Nene Leakes

I will never forgive Kim Zolciak from depriving us of her presence during the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s trip to Africa, where they pledged to be nice after visiting an orphanage, and then followed that up with endless arguments about nothing.

It would have been truly hilarious to see Kim in that environment, away from her suburban bubble of Bentleys, fat-sucking lasers, and chain restaurants. But, alas, Kim passed on the trip, and a few people have accused the sole white lady on the cast of being racist and not wanting to go to Africa.

On her recent Bravo blog, former musical partner Kandi Burruss does not back down, making it clear she still believes Kim would NOT have wanted to visit the orphanage:

“First off, I do not think Kim would have gone to Africa, even if she hadn’t just had the baby, and I don’t see her spending time at an orphanage, especially not the one we went to in Africa.As for me saying I don’t see her at the orphanage, no I don’t. She may disagree, but that’s my opinion. I just don’t see her being the type to be there. Not that Kim wouldn’t help. I think she would help with giving donations to get them what they need, but I don’t see her doing physical help.”

Kandi also thinks it was simply a matter of Kim wanting to avoid being around Nene Leakes. That’s certainly understandable since the women’s feud has gotten rather ugly on several occasions.

“Kim has been avoiding NeNe for over a year. It would have taken a million dollars to get her to come on a trip where she was stuck for a whole week in close proximity to NeNe. On top of that she hates long flights.”

The supremely lazy Kim might be type to send a check and return to the hotel for a much-needed spa day, but she begs to differ in her Bravo blog, and says she doesn’t mind dirt, or holding children of any race:

Cynthia and Kandi seemed to think I wouldn’t attend the Africa trip because NeNe would stop me and I wouldn’t want to hold African children. Although Cynthia made the initial comment, Kandi co-signed, so she’s just as guilty in my eyes. You are supposed to be my friend, why are you agreeing with a hater? If Kandi believes I wouldn’t go to an African orphanage, then she doesn’t truly know me. I love children and always have. I love to take care of people, which is why I went to nursing school.

Kandi says I am germaphobic, and yes, I like my house clean, and no, I didn’t want people around KJ his first few months, etc. But let’s be honest, as a nurse I have wiped many asses in my time, suctioned people, and held a basin when they were vomiting, so forgive me for being educated on all the germs that are out there, but there is nothing that a little hand washing can’t fix. “Germs” have never prevented me from holding a sick child, an adult’s hand, or walking into a less that sanitary place. End of story.”

Fans may recall the time that Kim said she would “shovel shit” for her daughters if she ever lost her ATM, otherwise known as Big Poppa, so she may be on to something. Kim also addresses Nene’s comments that she is too superficial to take on such a charitable task:

“NeNe mentioned that I am materialistic and superficial, which I found funny coming from someone who says she is “very rich.” I love my Louis Vuitton, I love my YSL, and I will STILL die in Dior, but never have I boasted and made displays of my items in hotel rooms. I am very blessed and grateful to have what I have. I never take my things for granted, or the things I’ve been granted will get taken away.”

We have to give a point to the Zolciak for this. None of the Atlanta cast members have ever been able to go very long without mentioning clothing labels or money, with perhaps the exception of Kandi, who has always been a bit more grounded. But none of these ladies have ever shown up ANYWHERE in just a pair of worn Old Navy yoga pants and a Target tank top – know what I mean? Speaking of label-whores, Kandi also mentions Marlo in her blog post, and her discomfort at her constant braying of her expensive wardrobe (earned with a paycheck that came straight from the heavens if we are to believe her):

“I think for the most part Marlo is a nice person, and yes, I think she’s fashionable, but I just don’t like being around people who constantly boast and brag about what they have. At a certain point people will only notice you for what they can see on the surface, if that’s all you seem to offer. I think Marlo has an incredible closet full of beautiful clothes and shoes, but the constant talk about them I can do without.”

