As Kim Fields and Halle Berry have shown us, turning 40 definitely does not mean that a gal’s baby-making days are over. But what about “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes? After going through a rather ugly divorce, she remarried the love of her life, Gregg Leakes, last year and appears to have an amazing career that most only get to dream of. So is a new baby exactly what the Leakes need to make their picture perfect life complete? Well, not exactly. According to NeNe, she has her hands full with her son, Bryson’s daughter.
“We have a grand baby and have no desire to have more,” the “Dancing with the Stars” contender recently told Life & Style.
In addition to her two-year-old “glam baby” Bri’Asia, the “Glee” star says she’s busy raising her 15-year-old son, Brent, and that she has no interest in subjecting her body to child-birth ever again.
“My son [Brent] is 15! I would never push out another child!”
Well, that settles it. But you have to admit, a new baby would certainly make for an interesting storyline for the full-length spin-off show, “I Dream of NeNe,” that insiders claim Bravo is working on.
Cynthia Bailey is no fool. Though “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has had an amazing six-year run thus far and while it is still an extremely successful installment of the ‘Housewives’ franchise, she realizes that all good things come to an end—even wildly successful reality shows.
“Just as it started, it will end, and we will be replaced by someone that America thinks is much more interesting to watch,” the supermodel explained during an interview with Now What?
The RHoA went on to say that she has no regrets about appearing in the series.
“My only regret would be to walk away from this and not be set for life and not have taken advantage of every single opportunity that I could.”
Cynthia, who was joined by her husband, Peter, also discussed the importance of compatibility when selecting a mate.
“Please don’t marry someone you’re no compatible with because it’s not going to work,” Cynthia said. “You gotta want the same things.”
And speaking of their relationship, Cynthia also weighed in on how it felt to have the public and family members constantly offering commentary on their relationship.
“Well with my family, it was difficult because your family is your family and you always want to have a good relationship with them. However, I will take responsiblity for how they approached the situation. I was the one who would pick up the phone and call them anytime something happened or money was looking funny or I was uncomfortable.They were my sounding boards. They were the people I went to and vented to because they were the closest to me. I gave them that right and I gave them that power. So I do take some responsibility.”
As for the public, Cynthia says people were very insensitive when her and Peter were experiencing relationship problems.
“People were literally rooting for us not to make it.

Earlier this week Radar Online released a report that Kim Zolciak and her husband Kroy Biermann are facing financial hardships. According to the report, mere weeks after the couple was “forced” to take out a $300,000 loan to finish construction on their fancy Atlanta mansion, they were served with an ultimatum by Uncle Sam.
Apparently they were presented with two tax liens, stating that they owe $1,665.26 to the city of Milton, Georgia in back taxes and $10,572.67 to the State of Georgia and Fulton County. Court documents reportedly go on to say that if the reality TV couple fails to pay the owed amounts in full within 90 days of the Jan. 9 and 11 issuance dates, their money and home could be seized by the government. This gives them until April to pay off their debt. Kim, however, is denying the claims.
“Another day another bullsh*t story! I guess I better get to work to pay 12k,” she tweeted.
“Seriously, if the media spent as much time on positivity as they do negativity/lies can you imagine what a better world we would live in,” she added.
“Meanwhile @biermann71 and I are going to get another 4 wheeler today!! Holllllla family fun.”
Kroy also got upset over the allegations and decided to address them via Twitter.
“Bloggers are not the NEWS (no credibility) and they sure as hell do not know my portfolio and what’s in it,” he wrote.
“The cowards should report how I am a hard working tax paying American that DOES NOT LIVE OFF THE GOVERNMENT!” he added. “Unlike your unemployed blogging a** eating off of my PAID taxes.”
We certainly want to believe their claims that all is well on the money front. Kim and Kroy have plenty of mouths to feed and the last thing they need is to have their home seized.
The hot and heavy romance shared between former “Basketball Wives LA” star Bambi and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Scrappy appears to have fizzled out pretty quickly. Just a few short months ago Scrappy was hollering about how Bambi is the only person who remained in his corner during his latest rehab stint.
