RHOA


NeNe Leakes has been quite mysterious about her love life on the Tweets lately. She posted a series of pics featuring very flashy gifts “he” gave her and is not giving away who “he” is. NeNe Tweeted: “Diamonds r a girls best friend & they just keep comin & comin & comin.”

Rumors have been circulating for months that The NeNe has been dating Famous Famiglia owner John Kolaj after NeNe opened her own franchise of the restaurant earlier this year and has been spotted out and about with the businessman. Is NeNe dating John or are they merely very friendly business associates?

Perhaps yes, but neither one of them is willing to give anything away. John recently admitted to WetPaint that he was indeed the giver of NeNe’s many gifts — including a Hermes Birkin, some Louboutins and some serious diamonds. “Absolutely, I gave her that ring! It’s 8 carats. I gave her a set of diamond earrings, too,” John readily enthused. As for the Louboutins, John added that yes, “I got her a few pairs.”

As for why John is showering NeNe with gifts that make any woman melt, John explains, “Nene Leakes is a smart, amazing woman who is a dear friend of mine, and I hope she’s in my life for a very, very long time.” However, when asked if he was dating NeNe, John merely replied “no comment.”

NeNe also played coy as to the nature of her relationship with John, telling Us Weekly, “He’s been flirting with me.” But the Glee star did seem to admit that they have some sort of relationship, telling the mag: “I’m not saying he’s The One, but he has a lot of the qualities I’m looking for.” And what might those qualities be? According to NeNe, “He’s very wealthy!”

NeNe has yet to file for divorce from husband Gregg Leakes, who she has been seen with around town recently. NeNe has repeatedly stated the divorce is happening, but their relationship remains amicable. NeNe is technically separated from her husband and who knows if she will go through with the actual divorce! In the meantime she’s been paling around with John.

So, who is John? He is a successful businessman who grew up in the Bronx and opened a chain of Italian fast food restaurants with his brothers. They now own over 140 franchises — including one NeNe opened last year. Viewers first saw John on an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta when NeNe went on a cringe-inducing business lunch with the very over-the-top John. NeNe seemed mortified, disgusted, intrigued and then she said she liked him! A photo of NeNe and John out on the town is below.

Well, John promises that won’t be the last of him on the show. “I think I’m in three or four more episodes,” he reveals. “I’m not getting paid, and I’m not interested in the fame. I just feel lucky and blessed to be spending time with NeNe.” Oh, my…

And if you’re wondering what NeNe did for NYE — she apparently celebrated in Miami at P.Diddy‘s infamous bash! Diddy has made no secret of his NeNe love and demonstrated his affections by inviting her to his huge celeb-studded fete. Also in attendance were Rhianna, Vivica A. Fox, and Queen Latifah. NeNe confirmed her attendance, tweeting: “As I ring n the New Year wit my boy @iamdiddy @ his home! I’m so Blessed! Happy New Year 2 all”

According to Tamra Tattles, NeNe showed up dateless, but looked cute. A photo of NeNe at the bash is below. Wow — maybe the other ladies do have a reason to be jealous of NeNe’s success!

IS NENE DATING JOHN OR IS THIS A PUBLICITY STUNT? CAN YOU BELIEVE NENE WAS INVITED TO P.DIDDY’S NEW YEARS BASH?

Man, I’ve missed Real Housewives of Atlanta while they’ve been on Holiday Hiatus. Come back to me soon crazies! In the meantime we’ll all have to console ourselves with some Atlanta gossip!

Sheree Whitfield has taken time out of her busy schedule of arguing with Bob Whitfield and lying about building Chateau Sheree to talk dating and her clothing line with Madame Noire! And Cynthia Bailey recently landed the cover of Denim Magazine looking amazing, where she also gave an impassioned testimonial about her friendship with NeNe Leakes!

Sheree’s sit down Madam Noire was all about the gossip surrounding the Housewife. According to Sheree, anytime she is seen with a guy there are rumors she is dating him — most recently Kermit Quinn from Blackstreet who she says is actually just a “good friend.” Poor Sheree complains that she “can’t even be seen with guys!”

There is one man she would like to be seen with though — the recently separated Kobe Bryant who she calls her “celebrity crush!” Oh, lord Kobe hide your wallet watch out! Sheree said she’s liked him because he seemed like a “great guy” and she fell for all his nonsense about respecting marriage, sadly she met him once and was so nervous she “clammed up.”

