Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of AtlantaLisa Wu Hartwell Real Housewives of Atlanta 2

Kandi Burruss and Lisa Wu Hartwell are dishing out some gossip on what is to come during the 2nd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In an all new interview with TheYBF.com, we find out Kandi and Nene Leakes will clash at some point during the season, plus Kandi talks about helping Kim Zolciak with her “singing” career.

Lisa also talks about what she deems as a double standard between the Atlanta housewives and other housewives’ franchises. Below are some excerpts from the interview -

Do you believe there’s a double standard when people are simply entertained by the antics of the “NJ Housewives”, but call the “Atlanta Housewives”’s antics “ghetto?

Lisa Wu-Hartwell: Absolutely. It’s sad but it’s always been that way. For instance, people look up to Hugh Hefner and the Playboy bunnies show. But get a black guy in there doing the same thing and it’s a problem.

Does the widely used term to describe the cast “Ghetto fabulous” irritate you?

Kandi Burrus: Yes. Ghetto is a frame of mind. And people relate it to color. Our show is entertaining and that’s all.

Lisa, this is your second season. But is there anything from Season 1 you would “do over” if you could?

LWH: {Laughs} Well, I said I would flip Kim over the couch during the Reunion taping. I probably wouldn’t have said it had I had a week or so to let things settle. There were some things said prior, and the wounds were raw and fresh. But we don’t have the liberty to say “take this off” simply because there are cameras there.

Out of all the other “Housewives” shows in the “Real Housewives” franchise, what’s your preferred locale?

LWH: I have some friends on “NY” so I actually like watching them. But “NJ” did keep me entertained. They were so genuine.

KB: I would say New Jersey. I couldn’t get into “New York”. I watched only the first couple episodes of it.

Speaking of “NJ”, what are your thoughts on Danielle?

LWH: Blogs and media probably don’t get it 100% right. But if [the stories about her stripper and coke habit past] are true, hopefully she’s moved on from it and is in a better place.

KB: I actually think she’s pretty funny when I was watching her. She’s in her 40’s now so I’m sure she’s changed.

Danielle Staub made an appearance this week on Bravo’s new weekly talk show, “Watch What Happens” hosted by Andy Cohen.

Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.

Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.

Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.

Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.

I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.

Real housewives of Atlanta Sheree Whitfield Kim Zolciak

The Real Housewives of Atlanta does not premier on Bravo for 2 more weeks but the games have already began. Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson has taken to his site to dish some major dirt on her. It seems the two had a falling out earlier this year. The things Jonathan has to say about Kim include -

  1. She has an addiction to dating married men for the past ten years and even cheating on them.
  2. She never had cancer. Her hair was simply extremely overly processed and she wore extensions which took chunks out of her hair and it hasn’t been the same since. (Hence why she wears wigs.)
  3. “Barbie” was her stripper name while she danced nude and gave private lap dances for men and women at Atlanta’s strip club “Cheetah” back in 2003.
  4. She recently got re-engaged, with even a bigger rock, to Lee Najjar, aka “Big Poppa.” (His name is on her ring finger, which she has been trying to get lasered off for some time now.)*She spends over $50,000 a month and makes her bills paid in time by battering with men.
  5. She has no intention in marrying her current married man, as long as her bills are paid on time.
  6. She and the other ladies of Atlanta’s Season 2 banked $100k for the filming of the show. A battle that took a while to win.
  7. She got her ass nearly beat down by Sheree and NeNe on this year’s upcoming season. Mostly for telling ridiculous lies on the ladies.

Allrighty then. The new season premiers July 30th on Bravo. A picture of Lee Najjar aka Big Poppa below, as well as a photo of Kim with Jonathan -

Real housewives of new jersey

The Real Housewives of New Jersey attended the Cirque Du Soleil in New Jersey yesterday. Well only some of the housewives, as Caroline Manzo was not in attendance.

You have to love the picture above and the space between Danielle and Teresa. Wondering if this means Jacqueline and Danielle have made up.

