“Sin City Rules:” Will the Show Survive?
That’s the question on everyone’s mind. I have to say for a freshman TLC show it has certainly brought the drama to Twitter and we’re only two episodes in! Anyone who has followed the evolution of the show knows that this ride hasn’t been easy from the beginning. During the filming of “Sin City Rules” the head honcho of Evolution Media Douglas Ross, had to fly to Las Vegas to meet with the cast members individually in an attempt to get them to take it down a notch or two. Ross founded the company that produced “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and “Real Housewives of Orange County.”
Fast forward, this week Evolution Media again had to intervene in the war of the women. TVFishbowl has learned that e-mails went out to the cast (individually and as a group), advising them that the “super negative tweets are making you unlikable characters,” “the Twitter battle isn’t helping the show” and “TLC is threatening to cancel the season” according to a source close to production.
The source also claims that Evolution Media is considering calling breach of contract on two cast members for their very heated Twitter war. According to the source the ladies contracts contain a clause stating that the network, TLC, Evolution Media and cast members will not portray cast members in a negative light. Well we know of at least one cast member who has portrayed her fellow cast members negatively, even going so far as to allegedly hire Tweeters to do her dirty work.
No one is safe from mudslinging with this group, look at the picture one cast member had created about another’s business. Dirt about family members that have appeared on the show has also started to come out. It’s no wonder Bravo didn’t pick up the show when it was titled Real Housewives of Las Vegas, what with the meth smoking, pole swinging, business stealing, pill popping, manufactured life, adultery claims being brandished about. Seriously “Sin City Rules” is more suited to VH1 than it is TLC!
What do you think will we get to see all eight episodes? If all eight episodes are aired, I don’t think we’ll see a season two of “Sin City Rules,” looking through TLC’s press site there isn’t anything more there than the original press release, no photos or videos, zip, zilch, nada.
