The rumors that Kate Gosselin is having an affair with her long-time bodyguard Steve Neild have been swirling for a while, but is there some truth to the gossip? I mean, Kate is apparently worried over her finances given that she no longer has a “real” job, yet she is still keeping Steve on the pay roll? Sounds fishy to me!
After being caught on what seemed like a romantic date without Kate’s eight, In Touch Weekly is reporting that the two looked quite cozy during an intimate dinner last month. “They were smiling and laughing,” an onlooker reports. “They definitely looked like a couple.”
Kate has long denied any romantic relationship with Steve, telling the Today show: “There is no affair. There never has been an affair;” claiming they are just “very good friends.” However, viewers of her former show Kate Plus 8 can attest that there were certainly some sparks (remember the pizza meltdown of the final season? yikes!)
Even her ex-husband Jon Gosselin has added to the rumors that Kate and Steve are a little more than just friends. “I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel,” Jon told Good Morning America. “You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous. Here I’m Mr. Mom. And then there’s some other guy traveling with my wife.” And he was wondering just what kind of protection Steve was providing for his then wife! “Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.”
Indeed, an insider is telling the mag that Kate and Steve definitely have a relationship! “Kate and Steve take long, lingering walks and even stay in the same room when they travel.” On a recent trip to Chicago the pair was definitely acting like a couple, and Steve also accompanied Kate on a recent trip to Australia! “Kate doesn’t hide her feelings for Steve,” the insider adds.”They’re not ashamed of their relationship.” But perhaps they should be!
For those of you who are thinking ‘good for Kate for finding a man!’ think again as Steve is actually a married man (who is often spotted sans wedding ring)! Steve’s wife of 20 years, Gina must not be too pleased by the amount of time he spends with a woman other than his wife. When In Touch attempted to contact Gina for her opinion on Kate’s relationship with her husband, she hung up! “She must be outraged,” a friend informed the mag. Kate has also claimed to be “good friends” with Steve’s wife, but somehow I doubt that! A photo of Gina Neild is below.
DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS? DO YOU BELIEVE KATE WOULD REALLY HAVE AN AFFAIR?
She’s the lady many fans love to hate. She adores her husband, despises pork and like it or not, generated a lot of buzz while earning the nickname Wacky Jackie.
Jackie Christie has a lot to discuss regarding the first season of Basketball Wives L.A., and while everything she says is coherent, I’m not sure we were watching the same show. In a recent chat with VH1, Jackie dishes on how she was portrayed, her confrontation(s) with the other women and how she believes that one day they will all be friends again. Good luck with that!
Highlights from her interview are below.
How do you feel about how the season went?
I feel ecstatic. There were ups and downs. Sometimes I didn’t know what to expect when episodes would come on. I said going in that I would wait until the end of the season to give my opinion, but I really think that here are messages in everything we do.
So, by the time things ended though, after Hawaii, and after the girls confronted you how did you feel?
I felt upset, more or less frustrated, and very disheartened. I felt betrayed, definitely, because I felt like the girls knew where I was coming from, and they were all coming to me asking for advice and I was mentoring them, trying to help them be better people. It got twisted up and misconstrued. All I ever said was let’s put it all on the table and talk about it and move through it. I felt like they all kind of cowarded out and didn’t really didn’t play ball.
How did you and your family come to the decision to do the show? Was anyone apprehensive about you doing it? Did Doug warn you?
[Laughs] When I first told him, he kind of took a step back for a sec, but as he thought about it he said, you know what? I think this would be a great thing for you to do. I think this will be a huge opportunity for you to get your message out there. I write books that inspire women and motivate women to do better things in their life, so he thought this would be a great idea to get my message out there.
How did your feelings for each girl change as the season went along?
I did not know Imani beforehand at all, so I was really surprised that we had so much in common. We got along very well. She called me all the time; we would chat and talk and, you know, laugh. She was really fun. As far as Malaysia [Pargo], she’s another one who I was getting close to. She’s a Leo like I am. She really expressed how much she looks up to me. She’s also married. She’s one of the ‘wives’ on the show, so we had a lot in common. I would pretty much talk to both of them and kind of mentor them. We got close as the season went on. Draya [Michele]? I look at her like a little sister. She was funny to me. I was really starting to get to like her a lot as well.
Have you spoken to the women since your meeting at the restaurant?
