Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was about new beginnings and leaving the past behind. Kim and Kroy welcomed their son into the world. NeNe went on her first post-separation date. Cynthia revisited NYC and Sheree made the difficult decision to take Bob to court over child support.
Kim is frantically on her way to the OB’s office with all her essentials in tow: make-up, designer luggage, oh and a wig! She discovers she has pre-eclampsia and her doctor decides to induce her at 37 weeks. Good thing she packed her wig!! Kim’s last delivery was like a Mack truck driving through her hooha and she is super nervous. Kroy isn’t stressed out; he’s relaxed and meditative just like before a football game. Sadly, a baby isn’t anything like football!

In her Bravo blog, Camille states that Dedra was just being a good friend to her though she later adds that Dedra’s actions did make the situation worse.
“Dedra got involved even though I would never ask her or willingly put her in any position to do so. When Dedra saw everything that was going on she just wanted to help. She is my best friend. She was there for me with the situation with Taylor and has been with me through everything with my divorce and my ongoing custody battle… Dedra got emotional that night watching Taylor’s behavior towards me and thought it was unfair. That’s why she came to my defense,” wrote Camille.
Camille goes on to admit that while Dedra had good intentions, she might have made things worse. “At one point, I remember trying to ‘shush’ Dedra because the more Dedra pushed, it became more apparent that Taylor did not want to participate. It just exacerbated the situation and made it more volatile rather than being helpful. I know Dedra’s intentions were good. I know she wanted to help and was hoping that we could have some resolution… I feel bad she got into the mix, but she got emotional when Taylor made a few snide remarks and was being dismissive of my feelings,” Camille added.
Brandi Glanville also shared her two cents, especially why she decided to kick Taylor out of her party in her Bravo blog. First, Brandi reveals that Taylor came to the party anticipating drama and denies being interested in Kyle’s husband Mauricio.
Brandi writes, “Prior to the party Taylor was already talking about having Kyle as “backup.” I’m not sure what she was anticipating. If Taylor had so many reservations about seeing Camille, and knew full well that Camille was going to be at this small gathering in Malibu, she should have stayed home… Kyle immediately had to insult me, even after I complimented her marriage, by talking behind my back about my dress being slightly sheer. FYI: Kyle I had a super-hot husband for a long time too, and I was still able to take a compliment about his looks and adoration for me when one was given. In no way do I have any interest in Mauricio, or any married man for that matter.”
Brandi also reveals why she didn’t invite Dana Wilkeyand comments on Kyle’s need for attention. She continues, “I invited Kim to my party (not that i thought she would come) as a gesture of peace and a step towards starting over. However, I did not invite Dana because I just wanted to get to know the other women without all her nonsense and name dropping… So I think we were all having a good time, and my friend Linda was trying to teach us to belly dance, but then Kyle has to take over and do the splits and crawl on the ground and generally disrespect what Linda was there to do.”
As for why she decided to kick Taylor out of the party, Brandi states: “Although I didn’t know what the fight was about really at that point, I had bonded with Camille so I felt protective of her… I tried to diffuse the situation to the best of my capabilities at the time, which admittedly were not 100 percent. Someone had to leave. It was my party and Taylor was completely out of control. I wanted Camille to stay and she came with Dedra, so I asked Taylor to go before things got even more out of hand.”
And finally, Star magazine is reporting that Brandi and her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian might be heading for an ugly custody battle. The reason? Brandi, 39, is threatening to have Eddie, 38, jailed because he plans to take their sons Mason, 8, and Jake, 4, to Aspen during Christmas with his former mistress new wife LeAnn Rimes.
Brandi is reportedly claiming the trip violates their custody agreement though it “clearly states that he can’t take them out of the country without permission but can take them out of state,” according to a source. “Eddie feels she can’t be reasoned with,” adds the source.
Moving to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH airing on Bravo at 9/8c. On the 15th episode this season titled ‘A Book, a Bachelorette, and a Breakdown,’ it’s a sure bet in Las Vegas when Lisa and Taylor infiltrate Sin City for a bachelorette party.