Back to the topic of the Wigged One, Kim, the final question is, is she in fact racist? Kim says she isn’t and that if she was, she would not be on this show:

In my eyes children in need are children in need. I have said this before, and I will say it till I die, I DON’T SEE COLOR, not with women, men, children, or adults. What they said was ignorant and rude. I do not need to explain that I am not a racist, because the people who know me know my heart.

I embrace all races, and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be a cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Need I say more?

My feelings are that Kim is completely checked out of this show, and didn’t see any personal benefit to going on the Africa trip. She’s consistently missed group events throughout the seasons, and the one housewife vacation she went on last season was to visit one of her boyfriends. With Kim, sticking to the surface answer is probably the closest to the truth.

TELL US: WHY DO YOU THINK KIM SKIPPED OUT ON THE TRIP TO AFRICA? DO YOU THINK SHE IS TOO SELFISH TO HAVE GONE TO THE ORPHANAGE? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE OTHER CAST MATE’S COMMENTS ABOUT HER?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies promised and swore to turn over a new leaf after their moving experience in the South African orphanage, but alas their epiphany was brief and insincere.

After seeing the heartbreaking poverty of the children of the orphanage, the ladies sit down to dinner at their five-star resort to reflect on how privileged their lives are. They have “beautiful homes, beautiful fashions, a lotta labels,” Phaedra points out. Phaedra’s speech about appreciation was tailor made for Marlo, I see. Bespoke, if you will. Too bad Marlo was focusing on something being wrong with her plate instead of contemplating the day. Everyone promises to put future petty squabbles into perspective and approach situations in a more adult manner. Kandi is the first to speak up with a a ‘yeah right!’

There was a lot going on this weekend with the Real Housewives of Atlanta…especially in the Twitterverse! Kim Zolciak and former assistant Sweetie Hughes are speaking out about a write-up insinuating that Sweetie thinks Kim’s new husband Kroy Biermann is a racist.

After an interview Sweetie gave to blogger ATLien about her termination as Kim’s lackey right-hand-woman created some hullabaloo about Kroy’s potential prejudices, the ladies started tweeting up a storm to discredit the story.

As you recall, ATLien wrote, “I’ve heard rumors that Kim’s new husband, Falcons player Kroy Biermann doesn’t ‘prefer’ African-Americans chilling around the house, and since Sweetie is clearly one of those, it’s been inferred that he may be the cause of her sudden job loss.”

Not one to take this gossip lightly, Kim took to the mean streets of her Twitterhood to set the record straight. On Friday, she tweeted, “Under no circumstances did @sweetieHughes imply @biermann71 was racist nor discriminates against african americans when u do an inter be legit! Its disgusting!”

Sweetie was quick to respond to her twitter pal and former boss, saying, “@Kimzolciak ignore the BS and Have a wonderfull day sweetie:)” which was later followed with, “Omg America get a life!!!!!”

It appears the world may never know the back story behind Kim and Sweetie’s parting of ways. Of course, we can always read between the tweets…and pray the situation is highlighted on the upcoming Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding!

In other RHOA news, Phaedra Parks spoke with Naughty But Nice Rob with the Huffingtonpost, defending former client Bobby Brown. Bobby has been receiving backlash in the media regarding the tragic death of his ex-wife, singer Whitney Houston. While many have blamed Bobby for enabling his wife’s addictions while others have criticized his support of the pair’s 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Christina.

Phaedra, who has often talked on the show about representing Bobby as his attorney, tells the site, “What we have to remember is that they both were adults and as adults we make choices. They are adults. Whitney took responsibility for what happened with her life. She was wonderful, an icon. I’m happy to have worked with both of them.”

When asked about Bobby’s delay in rushing to his distraught daughter’s side in L.A., Phaedra again dismisses the public’s criticism. She states, “In defense of Bobby, when this happened, he was on stage.”

Phaedra continues, explaining, “He doesn’t have a private jet. He got there as soon as he could. He is a wonderful father. I know he will be there for all his children. I’m worried for any child that looses a parent at a young age — that point in your life is when you need your mother. At 18 years old, you are beginning your transformation to be a women.”

