When so much reality gossip is petty and, let's be honest, a bit gross (Brandi Glanville'slatest, anyone?), it is so nice to hear of reality stars using their power for good. Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPeter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey are stepping up to the plate to help out an off-duty police officer who was shot while working his second job as a security officer. Don't even get me started on how the people who protect us don't make enough money…
After hearing the news that Officer Christopher L. Smith was shot in the face and leg while working security at an apartment complex not far from Peter's Bar One Tapas Lounge, the Bravolebrity is giving $5000 to double the Crime Stoppers Atlanta reward for information leading to the shooter's arrest.
Things begin with Miss WHO-S-A pageant waving as she leaves the courthouse after her eviction hearing. There's like 4 bored looking photographers standing around checking their watches as Kenya breezes out clutching her chest gasping, 'For meeeee?! Lil' ol' meeee?! Oh being famous… it's such a responsibility.' One of the photographers looks around and asks, 'I thought NeNe Leakes was gonna be here?' Jussst kidding, but you know Kenya called those paps herself and now she's trying to pretend she's A-list. Girl, that ship done sailed! She claims she won her eviction case.
Later she goes for drinks with NeNe to discuss their argument atCynthia Bailey's launch. Krayonce turns on those pageant tears to sniffle about how she has been displaced from her home and no one reached out like she's some sort of suburban refugee. NeNe shoots her a girl please look and reminds her that she's supposed to be a multi-millionaire producer, director, booty boosting guru, man-eating queen, so how can she be homeless? Kenya is like yeah, all that's true but I still need friends and none of you were there for me.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I so forgot how deliciously shade-full and snarky these ladies are. Of course there was also Krayonce… who is just as kraysane as always!
Everyone has had a lot going on since last season. NeNe Leakes re-married Gregg, as we know, and is now like Veruca Salt in a chocolate factory, opening all her wedding presents. Once such wedding present is a $400 Hermes plate from Teresa Giudice. Teresa needs to ask for that plate back. #NotARichBitch
NeNe is ripping through the wrapping paper going 'For meeeeeee….?!' when Gregg reminds her it's actually "for we". Apparently not – it's NeNe's world and we're all just living in it. <Snaps>
The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are coming back with a vengeance, and it appears from the previews for the upcoming season that Cynthia Bailey and husband Peter Thomas are once again facing financial hardships as their new bar is facing foreclosure. It's very reminiscent of the couple's Uptown restaurant that causes a major strain on their relationship.
This time around, Cynthia is trying to face the situation with a cool head and a plan of action. Speaking to Radar Online, Cynthia reveals, “When Peter told me about the issues we were having at Bar One, I immediately felt deja vu: ‘Here we go. We’re back to Uptown.' Financial issues are just huge in a new marriage. We were struggling even to get married and then once I finally feel like I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I got hit with the bomb.”
Cynthia continues, “That was devastating because I’m not comfortable when things are going crazy. I like to have a plan and I like the plan to work. I don’t want to do all those steps and then it just backfires and we’re back to square one.”
We've heard there's been all kinds of drama surrounding the casting this season, including allegations that NeNe Leakes accidentally assaulted producer Carlos King in the midst of a scuffle with former "bridemaid" (who does not understand the definition of the word "maid") Marlo Hampton.
NeNe is also apparently feuding with Kenya Moore, and if anyone noticed Walter Jackson attending herI Dream Of NeNe wedding, while Kenya was conveniently absent, I'd say that tension is real! The fact that Bravo is reportedly STILL FILMING and has not released the promo photos seems to confirm the insanity.
Also confirming the cray-cray is Phaedra Parks. "As a group, there's always some contention among us," Phaedra reveals to TV Guide. "But this year, unlike any other, each lady is also dealing with her own personal things."
There's been a rumor going around that the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta went on vacation together to celebrate Kandi Burruss's wedding to fiance Todd Tucker. We were all excited like is that the season finale? We thought Kandi wasn't getting married on TV? Is RHOA ever going to stop filming?!
