Nene Leakes Debuts A Madame in Cinderella on Broadway!

RHOA Nene cinderellla

“Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name! The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to Thank this morning. You might get tired of me today because I will be posting lots of pictures of last Nite. I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this!” ~Nene Leakes

That is Nene Leakes this morning after  her Broadway debut on Tuesday night as Madame in Cinderella. It looks like we have had some misconceptions about the size of the role of Madame. It appears to be the third largest role in the entire play. According to Nene, it has the most lines of any other character. Keke Palmer and Nene Leakes both had their name up on the sign, while I get that both are new, the guy who has been playing the prince did not have his name up. I am getting the feeling that this is an even bigger deal that I originally thought. It sounds like Nene was a huge hit!

So major props to Nene on getting through her first performance and being well received by the sold out crowd! Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Talks About Her Meeting With Porsha, Kandi and Phaedra Weigh In

RHOA Cynthia 102114


Cynthia weighs in on the drama between Porsha and her this week. Then Kandi and Phaedra add their two cents.

Cynthia says:

Drama or no drama, the one thing I respect most about the ladies is their business savvy. I enjoy surrounding myself with strong, smart, business-minded women. Like some of the other ladies, I am a self-made woman. My career history and accolades speak for themselves. This was and continues to be accomplished through hard work and remaining fearless.  With that said, I felt it was in bad taste and another poor judgment call for Porsha to make fun of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, especially since I have supported her single and hair business when called upon. The Bailey Agency empowers and inspires young talent to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams.   

I have known Porsha for a couple of years now, and we have never had any real issues until this last reunion. To my knowledge our only issue is I did not support her actions at the reunion. I have always made it clear that the reunion is a provocative environment for everyone involved. I adamantly did not support her choice to resort to physical violence, and I never will. Shortly after, she did WWHL, and claimed that I supported her actions and then I didn’t support her actions. I do not support physical violence. Period! I thought this was clear out the gate during the reunion, when I did not jump off the couch to run to her side.  Continue reading

Claudia Jordan Shares Fun Times And Hard Times

Claudia’s Bravo blog included a link to the hysterical video above. It’s Kenya and Claudia in a Karaoke Bar in LA a few years back. Those two are  such jokesters.  She also shares some very personal after the page jump. You and Kenya have known each other for years – what’s the funniest/craziest thing you guys have done together?
Claudia Jordan: Hmm, I’d have to say the funniest thing we’ve done together was when for her birthday we went to a karaoke bar and performed “Nasty Girls.” Of course I was terrible, because I’m Rhythmless Nation over here, but Kenya was pretty good. I mean she’s no Mariah in the voice department, but what I like about her is she commits to the bit. It was fun! Underneath it all I’m just a big goofy kid at heart! Continue reading

Kenya Moore Has Some “THOTs” on “A Woman’s Virtue”

Team Pretty

Team Pretty

This week on Kenya’s blog she had a few choice words for Nene and Porsha’s trash talking this week.


I have been respectfully employed since the age of 14, managing to stay off a pole and out of jail. Therefore, for 20 plus years I have been around the block working. NeNe cannot say the same. I will no longer tolerate the thinly veiled insults aimed at my virtue as a woman. Several seasons ago, NeNe blatantly flirted with Peter and was greatly criticized. However, no one took her seriously because of the way she looks. Clearly, she’s not a threat to anyone’s marriage. Lucky for her. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Way Too Much Brandi

RHobh Cast

I can already tell this episode is going to have too much Brandi.

Brandi and Kim are besties on this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills it seems. Brandi tells Kim about running into Adrienne. Kim thinks that Brandi has grown as a person. At least that is what she is calling not having another other choice of filming buddies. Brandi has not just been dumped by five landlords in five years, she’s also been dumped by JR who decided the chick he cheated on her with is preferable. She is not going to go with out a fight though.

Lisa Vanderpump is getting a new shirt tailor made for her. It’s just and excuse to see her closet, really. We are focusing on the help this episode it seems. Lisa employs servants as a act of compassion for them. She’s nice like that. She also has decided to allow Kyle and Yolanda to share her airspace from time to time.  Lisa tells Ken she has no desire to reunite with Brandi. Continue reading

Jodi Arias11/25 Afternoon Recap: The End Of Slime Highway

Jodi Arias Juan 1125

If you missed this mornings recap, go here.

After burritos everyone got back in the car. I’ll spare you the details but the smell is horrendous and I wanted to roll down the window but Juan has the child locks on and won’t let me.

“So was Jodi a master manipulator  because she didn’t discuss her sex life? Or just Travis?”

“Stop putting words in my mouth, Juan. I didn’t say that Travis was a master manipulator!” Ut oh. Don’t make Juan pull this car over and have the morning testimony read back to you. “I said he was a master of deception.” Oh. We’re going to play potato, potahto. I guess it’s better than talking about Jodi’s lady garden.

“According to your code of ethics you are supposed to be informed and objective. You are not informed are you? You are not objective, are You?”

“I use data points to be objective.” Continue reading

Vanderpump Rules Recap: Jax Nose Best, Peter’s Nose is Up Stassi’s Ass

Pump Rules Full Cast

I’m sort of looking forward to recapping the episode of that show where all the men are gay and everyone, including their girlfriends, pretend not to notice. Because all of the trial and news junkie stuff is getting old fast. So the two Toms and Jax are off to the salon for mani/pedis and eyebrow threading as hetero males often do with their buddies. Gay Tom has very specific directions for his threading lady.