No. I’ve seen Laura and Gloria. I’ve been to fashion events with them. So, I’m around them. There’s still that tension; I can tell, but yet we all know that in the end we’re all going to be friends, hopefully, but we have not hashed out all the differences at all. As far as the rest of them go, I have not talked to any of them. I’ve talked to Tanya [Williams] and Kimsha [Artest] for sure but they’re not involved in that whole conflict.
Did they watch the show? Do you know if they have an opinion of like what’s going on without them being there?
Yeah, I think that they well, Tanya, I don’t think watches it — or at least she tells me she doesn’t. Kimsha? I rather not disclose how she feels about it. [Laughs] But Kimsha is a sweetheart and she understands. She was a part of the show and, hopefully, will return and be a part of the show.
I know you said you’re not a s— -starter, but you’re a s— -finisher. Were you ready to throw down if it came to that?
Oh, definitely. [Laughs] I hate to say that but that’s just how I am. I’ve been a fighter my whole life.
Are you happy with how you’ve been portrayed? Because the final episodes are pretty harsh.
Yeah. So far, I’m like, “Here I am again taking the hits for everybody else.” I tell my fans and my followers on Twitter, “Hang in there. Stay with it!” I mean, nobody would want to hear “She’s a bully. She’s a psychopath. She’s all these different things.” I know that I’m a very confident and strong person. I know who I am and what I’m representing. Names don’t really hurt me that much to where it’s going to change anything. But I would have preferred to been edited like Draya was.
Draya was brought into the group as the girl who had to fight to get her way in, and now she comes off as the person who’s the least judgmental — do you think that that’s pretty accurate?
No, I don’t and Draya knows it’s not as well. I think that’s why today it’s good that there is a reunion and everyone gets a chance to express how they feel. I’m definitely not one to hold my tongue. I don’t have any personal issues against Draya. It’s not Draya’s fault. It’s not anyone’s fault. It’s the way that the ball bounced. Now it’s time to put it out there and let’s get to the bottom and the realness of what’s going on and whats the essence of who you are.
If there is a season two, do you want to do it?
[Laughs] I would definitely be open to discussing it. I’d love to do it, but I’d like to have some conversations first just to make sure that going in, I’ll get that opportunity for the world to know who I really am.
I have to admit, if I hadn’t watched the entire season I would think Jackie seems like a pretty down-to-earth chick from a quick read of that interview. Funny how that works, huh?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JACKIE’S INTERVIEW? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ALL THE LADIES RETURN FOR SEASON TWO? WOULD YOU EVEN WATCH A SEASON TWO?
Today, the E! news reporter revealed she is choosing to undergo a double mastectomy after her double lumpectomy failed to completely eradicate the breast cancer.
Giuliana, 36, appeared on the Today Show this morning with husband Bill Rancic, during which the couple revealed they considered another lumpectomy and radiation. They are, however, electing to go with the more drastic option to make certain the cancer is gone. According to her doctors, the cancer will have a less than 1 percent chance of returning.
“At the end, all it came down to was choosing to live and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life,” Giuliana said of her decision to proceed with the aggressive surgery. “It was not an easy decision but it was the best decision for me.” she says.
“I would like to take the stigma away. ‘Mastectomy’ the word seemed so scary to me at first. After doing research and seeing the advancements, the surgery has come a long way from 20 years ago. The results can be incredible,” added Giuliana.
Another deciding factor for Giuliana is the fact that she and hubby Bill are still trying to have a baby. “If I had chosen to just have another lumpectomy… Then I would have to put off having a baby for several years,” said Giuliana, as the procedures following another lumpectomy could leave her at the age of menopause.
Bill’s support also played a major role in her decision. “Bill said to me, ‘I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid,’ ” said Giuliana. “He said, ‘I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this. I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision.”
Despite the setback, the Giuliana and Bill stars remains positive. “I hope for a full recovery by New Year’s Eve. We’re planning to be in Times Square!” Giuliana says. “2012 is our year,” adds Bill. “We’re going to ring in the New Year happy and healthy.”
Best wishes to Giuliana and Bill.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON GIULIANA’S DECISION TO UNDERGO A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY?
According to the latest NeNe Leakes is not about to let Kim Zolciak one-up her in the spin-off department (remember how upset she got over Tardy For The Party!) and she is demanding her own show. With Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding — Kim’s one-season spin-off currently in the works to chronicle her wedding to Kroy Biermann — Star Magazine is reporting that the always big-hearted and supportive Ms. Leakes is beside herself with jealousy!