Our thoughts continue to be with Whitney’s family and friends.

And finally, going back to where we started (Twitter is always full-circle!), Kandi Burruss and 9-year-old daughter Riley will be moving from their old home in Fayetteville, Georgia and a new McMansion pictured below!

Kandi tweeted the below picture with the news, “Just got a new house!!!!!! So much work to be done….”

Wow! That is quite an upgrade, but well-deserved in light of Kandi’s success both on the show and with her other ventures. Her late-night radio show, Kandi Koated Knights, continues to gain popularity, while her line of adult toys is about to launch. Combine all of this with her upcoming Bravo spin-off Kandi Factory, and I’d say Kandi is earning quite enough to make that jump. Congratulations!

Don’t forget about tonight’s episode, airing at 9PM ET. “No Bones About It” continues with the women’s tour of South Africa. Everyone dines in luxury, discussing their time at the orphanage and how silly their petty fights seem in light of what they’ve seen. Phaedra cites the women’s bounty of good things, with Nene agreeing that they are all certainly blessed. Marlo just needs the waiter because the her lunch is undercooked. Phaedra takes it upon herself to impart culture on her travel companions, and the ladies head to a museum. They learn that in certain villages, if a man gets his father or brother to go fetch a lady who has caught his eye, she must become his bride. Kandi isn’t keen on that proposal.

They also meet a help artist herbalist who lets them smell the ancestors (they smell a bit like “pee” according to the ever honest Neenster), and he throws some bones to tell the women’s fortunes. For a mortician, Phaedra isn’t on board with the bone throwing. Sheree is not digging on his prediction that she will never marry again because she’s too old. However, the medicine man is adamant. He also informs Nene that while Greg is a very good man, if she isn’t happy, she shouldn’t stay. Later, Marlo gets sick.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM AND SWEETIE’S TWEETS? ARE THEY JUST TRYING TO SAVE FACE? THOUGHTS ON PHAEDRA’S BOBBY BROWN INTERVIEW AND KANDI’S NEW HOME?

Sweetie Hughes is tired of the speculation about why she no longer works for Kim Zolciak. The most infamous assistant to ever grace the screens on reality TV is speaking out about what really went on and setting the record straight on the rumors that she stole from Kim.

Speaking to StraightfromtheA, Sweetie reveals that the first time she heard the alleged rumor that she had stolen from Kim was on twitter, and she was shocked. Sweetie reveals that it’s absolutely absurd, and that for years she handled Kim’s money. “That shit is crazy! Do you know how much money I handled for Kim. As her assistant I had bank account access and all that… something that other assistants never had the opportunity to get that far… so as far as loyalty it’s been very high.”

“I think someone just made it up and I realize that out of every assistant she’s ever had, I’m the one they always talk about… they always try to keep my name out there, which is cool, it ain’t hurting me.”

Kim confirmed in a tweet that Sweetie definitely did not steal from her and rumors that she did are completely false. “@SweetieHughes would never steal from me you sick bloggers get a life,” Kim wrote.

Sweetie explains that Kim has been using employing her for years and she has no idea why she even became her assistant in the first place.”To be honest, I really don’t even know… I guess it was just spur of the moment. I just happened to know her so well it just worked out,” Sweetie shares.

“She had so many different assistants it just worked out. I worked for her way before she was famous. I did the same thing I was doing now back then… at the age of 15. The only thing I couldn’t do back then was drive…. coffee… scheduled appointments… I did it all.” I think calling Kim “famous” is a stretch…

When asked why she was fired, Sweetie was perplexed, openly admitting she doesn’t really know, but claims that she initially tried to quit! “I actually quit in the beginning and was like.. you know… I have school and stuff… but agreed to work until she found another assistant,” she explains. “And it so happens I just continued to work… but we went back and forth basically and it just went on and on.”

