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?
Nene Leakes is SO OVER. Atlanta’s most entertaining Housewife by far is Phaedra Parks, the attorney, new mom, and self-described Southern belle of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” This season, Phaedra has really come into her own, delivering even more hilarious, yet inspiring quotes, all while she considers opening her own funeral home (?!), keeps her ex-con hubby Apollo in check, raises their baby Ayden, and parties with strippers. Some people — ahem, Cynthia’s cranky husband Peter — think Phaedra is dumb, but I think she’s savvy and witty. After the jump, 18 pieces of Phaedra’s amazing wisdom. Keep reading »
Did you happen to catch last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? I hope so, because it was ridiculous. RiDICKulous. Kandi threw herself a 35th birthday party and Phaedra — who has swiftly become my favorite Housewife of all time, more on that in another post — invited a special guest to entertain them. His name is Ridiculous, and he is a male stripper with a penis so big, he can suck it himself. And he does! As part of his routine! Ridiculous’s penis is so big, Bravo felt the need to blur out his bulge. Sadly, they only showed us the shocked reactions of the partygoers — not to mention uptight tantrums from Nene and Kandi’s mom — to his “performance.” I think Ridiculous seems very talented and I would be interested in reviewed his services in person some time. Call me, Phaedra. [BravoTV]
Kim Zolciak can officially join the ranks of the “Real Housewives” — the buxom blond is now a married woman! The star of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” 34, wed Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, 26, on Friday in the backyard of her Atlanta home.
Kim wore a bustier dress (naturally) covered in Swarovski crystals. She and her bridal party donned custom jewelry by Michael Raven.
“This has been the happiest day of my life,” Kim told Life & Style, who first reported the union. “It’s been perfect. It’s been a dream come true.” Read more…
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. I must say, her natural hair is impressively large. And, now that I can see her real face, it’s clear who her daughter Brielle takes after. Click through to see more pics of Kim before she was tardy for the party. [Too Fab]
All of a sudden, Kandi Koated Nights has a brand new meaning. Apparently, Kandi Burruss of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has branched out from her online talk show and has started making her own sex toy line. We won’t know much about the products in the line until the launch party, which is happening sometime in the near future, but I am crossing my fingers for lots of glitter and animal print. Whatever the toys may be, I have to give Kandi props for thinking outside the box. Thank goodness she didn’t do the expected—like bottle a perfume, or create her own clothes line, like so many castmates before her. [Huffington Post, The YBF] 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 »
I wanted to be excited that Kim Zolciak’s 13-year-old daughter Brielle actually asked her mom for a purity ring on the latest episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but the whole thing fell apart for me when she started negotiating her abstinence expiration date. 18? 19? 20? I don’t know a whole lot about abstinence rings (or abstinence), but I was under the impression that wearing one meant you were saving yourself for marriage, not for college. So just to recap, Brielle got a $3,000 diamond ring to keep her hymen intact until college. And Kim thinks this is brilliant. Am I missing something here? Do purity rings expire whenever you want them to? And … what the hell is Kim wearing? Please help me understand. Keep reading »
Oh, look, Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is engaged. She is also pregnant. And purportedly smoking. Her fiance is Kroy Biermann, a defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons, and he is 25. (Kim is 32.) Rumor has it this could lead to Kim getting her own spin-off reality show. So, you know, good luck on that. It worked for Bethenny Frankel. [Radar] Keep reading »
