Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fun except for the KimKyle-nanigans – that’s shenanigans by Kim and Kyle, if you can’t decipher the lingo. Kim, in addition to looking a hot mess and appearing hung over the entire trip also had Kyle taking every opportunity to argue with her; those two again managed to be completely inconsiderate to everyone, but luckily it ruined only Kyle’s good time.
Things start out on a high note with Adrienne and Paul hiking and holding hands. Double take! I love Paul in middle-aged tourist gear. All he needs is a fannypack to go with Adrienne’s “Visit The Palms, I need the money!” visor.
Kim finally arrives in Lanai! As for being late, “Oops” is all she has to say for herself. Kim is so excited to finally be there and unluckily gets placed in a room right next to Kyle. A frantic Kyle hears Kim’s voice and ignores Mauricio and margaritas(!) to eavesdrop on Kim. In the talking head, Kim states: “I chose to not *coke sniff* to talk to Kyle.” Nice.

Dare I say it, is NeNe Leakes admitting to bad behavior!? NeNe confesses that celebrity (C-List though it may be) isn’t what she expected and that she has unfortunately chosen fame over friendship! Although NeNe believes she had to because her co-stars are jealous of her accomplishments! And regardless of what anyone else thinks, NeNe has big plans to leave Housewives behind for her own talk show!
Speaking to Anderson Cooper, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star explains she had no plans become famous! “I had no idea that being on the ‘Housewives’ show, that we were going to blow [up] the way that we did,” she mused. “If you were with me in a day-to-day situation, I don’t hang out — I’m a real homebody. I don’t like people digging into my personal life,” NeNe claimed. “I don’t see those girls outside of the camera rolling. I don’t hang out with them or anything,” she asserted. Does that mean Cynthia Bailey is only a made-for-TV friend? Based on Peter Thomas‘ latest interview, I’m guessing no!
She also admitted to drunk-dialing the Silver Fox. Put down the Chardonnay, Ms. Leakes, it will only lead to bad things! “So I’m doing a newscast one night, and my phone rings and I look down and I don’t recognize the number, and I don’t answer,” Anderson relayed. “During a commercial break, I check it and it’s NeNe Leakes drunk-dialing me from the back of a limo yelling ‘Don’t be tardy to the party’!” Ok – that’s a pretty fabulous side-effect of fame; having AC’s cell phone and the cajones to drunk dial him!
While NeNe was there to promote her “I’m Very Rich, Bitch” t-shirts and her new wine, Miss Moscato (was her drunk dialing escapade supposed to be an advertisement for the product?) talk was ALLL about the latest RHOA drama. “Celebrity hasn’t gone to my head, but what else can you say? My star is rising, hers is falling,” she snipes about former friend, Sheree Whitfield. “And what do you do? You usually talk about the people that are rising.”
As for her former bestie Kim Zolciak, NeNe reveals they apparently haven’t spoken for “like a year and a half” and although Kim is a “fun girl” as far as rekindling their friendship that’s a “no.” Is anyone else sort of sad that NeNe and Kim are no longer?
In a new interview with Life & Style, NeNe discloses that she definitely chose fame over certain friendships — and she’s ok with that! “It’s very difficult,” NeNe reveals of participating in Housewives. “You can’t trust a lot of people. Your girlfriends all change, and your family is now against you. There’s definitely a cost that comes with fame.”
“I have never experienced so much hate, so much negativity,” she complains of her co-stars reactions to her successes, particularly once she landed a coveted spot on Celebrity Apprentice. “I’ve got a lot of shine and had things happen for me, and they’re definitely jealous.”
Bragging that she is the most successful of the Atlanta ladies – including Kandi Burruss! NeNe believes if the other ladies put in as much effort working as they did talking about her they might be as successful! She may have a point there… “They can go out and make it happen for themselves, but don’t try to take it from me!” she advises. I’m sure she just wants the best for all her fellow Housewives!

THOUGHTS ON NENE’S INTERVIEW? ARE THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES OF JEALOUS OF NENE’S BREAKOUT SUCCESS? THOUGHTS ON NENE’S PLANS FOR A TALK SHOW – WOULD YOU WATCH?
NeNe revealed to host Kit Hoover, that she is “almost single.” Despite being seen recently as a couple, NeNe maintains that her divorce from Gregg Leakes should be finalized “really soon, in the next couple weeks,” and she is excited to be “out there dating” again!
NeNe also discloses that she is definitely open to getting remarried! “I absolutely love being married, and I think love is a beautiful thing…” she tells Kit, gushing, “I love love. The sooner it comes the better!” And who is she hoping to find love with? Perhaps Anderson Cooper! Well, sure that might happen. Or maybe Simon Cowell! NeNe loves the menz with the monies! I’m surprised Andy Cohen didn’t make the list.
NeNe also talks Kim’s new spin-off and she must have practiced really, really hard to look neutral when the subject came up, because surprisingly she didn’t start yelling about Kim being trash and instead sort of, kind of, congratulated her. “I think that every woman needs to be independent. You need to have a job. If that’s what’s happening in her life, great.”
And reacting to the Real Housewives of New York City casting shake-up, Nene was honest in admitting it makes her a little nervous. “For them to take out some of the main characters that we’ve always been watching, it’s a little scary for me.” Perhaps she’s thinking she might be next!
Likely not, as NeNe reveals that season four of RHOA is “drama, drama, drama!” But she’s not giving away which housewife is getting the most camera time this season – besides herself, of course! My bets are on new housewife, Marlo Hampton for bringing the crazy!
Thoughts on NeNe’s interview? Are you buying the “divorce” from Gregg? Do you believe she is really happy for Kim? Will you be watching RHOA? I personally, CANNOT WAIT!

Watch What Happens Live – Bravo announced this week that for the first time in the show’s history, WWHL will air for 5 consecutive nights starting tonight. The ratings for the Bravo late night show has only continued to improve as it now averages 1.3 million viewers per episode.
According to Andy Cohen, the 5 nights airing is more of an experiment. “We’re doing great on Sundays and Thursdays, and competing very well against some very established shows,” Andy said. “We’re looking to have a little fun for a week. It’s more of a special holiday stunt, but we’re open to anything.” That is code talk for if the ratings are good, the five nights a week airing might become permanent.
The guests on tonight’s show will be Nene Leakes and Anderson Cooper.
