Y’all know this is the real reason NeNe hates Kenya………….She can never lay it down properly like this…….Kenya is 41 right?  Don’t sleep.

 

This definitely explains the all of a sudden hate that came from nowhere.  NeNe’s  overreaction to Kenya’s tardiness was way too much, but there was also the fact that Kenya stood up at the slumber party.  That too, didn’t seem like enough for NeNe to cut Kenya and anyone that dealt with her off.  To me there seemed to be more to it than NeNe would let on….it just seemed too damn petty.  So I’m willing to bet Kenya working with Cynthia and Derek Blanks was too much for her.  We didn’t find out about the photo shoot until part 4 of the reunion.  When I saw Kenya working with Derek and Cynthia, it was like a light bulb went off.  Yes I think Nene is in hate mode.  BTW, these are from Kenya’s calendar.

 

Bye, Ashy…..literally.

I hear her attitude and her persistent ‘queen’ name calling helped out with this impromptu exit.  via and

Whisperers, holla at me.  Tell me, am I off?

atlanta exes

This summer, VH1′s “” sorority will charter a new chapter in ‘The ATL’ with the premiere of “Atlanta Exes.” As the thriving music and entertainment capital of the South, Atlanta provides the ideal backdrop and group of ex-wives for the franchise’s extension.  The cast, featuring the once significant others of an elite list of A-list men, has no shortage of fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.

Tameka raymondBTW, my Celebrity Whispers gallery will be returning

“Atlanta Exes” stars Tameka Raymond, who once enjoyed the perks and privileges that come with being married to an international music superstar, and now dedicates much of her time to the charitable foundation she started in memory of her late son Kile, interior designer to the stars Christina Johnson (ex-wife of Cee-Lo Green), and author and businesswoman Monyetta Shaw (ex-fiancee of Ne-Yo), who is busy penning a children’s book series based on the lively personality of her toddler. Also starring are entrepreneur Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of former pro football player Ray Buchanan), who co-owns a dessert catering company and also has a business that specializes in creating custom bedazzled hookah pipes, and actress, comedian, and producer Torrei Hart (ex-wife of Kevin Hart). “Atlanta Exes” premieres summer 2014 on VH1.

Let’s not forget about the Hollywood:

This Spring, be sure to catch up with the original “Hollywood Exes” when Shanna Moakler (ex-wife of Travis Barker) joins returning cast members Nicole Murphy, Mayte Garcia, Sheree Fletcher, Andrea Kelly, Jessica Canseco, and Shamicka Lawrence. Actress/model Moakler is a former Miss USA, and is perhaps best known for the 2005-06 hit MTV reality series “Meet the Barkers” which chronicled her life and that of then husband and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Her signature humor, energy, and enthusiasm are sure to shake up the dynamic amongst the women. Last season saw the ladies exploring new avenues in life, finding love, and getting into some trouble along the way. “Hollywood Exes” season 3 premieres on VH1 Wednesday, April 30 at 9:00 PM ET/ PT on VH1.

“It is exciting that the continued success of ‘Hollywood Exes’ has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” stated Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming & Production, VH1. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the ‘Exes’ brand down South was a natural evolution for VH1. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene, and we look forward to giving our viewers a look into their unique world.”

“We are thrilled that Hollywood Exes has found a loyal audience, and optimistic that the Atlanta series will do the same,” offered Pamela Healey, General Manager, Shed Media US.  “These are strong, successful women living very glamorous lives, with an entry point all of us can relate to – and answering the age-old question: what becomes of the broken hearted.”

“The key players at VH1 and Shed Media US have been nothing less than super supportive of our vision at Lynch-Dyson Entertainment,” said Vernon Lynch and Jeff Dyson. “From ‘Hollywood Exes’ and now the expansion of the franchise to ‘Atlanta Exes,’ we thank VH1 for trusting and allowing us the autonomy to cast and create our brand of ‘Reel-Good-Feel-Good’ reality programming for their network.”

“Hollywood Exes” is executive produced by Pam Healey, Lisa Shannon and Leah Hariton for Shed Media US. Vernon Lynch and Jeff Dyson for Lynch-Dyson Entertainment also serve as executive producers. Nicole Murphy is executive producer. Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, and Laurel Stier are executive producers for VH1.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: The Ladies Visit the Vineyard; Chaos Ensues

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: The Ladies Visit the Vineyard; Chaos Ensues

Okay RHOA is getting good….

The episode was definitely eventful, to sat the least. It was much better than it has been, but I digress.

