NeNe Leakes will be the first to admit she has used Real Housewives Of Atlanta to her advantage to leverage a pretty spectacular career – and now other reality stars are following suit. In a battle of veteran vs. virgin, NeNe talks how reality TV has changed, while Claudia Jordan reflects on her first season.
“I would like to say I’ve grown,” NeNe says. Of being an influential black woman on TV, she says, “Reality television has been both negative and positive. When our show first started, it was mostly positive. Even though we got in your face, it was never a fist fight,” NeNe recalls. No, not a fist fight – just a wig tug courtesy of She by SheBroke! Or a plonk and a bloop and poke your eyes out, courtesy of NeNe!
Brandi Glanville has heard the expression loose lips sink ships, but she doesn’t care! In her very unfiltered podcast she calls out Kenya Moore for being weird and desperate, but has nothing but love for Teresa Giudice as a fellow sister who’s been scorned.
Unfortunately worlds of ultimate evil collided when Brandi and Kenya both joined the cast of Celebrity Apprentice, premiering next month, and the two really REALLY did not hit it off! Brandi is spilling all about Kenya’s odd behavior and her nefarious ways – and we cannot wait for Krayonce to strike back in 3… 2… 1!
“I’m watching Real Housewives Of Atlanta right now and what’s on my mind is how evil Kenya Moore is,” Brandi comments. “She’s just miserable and she also wants to get attention for herself.”

NeNe shared that the defrauding former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star brought her 4 daughters to a performance of the show and they had a great time. “My girl came to Cinderella last nite with her daughters to support me! I love seeing her. She looks so good & she’s a super strong woman,” NeNe gushed on Instagram.
Apparently in the months since Teresa was sentenced she’s become good friends with the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has been a staunch supporter of Teresa for years. <side eye>
Oh my… Brandi Glanville UNFILTERED anyone? In a recent podcast Brandi Glanville ripped Kyle Richards calling her out on being a shallow, selfish, two-faced, money and fame obsessed, bitch.
Brandi and Kyle were briefly – briefly – friends but all that changed while filming for Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Neither lady will reveal what exactly the unforgivable offense was, but they both swear to never be friends again! First Brandi slammed Kyle on the WWHL Aftershow.
“Kyle can f–king suck it! I’m going to tell you why: she’s stabbed everyone in the back,” Brandi told Andy Cohen. “For her to say she can’t forgive me, everyone else has forgiven her – she needs to check herself!”
Like Cheeto dust through the garbage disposal, these are the days of Leah Calvert‘s life. Leah has been in the midst of a custody dispute with her ex-husband Corey Simms, a divorce with her soon-to-be-second-ex-husband Jeremy Calvert, and cheating scandal with her ex-boyfriend Robbie Kidd, and possibly struggling with a drug addiction.
This week Leah confirmed that she’ll be allowing MTV to capture all the drama, as she made a eleventh hour decision to return to Teen Mom 2 after quitting the show! While many assumed she just didn’t want another one of her marital meltdowns being played out on TV, the real reason may have been that she didn’t want the cameras to capture her possibly losing custody of the twins to Corey.
Luckily, Leah and Corey settled their custody issues in court on Monday and agreed to maintain 50/50 joint custody of Ali and Aleeah. Corey was considering full custody as a result of Leah’s instability and drug issues amid rumors that she was using child support checks to buy drugs – Leah still maintains she does not have an opiate addiction – but she has found Jesus at a church that specializes in addiction sermons.
Cynthia Bailey is tired of being seen and not heard, which is exactly how she feels her “non-conversation” with NeNe Leakes went on this week’s episode. Calling her former friend a person who seeks out other miserable people, Cynthia is tired of taking the blame for their friendship falling apart – but she’s not sorry to be rid of NeNe!
Cynthia complains that NeNe is having trouble accepting that their friendship has come to an end, and is now acting as if she did nothing to contribute to that demise. “One of the last things that I recall saying at the reunion was that I believed my friendship with NeNe had come to the end of the road,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star admits.
“I was happy to let bygones be bygones, wish everyone well, and move on with my life,” Cynthia says. “I felt that too many boundaries had been crossed and chose to no longer accept friendships plagued with violations and disrespect.”
The cast of Vanderpump Rules causes major drama and brings big ratings for Bravo, but they are apparently NOT paid accordingly!
According to insiders the cast made a measly $5,000 for the entire first season, but when it turned out to be an unexpected ratings hit for the network, Bravo upped their salaries – but not nearly on a level with say, Real Housewives.
Kenya Moore is never one to mince words but when it comes to donations to Detroit Public Schools she is going IN on co-star NeNe Leakes for failing to cough up her $20,000 donation!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta starsaysNeNe is pissing her off by failing to meet her obligation to Detroit Public Schools all because she has a vendetta against her. Kenya seems to think shaming her co-star into it will force her to write that check. “Clearly she has no intention of writing the check. I think it really shows the type of person she is,” Kenya states.
