Following a TMZ report last year that Bryson was arrested after shoplifting razors from a local Walmart, there are numerous reports this morning that Bryson was hospitalized following a brutal bar fight.
Sources tell the StraightFromTheA blog that Bryson got into an altercation, at a local Atlanta night spot during an argument with another patron over a girl.
Words were reportedly exchanged and the two young men came to blows, resulting in Bryson being escorted to the hospital with several head wounds and a broken jaw. Other reports state Bryson also suffered multiple broken bones in his face. Yikes.
Nene however took to her twitter late yesterday to issue a non-denial denial. The Nene tweeted: “Don’t get me wrong, I love 2 b prayed 4 but sendin me well wishes about a bunch of lies is just crazy! The sh*t yall read & believe.”
Unfortunately for Nene, she forgot to get the denial memo to her son Bryson, who tweeted that he was indeed in the hospital and on pain killers. Bryson tweeted: “Soon as the doc bring wat i need i go 2 sleep,” later adding: “Yay dey jus walked n wit my meds ill be on da moon in 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 q.”
Alrighty. Moving on to Kim Zolciak and her former assistant Sweetie Hughes! If you recall, the two had a falling out late last year for reasons they never revealed, which led to Kim firing her. The duo, however, appear to have made up last month.
Well, according to a new report/blind item, a source is claiming Kim fired Sweetie because Sweetie allegedly stole from her and brought people into her home. It gets even better, as the source states Kim would never speak negatively of Sweetie, because Sweetie has a ton of dirt on her! Now that I believe!
“One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!
Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!”
Ai ya ya. All very interesting!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRYSON BEING INVOLVED IN A DANGEROUS BAR FIGHT? DO YOU BELIEVE THE BLIND ITEM ABOUT SWEETIE AND KIM?
Marlo, Marlo, Marlo… I’m almost afraid to write anything controversial about Ms. Marlo Hampton because she scares me a little bit. Anyways, last week Marlo showed viewers her true colors feisty side when she went head to head with Sheree Whitfield.
Among the cray-cray accusations flying back and forth between two ladies of questionable means was the suggestion that Marlo has an 80-year-old white sugar daddy and that Sheree has quite the reputation as a shop’n swapper, akaJill Zarin-ing the merchandise by wearing it with the tags on and then returning it!
Well, that got the blogosphere’s ears perked up and several people started investigating just who Ms. Hampton’s allegedly Big Poppas are! The blog Diary Of A Hollywood Street King got the scoop on Marlo’s relationship status, and was told by a source they consider reliable that Marlo is allegedly the mistress to none other than mogul, Atlanta dweller, and CNN founder Ted Turner! Ted, pictured below, while not quite 80, is actually a very dignified 73 – and he is very, very rich.
Now remember this is all alleged information and none of it is to be taken as fact. “Ted Turner was Marlo’s sugar daddy. My understanding is that Marlo is one of the reasons why Jane Fonda divorced Ted Turner,” the insider exposes. “Ted Turner is the ‘sponsor’ who financed the The Red Carpet Boutique Marlo had at the Perimeter mall in ATL. Marlo knows how to get money, she’s a true hustler.” Marlo owned a boutique? Please tell me one of you amazing readers has been there!
Following up on the story is Atlanta’s StraightFromTheA blog, who learned from one their readers that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star may have another source of, ahem… income, other than Ted. Allegedly, of course.
Apparently speculation is that Marlo was previously the girlfriend of a high-profile drug dealer from her days in Florida and this is where the majority of her money comes from. Prior to living in Atlanta, Marlo was breaking the law all over Florida, the results of which garnered her a whopping SEVEN arrests! Can’t say the girl just sat around!
“She was dating a drug dealer back in 95, initials WM,” the source explains. “They were living together, had an argument and she tried to have him arrested for battery. He moves out and moves in with another girl. Marlo comes back into the picture. Goes over to his house and attacks WM. He tries to have her arrested for battery.”
The source continues, “A few days after the altercation and trying to file charges on her, he gets investigated for various drug charges (he has prior convictions of selling drugs). Within the month he goes down- charged to the hilt.”
“Probably because of previous plea deals and probation he got slammed.” Marlo’s supposed ex-boyfriend is still incarcerated! After unceremoniously ending her relationship Marlo moved her money to Atlanta where she paid cash for her luxury townhome, which was shown in an episode from two weeks ago. If you recall Marlo had quite the extensive security system set up and if any of the above allegations are true, it would make sense why!
According to StraightFromTheA, a “well-informed source” told the her about the deal Marlo negotiated to purchase her home. Tax records show that the home was paid for in cash and Marlo owns it outright! Not too shabby.
