What Do NeNe and Brandi Really think About their Castmates? by NoMoreDrama
On screen last night NeNe Leakes was happy, friendly, and a whole new person compared to the past few seasons of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Unfortunately the same couldn’t be said about the NeNe who was tweeting throughout the night.
First it was sort of funny when she tweeted this as Kenya Moore appeared on the screen:
But she clearly got mad when Kandi was questioning why Phaedra was hanging out with NeNe and Cynthia, and things went downhill from there (Kandi explained that they filmed just one month after the reunion, so she was still on her guard). To set the context of who she might be talking about, both Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak were given spin offs from the show.
The last one was in direct response to one of Kandi’s comments, which Kandi addressed in a tweet:
After that came a string of self-centered tweets, mean retweets, and just a general downward spiral from NeNe. Although most of the tweets had something positive about NeNe, so maybe she was just retweeting good stuff about her (along with the bad) rather than the other way around.
Then when Kandi was on Watch What Happens Live NeNe let loose with:
Then reminded fans what a star she is:
And then as Kandi discussed her comments and told viewers she supported NeNe and thought she was in a good place, NeNe responded with:
Was NeNe justified in her tweets?
Now earlier yesterday evening another housewife was busy on twitter and may regret it – but probably not. I mentioned a few days ago that Brandi Glanville was rushed to the hospital for a gland infection. She’s on a heavy dose of antibiotics, but decided to fly to New York for her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. If you remember, Brandi has issues with flying, so she took a Xanax (or Zany as she fondly calls them) to take the edge off her anxiety. One of her funnier twitter exchanges was with boss Andy Cohen:
When she got onto the plane she said she’s be taking questions. The one I think she may regret answering is this:
Latest rumors for the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 Cast are the following (according to a blogger)
- Caroline Manzo is not coming back
- Kathy Wakile is not coming back
- Jacqueline Laurita will be back but in a much more limited role (and she’s in trouble over some of the comments she’s made on twitter and at the reunion regarding the Laurita legal case)
- Teresa will be back. The network wants to do a spinoff on her if Joe goes to jail but she’s not that interested unless it focuses on Gia or the family.
- Melissa will be back but she’s also like a spinoff possibly focusing on a move to Hollywood and her rising career as a singer.
- Kim D will be back as a friend of a housewife
- Noelle Brescia. Friends with Kim, and definitely on “Team Teresa.”
- Gia Casey. Gia is married to DJ Envy. She and Teresa are friendly, it is unknown if she will be an ally to Teresa.
- Priscilla DiStasio. Priscilla is Teresa’s makeup artist and best friend
No news of hairdresser Penny or husband Johnny the Greek, or sister-in-law Sheila Giudice.
Apparently they’ve already started filming – perhaps capturing some of the Sandy relief efforts??

Real Housewives of Atlanta Episode 2 Excess Breeds Success
Wow, Brent is growing up. He’s riding in the limo with Nene to a gay pride parade in Los Angeles. Nene asks Brent what he thinks about moving to LA and as long as there’s basketball and football in LA, it’s fine with Brent. Nene talks openly about the gay community to Brent and how she loves gays and how they invented everything from nail polish to weaves. When Nene arrives to the event, she rides in a white convertible with the NBC logo. She tears up when she hears people yell, “I love you Nene!” Gregg meets them and Nene was happy to see a straight man at the end of the parade.
Kenya, Candy and the lawyer meet for lunch. Kenya shows off her donkey bootie. They talk about beauty pageants and Kenya tells them about the Jet audition at Cynthia’s. She talks about bootie cracks and coochie cracks again. She tells them how she called her security to throw out Cynthia’s assistant when he tried to shut her down and the lawyer thinks her security is hilarious and likes Kenya immediately. Then in her talking head she comments that Kenya’s not Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston. Candy says she wants to have more kids, and apparently so does the rest of them.
