Sheree Whitfield

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3

Tonight is the night! That is the night the Real Housewives of Atlanta return for their long awaited 3rd season.

So what can we expect tonight? One word – DRAMA! Unlike the New Jersey Housewives’ second season, which we had to wait almost 9 episodes before the infamous country club scene, the Atlanta ladies bring the drama on the season premiere! Nene Leakes and Dwight Eubanks will almost come to blows tonight as Nene decides to confront Dwight on rumors he has been spreading about her husband Gregg. Rumors which include Gregg trying to borrow money from him.

Meanwhile, the other housewives read about Kim Zolciak’s article in Life&Style magazine, during which she comes out as a bisexual, and they all try to get the scoop on the real deal with Kim. Sheree Whitfield decides she now wants to act following the failure demise of her She By Sheree fashion line. Kandi Burruss tries to get back into the dating scene following the tragic death of her fiance last year. One of the new housewives, Phaedra Parks will also be introduced in tonight’s episode.


In other Atlanta news, new housewife Phaedra Parks has found herself in the media headlines since the February announcement of her addition to the show. The reason? The Atlanta Entertainment Attorney just happens to be married to an ex-con named Apollo Nida.

Apollo, 31, was convicted in 2004 for racketeering. He was paroled last year in May 2009 after serving five out of his 18-year prison sentence. Phaedra and Apollo married late last year and the two recently welcomed a baby boy in July.

Phaedra, 38, defended Apollo and her decision to marry him in a recent statement. Part of that statement is below -

My husband was convicted of a white-collar crime. It was racketeering. He comes up for an appeal and we just hope that works out positively. But he wasn’t guilty of harming any person or anybody and unfortunately that’s what happened. I married my husband because I loved him and he loved me and I think that’s the foundation of any good relationship. I didn’t marry him because of his past or because of his future. I married him because I respected him and I realized⎯everyone should realize that people make mistakes.

I know who I am and I have a very good sense of my husband and what our relationship is built on. So at the end of the day I have to go home to him and so whomever you marry has to be your personal choice. And that has to be a choice that you’re willing to live with. I married him because I love him, not because somebody else loves him and has to live with him and deal with him every day⎯it’s because I do so if you can live with your decision then that’s all that matters.

UPDATE – Apollo’s mugshots have been added below.

Sheree Whitfield

Some bad news for Sheree Whitfield, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting today that Sheree, 39, owes two separate law firms more than $180,000 in divorce-related fees.

According to AJC, Sheree was first sued last year by attorney Steve Montalto for more than $87,000 in unpaid fees related to her divorce to ex-husband Bob Whitfield. The lawsuit has yet to be resolved.

Montalto says Sheree has “ignored and stonewalled any effort to respond to post-judgment discovery about her assets and income,” He has asked a judge to force her to respond and to threaten her with incarceration. “She thinks she’s above the law,” he said.

The next lawsuit was filed just days ago on June 10 by Weinstock & Scavo. The law firm began working with Sheree in 2007, and alleges she owes them $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce. Even worse, interest on the owed amount has mounted to $18,709.07.

This news doesn’t come as a big surprise as Sheree’s financial struggles has been well documented in the press.  She lost her home to foreclosure just last year.  Sheree has yet to comment on the lawsuits.

NENE LEAKES NOSE JOB

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes appeared on the Wendy Williams Show weeks ago much to rumblings that she had gotten a nose job. Well now there is photographic evidence.

The Atlanta housewife attended a Dancing Stars of Atlanta Benefit event Sunday night along with her fellow castmates and the photos tell it all. While Nene has yet to publicly comment on her plastic surgery, she looks noticeably different in the face. There are also rumblings that she had more than her nose done. You can see more photos of Nene below.

Nene who was in attendance with her husband Gregg despite separation rumors, was actually at the event to support her fellow housewife Sheree Whitfield, who danced at the charity event which raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Also in attendance were Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak’s wig, and new housewife Cynthia Bailey. Photos below are courtesy of FreddyO.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies have been rather busy lately. The good news is no evictions, foreclosures, or short sales have been reported for any of the housewives in almost a year.  And though a new housewife (reported to be Phaedra Parks) has been added to the mix for the third season, Lisa Wu Hartwell revealed exclusively to Hollywood life that no housewife will be leaving.

This is good news for Lisa, as she was heavily rumored to be the housewife getting the axe.  As for her feelings for the new housewife, Lisa has none as she revealed she doesn’t know the newest housewife.  Lisa also recently made her TV acting debut when she guest starred on the TBS sitcom – Meet The Browns on Monday.

Sheree Whitfield – It seems Sheree has found out the hard way that starting a fashion line is never easy, as she has now decided to move on from her infamous She by Sheree fashion line.  “I’ve slowed down quite a bit,” Sheree told HoneyMag.com. “It’s a lot of work and I’ve got so many things that I’m really passionate about. Don’t get me wrong that’s my passion, but right now it’s hard trying to find the right group of people to come together and help out. You can’t do it by yourself. It takes a team. And being in Atlanta it’s very hard. If I was in L.A., if I was in New York, if I was in Paris, you have those type of like-minded people. I can’t find people with the same business sense that I have.”

