Apparently, NeNe declared “I’m divorced” on the Season 4 reunion, but that clip never aired. It’s no secret that at the end of last season, things weren’t looking very good for the couple. However, according so some sources, a reconciliation may be in the works for NeNe and Gregg.
There’s room for one more on next season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. With Sheree Whitfield bidding adieu to the show that made her “who gon’ check me, Boo” famous, who will step in to fill her over-spending Louboutins? Some cast members are hoping the newest lady who lashes out lunches will be the feisty, label lovin’ Marlo Hampton who got her fair share of air time this season.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cynthia Bailey shares, “I think Marlo is definitely very entertaining for the show.” Entertaining…a menace to society…same difference, right?
“I like shooting with her just in terms of Marlo as a cast mate,” Cynthia elaborates. “Whenever she’s in the equation, things always take a different turn than what they thought it was going to be. So, Marlo would be really, really great to throw into the mix and see what’s going to happen. Things usually are always a little different when she is around. I can honestly say that South Africa would not have been the same if Marlo Hampton had not come on that trip.” I’d say that is a fair assertion on ol’ Cindy’s part. The South African trip probably would have highlighted more of South Africa and less of Marlo and Sheree’s screaming fits had Marlo not been in attendance.
Alright, I hate to break it to you wonderful readers, but this is going to be a brief-cap. As you well know, Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered last night, and as this was the final segment of the three-part train wreck known as the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion and I think we’ve said all there is to say. So, let’s break down the important parts!
So, is Kandi Burruss a sugar mama? Marlo Hampton seems to think so! And not only that, but she seems to think it’s her business to announce to the world that Kandi’s man lives with her. Well, I mean that’s called being in a committed relationship, you know: getting serious, not paying for sex, moving in together, going on actual dates in public, marriage… But I guess an escort/mistress wouldn’t know that, would she?. Kandi seems to think telling people her man drives a Range Rover proves she’s not a sugar mama. Kandi, yeah, labels don’t mean anything – just ask Marlo!
Marlo apparently earns money from all her haters. They take up a We Hate Marlo collection and just give it to her to fund her “labels”? So – can you guys do that for me? I need some new clothes – preferably ones made by Louwee VooTAWN.
So, Cynthia Bailey spoke after Andy Cohen slipped her a note telling her to fire up those vocal chords or get fired! Apparently, no one can get over the fact that Cynthia acts differently with a friend than she does with her co-workers and acquaintances. Much to do was made over the fact that Cynthia changes her spots for stripes when she leaves the giraffes for the zebras. Well, I really don’t think it’s that odd to act differently around people you know well, but I guess that’s why I’m not on a reality show. Personally, I don’t find Cynthia to be fake or confrontational with anyone. Nevertheless, Cynthia leaps right on into a screaming match with Kim Zolciak about how fake she supposedly is and how as soon as she gets near NeNe Leakesshe grows a pair of ovaries.
Proving that she speaks her mind, Cynthia calls Kim out on being a mistress! Cause, you know, it is what it is… Kim claims that Big Poppa was legally separated and you can date when you are separated. Except, Big Poppa is STILL not divorced – that’s the part she conveniently left out!
Cynthia, Marlo, and Kandi have distracting hair, that was probably not the best choice for the given environment. They keep flipping it over their shoulders and playing with it while trying to scream at people.
Marlo said she made it rain in South Africa because she knew She by SheBroke needed some money. Kandi snarked that she collected all those wasted bills to give to her man. Burn!
Sheree‘s greatest arguments are revisited. Who gon’ check me boo reigns supreme in my mind. Kim’s wigs have really um… gotten much more voluminous, haven’t they? And much tackier and trashier. First season they looked cute-ish, albeit a little cheap and matted. Now they look well… really fake and super cheap. What happened? Too much microwaving. Apparently, Kim and Sheree’s friendship has managed to survive call girl comments and wig pulls, because they are genuine and Sheree has never hit below the belt. Never really hit below the belt? If my friend called me a “call girl” on national TV, I would be preeeetty furious.
Kim informs us that despite what she told us, NeNe doesn’t have a penis. Whew! Good think she cleared that up!
