Apollo Nida


The lovely thing about Real Housewives of Atlanta is the drama never stops, but it never gets to the mean, desperate, depressing places of Real Housewives of New Jersey or Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — meaning I don’t need a Prozac after watching and I don’t feel bad snarking on the women. Even when these ladies are fighting, clawing at each other and backstabbing all the way to Texas they still keep the fun and sassy in place. Just thought I’d open with a big shout-out to the only remaining silly Housewives show. Perhaps that’s why the franchise pulls in the highest Bravo numbers (hint, hint Cohen, et al)…

Anyway, NeNe Leakes is still waving the “Hater” flag and she is waving it wild and free in the faces of her colleagues. Who yeah, are haters, but it takes one to know one! In her latest Bravo Blog called “Lies and Gossip”, Ms. Leakes confronts her co-stars for talking about her constantly while pretending they just don’t care.

NeNe opens by giving credit where credit is due for keeping her name in the news.”We are up to the fifth episode, and the girls have talked about me in every one. Is that hating or what?”

“I laugh when watching the show, because it seems as if they all got together and said, “We’re going to talk about her and say this and that! We’re going to say Cynthia [Bailey] is up her a–!” All of this nonsense has truly backfired, because it has helped me in every way. So for that I say thank you!”

Since no one seems to want to let go of reDICKulous or NeNe fleeing Kandi Burrussfaux birthday party without so much as a good-bye, NeNe gives more insight into her decision to leave. “Kandi’s birthday party — I had been out of the state working and once I returned, Kandi personally invited me to her birthday party,” NeNe explains.

“I was willing to go even though we don’t always get along with the same people. Phaedra [Parks] decided to give her a gift which was a monster-esque stripper that jumped out of a box and put his privates in his mouth. Then he put it into Kandi’s glass, stirred it up, and handed it back to her. It was just disgusting, so I decided to leave.”

And unlike some Housewives who may or may not have past in adult entertainment (ahem… Melissa Gorga), NeNe is not ashamed! “Yes, I’ve heard all the talk wondering why I would be put off when I used to be a dancer! And yes, I used to be a dancer. It was twenty years ago, and I’m not ashamed of it. I danced as a single mom to support myself when I was in my twenties after getting out of an abusive relationship. Not once however did I bend over and suck my own lady parts. I’ve done a lot of things in my life that I wouldn’t dare do today, and I would have to credit that to growth! I’m a real woman. I have lived and learned. I embrace who I am and don’t look to anyone for validation.

As for why she was hours late to the opening of Bar One, NeNe claims Cynthia was aware of her tardiness and better late than never, anyways. “Cynthia and I know who we are as adult women, and we’re very comfortable in our skin. That’s why we’re able to have such a great relationship. I texted Cynthia several times, so she knew I was having an issue and would be late.”

“I walked into the room and owned it! Eyes were rolling and lips were smacking. After the ladies picked their faces up off the floor, I spoke to those I wanted to speak to and those who didn’t get a hello knew why,” NeNe admonishes.

Confronting the rumors of her alleged affair with Charles Grant, NeNe is calling foul! “These girls will not give credit where it’s due, because their goal is to tear you down and put out false information, just as they tried to do with me, Gregg [Leakes], and Charles. But that didn’t work either! Gregg and I have always been close. Gregg knows me and I know him. Our relationship was not based on lies or gossip!”

In fact, NeNe recently Tweeted: “I wouldn’t go 2 the zoo wit Charles Grant! I’am VERY n Love & VERY happy & this is a VERY good time 4 me n my life! Winning” And it seems next week we will meet the man responsible for her romantic happiness, John Kolja! According to WetPaint, he’s also responsible for some of her business success as he is the owner of the restaurant franchise she just opened! Although NeNe has yet to confirm their relationship they’ve been cited together looking cuddly, many times. Well, there you have it!

In other RHOA news Phaedra and her husband Apollo Nida, recently did an interview with ESSENCE.com about their appearance on the show positively affecting the portrayal of black families shown on television.

After the loving parents gushed about their now 16-month-old son Ayden, they talked about what viewers can expect to see from them this season. And because she’s no longer expecting, Phaedra says we’ll see her as a professional and an entrepreneur, as their family still has big plans to open a funeral home. Apparently, Apollo had a change of heart and is now fully on board with the plan and his brother is also involved!

Most importantly, Phaedra reveals her true intention behind going on the show was to demonstrate to the black community that marriage, along with “children in wedlock” are a good thing and a goal the black community should embrace. Phaedra hopes to demonstrate the importance of going to college and living the “American Dream” through her presence on the show (she should probably leave reDICKulous at home from now on…).

