Real Housewives of Atlanta is having all kinds of drama and it seems to surround the very rich Ms. NeNe Leakes!

After feuding with co-star Sheree Whitfield in the season premiere and taking more heat on last Sunday’s episode, NeNe is taking to her Bravo blog… and Twitter… and every single talk show in the stratosphere to get her side of the conflict heard while her cast mates are distracted by Kim Zolciak’s million dollar sparklefest tacky as hell wedding.

In her new blog titled oh so subtly “Hateration”, NeNe announces just that: “Hateration is in full effect!” Oh lawd! And she has a little advice for Sheree and Kim: “I’m a tough girl. I worked hard to get where I am, and I have earned every bit of it! It’s going to take an army to bring me down, so keep trying haters, but it’s not going to work!” Something tells me they’re up for the challenge…

She followed that up by Tweeting: “I’m glad y’all get 2 see these chicks on their full time job which is HATING on me” hehe (ok, it’s kinda funny since neither Sheree or Kim have what one might call gainful employment, unless you count famecourting!)

NeNe continues by taking digs at pretty much all of her co-stars. “It looks like I was Kim’s birthday gift after all,” NeNe zings. “Kim claims to be happy, but then she sits around talking about me!” Well, the same could be said for NeNe sitting around talking about Kim. Be honest, Lady Leakes – you all talk about each other!

“These girls love to put false information out there. I love the fact that I’m the topic of these boring girls’ conversation all the time! According to these girls I don’t have anything! No friends, no furniture, no teef teeth, no man, no money. NOTHING!”

As for Sheree, NeNe tweeted: “False information! Sheree has been n2 it wit Me,Kim,Dwight & Lisa! Um the pot can’t call the kettle black,” regarding last Sunday’s comments from “Man-Sheree” that NeNe fights with everyone.

She also accuses Kandi Burruss of “playing both sides of the fence”. “She listens over here and runs back over there to dish it,” NeNe admonishes! “Kandi said I have this ‘angry black woman syndrome,’ but how would she know! I’m never around Kandi, and I am black, but definitely not angry!” I think Star Jones and LaToya Jackson might have a different opinion, but ok!

NeNe wants us to know her life is just grand and looking a lot better than certain co-stars lives! “I have girlfriends I’ve been friends with for twenty years. My house has just the right amount of furniture for me. My teeth are prettier than any of these ladies, and I didn’t get them done for free!”

“And I’ve been in the longest relationship of any of these ladies. Fifteen years to be exact,” she adds. Wait – is she or is she not divorcing? Although true that Gregg Leakes and her were married for 15-years until Bravolebrity came along… NeNe also claims the only reason her co-stars take issue with Cynthia Bailey is because she is “friends” with her!

Making it clear that all that Hateration is motivated by Jealousy with a capital J, NeNe announces: “I’ve had the most success of all these ladies!” In case you have forgotten, NeNe is “very very rich!”  though she is now insulting our intelligence by claiming she didn’t mean financial wealth when she stated she was very rich, instead claiming she meant she was rich spiritually! Evidently, when she said she was cashing Trump checks, she also meant in a spiritual manner! But anyway, Nene is so rich in fact she is proving it by producing a t-shirt with her new catchphrase.

Following in Alex McCord’s “Thug In A Cocktail Dress” success, NeNe announced on Twitter that fans will now be able to purchase an “I’m Very Rich Bitch” Swarovski crystal emblazoned shirt for the affordable price of $150! NeNe doesn’t want any of us non-rich people pretending otherwise, I guess. A photo of the over-priced, crappy t-shirt is below. If you want one without “bitch” she’ll custom make you one. Bloop, bloop!

THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG? DOES SHE MAKE SOME GOOD POINTS ABOUT HER CO-STARS OR IS SHE ALSO GUILTY OF HATERATION? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF NENE’S NEW T-SHIRT? WOULD YOU BUY ONE?