Cynthia

Cynthia and Peter join R&B artist Christopher Williams and his “wife” Natalie at their venue, Bar One to celebrate their 3 year anniversary. Christopher and Natalie recently moved to the ATL. Christopher mentions that he has met with Kenya and Kandi before, but he get’s more in detail about his background with Kenya. He seems to respect her craft and her grind. Chris’ “wife’ makes it her business to mention that she knew Todd and that he dated one of her friends in the past. She mentions that Todd cheated on her friend a couple of times and he hurt her friend. She reveals that Todd knows how to get himself into situations to better himself. She actually seems to allude that he is in fact an opportunist. So damn. Peter suggest that they go over across the street, where to Cynthia’s surprise, Peter has set up a romantic set up accompanied with Chris’ baritone pipes. Yes, dude still has it.

Sidenote: I’m thinking this chick is getting in where she fits in. She is prepping herself to be cast on the show. They would definitely bring in the drama. Chuck and Mynique better watch it. I think Chris and Natalie would fit A LOT better. #TeamChrisandNatalie

Kandi

Kandi walks in while her staff is talking about the musical. Kandi informs the staff that Todd is out of the production. Todd thinks the overall plan is not organized enough for him. If you know Don Juan, you know he does not bite his tongue…..he not happy about it. The team begins to brainstorm the possibilities and finally come to a general consensus.

NeNe

NeNe arrives at Porsha’s 8000 sq ft home. Read: This has to be the dumbest purchase ever. She should have moved into something more like the place her sister was trying to get her to rent.

Anyway, NeNe wants to make amends after making Porsha cry at last weeks trunk show. Read: Let me just say that I think we have all had enough of Porsha. There’s definitely nothing to see here anymore and it’s time for a new husband and wife team. I’m sorry Porsha fans, but her time is up.

Kenya

Anyway, each week I’m sensing more and more that there is trouble brewing between Kenya and NeNe. NeNe seems to allude that Kenya is faking the funk again. Meaning, she has another fake boyfriend and I’m starting to think the same thing. Kenya organizes a gathering with her family. This is when she unveils with the idea that she is planning on having a child. She is actually planning on seeing a fertility specialist. She’s not sure that she wants to have a child with the African fellow. She not sure if she want to uproot her life and travel back and forth to Africa.

Kandi

Kandi and Todd were checking out venues for Kandi’s musical production. Kandi ‘s even checking out the acoustics, then Todd decides to help with a Jodeci rendition…..comedy ensues. Then out of the clear blue, Todd announces he’s back in on the project. He also lets her know that the planning on this production is on the shabby side when it comes to planning….no script, no venue. Kandi tells him period point blain that she would accept him back, but quitting will not be tolerated.

Cynthia – The trip to the Vinyard

Cynthia and her sister are setting up a light breakfast for the girls before they head off on a trip to the vineyard. NeNe gets there and feels Cynthia should be serving champagne…. SMH NeNe is getting so demanding and bossy to me these days.

While on the bus ride Cynthia lets the group know that a married couple named Natalie and Christopher Williams are coming along. Kenya interjects that they are not married; they are actually common law and she says it with a lot of attitude. I guess we’ll find out what’s up with that later in the game. Then Cynthia serves the group a bit of tea by telling them that Natalie described Todd as an opportunist.

Meanwhile, out of the blue Marlo starts talking about Kandi and asks if she’s still fat. Then she says, Phaedra, is fat too? Kenya adds that she looked like the jolly green giant when she shot her booty video. I think that is going to come back to haunt Marlo. Kenya doesn’t give a damn either way.

Kandi, Porshaa and Phaedra arrive late and on a separate bus. I loved Kandi’s head wrap by the way. I must try that.

Natalie arrives and meets the rest of the group. Kandi announces that she may not have a traditional wedding. Since her mom is objecting, she may just take a quick trip to the courthouse.

Marl reveals that she too eloped and Natalie jumps in and says that she and Christopher eloped as well. Kenya being Kenya intercede by saying that’s not the story she got. Kenya tells Natalie that she heard that she was merely his girlfriend or common law wife. Then Kenya oddly states she wanted to stay out of it. Hellooooooooo she started the drama.

