On Nene’s home front, things get even rockier as her son Bryson asks to come back following one of his arrests for drug possession. Meanwhile, following her fight with Dwight, Nene runs into him at a public event and attempts to talk to him using a much calmer approach. Will Dwight give Nene the time of the day? Will they be able to resolve their issues? Find out tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
Also on tonight’s episode, the other new housewife, Cynthia Bailey, will make her debut. In an interview with the HollywoodLife, Cynthia sings the praises of Nene Leakes but questions Kim Zolciak’s authenticity.
“I didn’t see it coming because she is so bigger than life, but NeNe was the most real person on the show,” she says. “I felt like she was consistent and proved herself to be a friend.” And when it comes to Kim bisexuality, Cynthia has some doubts. “She puts it out there and then doesn’t want to talk about it,” she says. “I will say for the most part I think Kim will do whatever she needs to do to stay relevant.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE ATLANTA HOUSEWIVES?
Following the finale episode of the Real Housewives of DC, Stacie Turner did a live chat with the Washington Post, during which she answered questions from fans of the show.
Stacie touched on a lot of issues, and we mean a lot, including the latest in the search for her birth father (she plans on visiting him in Nigerian within the next 2 – 3 months), her thoughts on her castmates, how she feels about the Salahis’ backdoor exit from her home, and she reveals whether or not she would return for a second season if Bravo invites the Salahis back. Excerpts from Stacie’s chat below -
On Her First Phone Conversation With Her Birth Father -
“When I first spoke to my birth father he was overjoyed, crying and so thankful that I found him and was completely open and desiring to have a relationship and welcome me to the family. My real parents — the ones that raised me — are both deceased. My mother died when I was 13 and my father died 10 years ago. I would not have pursued the search if they were alive.”
On Her Plans To Meet Her Birth Father -
“I’m planning to go to Nigeria within the next two to three months to meet my entire family which includes 10 siblings. My biological mother does not know I found him. As you can imagine it is such a wonderful thing and I can’t wait to be united with them.”
Her Thoughts On Gay Marriage Today -
“Overall I’m really happy with the outcome of the show. There is one episode that I wish could have been changed a bit which was the episode that dealt with gay marriage equality. The episode did not include the real ending of that storyline which showed Jason and I supporting and celebrating the passage of the gay marriage equality bill in D.C. I felt badly that viewers were not a part of our evolution in thinking and did not see the full depth and breadth and context of our conversation about such an important and sensitive topic.”
Friendships With Her Castmates Before & After Doing The Show -
“I really did not know any of the ladies prior to the show except Mary, who I met a few times through a mutual friend Erika who appeared on the show. Since that time I’ve started to develop genuine friendships with each cast member and believe it or not, Cat is one of my favorites.”
Her Thoughts On The Salahis Today -
“No, I have not talked to the Salahis since the episode was filmed and saw them for the first time during publicity interviews for the season premiere of the show and most recently during the taping of the reunion show which is going to be bananas… Rather than talk about them behind their backs like everyone else we decided to confront them face to face at our house. And in true form, they ran out the back door and tried to act as though we were crazy for bringing up the white elephant in the room.”
On The Salahis Wanting To Buy A Home -
“The Salahis would not provide any financial information. Are you surprised? Their defunct winery does not produce any grapes or cash flow so once again they are deluding themselves thinking they could buy a hundred dollar house let alone an eight million dollar house. It became crystal clear that they were joy riding with me vs. really wanting to buy real estate. I did not appreciate them wasting my time.”
Would She Do A Second Season If The Salahis Return? -
“Yes. However, I think the storyline would be limited because I and the other cast members don’t really interact with them any longer and they have isolated themselves since the incident. What they do has no impact on me and what I choose to do. “
It seems wherever the Kardashians go, drama follows. TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian got a drink thrown at her during a bar scuffle days ago.
According to TMZ, the drama began for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star while the Kardashian clan was at NYC’s Juliet Supper Club on Thursday night. A male fan reportedly asked for a picture with Kim, during which his girlfriend lost her cool and threw a drink at Kim.
Scott Disick andKhloe Kardashianquickly came to Kim’s defense. Khloe’s wedding ring reportedly flew off her hand during the scuffle, but she was able to recover it moments later.
It gets even better as TMZ was able to obtain a picture of a soaked Kim just moments after the drink throwing. That photo is below.
