NeNe Leakes turned the tables on Andy Cohen in a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. Nene got Andy to confess who has the say in casting the Real Housewives, whether he only hires Housewives with money and are heading for bankruptcy and so much more. Andy even slams the other "wives" style copycat ripoff shows.
Andy reveals that his favorite Real Housewives franchise is "the one that I'm watching; the one I'm screening. I go all over the map. Atlanta makes me laugh the hardest. It's consistently the funniest, although new York makes me [laugh] too."
The most fashionable franchise is Beverly Hills. "I think Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta have the most fashion." What do you like about BH? "I like seeing their houses. The weather is always great and they're always outside. And it's all roses and hair and.."
NeNe asks, do you have a hand in hiring and firing housewives? "I do". NeNe squawks, "So if anything ever happens to me, I need to come for you? What! are you kidding me?" Andy asks if she seriously knew that or not and she swears she had NO idea.

See what Gretchen Rossi, Kim Kardashian, Joanna Krupa and other reality stars are to this week in our photo gallery.
The photo above (and one in the gallery) of Kim Zolciak is from February, but we stumbled on it this week and they were too fun not to share. All that's missing is a lit ciggy hanging from her mouth and this photo would be Peg Bundy perfection.
Also spotted: Kim Kardashian attended a political event with sister Kourtney. Kendra spent some time with her family (on the red carpet) and Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed some time with Nikki Ferrell. And Bethenny Frankel ran errands in NYC.
WE tv announced today that it has renewed both Kendra On Top and Tamar & Vince for a third season!

Interestingly Sonja defends Avicious MeViva on the case that she's clearly a crazy person of unsound mental standing and therefore we should all be more patient, nice, and sympathetic to her plight. Sonja – really? Try again. Although, yes, Aviva is crazy.
"Everyone really seems to have ganged up on Aviva who is, in my eyes, in a fragile mental and health state," Sonja writes in her Bravo blog.
Our favorite California girls — no offense Beverly Hills! — are back!! The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 is set to premiere on Monday, April 14 at 9pm/8 central and it is shaking up to be a season with a little something different.
With Bravo giving the ax to Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino, and Lydia McLaughlin leaving after only one season, there are some new girls on the block. Shannon Beador is a housewife and mother of three with her husband David. Kentucky native, Lizzie Rovsek is a former pageant girl and Miss Kentucky, married to Christian, mother of two boys and she owns her own swimwear company.
While apparently not comfortable posing without any clothes on the momager extraordinaire does not mind posing and posting swimsuit shots to her Twitter and Instagram accounts with hopes of inspiring other 50-something women to not be ashamed of their bodies. "I love to work out, and I love to feel like I'm in shape, and I like to feel good about myself," she said. "Like, last summer, I posted those bikini photos because I thought it was so inspirational for someone in their 50s to have some motivation and say, 'Wow, you know, anyone can at least try to put a bathing suit on.'"
Kris Jenner went on to squash some more rumors surrounding the lives of the Kardashians.
