The Real Housewives of Atlanta is going to be a whole new ballgame next season. There are a so many new faces and a lot of recycled faces coming on board for this sure-to-be-drama-filled season that we can barely keep track of the guest list anymore! Most of them turned out Monday night for the kick off of Kenya Moore’s latest business venture – a hair care line, which was filmed for the show, of course.
Among those in attendance: Kenya Moore (with a new beau??!), Marlo Hampton, Sheree Whitfield, newbieAmiyah Scott, newbie Kim Fields, returning cast Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks, and Kandi Burruss, showing off her adorable baby bump. Also returning – at least for a hello – is Claudia Jordan! She was rumored to have been dumped for the new season, but she was in attendance for filming and it wasn’t just as Kenya’s guest (if you’ll remember, she opened up attendance to fans on Instagram, too), as Claudia claims she was mic’ed. “They told me to go in and say hello and I was mic’d. It was waAAAAAY too many people in the scene.” She added that “it was HOT as hell in there! We left early.”
Ramona Singer is going overboard to prove Ramona Pinot is better than Skinnygirl! According to sources Ramona was totally drunk at the Real Housewives Of New York reunion after she spent the entire filming sipping on her own fine wine.
Ramona got so drunk an insider claims she passed out on the stage during taping! “The ladies broke for lunch, which was ordered into the venue and Ramona supplied her own wine,” a source shares. “By the time they had to return to the set, she was out of it.” Due to her constant pinot swilling Ramona requested two bathroom breaks, which required filming to be paused.
“Ramona drank so much of her own wine, which she brought with her to the taping, that she literally fell asleep,” dishes an eyewitness. Hopefully someone drew all over her face with eyeliner! Ramona denied taking a mid-reunion nap and claimed she was “meditating” for a few minutes. She was just resting her eyes, you guys!!!!
“One day the people that didn’t believe in you will tell everyone how they met you,” wrote Monty. “That quote is in honor of @kimrichards11 all I will say at this time besides being best friends, and personally a person who has a great heart is thankful to all her fans and friends for believing in her.”
Most ladies worry about gaining too much while pregnant – not Coco! The former reality star, turned talk show, host who is pregnant with her first child, reveals she’s lost her appetite and lost 10lbs when she ditched booze after learning she was knocked up. But her boobs are getting bigger and bigger, so at least that’s good news, right?!
Given that Coco is not like most women, she doesn’t do anything the usual way. “Think of a pregnant lady and I’m almost always the opposite of her,” she declares. Coco has started a pregnancy blog to chronicle her pregnancy experiences and share what she’s learned with other women.
Through her blog Coco dispenses advice, such as her belief that stress over baby weight makes pregnant ladies eat more and therefore get fatter. Above, Coco shows off her itty-bitty baby bump, writing “See? U can see a baby bump? 5 months”
Shannon Beador didn’t mean to ruin Brooks Ayers’ birthday dinner. But Vicki Gunvalson was on the war path as soon as Shannon insinuated Vicki’s (now ex) boyfriend’s less than stellar reputation was again under attack. So, ruin it she did. Shannon defends her motives in this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County blog, as well as explains her struggles disciplining her children – and living through Tamra Judge’s booty workout class!
Noting that this week was not her favorite episode, Shannon begins by reflecting on the mangled attempt she and husband David made at disciplining their toilet-papering twins. Upset more about Stella hurting her foot during the TP-ing incident than the incident itself Shannon explains that the twins “have become more defiant and it is completely understandable with what they have been through in the last year. That being said, it was important for David and I to come up with some sort of ‘consequence’…It was David’s idea to write a letter. I thought it was a bit harsh, but went along with it. I was not excited that David reminisced about his prior bouts with pumpkin smashing as a child, but that is the humorous side of my husband.”
Back in July, Andy Cohenclaimed to have no knowledge of rumors that Joe and family were in talks with Bravo about filming a special. Regarding the series happening, Andy slyly evaded, “If it is, I have nothing to do with it.” Hmmm. Is Andy taking lessons from the Giudices’ lawyer about building a solid defense? Deny, deny, deny.