Kim, 29, took to her blog over the weekend to tell her fans that she is “totally fine” following the bar incident. “I want to address this because everyone has been asking me if I’m ok after the bar fight last night.”
“A drunk male fan came up to me and asked to take a picture, and I obliged, but his girlfriend, who was also drunk, got a little out of hand. Luckily I had Scott and Khloe there to protect me.” Kim adds, “None of us were drinking.”
In a new interview with Wonderwall, Caroline discusses Teresa and Joe Giudice, whether or not she will be returning to the show next season, and touches on the news that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga will be joining the show. Excerpts from Caroline’s interview below -
WW: Are you looking forward to the new season of your show? CM: You know I don’t even know if I’m on the show to be honest. That’s up to the Bravo producers. At this very moment I don’t even know if I’m in the show. They haven’t told us much of anything.
WW: I hear Teresa’s sister-in-law will be on the show? Did you think she’d fit in? CM: I know that’s the word on the street, it’s in the rumor mill. I’m not sure though who’s going to be on, so I can’t talk about it. But yep she’s nice [Teresa's sister-in-law]; I’ve only met her in passing. You know just saying hi and bye. I haven’t seen her more than 20 minutes in my life. But she seems nice.
WW: How are Teresa and Joe doing after the arrest and bankruptcy? CM: They are good people, they are survivors and they’ll be fine.
WW: Would you welcome the idea of returning to “Real Housewives”? CM: I’d welcome it with open arms, but that’s up to the Bravo producers.
In other NJ news, disgruntled former Bravo employee Danielle Staub continues to bash Teresa Giudice in interviews. The latest is an interview with UsWeekly magazine, during which Danielle mentioned her desire to dress up as Teresa for Halloween.
“I was just going to take a waxing strip and put it on my forehead, with a little doll hair attached to it and call it Cornelius,” she told UsWeekly. “Oh, is that catty of me to say?”
And though Danielle is into “making fun of Teresa a little bit,” she may not go through with it. “Why kick her while she’s down?” she said referencing Teresa’s financial and legal troubles.
And finally, The Spin Crowd’sJonathan Cheban is now denying the newshe probably leaked out himself that he is dating 19-year-old Ashley Holmes. “We’re good friends. I’m friends with the family,” Jonathan tells PopEater. “She’s a cool girl.”
This news comes almost two weeks after the Teen Mom stars were shown getting into a violent physical altercation on the MTV hit show.
According to RadarOnline, the two are putting the past behind them and solidifying their bond by exchanging promise rings. “They just bought each other new rings as a sign of their commitment,” Gary’s mother Carol Zizak told Radar.
“They’re promise rings where they’re promising to themselves that they’re going to work on their relationship, not date anyone else, and have a future for [their daughter] Leah.” RadarOnline reported last week that the couple has been in couples therapy for months.
Carol states the on-again-off-again couple, who have a 23-month-old daughter together, bought the rings in the last month. The domestic violence episode, which has brought on an investigation by the couple’s local police department and child protective services, was apparently filmed a few months ago.
“Amber told me, ‘Come look at what Gary bought me!’” Carol remembered. “Gary’s looks like big bling jewelry!” Carol exclaimed. While Amber’s ring is “very pretty, dainty, and delicate — just like her.”
And when it comes to Amber’s bad temper, Carol defends her. “I know Amber and I know she can get angry, but I also know she loves Gary and Gary loves her,” Carol said. “They both love each other very much.”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA FOR THESE TWO TO BE BACK TOGETHER?
Following a short 9 episode season, the finale of the Real Housewives of DC aired Thursday night on Bravo.
The episode starts out with the continuation of the Salahis getting ready to crash trash a White House party. The gruesome twosome decide to phone in to Stacie to brag about their big night. Tareq brings the lols when he mentions he would have invited Stacie if he had the ability to get her tickets. It gets even worse as Tareq brags in his interview that even former Presidents are turned away from the dinner.
Just watching these two and knowing they had no invites to the event is beyond creepy, and is it just me, or did Tareq look a tad bit nervous in the limo? And I have to question the audacity of these two, crashing trashing a White House party with no invitations, a bright red sari, and camera crews in tow. Upon getting to the first check point, we find out the Salahis’ names are not on the list. They are told to stand around but instead, it looks like the Salahis just kept on walking on in.

In an interview with TV Guide, the outspoken housewife discusses her family drama, why she no longer talks to axed castmate Lisa Wu Hartwell, and why she believes new housewife Phaedra Parks is jealous of her.
