Real Housewives of Atlanta

atlanta-housewives

The Real Housewives of Atlanta have spent the past few months out of the spotlight following their highly rated dramatic 2nd season, but that is all about to change soon as their 3rd season will begin filming in the upcoming weeks.

What is clear is Kandi Burruss, the fan favorite, will definitely be returning. What is not clear is who will be getting the axe for the 3rd season. This seems to be causing some drama amongst the cast as an “insider” spilled some not so nice things about Kandi to Atlanta blogger – Sandra Rose.

According to this insider, “Kandi’s attitude has taken an abrupt 180 degree turn and she now believes she is the star of the ‘Housewives’. In fact, the closeness between Kandi and the show’s producers has the other cast members so on edge that they have drastically altered their lifestyles out of fear of being kicked off the show.”

The insider also reveals the other housewives are jealous because the producers of the show have been going to Kandi to get her input on adding a new housewife. Apparently, a lot of women are dying to get on the show as more than 30 Atlanta-based industry execs, socialites and D-list celebs have interviewed for the role of ‘housewife’ on season 3. The prospects include former Soap star Victoria Rowell, who has surprisingly expressed a desire to join the show. She is said to be the front-runner.

Also coming this third season, Kim Zolciak will be revealing her bisexuality. She has broken things off with Big Poppa and has been dating a female DJ who goes by the name of DJ Tracy Young. Things are said to be very serious between the two, and there have even been rumors of marriage. Nene Leakes is also said to be going on a crash diet, and is apparently afraid that she might be the one on the chopping block.

According to the report, no one will know who’s getting the axe until the right before the 3rd season begins filming.

Kandi also took to her twitter page to deny the claims made in the story and expressed her desire to have all her fellow cast members return to the show. -

“So i just saw that B.S. on the blog 2day about me throwing my cast mates under the bus to producers. dont believe that mess

4 the record i want @neneleakes @kimzolciak @lisawuhartwell & @iamsheree 2 all stay bcuz they make the show hot!”

Easy to see why she is the fan favorite. I believe Bravo might surprise us and actually keep all the women while adding a 6th housewife. However, I do believe if anyone will be getting the axe, it would be Lisa Wu Hartwell, while likable, she had the most boring storyline last season.

NENEuntitled

NeNe Leakes is squashing any rumors of her being cut from Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Rumors of NeNe and her frienemy Kim Zolciak have been circulating ever since unnamed sources told the New York Daily News that Bravo might drop them since they have become more demanding. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister, NeNe sets the record straight.

“This is all I can tell you—and I don’t want to talk about: Every housewife has been invited back,” NeNe revealed to S2S exclusively.

However, NeNe reveals that she has received some offers and has other options. In addition, her terms of agreement with Bravo is clear. If Bravo drops her from the show, she is free to pursue her other options but if she quits then she is out of luck until her contract expires. As far as contracts are concerned, all the housewives including DeShawn Snow signed up for several years at a time.

“They try to lock you in for a number of years,” she explained to S2S. “We all signed up for a third season when we signed on from day one. If anybody has been fired, nobody knows anything about it. We know nothing about it. I don’t know where the rumor came from.”

According to Daytime Confidential, the buzz around town is Bravo will be adding another housewife and the speculation is that former soap opera diva Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Barber-Winters on The Young and the Restless) will join the cast. While this seemed like a crazy rumor, Victoria surprisingly doesn’t deny it! She gave the following statement when asked -

“In my career as an entertainer I get solicited to do quite a number of things,” Rowell began coyly with a giggle, “whether it be to write reviews for a fellow author’s book, or participate in reality programming. The question has been posed from time to time about me joining the Housewives franchise, whether it be in Atlanta or somewhere else. As you know, I now spend a lot time in Atlanta. I know the fans would love to see me on television again, whether it be on a soap opera or as a real housewife of Atlanta. So, you know, we’ll see. I always say, never say never!”

Not sure if Victoria has seen the show or not, but she might want to consider running far far away from this very entertaining trainwreck of a show.

Kim Zolciak with DJ Tracy Young

Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has once again broken up with her still married boyfriend/fiance Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar, but the question on everyone’s minds is could there be a Big Mama in Kim’s life?

Kim recently performed at the Splash Bar in New York City. In between her performances (yes she performed more than once) Kim announced that she is “with someone” and “happier than ever”. Bravo Sr. Vice President of Programming Andy Cohen, who was also at the event, joined Kim on stage and asked her who the lucky guy was. To which Kim answered, “who said it was a man?”

This of course led others to believe she was referring to a woman. Kim was then seen spending some time giggling and cuddling backstage with the woman above, who introduced herself as DJ Tracy Young.

