Real Housewives of Atlanta

Sheree Whitfield

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s sassy fashionista, Sheree Whitfield is talking about what’s in store for the new season (hint: plenty of drama!) and giving us some dirt on her relationship with the notorious NeNe Leakes (hint: it no longer exists outside of reality TV!).

In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister, Sheree reveals that she definitely does not exaggerate who she is for the cameras! “It’s really my life,” she insists. “Maybe some of the other people are putting on. I know someone in particular who’s put on since season 1, but it’s my real life. I’m not pretending to be something I’m not. I’m not the amp-up girl. It’s real.” (Ahem… NeNe?)

“I spent a lot of time with my family. We have a great time,” she says of the good things in season four. “There’s no drama there … love and fun times.” Sheree’s storyline will also focus on resolving her never-ending child support dispute with ex-husband Bob Whitfield with a little help from her friend, Phaedra Parks! “He’s not paid in a long time,” Sheree explains. “The kids and I are fine. So, I really didn’t stress it, but every now and then, I’d make comments to him, and it was just something that probably should have been done a long time ago, but we’re just starting to take action now.”

While drama in her personal life is at a minimum, rest assured that’s not the case with certain co-stars! “You’ll definitely see another side of me,” she warns. ”I’m always in the midst of something. I try to stay away from it, and I’m constantly being pulled in.”

Claiming she doesn’t like “drama” but sometimes it’s unavoidable, Sheree promises: “I’m not going to start anything. it’s only so much a person can take. I try to avoid you as long as I can, but I can finish it in the end. I try to avoid it, but you can only do so much, especially when you have ignorant people around you.” Sheree – never cause drama? Someone needs to check you, Boo!

Never one to mince words, Sheree is certainly not sparing feelings when it comes to her former friend, now co-star and “acquaintance” NeNe! Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show with fellow Housewives Phaedra and Kandi Burruss the ladies gave the inside scoop on what’s up with the ever-so demure Ms. Leakes!

“We were friends a long time ago,” Sheree reveals. “NeNe has really changed. The fame has totally changed her. It’s gone to her head. She just feels like she’s bigger than everybody.” Apparently, that attitude is what led to a huge blowout between the co-stars!

Sheree believes her close friendship with Kim Zolciak furthered the rift in her relationship with NeNe, ultimately leading to the irreparable altercation! “It was an appearance that I had to do; I brought NeNe in on it — actually Kim, as well — and she tried to pull from me and Kim, what we were getting,” Sheree divulged.

“I don’t care about all the other things that she does, or things that she says ‘cause it really doesn’t affect me ‘cause we’re really not friends like that. We’re acquaintances,” she insists, but “when you try to pull money or take money from me, that’s just really low.”

Kandi confirms that there is a serious divide between the cast mates! “All of us don’t necessarily talk to everybody like that,” she reveals. “They started calling everybody the ‘smalls’ and the ‘talls’ by the end of the season. The taller group of us hung out and the smaller group of us would hang out.” Wow – so I’m expecting a very ummm… outrageous season and an even crazier reunion!

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4 premiers Sunday, November 6th at 10/9c on Bravo!

And tonight, Bravo is planning to air a special 15-minute first look at the new season starting at 9/8c.

ARE YOU READY FOR WHAT SOUNDS LIKE AN EPIC SEASON OF RHOA? DO YOU BELIEVE SHEREE’S CLAIMS THAT SHE DOESN’T START DRAMA? DO YOU THINK NENE HAS CHANGED?

In a new interview, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey talks about how she ended up on Housewives, what reality stardom has been like and what to expect this season! Sadly, she doesn’t really give anything good away.

Eight months after moving to Atlanta for her relationship with then boyfriend, Peter Thomas, Cynthia learned that Bravo was casting for a new Housewife. “People I knew had mentioned I should be on the show, and I was eventually approached because my name kept coming up as a candidate. I took a meeting, which led to another meeting, which led to a phone call with Bravo and a screen test.”

