NeNe Denies Rumors that her Car was Repossessed and Other Housewife News by NoMoreDrama
Rumors are starting to swirl last week about NeNe Leake’s finances – or more to the point – her overspending. Someone began to spread the rumor that her Bentley was repossessed and her house was about to go into foreclosure, and that she’s been living life large – spending $17k a month to front her lifestyle. It all stemmed from this source but by now has been picked up by other gossip magazines.
Not true, says NeNe. In fact, absolutely false. She doesn’t even own or drive a Bentley.
From her twitter feed:
“U can’t just b doin well! Everybody wanna pull u down! So like our people! I work & work hard. Never owned a Bentley & never drove 1”
“Still n the same house,still drive the same car, Still work on 3 shows!…..it’s hard 4 people 2 b happy 4 ur SUCCESS”
“Our people r the first ones to lie on u and the last ones to protect u! So sad”
If they’re going to make up a lie, they should at least verify she owns the type of car they are saying is being repossessed. Are they confusing her with Sheree?
Joe Francis is talking about Joanna Krupa again. This time Joe has told Rumorfix that Yolanda Foster caught then husband Mohamed and Joanna “together” and that was the end of their marriage. Then, according to Joe, Mohamed asked Joe to take Joanna off his hands – and they ended up dating for six months. Joanna says Joe is full of crap, and Yolanda has no comment. I wouldn’t believe a word either of them says so I’m at a loss. Here’s a link to Rumorfix. I will say this. If Mohamed cheated on Yolanda HE broke up their marriage. That’s all.
Bravo gives go-ahead to two new reality shows based in Atlanta, including one produced by the same producers of Real Housewives of New Jersey and Miami. This one is called “Married to Medicine”. That will bring the number to 5 shows produced in Atlanta. Besides Housewives, there’s the Kandi Factory, Kim’s Don’t be Tardy, and another show with the working title Taking Atlanta about aspiring locals. Read more here.
Divorces are never easy, but Kelsey and Camille Grammer continue to make news with their battles. This time it’s about the home the couple shared together. According to TMZ, the 10,000 square foot home is up for sale – listed at $16,000,000 – and now Kelsey is threatening to move back into the home. According to sources, Camille fears the home won’t sell with him inside, and then she won’t get half of the proceeds. The large mortgage on the property is draining her financially. Camille asked the courts for an emergency order to keep Kelsey out. The judge set a hearing for next month. Hopefully Camille will be able to separate their assets before his new wife leaves him, now that his sitcom has been cancelled.
RHOBH “Uh Oh, Somebody’s Crying” by BB
Adrienne is preparing herself by sipping (chugging) wine at the Mulholland Grill while waiting for Lisa to arrive. Adrienne thinks it’s time for them to put all their issues aside. Lisa arrives and they greet each other enthusiastically, like arriving at the dentist’s office. Lisa doesn’t like the wine Adrienne has on the table and orders something else. Adrienne tells Lisa she looks beautiful and Lisa tells her she does too and thanks Adrienne for the flowers. Adrienne tells Lisa she told the flower shop to send a beautiful arrangement and apologizes for it being so big. Lisa tells Adrienne that the arrangement certainly made a statement. Adrienne asks Lisa how she is. Lisa starts to tell her, when Adrienne again tells her she looks beautiful.
Adrienne tells Lisa the flower arrangement was absolutely a peace offering and she didn’t mean to hurt Lisa’s feelings. She says she reacted to Lisa hurting her feelings and sometimes people do certain things and it was stupid. She should have come to Lisa and talked about it. Lisa knows Adrienne is nervous and is waiting for Adrienne to deliver what she came for, an apology. Adrienne talks around the apology forever while Lisa just stares at her waiting and waiting until she finally gets the apology and accepts it. In her interview, Adrienne says Lisa probably owed her an apology, but she knew that was probably not going to happen. She got that one right. Whew, glad that’s over (for now).
Every time the camera pans to Yolanda’s house, my heart does a little pitter pat because I can’t get enough of that house. Even her laundry room looks nice. Kim pays Yolanda a visit so they can have some one-on-one time. While Yolanda prepares lattes for them, her son Anwar comes in with a new buzz cut, and Yolanda asks Kim about her kids, who all are getting ready to go back to school. They discuss the upcoming trip to Ojai that Bravo (Kim) has organized to bring everybody together to try to mend some wounds. They talk about Ojai being magical and how they will be staying at the mansion on the hotel grounds. Yolanda will be arriving a little late because David will be dropping her off after a concert at Kennedy Center in DC. She tells Kim she can’t remember the last time she’s been away with a group of girls. Kim tells her she will really, really enjoy it.
