Oh good gracious! Those ladies of Atlanta are at it yet again. This time Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Mama Kim Zolciak is telling cast mate Cynthia Bailey’s husband what’s what.

Now I am rarely Team Kim, except when singing “The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing” in my car and wishing I had a few luscious wigs to sport, but I think that in this case, she has a reason to be angry. And not just regular mad… Twitter mad. We all know it’s the tweets that bring the heat.

Kim took to Twitter, the rich man’s crap talking mecca, to remind Cynthia’s husband Peter Thomas that she has more important things to do than traipse off to South Africa… and those things have nothing to do with racism. Peter went as far as to insinuate that Kim’s absence on the ladies’ RHOA trip had more to do with the fact she had issues with other races and less to do with the fact she had two daughters and a newborn son at home. With her new husband Kroy Biermann away at training camp, shouldn’t Kim have figured out a way to go on the trip so as not to offend Peter, a househusband notorious for stirring up drama? Maybe Sweetie could have baby-sat. Is the man serious?

Apparently, Peter believed that the fact the women’s destination was South Africa was a major hang up for Kim. He alluded that had the trip been to some European destination, Kim would have bent over backwards to find child care. Oh no he di-int!

Not one to take these accusations lying down (although she probably was, because Kim rivals me in the ‘lounging’ department #imnotlazyimtired) Kim blasted her co-star’s husband on the Twitterverse saying, “Peter is so ignorant!! Kj was 7 weeks old, I was breastfeeding and Kroy was gone at football camp! Sooo Peter can kiss my ass!!!”

No word yet on whether Peter is sticking to his guns or if he’ll back pedal with the best of them. The man is infamous (on this Bravo franchise, at least) for speaking first and thinking second — if at all, so who knows if Kim will get an apology or another round of haterade from the outspoken restauranteur.

Not that Kim has time to worry about such trivial things, especially with her spin-off debut Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding right around the corner. Do you have spring fever or are you just itching to see the wig-a-licious wedding spectacular? I have both, but I’m leaning more towards the latter.

Taking to that trusty Twitter account yet again, Kim tweeted a curious fan that “Don’t be Tardy for the Wedding airs on Bravo in April!!!” While Bravo is remaining mum on when the world will get to see the Zolciak-Biermann nuptials, if anyone has an inside track to when the train wreck fabulousness that occurred on 11.11.11 will be premiering, it’s everyone’s favorite auto-tuned bride.

Perhaps the Bravo machine wants to declare the news for all to hear via Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Mr. and Mrs. Big Poppa Biermann will be joining Andy in the clubhouse in January 29. Jokes aside, I do think Kim has reigned it in this season and I for one am excited to see her so happy.

Meanwhile, another Atlanta housewife is ready to make a bigger name for herself. In an interview with Sister2Sister, Kandi Burruss discusses her own spin-off Kandi Factory and why the show’s format is near and dear to the musician’s heart.

Kandi is excited to show the world what she really does for a living on her new show Kandi Factory which premieres (where else?) on Bravo March 4. The series will follow the Grammy winning adult toy purveyor as she works to make two unknown singers into the next great talent. As someone who has worked with the likes of Usher, TLC and Alicia Keys, Kandi certainly knows what she’s doing.

She tells the site, “Bravo is giving me the opportunity to do what I do, on television. I’m very excited about that.” She continues, “Musically, that’s near and dear to my heart. That’s what I do. I love being creative.”

Not only does Kandi have a slew of number one hits under her belt, but she also did what many would have deemed impossible if they hadn’t witnessed it themselves. She wrote and produced two songs for cast mate Kim Zolciak and made her into an iTunes sensation. If you’ve heard Kim sing, you know that is no small feat! Given her knowledge of the industry as well as her ability to work magic on the vocally challenged, it’s no wonder she’s secured her own spin-off.

Kandi reveals, “Ever since I did the situation with Kim, people come up to me on the street every day. Now, I actually have an opportunity to do it for normal people for real. We’re going to pick two for the episode and one may be a diamond in the rough and one may not be able to sing hardly at all. We’re going to show you what we do. We have our whole team. It’s not just me.”

“I will put together the team to transform this person into someone hot. Can I do it?” asks Kandi. “I made the statement on one of the episodes that I can make anybody hot, and in my mind, I really do believe that. But whether it’s true or not is going to be left for you to decide.”

And decide I’m sure we will. I know I’ll be tuning in on March 4 for the new series!

I will also be tuning in tonight at 9ET as the ladies head to South Africa. On the 12th episode this season titled “South Africa: Just Like Home,” the ladies arrive in Cape Town, where a relaxing yacht ride turns ugly when Marlo confronts Sheree about not inviting her to a party. In Atlanta, Kim finds it difficult to adjust to Kroy’s absence and taking care of her brood on her own. A preview clip is below.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S TWEETS TO PETER? SHOULD SHE HAVE GONE ON THE TRIP? WILL YOU BE WATCHING DON’T BE TARDY FOR THE WEDDING? KANDI FACTORY?

