But first, condolences to Josh Flagg for the loss of his grandmother, Edith Flagg. I enjoyed watching their scenes together. They really seemed to like each other’s company and you could feel the love between them. She was a spitfire and will be missed. Now back to the show…
Josh Altman has returned still engaged to Heather Bilyeu. As much as Josh was opposed to the idea last season, she is now working for The Altman Brothers but from the ‘home’ office in order to keep a separation of family (Heather) and business (Matt). He had no choice but to bring her into the fold. Money is money, right? I’m no therapist, but it doesn’t take one to see the writing on the wall.
We have two new blind items this week, both from Crazy Days & Nights. Take a look and give us your best guesses. If you missed teh recently revealed blind item that was rumored to be about Joanna Krupa, check it out.
Blind #1: This Real Housewife celebrated her soon to be divorce by getting some new breasts which is something her cheating husband said he never wanted her to do. Oh, look for the divorce announcement to come with the news that all the property is divided.
Update 2: We’re stalled out at $1081 right now, but slow and steady wins the race, right?
Update: We’re standing still around $861 right now! It’s a far cry from $40,000, but when you consider that my hope was to raise at least $5, we’re doing great!! :) We appreciate that you guys are still sharing it on Twitter and Facebook! Every little bit will help the foundation!
Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta may remember during this season’s reunion show (part 3), there was a $20,000 charity challenge issued. One star promised to donate $20,000 to the charity of the other star’s choice, so long as the other star sent her check first. The charity chosen on the reunion show was the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. It sounded like a grand gesture that would put their previous fundraiser event ‘misunderstanding’ to rest once and for all.
Fast forward to months later when the reunion aired and, after media outlets inquired with DPSF, the organization confirmed that neither star had yet sent their promised $20,000 check to the worthy cause. The stars tried to get out on a technicality, claiming they’d send their donation check only when the other mailed hers (and one even claimed to not remember it all). As a fan of the show and of genuine charitable giving, this didn’t sit well and it has bothered us ever since. We reached out to DPSF this week and they confirmed the status of the checks as still “not received.” So, we want to do something about it.
We start off with Sheree and Tameka at her house. Sheree is being very nice considering how Tameka has been treating her. Sheree brings up the jabs that Tameka has been throwing, and Tameka’s explanation for all of the jabs is that she says things before thinking because her brain moves so rapidly. Huh, say what. Okay, Bitter Einstein. So, let me get this straight. Tameka is basically saying, ‘I am correct in thinking those mean things about you. I probably shouldn’t say them, but you can’t fault me for that either because I only say them because my brain moves so much faster than everyone else’s, including yours.’ I think I got it, or maybe my brain doesn’t move that fast. *eye roll* Sheree offers to fix her up on a date. Tameka agrees as long as the guy’s pants aren’t sagging. Was that another jab? I’m trying to train my brain to keep up.
Caroline and her family – husband Albert, sons Albie and Chris, and daughter Lauren – will be featured on this new family series. Manzo’d with Children with follow the crew as they navigate Lauren’s upcoming wedding, the boys’ business dealings, dating disasters and more!
Atlanta Exes: Meet the New Ladies! This is the premiere episode of the spinoff of Hollywood Exes. This series introduces us to the exes of prominent men of Atlanta. So who are these newbies??? We have Monyetta Shaw, ex-fiancé to Ne-Yo, who is a singer, songwriter, and actor. Sheree Buchanan is the ex-wife of former pro-footballer Ray Buchanan. Torrei Hart is the ex-wife of Kevin Hart, comedienne and actor. Christina Johnson is the ex-wife of CeeLo Green, singer and coach on The Voice. And last but certainly not least,the former Mrs. Usher Raymond, Tameka Raymond. Usher is a very famous R&B singer. He has also tried his hand at acting, and coaching on the voice. He is also Justin Bieber’s mentor; I guess we can’t hold that against him. He has most recently called their marriage his “best mistake.”
We start at Tameka’s house that she once shared with Usher, and can I say that marrying well should be all the rage if it leads to houses like this. That house is the stuff of little girl and grown groupies’ dreams. Tameka gives us some background. She became Usher’s stylist in 2001. They married in 2007 after she divorced the husband she was cheating on. They went through a tumultuous divorce and a more recent custody battle which she lost. She has invited the women over for a packing party.
