Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss

Following the record-breaking season 7 premiere of the Real Housewives of AtlantaKandi Burruss dished to Bravo how she handled the messy situation between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida. When asked how she is dealing with Apollo’s legal situation, not to mention the demise of Apollo and Phaedra’s marriage, while being a friend to both of them, Kandi admitted, “It’s very hard.”

Phaedra is always assuming I’m siding with Apollo, which isn’t true,” insisted Kandi. “Todd and Apollo became pretty good friends, so I would say he takes Apollo’s side a lot. Todd and I have serious debates over their issues. I get to the point where I am like, ‘Listen Todd, we should not be arguing about their problems.’ It’s crazy really.” Phaedra said NeNe has been the most supportive.

In today’s surprise, a new episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be airing tonight on Bravo! But more on that below.

First, following Nene Leakes’ claims that she is “rich… very rich” due to the Trump checks she received from doing Celebrity Apprentice, it now appears she might have fibbed a lot little. A Bravo housewife fibbing? You don’t say!

“While you were running your mouth, I was running to the bank … depositing a Trump check!” NeNe claimed to Sheree Whitfield on the RHOA season opener adding, “I’m rich, bitch!” And to further prove her wealth to millions of strangers viewers, the Nene was seen looking at a $9 million dollar home in Miami.

However, Donald Trump Jr. is now speaking out against Nene’s claims, telling the Wetpaint blog that if the Nene is indeed rich or very rich rather, it is not due to any checks from his dad Donald Trump.

When asked about Nene’s claims of wealth via Donald, Trump Jr. told Wetpaint, “Honestly, I have no idea.” He continued, “All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it.”

Trump Jr. added: “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.” Ouch!

NENE LEAKES THREATENS TO QUIT RHOA IF SHE DOESN’T GET OWN SPINOFF!

So just how much did Nene earn on Celebrity Apprentice? Well that exact amount is unknown but Piers Morgan, who won the 1st season of the show back in 2008, revealed he and his castmates only received about $25,000 each to do the show. So perhaps that amount has since gone up to $9 million in a span of 3 years! Thus making the Nene very rich!

Nene has since backtracked on her “very rich” comments claiming she simply meant she was spiritually wealthy. Uh uh.

Meanwhile, the ratings for the 4th season of the RHOA continues to soar! With over 3.3 million viewers tuning in for Sunday’s episode, the series continues to remain the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise. In fact, the recent episode of RHOA was seen by 1.1 million more viewers than the still very impressive 2.2 million viewers that watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. It appears the RHOA ladies and their manufactured drama are here to stay!

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOA! Yes, Bravo has decided to air a new full-episode tonight.

On the 7th episode this season titled ‘Law By Sheree,‘ Shereé is served with legal papers, and turns to Phaedra for representation. The two confidently face Sheree’s ex in court, but to their dismay, he has a trick up his sleeve. Kim and Kroy bring baby KJ home and chaos erupts in the house. On an all-new episode of “Kandi Koated Nights,” Kandi chats with guests Marlo Hampton and baller boyfriend Charles Grant. One of Kandi’s co-hosts asks Charles what it was like to date NeNe and it doesn’t take long for the gossip to spread.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THE NENE LIED ABOUT BEING VERY RICH? THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PREVIEW!

Last Sunday’s premiere episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta may have left some fans disappointed, but according to the Nielsen Ratings it was the “highest rated season premiere in series history”!

Over 2.9 million people tuned in to watch NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield engage in “toof wars” (thanks RT commentariat for coming up with that one!) and was the number one watched “unscripted cable telecast” (re: reality TV) on Sunday night. Additionally, it was the most watched season premiere in Real Housewives history! Hotlanta truly lives up to its name!

The season is about to get much more dramatic, according to Bravo, as the ladies embark on a safari adventure and continue to settle the score. However, filming was far from easy as the Huffington Post is reporting that Kim Zolciak and her former BFFL NeNe refused to speak!

“Nene and Kim refused to film a single scene together this season,” an insider reveals. “For 14 weeks we will watch the show play out where its two breakout stars refuse to talk to each other.” Wow! If you were expecting a sit-down to hash out their differences, expect otherwise.

“Producers begged the two ladies to film a scene together. They wanted them to sit down on camera and talk about what went wrong like they did on the New York version of the show with Bethenny [Frankel] and Jill [Zarin],” a friend of NeNe’s detailed. Do NeNe and friend belong in the same sentence?

