One of the perks of being a Real Housewife is undoubtedly the non-stop product opportunities. A Housewife's job is never just a Housewife as she hawks everything from modeling schools, to tasers, to spinoff plots, to handbag/hair lines/wines, etc.
Cynthia Bailey has been cashing in on Real Housewives of Atlanta fame with the opening of The Bailey Agency and now with a hair care line and a wine. Talking to The Huffington Post, Cynthia reveals the secrets of leveraging the Housewife Hustle.
"I definitely have benefited from the exposure, launching my business on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but you do [have to be prepared]," Cynthia admits. "The main thing is don’t overwhelm yourself. Figure out exactly what it is that you want to do, stay focused on that one thing and make that successful. Then you can add things later."
While Kandi is suing her former friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star over the song Don't Be Tardy for the Party, Kim may be having the last laugh over whose spin-off is garnering the most attention. Viewers were right on time for the premiere of season two of Kim's Don't Be Tardy show, while last week no one seemed to want to party atThe Kandi Factory. I wonder how Kim will feel to learn that this week she actually gave her new nemesis' show a boost?
It was only a matter of time before the FOURTH Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff was announced!NeNe Leakes answered our prayers on twitter today when she confirmed her wedding spinoff I Dream Of NeNe: The Wedding was coming soon.
NeNe will re-marryGregg Leakes on TV as predicted. No word if this is a permanent relocation to her own show or she will be continuing with RHOA. NeNe already renewed her contract for season 6.
As suspected it appears there is more than meets the eye. Many also asked if these were half-sisters from her mother or father's side, but apparently it's NeNe's mom. And possibly they aren't half-sisters at all but full sisters! Goodness I'm confused. Anyway, here's the latest.
One of NeNe's sisters, Kendle, hopped on her personal Facebook page following the reunion and threatened to expose the real reasons she and NeNe have not spoken in 8 years. NeNe said her sisters want a relationship with her now, and rumors have been abound that she is reconciling with them for a Bravo wedding special.
NeNe accused Phaedra of being in cahoots with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield, with Phaedra seeming like the mastermind because she had a previous acquaintanceship with NeNe's sisters. NeNe was furious and Phaedra was oddly demure, which seemed like an omission of guilt. I've heard gossip about this situation for two years now and I have my own opinions (OPINIONS, people) which I'll share below, but let's hear some alleged behind-the-scene scoops on what went on!
Reality Tea readers didn't seem too impressed when Married to Medicinedebuted to record breaking numbers. Many comments read like "really?" and "this show sucks" and "the ratings will drop." Um. Not so much.
I, too, expected the ratings to drop. In reality, however, Married to Medicine's ratings are going up! This past week, the much anticipated brawl between two cast members brought in 2.66 million viewers, a series high.
Yesterday was part 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. This segment was all about Wigs Zolciak. And if I had a dollar for all the Kimscuses she makes, I could buy me one of them foreclosed dream homes everyone is talking about!
Phaedra Parks is apparently big news this season. We spent a ton of time running down her shenanigans and she seemed relatively composed for all the heat she took. It's clear the only person Phaedra has extreme distaste for is Kenya Moore.
Things begin with a spotlight on NeNe Leakes, cause just in case you didn't know, she has AAAA-RIVED! Andy Cohen wonders if NeNe plays favorites and takes sides, case in point she seemed to dislike Phaedra andKandi Burruss almost instantly. NeNe claims she never does that, Kandi reminds her that actually she does! We all know she does. NeNe likes people she can control and manipulate. And if it's apparent they don't need her or aren't going to bow down to her greatness, she goes all sour on them. So there's no need for her to even bother denying that!
Real Housewives of Atlanta is coming to a close soon (whatever will we do with our Sunday nights?) but the drama that occurred this season is anything but quiet.
Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes have had an ongoing feud for seasons. And one that no one really understands. Sometimes they seem to get along fine and then all of the sudden they don't like each other? Huh? NeNe has blamed Kandi being a "hater" for the issues, but Kandi seems to hint that it's manufactured drama for the show!
"We don't really have anything to say to each other," Kandi told The Hollywood Reporter of NeNe. "We really don't talk to each other outside of things we're doing for the show. Like I don't really have a problem with her for real. And I don't think she really has a problem with me. But every time I turn around she has something smart to say to me so I just give her the same energy she gives me."
