Was she, or wasn't she… fired, that is! It's the eternal question for any Housewife who has since ceased being a Housewife. The latest lady to hang up her wig is Kim Zolciak who recently did the tabloid rounds to insist she quit Real Housewives of Atlanta over negativity and to focus on her own spin-off, slated to air in April.
Well, NeNe Leakes tells a different story and she accuses Kim of some tall, tall tales! “It's so funny how this chick wants people 2 think she quit the show!” NeNe tweeted. “The producers no longer wanted 2 work wit u! Good bye wit the lies."
And just to make sure we all knew who the tweet was intended for, NeNeadded: “None of the girls or producers wanted 2 work wit her! Saving face like all the other ex housewives! U were FIRED! Good bye.”
I hope all of our U.S. readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends, and I hope that you're all recovering from your food comas better than this girl. Good gracious! I'm still uncomfortably stuffed (but happy!) from a giant delicious meal with twenty-five of my favorite chosen family, and I'm thankful that Evelyn Lozada never fails to make me giggle…when she's not throwing wine bottles. Bless her heart. Seriously. Bless it.
The Basketball Wives star loves being controversial (and violent), but she's also a bit of a narcissist (understatement) which leads to countless funny stories about the high regard in which she holds herself. This time around, Evelyn is patting herself on the back for being the subject of one of pop superstar Rihanna's latest songs. I'll let you stop laughing before I continue. Maybe it's not totally inconceivable, given that the pair does know each other, but I still think it's a stretch.
Quit, fired – semantics, right? Every retired Housewife tells the same old tale of woe that the show was too much drama, the fighting too intense, it wasn't the image they wanted people to have of them. Kim Zolciak is no exception. The woman who made wigs a household name (sorry Raquel Welch!), is spilling the details about why she left Real Housewives of Atlanta mid-filming.
In an exclusive with In Touch Weekly (do they have Andy Cohen's girls on retainer?), Kim tells the magazine that her pregnancy had a lot to do with why she left.
"I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama, I just had to walk," Kim insists. Apparently the stress of her own life, a new marriage, three children, and one on the way coupled with the nonsense of the show pushed her over the edge. "I've taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me."
Aaahhh… the holidays. So much to be thankful for, so many blessings to count. I don't know about y'all but I'm thankful for reality TV. I mean, what's not to love? I get to appreciate drama without personally getting involved, it makes me feel better about my own life, and I get paid to complain about said drama starters – while drinking wine.
So thanks Andy Cohen, et al for giving me a reason to be thankful. Because without the embarrassing antics of our favorite reality stars I'd be forced to actually focus on my own life. Ew.
Below are our favorite reasons we're thankful for reality TV this Thanksgiving.
Well, Happy Thanksgiving Kim Zolciak! And I warn you dear readers in advance – this a motherload of a post filled with information.
Unfortunately for poor Kim she is in a massive feud with her parents with multiple media reports (and twitter!) getting involved. If you recall, Kim's parents are fighting her for visitation of her two daughters Brielle, 15, and Arianna, 11, under "grandparents' rights."
After Kim's daughters told the judge presiding over the case that they had no interest in a relationship with their grandparents and the Real Housewives of Atlanta star said her mom was "unfit" and "disrespectful" among other things, Kim's father, Joe, released a statement calling her a "pathological liar" to TMZ.
Kim's attorney responded to Joe's comments writing: Kim is "heartbroken and saddened by the derogatory and spiteful statements made by her mother and father, Karen and Joe Zolciak."
"[Kim] cannot comprehend for what rational purpose her parents have decided to humiliate their grandchildren's mother in such a public display of hatred and fabrications."
Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta we met other new Housewife Porsha Stewart. What can we say about Porsha other than she's very, very, very, very, very, very blessed – and everything's, like, so perfect, like, all the time!
Porsha can pretty much be described as Kenya Moore's diametric opposite – a fact that has not escaped Kenya for one second. While Porsha grew up rich, doted on, and adored only to get married to a famous athlete and live as a socialite, as Kenya pointed out – she had to earn her own titles. Which may be why she clings onto an aging, tarnished, crown for dear life. When alls you've got is yesterday's honor and some Stuff Magazine covers, girl can't sit back on her booty and let the world forget!
Things begin with NeNe Leakes and ex-husband/current squeeze Greggalicious having a little one-on-one time. They head to Miss Lawrence's salon for some pedicures on giant, ridiculous, lacquered thrones. Gregg displays his talent for memorizing Hallmark cards and old wedding toasts by serenading an embarrassed NeNe with badly rhyming poems. All Gregg wants is a key. A key to NeNe's house, a key to her life, a key to her heart!
