Kandi Burruss celebrated her 40th birthday with a party full of her besties this week. Unfortunately, Kandi’s birthday week also fell in the middle of some other momentous occasions – 1: The birthday of Ayden Nida; 2: the Bravo Upfronts, which meant several of Kandi’s fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars were unable to attend.
Kandi didn’t seem to mind sharing her birthday. She was happy to celebrate with her ride or dies who threw her a surprise birthday dinner and accept the copious social media shout-outs she got from friends and frienemies alike.
Kandi’s consolation prize also included Sheree Whitfield in attendance at her party – and a little bit of She By SheBroke makes everything better, right?! (I seriously LOVE Sheree!).
Last night the reality stars converged in West Hollywood to celebrate with OK! Magazine’s So Sexy LA party. Stars from Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Teen Mom and more turned out for the event.
Shahs stars GG Gharachedaghi, Shervin, and MJ Javid were in attendance, but MJ’s fiance Tommy Feight sat this one out. GG got into the spirit of the event, wearing her best OK! pink bra under a somewhat see-through black dress.
Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham smooched her on-again/off-again boyfriend Simon as she posed for pics.
AlthoughJax Taylor wasn’t photographed on the pink carpet, he was headed to the event, which was also attended by his co-starsJames Kennedyand Lala Kent. The show just started filming the new season yesterday and Jax had some choice words for James ahead of the event, “If I don’t kill that piece of sh$t tonight, he should play the lottery.” So, clearly James is still pushing every last button of Jax’s. 😉
NeNe Leakes is one of those reality stars who really thinks that she is above it all. Even though she really has not had success significant enough to shirk off the “reality star” label, NeNe still thinks she is the biggest star on the planet. As such, she has thrown her hat in the ring to give a shot at every entertainment career possible.
So what’s NeNe’s latest job that she’s trying out? Stand up comedy. Sure, she can throw good shade and read a bitch when she’s angry, but I’m not sure if that translates to her being a stand up comedian. And I’m not the only one who is questioning her latest career move. Comedian Luenell recently put NeNe on blast.
Tonight’s guests on Watch What Happens Live were The Goldbergs star Wendi McLendon-Covey and Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKenya Moore. Sadly, Kenya was on her best behavior tonight. We need a new season to get going so she kicks up the tea spilling into high gear!
Kenya starts off by confirms that she and Matt are still going strong and he’s in the audience tonight. Andy shows a photo of Moore Manor and she confirms that she’s moved in – and that Sheree Whitfield has not moved into Chateau Sheree, so she wins the bet. Kenya gives Sheree credit, though, saying that it’s “coming along” and that it’s three times the size of Moore Manor, so obviously it’ll take a little longer.
I completely understand that Kim had to take care of herself and focus on her sobriety and other personal matters, but she did take part in a reality show on Lifetime – Mother/Daughter Experiment – which makes me think that reality TV is not out of the question in a more general sense. With that said, there are plenty of reasons why RHOBH needs Kim back on the show.
Truthfully, I didn’t think they would end up moving forward with the notion just because I have no idea how they would have the time. Case in point: Kandi’s Instagram bio says, “I have too much going on to put in this bio.” But these two are proving to be superhuman business owners (yet again) and are moving forward with the restaurant process. They recently completed another aspect of this process and Kandi shared the good news on her Instagram page.
NeNe Leakes was invited to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner – and she was front and center for the pre-parties, the after-parties and the dinner itself. We have all of wardrobe changes in the gallery below.
