Real Housewives of ATL Brawl!

Filed Under: Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leaks, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Dwight Ebanks, Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, all got into it recently. Radar Online reports:

“Dwight was at the hotel for what he thought was going to be a casual meeting,” the source tells “But instead the producers had their own plans as they brought in Kim and NeNe to confront Eubanks about several issues, only for Dwight to call them out. NeNe and Kim came storming into the hotel and got straight in Dwight’s face, accusing him of spreading lies about them and making up rumors.

“It was absolutely crazy! NeNe and Kim were both screaming at him, and he gave back as good as he got. Dwight started yelling at NeNe that she was nothing but a common prostitute and that she had hooked up with a married man, and he totally trash talked Kim too.

“NeNe lost her temper and attacked Dwight with a chair, breaking off a leg and Kim threw a vase at him! It was like a scene out of some crazy movie!” Security rushed over and had to split them up, then NeNe and Kim stormed out.”

Show insider, Jonathan Jaxson tells that there has also been word that a lot of the establishments in Atlanta have not been welcoming of the cast and have banned them from their venues, making it hard for producers to film the show. Source

Really people? How old are you? Publicity, fame, money or whatever…this is an epic fail.

Nene and Greg Leakes in Trouble

Written on March 24, 2010 by

Filed Under: NeNe Leaks, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

NeNe Leakes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and her husband Greg Leakes, have been having some issues since her son Bryson got arrested on a drug charge.

A source said, “The arrest really upset NeNe as she knows her son is hanging out with a bad crowd after he dropped out of University and started working as a club promoter in Atlanta.

“It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband Greg Leakes who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.

“NeNe perceives herself as a real socialite in Atlanta and she does not like the fact that Bryson’s arrest generated bad publicity for her and she is worried that he might get into more trouble in the future.

“It might make for good material for the new Housewifes series but the reality is that it has put a lot of pressure on her relationship with her husband and she’s really worried that her son is falling in with a bad crowd.”


He’s grown now…sometimes you gotta let your kids fall on their face. I think Bryson needs and extra hard brand of tough love.

Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has a new boo and it’s not who you’d think. She’s currently dating DJ Tracy Young…a lady. The two have been together for three months and stepped out fir the first time as a couple at the Blacks’ Annual Gala in Miami this past weekend.

They met when Tracy worked on the remix of Kim’s song “Tardy For the Party.”

A source says, “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they’ve been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.” Source

This has shady written all over it. I think Kim is just trying to keep it spicy for the cameras. Unless Tracy is loaded I don’t think this is gonna last very long.

Riding off the coattails of the successful Real Housewives of Atlanta series, Evolution Media wants to produce a show following men in Atlanta.

The casting agent who does RHOA, Princess Banton-Lofters, is producing and casting the project tentatively called Boys Club: ATL.

“We’d obviously admired from afar what Princess did with The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and when she approached us with this idea, it was a slam dunk” said Evolution President Douglas Ross. “Men’s lives are as dramatic and interesting as their female counterparts.’” Source

Oh dear…this sounds like a hot sweaty mess…excuse me whilst I set my DVR.

Frederick Richardson, the man suspected in the murder of Ashley A.J. Jewell, has been released on $10K bail.

He was initially denied bail. But after a coroner suggested AJ may have died due to complications of Sickle Cell, he was issued a bond. Charges will be dropped if Sickle Cell is found to be the actual cause. Source

I kinda feel like he should go to jail regardless. Like if someone died due to complications from…lets sa a preexisting brain trauma, but someone beat said wheelchair bound invalid…then they should BURN!

DeShawn Just Can’t Get a Break

DeShawn Snow, who was on the first season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta (but was booted from being boring) is still not having any luck in the fund raising business. On the show she threw a fundraiser to benefit her DeShawn Snow Foundation. Hundreds of guests showed but none of them came out of pocket to bid on the jewelry she was auctioning.

Well she just held another fund raiser for an all girl school in Atlanta and according to the school they haven’t heard from her or received any donated funds. The consultant on the fund raising committee said that it wasn’t DeShawns fault the benefit flopped and instead blames the economy. Source

Damn, that’s sad. She’s just trying to raise a few bucks. Maybe she needs to work on her schmoozing skills or get some more qualified people to back her cus this makes no sense.

6th Atlanta Housewife Speaks Out

Dwight Eubanks, the self professed 6th housewife of Atlanta sat down with the Atlanta Journal Constitution Home Finder for an interview. Here’s what he said:

On his fashion:

“I don’t have any ‘Dwrongs’ in my wardrobe! My girlfriend Britanica Stewart says I’m a slave to fashion and that’s true,” admits Eubanks. “If it’s beautiful [and] feels good I have to have it. My mother was the first of 14, she [took] care of her siblings, she pressed their blue jeans [and] shirts. When she had kids she [stressed] that she was not pressing no more blue jeans! We were not allowed to wear blue jeans. Even when I’m cutting the grass I’m pulled together, I’m a southern gentleman.”

On his boudoir:

“The bedroom is my element. That bed was inspired by my grandmother,” says Eubanks. “We were so poor growing up she never threw away her mattresses. As one mattress got old she would just stack them. That was the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. This bed is me still trying to get that comfort from sleeping in my grandmother’s bed. I just keep stacking them on, there are four mattresses and a box spring in that bed. It puts me closer [to] the Lord when I’m sleeping. He protects me . . . The Japanese are short people, they would need a ladder to climb up on this bed. You can do a lot of things on a bed high up like that,” muses Eubanks, “especially with the poles, you just have to use your imagination. It’s wonderful!”