When asked which of her co-stars she would like to be stranded on a desert island with, Sheree says it would definitely be Phaedra Parks or Kim Zolciak because both of them are “funny as hell.” She also thinks Phaedra has a “good head on her shoulders” and the Southern Belle would be able to come up with shelter, etc for the stranded ladies. Sheree certainly didn’t feel so confident about Phaedra’s abilities when she was her lawyer!

As for her now shuttered clothing line, She by Sheree, Sheree promises it’s not dead yet! “She by Sheree got very, very expensive and I put a lot of my money into it. It is my passion, I love fashion,” she explains. Yet the company is moving in a different direction. “I’m actually in talks with a couple different people on bringing it back as a fitness apparel line. She by Sheree fitness with a DVD, kinda moving into the whole health and fitness arena.” I actually think this would be perfect for Sheree and I hope she does this!

Sheree tells us one of the unfortunate things about being a Housewife is dating! “Guys, when we go on a date — I don’t wanna talk about the show the entire date. I don’t wanna talk about those girls!”

“If you’re trying to date me, court me,” Sheree warns. “Let me know that you’re interested in me, not the girl you see on the show.” I agree – because the girl we see on the show can sometimes make a pretty bad impression — and that goes for ALLLL the ladies of Housewives.

“And of course, there’s no dates in Atlanta so I have to get it in when I travel,” Sheree complains, adding that it’s really tough balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship with dating. “I haven’t found anybody special, but I do try to, you know, meet different people.”

Another drawback to being on RHOA is that people always think they know you based on what they see on TV. Sheree says she always tries to “steer the conversation” in another direction and avoid discussing what viewers think they know about her life based on a television show. Is this Sheree admitting that storylines are fabricated?

Hopefully things will move in a more positive direction for Sheree in 2012. It was actually a great interview and surprisingly NeNe wasn’t mentioned once!

Speaking of NeNe, Cynthia recently talked her friendship with the infamous Ms. Leakes in an interview with Denim Magazine. Cynthia was on the cover looking insanely gorgeous. That cover is below. She had this to say about NeNe:

“NeNe and I are friends on & off the show. She has shown me nothing but love and loyalty. We connect because we are both strong and independent. There is zero jealousy and zero insecurity. We lift each other when we are down, and applaud each other when we are up.I love NeNe because she owns who she is, and I respect that.”

Not only does Cynthia love her some NeNe, Peter Thomas does as well! “My Husband and NeNe also connect for the same reasons. Peter and NeNe are both straight shooters, and always keep it real. They are friends because they say what they mean and never apologize for being themselves. I love both for that.”

Interestingly enough MediaTakeOut is reporting that NeNe and Peter were once more than friends! According to one of their “trusted” sources, who is a former colleague of Peter’s, they used to be an item a few years ago!

“This was BEFORE he met Cynthia,” the insider discloses. “Peter was a ladies man and dated a lot of women, NeNe was one of many… it wasn’t serious.” No word if this relationship happened before NeNe was married to Gregg?

Even worse, Cynthia has no idea about their past involvement! “Peter is not one of those KISS AND TELL guys, I’m sure he never told Cynthia.” But what of her good friend NeNe — Does she owe it to Cynthia to fess up? Poor Cynthia if this is true.

THOUGHTS ON SHEREE’S INTERVIEW – IS SHE BY SHEREE FITNESS A GOOD IDEA? WHAT ABOUT CYNTHIA’S COMMENTS ABOUT HER FRIENDSHIP WITH NENE? DO YOU BELIEVE NENE AND PETER USED TO DATE?

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is delivering some unbeweavable news — she recently announced she is “over” drama and her priorities have totally changed in recent months since avoiding NeNe Leakes getting married to Kroy Biermann and having her third child, KJ.

“Having a new baby changes you,” Kim told PEOPLE. “Watching this season, I feel like you can just see how happy I am on my face – I don’t even have to say anything.” And this season Kim is happy to have her life on film, “I’m grateful to have all this captured on camera.”