Andy is still desperate for NeNe and Kim to be BFF again and return this show to its former splendor. Look, Andy – we all want that, but they are both too egotistical and it’s not gonna work out. Sorry. NeNe and Kim discuss their friendship for the umpteenth time. Both ladies are happy in their respective lives and are supportive of each other. Humbleness still eludes NeNe.
NeNe reveals that she brought Sheree and Kim to the attention of the producers and apparently NeNe convinced producers to hire Sheree because they initially thought she was too boring. And apparently, NeNe is willing to help Sheree out again – but unfortunately she is playing for the wrong team. Nothing like a little blackmail! <> And here come the rumors that NeNe got She by SheFired, well, fired!
And that’s it! We’re done with another season of RHOA!
THOUGHTS ON THE FINAL PART OF THE REUNION? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT NEXT SEASON OR ARE YOU OVER THIS SHOW? WHO WILL QUIT FIRST: NENE OR KIM?
It’s with great sadness that I announce that tonight is Sheree Whitfiled‘s last appearance on Real Housewives of Atlanta. I know, I cried too. Not because I am Sheree’s only fan (which I very well may be), but because Sheree’s arrival on the reality television scene was golden, precious, and insane. I mean, she only has my favorite intro in Housewives history: “I like things that are elegint and soffisicated, just like me!” Priceless, amirite?
As an homage to the most delusional Housewife of the whole franchise, it is without further ado that I unleash She by SheBroke: A Retrospective. Let’s recap some of Sheree’s greatest moments, shall we?
Season one we met Sheree; then full of hubris and conviction. “Budget – what’s that?;” she quipped. Insisting that soon she would be getting a whopping seven figures in a divorce settlement from ex-husband Bob Whitfield. Remember when Sheree had a personal shopper come to her mansion, which was drifting into foreclosure as she spoke, to bring her shoes? Oh, how the mighty fall.
“A big problem men have is they’re intimidated by successful women,” She by SheDelusional explained while spending her paltry divorce settlement on dresses she couldn’t afford. “I’m fashion; I’m style!;” she exclaimed. It’s so very in vogue to be broke, you know! So, of course first comes ridiculous, then comes a fashion line!

Well, I knew this was going to be a lackluster season of Real Housewives of Atlanta when Bravo didn’t even bother to redo the infamous intros. And I was right. The season finale served us vibrators, gifts galore, and really nothing much–but it’s all over but the crying, aka the reunion; which is where the good stuff usually happens anyway.
Things started out with Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes furniture shopping; which quickly turned into therapy replete with a sofa long enough for even NeNe to lay down on. NeNe is looking for a sectional–and a second chance at love as she announces that she’s made her decision and is going through with her divorce. Maybe it wasn’t a storyline attempt to get a spin-off after all?
NeNe announces the end of her marriage is like a death–perhaps she can employ Phunerals by Phaedra for a burial service worth dying for! I see trumpets, top hats, and horse-drawn carriages in store for your marriage license, former Mrs. Leakes. NeNe knows Gregg will continue to be a wonderful father and friend–but sadly he must cease to remain a booty call.
And onto more TMI. Kandi Burruss receives her boxes of Bedroom Kandi products. Here comes Happiness and Joy. I’m scared… She and her Xscape days acidwash micro-mini (holy ’80s) get right to Skype-ing Suki about the new products. Kandi is planning a launch party and she wants to create an evening of pleasure for women. It will feature massages, hot men, and sex toys. I’m pretty sure that’s also called the AVN awards, but anyway.
Kandi lets us know she has been testing the wares and they are so successful at getting their point across, she hasn’t even gotten to vibrate to the music. Suki then announces the “clit-stick” is ready–and it’s waterproof. Kandi proves her freak number is a straight ten when she mentions she could take it on an airplane and no one would know she’s having a pleasure party in her pants. Remind me never to fly first class out of Atlanta for fear of sitting next to Ms. Mile High Self-Rub.
Moving on, Cynthia is also testing out her new products by hosting the first ever Bailey Agency Modeling search. It’s pretty much a low-budget, generic ANTM without Nigel Barker, The J‘s, or Tyra‘s spirited and impassioned speechesl. Lame. Cynthia excitedly finds a few girls which will get free entrance into her school of modeling. There she’ll them the art of being oblivious and how to marry a Papa Smurf all their own. Peter, who is coordinating everything in absence of Mal, shocks the pants off me when he actually stays for the whole event! Is this a new Peter? Turning over a new leaf? Good for him!