On his pool:

“That pool has done lots of entertaining. My rule is no swimwear in the pool.” Source

Oh Dwight…you are so delicious and inappropriate. How I love thee.

A.J. Suffered From Sickle Cell

Written on October 16, 2009 by

Filed Under: R.I.P., The Real Housewives of Atlanta

It’s now believed that sickle cell anemia may have contributed to the death of Ashley “A.J.” Jewell. AJ, the ex-fiancé of singer and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Kandi Burruss, died after a fight at a strip club and was afflicted with the disorder that inhibits oxygen flow to tissues in the body.

“Rose says it’s most likely that Jewell was worked up from the fight — and because of his condition, it’s probable that he couldn’t replenish the oxygen he lost during the incident … which the Dr. says could have fatal consequences,” TMZ reported. Source

It’s so sad to think that had he not had sickle cell, he’d still be here today to take care of his children.

Kim Zolciak is the latest celeb to commit to show the public her hair. Model/host Tyra Banks, revealed her real hair on her talk show in September. TV personality Wendy Williams also said that her audience will see her real hair at some point soon. Now Kim, a bonified ‘wiggy’ will be taking it all off.

Kim says that people actually love her real hair and she’ll be revealing it in a photo spread with a big magazine. Source

I bet her real hair looks better than those shiny, doll hair wigs that she wears. Was anyone watching the last episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?’ This heifer says that she wears a new $430 wig each day. She’s a lie and a wink and her booty stink. Just dumb.

Real Housewives Pissed About Syndication Deal

Filed Under: Broke as a Joke, The Real Housewives of Atlanta


The Real Housewives of Atlanta are hot with anger. The Real Housewives franchise has just been given the green light for syndication on NBC and BET. Since they’re not considered actors because they’re reality starts, the don’t get ANY of the residuals.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta are sounding off.

RHOA: “This is some bull sh*t. We’ve been fighting their as* for the longest to keep the show from going to syndication without us making a dime … Damn, we’re not getting a dime and they’re making all the money… WOW … They can play the show forever and we will never get a check, that ain’t right…”

The syndicated shows will begin airing on NBC next fall. Source

Oh dear. I say they put NeNe on the case. That chick will make sure they, or at least she, gets their paper.

Kim Talks to Essence

Written on October 10, 2009 by

Filed Under: The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Kim Zolciak had a sit down with Essence where she talks about the death of A.J. Jewell, ex fiance of fellow Atlanta housewife, Kandi, and her life as a home wrecker.

ESSENCE.COM: So what’s the scoop? Are you or aren’t you still engaged to Big Papa?
ZOLCIAK: I am not engaged to Big Papa! I got a commitment ring last year and so when I got this new ring, I was led to believe that his divorce was final. Who gives someone a massive rock and makes this commitment if he wasn’t serious? I found out that I was still on the same merry-go-round. If there is one thing I have discovered about myself from doing this show it is that I’m just far too trusting. I’m actually dating someone new and I’m extremely happy. He’s my age, from California and cute as a button. I gave Papa almost four years of my life, so now I’m just trying to move on.

ESSENCE.COM: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from that experience?

ZOLCIAK: I need to learn not to take everything at face value. I believe everything that people tell me. I wanted to believe that he was going through the steps for us to be together. I’m not a home wrecker because my husband did it to me. I would never intentionally do that to someone. I was planning my future and so excited because he was the love of my life. But as time went on, I started to wonder, why is this taking so long? I realized that I needed to really sit down and figure this out.

ESSENCE.COM: So there’s no chance you two will reconcile?

ZOLCIAK: I will never go back. When I’m done, I’m done. I have no desire to have anything further with him.

ESSENCE.COM: How is Kandi doing? Have you spoken to her?

KIM ZOLCIAK: I spoke with her mom and texted her just to let her know I’m here. I was one of the first to find out and I called the other ladies. Everybody has been fantastic but it’s unfortunate that it takes a tragedy to bring us all together. We were able to put all our stuff on the back burner and come together for Kandi. It’s not something that I ever thought would happen, no matter how tragic the situation.

ESSENCE.COM: What was your interaction with A.J like?

ZOLCIAK: He actually called me last week and I never called him back, which sucks. I adored him. He was such a great guy. He was actually with Big Papa the night I got engaged. I hated that people have this bad impression of him because he had so many children. He was a great father and he was great with Riley [Kandi's 7-year-old daughter] and he loved Kandi. Source

The definition of a home wrecker is someone who carries on with a married man when they are fully aware he is married. Oh Kim…shhhhhhhh. No more talky talky. MMKay?

Former Real Housewife Gets Her Own Show

Deshawn Snow of the first season of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ is getting her own reality show.  Deshawn was dropped from the cast for not being controversial or confrontational enough.

Her new show “Second Chance” will give contestants another opportunity to find success, greatness and regain their hope and confidence.

In addition she has an animated series she’s also shopping around called ‘Little Shawnie.’ Source

Good for her.  I agree she was way to boring for a show like Real Housewives. But I think she’ll do fine in this new genre of reality.  That is if no one notices that there already was a show with the same premise called ‘Starting Over.’ I know I’m not the only one who watched.

NeNe Leaks of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ says that she’s not ashamed of her past as a stripper.  She writes in her new book, ‘Never Make the Same Mistake Twice’, “[I stripped] for the sake of my son, and to restore my confidence in myself. My son was in private school, his father wasn’t chipping in for pull-ups or food, I had no job and no money coming in, the rent was past due, and the super told me and my roommate that our condo owner was about to put us out. It was about survival. What difference does it make if I danced or not? Is the sun going to stop shining? Is my past taking food out of your mouth?”  Source

I with agree NeNe.  What’s the big deal anyway?