“She’s furious that Kim got her own show and she didn’t,” a source tells Star. Apparently NeNe has become quite the diva (oh, really?) ever since her rather volatile stint on Celebrity Apprentice. “She’s saying she’s too big for RHOA, and Bravo doesn’t pay her enough,” the source claims. The source adds that NeNe erroneously believes RHOA will “crumble” if she leaves and the show is “all about her.”
“NeNe has told friends if she doesn’t get what she wants, she will quit!” Would the fans really mind that? “She thinks she’s Madonna,” the source reveals which is the most laugh out loud, pee my pants quote I’ve ever heard from a “source”!
In fact, on a recent episode of WWHL, NeNe expected the star-treatment with a full list of over-the-top demands! “She insisted on her own, very expensive make-up artist, a stretch limo, and the presidential suite during her stay,” the insider asserts, adding that NeNe also requested Cristal Champagne but was rejected! BRAHAHAHAHA!
And while she was the consummate professional (ha!) on stage, things were quite the opposite behind the scenes. “She acted nice to host Andy Cohen while shooting but laid into him afterward and said she wants her own show,” the source alleges. Luckily for all of us, the mag is reporting that the Bravo execs are not likely to accommodate her given her recent behaviors! And in a recent interview Andy stated there are no plans for Kim’s spin-off to be permanent as he likes her on the “mother-ship.” Although if NeNe and Kim continue to refuse to film together things are going to get very interesting!
Upon being questioned by fans about the status of her new home, Sheree Tweeted: “not done yet, really just getting started! It’s been quite a handful… everyone’s on their own schedule & seem to have an agenda.” Basically, the house is in exactly the same condition as it was during filming!
The property that viewers have seen getting demolished over the last few episodes of RHOA was indeed purchased with the intent to build a new home — but it was not purchased by Sheree! Her mother, Thelma Ferguson, actually purchased the original house in a bank foreclosure for around $300,000 in Dec 2010, due to Sheree’s recent financial struggles. Sheree’s mother, Thelma is a successful author and MBA educated business woman who seems quite different from her gold-digging daughter. A copy of the deed is listed below.
If you remember Sheree had big hopes of getting a seven-figure divorce settlement from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield who owns a recording studio and is a retired Atlanta Falcons player. Sheree ended up getting a mere $1M and a portion of his pensions. Instead of paying the attorneys that defended her all the way to the GA Supreme Court, she purchased an Aston-Martin (featured on last season’s show) which was then seized!
As the original home on the Fulton County property was demolished it is now an empty lot on which Sheree owes quite a hefty mortgage. In addition to the rent on her townhouse (which is rumored to be paid by Bravo). How is Sheree financing all of this? She is apparently paying the mortgage on this now empty lot with the money she makes as CEO of her own company. Yes — I burst out laughing too, because Sheree has incorporated herself! According to the State of Georgia, Sheree is the owner, founder, and Chief Executive (and sole employee, it seems) of Sheree’ Corporation, which may or may not still be in business. Oh, ladies — just live within your means!
Also, interesting is the tale of Kandi Burruss‘ two birthday parties. While we all watched with horror as reDICKulous performed a dip n dick at Kandi’s birthday party last week, it appears that was merely a made-for-TV party arranged by Bravo! It turns out Kandi actually had another party which appeared classy, sophisticated and stripper-free!
Kandi’s real (re: Bravo-free) party took place at Straits Restaurant in Atlanta and featured quite an impressive guest list, including former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell, Mama Joyce and Kandi’s daughter. The only Housewives-related guests were Phaedra Parks and Derek J (Kandi’s hairdresser)! Some photos of Kandi and Phaedra at Kandi’s real party are below!
Finally, a new episode of RHOA debuts tonight and we meet possible new Housewife Marlo Hampton, who happens to be dating NeNe’s ex-fling Charles Grant (isn’t she still married?). Cynthia Bailey continues to have issues with her family and her husband Peter Thomas. And Sheree confronts her ex-husband over child support issues. A preview of the new episode is below.
Episode five of Real Housewives of Atlanta airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

Teresa, Teresa, oh, Teresa. I feel slighted, as if I was in the presence of greatness knowing that the Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Skinny Italian was mere ninety minutes away from me, answering questions openly and honestly (ahem) in my tiny home state’s capitol. Maybe she will, as she recently opened up about her husband’s dinner date at TGIFriday’s!
