Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
The new season of 16 & Pregnant premiers on MTV Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County,Slave took the stage, in what he presumed was a hysterical commentary on Housewives in their natural habitat, including the wrath of Miss. Piggy. Who really does not deserve to be unfairly compared with a certain lady of last night’s entertainment. Miss Piggy is actually well dressed as we know!
Things begin with Tamra showing up at Vicki‘s to make breakfast. Tamra looks cute – I love her shirt. Vicki immediately launches into what’s the deal with Gretchen? Are they besties, what happened, when, and why wasn’t she informed? Vicki is disappointed Tamra never confided her new friendship and warns Tamra that’s she going to have a brown nose because it’s so far up Gretchen’s mmmm. That close up of Vicki was a little frightening, no? Thanks editors!

Mugshot Marlo Hampton is all about clearing her goodish name and promoting herself, now that she has the illustrious and reputable platform of Real Housewives of Atlanta. The notorious Marlo, who certainly is the most notorious Housewife to grace the screens of Atlanta, is answering questions about her questionable past and encouraging us to reserve judgement. Yeah to the right!
Marlo wants you to know she isn’t full of excuses and fully embraces her ex-conn ex-life, but she wants to set the story straight and separate reality from reality TV. “There’s much more to Marlo than the 10 minutes” on the show, Marlo warns.
“I was surprised that they were focusing on my arrests,” Marlo admits. “Phaedra [Parks] with her husband and Sheree [Whitfield] has had her mix-up with the law. I was shocked about Kim [Zolciak] and the way she was talking about a Big Poppa when she dated a married man.”
Marlo says the trouble started in college. That was arrest number one. “While I was in college, that’s when I got into altercations and that was a felony charge. I was just mad at the world,” she explains to Sister 2 Sister. Marlo, apparently, attended University of South Florida and earned a BA in Interdisciplinary Science. Shocked? Yeah, me too!
Then, she was arrested and charged for check fraud. “I mis-balanced my check for the books I was buying. It was one check for me just being in college writing a check for one book. They blew that so out of proportion,” Marlo insists. “I wasn’t the best in math.” It’s called a calculator, m’dear!
Unfortunately, things spiraled from there and next thing she knew she had seven mugshots under her (then Forever 21) belt! “It’s important for people to know I was on house arrest. Four of those were probation violations and not new charges,” Marlo clarifies. Marlo claims in one arrest, the accuser actually defended her to the judge! “She had asked the judge to reduce my sentence and we made peace. We’re fine. We’ve talked several times.” I’m assuming she’s referring to her arrest for aggravated assault.
Marlo’s criminal past prevented her from getting a job so she had to hook up with wealthy sugar daddies so she opened her own business, a clothing store. “When I started taping with the show, I closed the store down.”
Marlo cautions viewers, “Don’t go by just what they see,” because there is definitely more to her than meets the eye! That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
Moving right along, Sheree has a lot to say lately. Is it because she really, really can’t afford to get fired wants to secure a place in Season 5? Taking to her Bravo Blog, she is dishing on the fight with Marlo, the trip to Africa, and the comments about Kim!
According to Sheree, the tension began at the airport. “Upon seeing Marlo, I knew instantly that there would be some drama, because she was not invited by Phaedra, the host. Why was no one informed that she would be coming on the trip? I knew she felt the need to do something to get attention!”
Sheree claims the dinner party invite debacle occurred when her friend Kevin called last-minute and asked her to include Cynthia in the invitation. “I didn’t think to invite Cynthia [Bailey], because I was sure she wouldn’t attend without NeNe [Leakes], and I certainly wasn’t going to invite Nene. We had not spoken since the argument a few months ago and after the disrespectful way she acted at Kim’s friend’s house in Miami last year, it just wasn’t happening.”
“As we are getting ready for dinner, my friend Kevin calls, who also knows Cynthia and NeNe, and asks me to invite Cynthia to the dinner. Well I did,” Sheree recalls.
