Phaedra Parks‘ friendship with Kandi Burruss has been on rocky terrain as of late between huzzzzband drama, checks that haven’t come, and shady comments. Despite the issues Phaedra promises they will always remain friends and share a “rich history” together. Rich, eh?
Eileen kicks off her blog, “What is this, a dinner party or the Spanish Inquisition? I don’t think I’ve shied away from discussing the details of how Vincent and I met (remember that time when Brandi threw wine in my face?), despite the fact that it really is nobody’s business. Oh and by the way, everyone has moved on! Well, almost everyone…If a friend wants to “get to know” me, I’m happy to answer anything. Lisa V.’s questions seemed far from friendly, but OK.”
Just a mere eight days old and already Ace Wells Tucker, the son of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, has a new sleek black Mercedes toy ride-on electric car parked in his room! Baby Ace is quite a lucky little guy, he apparently also has an enviable collection of stuffed toys. One such lovey-to-be is a life-sized Snoopy plush that appears to be larger than his vertically challenged dad, Todd!
The baby boy even has his own Instagram account, acewellstucker, where his parents selected a slogan that states, ‘enjoy seeing the world thru my eyes!’ Ace already has a whopping 42,300 followers! On the site, Ace is photographed with family members like his oftentimes cantankerous grandmother who is also featured on RHOA, Mama Joyce. Sisters Riley and Kaela, who are also sometimes featured on the reality series are depicted looking lovingly at their household’s latest addition. Famous friends are photographed cuddling with Ace like talk show host, comedienne and actress Sherri Shepherd.
Lisa kicks off her blog with a funny, “Let’s start this week’s blog with a riddle. Question: What happens when you take a handful of housewives out of Beverly Hills and put them in the Hamptons? Answer: They turn into a bunch of ridiculous, judgmental bitches. LOL!”
R&B semi-bad boy Ray J, who also stars on the VH1 hit reality series, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” got engaged to co-star and longtime lady love, Princess Love. The pair seemingly had a kind of dress rehearsal engagement on the final episode of the show. In actuality however, Ray reportedly popped the question again and with more flair on Boxing Day last month, while down on one knee and in front of a private jet before they were scheduled to take off.
The romantic engagement was completely planned by Ray J, who wanted to orchestrate a memorable and romantic event Princess would never forget. The crooner called his girl’s closest friends, as well as her parents to meet him at a heliport the day after Christmas. When the group arrived on the scene, Ray J asked them to hide on the jet, then surprise Princess once the romantic deed was over. According to the news outlet, Princess claims, she cried like a baby when Ray J presented her with a huge riveting yellow teardrop cut diamond framed by two rows of smaller ones.
Nothing like coming home from a twelve hour work day to drama filled two-hour premiere of Mob Wives! I don’t know if it’s a punishment or Christmas all over again, but I’m going to go with the latter. Karen Gravano is living the dream, back in New York after a stint in Arizona, and she wants her teenage daughter to recognize how fortunate she is to live this lifestyle. Meanwhile, Renee Graziano is hoping to leave drama and negativity in the past. A cook-out at Karen’s house is just what she needs, even though both women realize that Karen’s daughter Karina is going to give them multiple coronaries. She’s way too pretty to be a teenager, but Renee hopes that Karen will allow Karina to mermaid model for her Mob Candy line. At least they can keep an eye on her that way.
Big Ang is recovering from throat cancer, and with her blonde hair, she looks like a boss. She is extremely grateful for her friends’ support during her surgery and following ordeal, but she credits husband Neil for being her rock. I love Ang, and I am thrilled to hear she’s cancer free (as the season airs, prayers are with her now). Her doctor touts an organic diet and exercise…oh, and she needs to quit smoking. It’s hard. Also difficult? Drita D’Avanzo’s household. She’s juggling having growing girls and her husband home from the clink. While she’s thrilled to have the balance of a normal family, she wants her daughters to realize how far she’s come. Drita takes them on a tour of the projects where she grew up so they appreciate the beautiful home and pool they are fortunate enough to have. She’s worked terribly hard, and she wants her daughters to appreciate the struggle she’s had to become the woman she is today. Of course, a book about her life is the next step in her empire…if she can convince her husband Lee that it’s not disloyal to their lifestyle.
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband? Despite the real issues at stake (so Cynthia claims), the drama surrounding the couple’s relationship sometimes come off as manufactured at best, and boring at worst.
In a last ditch effort to convince Real Housewives of Orange County fans that he’s not a liarface, Brooks Ayers is writing a tell-all book, in which he calls out producers for fabricating the “cancer gate” storyline for ratings.
Brooks continues to insist that he did not lie about having cancer. “I didn’t fake cancer,” he tells Page Six. “Who in their right mind would fake cancer?”
