Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are continuing the family business of reality TV! According to reports the couple has inked a deal and has been quietly filming a spinoff about their blended family drama called ‘Meet The Tuckers‘!
Married life has not been easy for Kandi and Todd from Mama drama, to combining a household with their two teenaged daughters while also trying to build a production business as a couple. The couple has also dealt with the sudden passing of Todd’s mother Sharon. All of the mishaps, mayhem, and family planning has been featured on Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras and the couple’s previous wedding spinoff Kandi’s Wedding.
Kandi has seemed over the drama on RHOA this season and she hasn’t really engaged with co-stars instead focusing on her own family, including counseling with Todd, probably because her spinoff deal was in the works all along!
Mario was getting very busy in the Hamptons, according to Patti, a close friend of Jill Zarin‘s, who reveals she’s seen Mario on the prowl and chalks up his indiscretions to a mid-life crisis. Last night while appearing on WWHL, Patti was asked about Mario and Ramona’s 20-year marriage, and Patti had a lot to say.
Anyone remember Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo‘s epic brawl with Sundy Carter on season 3 of Basketball Wives LA? This was before Draya got all like, ‘I’m too classy to remember how ratchet I was now that I’m dating a Dallas Cowboy.’ Well anyway, now that Sundy is no longer under contract with Vh1 she has filed a police report against her former co-star citing that Malaysia and Draya’s attack gave her permanent eye damage!
Sundy claims that during the incident, which occurred in 2013, Draya punched her, then Malaysia followed that up with a hit to her eye socket – and ever since her vision has been blurry and she needs glasses.
“I think it’s great that Bethenny came back,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star explained on WWHL’s After Show. “It’s hard when you keep changing the recipe, and I’m curious – I wanna know what everyone’s doing from when I started to watch the show.”
Claudia Jordan has almost survived her first season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta (although she hasn’t experienced a reunion yet!), and while Claudia is hoping to be back next year, she hopes Porsha Williams won’t be joining her. Claudia forgets the first rule of reality television: Making someone relevant with a feud gives them a storyline, so all the times she keeps Porsha’s name in her mouth, Bravo is taking note and the chances of Poortaste returning increases!
Claudia believes Porsha just isn’t being herself. “She’s cute and glamorous – and that’s great – but I think we need more than that. I don’t think it’s enough to be on the show just co-signing whatever NeNe says,” Claudia complains. “That’s not a good character on a reality show. I think that’s kind of boring.” Interesting considering Claudia is on this show co-signing whatever Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey say… but go ahead.
Hey y’all – wanna talk about “semantics” with Brandi Glanville? She probably can’t define that word, but I bet the ghostwriter who allegedly writes her blogs can! Now that Brandi can no longer blame Lisa Vanderpump for everything that’s wrong in her life, she’s switched her vitriolic focus to Lisa Rinna and it’s all because Brandi believes Lisa intentionally tried to sabotage her friendship with Kim Richards by claiming Brandi said Kim needed an intervention.
Now all of us who watch Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills know what happened in that fateful conversation between Brandi and Lisa: Brandi both heavily implied and directly stated Kim was not OK and needed help. Brandi again reiterated those statements to her sober coach friend, Jen. There were also comments about pain patches and nebulous statements about what Kim is “doing.”
Lisa interpreted that to mean Kim needed their help, and Brandi wanted her assistance in providing that help. Sure the word “intervention” was never explicitly said by Brandi (this is the semantics part she fails to grasp), but when Lipsa said, “Not like an intervention?” Brandi didn’t reply, “Oh no Kim doesn’t need that! She just needs friends inviting her out to the movies and doing other sober fun things to get her out of the house and feeling more positive!” No, Brandi said, “Maybe you should do an intervention with all of us.” At worst, Lipsa is guilty of misinterpretation and getting overly involved.
Evelyn Lozada is returning to reality TV – this time with a different fiancé. Evelyn just scored a new show, tentatively called ‘Evelyn‘ which will air on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and chronicles her new life with MLB player Carl Crawford, her relationship with daughter Shaniece Hairston, and her son Carl Leo Jr, who just turned 1.
Evelyn premiers in July, and is produced by Shed Media, with Evelyn also serving as an executive producers. The show will focus primarily on Evelyn and Shaniece’s evolving lives, and how their relationship changes as well.
“‘Evelyn‘ will follow Lozada and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece, both of whom are experiencing big changes in their lives,” reveals The Wrap. “Lozada will have to learn how to balance her many business opportunities with being a new mother. Meanwhile, Shaniece’s modeling career is taking off.”
I’m confused here… are the Real Housewives Of Atlanta moving forward – or not? Claudia Jordan gushed about how the group took a positive turn following their therapy session, and upcoming trip to Manilla, but now she is continuing to complain about how awful Porsha Williams is and insist that she’s really really positive while some people have “vendettas.” This group is exhausting me.
Contrary to what she said earlier this week, Claudia now says that the progress made in therapy was minimal. Of course this was all NeNe Leakes’ fault – Really, but NeNe doesn’t work alone – it was also totally PORSHA’s fault! OF COURSE. #ObsessionByBravo
Of therapy, Clawdia complains in her blog that, “The main people that needed it were not willing participants. One took off because she couldn’t deal with hearing about how her actions affected the rest of the ladies. And the other that stayed, well… she received apology after apology without ever acknowledging any of her own wrong doing.”