Kim admits that past seasons were hard to watch due to the non-stop confrontations and drama surrounding her, but now that she is in a different place with a different focus she doesn’t cringe at all. Not even when we see her carting around a couple dozen wigs she treats like children? “I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I’d be like, ‘Oh, god,’ ” Kim confesses. “And now, this season … it’s been incredible … I wasn’t involved with the drama.”

“I absolutely have no regrets, but this season is a lot easier for me to watch,” she reveals. “Last year I was caught up in drama and trying to do that bus tour. And it’s hard to watch.”

“You live it, and then six months later, you watch it on TV,” Kim explains of how reality TV works. “So this season, there aren’t any moments where I’m in a position where I’m going to cover my eyes.”

Kim is equally excited about the new year and the premiere of her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding. So what’s her New Year’s Resolution? “To get more for sleep.” Darn, I was hoping it’d be something along the lines of start more drama or that her wigs would get their own spin-off. At least it’s not to produce another song!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? IS KIM CAPABLE OF AVOIDING DRAMA OR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL SHE GETS SWEPT BACK IN? ARE YOU LIKING THE LESS CRAZY KIM THIS SEASON?

On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint.  Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.

The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD?  (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

Kim Zolciak has made a lot of changes since the first seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Hearkening back to the good ol’ days before she was NeNe Leakes‘ mortal enemy, married instead of a mistress, chain smoking and merely a wannabe singer, it’s shocking how much things have changed for the beweaved one. Well, maybe the wannabe singer part hasn’t changed — she still wants to be able to sing, but instead has settled for merely recording some seriously Autotuned pop songs. Ahhh… Kim what must it be like to be you?

Kim spent some time in Chicago this weekend with her new hubs Kroy Biermann and speaking to the Windy City Times, she talks about all the changes that have happened in her life.

Kim is apparently still annoyed over the “definite drama” at her babyshower because of co-star Cynthia Bailey and is still a little bit pissed about Peter Thomas‘ comments to Uptown Magazine. “I didn’t lose anything at the end of the day because Peter and Cynthia didn’t show up until 15 minutes before it was over, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. It was rude and uncalled for, you know what I am saying?”

“I don’t even know Peter. I don’t spend a lot of time with Cynthia and only know the stories that I hear. Everyone has an opinion but if you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say it at all kind of thing, especially when it is about your wife’s cast members…” Oh the travesties of being a Housewife — you get talked about all the time.

Kim would rather focus on her fabulous married life, calling it “fantastic;” and the happy couple is finally settling into things after their lavish wedding. Kim explains they are considering her trip to Chicago for an appearance a “little honeymoon.” ” I haven’t had the time to enjoy because I have been working a lot. I am happy, and Kroy is such a great guy.”

And Kim is very excited about her new spin-off Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which chronicles preparing for her 11-11-11 nuptials, but she can’t give away any details.

Adding that she is so grateful she decided to go and support Sheree Whitfield‘s charity event last season where she met Kroy. “I met him on the show last year for real,” Kim explains. “I always say I am so grateful. I didn’t even want to go to that even that day and had a lot going on then. I went to support Shereé and never would have thought in a million years that I would have met my husband there.”

Speaking of NeNe, her former bestie, Kim is officially over it. “I am at a different place in my life. I wish her well and much success. I am very focused on my family and my husband. That is what I have going on, and I don’t have time for the negativity anymore or the drama.”

Kim is giving credit where credit is due and admitting that NeNe is the reason she was casted on Housewives. “She is the one that introduced me to the producers or what have you,” Kim reveals. “I will always be thankful for that. It has been an incredible journey over all of these years. But she has some anger issues that she needs to deal with…”

In other NeNe news, Tamara Tattles is reporting that the rowdy one, who is currently filming a guest spot on hit TV show Glee, may land a permanent role on series. Then, she’ll be cashing Fox checks!

NeNe apparently filmed a second episode for the series last week, slated to be a Michael Jackson Tribute episode and proving that she is actually in the episodes, NeNe is included in the upcoming Glee promo. NeNe’s role will be that of swim teacher Roz Washington and apparently she is having so much fun filming in LA that she may be heading back there following the cast-wide Christmas break to continue filming more episodes! Something tells me acting might be a natural segue for the overly dramatic Ms. Leakes!

Her first Glee episode is slated to air on January 17, 2012. Her second episode will be airing on Jan 24th. A photo of The Neen on set is below.

