In today’s reality news, Bravo Housewives continue their attempt at world domination!

The Bravo network announced earlier this week that for the first time in history of the series, Housewives from various cities will gather together on one stage for what is being called “The Real Housewives Live Tour.

According to the press release, “Fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with their favorite cast members as the ladies discuss the most talked about moments, reveal cast secrets and answer questions straight from the audience.”

The three-city tour begins in Atlantic City, NJ on October 1 with Caroline Manzo (RHONJ), LuAnn de Lesseps (RHONY), Kyle Richards (RHOBH) and Vicki Gunvalson (RHOC).

On October 8, Sonja Morgan (RHONY), Gretchen Rossi (RHOC), Lisa Vanderpump (RHOBH) and Phaedra Parks (RHOA) will meet fans in Hammond, Indiana.

The tour will then conclude October 15 with NeNe Leakes (RHOA), Jill Zarin (RHONY), Melissa Gorga (RHONJ) and Marysol Patton (RHOM) in Atlanta.

For the fans looking to get up close and personal with the cra cra housewives, it’s gonna cost you! The ticket prices will range from $49.50 to $170.00. They go on sale Friday, August 19.

In other housewives news, a new report is once again dispelling those silly Jill Zarin is considering leaving the Real Housewives of New York City rumors. According to the NY Post, that is far from the truth as the Jillousy has practically been begging Bravo to keep her on the show.

“Jill would re-sign tomorrow if she could. She has been pitching herself very aggressively to keep her on next season, because she’s terrified she’ll be phased out,” reveals a source. “She would love to have her own show like [former "Housewives" star] Bethenny Frankel, but she’s not getting it.” Ouch!

This makes you wonder if Jill was indeed one of the reported two NYC Housewives who told Bravo they would be willing to take a pay cut to remain on the show. In the meantime, some are speculating that Jill alongside Countess LuAnn and Sonja Morgan will indeed be returning next season due to the fact that Bravo is including them in the tour.

Perhaps Jill has now received word from Bravo that she will be returning because she has changed her tune since last week. Jill recently told UsWeekly that she is NOT leaving the show.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3
As you all know by now the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 4 is currently filming, and according to a new report, the ladies are currently in South Africa!

In what has quickly become a Bravo ‘Housewives’ tradition, each of the ‘Housewives’ franchises take a yearly trip to fight away from home film for the show, well with the exceptoion of the recent Real Housewives of Miami season. They were too busy taking cooking lessons.

The Straight From The A blog states all of the Atlanta housewives, with the exception of Kim Zolciak who is nursing her new born, departed for South Africa days ago. Kim however tweeted goodbye to some of her costars, “@IamSheree @PhaedraParks love you guys! Have fun!!! Xxooo,” she wrote.

Bravo is reportedly footing the bill for the trip of course. While  Nene Leakes, Phaedra, Kandi, Sheree and Cynthia all made the trip, there’s no word yet on whether new housewife Marlo Hampton went with them or if she’s even allowed to leave the country, you know, considering her extensive criminal record. Oh well, here’s to hoping  the Nene behaves differently on this trip than she did in Miami on season 3!

Meanwhile, Kim recently tweeted a number of photos including a  pic of herself without her wig or any make up on! That must see photo is below along with other new photos of herself, her son and fiance Kroy!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3

Days after a report questioned whether Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes’ “divorce” to husband Gregg Leakes was a publicity stunt for the series (they were photographed together looking cozy and trying to hide from cameras), a new report today sheds some new light on the behind the scenes taping of the RHOA as the 4th season is still filming.

The Decatur Metro blog ponders just how real the show is as the writer sat next to housewives Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss and two of their friends last Thursday during a restaurant taping at Decatur’s Wahoo Grill. Below are some of the highlights of what the writer discovered -

“1. The conversation was repeatedly interrupted and guided by a crew member. The women would talk for a few minutes, then a crew member would approach the table and tell the women what to talk about. At one point, the crew member told the women they needed to switch to a light topic because they’d already spent a lot of time on serious topics.