BELOW IS A PICTURE OF NENE’S “I’M VERY RICH B*TCH” T SHIRTS!


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia have an all-girls weekend in Miami and I mean allll girls as it turns out to be lesbian pride weekend. Kim celebrates her 43rd 33rd birthday with a surprise party and Phaedra learns more about the mortuary business — like her husband Apollo is not down with owning a funeral home!

Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia are headed to Miami. Kandi is surprised she was invited since NeNe has never really liked her and all. NeNe probably thinks Kandi is on the outs with Kim over Tardy For The Party and is hoping to recruit her for Team N. Bravo gives us a little flashback of last year’s RHOA trip to Miami and it involved neck snappin’ and eyeball poppin’! When the ladies arrive at the incredibly posh hotel they are greeted with cocktails. My kinda place – and NeNe’s (she announces she lives for a cocktail)!

In a new interview Phaedra Parks talks about how the woman she plays on TV is an exaggeration of who she really is; claiming the producers encourage the ladies to play a part! Shockingly, Phaedra admits that the editors manipulate how the characters appear on screen!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, famous for her “Everybody knows…” statements and sassy commentary, reveals that while there is a part of her personality that is “silly and Southern-belle-esque” the producers “prefer” to show that side over her serious side. Phaedra wisely takes it with a grain of salt, explaining: “At the end of the day, I hope when people watch the show, they realize it’s for entertainment.”

“If you don’t have editing rights, you can say a lot of different things and once it’s on the editing table, it might look like something else,” she informs us. ”That’s part of reality TV. Everything on reality TV isn’t as real as you think it is.” Phaedra is well aware that she can act like the normal, sophisticated, professional woman she is almost all the time, but the minute she resorts to cattiness the producers will “air the dopey or catty quote.”

“I try to live without regrets,” she says of participating in the show. Adding she would not do anything differently from last season because the producers chose how each of the women are portrayed. “It doesn’t matter how careful you are. Whatever your character is, is what they make it to be,” she quips. “It’s not who I am but who the producers think I am.” Wow! Is someone trying to get their contract terminated!?

“For people who know me, they understand that. We each have distinct characters on the show. No one is one dimensional. Characters have to be consistent to the part they’re playing.”

Interestingly, Bravo recently released a comment chastising Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger for attempting to pitch a new reality show where all the characters were required to “act” a certain way for the story, saying they don’t produce shows with “stipulations” about how the participants behave!

Phaedra does not feel the show has changed her or affected her professional standing. “I still have the same friends. I am still doing the same things I was doing prior to ‘Housewives.’ ” So is D-wrong Eubanks her friend in real-life or a made for TV acquaintance?

Commenting about how appearing on TV as the ditzy Southern Belle may affect her legal career, Phaedra isn’t worried! “My reputation speaks for itself,” she declares. “The TV show hasn’t changed people’s thoughts about me. It makes me more recognizable.”

As for how the show merges her real-life with the show, Phaedra reveals she truly is friends with co-stars Kandi Burruss and Sheree Whitfield. “We speak quite a bit,” she says of Kandi. “I knew her prior to the show but this has afforded us more time to hang out with each other. I consider her part of my close circle of friends.”

Speaking about Sheree’s on-going custody and child support issues with ex-husband Bob Whitfield, Phaedra was more than happy to help! “Sheree and I have become close friends as well. Any time a friend comes for legal advice, I’ll do anything I can.” Phaedra was also a guest at co-star and friend Kim Zolciak’s 11-11-11 nuptials. A TwitPic of Phaedra, Kandi, and Patti attending the wedding is below!

There is one person Phaedra definitely does not share an off-screen relationship with – NeNe Leakes! “Obviously, we take a very long trip to Africa,” she snips.

As for her interest in the funeral business Phaedra assures us it’s very real! She has an interest in learning “all aspects” of the business and has even enrolled in part-time mortuary classes!

