If you had told me when Real Housewives of Atlanta started that NeNe Leakes would be the breakout star, I would totally have agreed with you. However, if you had told me she would segue her Bravo gig into a legitimate acting career, I would have pointed you in the direction of the nearest loony bin. Clearly, I was wrong.
NeNe is now commuting between Atlanta and Los Angeles where she is filming the NBC sitcom The New Normal. She's no longer screaming in Kim Zolciak's face. Instead she's trading jokes with The Ellen Barkin. So, it begs the question…will NeNe be a reality star or an actress? NeNe seems conflicted herself.
Project Runway All Stars is returning to Lifetime with some fan favorites…and not so favorites! There will be cat suits and cat fights, mark my words. Thirteen past designers will be back to compete for the reward that eluded them their first go-round. Each of the nine past seasons are represented except for season 4, but the majority of players are from the more recent seasons.
Iconic fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi returns to judge alongside the gorgeous Georgina Chapman who is the co-founder of Marchesa. Supermodel Carolyn Murphy (who is as intelligent as she is beautiful–her bio? Whoa!) will take over this season's hosting duties. Joanna Coles, former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire/just named editor-in-chief of Cosmo, resumes her role as all-star mentor. I like Joanna, but I sure do miss Tim Gunn when he's gone!

Another day, another saga in the Adrienne Maloof/Paul Nassif divorce. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple as been dragging each other through the mud since their separation was made public. After allegations of verbal and physical abuse against each other, Adrienne accused Paul of being violent towards their children. An emergency hearing was held, and Adrienne was awarded temporary sole custody of the pair's sons.
This week, the Department of Children and Family Services found that the claims of abuse against the children were unfounded, and Paul went to court to regain visitation with his three boys. Yesterday, Paul was awarded supervised visitation of his children. Um…didn't he just get cleared? Sounds like there could be more to the story and the flying accusations!
I already love the family from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but if I hadn't already, I would after learning more about them. They may act like a backwoods sideshow a lot of the time, but the truth is that June and her daughters are much more grounded than many of us would be if we got a taste of reality fame.
After catching America's eye as a then five-year-old Alana downed go-go juice on Toddlers and Tiaras, the family has garnered both fame and criticism for their lack of manners and poor eating habits (sketti, anyone?), as well as their unconventional family outings. In their show's first episode, fifteen-year-old Jessica "Chubs" went bobbing for raw pig's feet, and later in the season the family went dumpster diving while talking about their penchant for eating road kill. It's easy to see how some people could turn up their noses at this family, if it weren't for one small fact.
This family totally loves one another. There is very little drama, and no question about how much mama June loves her four daughters. If you can understand Sugar Bear with his mouth full of dip, you would know he feels the exact same. While their show has been green lighted for a second season, the group still continues to live their regular lives in the tiny county of McIntyre, Georgia. June is doing everything she can to make sure that fame affecting her family is not an option.
You know you've made it big as a housewife when you write a book, or rather if you have a ghost writer write a book for you! Well, it appears that Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is making it big. The sharp-tongued, Twitter loving, scorned wife is writing a book where she will share her wealth of knowledge and advice on relationships (what not to do, I'd assume).
Brandi's guide to dating will help readers score the person of their dreams as long as they do as she says and not as she does. The best part of Brandi's tome? She is letting her fans pick the title, and I must say, they are pretty hilarious!

Camille Grammer's ex-husband Kelsey has been making the media rounds lately, and he likes to take any opportunity to take to undercut his ex in the press. Whether he's sharing that he got her on RHOBH as a marriage parting gift or snarking that the pair hadn't had sex in over a decade, it's TMI at its finest.
Likewise, no matter where you turn, Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif are battling over custody and abuse allegations in the tabloids. It's enough to make your head spin!
Big Ang is still bigger than life! With her new book, her new store, and the third season of Mob Wives, she is busier than ever, and she can't wait to share all things Ang with the world. Ang recently spoke with VH1 where she shared that Mob Wives has just wrapped. It promises to be the most dramatic season ever…and I don't doubt it! Ang also can't confirm a second season of her spin-off, but she is hopeful we'll be seeing more Big Ang on the network in the future.
Andrew Coleman's web of lies unraveled last night on Flipping Out, and I must say it was much more dramatic than I anticipated. You know, I thought Andrew was funny the first couple episodes, but his attitude is horrendous. I do think, however, that it was the best show of the season so far!
Andrew seems a little sullen after his tongue lashing from Jeff Lewis, but he is willing to do Jeff's grunt work. Jeff insists he isn't trying to punish Andrew….he just want him to prove that he really wants to the job by being willing to do anything…even if it's cleaning the outside range.
Jenni Pulos and Jeff are going to meet with Lisa. At Lisa's office the pair trade off wearing Kangoo boots and racing down the hall, crashing face first into walls. They get scolded by en EXTRA! employee like two children. It's hilarious. Jeff has countertop samples for Lisa, but all she sees are rising dollar signs. He had better keep this budget in check!
