On the 14th episode of the season (the finale is next week), NeNe’s first on-air interview with rapper-producer Jermaine Dupri creates tension with Kim. Elsewhere, financial problems continue Peter and Cynthia. Meanwhile Phaedra struggles to balance career and family; and Kandi tires of Kim’s bus-tour shenanigans.
The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Nene Leakes and Iman.
In other Atlanta news, while promoting her upcoming appearance on the Celebrity Apprentice, Nene dropped a bombshell to Zap2It when she revealed she is not interested in returning to the Atlanta Housewives for a 4th season.
“I’m not really interested in joining the next season,” NeNe told Zap2it. “I’m just not really interested right now,” she repeated without revealing her sudden lost of interest in continuing the show. Could this be a ploy for contract negotiations? Does it have to do with the recent reunion show taping? Only time will tell.
Nene did reveal however that she is currently working on a shoe line and a handbag line, to go along with her desire to do behind-the-scenes producing radio and TV shows.
And finally, Nene recently tweeted photos of she and Cynthia Bailey from the reunion show taping. Those are below. A preview clip from tonight’s episode is also below -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE WANTING TO LEAVE THE SHOW PLUS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
It all started when Cynthia decided to pull her good pal Nene Leakes to the side and clear the air on some of the issues they had been having. Cynthia handed Nene a candle gift and then handed her a friend contract which stated it had to be notarized and signed by the President. The joke was lost of Nene who deemed her a “Single Black Female” and declared the situation as awkward. Nene then met up with on-again off-again friend Kim Zolciak and showed her the contract, leading to a laugh fest with Kim calling Cynthia a crazy stalker.
Below is what Cynthia had to say about the situation in her latest Bravo blog -
NeNe: Single black female. A very FRIENDly thing to say.
So let me get this straight. Last week Peter and NeNe go at it, this week they kiss and make up, and now, all of a sudden, I am SINGLE BLACK FEMALE, who happens to be a lesbian, and is in love with NeNe? I want Nene, NeNe wants Peter, and Peter just wants the Jets to win the Superbowl. Does this even begin to make sense? Crisis!
Where do I start? The FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT. Here we go. At this point on the show, we are all in a bad place, all three of us. Peter with UPTOWN, NeNe with Gregg, and me with the wedding and Peter’s Uptown situation. Everybody is stressed out, and my friendship with NeNe is definitely on the rocks. I have a great sense of humor, so I decided that the next time I ran into NeNe, AS A JOKE, I would give her a FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT. AS A JOKE! As you guys know, the word friend does not carry a lot of weight with this group, so I thought the idea of giving NeNe a contract was hilarious!
I imagined that we would read it, laugh hysterically, grab a glass of wine (as usual), give each other a big hug, and call it a day. NeNe is one of the craziest friends I have, and one of the reasons we talk so much on the phone is because we are both very silly. NeNe has been good for a laugh or two when I really needed one, and I just wanted to return the favor. My FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT was for NeNe’s eyes only, and I never thought for a second anyone else would see it. It was supposed to just be a funny joke between friends, and that would be the end of it. Clearly, it didn’t work out that way. You guys saw the turn of events after we left Kim’s kitchen, and at that point it just got too ridiculous for me to even go there. The only thing that I wanted to make clear (as if it wasn’t obvious in the first place), is that the FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT was a joke, that’s it. That’s all it was ever meant to be. It was supposed to be funny, and I actually thought it was. I really cracked myself up about the whole thing. Well, excuse me for having a sense of humor.
Anyway, for anyone who may be interested in getting a copy of my FRIENDSHIPCONTRACT for any of your friends, just let me know. The cost is $19.99 per contract which includes shipping and handling. If you act now, I’ll even throw in an autographed picture of myself for FREE. Like in my case, even if your FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT blows up in your face, and your friends start calling you a stalker and a lesbian, at least you will still have the autographed picture of me. FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT t-shirts and hats will also be available upon request. Only one per customer, as quantities are limited.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT DEBACLE?
Peter, 50, opens up about his life and why he proposed to Cynthia, 43, despite her reservations about marriage. When it comes to Phaedra, Peter simply believes “she’s an idiot” when it comes to the comments she makes. Excerpts from Peter’s interview below -
ESSENCE.com: We don’t know that much about you. Do tell.
THOMAS: I’m Jamaican-born, Brooklyn-raised, lived in Miami, had seven or eight nightclubs in South Beach for the past 20 years. I’m a New York, Miami dude, and I lived in London for a while. I get around, and Atlanta’s new to me. My parents live here.
ESSENCE.com: Cynthia hasn’t been shy about her reservations towards marriage. What did you think of that?
THOMAS: I’ve heard about Cynthia Bailey for the last 21 years of my life. You know Russell Simmons proposed to her, she turned him down. Jayson Williams made a public half-time announcement on TV, she took the ring and gave it back. People that I know, even exes, talk so well about her. She’s an independent person and I love that about her. She likes to know that she has her own and I understand why because of her mom. I respect women who are like Cynthia because I’m not one of those guys who think men are superior to women. I used to date Nia Long and she was making like $800,000 a movie, and I was cool with it.