Kim plays with KJ and thinks being homeless is funny. Sweetie tells her it’s not. The nanny takes KJ away so that his momma can talk about planning where to live. The asking price of the home they currently live in was $3.1 million but was appraised at $2.1 million. Kim says no one pays more than the appraised price. (Really Kim?). Kim realizes she’s living in la la land after she talks about houseboats and renting a penthouse at the W hotel. Kim states she is too busy having a baby than to find a place to live. Sweeties says this is crazy. (Good observation Sweetie).
Kenya’s aunt comes over to see Kenya’s house. Kenya’s aunt raised Kenya, not her mother. Her aunt speaks her mind and complains that she hasn’t met Kenya’s current beau, Walter and intimates that there might be something wrong with Walter. Kenya’s aunt asks why Kenya’s relationship with a past boyfriend, Eric, didn’t work out. Kenya’s aunt has pulled Kenya aside after meeting a past boyfriend to tell her that he isn’t good enough for her. Kenya starts crying because she doesn’t feel anything she does is good enough for her aunt. Her aunt calms her by saying that past boyfriend wasn’t nice and if Walter is nice then she’ll be fine with him. They clink glasses and sip red wine.
The lawyer, Nene and Cynthia meet to work out. Nene complains about working out and swinging big blue balls. Cynthia has an idea to throw a party to celebrate Nene’s success. Nene thinks only successful women should be invited. The lawyer asks if Kim can be invited and Nene agrees that she should be. (They need to interact for the show). Nene asks about Kenya and Cynthia tells her about the Jet audition and how Kenya was disappointing. Cynthia says she’s invited to the party but she’s done with Kenya.
Kim and Kroy celebrate Kim’s birthday on a boat ride with all her favorite food like chicken wings. Kim realizes she is not going to have her perfect house and may have to move back to the townhouse. Kim opens her present and it’s the bracelet she borrowed for her wedding. Kroy announces it’s no longer borrowed.
Kenya is on a date with Walter. She describes how she saw a big black snake during her running workout and she came to the conclusion the snake signifies change. The change she wants is to have babies. (So the big, black snake is more like a phallic symbol). Walter seems nervous about the change. (Maybe his snake ain’t that big). Walter told Kenya that he asked Candy out before. Kenya starts to get upset and starts drinking. She thinks Candy has it in her pocket that Walter asked her out and she turned him down. Walter thinks she’s getting upset about nothing. She gets even more upset when she mentions that Walter likes women with big butts and he agrees. (Everyone flashes a memory of Candy’s butt).
Kim and Kroy talk about placing bets on the temp of the room and who ever gets it right wins a sexual favor. Meanwhile Kroy is talking on the baby monitor with KJ.
Candy and Todd are settling in their new home and talk about tools. The lawyer comes over to see the new house. She talks about the workout with Nene and Cynthia’s women empowerment party. Candy can’t believe Nene and Cynthia are extending an invitation to Candy and Kim.
Cut to the party. There are some successful, highbrow women at this party. Kim couldn’t believe it either that she had been invited to this party so she’s going to go and then leave soon after.
Nene asks why Kim is leaving so early. Nene asks Kim to stay for 5 minutes because she’s having a baby. Kim gets the joke but still leaves early. Nene is annoyed that Kim said she would go to the bathroom and come back but never did.
Kenya takes over Cynthia’s party with the microphone.
Kenya then asks Nene to give her a fair chance and not let her altercation with Cynthia cloud her opinion of her. Cynthia asks what year Kenya was Miss USA, before or after Vanessa Williams. Kenya then reminds everyone that Vanessa Williams was the first black Miss USA.
Nene then thanks everyone for coming and how women need to lift each other up and Candy gives her the side-eye. She’s not so sure Nene wants to be above the drama.
