OC Housewives get in a crazy fight as Bravo moves Atlanta to Sunday nights

Two cast members of the original The Real Housewives got into a major brawl in front of Bravo’s cameras at a wrap party Saturday. Meanwhile, with the franchise continuing to expand to other cities, Bravo is expanding to a new night: Sundays.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta will debut on Sundays on Nov. 7, when it will air at 10 p.m. Bravo president Frances Berwick said, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that “We’re doing this now that we know we have a firm following for Real Housewives of Atlanta. We have been reducing our reliance on acquisitions and building our original programming — all those good things that differentiate us.”

As to The Real Housewives of Orange County cast members’ fight, Radar reports that a wrap party included “Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough throwing wine at each other and the encounter turning physical,” which happened after Tamra tried to give Jeana a cease and desist letter from her attorney about Jeana’s interviews that mention Tamra.

The argument included the two women throwing glasses of wine on and at each other, although at least one bystander got hit instead, and one person there told Radar, “If the cameras caught half of what happened Saturday night it’s going to be the craziest episode of Real Housewives anyone has ever seen.”

The Sing-Off loses its star

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
