Who in the Housewives franchise doesn't want to be the next Bethenny Frankel? I beg of you to find one woman schilling flavored box wine or t-shirts that doesn't consider the "end in sight' to be something Bethenny related. I'm just shocked that the newest member of the club who wants to one-up Bethenny is the original Housewife jump-off into legitimate business deals…that's right. I'm referring to NeNe Leakes.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate who has become more famous for her sit-com stints than her tacky one-liners on RHOA wants her own talk show. I guess it was only a matter of time, but gracious, Neenster! You have actually achieved more success commercially than all of your counterparts combined. Why are you now setting your sights on daytime television?
It will probably come to no surprise to you, dear readers, in light of the success of Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding and the addition of the recent bouncing baby boy that joins last year's bouncing baby K.J. and two teen half sisters, Kim is going to be cutting back on RHOA.
In retaliation she is taking her daughter to court and demanding she get visitation with Kim's kids! I wonder if the wig collection is also included in the custody decree?
TamraTattles originally broke the story and discovered that on Tuesday, Aug 28th Karen filed a suit in Fulton Superior Court seeking visitation rights over her granddaughters. The Biermann boys are not included in the filing.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is touted for being one of the first (and really the only) cross-over reality TV stars – i.e. making the shift from reality TV to scripted television in a regular role. NeNe had a season-long guest role on the hit show Glee and starting this fall she will be a regular castmember on Ryan Murphy‘s new sitcom The New Normal.
According to the WSJ: “The divide between reality shows and more-traditional scripted series has long been the Berlin Wall of the TV landscape. Talent competitions like ‘American Idol’ have launched successful entertainers, and so-called docusoaps like ‘Real Housewives’ have created their own genus of celebrity. But stars who find fame under their own names have trouble getting work as fictional characters.”
NeNetellsIn Touch Weekly that Bryson kept it a secret from her for months and that’s why she denied reports that he had fathered a child.
“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” NeNe insists. “I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Hasn’t Bryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young.”
She by SheBroke lives on! Thank you Jesus! The former Real Housewife of Atlanta, who can never get her bills on straight, has been battling ex-husband Bob Whifield over child support issues for years and she’s also battling her ex-attorneys who continue to claim she hasn’t paid them. Damn, She by SheNeedsToSellThatFirkin – again?!
StraightFromTheA reports that Sheree was back in court on August 15th and was none too happy. Sheree reportedly owes 100,000s of thousands of dollars to multiple Atlanta attorneys (but notPhaedra Parks!) and just hasn’t gotten around to paying them yet. Building a chateau is a lot of work…
Last week, Sheree continued to combat allegations that she never paid her divorce attorneys. The same attorneys who famously repossesed her Aston Martin as a result of unpaid fees. The firm in question is Weinstock & Scavo, and while they are no longer in business they still have a record of whom owes what.
Ever since the fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta ended the buzz has been about producers adding two new Housewives – one tall, one small to the cast. While Kenya Moore has long been identified as the Team Tall addition, a bandy of names have been flying across the gossip channels (touting everyone imaginable who lives nearish to ATL) about who will be the second newcomer.
Well it would appear that Porsha Williams Stewart is has officially signed onto the show as the new lady!
First reporting on Porsha’s new job is StraightFromTheA, who insists that she is definitely the newest castmember. Other sites have said contracts have been signed. SFTA reveals that producers approached several ladies looking for the “It Factor” but no one seemed to work out. And then they met Porsha and signed her right away.
