NeNe claims they never even knew each other to begin with and pretended to be friends for the show. But at the crux of their friendship split was Kenya Moore, whom NeNe feels Cynthia betrayed her with. Of course, NeNe claimed she has no intention of ever speaking to Cynthia again. But Cynthia isn’t ready to let go of the friendship just yet!
Claudia Jordan was spotted filming with Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey at the opening of Sports One in Charlotte, NC last week. “Bravo crew came out, Kenya, new girl Claudia, my wife, Kordell [Stewart]. We shot at the bar last night until 2 in the morning,” Peterrevealed. “The two new girls are extremely beautiful, so there was a lot of chemistry in the house.”
The other potential newbie is Demetria McKinney, a singer and philanthropist and serious fashion-lover of the Marlo-vein (meaning over-the-top glam and big labels). Claudia, a former Miss Rhode Island, also competed in the Miss USA pageant and presently is a DJ for DishNetwork’s Rickey Smiley Show, where coincidentally Porsha Stewart also works.
Last season things were rough for NeNe, who battled with Kenya Moore and lost her friendship to Cynthia Bailey. Still NeNe reveals that despite the negativity she’s returning to the show to use it for the amazing opportunities it presents. And she’s also giving an inside scoop on the inner workings of the show, the cast relationships, and whether or not Phaedra Parks will be back!
“Every single season, somehow people think I’m not coming back. Somehow, I’m the only one who people ask, ‘Is she coming back or not?’ But I think that people don’t understand it’s not really our choice like that,” NeNe explains. “When I signed on for season 1, I signed on for a number of seasons. We’re like actors, we sign for a number of seasons and they’re either going to pick you up at the end of the season or drop you, unless you finish out your contract. So I have obligations. It’s not like I can just walk away from something like it’s just that easy, it’s really not.”
Oh my… Real Housewives of Atlanta is turning into the new Real Housewives of New Jersey. Meaning what is happening behind-the-scenes is far more juicy than what’s happening on camera!
With Apollo Nida heading to prison, it seems he and Phaedra Parks are getting divorced. Rumors have cropped up that the couple is living apart and Apollo hasn’t been seen at their home in months. RHOA producers are filming Apollo until he relocates to the Big House, but he and Phaedra are barely interacting – in fact a previous report spotted them only coming together for their sons and having a terse conversation!
Now comes a new report that states Phaedra is refusing to film with Apollo – and even skipped a recent RHOA event to avoid him. This tea is piping hot and sweet like molasses so settle in! It’s been rumored that Phaedra is ‘taking a break’ from filming this season as she sorts out her affairs, but that’s not true – what Phaedra is actually breaking from is putting her marriage and drama with her soon-to-be-ex-husband on TV.
Earlier we showed you pictures from NeNe Leakes in Zumanity – the press preview of the show. Just a few days later was the official opening night and we somehow missed the photos! Better late than never, though!
Here is the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, looking like she’s having the time of her life (as the center of attention, duh) with the cast of the Vegas show. The one thing I noticed through each photo is that NeNe seems very much in her element and truly full of joy. Or she’s scared to death and hiding it really well. One of the two.
Maybe this gave NeNe the itch for Broadway? She’s rumored to be up for a role sometime soon. Could you see NeNe leaving reality TV and heading to the stage instead? Or would she try to juggle both?
Well, this may be good news for Wendy Williams. If NeNe lands the role, it could delay her rumored talk show. And who would not want to see NeNe play a fairy godmother? She could turn out advice like, “Close you legs to married men!”
In perhaps a move to promote her new HSN clothing line, NeNe posted a picture of a Birkin bag that she had customized with paint. Upon seeing the pic, Wendy went to Twitter and asked, “Hot Question: What do think about @NeNeLeakes defacing her Birkin bag?”
Well apparently, NeNe was not a fan of Wendy’s hot question.
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!