Cynthia says watching herself on TV during her first season was “a little mortifying.” “There’s no book on how to be on a reality show,” she confesses. “You just have to go through it. Peter and I decided the best thing to do was to put it out there – to be real. On one hand, I’m glad we put it all out there. On the other hand, I feel like we gave too much.” Is she referring to the total financial implosion that happened days before the wedding her mother and sister tried to cancel moments before she walked down the aisle?

“I think people really related to our troubles last year with this economy. I got so many letters from viewers who were losing their jobs, losing their houses, losing their cars. They were glad to see that people on TV have problems, too. It was really real. I can’t fake that kind of pressure,” Cynthia explains of last season’s issues the couple faced after Peter was forced to close Uptown.

This season Cynthia promises that, although she remains friends with out of control out-spoken co-star NeNe Leakes, she is “more opinionated” and branching out to form friendships with other ladies. “Last season, NeNe was my friend on the show, but this season I integrated with more than just NeNe, and I’m much more vocal.” Uh-oh… that means trouble!

She also formed strong friendships on the ladies’ cast trip to Africa! “We took an amazing trip there, and it’s one of my favorite things we shot this season,” she expresses. “I felt like I really bonded with each of the girls individually on the trip. We were stuck together for ten days in a Third World country, and it brought us together.”

As for what else is happening in season four of RHOA, Cynthia reveals she will be working hard on the Bailey Agency School of Fashion and Peter opened a new lounge, Bar One.

“Our show offers something different; we’re organic,” she says of what makes RHOA Bravo’s most popular Housewives series. “It is what it is with us. We’re more real, and you’re going to get great moments and major train wrecks with us.”

In other RHOA news, as you all know Kim Zolciak is engaged! She is finally showing off the glamorous rock fiancé Kroy Biermann designed especially for her! While it’s not as big as her ring from Big Poppa, the 10k ring is nothing to laugh at. It’s gorgeous! Kim revealed her sparkler to the world via TwitPic just in time for her expected 11/11/11 nuptials! A photo of Kim’s ring is below.

Well, I can’t wait! Real Housewives of Atlanta premiers on Bravo, Sunday, November 6 (9/10c).

THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU PREDICT TROUBLE BETWEEN HER AND NENE THIS SEASON? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SEASON FOUR OF RHOA? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RING?

With the new season premiering on Bravo November 6, the ladies of Atlanta are gearing up for more drama (Nene Leakes will be back, after all!). However, when all is said and done, one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta proves it takes hard work, and not hair pulling, to remain in the spotlight.

In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Kandi Burruss discusses returning to Season 4 in light of the recent firings of the Real Housewives of New York. When asked what to expect, she reveals, “You never know. I don’t feel too comfortable. I can’t be too comfortable.” Kandi continues, “That’s why I keep multiple things going on. In my opinion, I’ve been in the industry long enough to know that you may be hot, but as soon as you cool down, people are ready to say, ‘She fell off.’”

I don’t foresee Kandi falling off any time soon with all the business ventures she has in the works. Besides being part of the Housewives franchise, she maintains her popular radio show “Kandi Koated Nights,” owns a boutique called Tags, and has developed Bedroom Kandi, a new line of sex toys. To top it all off, Kandi is joining the likes of cast mate Kim Zolciak and getting her own spin-off on Bravo, aptly titled “Kandi Factory.” Oh, and don’t let me forget about her role as executive producer for a program on a different network…where does she find the time?

Kandi admits, “I have multiple hustles. I’m always thinking about what’s my next move.” However, her fans shouldn’t worry that she’ll be jumping off the housewives ship any time soon. She says, “I want them to keep me as part of the show.”

Giving fans a sneak peek at what’s to come, Kandi teases, “It’s so much drama this year. It’s not going to be like one big thing. It’s going to be multiple arguments and blowouts.” She continues, admitting, “There were times I had a couple words.” However, don’t expect to see Kandi throwing drinks, flipping tables or pulling wigs. She jokes, “That’s when you get me acting straight street.”

Getting away from the drama and closer to her roots, Kandi is also the head of Kandi Cares, a foundation created to help single parents “afford to do things for their children they might not be able to afford” without assistance. Kandi says, “I’m from a single-parent home and I am a single parent. I used to get in trouble when I wasn’t involved in extracurricular activities. The best thing to do for kids or any children is to get them in the most activities as possible.”