2. When one of the crew members was leaving, one of the ‘Housewives’ said she would see him tomorrow at the ‘funeral home scene.’ If she’s calling it a ‘scene,” how ‘real’ can it be?

3. For some reason, the first taping of the women exiting the restaurant didn’t work. At the crew’s direction, the women returned to their seats, then taped a second exit scene.”

The writer also adds that most of the Atlanta housewives are driving rental cars. Very interesting report. It will be interesting to see how the 4th season of the RHOA turns out as reality shows always take a turn for the worse once the stars start faking it, example the Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This report is however not that surprising as with the exception of the Nene, all of the housewives seem to be getting along rather well. And what good is that for the drama and ratings?

I will add that this doesn’t mean all of the drama is fake (example the tour bus fight between Nene and Kim last season was very real) as it is actually very common practice for producers of reality shows to “guide” certain conversations and scenes. An example of this is let’s say some drama went down at an event between two cast members, the producers could encourage their costars to meet up the next day to talk about it. Also most of the housewives series have different production companies behind them so the practices are likely different for each series.

In other RHOA news, just weeks after giving birth to her son Kroy Jagger, Kim Zolciak has lost most if not all of her baby weight!

In pictures below, Kim, 33, shows off her post baby body! In an interview with Wetpaint, the mother of three reveals just how she lost the baby weight so quickly. Excerpts from Kim’s interview below -

We saw the recent pics of you and you look amazing! How did you drop the baby weight so quickly? What are your workout and diet secrets?

Kim Zolciak: I am unable to work out for another few weeks, although I am not BIG on going to the gym. I do think breastfeeding really helps and Kroy and I walk the baby every night.

Is there any area that you particularly want to work on?

I love my curves and really just want to firm up. My least favorite part of my body I would say are my legs. I have thicker legs then I would like and have to run to keep them in shape!

Kim also adds that she is not big on dieting and believes in eating everything in moderation. Recent photos of Kim below!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta got together this week to help Cynthia Bailey celebrate the opening of her fashion school in Atlanta!

According to the TalkingWithTami blog, which was on hand to snap photos at the event, The Bailey Agency offers an intense six-week course with Cynthia, exploring the many different facets of modeling such as etiquette, walking the catwalk, posing, photography, film production, make-up amongst other things.

In attendance were all of Cynthia’s RHOA castmates including Nene Leakes, Kim Zolciak who shows off her post baby body (her first public appearance since giving birth to her son), Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, newbie Marlo Hampton and of course Sheree Whitfield who is pictured above with her Birkin bag and Cynthia.

This event will be featured on the 4th season of the RHOA which is currently filming. More photos from the event below!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta stepped out this week to support Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas, who alongside Robert “RL” Thomas of the R&B group Next, held a party in celebration of the opening of their new lounge BarOne in Atlanta.

If you recall, Peter, who was found not guilty this week of assaulting a former female employee, shut down his previous lounge/restaurant Uptown last year when it stopped doing well. No word yet on whether or not Cynthia also invested in this latest venture of Peter’s. And speaking of Cynthia, she recently opened up her own modeling agency called The Bailey Agency.

Metromix.com snapped photos at the event which was hosted by the one and only Nene Leakes. Above are housewives Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield with Peter. Below, more photos of all the housewives including Kandi Burruss.

In other news, it’s now been weeks since Kim Zolciak gave birth to her baby boy Kroy Jagger and we have still yet to see photos of the little one. Many are now wondering why as Kim is not one to shy away from cameras, even selling releasing her sensual pregnancy photos to the tabloids.

Well it appears Kim is planning to wait a little bit before releasing her baby’s pics. “I’m going to go with a month or two. She’s figuring it out,” said her rep to the Wetpaint website when asked about the baby’s photos. The site adds that Kim has already sold the photo rights to an as-yet-unnamed magazine.

