I know a lot of you thought that NeNe's spinoff premiere was boring, but I enjoyed it, in all of its mellow glory! Maybe I'm just burned out on rehashed drama this week, but I felt it was a nice change of pace. I may be in the minority, but NeNe cracks me up and I'm not ashamed to admit it (and I love her blonde hair, dammit, no matter what y'all say!). And who knew Gregg had so many neurotic little issues?
Also doing well with its debut last night was The New Atlanta, scoring just a hair over 1 million viewers. I tuned in for this one and liked the first half, but was turned off that they leapt right into dinner drama (a favorite formula for Bravo) way too soon! Let us get to know the cast before we're weave pullin' and table flippin', okay?
TELL US – WILL YOU TUNE IN FOR I DREAM OF NENE AND THE NEW ATLANTA NEXT WEEK?
Unfortunately it seems Lisa's no. 1 ally, Brandi Glanville, has turned on her by teaming up with her other former BFF, Kyle Richards. And Lisa is truly shocked by the betrayal!
Lisa “can’t believe how Brandi has betrayed their friendship and trust," a source tells Radar Online. At the root of the issue is Brandi promoting a story that Lisa started a rumor that Mauricio was cheating on Kyle.
Brandi, allegedly at Lisa's behest, confronted Kyle about the allegation and then as the season progressed decided she wanted to do the right thing and confessed to Kyle that Lisa was allegedly behind the rumors!
"After Brandi tried to pin the blame on Lisa for confronting fellow housewife Kyle about allegations her husband had cheated on her, it was the end of their once very close friendship,” a show insider reveals.
Kody Brown's hair had almost as many watchers! Sisters Wives drew 2.3 million viewers. Seriously people… the flowing locks. The delusion – it's irresistible! The other TLC polygamous drama My 5 Wives also attracted a fairly big draw. 1.8 million people wanted to see the man that beat Kody in the kreepy department by marrying cousins!

Sorry, Tamra Barney, but Andy Cohen has a favorite housewife! Of course, it's Lisa Vanderpump, but I digress. NeNeLeakes is a close second, and she's remarrying ex-husband Gregg which is a story line made in Bravo heaven. It shouldn't come as a surprise that NeNe's wedding spin-off, I Dream Of NeNe, gets nearly a full season of episodes as opposed to a measly three.
To bring everyone up to speed as to why NeNe is re-marrying Gregg, NeNe must spend the first part of the show explaining why she "divorced his ass." Their fifteen year marriage, split, and rekindled romance is described in less than a minute. NeNe is getting adjusted to being back in Atlanta after an extended period of time in Los Angeles. She finds her original wedding program and dress, and NeNe and Gregg reminisce over their first walk down the aisle with their wedding video.
NeNe shares that forgiving Gregg's past behavior is a lot easier than forgetting it. She assures viewers that she wants everything to be different from the first go-round, and she isn't looking at this as a new wedding, but a new marriage. That's a plus! The couple spends time in Athens on their journey down memory lane, and they meet NeNe's aunt and godmother for lunch. NeNe's godmother reminds Gregg of a talk they had a year ago when he promised he'd get his family back.
It's hard being Kim Kardashian, y'all. Not only is her entire being under new management (thanks, Yeezy!) with a new style and a new PR machine, she's also trying to lose her North West baby weight and figure out who will be the godparents for her daughter with Kanye. It's a lot of pressure for Kim, especially given that she's still in the throws of making a monumental life decision…should she get bangs again?
The IB Times dishes on what Kim's trainer has to say. Speaking on Kim's much anticipated weight loss (and by anticipated, I mean, who cares?), Tracy Anderson shares, "Kim is taking as much time as she wants to just be with the baby. She's not even concerned with working out. Kim is amazing as a mom, she's so connected. I knew when I was training her she would be a great mom. She was concerned with all the right things," adding, "Little North is beautiful, she's got the most beautiful skin."
