PageSix.com:

Kenya Moore isn’t done with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” after all.

The pregnant reality star attended Cynthia Bailey’s party for Seagrams Escapes on Thursday night and was wearing a mic for the soirée, an insider told Page Six on Friday.

“She was not invited by producers,” the insider said. “She attended as a guest and may or may not appear in the final edit as her appearance did not impact the story.”

We’re told Bailey’s costars Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton, Eva Marcille, Shamari De Voe, Tanya Sam and Yovanna Logan were also in attendance.

Earlier this month Moore was spotted showing off her baby bump alongside Porsha Williams, who is also expecting her first child.

Moore, 47, exited the Bravo show in July over contract negotiations, an insider told Page Six at the time. She joined “RHOA” during its fifth season in 2012.

New Cast Photo for ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Doesn’t Have Kenya Moore In iT

17 Sep

AtlantaBlackStar.com:

Has the official cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” been revealed? A photo uploaded by the unofficial Instagram page of RHOA posted a photo showcasing what is believed to be the cast for season 11 of the popular Bravo reality TV series. The caption to the post read, “It’s OFFICIAL! Here’s your cast for season 11. Are y’all here for it? Eva, Tanya and Shamari join Nene, Kandi, Cynthia and Porsha for an interesting season!

Whether or not this is the official photo, fans were too distracted by the absence of cast member Kenya Moore.
 
“Where is Kenya!!!!!! Hell no”

“I know Kenya pregnant but I love to see her on the show “Twirl “ where you at?”

“No show without Kenya….Yawnnn lol”

Other fans commented about some issues they had with the promo altogether.

“I need to know why Kandi and Porsha are on the end??”

“I don’t like the picture. They need a do-over.”

“This is a mess…who the heck is that in the middle??? Why is Porsha in the corner?? oh hell nah!!!”

Fans’ inkling that the photo wasn’t the final product may have been on the money. Hours after the photo was released, NeNe Leakes made a statement on her IG page, “It SUCKS to have a LEAKED cast photo out there that doesn’t represent some of us in the best light! funny how this only happens with #RHOA cast! Just know that, this is NOT the OFFICIAL cast photo! Soon come #RHOA @bravotv”

Lisa Wu Is Still Friends With Some of Her Former ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Co-Stars

30 Apr

LifeandStylemag.com:

Can you believe it’s been nearly 10 years since Lisa Wu left Real Housewives of Atlanta? The 47-year-old mother of three — Justin Sweat, Jordan Sweat, Edgerton Hartwell, Jr. — disassociated from the series in 2009, citing that she parted “amicably” due to “creative differences” with the Real Housewives producers. But thanks to Bravo running a marathon of the first few seasons recently, Lisa Wu has entered fans’ minds once again, and everyone is wondering what Lisa has been up to since she left the show.

Lisa’s departure wasn’t without its scandalous rumors (as Housewives departures nearly always are). Wet Paint reported that Lisa decided not to return in Season 3 because she wasn’t happy with how much producers were attempting to “script” her storyline.

So what’s up with Lisa these days? According to the former reality star’s Instagram bio, a lot. She lists “a lil’ bit of acting, producing, writing…and brokering to sell [you] a house in between,” her account promises. She also lists a website on her Instagram — however, the link leads to a defunct page.

During Lisa’s seasons of RHOA, fans saw the mom running multiple businesses — jewelry, a baby clothing line, and an adult clothing line — as well as a real estate company on the side. Now, each of those businesses has unfortunately dissolved, though Lisa still dabbles in real estate. At the time of the series, Lisa was also married to NFL player Ed Hartwell, but that marriage has since ended. The former couple split up back in 2011, and their divorce was finalized in 2012.

But don’t think that Lisa’s leaving RHOA has affected her relationships with the girls from the show. Lisa is still tight with bestie NeNe Leaks, Kandi Burruss, and Porsha Williams. In fact, Lisa was present for NeNe Leaks’ 2013 nuptials, even making a brief re-appearance on Bravo for I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding. Other than those brief appearancs, Lisa has also been busy with other projects. In 2010, Lisa co-authored a book When the Cake Was Made. She’s also made acting appearances in The Internship and Meet the Browns.

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann Finally Come Face-to-Face at ‘RHOA’ Season 10 Reunion

31 Mar

BravoTV.com:

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann have provided so many unforgettable moments during The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunions over the years. Need we remind you of “Close your legs to married men”? Well, this season will definitely be no exception. 

After all of the tension that has boiled up between them in Season 10 of RHOA, especially Roachgate, the two Georgia Peaches will finally come (literally) face-to-face to hash out their issues at this season’s reunion. And as you can see from the sneak peek of the reunion above, it should go about as well as any of us expected. 

Cynthia Bailey teased NeNe and Kim’s confrontation at the reunion during a recent interview with Us Weekly. “Kim tried to tear her down. It got so crazy!” she shared. “I’d be shocked to see them become friends again.”

That’s not the only drama we’ll see when the three-part RHOA reunion kicks off on Sunday, April 8 at 8/7c. And it looks like it’s enough to cause Eva Marcille to have her baby right there and then. “I need them to calm down so I do not have a reunion baby,” Eva joked.

EOnline.com:

It’s about to go down.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta finally embark on their big Barcelona trip in this week’s new episode of the Bravo reality hit, now that the small matter of who’s coming has been sorted. (Out? Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kenya Moore. In? FOH’s Eva MarcilleShamea Morton and Marlo Hampton.) And like most trips abroad in this franchise, it sounds like those poor Spaniards had no idea what was coming there way once our favorite Southern belles touched down.

“Barcelona is crazy. For many, many different reasons that everybody will see. But it was a great experience,” Porsha Williams told E! News. “You’ll definitely see us having a good time. You’ll definitely see us acting up. You’ll definitely see us acting out of character, OK? In kinky ways and in fun ways. And in naughty ways.”

As Porsha revealed, fans can look forward to some battle lines being drawn in the Spanish sand, especially when it comes to her fraught relationships with NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss. “I feel like with this trip, there are definitely lines drawn. So either we’re not going to be cool again—I, for myself, when I left the trip, I had made a decision,” she told us. “This relationship is where it’s going to be and I’m done with it or this relationship, I’m going to move forward. Whereas before, they were kind of in limbo. But when I leave this trip, I know pretty much where I stand with most people.”

The good news? “The one good thing is that one of the relationships, actually, kind of comes together,” she admitted.

Kim Zolciak’s ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Co-Stars Reportedly Want Her Fired

3 Feb

Inquisitr.com:

Kim Zolciak may be on the verge of getting fired from her part-time role on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to a new report, Kim Zolciak’s Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars, including longtime nemesis NeNe Leakes, former friend Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore, are unhappy with Zolciak’s Season 10 return to the show and hope to see her let go before filming begins on the series’ upcoming 11th season.

“Basically, the other women don’t want her to return next season, ” an insider told In Touch Weekly magazine, according to a report by All About the Real Housewives on February 2. “They’ve had it with Kim’s outlandish behavior.”

In addition to Kim Zolciak’s co-stars’ alleged issues with her behavior, Bravo TV is also reportedly unhappy and feels they may have made a mistake hiring her back last year. So, as they prepare for the show’s 11th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta later this year, the network is reportedly discussing the possibility of leaving Zolciak off of the cast.

Even fans of the Bravo TV reality series have allegedly made it clear that they don’t like seeing Kim Zolciak back on the show and feel she hasn’t added anything worth watching to the series.
