*It looks like there’s more deeply rooted drama with the ladies of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” because not only does Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes have long lasting beef, but also Kandi doesn’t want to see the white girl return.
“I don’t think she should come back,” Kandi recently told “The Gossip Game” star Ms. Drama.
Though Kandi and Kim are in the middle of a legal battle over the rights to music Kandi produced for the “Tardy for the Party” singer, that apparently has nothing to do with her preferring Kim stay gone.

The phrase ratchet reality star almost sounds repetitious since there are few, if any, individuals on reality TV with redeeming qualities But these stars here are some of the most notorious on the tube, and quite honestly, the worst 15-minute celebs we’ve seen in the past few years.
To put it simply, Stevie J is scum and think he’s God. Sorry to break it to you Stevie J, but you’re just ratchet. He has no respect for women and makes everything a joke (remember his strip club threats?) I feel sorry for Mimi and Joseline. They have a problem on their hands forever.

Kenya Moore Responds To Talk Of NeNe Leakes’ Enormous Ego, Says The Inconsistency Of The Industry ‘Has A Way Of Making You Humble’
Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and her seemingly massive ego has been a popular topic of conversation lately. We’re not sure if it’s her blasé attitude or her need to constantly remind everyone how “rich” she is, but our girl appears to be rubbing folks the wrong way. Just last month rumors surfaced that the Glee star got all Hollywood during Bravo’s Upfronts and put up a fuss about posing with advertisers. During the premiere of Tyler Perry’s Peeples, former Miss USA, Kenya Moore chatted it up with HipHollywood about her co-star’s perceived growing ego and had quite a bit to say when she was asked about the difficulties of remaining humble while in the spotlight.
”What I’ve learned in my 20 years of being in the business, you have good years, you have bad years … you may do one movie one year, and none the next three years. That has a way of making you really humble,” Moore expressed.
“When you have a career, and you go through those ups and downs, it really teaches you that this is not guarantee. You can see the same people going up as you will going down. So you just have to have a bit of humility and understand that you’re blessed to be in the situation that you’re in. And just hopefully, you’ll be able to continue to be blessed,” she continued.
Ironically, Kenya’s chat about humility and the inconsistency of the business came only days before it was announced that NBC canceled Leake’s show The New Normal.
Turn the page to check out footage from her interview. What are your thoughts on Kenya’s advice? Is she practicing the same philosophy she’s preaching about?
Here’s round two of the baby birth news for today. US Weekly just learned that “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida just dropped their bun in the oven! A source told the mag that Phaedra gave birth to the couple’s second son today in Atlanta and ”Mom and baby are doing great.”
Thank God all that drama on the three RHOA reunions didn’t affect Phaedra and Apollo’s little bundle! Though there aren’t any details on the name or the baby’s weight, we’re sure he’s a cutie just like the couple’s 2-year-old son Ayden, and we can only imagine how the southern belle will spoil the new prince in the house. Remember Ayden’s first birthday party?
Surprisingly, the reality TV couple hasn’t spilled the beans on Twitter yet, but it looks like the little one came just in time. Less than a day ago, Phaedra sent out this tweet which likely helped the pair welcome their new pride and joy into the world safely today.

“Everybody’s Making Light Of It!”: Porsha Stewart Responds To Claims That Her Divorce Is A PR Stunt To Stay On RHOA
Ever since it was reported back in March that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart, aka Porsha Williams, and her husband, Kordell Stewart, would be going their separate ways during a split that was a shocker to everyone (especially Porsha), it has been reported by multiple websites and publications that the divorce, especially because of the abrupt manner that in which it happened, could all be a ploy by Williams to get to keep a slot as star on the reality show.
While there have been moments where after the news broke that Stewart was filing for divorce, Williams was out and about at events for RHOA putting on a happy face, that doesn’t mean she wasn’t going through a tumultuous time internally and that the implosion of her marriage wasn’t happening. In an interview with the folks over at the Rickey Smiley Morning Show for Dish Nation, she called all claims of a fake divorce hurtful and complete foolery:
“Every day I just hear the craziest things about this situation online. For me, that’s the worst thing you could possibly do is play with marriage. For me, the situation is so unfortunate. For people to say that it’s fake, that’s what hurts. It’s like, I’m over here really going through this and everybody’s making light of it. I wouldn’t do that to myself, I wouldn’t do that to my son…It doesn’t make any sense at all.”
A rep for the reality personality also backed her up by sending a statement to TMZ confirming that the divorce proceedings are VERY real, and that though Williams is still hoping things can work out between herself and Kordell Stewart, it doesn’t seem possible:
“Given everything this abrupt divorce filing has put her through in the public, [Porsha] would never bring something like this on herself, especially with them having a child in the house.”
“[Porsha] wishes things could have been different [with Kordell] but that simply is not possible.”
It’s looking a bit like deja vu on the set of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” right now as “breakout star” Kenya Moore is once again caught up in a little drama over money. Basically she’s saying she’ll return for a sixth season of the show, but only if the money is right. I.e. you know she’s probably asking for a major raise since she was the most talked about cast member this season.
I’m actually not mad at Kenya for that, I’m just curious how much she’s asking for — you know mama thinks she’s the pioneer of all things black and fabulous. According to TMZ, the beauty pageant queen is “finalizing talks with Bravo to come back next season, but her paycheck has become a sticking point in contract negotiations.”
As expected, TMZ also says the issue will be settled very soon and her return is pretty much a done deal, which means the network is not trying to let that ticking time bomb of a cast member go and will probably pay her whatever her crazy heart desires to see her cause more mayhem another season.
Surprisingly, at least to me, Porsha Stewart is expected to come back too, but in a smaller role. If anything, I thought she either wouldn’t return in order to reconcile with Kordell, or she’d have an even bigger part in the case, being that her current marital troubles are the stuff reality TV perfection is made of. I thought for sure producers would be all over her divorce battle for the sake of ratings, but perhaps Porsha made the decision to scale back considering reality TV was likely a major culprit in the breakdown of her marriage. Whatever the reason, let’s hope things work out for the best for her.
BTW, are you glad Kenya’s coming back next season?
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.
Peter Thomas has not been known to keep his opinions to himself. So why would he hold his tongue after Kenya Moore’s written lashing?
The reality co-star responded to Kenya’s rant about how the men of “RHOA” need to step their game up and act like men.
Kenya took offense with Peter’s aggressive verbal exchange with her in defense of Walter Jackson, Kenya’s ex. Walter wasn’t invited to the reunion show, and Peter decided to take up for his new friend, challenging Kenya on nearly every comment she made about him.