Meanwhile they are having lunch Natalie thought it was cool or okay to bring up the fact that Todd dated her friend and he broke her heart. I mean really, the mess sounded like it was something that went on in their 20’s. I couldn’t see how this was relevant to this moment. Then this is when all heck breaks loose. Natalie and Kenya begin to go at it. Natalie tells Kenya that Chris told her some things she could blurt out, but she chose not to. Then Kenya says she can tell her some things about her man she bets that Natalie didn’t know. She adds she was on the road with him on tour. The best line of the night goes to Kenya when she said I would love to see that gift certificate….meaning, Chris and Natalie’s wedding certificate. LMAO

Kenya ends her argument with Natalie by handing her over to Kandi, by telling her she called Todd an opportunist. Kandi and her faces…LMAO. Kandi states something to the effect that Natalie thinks he dates up and she must think that she is a bad bish.

I can show you better than I can tell you. Check out the video:

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Tardy for Savannah + NeNe Reacts

Posted December 16, 2013 2:39 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Tardy for Savannah + NeNe Reacts

NeNe

Another boring episode of RHOA opens up with NeNe and Greg inside their massive walk-in closet.   Greg find his inner queen and starts trying on NeNe’s shoes and shades. She is preparing for her trip to Savannah.  NeNe is giving Greg his itinerary of what to do while she’s away with the girls for three days.

NeNe has the ladies meet her over at the clubhouse that is provided for the tenants in her complex.   NeNe lets us know that she is the only one of the ladies that has a clubhouse. This is also when I see where NeNe was going with questioning Mynique’s husband about his past dealings with Kandi and Phaedra.  I think she brought Mynique along to strike up some conflict.   Anyways, Kenya arrives first after driving an hour to get there.  Everyone was suppose to be there at 11:00am.  Even Cynthia is late.  When everyone finally arrives it is 3 hours later.  How do you plan a bus trip and arrive 3 hours late.  Seems like they were hoping to miss the bus. Three hours late?!!?? SMH  .

Kandi

Kandi goes over to Cynthia for a meeting of the minds type of get-together.  Almost immediately, Kandi starts telling Cynthia about what happened during her dress fitting. I laughed out loud when she called her aunts and her mother “the old lady gang.”   I have to say that I am so tired of this storyline.   Ms. Joyce has been given ample enough of airtime for her to perform her dramatics.   The whole-thing is just getting contrive, redundant and old.

We get to the scene where Kandi and Ms. Joyce talk.  Ms. Joyce told Kandi shoe should have had her back when it came to Carmen.  She told Kandi she felt like she was taking Camen’s side.  Then Ms. Joyce lays down the doosey that she and “the old lady gang” were just joking.  Then Kandi goes in on Ms. Joyce, but she does it in  a respectful manner.  Ms. Joyce tells Kandi that she done with worrying about her business.

 

 

Phaedra

Ms. Joyce goes to see Phaedra for a consultation on prenuptial agreements.  Ayden is visiting with his mom when Joyce comes in.  Phaedra asked his to say hello to Ms. Joyce, but he was not having it.  Phaedra then tries coaxing him into speaking with a treat.  He tells his mom something like, you can keep your treat because I am not speaking to this woman.  That was another laugh out loud moment for me.  The boy has been here before.  Too funny, but I’ve digressed.

Ms. Joyce starts the meeting pretty straight forward and tells Phaedra she wants some advice on KANDI”S prenup.  Where do they do that at right?   Phaedra tries to convince Ms. Joyce that Kandi is about her business and she is not stupid when it comes to her money.   Ms. Joyce then asks Phaedra why she introduced them……Why would you put two short people with big heads together?  You don’t introduce people to each other because they’re cute.  She wont be going to the wedding. blah blah blah blah  It is at this point where I feel this is becoming contrived.  The topic was just silly and baseless.  Phaedra kept her cool intact.

Kenya

Not only so we catch Kenya packing for her trip to Savannah, she is also packing heat.   I can’t even blame her.  Every single woman living alone needs to have one.  I’m sorry, but she needs to return that ugly booty she bought.

Porsha

Porsha and Lauren are at Gregory’s shopping for her trip to Savannah.  She is greeted by name by a salesperson who is obviously on commission.  The first thing she gives Porsha is a pair of gladiator pumps that retail for $7,000.   She chooses a cheaper pair of booties that were just ugly to me, for 3000….. I think.   Be reminded that Porsha gets $5000 a month for spousal support.  Those shoes should have stayed at the damn store.

