Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I so forgot how deliciously shade-full and snarky these ladies are. Of course there was also Krayonce… who is just as kraysane as always!
Everyone has had a lot going on since last season. NeNe Leakes re-married Gregg, as we know, and is now like Veruca Salt in a chocolate factory, opening all her wedding presents. Once such wedding present is a $400 Hermes plate from Teresa Giudice. Teresa needs to ask for that plate back. #NotARichBitch
NeNe is ripping through the wrapping paper going 'For meeeeeee….?!' when Gregg reminds her it's actually "for we". Apparently not – it's NeNe's world and we're all just living in it. <Snaps>
The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are coming back with a vengeance, and it appears from the previews for the upcoming season that Cynthia Bailey and husband Peter Thomas are once again facing financial hardships as their new bar is facing foreclosure. It's very reminiscent of the couple's Uptown restaurant that causes a major strain on their relationship.
This time around, Cynthia is trying to face the situation with a cool head and a plan of action. Speaking to Radar Online, Cynthia reveals, “When Peter told me about the issues we were having at Bar One, I immediately felt deja vu: ‘Here we go. We’re back to Uptown.' Financial issues are just huge in a new marriage. We were struggling even to get married and then once I finally feel like I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I got hit with the bomb.”
Cynthia continues, “That was devastating because I’m not comfortable when things are going crazy. I like to have a plan and I like the plan to work. I don’t want to do all those steps and then it just backfires and we’re back to square one.”
You know who needs to stop talking for a little bit? Wendy Williams, In fact, I feel kind of badly talking about her and giving her more attention, but her latest shenanigans need to be addressed. Domestic violence knows no boundaries, be it social, economic, or age, and we're all often guilty of blaming the victim…or doubting their recollection of events. I'm not saying that every woman who has claimed to be abused actually was, but on the flip side, do I want to be the one who makes that call? No. If someone's life is so sad that they feel the need to make false accusations, they don't need my judgment.
That said, just because someone is a person we like to snark on or seems generally horrible to be around, doesn't mean that they deserve to have someone put their hands on them. We all love to hate the often violent Evelyn Lozada, but her attitude doesn't warrant her ex-husband's behavior towards her any more than we excuse her behavior towards past co-stars. Sorry, that was a lot to get off my chest, but with the recent news of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer suffering abuse at the hand of her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos, Wendy Williams has felt the need to put in her two cents…and to her, Camille's story sounds "sketchy." Geez.
Melissa Gorga book signing events for 'Love Italian Style' are still going on all over New York and New Jersey. Melissa and her blonde hair hit up New York for some promotion on Sunday.
Joe Gorga tagged along this weekend for Melissa's signing at The Coral House in Baldwin, New York. Melissa not only posed for pictures with fans, she also had a visit from Jay Gotti (upcoming season of Real World San Francisco) and Jenna Russo (Bad Girls Club Vegas?).
Despite the controversy surrounding her book, Melissa continues to defend it as a loving tome about a happy marriage. One of her followers shared this line from the book: "I told him if he was going to build me a house, I was going to build him a home", and Melissa added to it: "#LoveItalianStyle if you read, it's a book filled w/love!"

Kandi dished about her lawsuit with Kim Zolciak and her engagement to Todd Tucker. Kenya also chimed in about her landlord lawsuit, her "maybe" engagement, plastic surgery, how much money she made on "Gone with the Wind Fabulous" and so much more!
Andy starts off reading a Tweet that NeNe Leakes responded to during tonight's airing of RHOA:.
Kenya sniped back, "I want a career that happens over time, not just one season." (referring to Nene's show The New Normal only going one season).
We've heard there's been all kinds of drama surrounding the casting this season, including allegations that NeNe Leakes accidentally assaulted producer Carlos King in the midst of a scuffle with former "bridemaid" (who does not understand the definition of the word "maid") Marlo Hampton.
NeNe is also apparently feuding with Kenya Moore, and if anyone noticed Walter Jackson attending herI Dream Of NeNe wedding, while Kenya was conveniently absent, I'd say that tension is real! The fact that Bravo is reportedly STILL FILMING and has not released the promo photos seems to confirm the insanity.
Also confirming the cray-cray is Phaedra Parks. "As a group, there's always some contention among us," Phaedra reveals to TV Guide. "But this year, unlike any other, each lady is also dealing with her own personal things."
Lenny and Lisa Hochstein threw their 7th annual Halloween Ball, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we have the photos for you!
Several of Lisa'sReal Housewives of Miami co-stars made an appearance at the party on Friday night, but only Marysol Patton opted to dress up for the event – going as a school girl. Lea Black and Karent Sierra both posed for pictures with Lisa, but both wore simple all black ensembles. No slutty costumes for those two!
Lisa and Lenny went all out with some creepy and bloody displays around their mansion, as well as entertaining several dozen interesting guests….
No word yet on how much money they raised for the charity.
