Yes, it was great to have Tyra in the house, but NeNe was the real star of the show. I’m sure Porsha Williams, Kim Zolciak, and Sheree Whitfield did not enjoy the episode. Even if they didn’t watch it, NeNe had some noteworthy quotes about all of them that I’m sure they’ll have to address at some point.
Although Cynthia Bailey has been slaying it on Real Housewives of Atlantawith her hairstyles and eye-wear line, her personal life hasn’t exactly been thriving. After a few seasons of a rocky relationship with ex Peter Thomas, the two finally divorced. Then they were hanging out a lot (as “friends”) and getting a long better than ever before, which was super confusing to watch.
Now it seems like Cynthia has finally put the Peter era behind her because she has a new man….allegedly.
According to sources producers have asked Eva to do some test filming with the cast to see how she fits in, re: can she cause drama or not?! Apparently they’re bored with the directions of Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams‘s storylines, and Bravo is considering replacing at least one of them with someone fresh, new, and young.
VH1 is bringing back a lot of your favorite reality shows for even more seasons of craziness. Not only that, but Ricky Martin is set to have his own show as well. There are no specifics on the premise, but Ricky is in good company with the other famous people who took their lives to reality TV on the network.
Hopefully there will be more info about Ricky’s new show at some point soon.

Angela, alongside Lisa D’Amatoand Allison Harvard, was competing for the crown. However, during an odd final judges panel,Tyra Banks and the other judges revealed Angelea had been disqualified… without giving viewers any reason or explanation.
“We’re back in Los Angeles on the Top Model set and we’re here for a special finale that’s being conducted under unusual circumstances,” said Tyra. “It turns out, our production team and the network learned information from Angelea that disqualifies her from the competition,” added fashion photographer Nigel Barker.
With Angelea (pictured far right) disqualified, Lisa and Allison were left to battle for the win and Lisa came out on top. Unfortunately for Lisa, viewers are more concerned with Angela’s disqualification.
According to PEOPLE, the speculation is that Angelea might have given away some finale spoilers and her possible win on her personal Facebook page before the show aired, which would equal violating the rules of the competition.
Yes, the rumor now is that Angelea was actually the original winner and that following her disqualification, the show had to re-tape the ending. In fact, the CW network admits they only learned of the information about Angelea AFTER the show wrapped, and that they did have to re-shoot scenes.
The network said in a statement: “After production wrapped on the current cycle of America’s Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale.”
Wowzers. As for Angelea, she seems to be taking her disqualification rather well as she tweeted the following last night: “OMG!!!! IM TRENDING WORLDWIDE on twitter right now!!!!!!!!!! Wowwwww!! That’s the whole world!! Lol! #humbled!! Thanks y’all!!! #LOVE.”
Meanwhile, runner up Allison had the following to say when asked about Angelea’s disqualification. “I think what happened with Angelea is more of a personal thing that went on with her. Out of respect and undying love for her, I think I will remain silent,” said Allison to Zap2It. And the mystery continues…

There’s a big change coming up on next season’s America’s Next Top Model as judge André Leon Talley is leaving the show following four cycles.
PEOPLE magazine is confirming that André, Vogue contributing editor, will be replaced by New York Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone.
“I am a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model and have watched the show for years,” said Kelly, 45, owner of People’s Revolution. “Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show.”
André, 61, who joined the show in early 2010 after many years of pleading from Tyra Banks, reveals there are no hard feelings about the change. “I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life,” he states. “Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles.”
Kelly will replace André starting early next year with cycle 18. She is well known for starring on MTV’s “The Hills” and Bravo’s “Kell on Earth“.
