Cynthia Bailey

The Georgia peaches are back on Bravo! Tonight features a whole new season of drama, wig-tugging and pickle photography with the women of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. There is a lot going on this time around.

A pregnant Kim Zolciak moves in with her younger fiance, Falcons player Kroy Bierman, while Kandi Burruss introduces her line of adult toys. Cynthia Bailey leaves the restaurant business to start her own modeling school and lawyer Phaedra Parks tries her hand at being a funeral director. What? But fear not, it won’t be all new businesses and life changes. A recent feud between NeNe Leakes and former friend Sheree Whitfield promises to bring the drama.

In a an interview with Star, Nene dishes that her breakout fame (because apparently that’s what Celebrity Apprentice causes) has her castmates bubbling over with jealousy. She reveals, “They don’t have anything positive to say, of course. Coming back was a funny feeling. I guess every other girl kind of feels like, ‘Why her? Why not me?’ ”

When discussing her knock-down-drag-out with Sheree, which apparently goes from friendly chat to screaming match in 0.25 seconds, NeNe explains, “It was all just petty. I walked into that situation not wanting it to blow up, but it did.”

NeNe also dishes on the ladies trip to Morocco South Africa. “It’s a long-ass flight, but it’s beautiful!” She continues, “The moment I landed, I was like, why the hell am I here with y’all? It would be great if I came here with people I really liked.” Mee and Yow!

Poor NeNe admits that doing the show is draining. She states, “It’s a lot. We shoot it, then it airs and we have to see it, and after that we have to go to the reunion and relive it again. After every one I’m like, ‘Why did I do this again?’” NeNe, I bet some of the viewers are asking the same question.

Continuing her press tour, NeNe spoke with Sister2Sister to further address her feud this season with Sheree. It seems Sheree believes her former friend tried to cheat her out of a paid appearance. Of course, NeNe feels that Sheree is simply creating drama to insure she stays relevant on the show.

NeNe asserts, “Me and Sheree have an argument, but Lord knows she needs to have an argument with somebody because she’s so damn boring.” Simply put, NeNe explains, “She confronted me and I don’t hold back. Sheree came to me saying that I was trying to take money out of her pocket, which I thought was a joke.” She continues, “I’m looking at her like, ‘Mm hmm. B!tch please! I can put money in your pocket.’”

The whole notion is preposterous to the famous Ms. Leakes who doesn’t need to steal Sheree’s thunder or her appearance opportunities. She says, “To just keep it really real with you, my appearance fee is way higher than hers anyway. Child, please!” Of course her fee is much higher, she’s much more famous! (According to her…)

Regardless of the she said-she said, this season promises the same craziness we’ve grown to love (or loathe) from the ladies of Atlanta. The premiere airs tonight (9pm ET) on Bravo, and you can watch a preview clip below. You won’t want to be tardy for this party!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE HER CASTMATES ARE JEALOUS OF HER? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S PREVIEW & SEASON PREMIERE?

In a new interview, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey talks about how she ended up on Housewives, what reality stardom has been like and what to expect this season! Sadly, she doesn’t really give anything good away.

Eight months after moving to Atlanta for her relationship with then boyfriend, Peter Thomas, Cynthia learned that Bravo was casting for a new Housewife. “People I knew had mentioned I should be on the show, and I was eventually approached because my name kept coming up as a candidate. I took a meeting, which led to another meeting, which led to a phone call with Bravo and a screen test.”

Cynthia says watching herself on TV during her first season was “a little mortifying.” “There’s no book on how to be on a reality show,” she confesses. “You just have to go through it. Peter and I decided the best thing to do was to put it out there – to be real. On one hand, I’m glad we put it all out there. On the other hand, I feel like we gave too much.” Is she referring to the total financial implosion that happened days before the wedding her mother and sister tried to cancel moments before she walked down the aisle?

“I think people really related to our troubles last year with this economy. I got so many letters from viewers who were losing their jobs, losing their houses, losing their cars. They were glad to see that people on TV have problems, too. It was really real. I can’t fake that kind of pressure,” Cynthia explains of last season’s issues the couple faced after Peter was forced to close Uptown.

This season Cynthia promises that, although she remains friends with out of control out-spoken co-star NeNe Leakes, she is “more opinionated” and branching out to form friendships with other ladies. “Last season, NeNe was my friend on the show, but this season I integrated with more than just NeNe, and I’m much more vocal.” Uh-oh… that means trouble!