Moving on, tonight is an all-new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta! In the second episode of the season titled “Surprisingly Rich”, NeNe, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi take a trip to Miami after NeNe’s feud with Sheree. How they roped Kandi into that trip I’ll never understand! Also, Phaedra begins to seriously consider the funeral business and someone throws her a surprise birthday party!

The new episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

On Watch What Happens Live, the guest is none other than NeNe who I am sure will have plenty of comments about everyone and everything – including Kim’s wedding!

THOUGHTS ON PHAEDRA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE HER STATEMENTS ABOUT BRAVO MANIPULATING HOW THE WOMEN ARE PORTRAYED OR IS SHE BLAMING EDITING?


11/11/11…if you’re Kim Zolciak you probably wished for a fairy tale wedding, which is exactly what the Real Housewives of Atlanta star got yesterday when she married Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann at a lavish ceremony in Atlanta.  Who was on hand to help her celebrate? A slew of Bravolebrities and a famous blogger (no, no one from here at RT unfortunately :)).

While there has been no confirmation yet regarding the attendance of her fellow cast mates, one could place bets that a few of the RHOA ladies were there to throw rice and raise a toast. Kim’s once wig-tugging friend Sheree Whitfield, her producer rainmaker songwriter pal Kandi Burruss who sort of helped her a little with her “Tardy for the Party” hit and fellow over-the-top soiree throwing Phaedra Parks were likely on hand to watch Kim and Kroy’s nuptials.

It’s more questionable that Cynthia Bailey received an invitation given the ladies tense friendship, but stranger things have happened. As for NeNe Leakes, Kim’s former BFF, it’s safe to say she would probably rather get stuck in an elevator with Star Jones and LaToya Jackson than watch her nemesis walk down the aisle.

Also on hand from Bravo was everyone’s favorite (ahem) matchmaker Patti Stanger, who tweeted, “Hanging in ATL @doubletree with my bestie Jackie from @life_and_style as we prepare for @Kimzolciak’s wedding…we are so excited! X0” Perhaps she was able to drum up some new “clients” at the reception. She later updated her Twitter to say, “No phones allowed at @Kimzolciak’s wedding, so no tweeting/photos, I will give you the fun facts after. X0.”

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was also Twittering from the ATL about the big event, saying, “@Kimzolciak So happy to be here to celebrate your special day with you! Much love, happiness, peace and health!!! xoxo ” Perhaps my invitation got lost in the mail?

Even celebrity event planner Colin Cowie took to Twitterverse about his role in the whole to-do. He stated, “Stunning bride, handsome groom — a super glam and chic affair!” Wait, what? D-wight Eubanks wasn’t the wedding planner? For shame!

Not one to be out-tweeted on her own wedding day, Kim gave a shout out to the bakery that made the couple’s cake. She exclaimed, “Omg thank you Highland Bakery for my amazing wedding cake! Absolutely breathtaking I cried when I saw it! It is exactly what I wanted!!!” I hope that crying didn’t mess up her make-up!

Without a doubt, Kim’s two daughters from her first marriage — thirteen-year-old Brielle and nine-year-old Ariana — were a huge part of Kim’s big day. Kim also has a baby boy with her new groom, Kroy Jagger, or K.J. as his infant friends call him.

Kim herself was on cloud nine on her wedding day, telling Life & Style, “This has been the happiest day of my life. It’s been perfect. It’s been a dream come true.” Of her brand new hubby, she gushes, “He makes me a better person. I love everything about him.” Awww…. Best wishes to the happy couple!

Oh, Real Housewives of Atlanta how I missed your crazy ways! It’s a new season… with the same intros? Bravo? What’s up with that!? On last night’s season premiere episode Kim prepared for her new life with Kroy and KJ, NeNe and Sheree got crazy, Phaedra found her new calling, Cynthia debuted The Bailey Agency and Kandi well… she was vibrating with excitement over a new business venture.