ESSENCE.com: What did you really think of Phaedra’s comments about wanting a “clean” man?
THOMAS: Phaedra is like 36, 37 years old and word around town is she’s dated a couple of rappers she represented, so when she says “clean” she probably means someone that doesn’t have baggage so she doesn’t have to deal with mothers from previous relationships. My point to her was I’m a grown man and I have five kids, and there’s really nothing wrong with it. I would understand if she was like 22 and getting married but as old as she is saying that… the only reason Apollo is “clean” is because he’s been incarcerated for the last six years. She’s an idiot. That’s how I really feel about the statements that come out of her mouth.
ESSENCE.com: How do you feel about the other castmates?
THOMAS: I don’t really know them enough. I’ve been around Sheree a few times and she’s always cordial. NeNe, she’s loud. I could be around NeNe, she could definitely be my homegirl. Kandi’s a really nice person, and Kim’s just crazy.
In other Atlanta news, Phaedra Parks gave a recent interview to a local GA news station – wjbf.com, during which she disucussed being a new mom and also touches on her portrayal on the Bravo hit show.
“Its very exciting, I don’t have anything to compare it to since it is my first child, but I adore my son. He’s wonderful, he’s really a sweet baby,” says Phaedra while also revealing that she had a high risk pregnancy and 3 days of labor.
When it comes to her “portrayal” on the show, Phaedra adds that “at the end of the day, it’s reality tv and so reality tv is about drama it’s about suspense.” Phaedra’s video interview is below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PETER’S COMMENTS AND PHAEDRA’S INTERVIEW?
On the first Sunday night episode this season, titled ‘Trashed Collection,’ NeNe introduces her troubled son Bryson to Peter Thomas, Cynthia’s boyfriend and club owner, hoping he will inspire her son to find a career path. Meanwhile, Cynthia’s ex-fiance, actor Leon Robinson, discusses Peter’s ultimatum with Cynthia.
While planning a high-end yard sale, Kim finds time for her music career and begins work on her new track with more than a little help from Kandi. Things get heated between the two when creative differences arise. Already puzzled with Phaedra’s ever-changing due date, the ladies are shocked to hear she’ll be inducing her baby “early.” NeNe’s marriage troubles come to a boiling point when she reveals a dark relationship secret to Cynthia.
The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c. A new episode of Watch What Happens Live will air following the show. The guest tonight will be Cynthia Bailey.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE ATLANTA HOUSEWIVES?
The latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us some awkward sex talks and a slightly uncomfortable scene involving the always classy Phaedra and some pickles.
With the said, let’s get right to the recap! The episode begins with Kim Zolciak being yet again late to another event. This event in particular is Kandi’s web talk show titled Kandi Coated Nights! Following yet another scene with Kim berating her assistant Sweetie, she finally finds her way to Kandi’s studio, and the topic of conversation is Cheating! Something Kim knows an awful lot about despite trying to pretend her relationship with the still married Big Poppa has no cheating element to it.
“I only know what Papa tells me,” is Kim’s argument. Perhaps Kim should invest some time in using the google search engine as a quick search on Big Poppa will clearly let her know he is still married and living with his wife and kids.

The episode starts out with Nene Leakes paying a visit to her plastic surgeon with her BFF Diana, whom we’ve never seen on the show before. Nene is determined to get her happy back, and what better way to do that than with new boobs, a new nose and a new stomach. Oddly enough, Nene doesn’t discuss a nose job with the Surgeon though she does hint to the doctor that she might decide to do something else on the day of the surgery.

On the 4th episode this season, titled ‘Petty Boughetto,’ Cynthia and her boyfriend Peter join Phaedra and Dwight for a day at the Steeple Chase, but before they can even arrive, Cynthia and Peter are put on the spot on the future of their relationship.
And it is a true down south, ladies-who-lunch celebration when the day of Phaedra’s baby shower finally arrives! But when some of the other ‘wives continue to chatter about Phaedra’s less-than-perfect father-to-be, will it spoil the special day? Also, former housewife Lisa Wu Hartwell makes a special appearance at Phaedra’s baby shower.
We will also get to see Nene Leakes as she undergoes her nose job. The new episode airs tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
In other Atlanta news, Bravo announced today that starting November 7, the Real Housewives of Atlanta will move to Sunday nights at 10/9c. Watch What Happens Live will also be making the move to Sunday. No reason was given for the change in schedule.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
Time to recap the 3rd episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta titled ‘White Hot.’
This episode brought us fame monsters, threats to unborn babies and the magical appearance of Sheree’s eldest daughter. The episode starts out with Kim Gaga verbally abusing her assistant Sweetie, while also packing for her big live concert in front of the biggest gay dance party in the universe. Evidently, lip syncing to an auto-tuned backtrack takes a lot of preparation.
Nene takes her youngest son Brent out for a walk in the park. The two share a tender mother and son moment during which Nene brings up the topic of Bryson’s arrest. Nene states in her interview that she did not want to go into the arrest details with Brent due to his young age, but something tells me at age 11, Brent is well aware of all that is going on around him.