Brandi gets a visit from Michael Broussard, her literary agent, to discuss her book about her divorce. He tells her the publishers liked everything about the book proposal except the title, “It’s Divorce, Not Cancer.” He says it might limit the readership and they need to broaden it to include all types of relationships, maybe “It’s a Breakup, Not Cancer” or something like that. This is the same literary agent as Chelsea Handler has, so she’s in good hands. In her book she will be talking about all the things she did during the breakup of her marriage (drank too much, took Lexapro, bedded a few too many guys for a hot second, partied a lot, cried all day, etc.). She was originally going to do a fashion book. I think the breakup book will be much more interesting. He hopes she gets an offer that week.
Kyle and Alexia go to the DMV for the third time (she’s failed the written test twice already). You would think Alexia is getting major surgery the way Kyle is acting about it. Kyle’s emotional about her getting her license because it’s like cutting the cord. She finally passes and drives her mom’s car home.
Brandi is doing a photo-shoot for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine. Lisa arrives with Mark, the owner of the magazine and tells Brandi she scrubs up well (she does look gorgeous). Lisa works for the magazine and hopes this job will lead to other income earning jobs for Brandi. Lisa jokingly tells Brandi if she keeps her legs and mouth shut she’ll be ok. Kim has told Lisa it’s OK to invite Brandi to the Ojai weekend trip. Lisa and Brandi discuss Adrienne and how the weekend will be a nice cozy couple of days. Brandi’s a natural at during the photo-shoot and Lisa now gets why the other ladies don’t like her. They look at some proofs and Brandi points out wrinkles on her thumb. Lisa thinks if the shoot’s a success, it will be good for Brandi’s esteem. Brandi appreciates Lisa’s nurturing nature.
Adrienne and Taylor (who now seem to travel as a pair) meet Kim at Kyle’s house for the trip to Ojai. In her talking head, Taylor acts like she’s doing a favor going on this trip to support Kim who, in the past, wasn’t even guaranteed to show up for anything. How nice of Taylor, who always shows up and acts appropriately at the girls’ get togethers. Wasn’t Kim the level-headed one during one of their previous trips, when Taylor ended up in a suitcase or something, if I’m remembering correctly? In the car with Kim, Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne, Camille jokes about Kelsey’s new tattoo, located right beside his privates, and then Camille mentions her Greek boyfriend.
The first group (Kyle, Kim, Taylor, Adrienne and Camille) arrive. They all oooh and aaah about the mansion. They are met by the resort manager and he gives them a tour of the house. It’s really nice, but I’d rather stay at Yolanda’s. There are five bedrooms (three have twin beds). Everyone is figuring (in their heads) out who’s going to be with whom in what rooms.
Adrienne is plotting to make sure she gets a better bedroom than Lisa this time. Talk about petty. Yolanda arrives from her DC trip ahead of Lisa and Brandi. When Lisa and Brandi arrive, it’s kisses and hugs all around, even though Kim is not that happy about embracing Brandi. It’s awkward, but Kim is trying. They talk about sleeping arrangements and Lisa jokingly says she’s not sharing a room with Brandi. Yolanda will get her own room since she doesn’t know the others that well. Lisa and Brandi get the small room with the itty bitty twin beds. The others are all yukking it up and Kyle imitates Lisa saying the room is fine, when on the inside, she’s seething. After Kim leaves Lisa and Brandi in their room, they discuss what Brandi sleeps in (frilly bottoms). Lisa is not going to make a fuss about their rooms.
The girls decide they’re tired of waiting for Lisa and Brandi and go ahead to dinner. When Lisa and Brandi arrive, Kim and Brandi end up sitting right across from each other and Lisa is at the other end of the table. Kyle brings up David’s music and they discuss that for a short minute. Lisa proposes a toast. Kim makes a little speech about all of them putting things to the side and trying to move forward. Kim gets emotional about how happy she is and she thanks them for coming. Brandi talks about Eddie and Leann renewing their vows after only one year. Kyle calls it a photo-op and tells Brandi she thinks Leann is insecure about Brandi being Eddie’s ex. When Kyle imitates Lisa’s accent again, Lisa tells her there’s another person with an accent at the table (Yolanda) so she can have a go at her. Awkward looks all around.
Brandi talks to Kim about her daughters and how she did a good job with them. Even though they show their dislike of Brandi (because they are protective of Kim), Brandi tells her all of her friends talk about how great Kim’s daughters are. Kim thanks Brandi for the compliment. Brandi and Kim are having a good conversation about being single moms and how hard it is. Brandi tells Kim she’s been in those dark places and she’s not judging her and Kim gets emotional about what Brandi has said to her in the past. Adrienne announces loudly a couple of times “Somebody’s crying,” to bring the whole table’s attention to their conversation. Brandi tells Adrienne to stop calling it out and to STFU. Adrienne looks at Brandi like she just shot her or something. Kyle thinks it’s an inappropriate thing to say at a dinner party. Taylor is talking about herself when she says they never know what Brandi is going to say or do when they get together. I can’t believe Taylor said that with a straight face and the producers didn’t burst out laughing when she said it.
