I am not sure I can get through this ratchet show. I really hate this show. Sherri Shepherd is a co-host. I hate her wig line. It’s only slightly better hair than Nene’s ramen noodles. I’m surprised that Sherri is on the show at this time since the surrogate who carried her baby was just interviewed on a night time tabloid show. Apparently, since Sherri didn’t claim the baby the put the surrogate’s name on the birth certificate as the mother. She claims she will be asked for child support. I don’t know how much of that I believe. But with all of that in the news, she should probably lay low.
Kandi comes out looking cute and spins some ridiculous wheel to answer a question. Hers lands on “biggest pet peeve.” Kandi says it drives her insane when people call her Candace. People assume that Kandi is short for Candace and it’s not. Continue reading
I keep watching to blog about The View but I really don’t think too many of you are watching it. I quit watching morning shows for awhile, and then I started taping a few of them to zip through in the morning in case anyone interesting is on. I started tuning back in to The View this season, and it’s been pretty horrible. Somehow the fact that it is trainwreck is making me want to tune in. Lately, I tune in to see who is actually going to show up to work.
Let’s review. On the new season, we got rid of Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, and added Nicolle Wallace, Rosie O’Donnell and Rosie Perez. This means we have Whoopi, Nicolle, and the two Rosies. I don’t think all four of them have been on at the same time for a full dozen shows. It’s been a last minute search for hosts pretty much every day. Mario Catone has hosted more consistently than pretty much anyone except Rosie O’Donnell who seems to always manage to show up for work. Rumors abound. Let’s break them down one by one.

I am pissed that Andy tacked this on to the show AGAIN so that Good Wife won’t record when I already had it recording in its normal timeslot. So annoying. I decided to go ahead and watch it now because I love Kenya and Sherri and I hope the throw some shade at Nene because I don’t think Sherri likes her either.
OMG Kenya’s dress is very dramatic! That is BEYOND a plunging neckline. For some reason, Zach and Cody from Big Brother 16 are the bartenders tonight. I would point out why but I already have the Jews in an uproar in another comment section. So let’s go with they just got lucky, shall we? Zach says he a Frankie are best friends.
Wow I was wrong about Sherri and Kenya having common ground. Andy brings up the assault on Kenya at the reunion. He talks about Kandi’s comments on the show. Then Sherri says that all of the women on The View, she lists herself and Whoopi and all of them as a collection. She says they are all black women. I imagine Jenni McCarthy and whoever else was on the show at that time will be shocked to know they are black. Kenya says that Sherri’s position is that if someone is irritating you it is okay for you to assault them. She will never agree with that thought process. Sherri says, “How about don’t be irritating?” And Kenya kindly points out that is what happens at the reunion. She was irritated that Phaedra kept calling her a whore. She was irritated when groups of them ganged up on her. But she did not assault anyone. By the way, Kenya is trained in one of the martial arts and could quite easily defend herself if she had chosen to do so.
Andy plays a long clip of Nene’s odd antics from last week’s WWHL. I totally missed the part where she said that half the girls went to see Sherri in her Broadway performance instead of waiting to see Nene. That’s hysterical. Kenya came for opening night and Phaedra came another night. She probably took Ayden when she was in New York right after the Ellen Show. Continue reading

It looks like we are going to keep making RHOA a success. I blame you people for this news.
NEW YORK – November 11, 2014 – Bravo Media delivers record ratings as “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” earned the network’s highest-rated season premiere ever with over 3.8 million total viewers and over 2.2 million P18-49, according to Nielsen. Additionally, the episode marked double-digit growth, up 23 percent among total viewers and 24 percent among P18-49 from the prior season premiere (11/3/13). Driven by Sunday night’s season seven premiere, Bravo was the #1 cable network during the 8pm hour among all key demos. Immediately following at 9pm, “Watch What Happens Live,” hosted by Andy Cohen with guest NeNe Leakes, delivered 2.6 million total viewers and 1.4 million P18-49. (Because they piggy backed it onto RHOA! FAKE NUMBERS!)
Bravo was the #1 most social reality network in prime with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” being the #1 most social reality program of the night with 171,000 tweets. This marked Bravo’s most social season premiere since Nielsen SocialGuide began tracking social activity in October 2011.
The New York Daily News has thrown some serious shade on Nene Leakes! Late last night well after I felt like giving this news story my full attention, the New York Daily News posted a very interesting post about Nene’s upcoming role in Cinderella. Let’s take a look, shall we?
TV and fashion dynamo NeNe Leakes doesn’t debut for two weeks in “Cinderella,” but she has already put together a starry guest list.
“Kim Kardashian is coming to see me, and she’s bringing North,” says Leakes. “Real Housewives of New Jersey” table-flipper Teresa Giudice will be in the audience, too, before going to the Big House on fraud charges. “Teresa’s bringing her daughters,” Leakes adds. “More celebrities will come. I’m sure.” Continue reading
Not only has Nene Leakes landed the role of the evil stepmother in a Broadway production of Cinderella, a new report says that she will make an appearance on the final season of Glee! According to The Wrap, Nene will return for at least one episode to reprise her role as Roz who has been both a synchronized swim coach and cheerleading squad leader on the long running series.
Nene, who is a special pet of Ryan producer , was also cast on his show The New Normal which was cancelled after one season. It seems like I read ions ago she had one episode left on her Glee contract. If I had to make a guess based on absolutely no information, I’d bet my money that she will appear on the final episode when many of the former actors on the show will make a final return.

