The Real Housewives of Atlanta

'Real Housewives': Sheree's Lawyer Schooled by Her Ex in Court (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 14th 2011 6:28AM
'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'With a new lawyer in tow, Sheree Whitfield walked into the courtroom for her child support battle with her ex-husband Bob on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo). Phaedra Parks was a little wary of representing Sheree because she hadn't fully paid two previous attorneys (she didn't feel they did a good enough job).

After convincing Sheree to not flaunt her wealth with her style in court, Parks was ready. It turned out to be good advice, because Bob was not only dressed way down, he was there representing himself. Parks said this was to emphasize how much poorer he is -- Bob was petitioning to lower his child support expectations.

NeNe Leakes Admits 'Housewives' Drama Is Draining, But She Can't Quit It (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 7th 2011 8:00PM
It's not everyday that NeNe Leakes appears on TV in a reflective mood, getting along well with a group of women. But Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star dropped the fiestiness that's become her reality TV trademark, and had an honest discussion about some of the perils of the 'Housewives' genre.

Aisha Tyler had a few questions about the constantly combative, drama-drenched nature of the show. "Doesn't it get exhausting, fighting all the time?" she asked. "Very exhausting, it's very negative, I'm so tired," Leakes replied. "It's very entertaining though, don't ya think?" Tyler asked the logical follow-up question. "It's entertaining, but do you ever feel like, 'I don't want to do this anymore?'" Leakes exhaled and thought for a moment, and then admitted, "Sometimes, yeah."

Sheree Makes One Last Plea for Child Support on 'Real Housewives' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 4:30AM
'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'Child support is a pretty simple concept. If you break up with the parent of your child and they are the primary caretaker, then you need to help out financially. You helped make the kid, you help take care of it. But, as we saw on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 9PM ET on Bravo), some people just don't get it.

In the case of Bob, he struggled to comprehend why he needed to pay Sheree anything because she was doing okay financially. In his mind, because he provides a home for them when they're with him, his obligations are covered. This may be true if the kids lived with him 50 percent of the time.

Or if it wasn't Sheree providing most of their necessities like clothing and food. When she told him her next recourse was the courts, Bob said, "Do it." So she did -- throw water on him, that is.

'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'The ladies aren't the only ones who are getting all catty and gossipy on the Bravo 'Housewives' franchise. Peter let loose some trash talk in an interview on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 9PM ET on Bravo), so you know things were going to get tense when he and Cynthia showed up for Kim's baby shower.

They didn't even bring a gift, unless the gift was Peter stirring up trouble with Apollo, who was sitting right next to him. Apollo was clearly tense, as he was none too pleased with Peter trashing his wife, but Peter seems to want to get into a fight.

'Housewives' Sheree and Kim Think 'Apprentice' Made NeNe Delusional (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 14th 2011 6:30AM
Sheree, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'According to Kim and Sheree, NeNe's time on 'The Celebrity Apprentice' has really changed her, and not necessarily for the better. Kim pointed out on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 9PM ET on Bravo) that NeNe's been going off on some of her co-stars from that show. Stars that Kim thinks of as A-Listers, like LaToya Jackson, Star Jones and Dionne Warwick.

Sheree said that NeNe is now butting heads with virtually everyone she knows, and worries that she's letting her new-found notoriety, thanks to Donald Trump, go to her head.

"She really needs to humble herself, because as fast as you go up, you can come down," Sheree said. "Just like on a stripper pole."

NeNe Vs. Sheree on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 4 Premiere (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 7th 2011 7:25AM
'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' S04/E01Just when you might be in danger of pining for the table-flippers of New Jersey, we got to welcome back the wig-pullers from Georgia. Last night's Season 4 premiere of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 10PM ET on BRAVO) got off to an explosive start as NeNe Leakes got into a verbal battle with Sheree Whitfield over past money issues.

Believing that NeNe's been double-dealing behind her back, Sheree called Tyrone, who'd promoted one of their joint events. Putting him on speakerphone Sheree asked him for his version of what went down in Philly. Which, of course, NeNe disputed.

And that's when it all kicked off. NeNe claimed to be so rich already that she didn't need to shortchange her fellow 'Housewife': "While you were running your mouth off to him I was running to the bank. To deposit a check. A Donald Trump check." Take that, sweetie!