And Sheree is accusing Cynthia of pulling a “Taylor Armstrong” and saying things to Marlo behind her back to re-instigate the situation! “Cynthia, Cynthia, Cynthia…messy. I’m not quite sure what the problem was.”
“For Marlo to run over and go from 0 to 60 all because I did not invite her, the person who no one knew was coming (not even the host) and that came with NeNe (the person I don’t speak to), to a party! Really?! Why would she want to go? Why would I want her to go? Why is she so angry? Why is she using hateful, derogatory words? Why would she choose to use that word to describe my friends? I’m not a judgmental person by any means. I love all kinds of people, regardless of their sexual preference.”
And about all of Marlo’s accusations, Sheree wants you to know she has standards. Are we considering Bob Whitfield “standards” now? “I refuse at this day and time to sell myself short. I like what I like, and I can tell you for certain that sleeping with senior citizens just for bags, shoes, or money definitely isn’t it!”
Now onto that infamous safari ride, where it may or may not have been implied that Kim is racist, uninterested in international travel and too self-absorbed to bother with underprivileged children or dealing with NeNe in a foreign country. “The safari ride with Phaedra, Cynthia, andKandi [Burruss] got really interesting,” Sheree recounts.
“Was it just me or were there ONLY black babies/children there?;” Sheree wonders, referring to the orphanage. “To me, making those statements and agreeing with Cynthia on that sentiment was basically insulting Kim and implying she could possibly be racist. It seemed to me like she was throwing her friend Kim under the bus. I don’t understand why Kandi can’t seem to grasp that. Who wants to possibly have to defend their character to millions of people about something someone said, especially if it could possibly be untrue? It’s not fun!”
“I chose to mention what was said in the jeep not while Kandi wasn’t present but while she sat next to me, because I didn’t feel like that was right. If she really felt that way, then she should tell her and allow her to respond.”
Sheree admits she mis-communicated what was actually said, and Kandi did not make the comment about Kim holding black babies. “Again, I stand corrected, Kandi did not say the black baby thing.”
“Believe me, if it were the other way around or if it were any of my other close friends and I witnessed someone they think is their friend talking badly about them, I would do the absolute same.”
As for some of the good moments of the trip, Sheree says she loved the safari and enjoyed her time at Kevin’s dinner party. “Overall, my African experience was simply amazing and very educational,” she concludes. “The most touching part of this entire experience was going to the orphanage and the village to give away some much needed goods.”
HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR OPINION OF MARLO AFTER HEARING HER SIDE OF THE STORY? WILL MARLO BE BACK NEXT SEASON? WAS SHEREE WRONG TO START DRAMA BY TELLING KIM WHAT WAS SAID ON SAFARI?
Well, first they were getting married and now they’re breaking up! It seems the speculation over Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush will never end. Personally, I think whenever Kimmie Kakes is in an attention slump her people plant Reggie stories knowing it will get the public talking!
In the latest, Life & Style is reporting the pair has definitely not rekindled things and Reggie was recently spotted with yet another Kim lookalike!
Apparently, post-divorce Kimmie was very confident Reggie would give her, yet, another chance to redeem herself, but he was not interested! “She thought Reggie would take her back after the whole Kris Humphries debacle,” a friend reveals. “Reggie’s her one true love. He could easily fire things up with Kim now, but he’s chosen not to.”
“Reggie likes hanging out with Kim, but he’s not into all the publicity,” a friend reports. “He’s pretty much told told her, ‘I don’t love you like that anymore; we’re just friends.’”
And proving that he’s definitely not in the running to be another Mr. Kardashian, Reggie has recently been spotted out and about in Malibu with another curvy brunette who is “a new girl he’s been seeing.” A photo of Reggie with his new mystery woman is below!
