NeNe Leakes is about to take her “Girl, bye.” phrase to court (no, it’s not cause Cynthia is filing for divorce)! According to “Black-owned family business” Tees in the Trap, a company that creates tees referencing pop culture and the “urban girl experience,” NeNe lifted their slogan and their t-shirt design, but then issued them a Cease & Desist letter for infringing on her territory! Oh dear.
NeNe became known for using the phrase “Girl, bye” on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but this season she decided to expand on her vernacular by creating a line of tees that features all of NeNe’s “infamous” sayings – “Girl, bye.” included.
Unfortunately Tees in the Trap was already producing a tee that looks remarkably similar to what NeNe has brought to the market. They claim NeNe spotted one of THEIR tees in an Atlanta retailer – she was even photographed wearing it (see below) – and decided to co-opt the idea for herself! Then NeNe trademarked the phrase and is now demanding Tees in the Trap stop using it. Oh dear.
Farrah just unveiled her new boyfriend – at the same time she unleashed her blowup doll on the world (let’s hope he’s with the right model). Farrah’s new man is 26-year-old Simon Saran, a real estate agent from San Diego.
Eileen Davidson knows from many years of experience on soap operas that it’s best to keep your distance when dealing with a psychotic uber-villain, a family drama, or a former celebrity on a bender. But unfortunately she accidentally welcomed that mayhem in her home!
“Vincent and I thought it would be fun and different to have a poker tournament with the ladies,” explains the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star. “We’ve done parties like this before, and it really can be such a good time…so much for that. Vincent tried so hard to keep things light and fun, but the wheels started falling off the bus right away.”
Gia says the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is “doing amazing,” contrary to reports that Teresa is being bullied and ostracized by fellow inmates. Gia confirms they have visited Teresa, and adds that she “chats and emails with her all the time.”
After years of putting up with Stassi Schroeder‘s special unique crazy, Katie Maloney finally snapped. The straw that broke the camel’s back? Stassi expecting Katie to put their friendship before everything else going on in her life – including her relationship with Tom Schwartz and her job at SUR!
First Katie explains why she decided to go to Miami with the rest of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars. “Tom and I had just gone through an extremely difficult period, and it really shook us both to our core. I had to completely turn my attention and priorities towards our relationship and asses everything.”
Katie shares that she needed to detach emotionally and try to figure out what was salvageable and what was causing so much friction between herself and Tom 2. “I had to decide where I needed to place importance. Now considering I don’t subscribe to Jax’s bullsh–, I no longer placed any importance on what he says and does. I knew that what he says and does can and did affect me, but it was no longer important to me. Rebuilding my relationship was the most important thing to me.”
Real Housewives Of Orange County has just started filming and there are surprises on the horizon! Rumors have been stirring for a while that Bravo is looking to re-introduce former Housewives as ‘friends’ this season, and Jeana Keough just confirmed that she is indeed filming!
“Thinking about doing a little work on the OC housewives this season, what do you think?” Jeana announced on twitter earlier this week. But last night Jeana confirmed she was participating in the show and filmed with Vicki Gunvalson, her neighbor and former close friend!
This week Tom 2‘s girlfriend finally called it quits with the indomitable Stassi Schroeder, who erroneously believes that being a 4th removed descendent of Swedish Royalty (according to Ancestry.com) gives her to the right to demand ultimate servitude. Tom explains that was a longtime coming and very disappointing for Katie who believed Stassi was a true friend.
“I hear Stassi say things like, ‘I’m done.’ Get over it and yourself. It’s exhausting me to see her behave this way. She is seriously corny and is starting to seem like a parody of herself, minus the redeeming stuff,” Tom recounts.
Other than habitual mind games, I’m just gonna go ahead and declare that Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills should swear off game nights. The first one ended with a woman on crutches losing her crutches and being called a “slut pig” (holy foreshadowing metaphors at work there), and this latest one involved one woman almost needing crutches after being shoved down the stairs with a piece of pizza. Andy Cohen is redefining class for the modern age!
It all starts out innocently enough, Kyle Richards plans a spa day and the girls put on an odd assortment of outfits ranging from soccer mom at Target to ladies who lunch at Bergdorffs. (Lisa Vanderpump has been suffering from an over-dressing problem lately. Brandi Glanville has been suffering from a combo of under-dress/not wearing enough clothes problem).
Yolanda Foster is skipping this wonderful event, because despite being not being able to read, nor write, nor watch TV, she is in NYC micromanaging Gigi and Bella’s modeling careers and zipping around the globe hot on My Love‘s tail. YoFridgidaire is also seriously trying to make the stupid ‘Tile of Love’ walls happen because she sends Kyle a photo of her posed in front of the magnificent one the housekeepers made for Bella’s new apartment. I shade, but those Hadid girls are beyond beautiful and seem to have a really sweet relationship.