Finally, a new episode of RHOA airs tonight on Bravo and Phaedra and Sheree face off over Sheree’s supposed legal representation by Ms. Parks. Good thing Phaedra isn’t really her lawyer! Also on tonight’s episode, Kim and her family move into their new dream house and Cynthia hosts her grand opening for The Bailey Agency, which leads to Kim and NeNe being in the same place at the same time for the first time this season.

A preview clip of the new episode is below in which Sheree confronts Phaedra over her courtroom drama! RHOA airs tonight on Bravo at 9/1oc.

Sheree Whitfield‘s custody case is the hot story to keep her relevant this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree is accusing her ex-husband, retired NFL player Bob Whitfield (a.k.a. Head Butt Bob), of refusing to pay child support and owing hundreds of thousands in back child support over four years. Many have found it odd that Bob would allow his deadbeat dad behavior to be flaunted on national television and, as is always the case, there seems to be much, much more to the story than meets the eye!

On the surface Sheree’s case seems cut and dry so her attorney, friend and co-star Phaedra Parks opted to take on the case pro-bono. When Phaedra suggested Sheree simply alert the authorities to Bob’s negligence, Sheree looked squeamish and immediately vetoed that idea, leaving many — including her attorney — perplexed. Sheree claimed she would not feel right putting the father of her children in jail. But is that really the reason she didn’t want Bob to hear that “clank-clank”?

Interestingly, last episode Phaedra decided to charge Sheree a $5000 retainer fee, claiming that her case became more challenging which would necessitate a lot more work on her part. Also interesting, Bob filed a motion against Sheree placing her in contempt for allegedly stealing furniture that was granted to him in the divorce decree. And that is just the tippity, tip, tip of the iceberg!

There has looong been the rumor that Sheree basically stripped the mansion she and Bob resided in during their marriage of all it’s fixtures after Bob allowed it to fall into foreclosure and Sheree plus children were evicted. Tamara Tattles gave an in-depth report of the situation on her blog which, is the first red flag in the complicated case of Sheree Whitfield vs. Bob Whitfield and the mystery of the child support case.

First, in an odd sequence of information that doesn’t add up, StraightFromTheA discovered that Phaedra is no longer representing Sheree according to the Fulton County Court Modification documents. Was it because she couldn’t afford her rates? The defendant’s lawyer is clearly listed as Joy Nicol Hanyard. The real question is did Phaedra ever represent Sheree or was that added for dramatic purposes? Tamara Tattles has already alerted us that the presiding judge seen on last week’s episode of RHOA is not the actual judge whose courtroom was featured (nor the judge listed on this document). A copy of that document is below.

StraightFromTheA, an Atlanta blog known for getting the scoop, did more digging and found that the case between Sheree and Bob is absolutely 100% real and not created for RHOA — however the case that we are seeing played out on TV is very different than the behind the scenes situation. Apparently Bob is tired of being depicted as the miscreant father and first-rate a-hole. Speaking to the blog he is giving his side of the story!

Calling the situation a “hot mess”; he also takes issue with Phaedra claiming he looked a “hot mess” in court (is that the adjective of the week?)! Bob claims that ugly wrinkled shirt he wore in the court scene was actually a $300 Robert Graham shirt and he was not trying to look like a “hobo” but it was too hot for a suit and his iron was “so raggedy.” Yes, this man went to Stanford.

Bob also admits that sticking out his tongue makes him look like such a “smug bastard” and he also admits that he does, in fact, “know people” at the court as Sheree said. As for Sheree, Bob reveals, she doesn’t know “when the truth starts and when the lie begins.” He also comments on Chateau Thelma Sheree, wondering why she has that “mound of dirt.” The conversation is a little difficult to decipher, but if you don’t mind Bob’s filthy mouth, it’s worth a listen!

So what is the truth behind all the acrimony and the reason why Bob is refusing to pay his ex-wife court-ordered child support? According to MediaTakeOut, Sheree actually owes Bob a butt load of dollars! After sifting through some court documents, here’s what they discovered: “When Sheree and Bob got divorced, the court ordered them to SELL the house, split the proceeds. And for Bob to give Sheree $425K in additional cash. Bob would pay her $25K up front, and the other $400K once they sold the house. Well Sheree TRICKED Bob, and asked him if he could give her the $400K early, so that she could get a home for their children.”