With just three weeks until the premiere of The Bachelor season 16, ABC has released the photos of the 25 contestants vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart!
On the season opener, Ben, 29, a winemaker from Sonoma, meets his 25 potential soul mates as he begins his search for “true love.” And in a twist, Ben is taken aback on the first night when Sheryl, a sprite senior citizen, steps out of the limo and confesses she is madly in love with him. But according to the rumor mill, it appears Sheryl was simply there to introduce her granddaughter to Ben.
The ABC press release promises us some more interesting characters such as: “Erika, the young law student, informs Ben that the verdict is in and he is convicted of being sexy. Emily, the germ conscious epidemiologist, doesn’t miss a beat, quickly sanitizing both herself and Ben before grabbing the season’s first kiss. And in a questionable move, Anna decides that Ben should only get a look at her before she struts right by him and straight into the mansion. But what is her real motive? Lindzi arrives on horseback in time to intrigue Ben and capture his attention. And finally, Jenna, a New York blogger, breaking down into tears over early drama with fellow bachelorette Monica.”
The new season of The Bachelor returns to ABC on Jan. 2 (8/7c).

PoorJill Zarin. It seems she can never do anything right! Last Thursday Jill and her husband Bobby attended the annual Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces (FIDF) fundraising gala, which is a big celeb draw. Performing at the event was the magnificent, amazing Barbra Streisand. Since Barbra doesn’t often perform live and Barbra is amazing (Memories, anyone? “The Way We Were”?) Jill taped a little bit of the concert and in her thrall posted it on YouTube. BIG MISTAKE. Huge.
Well, according to RadarOnline, Barbra‘s attorneys found out about the video and immediately demanded the former Real Housewives of New York super villainess take it down or risk getting sued!
Jill, being scared of a big A-List real celeb, immediately obliged and informed her Twitter followers that their front row glimpse of the glorious Babs was no longer available with this Tweet: “Someone from Barbra streisands company just called my store to tell me to take down my YouTube video or they will sue me. Is that nuts? Sorry guys. I took it down!” Hey, I’d be scared too, Ms. Streisand will cut you.
Things should have ended there but gossip gangster Rob Shuter got involved and despite claims that Rob is a Jill fan, he called her out, Tweeting: “Barbra Streisand threatens to sue ex #RHONY @jillzarin for posting YouTube video of private concert! Not everyone wants to live on camera.”
Jill retaliated, Tweeting to Rob: “It was a 30 second clip of her on a big screen . Lets not get excited. Like video of tv screen. 30 seconds?” Jill also accused Rob of threatening her employees. When one drama queen meets another, madness ensues — see the Twitter chain below.
In order to make nicey-nice with the Barbra, Jill tweeted that her December Newsletter was going to include an apology. Perhaps she can send Babs some Skweeze Couture as an apology gift.
I feel for Jill. I do think she was just genuinely excited and wanted to share her experience, I don’t think she meant to do anything offensive or illegal. Rob continued to make fun, tweeting that he was seeing Hugh Jackman tonight and wondered if he should tape it? Le sigh.
Moving on Kelly Bensimon is returning to a TV screen near you and Jill is going to tape it and put it on YouTube, illegally of course! No just kidding. Actually, Kelly will be part of a new HGTV show called Hollywood at Home. I’m guessing this was taped before she was fired??
Kelly’s NYC apartment will be featured in an upcoming episode which tours the living quarters of the famous (or semi-famous, apparently). Frankly, whether you like Kelly or not her apartment looks pretty amazing. A glimpse of the Cray-Cray’s apartment is below. Sometimes marrying for money pays off…
Hollywood at Home premieres on Thursday, December 22 at 8 p.m.

The trade, which occurred late Saturday, will have Lamar playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Khloe, 27, a Los Angeles native, took to her Twitter page to express her mixed emotions about the trade.
“We are all sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative,” tweeted Khloe to a fan, before adding, “I am curious as to how I am the cause for any trade? LOL Some people just say anything behind their computer screens.”
