Nia Frazier is the sweet-natured, hard-working fan-favorite on Dance Moms, even if her belligerent dance coach Abby Lee Miller doesn’t recognize her as the amazing person she is.
Nia recently released her first music video, Star In Your Own Life, which she worked on with Aubrey O’Day, and she doesn’t care whether Abby likes it or not, because she’s proud of herself! Nia also shares she’s remained close friends with her former teammates and co-stars Paige Hyland and Chloe Lukasiak, and that all the girls on the show support each other despite Abby’s attempt to cause friction.
Bethenny Frankel is switching gears from “professional reality star” to producer. She’s been hinting about working on a new television project for a while, and that new project is a cooking show called ‘Food Porn.’
FYI Network has greenlit the 14-episode series co-executive produced by Bethenny (who mercifully will remain behind the camera) and hosted by New York restaurateur and The Meatball Shop co-owner Michael Chernow. ‘Food Porn’ will build on the “cultural phenomena” of how social media and food have merged together to create an interactive world of cooking and eating.
For each episode Michael Chernow will travel the country to find the most “buzzed-about food” and meet with those behind the most delicious online food posts.
Momma Dee was in a car accident yesterday and was rushed to the hospital. The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was riding in an Uber through Atlanta when they were rear-ended in traffic.
Momma Dee was in “severe pain” after the impact of the accident injured her back so she left the scene to go to the hospital – but NOT before getting TMZ on her iPhone for a little of-the-minute PR. #PRIORITIES #FameBeforeFeelingBetter
Of course, it makes me sad that Luann and Carole’s friendship got like all uncool, but it makes me even more curious – what happened?! Obviously the issue stemmed from Carole’s relationship with Luann’s chef Adam – but it’s not so simple as an etiquette misstep, Luann reveals that Carole’s cavorting with her chef caused some family drama! Oh bother.
Kim Richards is currently in rehab – again – to seek help with her addiction issues. She made the decision to accept treatment after a disastrous Dr. Phil interview and a recent arrest for public intoxication, but she’s not happy about it!
Dr. Phil confronted the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star about her manipulative and deceitful behaviors and her inability to face the truth. When he offered to get Kim treatment she stormed-out and berated him. Kim finally did check-in to rehab – reportedly a 30-day inpatient program in Malibu – but sources say she is up to her shenanigans in treatment of being demanding, impossible, and trying to leave!
It’s no surprise that Abby Lee Miller has let her fame go to her head, but now she’s treating Dance Moms producers the same way she treats her dancers and their mothers! Abby is blaming producers for the show’s constant conflicts and arguing lamenting they don’t respect her or the cast.
Abby went on a tirade against producers, calling them “morons” and if they don’t change their ways, she wants them to change their jobs. In true vitriolic Abby fashion she refused to take accountability for the negativity of Dance Moms, and accused producers of destroying it by faking conflicts and issues on the show. Which is the ultimate insult for Abby who declares she is fully capable of berating mothers and dancers without producer assistance.
NeNe Leakes wants it known that she is NOT. GOING. ANYWHERE… unless confronted by fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta co-stars! Weighing in on the season and her new pal Phaedra Parks‘ possible divorce, NeNe advises Phaedra to follow her heart, meanwhile Kenya Moore suggests Phaedra is actually following viewer’s opinion when it comes to her divorce from Apollo Nida!
“Whatever goes on in Phaedra’s home is between her and Apollo – we don’t have to sleep with Apollo at night,” NeNe adds. Well, neither does Phaedra – at least not for the next 6 or 7 years (depending on good behavior).