Ariana tells Stassi about Kristen coming over to get the cable box. Because this is the Kristen show. If I drank every time someone said Kristen I’d be drunk before the first commercial break. Stassi says that Kristen is terrorizing Ariana. Stassi says if she was still running SUR she would not allow it. Sorry Stassi. It’s Kristen’s restaurant and you are just there eating her goat balls.

Tom Schwartz “had a panic attack” and walked off the job at SUR on opening night after 30 minutes. Katie points out that even Jax can bartend. Katie says that Schwartz has embarrassed her. Katie says his lack of work ethic is an issue.

Jax gets his nose job. He really did need one. We are in the operating room. I DO NOT NEED TO SEE THAT. No, mam. Jax is so high on the anesthesia he is talking crazy. He fondles the nurse and tells her he loves her. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Morning Recap 11/25 Back on the Slime Highway


This morning we all woke up at Howard Johnson’s Motor Lodge and everyone is in a bad mood. We got zero sleep arguing about the situation in Ferguson and watching the No True Bill announcement. Martinez called the prosecutor a pussy all night and said he would just have thrown the case out and dared anyone to lay a finger on Queen’s Royal Touch Salon & Spa. Nurmi just sat there screaming OBJECTION! the TV all night. So nobody is in the mood for this today. The slogan may be, “Go Happy, Go HoJos” but happy is not what we are. I have a new book today. It’s another Augusten Burroughs book but it’s Christmasy. It’s called You Better Not Cry. I think it will be appropriate for this ride down the Slime Highway.

We begin of course with genital waxing. Because once you are on the Slime Highway it seems normal. As if every trip should begin with no hello or morning greeting whatsoever to the elderly shrink sitting in the passenger seat bleary eyed. One should just start right off with genital waxing questions.

“You sure had a lot to say about Jodi’s shaved beaver. You didn’t put much stock in the journal entries you Jodi’s freshly waxed pussy was important to you, right”

“Good Morning, Juan. Does this hell hole have Starbucks? I could really use a Starbucks before we, delve into Jodi’s well used (and groomed) vagina. Um. So to speak.” Continue reading

Grand Jury in Ferguson Is About to Come Down Rumor Is: No Bill To Indict

The Grand Jury results should be announced within the next twenty-five minutes. My understanding is it will happen at 9 pm EST.  Because that’s a great time to give an announcement. It gives all the nut jobs time to prepare and act in the cloak of darkness. Anonymous is already on the ground and tweeting about the KKK being on the ground in Ferguson. Ben Crump has been saying all day that the family has been disrespected which makes “the killing of their unarmed child” even more egregious.  FBI and National Guard has been called in to Missouri. State Patrols have been activated in many states and are in major cities.  Peaceful protests are scheduled in major cities for tomorrow. We have threats to the state capitol and “protests” planned for Underground Atlanta tomorrow night. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Afternoon Session 11/24 Part II of Scenic Drive Down Slime Highway

Jodi never fails to turn to photog for her close up 11/24

Jodi never fails to turn to photog for her close up 11/24


Okay. I got really bored trying to make heads or tails of this so I went a little off the deep end. Sorry. It was basically a whole lot of back and forth about anal sex and such between Juan and Dr. Forseca. That’s the short version. The following version is sort of like bad fan fiction or something. Feel free to skip it.

We return, after a stop off at Stuckey’s where I stocked up on enough pecan logs and pralines and Co-Colas to make it to our evening destination , to the Slime Highway. I may need extra restroom stops along the way.

Juan is in the driver’s seat yelling at Dr. Forseca who is strapped into the passenger seat and I am in the back laying down slurping co-cola and woofing down pecan logs and reading Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs because I think the novel pairs nicely with this part of the freakshow.

Juan is telling Forseca that Jodi is a whore who got some guys phone number at the funeral for Travis! Forseca says, “I got some guy’s number last night. He’s a business associate. I was not shaving my privates and texting him that I wanted him to bang me like a horny school girl, Juan. I asked him if he knew a good tax accountant, preferably Jewish. Don’t get your spidey undies in a twist Juan.!”

Oh crap! Donavan is in the back of the station wagon facing the rear. I wondered what that smell was.

Juan is upset with Forseca. So upset he is recalling other women he has road tripped with, namely, Alyce LaViolette.  Oh yes! How time makes men forget the bad times and remember the good times because Juan is saying that Alyce said that Jodi used men.

Juan screams, “Alyce really knew what she was talking about Forseca!”

“Well, Juan, I don’t see it that way. Those were Alyce’s findings not mine! ” Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Recap for Monday 11/24: Driving Down Slime Highway

This photo of Jodi on Friday seemed to upset her. Awww...

This photo of Jodi on Friday seemed to upset her. Awww…

Things ran a bit behind this morning as the usual morning band of criminals took a little bit longer to finish up. Then Nurmi gets up and has a hissy fit again over the media in the room during a public trial. This time is problem is that the news pool photographer chosen to take photos for all media outlets, Tom Tingle took a couple of photos of Jodi in her prison attire at the defense table. Last Friday’s ridiculous events were not part of the sentencing case presided over by the jury so they were not in the courtroom. Jodi is only allowed to wear real clothes when the jury is there. Jodi doesn’t like for us to see her prison look, so today Nurmi wasted a bunch of time arguing that the media should be thrown out because the still photog took a picture of Jodi that invaded her conversation with her attorneys. Clearly, my friend Nurmi doesn’t understand that the video camera cannot record Jodi and her attorney speaking, but that you can’t read lips from a still shot. Judge Stephens denies the motion.

Jury is seated.

Judge Stephens announces that due to a jury scheduling issue there will be no court next week on December 1 or 4. So that gives us a shot at Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. She says the trial will probably last into 2015. Because, Arizona Continue reading