This is something I did not see coming. When Nene Leakes and Sherri Shepherd were both rumored to be up for the same part in the Broadway production of Cinderella, the initial rumors were they were angling for the part of the fairy godmother. In that story, to me the most important point was that Nene was so butthurt over comments made by Wendy Williams she was finger-painting “Wendell” on pocket books with nail polish.
As it turns out, both Sherri Shepherd and Nene Leakes have gotten the part of Cinderella’s mother to be played across from Keke Palmer. Cinderella has been on Broadway since January of 2013 with a predominantly white cast. That will all change next Tuesday when Sherri Shepherd and Keke Palmer take over the roles of on September 9th. Shepherd will be the first African-American woman to play the evil stepmother on Broadway. She will play the role through November 22. Nene Leakes will take on the role on November 25th presumably playing the role until the curtain falls for the last time January 3, 2015. Continue reading
Things in the divorce between Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally continue to get worse by the minute. Back in May, when I first reported on their divorce, Sherri’s camp seemed to indicate that Sal was not working and had not worked for the entire marriage and Sherri was on him to get a damn job. At that time I found it odd that Sal was the one who had left their NJ home and gone back to L.A. to file for divorce. He also filed for custody of an unborn child we found out about that the couple was having through a surrogate.
Then a week later, it hit the Internet that her first husband, Jeffery Tarpley, had gone to court asking for an emergency modification of his custody agreement regarding his son, before Sal had filed his case. The judge did not grant an emergency hearing but instead set one to happen sometime this month. Tarpley said that Sherri was working too much, and leaving Jeffery with unqualified nannies and it was affecting his developmental skills. Also, it was interfering with his ability to see his son.
Now TMZ is reporting even more shocking allegations from all sides. You may need a drink for this. As you recall, Sherri had a difficult pregnancy with Jeffery and he was born premature which caused him to have some congenital issues regarding his development. So, “they” decided to use a surrogate. Continue reading

Sherri Has Removed Her Wedding Ring
Sadly, Sherri Shepherd’s relationship woes and custody issues continue to escalate as TMZ is reporting today that not only is her current estranged husband, Sal suing her for custody of their unborn baby, but her ex-husband is also suing for full custody of their son Jeffrey. The bombshell of the story is that her ex-husband Jeff Tarpley filed for custody of Jeffery BEFORE either Sal or Sherri filed any paperwork, according to TMZ. This does not bode well for Sherri.
That said, the reasons that Jeff Tarpley lists as needing an emergency modification of their custody agreement seem a bit flimsy. Jeffrey was a premature baby who had to fight for his life when he was born. I am not aware of his specific special needs but Sherri has spoken about them on many occasions. He has overcome so many odds to develop into the kid he is today. It is unfair of his father to suggest that Sherri is a bad mother because as his paperwork suggests Jeffrey “can’t tie his shoes” or reads “at the second grade level.” Children with learning disabilities to not progress at the same rate as other kids. There are plenty of 9-year-olds who read at the second grade level that do not have his congenital issues. He also suggests that his hygiene skills are lacking. Perhaps there is more too it than that, but having taught 9-year-old boys, I can tell you that a lot of them have poor hygiene. It’s called being a nine-year-old boy. His case is best made by pointing out that Sherri works a lot and according to him leaves him with “unqualified nannies.” Continue reading
It took me a while to warm up to Sherri Shepherd when she first came on The View. But during her tenure there, she has grown up a lot. She even understands the earth is round now. She’s endeared herself to me with her reality gossip updates and because of her BFF, comedian Bone Hampton, who I got to know on Twitter when I first started blogging. I try to keep my distance from the people I blog about because it just makes it easier for me to be objective. The situation with Sherri is so personal, it feels weird to even blog about it. So I am going to ask that your comments be respectful on this post.
I’ve been reading the rumors for days and they are varied and mostly wrong I imagine. On site said that Sherri was divorcing Sal because he has not worked since the marriage. I found that hard to believe. I know that Sal was very close to her son and I think Sherri would probably put up with a lot before taking the father figure out of her son’s life. I don’t know what is going on for sure but it must be bad. Continue reading