She also formed strong friendships on the ladies’ cast trip to Africa! “We took an amazing trip there, and it’s one of my favorite things we shot this season,” she expresses. “I felt like I really bonded with each of the girls individually on the trip. We were stuck together for ten days in a Third World country, and it brought us together.”

As for what else is happening in season four of RHOA, Cynthia reveals she will be working hard on the Bailey Agency School of Fashion and Peter opened a new lounge, Bar One.

“Our show offers something different; we’re organic,” she says of what makes RHOA Bravo’s most popular Housewives series. “It is what it is with us. We’re more real, and you’re going to get great moments and major train wrecks with us.”

In other RHOA news, as you all know Kim Zolciak is engaged! She is finally showing off the glamorous rock fiancé Kroy Biermann designed especially for her! While it’s not as big as her ring from Big Poppa, the 10k ring is nothing to laugh at. It’s gorgeous! Kim revealed her sparkler to the world via TwitPic just in time for her expected 11/11/11 nuptials! A photo of Kim’s ring is below.

Well, I can’t wait! Real Housewives of Atlanta premiers on Bravo, Sunday, November 6 (9/10c).

THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU PREDICT TROUBLE BETWEEN HER AND NENE THIS SEASON? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SEASON FOUR OF RHOA? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RING?

Is she or isn’t she?

A new report claims Marlo Hampton, who was supposed to be the new wife on the block for Real Housewives of Atlanta is actually not going to make the cut!

StraightFromTheA blog is reporting that, while Marlo was originally slated to join as the seventh housewife, she has now been relegated to the “side-kick” role ala Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

This is possibly verified by the fact that Marlo was not included in any of the official Bravo promotional pictures or write-ups for the new season. And Phaedra Parks stated in a recent interview: “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife.”

The reason Marlo got downgraded? Apparently not only did she lie about her affiliation with supposed fiancé Charles Grant, she also has a pretty shady and violent criminal past! (oh no – Danielle 2.0!). Also she was supposed to bring the catfights with NeNe Leakes, but instead the two formed a friendship! A Bravo no-no!

Marlo’s criminal past is quite extensive, resulting in seven arrests, including a couple for aggravated assault and another for check fraud from her days living in Florida. Seriously! Sources say Bravo is claiming they did not know about her lengthy violent criminal history and when they were alerted to it through the blogosphere, were forced to reconsider adding her to the cast permanently to avoid being held responsible for any of her untoward (re: possibly illegal) behaviors! Hey, they’ve already got enough of that on their hands!

I find it very hard to believe that Bravo would not thoroughly and exhaustively background check their cast members – and I believe they do conduct those checks and then cast for maximum drama. I mean, you get a background check to work at Target!

In addition the number one reason Marlo was added to the cast was to create controversy with NeNe as a result of her relationship with Charles. Well, allegedly not only were Marlo and Charles never engaged and Charles refused to be implicated in her schemes; Nene KNEW their relationship was a fraud all along!

In fact, Marlo and NeNe allegedly pulled a fast one and buddied up against other ladies on the cast (although the recent trailer for the season shows them getting into plenty of disputes!) and Marlo also formed friendships with Phaedra and Cynthia Bailey in the hopes the network would keep her on anyways.

StraightFromTheA, who cites their source as “highly credible,” is also claiming that Marlo “didn’t have ANY of the qualifications that Bravo requests for inclusion on the show, i.e. married, divorced or in a long-term relationship with a baller/well-to-do mate, career, kids,” so Bravo simply lost interest in what she could bring to the show long-term. Um… chaos? But I guess with NeNe and Phaedra they’ve already got enough of that!

Marlo’s numerous mugshots are featured below.

Do you think there is truth to the rumor that Marlo will not be included in the cast or just an attempt to create buzz for the new season? Thoughts on Marlos’ background and supposed faux-gagement to Charles Grant?

With the Real Housewives of Atlanta almost upon us, the ladies are out in full-force to promote the show and the dramz! A trailer for show promises tons of bickering, bitchiness, and over-the-top crazy – along with parties galore!

Phaedra Parks tells the Rumor Fix of the new season, “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” not giving away anything about the introduction of Marlo Hampton.

Everybody knows that Phaedra and NeNe Leakes don’t get along and Phaedra reassures us that the feud continues! As for NeNe’s acrimonious appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra reveals she is largely unimpressed by her co-star’s behavior! “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so is Lil John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”

Phaedra also takes a jab at Kandi Burruss in response to some totally true comments she made about Phaedra’s baby-shower last season! “I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower,” Phaedra snips. “It is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”

In other RHOA news, Kim Zolciak is moving full speed ahead with her wedding plans to NFL fiance Kroy Biermann before he changes his mind just days after announcing her engagement on twitter!