She later tweeted: “I am blessed and happy anywhere as long as I am with my family! God is great!! Blessed beyond words! I love ALL of my dolls!”
The second season of Khloe & Lamar is currently filming so it’s likely we will see this trade drama play out on the show.
In other news, the Kardashians simply refuse to quit their very transparent attempts to villainize Kris Humphries.
The latest is now a publicity stunt claim by Kim Kardashian’slackey friend/publicist Jonathan Cheban to TMZ that he was attacked by a Kris Humphries fan in New York City.
To make this story more believable, Jonathan made certain to set it up rather nicely by first telling TMZ on Friday that he hired extra security because he was being threatened by fans of Kris.
According to Jonathan, the threats began after he threatened to sue Kris for $5 million for apparently calling him “gay” on an upcoming episode of E!’s Kourtney and Kim Take New York. It allegedly led to some Kris “fanatics” threatening Jonathan, who insists he is far from being “gay.”
Last month, camp Kardashian accused Kris of “bullying” Jonathan. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shared a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.” But uh isn’t it a tad homophobic to sue someone for calling you gay???
Fast forward to Sunday (the same day a new episode of Kimmie’s show was set to air on E!) and a photo of Jonathan being attacked with flour by an alleged Kris fan made its way onto TMZ. Sources close to the very heterosexual Jonathan insist it was done by a Kris fan because the flour attacker yelled, “This is for Kris Humphries!” before dousing him with flour.
TMZ adds that the cops were, however, unable to locate the attacker, who was able to get to Jonathan despite the so called extra security he hired. Even better, the attacker managed to mysteriously predict the time and place Jonathan, arguably a Z-list celebrity, would be!
Even more interesting, the photo, which was sent to TMZ did NOT come from a paparazzi agency, meaning it was submitted to TMZ by Jonathan an individual.
Despite the obviously ridic publicity stunt, a rep for Kris tells TMZ, Kris “would never condone hateful and unacceptable behavior like that to anyone, in any situation.”
The good news is in reading the TMZ comments, it appears majority of the readers are NOT buying the story and believe it was all a set up. Smart readers I tell ya! And since when does Kris Humphries have “fanatics”?
The picture of the “flour attack” is below as well as two photos of Kim, and her very authentic and not surgically enhanced at all butt, with Jonathan from 2009!

Without a doubt, the ladies of Love & Hip Hop definitely know how to turn up the heat where drama is concerned. Lately, it’s been a clash of the musical egos between the former First Lady of 50 Cent’s G Unit Olivia Longott and Latin music sensation and model Somaya Reece.
In a recent VH1 blog, Olivia admits, “I took a lot of heat [on a past episode] because of my attitude toward Somaya. What people need to understand: I’ve made bad decisions in my career, but what I will say is that someone saw the talent in me. Say what you wanna, that I didn’t blow up, that I’m wack, or love me, but the fact is, I was signed to Clive Davis as the first act on J Records, and also traveled the world with 50.” That’s a pretty decent resume, I’d say.
“But don’t get it twisted,” she continues. “I know I’m starting over, doing it alone, but I won’t ever say Somaya and I are on the same level, because I don’t think she has much talent. That’s not hate, I’m allowed to have my opinion.” Opinions, hate… what’s the difference on these shows?
While Olivia applauds her cast mate’s willingness to work she believes the only thing Somaya has in her favor is the show itself. She reveals, “Her work ethic is insane and of course a TV show kinda evens [the] playing field, but reality is, if Love & Hip Hop didn’t exist, this conversation wouldn’t ever come up, so I get that too. Not too mention the lies she’s told on my manager, but hey, that’s for another day…” Mee and Yow!
And if one series isn’t enough, it looks like Love & Hip Hop may be getting its own spin-off on VH1, an insider tells Sister2Sister. Because the show is doing so well, the network is hoping to double the popularity with a similar show based in Atlanta and starring rapper Diamond.
