Episode 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us spa confrontations, Kim singing, and Nene snagging a huge/astronomical celebrity interview but the best part of Sunday night might have just beenPhaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida’s appearance on WWHL, during which Apollo claimed he was 4 years younger than Phaedra. In this recap, I set the record straight on that while touching on whether or not Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar is broke and in foreclosure. Will also briefly touch which Bravo housewives I strongly dislike. They are now 5 by the way. Would also like to know which housewives you all despise dislike the most. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!
The episode begins with Kandi Burruss(who’s album Kandi Koatedis in stores now – a nice album) rehearsing for her upcoming promo tour, which is a week away. The best part of this rehearsal is when Kim shows up to show Kandi what her performance will look like. Once again, Kim whines, complains before showing off her lazy performance routine to go along with the bad singing. Here’s a tip for Kandi – have her lip sync. Kandi is not too pleased with Kim’s laziness but doesn’t have time to dedicate to Kim as she also has to focus on her own performances. Kandi wants Kim “to pull it together.”

Though Bravo wanted Bethenny, the clear fan favorite, to return for the show’s fourth season (currently being filmed), Bethenny decided she no longer wanted to do the show, instead opting to make guest appearances here and there a la Lisa Wu Hartwell on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
According to a new report by Popeater, Bravo is now worried about what effect Bethenny’s absence will have on the show’s new season. “Bethenny is the biggest star the franchise has ever produced,” a Bravo insider reveals. “She not only connected with the most fans, but she also allowed the audience to laugh at how ridiculous the other ladies are. Without Bethenny making fun of the cast, the show just won’t be as much fun.”
Popeater adds that a main concern for Bravo is who will now call outKelly Bensimon on her erratic/crazy/entertaining behavior. “Without Bethenny on the show, Kelly’s strange behavior is no longer funny, it’s just annoying,” adds the source.
Apparently Bravo became increasingly concerned after catching a glimpse of how the new season is going. Based on what they saw, they decided to ask Bethenny to return for more than the six appearances she is contractually obligated to make.
Bethenny, who is now gearing up for the second season of her Bravo spin off show, however doesn’t want to return for more appearances as she is ready to phase the NYC Housewives completely out of her life. Bethenny reportedly feels “physically sick” just thinking about having to return to the show, something she feels is a “toxic environment.”
A friend of Bethenny tells Popeater, “In her heart she wishes she could just move on.” The friend adds, “To tell the truth, she doesn’t even want to watch the new season let alone be forced to be part of it.” Ouch.

Despite having spent the past few months dating the NFL and NBA leagues, it seems Kim Kardashian would rather remain single.
During a recent appearance on the Rachael Ray Show, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star vowed to remain single — through 2011. “I want to try to be single my whole year of being 30,” said Kimmy. “I’ve never just dated and done whatever I wanted.”
In fact, Kim and Kris, 25, stepped out for the first time a week and a half ago as the two attended a party in NYC. And though they tried to avoid being photographed together, the couple was eventually snapped while entering Kim’s hotel in the wee hours of a Saturday morning. That photo of Kim and Kris is below.
“I’ve made a promise to myself and I’m really trying hard to stick to it, but I’m such a hopeless romantic that it’s hard,” Kim explains. “I don’t think that’s going to last, because that’s just how I am. But the fact that I’m trying is a big step for me!”
In other Kardashian news, the sisters were the subject of a highlarious Saturday Night Live skit this Saturday. In the skit, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe were mocked as they whined their way through a Christmas message.
“We even went to visit Santa,” Kourtney whines. “I sat on his lap and told him what I wanted.” Adds “Kim”: “I did the same thing with Reggie Bush! I got a Rolex.” Kim’s sex tape with Ray J was also mocked. The skit is below -

Los Angeles native Jud Birza aka Fabiobecame the $1 million winner of Survivor:Nicaragua after outlasting, outwitting and outplaying his fellow competitors following 39 days in the rain forest.
The 21-year-old college student and model beat out musician Chase Rice, 24 and real-estate broker Matthew “Sash” Lenahan, 30, to become the youngest Survivor contestant ever to win the game.
Fabio won by a 5-4 vote, beating out Chase. And in what can only be described as the Russell Hantzeffect, villain Sash received zero votes.
Fabio, who won the last three immunity challenges, stated numerous times that he is not as dumb as others thought he was. Dog trainer Jane Bright, 56, was declared the fan favorite, winning the $100,000 Sprint Fan Favorite award. NaOnka Mixon, who host Jeff Probst called “a great villain” admitted that she “acted a fool” on the show but ultimately defended all her actions.
And thanks to NaOnka and Purple Kelly aka the Quitters, Jeff announced last night that starting with the new season, quitters will now have some repercussions, such as not being allowed on the jury. The decision will however be in the hands of the show’s producers.
The next big announcement was that the new season will have a new twist called Redemption Island. According to Jeff, when a contestant is voted out, they will go to Redemption Island and stay there alone, before being ultimately joined by the next person voted out. The two will then compete in a duel and the winner will remain on Redemption Island. After a certain period, the last person left standing on Redemption Island will get to return to the game.
We also got an update of Boston Rob and Amber. The two just delivered their second daughter Carina Rose on December 10th.
My Thoughts – I thought Fabio made an excellent move in deciding to vote out Holly. He’s definitely not as dumb as he appears. Holly would have likely won had she made the finals and quite frankly, I believe she deserved to win. She is the only member of the older tribe left in the game, the only woman left standing and she made some great moves in the game. She is the one who orchestrated the elimination of Brenda — a major competitor. Had it not been for Holly, Brenda would have likely been in the final 3 with Sash.
Personally, I was rooting for Fabio the most and I’m glad he won. I did not think Chase deserved to win at all and believed his game play was about as impressive as Kelly Purple’s. He just seemed to go with the flow, doing what others told him to do. I’m not surprised Sash didn’t get a vote. I’m guessing he failed to watch Russell Hantz’s performance on the last season. Part of Survivor is the social game and pissing everyone off and backstabbing everyone is never a good idea. Sash was a bad player in my opinion because he lied when he didn’t need to, thus making himself more enemies than he needed to.