I honestly don’t know how this woman does it all…especially when you know Kim is likely still using her for contacts, studio time, and dance hits! Kandi and the rest of the Atlanta ladies return to Bravo at 9pm ET on Sunday, November 6.

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA? WHICH LADIES ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING?

Is she or isn’t she?

A new report claims Marlo Hampton, who was supposed to be the new wife on the block for Real Housewives of Atlanta is actually not going to make the cut!

StraightFromTheA blog is reporting that, while Marlo was originally slated to join as the seventh housewife, she has now been relegated to the “side-kick” role ala Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

This is possibly verified by the fact that Marlo was not included in any of the official Bravo promotional pictures or write-ups for the new season. And Phaedra Parks stated in a recent interview: “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife.”

The reason Marlo got downgraded? Apparently not only did she lie about her affiliation with supposed fiancé Charles Grant, she also has a pretty shady and violent criminal past! (oh no – Danielle 2.0!). Also she was supposed to bring the catfights with NeNe Leakes, but instead the two formed a friendship! A Bravo no-no!

Marlo’s criminal past is quite extensive, resulting in seven arrests, including a couple for aggravated assault and another for check fraud from her days living in Florida. Seriously! Sources say Bravo is claiming they did not know about her lengthy violent criminal history and when they were alerted to it through the blogosphere, were forced to reconsider adding her to the cast permanently to avoid being held responsible for any of her untoward (re: possibly illegal) behaviors! Hey, they’ve already got enough of that on their hands!

I find it very hard to believe that Bravo would not thoroughly and exhaustively background check their cast members – and I believe they do conduct those checks and then cast for maximum drama. I mean, you get a background check to work at Target!

In addition the number one reason Marlo was added to the cast was to create controversy with NeNe as a result of her relationship with Charles. Well, allegedly not only were Marlo and Charles never engaged and Charles refused to be implicated in her schemes; Nene KNEW their relationship was a fraud all along!

In fact, Marlo and NeNe allegedly pulled a fast one and buddied up against other ladies on the cast (although the recent trailer for the season shows them getting into plenty of disputes!) and Marlo also formed friendships with Phaedra and Cynthia Bailey in the hopes the network would keep her on anyways.

StraightFromTheA, who cites their source as “highly credible,” is also claiming that Marlo “didn’t have ANY of the qualifications that Bravo requests for inclusion on the show, i.e. married, divorced or in a long-term relationship with a baller/well-to-do mate, career, kids,” so Bravo simply lost interest in what she could bring to the show long-term. Um… chaos? But I guess with NeNe and Phaedra they’ve already got enough of that!

Marlo’s numerous mugshots are featured below.

Do you think there is truth to the rumor that Marlo will not be included in the cast or just an attempt to create buzz for the new season? Thoughts on Marlos’ background and supposed faux-gagement to Charles Grant?

With the Real Housewives of Atlanta almost upon us, the ladies are out in full-force to promote the show and the dramz! A trailer for show promises tons of bickering, bitchiness, and over-the-top crazy – along with parties galore!

Phaedra Parks tells the Rumor Fix of the new season, “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” not giving away anything about the introduction of Marlo Hampton.

Everybody knows that Phaedra and NeNe Leakes don’t get along and Phaedra reassures us that the feud continues! As for NeNe’s acrimonious appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra reveals she is largely unimpressed by her co-star’s behavior! “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so is Lil John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”

Phaedra also takes a jab at Kandi Burruss in response to some totally true comments she made about Phaedra’s baby-shower last season! “I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower,” Phaedra snips. “It is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”

In other RHOA news, Kim Zolciak is moving full speed ahead with her wedding plans to NFL fiance Kroy Biermann before he changes his mind just days after announcing her engagement on twitter!

In fact TMZ obtained Kim’s wedding invitation (she’s slated to tie the knot on 11/11/11) and it appears Kim, 33, believes she is a mega A-list celebrity!

