A robbery and a couple not as maritally harmonious as they'd like us to think? It seems those are just a few of the bits of gossip being exposed from sources at the taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.
Our friend Tamara Tattles recently got the inside scoop on the behind the scenes happenings at the RHOA reunion, and it is good! We all know that Porsha Williams was arrested after beating the ever-loving poo out of Kenya BullMoorn, but we certainly haven't heard anything about a second arrest that allegedly occurred during the filming of the reunion. What? There is also some pretty good dirt on the state ofPhaedra Parks and Apollo Nida's marriage. Hell, the shoes he wore to the reunion alone warrant her to kick him to the curb!
Have you bought your tickets yet to NeNe Leakes Vegas debut? The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has certainly parlayed her reality infamy into a bevy of entertainment and business opportunities, and the latest endeavor has NeNe sexing it up with Cirque du Soleil. As we previously reported, NeNe is set to star for five nights in Cirque's Zumanity.
The Neenster recently shared pictures and video from the shoot on her personal site via Instagram, writing, “Behind the scenes at my sexy shoot with @cirque#zumanity Get your tickets, hunni. June 27-July 1st in Vegas!”
I must say, the above picture is awesome and awkward and intriguing all at the same time. Check out a quick video of the shoot after the jump. That NeNe has some great legs…I will certainly give her that!
NeNe Leakes' wishes are coming true. Recently our favorite Atlanta peach waxed nostalgic about season six of the Real Housewives of Atlanta past. She went so far as to tell Andy Cohen that he should think about bringing the original cast back together. A cast that included former Atlanta housewives Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak and Lisa Wu (at the time, Hartwell).
Well part of that wish is coming true because Lisa Wu is returning to reality TV, but not in Atlanta. Lisa will star alongside four other women on Hollywood Divas.
So… did the schools ever see that money? Of course not! Neither lady has ponied up the "certified checks." After seeing their mention on the lovely and inspiring reality show, the DPS released a statement to Radar Online.
Yesterday Apollo Nida entered a guilty plea for his participation in a money fraud ring. Given that he already has a felony record and plead guilty, it's assured that Apollo will serve time. He was not sentenced yesterday.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star accepted full responsibility for his role in the illegal behaviors, and cited the pressure to 'Keep up with the Leakes' for his decision to return to a life of crime!
Apollo arrived in a cream colored suit (thankfully he didn't wear his RHOA reunion getup!), and accepted full responsibility for his actions. “It’s my fault at the end of the day,” he told Judge Charles Pannell in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
Last month Apollo Nida's attorney filed a "waiver of indictment", which basically says he's waiving his right to a trial and it's usually filed when a plea deal has been hammered out. From what we know, the waiver is filed shortly before an official plea is entered before the judge. And that seems to be what is going on here. The waiver documents were filed on April 24th and today it's reported that Apollo plead guilty to some of those initial charges. It looks like it's safe to say he's worked out an agreement but we don't know any further details until they're filed and available online – hopefully tonight or tomorrow.
Is it true? Has the day really come? Can I finally stop talking about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? I mean, how many hours of this three-ring circus have we been subjected to? What was last night hour 475? I chugged a 5 Hour Energy drink vodka soda and settled in for two hours of she-said/she-said-you're dumb-annnnd now here comes the husbands! Oh and the husbands, they sure showed up. Or at least Apollo Nida did. He was gunning for Kenya Moore's title as Queen of the Krazies!
Of all the things that happened last night it was the deafening silence of Kenya in the wake of Phaedra Parks' atomic bomb of verbal destruction. At some point, Kenya, realizing she had not a friend in the eaves, gave up. She just resorted to the silent game, but it was because she was trying not to cry.
Kenya can match any of these broads with her outlandishness, wild accusations, and sheer commitment to getting the job done. NeNe Leakes is easy – she's all loud buffoonery and nebulous threats. Kandi Burruss is just gonna say her bit – loudly – and then get teary eyed, but nobody hates Kandi enough to truly come for her. Cynthia Bailey perpetually wears an expression that says, 'Please don't kick me – I'm already down!" there's no satisfaction in gunning for her. And Porsha Stewart, well, she just gets louder and wilder and self-destructs on a comical level. But Phaedra… Phaedra does not shake.
Even though your DVR claimed there was a two hour season finale of Real Housewives of Atlantatonight, it was really just an hour and thirty minutes long, topped off with an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Sneaky way to again claim RHOA's ratings as WWHL ratings, too? Anywhoo… Andy sits down one-on-one with Porsha Williams to chat about the reunion brawl with Kenya Moore and her abuse claims regarding Kordell Stewart and she calls Kenya out for lying about being the first black Miss USA winner.
Porsha says she's been in contact with Phaedra, Kandi and NeNe since everything went down, but she hasn't heard from Cynthia.
Andy wants to know what her cast mates had to say to her. "Phaedra was just really upset. These girls know me now at this point. I've been their friend for two years straight, so for them to see me act completely out of character and let Kenya win like that. That was the main thing, I was sorry that it had to reach that point, I was sorry that that was my reaction, but more than that I was sorry that I gave her the power to make me go and do something like that."