RHOA: Kandi Breaks Down, NeNe Addresses Head Doctor Comment

RHOA: Kandi Breaks Down, NeNe Addresses Head Doctor Comment

Well Kandi’s wedding dress fitting didn’t go as planned. Ms. Joyce didn’t feel Carmen should b there for the simple fact that she doesn’t like her. We all know Ms. Joyce is over protective, but I didn’t like the way Carmen handled her. She was disrespectful. Kandi should have put Carmen in her place. If Kandi doesn’t disrespect her mother what makes it okay for her friends to do it? I know Ms. Joyce was wrong for tripping like that, but Carmen knows better than anyone that Ms. Joyce has lost a child before and her over protectiveness could stem from that. Or it could stem from watching her go through the drama with Riley’s father. Calling her a fool??? Nuh uh!!!! She stepped over boundaries.  Funky Dineva knew better, Fantasia knew better and I know better.

I have a lot of respect for Kandi for putting her mother on a pedestal, but I also wish Ms. Joyce would try a lot harder to let Kandi make her own choices and mistakes; if any.  You really can’t learn without experience and mistakes. I’m not saying Todd is a mistake either. He really hasn’t done anything wrong. I wish Ms. Joyce one day realizes that Kandi is great a handling her life and trust her more. I mean she doesn’t seem to give Kandi much credit for the choices that she has already made.  I love how and I soooo get it.

Kandi was on WWHL and revealed that her mother isn’t speaking to her.  Remember that show is live RHOA’s episodes actually happened months ago.  Kandi and Todd eloped, so who knows why they aren’t speaking?  Poor Kandi…..

NeNe

IDK what NeNe as trying to do to Phaedra.  NeNe is too old for that crap.  If she was a head doctor 20 years ago, she isn’t one now.  She’s a wife and mother of two children.  That was too messy and silly for more words and that’s all I will say on it. NeNe tries to clear it u on .  I like NeNe, but that was wrong.

NeNe

A hit dog always holla! I never said I knew in school. I mean why would I say that? She’s 21 years old and I’m 121 years old, right? I’m sure that’s what she would want the world to think. Hit your rewind button! I didn’t say I knew Phaedra was “The Head Doctor,” I said it was a rumor! We have all heard rumors about somebody we didn’t go to school with. It wasn’t said with malicious intent, but it was said. I’m definitely a jokester, but the one thing I don’t practice is lying.
This is the show we signed up for! Don’t get new now! I can’t count the number of times Phaedra has lied about my character. It works like this: don’t ever think you can dish on me and I can’t do the same to you.

Phaedra called into WWHL and said that NeN has apologized for her comments and sh has accepted her apology.

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Miss Joyce Threatens Todd

Posted December 2, 2013 4:14 PM By Deirdre B Pride
the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-cast

 

Phaedra
Phaedra is headed to Alabama for her mortuary study group. Apollo bends downs to give Phaedra goodbye kiss to which Phae responds with, “You know I’m not speaking to you.”
Feeling the possibility of being out in the cold this winter, Apollo drives over to The Bailey Agency/ Bar One warehouse, to get advice from his buddy Peter. Apollo tells Peter he told Phaedra he could have smashed Kenya, but he didn’t. Peter then tells him where he messed up at. He tells Apollo that he should have said, I only want you on this dick instead.
Sidenote: Did you notice that now Apollo says that Kenya didn’t say she wanted to have sex and perform fellatio verbatim. He says he could just tell she wanted to. He says something like you know when a woman wants it you can tell. How did he get to the feeling that she wanted to suck his paynis? Something just ain’t right you guys.

Kandi
Kandi reveals that Ms Joyce thinks that her long time friend Carmen has got with Todd behind her back. Carmen tells Kandi she needs to get her mother in order. She even suggests that she Kandi has nothing to do with her mother if she can’t get some act right.
Todd arrives and Kandi she starts talking about her mom, who, in his absence, has been saying that feels that Todd is an opportunist. Kandi’s mom arrives for dinner sans Riley. Ms. Joyce wants to know why there aren’t any pictures of her up? Then she tells him the engagement ring he gave her should have been a Christmas gift because it looked too cheap looking to be an engagement ring.
Ms. Joyce tells Todd using slanted versus from Marvin Gaye and Tammy Terrel’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, to get her point across, telling him she got her eyes on his ass.  We can all agree that Ms. Joyce is keeping a watchful eye over Kandi’s money.
Kenya
Kenya and Miss Lawrence are at Kenya’s new home. They commence to performing an exorcism or something to ward of evil spirits. These spirits included Walter the tow truck driver.  *Sigh*…so extra.  I wish she would stop giving this man relevance.
Cynthia
Cynthia and Peter meet Noel’s boyfriend and his mom during a visit. Talks to NeNe about Noel dating a boy named Arthur. NeNe tells her that Noel is only 13 and is too young to date and to stop trying to be her friend. True, true….
Porsha
Porsha looks at a new apartment with her sister and her mom. Porsha reveals she isn’t ready to live alone and wants to stay with her mom for a longer period of time.