Kandi Buruss, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'By now, we're used to the bloated reunion specials for the various 'Real Housewives' series. But 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' (Sun., 10PM ET on Bravo) is upping the ante with a prequel special to the new season. 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Before They Were Stars' promised to spotlight every detail of their pasts, so that we might better know who they are before they start getting catty and sniping at one another in next week's premiere.

NeNe came clean about her past as a stripper, all the girls showed off their "fantastic" (yikes!) hairstyles of years gone by, and we got a reminder that Kandi Burruss is and has been a pretty big presence in the music industry.

NeNe Leakes' Friends Say She Was Right to Quit 'Celebrity Apprentice'

by PopEater Staff, posted May 11th 2011 6:00AM
NeNe LeakesAfter weeks of battling with Star Jones, NeNe Leakes controversially walked out of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' Sunday night. Now, with celebrities and others lobbing the racist label at Donald Trump, NeNe's friends say that quitting the show in the shocking -- and low-rated -- episode, was a smart, principled move.

"Everything will ultimately work out for NeNe," said a friend of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star. "In the long run she was much better off to quit and walk away than get a job with Donald Trump."

It should be noted that each celebrity is playing to raise money for their charity rather than get a job within Trump's organization. It should also be noted that the 'Celebrity Apprentice' we're seeing on Sundays was taped months ago, before The Donald's now-floundering bid for the White House and string of attacks on President Obama that many believe reek of racism.

Bravo Cancels 'The Real Housewives of D.C.'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Apr 8th 2011 7:15AM
'The Real Housewives of D.C.'It's been a bad year so far for Michaele Salahi. First she got thrown out of 'Celebrity Rehab' for not being addicted to anything, and now comes news that her version of 'The Real Housewives' has become the first one to be canceled.

Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the series was in jeopardy, and now 'The Washington Post' reports that Bravo officially pulled the plug on the 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Thursday.

According to the 'Post,' the production company behind the series contacted the cast to let them know Washington's contribution to Bravo's reality TV franchise would not be picked up for a second season.

The cancelation makes 'D.C.' the first 'Housewives' series not to receive a second season. Andy Cohen, Bravo's executive vice president of original programming and development, said, "We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity."

Andy Cohen Hedges on His 'No New Housewives' Edict: 'Never Say Never'

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 7th 2011 11:00AM
Andy Cohen in the Bravo clubhouse

Because Andy Cohen is not only a "Bravo-lebrity" -- he's host of the loosey-goosey talk show 'Watch What Happens Live' -- but he's also the network's executive vice president of original programming, it's hard to pin him down on certain issues.

For instance, when asked about his assertion last month that 'The Real Housewives' series won't be expanding into new cities, he backtracks a little bit. "Um, I mean, you know, look, I mean, look, never say never, but I think we're really good right now," he told me earlier this week. He also won't mention the fate of 'The Real Housewives of DC:' "You know what, we have not made any announcements and we haven't really gotten into it." (Update: 'The Real Housewives of DC' was officially canceled on April 7.)

One thing is certain, though: if the show is pushing into Toronto, as was reported last week, it won't be produced by Bravo: "You know what, I don't know if that's a license deal. I don't know what that is. But that was the first I had heard of it too."

On Thursday, April 7 at 11PM ET, Cohen celebrated the 100th episode of 'WWHL,' and he's enjoying every minute of his side gig. "I love it that right now it's kind of somewhere between 'Wayne's World' and a Fellini movie," Cohen said.

Bravo Picks Up 11 New Shows, Renews 5 Others

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 30th 2011 4:00PM
Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos of 'Flipping Out' to star in new Bravo series 'Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis'One of the things that's always been striking about how Bravo has reinvented itself over the last decade is that when they find a franchise they like, they go all in and take it in as many different directions as they can.

It's made for a channel that has a very strong identity and fan base. And has led the NBC Universal–owned network to confidently announce at their upfront today that they're going to be picking up 11 new shows.

You read that number right. The 11 that are being picked up include new shows from some of the network's most recognizable stars, like Jeff Lewis and Tabitha Coffey, and will also include a New York spin-off of their popular real estate show 'Million Dollar Listing.'

Bravo announced the return of five shows: 'Top Chef Just Desserts,' 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,' 'Bethenny Ever After' and 'Tabatha's Salon Takeover.'

More on this mega-announcement, plus a list of the new shows, after the jump.
