Who Is Your Favorite Atlanta Housewife?

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta never fails to amuse us in ways we never imagined. Whether it be the disgraceful display of Sheree and Kim on The Ellen Show or Sheree pulling Kim’s hair, the list goes on.

We placed a poll on our website a few weeks ago and the results have been really interesting. Surprisingly, NeNe Leakes is still your favorite Atlanta Housewife, though her popularity seems to be dwindling down in recent weeks. It seems the more you all have gotten to know Kandi Burruss, the more she is liked. Lisa and Kim are tied in the like-ability department.

Kandi is without a doubt my favorite Atlanta housewife, as her easygoing demeanor reminds me of Jacqueline from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Nene has become a tad more obnoxious this season. She’s louder, meaner and her unprovoked jealousy towards Kandi is rather transparent. Sheree is more unlikeable this year, who knew that was possible? She comes of as being angry at the world, while still having major delusions of grandeur. Lisa is still Lisa, and Kim? Well her wig looks slightly better this season.

Lisa Wu Hartwell’s Closet Freak Clothing Line Unveiled!

The upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will feature the debut of Lisa Wu Hartwell‘s clothing line. The clothing line named “Closet Freak” was unveiled a while back during a fashion show in Atlanta.

We now have the photos of Lisa’s line, and let’s just say some of her pieces should have remained in the closet. The above photo is pretty much as “good” as it gets.

When asked to describe her clothing line, Lisa says, “I wanted very classical, elegant pieces, but still a little flirtatious. I think these days a lot of women overexpose themselves to get attention.” The good news is wearing Closet Freak will definitely get you some attention, though likely not the type of attention you were looking for.

This clothing line is in addition to Lisa’s many businesses – which include a jewelry line, real estate company, children’s clothing line, and any other business she decides to come up with while this post is being written. A reader once asked a good question, saying – “Lisa has a lot of businesses, but do any of them make her any money?” Interesting question indeed.

Photos of Lisa’s Closet Freak line is below. The 18-piece collection includes skirts, tops, jumpsuits and dresses.

Lisa Wu Hartwell – Reason She Lost Custody Is Revealed

Lisa Wu Hartwell recently spoke out on her desire to fight for custody of her two eldest children, but what she failed to mention was the reason she lost custody in the first place.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has always maintained she is uncertain as to the reason she lost custody of her 2 eldest sons back in 2003 to ex-husband, Keith Sweat. Keith is pictured above on the right, he received primary custody of the two boys.

Access Atlanta was able to get their hands on the custody ruling, which explains the reason Lisa lost custody.

Judge Cynthia D. Wright wrote –

“There is evidence that Father has been violent towards Mother, but no evidence he has ever been violent with any of his children.” The judge felt the children at the time “lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother’s numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town … Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother’s maturity and judgment.”

“Father is capable of providing a stable, secure home environment for the boys where their care is not delegated to random third parties.”

To sum this up, the judge felt that Lisa’s ex husband, Keith Sweat, who had been abusive to Lisa during their marriage was a better fit to parent the children than Lisa. Interesting.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Nene Leakes: “Yes I Was A Stripper”

New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub seems to be in good company, as Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is now admitting to her past as a stripper.

“Yes, I was a stripper – let the judgments ensue…I am not ashamed” Nene announces the bombshell in her new autobiography – Never Make The Same Mistake Twice.

Nene seems to believe her stripper past has no reflection on her presence as an “Atlanta socialite,” saying, “What difference does it make if I danced or not?” she asks. “Is the sun going to stop shining? Is my past taking food out of your mouth?”

Nene proceeds to explain her reasons for stripping, “[I stripped] for the sake of my son, and to restore my confidence in myself,” she explains. “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.”

The ex-stripper, who referred to herself as Silk during her dancing days as a twentysomething year old – admits that she liked the power that came with being a stripper. “I could make $500 off one guy just by turning him on.” These men “were obviously there to see what I had, and I quickly realized that those men weren’t there to make me feel bad about myself.”

Interestingly, it has always been said that Nene’s husband, Gregg Leakes, met her at a strip club while she was working. Fellow castmate, Kim Zolciak was also outed has being a past stripper by her former publicist. My favorite part of this story is that she stripped to restore confidence in herself – brings out the lols.

Kim Zolciak Admits – “I Did Hit Nene” Plus Gregg Leakes Court Records

The alleged chokegate involving Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been making recent headlines. Kim filed a police report back in April, accusing Nene of choking her during an argument.

On Wednesday, NeNe claimed Kim was not an innocent victim in the alleged assault, in which Kim claims NeNe “choked her out.” NeNe appearing on Atlanta’s Q1000 radio station said of the fight. “Kim is trying to make it seem like, ‘I need an apology. I’m so hurt’.”

Kim is now admitting to OK! that she did “smack NeNe’s finger” — but insists she did not strike out first. Kim continues, “I was not pleased with the stuff that’s coming out her mouth, but as far as putting your hands on somebody, absolutely not. I didn’t touch her first.” Umm how old are these women again?

Adds Kim, “She put her hand in my face after she choked me the first time, and I smacked her finger out of my face.” This fight was allegedly taped for the show, so it’s safe to say we will be seeing it on Bravo in the near future.

In other news, Nene’s broke husband Gregg Leakes‘s legal records are making its rounds. According to a public search, Gregg has been involved in 17 legal cases in recent years. These cases range from non payment of child support , receiving stolen propery, to writing bad checks.

People with skeletons might want to think twice before choosing to appear on reality shows. Just a thought.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Sheree Dishes On Fight With Party Planner

Following the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, “They said I was the number one trending topic on Twitter,” says Sheree Whitfield.

The tweets were flying due to the very heated on-camera argument she had with her party planner Anthony. When Anthony snapped to Sheree, “You better check yourself,” she hissed back with what is destined to be her signature line, “Who’s gonna check me, boo?”

After watching the scene unfold on TV, Sheree says, the incident looked really bad and people like Anthony are opportunists who want publicity. She also adds, “He thinks he’s going to benefit from it, but to me, you look like a fool. You look like an ass on TV. Who wants to be remembered like that?”

Anthony has refused to apologize for the incident. (more…)

Photos Of Atlanta Housewives Premier Party & Kim’s Stripper Past

The Real Housewives of Atlanta threw themselves a premier party to celebrate their upcoming second season. The 2nd season is set to premier tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

In attendance were housewives – Kim Zolciak, Lisa Wu-Hartwell, Sheree Whitfield and NeNe Leakes — along with new Housewife Kandi Burruss. Honorable sixth housewife, Dwight Eubanks was also in attendance. Sheree’s hair looks umm interesting, while Kim’s hair looks great for Kim standards.

In other news, Nene will reportedly expose Kim’s past as a stripper in her new autobiography titled “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice.” Kim’s ex publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, echoed the same story when he claimed Kim used to be a stripper in Atlanta back in 2003, who went by the name of Barbie.

Nene writing about Kim’s stripping past is interesting, considering the fact that she is also rumored to have been a past stripper. Seems Danielle Staub of the New Jersey Housewives is in good company.

Dlisted also posted the below photo of Kim Zolciak during her high school freshman year. No the photo is not from the 80’s, but was taken in 1993. Interestingly, pre plastic surgery Kim looks a lot like her eldest daughter.
