Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta…There is so much going on that I don’t know where to start!  If you had told me several seasons ago that Kim wouldn’t be with Big Poppa, Phaedra would be accused of being a criminal kingpin, and NeNe would be a legitimate actress on a television show, I would have died laughing.  Looks like the joke is on me!

As you recall, Phaedra Park’s former friend Angela Stanton has promoted an e-book in collaboration with Vibe.  Lies of a Real Housewife:  Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil makes some pretty strong accusations regarding Phaedra being the mastermind behind a crime spree that landed both Angela and Apollo Nida in jail.  Vibe.com shared a series of video interviews with Angela in conjunction with her book release.  In one of the videos, she states that Apollo’s “brother” lied about the extent of Angela’s involvement, in an effort to take the heat off Phaedra.

Now Vibe is issuing a “clarification“–or what regular folks would call an “Oops!”–on Angela use of the term “brother.”  The site back pedals, “In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband]. It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s ‘street brother’ in her book. The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.”  I wonder how many other Oops clarifications the site will have to make in connection with this book.  Tamara Tattles notes that the book, which was holding the 67th spot on Amazon upon its release, has now dropped to the 5,289th position.

NeNe Leakes seems to have a new biffle in the form of Glee creator Ryan Murphy.  The Neenster has been honing her acting skills on the hit series, and it was just announced that she will be starring in Murphy’s latest pilot, The New Normal.  The show centers around a gay couple and their surrogate, and NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky.  It appears that the RHOA reality star may have found the perfect way to channel her dramatic personality!

NeNe recently tweeted a picture of her famous bestie, stating, “THE MAN that is changing my life 1 script @ a time Ryan Murphy.”

Adding another photo of her and Ryan for her followers, NeNe tweeted, “I gotta get that Emmy baby & this man is helping me make sure that happens.”  Both of those photos are below.

NeNe’s former best friend/current nemesis Kim Zolciak also took to the twitterverse to defend herself when a follower called out her behavior towards former assistant Sweetie Hughes.  After someone tweeted “RT @snooki I hate when people are mean to their assistants. Your not cool. responded, @throughmyeyes__ how about my former assistant/friend @sweetieHughes is one of my dearest closest friends soooo stfu!”

Mere minutes later, Kim gave quite a shout out to her friend, tweeting, “First vacation in a loooong time w/ out @sweetieHughes we already miss u!!! If u wanna come I got u ;)” A hilarious picture of Kim’s wigs on said vacation is also below!

JoAnn Ward and her son Steve are back with a new season of Tough Love, and this time they are taking their dating advice to New Orleans! VH1 has announced that Tough Love: New Orleans will be premiering Sunday, April 15, at 9PM ET.

The show features JoAnn and Steve as they work their matchmaking magic on a new batch of singles who have issues finding their Mr. Right. This season promises a man hater, a man eater, a lover of deadbeats, and a very awkward virgin! Wouldn’t it be hilarious if they were all the same person?

It appears that the mother-son dream team will have some pretty difficult cases this time around, and I, for one, can’t wait to see how they handle this bunch. Meet the ladies in desperate need of tough love below!

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE LADIES OF THIS SEASON’S TOUGH LOVE? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE HARDEST WOMAN TO DEAL WITH FOR STEVE AND JOANN?

And then there were eight. We’re jumping in to covering American Idol, which is awesome for me because 1) I love it; and 2) but for recapping the elimination show, I’d likely be reminded of my Pauly D and Vinny Thursday night withdrawals. The show begins as it should…Randy Jackson is smooth, dawg, Steven Tyler is swathed in an excessive amount of man scarves, and JLo is sporting an outfit I would have killed for back when I was in middle school – and mind you, that was in the late 80′s.

The show opens with the always suave and debonairly coiffed Ryan Seacrest promoting Aerosmith’s upcoming tour. The remaining nine singers are shown the celebrity tweets, which tout their favorite idols of the season. Carrie Underwood, Lifehouse, and Mariah Carey all show some love for those who chose their songs. Poor DeAndre Brackensick didn’t receive any such tweets after his performance of Eric Benet’s “Sometimes I Cry” (sidebar…I’m so excited to be recapping the AI because all season I’ve wanted to hear from y’all how much he reminds you of former contestant Jason Castro). Instead, DeAndre gets a personal visit from Eric Benet. He’s moved to tears, Ryan is excited to have Eric grace the stage, and somewhere Halle Berry is flaunting her engagement ring at her television screen while Olivier Martinez chides his future bride about being married to such a d-bag. Did I digress too much?