The same source reveals that fellow Atlanta rapper Rasheeda and Rici, who served as Yung Joc’s former assistant are also being approached about potentially starring in the series. While nothing is set in stone, it is rumored that how Diamond will be portrayed is a source of contention. While Diamond’s publicist wants her to appear polished on the show, producers are calling for the rapper to totally be herself while the cameras are rolling. If the producers get their way, “Diamond would definitely be the Chrissy [Lampkin]” of the spin-off, the insider promises.
Regardless whether the two sides can come to an agreement, one thing is for certain, says the source. “New York don’t have nothing on Atlanta.”

The 19th season of the Amazing Race ended last night as new winners were crowned following a somewhat dramatic season.
In the end, engaged couple Ernie Halvorsenand Cindy Chiangcame out victorious, crossing the finish line at Atlanta’s historic Swan House to take home the $1 million prize.
Ernie and Cindy’s win was a bit surprising as the couple had spent most of the season being stuck in second place. Front runners, Jeremy Cline andSandy Draghi, who actually started the race in first place ended up coming in second.
Jeremy and Sandy lost their lead in the competition when their clue instructed them to head to a residence once known as “The Dump.” Failing to do their own research, the duo simply relied on a guy in a truck who sent them to the wrong location — a furniture store called “The Dump.” On the other hand, Ernie and Cindy found the right location when they arrived at “The Dump” — an apartment in which “Gone with the Wind” was written.
Project manager Ernie, 29, and his fiancée Cindy, 30, a brand manager, won the competition following a journey that took them through 40,000 miles, four continents, 10 countries and 20 cities.
“This has been the best premarital counseling that you could ever get,” said Cindy following the win. “I can’t think of anything better in life than to have a husband that could be so supportive and caring even when I’m at my low.”
The couple revealed they plan on using the $1 million prize to start a charity to help those in need around the world. Former NFL player Marcus Pollardand his wife Amanicame in third.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE AMAZING RACE FINALE & SEASON? DID ERNIE AND CINDY DESERVE TO WIN?
Sheree starts out by defending herself against accusations that her luxury dream house is a ruse created by the Bravomeisters for stroyline purposes. Unfortunately for Sheree, Atlanta blogger Tamara Tattles has been hot on her tail and revealing the truth about what goes on at the faux-chateau. After the blog revealed Andrew, the builder who’s been featured on the show, isn’t even a licensed contractor, Sheree is claiming she never intended for him to build her ballroom/skating rink anyways!
“The home building process requires a huge amount patience, planning, meetings, and self-control. People warned me that building a new home would be not only a huge headache but a slow detailed process, because contractors like to move at their own pace,” Sheree writes.
“To clear things up, Andrew is not my builder. He is someone that did some work for me in my clothing boutique years ago. We ran into each other when I began this project. I hired him to oversee the day to day progress when I am out of reach. Another story that I will go into later!” Uh huh… suuuure.
Now onto the dirt concerning NeNe, Sheree is not backing down and refers to NeNe as “delirious!” That’s a bit rich considering the source, but you know not exactly untrue.
“NeNe made a statement that I hit below the belt. This woman is delirious. Remember, I have known her untruths, her misleading behavior, and evil ways for quite a long time and have kept them quiet. I personally would have never gone there had she not started in with me,” Sheree insists.
“I do agree that once you go there, you open up a whole new can of worms. I don’t think she want those worms let out. I didn’t start it, I only finished. The hateful, mean-spirited way she reacted took it way past any possibility of reconciliation in the future.” Oooohhh… is that a promise or a threat from the former Mrs. Whitfield?
In response to Cynthia’s comments about her financial issues, (if you remember Cynthia wrote that the only thing she knows about Sheree is that she lost a house, a car, and a man), Sheree thinks Cynthia needs a little bit of educating!
“I have never, ever lost a house, nor was I repeatedly evicted from several houses (that was your girl),” Sheree seethes! “I did have a car that was paid in full seized which probably cost the amount of your home. Please don’t get that confused with a repossession (again that was your girl).” Sheree is obviously less embarrassed that her car was seized after she failed to pay her lawyer fees following a failed attempt to alter her divorce agreement so she could get a larger settlement.
