I still can’t believe that Sheree Whitfield’s mansion is finally “finished.” Sure, that last word is debatable, but we all have to agree that the house did look gorgeous (for the most part). Plus, the Chateau Sheree housewarming party brought some great drama to finish out the Real Housewives of Atlanta season… before the reunion. So obviously Sheree had a lot to say about it during her Watch What Happens Live appearance last night.
Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
We can always count on the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta to keep it 100! And to prove it they celebrated their 100th episode by spilling-all to Andy Cohen. “The Atlanta women are funny! We’re honest and real, and we never bite our tongues,” describes Kim Zolciak of the pride that comes with RHOA.
All of the Housewives – past and present – feel the success of the show and also its magic was that it showcased affluent African-American women. I have to ask, other than Kandi Burruss: Who are these affluent Housewives again? Certainly they’re not referring to SheBySheBroke?! (“A fashion show with no fashions?! How dreadful!”). And then they dish on bad hair (NeNe Leakes is voted the worst), bad fashions (no declarative winner) and worst fight (again, no declarative winner).
I was hoping Sheree and Lisa Wu-Hartwell would be appearing but they didn’t! My favorite part was seeing the ladies’ audition tapes – first of all how freaking different does NeNe look? But how freaking the same is her ego – large and in charge of everything!
Yesterday, Bravo announced that Real Housewives of Atlanta season 8 is a go, as if there was any doubt. While the show will move forward without its last remaining original cast member, NeNe Leakes, she’ll no doubt be a big part of the 100th episode special. A big, loud, and obnoxious part.
On Sunday, July 12th, Bravo will air the Real Housewives of Atlanta: 100th Episode Watch What Happens Live Special. “The one-hour special will take a trip down memory lane and relive the series’ most unforgettable and buzziest moments,” announced Bravo. “From shady digs to an array of wigs, Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen pulls back the curtain on one of reality TV’s most-talked about shows and sits down with Housewives past and present to get the scoop on how the series has affected their lives.”
Kim, 32, brought along her mom Karen (the woman responsible for the wig legend),and her two daughters. Above is a picture of Kim and her mother. “It was a closed practice and she sat in the family section while she cheered him on. She had so much fun, and she’s very supportive of him,” says Kim a source to InTouch.
And did we mention Kroy, 24, is not married?
In other Atlanta news, former star of the show DeShawn Snow has now put her Atlanta mansion up for sale. Yes this is the same mansion that DeShawn and husband Eric Snow were shown moving into during the first season of the show.
Homesoftherich reports “the 15,000 square foot mansion is located in Alpharetta, GA and boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 6 half bathrooms, floating staircase, 2-story great room, formal dining room, 2-story family room, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, 6-car garage, paneled gentlemen’s study, separate ladies office, home theater, wine cellar, billiards room, card room, recreational room with large custom bar, hair salon, steam shower, dry sauna, basketball court, swimming pool with spa, and a gazebo with fireplace.”
It seems just like last month we were reporting the shocking news that Eric Snow, husband of DeShawn Snow had gotten his mistress pregnant. Well that was then and this is now as the mistress has now delivered a baby girl for Eric.
StraightFromTheA is reporting the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who only filed for divorce back in May, became a dad again on July 14th, as his mistress Marisela Alvarado gave birth to a healthy 8-pound baby girl whom the couple have named Ava Maria Snow. A picture of the baby is below.
While the divorce is still ongoing for the Snows, reports state that Eric, a former NBA player, is worth $20 million and might have to shell out an estimated $8 million dollars to DeShawn along with the Atlanta mansion the couple shared with their three sons.
Eric has yet to publicly comment on his divorce or mistress. DeShawn however seems to be moving on and is said to be working on a Disney project for her three sons. DeShawn is reportedly in talks with the network to cast her three sons, Eric Javon, Darius Michael, and Jarren Christopher in a major Disney deal, which involves a television pilot.
Fast forward to today and there is now more news on what caused the actual split between the two. According to the StraightFromTheA, and FreddyO blogs, a pregnant mistress is to blame.
A source reveals to FreddyO that Eric left his wife of 12 years, DeShawn, for his pregnant girlfriend. The alleged pregnant mistress is Marisela Alvarado, who happens to be a former Michigan State classmate of Eric’s. A picture of Marisela with Eric from their class reunion is below.
Another source tells the StraightFromTheA blog that Eric’s cheating ways isn’t a surprise, as he was always a cheater during his marriage to DeShawn and was very open with his cheating.
“During the first season of the real housewives of Atlanta, Deshawns husband would be on camera talking to other women on the phone, flirting with other women and/or cursing her out all on camera as if no one was watching. A couple of times, the producers had to remind him that the cameras were recording.”
Eric filed for divorce back in May and has yet to publicly comment on the cheating allegations.