Kandi is also sampling models as she scouts attractive men to take off their shirts and administer massages at the Bedroom Kandi launch. Phaedra Parks and She by Shefired are assisting her with the arduous task of examining attractive men and sexually harassing them. Bravo loves them some rowdy women with raunchy senses of humor, don’t they? Phaedra is, of course, up to the task of examining donkey booties and suggests the men wear Speedos for the main event. Shockingly Kandi vetos that and it’s decided the men will wear pants with a lining to prevent any sort of protruding elements. Everybody knows the lining makes all the difference….

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, all the ladies conducted themselves with dignity and nobody got hurt. Kim finally convinced someone to marry her, and NeNe contemplated leaving Haterville behind for the wilds of Los Angeles – where no one is fake. Nope – not in the least! Oh, and Phaedra announced that her phuneral home was coming soon. Watch out Atlantians – you’re about to be buried with style.
Things begin with Cynthia and Kim meeting each other for lunch. If you said “say what?” you’re not the only one. But apparently, Cyn decided handling things like an adult was better than getting into a screaming match in a church parking lot, so she invited Kim to lunch to work out their differences.

Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta…There is so much going on that I don’t know where to start! If you had told me several seasons ago that Kim wouldn’t be with Big Poppa, Phaedra would be accused of being a criminal kingpin, and NeNe would be a legitimate actress on a television show, I would have died laughing. Looks like the joke is on me!
As you recall, Phaedra Park’s former friend Angela Stanton has promoted an e-book in collaboration with Vibe. Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil makes some pretty strong accusations regarding Phaedra being the mastermind behind a crime spree that landed both Angela and Apollo Nida in jail. Vibe.com shared a series of video interviews with Angela in conjunction with her book release. In one of the videos, she states that Apollo’s “brother” lied about the extent of Angela’s involvement, in an effort to take the heat off Phaedra.
Now Vibe is issuing a “clarification“–or what regular folks would call an “Oops!”–on Angela use of the term “brother.” The site back pedals, “In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband]. It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s ‘street brother’ in her book. The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.” I wonder how many other Oops clarifications the site will have to make in connection with this book. Tamara Tattles notes that the book, which was holding the 67th spot on Amazon upon its release, has now dropped to the 5,289th position.
NeNe Leakes seems to have a new biffle in the form of Glee creator Ryan Murphy. The Neenster has been honing her acting skills on the hit series, and it was just announced that she will be starring in Murphy’s latest pilot, The New Normal. The show centers around a gay couple and their surrogate, and NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky. It appears that the RHOA reality star may have found the perfect way to channel her dramatic personality!
NeNe recently tweeted a picture of her famous bestie, stating, “THE MAN that is changing my life 1 script @ a time Ryan Murphy.”
Adding another photo of her and Ryan for her followers, NeNe tweeted, “I gotta get that Emmy baby & this man is helping me make sure that happens.” Both of those photos are below.
NeNe’s former best friend/current nemesis Kim Zolciak also took to the twitterverse to defend herself when a follower called out her behavior towards former assistant Sweetie Hughes. After someone tweeted “RT @snooki I hate when people are mean to their assistants. Your not cool. responded, @throughmyeyes__ how about my former assistant/friend @sweetieHughes is one of my dearest closest friends soooo stfu!”
Mere minutes later, Kim gave quite a shout out to her friend, tweeting, “First vacation in a loooong time w/ out @sweetieHughes we already miss u!!! If u wanna come I got u ” A hilarious picture of Kim’s wigs on said vacation is also below!

Fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta have been disappointed by this season – even with the addition of Mugshot Marlo Hampton (that girl’s autobiography could easily be titled My Life In Mugshots: A History of Marlo Hampton’s Adventures With The Law)! While the season was lackluster – I blame NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak‘s never gonna be repaired friendship; the reunion was apparently out of control!
While, I do believe nothing could have topped last season’s horrendous Real Housewives of New Jersey showdown; RHOA made a solid effort to dismantle the reigning champion of shocking reunions and the fights were epic!
