Thanks to the Switch Up - NeNe Leakes wants to school pro Tony Dovolani on how Dancing with the Stars works. She insists it is all about her character. Tony says, "You have to understand that you're going from a dance that has no rules (jazz) to a dance that has a lot of rules (foxtrot)." NeNe responds, "Me becoming a character is a strong point of mine –Derek Hough had the ability to do that because of the dance." Tony adds, "Yeah, a dance with no rules."
NeNe obnoxiously carries on when Tony gives her direction. Tony jokes, "Such a good student – don't listen to anything I say." NeNe huffs, "Listen Tony, don't act like I'm not a good student. I'm <finger snap> an excellent student. Okay?!"
Tony encourages NeNe to try the move one more time, and she snaps, "I don't feel like it anymore. Goodbye. You're gonna have to come with a better attitude tomorrow. I am dead a$$ serious right now because you have a damn attitude today and that sh-t ain't gonna work. If you want to go back to Candace Bure, you should call production so you can go back to Candace so you can be happy. I've only give you the best that I got every day I've ever come here and danced with you. I don't deserve an attitude. Here's your mic, think about it."
Our favorite reality stars were on the prowl this week.
Ramona Singer let loose on the red carpet at the opening night after party for the musical 'Bullets Over Broadway'. Snooki &Jwoww attended the MTV Movie Awards. Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit up Coachella while sister Kourtney Kardashian made an appearance in Las Vegas (looking like she's attempting to hide a baby bump..). Lauren Manzo celebrated her birthday. Yolanda Foster stepped out with husband David – looking better than ever! Andy Cohen attended an ASPCA event with his dog while Carole Radizwill and LuAnn de Lesseps hung out at a cocktail party.
I will admit that I voted forNeNe and Derekfor the switch up. I wanted to see a traditional "two-hand hold" ballroom dance between the two; alas, that is not what happened. The picture above – SMH – is what happened. NeNe took to her DWTS blog to tell us what she really thought about Derek, the dance, and her horrid costume.
First, NeNe gushed (and gushed some more) about Derek. "Oooh, hunni I had so much fun in last week's Switch Up! Derek is awesome, he's young, he's creative, he's an amazing choreographer. It was just fun to switch it up and see what another dancer could do and what their creativity was like."
Back in 2012, Straight from the A reported on Pam's possible relationship with Gregg Leakes (complete with pics of her hanging with Bryson and his baby girl, NeNe's grandbaby). So, naturally it's a sore spot with NeNe. So imagine her fury when Cynthia hired Pam (a celeb publicist) to help her out.
A source close to the situation revealed to us, "Cynthia Bailey broke the number one rule in her and Nene Leakes FRIEND contract. DO NOT hang out with Greg's jumpoff."
Last night Bravo was up to some chicanery – telling us Real Housewives of Atlanta's finale was an hour and a half and then tacking on some sit-down special with NeNe Leakes for the last 30 minutes. I have to admit NeNe basically ripping up Cynthia Bailey's friendship contract and making it acid rain all over the WWHL stage was far more entertaining than any old memorial for Kenya Moore's dog on what looked like Chateau Sheree's dirt patch vacant grounds.
So anyway, Kandi Burruss and Todd have been through a lot in their relationship, most prevalently they have dodged the mighty weave-wearing bullet of Mama Joyce and her Wal-mart wedges being thrown at them from all angles. Now that they've done a MJ exorcism by developing the play A Mother's Love together, it's time to talk prenup. Kandi wants one and wants one she shall have – so long as the requests are reasonable according to Todd. Basically both parties leave with what they came in with and split everything they accrued together down the middle.
The ladies will close the season with as much drama as they opened with. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker celebrate their joint-creation of A Mother's Love, which hopefully Porsha Stewart will actually show up for!
And Kenya Moore will formally say good-bye to her beloved Velvet with a funeral. Next week the ladies head into the epic – and I mean that for real this time! – reunion where Porsha reportedly assaulted Kenya resulting in her getting fired.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 this week! Enjoy!
NeNe and Tony dropped by VH1's Big Morning Buzz to dish on all things DWTS and Housewives. I sometimes find NeNe a bit too full of herself, but that's also part of her charm, right? That is charm, isn't it? However, I love her rapport with Tony, and Nick just seems like someone fun to have coffee with first thing in the morning. It's a win-win!
