Nene Leakes

Just when I hoped Patti Stanger was somewhat remorseful for her scathing and incredibly rude comments, she’s at it again!

The Millionaire Matchmaker has come out of hiding to pitch a new reality show and in the process insult some of her Bravo colleagues! According to the New York Post, the incredibly unlikable and bad for TV, Patti participated in a conference call with a “group of LA-based designers” she was soliciting for “Glamazons,” a new reality show Stanger is developing. No word yet if friend and fellow fame junkie Jill Zarin was included in that group!

During the course of the call, a source claims Patti excoriated real-life glamazon, Rachel Zoe, and accused her of being “near bankrupt” as a result of an “addiction” to vintage couture! Hey, I can relate! Even worse, she claimed Rachel was forced to sell her apartment and “do a reality show” because of her addiction! Whoa! Slanderous! Apparently Patti had no proof to back any of this up, but hey – irrelevant details! A rep for Rachel, of course, denied the assignations calling them “laughable.”

Patti then went after Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes! Using NeNe to serve as a warning to her budding reality minions, Patti demanded that they better refrain from becoming “divas” if they want to keep their jobs. She used the sweet-natured Housewife’s attitude to illustrate her point, snapping: “NeNe is about to be cut. With her diva attitude, you watch, she’s going to get cut.”

Patti also demanded people on her show better play nice or else! “You’re all going to pretend like you’re friends, and you’re going to go out every night or you’ll be fired — you’re all replaceable,” she allegedly commanded!

Well, of course now that this story is making headlines everyone is doing damage control! Speaking through her over-worked rep, Patti refuted the story as exaggerated. “Oh, come on. I have the utmost respect for Bravo and all my colleagues there,” she told the Post. “I was obviously misunderstood.”

As for Bravo they retaliated with the following statement: “Bravo does not produce shows with those kinds of stipulations and therefore would never be green-lit on our network. And there is zero truth to those comments about Rachel Zoe and NeNe Leakes.”

DO YOU BELIEVE PATTI MADE THOSE STATEMENTS? DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO HER COMMENTS? WOULD YOU WATCH HER NEW SHOW? HOW MANY DAYS UNTIL HER CONTRACT WITH BRAVO IS CANCELLED?

In a new interview, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey talks about how she ended up on Housewives, what reality stardom has been like and what to expect this season! Sadly, she doesn’t really give anything good away.

Eight months after moving to Atlanta for her relationship with then boyfriend, Peter Thomas, Cynthia learned that Bravo was casting for a new Housewife. “People I knew had mentioned I should be on the show, and I was eventually approached because my name kept coming up as a candidate. I took a meeting, which led to another meeting, which led to a phone call with Bravo and a screen test.”

Cynthia says watching herself on TV during her first season was “a little mortifying.” “There’s no book on how to be on a reality show,” she confesses. “You just have to go through it. Peter and I decided the best thing to do was to put it out there – to be real. On one hand, I’m glad we put it all out there. On the other hand, I feel like we gave too much.” Is she referring to the total financial implosion that happened days before the wedding her mother and sister tried to cancel moments before she walked down the aisle?

“I think people really related to our troubles last year with this economy. I got so many letters from viewers who were losing their jobs, losing their houses, losing their cars. They were glad to see that people on TV have problems, too. It was really real. I can’t fake that kind of pressure,” Cynthia explains of last season’s issues the couple faced after Peter was forced to close Uptown.

This season Cynthia promises that, although she remains friends with out of control out-spoken co-star NeNe Leakes, she is “more opinionated” and branching out to form friendships with other ladies. “Last season, NeNe was my friend on the show, but this season I integrated with more than just NeNe, and I’m much more vocal.” Uh-oh… that means trouble!

She also formed strong friendships on the ladies’ cast trip to Africa! “We took an amazing trip there, and it’s one of my favorite things we shot this season,” she expresses. “I felt like I really bonded with each of the girls individually on the trip. We were stuck together for ten days in a Third World country, and it brought us together.”

As for what else is happening in season four of RHOA, Cynthia reveals she will be working hard on the Bailey Agency School of Fashion and Peter opened a new lounge, Bar One.

“Our show offers something different; we’re organic,” she says of what makes RHOA Bravo’s most popular Housewives series. “It is what it is with us. We’re more real, and you’re going to get great moments and major train wrecks with us.”

In other RHOA news, as you all know Kim Zolciak is engaged! She is finally showing off the glamorous rock fiancé Kroy Biermann designed especially for her! While it’s not as big as her ring from Big Poppa, the 10k ring is nothing to laugh at. It’s gorgeous! Kim revealed her sparkler to the world via TwitPic just in time for her expected 11/11/11 nuptials! A photo of Kim’s ring is below.

