On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, new friendships were formed and relationships tested their boundaries as Peter and Cynthia struggled in their marriage and Phaedra and Apollo came together for the purpose of a new family business. Kim spends the whole episode annoyed that she has to parent her teenaged daughter – cause you know she has more important things to worry about like her 65 thousand gaudy-a$$ sofas. Does she feel bad every time she makes her husband move Big Poppa’s crap around?
Things start out in Phaedra’s kitchen where she is talking to her mom about opening her funeral home, Funerals Worth Dying For or Fabulous Funerals by Phaedra. Phaedra wants to leave a legacy for her son and thinks a funeral home is a way to do so. Isn’t she a lawyer – Ayden can’t take over the firm? Anyways, Phaedra is envisioning events, not funerals and her plan is to “throw ‘em in the ground with a bang!” There’s only one problem – Apollo has no interest in the mortuary business. No interest at all. Phaedra decides since he likes driving and is strong he can pick up the bodies and transport them to the mortuary. In fact, he can swap out going to the gym for lifting bodies since it’s such good exercise.

We’re back in Atlanta tonight after a long hiatus! In the meantime the drama didn’t slow down for the holidays for our southern belles of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Keeping herself busy and gainfully employed, singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss has officially added purveyor of self-pleasure to her resume and launched her sex toy line. Also, gleefully branching out from her day job as main drama starter du jour on RHOA is NeNe Leakes whose recent guest spots on Glee have launched her career and her ego.
Speaking to Naughty But Nice Rob of The Huffington Post, Kandi gave him the deets of her newest venture: Bedroom Kandi. Oh, how clever #not. Her most proud accomplishment is the melding of two of her favorite things: music and masturbation with the launch of a music activated vibrator. Off topic — but did I really just use the word “masturbation” at work? Wow.
“They are happiness and joy,” Kandi said of her new line. “We have one button if you choose you can connect it to your stereo or mp3 [player], iPod or whatever and that vibrates to whatever song is playing on the stereo system.”
And just in case you want to make a purchase to spice up your alone time, Kandi advises on how to pick the perfect vibrator. “This is how you tell if it’s a good vibrator or not,” Kandi describes. “You tell how strong it is by the tip of your nose. Most people like them as gifts because it’s different. It’s great and it’s wireless and rechargeable — no batteries needed.” Well good to know, good to know… See the video of Kandi’s appearance on Rob’s show below!
As for Kandi’s spinoff show with Bravo, titled ‘The Kandi Factory‘ Bravo announced over the weekend that it will premiere on March 4! The show follows Kandi as she attempts to turn two music hopefuls into pop stars! Hey, if she can do it with Kim Zolciak, she can do it with anyone!
Moving right along, NeNe is taking her ego to a whole new level! In a new article by the National Enquirer they are claiming the notorious NeNe is giddy about how her career is taking off since guest starring on Glee giving her ultimate bragging rights.
“This is NeNe’s dream come true,” a show insider revealed to the gossip mag. “She can’t wait to become a big star and watch the rest of the housewives in her rear view mirror as she drives off from Atlanta to Hollywood!” Well, check yourself before you wreck yourself, NeNe and don’t let your ego get the best of you.
According to insiders, NeNe feels “vindicated” after landing the guest role particularly in the wake of her castmates’ dislike of her now that she has the opportunity to break out from Housewives. “She told a pal, ‘Whoever said success is the best revenge got it right. I can’t wait to issue a big fat goodbye to all those bitches!’ ”
NeNe is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to rub her latest success in her co-star’s and former friend’s faces — particularly Sheree Whitfield and Kim Zolciak! According to the article Kim was hoping her new marriage and baby storyline would result in a permanent spin off, ala Bethenny Frankel, but Andy Cohen has been vocal in stating the spin off is a one-time event and he wants Kim to remain on RHOA.
