Do you think former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin ever really listens to what is coming out of her mouth? I don't mean that to sound ugly, but I honestly don't think she hears herself…or if she does, she has to be one of the most self-confident, yet always victimized, women in reality show history. It's almost comical.
Perhaps I shouldn't have watched her again on a Watch What Happens Live rerun, but I'll admit I got sucked into it. It's as if Jill was watching an entirely different show than the rest of us! When you read her recent interview after the jump, you'll get an even better taste of what I mean. She touts Kim Kardashian's work ethic (she's almost as hard-working as Jill herself!), and pretty much poo poos poor people…or at least people who like to shop at K-Mart. Perhaps she's never seen some of Sofia Vergara's line!
Last week the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlantahit up Anguilla for what was supposed to be a vacation. It was instead a trip devoted to baby-sitting Kenya Moore - and it seems tonight will be no different!
The socially inhibitious Housewife proceeded to get her drink on and flirt/molest every single man in site – including the very married ones. The only person not getting their fare share of Kenya's attentions was made for TV pseudo boyfriendWalter Jackson who was literally just along for the ride!
Tonight Kenya continues her charade of pretending she loves Walter while shoving her coochie crack near some other men and Porsha Stewart can take no more. Porsha explains that her disgust for Kenya's behavior began when Kenya was inappropriately grinding on Cynthia Bailey's husband, Peter.
Here at RT, our job is to snark on all things reality television, be it stars, shows, or just general gossip. I'm not going to lie…it can be a lot of fun, and usually the people, programs, and situations make it super easy to write (hopefully) hilarious blog posts. However, when one of us is fortunate enough to get to interview one of the reality stars we normally joke about, it's a wake-up call…in a good way!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak with former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield about what has been going on in her life now that she is no longer involved with Bravo. I'll be honest, I was a tad bit nervous. It's not every day you get to have a conversation with someone you watched religiously on TV, especially when part of your job is to spew humor at her expense. I'm from a city in South Carolina just two hours from Atlanta, and the ATL was a favorite stomping ground in college and remains a shopping mecca for people in my neck of the woods. That said, RHOA and its stars have always held a special place in my heart. I'll likely never eat at RHOBH'sLisa Vanderpump's SUR (sigh), but it's really cool to see the women of Atlanta dining and shopping places I've actually been. Of course, when I graced those restaurants and boutiques I ate a side salad and purchased nada.
Sorry for digressing, but I felt the need to share part of the reason why I was so excited to chat with Sheree. She couldn't have been more professional, kind, and gracious. Sheree dished on her new jewelry line, her plans for the future, her gratitude towards her fans, and her thoughts on RHOA.
Hey remember when Kenya Moore was telling everyone she was going to get engaged to Walter Jackson and then Walter told the media they weren't even really dating because she asked to be her pretend boyfriend just for a Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline? Yeah, well that happened – at least according to Walter!
Days after Walter spilled the secret that he was a boyfriend-for-hire ( a plot straight out of a corny Lifetime movie) and that Bravo producers had no idea they were faking things for the camera, Kenya is insisting that's not true to save her butt!
"The truth is and has always been that I want to be in a loving, honest, long-term relationship with someone who genuinely loves me for me — Walter's recent statements are completely false," Kenya told TooFab.
Those Bravo ladies will do just about anything to have a story line, but Kenya Moore, the newbie from Real Housewives of Atlanta, is taking it to a whole new level by casting her own boyfriend and future hopeful fiance! Now Walter Jackson is speaking out about his acting gig as Kenya's beau.
Kenya has gained quite a reputation for her flirting thus far this season, and her entire presence on the show revolves around her hope that Walter will soon put a ring on it. But guess what? Walter claims it is all a farce! Sure, he dated Kenya…but according to him it was three years ago for just a couple months. What? I just love love the drama…and the honesty! Find out about the craziness after the jump, as well as the latest and greatest on Kim Zolciak.
Last night the ladies ofReal Housewives of Atlanta lost one Wig Zolciak and gained one Porsha Stewart – officially – and then they said good riddance to bad rubbish and headed to paradise. Sadly it was a bit of paradise lost when Kenya Moore lost it and got frisky, handsy, desperate and crazy. I don't ever want to hear her telling anyone how they should behave again after she fondled two women's husbands and solicited a concierge for a sperm donation. On twitter she blamed her antics on the "ah ah ah ah alcohol" Girl – there are no words.
Things pick off where they left off last week with Kim storming out of the restaurant during the pre-Anguilla planning brunch. Kim stomps outside and immediately smacks a camera man, telling him, "get the f–k out of my face!" The camera crew laughs and is like, 'Please bitch, it's called a contract and you signed one!'
This is cue for Kroy Biermann (remember when we all thought he was so nice and sweet and too good for Kim?) to leap from the waiting Escalade – still driving the car Big Poppa bought, I see – and start screaming and threatening the camera crew. Oh Gomer Pyle you're so tuff. You lose your dignity over lady wig and you yell that f-word loud and proud so your mama in Montana can hear. Right. So anyone else so tired of the wigs and cigs hour?
After that the camera man reminds Kroy that Bravo will slap his butt with a lawsuit and that's not the sort of being f–ked he wants to deal with so better get in the car and drive away.
And with that Wig and Gomer drove off to the townhouse Big Poppa bought and Kim screamed "I'm done!"
Ding Dong the wig is gone! Real Housewives of Atlanta lost one of its original ladies in last week's episode when an enraged Kim Zolciak stormed out of a pre-cast trip planning brunch. Kim, who assured her co-stars she could travel during certain dates, then changed her mind citing her ever-shifting pregnancy due date.
In her last Bravo Blog for the show that made her wigs a household name, Kim speaks out about why she felt she had to quit – and denies she was ever on board for the Anguilla trip!
"Going to Anguilla would have been the trip of a lifetime, but under DOCTOR’S ORDERS I was unable to travel," Kim begins. "I had baby Kash August 15th, which was 5 weeks after that brunch!"
"Traveling 32 weeks pregnant is such a scary risk and for the women to think that I was willing to take that risk FOR THEM is absurd, especially since I don't consider them my friends."
They never go away, do they? Just because a lady has decided (or Bravo for her) that a housewives franchise isn't the way to go, the women who leave their shows always find a way to scurry back into the limelight…no matter how faded said light may seem.
Do you remember original Real Housewives of Atlanta'sLisa Wu Hartwell (now, just plain ol' Lisa Wu after a recent divorce)? She laughed in the face of She By She Broke with her affordable Closet Freak line? Yeah, she's back…and she's touting a lip gloss line and mediocre movie roles along the way. I always liked Lisa, but I understand why she bid farewell to her franchise. She was just far, far too normal.
