Oh, it's so sad when the holidays are over. I don't know about you but I get post-Christmas depression. So instead lets gawk at how our favorite reality stars spent their holidays! Below are tweets and photos for the holiday wrap up. Enjoy!
I think the last term anyone would use to describe Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPhaedra Parks would be "wallflower." However, the outspoken Southern belle from Bravo's hit has been MIA lately, both on Twitter and on her show's blog. Many speculated that there was tension between her and Apollo Nida thanks to co-star Kenya Moore's relentless flirting with Phaedra's husband. Unfortunately, Kenya's inappropriate behavior has nothing to do with Phaedra's media absence.
Phaedra recently spoke out regarding her hiatus from all things social media, and my heart goes out to her. She now reveals that both she and her husband have both lost their maternal grandmothers. While I am sure both Phaedra and Apollo are grateful for having their grandmothers in their lives for so long, it's never, ever easy to lose a cherished family member, especially so close to the holidays. My positive thoughts are with both of them and their families.
Well it's the day before Christmas, commonly known as Christmas Eve, and all anyone on the island of Anguilla wants is for Kenya Moore to get some help – and go home! Going on vacation with crazy people is one of those unfortunate drawbacks of being on Real Housewives of Atlanta, I s'pose.
Things begin with Kenya storming away after her massive argument with Porsha Stewart. Alas, no one could agree on who is the real tramp so they both stood up and started bickering about who is more fabulous. Answer: None of the above.
NeNe Leakes is cackling so loud that her evil plan to expose the real Kenya worked that I thought lightening would descend from the sky. Far more generously, Cynthia Bailey admits that a lot of the stuff Porsha said about Kenya's age would have made her flip out too.
NeNe is pleased as punch that there goes Kenya letting her crazy sprinkle out and finally explode all over the place. But Kenya has another surprising ally in Phaedra Parks. Phaedra admits that Kenya's ghetto behavior was out of line, but she likes Kenya and thinks she just lacks appropriate communication skills. Poor Kandi Burruss was in the hot tub and missed the whole thing. #priorities #kandikoatednights
Here at RT, our job is to snark on all things reality television, be it stars, shows, or just general gossip. I'm not going to lie…it can be a lot of fun, and usually the people, programs, and situations make it super easy to write (hopefully) hilarious blog posts. However, when one of us is fortunate enough to get to interview one of the reality stars we normally joke about, it's a wake-up call…in a good way!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak with former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield about what has been going on in her life now that she is no longer involved with Bravo. I'll be honest, I was a tad bit nervous. It's not every day you get to have a conversation with someone you watched religiously on TV, especially when part of your job is to spew humor at her expense. I'm from a city in South Carolina just two hours from Atlanta, and the ATL was a favorite stomping ground in college and remains a shopping mecca for people in my neck of the woods. That said, RHOA and its stars have always held a special place in my heart. I'll likely never eat at RHOBH'sLisa Vanderpump's SUR (sigh), but it's really cool to see the women of Atlanta dining and shopping places I've actually been. Of course, when I graced those restaurants and boutiques I ate a side salad and purchased nada.
Sorry for digressing, but I felt the need to share part of the reason why I was so excited to chat with Sheree. She couldn't have been more professional, kind, and gracious. Sheree dished on her new jewelry line, her plans for the future, her gratitude towards her fans, and her thoughts on RHOA.
Last night the ladies ofReal Housewives of Atlanta lost one Wig Zolciak and gained one Porsha Stewart – officially – and then they said good riddance to bad rubbish and headed to paradise. Sadly it was a bit of paradise lost when Kenya Moore lost it and got frisky, handsy, desperate and crazy. I don't ever want to hear her telling anyone how they should behave again after she fondled two women's husbands and solicited a concierge for a sperm donation. On twitter she blamed her antics on the "ah ah ah ah alcohol" Girl – there are no words.
Things pick off where they left off last week with Kim storming out of the restaurant during the pre-Anguilla planning brunch. Kim stomps outside and immediately smacks a camera man, telling him, "get the f–k out of my face!" The camera crew laughs and is like, 'Please bitch, it's called a contract and you signed one!'
This is cue for Kroy Biermann (remember when we all thought he was so nice and sweet and too good for Kim?) to leap from the waiting Escalade – still driving the car Big Poppa bought, I see – and start screaming and threatening the camera crew. Oh Gomer Pyle you're so tuff. You lose your dignity over lady wig and you yell that f-word loud and proud so your mama in Montana can hear. Right. So anyone else so tired of the wigs and cigs hour?
After that the camera man reminds Kroy that Bravo will slap his butt with a lawsuit and that's not the sort of being f–ked he wants to deal with so better get in the car and drive away.
And with that Wig and Gomer drove off to the townhouse Big Poppa bought and Kim screamed "I'm done!"
Never a dull moment in the land of wigs and cigs, eh? Kim Zolciak has had one helluva a shitty year. I mean, sure she got a hubby, a spinoff, and a baby out of it, but otherwise it's been bad news blues. An eviction, a possible firing, a public and nasty feud with her parents, and now she apparently owes the IRS big time. Time to pawn some wigs and Versace china, girl.
A source NeNe tells Celeb Dirty Laundry that the formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star is in hot water with the IRS because she hasn't paid taxes in 10 years and owes them $7 million dollars! Um… what? I didn't know being a mistress was considered taxable income. 1099?
The news comes from a "close family member" who shares Kim has been committing tax fraud for years by not paying taxes on "hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts" Big Poppa gave her. Apparently while they were fauxgaged, he was also shelling out a reported $250,000 for her spending allowance. He also unsuccessfully tried to limit her spending to $150,000 per month.
So last night Real Housewives of Atlanta was filled with Wig People Problems. Oh, wigs were disappearing and telling tall tales and making excuses and dealing with dog poop and storming out and doing some math wrong and disappearing. There were wignanigans all over the place.
And luckily NeNe Leakes was on hand to provide riotous commentary on every last wigantic. And she finally got to use her Wig Be Gone (sold separately, includes S&H) – and poof! Kim Zolciak, her wig collection, and her stories that change as often as said wigs fled in the wake of a Housewives revolt. And we bid her adieu. Will we miss her? Sure. I mean, she is a snark lovers dream!
Other things happened last night, Kenya Moore's crazy got even MORE crazy as she turned her attentions towards another lady's man. Cynthia Bailey tried to pretend that going on vacation with all the ladies of the RHOA was her dream come true. Yeah, but instead of speaker phone invites (the classic!) we got sit down personalized invites.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t 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!