Phaedra adds that the public doesn’t see enough of that because there are so many “stereotypical portrayals” that the media “feeds into,” particularly “negative depictions” of black men. Especially interesting, it seems Phaedra was the catalyst for the cast’s trip to Africa this season, that she hopes shows viewers a different side of both Africa and the ladies!

It was a great interview, and I feel, an opportunity to see Phaedra and Apollo as they really are which is intelligent, well-spoken, family-oriented people who are likely very different from what we see on TV. After all, Phaedra has confessed to “playing a character” on the show! You can view the video below!

THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG? ARE HER CO-STARS TOO FOCUSED ON HER LIFE? WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON PHAEDRA’S INTERVIEW?

Oh these Atlanta ladies! In the latest round of Southern Hostility, Kim Zolciak is flinging every insult she can find at Cynthia Bailey! Girl must really be sipping on the margaritas as of late, because she is having some trouble keeping her comments to herself!

Kim’s, I mean, Kroy Biermann’s, ostentatious (re: tacky) baby shower may have been months ago, but she is still fighting mad at Cynthia and her husband, Peter Thomas for showing up over four-hours late and causing a scene with Phaedra Parks‘ husband, Apollo Nida! Oh, and for failing to give her a shower gift! I mean Kim was only registered for Louis Vuitton changing pad covers and diamond encrusted pacifiers – why is Cynthia so cheap?!

Taking to her Bravo blog, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star speaks out about Peter’s behavior and blames Cynthia for not keeping her man in check! “The fact that Cynthia and Peter came twenty minutes before it was over, without a gift, and then Peter started some ridiculous fight was more of an insult than not showing up at all… It’s obvious Peter had an ulterior motive walking in there, because he said, ‘I hope we don’t get kicked out.’”

“I’m not mad at Apollo, because he was defending his wife. I would want Kroy to do the same for me,” Kim continues. “But Peter took the whole argument to another level and as a wife, Cynthia should have kept her man in check!”

“But if you haven’t noticed, Cynthia doesn’t speak unless she has permission from NeNe [Leakes] so it came as no surprise that she didn’t say anything to Peter.” Wow! “I certainly will not be inviting Peter or Cynthia to anything else,” Kim “Side Boob” Biermann added.

Kim didn’t stop there; she continued her onslaught through Twitter! “My baby shower was beautiful and then Peter shows up and causes a mess!!” she snapped. “Apollo really did hold his composure as long as he cud! He was defending his wife!”

Then, she called Cynthia boring and boasted about having the hottest hubby! Really, Kim – anyone else remember how “hot” Big Poppa was? “Ughh Cynthia….. Boring snoozefest!! I have the hottest househubby for sure!!!!!! #jealous” Kim commented, referring to last week’s WWHL poll questioning who is the hottest man in the ATL. “Hell yes Apollo and @biermann71 tied for hottest house hubby! No doubt @PhaedraParks and I r lucky!!”

As for Cynthia’s allegation that Kim actually didn’t get a wedding present, Kim claims that’s not true. She retaliated with a tweet slamming Cynthia and calling her a liar! “Cynthia is full of sh*t Kroy & I gave her card w/ cash 4 her wedding! We knew she was having financial problems so we figured she could use the $ instead of purchasing something she didn’t need!” Well, if Cynthia is so “poor” maybe Kim shouldn’t have expected a baby gift from her?

After basically insulting Cynthia on all levels and keeping it classy (cause that’s how Kim rolls), Kim did admit that both Peter and Apollo apologized for their behavior. “Wish ya all got to see everything that happened but that wud b hrs worth!” she explained. “For the record Peter did apologize as did Apollo!! We still had a good time!” Oh, well then were all the rude comments necessary, NeNe? Oh, whoops I meant Kim!

Cynthia, who was a guest on Wendy Williams this Wednesday, did not respond to Kim’s comments but Tweeted: “Never mind who is against you, just focus on who is with u.” On her own Bravo blog, Cynthia praised Kim’s shower and the relationship Kroy has with her daughters. She also reiterated that she was tardy for the party due to work!

Although Cynthia does confront present-gate! “Kim said I did not bring a present. I brought her the exact same present that she brought me to my wedding. Nothing. It took me hours to pick it out, and it was perfect.”