Apparently, DJ Tracy is also loaded. Dina Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was also at the event.

Kim Zolciak Soul TrainNene Leakes

The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return for a third season but some of the housewives may not be returning. According to a NYDailyNews report, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak have become more demanding, requesting more money from Bravo to appear on the show. Bravo on the other hand isn’t willingly to succumb to their demands and may have plans to have the two “divas” replaced.

“Bravo has been taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta women about possibly joining the show,” says the insider. “They’re trying their best to keep the process under wraps, but they’re gearing up to make a major move in the third season.”

TMZ is also reporting that part of Nene and Kim’s demands includes having Bravo pay their electric bill, demanding an upgrade in flying from coach to first class, and they also want stipends for wardrobe, hair and make-up.

According to the source, Bravo wants the other housewives - Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield and Lisa Wu to return as long as they like. “Kandi was a fan favorite last season. Her audience approval ratings were through the roof,” the insider explains. “And Sheree’s clothing line [She by Sheree] and her catch phrase, ‘Who gonna check me, boo?’ were definite standouts.”

“Things with NeNe and Kim have been intense,” says the source, “but Bravo feels the show is about the franchise as a whole and won’t let one person stop it.”

No one seems to be commenting including Bravo and reps for NeNe and Kim. I’m guessing Bravo leaked out this story as a ploy to tell Kim & Nene to get on board or else. The same thing happened right before the Real Housewives of NYC started filming, Jill Zarin allegedly wanted more money, and Bravo wasted no time casting for new housewives, threatening to replace Jill.

As the second season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta ended so has their relationship off camera. The ladies attended the Soul Train Awards in Atlanta where Kandi Burruss and Sheree Whitfield revealed that their friendships are only on screen and once the cameras stop rolling so does their “friendship”.

It’s a working relationship,” Sheree told BET.com. “We don’t hang out. I don’t wanna say it’s just for the show. We were put on the show and we were not friends so it’s something that you have to build. Am I saying that would never happen, no I’m not saying that? But right now, it’s just a working relationship.

We do not make up things for TV,” Kandi told BET. “The arguments are real, the bonds…I don’t know about the bonds. I mean, of course because we have to be around each other for the show, you know? I don’t know if we would always hang out that much.

It’s no surprise that their on camera “friendship” is almost as fake as the title “Housewives”. At least we can give the Atlanta housewives credit for being honest.

The AMA Awards aired last night and in attendance were Bravo housewives, Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi. In tow was also Slade Smiley, who accompanied his girlfriend on the red carpet.

Not sure what the correlation is between Bravo and the AMAs, but then again these ladies would attend the opening of an envelope. Gretchen and Kim both looked nice, and Kim did a rather nice job in walking that fine line between being sexy without being too revealing.

Sheree Whitfield Soul Train Awards

The buzz around the rumor mill this week was that Sheree Whitfield would be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. However Bravo is saying not so fast. A rep for Bravo confirms that no decisions whatsoever have been made about season three and the rumors are false.

Kandi Burruss also revealed that Bravo is currently negotiating with all five ladies for season three. Nene Leakes revealed earlier this year that the ladies were each paid $100,000 to film the second season. That amount should go up as the Atlanta housewives have brought in the highest ratings ever to the housewives franchise.

They averaged 2.8 million viewers per episode. You can compare that to the 1.8 million viewers the Real Housewives of Orange County received for their last episode.

In other news, Kandi Burruss celebrated the opening of her Atlanta store boutique, TAGS, last night. In attendance were her fellow housewives, Lisa Wu Hartwell and Kim Zolciak. Noticeably not in attendance were Nene and Sheree. Photographer, FreddyO reports Nene was out of town, and Sheree’s daughter had a play that night.

It is also reported that Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar was also in attendance, but did not allow any photographs of himself taken. Kim is back to sporting her “engagement ring” so it’s safe to say these two are back at it.

The autopsy result is in, and it confirms Ashley A.J. Jewel, former fiance of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss, died from a rare trait of sickle cell anemia that became fatal because of a fight he had back in October.

AJ’s death is still however being ruled as a homicide based on a report from the Fulton County medical examiner given to AJC.  “Although Mr. Jewell died of complications of his underlying natural disease conditions, [the] complications would not have occurred if he had not experienced the extreme exertion that was part of the physical altercation,” the report said. “Due to the active involvement of another person, the manner of death is classified as a homicide.”

Initially, it was believed Jewell, 35, died of blunt force trauma to the head. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office later said AJ most likely died from sickle cell, a condition he did not know he had.

Frederick Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter in the death of AJ. He is currently free on bond.
