I don't know about you, but I have a very special place in my heart for the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I feel like we've seen them change the most, and while they are every bit as dramatic as their Bravo counterparts (sometimes more), the don't seem as one dimensional as some of the other franchise's housewives.
While we wait for their return, the least I can do is makes sure you get the women in small doses. Recently, Kandi Burruss posted a vlog interview on her website where she talks about cast shake-ups and marriage break-ups. In true Kandi fashion, she makes sure that she maintains a very neutral stance on NeNe Leake's comments on the reunion about wanting out with old and in with the new as far as the ladies are concerned. She also stays very measured when asked about Porsha and Kordell Stewart's divorce.
In the video, Teresa pulls out the speech she wrote (Or did she? I know y'all love to run with the idea Tre doesn't write her own blogs! Me, I'm neutral…just trying for a little joke!), and gives her thanks to a woman she's clearly never met–awkward! Teresa flips through her many note cards and reveals that daughter Milania shares that the product "smells like poop" on an upcoming episode after she learns that no children are invited to the line's launch party. The always hilarious Milania even tells her mother she needs to change the name of the collection if she can't attend! Out of the mouths of babes!
And hey, if you already have hair products you can't part with, you could get some Milania products to use as hand cream. No, I'm not kidding. Watch after the jump!
Tonight's live episode of Big Brother 15 is going to be crazy – double eviction, jury reveal, rumored game-changer! Expect the unexpected, right?
The first eviction will send either Amanda Zuckerman, Candice Stewart, or Spencer Clawson to the jury house. That's right – jury starts this week! This is going to be a huge slap in the face to those who have made decisions based on a seven person jury. Too bad. So sad.
Then the remaining houseguests will play an entire week of Big Brother in a matter of minutes. Host Julie Chen will rush the frenzied hamsters through a head of household competition, nominations, power of veto competition and ceremony, and eviction.
The ladies are currently in the middle of filming their sixth season and a Reality Tea reader spotted Mynique cruising around Savannah, GA with NeNe Leakes and other cast mates!
Mynique is happily married to former Atlanta Falcons player Chuck Smith and allegedly replaces Kim Zolciak in the baller's wife role. Mynique apparently came to the attention of the producers through Ms. Leakes, who also reportedly introduced them to Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore!
Mynique's husband told Access Atlanta he has know NeNe for "24 years growing up in Athens" and that NeNe and Mynique, a mother of three, have been friends for 12 years. She also knows She By SheBroke from her hubby's football days. Chuck was quick to point out that Mynique isn't confirmed as a castmember just yet and hasn't "officially" joined the show.
It's time for the weekly Monday and Tuesday night ratings round up!
Once againLove & Hip Hop Atlanta dominated Monday night! 4.192 million people tuned in, which means once again the show's ratings are rising. Next week features more reunion and with news that Stevie J and Joseline are indeed going through with this whole wedding thing, I'm thinking this smells… spinoff!
Real Housewives of Orange County had its season finale this week. Featuring mama drama and Slade problems amid a wonderland of faux-snow, the ladies went out with a bang pulling in 2.386 million viewers – a big jump from last week. Next week is the reunion and the previews look, well, they look dreadfully brutal.
