Andy Cohen wants us to believe the drama on Real Housewives is genuine. <fits of laughter> I know, right? It’s real, he said. It’s all about casting the right, highly emotional women, he said. And if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you, he probably said to himself.
Andy addressed the scripted complaints that plague the franchise, actually the majority reality shows these days, in a recent interview with Attitude Magazine.
NeNe Leakes wants it known that she is NOT. GOING. ANYWHERE… unless confronted by fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta co-stars! Weighing in on the season and her new pal Phaedra Parks‘ possible divorce, NeNe advises Phaedra to follow her heart, meanwhile Kenya Moore suggests Phaedra is actually following viewer’s opinion when it comes to her divorce from Apollo Nida!
“Whatever goes on in Phaedra’s home is between her and Apollo – we don’t have to sleep with Apollo at night,” NeNe adds. Well, neither does Phaedra – at least not for the next 6 or 7 years (depending on good behavior).
The synopsis reads – “Three grown sisters, who share the same last name of Brown, are suddenly forced to move in together after the most successful sister has a nervous breakdown from ending a 1-day marriage.”
The trailer looks even worse than I imagined. With the exception of D. Woods, Janet, and Timon Durrett, the acting leaves a lot to be desired. (On a shallow note, hello, Timon! Where has this hottie been hiding?) That said, Life Twirls On might be sooo bad that it ends up being really good. For a laugh. Adjust the volume on your device, watch the trailer below, and tell us what you think!
NeNe Leakes stopped by New York Live to talk about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Of course NeNe has a lot to say now that she doesn’t have anyone to challenge her on her own little press tour. When asked to accept responsibility for her words and actions on the reunion, however, all she had to say was, “You’re right. I’m wrong.” Typical NeNe.
NeNe shared her thoughts on the “gang ups” on the reunion, jealousy from her co-stars, the newer cast versus the original cast, and more. About the reunion, she shared, “There was definitely gang ups and I kind of understand. I’ve been there since the beginning and a lot of girls come on this show and they are like, “OK, let me take NeNe on, that’s the first one I’m gonna get.'”
To no one’s surprise, NeNe Leakes hopes that The Real Housewives of Atlantacast will get a MAJOR overhaul next season. NeNe is praying that none of the unmarried Housewives get invited back. She also talks about her current co-stars trying to knock her off of her throne.
She chatted with Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts on Live! With Kelly and Michael this morning. She shared on last night’s reunion episode, “They are mad, honey. They’re out there attacking Miss NeNe Leakes.” When Robin asks why she thinks that is, “I’m a threat. I am a threat and they are mad.” Michael asks if they’re jealous because she’s the only original cast member left. “Well, of course. Everybody wants to knock the queen off her throne, but she’s not going anywhere.”
I don’t know about you but I consider this season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion to be basically an extension of last season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, albeit without anyone’s clip-in hair pieces being used to mop the stage floor.
Porsha Williams explains there “wasn’t a lot of screaming and yelling” during the reunion because the women just “wanted to be heard” and “clear up whatever the misunderstandings were” – although there also wasn’t a lot of progress made!
“People were definitely upset last year and lashed out with anger. This year I feel like people were very emotional. It was really similar to the therapy session,” Porsha describes. Although Porsha isn’t really in the business of clearing up any of her shade – in fact she stands by accusing Peter Thomas of cheating (why would she? No shade), and her refusal to apologize to Kenya Moore over last season’s fight.
NeNe Leakes has 99 problems… and they’re all her fault! Her problems include: wigs, friendships, successes, rejection of Claudia Jordan, saying what she said because she said it… NeNe’s refrain throughout the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, was “You’re right, I’m wrong.” Probably. No, it’s not NeNe who has a million problems – it’s RHOA… This was supposed to be the SEASON 7 reunion, but almost everything discussed was a SEASON 6 issue. Dejaview!
The only things different are Apollo is incarcerated and Claudia is lapping up everyone’s storyline dregs like she’s been through the dessert on a stallion booty with no name and it’s been good to get into the shade. In Atlanta no one can remember your name unless you try extra hard with the reads and the complaints!
Let’s talk outfits: Porsha Williams‘ was the worst – it looked like a cheap shower curtain. And that train! That girl and her issues with trains. #UndergroundRailroad.
Tonight’s guests on Watch What Happens Live were Kenya Moore and Daisy Lewellyn from Blood, Sweat and Heels. Daisy shared an update on her cancer battle and Kenya shared her thoughts on the reunion nonsense tonight. Kenya also dished on her boyfriend and her Brandi Glanville feud.
Andy mentions his surprise that Phaedra shared tonight on the reunion that she isn’t filing for divorce from Apollo Nida. Kenya says it was it news to her, too. She also says that Porsha Williams’ new accusations that Kordell cheated was something she hadn’t heard before. “I heard the opposite, but…”