Going on The Wendy Williams Show recently, Teresa isn’t just defending herself, but also her marriage and finances. When questioned about whether she was the only housewife in financial strife, Teresa took the high road refusing to speculate about the business of her cast mates (and former friends). Of Juicy Joe Guidice’s and her situation, she explains, “Joe and I are both hard workers. We just withdrew from bankruptcy.”
Wendy Williams then asked about those dreaded rumors of infidelity, sparked by pictures of Juicy dining with another woman at TGIFriday’s. That Joe is one big spender, eh? Teresa assures Wendy, “That was a friend of ours.” She continues, telling a story about dining recently with a hot male companion who is friends with the couple. Teresa was thankful she wasn’t photographed with him to start the gossip mill swirling. “It’s not fair that just because you are out with a friend, you are cheating on your spouse,” she tells Wendy. Teresa loves her Juicy Joe.
You know who else she loves? Donald Trump, the man that is helping her expand her brand on Celebrity Apprentice. You know who she may not love as much? Her rumored co-star and competitor on the upcoming season, Victoria Gotti. Not to be outdone by Teresa, Victoria showed up on The Wendy Williams Show hinting about a brewing feud between Mrs. Guidice and herself. While never out-right confirming her spot on the reality competition, Gotti teases, “I recently worked with someone on a project, and that person is a fellow Italian woman …” Follow-up questions from Wendy made it pretty clear that fellow lady was Teresa.
A shocked Wendy admits, “In my mind you guys would be friends,” to which Gotti replies, “In my mind we were too. But then there comes a scene… when my mind gets completely blown… So you’re going to see this on TV, it’s a quite a blow-up… I thought it was gonna get a little physical there. Nene and Starr, I mean, that was like nothin’.'” I honestly can’t say I’m surprised to hear that. I’d kind of like to see Teresa and Nene go head to head!
While Victoria Gotti may not be hanging out with Teresa anytime soon, the same may be said for Melissa Gorga. The upcoming holidays always bring together fun, family and lots of stress, and Melissa and husbandJoe Gorga may be choosing less stress over more family time. In a recent interview, Melissa admits that Christmas plans have yet to be made. She says, “It’s yet to be determined. Sometimes when something stresses you out and when you have to think to hard about something, sometimes it’s better to stay away for a little while.”
While Melissa would love for the cousins to enjoy the holidays together, it seems that Teresa may be the roadblock. Melissa reveals, “If it were up to me, we would be together every single Christmas Eve. Our children would be opening presents together. We’d be sharing every single Christmas together.”
Joe Gorga agrees. When it comes to his sister Teresa, he knows she can bring unwanted drama. Joe concurs, “There’s certain things you just can’t forgive and forget. It’s a holiday. You want to enjoy it. You want to be happy. You don’t want to be aggravated. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I want to be happy.”
Melissa, however, remains hopeful. “I just really hope that we can all work this out. We all have such amazing opportunities here. We’re all great people.” She continues, “Everyone’s talented. Everyone has amazing families. We all just need to let it go and work it out. It’s the holidays and that’s it. I don’t want to say anything else. We really need to work it out.”
And finally, last night, Teresa spoke at a library benefit (of all things!) in Columbia, South Carolina. In an interview prior to her appearance, Teresa was asked about her reality star status. Teresa reveals, “I’m really humble and really down to earth. I don’t walk around saying that. I’m still true to who I am.” Cough, cough. She continues, “I’m still the same person. The way they portray you on TV, that’s not who you really are. I’m really, real, and I think my true friends know who I really am. They’re just really protective of me.”
However, Teresa admits she has a feisty side (table flipping, anyone?), but she explains, “I stand up for myself if I believe in something. If I have to state my case, I have to state it. If I’m wrong, then I’ll keep my mouth shut.” Is that how it works? Even when discussing Bravo’s Andy Cohen and his not so gentle ribbing of she and her husband, Teresa laughs, exclaiming, “[T]hat’s his job. And I love Andy. I’m a big girl and I can defend myself.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF TERESA’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT SHE AND VICTORIA GOTTI WILL SPAR ON THE UPCOMING SEASON OF CELEBRITY APPRENTICE? SHOULD THE GORGAS AND THE GUIDICES CALL A TRUCE FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
After realizing hardly anyone is siding with her and/or seeing her as a victim in her divorce battle,Kim Kardashian is now changing her tactics, moving away from attacking her husband, Kris Humphries… at least on the record.