Moving right along to that other accusation about Sheree’s activities at the return merchandise counter at Neiman Marcus, it seems she’s not the only one! As several readers pointed out, Marlo had a tag hanging off the back of her caftan during last week’s breakfast scene! Photos below!
StraightFromTheA got the scoop from one of her sources, who claims Marlo likes to visit the return counter as well! Perhaps she and Sheree can start going together. The insider also alleges that Marlo’s extensive collection of Louis Vuitton luggage was also on “loan” and she was seen storing all the tags “neatly” in an envelope, meaning she purchased them expressly for the trip. When Marlo was asked why she was keeping the tags, she told cast mates she likes to “catalog” her items by designer and year! Le sigh.
Moving right along, NeNe Leakes is apparently highly incensed at Sheree’s behavior towards her new friend. Taking to Twitter, NeNe decided to remind fans of what Sheree looked like beforeBob Whitfield came into the picture and supplied her with a new nose, as he purports. NeNe posted a “before” photo of Sheree and let’s just say she’s taken things down a notch.
Now I think Sheree looked fine before and she looks fine now, but there is most definitely a difference in her appearance! “Sheree’s old nose RT!!! <I remember,” NeNe ReTweeted. The photo is below.
NeNe is still working on Glee. as she made several Tweets about reprising her role and apparently she will also be branching out into the talk show market. NeNe Tweeted, “Great news: I’ve been asked 2 co-hosting on The Talk, next Wednesday & Thursday! This should b fun! Tune n,” she revealed.
And in other NeNe Leakes Takes Twitter activities, the star Tweeted about filming last night. “Just kicked @kingdomlos out my house! We finally finished shooting or did we LOL.” Kingdomlos is a the Twitter account for Carlos King – a RHOA producer! So what was NeNe shooting for Housewives?
Check out this TwitPic, below, and take a good look at what Ms. Leakes is wearing and see if its the shirt from her interview segments. It looks similar!

UPDATE – One of our readers @whatwomenwant pointed out to us that the photo Nene retweeted of Sheree is photoshopped. The original image is below!
Those “ladies” of the Real Housewives of Atlanta… they know how to hurl insults, they know how to one-up one another, and — most importantly — as seen on Sunday night’s episode, they certainly know how to pack!
Oh Marlo. Marlo, Marlo, Marlo. Seriously? I am still cringing about the very mature and level discussion b!tchfest cat fight between Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton, where Marlo uttered those truly sickening words. Don’t make me repeat them. I know, I know… it’s my job. Marlo, who seems to fancy herself the Emily Post of salt and pepper protocol and homophobic slurs, contends she was caught up in the heat of the moment when she yelled at Sheree, “Well anyway, that’s why you don’t have a man. Go and hang with them f*****s with your ugly a$$.” Yup, still cringing! Being hateful is never okay.
Marlo, as it seems, wasn’t intending to be ugly and offensive. It just sort of happened, as these things often do. #notokay Of course, as if on cue, Marlo took to her official website to issue a heartfelt (?? eh?) damage control apology. Her post is extremely articulate and it seems genuine, but I have a hard time condoning her P.R. statement, regardless of sincerity. Expressing her remorse as well as her desire to maintain a strong and positive relationship with the gay community, Marlo published the following open letter on her site:
It is with great disappointment in myself and sincere regret that I would like to issue to my friends, my most ardent supporters, and my followers, this statement:
I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur. When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole.
My first action, after the incident was to contact my closest friend and assistant of 8 years and to confess what I had done, to express my sadness and regret, and to ask him for his forgiveness. I was devastated at the thought of having hurt or embarrassed him as well as any member of the gay community and relish this opportunity to publicly apologize. My friends have embraced me, supported me, withheld judgment of me and have meant a lot to me over the years. I would never abuse their kindness and friendship and would never want to hurt them or demean them in any way.
I applaud and admire this community for their triumph over a sometimes harsh, mean spirited society that discriminates and even violently attacks those who are different. These are obstacles that I relate to and that I have been inspired by them to overcome. I celebrate this community and am saddened by any indication otherwise, that my actions may have caused.
I look forward to continuing to build my strong relationship with you, my followers and supporters, and those of you who do not yet know me and my heart. I look forward to work to regain your trust, respect and your love which has so empowered me over the years. I also thank you for allowing me to address you personally and to let you know how deeply sorry I am.
Obviously, just as viewers were appalled by Marlo’s statement, her Atlanta co-stars are also speaking out about how offended they were by her use of that nasty word. Sheree and Marlo’s screaming match (honestly, it kind of sucks for Marlo, as besides that horrendous statement I barely understood a word the women were screeching) garnered some serious and deserved backlash. Both Sheree and Kim Zolciak took to Twitter, the cyber-place where adults maturely resolve issues, to voice their disdain. Wait, did I just confuse Twitter with a reunion episode?