Below are more pictures of the cast with their families. Is it just me or is there something sorta sexy about Jacqueline’s husband, Chris?

An expanded live series of Watch What Happens will premiere July 16 on Bravo at midnight with host Andy Cohen. Andy is best known for hosting Watch What Happens reunion specials including the two part reunion for The Real housewives of New Jersey.

Viewers will enjoy getting to know Andy and his weekly guests. Andy will interview guests from some of Bravo’s highly rated shows. The show is meant to keep you updated on the world of entertainment, pop culture . There will be lots of viewer interaction by email, phone, video, twitter and facebook.

We can expect the show to be unpredictable, funny, and occasionally shocking. You don’t want to miss the premier show tomorrow which will feature New Jersey Housewives’ Danielle Staub.

Hopefully Andy will ask some unanswered questions from the reunion show and let’s hope Danielle will answer them truthfully.

Alexis Bellino

Bravo is currently filming the 5th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County with a new housewife in tow. Alexis Bellino, 32, is the latest Bravo housewife. Alexis is described as being a friend of Gretchen Rossi.

Alexis who is from Newport Coast is described as a stay-at-home mother of three. There are conflicting stories on wether or not Alexis is replacing OC veteran, Jeana Keough. The OC Register is reporting Jeana will not be back, while other reports have stated Jeana will be returning.

The one thing we are certain of is that Alexis will be on the show. Alexis’s husband is Jim Bellino, 47. Jim is described as an entrepreneur who use to own a pool table business that was an $8 million-a-year-profit company.

In a new interview with the OC register, Alexis describes filming with the other women – “It has been amazing. I already knew Gretchen. Lynne (Curtin)’s a sweetheart. She doesn’t have a mean bone in body. Vicki (Gunvalson) and I joked and laughed and had a good time. But there’s drama anytime you get five women together.”

Unlike Kelly Bensimon of the NY Housewives, Alexis describes herself as an addict of the show and has seen every single episode.

This should make for an interesting new season. I love the fact that she just happens to be a friend of Gretchen. Alexis is obviously easy on the eyes as is Gretchen. So it might be safe to say Tamra Barney will spend the entire season on trying to “out” her on something, or accuse Alexis of trying to be like her.

TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ALEXIS JOINING THE CAST?

Teresa-Giudice

Energetic Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is expecting baby #4 in September. Teresa opens up to OK magazine about her pregnancy.

“I eat everything,” she tells OK with young daughter Gia at her side. “I don’t watch what I eat – I’m not one of those ‘oh I have to watch my figure.’ I just make the baby happy. Whatever the baby wants, I eat it. No cravings.” Teresa says she has had to satisfy her alcohol cravings with food.

She goes on to say she is not interested in knowing the sex of the baby. “Whatever God wants – as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Gia adds, “It’s the fourth child and you want it to be a surprise – you should let it be a surprise.”

Big sisters Gia, Gabriella and Milania are anxious to meet the new addition to the family. Teresa also adds that hubby, Juicy Joe, is a great dad.

Lessons she will like to pass on to the kids- value family and be a well-rounded good person because you have to look at yourself in the mirror daily.

Rumors have been circulating that Jill Zarin may not return to The Real Housewives of New York City because Bravo has refused to meet her demands.

In an interview with Radaronline, Jill insists that she will be returning even though she has yet to sign the contract. In addition, she confirmed Kelly Bensimon was one of the first housewives to sign the contract for season 3.  However, she failed to confirm if other cast mates had signed their contracts.

Even though Bravo released a statement saying they are looking for new cast members, Jill insists all the cast mates will be returning.  “The ink isn’t dry yet, but I can tell you that we’re all set on returning,” she said. “Bravo released a statement saying they were looking for new cast members and I think people read into that. I think the show was giving some of the original cast members a chance to deal with their personal lives.”

She also refutes rumors saying she was getting paid about $30,000 an episode, but nevertheless she says she is not involved in reality television because of the money.