Reggie isn’t limiting himself to just one girl. He’s also been romancing a woman named Claudia in Miami and still seeing Old Navy ad starlet Melissa Molinaro. Kim filed a lawsuit against Old Navy because she believes Melissa was cast in their ads to intentionally fool the public into believing Kim endorsed the company.
Now that Kim’s hopes for Reggie have been dashed the Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar is trying to move on to a new man. Allegedly, Kim’s handlers are trying to convince her that a new husband will take the attention away from her disastrous, impending, divorce trial which may turn out to be public!
We all know that if Kim marries again or even gets a new boyfriend at this point in time people would be outraged. “Kim is definitely being ill-advised,” a source admits. “To jump into another relationship would worsen the negative publicity – it would be professional suicide.” Worse than filing for divorce after 72-days following a multi-million dollar televised wedding?
And speaking of Kris H, Khloe Kardashian is speaking out about the very first time she met Kim’s future ex-husband. Khloe claims she knew Kris wasn’t right for Kim after he accused her of pulling a Kimmie with her own marriage. I smell damage control! “When I met Kris the very first time, I had just landed in New York and it was late at night … and he was in Kourtney [Kardashian] and Kim’s suite,” Khloe toldJay Leno on The Tonight Show.
“And I went in there to say, ‘Hi’ because Kim was like, ‘Oh, I wanna introduce you to my friend,’” she recounted. “They’d just started dating. And you know, one of the first things that came out of his mouth — like within the first five minutes — was, ‘So, how much you getting paid to fake your marriage? Like how long are you gonna keep this up for?’” BWAHAHA! Kris so had their numbers pegged. Genius!
Khloe was, of course, massively offended. I mean her wedding was like for realz, y’all! “I was like, ‘Dude, I don’t know if you’re trying to make me laugh,’” she explained. “So, ever since then, I had a very defensive wall brought up.”
Khloe went onto share that Kris just “rubbed me the wrong way,” and she knew things wouldn’t work out in the end between Kris and Kim. “I’m gonna be a good sister … but I can’t lie and say this is perfect if I feel in my heart I just didn’t agree with it,” she confessed.
Finally, Kim –who is a good Christian girl now, fully devoted to her church–has been up to her old antics of posting bra pics on Twitter. Kim spent some of her massive amounts of free time photographing herself without make-up, and doing yet another comparison shot of herself after a 300 hour make-up spackling.
“Before & After,” Kim tweeted, then she followed that up with another au naturale shot of herself wearing a bra with sweatpants. “Sweatpants hair tie chillin with no make up on,” she wrote. Photos of Kim before & after and in her bra are below! Anything for attention, that one!

Vicki is speaking out, and she claims she wasn’t jealous at all, and in fact, encouraged Tamra to put the nonsense with Gretchen to rest. Vicki does realize we’re watching the show, right? Vicki calls comments about her jealousy “just silly,” saying she is happy the two have mended fences. “I told Tamra last year, I had hoped that they could be at least cordial to one another and I encouraged her to stop all that nonsense.”
“To say I’m jealous is the farthest thing from my mind,” Vicki writes in her Bravo Blog. “I mean really. . .we are in our 40s. Why can’t we have many friends versus just one?”
And Vicki claims Tamra started isolating the other ladies to swoon over Gretchen. “I feel Tamra is the type of friend that focuses on one friend at a time, and then tends to find faults in the others to alienate them from the group,” Vicki says. “You can see that happening this year again. It seems every year she is mad at someone or trying to find fault in someone, which I just don’t understand.” Funny that Vicki is complaining about this when Tamra used to feel that way about her and Vicki loved it!
“I wish and pray that Tamra and Gretchen will have a friendship that will last a lifetime,” she concludes. “But to state publicly they are BFFs right out of the gate is a little odd. . .” Ah-greed, Vicki!
Moving on, Vicki takes issue withSlade and Gretchen’s reveal of Brooks’ child support issues, and she insists that he isn’t the deadbeat dad he plays on TV. Isn’t that what Slave has been saying all these years, which she dismissed as bull shitake? #hypocrite.
