    deelishis is pregnant?? damn shes gunna be on maury soon tryin to find who the daddy is... lol. and how did the I Love New York reunion hav disappointing ratings?? it had 5 million. and the only reason Charm School had .1 more ratings is cause alot of the viewers watching the reunion got carried into Charm School. plus the people that tuned in to actually watch Charm School.
