“They Will Split 30 Seconds After The Baby Is Born”: Wendy Williams Says Kim K And Kanye Won’t Make It Down The Aisle
Now you know Wendy Williams has never been one to bite her tongue when it comes to her opinion, so when she sat down with Andy Cohen on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens Live! and was asked about “Kimye,” she didn’t hold back. The question was, what kind of mom did she think Kim Kardashian would be and did she think Kim and Kanye would make it? Here’s what she said in full, with the “Yeah, I said that ish” face on the whole time:
“She and Kanye will not make it, and what kind of mom will she be? A single mom.
(They will split) 30 seconds after the baby is born. I believe right now there is probably a plan in motion and Kris is probably helping Kim and Kim is probably asking for the help.
I think Kanye’s about sick of all of it and he might think he has invested too much into this family and he is not going to win. You are not going to pull a Kardashian away from Kardashians. They just don’t really understand what it is like to give up for other people.”
Nene Leakes has never been one to mince words when it comes to telling how she feels about certain people, but every now and then the reality TV star and actress still catches us off guard with her straight-to-the-jugular comments about her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast mates, past and present. Sheree Whitfield is the latest victim of Nene’s tongue lashings after the “very rich b****” appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen Sunday night. Although Nene said initially she and Sheree “had a cool relationship,” her current relationship with the brains behind Chateau Sheree couldn’t be further from that. She told Andy of her former acquaintance:
“Sheree is the one person, out of all of the girls, that I will never have anything else to do with. I think Sheree is very evil. I think she is very mean and she is a true b**** and that’s not cute. To be honest, Sheree and I had an argument before the cameras started rolling… I felt Sheree wasn’t being a good friend. She would always want information from you but she would never really tell me anything. She never would tell me about stuff. She was super secretive and I hated that about her. Sheree just wasn’t a good friend and I just didn’t want her in my circle. I didn’t want anything to do with her.”
Though during the same epiode Nene said that when Kim left the show she felt like the series wouldn’t be the same without her, she definitely didn’t feel the same way about Sheree leaving the RHOA franchise.
“Sheree needed to go,” Nene said. “Sheree brought a lot of negative energy to the cast. I felt like she brought this weird, negative energy every time she walked in. She only had business going on in her brain.”
Well, damn. Nene might not be lying about that last part though. Sheree is pretty much the only housewife with absolutely nothing going on, but I’m still trying to figure out how Nene got all this power when it comes to the show. Yes, she’s been a part of the cast since the beginning and is definitely one of the most entertaining cast members, but doesn’t just about everyone bring negative energy to the group? How did Nene become the be-all, end-all voice on who’s the worst cast member and who should stay or go? Andy must just be trying to keep his talent happy.
Kandi Burruss dropped by Andy Cohen’s clubhouse on “Watch What Happens: Live” where she may have spoiled some big spin-off news no one else has talked about yet. She was talking about the news that her “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak settled their years-long feud. But it was how she revealed what might be coming up on the show’s reunion special.
Andy Cohen was being coy and evasive, as expected. Kandi said, “They have a lot of history. It’s cool if they’re gonna be friends again. I mean, maybe we’ll see her on NeNe’s show. On the wedding.”
Kandi said “Nene’s show.” Could this be confirmation that NeNe Leakes is getting her own spin-off, just like Kim did, to document her upcoming nuptials to her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes?
Check out the rest of the details on BlackVoices.com.
You can tell the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is Bravo’s money maker because the network and Andy Cohen are going all out to build up anticipation for the season 5 reunion, which by the way is three parts — yes, three!
Andy just dropped a teaser for the reunion shows which will begin airing April 7, and though he isn’t letting on too much about what’s going to happen in the episodes, Straight from the A appears to have all the tea. According to the site:
While many feel that the recent lawsuit filed by Kandi against Kim was a publicity stunt for the reunion, I heard that Bravo actually banned the ladies from speaking of it at all during the taping. If… (and that’s a big IF) it’s a publicity stunt, it may be used during Kandi’s upcoming “Kandi Factory” show…
As expected, Kenya and Phaedra continued their ‘booty battle” and went head to head as they each shared facts surrounding the fallout over their respective workout DVD’s.
Phaedra, who is about eight months pregnant and ready to pop, brought out a few surprises and attempted to remain calm due to her condition… but I heard that Kenya pulled a few low blows by bringing out a few explosive “exhibits” to prove her points about Phaedra and/or Apollo.
Phaedra, on the other hand, is said to have pullled out proof of Kenya’s silicone implants, as well as her questionable relationship history.
According to my very knowledgeable source, Kenya’s implant history is very well documented in the modeling industry.
… many photographers on her repeat modeling gigs noted “special circumstances” when shooting back shots of Kenya.