The Real Housewives of Miami “A Better or Bitter Place”
Recap by Krissy S
Joanna Plays Volleyball and Vows to Stop Drinking
“Oh wait! Am I cheering for the wrong team?” – Lisa
Welcome to the 2012 Model Beach Volleyball Tournament! Joanna is playing in a celebrity volleyball tournament raising money to build wells in Africa. (There is a quick plug for Bimini Bay Bahamas Resort & Marina…is this where they will be taking their ‘Housewives’ trip this season?) She is joined by Karent and Lisa who cheer her on from the stands. Romain was invited but has not shown up to the event. Joanna tells the girls that he is still very upset for the way she treated him during Lisa’s charity event and he will not even return her text messages. They haven’t communicated in over a week. On to the beach volleyball match – lots of bikinis, sunglasses, ponytails, and ripped abs. Karent and Lisa are joking and laughing in the stands and although she loses, it looks like Joanna had a good time.
Romain finally shows up after the match is over and greets the ladies. Karent and Lisa leave them alone to talk and Romain and Joanna walk out to sit on the beach. Romain tells Joanna that she did not deserve for him to come to her game because of her behavior and she tells him that she is upset that he has been so cold to her since Lisa’s charity event. Romain is angry because he tried to defend her to Adriana and, in her drunken and crazed state, she pushed him away. The subject of alcohol comes up and Romain tells her that she is ‘out of her mind’ when she drinks and that it needs to stop. He says that when they are out together at social events, he doesn’t want her to drink. She seems on board with the idea…we’ll see.
Ana Moves Out of Robert’s Office
“It doesn’t scream ‘true grit’ if you don’t drink it from the bottle.” – Robert
Watching Ana and Robert separate is rough because they are so fun together. They seem so in tune with each other and so concerned and loving. Ana has finally made the decision to move out of the office that she and Robert have shared for years. Tears roll down her cheeks are she packs her office into boxes. (Is that a Robert voodoo doll?!) They have been practicing law together for over twenty years. Ana says that she knows it is necessary to move on, yet she is still sad and scared because it is all she knows. Robert comes in to comfort her, telling her that it is a new chapter in her life and that they will still be friends. In the past, to celebrate a big closing, they would do a shot. So they each take a shot out of the bottle to finalize the move. The lid goes on the last box, the lights are turned off, and Ana is officially moving on.
Lisa and Karent Have a Heart to Heart
“Some of the ladies have a tendency to revert every conversation back to them.” – Lisa
Lisa arrives at Karent’s home for some girl talk. She tells Karent that she has been upset because her doctors cannot figure out why her body won’t carry a pregnancy to term. She has had three miscarriages and wants a baby more than anything. Lisa begins crying saying that the reason she and Lenny got married was to start a family and he is frustrated. She feels like less of a woman, being unable to have a child. Karent tries to relate to her because she put off having a family to establish herself in her career and now she wants children. She asks Lisa what she will do if she is ultimately unable to have a child and Lisa responds that she does not know. She tells Karent that out of all the women in the group, Karent is the one that she can talk to about her struggle. They joke about getting pregnant at the same time and having a joint baby shower. It is touching to see Lisa and Karent reach out to each other and be able to offer real emotional support.
Lea Loses Leroy
“Rest in peace, beautiful Leroy.” – Maryel (Lea’s friend)
Lea is in the kitchen with her son RJ and maid Freda when she gets a phone call from the veterinarian. Her dog Leroy has taken a turn for the worse and Lea rushes out in tears to be with him. He passes away before she gets there and Lea is devastated. She has had Leroy for thirteen years and wants to give him a meaningful memorial.
Days later, Lea tries multiple times to call Freda with no response and walks out to her quarters. We hear again about the odd situation that they have – Freda has two assistant maids, a driver, and a family credit card, yet she does not seem to do much work. Freda completely ignores Lea when she walks in, continuing to read her book. Lea has to literally pull the book out of her hands to get her to make eye contact. She breaks down telling Freda that she wants to have a memorial for Leroy and Freda tells her to stop crying. It really is an odd relationship. Some time has passed and they are coming together to bury Leroy’s ashes. Adriana and her son Alex are there for support and they have a small memorial service. They all share their memories of Leroy and place his ashes in the ground.