Since none of the ladies are actually friends anymore, they wasted no time in getting nasty and vitriolic. According to WetPaint, whose source was present at the taping of the event, “It was a whole day of fighting, yelling and accusation-throwing. Everyone was worn out by the time it wrapped.”
Things started getting heated with NeNe and Kim. NeNe shockingly announced “I’m divorced!;” when her former bestie tried to call her out for dating while married (who could forget the “Close your legs to married men,” argument?).
In other outrageous incidents, Sheree Whitfield and NeNe–who started out the season with a bang–went head-to-head in a screaming match. The two continued their heated debate over NeNe’s finances–she’s very rich, remember–and Sheree tried to throw NeNe off her guard by announcing that any money earned from appearing on Celebrity Apprentice goes straight to charity. NeNe checked that boo by announcing she’s richer than She by Shebroke she is spiritually rich!
Not surprising, was Marlo battled every last one of The Smalls! Marlo was only present for a limited segment of the reunion, but the woman came with a vengeance and refused to keep her comments to herself! “Marlo’s M.O. was obvious,” the source explains. “She wants desperately to become a Housewife, so she was trying to show the producers she could really bring it in terms of drama.”
“In her normal fashion, Marlo was throwing out accusations right and left,” the source reveals. “She picked fights with everyone except Nene and Cynthia [Bailey].”
“But she sunk really low when she went after Kandi [Burruss], making all sorts of mean accusations about Kandi’s sex life,” the source reports. “Kandi was livid. It looked like she wanted to throttle Marlo.”
Despite Marlo’s attempts to prove she’s relevant, producers still don’t seem to be biting. “No one thinks they’re going to offer her a bigger role, though,” the source asserts. “Fans don’t seem to like her.” Adding to the speculation that she will be a one-season extra, Marlo has only had one Bravo blog all season (despite being embroiled in plenty of hot drama) and has never made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
In other RHOA news, NeNe continues to conquer Hollywood! After a successful role on Glee as sassy swim coach Roz, NeNe has been offered a role in Ryan Murphy‘s newest comedy pilot, The New Normal about a blended family composed of a gay couple and their surrogate. NeNe will have a heavily recurring role as Rocky, according to Deadline.com.
The cast includes a whole host of stars, including David Lyons and Vampire Diaries’ Trent Ford. NeNe’s increasing emergence into the world of acting–you know, in shows where acting is supposed to happen vs. shows where the characters pretend to be real– has many questioning if this season is to be her last as a Housewife. NeNe has revealed that she has no interest in a spin-off for Bravo and she has been increasingly checked out of the action all season!
Finally, some gossip that’s–quite frankly–delicious, but not entirely reliable. MediaTakeOut is reporting that Sheree’s daughter, Tierra has eloped with long-time boyfriend Damon!
According to their source, while Damon was seen asking Sheree for permission AND planning the proposal, the two were more than ready to get engaged – and what we saw on camera was all an act! Remember, Damon told Sheree he had already spoken to Bob Whitfield about asking for Tierra’s hand in marriage!
Unfortunately, the brief time he spent planning with Sheree scared the crap out of him and Damon started to get cold feet. He reportedly believed Tierra may have some secret gold digging ways of her own that had been kept in hiding all these years.
Apparently, the couple worked past their issues, and allegedly ELOPED last moth. Without inviting Sheree to the wedding – or letting her know of their plans! Bravo is reportedly furious at the turn of events, as they were planning to film the wedding and were promised the access. They’re now trying to recreate the wedding to fabricate a storyline.
I find that last part dubious, as filming has already ended for this season (unless they were trying to throw the wedding scene in last-minute, as they did with Pandora Todd‘s nuptials) and season five contracts have definitely not been signed. Many rumors have circulated that this will be Sheree’s last season with the show as she pretty much has nothing to offer. Perhaps Tierra’s wedding was a last-ditch effort to grab producer’s attention so she would have a storyline next season.
We’ll keep you posted on the updates concerning Tierra and Damon! Sheree has not commented on the news, yet!
ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE REUNION? DO YOU EXPECT TO SEE MARLO BACK NEXT SEASON? SURPRISED BY THE NEWS OF TIERRA AND DAMON’S ALLEGED ELOPEMENT – DO YOU BELIEVE IT?
