Claudia Jordan was spotted filming with Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey at the opening of Sports One in Charlotte, NC last week. “Bravo crew came out, Kenya, new girl Claudia, my wife, Kordell [Stewart]. We shot at the bar last night until 2 in the morning,” Peterrevealed. “The two new girls are extremely beautiful, so there was a lot of chemistry in the house.”
The other potential newbie is Demetria McKinney, a singer and philanthropist and serious fashion-lover of the Marlo-vein (meaning over-the-top glam and big labels). Claudia, a former Miss Rhode Island, also competed in the Miss USA pageant and presently is a DJ for DishNetwork’s Rickey Smiley Show, where coincidentally Porsha Stewart also works.
After months of guest hosting, Porsha was just named a permanent co-host on the entertainment magazine television program, Dish Nation. On the morning show, Porsha is tasked with reporting on breaking celebrity news and gossip. Something Porsha is quite familiar with.
Last season things were rough for NeNe, who battled with Kenya Moore and lost her friendship to Cynthia Bailey. Still NeNe reveals that despite the negativity she’s returning to the show to use it for the amazing opportunities it presents. And she’s also giving an inside scoop on the inner workings of the show, the cast relationships, and whether or not Phaedra Parks will be back!
“Every single season, somehow people think I’m not coming back. Somehow, I’m the only one who people ask, ‘Is she coming back or not?’ But I think that people don’t understand it’s not really our choice like that,” NeNe explains. “When I signed on for season 1, I signed on for a number of seasons. We’re like actors, we sign for a number of seasons and they’re either going to pick you up at the end of the season or drop you, unless you finish out your contract. So I have obligations. It’s not like I can just walk away from something like it’s just that easy, it’s really not.”
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?
