New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
NeNe, who likes to keep viewers guessing about whether she will return to RHOA or not each season, tweeted recently that “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree [Whitfield] & I think Kim Z.”
There were also rumors that Kim Zolciak might step back in as a cast member, but I don’t get why she would do that. Don’t Be Tardy seems like a way easier show to do. Unless of course, the money was better. And then there’s other original RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield. She did return last season as a part time cast member, but that was not enough for me. I need the original ladies back on my show, but is it going to happen? NeNe shared the latest with her followers on Twitter.
In our post-Labor Day Weekend photo gallery, we have a handful of celebs spotted out and about.Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker attended the 2016 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta. Thoughts on Kandi’s look here? Seems a little Phaedra-inspired, no?
We also have pics of Kim Kardashian and daughter North twinning in silver dresses ahead of the Kanye West concert in NYC. And we have photos of Bethenny Frankel from last month when she attended that Coldplay concert and reportedly got a little feisty.
A slew of reality stars attended the MTV VMAs last night: Farrah Abraham (in an interesting red carpet look…), pregnantJenelle Evans, Snooki & Jwoww, and more. Did you tune in for the show last night? When I heard they were giving Kanye West several minutes to do and say whatever he wanted, I decided to pass on that ranty mess. I heard Beyonce was phenomenal.
Instead of pleading the fifth in regard to the tax lien story that’s been circulating about her, NeNe Leakes took to Twitter to make fun of the accusations. NeNe does not seem to be back down from her self-declared “I’m rich, bitch” stance.
In typical NeNe fashion, she circles around the accusations that she owes over $824K in back taxes from 2014. She doesn’t actually deny that she owes the money. Instead, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star just denies that she is broke. Just because NeNe may or may not owe the government money, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have some other cash to spare. So I’m willing to bet that there’s some truth to this story since she did not outright deny the story with her tweets.
It is typically so difficult to get the cast members in any Real Housewives franchise to come together for any reason, especially the strong willed women on Real Housewives of Atlanta. So I’m honestly pretty surprised to hear that all of the women from Real Housewives of Atlanta are uniting, well except for NeNe Leakes and the one season wonder Kim Fields, but that’s pretty much expected.
