Ever since the fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta ended the buzz has been about producers adding two new Housewives – one tall, one small to the cast. While Kenya Moore has long been identified as the Team Tall addition, a bandy of names have been flying across the gossip channels (touting everyone imaginable who lives nearish to ATL) about who will be the second newcomer.
Well it would appear that Porsha Williams Stewart is has officially signed onto the show as the new lady!
First reporting on Porsha’s new job is StraightFromTheA, who insists that she is definitely the newest castmember. Other sites have said contracts have been signed. SFTA reveals that producers approached several ladies looking for the “It Factor” but no one seemed to work out. And then they met Porsha and signed her right away.
Real Housewives of Atlanta’sNeNe Leakes is one busy woman. Not only is she on a hit Bravo reality show, she’s guest starring on Glee and working on her new sitcom The New Normal. With all of that television craziness on her plate, she simply doesn’t’ have time to add another project into the mix. Sorry Donald Trump!
Apparently, The Donald had hoped The Neenster would join his famous brethren on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars. Unfortunately, the grueling schedule was just too much of a commitment for NeNe. She would have likely been too tired to bring drama of NeNe style proportions.
There are some changes coming on some of your favorite reality shows. From Michael Phelps to P. Diddy, and NeNe Leakes to Kendra Bell, read on to find out what’s rumored to be happening on some of your guiltiest pleasures!
Whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit that Real Housewives of Atlanta’sNeNe Leakes knows how to manage her career. She turned her gig on RHOA to a guest starring spot on Glee, which in turn led to scoring a recurring role on an upcoming sitcom. Back when Kim Zolciak was filming Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, there were rumors that NeNe was jealous for not getting her own spin-off. Well, it turns out she has had one in the works…I Dream of NeNe (amazing name, by the way). According to the Examiner, NeNe is the one who pulled the plug on the series because she felt at that time she wouldn’t be able to carry her own show. Apparently, NeNe did get a patent on the title, so the show could come to fruition in the future. Right now, she just wants to focus on her budding acting career. I guess good things do come to those who wait!
Apparently, NeNe declared “I’m divorced” on the Season 4 reunion, but that clip never aired. It’s no secret that at the end of last season, things weren’t looking very good for the couple. However, according so some sources, a reconciliation may be in the works for NeNe and Gregg.
It’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewedReal Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s book More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! along with her Wines By Wives club, her joint venture with Tamra Barney.
August was all about the Housewives of Atlanta – Kim Zociak, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. We gave Mary a month off from ‘testing’, as we don’t want to pay for her rehab nor be forced to co-author her memoir “Will Blog For Booze” and since I love me some cheap wine moscato, I took one for the team!
TamaraTattles has the scoop on what’s really been going down on this surely blessed and relaxing vacation. The girls have been partying non-stop on the beach – which is where the infamous photo of Phaedra Parks in a thong bikini came from (more on that below!).
The cast and crew arrived last Tuesday and are rumored to be staying at Modena Villa, a luxury resort renting for $5k a night in the off-season.
If you’ve sampled the wares – or want to – join us! We’ve been reading NeNe’s book and doing a Moscato-off. So, we’re putting in our two-cents. OK, it’s more like 50cents cause we have a lot of opinions, but whatever!
