It’s been leaked recently that former Xscape member Kandi Burruss has been slated as the replacement for DeShawn Snow on the next season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m really excited about this new season!
Kandi has a looooong history on the music scene in the ‘A.’ From her participation in the R&B singing group Xscape (which also included sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, as well as Burruss’ best friend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle)…to her high profile relationships with industry dudes, Kandi’s definitely no stranger to controversy.
She’ll fit into the ‘housewives’ gang quite well cause her name has been around these here parts for a minute.
It’s been said that she was the main reason behind the breakup of Xscape because her *cough* ‘relationship’ with the group’s producer, which happened to be Jermaine Dupri, was Continue Reading…
I told you guys the other day about how Kim Zolciak’s “webmaster” hijacked her website…well word is that her “webmaster” is actually Atlanta publicist, Jonathan Jaxson. You may remember Jaxson from his highly publicized legal fight against fellow blogger Perez Hilton. Jaxson is peeved at the Atlanta Housewife without a husband about her slacking payments and recently filed suit against her for breach of contract. Zolciak, in turn, filed her own lawsuit last week claiming that Jaxson hijacked her website and posted “negative and scurrilous information” about her on the site in retaliation.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge John Goger ordered Jaxson to take down what he wrote last week until the two sides mediate the issue:
As a result of the injunction, he has restored the site to what it looked like Feb. 20. Zolciak, in the lawsuit, blamed the “hijacking” for generating negative publicity “which has marginalized Ms. Zolciak’s public persona and is negatively impacting her commercial opportunities.”
Jeff Ward (Jaxon’s Buisness Parner) said the statement on the site was not scurrilous or defamatory; to him, it was factual. He said Jaxson signed on to be Zolciak’s publicist about the time of the popular Bravo show’s finale last fall. He said the two sides signed a $30,000 six-month contract for Jaxson to provide publicity services, including maintaining the Web site and getting her placement in various media outlets. He said he helped place her on the Bonnie Hunt Show, the E! Network and the Golden Globes red carpet.
Sheree Whitfield sat down recently to chop it up about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She took a moment to speak about her clothing line (She by Sheree) as well as dropped a few hints about who the NEW housewife will be this season. Sheree also addressed the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation stating that everyone needs to just stay out of it and surprisingly revealed that she’s also been a victim of domestic violence in the past.
Check out the video of my 2nd favorite housewife below:
Lisa Wu Hartwell is taking her ex-hubby, Keith Sweat back to court. The Atlanta Housewive (pictured above during a recent question/answer session at South Dekalb Mall) is seeking to gain full custody and child support for the two sons she shares with Sweat. Jordan Sweat (14) and Justin Sweat Jordan Sweat (11).
According court papers filed with the Superior Court of Fulton County, Sweat In 2003, Sweat received primary custody of the children in their final divorce decree. Sweat and Wu Hartwell married in 1992 and had what court papers called an “extremely tumultuous relationship.” Fulton Superior Court judge Cynthia D. Wright, wrote in the decree that “there is evidence that Father has been violent towards Mother, but no evidence he has ever been violent with any of his children.”
The judge granted Sweat full custody because she felt the children at the time “lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother’s numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town … Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother’s maturity and judgment.”
Lisa has since remarried and now wants her boys back. Wu Hartwell said nothing about the custody case on Saturday during her South Dekalb Mall appearance but she did note that her ex-husband didn’t clear her sons to be on the show. (Source)
Stay tuned…more drama to follow!
Check out a few more flix from Saturday’s Real Housewives of Atlanta appearance at South Dekalb:
Lisa Wu-Hartwell, NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield left their comfy confines of North Atlanta to make a trip over to the Eastside last weekend. The three Real Housewives of Atlanta paid a visit to Dekalb County’s South Dekalb Mall for a special panel discussion with host/moderator V-103’s Ryan Cameron.
The housewives event was orignally scheduled for 4:00pm Saturday but got a late start because all of the housewives had not arrived. By about 4:30pm Ryan finally took the stage and blamed Sheree as the late culprit. A crowd of about 200 fans cheered and screamed their names as they finally got started. Questions were prepared in advance, but the biggest revelation came when the trio announced that Season Two would finally begin filming on Monday (today).
Check out a few of the questions/answers addressed on the panel below: Continue Reading…