“NeNe thinks this Glee role will eclipse the accomplishments of the other Atlanta Housewives combined, and she couldn’t be happier,” the insider continues. “She feels having the last laugh on everyone who ever dissed her.”
Finally, tonight there is an all-new episode of RHOA! On tonight’s episode Phaedra makes moves towards opening her family mortuary business, Kandi branches into the country music scene and NeNe confronts gossip about her alleged affair with Charles Grant! A preview of the new episode is below. Tonight also kicks off the new five-nights a week schedule for Watch What Happens Live where Kandi will be the guest!
Real Housewives of Atlanta airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
THOUGHTS ON KANDI’S NEW SEX TOY LINE – DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE SUCCESSFUL? DO YOU THINK NENE’S GUEST ROLE ON GLEE WILL PROPEL HER INTO BIGGER VENTURES?

With Kim and new husband Kroy Biermann gaining their own spin-off on Bravo with Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding (brilliant!), one cast member isn’t sharing in Kim’s success. Nene Leakes, 44, who had her share of pseudo-success outside the Bravo bubble with her stint on Celebrity Apprentice, is reportedly less than thrilled about her former friend’s new found projects.
Sheree Whitfield tells Us, “When Kim told me she was getting her own show, in the back in of my mind, I was like, I don’t know if someone else is going to be too happy. Especially when she thinks that she’s the star of the show.” Whoever could she be referring to in those statements? Sheree even goes as far as to suggest, “I’m sure Bravo hears about it every day.” Sounds like Kim doesn’t even need to get in the ring, as she’s got Sheree “checkin’” Nene for her!
In fact, a report came out earlier this year stating The Nene was threatening to quit the RHOA if Bravo didn’t offer her a spin-off stat!
Speaking of Sheree, the 41-year-old designer also opens up to the magazine about her ongoing battle over child support with ex-husband and former pro NFL footballer Bob Whitfield, 40. The couple has been disputing Bob’s contributions (which according to Sheree are non-existent) to the pair’s two children Kairo and Kaleigh. Sheree, who for a brief period enlisted the legal prowess of cast member Phaedra Parks, shares, “We’re still going through [the courts].”
Sheree believes she has reason for her extreme frustration, revealing, “[Bob's] telling the judge, ‘She has money. I don’t work. I’m retired for X amount of years.’” Um, it doesn’t matter how much either party is making — both of them created those children! Both are responsible for supporting them. She rants (understandably), “He’s healthy! Go get your ass a job!” You tell him! Sheree believes that Bob is extremely “cocky” about the fact he’s not making payments. That’s not good!
Finally, the magazine reports on purported tension between newlyweds Peter Thomas, 51, and Cynthia Bailey, 44. As you all remember, Cynthia just proudly opened her own modeling agency… while husband Peter critiqued her every move and left before his wife could even welcome the crowd. Peter isn’t the most beloved househusband (unless you’re Nene!), as he’s given negative interviews about his wife’s friends and got into a verbal altercation with Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida at Kim’s baby shower! The nerve!
While on the episode Cynthia was very upset by her husband’s unexplained absence, Peter gives his side of the story to Us, stating, “I left because I was extremely tired. I didn’t think I would hurt Cynthia’s feelings. I am one hundred percent supportive of everything she does.” As for offending his wife’s cast mates, “If what I say rubs them the wrong way, that’s their problem!” That is one way to look at it, I guess.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE US WEEKLY REPORTS? IS NENE JEALOUS OF KIM’S SPIN-OFF? SHOULD BOB BE PAYING CHILD SUPPORT TO SHEREE? THOUGHTS ON PETER’S “SUPPORTIVE” HUSBAND ACT?
While former BFFsKim Zolciak and Nene Leakes promised to never speak again following their tour bus blow up on season 3, many fans believed that pact wouldn’t last. It has, however, lasted as evident on last week’s RHOA episode which had both ladies in the same room not speaking, while also not acknowledging one another.
In her latest Bravo blog, Kim Zoliack Biermann talks about seeing the Nene during Cynthia Bailey’s opening of her modeling agency.
