Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was all about changes, forgiveness and getting what you deserve. Sheree pulled a Tamra Barney and threw a drink on her ex-husband, Phaedra and Kandi begged forgiveness something desperate from Mama Joyce, who is both livid and embarrassed that reDICKulous appeared last week. Oh yeah, and we met Marlo Hampton. She has a husky voice I wasn’t expecting!
Things start out with everybody’s favorite southern bell doing a stop and drop apology by bringing Kandi an ‘I shouldn’ t have invited a disgusting porny stripper to your birthday party in front of your mama’ cake. Phaedra’s been giving out a lot of “I’m sorry” gifts lately, hasn’t she? According to Kandi her mama is still mad and won’t answer the phone!
The ladies are still confused that NeNe “former stripper” Leakes flew the coop without even saying good-bye. Apparently she couldn’t locate Kandi in the crowd since she took her eyeballs out. Phaedra is especially perplexed given that NeNe used to show her cervix for a quarter back in the day. Um, I’m pretty sure she was a stripper not a gynecological test subject, Phae!

According to the latest NeNe Leakes is not about to let Kim Zolciak one-up her in the spin-off department (remember how upset she got over Tardy For The Party!) and she is demanding her own show. With Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding — Kim’s one-season spin-off currently in the works to chronicle her wedding to Kroy Biermann — Star Magazine is reporting that the always big-hearted and supportive Ms. Leakes is beside herself with jealousy!
“She’s furious that Kim got her own show and she didn’t,” a source tells Star. Apparently NeNe has become quite the diva (oh, really?) ever since her rather volatile stint on Celebrity Apprentice. “She’s saying she’s too big for RHOA, and Bravo doesn’t pay her enough,” the source claims. The source adds that NeNe erroneously believes RHOA will “crumble” if she leaves and the show is “all about her.”
“NeNe has told friends if she doesn’t get what she wants, she will quit!” Would the fans really mind that? “She thinks she’s Madonna,” the source reveals which is the most laugh out loud, pee my pants quote I’ve ever heard from a “source”!
In fact, on a recent episode of WWHL, NeNe expected the star-treatment with a full list of over-the-top demands! “She insisted on her own, very expensive make-up artist, a stretch limo, and the presidential suite during her stay,” the insider asserts, adding that NeNe also requested Cristal Champagne but was rejected! BRAHAHAHAHA!
And while she was the consummate professional (ha!) on stage, things were quite the opposite behind the scenes. “She acted nice to host Andy Cohen while shooting but laid into him afterward and said she wants her own show,” the source alleges. Luckily for all of us, the mag is reporting that the Bravo execs are not likely to accommodate her given her recent behaviors! And in a recent interview Andy stated there are no plans for Kim’s spin-off to be permanent as he likes her on the “mother-ship.” Although if NeNe and Kim continue to refuse to film together things are going to get very interesting!
Upon being questioned by fans about the status of her new home, Sheree Tweeted: “not done yet, really just getting started! It’s been quite a handful… everyone’s on their own schedule & seem to have an agenda.” Basically, the house is in exactly the same condition as it was during filming!
The property that viewers have seen getting demolished over the last few episodes of RHOA was indeed purchased with the intent to build a new home — but it was not purchased by Sheree! Her mother, Thelma Ferguson, actually purchased the original house in a bank foreclosure for around $300,000 in Dec 2010, due to Sheree’s recent financial struggles. Sheree’s mother, Thelma is a successful author and MBA educated business woman who seems quite different from her gold-digging daughter. A copy of the deed is listed below.
If you remember Sheree had big hopes of getting a seven-figure divorce settlement from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield who owns a recording studio and is a retired Atlanta Falcons player. Sheree ended up getting a mere $1M and a portion of his pensions. Instead of paying the attorneys that defended her all the way to the GA Supreme Court, she purchased an Aston-Martin (featured on last season’s show) which was then seized!
As the original home on the Fulton County property was demolished it is now an empty lot on which Sheree owes quite a hefty mortgage. In addition to the rent on her townhouse (which is rumored to be paid by Bravo). How is Sheree financing all of this? She is apparently paying the mortgage on this now empty lot with the money she makes as CEO of her own company. Yes — I burst out laughing too, because Sheree has incorporated herself! According to the State of Georgia, Sheree is the owner, founder, and Chief Executive (and sole employee, it seems) of Sheree’ Corporation, which may or may not still be in business. Oh, ladies — just live within your means!
Also, interesting is the tale of Kandi Burruss‘ two birthday parties. While we all watched with horror as reDICKulous performed a dip n dick at Kandi’s birthday party last week, it appears that was merely a made-for-TV party arranged by Bravo! It turns out Kandi actually had another party which appeared classy, sophisticated and stripper-free!
Kandi’s real (re: Bravo-free) party took place at Straits Restaurant in Atlanta and featured quite an impressive guest list, including former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell, Mama Joyce and Kandi’s daughter. The only Housewives-related guests were Phaedra Parks and Derek J (Kandi’s hairdresser)! Some photos of Kandi and Phaedra at Kandi’s real party are below!
Finally, a new episode of RHOA debuts tonight and we meet possible new Housewife Marlo Hampton, who happens to be dating NeNe’s ex-fling Charles Grant (isn’t she still married?). Cynthia Bailey continues to have issues with her family and her husband Peter Thomas. And Sheree confronts her ex-husband over child support issues. A preview of the new episode is below.
Episode five of Real Housewives of Atlanta airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST DRAMA? DO YOU THINK NENE WILL GET HER OWN SHOW? WILL CHATEAU SHEREE EVER COME TO FRUITION? ARE YOU SURPRISED KANDI HAD TWO PARTIES?