Excerpts are below -
TVGuide.com: Even though you haven’t seen it yet, I can also tell you that the first episode shows you and Dwight coming to blows. What happened there? What did we miss in the off-season?
Leakes: What everyone doesn’t know is that we don’t talk on a regular basis. We were never the kind of friends that call each other every day … He and I were never that way. I know it may have appeared differently on the show. I did really like him and respect him, but one of the reasons that we hadn’t talked for a really long time is I felt that he had been doing things that weren’t worthy of a friendship.
TVGuide.com: You mean the deal between Dwight and Greg. (In the premiere, Kim tells NeNe that Dwight had been saying NeNe’s husband Greg had asked him for a $10,000 loan; Greg denies it.) Does the truth of that situation come out? Leakes: I think so. I’m pretty sure. I know we address the issue. I am very clear today about what happened, but at the time, I was not. You guys will see.
TVGuide.com: This season you deal with your son being arrested and your marital problems with Greg. Was it more difficult to keep filming than it has been in previous seasons?
Leakes: Yes.I go through a lot this season, emotionally, in my personal life and with my children. I think you’re going to see me go through a lot with my family. I will say that one thing I am is a very good mom. I’m not like a lot of moms today. I was raised strict and I’m pretty strict with my boys. Also, you guys have never seen Greg and I really disagree; you’ll see a lot of that this season. It was tough though. Really emotional scenes are draining. If you are crying and having an emotional moment in front of the camera, those are the times I want to run out of the damn house and cry by myself. It’s just hard when you know people are looking.
TVGuide.com: How are you and Greg now? Leakes: Greg and I, you know, we’re still husband and wife. We’re still married. No matter what happens, we will hopefully be friends.
TVGuide.com: There are two new housewives this season, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey. Cynthia’s not in the premiere, but Phaedra is. So far we know she’s a hotshot lawyer — and she’s got some strong opinions about you already.
Leakes: I knew Phaedra before. I didn’t know her personally, but we are from the same home town. We went to the same high school. I’m a little bit older. When we were in school — and I can say this because she told me this herself — she would say to me, “I’ve always looked up to you. I’ve always admired you.” I was very popular in high school. Once she was on this show though? She never really talked to me or spoke to me. It was strange. She had nothing at all to say to me. I felt like there was some type of jealousy there. … I will tell you I had heard that Phaedra always thought she was always glamorous or fabulous, I guess. I never saw that. I heard that a lot when we were filming, that she thought she was a diva and a “real Southern belle.” I was like, “Well, we’re from Athens, Ga.,” so I don’t think she’s a Southern belle.” She’s country.
TVGuide.com: Do you keep in touch with Lisa now that she’s off the show?
Leakes: No, I don’t talk to Lisa at all. I didn’t get to know her until the second season. We were really cool, even though … Look, I’m a very good judge of character. I should win a damn award for being a good judge of character. I get you right away. I get it. And so, as Lisa and I hung out more, I got her. That’s all I can really say. I got her. I got who she was. I was OK with who she was, but we could not be good friends. We could be friendly, and work together and even have a drink together. But as far as me crying on her shoulder or telling her secrets, I wouldn’t.
A new episode of the Atlanta Housewives airs next Monday on Bravo at 9/8c.
More troubling news concerning Teen Mom star Amber Portwoodjust a week after it was reported the 20-year-old was being investigated by her local police department and child protective services.
UsWeekly is now reporting that Amber’s current beau Chris Hossman, the same one who was featured on the last episode of the show, is a registered sex offender.
Chris was convicted of child molestation charges on March 21, 2005 in his home-state of Indiana. The 5’7″ offender was later released on October 6 the following year.
Chris briefly touched on his troubled past on the show, of course failing to leave out the fact that he is a sex offender. “Well, I got into trouble and I got caught and they put me on work-release,” he explained vaguely on his date with Amber. “It’s like a jail where you get to go out and work and you have to go back.”
Despite being photographed together with ex-fiance Gary Shirely just a week ago, UsWeekly refers to Chris as Amber’s current beau. One can only hope Amber will run as far away as possible from Chris upon hearing this news.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? ARE YOU SHOCKED?
UPDATE – RadarOnline is reporting the Chris Hossman that Amber dated is not a sex offender. Apparently, UsWeekly got his identity mixed up with another person bearing the same name. UsWeekly has since retracted their story.