According to a new report, Marlo Hampton is the newest castmember of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!

The StraightFromTheA blog broke the news this week as Marlo stepped out to attend an event with RHOA alums Sheree Whitfield, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey.

And in case you’re wondering, pictured above with Marlo is her fiance NFL Player Charles Grant. And if that names rings a bell to you, it’s because Charles has been heavily rumored to have had a fling with a certain Ms. Nene Leakes. In fact, Nene was rumored to have gotten pregnant for Charles just back in December.

Both Nene and Charles denied the rumors back then but with Bravo’s strategic casting of Marlo, one has to wonder if those rumors were true after all. The StraightFromTheA blog speculates that Marlo was brought on to stir up some trouble with the Nene. Even more interesting, Marlo is said to be a stylist who has styled Nene in the past plus she has an arrest record for assaulting anther female, reportedly over a man.

And as was reported a while back, all of the Atlanta housewives from last season are returning this season so Marlo is not replacing anyone on the show. There had been some rumors that she was brought on to replace Nene but those are false. Marlo’s casting also makes sense as a report came out a month ago stating Bravo is seriously in talks with both Nene and Kim Zolciak to give them their own spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel. And we all know what happened with Bethenny as she ended up not returning to the Real Housewives of NYC.

While Bravo has yet to officially confirm Marlo’s casting (they never do until a series is ready to debut), it’s safe to say Marlo is the newest Atlanta Housewife! That is unless Bravo has a change of heart and decides to give her the Fernanda Rocha treatment, aka demote her to an extra because she ended up being too boring. But judging from Marlo’s storyline, that is highly unlikely.

More photos below of Marlo with the other RHOA housewives.

With two months left until her June due date, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak celebrated her baby shower with the help of some of her costars over the weekend!

Kim, who is expecting child #3 with NFL player beau Kroy Beirmann, is said to have had an “extravagant” baby shower according to the TalkingWithTami blog. She wore a Rafael Cennamo dress with Guiseppe Stilettos at the baby shower which took place at the Grand Atrium in downtown Atlanta.

In attendance were Kim’s costars Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and her hubby Apollo Nida, Kim’s assistant Sweetie Hughes. Also in attendance but not pictured were Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey. Not in attendance of course was Kim’s frenemy Nene Leakes who publicly stated last month that she is “not interested in seeing the baby, and I have no plans to send a gift.”

As for Kim, it seems she is unhappy with the release of these photos as she tweeted yesterday, “Wow I invite a “friend” to the shower and she releases pics to the press!! Unreal! Several others cud of but haven’t.”

Days after Bravo confirmed the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be returning for a 4th season, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is now reporting all six of the housewives will be returning!

According to the AJC, Nene Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey will be back next season despite Nene’s public statements about having major doubts regarding coming back to the show.

The site also adds that Bravo has no plans to add a new housewife to the cast, a first in the franchise’s history. As we have reported, the Atlanta housewives are Bravo’s most successful franchise, averaging close to 3 million viewers an episode for their last season.

Filming is slated to begin later this month.

In other news, RadarOnline is reporting that Nene Leakes might be addicted to plastic surgery. Despite having had liposuction done on her thighs, hips and stomach, Nene is apparently willing to go back under the knife to get a flatter stomach.

“NeNe is determined to have a flatter tummy and she intends to have more liposuction done so she looks her very best this summer,” a source tells Radar. “Her friends are worried that she has become too obsessed with plastic surgery and have warned her about the dangers, but she just wants to be the best image of herself that she can be.”

Nene, 41, is reportedly very insecure about her looks “despite being loud and over-confident in public” says the source. “She has always wanted to be famous and now that she is those insecurities have been heightened for her to look perfect.”

Since becoming famous, Radar reports the 6 ft tall Nene has had several procedures done including a nose job, breast reduction and lift, liposuction on her tummy, thighs and hips plus new veneers on her teeth.
