Reality Tea

Demetria McKinney

Real Housewives of Atlanta was all kinds of uncomfortable and annoying last night. I may be in the minority, but I found myself cheering on the newbies, Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan. Claudia nailed it when she referred to NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks as immature, catty, and bitchy.

Demetria, who got a heaping dose of NeNe‘s unsolicited advice and Phaedra bitter hate, shared her thoughts in her blog. “When NeNe and Phaedra came to the studio I was in my element — getting vocals laid for my single “Trade It All” and ready to let the ladies hear my passion, music,” she recalled.

NeNe gave some advice, but I handled the situation the way I wanted to. And after seeing her commentary in the confessionals, I can’t take any advice from her,” said Demetria. “To me, intention is everything. I can’t trust you are giving me sound advice to help if you mock or scoff at my situation. It’s a shame too. After what she and Gregg [Leakes] went through to get back on track, it might have been worthy advice and a good way for us to bond. But oh well.”

Kim Kardashian landed another Vogue cover. Sure, it’s Vogue Australia, but it is a huge step up from her other recent work. First, Kim failed to break the internet when she posed nude for Paper magazine. Then, she bleached her eyebrows for the cover of LOVE magazine. Paper? LOVE? HUH!? So, we have heard of Vogue, we have heard of Australia, and Kim brought both clothes and eyebrows to this photo shoot. I’d say this is a win for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

Above, Kim shared, “Here is the 1st look of my February cover with Australian Vogue!!!!” Kim opened up about being a working mother (BWAHAHAHA) at the shoot. “Since I’ve become a mom I’ve figured out how to prioritize it the best I ever have,” she claimed. “It’s definitely harder but you figure it out. The biggest misconception about me is that I don’t work hard and that everything comes easy. I like to prove people wrong, and just live my life, and do what I do, and work hard. I’m proud of that.”

NeNe Leakes & Kenya Moore both attend the 2015 Golden Globes

NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore are the lucky ladies who both attended the Golden Globes last night, followed by real celeb-studded afterparties! 

The warring Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars both glammed it up but kept it classy in gorgeous gowns. Hopefully they had no unfortunate red carpet shenanigans, either! Afterwards NeNe posed with stars at the NBC/Universal’s 72nd Annual Golden Globes After Party, while Kenya partied at the HBO post Golden Globes bash. 

Kenya opted for a cleavage-barring red Pucci gown and classic Old Hollywood hair. NeNe did peek-a-boo cleavage with a keyhole neckline in a custom Michael Costello gown. I have to say, I think both ladies look fabulous and I love both of their looks. I’m most impressed with NeNe’s hair – which avoided looking like Ne-Man or uncooked Ramen, and was instead swept back into an elegant updo. Kenya’s hair, equally the subject of much gossip, looked gorgeous as well. 

Below are photos from both ladies at the events – as well as a poll for you to vote on who wore it best!

Sonja Morgan is all about diversifying your business portfolio, but she doesn’t often diversify to fruition (invisible toaster oven, anyone?). In the latest, Sonja announced that she is staring a ‘Sonja in the City’ podcast. 

The Real Housewives Of New York star shares that she is partnering with famed chef Pace Webb to participate in a lifestyle podcast aptly named Sonja in the City, where Sonja will chime in on Society & Culture. Why – do we need more delusional musings about the many moons ago when she was Lady Morgan, highfalutin manor hostess entertaining the likes of Lord Grantham and Lady Mary?

Sonja’s podcast will be available on Play.It, a new podcast network, which will also feature shows on a variety of lifestyle and entertainment topics from well-known hosts. Sonja promises her show will contain “laughs, a lot of tears…and a lot of fashion tips.”

claudia jordan vs. nene leakes in puerto rico

Was anyone else totally confused by this episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta? I don’t know what was more disturbing: the majorly disjointed story or Claudia Jordan‘s feet. I need some clarity on motives here – and also on shade, which I thought was genteel and left one guessing, not obviously wrong like a bunion crusted-foot. 

The clips set-up this episode to be a big show-down in Puerto Rico between the establishment and the upstarts (not unlike an episode of Downton Abbey, although I dare say Lady Mary’s reads are far superior to anyone on RHOA). And yes, that did happen, but I felt like we’re missing some serious backstory. Was there a reason Phaedra Parks is suddenly gunning for Demetria McKinney like Evander Holyfield? Is Phaedra in love with Roger Bobb too? Speaking which, I beginning to believe Roger the Friendly Ghost comes from Claudia’s mysterious sugar daddy connect – or Kenya Moore‘s over-active iMANgination!

Claudia Jordan and Willie Geist were guests on Watch What Happens Live last night and Claudia took the opportunity to explain her fight with NeNe Leakes on Sunday’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.  

Willie watched the episode and joked to Claudia, “You took a shot at the throne!”  Claudia replied, “You know what, I do not start with anyone.  I will respond and I felt like I had no choice.”

Claudia says the shade coming from Phaedra toward Demetria was totally out of the blue, there was no beef between them.  She says Demetria is a really cool girl.  A cool girl who happens to be in the WWHL audience.

sister wives

So did anyone change the channel from the Golden Globes to tune into Sister Wives? I think Kody Brown’s hair could have trumped any of the celebrity manes on the red carpet!

Last night was yet another road trip with the Browns to–you guessed it–meet another polygamist family! We also learn that the latest lady to move into the cul-de-sac compound is Christine’s mom. Mykelti is clearly her mother’s daughter when it comes to enthusiasm, and Janelle is nervous about returning home. After the vacation, Janelle hopes to speak to Meri about their tumultuous past. The family’s first stop is at their friend’s polygamy museum. Of course it is. Kody plans to hit him up for a business loan for My Sister Wife’s Closet. Kody asks for about $100,000, but his friend wants collateral for the loan. Perhaps Robyn would suffice? I just don’t see how that tacky jewelry inventory is worth securing that amount of money.