“However, luckily for me,” Sheree continues, “I had another car I could fall back on. Don’t you and Peter share a car? I would hate to have to drop someone off or wait for someone to be done to move forward with their day. I love my independence and my freedom to move about, thank God for my other car.”
As for Cynthia’s comments that she “lost a man” Sheree is not taking that lightly and wants us to know the man actually lost her! “Honey, you are too old to speak on things you have no clue about or were not even around at the time to know the truth about. Stop listening to the haters,” Sheree slams!
“Now fortunately for me, I know my self-worth! I know what I deserve and what I will and will not put up with. And because of this, I left a man! Let’s get it straight. I decided to seek a divorce because I refuse to be in an unhealthy relationship. I believe in myself, my kids, and our happiness, and we deserved much better. Besides, being in an unhealthy relationship can lead to really dark eye circles, large bags, balding, and not to mention extreme low self-esteem. Honey, I don’t have time for any of that!”
Well, there you have it Sheree is perfect and impervious to any flaw! Sheree ends with this quote: ” ‘Your reputation is a reflection of who people THINK you are, but your character is a representation of who you TRULY are…’ ” So why is she pretending to be building a huge mansion and living the lifestyle of someone very rich if she doesn’t care about her reputation?
Anyways, moving on Cynthia despite taking a lot of flack about the less than stellar “preview” of Bar One featured on last week’s episode and her faux-ship with NeNe, she is defending both! In her Bravo blog, titled “Late Not Hate,” Cynthia reveals that she “loves” NeNe and that Bar One is a thriving business.
Cynthia insists Bar One is “doing great” despite some less than stellar Yelp reviews and that contrary to what her co-stars might think Bar One is not the ghetto. “Bar One is located in the Grant Park area in Atlanta,” Cynthia explains. “When did Grant Park become the hood? Oh, when Bar One opened up there of course.” Cynthia also wants us to know a bevy of celebrities have visited the venue, such as: Ludacris, Jill Scott, Tami Roman and many more — including Sheree (yes, Cynthia graciously included her in the celebrity list…).
And as for Phaedra Parks‘ comments referring to her husband Peter Thomas as a “hustler” and a “pimp,” Cynthia is kind of flattered! “I think this was actually meant to be a compliment,” she writes. “So I’m going to let this one slide. Thank you, I guess.”
Finally, Cynthia reacts to everyone’s comments that she is NeNe’s puppy and again she insists they are merely friends — true friends — and she didn’t particularly care that NeNe was late! “I love NeNe like a fat kid loves cake and Peter loves her too. Yes, Peter and I do love NeNe, and she loves us. We are just one big happy family, just loving each other to death.”
“I didn’t do or say anything when NeNe turned up late to Bar One. I would rather NeNe come late and show us love than be on time and hate. Who cares? Everybody is always late. What was I supposed to do? Jump on her like a spider monkey and beat the crap out of her? Oh, maybe I should have poured water on her shoulder. That would have taught her a lesson.” Buuuuurn!
She fires back at Sheree’s comments that they could only afford five-minutes of the very rich and famous NeNe’s time! “NeNe only gave us five minutes because that’s all we can afford. We can’t afford NeNe for more than five minutes, but we can afford to open two businesses at the same time. Hmm… Maybe if Peter and I save up enough money, we can also afford to put skating rinks in Bar One and The Bailey Agency.”
A new episode of RHOA airs tonight and Kim Zolciak finally goes into labor, but not without her wigs! Besties NeNe and Cynthia visit NYC where she gets a little advice from mogul Russell Simmons and Sheree’s child support drama continues! A preview clip is below!
RHOA airs on Bravo at 9/10 c.
DO YOU BELIEVE SHEREE’S EXPLANATION OF CHATEAU SHEREE? IS SHE ANGRY ABOUT CYNTHIA’S COMMENTS BECAUSE THERE MIGHT BE SOME TRUTH TO THEM OR IS SHE JUST DEFENDING HERSELF? IS CYNTHIA REALLY NENE’S PUPPY OR ARE THEY TRUE FRIENDS?
