This is a long one kiddos, so settle in. There's a bevy of news about the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta which is finding itself in a bit of a hot mess. We've been sitting on this and combing through the info so prepare yourself for a read-thru.
Last week Cynthia Bailey hosted some charity fitness event called The Bailey Bowl. According to FreddyO.com the event was filmed for RHOA – and all the ladies were in attendance. It's interesting that they are still filming considering the season airs in less than a month. Bravo still hasn't released the official cast photos yet, which brings us to the issue at hand…
Attending the event was also former RHOA extra Marlo Hampton, previously fired for being too scandalous and too criminally cultivated. Marlo staged a return to Bravo on NeNe Leakes wedding spinoff I Dream Of NeNe. The show has been popular and rumors are swirling that Bravo is making some last-minute cast changes to RHOA. Meaning MARLO is being re-introduced to the show.
While we were searching for an old photo we discovered just how many hilariously awful pictures these two took during the course of their twenty two years. So, we couldn't resist sharing a sampling of Kris and Bruce's pictures – the bad fashion, the changing faces, all of it! (on a side note, it seems to be around 2008/2009 when Bruce's face started to "change" the most)
So let's talk about what happened. Andy Cohen has obviously been watching a lot of old episodes of 20/20 and he put on his hard-hitting interviewer costume to ask all the really deep questions we've been obsessively tweeting him for seasons. A sign of end times? Also everyone behaved like an adult for the most part. Probably because three-fourths of the people on that stage aren't coming back next season and had nothing to lose or gain. I personally enjoy Jacqueline Laurita much better when her sequins are flying out of her seat and shimmering with rage.
Was Kathy Wakile even there? I wouldn't have even noticed her except she was rocking a low-rent version of Melissa Gorga's blackout eyes that she was sporting all season. It was so much black she looked like a panda bear. Speaking of pandas, since the government shutdown I can't watch the baby panda cam on the National Zoo website. Get it together federal government! Get it together Kathy's makeup team!
Caroline wrote, "think I'm going to make this short and sweet, because to put all my thoughts into a single blog would take forever and quite possibly turn the blog into a novel, so here goes: I have made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
Case in point? Rosie has been tapped to co-host the red carpet pre-show for the American Music Awards with none other than Lance Bass on November 24th. At last week's nominations ceremony, Rosie put in her two cents about the mounting legal woes faced by Teresa Giudice and husband (and Rosie sidekick) Juicy.
Bigger is always better, right? We all know that is the case with Mob Wive'sBig Ang! Now, the over-the-top Ang is following the lead of many reality stars before her. That's right–Big Ang has some big news of the alcoholic variety!
The Drunken Monkey owner has come out with her own line of vino. Ang's first offering treats us to a chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and prosecco. Mob Wives creator Jennifer Graziano recently tweeted a picture of wine line, sharing, "They're here!!!! Everyone stay tuned for info on where to buy!! @biggangVH1 @ManiacManagemnt."
This has been a wild, sometimes repetitive, and completely drama-filled season for the Housewives. We've seen (or at least read about) touching moments, cheating rumors, friendship rekindling, and epic brawls (but sadly only heard second hand accounts of flying sinks). We've also had a lot of off-screen drama, with the most scandalous being Teresa and Joe'sfederal indictment and the civil lawsuit brought on by the Posche 2 fight and topped off with a little book controversy.
What will season 6 bring? Andy Cohen admits that the show needs an overhaul, but who knows what that means in Andy's world. Well, let's get through season 5 first and then we'll tackle season six and all of its casting rumors!
