Everyone wants to know what’s up with DeShawn Snow. Y’ll remember her don’t you? The only true “housewife” featured on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, who just happened to be booted off of the show because she was too well adjusted (i.e. boring). Well, DeShawn is still pursuing her path to righteousness by obtaining her Masters of Divinity degree. She’s still managing her foundation and has also started writing her own sermons. Loyal reader KRSWon sent over her most recent piece yesterday called Turning Your Trials into Triumps. Here’s a sample below:
Whatever situation you are in, you are equipped to handle it. God would not allow you to be in something that you cannot handle. According to the Bible, you have the ability to turn your defeat into victory and your trial into triumph. Instead of being a victim, you can become a victor (James 1:2-8).
When you face the trials of life, you should evaluate them in the light of what God is doing for you. Therefore when trials come, you should immediately give thanks to the Lord and adopt a joyful attitude. It may not be easy to do, but just look at your trials through the eyes of faith.
Outlook determines outcome and attitude determines action. (Read More)
The new season hasn’t even started yet and I already miss DeShawn. I’m sure Kandi Burress will be an exciting replacement but DeShawn added a bit of balance to all the craziness that may be lacking next season. Y’all just watch. DeShawn’s gonna end up with her own show on The Bible Network and she’ll be saving souls while the other “housewives” are still talking ish and losing their properties! With God on your side who can be against you?!?
I attended a party over the weekend that was supposed to be Sheree´Whitfield’s “Brand New Me” divorce party. As it turns out, her ex-hubby, Bob Whitfield, ended up being the guest of honor! The drama started days before the soiree when Sheree´s people began sending emails to the invited guests stating the following:
Please be advised that the Official ShereeWhitfield Divorce Party has been postponed indefinitely. Any party being promoted as such is not associated with either Ms. ShereeWhitfield, nor with the Bravo Television Network. We apologize for any inconvenience, and do appreciate all of your willingness to support and attend. Thank you.
Not 10 minutes later, I received a phone call that the party was still on but apparently word was out that Sheree had been “banned” from her own party. Sources say that although that’s the word Bravo wants on the street, the truth is that she fell out with the event planners and simply said “eff it” to the bash. For some reason, she didn’t think the party planners could pull it off and didn’t want to be involved in a “star-studded” affair with no stars.
I’m with you Sheree’!
The party went off as planned, but it was like any other weekend A-Town bash. Now, don’t get me wrong…the rented mansion, the half naked men and the free food and liquor gave it a thumbs up for me. I had a helluva good time chillin at the bar with Frankie, but star-studded? I think not..
I caught up with NeNe Leakes and Sheree´ Whitfield last weekend at Niecy Nash’s Birthday Bash. We chopped it up a bit about hatin “A”zzz blogs and bloggers and when confronted, I was almost as quick to back down as Keri Hilson! Seriously though, I really like the Atlanta Housewives and wish them all success. Their real life problems prove that they’re just as prone to regular everyday bullsh*t as the rest of us, the only difference being…theirs is on front street while yours is still a family secret.
I told NeNe that all press is good press and I meant it. If they ain’t talkin bout you it means you ain’t worth talkin bout….so keep that good gossip coming! 😆
As I was perusing photos of the Atlanta Housewives the other day, I ran across this picture of the blonde “wiggy” one sporting a finger tatt. Hmmmm….I wonder how his real wife feels to know that her husband is literally wrapped around another woman’s finger?
If my eyes aren’t deceiving me, I think that tatt says “Lee.” Well, there’s really no need to guess. I’m confident you already know….but check under the cut for validation and a Derek J blonde synthetic wiggy moment in time:
Actress/Comedienne Niecy Nash‘s celebrity filled birthday bash was held at celebrity photographer Derek Blanks‘ studio Saturday night. Niecy, star of Comedy Central’s “Reno 911” and host of The Style Network’s “Clean House” was all aglow as she showed off her svelte new figure with silver sequins. Niecy lost a ton of weight while on Jenny Craig and I think she’s still one of the spokespersons for they were one of the sponsors of the party.
The Atlanta housewives stopped through and totally stole Niecy’s thunder, all the while keeping the guests more than entertained. NeNe told me she hated bloggers before realizing I was one but I think we kinda bonded after she, Sheree and I had a conversation about how they feel bloggers hate on them all the time and only write negative things. I immediately took offense and explained how all press is good press and told them to stand strong in knowing that we (or I since I can only speak for myself) only write about things I care about. So there! My new BFF NeNe’s response? “Keep on hating and keep on blogging!” Celebrity hairstylist Derek J even managed to jump down my throat for asking him to tell the readers who he was (on camera).. I LOVE HIM! 😆
Anyway…everyone knows that The Real Housewives without husbands of Atlanta is my sh*t and I would never say cruel things about them. *cough* [Help! I’m choking.] Moving on….Kim Zolciak came through for about half a second and walked the red carpet before fleeing out the front door (as if we cared)..and before you ask…there was no sign of new housewife Kandi Buress.