“Did she call me and while I was on my way to work to say not to come in to work or ‘its not gonna work out’? Yeah she did but I been asking for that about a year ago,” Sweetie reveals! As for what prompted the initial split, Sweetie blames the camera crews, but she feels they parted amicably. “I guess it’s a lot of stress, a lot of filming going on… but it’s not like it was on a really bad note.” Sweetie and Kim definitely remain friendly if twitter is any sort of reliable source.

Sweetie isn’t interested in giving away too many details about the break-up, she just wants to clear her good name. “I don’t want to bash nobody. The one thing I have is loyalty. A lot of people don’t have that and that’s the one thing I have.”

When asked about the rumor that Kroy Biermann was uncomfortable having African Americans in his home and that prompted Kim to let her go, Sweetie was pretty nebulous in her answer, simply stating that Kroy is “cool”

“Yeah… he’s cool. He cool. That’s all I’ve got to say. I prefer not to… umm… We’re just better off cool,” Sweetie muses. Interestingly she adds, “There’s only so much someone can take.”

My two cents: I had suspected Sweetie was growing tired of Kim’s divatude and her increasing demands. Regardless of how inappropriate NeNe’s behavior was on last year’s Miami bus trip, I think there was a kernel of truth to what she said, and Sweetie knew it on some level. I personally think Kroy either didn’t want Sweetie around so much or he felt like her work wasn’t up to standard, and that played a role in Sweetie’s termination. I believe the larger role was played by Bravo in order to drum up more of a storyline for Kim’s new spin-off and RHOA, Bravo may have encouraged Kim to make that a focal point. Or really, maybe they just both grew tired of each other!

And in other Real Housewives of Atlanta news, Cynthia Bailey is once again telling us just how much she loves Nene Leakes!

On last week’s South African adventure, many wondered if Cynthia would be iced out of NeNe’s bestie circle and supplanted by Marlo Hampton, who was willing to buy NeNe’s love and access to celebrity with Gucci handbags. NeNe wisely did not take the bait – maybe cause the purse was ugly. Nonetheless, Cynthia seemed mighty left out as the other Talls played Barbie Dream House, meanwhile, she sat alone and self-styled at the breakfast table, while the Smalls speculated that she had been usurped.

Cynthia wants to make it clear that’s not the case, and the two are still very much in love, despite what the show might lead us to believe. “NeNe’s always been very supportive and very loving. I have no control over editing and what they choose to show on the show, but please believe me, NeNe supports 100 percent,” Cynthia tells Sister2Sister.

“I’ve definitely gone to her for a lot of guidance. She’s been in this game a lot longer than I have, and I think she’s smart, and she’s an incredible businesswoman,” Cynthia explains of why she values their friendship.

Cynthia also reveals that the person NeNe is still closest to, is possibly soon-to-be-ex-husband, Gregg Leakes and a reconciliation isn’t totally out of the question for the two! “Anytime NeNe really wants to talk to somebody she really considers a true friend, she’s going to call Gregg first, and I don’t think that’s gonna change if they move on or not.” NeNe has previously admitted in an interview that things aren’t over with Gregg, even though she has been hanging out with Olives, aka John Kolaj.

As for the haters spewing hate, Cynthia just ignores them and she doesn’t take them personally – because that’s Atlanta for you! Cynthia says she definitely treats the show as a “job” and that she uses it for “the amazing platform that it is.”

THOUGHTS ON SWEETIE’S COMMENTS ABOUT KIM? WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM? ARE CYNTHIA AND NENE TRUE FRIENDS? WILL NENE AND GREGG GET BACK TOGETHER?

Last night on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, it was a totally Kim-free episode as the other ladies toured the bush of South Africa. They laughed, they danced, they sang, they did charity work – I know, shockingly that all actually happened! They also made snide comments and embarrassed themselves, but hey it’s better than a screaming match!

Things began at the tale end of the epic showdown between two ladies desperate to prove each one is the lesser gold digging, wannabe living off a sugar daddy’s dime. It is much to everyone’s surprise, including Kandi‘s that NeNe intervenes and basically pries these two crazy ladies apart. As NeNe herds Marlo up the stairs, still clutching her omnipresent mimosa, she scolds Sheree on remaining calm and letting it go.