While Kris has had to endure camp Kardashian leaking all sorts of negative stories about him to the press in the past month, he finally had enough this week after filing an annulment — accusing his wife of fraud and simply using him as a prop on her E! reality show. TMZ then quoted Kim as saying Kris was “pathetic” amongst other things. Unfortunately for Kimmie, the public remains overwhelmingly on Kris’s side as most believe he got used by the Kardashian clan.
PEOPLE magazine is now reporting sources close to Kim are claiming she no longer wants to fight dirty. “The filing is, of course, upsetting,” says the source. “She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on… Kim doesn’t want a battle.” Riiight. No word yet on whether Kimmie and her camp will stop leaking stories about Kris to the press, you know, stories like the current Star magazine cover.
As for Kris, sources close to him tell TMZ he doesn’t want a divorce because of his religion. Apparently, that religion didn’t prohibit him from marrying a sex-tape-fame-whore skank.
According to TMZ, Kris filed for an annulment because it wipes the slate clean by simply erasing the marriage. Even better, if his annulment request is denied, Kris will reportedly ask for a legal separation that will extend indefinitely. And even though an indefinite separation would prevent him from marrying again, he still believes it’s preferable to a divorce. Wowzers.
Legal experts, however, state Kim can still get a divorce with or without the help of Kris as California only requires the consent of one-half of a couple to end a marriage.
Days after an unwed Kourtney announced she was expecting her second child with baby daddy Scott Disick, Farrah tweeted: “I’m shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again. Did she not learn anything from Teen Mom? Maybe it’s a fake pregnancy like Kim’s wedding. SAD.”
After some fans alerted Farrah that Kourtney, 32, and Scott, 27, are both adults that can take care of their children, Farrah responded, “Double standards in this world? Yes, and guess what? Age and money honestly do not change a person’s poor choice. Quit making excuses.”
The Kardashians, who were probably more than happy to have this new controversy, wasted no time in slamming Farrah! Below are some of their responses via Twitter –
Kourtney - “Why would I have anything to do with teen mom? I’m 32 years old! I may look young honey, but don’t get it twisted. :)”
Scott - “Were not teenagers ya fucking moron.”
Khloe - “I don’t even know who this person is? How do u?” was Khloe’s reply to Scott’s tweet.
Scott - “I just thought she was some shit stain on twitter, no?” was Scott’s mature response to Khloe.
Yikes. As for Farrah, she sort of backtracked this morning by tweeting: “4 all who misunderstood: regards to kourtney K.~ I hope she takes her relationship w/her boyfriend more serious 4 their children-takecare.” And no, that makes zero sense to me as well!
While having two kids out of wedlock is definitely not the best route to go, it’s a bit ridic for Farrah to compare the situation of a 32-year-old Kourtney to Teen Moms. And darn you Farrah for forcing me to defend a Kardashian!
Finally, to further distract us from Kimmie’s divorce mess, Khloe Kardashian is also making headlines after she fired back at her “haters” for criticizing her looks. See, Khloe was photographed (the picture is below) going to the gym without makeup which led to some not so kind comments from fans.
Khloe of course took to her Twitter to respond. She wrote, “Some people are so stressed trying to be perfectly flawless…. but I’m so HAPPY to be perfectly flawed… Haters are like crickets; they make a lot of noise you can hear but you never see them, then you walk right by them and they’re quiet.”
Khloe later added, “Its crazy 2me that if I dont go 2the gym I get judged. If I do go I still get judged. Yes when u work out u sweat, get red… This is why I live for me and not for anyone else. You learn quickly that you will NEVER make everyone happy in life. But I am happy :).”
Apparently those who are very happy always make time to respond to their “haters.” Seems like the Kardashians could definitely use a hobby or two… better yet some well deserved time away from the spotlight.

TELL US – YOU BUYING THAT KIM WANTS PEACE? DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH FARRAH’S CRITISIM OF KOURTNEY? THOUGHTS ON KHLOE FIRING BACK AT THE HATERS?
Adrienne particularly took offense to the fact that Lisa didn’t ask her if she would host Pandora Vanderpump’s bachelorette party at her Palms hotel in Vegas so that she can get free promotion for her business on national television! Adrienne decided to confront Lisa during her event, and Lisa did not back down, making it clear the owner of Planet Hollywood was a family friend and that the decision to have the bachelorette party there was her daughter’s.