Yes the NeNe is Tweetin mad that people are calling her a hypocrite for leaving Kandi’s party in light of dip ‘n’ dick when she herself did a lil dancing back in the day!
See while NeNe pretended to be scandalized, reDICKulous actually called into WWHL‘s Aftershow and revealed he had danced for NeNe at least three times prior to Kandi’s birthday — including when she introduced him at Miami Pride Day! Pull those eyes out of the rented Birkin, Ms. Leakes — you are called out! Taking it to the Tweets, NeNe claims it just wasn’t the time or the place for ‘DICK’s show — especially with Mama Joyce present!
NeNe is of course disputing a relationship with reDICKulous, Tweeting Andy: “I host lots of gay events & introduce whoever they tell me 2! I’ve never had a lap dance from any male stripper!” So no one has any pictures to prove her wrong? And she takes issue with how sexy (re: straight up porno) reDICKulous’ act got!
“We don’t do no ish like that @ Wanda’s Playhouse. That was very sick & perverted ! #noclass<Right,” she fired back against allegations that she knew reDICKulous from her own stripping days! And putting her boss on blast, NeNe wondered if Andy’s mom (who texted him that the display was “disgusting”) would watch a strip tease! “@BravoAndy would u b @ a party wit ur mom, aunt or people u do business & watch a stripper suck his…. N front of every1?”
“People r so shady! I wonder if @BravoAndy would have watched him wit his mom & co-workers there,”she continued! Well, Andy responded agreeing with The Nen! “You know that Evelyn would’ve grounded me<Right! For life LOL,” he replied. NeNe wants to know why all the focus was on her since it was Kandi’s party and Phaedra who brought the “gift” — all she did was hightail it out of there and drive home blind! Safety first! A screen shot of some of Nene’s tweets are below -
As for why Kim Zolciakdid not attend Kandi’s reDICKulous birthday party she Tweeted that she was “very pregnant” and gave birth a few days later! So it had nothing at all to do with refusing to film with NeNe?
Speaking of Kim, Sweetie Hughes, Kim’s long suffering former assistant is confirming she no longer works for the Wigziack-Biermann fam! Sweetie verified the split on Twitter, responding, “yes it’s true” when asked by a fan. Sweetie did not give any details about what may have lead to the dissolution of the relationship. Hopefully she just found a different job, but they are still friends!
Also, no word if Sweetie will be featured on Kim’s spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which premieres this spring on Bravo and Senor Cohen promises is “a lot of fun.”
“It’s a totally different vibe [than Bethenny Getting Married], he told WetPaint. “I was talking to Bethenny [Frankel]about it the other day. I was like, ‘You are going to love this show!’ Kim is Kim and Bethenny is Bethenny. It’s like, they’re from two different planets.”
If you’re expecting Kim’s permanent departure from the wrath of NeNe, Andy assures us that’s not the plan! “We’re doing this limited series, but I like Kim on the mothership.”

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST RHOA DRAMA? IS NENE OVER-REACTING OR DOES SHE MAKE SOME VALID POINTS? WHY DO YOU THINK SWEETIE IS NO LONGER WORKING FOR KIM?
Reunited and it feels so….. Hot! Part one of the first ever (and probably last ever) Millionaire Matchmaker reunion aired last night, and not only did the beloved Andy Cohen put Patti in the hot seat, but he reunited some of Patti’s most memorable clients from the past five seasons. All the clients and Patti were looking hot, hot, hot! The heat continued as Andy dived into the whole WWHL fiasco.
In case you forgot, Patti Stanger said some unfortunate comments on her appearance earlier this year on Andy’s late-night show. She claimed gays cannot commit, and Jewish men lie. Well, doesn’t she realize her boss is both of those? In order to save her job, Patti backpedals claiming she could not sleep for days (or eat?) after she offended so many people. She does major damage control telling Andy it was her idea to even set up gays on TV — no credit to Andy Cohen? Andy, not quick to let off the heat, calls her out saying she makes generalizations a.k.a. stereotypes! Let’s not sugar coat it, but Patti continues on her self-reflection stating she wants to soften up her image. Good luck with that.

