Kandi showed off Todd’s new toy on Instagram. She shared, “Happy Birthday to my love @todd167!!!!! I love you babe! His bday is Monday August 4th but we’re celebrating all weekend! #stingray #corvette #MadeInTheUSA #HeLovesHisGift I’m a good wife!”
It’s a generous gift and one that will probably send Mama Joyce into a tizzy over! Crossing my fingers that the cameras were rolling for it!
TELL US – IS KANDI BEING OVERLY GENEROUS? WHAT WILL MAMA JOYCE HAVE TO SAY? AND…HOW JEALOUS WILL PETER THOMAS BE!?
Oh my… Real Housewives of Atlanta is turning into the new Real Housewives of New Jersey. Meaning what is happening behind-the-scenes is far more juicy than what’s happening on camera!
With Apollo Nida heading to prison, it seems he and Phaedra Parks are getting divorced. Rumors have cropped up that the couple is living apart and Apollo hasn’t been seen at their home in months. RHOA producers are filming Apollo until he relocates to the Big House, but he and Phaedra are barely interacting – in fact a previous report spotted them only coming together for their sons and having a terse conversation!
Now comes a new report that states Phaedra is refusing to film with Apollo – and even skipped a recent RHOA event to avoid him. This tea is piping hot and sweet like molasses so settle in! It’s been rumored that Phaedra is ‘taking a break’ from filming this season as she sorts out her affairs, but that’s not true – what Phaedra is actually breaking from is putting her marriage and drama with her soon-to-be-ex-husband on TV.
Earlier we showed you pictures from NeNe Leakes in Zumanity – the press preview of the show. Just a few days later was the official opening night and we somehow missed the photos! Better late than never, though!
Here is the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, looking like she’s having the time of her life (as the center of attention, duh) with the cast of the Vegas show. The one thing I noticed through each photo is that NeNe seems very much in her element and truly full of joy. Or she’s scared to death and hiding it really well. One of the two.
Maybe this gave NeNe the itch for Broadway? She’s rumored to be up for a role sometime soon. Could you see NeNe leaving reality TV and heading to the stage instead? Or would she try to juggle both?
Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin was also spotted… for reasons unknown. I have a feeling Jill sniffed out reality stars in Vegas, popped a squat, and hoped someone would pose for pictures with her. Oh Jill…
The event at Caesars Palace paired each of the housewives with a high roller from the casino for silly games. One game was walking on a runway. Of course, Kenya‘s no stranger to a runway, but she got ahead of herself and took a major spill. There are no words to describe what she did next! See video of Kenya’s fall and snapshots of the Bravolebrities below.
Now comes a report that Peter filed for bankruptcy and was borrowing money, again, from wife Cynthia Bailey to keep his business afloat. A report reveals that in 2013, Peter, via BarOne, filed for bankruptcy owing over $322,000k to various creditors including the IRS and his wife! At that time Peter claimed BarOne’s assets were only $61,000k.
According to documents, Bar One filed for Chapter 11, which would expunge their debts. Listed as creditors are $32,000 owed to the IRS, $118,000 to the State of Georgia for taxes, a slew of other debts, and a whopping $60,000 owed to Peter, himself, for personal monies he investing in the business and was using to cover its operating costs.
Apollo Nida was giving yet another interview – this time to Be100 – and, as always, didn’t hold anything back. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star drops a few shocking drops of tea. His restitution initially started at $14 million. He doesn’t think his marriage to Phaedra Parks will survive. And he says there were others involved in the fraud dealings, but he took the brunt of the fall.
When asked how the sentencing has affected his family life, Apollo says “It’s hell. Hell on wheels. I’ve asked god to forgive me. I’ve forgiven myself. I had to move on. From there I just had to bite down, I was going through so much. It doesn’t make you less of a man to cry and shed tears. I’ve shed tears. I’m just upset at how I was raised and to possibly be taking my son through the same thing. But by the grace of God he’s still young and we have many years ahead of us. I just can’t make those same mistakes. It’s all on me.”
He continues, “a lot of people could be held accountable, but at the end of the day, it’s over with now. We’ll pay back the $1.9 million and keep going. By the grace of God I was able to get that down. It [restitution] was $14 million.”
NeNe Leakes, the proud owner of many Birkins, decided to get personal with hers! NeNe did the work herself to make a homemade graffiti bag featuring several of her most noteworthy “nene-isms.” Birkin Goes Bloop, anyone?!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is producing her own fashion line, so it only makes sense that she puts her stamp on her Hermés, right? WRONG! If she is using this bag to advertise her fashion line, that makes me want to buy her clothes even less!