Surprisingly, NeNe has kept quiet about her BFF’s feud with Kim, instead Tweeting that last weeks episode was “soooo boring” without her in it! NeNe has been occupied guzzling the surely disgusting delicious Miss Moscato wine she is now producing and hanging out in NYC with Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams. NeNe tweeted a photo of the two of them having drinks while son Brent spent Thanksgiving with his father, Gregg Leakes. Perhaps this divorce is real after all… The photo of NeNe and Jen is below!

Also, Kim tweeted a photo of her wedding jumpsuit (one of her three wedding outfits) and that photo is below as well!

Tonight the controversy continues with a new episode of RHOA. Phaedra attempts to mend fences with Kim over Apollo’s behavior at Kim’s shower. The basically drama-less Kandi Burruss finds herself in the hot seat with mama Joyce at her birthday party, where Phaedra gives her a memorable gift! Peter squares off with Cynthia’s sister leaving Cynthia torn between her husband and her sister.

And Sheree Whitfield is frustrated over the slow progress building the elusive Chateau Sheree – by the way there are some rumors circulating around Atlanta claiming Sheree never actually built said dream house. The Atlanta blog Tamara Tattles did some research and discovered it may have been a manufactured storyline for the show! In fact, The Nene tweeted: “She was frontin! It was never built,” after a fan tweeted to her asking how a “broke” Sheree could afford to build a new home. A preview of the upcoming episode is below.

Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo (9/10c) followed by an all-new WWHL (11/12c).

Following this week’s drama on the Real Housewives of Atlanta over an interview he gave to UpTown magazine during which he slammed his wife Cynthia Bailey’s costars, Peter Thomas has decided it’s best to give another interview to the SAME mag slamming the same costars again!

Yes, in his latest interview with UpTown magazine, Peter doesn’t hold back as he discusses his beef with Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida, talks smack about Sheree Whitfield, calls Kim Zolciak “crazy” while adding that Nene Leakes has a “big ass mouth” though he makes it clear he loves The Nene!

Below are excerpts from Peter’s new interview -

On Clashing with Apollo:

What people see is what it is. I don’t really know Apollo. Apollo felt like he was defending his wife [regarding] the UPTOWN article that I did . . . the article wasn’t about them. The article was about how I felt about what my wife said and what people were saying about, you know, UPTOWN Restaurant and Lounge and that she gave me money to do it and I wanted to set the record straight by saying yes she made a contribution but I didn’t take her wallet to do it.

The Real Problem With Sheree:

She talks about everybody f****ed up all the time, especially my wife. She said my wife is spineless. She said my wife has no backbone. She said my wife follows around NeNe like some little puppy. She says a lot of really f****ed up things and my wife is too much of a classy chick to even go in on that so, when they ask me what I think, because me and my wife is one, I’m gone say how I feel. She thinks she’s cute but I don’t think she’s cute. If she thinks she’s cute, then that’s on her. It’s like when I watched [the show Sunday] night and she said ‘well, I know I’m cute’ and my answer was ‘really.’ It didn’t change how I feel. But all of that was at the top of the year. I just saw Sheree recently after the Soul Train Awards. She came through to bar One and maybe she forgave me or I forgave her. We don’t know. Let’s see what happens next.

On Nene and Her Mouth:

When I say NeNe is loud, it’s because NeNe got a big ass mouth but I love her. I love her to death. I love her. She’s cool as hell. She’s the realest as far as I’m concerned.

On Why Kim Is Crazy:

When I say Kim is crazy as hell, it’s because her mouth is so reckless. All kinds of s**t come out of her mouth. I don’t think they have ever shot Kim without beeping, without beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, because she talks crazy. That’s how she talks.

On The Marriage Drama Involving Cynthia’s Mother and Sister:

I was caught off guard. I didn’t see that coming. I love Barbara. I think Cynthia’s mother is a beautiful lady. I didn’t know that they had certain concerns. I had never been in that position before. It made me a little bit more humble. It makes me a little more determined. I used that fuel to light my fire, to bounce right back, to open BarOne. I could crash and burn. I know everybody would like to see that but that’s not who I am. I’m a man’s man and I don’t have no problem repping that to the fullest.

Peter On His Love For His Wife Cynthia and Why People Can’t Stand It:

My wife is not just beautiful. She’s extremely beautiful. I’m not just talking about the exterior and what everybody sees. I’m talking about her make-up–her honesty, her softness, her caring ways. She’s an angel. I’m a lucky man. I’m the luckiest man on the planet. I will do nothing ever to disappoint her. I live for her. When a man and a woman say I do in front of God and family and friends they’re basically saying it’s a ride-or-die type situation. I’m old school so that’s the way I think and I believe that’s the way my wife thinks also… We’re in love with each other and a lot of people hate that because they might not have that in their life. But guess what? That’s their f***ing problem.