“And after Bob gave her the money, Sheree filed MULTIPLE lawsuits, and refused to leave the house or pay the mortgage. Eventually the bank foreclosed on the house, and Bob lost ALL the equity he had in the home.” Bob took Sheree to court over the matter and Sheree was “admonished,” yet not charge according to the court documents. Perhaps this is why she lost all of her appeals for spousal support? Sheree never paid Bob back for the money lost as a result of her refusal to honor the agreement. And that clears up why the house fell into foreclosure.

Essentially if Sheree attempts to take Bob to court for the lost child support, he can counter-sue for all the money he is owed. A copy of the court documents obtained by MediaTakeOut are below. Also, below is a photo of the home which Sheree was shown living in on the first and second season of RHOA.

Perhaps this is the real reason Sheree is not getting child support! Sheree has not commented on the reality of her situation on Twitter or her Bravo Blog!

THOUGHTS ON THE DETAILS REGARDING SHEREE’S LEGAL SITUATION? IS BOB RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT IN LIGHT OF ALL THE MONEY SHE ALLEGEDLY OWES HIM?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bob took Sheree to court, Phaedra got played by Bob, Kandi talked her new self-pleasure line and Kim struggled for her daughter to accept KJ.

Things begin with Phaedra and Sheree meeting to discuss Bob’s modification of child support. Phaedra explains it will be a very engrossing process with a lot of sorting through everyone’s business. Sheree is emotional because it is dealing with something very dear to her heart: her money, according to Phaedra. Sheree is still unwilling to put Dead Beat Head Butt Bob in jail for back child support, but Phaedra promises to be the diligent legal eagle and get her the justice she deserves!

In today’s surprise, a new episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be airing tonight on Bravo! But more on that below.

First, following Nene Leakes’ claims that she is “rich… very rich” due to the Trump checks she received from doing Celebrity Apprentice, it now appears she might have fibbed a lot little. A Bravo housewife fibbing? You don’t say!

“While you were running your mouth, I was running to the bank … depositing a Trump check!” NeNe claimed to Sheree Whitfield on the RHOA season opener adding, “I’m rich, bitch!” And to further prove her wealth to millions of strangers viewers, the Nene was seen looking at a $9 million dollar home in Miami.

However, Donald Trump Jr. is now speaking out against Nene’s claims, telling the Wetpaint blog that if the Nene is indeed rich or very rich rather, it is not due to any checks from his dad Donald Trump.

When asked about Nene’s claims of wealth via Donald, Trump Jr. told Wetpaint, “Honestly, I have no idea.” He continued, “All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it.”

Trump Jr. added: “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.” Ouch!

NENE LEAKES THREATENS TO QUIT RHOA IF SHE DOESN’T GET OWN SPINOFF!

So just how much did Nene earn on Celebrity Apprentice? Well that exact amount is unknown but Piers Morgan, who won the 1st season of the show back in 2008, revealed he and his castmates only received about $25,000 each to do the show. So perhaps that amount has since gone up to $9 million in a span of 3 years! Thus making the Nene very rich!

Nene has since backtracked on her “very rich” comments claiming she simply meant she was spiritually wealthy. Uh uh.

Meanwhile, the ratings for the 4th season of the RHOA continues to soar! With over 3.3 million viewers tuning in for Sunday’s episode, the series continues to remain the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise. In fact, the recent episode of RHOA was seen by 1.1 million more viewers than the still very impressive 2.2 million viewers that watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. It appears the RHOA ladies and their manufactured drama are here to stay!

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOA! Yes, Bravo has decided to air a new full-episode tonight.

On the 7th episode this season titled ‘Law By Sheree,‘ Shereé is served with legal papers, and turns to Phaedra for representation. The two confidently face Sheree’s ex in court, but to their dismay, he has a trick up his sleeve. Kim and Kroy bring baby KJ home and chaos erupts in the house. On an all-new episode of “Kandi Koated Nights,” Kandi chats with guests Marlo Hampton and baller boyfriend Charles Grant. One of Kandi’s co-hosts asks Charles what it was like to date NeNe and it doesn’t take long for the gossip to spread.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