“I am saddened and appalled that Gretchen and Slade felt it important to bring Brooks child support issues up,” Vicki seethes. “First of all, if most of you remember I did not talk about Slade, his work, or child support issues at all last year. If you recall I actually publicly apologized for commenting on something that is so personal and none of my business.” Wait a second, I seem to remember her doing just that, both on the show, and the reunion. Roll the tape!
“I did not condone Tamra calling Grayson‘s mom when we were filming the reunion last year to discuss his personal and financial issues. It was NONE of my business or Tamra’s, and I found it terribly disrespectful and felt it crossed the line,” Vicki adds. “Now that I am dating Brooks, I guess Gretchen and Slade feel I’m a good target to hit because of Brooks’ past situation.”
And once again, she is defending Brooks! “Brooks children are his utmost priority in his life. It is for this reason that I respect and love him so immensely. PERIOD. He loves his children with all of his might and sees his children as much as possible.”
“He is not a deadbeat dad,” Vicki insists. “When the financial difficulty hit Brooks he more than made up in the other areas of their lives.”
“Brooks got behind in child support and was arrested. Neither Brooks nor I have denied that and it is terribly humiliating and embarrassing to him,” Vicki explains, adding that he had no intention of being in the public eye and dealing with this issue on camera. “Because Brooks is dating me (which equates to being on camera), he has had to publicly face the backlash from press and people, which he did not want.”
“I just want everyone to know that there are TWO sides to every story. Brooks is an amazing man and father, or I wouldn’t be with him. End of discussion.” Well, interesting… I think Vicki just wants a full love tank and nothing else matters!
Finally, Heather Dubrow has gotten off on the wrong foot with most of the ladies – and the audience. After coming across as “pretentious,” to quote Alexis Bellino, Heather is setting the record straight in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Heather claims she’s anything but arrogant – she’s just misunderstood. Uh-huh.
“It’s very easy to listen to one comment and make a snap judgment,” Heather insists. “I’m actually very jokey, and on the show I tell this story about the way I got proposed to, but it’s a joke, I love my husband. You know I married him, not a ring, not a proposal, but it’s kind of a funny story.”
“You heard a piece of it, so if you don’t think it’s funny, and you think it’s pretentious, that’s all right. But in general I am not a pretentious person. I do like nice things, we do live in a great house, but I don’t choose my friends by how much money they have, or what labels they’re wearing.”
Apparently, it was Heather’s husband Terry Dubrow who encouraged her to do the show, citing his past participation in such reality shows as Bridalplasty. Yeah – horrible, I know. “He thought it would be fun, and he thought it would be good for me,” Heather explains. “He basically didn’t talk to me for two weeks until I said I’d do it.”
“It’s a great platform, I mean, I don’t know, I guess if you ask me if I think it’s a good idea if I did this show, ask me in four months. But I think in general, it was an opportunity, Terry and I discussed it, and we decided that the pros outweighed the cons.”
And if you’re expecting Heather to turn all Tamra-trashy – don’t! She doesn’t fly off the handle and go stark raving mad (until her second season when Bravo threatens not to renew her contract!), although she does lose it on alleged-grifter and friend of the Housewives Sarah Winchester. Yeah I can see that!
“I have more filters than the other girls do,” Heather believes. “Except for one person that I dealt with on the show, who was very irrational, I’m not a yeller. So even though I’m being vocal about it, I am not someone who’s going to get in your face. That’s not me. But, I will very clearly and concisely tell you how I feel.”
In the interview, Heather also talks about dealing with infertility. Heather has stated on the show that her fourth child was a “surprise” and further explains this by adding her daughter was also a miracle. “The truth is that I had three children by in vitro. I had a lot of, personally me, not [my husband], but me, I had a lot of fertility problems,” reveals Heather. “So to have a natural child was shocking, and I think I’m still a little shocked by the whole thing and I was ready to go back to work, my other three were in school full-time, and it really changed everything.”