Well, I can’t wait! Real Housewives of Atlanta premiers on Bravo, Sunday, November 6 (9/10c).

THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU PREDICT TROUBLE BETWEEN HER AND NENE THIS SEASON? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SEASON FOUR OF RHOA? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RING?

Is she or isn’t she?

A new report claims Marlo Hampton, who was supposed to be the new wife on the block for Real Housewives of Atlanta is actually not going to make the cut!

StraightFromTheA blog is reporting that, while Marlo was originally slated to join as the seventh housewife, she has now been relegated to the “side-kick” role ala Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

This is possibly verified by the fact that Marlo was not included in any of the official Bravo promotional pictures or write-ups for the new season. And Phaedra Parks stated in a recent interview: “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife.”

The reason Marlo got downgraded? Apparently not only did she lie about her affiliation with supposed fiancé Charles Grant, she also has a pretty shady and violent criminal past! (oh no – Danielle 2.0!). Also she was supposed to bring the catfights with NeNe Leakes, but instead the two formed a friendship! A Bravo no-no!

Marlo’s criminal past is quite extensive, resulting in seven arrests, including a couple for aggravated assault and another for check fraud from her days living in Florida. Seriously! Sources say Bravo is claiming they did not know about her lengthy violent criminal history and when they were alerted to it through the blogosphere, were forced to reconsider adding her to the cast permanently to avoid being held responsible for any of her untoward (re: possibly illegal) behaviors! Hey, they’ve already got enough of that on their hands!

I find it very hard to believe that Bravo would not thoroughly and exhaustively background check their cast members – and I believe they do conduct those checks and then cast for maximum drama. I mean, you get a background check to work at Target!

In addition the number one reason Marlo was added to the cast was to create controversy with NeNe as a result of her relationship with Charles. Well, allegedly not only were Marlo and Charles never engaged and Charles refused to be implicated in her schemes; Nene KNEW their relationship was a fraud all along!

In fact, Marlo and NeNe allegedly pulled a fast one and buddied up against other ladies on the cast (although the recent trailer for the season shows them getting into plenty of disputes!) and Marlo also formed friendships with Phaedra and Cynthia Bailey in the hopes the network would keep her on anyways.

StraightFromTheA, who cites their source as “highly credible,” is also claiming that Marlo “didn’t have ANY of the qualifications that Bravo requests for inclusion on the show, i.e. married, divorced or in a long-term relationship with a baller/well-to-do mate, career, kids,” so Bravo simply lost interest in what she could bring to the show long-term. Um… chaos? But I guess with NeNe and Phaedra they’ve already got enough of that!

Marlo’s numerous mugshots are featured below.

Do you think there is truth to the rumor that Marlo will not be included in the cast or just an attempt to create buzz for the new season? Thoughts on Marlos’ background and supposed faux-gagement to Charles Grant?

With the Real Housewives of Atlanta almost upon us, the ladies are out in full-force to promote the show and the dramz! A trailer for show promises tons of bickering, bitchiness, and over-the-top crazy – along with parties galore!

Phaedra Parks tells the Rumor Fix of the new season, “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” not giving away anything about the introduction of Marlo Hampton.

Everybody knows that Phaedra and NeNe Leakes don’t get along and Phaedra reassures us that the feud continues! As for NeNe’s acrimonious appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra reveals she is largely unimpressed by her co-star’s behavior! “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so is Lil John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”

Phaedra also takes a jab at Kandi Burruss in response to some totally true comments she made about Phaedra’s baby-shower last season! “I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower,” Phaedra snips. “It is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”

In other RHOA news, Kim Zolciak is moving full speed ahead with her wedding plans to NFL fiance Kroy Biermann before he changes his mind just days after announcing her engagement on twitter!

In fact TMZ obtained Kim’s wedding invitation (she’s slated to tie the knot on 11/11/11) and it appears Kim, 33, believes she is a mega A-list celebrity!

The reason? Kim, whose wedding is being filmed by Bravo for her new spin-off, is banning her guests from bringing cameras or even cell phones! “In order to protect our privacy on our special day, no cameras or cell phones will be allowed on property. A photo ID will be required for all guests upon entry,” reads the invitation. PHOTOS of Kim’s invitation is below!

And finally, Cynthia Bailey also promises “a lot of drama,” as she discloses there will be “tensions going on with a lot of the girls,” and in “[her] storyline especially.” And she lets us know that the unrest between her sister and husband, Peter Thomas is still going strong. Hey, she has to bring the chaos if she expects to stick around!