Lisa, Daysy, and Liposuction
“Just don’t make her hotter than me!” – Lisa
Lisa brings her housekeeper Daysy to Lenny’s office for Daysy’s plastic surgery consultation. Lenny asks Daysy if she has had surgery on her stomach before and she rattles off a list of cosmetic surgeries and Lisa sits there stunned. Lisa seems completely in shock that Daysy has had so much work done – it sounds like something that Daysy should have mentioned during all of their conversations about Lenny gifting her the work. They move into the consultation room and Lisa looks over Lenny’s shoulder as he discusses the plan for surgery. When they are done, Daysy says that next time he can fix the wrinkles near her eyes. Lisa is so vulnerable, it makes you wonder if Daysy is taking advantage of her.
The Obligatory Mid-Commercial Fake Out
“Being away from Rodolfo is starting to take a toll.” – Karent
Karent is sitting in her backyard snuggling with her two parrots. She is missing Rodolfo, but says that she has her birds to keep her company. Could this be foreshadowing of the inevitable break up?
Karent Gets A Loaded Invitation
“I’d much rather smile from stress than turn into a monster like some of these women.” – Karent
Karent arrives home and finds her mother hanging out in the kitchen. She scolds her mother for letting the refrigerator get disorganized. Her mother goes for some ice cream and Karent chastises her saying that she is supposed to be on a diet and should only have two spoonfuls. She is scooping out her approved amount of ice cream when Karent’s phone rings. Alexia is calling to ask her to her home for a sit down with all of the ladies. With all of the drama that has been going on, Alexia thinks that it would be a good idea to gather everyone to clear the air. Karent is hesitant because of how things went down the last time they saw each other. As her mother is waving her hands ‘no,’ Alexia tells Karent that there will be no fighting or aggression, just the opportunity to talk and move on. Karent agrees to go. After the phone call she tells her mother that the ladies have an issue with her smiling and talking too much, but she doesn’t see that as a problem. She smiles when she is stressed. Her mother cautions her, but Karent feels comfortable going because she has Joanna and Lisa on her side.
Alexia Feeds Karent to the Wolves
“Alexia asked us all here to try to bury the hatchet. Hopefully it won’t be in somebody’s back.” – Ana
The women are arriving one by one to Alexia’s home. Some are anointing themselves with holy water, other are pouring drinks, and every one of them is on edge. There are two sides that have formed prior to the meeting: Lisa and Joanna are on Team Karent, and Adriana, Marysol, and Ana are on Team Alexia. Battle lines have been drawn. They gather at a table outside and Alexia opens saying that she has brought everyone together to talk about what has been going on and to try to work things out. Marysol immediately goes into the attack saying that the article that Karent was interviewed for personally insulted and offended her and her friends. Karent starts to defend herself and Marysol shuts her down and says that she wanted to make a statement, not have a discussion. She tells Karent that she should fire her publicist for allowing the interview. Karent again tries to explain and Alexia jumps in. Karent is frustrated and Joanna comes to her defense asking Alexia and Marysol to allow her to speak. Ana turns to Karent and says that every problem is somehow connected to her and asks her how she has managed to piss off so many people. She tells her that it would be best if Karent not talk to anyone about the ladies in the group. This time Lisa comes to Karent’s aid and says that she has been nothing but respectful and friendly to her. Karent shuts down and puts on her nervous smile which infuriates Adriana. Adriana lashes out calling Karent the Joker and complaining that Karent won’t acknowledge what is going on. Joanna tells Adriana that she is bullying Karent and talk quickly turns to the incident at Lisa’s party when Adriana smacked Joanna in the face. Tempers are flaring and voices are rising. Lea steps in to diffuse the situation and Joanna and Adriana end up apologizing to each other. Kind of. Adriana gets up to leave the party and we cut to next week.