Tonight is an all new episode of RHOC, and the ladies continue to figure out what’s going on between Gretchen and Tamra. (GretchRa? TamChen?) Alexis and Heather do lunch and things don’t go well, and Slave embarks upon his new comedy career. A preview of the new episode is below!
Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny had a girls weekend in Montauk where she confronted her daddy issues. She also wondered about Jason‘s vacations past as a homosexual. And we learn that Jason is finally growing part of a pair and putting his foot down about the home office situation by implementing a schedule!
Things start out with Bethenny meeting her new bestie Hoda for lunch. I do love Bethenny’s dress. The two have bonded over being very busy.
Over ordering Virginica oysters, Bethenny decides to inform both Hoda and the annoyed waiter that the menu options sound like her “wazoo” except nothing about Bethenny seems plump or balanced. Leave it to Bethenny to turn lunch porny. Good lord – she really needs to stop with the stupid, gross vag-talk. The waiter was mortified, which amused Beth.

In today’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills news update, the ladies remind us that even though the season ended they’re still here and very much looking for some attention. Can’t they go into housewives hibernation when the series is on hiatus? How’s that for some alliteration!
To kick things off, Kim Richards, really, really wants the producers to know that despite the fact that she missed 3/4 of filming last season and regularly embarrassed herself on national television, she’s like totally down for round three!
Despite a very rocky last season, which, culminated with her entering rehab last December, Kim says she wants to come back to prove that sobriety is possible! Kim says she’s learned many lessons from appearing on the show and from going through treatment. “It makes me want to step out in front of everything and just say, ‘You know what, anybody can do it,’” Kim told US Magazine. “I don’t want to walk away from anything in my life. It’s part of life: facing it!”
“My fans have been so supportive. People walk up to me and they just hug me and cry. That’s so rewarding to me,” Kim says of the support she’s gotten.
As for what helped her focus on on getting sober, Kim credits, “My family and friends–without them I just couldn’t do it.” Richards said. “It was a rough road to get here, but I’m really, really good.”
Reports have claimed, Kim will not return next season because she is choosing to leave the show. Other reports have claimed Kim will not be asked back, because she is seen as a liability following a season of erratic behavior.
Moving right along, Taylor Armstrong, self-proclaimed expert on domestic violence, has some advice for recording artists, collaborators, and ex-couple Rihanna and Chris Brown! Surprisingly, Taylor says she thinks it’s totally fine for Chris and Rihanna to work together despite their violent history. “I do believe you can have a healthy relationship with someone years after,” Taylor revealed.
“I don’t know what their relationship is now, but as long as they’re keeping one another safe and at a good distance, or if they’ve had the appropriate treatment they can collaborate on a project without it being dangerous,” Taylor advocated while appearing on HLN.
Taylor added that she thinks the two can use their fame as a platform to educate the public on domestic violence. “I think that they have a real opportunity here to make a huge impact in the domestic violence world and I think they’re going to do that right thing.”
As for her own situation, she claims to have an amicable relationship with estranged husband Russell Armstrong, before he committed suicide, saying they were working together to co-parent positively. “We weren’t safe being married; we weren’t safe living in the same household. But could we have gone on to have a healthy co-parenting relationship and a friendly relationship? Absolutely,” Taylor remarked. Um… shocking and odd. But then again, Taylor is the person who totes her seven-year-old daughter along to book signings for a book that’s entire focus is about how horrible the child’s, now deceased, father was. So, yeah…
Taylor’s future with RHOBH is also uncertain, with multiple conflicting reports speculating her appearance on next season!
Sources close to Kelsey reveal he and Camille agreed to joint custody of their two kids — 10-year-old Mason and 7-year-old Jude. The kids will continue living with Camille in California, while, Kelsey continues to have “meaningful contact” with them. Still on the table? The couple’s divorce settlement, though, sources say they are also close to coming to an agreement with that.