“I had baby KJ three weeks before Cynthia’s event, so it was my first time getting into regular clothes in a while. A Louis Vuitton jumpsuit to be exact. It was nice to get out! Everyone was so worried about me and NeNe being in the same room together, but I wasn’t!,” says Kim.
Kim continues, “I am an adult, and both NeNe and I have come to the understanding that we will never speak ever again. Besides, I’m in a different place than I was on the bus tour. NeNe doesn’t exist to Kim Biermann. NeNe may be taller than I am, but she is definitely not on my level. Moving on!” Me to the ow!
Kim then takes a minute to get on her soapbox about newbie Marlo Hampton’sclaim to riches! “Everyone has been buzzing about this new girl, Marlo, and I was excited to meet her. I had heard rumors that she sleeps with much older men for money and that’s her claim to fame in Atlanta.” Uh, isn’t that YOUR claim to fame as well Kim!?
Sitting comfortably in her glass house, Kim continues, “Now listen, I’m not one to judge how a bitch pays her bills, but admitting to it and then boasting about it is just tacky! She kept bringing up her “big poppa” and hearing those two words was making me sick!” Didn’t you used to brag about your “big Poppa”? Anyone else remember that scene from season 1 during which she went on and on about the married and rich Big Poppabuying her a Range Rover?
Kim closes out her blog by stating: “She and Kandistarted arguing about God knows what, and it totally reminded me why Kroy and I are happy to stay at home. These women are in their late thirties and early forties and they still go to events and argue. I couldn’t have left any faster. Bye, bitches!”
Funny how these Bravo housewives get their own spinoffs and are all of a sudden too good for the drama! Coughs, Bethenny, coughs. And finally, Kim’s daughter Brielle posted an old photo on her Myspace page (people still use Myspace?) of her mom without her wig on! That photo is below!
Also, below is the first photo of the one and only Nene Leakes playing her Glee character — Roz Washington, coach of the school’s swim team. Lastly, there will be no new episode of the RHOA airing tonight on Bravo. The show returns in two weeks.

“Having a new baby changes you,” Kim told PEOPLE. “Watching this season, I feel like you can just see how happy I am on my face – I don’t even have to say anything.” And this season Kim is happy to have her life on film, “I’m grateful to have all this captured on camera.”
Kim admits that past seasons were hard to watch due to the non-stop confrontations and drama surrounding her, but now that she is in a different place with a different focus she doesn’t cringe at all. Not even when we see her carting around a couple dozen wigs she treats like children? “I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I’d be like, ‘Oh, god,’ ” Kim confesses. “And now, this season … it’s been incredible … I wasn’t involved with the drama.”
“I absolutely have no regrets, but this season is a lot easier for me to watch,” she reveals. “Last year I was caught up in drama and trying to do that bus tour. And it’s hard to watch.”
“You live it, and then six months later, you watch it on TV,” Kim explains of how reality TV works. “So this season, there aren’t any moments where I’m in a position where I’m going to cover my eyes.”
Kim is equally excited about the new year and the premiere of her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding. So what’s her New Year’s Resolution? “To get more for sleep.” Darn, I was hoping it’d be something along the lines of start more drama or that her wigs would get their own spin-off. At least it’s not to produce another song!
THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? IS KIM CAPABLE OF AVOIDING DRAMA OR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL SHE GETS SWEPT BACK IN? ARE YOU LIKING THE LESS CRAZY KIM THIS SEASON?
On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint. Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.
The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD? (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

Kim Zolciak has made a lot of changes since the first seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Hearkening back to the good ol’ days before she was NeNe Leakes‘ mortal enemy, married instead of a mistress, chain smoking and merely a wannabe singer, it’s shocking how much things have changed for the beweaved one. Well, maybe the wannabe singer part hasn’t changed — she still wants to be able to sing, but instead has settled for merely recording some seriously Autotuned pop songs. Ahhh… Kim what must it be like to be you?