“But unlike Jill, Nene wouldn’t fall for it. She knew she was being set up. Nene knows that Bravo is developing a spin off show for Kim and would edit Kim to be more sympathetic to set up her new show. So she refused to be part of any of it.” Ok, don’t hate me for saying it, but I think NeNe was smart for refusing to partake. She knows she can’t keep her cool in situations like that and it pretty much ruined Jill’s reputation after she tried in vain to recapture her friendship with Bethenny following a season of bad blood. Well, there’s always the reunion!

In other Kim news, her 11-11-11 nuptials to fiancé Kroy Biermann will be happening this Friday, and the second tackiest wedding of the year — second to Kim Kardashian, of course — is soon to be deluging us with photos of the event. Despite the similarities between the two Kims (both marrying much-younger athletes) Kim Z promises her Made For TV wedding is nothing like Kim K’s! “If I doubted my marriage to Kroy even 1 percent, I would never do it,” she insisted.

“I hate it that Kim’s going through what she’s going through,” Kim says in an interview, sympathizing with Kim K. “It’s hard, I mean it is hard to be in the press and have your relationship dissected. It’s unfortunate, but Kim and Kroy are not Kim and Kris.” Thankfully…

Revealing that she has been filming “behind-the-scenes stuff” (aka her new spin-off?), Kim is quick to point out that Bravo never forced her to televise the event. Kim claims the network was more than happy to accommodate any requests she had related to filming and put no “pressure” on her to share more than she wanted to. Kim has stated in previous interviews that we will not see her giving birth!

Well, here’s hoping Kim and Kroy’s marriage lasts longer than 72-days because while I can handle two Kims’ fantasy weddings, I’m not sure I can take two Kims’ fantasy divorces!

ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE RHOA RATINGS? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM AND NENE WILL RECONCILE AT SOME POINT? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S WEDDING AND POTENTIAL SPIN-OFF?

For the second season in a row, Nene Leakes found herself on the receiving end of major backlash from fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Following her tour bus fight with costar Kim Zolciak and shameful display in Miami, Nene has received criticism for her behavior on the show. And now in her latest Bravo blog, Nene attempts to defend herself, while also letting her fans know she is actually the victim of her costars. According to Nene, all of her fellow housewives have “formed an alliance” against her with the exception of Cynthia who Nene feels is the only one who “has a brain of her own.” Oh the irony.

Excerpts from Nene’s blog below -

There are so many issues I could address over the past few weeks with these ladies, but I choose not to because it’s easy to attack and judge! Those of you who have formed an opinion, nothing I say will change that! For those of you who love me, you will continue to do so. These ladies have apparently formed an alliance except for Cynthia who happens to have a brain of her own. I don’t have the energy nor do I have the time to stoop to their level of ignorance. I understand that everything about me is under attack. From the color of my polish to the style of my shoes because I’m a threat! I refuse to follow the leader. I am the leader! I have a take charge attitude so that makes me fierce competition… I’m a star in the sky so I’ll just stay up high because through it all, I’m still standing! Thanks for all the comments, the good and the bad.

Allrighty. Whatever helps Nene sleep at night. Meanwhile, things between Nene and Kim continues to deteriorate as the two, well mostly Nene, attacked each other on twitter Sunday night.

While Kim appeared on WWHL on Sunday, Nene wrote numerous tweets calling her a “trashy whore” and claiming she plays the victim role. Andy read one of the tweets to Kim on the show, after which she said Nene needs to leave her alone and worry about her warrants.

However, the most notable tweet from Nene came when a fan asked, “What u think abt Kim being preggo?” Nene tweeted back, “3 kids by 3 different daddys & no husband is nothing 2 b all happy about.” Ouch. Oddly enough, Nene has made the same claim at least three times in the past week alone on twitter, while Kim has yet to deny it. Nene has also yet to deny Kim’s claims that she has warrants.

And finally, the finale episode of the RHOA shattered all kinds of records for Bravo. With over 4.37 million viewers tuning in, it was the most watched Housewives episode ever in the history of the network. But even before the finale aired, RHOA had surpassed the Real Housewives of New Jersey to once again become the highest rated housewives series, averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode this season.

The Atlanta housewives reportedly received $100,000 each for season 2, and $150,000 each for their 3rd season. It’s safe to assume that amount will increase even more for season 4. Even safer to assume there will be a 4th season.