After the episode aired, Shereetweeted, “Using the “f” word is never acceptable……period!” Amen! And not one to be out-tweeted at her own game (of Twittering, duh), Kim also added her opinion on the situation that she was likely thankful for avoiding. Kim retweeted Sheree’s sentiment, adding, “Its disgusting!!”
Moving away from the episode’s screaming match, but not straying far enough that it doesn’t involve Twitter and Marlo, Nene Leakes also took to the mean webtastic streets to express her contempt for some cast mates who may have recently changed their tune about Ms. Hampton. In fact, Nene wasn’t able to voice her opinion in 180 characters or less, so she went on what can only be described as a Twitter tirade to get her point across. Well played.
The Neenster not only rudely mentioned Sheree’s nose job, she also enlightened her followers as to her co-stars original thoughts on Marlo. On Sunday, Nene began, “The Smalls loved Marlo when they thought they could turn her against me! Now that were friends, they don’t like her 4 no real reason.”
“Phaedra [Parks] & Sheree wanted Marlo on the show! They pushed production 4 her. Once we met & started talkin, they turned on her. They wanted Marlo on the show because they thought we would get n2 it about Charles but I never dated him,” Nene maintained. Oh the drama!
Continuing on Monday morning, Nenerevealed, “Maja was suppose 2 b the new housewife but Sheree & Phaedra didn’t want her on the show. They wanted Marlo 4 obvious reasons! Back fired.” And who is this Maja character? Well, according to the Tamara Tattles site, she is Maja Torrence who leases high-end condos and sometimes models. Sounds boring compared to the dramz Ms. Marlo is bringing to the season!
Keeping with the common theme of the Twitterverse, Andy Cohen recently tweeted a picture of some blinding bling. Kim and footballer hubby Kroy Biermann were Sunday night’s guests in the WWHL clubhouse and fans wanted to see the major wedding rings sported by the two. Holy diamonds! Those Atlanta Falcons must really be making the money! Rise up! A picture of their rings is below. Oh twitter, always a wealth of useful information!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MARLO’S APOLOGY? ANY TRUTH TO NENE’S RANT THAT PHAEDRA AND SHEREE ORIGINALLY WANTED MARLO ON THE SHOW? COMMENTS ON KIM’S BLING?
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta left NeNe Leakes and myself completely speechless. I dare say that was the oddest, craziest and most bizarre fight in Housewives history! Poor South Africa didn’t deserve this. Also, for self-proclaimed etiquette expert Marlo it’s a long way to the top if you want to be a socialite!
Arriving in South Africa the ladies brought the wild to the safari. Chalk it up to jet lag if you will. Lord the one liners in this episode are PRICELESS! After some super annoying Blair Witch Project footage of the women flying coach with no make up, they land in the airport, where much drama with the luggage ensues.
Apparently no one with the title “Housewives of Atlanta” can go on a ten-day trip with less than ten bags, so everyone is pushing these ENORMOUS luggage carts around the airport. Louis Vuitton is probably issuing a cease and desist letter right about now – either that or filing a defamation of character suit after this episode.

Marlo is receiving some backlash for dropping the F-word during an explosive argument with costar Sheree Whitfield during their trip to South Africa.
In a preview clip released by Bravo, the drama ensues after Sheree invites her fellow smalls Phaedra Parksand Kandi Burruss to an event. Sheree then extends an invitation to Cynthia Bailey, leaving Nene and Marlo without an invite. Upon discovering she wasn’t invited, Marlo throws away her kill them with kindness shtick, going front 0 to 10 as she decides to confront Sheree.
During their argument, Marlo states: “That’s why you don’t have a man… Go and hang with them f****ts with your ugly ass.” Wow.
At one point during the drama, even Nene is seen trying to calm Marlo down. Marlo continued, bragging to Sheree that her “Aston [Martin] was paid for in cash.” Sheree awesome response? “Yeah, by an 80 year old man!” Ouch! But Sheree might want to watch it because Marlo will cut yadoesn’t play nice!
The video clip of the drama is below. Marlo will definitely have some explaining to do once the episode airs.
In other RHOA news, Nene Leakes is defending herself after some fans wondered why she took it upon herself to invite Marlo to Bravo’s Phaedra’s African trip. If you recall, Phaedra was the one who planned the trip and extended an invite to The Nene. Nene declined the invite only to have a change of heart after Marlo agreed to accompany her.