The reason? Kim, whose wedding is being filmed by Bravo for her new spin-off, is banning her guests from bringing cameras or even cell phones! “In order to protect our privacy on our special day, no cameras or cell phones will be allowed on property. A photo ID will be required for all guests upon entry,” reads the invitation. PHOTOS of Kim’s invitation is below!

And finally, Cynthia Bailey also promises “a lot of drama,” as she discloses there will be “tensions going on with a lot of the girls,” and in “[her] storyline especially.” And she lets us know that the unrest between her sister and husband, Peter Thomas is still going strong. Hey, she has to bring the chaos if she expects to stick around!

As for the ladies’ trip to Africa, rest assured it will be over the top! “Africa will never, ever, ever be the same,” Cynthia exclaims!

While Cynthia’s storyline will focus on the development of her new business, a modeling school, she guarantees viewers will get to see a “different” side of her from last season’s peace-keeper now that she’s learned the ropes of Reality TV 101: Bring the cray-cray! “I get a lot of payback this time,” she hints. I wonder if that means her friendship with NeNe has some issues?!

In case you haven’t seen all the Bravo ads, Season Four of RHOA premieres November 6th at 10/9c.

Thoughts on Phaedra’s comments about NeNe’s appearance on Celebrity Apprentice? Harsh or true? Is Kim delusional with her wedding invites?

Big Poppa who? It’s official! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is finally engaged!

Kim confirmed on her twitter page that she will be tying the knot with NFL beau/baby daddy Kroy Biermann!

“I am happy announce that YES @biermann71 and I are engaged! I’m on a cloud and so blessed!!” tweeted Kim. She later added: “Thank u ALL so much 4 the Congrats on our engagement I have never been happier @biermann71 has made me smile from day 1! Appreciate the ♥!”

Kim, 33, and Kroy, 26, who plays for the Atlanta Falcons, have been together for over 18 months. The two met during the filming of the RHOA last year.

Kroy and Kim welcomed their first child together — a son back in June. Kim has two daughters from previous relationships.

Following the engagement announcement, Kim also tweeted a photo of herself and Kroy with popular wedding planner Colin Cowie. That pic is below as well as some other recent pictures of Kim from the last week!

Filming on the upcoming 4th season of the RHOA is in its last days so it’s likely Kim’s engagement will be a part of the season!

Real Housewives of Atlanta is starting soon and the drama is unfolding well before the season premieres!

Apparently, soon to be former housewife, Kim Zolciak has fired her long-time assistant and close friend, Sweetie Hughes!

Poor Sweetie has been the victim of not just Kim’s crazy, but also NeNe Leakes’ and radio host Rickey Smiley’s when he started a “Free Sweetie” campaign after the infamous final NeNe vs. Kim blow-out last season! Sweetie claimed the effort ruined her life, although she does communicate with Smiley via Twitter, and defended Kim’s treatment of her. Well, now it seems that Sweetie has been set free!

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE RHOA DRAMATIC SEASON 4 TRAILER!

According to Kim’s daughter Brielle who was questioned via Formspring about Sweetie not living with Kim in the family’s new house; the long-suffering and probably abused assistant was “fiiredd”!

When pushed for more information, Brielle responded “I really don’t want to talk about it” and simply stating: “long story” when asked what happened. She also admitted their family no longer talks to Sweetie! No information about when Sweetie was actually let go, but as of late-July she was still working for Kim.

As for Sweetie she has given no statement on the situation, but she did wish Kim’s younger daughter Arianna a happy birthday via Twitter.

Sweetie is definitely appearing in this seasons RHOA, so hopefully we will get to the bottom of the drama!

In other interesting RHOA news, the almost-divorced, NeNe is now a restaurant owner! NeNe Tweeted that she is opening a Famous Famiglia restaurant in the Sacramento International Airport of all places. The pizza depot is slated to open THIS WEEK on Oct 6th. A photo of the new outpost is below – it’s super classy. Four Michelin stars!

As to why she suddenly decided to go into the Italian Fast Food restaurant industry, perhaps NeNe has been hanging out with Teresa Giudice or something…

Are you surprised Kim fired Sweetie? Do you believe it’s final or just a fight between the two ladies? Are you as shocked as I am that NeNe has gone into the pizza business? Would you eat there?