In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa fires back at Adrienne, hinting that Adrienne’s only concern was promoting her own hotel. Lisa also feels the whole argument was ridic stating she doesn’t question Adrienne whenever she chooses to dine at other restaurants in Beverly Hills.
Lisa wrote: “Apparently [Adrienne] was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood . Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother’s neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn’t understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn’t going and hadn’t been involved in the arrangements.”
Lisa continued, “Somehow, to cut a long story short, I was roped into this trip, and obviously, now you, the viewer, will get to witness it, so everything changes. What was to be Pandora’s trip became a major production, and I was suddenly in trouble for it. I resent the fact that suddenly I am to blame, it is a huge deal to entertain 14 people, and I certainly would never dream of asking anybody to do that. Robert wanted to comp the whole weekend as his gift to Pandora, Why do I feel I have to constantly justify mine and my daughter’s actions?”
To close out her blog, Lisa hinted that perhaps Adrienne was just trying to create drama for the camera. “When Adrienne and Paul are having dinner at a neighboring restaurant, it wouldn’t even enter my mind to question them! It seems as if some people are looking for a problem. . . So there we have it. Once again a pleasant evening was marred by a really petty matter. I am losing patience with this constant need for altercations when we all have busy lives,” blogged Lisa.
Pandora also took to Twitter to defend her mom. Pandora tweeted, “Hello?Do I have a voice? Jason and I planned our own bachelor/bachelorette parties, not @LisaVanderpump #givemeabreak #loveplanethollywood.” Pandora later added: “An old friend offered to throw it at his casino PH and I have known him since I was 9!”
“Taylor’s deal is with Simon and Schuster and the book will be out in February 2012,” a source close to Taylor reveals. “It will be a memoir and the abuse she endured while married to Russell, as well as another abusive relationship she was in the past will all be detailed.”
The source adds, “Taylor is writing the book to put a face on women involved in domestic violence. She wants the public to know there are resources for battered women, and there is a way out.”

Whoever is calling Cynthia passive probably means to say passive-aggressive (which I’m pretty sure is a pre-requisite for being a Housewife!). Proving that she really wants to keep her job she is not backing down from her fight with Kim Zolciak and she’s also (finally) taking a stand on her sister’s involvement in her marriage to Peter Thomas!
Taking to her Bravo blog, which she titled “No Respect,” Cynthia reiterates that she never, ever, not once received any sort of wedding gift from Kim! “If I got a gift, I would say that I did. I received gifts from Kandi,Phaedra [Parks], and NeNe. Why would I lie?”
“To be honest, I never really cared that she didn’t bring a gift, her presence at the wedding was presents enough. The only thing that hurt me was how she insulted me by bringing her own wine and saying that Peter and I wouldn’t make it a year. I never got an apology for that,” Cynthia seethes.
While it’s a day late and a dollar short, Cynthia apologizes for her husband’s equally appalling behavior at Kim’s shower! “Well anyway, I apologize for Peter andApollo [Nida]bumping heads at her shower. Again, it was not the time or the place. Again, we did not instigate it in the first place. Again, I am happy for Kim and wish her well. I really have no issue with Kim. Now, can we move on about who brought who a present already?” Yeah — maybe both of you could just stop bringing it up?
“I love Peter, and he loves me. Our relationship is not perfect, because we are not perfect. We don’t not always agree on everything, but we have each other’s back 100%. He pushes me and I push him. Our love is not based on money or materialistic things. We have both had plenty of that. I choose love over money every time,” Cynthia said in defense of her marriage.
And because she loves her hubby, she thinks her sister Malorie Bailey Massieshould butt out! “I love my sister very much, but her interference with my marriage is a problem,” Cynthia clarified. “I appreciate her concern, but at 44, I think I got this. I have no desire to make choices for Mal regarding her marriage, and I deserve the same respect.”
“I confide in my sister because we are sisters. Not to be judged or criticized. I would never cross the line between her union with her husband unless she asked me to,” she continued. And she has one request going forward: stay out of it! “Love you, Mal, but can you leave me and Peter alone?”
And responding to claims that she is NeNe’s puppy on a leash, lacky, made for TV friend; Cynthia claims that’s not true! “I have a great friendship with NeNe because she has been a good friend to me. I am a good friend to her as well. You can’t force real friendships, you either connect or you don’t.” Yet Friendship Contracts are still necessary?
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S COMMENTS? SHOULD MALORIE BUTT OUT? DOES SHE DESERVE AN APOLOGY FROM KIM? IS SHE NENE’S PUPPY?
