The Real Housewives of Atlanta

They never go away, do they?  Just because a lady has decided (or Bravo for her) that a housewives franchise isn't the way to go, the women who leave their shows always find a way to scurry back into the limelight…no matter how faded said light may seem.

Do you remember original Real Housewives of Atlanta's Lisa Wu Hartwell (now, just plain ol' Lisa Wu after a recent divorce)?  She laughed in the face of She By She Broke with her affordable Closet Freak line?  Yeah, she's back…and she's touting a lip gloss line and mediocre movie roles along the way.  I always liked Lisa, but I understand why she bid farewell to her franchise.  She was just far, far too normal.

Our favorite Real Housewives can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of the Real Housewives' Thanksgiving! Enjoy!

Despite starring in Real Housewives of Atlanta, a mega hit for Bravo, Kandi Burruss doesn't consider herself a reality TV star. If asked, she'll tell you she's a "business and entertainment mogul" who simply likes to help people.

Kandi's desire to help combined with her passion for music brought us The Kandi Factory. After the show last week, Kandi shared this picture, adding "My mom & my daughter came to support me tonight!" Aren't they beautiful?!?

Just two days after that pic was taken, Kandi showed her mom, Joyce, just how much she appreciated her support…

Oh Atlanta.  You just want to be a normal metropolis.  I can assure you it won’t happen if you continue to let Love & Hip Hop Atlanta film in the peach state, but now the Real Housewives of Atlanta are adding to your pain.

Sister2Sister is reporting on a fight between NeNe Leakes and everyone’s favorite sex toy purveyor Kandi Burrus in the franchise’s filming of season five.  The cite reveals that the Bravo duo got “into a fight with production.”  Read that again, dear readers.  It’s unclear as to whether NeNe and Kandi were fighting amongst themselves or taking on production in a solidified front.  Who knows?  Who cares?  It’s drama regardless!

While we’re all still mourning the exit of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield, she’s ready to move along and take on the fashion world.

Sheree’s rep told Us Weekly yesterday that Sheree is working on her clothing line and revamping it into a line of fitness wear instead of the glamorous elegance that was She by Sheree.

“Now was the right time to head into other endeavors that she has on her plate. She’s going to be launching her fitness blog and revamp She by Sheree as an athletic clothing line rather than couture fashion.”

Couture fashion? There was a couture fashion line?  *cough cough*

Wiping the coffee off my chin and moving along.  It seems that Sheree’s clothing line played a part in her decision to leave RHOA. Sheree was feeling that the show played favorites with Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes and helped their endeavors along, while ignoring hers.

Sheree A friend told Radar Online: “Sheree was jealous of Kim and NeNe. She felt like she wasn’t getting as much attention, they all started together but it’s been unbalanced ever since.” Including the pimping of personal product lines on the show.  “They went out of their way to promote Kim’s wig line and gave her a spin-off for her wedding”, and they let NeNe film with both Glee and Celebrity Apprentice.  (and let’s not forget Kandi’s toy line!) Meanwhile, they spun Sheree’s clothing line launch into a huge joke.  (Thank you, Bravo!)

“She launched a clothing line and they turned it into a joke about how bad the clothes are. She wants to be a fitness instructor and they didn’t even promote that. They didn’t encourage her like they did the other two. She is just not as exciting, she is not as ridiculous, so viewers don’t care as much.”

All that whining aside, it boils down to money! Duh! How else will Neverland be completed? Sheree walked after she was offered significantly less than the others for the upcoming season.

“She was not offered the same money as they were. To be offered less money was the final blow, they said take it or leave it – so she left.”

Speaking of salary, Kim Z was obviously offered plenty, because despite reports that NeNe supposedly demanded they fire her, Kim’s definitely in for the next season of crazy.

Kim took to Twitter yesterday to squash the rumors that she’d been giving her walking papers along with Sheree.

“Lmao…I WILL be back next season on RHOA …. Going to miss @IamSheree though!!! Its Media fakeout!! They always lie!”

There ya have it. Kim is In.

TELL US – ARE YOU DYING TO BUY A SHE BY SHESPORTS BRA? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL BE BACK NEXT SEASON? DO YOU THINK NENE TRIED TO HAVE HER FIRED?

With their fourth season starting to wind down, the Real Housewives of Atlanta filmed their reunion show on Friday! And according to the tweets by Andy Cohen and some of the housewives, it is the best reunion to date! Below are some of those tweets:

Andy Cohen – “We just wrapped the #RHOA Reunion. Probably the best ATL reunion in 4 Seasons of the series. And I’m on vacation now! SeeYa!”

Nene Leakes – “The 1 thing I learned @ the reunion show yesterday is that people will say, do & believe whatever #Dumbbroads

Kandi Burruss – “Good morning! Yesterday I let people get under my skin & take me out of my character.#GoingHam but Im Looking forward 2 a better day 2day.”

Kim Zolciak - “Some ppl n this world have no class, using the F word referring to gays is disgusting, insulting my husband etc is why prison is where she shud of stayed!”

Nene - “I can’t wait 2 get back 2 Lisa’s house that I live n! LOL LOL the lies Mr Never Land tells! They never end”

Nene – “Finished the reunion show early this morning where shots were fired & lies were told but Raleigh NC i’am here”

A photo of Kandi Burruss at the reunion is below! It seems like Sheree one or more of the housewives accused NeNe of living with former housewife, Lisa Wu Hartwell.