As for the ladies’ trip to Africa, rest assured it will be over the top! “Africa will never, ever, ever be the same,” Cynthia exclaims!

While Cynthia’s storyline will focus on the development of her new business, a modeling school, she guarantees viewers will get to see a “different” side of her from last season’s peace-keeper now that she’s learned the ropes of Reality TV 101: Bring the cray-cray! “I get a lot of payback this time,” she hints. I wonder if that means her friendship with NeNe has some issues?!

In case you haven’t seen all the Bravo ads, Season Four of RHOA premieres November 6th at 10/9c.

Thoughts on Phaedra’s comments about NeNe’s appearance on Celebrity Apprentice? Harsh or true? Is Kim delusional with her wedding invites?

Next month the fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres to drama, drama, drama! And below are the official cast photos and bios of the housewives!

This season will focus on new business ventures, changing and imploding relationships, and tons of gossiping, bickering, and back stabbing – Southern-style, of course!

The ladies also take a trip to Africa where their over the top antics take over the safari! Be sure to expect non-stop social events, parties, and excitement as the ladies go head-to-head in what is definitely the most exciting and climactic season yet!

A new housewife, Marlo Hampton will be joining the cast to stir up dramz with The NeNe, but she is not included in the official cast photos. Perhaps she’ll be making a mid-season entrance to make sure the cray-cray level stays at max capacity!

Below are the cast photos, bios and what to expect from the housewives this season. RHOA season 4 premieres Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c. Have I mentioned, I cannot wait?! Cause I can’t!

Real Housewives of Atlanta is starting soon and the drama is unfolding well before the season premieres!

Apparently, soon to be former housewife, Kim Zolciak has fired her long-time assistant and close friend, Sweetie Hughes!

Poor Sweetie has been the victim of not just Kim’s crazy, but also NeNe Leakes’ and radio host Rickey Smiley’s when he started a “Free Sweetie” campaign after the infamous final NeNe vs. Kim blow-out last season! Sweetie claimed the effort ruined her life, although she does communicate with Smiley via Twitter, and defended Kim’s treatment of her. Well, now it seems that Sweetie has been set free!

According to Kim’s daughter Brielle who was questioned via Formspring about Sweetie not living with Kim in the family’s new house; the long-suffering and probably abused assistant was “fiiredd”!

When pushed for more information, Brielle responded “I really don’t want to talk about it” and simply stating: “long story” when asked what happened. She also admitted their family no longer talks to Sweetie! No information about when Sweetie was actually let go, but as of late-July she was still working for Kim.

As for Sweetie she has given no statement on the situation, but she did wish Kim’s younger daughter Arianna a happy birthday via Twitter.

Sweetie is definitely appearing in this seasons RHOA, so hopefully we will get to the bottom of the drama!

In other interesting RHOA news, the almost-divorced, NeNe is now a restaurant owner! NeNe Tweeted that she is opening a Famous Famiglia restaurant in the Sacramento International Airport of all places. The pizza depot is slated to open THIS WEEK on Oct 6th. A photo of the new outpost is below – it’s super classy. Four Michelin stars!

As to why she suddenly decided to go into the Italian Fast Food restaurant industry, perhaps NeNe has been hanging out with Teresa Giudice or something…

Are you surprised Kim fired Sweetie? Do you believe it’s final or just a fight between the two ladies? Are you as shocked as I am that NeNe has gone into the pizza business? Would you eat there?

On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Adrienne deals with a chatty Kim, Kyle throws a charity event, and Lisa confronts the enemy – who happens to be Brandi Glanville. And Taylor! And speaking of Taylor – let’s just pretend she wasn’t there!

Leaving for what is possibly the last Kings game in Sacramento, Adrienne and Paul are waiting on a PJ (that’s slang for private jet) for Kim to arrive and she is late. Very late. When she finally shows up, Paul is concerned about her face. He is itching to get his anesthesia out and do a little nip tuck right on the plane. Hey, the seats recline! I’m concerned about her state of mind? Under the influence or flustered? On the flight, a very spastic Kim raaaaambles on and on making Paul and Adrienne feel a little nutty themselves. Adrienne gives Kim a direction for her loquaciousness by bringing up Crazy Creek. Kim provides Paul with a spot-on demonstration of Lisa skiing in her fur hat– I was dying! Ahahaha! Kim also lets us know she was humped by a bra and thong-wearing Taylor and yeah, she’s had PTS ever since!
