing this is batshit crazy. Kim wants to be on Dancing with the Stars yet can’t dance even a little bit around when Shun tries to teach her a basic step together step thing. Kim and Shun are adorable together.

Something is going on with Rosie O’ Donnell and The Rosie Show on OWN. Shortly after Rosie was on Watch What Happens Live, which was sort of unexpected but a good episode, she completely revamped her talk show on OWN to be more like WWHL. She totally scraped the studio audience, got rid of all the game shows and hoop-de-la and changed the format to an intimate one on one interview with only one or two guests. It was actually pretty good. Ratings are not so good. Now, she has sold her 6000 sq ft Chicago home for 2.5 million dollars and is living in a corporate apartment. Despite her publicist saying that she has no plans to leave The Rosie Show or Chicago, it sure is starting to look like she is getting prepared for a quick exit. Have any of you seen the show?
Update: Chicago source Chitown Shelley confirms that The Rosie Show is shutting down.
here is the scoop from chicago; i have a close friend who works for the show, but behind the scenes. they were all told their services would no longer be needed after may, so they have already begun job hunting. even if show continues, it will not be originating in chicago. everyone seems to like new format better, but it seems to be too little, too late.
