Don’t count NeNe Leakes and her acting career out just yet! Our favorite Southern gal may need to move back to L.A. again for a familiar acting gig. And no, we are not talking about the return of The New Normal — although wouldn’t that be great?? NeNe was so good (well, the whole show was wonderful) on the Ryan Murphy produced sitcom, but NBC only gave it one season.
And no, we are also not talking about filming the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Because that is not acting, right? (wink, wink)
Nope, NeNe is returning to LA to reprise her role in another Ryan Murphy hit TV show. But just how long will she need to stay?
On this week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann are packing for the the big surgery to be had in Miami. They’re going over their checklist with all the kids and Sweetie Hughes. I have to say the pair of pink pants that Kim is wearing are quite possibly the tightest pants I’ve seen in a LONG time. Ariana and Brielle are reluctantly listening to Kim bark out orders while wearing headbands that are cute but also not cute. I can’t decide. It’s like trying to make fetch work – and I’m not feeling it.
Anyway, Kim is excited about her new boobs and tummy even thought the girls reassure her she is beautiful regardless of any enhancing that she wants to get done. Kim’s turning her hernia operation in an episode of Extreme Makeover, but hell, I don’t blame her for knocking out the hernia thing and packing new boobs and a tight tummy in the same punch. She’s certainly efficient!
“Man is made of such a seemly shape, that friend or foe is not discerned by face; then hard it is the wickeds’ wiles to scape, since that the bad to mask with honest grace.” – Geoffrey Whitney
Amber continued, “If Whitney could reach into my soul and pull out exactly what is there, he would have used these words. I don’t know who to trust – who is my friend, who is my enemy, what are everyone’s intentions? This is a truly awful feeling that, clearly, many have felt throughout history based on so many literary works on the subject. What is the driving force behind our actions? How do we come to our perceptions of situations? It all can be profoundly attributed to the interactions between genetics, social factors, and environment. We take from our experience good attributes as well as negative attributes such as, weakness, insecurity, jealous, hatred, and even a lack of empathy.”
Million Dollar ListingLos Angeles got some new blood this season in the form of our favorite new Brits and Bond Street Partners, James Harris and David Parnes. Despite being well-versed in luxury real estate, the new guys on the block had to learn a hard lesson this week when they ventured to Venice.
While the new guys were hitting the beach, the real estate agent we all love to hate, Josh Altman, was learning that planning a wedding takes a little more time, energy and preparation than he thought.
I feel bad reporting this, because I know Kandi Burruss put her heart and soul (and her relationship to Mama Joyce) into writing and performing in A Mother’s Love, but unfortunately the tour has just been canceled after one week! Even worse – it’s not Kandi’s fault! Apparently the promoter hired to promote the tour wasn’t particularly equipped to handle the demand.
FunkyDineva, a friend of Kandi’s and a member of the cast, reveals that the promoter was allegedly “cash poor” and that paychecks were bouncing on the first week! After seeing A Mother’s Love on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, it seems it was the promoter who approached Kandi with the idea of a 30 city US tour with the hopes of eventually landing on Broadway. Unfortunately the promoter apparently didn’t have the resources, nor the cash, to pull off a huge touring production with multiple cast members. Nor, it seemed, was advertising up to snuff so ticket sales suffered.
Is MTV pulling the plug on Kail Lowry, Chelsea Houska, Leah Calvert, and Jenelle as promised? Yeah, NO. “Producers are getting ready for season 6,” a source revealed yesterday. “They are calling the girls to make sure everyone is on board.” Oh please, like any of them would say no to MTV money.