Finally, Brandi Glanville has still not recovered from her tumultuous first season with the ladies of Beverly Hills. Brandi is now speaking out about the “bullying” she feels she was subjected to, at the hands of co-tarts, such as Kyle Richards.
“I’ve never really experienced anything like that,” Brandi told Hollyscoop. “It was kind of like going into mean girls’ camp and fighting your way out and like, I’ve never experienced it so I didn’t know how to deal with it.”
“I mean, I know [bullying] is an issue, but I never really realized how bad it could feel until this happened,” Brandi admitted. Her experiences on the show were not all bad, however; Brandi says she made real-life good friends in Camille Grammer andLisa Vanderpump.
“I talk to Lisa every morning,” Brandi shared. “She gives me really great advice and she tells me not to cuss on Twitter, and she’s constantly like mommying me in a way. Like, she’s not old enough to be my mom clearly, but she’s constantly saying, ‘Don’t wear that, don’t say that!’ But I like it, it’s cute.”

SHOULD KIM GET A THIRD CHANCE ON RHOBH? DO YOU BELIEVE RETURNING TO THE SHOW IS A HEALTHY OPTION FOR HER? DOES TAYLOR HAVE A RIGHT TO COMMENT ON CHRIS AND RIHANNA’S SITUATION – ARE HER COMMENTS REASONABLE OR RIDICULOUS? WAS BRANDI BULLIED?
Marlo Hamptonwants you to know there is more to her than designer labels! Atlanta’s most contested and derided housewife is speaking out about who she really is, and defending herself to the critics.
To start out, Marlo says she never cared that her then-boyfriend Charles Grant allegedly dated co-star (and now friend) NeNe Leakes, and she came on the show with an open-mind. “The girls wanted it to be something major,” she insists. But she does care about how she is portrayed on the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
She is also happy she was able to participate in the trip to South Africa, despite the unsavory taste it left in most viewer’s mouths. Marlo calls the trip to Africa “a life experience,” save for the argument she had with Sheree Whitfield. “I hate that that happened,” she muses to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I would not have cared about her inviting me to the party, because I know that Sheree doesn’t really care for me too much, whatever. But, after we sat on the boat and we’re all like ‘Hey, we’re going to bond, at least when we see each other we’re going to speak, we’re going to be cordial,’ I’m like, OK, we’re starting off on a new foot, we’re connecting,” Marlo explains.
“So as soon as we get back to the room, you call Cynthia [Bailey] over and invite Cynthia and not me, really? Sheree, seriously? Where we just left 30 minutes ago saying ‘Oh, we’re going to try to get along,’ so that really just shocked me. And then we started the argument, I guess the part that blew me was when she was like, ‘Oh don’t go there, you’re dating an 80-year-old white man.’ I just lost it.”
She does regret using the word “faggot” during the course of her rage. “I feel absolutely awful,” she admits. “When I said the ‘f-word,’ this wasn’t on camera, but I was crying, I was so pissed off and frustrated.”
Marlo says her sister is gay, along with her assistant and she is deeply involved in the community. “I called home to Daniel, my assistant who’s gay. I just told him about the whole thing about Sheree, I mean, I just felt awful, I mean, I was upset like that whole night.”
And she wants you to know using the word isn’t as bad as one might think! “But the only thing about it, when I talked to Lawrence [Washington] about it, he told me a ‘faggot’ was a gay messy male. And I did know that guy was being messy, but he’s like ‘Marlo, you cannot say that, though, you’re not gay. It’s like a man calling you the B-word.’”
“I did apologize, my friends love me and they know I was just talking, and I’m just trying to build that relationship back with the gay community, because, I mean that was awful, I really feel bad about that.”