Knowing that last night’s episode of Survivor was Colton-free, did you feel better about tuning in to watch?

The now merged tribe celebrates with champagne and cheese back at the beach. Everyone seems to be happy that it’s every player for themselves. Alicia is appalled to think that Christina is still in the game. Let the backstabbing begin! The following morning, Jonas is impressing the women with his culinary skills. Model Jay denies Tarzan some coffee, with Jay informing him that the coffee is only for the people who won it in the last challenge.

What? Tarzan can’t believe his former dude teammate isn’t reverting back to the guys versus the girls alliances. He approaches Mike about getting the gang back together, as the men and women are equal in numbers. Tarzan promises a female defector in the form of Alicia to create a stronger voting pool. Sure, yeah, sounds good, says Mike, who trusts Tarzan about as far as he can throw him. Interesting…it seems the most recent winners don’t want to play the way of the middle school dance with boys on one side and girls on the other.

Last night’s premiere of 16 & Pregnant’s fourth season gave viewers double the baby mama drama with two new episodes. The first episode introduces us to cheerleader Mackenzie Douthit and her bull riding beau Josh McKee from Oklahoma.

Mackenzie loves going to the rodeo with her friends to watch her boyfriend compete, only this time she’s got an extra person with her…in her belly. She’s a rising junior in high school, and Josh has graduated. Mackenzie doesn’t want to get too far behind with her cheerleading goals, so she still attends practices (to watch), and she plans to jump right back in to the tumbling and pom poms as soon as possible. Josh appears to be very supportive, and the couple seems to have fun together.

Mackenzie puts a lot of pressure on Josh to plan for their future, and her family doesn’t think that she realizes what a change this will be in her life. After her sisters plead with her not to name the poor child “Cowbell,” her mother inquires as to why she wasn’t more careful. Duh! As a cheerleader, she didn’t want to take the Pill and risk getting fat. Um…I don’t want to point out the obvious, but…

Y’all had to know Colton Cumbie of Survivor wasn’t going anywhere – heck, he may be getting more attention now that he’s off the show, than when he was the resident villain on the beach!

Colton has been speaking out about his time on the show, leaving before his time, and whether he has been fairly perceived by the viewing audience. Here’s a quick hint…Colton doesn’t seem to have any issue with how he was portrayed on the show. Finally, a reality star (I’ll use that term loosely) who isn’t blaming editing – that’s huge, especially for someone so hated!

He recently spoke with Jarett Wieselman with theinsider.com. Excerpts from that interview are below -

Have you been surprised by the haters?
Oh, not at all. Not at all. Once the show started airing, I knew. Coming out of it, my hope is that people would appreciate my game play. Let’s be honest, a little 20-year-old gay boy convincing a group of men to do what he wanted, without ever lifting a finger? They’ve never had anyone like me. It would be one thing if I helped out at camp, but I did nothing. I literally was their queen.

It seems like the gay community is the most incensed about your behavior — what do your gay friends think?
Oh, here we go – I’m about to get slayed for this. But to be honest, I don’t know many gay people. I really don’t. I have a boyfriend but he’s the straightest gay person you’ll ever meet – he hunts and fishes. But he’s proud of me. He thinks I did well. I just think the gays hate me because I’m a republican. Once that came out, they looked for any reason to hate me. To truly appreciate what I bring to the game, you have to like my sense of humor – I compare it to Chelsea Handler. I think people are just too sensitive.

Do you think the show presented a fair representation of who you are?
I’m not going to blame the edit. I was in control of my own actions. I did what you saw. I wish they focused more on my strategic gameplay than my comments, but then again, I’m glad I saw that because it helped me to grow as a person. Things were taken out of context, but that was me. I didn’t zero in on one person. I didn’t just zero in on Bill [Posely]. My hate knew no bounds [laughs].

