Those Jersey “Real Housewives” are quickly becoming infamous for something other than their catfights, and that would be their ratings.
They set a record earlier this year when a few members of the cast got into a weave-snatching scuffle, and they did it again with the first part of the reunion special, which aired on Monday.
That “Housewives” episode eclipsed all others in the multi-city “Real Housewives” franchise, pulling in 3.9 million viewers, which also made it the No. 1 cable telecast of the day for adults 18-49.
With ratings like those, it’s no wonder that rumors are floating that some cast members are trying to up their pay.
The second part of the reunion will air Monday, September 6 at 9 p.m. - think they'll be able to set another record?
