The latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us some awkward sex talks and a slightly uncomfortable scene involving the always classy Phaedra and some pickles.
With the said, let’s get right to the recap! The episode begins with Kim Zolciak being yet again late to another event. This event in particular is Kandi’s web talk show titled Kandi Coated Nights! Following yet another scene with Kim berating her assistant Sweetie, she finally finds her way to Kandi’s studio, and the topic of conversation is Cheating! Something Kim knows an awful lot about despite trying to pretend her relationship with the still married Big Poppa has no cheating element to it.
“I only know what Papa tells me,” is Kim’s argument. Perhaps Kim should invest some time in using the google search engine as a quick search on Big Poppa will clearly let her know he is still married and living with his wife and kids.

In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kyle, the more outgoing and outspoken of the two sisters, says the show only worsened the tension between she and Kim.
“We’re very different and we clash sometimes,” Kyle told PEOPLE. “Being in front of the cameras brings out things that you don’t really expect.”
And when it comes to the status of their relationship now, Kyle adds that “it’s awkward,” noting that the drama on the show is all real. “There are no lines; there’s no script. It is what it is.”
Kim also shares a similar sentiment on her time on the show. “Things are said and done that you just can’t take back,” Kim said. And while reflecting back on her experience in filming the show, Kim reveals she and Kyle experienced fun times together but also the “worst conflict ever.” Kim adds, “I’ve learned a lot from this season.”
Kyle had the following to say in her latest Bravo blog –
“There were also some of you who felt that I am too hard on my sister or felt that I shouldn’t have discussed my issues with Kim with her daughter Brooke. I can see your point. Sometimes it feels as if my nieces are more like my little sisters. Also, after losing our parents, I am sometimes at a loss regarding who to turn to when my sisters and I have arguments. My being too strong with Kim is much more complex than I can explain in a blog. However, she knows I love her. Even if we fight, she knows I am ALWAYS looking out for her. Also, when I said that I promised my Mom I would take care of her, I should have explained that my sisters and I EACH said that we would look after EACH OTHER. That is what family is all about.”

It seems Kim Kardashiancontinues to follow in the footsteps of her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, then the reality show, then the whole being insanely famous for nothing, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by trying to sing.
According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been hitting the studio with top notch writer/producer/performer The-Dream. And yes, this is the same Dream that is responsible for major hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”
The important question now is can Kimmy sing? A “source” tells TMZ that “Kim’s got a really good voice.”
Above is a photo of Kim, 30, who according to her, hasn’t had any work done on her face other than botox. Kim attended Heidi Klum’s 2010 Halloween party as Little Red Riding Hood.

In other Atlanta news, Phaedra Parks did a new interview with Zap2It during which she discussed joining the show and once again defended her decision to marry her husband Apollo Nida. Excerpts below –
Phaedra On Joining The Show – “At the time, I really didn’t know, because it wasn’t always well-spoken of in Atlanta to be very honest with you,” said Phaedra. “I’ve done reality TV a few times, so I’m pretty familiar with it. At the end of the day I understand that what makes for good TV are sensational events and drama and cattiness and some of this other foolishness sometimes. And that’s just part of the madness of TV, and particularly reality TV.”
On Her Husband Apollo – “At the end of the day, you have to realize I married him,” Phaedra said. “He doesn’t have to sleep with anyone except for me. No one has to be bothered with him except for me. So, why is it anyone else’s concern?”
A preview of tonight’s episode is below –

Bethenny, who is busy filming the 2nd season of her own show Bethenny’s Getting Married then added, “It’s so lavish and big. I’m not sure if it’s totally relatable with all that money… I didn’t know people even had that much money!”

And finally, in case you’ve ever wondered why some of the Bravo housewives subject themselves to the pitfalls and humiliation of putting their lives on reality television, you know, other than the fact that most of them are famewhores, the SmokingGun website is about to give you 15,000 reasons.
According to the site, $15,000 is the amount Jill Zarin earned for a speaking appearance. Just last month, the University of South Florida paid the Real Housewives of NYC star 15gs to address some of their college students and sign copies of her books, which according to all reports, has been a total flop.
In addition to the $15,000 fee, Jill also received accommodations in a hotel suite, a $100 per diem, and had her airfare paid for. So folks, the next time you read about a Bravo housewife threatening to leave the show, feel free to roll your eyes, knowing that none of these women will give up on their Bravo ticket to money and fame.

A new report by Life & Style magazine is now blowing the lid off just how much MTV is paying its Teen Mom stars.
The reality show, which has now become a mega hit for the network, averaged millions of viewers per episode for it’s second season. A series insider tells Life & Style magazine exclusively that the “stars earn $60,000 to $65,000 per season.” Not too shabby for some teens who’s claim to fame was getting knocked up, though their Jersey Shore counterparts did earn over $300,000 each for their upcoming 3rd season.
And while the Teen Mom stars are earning way more than most of their peers, it seems Amber Portwood and on and off again boyfriendGary Shirley are not good savers. Gary’s best friend, Jordan Sanchez, tells Life & Style that “Gary says he’s broke.” Adding that “the money is the only reason he’s willing to do the show. You can’t walk away from money like that.”
As we have reported, MTV has already began filming the third season of the hit show.
