Dida Ritz and Latrice Royale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” brilliantly recreate Nene Leakes and Sheree Whitfield’s famous falling out on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Some of the most creative shade throwing I’ve seen in a while. Next episode suggestion: Sheree’s infamous fight with the party planner, Anthony. I think Dida can serve up some “Who gon’ check me boo?” realness. [WOW]
In a “Glee” episode plagued with cheesy as hell plot lines (Mr. Shue wants Finn to be his best man? Coach Beiste got married in Vegas? What?), last night’s highlight was Nene Leakes as tough-talking synchronized swimming coach, Roz Washington. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am happy to report that the “Real Housewife of Atlanta” star rocked her cameo with wry one-liners like, “If you pee in my pool, I will kill you.” You can watch a clip of her scene here. I hope we see her again this season. I like watching her act better than I like watching her act like herself. What did you think of Nene’s acting debut?
You know you want to watch Wendy Williams and Gabourey Sidibe re-enact the wig-snatching incident between Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leaks on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” So what are you waiting for? Your boss isn’t looking, I promise. [Bossip] Keep reading »
Last week, we showed you the long-awaited catfight between “Real Houswives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes and former “View” co-host Star Jones on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Things got nasty as the two ladies went after each other in the boardroom. “I will take you down,” NeNe said. “You pressed the last button in me Ms. Star Jones.” The two said their beef was over “Apprentice” politics. But there might be more to it than that. Rumor has it that NeNe is dating Al Reynolds. Yes, as in Star’s ex husband, to whom she was married for four years. Keep reading »
“Celebrity Apprentice” has been hyping this girl fight between Nene Leakes and Star Jones all season. I’ve been watching and waiting, but was starting to think it was never going to happen. But OH. It went down on Sunday night. Nene went totally batty on Star in front of Donald Trump and the Biosilk/Chi executive. Awkward! Cringeworthy! My thoughts, after the jump. Keep reading »
Obviously, I will be rooting for NeNe Leakes in the soon-to-start season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Donald Trump has announced the new cast, and it’s pretty awesome: in addition to NeNe, there’s Meatloaf, David Cassidy, Dionne Warwick, Latoya Jackson, Jose Canseco, Richard Hatch of “Survivor,” Garey Busey, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Rinna, Niki Taylor and Star Jones. But what’s even more interesting is who Trump didn’t pick. “We turned down 35 to 40 people,” Trump says. “We really qualify people.” [People]
So who got the big N-O? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
I was thinking Cynthia was the “normal” one on this season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Until she whipped out her “friend contract.” After NeNe’s fight with her fiancee, Cynthia decided to give NeNe the equivalent of one of those folded notes you get passed to you in second grade. “Do you want to be friends? Circle ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or ‘maybe.’” It had some business about how NeNe and she can’t ever go to bed mad with each other and, should one of them decide to terminate the friendship, they must get a notarized letter from President Obama. Does Obama know he’s on female friendship patrol? Or better question: has anyone ever heard of a friend contract before? Is that a thing and I just don’t know about it? Cynthia claimed it was a joke, but now I can’t help but think of her as Single Black Female. Keep reading »
We were shocked and awed to learn that comedienne Fran Drescher will be launching her own hour-long talk show on Fox after Thanksgiving. It’s not that Fran’s not funny (I mean, what’s not to love about “The Nanny”?) — and her story of beating uterine cancer is inspiring. But, really, who wants to listen to Drescher’s nasal tone and snorty laugh for an hour?
We would like to appeal to Fox’s head honchos to please not make this a reality. Instead, after the jump, we offer 8 other potential talk show hosts who are less nasal and more crazy than Fran. Keep reading »