Having posed several times for BlackMens Magazine & Smooth, there are reportedly several notes about photoshopping a dent in Moore’s left butt cheek, which is rumored to have stemmed from lack of care after her silicone implant procedure.
My source went on to say:
When Kenya got her work done it wasn’t as popular a procedure in the U.S. She was referred by a friend to a Dr. in Mexico and traveled there to get her work done.
The doctor who performed Kenya’s procedure advised her to sleep on her stomach for a few weeks after the procedure, but she slept on her side, resulting in the imperfection.
Clearly this is all hearsay, but the person who told me is normally a great source of information. So yes… I believe it and am taking his word as the gospel (but that’s just me).
The ladies weren’t just bickering amongst themselves, though, as word is all of their men — except Walter who was tardy for the party because he wasn’t even invited — had some drama as well. Straight from the A goes on to report:
Porsha had a lil bit of Kenya drama as well, but most of her issues centered around her defending her husband Kordell’s “controlling” nature.
All of the house HUSBANDs took to the stage as well. Gregg, Peter,Apollo and even Todd appeared in support of his fiance Kandi.
Last but not least, word on the curb is that one hubby was a no show.
My spidey senses tell me that it was probably Kordell but I haven’t received any confirmation.
In addition to catching a ton of flack about being “too controlling,” Kordell’s past was revisited regarding the gay rumors that surrounded his NFL career.
Considering we now know Kordell and Porsha are headed for divorce, it seems like the former NFL pro is the likely absentee husband. The couple’s current situation alone is enough to make loyal fans tune in to this three-part series but I’m also dying to know whether Andy is going to question Kenya about Walter and whether their relationship was a hoax from the beginning.
Check out the teaser on the next page. What are you dying to find out at the reunion?
Outrageous was the only word that came to mind when it was revealed that Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore would be releasing a music video to go with her drama-inspired “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” track. On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, the former Miss USA debuted her humorous music video and it appears to be more absurd than anyone would’ve expected.
The video opens with a reenactment of Kenya’s Anguilla fight with co-star Porsha Stewart. You know, the fight that birthed the phrase that we now know as “Gone with the wind Fabulous.” In a clear attempt to make fun of her co-star, she has a man dressed up as Porsha, mispronouncing words and exuding extreme ignorance in hilarious quotables.
“Go read a book? I can’t read,” the fake Porsha says at one point in the video.
“Don’t make my husband come over hear and line-sack you,” she goes on to humorously threaten.
“You were Miss USA, Miss USA for one year. That was only 265 days.”
Kenya then proceeds to twirl in her “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” dress, stirring up so much wind, it knocks fake Porsha into the pool.
Kenya’s nemesis and cast member Phaedra Parks wasn’t exempt from being poked fun of in the parody either. In another scene, the video depicts a rather voluptuous woman with pronounced love handles, strutting into a church wearing church hat and Phaedra’s infamous fishnet cover up. The entire “congregation” looks on in dismay as the half-dressed fake Phaedra strolls down the sanctuary’s middle isle. Kenya then proceeds to twirl, blowing the Phaedra impersonator out of the church.
The former Miss USA also proved that she wasn’t above making fun of herself. Dressed up as Beyoncé, she performed a remake of one of the dance scenes from Bey’s “Single Ladies” video.
We can’t say much for Kenya’s vocals, but her music video is hilarious.
Check out Ms. Moore’s video below. Thoughts?
A must watch, if you haven’t seen it already, is the video of Kenya Moore’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she unveiled her new single, “Gone with the Wind Fabulous.”
Let me just say that because it is Moore, my natural gut instinct is to throw shade to this like a ninja hiding in a dark alleyway. However, and it pains me to say this, her song isn’t THAT bad. It isn’t snatching wigs from none of the real divas – I don’t care how many times someone “confuses” (*snickers*) Moore with Beyoncé. But I can honestly say that I was thoroughly entertained by her performance, including her limber background dancers and her gold lamé pants. Likewise, I like that the song is uncomplicated, therefore knowing all the words – or even knowing how to sing – really isn’t a requirement. I mean, you can have a good time around the house, twirling and making up your own lyrics while dusting the furniture and vacuuming the living room floor (i.e. “you say I’m a messy housekeeper, I say I’m fabulous…Now twirl, twirl, twirl…”).
