Phaedra Parks Is Now Available For Pet Funerals

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is back, minus Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton, plus Kenya Moore and Porsha Willams-Stewart. Don’t try to do the math, it still equals all the drama one could ever hope for.

“Gallery Girls” Recap: Of Mice And Middle-Aged Men

A friend of mine noted that, “Watching ‘Gallery Girls’ and attempting to determine which ‘girl’ has the least redeeming qualities is, frankly, exhausting.” I say, that’s a trick question because they’re ALL the least redeeming.

5 Reasons You’re Going To Love “Gallery Girls”

I’ll admit it. I was pretty skeptical of Bravo’s newest reality confection, “Gallery Girls.” Although I do love a good “Real Housewife” or two, it’s not exactly life-changing television.

Before she was big on wigs, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak was big on hairspray. Bravo released some pictures of her back in the day.
