Being an original cast member of a Real Housewives franchise means constantly having to reinvent yourself. Bethenny Frankel took her preference for party drinks and turned it into a profitable personal brand, Vicki Gunvalson changed partners (and maybe faces?), and NeNe Leakes made a foray into acting. Now, she is eying a spot on daytime TV. Read more…
Phaedra Parks is usually classing up Bravo’s The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but tomorrow night she’s gracing Best Week Ever with her presence. Ms. Parks dropped in on Michael Che‘s “Two Minute Talk Show” to talk about her new book, Secrets Of The Southern Belle. Will she be able to teach us all a lesson? Are we all doomed to be slobs forever? Check out the clip above and be sure to tune in for an all new episode of Best Week Ever tomorrow, Friday, November 22 at 10/9C!
Jason Collins’ ex-fiancee speaks on his homosexuality, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West opt not to receive baby gifts, and Gwyneth Paltrow tries on the Iron Main suit.
It looks like we weren’t the only ones shocked to learn that reality star Porsha Williams and former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart were calling it quits! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is saying she was “blindsided” by the news of her husband filing for divorce, and that she read of the news on a website!
When we think about whether NeNe Leakes should leave Real Housewives of Atlanta now that she’s on The New Normal, we feel like a parent whose kid wants to go to college 3,000 miles away. On one hand, NeNe has already made “The Leap” that most reality stars dream of making. She’s costarring on Ryan Murphy’s new show, guests on Glee from time to time and, even more importantly, is generally perceived to be vivacious and fun rather than…you know…completely deranged like some other Housewives that come to mind. At this point, NeNe’s career is in no need another glass of white wine to the face. On the other hand…what about us? The woman was made for reality TV! What about our unscripted NeNe needs?
Luckily for us, we won’t have to give up a NeNe-packed RHOA just yet. “I haven’t decided, but I will tell you this: I’m very loyal to Bravo, and I will continue to do both shows for as long as my schedule allows it,” Leakes revealed on Big Morning Buzz Live this morning, when discussing whether this season of Housewives is her last. “When you are a good person, good things happen for you,” she laughed. Well, we’re good people…so good things will happen to us….ERGO NeNe Leakes will stay on RHOA until the sun burns out! Hurray! Oh, or she could get her own daytime talk show. We’d be more than okay with that too.
Remember when Demi Moore shocked the world by posing pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair? Yeah, well, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak’s appearance on the cover of this week’s Life & Style is pretty much nothing like that.
For starters, Demi Moore’s iconic photograph pushed the boundaries of how we, as a society, viewed female stars of stage and screen. While movie stars of the feminine persuasion used to literally go into hiding when they got pregnant, Demi and photographer Annie Leibovitz’s decision to put Moore’s swollen belly on the cover—hi there, Rumer!—made a bold statement not only about the beauty of the female form, but also about the traditional ways in which the bodies of female celebrities were objectified. Kim Zolciak, on the other hand, decided to don an ill-fitting pink bra and a pair of see-through lace panties as a fairly transparent way to land herself on the cover of Life & Style (not to mention a Hall of Fame spot in the pregnancy wing of Awkward Family Photos). This makes her RHoA castmate Phaedra Parks’s decision to deep throat a pickle while pregnant look positively resplendent in comparison!
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss has revealed that she is “devastated” following the brutal death of her fiance A.J. Jewell this weekend. The singer-songwriter and father of 6 died Friday night after suffering injuries sustained during a massive brawl outside of an Atlanta strip club. According to the Huffington Post, Fredrick Richardson has been arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter.
Immediately following the incident, Burruss tweeted, “im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone,” and later said, “I am devastated by the loss of A.J.. His death comes on the heels of the death of my beloved Uncle Ralph and with both of them gone, my heart is heavy with grief.”
We’re not in the business of spreading rumors, but we’ve heard through the grapevine that Usher‘s baby mama, Tameka Foster, may be joining the second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nothing has been confirmed, but Scandalist hopes that some beefing between Tameka and Nene (from season one) is on our reality show horizon. [Photo: Getty Images]