The network promises past clients (from all five seasons) will return to dish on relationships and someone will have a special surprise. The reunion will be a two part special with part I airing tonight at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT and part II airing next Tuesday, December 6th At 9 pm ET/PT.
The press release states “Andy Cohen sits down with Patti for the first-ever reunion special. Visited by some of Patti’s most memorable clients, including Hello Kitty fanatic Robin Kassner, who offered to buy her date a Maserati; Stacy Kessler, who Patti accused of having a mid-life crisis; Zagros Bigvand, who didn’t follow Patti’s rule of “no sex before monogamy;” retired NFL star turned ESPN-commentatorMarcellus Wiley, “Million Dollar Listing” star Madison Hildebrand, and more.”
A bit surprising because ratings for the show have taken a dip this year, but by having on the craziest guests from all five seasons, it will definitely make for a must-see reunion!
The reunion part I airs tonight (9/8c). A preview clip featuring the infamousShaunaRaisch is below!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, things got ridiculous in a big way. I mean big. It was a penis spectacular as the talk was of men, circumcision and some of Phaedra’s more eccentric clients (and I don’t mean Bobbi Brown!). Thank goodness for censorship bars!
Things start out with Phaedra begging Kim’s forgiveness for the baby shower blow out between Peter and Apollo. Kim succinctly tells us that next time ex-cons and ass holes are off the guest list! Phaedra comes a calling with a huge gift and is instantly forgiven – she could have told Kim Kroy was to blame so long as she brought a present. Ok, actually Phaedra apologized — admitting she was embarrassed by Apollo — and Kim accepted. There’s apparently been no word and NO retail apology from Cynthia despite her geriatric husband acting crazy. The ladies talk labor and Phaedra was as crazy as a vampire in sunlight. Love it!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I came to the conclusion that I am just so burned out on the Taylor, Taylor, Taylor show. And this show in general. Perhaps it’s a symptom of my profession that I watch too much Housewives!
Things pick up where they left off with Tea Party Part Deux and Camille confronting Taylor about her allegations of abuse. Camille is confused about how Taylor expects her friends to be all ecstatic about her husband when she is telling them he abuses her, yet no one sees any signs of said abuse – physical or otherwise.
Taylor calls Camille “uncool” for outing her marital issues, but Camille seems nonplussed and continues asking Taylor about the inconsistencies going on. Then, Camille pulls a total Dynasty diva moment and storms out! I wish there would be an exciting and frivolous Dynasty-style catfight on this show already. Full-scale hair pulling, sequined gown ripping, destroying of manicured lawns, all out bitch-queen catfight. Can we get on scripting this, Bravo? kthx!

Yes – that’s right – five nights of Andy Cohen! Senor Cohen the quirky, silly, master manipulator Executive Vice President of Programming who is behind the Housewives franchises and shows such as, Top Chef will be expanding his late-night variety show to air Sunday through Thursday starting this January.
“It’s a new world and a whole lot of people are doing a lot of things at once,” Andy excitedly described the decision to expand. He was so excited he announced the new programming on last night’s show as his Mazel!
So why did Bravo decide to amp up WWHL’s air-time? According to data, Cohen et al garners more viewers than other late-night cable shows — including Chelsea Handler and Conan O’Brien! In fact, for female viewers aged 18-to-49, Andy’s show has “among the strongest ratings for late-night cable shows,” averaging about 1.2 million viewers with 720,000 being in the 18-49 year-old-age group. What is significant about those numbers is viewers in that group attract “the most advertising money.”
“The dynamics of where late night is now are changing,” says executive producer, Michael Davies. With the addition of social media and online videos, plus audience interaction, WWHL was among the first to incorporate those elements into TV. “Andy comes at this not from a background in comedy but from a background in broadcasting,” Mr. Davies explains. Adding that Andy’s talent for conversation skills, along with the inclusion of cocktails gives the show a whole different dynamic than other late-night shows!
As a result of his new job, Andy will be “giving up his executive vice president title, though he will remain in charge of program and talent development for the network.” Oh no!!! I wonder if that means he’ll no longer be hosting the reunions. One could only hope…
WWHL will air Sunday-Thursday starting January 2 at 11PM.
We do have to wonder if the show will be able to survive five nights a week without having the Housewives series leading into it. Plus will viewers continue to tune in to the episodes without Bravolebrities? Guess we shall see.