“I’m an alcoholic,” are the not so shocking words being uttered by Kim Richards in a newly released clip from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2 reunion.

Today, Bravo released the first previews for the reunion which will not only be dramatic, but will also be in three parts. While Kim was unable to attend the reunion taping, due to her recent stint in rehab, she did manage to do a sit down interview with Andy Cohen during which she finally admits her drinking problem.

The dramatic preview for the RHOBH 3-part reunion is below. Part I airs Monday, January 30 on Bravo at 9/8c. Part II airs Feb. 6, and Part III airs Feb. 13.

Kim’s substance abuse issues first came to light early last year after her sister Kyle Richards revealed her alcoholism during their big limo fight.

Last week it was reported that Taylor Armstrong was definitely returning for the third season of , but like they say on Project Runway, “One day you’re in, the next day you’re out!”

RadarOnline is reporting that Bravo is seeing the light, listening to the fans and possibly writing Lady Armstrong that severance check!

“Taylor is absolutely freaked out at the possibility of not returning for a third season,” a source reveals. “Even though there has been a ratings bump this season because of the suicide, Taylor knows the criticism she has endured because of the tragedy. Taylor needs this job, she doesn’t have any other source of income, period.”

“She is fearful that producers of the show are going to cut her because she is seen as a liability to the show.” In light of the recent drama surrounding Taylor she may have a point. Additionally, Bravo structured the entire second season of RHOBH around her storyline to great fan dissatisfaction.

Taylor is defending herself against the recent rumors of being fired. “It’s not true,” she told RumorFix. “We have not even been picked up for season three.” While appearing on the Today Show on Tuesday, Andy Cohen announced there will be no cast changes and Bravo has made no decisions about season three. I find that hard to believe in light of the fan reactions to this season!

Finally, Taylor’s memoir Hiding From Reality is due in stores next month and I know y’all are waiting with bated breath to hear what she has to say; so you’re in luck! In order to drum up sales and excitement for the tell-all, Us Weekly is releasing some of the more gory excerpts.

Among her shocking allegations, she insists Russell was going to force her to abort her baby if it wasn’t a girl! “Russell wanted to keep the baby only if it was a girl. Because he already had two boys. At five weeks I took a blood test and mailed in the sample to learn the gender, and fate, of our baby.”

Taylor claims Russell controlled every aspect of her life and she constantly lived in fear of being recorded. “I always assumed I was being recorded in the car and at home,” Taylor’s book reads. “I was always careful to make sure the content of my conversations was very clear.”

The reality star insists her attempts to fight back made matters worse and that Russell’s abuse was calculated. “He would grab my hair and bang my head against the side of the car between the two door. Or against the glass of the passenger window while he was driving, because it made his point to me but didn’t leave a visible mark.”

Asserting that Russell believed he would kill her, Taylor claims he blamed her for his violent outbursts. “Don’t ever do that again because I almost killed you,” Russell reportedly told Taylor. “One of these days I’m afraid I’m going to kill you.”

Taylor realized she needed to leave Russell after his abuse caused her a dislocated cornea that could have left permanent danger. “Hearing that I was in danger of having a lifelong deformity from something that Russell had done to me was enough to finally snap me out of the spell Russell had over me,” she writes. “When my assistant and I got home from my doctor’s appointment, I told her to pack a bag for Kennedy.”

Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within hits stores February 7th — just after RHOBH finishes airing!

IS TAYLOR A LIABILITY FOR BRAVO? WILL SHE BE FIRED? THOUGHTS ON THE SHOCKING ALLEGATIONS SHE MAKES ABOUT HER MARRIAGE?

Last night’s season finale episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought us back to the show we know and love with an over-the-top wedding featuring all the trimmings those of us in the real world could never afford. It was beautiful, it was captivating, it was pink, and most importantly, it was drama free! I think it was a perfect season finale — until the last fifteen minutes, which I’ll pretend never happened.

It’s the day before Pandora’s pinksplosion fantasy wedding. As planned, the Vanderfabulous-Todds have converted part of their tennis court into the wedding site complete with a massive white tent that ensconces every surface in dangling crystals. While everything is carrying on as scheduled, Kevin Lee is apparently out of town! Kevin’s assistant is there in his absence and while she lacks Kevin’s bling, bling, she seems far more efficient.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim got ready for Kroy to leave for training camp and the rest of the ladies planned their trip to South Africa! NeNe decided to really stir up the drama by sneak inviting Marlo, and telling nary a soul, but Cynthia. And, oh my, were the ladies surprised, but not thrilled when Marlo joined them at the departure gate!