“Bam my boo,” he shared during a taping of “Kandi Koated Nights” a few months back. “The reason I say that is because off-camera, she was really there. She was really there when I was going through my shiznayee.”
Apparently her off-camera compassion wasn’t enough to hold their relationship together because the two have officially parted ways—and it does not look like the split was amicable. It’s unclear how long the reality stars have been apart, but Bambi announced the breakup in a not-so-subtle way to Instagram followers over the weekend.
“Got mad at it and I don’t want it no’ mo’,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Y’all can have y’all n***a back,” she added throwing obvious shots at Scrap’s chronic side-boo Shay “Buckeey” Johnson and his ex-fiancée, Erica Dixon. “It was fun. Y’all guls need to thank me. I taught him how to treat a lady.”
There’s no telling what prompted the split, but there’s a possibility that money problems may have contributed to their situation.
“When a rich n***a want you and your n***a can’t do nothing for you,” she added in another post.
Her posts were later removed. Honestly, it’s not all that surprising that this couple didn’t make it. Maybe we’ll get to witness the drama unfold during the new season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”
After over two months of asking: “Are they or aren’t they?” Kordell Stewart has finally shut down rumors that he’s dating “Braxton Family Values” star Towanda Braxton.
“All kind of rumors have been out there for a long, long time. I’ve cleared up one but my commitment and my relationship is truly with parenthood and raising my son,” the former RHoA star told Tom Joyner. “I’ve gone through a relationship and we’ve seen that relationship spiral downhill. And to invest in a relationship at this time, I don’t think it would be helpful for my son.”
“Towanda Braxton is a very nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and…no, we’re not dating.”
He adds that a simple photograph is what triggered all of the rumors, but he and Towanda are nothing more than acquaintances.
“As you see on the blogs, we were at an event. You guys know Big Tigga from the radio. He and I were hosting the Grudge Match – a red carpet event. And we took a picture together. And it just shot off from there. Reality TV, first thing you know it, it’s a big story. And one thing leads to another. But a nice lady. I got the opportunity to meet her. She’s cool people. But I got a lot going on over here. Again, my relationship is parenthood.”
What we find to be interesting, however, is the fact that Towanda has done multiple interviews since the rumors hit and not once did she ever try make it clear that they weren’t dating. Instead, she seemed to dance around the rumors like a giddy school girl, leading most of us to believe that there was something more there.
The rumor mill has been buzzing ever since word got out that Apollo Nida spent Valentine’s Day in Colombia, South Carolina and away from his wife and mother of his two sons, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks. According to reports, not only did Apollo spend Valentine’s Day apart from his wife, but he was also spotted spending time with another woman the very same night.
Apollo recently responded to the rumors and he’s denying most of the story. He confirmed to TMZ that he was, in fact, in South Carolina on Valentine’s Day, but only because he was scheduled to host an event. As for the woman that several eyewitnesses say they spotted him with, he insists that it was totally platonic. He claims that the woman was just his friend’s sister who works as a bartender at The Palace 2, which is the club that he was paid to appear at that night.
He added that he is absolutely faithful and committed to his wife, Phaedra, so any rumors being spread about sex tapes, nude photos and pregnant mistresses are completely false. Though I’m sure his RHoA co-star Kenya Moore would probably disagree with those statements, since she has insinuated in the past that Apollo is a known adulterer around the Atlanta area.
“We all know his reputation around Atlanta,” the former pageant queen told Arsenio Hall last month. “He likes his extracurricular activities.”
Since there’s no actual proof of this, it’s all hearsay. So, I guess that’s that—for now at least.
At this point it seems a little obvious that T.I. and his wife, Tiny, are experiencing a few marital problems. But unfortunately, they’ve been using social networking sites as an arena to sound off. And that of course, is never a good thing. Their latest debate came after T.I. apparently grew fed up with Tiny’s decision to flaunt her goodies on Instagram.
The “What You Know About That” rapper reposted his wife’s latest booty-bearing photo with a caption that reads:
“You have so much more going for u other than you a**. Although it is magnificent, I think u should spend just as much time showcasing those other things as u do ya #booty…Awesome pic tho. Luv.”
