Last night Bravo was up to some chicanery – telling us Real Housewives of Atlanta's finale was an hour and a half and then tacking on some sit-down special with NeNe Leakes for the last 30 minutes. I have to admit NeNe basically ripping up Cynthia Bailey's friendship contract and making it acid rain all over the WWHL stage was far more entertaining than any old memorial for Kenya Moore's dog on what looked like Chateau Sheree's dirt patch vacant grounds.
So anyway, Kandi Burruss and Todd have been through a lot in their relationship, most prevalently they have dodged the mighty weave-wearing bullet of Mama Joyce and her Wal-mart wedges being thrown at them from all angles. Now that they've done a MJ exorcism by developing the play A Mother's Love together, it's time to talk prenup. Kandi wants one and wants one she shall have – so long as the requests are reasonable according to Todd. Basically both parties leave with what they came in with and split everything they accrued together down the middle.
The ladies will close the season with as much drama as they opened with. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker celebrate their joint-creation of A Mother's Love, which hopefully Porsha Stewart will actually show up for!
And Kenya Moore will formally say good-bye to her beloved Velvet with a funeral. Next week the ladies head into the epic – and I mean that for real this time! – reunion where Porsha reportedly assaulted Kenya resulting in her getting fired.
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!
NeNe and Tony dropped by VH1's Big Morning Buzz to dish on all things DWTS and Housewives. I sometimes find NeNe a bit too full of herself, but that's also part of her charm, right? That is charm, isn't it? However, I love her rapport with Tony, and Nick just seems like someone fun to have coffee with first thing in the morning. It's a win-win!
NeNe Leakes turned the tables on Andy Cohen in a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. Nene got Andy to confess who has the say in casting the Real Housewives, whether he only hires Housewives with money and are heading for bankruptcy and so much more. Andy even slams the other "wives" style copycat ripoff shows.
Andy reveals that his favorite Real Housewives franchise is "the one that I'm watching; the one I'm screening. I go all over the map. Atlanta makes me laugh the hardest. It's consistently the funniest, although new York makes me [laugh] too."
The most fashionable franchise is Beverly Hills. "I think Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta have the most fashion." What do you like about BH? "I like seeing their houses. The weather is always great and they're always outside. And it's all roses and hair and.."
NeNe asks, do you have a hand in hiring and firing housewives? "I do". NeNe squawks, "So if anything ever happens to me, I need to come for you? What! are you kidding me?" Andy asks if she seriously knew that or not and she swears she had NO idea.
Well, well, well, Julianne Hough has found herself in a bit of a pickle, hasn't she? The former Dancing with the Stars pro recently came under fire from some former co-stars when she returned this week as a judge with some harsh words for Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Julianne's critiques came during the Switch-Up Week where the pros were paired up with a celebrity who wasn't their normal partner. Maks was dancing with Winnie Cooper Danica McKellar instead of his regular teammate, Olympian Meryl Davis. Julianne was met with boos from the audience when she chastised Maks of his performance with Danica, saying, "You just had to phone it in so you could go back to Meryl."
While Maks has tried to remain diplomatic about Julianne's comments, his fellow professional dancers and the reality show's contestants are coming to his defense…except for NeNe Leakes. NeNe is totally TeamHough because, well, you know, she loves drama and instigating and all that jazz.
As a result of Porsha's violence against Kenya she is allegedly fired (even though she was on the chopping block long before the incident).
NeNe Leakes has already spoken out stating that Kenya and her "fake booty" should be fired instead, but now TMZ reports the ladies of RHOA have banded together and are threatening a walk-out if Porsha is let go! Of course not joining in the protest is Kenya herself who is campaigning hard to get Porsha fired!
"Derek is great," shares NeNe. "He's a great choreographer. I've watched him dance over the seasons and I know how dope he is. What I like is that Derek knows that I am known for being fabulous – not that Tony didn't know that – but maybe he didn't know how to bring that out."
I cannot explain the feather sticking out of Derek's crotch in the above picture. I also have no words for Derek and NeNe's tribal-inspired jazz number. Derek looks like a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz flapping his arms around next to giant NeNe. I can't – watch the video below.
No elimination tonight – last week's and this week's scores and viewer votes will be combined to determine who goes home next week. Will NeNe survive?