Moore is definitely crazy for that track. However, Moore is not the first delusional and not so honest person to be on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Remember Sheree Whitfield? Of course you do. How could you forget everyone’s favorite lovable narcissist with sociopathic tendencies? But before she could capture our hearts with her mastery of shade, Whitfield was known for fudging truths and exaggerating her importance to heights that Moore wishes she could twirl too. For one, Whitfield’s real life financial situation did not match her lavish spending, the bragging she did on the show and reports about her car repossessions, lawsuits, foreclosures and the fate of Chateau Sheree, which have been well-documented in the press. Then there was the “date” with the fake doctor, Tiy-E Muhammad, best known for playing the professor on the reality television show, The Real Gilligan’s Island. And then there was She for Sheree (seriously, did anybody else start humming “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” after reading She for Sheree?). Bless her heart, it was such a good idea, but never really materialized beyond a fashion show and launch party. She even tried to make, “Who Gon Check Me Boo” into a moneymaking single to no avail.
Despite being one of the founding cast members of RHOA, as well as one of the most entertaining of the Real Housewives (seriously, I could watch Sheree read someone all day) in general, Whitfield never really could capitalize off her 15 minutes of fame. Outside of playing up the shenanigans on camera, a Real Housewives series has the potential to be a goldmine for even the least industrious of cast members. And between the spin-off shows, cookbooks, Pinot Grigio wineries and the various jewelry, makeup and clothing lines, most of the women of the Real Housewives shows have proven to be some very business savvy women. Speaking particularly of the Atlanta series, Kim Zolciak was able to use the show to not only start a wig line and a career in music, which she eventually gave up on, but she was also able to get a husband, which we know is all she really wanted. Kandi Burruss not only was able to snag a boyfriend/recently announced fiancé from the show – literally snatching him off the production line – but she was also able to use the show to market her own line of sex toys (every single episode has featured either a Bedroom Kandi d**do or mention of the Bedroom Kandi Kegel balls). Cynthia Bailey used her celebrity from her role as NeNe Leakes’ hype (wo)man to open The Bailey Agency School of Fashion. And Phaedra Parks basically starts a new business every single episode. Even NeNe Leakes,Whitfield’s closest friends turned fiercest nemesis, has managed to parlay being a loud mouth black woman with an attitude into a fruitful career in Hollywood, with roles on Celebrity Apprentice, Glee and The New Normal, playing a loud mouth black woman with an attitude. Yet Sheree is the only consistent and notorious cast member who wasn’t able to flip her on-screen image into more profitable and sustainable ventures.
However, unlike her predecessor, Moore is poised to capitalize off of every moment on the series. Perhaps that wisdom comes from having to reinvent herself in order to not only stay relevant, but to remain financially secure too. After her stint as Miss USA, Moore was able to leverage her pageant career into work in both television and film, including roles on Martin, Living Single and in the film, Deliver Us From Eva among many other roles and appearnces. And it was probably her contacts in the film industry, which enabled her to start a production company, Moore Vision Media, which has produced a number of straight to DVD black cinema classics like Trois and…well…we all have seen/heard of Trois, right?
And as NeNe has suggested, it appears that Moore has done her homework. SO far, she has taken one of the strangest, and I suspect blatantly staged, moments of this season (for real, who steps outside in a peach cobbler-colored flowing dress unless you plan on doing a couple of old school, Diana Ross-in-Mahogany twirls?) and immediately flipped it into not only a dance song, but a ringtone and a line of T-shirts too. And something tells me that these ventures are only just the beginning – see the previews to next week’s episode in which we are teased with a Moore announcement about a Stallion Booty workout video (an obvious slight at Phaedra and Apollo’s Donkey Booty video).
It’s clear that even though Moore and Whitfield play/played a very similar role on the show, Moore has no plans on following in the tragic repossessed heels of Sheree Whitfield. Despite NeNe’s concerns about preserving the “authenticity” of the show, Moore clearly understands that the limelight, particularly the short attention span required for reality television, is very finicky. So you better get to singing songs, hawking products, doing dramatic readings and even off-tilt (yeah I caught that) twirling your way to riches before that last second on the 15-minute clock runs out.
I’m curious how much Andy and the good folks at Bravo TV paid Miss Kenya “I don’t do anything for free” Moore to come on their set last night in a pair of gold hot pants and sing her new song with a straight face because I don’t think there’s any amount of money in the world that could’ve had me clowning myself like that on live TV at the ripe age of 41.
During “Watch What Happens Live” Sunday night, Andy nearly bubbled over with excitement at the breakout “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star hitting his late-night show to perform her track “Gone With the Wind Fabulous.” And just in case you’re curious, it is as much of a hot mess as you probably expect it to be. I already mentioned the gold pants, but add in the black lace-up corset and her inability to carry a tune and stay on beat, and well, you end up with your backup dancers being the life of the show. Yes, those men were working that vogue pose honey.
But enough set up, gone head and take a look for yourself and tell us what you think. Hot or hot a** mess?