Nene Leakes – The always loud outspoken Nene had quite a bit to say about the rumored upcoming Bravo housewives franchise – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks,” she told Pop Tarts. As for her favorite Bravo housewife? Nene reveals  that “Gretchen Rossi (of the O.C) is the only one that I truly, truly love,” she added. “I think she’s fun, beautiful and she’s making all the bit**es mad and I love it. Make ‘em mad girl! She has great hair; we talk all the time and just had dinner together in Beverly Hills. Did I say she has great hair?”

Kandi Burruss – Blogger SandraRose recently reported that Kandi’s newly opened boutique store, Tags, might be going out of business very soon.  According to the blogger, business has been slow for the store, which opened last November. The blogger also claimed the store was being closed during business hours and phone calls were going unanswered.  Kandi however denied this story in an interview with AJC.  “Our store is doing very very well,” she said, while also acknowledging that January was slow but that’s a traditionally quiet month for clothing retail anyway. Kandi revealed November and December were very strong and that the boutique just added online shopping as well at www.tagsatl.com.

The 3rd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is scheduled to begin filming next month. The housewives will reportedly become the highest paid Bravo Housewives at the rate of $150,000 each, which makes sense considering their series is the most watched.

Spark St. Jude/The Sunday Paper

The third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to begin filming next month, and the rumor mill is already going out of control. The main questions on everyone’s minds are who will be joining the cast, and who will be getting the axe?

The first question seems to have been answered as several Atlanta bloggers are reporting Celebrity Power Attorney Phaedra Parks will be the latest “Housewife” to join the cast. Blogger Thea from Straightfromthea.com was the first to report this. According to Thea, she called Phaedra to confirm this news and though Phaedra did not confirm or deny the news, her reaction to the question was apparently confirmation enough.

But of course, with joining a hit show like the Real Housewives franchise comes some negativity as well. People are already starting to dig us skeletons about Phaedra, and blogger SandraRose.com alleges Phaedra is a “groupie” who has always wanted to date or be close to celebrities. There’s also an unconfirmed story about Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida, having some past troubles with the law.

Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, also confirms Phaedra will be joining the cast. According to Jonathan, Lisa Wu Hartwell will likely be the one to get the axe, but his sources reveal it could also be Sheree Whitfield.

What’s clear is Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes and Kim have signed on for Season 3. And although NeNe and Kim were demanding significantly more money to do the show, in the end, Jaxson reveals they each got about $150,000 each, a 50 percent raise from the $100,000 they each received to do Season 2.

Bravo is expected to make an announcement on Monday regarding the show’s cast.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta have spent the past few months out of the spotlight following their highly rated dramatic 2nd season, but that is all about to change soon as their 3rd season will begin filming in the upcoming weeks.

What is clear is Kandi Burruss, the fan favorite, will definitely be returning. What is not clear is who will be getting the axe for the 3rd season. This seems to be causing some drama amongst the cast as an “insider” spilled some not so nice things about Kandi to Atlanta blogger – Sandra Rose.

According to this insider, “Kandi’s attitude has taken an abrupt 180 degree turn and she now believes she is the star of the ‘Housewives’. In fact, the closeness between Kandi and the show’s producers has the other cast members so on edge that they have drastically altered their lifestyles out of fear of being kicked off the show.”

The insider also reveals the other housewives are jealous because the producers of the show have been going to Kandi to get her input on adding a new housewife. Apparently, a lot of women are dying to get on the show as more than 30 Atlanta-based industry execs, socialites and D-list celebs have interviewed for the role of ‘housewife’ on season 3. The prospects include former Soap star Victoria Rowell, who has surprisingly expressed a desire to join the show. She is said to be the front-runner.

Also coming this third season, Kim Zolciak will be revealing her bisexuality. She has broken things off with Big Poppa and has been dating a female DJ who goes by the name of DJ Tracy Young. Things are said to be very serious between the two, and there have even been rumors of marriage. Nene Leakes is also said to be going on a crash diet, and is apparently afraid that she might be the one on the chopping block.

According to the report, no one will know who’s getting the axe until the right before the 3rd season begins filming.

Kandi also took to her twitter page to deny the claims made in the story and expressed her desire to have all her fellow cast members return to the show. -

“So i just saw that B.S. on the blog 2day about me throwing my cast mates under the bus to producers. dont believe that mess

4 the record i want @neneleakes @kimzolciak @lisawuhartwell & @iamsheree 2 all stay bcuz they make the show hot!”

Easy to see why she is the fan favorite. I believe Bravo might surprise us and actually keep all the women while adding a 6th housewife. However, I do believe if anyone will be getting the axe, it would be Lisa Wu Hartwell, while likable, she had the most boring storyline last season.

TELL US – DO YOU WANT TO SEE ANY OF THE HOUSEWIVES GET THE AXE? AND IF SO, WHO?
