Apparently ‘Check My Charges’ Marlo Hampton now fits the Real Housewives Of Atlanta brand just like Sheree “She By SheBroke” Whitfield does! How the mighty have fallen. Despite promises of revamping Atlanta Housewives, Bravo decided, instead, to turn back time by returning BOTH Marlo and Sheree for season 8 – and they’re already fighting up a storm but not with each other… (Yet).
The new season of RHOA finally – officially – kicked off filming because NeNe Leakes‘ abrupt departure put the show in a tailspin. Reports from sources close to production say that Sheree has finalized her Bravo contract and is returning as a full time Housewife!
Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi shared, “Happiest birthday wishes to this little monkey of mine. Reza I know you in ways that most of the world will never know and I’m so glad for that. You have such a kind heart and your sense of humor is undeniably sharp! Can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight. Happy birthday!”
Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa had a big weekend! The former reality star got baptized in Israel. Joanna’s best friend, Traci Szymanski, brought her to Israel for a little bit of spiritual and physical rejuvenation and relaxation. Joanna arrived in Israel and headed straight to the north to be baptized in the Jordan River.
Joanna explained why she wanted to get baptized again as an adult. “I did it because as a baby your parents decide if you will be baptized. As an adult I wanted to confirm my beliefs and to show thanks for my life and everything I have accomplished. I wanted to do it as a cleansing, especially when I am in a very spiritual, special holy place like Israel. It was very powerful. It is a celebration of my life and being thankful and accepting it as an adult and vowing to be a better person.”
Getting baptized and/or spending time in reflection in Israel is popular among the celebrities this summer. Kim Kardashian and Kanye Westtook daughter North to Jerusalem to be baptized, Mariah Careybrought her twins there this summer (along with her billionaire boyfriend James Packer), and dozens of others have flocked there recently.
See the exclusive photos of Joanna’s baptism below.
And so begins the downfall of Draya Michele. Last night’s Basketball Wives LA centered on a girls’ trip helmed by Brandi Maxiell to Santa Barbara. Why, after so, so, so many times of going on these mini-vacays, a knock-down-drag-out fight ensuing, and the inevitable dread that comes from rehashing said trip at the reunion, do these women think this time will be different? Jackie Christie is stirring the pot as fast as she can, and even the girls who vowed to dislike her forever believe every word that comes out of her exaggerating mouth. It’s comedy gold.
In an effort to bring Angel Brinks into the mix, Draya has invited her to come along as someone who can save her from her friends’ drama. Angel is like a mini-Kardashian, and Draya wants to give her the low down on the ladies with whom they will be traveling. She shares that Shaunie O’Neal isn’t keen on strangers infiltrating their group even though Shaunie herself is considered a newbie according to Draya. Next, Draya mean girls Mehgan James. Angel can’t wait for the weekend!

This week’s Real Housewives of New York is all about Sonja Morgan, Sonja Morgan’s fashion show, and Sonja Morgan’s totally unexpected success. And guess who couldn’t be happier about it? Sonja Morgan, of course! Sonja took to her blog today to gush and blush about all of the “support” she’s had in making her dreams of being an International Lifestyle and Luxury Brand a reality. But she doesn’t forget all of those naysayers out there who she owes a big fat “I told you so!” to either. Calling out most of her castmates, Sonja reiterates why she knows what she’s doing. She thinks.
“I am so proud of Sonja Morgan New York,” begins Sonja. “The girls have doubted and criticized me and my team (including my CEO Gaurav and Marketing Director Laura, my apparel partners AJ & BJ) for a long time, implying they were smoke and mirrors. My team is not in this for fancy titles. They want to build a lasting brand as I do. It feels good to be able to show the world what I love to do and that I can produce a collection that I am proud to put my name on. I am so thankful to everyone who helped and believed in me, and I can’t wait to keep adding to the collection.”