On Sunday night Bravo aired the Real Housewives of Atlanta: Secrets Revealed special, during which fans were offered an inside look at never-before-seen RHOA footage. As with any Real Housewives of Atlanta episode, drama was being stirred up. In one particular instance, Kenya Moore was the one who seemed to initiate the drama. The episode showed footage that was left out from Cynthia and Kenya’s golf outing that aired earlier this season. During the outing, Kenya told Cynthia that when she and Porsha first met, Porsha implied that there may have been something more than a platonic friendship shared between NeNe and Cynthia.
“When I first met Porsha, we talked about your friendship with NeNe. Well, she was gossiping like ‘they seem to have the most unnatural relationship between two women,’ almost like you two might be gay,” Kenya told Cynthia.
In another never-before-scene clip, Cynthia confronts Porsha about her alleged comments. Before even giving Porsha a chance to even fully confirm or deny having made the comments, clearly upset and taken back, Cynthia firmly tells Porsha not to even think about hinting around anything like that ever again.
“Don’t ever make me feel like you are trying to insinuate anything like that!”
Cynthia also found it necessary to deny the rumors to fans via her Twitter page as well.
Cynthia appeared to be a bit more disturbed by the allegations than NeNe, who simply responded “I hang with the gays, but I ain’t gay.”
What do you think of Cynthia’s reaction? Could this be the real reason Cynthia fired Porsha as her Miss Renaissance Pageant assistant?
“You’re Not Supposed To Be Skinny And Pregnant”: Are People Too Hard On Mothers-To-Be? Phaedra Parks Thinks So
If watching Kim Kardashian get called a whale on the cover of tabloids over the past few months, and watching everyone’s jaw drop at the pregnancy weight Jessica Simpson has gained with her first child and now her second, it’s clear that people no longer like to let pregnant people just be pregnant. Especially when they’re in the public eye. Let some cellulite come into view, have your breast grow a bit larger than expected, or your legs end up getting a little bigger, and people act like you’re just letting yourself go on purpose. As a mother-to-be to a second child, a little brother to son Ayden, Phaedra Parks has noticed this trend and it’s clear that she’s quite tired of it. In an interview with The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, when one of the personalities on the show said Phaedra looked good pregnant, but Kim Kardashian does NOT and that her weight gain was going to push Kanye away, she reminded the world that, “You’re NOT supposed to be skinny and pregnant,” so folks need to give women like her and Kim a break.
“I’m thin and pregnant. I’m a regular-sized woman. I’m all-natural. All this, God gave me, I grew it. And I mean, everybody’s not made to be skinny, everybody’s not made to be fat. So you gotta be happy [with] the skin you’re in. I’m advertising what’s real.”
“When women are pregnant, they are going through a whole transition. I’m growing a baby…People are too hard on pregnant women. Obviously you don’t want to gain a lot of weight but at the end of the day, some people do. It just happens. You’re not supposed to be skinny and pregnant.”
And on a side-note, Parks also opened up about Kenya More saying Phaedra was too big around the time she filmed her “Donkey Booty” tape for people to take it seriously. Parks revealed that she was actually three months pregnant when she put it together, but just hadn’t revealed that information to the world on the show. So boo to Ms. Moore…
