Jersey Housewives Brawl Goes Into Bonus Rounds

  • 8comments

There’s nothing like a catfight to bring out the best in Bravo. The cable channel is apparently so pleased with the table-clearing brawl that broke out earlier this week in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey that the network put together four more hours of mayhem.

The first hour, premiering tonight (6/18) at 9 eastern, repackages the fur-flying finale into "The Real Housewives of New Jersey: The Last Supper." Bravo says this new special focuses squarely on that final feast, in which Danielle clashed with Teresa over Danielle’s past, with “new” footage (basically the stuff that was cut from the finale) and commentary from the participants and their families.

Even better, given the dysfunctional relationships on this series, Bravo has produced a two-part “reunion” capper that will air in two parts next week, Tuesday and Thursday. This should be the mother of all reunion specials.

And finally, Bravo has found enough editing-room clippings (you just have to sweep them up off the floor and piece them together, apparently) to paste together a fourth and final extra hour subtitled “The Lost Footage.” This one is scheduled for Thursday, July 9.

. . . Also on tonight: Two "celebrities" (and we apply the term loosely when talking about this show) on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, are due for elimination tonight on NBC (8 p.m. eastern). And in case you haven't had the time to keep up with it (for which you should probably be either ashamed or congratulated), the show's two most talked-about contestants, reality TV icons Spencer and Heidi Pratt (aka "Speidi"), are now officially gone, so don't tune in tonight expecting to see them. . . . Two of the final 18 contestants will get voted off <"http://www.tv.com/so-you-think-you-can-dance/show/35810/summary.html?">So You Think You Can Dance, 9 p.m. eastern time on Fox. Kristinia DeBarge is scheduled to sing "Good-bye" -- appropriately enough.
