The Real Housewives of Atlanta elder merely said what we all know to be true – that Melissa observed Teresa's fame and "success" from Real Housewives of New Jersey and wanted a piece of the pignoli cookie, but then she came on the show to try and usurp Mrs. Giudice's Flipping Throne. And mama don't play when it comes to who wears the designer pants in the Housewives family!
Speaking the truth always makes waves so Brandi and Melissa are both fighting back! Melissa, who will be part of her own WWHL special this Sunday (featuring all the S5 Jersey girls), suggests that NeNe is a little scared of the newbies nipping at her heels.
Last night Sheree "She By SheBroke" Whitfield made her return to Bravo on WWHL. I am pleased to report she is just as She By SheDelusional as ever. Thank goodness that some things never change! Although it's too bad Sheree had a "falling out" with Lawrence because her weave was not looking super great!
Andy Cohen, who loves to get a rise out of his guests, played the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star a clip of Iyanla Vanzant discussing Sheree's appearance on her show. Iyanla did not mince words.
"I think when people are allowed to get away with bad behavior for a long time they become very brittle when you challenge them. And I also think when someone is controlling they can't surrender," Iyanla said of Sheree.
NeNe Leakes sat down withAndy Cohen for an epic one-on-one interview on Watch What Happens Live. I have to say, NeNe was really candid, blunt, and endearing. And she's a wealth of information! I wish I could do a one-on-one and ply her for secrets.
First up, in case you weren't aware: NeNe definitely considers Real Housewives of Atlanta "her" show. And she's very protective of original Housewives in general. "I'm the star, I'm the boss. When people think of Atlanta Housewives, they think NeNe Leakes," she informed Andy.
Shockingly, NeNe says that Sheree used to be a really low-maintenance, and didn't wear extensions or makeup. "She was just this plain girl and had this really great life with this really great athlete." They were friends since Sheree's newlywed days and hung out all the time. NeNe was her sidekick at many a Falcons' games when Bob was still playing.
NeNe will also dish on her upcoming wedding spinoff, I Dream Of NeNe and the publicity stunt rekindled relationship she has with Kim Zolciack. Personally I'm hoping for some good ol' fashioned "Close your legs to married men, trashbox!" mayhem – maybe Sheree will be a surprise caller. One can only hope, right Boo?!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the episode, so please join us!
NeNe appears on WWHL at 8/9c. A video preview is below!
With all the bickering withPhaedra Parks, naturally we all assumed that's who NeNe wanted exiled to the Island of Lost Housewives. But in a preview of this Sunday's hour-long WWHL special, NeNe reveals it was actually Porsha Stewart she wanted fired!
"Yes, I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something – I'm a good judge of character; I've been blessed, child, I've been given a gift – and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough," NeNe admits.
While Kandi is suing her former friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star over the song Don't Be Tardy for the Party, Kim may be having the last laugh over whose spin-off is garnering the most attention. Viewers were right on time for the premiere of season two of Kim's Don't Be Tardy show, while last week no one seemed to want to party atThe Kandi Factory. I wonder how Kim will feel to learn that this week she actually gave her new nemesis' show a boost?
As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
