This is a long one kiddos, so settle in. There's a bevy of news about the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta which is finding itself in a bit of a hot mess. We've been sitting on this and combing through the info so prepare yourself for a read-thru.
Last week Cynthia Bailey hosted some charity fitness event called The Bailey Bowl. According to FreddyO.com the event was filmed for RHOA – and all the ladies were in attendance. It's interesting that they are still filming considering the season airs in less than a month. Bravo still hasn't released the official cast photos yet, which brings us to the issue at hand…
Attending the event was also former RHOA extra Marlo Hampton, previously fired for being too scandalous and too criminally cultivated. Marlo staged a return to Bravo on NeNe Leakes wedding spinoff I Dream Of NeNe. The show has been popular and rumors are swirling that Bravo is making some last-minute cast changes to RHOA. Meaning MARLO is being re-introduced to the show.
If any of y'all are watching I Dream of NeNe (and I don't get the feeling that many of you are), you know that NeNe Leakes' ego takes center stage and is second to not much else. Now, I like the Neenster, but Bravo may have put too many eggs in one basket by making this a season-long series. There's just not that much to it.
So, leave it to NeNe (another potential spin-off title?) to start drumming up the press for the sixth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe is a promoter at heart, and she knows who butters her bread. She's no doubt happy to generate some Bravo buzz about the next RHOA go-round, which, by the way, starts a month from today on November 3rd!
Last night NeNe Leakes dealt with "bridesmaid-zillas" (which have previously only been seen on Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids!). Without Randy to steer her in the right direction and keep these maids in line, full-scale mayhem erupted as only could happen on a reality show. Bless you Bravo!
The I Dream Of NeNe star confessed keeping all her ladies controlled and choosing who would be there with her on the big day was a definite challenge!
"It's really hard for me to step in between them because we are all friends," NeNe told OK! Magazine. "If I say something to one, the other one says I’m taking sides. So that was really hard for me."
Of course, NeNe didn't expect any aspect of wedding planning to be easy. But everything from choosing bridesmaids gowns to dealing with wedding planners was a challenge!
You know, I am not sure I'll ever get a handle on Real Housewives of New York'sAviva Drescher. When she first joined the cast, I thought she was quiet and would likely stay in the background (a first for the Bravo franchise, I believed at the time). Then she became a ball full of phobias. Next, Aviva decided that she'd found her voice, and she promptly used it, fiercely, on anyone who would listen. And don't even get me started about her dad.
Now, Aviva is promoting her new book and the upcoming season of RHONY (I mean, is there really any point in them coming back at this point?). She's teasing that there will be craziness, and she even compares the franchise to that of Real Housewives of Atlanta and RHONJ. In the words of the great Cher Horowitz…As if!
Last season Porsha Stewart's storyline was all about being the perfect wife. And this season it's all about getting divorced from her former king, Kordell Stewart.
Kordell filed for a wham-bam-thankyou-mam divorce shortly before last season's Real Housewives of Atlanta stopped airing. Reportedly one major point in contention in their relationship was Porsha's desire to continue with the show that made both of them look bad when he wanted her to return to the wifey role! Can't keep a wannabe fameho down, Kontroll!
Since then the two have been bickering majorly and splashing it all over the media! In the recent promo for this season's RHOA (seen below!), Porsha comments that their marriage was strained and hints that the rumors that Kordell may be 'on the down low' are true. "Kordell didn't necessarily want me physically," Porsha is quoted as saying. "And that made me wonder, what does he want?"
She may be Krayonce, but Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKenya Moore is no dog abandoner! The crazy-eyed reality star is twirling mad after someone allegedly spread a rumor that she left her pooch behind when she had to move (read: she totally blames her former landlord for the false doggy gossip!).
Not only is Kim Zolciak the queen of all things wigs and married men, the Don't Be Tardy star also laughs in the face of the Surgeon General's warning wants to add author to her resume. Of course she does…she is, after all, a product of Bravo!
Like many Housewives before her, Kim is wading into the book-writing pool. Having already come up with her own line of faux hair and given the fact she's bottled her signature bubbly beverage, it was the most logical next step, right?
It's like Gone With the Wind Weave! The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta seem to have the same money-making plans in mind…perhaps they are taking a page from the playbook of former co-star "Close your legs to married men, WIG!" Kim Zolciak!
Not only has Porsha Stewart announced a new faux hair line called "Naked," now everyone's favorite one-upper has jumped into the hair-product-world-launching-gig (it's a real thing!) as well. You know that Kenya Moore is all about stealing some thunder–and some spotlight! Team Twirl, y'all!
