Remote Control: What You’ll Want to Watch The Week Of August 10th 2009

I live in a 400-square-foot apartment, yet my television is four feet wide. Hey, don’t judge me—you know you have a TV problem, too. Even though it’s gorgeous out, and you should probably be outside soaking up the vitamin D, here are the shows you’ll definitely want to catch this week. Things start off slow, but pick up thanks to Bravo and amazing new episodes of “NYC Prep” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” By Friday, it’ll be a full-out boob-tube orgy with the premiere of “Degrassi Goes to Hollywood,” (FINALLY!) “Mad Men,” and “My Antonio.” Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: I Don’t Know Who To Believe

I’m so confused, y’all. Last night’s episode was all about the feud brewing between Sheree and Kim, and the one simmering between Kim, Lisa and NeNe. And I can’t tell who is lying, who’s acting extra for the cameras, and who really should be friends. After the jump, I recap what went down in The ATL when “The Real Housewives” tried to discuss their drama. Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”: What’s Going To Happen In Season Two?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be back tomorrow night, y’all, and we, meaning Amelia and I, can’t wait. This season, all five of the women, including newcomer Kandi Burruss, get in on the dramz. I’m talking hair-pulling, name-calling, home-foreclosing draaaama. After the jump, I speculate on what will happen in season two based on watching the preview videos a bazillion times. Keep reading »

“Real Housewife” NeNe Pens An Autobiography

In the downtime between the first and second season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” NeNe Leakes, who you may remember as Anderson Cooper’s biggest fan, spent time writing an autobiography. The memoir, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way, hits bookshelves August 11 and is destined to be amazing. While the Amazon description is a little dry (”NeNe charts her journey from family black sheep to single mother to making good and realizing her dreams”), there is mention of juicy gossip hidden in the 240 pages. Specifically, it’s alleged that NeNe dishes on fellow “Housewife” Kim Zolciak’s stripper past! Before she became the whitest-housewife-who-is-black-on-the-inside, Kim supposedly performed in Atlantic City under the name “Barbie.” Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of July 27th 2009

This week is shaping up for awesomeness all around in TV land. Jillian will finally pick her dude on “The Bachelorette,” though we have a sneaking suspicion that it will be Reid rather than the two she’s kept around for the finale. Diddy returns to make a band—this time, his own. “More to Love” and “Holidate” will both premiere. NeNe’s braless ta-ta’s return to Bravo in “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And Shark Week 2009, kicks into gear! Keep reading »

Get Ready For “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season Two

NeNe’s gonna meet her real father! Sheree’s gonna get evicted! And she shoots guns! And she pulls at Kim’s wig! The promo video for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season two is reality TV heaven packaged into 30 seconds. It definitely looks like the Atlanta ladies are bringing their A-game to compete with the “prostitution whores” of New Jersey. I can’t wait to “watch what happens” in exactly 20 days when the next season premieres. Keep reading »

Who IS Kandi Burruss, Anyway?

Kandi Burruss will replace boring DeShawn Snow on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for season two. Bravo producers fired DeYawn because she’s “too human for a circus show” and that “because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn’t think that I would fit in,” she told Essence.com. Holding her own against NeNe and Sheree seems like a tall order for Kandi to fill, but we think this born and raised Atlanta native knows the ins and outs of Atlanta’s social elite and will definitely give these women some competition. And as a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter, maybe she can help Kim Zolciak with that ill-fated singing career. Keep reading »

    Another “Real Housewives” Arrest And A Few More Rap Sheets

    The talent of “The Real Housewives of New York” seem like the classiest and most sophisticated of the housewives bunch. I mean, LuAnn deLesseps is writing a book on etiquette and Alex McCord’s sons speak like 15 languages. Plus, the women are actually immersed in New York’s high society. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have their legal woes too. Kelly Killoren Bensimon, the newest addition to “The Real Housewives of New York” cast, gives off an air of refinery, but this former model can get down and dirty when she wants. Keep reading »
