Real Housewives of Atlanta

upscale-magazine-phaedra-parks

Former (or is it current?) entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks appears on the March cover of Upscale Magazine alongside two other ladies of reality TV: Tameka Raymond (Atlanta Exes) and LaTavia Robertson (R&B Divas Atlanta). 

In a quote about her experiences appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra explains that though the show may have ahem… scripted moments, the stars certainly aren't treated like actors! 

“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays," Phaedra says of one of the glaring pitfalls of being on reality TV. "We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they're getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”

NeNe and Gregg Leakes shopping in Soho

Well, that's an hour of my life I won't get back.  NeNe Leakes headed off to NYC this week, ditching a radio interview that was supposed to be about last week's Real Housewives of Atlanta episode featuring Kenya Moore's charity event, so she could spill this "hot tea" on The View instead. So we tuned in.  Mistake. 

They start off asking NeNe to weigh in on Mama Joyce and Kandi Burruss and Todd, since they were on the show yesterday.  When asked what she thinks about the drama between the three, she says, "nothing".  When prodded if Mama Joyce should let go and let Kandi make her own mistakes, NeNe will only say "She should let Kandi make her mistakes". 

On to the charity event.  Whoopi asks, "So it's a charity event in your honor? When did you find out about this?"  NeNe replies, "I heard through the girls that there was going to be a charity event in my honor. I happen to be a big supporter of Saving Our Daughters, women of domestic abuse and all those things.  I heard about it the night before from Kenya.  I felt like if you're gonna honor someone, you should at least call them up and say "hey, I would like to honor you, are you available on this date?"

This week's reality TV viewer numbers were all over the place. On Sunday, just over four million viewers watched Kenya's charity ball for Saving our Daughters on Real Housewives of Atlanta. That is a considerable drop from last week's record breaking 4.638 million but still above this season's average. 

The commitment ceremony nonsense on Sister Wives is not holding viewers' attention.  Only 1.825 million bothered to watch this week – down almost 600K since the premiere. Keeping Up with the Kardashians scored big this week with 2.574 million tuning in to see Kanye propose to Kimmy. Sweet. Now let's send these two to the moon. Forever.

On Monday,  1.952 million viewers tuned in for the season three premiere of Basketball Wives L.A. Meanwhile, both Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (1.711) and Vanderpump Rules (1.780) lost a lot of viewers this week - but Vanderpump Rules came out on top again.

On Tuesday, part one of the Shahs of Sunset reunion garnered 1.151 million, which is a drop from last week. The trainwreck that is Dance Moms these days logged just over two million viewers this week. Forever ruling the night is Teen Mom 2 – and 2.403 million heads exploded after Jenelle and Nathan decided that they were in a good place and want to make a baby.

I bet Saving Our Daughters is sorry they ever allowed their charity to be the focus of a masquerade benefit held by Kenya Moore on this season's Real Housewives of Atlanta.  The aftermath of the charity event gets messier by the day.  There seems to be no clear answer as to how much was donated and by whom.  And the organization itself has come under scrutiny as it has been touting itself as a 501(c)3 charity when that exempt status was revoked by the IRS last year.  

Saving Our Daughters released another statement yesterday to try to explain why they lost their tax exempt status and how they're working to rectify it.  I'd like to note here that they removed their previous statement about the event from their website.

The chairman writes, "Saving Our Daughters’ has been a non-profit since 1997 and received its 501 C-3 in 1998.  Many people are aware that in 2009 the founder of the organization, Curtis Benjamin, youngest daughter was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor that required immediate chemotherapy and radiation in Atlanta. During this time, all of Mr. Benjamin’s time and energy was solely dedicated to his daughter and family. After 2 1/2 years of battling this disease, Iliss Marie Benjamin died in 2011, one month before her 13th birthday."

With federal investigators reportedly still digging up dirt on Apollo Nida's accomplices, a judge has granted his request to delay his fraud trial. Lucky, ducky now he has more time to make club appearances before heading to the slammer

In court documents filed on February 10th the Real Housewives of Atlanta star asked permission to delay his trial until March. Apollo was to begin his trial this month, but he is seeking more time to go over the prosecution's case against him and likely decide whether or not he wants to accept a plea deal. The Judge granted his request.

This morning NeNe Leakes blew off a radio interview that she was supposed to give regarding Kenya Moore's charity event and the mess of misinformation that has been flying all over since the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta aired last week.  We now understand why she blew off Tom Joyner and his morning radio show – she got a better offer! 

NeNe shared that she's heading to The View this Friday morning to spill the tea and clear up the rumors out there.  Sherri Shepherd Tweeted, "NeNeLeakes comin by @theviewtv this Friday 2 clear up a few rumors & setting me straight on the drama #RHOA."  NeNe then Tweeted, "Packing my bags headed 2 The View 2 chat it up wit the ladies & my girl @SherriEShepherd Tea Time Tune n Friday morning".

I can't promise this will be the last Real Housewives of Atlanta story for the day, but we're hoping it is!  Barring any new developments, of course.

First up, NeNe Leakes was promoting yesterday that she'd be spilling tea on the Tom Joyner radio show this morning.  That was before all hell broke loose yesterday afternoon, I guess, because Mrs. Leakes was a no show this morning!   She did Tweet today, but not a word about why she decided not to do the interview and spill the tea she was promising.

On to other business.  Kenya Moore took another opportunity to explain her side of what went down leading up to and the night of her charity event.  She slams NeNe for her lies and her behavior, as expected.
