Back in December we got word that Bravo was considering dumping NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast and replacing them with other wealthy and powerful Atlanta women.

NeNe And Kim To Be Ixnayed From “The Real Housewives”?

Some very disturbing reality TV news reached my ears this weekend, and for the first time in a month, it has nothing to do with “Jersey Shore.” According to the New York Daily News and People, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak are very close to getting pink-slipped from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Supposedly, the…

Well, the Fulton County, GA, district attorney has tentatively agreed to have A.J.’s body exhumed for a second autopsy in order to confirm that it was the disease that killed…

Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party” And More Reality Star Songcraft

When Kim Zolciak performed her single “Tardy for the Party” on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion this week, she exclaimed that her dreams had come true.

Sheree Is The Only “Housewife” To Show Any Growth

Season two of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” started off a little rocky for Sheree Whitfield. First, she launched a screaming match with Kim Zolciak inside a restaurant and tugged Kim’s famous wig on the streets of Atlanta. Then, Sheree had a rather hostile (although entertaining) altercation with a party planner. She seemed determined to…

A Funny Or Die Kim Zolciak Sings “Tardy For The Party”

This two minute video of “Kim Zolciak” singing “Tardy for the Party” is funnier than this whole season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has been. I especially love “Lady Gaga’s” appearance and her pipe insulation costume. [Funny or Die]…

Kim Zolciak’s Check Is “Tardy for the Party”

Kim Zolciak’s song “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” which was recorded during an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has been removed from iTunes because producer Don Vito still owns the copyright to the song and hasn’t been paid yet for Kim’s studio time.

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Face Their Doppelgangers

All weekend, I’ve been humming “Don’t Be Tardy To The Party.” This is the ultimate sign that I am a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” addict. So I was excited to see that BravoTV.com has posted the images of the ladies that photographer Derek Blanks shot a few weeks back. NeNe Leakes creative director for the…

She By Sheree Is Just As Crappy As We Thought It’d Be

Amelia was right to dub She by Sheree “S**t by Sheree” last year because the line, which debuted this past weekend during New York Fashion Week, really is crappy. Notice how the “audience” keeps walking by the bored models wearing the ho-hum beige pants and lace dresses that appear to have rumpled seams. None…

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: Kim Still Can’t Sing In Public

Kim has latched onto Kandi like I predicted she would. Really, I can’t blame Kim for wanting to become close to Kandi because it’s difficult to be on a show if you’re not friends with any of the other four women. Kim visited Kandi at her studio and actually convinced Kandi to produce…

“Real Housewives” Preview: NeNe Wants To Turn Kim Into A Black Woman

The producers, er, I mean NeNe has the brilliant idea to organize an alter-ego photo shoot for all the housewives. But Kim might have the biggest transformation because NeNe has decided to turn her into a black woman named Kina. We won’t meet Kina until tonight’s episode, but you know I’ll have the deets i…

Discussing Kim Zolciak’s Wig Ad Nauseum

Awkward. In this random clip, Bravo’s Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis of “Flipping Out” talk to Kim Zolciak of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” about her wig. The best moment: when Andy leans in close to try to determine where her real hair ends and the wig begins, and looks kind of like a…

Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” stopped by “The Today Show” this morning to talk shop with Ann Curry. Among some choice comments about her show, Kim revealed she’s really “not into all the drama” and that she’s “definitely embarrassed … at times” (like, when she hears herself singing, maybe?). She…

More Details On Real Housewife NeNe Leakes’ Stripper Past

During last season’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show, when Andy Cohen asked NeNe Leakes if she was a stripper in the past, she played coy and said, “Yes. I strip for my husband.” But she’s totally come clean in her memoir, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice. She was a stripper, in an upscale…

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: “I Eat Bitches Like You Everyday!”

There were some highs and some lows on the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night. The absolute best part was the neck-rolling, arm-swinging catfight, altercation, ruckus, or whatever you want to call it between Sheree and her party planner, Anthony. You see, Sheree had the not-so unique idea to…
