The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are coming back with a vengeance, and it appears from the previews for the upcoming season that Cynthia Bailey and husband Peter Thomas are once again facing financial hardships as their new bar is facing foreclosure. It's very reminiscent of the couple's Uptown restaurant that causes a major strain on their relationship.
This time around, Cynthia is trying to face the situation with a cool head and a plan of action. Speaking to Radar Online, Cynthia reveals, “When Peter told me about the issues we were having at Bar One, I immediately felt deja vu: ‘Here we go. We’re back to Uptown.' Financial issues are just huge in a new marriage. We were struggling even to get married and then once I finally feel like I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I got hit with the bomb.”
Cynthia continues, “That was devastating because I’m not comfortable when things are going crazy. I like to have a plan and I like the plan to work. I don’t want to do all those steps and then it just backfires and we’re back to square one.”
You know who needs to stop talking for a little bit? Wendy Williams, In fact, I feel kind of badly talking about her and giving her more attention, but her latest shenanigans need to be addressed. Domestic violence knows no boundaries, be it social, economic, or age, and we're all often guilty of blaming the victim…or doubting their recollection of events. I'm not saying that every woman who has claimed to be abused actually was, but on the flip side, do I want to be the one who makes that call? No. If someone's life is so sad that they feel the need to make false accusations, they don't need my judgment.
That said, just because someone is a person we like to snark on or seems generally horrible to be around, doesn't mean that they deserve to have someone put their hands on them. We all love to hate the often violent Evelyn Lozada, but her attitude doesn't warrant her ex-husband's behavior towards her any more than we excuse her behavior towards past co-stars. Sorry, that was a lot to get off my chest, but with the recent news of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer suffering abuse at the hand of her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos, Wendy Williams has felt the need to put in her two cents…and to her, Camille's story sounds "sketchy." Geez.
So, there's shocking, "oh my God, I never saw that coming" reality television gossip, and then there's this. Because, believe me, you saw this coming and will in no way be the least bit shocked. Former Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans' former boyfriend Kieffer Delp was arrested. Again. You may remember him as the homeless dude who got the innocent Janelle hooked on Ke$ha heroin…and it was all captured by MTV's cameras.
This news is especially entertaining for me because a dear friend of mine texted me last week to see if he was missing out on any Kieffer gossip. This friend practices law in Brunswick County and was appointed to one of Kieffer's cases a while ago. Every once in a while he checks in to see if I have heard how his "old pal" is doing. So, this one is for you, buddy (although you likely knew it before I did)!
Real Housewives of Atlanta'sNeNe Leakes may be super rich y'all (and boy does she like to tell us about it!), but that doesn't mean she's immune from the clutches of Uncle Sam! These housewives are so predictable, right? When they're up, they're selling cookbooks and doing spin-offs, but when their down, it's all about the tax liens!
Now, just because NeNe has been slapped with a pesky lien doesn't mean she isn't still rolling in the dough…but it's dough that got her into this mess in the first place–pizza dough, that is!
In today's shocking news, former spouses Jon and Kate Gosselin still aren't getting along. The one time laid back member of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 duo is decidedly more low key these days. Thankfully, Jon is no longer dating nannies, abusing Ed Hardy (that we know of), or hanging with Michael Lohan. As for Kate, she's basically the same, but tanner with a much more expensive lifestyle and sense of entitlement. It's a wonder these two didn't work…
While Jon and Kate struggle to get along, their eight children are the ones who suffer. Jon is quick to mention this to Oprah Winfrey. See how casually I mentioned that? Yes, Jon is going to be interviewed by the Big O for her series Where Are They Now?
Bravo viewers have watched Real Housewives of Miami'sLisa Hochstein struggle with infertility for the past two seasons, and she has revealed that she has suffered miscarriages and failed IVF attempts in her efforts to start a family. However, when plastic surgeon husband Lenny mentioned looking into a surrogate, Lisa was uneasy, telling him, “I can still try. It’s uncomfortable for me to think of my baby growing in some other woman’s tummy.”
Now, we are learning why. Apparently, Lisa and Lenny had looked into a surrogate in the past only to face more disappointment.
Forget about riding the Stevie J. bus–theLove & Hip Hop: Atlanta star may want to look into driving one! He's going to need the extra cash to pay the massive (and I mean MASSIVE!) amounts of child support that he allegedly owes.
I will hand it to Stevie, the man likes to go big or go home. This time, he's totally out done himself as his child support debt is described to be one of historical (yes, you read that correctly!) proportions. We've all seen the precious daughter Stevie shares with "maid" for drama co-star Mimi Faust, but he has four other children with additional women. Carol Bennett is a former girlfriend of Stevie's, and the mother of two of his children. You won't believe how much money he's said to owe her!
As the show starts, Deitrick is hanging out at the playground with his future mother-in-law and he shares the big news that he's bought a house. And not just any house–this casa has six bedrooms and seven baths (when can I move in?), but he promises not to shack up. Deitrick will wait until after the "I dos" before moving in Dominique and his daughter. Meanwhile, Ron is struggling with his sister Shaun's heroin addiction. He feels responsible for her fate due to his past drug problems, and he calls his family together in an attempt to save his sister. Ron knows he has the Lord on his side, but to get his sister out of the crack house, he's going to need the law as well.
Well, looky here! Clarence is biffles with P. Diddy's personal umbrella holder! He welcomes Farnsworth into his ginormous compound and compliments him on having as much swag as the bishop himself. Farnsworth and his wife have brought their new daughter to meet Clarence, and we learn that they are part of his congregation. Remind me why these men are dressed as twins? Clarence and Farnsworth talk about the hardships of fatherhood. It's not easy having to fly six hours first class to spend time with your family, and don't even get Clarence started on the people who are jealous of how successful his ministry has become. Thank God (no really) for security detail! Clarence reveals that his body guards have never had to deal with issues of this magnitude with the most A-list of celebrities, He seems very proud of this fact.