Let’s talk about that Tribal Council where Bill went home — you took a lot of flack for your comments regarding race. Take me back to that night, what happened?
I think things were misinterpreted but I also think things were left out. Obviously I know more African American people than my housekeeper, but that’s what they chose to showcase. I don’t know how to say it without seeming ignorant, but I was being honest in a way. We are super close to my housekeeper. She is like family. I was trying to defend myself but it came across badly.

Do you see yourself as a “Survivor Villain?”
If we’re speaking strictly on gameplay, I’m totally a villain. I made it clear that you’re with me or you’re against me. If you don’t think I was running the show, then you weren’t watching [laughs]. I take pride in my villain title because it’s not something that’s easily earned. There are a lot of wannabes.

Many would argue you saved the most selfish move for last. Why did you keep The Immunity Idol?
I wouldn’t have been a villain if I didn’t do that. The irony is that I wanted to give the Idol away. I wanted to give it to Jay, but we were separated so I couldn’t get it to him. I considered giving it to Christina for a millisecond, but she wouldn’t have known to do with it. I didn’t want to screw up Jay’s game by giving the Immunity Idol to someone on Manono.

As a fan of the game, how does it feel to have been medically removed and not voted out, or won?
It feels absolutely horrible. I don’t have closure. Had they blindsided me or voted me out, I would have been able to sit back and be OK with it. But they didn’t get me. I got myself, basically. My body turned against me. I was my own worst enemy. It’s frustrating. I lie in bed at night and wonder what got me sick. Bad crab? Evil coconut?

Do you know what it was?
They think it was a food born or water born [virus] – you know, I honestly wonder if I got taken out Caesar-style. Obviously you know I did nothing, so it would have been so easy for someone to poison my food [laughs].

Okay kids, so what did we learn? Colton seems pretty proud of being the most purposefully lazy person ever to grace Jeff Probst’s presence, he really loves his housekeeper, and the gay community likely hates him for being a Republican. I am not sure what to say…but at least he’s honest? The reunion is going to be interesting, to say the least!

A new episode airs tonight at 8PM ET on CBS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF COLTON’S INTERVIEW? IS HE SHELTERED OR JUST A HORRIBLE SNOB? BOTH? DO YOU THINK COLTON COULD HAVE WON HAD HE NOT GOTTEN SICK?


It’s like, if they aren’t causing drama, they would shrivel up and disappear (and would that really be so bad?)…that’s right, I am referring to the ladies of Basketball Wives.

Last night’s episode started where last week’s left off, as Shaunie has tried to separate a steaming Evelyn and a holier than thou Jenn. Evelyn has grand plans to go wait around the corner, pretending that she left, and jump Jenn when she leaves the restaurant. Someone is taking a page right out of the Love & Hip Hop playbook, isn’t she? Oh, Kenya. Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. She intervenes in hopes a story about her best friend from fifth grade will calm Evelyn, much to Tami’s chagrin. Tami is sure that Evelyn doesn’t want to hear Kenya’s nonsense. While Kenya agrees, she keeps talking anyway. Tami found the whole party very entertaining, even if it wasn’t what Shaunie had hoped.

Oh Mob Wives, you never disappoint…completely. Last night we started seeing the breakdown of Renee and Junior, and not much of anything else.

Carla is trying to teach Drita how to flirt that doesn’t involve her comparing her biceps to those of potential suitors. They go dancing in the city, but Drita is quick to warn any men that approach her that she likes to get violent. Save that for the fourth date, Drita. At least Drita realizes, the guy she hopes to meet isn’t one of the many meat-heads who are watching her dance on the banquette. She is ready to leave after one of her dance partners cops to knowing Drita’s soon-to-be-ex Lee.

Big Ang is dining with Karen and Ramona. All of their crime families go way back, and Karen likes walking down memory lane. Ang has changed her hair. I’m on the fence about it. Big Ang tells the girls about her arrest, which occurred thanks to her friend wearing a wire. I am sheltered. I think to myself that I would be more concerned about being arrested than blaming the people who got leniency for putting me in that situation (however, I’d be mad at them too!). Own up to your mistakes, people! Big Ang kind of does…