To be continued next week.
Week 10 Dancing with the Stars, All-Stars, Finale By COCFarm
Well, here it is folks. Tomorrow night at 8:00 Central time, the two-hour finale results show will happen and we will have a woman champ for the all-star season.
I have to say Shawn is a gymnast, Olympic gold metal winner and a 20 year old. How can she not win? And that’s how I feel, there is no way she is not going to win. And does she deserve it? Well, yah, she’s a 20 year old Olympian! She has really been spot-on and is the best dancer. I think she will be robbed if she doesn’t win. But there is a little spot in me that wishes one of the other women could win. Because they have something to prove and Shawn really does not…other than that she is an Olympic competitor. Kelly was smeared after her season 1 win and I thought it very unfair. Melissa has never won the mirror ball and Tony, her partner, has never won it either after 14 seasons. He seems like one of the most likeable men on the planet and I can’t help but feel for him. He deserves the win most of all in my eyes, almost, and I’m the one who wanted a woman to win!!! There is just no pleasing me 😉
So, does it really matter what their points were? Not really…probably. Shawn took a risk that put her at the bottom of the boards but I can’t imagine it will hurt her.
Here’s what went down.
Performing their choice of a season dance again:
Kelly was up first and danced her Paso again, which won her the most praise during the season. There was a slight flub where they missed grabbing hands but it was quickly passed by without hurting their timing. She has wanted a 10 all season long and she finally gets a 10 from Len and Bruno but a 9.5 from Carrie Ann. No problem because she couldn’t hear a thing after Len said “TEN!” It made her night. I was most excited that a bassoon was used in her musical selection and was featured prominently. NMD is excited for gymnasts; I’m excited for bassoons!
Melissa then dances her Samba, which did not get great points the first time around. They selected it because it was a dance they thought they could improve upon and receive a better score. They danced it for that reason and because they say it is so extremely different from their freestyle. It was well done and they get 10’s across the board.
Shawn selects her quickstep for the finale. This is risky since they only got a 26.5 for the dance, even thought it was flawless and spectacular. They received deductions because they broke holds and did lifts, which are not allowed in the quickstep. In practice they discuss changing it but decide to go for the crowd-pleasing version and know they will possibly be getting the deduction again. The judges all say it is fantastic, but they have to dock her for the lifts and broken holds. They receive at 27.
Freestyle, anything goes, dance:
Then it’s back to Kelly again for her freestyle. They do their version of the finale in Dirty Dancing with Kelly wearing a similar pink dress to the one worn in the movie. She starts by descending to the stage ala Cirque Du Soleil or Pink (take your pick!) in silk fabric doing some aerial maneuvers. It was very nicely done but she is being serenaded by Val playing the violin. Err…sounding off key to me, but very sweet. From there they pretty much go into the straight “Don’t put baby in a corner” and dance the dance step for step. However, it is lovely, she is light as air and once again, they get a 29.5. Perfect 30’s elude Kelly.
Melissa is next and again, channels Cirque with people in frame boxes hanging from the ceiling as Melissa and Tony dance on top of several platforms doing beautiful lifts. She is playing to her strength, which are the lifts. They are beautifully executed. The judges go crazy for it with Len saying he wished he had an 11 paddle. Tony looks like he died and went to heaven. He is almost the star as he is giddy that he is getting so close to that mirror ball, but….
…Shawn is next. In the break before commercial, we see the fantastic five with Shawn and Derek, with all of them looking lovely, but one, who is doing her infamous, ‘Not Impressed’ face. It was very funny. I’m not really sure how to even describe their dance, but again, it is well worth watching, as it is flawless and spectacular. I think I see signs of a few of their dances within it and when Len comments, he says they indeed included bits of all of their dances into their finale. The F5’s are on hoops over the stage in artistic, acrobatic poses. They descend and dance along side Shawn and Derek to end in a perfect pose at the front of the stage. It was all flawless, no one missed a step. The mirror ball belongs to Shawn. There is no way to compete with her gifts and perfection.
At the end of the night, Melissa has a perfect 60 out of 60, Kelly 59 and Shawn 57. My guess is it will end up being between Shawn and Kelly at the end because they probably have the strongest two fan bases. But from a talent perspective, it should come down to Melissa and Shawn with Shawn winning it all. Her and Derek are just flawless and immensely talented.
Tomorrow night they have one more dance to create and perform on the spot. It will either be a jive, cha cha or samba. They find out what they must dance tomorrow night and are given their music as well. This is never a deal breaker. They are typically given the same scores so the dance themselves don’t matter all that much, but it will be wonderful to see them dance one more time.
I actually liked watching Dancing with the Stars. Who knew?!