Well, according to The Nene, Phaedra wasn’t the one who invited her on the trip! Err is she watching the same show we are? Nene tweeted: “4 the record: Phaedra didn’t invite me 2 Africa! Cynthia did so she was the only 1 I needed 2 inform & I did”
Nene, who is rumored to be in talks for her own Bravo spinoff, also made it clear there is no love lost between her and the costars. “Hunni they luv 2 hate! They don’t talk 2 me & I don’t talk 2 them & I luv it! Marlo & Cynthia r my girls,” tweeted Nene, adding, “I can’t wait 2 say good-bye! I don’t like these chicks @ all.”
Oh that Nene. Always the victim.

With the February 20 premiere of the 4th season of Basketball Wives just weeks away, here’s to hoping VH1 is still filming as the drama rages on for the show’s stars!
As it’s been widely reported, former BFFs Evelyn Lozada andJennifer Williamsare currently on the outs! It appears poor Jen might be out of the “circle” for good after Evelyn fired off a number of nasty tweets to her former bestie.
First, Evelyn tweeted: “So @iamjennifer thinks I’m MADD that’s she’s hanging out with @NeNeLeakes ??? Bitch pls! Interview coming soon…. #ItsOnContacts.” Evelyn then accused Jen of “running her mouth” to the press to remain relevant and accused her of being “insecure.” Yikes. Below are more of her tweets -
Yes, Evelyn’s fiance Chad Ochocinco had to step in and be the voice of reason. Not sure what this says about this union when ‘Ochocinco’ is the level headed one in the relationship!
As for Jen’s response, she pretty much stuck to retweeting some comments by her followers. Below is a screen shot -
If you recall, TMZ broke the news days ago that the producers of the show were putting together a very lucrative offer for her to join the cast. Well it seems Vanessa, who is said to have received $75 million in her recent divorce from Kobe Bryant, realized she has nothing to gain by aspiring to be the next Shaunie O’Neal!
According to the report by The Insider, a source with knowledge of the situation said, “No disrespect to the other ladies but ‘Basketball Wives’ just isn’t Vanessa’s style.”

In a new interview with Sister2Sister, Jennifer talks the status of her relationship with Evelyn and what she believes is the real reason things fell apart in their friendship. Hint, hint — she goes “bloop!”
“Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends,” Jennifer explains, alluding to Evelyn’s jealousy over her new-found friendships.
“NeNe is such a good person. I don’t think you really find a lot of people in the same business that you bond with because I feel like everyone is so competitive and everybody is so worried about the next person doing more than them, and it’s not like that with her at all,” Jen adds.
“She’s always trying to encourage me. She’s just always trying to uplift me, and I need people like that around me. I love that about her. There’s no jealousy. There’s no competition. We try to complement each other,” Jennifer shares. Wait… is she talking about the same NeNe we see on Real Housewives of Atlanta every week? That NeNe, queen of haterville? That NeNe?
“I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger,” Jen reveals of Evelyn’s feelings. “Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous. I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with. I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy.”
“To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad [Ochocinco]. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.” So wow, that sounds pretty petty. I am sure we’ll get more information on the root of their friendship demise this season. At least I hope we do!
Evelyn, who is really not in a keeping her clothes on kinda mood lately, recently posed for Maxim. In the spread Evelyn is sporting various teeny-tiny lingerie ensembles. Just in case Chad has a wandering eye like his on-again, off-again fiancé sometimes suspects, these photos should remind him of what he has to lose!
“I was so thrilled and honored to shoot with Maxim magazine. This was one of the most professional and best shoots I’ve ever had and it was truly exhilarating!,” Evelyn said of her nearly-nude photo experience. You can check out Evelyn’s Maxim spread below!
Finally, to prepare us for the upcoming season and get us really, really excited, Tami Roman is dropping little hints on Twitter. “Season 4 BBW so many twists and turns! You guys aren’t going to believe what “TRUTHS” come to light. EPIC!,” she teases. She also reveals that she and Royce Reed had a fight, spilling, “Well Me & Royce fight, she kicks me in the shin LOL.” Yeah, you can put me in the category of people who cannot wait to see that showdown!
Basketball Wives Season 4 premiers February 20th (8/9c) on Vh1.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim got ready for Kroy to leave for training camp and the rest of the ladies planned their trip to South Africa! NeNe decided to really stir up the drama by sneak inviting Marlo, and telling nary a soul, but Cynthia. And, oh my, were the ladies surprised, but not thrilled when Marlo joined them at the departure gate!
Things begin at Marlo‘s house, and ok, call me crazy, but I love the decor and the color scheme. NeNe is impressed that Marlo read Kim and Kandi the riot act at Cynthia‘s agency opening and definitely didn’t back down. On the tour, NeNe discovers Marlo has a full security system installed in her house, which she can monitor from her bedroom! Who is she, Drita D’avanzio? Is she mistressed to the mob in secret?
