I don't know if we should be excited or scared that the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are back in full force. Of course, I make that statement while cowering behind my sofa. There is a lot of change going on with the ladies, and there is a bunch of drama happening with the original cast. With NeNe Leakes destined for Hollywood and Kim Zolciak wanting to fade into obscurity by actually being a housewife, I don't even know where to begin.
There has been a lot of speculation about what is going on with the ladies in the peach state. While some (okay, one) of the women has moved on from reality television (although she's happy to cause drama and pick up her check when she's not acting on a new sitcom), the others want to hold on to their Bravo fame with every inch of their manicured claws. That said, what's to become of Kim who has distanced herself from cast members while focusing on her spin-off career? That, my friends, is the million dollar question…and the answer will make housewives' history!
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta – and so far, I'm liking things. We checked in with all the housewives, where we learned that the more some people change, the more they stay the same! And we unfortunately met new Housewife, Kenya Moore.
She made a helluva a first impression – I now totally associate Kenya with "coochie crack." Here's how she introduced herself: She yelled "coochie crack" at the top of her lungs about 20 times, then screamed 'SECURITY!' like she was some sort of A-Lister up there with Victoria Beckham. Right, so this one's a live-wire!
Things begin with the very, very richMs. NeNe Leakes, who is channeling Bret Michaels realness with that bandana. Surprisingly Greggalicious is also part of the equation. He's fetching her mail and begging her for some love. My how the tables have turned now that NeNe holds the keys – and the wallet! NeNe is playing coy about rekindling things with Gregg. C'mon – you know these two are meant to be and I sort of love them together.
NeNe explains that she's also been method acting and exuding her inner Kim Zolciak by practicing trailer living on the set of The New Normal. And our first kapow of the season. I have so missed my NeNeisms.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter 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 the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The "Money & Power" issue features a glammed up NeNe bathing in diamonds and sipping champagne because that is how the very, very rich role. Bloop! NeNe's cover hits newstands Nov 5th as the Dec/Jan issue. Well, Ms. Leakes that is quite an honor.
Luckily NeNe, who will wear a dress made of money in EBONY, hasn't let all the fame go to her head too much (unless She by SheBroke happens to be in the room!), NeNe was spotted shopping at a West Hollywood Target this weekend according to People Magazine. The soon-to-be-megastar was there with a friend and buying Sprite.
Angela also provided an interview to Vibe in which she claimed Phaedra was a criminal mastermind behind an auto theft ring. Angela also alleges that her involvement with Phaedra's criminal organization led to not only her incarceration but Apollo's!
Phaedra's mother, Pastor Regina Bell also filed a defamation suit against Vibe for $6M and TMZ reported Regina settled for a pathetic $10! Um… yeah to the right – that won't even buy a lady lunch!
November is going to be a busy month for Bravo.Real Housewives of Atlanta returns and NeNe Leakes has gotten even bigger than her too big for her britches status – especially since Kim Zolciak has allegedly been demoted to 'friend of the Housewives' status! Buuurn!
Well, they're back and they're down one blonde wig! That's right Real Housewives of Atlanta returns Nov 4th featuring two new Housewives and no Kim Zolciak! At least not in the official cast photo.
Bravo just announced the return of its most popular franchise (yes – it beats Jersey) and there are some exciting new ventures on the horizons. On-screen besties NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey are both back. As are Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss. As previously leaked (in what is the worst kept secret is Atlanta) Kenya Moore joins the cast. And the other new Housewife is for-real Atlanta socialite Porsha Stewart!
Surprisingly missing is of course Kim! Who is not included in the official cast photo, but is listed as a Housewife. Rumors were abound that she was basically non-existant during filming because of her pregnancy and the other women started protesting her lack of involvement. Rumor has it this spawned Bravo to reduce her role in the series. Kim hasn't been tweeting about the new release date. Perhaps this means her spin-off is a permanent deal and she'll be lessening her role as a Housewife in exchange for her role as a housewife.
NeNe was all to happy too announce on twitter that she was the "The only original standing. That should tell you a lot." I see she's let go of grudges. "Big surprises coming this season on the housewives! Tune n & get the truth! If they don't show it, I'll tell ya!" she also wrote.
