Well, I never thought I'd see the day that a Real Housewife of any sort graced the pages of Vogue Magazine but apparently hell froze over when I wasn't looking and pigs have replaced planes as the flying objects in the sky, because Ms. NeNe Leakes has landed herself in the mag!
Appearing with the cast of The New Normal, her new hit sitcom, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star poses next to co-star Ellen Barkin looking fantastic. Mad props, Ms. Neen and in the words of RuPaul: "Werq!" Dare I say – does this make her the most successful Housewife beating out even Bethenny Frankel?
Could it be? Am I dreaming? Is a reality star actually taking responsibility for his actions? I simply can't believe it. Just can't. Flipping Out'sJeff Lewis is the last guy I would expect to be so frank when talking about his friends, co-workers, and boyfriend, Jenni Pulos, Zoila Chavez, and Gage Edward. Even more so, he's the last person I would imagine would watch this season and actually reflect…and on his own behavior at that! Perhaps he should lead his own self-help group!
After watching part of the season, Jeff admitted that stress may have caused him to act out in an unbecoming manner. He flat out says that from a personal growth standpoint, this definitely wasn't his best season. I'm sorry…what? It's almost as if he's speaking a different language! What happened to blaming everyone around you for how you're portrayed? Duh, that is Reality 101!
Yeah, you have to love when someone becomes all about self-help. It's even more entertaining when that person is Chad Johnson. Don't get me wrong, I have thought for a long time that Chad is a total d-bag, and his domestic incident with Basketball Wives'Evelyn Lozada certainly exacerbated that. Bless him. It appears that Mr. Ochocinco is learning a lot from calf tattoos and shame.
The former NFL star–and former husband, for that matter–is taking steps to improve his self-image temper. Taking a page from every violent celebrity's playbook, Chad has enrolled in anger management counseling. Good for him?
They're rich, they're fabulous – wait, no that's only some of them. Anyway Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns! In its third season Bravo welcomes new Housewives and brings back some of the old favorites. Some we want to see back (Lisa, Lisa, Lisa!) and some… well yeah, we're a little less excited about.
Well, they're back and they're down one blonde wig! That's right Real Housewives of Atlanta returns Nov 4th featuring two new Housewives and no Kim Zolciak! At least not in the official cast photo.
Bravo just announced the return of its most popular franchise (yes – it beats Jersey) and there are some exciting new ventures on the horizons. On-screen besties NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey are both back. As are Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss. As previously leaked (in what is the worst kept secret is Atlanta) Kenya Moore joins the cast. And the other new Housewife is for-real Atlanta socialite Porsha Stewart!
Surprisingly missing is of course Kim! Who is not included in the official cast photo, but is listed as a Housewife. Rumors were abound that she was basically non-existant during filming because of her pregnancy and the other women started protesting her lack of involvement. Rumor has it this spawned Bravo to reduce her role in the series. Kim hasn't been tweeting about the new release date. Perhaps this means her spin-off is a permanent deal and she'll be lessening her role as a Housewife in exchange for her role as a housewife.
NeNe was all to happy too announce on twitter that she was the "The only original standing. That should tell you a lot." I see she's let go of grudges. "Big surprises coming this season on the housewives! Tune n & get the truth! If they don't show it, I'll tell ya!" she also wrote.

The Shahs of Sunset is set to return in December and they've shed some pounds – and I'm not just talking about MJ's trimmed down frame. It seems that wannabe-playah Sammy Younai is not returning for season 2, according to Tamara Tattles!
I was completely into Shahs from episode one – the glitzy getaways, the drunken Vegas romps, the tazer guns and rage issues, but I just could NOT warm up to Sammy. He came across as fake and he tried too hard to be interesting. I would've had more respect if he hadn't acted so smarmy and been a little more humble. (Remember that blind date where he thought he was too good for the hot girl?)
In a sit-down with Hollywood Life, Alexia Echevarria confesses that Karent just irked her from the very first moment. Yikes! “I think the one that is [crawling under my skin] is Karent,” Alexia shares.
“You’ve haven’t had the pleasure to meet her but I’m sure she’ll do the same thing to you. In episode one, you don’t really see it, but I knew her from before. She gave me a very cold greeting so I took it very personally. This was my first time out in six months and I saw her with her smile … and it did bother me because she did know me,” Alexia adds.
Other ladies have dished that Karent causes a lot of drama this season – and apparently she's also invading the non-reality world with her chaos. Remember how Lindsay Lohan ran someone over in NYC on Wednesday night? If you watched Anderson Live while were live-blogging the show yesterday, you got to hear an indepth discussion about from TMZ's Harvey Levin.