In other Atlanta news, BlackVoices is reporting that professional mistressKim Zolciak is now planning on writing a book. And no, it’s not an instructional on how to be the best gold digger you can be, but rather a book about relationships. Yes, you read that right.
BV reports that Kim, 32, recently signed a deal with Farrah Gray Publishing, considered one of the largest African-American owned book publishing companies in the country. BV adds that Kim’s book will be about relationships and her advice on love and happiness. No words.

“If somebody’s husband is cheating on them, she would know it.” – Camille Grammer#FamousLastWords.
On an awesome scale of 1 – 10, I would say last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswas about a 9. On an insanity scale, maybe a 20. But after watching the ‘Dinner From Hell‘ episode, I’m thoroughly convinced that Camille Grammer is an evil genius. I mean, how else can we explain her ability to find someone more obnoxious, more delusional and more despicable than she is? Sitting next to the medium nut job aka Allison Dubois almost made her seem human and not like the monster she is. Something tells me Bravo is calling up Allison as I write this, trying to sign her up for the next season of the Real Housewives of NYC.
With that said, let’s get right to the recap! The episode begins with a cutesy useless scene of Lisa and her hubby going for a drive. Moving right along to Camille and Taylor having lunch. Camille reveals she hasn’t hung out with most of her costars since the NYC drama and tells Taylor she is planning a dinner get together for all the ladies. Camille reveals she’s “cautiously optimistic” about the dinner, you know, because she’s an innocent little victim and has zero parts in any of the drama that has taken place.

While is it now common knowledge that Cat had a steamy make out session with Prince Harry while she was still living in the UK, and we know of this because Cat sold the story to a UK tabloid, RadarOnline is now revealing the juicy details of Cat’s tryst with the Prince. The source of the story is Cat’s former nanny who also accuses Cat of being an absentee mom to her daughters and making racial slurs.
The nanny Monica Herrero states that the 2006 make out session between Cat, 39, and Prince Harry, 26, was way more than just a kiss, as she claims the two actually enjoyed a series of steamy rendezvous. Monica says she babysat Cat’s two daughters while she romped around with the the Prince who is 13 years her junior.
“Although she was my boss, when she was really happy she would share things with me, like what happened with Prince Harry,” Monica tells Radar in an exclusive interview. “She would show me messages that he sent her, and she said that he wanted to take her hand and travel around the world.”
Monica reveals she was 20-years-old when she acted as a nanny for Cat and her two daughters, Ruby and Jade, in 2007, while they lived in the UK. “While I was living with Catherine a car with a chauffeur came for her twice,” said Monica. “Her daughters would tell me, ‘This is the car that Prince Harry sends for mummy.'”
Monica also reveals that though Catherine was divorced and had a boyfriend at the time, she would constantly flirt and make out with other men. “Catherine told me that one time that she kissed Prince Harry in a bathroom,” Monica said. “She told me she met him because she was doing interior design for him, even though I never saw her doing any work.”
And in a separate interview with RadarOnline, Monica reveals that Cat was an absent mother who made racial slurs. “I worked seven days a week because Cathy slept in the mornings and went out partying in the nights,” Monica states. “She had a very disorganized life, like a teenager. I felt like a mum and that Cathy was my daughter.”
According to Monica, Cat was more concerned about traveling the world and was very cold to her daughters. “Sometimes the girls wouldn’t see their mother for a whole week and they live in the same house!” Monica said.
And finally, Monica claims she witnessed Cat make some racial slurs. “While we were shopping she often spoke about the big a**es of black people and spoke bad about the black and Asian people,” said Monica.
Catherine is however denying Monica’s claims, stating her tryst with Prince Harry was only for a night of making out (the same thing she told the UK tabloid). As for the other serious allegations, Cat stated – “The recent allegations by an old au pair are all lies. I fired Monica Herrero because she was totally untrustworthy and irresponsible. She completely trashed our house when the girls and I were away for the weekend and ran up a $800 phone bill!”

While her daughter was being made a ward of the state and charges were being pressed against her for striking her ex-fiance, it seems Teen Momstar Amber Portwood was busy getting some permanent body art.
Above is a picture of Amber’s giant tattoo of her 2-year-old daughter Leah on her belly. According to Star magazine, Amber got the tattoo on November 14 and it reportedly took a total of 9 hours.
A source close to the 20-year-old reality star tells RadarOnline that “she got the tattoo as a way to show her commitment to Leah.” Radar adds that so far it’s her first and only tattoo.
Amber is arguably the break out “star” of the MTV reality show as she continues to remain in the press for all the wrong reasons. First it was for her violent attacks on her daughter’s father Gary Shirley (she has since been charged with domestic violence) and then recently, two media outlets reported she was pregnant again. Something Amber has now denied.
Radar adds that Amber’s new boyfriend Clinton Yunkeralso has two children of his own to go with his lengthy criminal record. A bigger photo of Amber’s tattoo is below.