Kim spent some time in Chicago this weekend with her new hubs Kroy Biermann and speaking to the Windy City Times, she talks about all the changes that have happened in her life.
Kim is apparently still annoyed over the “definite drama” at her babyshower because of co-star Cynthia Bailey and is still a little bit pissed about Peter Thomas‘ comments to Uptown Magazine. “I didn’t lose anything at the end of the day because Peter and Cynthia didn’t show up until 15 minutes before it was over, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. It was rude and uncalled for, you know what I am saying?”
“I don’t even know Peter. I don’t spend a lot of time with Cynthia and only know the stories that I hear. Everyone has an opinion but if you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say it at all kind of thing, especially when it is about your wife’s cast members…” Oh the travesties of being a Housewife — you get talked about all the time.
Kim would rather focus on her fabulous married life, calling it “fantastic;” and the happy couple is finally settling into things after their lavish wedding. Kim explains they are considering her trip to Chicago for an appearance a “little honeymoon.” ” I haven’t had the time to enjoy because I have been working a lot. I am happy, and Kroy is such a great guy.”
And Kim is very excited about her new spin-off Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which chronicles preparing for her 11-11-11 nuptials, but she can’t give away any details.
Adding that she is so grateful she decided to go and support Sheree Whitfield‘s charity event last season where she met Kroy. “I met him on the show last year for real,” Kim explains. “I always say I am so grateful. I didn’t even want to go to that even that day and had a lot going on then. I went to support Shereé and never would have thought in a million years that I would have met my husband there.”
Speaking of NeNe, her former bestie, Kim is officially over it. “I am at a different place in my life. I wish her well and much success. I am very focused on my family and my husband. That is what I have going on, and I don’t have time for the negativity anymore or the drama.”
Kim is giving credit where credit is due and admitting that NeNe is the reason she was casted on Housewives. “She is the one that introduced me to the producers or what have you,” Kim reveals. “I will always be thankful for that. It has been an incredible journey over all of these years. But she has some anger issues that she needs to deal with…”
In other NeNe news, Tamara Tattles is reporting that the rowdy one, who is currently filming a guest spot on hit TV show Glee, may land a permanent role on series. Then, she’ll be cashing Fox checks!
NeNe apparently filmed a second episode for the series last week, slated to be a Michael Jackson Tribute episode and proving that she is actually in the episodes, NeNe is included in the upcoming Glee promo. NeNe’s role will be that of swim teacher Roz Washington and apparently she is having so much fun filming in LA that she may be heading back there following the cast-wide Christmas break to continue filming more episodes! Something tells me acting might be a natural segue for the overly dramatic Ms. Leakes!
Her first Glee episode is slated to air on January 17, 2012. Her second episode will be airing on Jan 24th. A photo of The Neen on set is below.
Finally, a new episode of RHOA airs tonight on Bravo and Phaedra and Sheree face off over Sheree’s supposed legal representation by Ms. Parks. Good thing Phaedra isn’t really her lawyer! Also on tonight’s episode, Kim and her family move into their new dream house and Cynthia hosts her grand opening for The Bailey Agency, which leads to Kim and NeNe being in the same place at the same time for the first time this season.
A preview clip of the new episode is below in which Sheree confronts Phaedra over her courtroom drama! RHOA airs tonight on Bravo at 9/1oc.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bob took Sheree to court, Phaedra got played by Bob, Kandi talked her new self-pleasure line and Kim struggled for her daughter to accept KJ.
Things begin with Phaedra and Sheree meeting to discuss Bob’s modification of child support. Phaedra explains it will be a very engrossing process with a lot of sorting through everyone’s business. Sheree is emotional because it is dealing with something very dear to her heart: her money, according to Phaedra. Sheree is still unwilling to put Dead Beat Head Butt Bob in jail for back child support, but Phaedra promises to be the diligent legal eagle and get her the justice she deserves!