Peter also talked about why his UPTOWN Bar failed last year. “UPTOWN only failed for the fact that everything in America failed. Every banking institution failed. Okay. Every mortgage company failed. There wasn’t even no dancing in Atlanta during those months so people wasn’t coming out of their house. Everybody was scared,” said Peter adding that his new place BarOne will succeed because it’s “a small venue” and “the price point is lower.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PETER’S LATEST INTERVIEW? SHOULD HE ZIP IT OR IS HE JUST BEING HONEST?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta the husbands brought the catty as the wives instigated from afar. Kim had a wedding prequel in the form of her baby shower and Sheree started work on her new job building her dream house and I’m counting down the minutes until foreclosure.

Sheree arrives at the building site for Chateau Sheree to watch the demo of the original house built in 1975, practically before she was born. Really Sheree? Someone needs to check you, Boo! BTW: nice “workboots.” Poor Sheree tells us that overseeing the construction of her new home is so much work it’s like a another job – as if she needs one! Leaving all of us to wonder what exactly are Sheree’s other jobs? Being a Housewife? Divorce settlements? Sheree makes sure the contractor has her list of “necessities,” which include: a ballroom with skating rink, a DJ booth, a massage parlor and a library or liberry – even though she doesn’t read. Hopefully she can read the notices of foreclosure that I anticipate will be arriving shortly! Kidding, kidding… only sort of…

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills things got wild Moroccan style at Pandora’s insane, incredible, fantastic engagement party. Can Mohammed be my godfather? Kim debuted her new man who is also a Ken! And Taylor and Russell got a little threatastic with the tabloids. Oh, and Taylor started planning another Birthday Party for Kennedy!

Lisa is driving through her hood amidst the palm trees, Bentleys, designer logos, and mega-mansions casually calling all her friends to remind them that the party of the year will be happening on Tuesday so they better show up. Sadly, everyone is screening her calls. No interest in the British accent today, co-stars? Finally Kyle answers and is wondering what on earth to wear?! Something fun and something ball gown. Lisa fills Kyle in on her little cooking lesson with Adrienne. They are both surprised Adrienne didn’t rub some hand lotion on the poor chicken!

They’re baaaack! Bravo announced today that the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 4 will premiere November 6!

And in the new trailer released by the network, the ATL ladies are more dramatic than ever! In the season trailer below, we see Kim Zolciak dealing with her pregnancy and the arrival of her first son, Phaedra Parks works on opening up a funeral home while her hubby Apollo and Cynthia Bailey’s hubby Peter get into it. And speaking of Cynthia, her family still hates her husband Peter!

Sheree Whitfield has issues with her ex-husband regarding child support, Kandi Burruss and Kim get into it, while Nene Leakes seems to get into it with almost everyone! Especially new housewife Marlo Hampton who is the fiance of Charles Grant, aka the Nene’s rumored former lovah!

In the clip, Nene is also seen dating while husband Gregg is not shown. But as it’s been reported, this appears to be a storyline solely for the show as the two have been photographed during filming — away from Bravo cameras — looking happy and cozy. But we’ll let you be the judge. The housewives also manage to take a break from all the drama to visit South Africa!

The RHOA season 4 trailer is below! The show returns Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c.

TELL US – THOUGHT ON THE RHOA TRAILER? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON?

Episode 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us spa confrontations, Kim singing, and Nene snagging a huge/astronomical celebrity interview but the best part of Sunday night might have just been Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida’s appearance on WWHL, during which Apollo claimed he was 4 years younger than Phaedra. In this recap, I set the record straight on that while touching on whether or not Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar is broke and in foreclosure. Will also briefly touch which Bravo housewives I strongly dislike. They are now 5 by the way. Would also like to know which housewives you all despise dislike the most. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!

The episode begins with Kandi Burruss (who’s album Kandi Koated is in stores now – a nice album) rehearsing for her upcoming promo tour, which is a week away. The best part of this rehearsal is when Kim shows up to show Kandi what her performance will look like. Once again, Kim whines, complains before showing off her lazy performance routine to go along with the bad singing. Here’s a tip for Kandi – have her lip sync. Kandi is not too pleased with Kim’s laziness but doesn’t have time to dedicate to Kim as she also has to focus on her own performances. Kandi wants Kim “to pull it together.”
