The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 1 Review: Stronger Than Ever

18 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

In life we are often reminded of 'that which doesn't kill us, makes us stronger'. If you happen to be going through troubled times, you often don't see a difficult experience as an opportunity for growth.

This realization doesn't occur until after the dust settles. That is usually when we gain true perspective.

I think the underlying theme of the first Episode is actually all about strength, but not just in the obvious way as suggested in the title; 'Stronger than Ever'.

I think we see a lot of strength in many of the ladies in this Episode, but let's dig a bit deeper.

The first few scenes in Episode 1 touch base with the ladies that have returned for another Season. We see Lisa Vanderpump and husband Ken Todd hosting a dinner at their restaurant 'Sur' in West Hollywood.

Lisa has invited good friend Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky, »

TV News Roundup: ‘Walking Dead’ Episode 2 Ratings Falter, ‘The Young Pope’ Gets a Premiere Date

1 November 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In today’s TV news roundup, “The Walking Dead” saw a bigger drop that usual in its live-same-day ratings for the second episode of the season, and a whole lot of premiere dates were set, including HBO’s “The Young Pope” and the next round of “The Bachelor.”

Ratings

The Walking Dead” is still one of the biggest things on television. But the second episode of Season 7 was a little less big than might have been expected, nabbing 12.46 million total viewers and an impressive 6.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. That was about a 27 percent dip from the premiere (17 million, 8.4 demo rating); most other second episodes tend to see drop-offs in the lower double-digits. Of course, the “Walking Dead” demo rating still beats every scripted TV series by a walker-infested mile, no small feat for a show in its seventh season.

It’s tough to parse the reason for the bigger dip than usual between the season »

Pete Burns obituary

25 October 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lead singer with Dead Or Alive best known for their 1985 hit You Spin Me Round who later became a reality TV star

Originally best known for his 1985 chart-topper You Spin Me Round (Like a Record), made with his band Dead Or Alive, Pete Burns later became a reality TV star, coming fifth in the final of Celebrity Big Brother in 2006, as well as a living advertisement for the dangers of plastic surgery. Burns, who has died of a heart attack aged 57, claimed to have undergone 300 surgical procedures, many of them in an attempt to repair previous botched efforts.

His heyday as a pop star in the mid-1980s coincided with the rise of the “New Pop” epitomised by Boy George and Culture Club, Wham! and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. With his ambiguous sexuality, androgynous look and spectacular fashion choices, Burns, after several years of trying, found himself in the right place at the right time. »