In fact TMZ obtained Kim’s wedding invitation (she’s slated to tie the knot on 11/11/11) and it appears Kim, 33, believes she is a mega A-list celebrity!

The reason? Kim, whose wedding is being filmed by Bravo for her new spin-off, is banning her guests from bringing cameras or even cell phones! “In order to protect our privacy on our special day, no cameras or cell phones will be allowed on property. A photo ID will be required for all guests upon entry,” reads the invitation. PHOTOS of Kim’s invitation is below!

And finally, Cynthia Bailey also promises “a lot of drama,” as she discloses there will be “tensions going on with a lot of the girls,” and in “[her] storyline especially.” And she lets us know that the unrest between her sister and husband, Peter Thomas is still going strong. Hey, she has to bring the chaos if she expects to stick around!

As for the ladies’ trip to Africa, rest assured it will be over the top! “Africa will never, ever, ever be the same,” Cynthia exclaims!

While Cynthia’s storyline will focus on the development of her new business, a modeling school, she guarantees viewers will get to see a “different” side of her from last season’s peace-keeper now that she’s learned the ropes of Reality TV 101: Bring the cray-cray! “I get a lot of payback this time,” she hints. I wonder if that means her friendship with NeNe has some issues?!

In case you haven’t seen all the Bravo ads, Season Four of RHOA premieres November 6th at 10/9c.

Thoughts on Phaedra’s comments about NeNe’s appearance on Celebrity Apprentice? Harsh or true? Is Kim delusional with her wedding invites?

Next month the fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres to drama, drama, drama! And below are the official cast photos and bios of the housewives!

This season will focus on new business ventures, changing and imploding relationships, and tons of gossiping, bickering, and back stabbing – Southern-style, of course!

The ladies also take a trip to Africa where their over the top antics take over the safari! Be sure to expect non-stop social events, parties, and excitement as the ladies go head-to-head in what is definitely the most exciting and climactic season yet!

A new housewife, Marlo Hampton will be joining the cast to stir up dramz with The NeNe, but she is not included in the official cast photos. Perhaps she’ll be making a mid-season entrance to make sure the cray-cray level stays at max capacity!

Below are the cast photos, bios and what to expect from the housewives this season. RHOA season 4 premieres Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c. Have I mentioned, I cannot wait?! Cause I can’t!

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?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta got together this week to help Cynthia Bailey celebrate the opening of her fashion school in Atlanta!

According to the TalkingWithTami blog, which was on hand to snap photos at the event, The Bailey Agency offers an intense six-week course with Cynthia, exploring the many different facets of modeling such as etiquette, walking the catwalk, posing, photography, film production, make-up amongst other things.

In attendance were all of Cynthia’s RHOA castmates including Nene Leakes, Kim Zolciak who shows off her post baby body (her first public appearance since giving birth to her son), Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, newbie Marlo Hampton and of course Sheree Whitfield who is pictured above with her Birkin bag and Cynthia.

This event will be featured on the 4th season of the RHOA which is currently filming. More photos from the event below!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta stepped out this week to support Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas, who alongside Robert “RL” Thomas of the R&B group Next, held a party in celebration of the opening of their new lounge BarOne in Atlanta.

If you recall, Peter, who was found not guilty this week of assaulting a former female employee, shut down his previous lounge/restaurant Uptown last year when it stopped doing well. No word yet on whether or not Cynthia also invested in this latest venture of Peter’s. And speaking of Cynthia, she recently opened up her own modeling agency called The Bailey Agency.

Metromix.com snapped photos at the event which was hosted by the one and only Nene Leakes. Above are housewives Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield with Peter. Below, more photos of all the housewives including Kandi Burruss.

In other news, it’s now been weeks since Kim Zolciak gave birth to her baby boy Kroy Jagger and we have still yet to see photos of the little one. Many are now wondering why as Kim is not one to shy away from cameras, even selling releasing her sensual pregnancy photos to the tabloids.

Well it appears Kim is planning to wait a little bit before releasing her baby’s pics. “I’m going to go with a month or two. She’s figuring it out,” said her rep to the Wetpaint website when asked about the baby’s photos. The site adds that Kim has already sold the photo rights to an as-yet-unnamed magazine.
