You know, sometimes it’s reassuring to see a reality star not losing touch with the actual real world. It doesn’t seem to happen a lot! Often, I find that true movie stars and entertainers seem more down-to-earth than people whose only claim to fame is that drama–and cameras–follow them everywhere! That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone saw, say Heidi MontagTamra JudgeRamona Singer Troy Landry (yeah, we’ll go with him. I love Swamp People) hitting up his local target. Usually, a reality star doing what would be normal daily routines for the rest of us seems about as odd as seeing Lisa Vanderpump shopping at a mall.
Given her larger than life persona and need to discuss her bank account and her brand at every turn, it makes me happy to see Real Housewives of Atlanta’sNeNe Leakes hitting up her local TJ Maxx for some fashionable bargains. My friends all know my obsession with all things reality, so I often get texts or e-mails with the news of reality celebrity sighting (I’m saving my recent run-in with Southern Charm’sShep Rose for another day) ranging from “I think I was just cut off in traffic by Whitney Sudler-Smith’s mom Patricia…I know because there was a giant Hermes in the back window” to “Here’s a picture of Teen Mom’sKieffer Delp’s dilapidated car in the parking lot of the Brunswick County Courthouse” which may have been my favorite until now.
And furthermore, if you are so upset that people are “unjustly” calling you a whore, and you don’t want women resorting to those insults, why is that the only insult you’re ever resorting to? These are real questions for Claudia, who calls herself a journalist. I’m investigating and I want answers.
It seems to me that it should be Porsha who is upset with Claudia, I mean I’d be pretty pissed if someone, for basically no reason, called me a prostitute on national television and then didn’t even have the proof to back it up. That’s some slanderous libelous hearsay and I am misusing legal jargon cause I got my law degree from the same $19.99 internet correspondence course that Phaedra Parks did. The one where long-term thinking and recidivism rates are like huuuuhhhh? The same legal school where they don’t teach you that marrying an ex-con exponentially increases the likelihood that you’ll be married to a prisoner at some point. What happens on air mattresses in the ghetto at 2 am renders one dumb and useless, I suppose!
Demetria reveals it was never her intention to get into with Phaedra Parks, but Phaedra started it by questioning her career, her relationship, and being rude – which obviously spiraled into a major argument during a recent cast trip to Puerto Rico. Likewise Claudia never intended to have issues with NeNe Leakes!
“When I started my conversation with Phaedra it was not supposed to go that far,” Demetria insists. “They were all on the other side of the table being mad disrespectful. I felt shade and I wanted to address it.”
“It’s nonsense!” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star scoffed. “NeNe, from day one, has always been the biggest agitator on our show – she’s slandered everyone.” Kenya described how NeNe has been throwing away the ‘whore’ word for seasons, and recently made fun of Claudia Jordan‘s ladyparts.
Since Brandi Glanville, Ian Ziering, Kenya Moore and Johnny Damon were in NYC to do interviews on the Today show yesterday morning, Donald Trump threw them a “bloodbath” Celebrity Apprentice party at Trump Tower last night. Is it weird to throw a party for the four people you kicked to the curb? Especially when two of the fired contestants can hardly stand to be in the same room?
At the event last night Kenyaspoke to E! news about the showdown with Vivica A. Fox, “If you know Vivica, you know that’s who she really is. I think she’s proud of it, so it’s not like I’m saying something that isn’t the truth. She really prides herself on being ghetto. You heard her say she’s ghetto fabulous. I think in her generation, it was cool to say those types of things or brag about somebody being physically attacked like they deserved it, it’s embarrassing behavior.” She hopes young viewers of the show know that’s not the way to behave. She also says what we saw on TV was mild and tame. Kenya says “I was just afraid she was going to try to fight someone. I’ve seen her blow up at Kate, just seen her display some really intensive anger.”

NeNe Leakes never hesitates to remind us that she is The ORIGINAL Krispy WiggedReal Housewife Of Atlanta and she has seen (and survived it all) but with this season being the most vitriolic and upsetting yet, rumor has it NeNe is on her way out of the series that made her famous.
“I’ve never felt I needed to do anything but be me,” NeNe brags. “And I simply remained me throughout every season. I’ve outlived people – and I’ve even outlived executive producers! Shade, honey – catch it!”
So things seem to be twirling together when it comes to Kenya Moore’s biopic sitcom pilot Life Twirls On. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is rivaling co-star and nemesis NeNe Leakes when it comes to acting as a quadruple threat. She’s singing, acting, directing, and being Gone with the Wind Fabulous…it’s got to be exhausting!
Back in the fall, Kenya announced that she was directing, producing, and acting in a sitcom pilot that she also wrote. She’s a regular Jerry Seinfeld! I don’t mean that as snark…I find Kenya to be highly entertaining, and if this show gets picked up by a network (no word on that yet), I’ll be watching for sure…and not just because it stars the original Vivian Banks!
NeNe Leakes liquidated her designer duds in a pop up closet shop! This weekend the “very rich” Real Housewives Of Atlanta star had a good ole’ fashioned yard sale which she called the “Nene Leakes Fabulous Pop Up Closet.”
Along with selling off her own designer collection in size they don’t make runway that big (according to Claudia Jordan) unless you got them coins, and pieces from her NeNe Leakes Collection for HLN and her t-shirt line.