Next week Ms. Joyce starts a fight with Kandi’s friend Carmen. Carmen looks and sounds like she is not for Ms. Joyce BS and has no problem telling her so when she deems it appropriate. You gotta admit that Ms. Joyce is the only one giving us life this season. Count me in for next weeks dramatics.

Ms. Joyce tells Todd exactly how she feels about him.

Porsha thinks she wants to stay with mom

Kenya Denies Seeing Apollo in LA and Offering Fellatio

Posted November 26, 2013 3:16 PM By Deirdre B Pride
Kenya Moore Evicted

Kenya Denies Seeing Apollo in LA and Offering Fellatio

And I believe her and let me tell you why.   Quit rolling your eyes and read on.

Damn it, I deleted this episode trying to clear space on my DVRa’.  That sad, I’m recollecting the best I can

First off, lets refer to the texts.  Kenya was more than willing to offer up visual proof to their conversation, that he himself initiated.  He lied when he said she initiated it.  Kandi only found one text she deemed inappropriate, when she closed part of a conversation with “babes.”  I call people babes all the time.  Means nothing!!!   It’s just like saying hun, sweetie or doll…..(to me *shrugs*)

Then you look at Apollo, who doesn’t even want to talk about it; not even to his wife!??!?  That’s when Phaedra seemed to have caught him in lies.  Something is up and we will see more next episode.  She went from a “Southern Belle” to a Southern angry black woman….*honey flipped the script like Sybil.*   Did you hear Phae Phae when she got into the car?  The way she called Kenya a bitch was so hood.  We never hear the real Phaedra pop off like that…….NEVER.  She tries to play this prim and proper role.   In the next episode she’s not even speaking to him and wont even ride in the same car with him.

Now this is a question for both…..why did he go to a different hotel?  If Kenya wasn’t there, why did he have to go to a different hotel?  Kenya alludes that he went to another hotel because he was probably there with someone else and didn’t want her to know.  Did he hear that Kenya was in LA and then tried to play damage control?  Like he wanted to keep himself posted on her whereabouts so that she didn’t see him with whomever.  IDK, but something is definitely not adding up.

I love Kandi, but she needs to try to stay out of it.  I guess someone needs to stir up the storyline, since Kenya and Phae Phae will never be able ot hold a meaningful conversation. Oh  and Kandi, get rid of that red hair.  I don’t care if it’s just on the ends sometimes either…..Get rid of it.

Apollo and Kirk………reality snakes.

WHEN LIES GO LEFT

Lie #1: I offered fellatio to Apollo.
Lie #2: I initiated the texts.
Lie #3: I saw Apollo in LA
Lie #4: Everything that comes out of either of or Apollo’s mouths.

Let’s get into shall we? As you can see from last night’s episode, Apollo could not get his lies straight. LIE #1: Phaedra told everyone (, , and ) on several occasions that I offered fellatio to Apollo. Once again, Phaedra launched a slander campaign to paint me as a whore. Kandi confirmed the texts were platonic. She looked like the fool she is when Apollo actually said point blank that I never offered sex of any kind to him.

While I don’t offer up much proof, It is apparent that something is wrong with Apollo’s story.  Here’s Kenya’s rant.

DIGGING A DEEPER DITCH

Lie #2: I didn’t initiate the texts. Kandi confirmed this when she read them for herself. When I called Apollo out for initiating texts with me from the reunion, everyone, including him, took it to mean they were sexual in nature. From that, he lashed out with an outrageous fable of me stalking him in LA and him changing hotels. When Phaedra continued to batter him for the so-called truth last night, she only painted him in a corner. Only more lies ensued. Apollo could not keep his story straight. The truth is I have never seen Apollo outside of the show. I’ve never seen him in Los Angeles or any other city. The texts also prove that. Apollo is a liar just like his lie-awyer wife. Phaedra should threaten to cancel his allowance if she wants to get the truth. He’ll sing like a bird.

Me:  Whoa…..Apollo has an allowance?  Is she joking?  And people are always talking about Kandi having a kept man.  I do hope that Phae got a prenup.  I give them one maybe 2 years tops.