Tiny eventually responded:
“I wasn’t showing off my a** in this pic it was about my waist…u just looking at the ass bae! U no I wasn’t saying getting my sh*t together about my a** now don’t u? But glad u like it bae.”
Though he called her out with “luv,” this is probably something that could’ve been handled behind the scenes and not for the world to see. Whatever the situation is, we’re really hoping that they can work through their issues.
Considering the severity of the charges being brought against “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Apollo Nida and the lengthy prison stint that he could possibly be forced to serve if found guilty, it’s not really all that surprising that rumors regarding his wife, Phaedra Parks, wanting to jump ship are already circulating. Though he has yet to comment on the charges being brought against him, he was quick to nip those divorce rumors in the bud.
It all started when women’s lifestyle site Sister 2 Sister tweeted an article, while questioning whether or not Phaedra and Apollo had already separated.
Well, that I guess that settles it, for now anyway. In many marriage ceremonies couples vow to stick with one another for better or worse. If this isn’t worse, we’re not sure what is.
Speaking of “Love & Hip Hop,” remember a few weeks ago when we told you about those rumors that newlyweds Peter Gunz and Amina Buddafly were expecting their first child together? Well, it’s looking more and more like those rumors may be true. HipHollywood recently caught up with the singer-turned-reality-star and though she didn’t confirm or deny the rumors, she encouraged fans to tune in to the season finale and reunion show to find out whether or not she’s expecting.
“Ooh, there’s a big, big rumor out there about that. I can’t really talk about that yet because that’s something that’s going to be revealed on the show still,” she said. “People have to stay tuned and watch to see really what’s going on.”
I know, I know, sort of a shameless plug to keep viewers intrigued. But if the rumors weren’t true wouldn’t she just say that? Most non-pregnant celebs get pretty bent out of shape over pregnancy rumors. What she did speak on, however, was the status of her relationship with Peter. During last week’s episode the two got into it when Peter revealed that he wasn’t really looking to have more children anytime soon. Despite their feud, Amina says they’re still together.
“What I can tell you is that we’re still together. We’re still married.”
As we can see, they definitely have their share of problems, but she assured her interviewer that she and Peter are committed to working through those issues.
“It’s rocky but we’re working it out. I love him.”
Oh, and in case you were concerned that the reunion show would be an absolute snooze fest, Amina insists that it’s going to be insane.
“The reunion show is going to be crazy. We taped it a few weeks back and it’s just madness, oh my God. I encourage everyone to watch it because it’s entertaining. It’s going to be entertaining for everyone. A lot of surprises and craziness.”
It’s going to be pretty interesting if in fact Amina is expecting, considering how Peter feels about having more children right now. Are you looking forward to seeing the rest of the season?
Earlier this month we told you that rapper The Game was being courted by VH1 to participate in some capacity in the debut season of “Love & Hip Hop LA.” Since The Game jumped into world of reality TV as a package deal with “Marrying The Game” co-star and on-again, off-again fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, some naturally assumed that Tiffney would also be joining the cast of “Love & Hip Hop LA” with him. It turns out those assumptions were wrong.
“I cannot confirm this [Game's LHHLA involvement] as this is not something that Tiffney is involved in,” Tiffney’s publicist told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite. “There is no confirmation of any shows involving my client at this time.”
This isn’t completely surprising, as it looks like Tiffney and The Game have broken up, yet again. If you recall, earlier this month we told you that the former G-Unit rapper attacked Tiffney’s friend and fellow reality star, Tami Roman, via Instagram. According to his posts, Tami was to blame for the demise of their relationship.
“I hope you and that d*ke b**ch blue burn in hell for ruining my family!!!!!” he wrote beneath one of Tami’s photos.”Ya’ll f**king with the wrong ni**a!!!”
“Go ahead and block me & erase this b**ch!!!” he continued. “That ain’t gonna change nothing or what I”m about to do!”
It’s still unclear exactly what The Game believes Tami has done to “ruin” his family and Tiffney’s rep declined to comment on his outburst.
“At this time I have no comment. Tiffney is really trying to continue on her positive endeavors and not feed into negativity and rumors.”
So much for that. Do you thin Tiffney would’ve been a good fit for “Love & Hip Hop LA”?