As for how she earns the money to pay for all that Lu-wee VooTAWN, Marlo insists she used to work and she’s really good at investing! “I mean, from work, and I did own and found the Red Carpet Boutique at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta for three years, which I just closed when I started taping with Bravo.”
“Of course, I have been spoiled by my boyfriends,” she adds. “The main part is that I invested my money.”
“I wasn’t crazy, I didn’t have to spend on everything. My home is paid for, my vehicles are paid for… I came from nothing to where I never want to go back to being a foster child, being homeless, or being in the projects, and just struggling, and not knowing where my next meal was going to come from. I don’t want to go back to that.”
Marlo admits she was “puzzled” by Kandi Burruss asking her about the source of her income. She believs Kandi is so concerned about her cash flow because she’s jealous! “It’s jealousy and envy, that’s what it was. I mean, it’s got to be jealousy and envy, something, Lord — women with low self-esteem only,” she insists.
“The gay men love me, men love me, and strong-minded women love me, who have high self-esteem. Only the low self-esteem women have a problem with me, and it’s like, ‘Why? What is your problem?’ Just because I love fashion, my story is different from yours, my occupation is different from yours, what is the problem?”
And speaking of boyfriends who take care of you, Marlo insists she actually likes Kim Zolciak and wasn’t trying to “jab” her with all the Big Poppa talk during Cynthia’s modeling school opening. “When I originally met Kim, she was so nice and sweet and talking to me, but I wasn’t trying to pull a jab. It came off like one though, but I really wasn’t.”
“I said I had a Big Poppa,” Marlo clarifies. “I feel like, it wasn’t even about you Kim. And she has a past herself, and her comments about me have been inappropriate, but it is what it is. But it wasn’t targeted towards her. But her comments about me are inappropriate, that’s what’s crazy.”
Finally, Sheree is speaking out about why she decided to tell Kim about Kandi and Cynthia’s comments in Africa! And she is defending her decision to spill the beans, claiming it was all about loyalty! “I believe in friendship, I believe in loyalty. If you say something, you need to own it.”
Sheree admits that she initially misspoke about who made the comment. “I stand corrected: Cynthia did make the initial comment about Kim, but Kandi immediately agreed with her.”
“Only that wasn’t shown. No one watching at home realized that Kandi had agreed with Cynthia. Hopefully, they’ll air the entire conversation during the reunion.”
As for Kandi’s accusations that Sheree threw her under the bus, Sheree dismisses that as ridiculous. ” I told Kim about the incident while Kandi was standing right there next to me — so I wasn’t throwing anyone under the bus. I just strongly believe that if you say something behind someone’s back, you should be able to say it to their face.”
Sheree tells Wetpaint she was more angry that Kandi agreed with Cynthia’s comment – particularly since Cynthia isn’t close with any of the ladies involved. “Cynthia and Kim aren’t close. There’s no loyalty there — they’re not friends,” Sheree reveals. “But Kandi is supposed to be Kim’s friend — and I thought it was strange that she was agreeing with Cynthia on a sentiment that was basically insulting Kim and implying she could possibly be racist.”
The decision to call Kim was made by the producers, according to Sheree, but she decided to tell Kim what was discussed in the jeep. “After the jeep ride, the producers asked us to call Kim, so we did,” she claims she didn’t mention Cynthia’s involvement in the conversation because she and Kim “aren’t close,” but Kandi and Kim are ‘close friends.’” After Tardy For The Party? I beg to differ!
“Kim was thankful that I mentioned it,” Sheree explains. “She knows I’m not messy person. Most real friends would appreciate that.” As for her relationship with Kandi, the two are good now, but things were tense for a while.
The conversation continues next episode when Kim confronts Kandi and a blow-out fight happens!
THOUGHTS ON MARLO’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE WORKED HARD AND SAVED HER MONEY? DO YOU BELIEVE SHEREE TOLD KIM ABOUT KANDI’S COMMENTS OUT OF LOYALTY? WAS SHEREE IN THE WRONG TO DO SO?
