Sources say the friends, turned enemies, turned friends had planned to shoot The Road To Riches in between Real Housewives Of Atlanta seasons and it would premiere in the fall after Don’t Be Tardy and as a precursor to RHOA season 8, but massive RHOA casting drama, along with the Kim and NeNe’s crazy schedules kept sidelining filming.
We can always count on the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta to keep it 100! And to prove it they celebrated their 100th episode by spilling-all to Andy Cohen. “The Atlanta women are funny! We’re honest and real, and we never bite our tongues,” describes Kim Zolciak of the pride that comes with RHOA.
All of the Housewives – past and present – feel the success of the show and also its magic was that it showcased affluent African-American women. I have to ask, other than Kandi Burruss: Who are these affluent Housewives again? Certainly they’re not referring to SheBySheBroke?! (“A fashion show with no fashions?! How dreadful!”). And then they dish on bad hair (NeNe Leakes is voted the worst), bad fashions (no declarative winner) and worst fight (again, no declarative winner).
I was hoping Sheree and Lisa Wu-Hartwell would be appearing but they didn’t! My favorite part was seeing the ladies’ audition tapes – first of all how freaking different does NeNe look? But how freaking the same is her ego – large and in charge of everything!
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Ch-ch-chaaanges are in the air over at Real Housewives Of Atlanta headquarters (aka Bravo). NeNe Leakes definitely quit, which led to the show undergoing some serious casting shifts to bring in new ladies that represent the fabulous ATL lifestyle.
While NeNe admits to being nervous about the uncharted terrain (and no RHOA to come crawling back to), she’s excited for her fans to see “something different that you guys have never seen me do before.” What – have manners?
“Fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one-liners that I have said on [Housewives],” NeNe explains. And she’s definitely thrilled to be leaving the negativity of RHOA behind!
Rumors have been swirling that NeNe, who left the show for a primetime gig with Betty White, quit as a hardball tactic to command a higher salary in order to come back as a ‘Friend of the Housewives’ for season 8.
NeNe is putting an end to the speculation, saying she is “definitely” taking this season off and will not appear at all – even in a guest role. “I love Bravo – they’re my family – I may pop up and play with those girls and every now and then. I’m sure I’ll come back at some point, I just won’t come back in season 8,” she clarifies.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kyle Richards, Jenni Pulos, and Shannon Beador, love to show off their adorable kids on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest family photos from the past few weeks.
NeNe Leakes‘s dream has become a reality – she’s ditching her role as a Real Housewife for network TV! The Very Rich Bitch has been dropping hints that her new career move is a major step up – and that definitely seems to be the case!