Things start out with a super prego Kim — and I think her wig is getting bigger as her bump grows — along with Sweetie and Kroy cleaning out her storage unit. Apparently, Kim and Kroy are moving into her dream home and she is planning to fill it with all the furniture Big Poppa paid for! While Kim sits in the car and drinks a slurpy, Kroy does all the heavy lifting. Kim seems happy yet warns Kroy he better not hurt his money maker hauling Big Poppa’s furniture around – she needs his booty to bring home those checks! She still can’t get over his booty either! Is Kroy a stripper or her boyfriend? Kim reflects on the differences between Big Poppa and Kroy: Big Poppa wouldn’t move a tissue, Kroy is a real man who lifts other man’s furniture, Big Poppa was married and Kroy isn’t, oh and Kroy’s ring is going to mean a thing! I missed Kim’s trashy!

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?

Sheree Whitfield

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s sassy fashionista, Sheree Whitfield is talking about what’s in store for the new season (hint: plenty of drama!) and giving us some dirt on her relationship with the notorious NeNe Leakes (hint: it no longer exists outside of reality TV!).

In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister, Sheree reveals that she definitely does not exaggerate who she is for the cameras! “It’s really my life,” she insists. “Maybe some of the other people are putting on. I know someone in particular who’s put on since season 1, but it’s my real life. I’m not pretending to be something I’m not. I’m not the amp-up girl. It’s real.” (Ahem… NeNe?)

“I spent a lot of time with my family. We have a great time,” she says of the good things in season four. “There’s no drama there … love and fun times.” Sheree’s storyline will also focus on resolving her never-ending child support dispute with ex-husband Bob Whitfield with a little help from her friend, Phaedra Parks! “He’s not paid in a long time,” Sheree explains. “The kids and I are fine. So, I really didn’t stress it, but every now and then, I’d make comments to him, and it was just something that probably should have been done a long time ago, but we’re just starting to take action now.”

While drama in her personal life is at a minimum, rest assured that’s not the case with certain co-stars! “You’ll definitely see another side of me,” she warns. ”I’m always in the midst of something. I try to stay away from it, and I’m constantly being pulled in.”

Claiming she doesn’t like “drama” but sometimes it’s unavoidable, Sheree promises: “I’m not going to start anything. it’s only so much a person can take. I try to avoid you as long as I can, but I can finish it in the end. I try to avoid it, but you can only do so much, especially when you have ignorant people around you.” Sheree – never cause drama? Someone needs to check you, Boo!

Never one to mince words, Sheree is certainly not sparing feelings when it comes to her former friend, now co-star and “acquaintance” NeNe! Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show with fellow Housewives Phaedra and Kandi Burruss the ladies gave the inside scoop on what’s up with the ever-so demure Ms. Leakes!

“We were friends a long time ago,” Sheree reveals. “NeNe has really changed. The fame has totally changed her. It’s gone to her head. She just feels like she’s bigger than everybody.” Apparently, that attitude is what led to a huge blowout between the co-stars!

Sheree believes her close friendship with Kim Zolciak furthered the rift in her relationship with NeNe, ultimately leading to the irreparable altercation! “It was an appearance that I had to do; I brought NeNe in on it — actually Kim, as well — and she tried to pull from me and Kim, what we were getting,” Sheree divulged.

“I don’t care about all the other things that she does, or things that she says ‘cause it really doesn’t affect me ‘cause we’re really not friends like that. We’re acquaintances,” she insists, but “when you try to pull money or take money from me, that’s just really low.”

Kandi confirms that there is a serious divide between the cast mates! “All of us don’t necessarily talk to everybody like that,” she reveals. “They started calling everybody the ‘smalls’ and the ‘talls’ by the end of the season. The taller group of us hung out and the smaller group of us would hang out.” Wow – so I’m expecting a very ummm… outrageous season and an even crazier reunion!

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4 premiers Sunday, November 6th at 10/9c on Bravo!

And tonight, Bravo is planning to air a special 15-minute first look at the new season starting at 9/8c.