NeNe Leakes Confirms That She’s Getting Married, Again, And Talks Donald Trump Claiming He Started Her Career
After 17 years of knowing each other, money coming in and money going, stardom coming for NeNe and sista girl taking the lead in her relationship, and Gregg claiming fame went to her head, things obviously got messy between NeNe and Gregg Leakes. After 13 years of marriage, it seemed the reality TV curse hit and before you knew it, the two were divorcing in 2011. But if you follow Real Housewives of Atlanta, you know that the two have been getting cozy with one another once again. In the latest season, Gregg seems to be head over heels for his ex, and we even had to bear witness to a conversation about whether homeboy loved her or not. Leakes made it known in a recent interview that she felt like Gregg wanted to run around and sow his oats, and once he realized he was missing out on a good thing (her), he came running back. The two are clearly so much in love once again that reports said that Gregg proposed to NeNe, possibly on New Year’s Eve, hoping she would say yes a second time around.
But it wasn’t until an interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night that Leakes actually opened up about the proposal, and confirmed that she was indeed going to be a bride once more. When asked if she was engaged, homegirl said, “WELL, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: ‘Will you marry me–again?’” And of course, she said yes. Looking very cute in her tweed-ish dress on Fallon’s couch, she lit up when talking about Gregg and their romantic New Year’s Eve, which included rose petals on her beach condo floor, as well as strawberries, wine, and a heart made out of stones on their bed. It’s good to see that they’re looking to work things out, but hopefully Gregg will be more secure with NeNe’s fame, because she only seems to be going up from here…Congrats again!
And on a side note, NeNe also chatted with Jimmy about folks like Donald Trump and Andy Cohen coming on his show claiming they started her career and helped to make it what it is now. When Fallon told Leakes about how Trump said such a thing, and then Andy Cohen came on his show claiming that Trump was confused, and that HE made Real Housewives of Atlanta, and in turn, shaped her career, she politely shut all that down. “Well, you know I’m friends with both Andy and Donald Trump, I’ve worked with Donald for a long time and I’ve obviously worked with Andy Cohen, but uh, NeNe Leakes started NeNe Leakes’ career.” Well, if you didn’t know, now you know!
Check out video below of her conversation with Jimmy and let us know what you think below!
This ish is so bad we had to make up a new phrase for what took place on “Watch What Happens Live”last night — NSFL: Not Safe for Lunch
If you didn’t already know Shemar Moore was a thirstball from the last two articles we posted of him slobbing down random women on TV shows, it ought to be more than confirmed for you now that the “Criminal Minds” actor not only locked lips with Sweet Brown, but transferred liquor directly from his mouth to hers. We’re not saying anything’s wrong with Sweet Brown but she does have that case of bronchitis and already told us, “ain’t nobody got time for that!”
The craziest thing about this entire spectacle is that Shemar Moore lowkey had to convince Sweet Brown to let him slob her down. What was supposed to be a simple round of shots, turned slobberiffic when Andy Cohen was one shot short and Shemar improvised by telling Sweet like three different times, “I’m gonna put it in my mouth then put it in yours.” She was looking at him like,” what?”, while as a viewer I was thinking two things: one, haven’t we seen you do this already? and two, if somebody doesn’t wipe those juices off Sweet’s mouth I’m gonna be sick.
Unfortunately, the thirstiness didn’t stop there because by the end of the show, Shemar ended up topless, giving Sweet Brown a lap dance. We can’t make this stuff up.
Rihanna is starting to make her media rounds to promote her new album, “Unapologetic,” and yesterday she stopped by Facebook’s NYC office to do a live interview with Andy Cohen. The Bravo TV host is known for getting lots of good info out of the housewives and he did a pretty good job of picking Rih Rih’s brain too — like what’s up with her and Breezy, what’s this “Nobodies Business” song about, and who she really wants to work with.
For starters, Andy had Rihanna play his word association game “Spill the Tea,” forcing her to say the first thing that comes to mind for each of these artists. Here’s what she said:
Jay-Z:“Even more genius.”
Mariah Carey: “Her voice is an instrument. It’s unreal really.”
Beyonce:“Gorgeous and a stab to my ego.”
Mary J. Blige:“Power.”
Chris Brown:“He’s pretty dope too.” He’s kinda alright.”
On the note of Breezy’s dopeness, Andy asked Rihanna if they’re officially together, to which she simply replied “No. Not together.” She had a little more to say about their new music collabo, “Nobodies Business,” though.”
“Basically [it's] the way I look at everything regarding my personal life. Even though you have to witness it, it still is mine,” she said. “This is mine at this point, and when it gets to my music, I’ll give and I’ll give, and I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me that I get to decide.” “If I had it my way, it would be really nobody’s business.”
Check out the full interview here. Are you excited for Rihanna and Chris Brown’s new song?