Things begin at Marlo‘s house, and ok, call me crazy, but I love the decor and the color scheme. NeNe is impressed that Marlo read Kim and Kandi the riot act at Cynthia‘s agency opening and definitely didn’t back down. On the tour, NeNe discovers Marlo has a full security system installed in her house, which she can monitor from her bedroom! Who is she, Drita D’avanzio? Is she mistressed to the mob in secret?

Shawntel Newton

Being an actual contestant on The Bachelor is simply not humiliating enough for some folks. Others have to extend their .5 seconds of fame and come back to the show, via their spin-offs, or if you’re Shawntel Newton, you can return in a surprise visit.

In an interview with People, Shawntel explains what the hell she was doing there as well as her very special connection via sexting (er, I mean, “Twitter fling”) to current bachelor Ben Flajnik. Plus, how she dealt with the abuse backlash she received from the other contestants!

On why she decided to meet Ben on the show, instead of meeting him for a drink like a normal person:

“I didn’t want to go back on national television, but I wanted to at least meet Ben in person. This was the only chance I had. [He could] be engaged in a couple of months. It was worth trying. It wasn’t like I was in love with this guy, but I thought there could be something … I didn’t think anyone was in love yet so I didn’t think I was stepping on too many toes.”

On some of the not-so-nice reactions she received from the actual contestants:

I knew I was walking into a lion’s den. I expected going in to have the girls a little confused and upset with me. … Insecurities came out and nothing could have prepared me [for] the reaction [I got]. Hearing girls saying I’m uglier in person and have big thighs and calling me dumpster trash and a b—- – was intense. I was hurt. Jaclyn told me she wanted to punch [me] in the face. Courtney was the most harsh. When I got sent home, she laughed and said, “Sayonara.” Defending myself for two hours was exhausting. A girl can only take so much. I snuck off to the bathroom and I cried.

On her very intimate Twitter relationship with Ben:

I made it very clear on Twitter I had a crush on him and wanted to get to know him [during] Ashley’s season. He sent me a private message and we exchanged numbers. We [said] we should meet in person but he couldn’t be seen in public. It never happened.

On how she thought her surprise visit would do:

I was very confident walking in, because I knew he felt something for me, too. I really thought he would keep me and at least take me on a date to see if there was something. I would have liked that a whole lot better than talking to him for two minutes, getting picked on and then being sent home.

On who’s wearing the pants on the Bachelor set:

I think the biggest influence [on his decision] was Courtney. She basically gave him an ultimatum – “If you keep Shawntel, I’m out” – and he’s making it clear he’s head over heels for her. I think he ends up choosing her.

In other news, Bravo’s own Andy Cohen also made a shocking revelation when he told the HollywoodLife he was once approached to be The Bachelor!

“I got a call once years ago before anybody knew who I was,” Andy revealed. “My picture was in W magazine, and the producers of The Bachelor called. They were calling to see if I would ever be interested in going through the casting process.”

Andy err of course turned ABC down for obvious reasons. “I said, ‘You are barking up the wrong tree,’” he stated. “‘Unless The Bachelor is going in a different direction …”

Last night’s episode of the Real Trainwrecks of Beverly Hills contained a whole lotta drama that belongs on a different show. Lisa opened SUR, Kim had some sort of ongoing cray-cray with Ken, whom she is now leaving, and Taylor begged the ladies to love her in what I’m sure she believes is a good rendition of Sally Fields’ ‘You really like me…’ Oscar speech.

Things start off with Kyle getting ready for the SUR launch party with her eldest daughter Farrah. After chasing Portia around, Kyle lets a bored seeming Farrah know that Taylor has left Russell and that she and Kim are still fighting. Farrah wonders why Kyle hasn’t figured out how to manage her relationship with Kim already. Why is Farrah more mature than Kyle?

Meanwhile Lisa is putting the finishing touches on SUR and running around in a panic micromanaging every detail before ditching Ken to finish the job and blowing out the door without so much as a kiss. Poor Ken will have to wait until next year for a cuddle. Lisa needs to accept her life is on camera and not be embarrassed to show affection to her husband.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta it was all about roots. Phaedra decided to plan a cast trip to Africa so the ladies could learn about their ancestry and Kim and NeNe met face to face for the first time in months and decided it should probably be the last.

Things start out with Kim hauling her infant to the gun range. Safety first! Kroy has decided Kim should learn how to shoot and get a gun. I guess she sometimes has to deal with a rampant moose. At first Kim is nervous, but then she gets into being a pistol packin’ mama! Kim gets a pink 9mm and while she doesn’t love having a gun, she’s into getting something pink. Next I am sure she will wrangle a LV gun case.

Cynthia and Peter are meeting Apollo and Phaedra for a double date to work things out following the husband’s altercation at Kim’s babyshower. Phaedra declares it is a “powder in your panties” kinda day, basically a typical hot summer day in the south. God I love southern summers. And friction, what friction? Because everyone is getting along great.