Meanwhile, this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta drama has centered around the feud between the talls and the smalls. However, lots of pesky gossip is surfacing behind the scenes, leading me to think that some of the biggest drama is stuff we didn’t get to see.

According to Marlo Hampton’s most recent Bravo blog, she’s learned a lot. Some might even say she’s tinkering on the edge of a new vocabulary. She writes, “Today I learned a new word, shadanfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\ , noun: A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others. I learned that when people around you do not mean you well, you must not give them the tools with which they can trip you up.” That sounds like it is straight from Webster’s Dictionary. Dern, that’s deep Marlo!

Talking about that vacation which never seems to go away, Marlo continues, “Some time had passed since my mistake. To be honest, I had hoped that with it all taking place on a different continent, maybe it would not have traveled back home. There I was, all dressed up and ready to play — I expected the evening only to be fun. But Sheree [Whitfield] had been waiting. To look at it now, she had it all planned out. She had as fast as she could made sure to tell on me, and like a vulture circling its prey, she had chosen the optimal time to strike — when I least expected it and was defenseless.” Um, to which mistake is Marlo referring?

Marlo then goes on to explain why she lied to Lawrence about using the F-word, you know, even though it was caught on camera! She adds: “I did not want to lie. I wanted the opportunity to explain and to say sorry. But I couldn’t, because she was there, gloating, so eager to bring my mistake to light. I felt ambushed, backed into a corner. Her smiling face was so hateful, so cunning. What strikes me, is that her friend is not even her concern. In her enthusiasm to set me up, she actually delighted in causing him pain, by stating it was him I had directly talked about, when it was not.”

Marlo is probably just happy to be off the radar, as Phaedra Parks’ dark past seems to be surfacing. A former friend of Phaedra’s is coming forward with a tell-all book touting the Atlanta housewife as the ringleader in an alleged insurance and forgery scam that sent her husband to the clink.

The source, Angela Stanton, is promoting a book, Lies of a Real Housewife–the book cover is below–and recently revealed a lot about her former friend and alleged partner in crime in an interview with vibe.com. She speaks about her time in state prison and giving birth while handcuffed to a bed in jail. Angela lost her mother while serving her sentence, and Phaedra went to the funeral in her place. Once released, she was charged with seventeen counts of conspiracy, and her friend Phaedra wouldn’t represent her, citing a conflict of interest. It was at this point that Apollo’s brother, Everett Nida, claimed Angela was the mastermind behind the crimes.

While she didn’t have to return to prison, Angela found it nearly impossible to find a job with her criminal past. She was scraping by for her children, and even attempted to become a “dancer” at a nightclub. Angela says she was shocked to turn on RHOA to see that Phaedra had married Apollo, and had been able to maintain her lifestyle and give birth not handcuffed to a bed. She was disgusted that Phaedra could pretend to be a friend and even attend her mother’s funeral, and then turn on her. While Angela holds herself accountable for her actions and decisions, she maintains that it was not her, but Phaedra, who was the brains behind the operation. She states, “My book is not about vengance, it’s about justice.” An excerpt of her book is below.

Phaedra Parks was the answer to everything. The only thing I really needed to know was how to act. All my life I always believed that acting was part of my God given talent. Along with hustling, acting came natural. I began thinking of myself as this smooth criminal. I had gotten accustomed to the quick money by now, and quite naturally I never turned down any jobs, no matter how high the risk.

The next mission would be one of the biggest jobs ever assigned to me by Phae. The assignment was well thought out, strategized, and planned. The execution of it was going to demand time. These types of jobs have to crawl before they mature and start walking. Then low and behold, before you even know it, they were off and running…The first part of my assignment involved scoping out potential vehicles at luxury car dealerships. Each day I simply drove around Atlanta, and the surrounding cities looking for potential prey. Every car lot I visited had several luxury cars. I spotted all of the latest models of Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Hummers, Corvettes, and Cadillacs.

Once I had the information recorded, I reported it back to E. We rarely discussed business on the phone. So E and I met daily, and swapped information, and fake documents. It seemed like we never stopped. I provided the VIN numbers, and he provided the fake identification cards, and fraudulent registration cards matched to the vehicles I previously recorded. At this point, I was handling all of the day-to-day operations.

The cars were then sent to a chop shop. The VIN numbers were filed down, and replaced with new ones. Once replaced, I was provided with fraudulent certificates of vehicle titles from the state of Ohio. It seemed like I was going back and forth to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Hapeville, Georgia, on a daily basis. The Ohio titles had to be swapped out for Georgia. No, ifs, ands or buts about it, that was an important step of the scam.

There were other areas of the business that required my attention. This was a major operation, and I could only be in one place at a time. Phae insisted that I enlist the help of my cousin, Sheree. She too was a go-getter and about her business as well. Anything having to do with making money, she was with it, and so was I…

On tonight’s episode, Peter and Cynthia discuss the scene Mallory made at their anniversary party. Cynthia seems ready to write off her sister at this point. Kandi and Kim have a sit down to clear the air. They discuss the comment about Kim not holding a black baby and how their collaboration with Kim’s music career put unnecessary stress on their friendship. They miss trips to the Bahamas, Connect Four games, and their girls playing together. Can I get a collective “Awwwww”? NeNe meets with her attorney to discuss the status of her divorce from Gregg. She is feeling scared about such a big decision, having been with Gregg for such a long time. The Neenster seems very vulnerable, but even in the lawyer’s office she’s cracking jokes. A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET on Bravo. Watch a preview clip below.
