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.

Video: Real Housewives Of Atlanta Visit The Ellen DeGeneres Show!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday in what proved to be a Jerry Springer like appearance. The video is below.

It all started when host, Ellen DeGeneres, not so innocently asked about the wig-pulling episode that aired last month which involved both Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield. This led to Sheree calling Kim a habitual liar, and the topic quickly deteriorated into an argument about bounced checks, name calling, and accusations of affairs with married men.

Ellen tried to separate Sheree and Kim by sitting on the couch between them before cutting to commercial. Their appearance on the talk show was rather embarrassing to watch. Remaining housewives, Kandi Burruss, Lisa Wu Hartwell, and Nene Leakes, were mostly quiet throughout the entire segment.

Part of the argument included Kim accusing Sheree of self promotion for wearing her ‘She By Sheree’ earrings during her NOH8 campaign photo shoot. You can view the controversial NOH8 picture here.

More Bravo Housewives Take NOH8 Campaign Photos!

More Bravo housewives are following in the steps of Kim Zolciak, by taking photos for the NOH8 campaign.

Gretchen Rossi, Sheree Whitfield, Dina Manzo and Kandi Burruss are the latest housewives to participate in the NOH8 campaign, in an attempt to promote themselves gay rights. Real Housewives of Atlanta’s honorable 6th housewife, Dwight Eubanks, gets in on the action as well.

The NOH8 (No Hate) campaign was created to help raise awareness for marriage equality in California.

Check out the photos of the remaining housewives below!

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.

Man Sues ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Series

George Page is suing The Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise. George was featured on a previous episode, during which he is seen on a five-minute speed date with Sheree Whitfield in Atlanta.

In the clip, Page is seen telling a(n) extremely really corny joke to Sheree while equally corny music and sound effects play in the background.

TMZ reports in the lawsuit, which was filed last week in State Court in Chicago, Page claims he never gave permission to Bravo to show his face on TV — and was assured by producers that he would be edited out of the show.

Page is suing Bravo and NBC for at least $50,000 for infringing on his Right of Publicity and for causing him “emotional distress.”

Something tells me this lawsuit will not go very far. Reality shows in general, especially the really popular ones such as the Housewives’ series, are notorious for getting release forms signed from any and everyone, before they can show their faces on TV.

They even make sure they get release forms signed from random people in the background of scenes. We should be hearing news that this lawsuit has been dismissed any minute from now.

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 Lisa Wu Hartwell’s Home Foreclosed

Another day, another foreclosure for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The latest housewife to get her home foreclosed is Lisa Wu Hartwell. Sheree Whitfield’s home was also foreclosed a while back.

TMZ is reporting today that Lisa Hartwell and her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Ed Hartwell, were booted from their multi-million dollar Georgia mansion last week — after the bank foreclosed on the place. The bank sold it shortly after.

Lisa’s rep does not deny the story. The rep claims the couple was in talks with the lender to restructure the loan because the home had lost value — but that failed. They originally bought the place for $2.9 mil back in 2007 but the bank only got $1.9 mil when they resold it this month.

The rep continues, “Ed and Lisa are fine. They have settled in their [new] home, that sits on 10 acres and they OWN it!”

New Photo Of Kim Zolciak With Big Poppa!

TMZ has managed to do the impossible. They were able to get their hands on a rare photo of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak with her infamous and rumored to still be married “Big Poppa.

According to TMZ, the photo was taken last November at the Hotel Atlantis in the Bahamas. Though TMZ fails to name the man in the photo, he definitely strikes a strong resemblance to Lee Najjar, who has been pretty much confirmed to be Big Poppa.

Kim has claimed Big Poppa was separated from his wife in the past. There has however been no official confirmation on whether or not Lee Najjar is really separated.

A photo of Lee Najjar with his wife, who is also ironically named Kim, below. You be the judge.

American Idol Searching For Permanent Abdul Replacement

Even though Paula Abdul is leaving the show, American Idol will still have four judges, Fox chairman Peter Rice told the FOX Television Critics Association on Thursday.

“There is going to be a search,” he said. The search is for a permanent replacement, while there will be guest judges taking her place during the auditions.

According to Peter, the producers “were hoping” Abdul would come back. “We love Paula. She’s been a really wonderful part of the show for eight years.”

Sources say that Paula asked for a $20 million deal which producers were unwilling to meet. She also rejected a thirty percent raise.

According to FOX, guest judges including Victoria Beckham and Katy Perry will join Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi in the seven weeks of audition rounds, which starts Friday in Denver.

“We’ll have these guest judges do one week each during the audition [period]… there is no thought right now that any of these judges will be long term judge for us,” Rice said. “All of the people we are talking to have successful careers. I don’t even think they’d be available to judge full-time. We have now until January to introduce a new energy to the panel.”

There are also rumors that Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is being considered as a judge, but those are simply rumors for now.
