Don’t count NeNe Leakes and her acting career out just yet! Our favorite Southern gal may need to move back to L.A. again for a familiar acting gig. And no, we are not talking about the return of The New Normal — although wouldn’t that be great?? NeNe was so good (well, the whole show was wonderful) on the Ryan Murphy produced sitcom, but NBC only gave it one season.
And no, we are also not talking about filming the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Because that is not acting, right? (wink, wink)
Nope, NeNe is returning to LA to reprise her role in another Ryan Murphy hit TV show. But just how long will she need to stay?
I feel bad reporting this, because I know Kandi Burruss put her heart and soul (and her relationship to Mama Joyce) into writing and performing in A Mother’s Love, but unfortunately the tour has just been canceled after one week! Even worse – it’s not Kandi’s fault! Apparently the promoter hired to promote the tour wasn’t particularly equipped to handle the demand.
FunkyDineva, a friend of Kandi’s and a member of the cast, reveals that the promoter was allegedly “cash poor” and that paychecks were bouncing on the first week! After seeing A Mother’s Love on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, it seems it was the promoter who approached Kandi with the idea of a 30 city US tour with the hopes of eventually landing on Broadway. Unfortunately the promoter apparently didn’t have the resources, nor the cash, to pull off a huge touring production with multiple cast members. Nor, it seemed, was advertising up to snuff so ticket sales suffered.
Can you believe that Kim Zolciak has given birth to six kids!! I can’t, judging by the photos the former star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta keeps posting in Instagram. Now, Kim has never been shy about the fact that she may not have gotten her bikini-ready body from diet and exercise, but instead with a little help from her plastic surgeon. We even saw her most recent consultation on Don’t Be Tardy.
But things may have changed, now that Kim has six mouths to feed. Can’t afford to run out to the plastic surgeon when you see a bulge anymore. Or at least that is what I am assuming since Kim gave a shoutout to 310Nutrition in the Instagram caption.
Of course we all know that Phaedra Parks‘ marriage to Apollo Nida has unraveled in the wake of his legal problems. While we all assumed it was his going to prison that caused the distress, Kandi reveals that there were many, many other things we don’t know! And guess who’s right smack dab in the middle of it: Kenya Moore!
Stating that she and Phaedra are “cool” Kandi defends her friend and has her back. And she reveals that the nonsense between Kenya and Apollo is definitely not resolved, but Kandi won’t give too many details!
NeNe Leakes will be starring in Broadway’s Cinderella as the evil stepmother – but Kenya Moore definitely won’t be heading to the Great White Way to check out her rival’s performance. Oh no, Kenya already knows NeNe is wicked!
“I think it’s perfect casting, I do,” Kenya said of NeNe being cast as the evil stepmother. As for how the two Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars are getting along during filming, Kenya admitted it’s not going so well!
Kandi Burruss has made no secret about her desire to add to her family after marrying Todd Tucker last spring. But is she pregnant already? While on the road with her hit play A Mother’s Love, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared the above picture on Facebook, perhaps hinting that she may have a bun in the oven.
Well today, Apollo confirms that he is officially a prisoner! Interestingly Apollo was even able to post a video of himself from inside the prison. My, my… this place is pretty lax! Maybe he could even continue filming for Real Housewives Of Atlanta from behind bars.
