While Tony was fully prepared to end up in the middle of the pack for this season's eliminations, he says that after he started working with NeNe he believes they could go far. But it's going to take relying on NeNe's personality to get there!
"We know athletes have an advantage but I feel like personality takes you a long way," Tony explained. "As long as we can show NeNe’s personality in a positive way, we can have her connect with the audience at home.”
She begins her Bravo blog, "Hello everyone! Welcome back to another drama filled episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta! Let’s jump right on in! Peter has always maintained a friendly relationship with all the men that he has been introduced to through the ladies. He is cool with all of them. He calls them whenever he feels like it and is happy to answer the phone when they call him — Apollo, Gregg, Todd, Kordell, and of course Walter. The men have their own relationships, and I think it’s great that they all get along. It's seems pretty ridiculous to assume that the guys would stop being cool just because they are no longer in a relationship with one of the ladies or are having issues with them.
To promote Naomi's reality show 'The Face' (airing now on Oxygen), NeNe and Naomi filmed a funny bit in which Naomi taught NeNe how to runway walk. Hopefully that will come in handy for NeNe's appearance on Dancing With The Stars!
In exchange, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star teaches Naomi how to throw some good ol' fashioned Housewives shade. Bloop! A hilarious video of NeNe and Naomi: Together At Last (lets give them a friend name – how about Neomi), and a gif are below. Enjoy!
Kenya Moore has crowned herself the Shade Queen and we have to admit that she may have earned that title this season and via her no-holds-barred blogs. In her newest blog, theReal Housewives of Atlanta star once again doesn't hold back about this week's episode, calling out her co-stars.
Kenya blasts NeNe Leakes, dishes on Porsha Stewart's beard situation with Kordell Stewart and talks about the apology she is expecting from Apollo Nida. Here are some highlights from this week's shady-palooza. She dishes a special brand of bitchy for Phaedra Parks.
She titles her first section "THE MOOSE IS ON THE LOOSE". "What grown woman threatens her friend to discontinue being friends with them because they don’t like him or her? I felt bad for Marlo, because she was always a good friend of NeNe’s and her biggest supporter and she really hurt her feelings. And the way she cursed out Cynthia who simply tried talking to her about Marlo… I thought her stripper days were behind her, but she is really showing her ass. They are both better off without her."
It's the second installment of Manlow and Krayonce, and man, do I want this to be a spin-off, but in cartoon form! I don't want Marlo Hampton and Kenya Moore to get their own show per se, but how awesome would these two larger than life Real Housewives of Atlanta characters be when portrayed in Japanese anime?
You know who thinks that would be a horrible idea? NeNe Leakes. She is perturbed by the very shady and very thirsty duo. In the Neenster's mind, Kenya and Marlo are just bit players trying to steal a star's thunder. Oh, the dramatic antics of the Peach State! If you caught Sunday's episode of RHOA, you know exactly to what I'm referring!
Below are photos of the remaining season 18 stars – Amy Purdy, Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron Bure, Charlie White, Cody Simpson, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, James Maslow, Meryl Davis, & Sean Avery – with their pro partners.
Also, Lisa Vanderpump paved the way for Bravo housewives on the dance competition, and she has some sound advice for competitor NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She knows that it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to make it on the show, but Lisa promises NeNe that it's worth every minute!
By that I mean, is she an evil genius or straight-up crazy? Kenya has orchestrated shade so elaborate it's like a 7-layer taco dip with extra cheese. It's deep and flavorful and frankly scary in its articulate complexity (Kenya IS Top Chef!). And there is no nacho chip to be left unturned.
Kenya has so many targets it's difficult to know if there's a safe-zone, but good lord is it crafty and thrilling to watch. If she is working at this alone, then I bow down to her as the true maestro of all Housewives. And if she's just full-scale nutty then NeNeLeakes better contact the authorities!