Afterwards everyone shakes it off and proceeds on to their respective dinner engagements. Well, almost everyone NeNe and Cynthia looked like they both wanted to catch the first bus out of there! Sheree arrives at her friend Kevin’s dinner party where he is excited to see the ladies and has planned a lot of exceptional entertainment for the evening. I can see why it would be impractical for Sheree to invite three more people last minute but she should have approached it a different way. Seriously, couldn’t a Bravo producer make copies of Marlo‘s etiquette book and pass it around to the entire traveling group? At Kevin’s the ladies are treated to some amazing fire dancing, flirting with danger indeed. That is pretty much the theme of this entire trip!

Oh Atlanta… I am thankful to you for many reasons. You’ve got peaches. You’ve got the Falcons (Rise up! I know nothing about NFL teams except for their tag lines), you’ve got the best shopping for those of us in the South who live off I-85 (thank you Phipps Plaza!) who think fine apparel comes from Target (a lot of it does. IT DOES). And you’ve got the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Bless you fair Georgian city. Let’s get right to the newest RHOA gossip, shall we?

Just because she’s starring on Bravo’s sure to be latest hit Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding with her new husband Kroy Biermann doesn’t mean that Kim Zolciak has forgotten her RHOA roots. After being the palest wig wearer for four seasons, many speculated she would be taking the Bethenny Frankel route and not returning to the show that made her a star household name.

Fear not, dear readers. Kim’s twitterverse (of course, where else?) has been abuzz with rumors that the fair Kim (no pun intended…okay, pun totally intended which is why I italicized) would not be returning to Bravo’s Atlanta franchise for season 5. On Friday, Kim pacified many a worried viewer, tweeting, “I’ll be back don’t believe rumors!!”

In fact, when many Kim followers started to voice their concern that the voluminous wig wearer was placating her masses, her twitters tweeters tweet peeps fans were relieved when Kim reiterated, “I’ll be back!!! Xxx”

Even though there is no official word from Bravo as to the season five cast, I, for one, can rest assured that if Kim’s wig doesn’t grace my screen next season, I can hopefully watch a twitter inspired video network of her future life. #trademarkedandregisteredsaidtwittervideofeedsobackoffpeoplewhowanttobeonsharktank :)

In other, and equally important RHOA news, Phaedra Parks is speaking out on eurweb.com about her place on the show and her new career as a funeral director.

As we all know, Phaedra isn’t just a reality star, she’s a savvy business woman and attorney. And due to that, she’s hoping that the show serves as an advertisement for her new other worldly business ventures. It appears that she was picked up for the show just in time to realize her true dream.

Phaedra tells the site, “It wasn’t that I had so much of a desire to be on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. It came at a great time. I was on bed rest. I was pregnant and it was a good opportunity for me to really expand my brand because I had produced TV shows.”

She continues, “I am an entertainment attorney, but I had never been in front of the screen so I understood all the workings of reality except for being a true cast mate. So it gave me an opportunity to say ‘Hey, I have diversified and I can do every part of TV now.’ I know the legal side. I know the technical side and I know the artist side of it.’”

While it’s easy for viewers to see that being a part of the show was a big jump start for Phaedra, she is quick to admit that viewers are the the ones who make the call as to who is popular, who is hated, who needs to stay, and who needs to go. Regardless, Phaedra is very happy with the part she’s played in the franchise and shares what she believes to be the most important aspect of her time with Bravo.

Phaedra asserts, “I think as black people, we have to stop saying this show represents our whole race. We have to vote with our viewership and say ‘On the show we want to see professionals. We want to see mothers. We want to see whatever it is that you actually want to see…[u]nfortunately, as viewers we have sort of bought into the stereotypes that the mass media has shown us for years and we glorify it. One of our biggest characters on there is probably very stereotypical of what we want to admonish as a people, but people love to say ‘Oh we love to see her cut up because that’s what we’re tuning in to see.’”

