9. Vanderpump Rules Ratings

Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules returned for Season 9 in 2021 after firing numerous cast members amid the height of the Black Lives Matters movement. The show has returned with a decrease in live ratings which may be why so many Bravo fans seem eager to look up the numbers.

8. Selling Sunset Drama: Emma Hernan Still Dating Christine Quinn’s Ex (EXCLUSIVE)

Netflix’s Selling Sunset returned with Season 4 this fall and TV Deets was at the centre of the drama! OK, well maybe that is a slight exaggeration but judging by the number of views on this story, fans of the Netflix reality show were really interested in what really went on between Christine Quinn and Season 4 newcomer Emma Hernan. I

The attention on this exclusive story came following S04E07 which features a TV Deets article being thrown on the screen to show what is going on with Christine and the other women. Click Here to read that article.

In the piece, sources revealed that Emma is in fact still dating Christine’s ex despite publicly suggesting otherwise. We even received exclusive pics of the couple in order to help assist in confirming the story.

7. Real Housewives Of Orange County Ratings

After what can only be described as an awful Season 15 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the Bravo show returned just a few weeks ago with former star Heather Dubrow at the centre of the group. Despite premiering to great numbers, Season 16 has since steadily declined, with former cast member Kelly Dodd using TV Deets‘ stats in order to question Andy Cohen on the success of the show’s reported reboot. It’s no surprise that RHOC fans are eagerly looking up the ratings for both seasons.

6. Real Housewives Of Dubai Cast Revealed: Meet The Rumoured Housewives

When Bravo announced that they are expanding the Real Housewives franchise to Dubai, fans weren’t exactly sure what to think considering the country’s record on human rights, including those of the LGBTQ community. But with former Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury leading the pack, the show is sure to be among the most-talked about reality TV shows when it debuts later this year.

5. Selling Sunset Season 4 Review: Just Call It The Christine Quinn Show

Due to being featured on Season 4, TV Deets received advanced copies of Selling Sunset and readers seemed intrigued by the fact that the entire season seemed to focus around Christine Quinn, despite the other women swearing up and down that she has no impact on their lives.

The drama seems to have worked, with the season quickly becoming one of Netflix’s most-watched reality shows of the year. Selling Tampa, the first in a series of new spinoffs, dropped its first season on Netflix back in December.

4. Porsha’s Family Matters Ratings

When former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams announced she was leaving the franchise, it certainly shocked fans. But, their worries were soon put to rest when Bravo announced her own solo show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha’s Family Matters. The combination of a juicy storyline and some messy editing has fans tuning into the spinoff each week—and looking up the show’s stats.

3. Selling Sunset Season 4: Why Is Heather Rae So Mad At Christine Quinn?

As mentioned, Season 4 of the Netflix real estate reality series focuses heavily on Christine Quinn and her issues with the other female agents, including Heather Rae El-Moussa. After referring to Heather and her now-husband Tarek El-Moussa as “Speidi” (yes, as in Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag of The Hills), things kicked off between the two agents, leading to the demise of whatever relationship they had left.

2. Kelly Dodd And Andy Cohen Feud Over RHOC Ratings… But Who’s Right?

Kelly Dodd can’t seem to move on from leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County and according to the hits on this story, it seems like the fans aren’t over her exit, either. Using TV Deets’ stats to clap back at Andy Cohen, the two got into a back-and-forth over ratings. While both Kelly and Andy made points, Kelly actually wins this battle.