Amen, Phaedra. I have always thought she brought the comic relief (pickle photo shoots and baby poop, anyone?), but I love to hear her intelligent side give the general opinion of the show. She is, of course, totally correct… people want drama. Sadly, we wouldn’t be tuning in in droves to see the women succeeding in their professional lives. We just like to see Nene Leakes and Kim go at it. #SadForUs

“It’s unfortunate, but I think we have been programmed to want to see drama,” Phaedra continues. “We want to see discord. And when you see people getting along, instead of us actually praising ‘Oh wow, they’re getting along. There’s teamwork. There’s camaraderie. There’s things that’s positive about us as black women,’ people will say ‘Oh, that’s boring. That’s so boring. We don’t want to see that.’ I think we sort of went in a direction where we subscribe to drama and we appreciate that more than sensible behavior.”

In the interview, Phaedra veers away from the show and discusses her dream to own and operate a funeral home. I have to say that for once I don’t think this is a story line Bravo was smart enough to think up on its own, let alone encourage. No offense Andy Cohen, but I do think this has been the long time brainchild of Phaedra herself.

The star speaks candidly about her passion for owning her own mortuary. Phaedra states, “I developed a big desire to be in the funeral home business about five or six years ago. I had a lot of friends that passed away and I was the person that would plan their homegoing services, so that’s how the interest started.” She reveals, “The funeral home I’m going open will be fabulous and the services will be a celebration of life. It will be a family business. My husband, my mother, and my brother will be involved. It’s going to be a great legacy we can leave for our son.”

Bless you, Phaedra. I wish you had been around when I had to plan the funerals of family members. No, I am not Phaedra’s biggest fan, but I do have to applaud what seems like a sincere effort to follow her passion. Bottom line, I do think that if this was the last season we saw of RHOA, ten years from now Phaedra would be embalming our loved ones. And that’s solid on her part.

Finally, turning away from the macabre, I have new cast members to report on…or not report on, as the case may be. Thankfully the Atlanta Journal Constitution is relaying that CNN magnate Ted Turner (the same man who is not, I repeat happily is NOT, Marlo Hampton’s rich older sugar daddy)’s daughter Laura Turner Seydel has been approached by Bravo to join the fifth season.

While she made an appearance on a recent episode to tout her charity, Laura is however way too busy not being uber-dramatic actually doing volunteer work to have her world filmed for the Bravo series.

The site reports that while she did enjoy her minutes in the limelight, she will be turning down Bravo’s offer. Her spokesperson Denise Elsbree claims, “[Laura] really enjoyed that. It was fun. She was able to promote Captain Planet. She works hard to get the message out about the group’s different initiatives.”

After graciously declining Bravo’s invitation, her spokesperson (how many times do I get to quote the actual spokesperson – not a ‘source’ or an ‘insider’ when referring to Bravo-lebrities? Answer: never) states, “[Laura] has a really complicated schedule. She’s on all sorts of boards of foundations and travels all the time. She’s flattered to be considered but there’s no way she could do it.” More respect for you, Mrs. Seydel, more respect.

If you have digested all of this wonderful RHOA info, then clearly you are ready for a preview of tonight’s episode which airs on Bravo at 9PM ET. It’s the third installment of the “ladies’” trip to South Africa and the drama is still high between Marlo and Sheree. When Nene is the voice of reason in screaming match, you know it’s bad! The smalls head to Sheree’s friend’s for dinner while the talls head to Nobu. There is a good deal of fire juggling and Sassafras. The smalls try to set up Kandi with a struggling actor and model, but she didn’t come all the way to Africa to find someone who is fakes it till they make it. With the talls, Cynthia is disappointed that she is with the group that doesn’t want to soak up any culture. Nene eats her sushi with a fork. Can’t wait! A preview clip is below.

Bryson Bryant

Bad news today for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes’ as her son Bryson Bryant is once again making headlines for all the wrong reasons!

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!

Below is the full blind item, via Bossip -

“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, aka Jill 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 before Bob 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!
