I just found out from a HIGHLY credible source that Marlo Hampton will NOT (I repeat) WILL NOT
be added to the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
You read it here first that Marlo was going to be a new edition to the RHOA cast and she was often seen taping with the ladies over the summer.
Marlo even traveled with the ladies on their South African get-away, so we all just KNEW she was made in the shade. Even the AJC fell for it…

But as I said in my first post, no papers had been signed so Marlo was merely being tested and apparently she failed… miserably!
Marlo may tell you differently (she’s been telling everyone she talks to that she’s a Real Housewife of Atlanta) BUT rewind… pause… backup!
Since I never want to be accused of spreading the wrong information, I want to be the first to set the record straight about Marlo Hampton!

Attorney Phaedra Parks
of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her adorable hubby Apollo Nida were spotted all boo’d up last week at Interscope’s swanky ‘An Evening of Luxury’.
The 6th annual event coincided with the BET Hip-Hop Awards weekend and other attendees included Memphitz & Toya, Carlysia Levert (daughter of the late Gerald Levert), SoSo Def’s Dondria, Tiffany Evans and more.
It’s not secret that Phaedra and Apollo are my favorite RHOA couple. I was rooting for a P&A spin-off but I guess Kim, NeNe and ‘nem have reality show seniority over the high powered entertainment attorney/funeral parlor entrepreneur.
You may have heard by now that the newly engaged Kim Zolciak has her own show (that’s already in production), Kandi Burruss has her own show (where she’ll be making more one hit wonders), and NeNe Leakes was granted her own show too (that starts taping soon).
That leaves Phaedra, Sheree & Cynthia (and Marlo) to all fend for themselves and I vote that they recruit a few new “housewives” for the show. Ya know… to add some more fresh faces to the crew.
Who would you nominate to be a replacement Atlanta “housewife”?
[Sidebar: Tameka Foster Glover Raymond gets my vote!]

Who didn’t see this coming? (raises hand)
30 something Kim Zolciak and her 26 year old baller boo Falcons player Kroy Biermann are the proud parents of a 4 month old son, Kroy, jr. and now the two are officially engaged.
The two met a little over a year ago during Sheree Whitfield’s dancing for dollars fundraiser and Kim promptly sunk her hooks into her boy toy by getting knocked up within weeks of their meeting (WEEKS! Kim wasn’t playing!).
What’s that saying again? ‘First comes baby, then comes love, then comes baby daddy with a wedding ring?’
Well Kroy finally popped the question recently and Zolciak notified the world via the social networking site Twitter:
Looks like the town jumpoff may turn into a “housewife” after all! (I kidd…)
As I revealed months ago, Kim will be featured on her own RHOA spin-off show that will focus on her new life with Kroy and the baby so the timing of this “engagement” was clearly well thought out…. Continue Reading…
If you read StraightFromTheA
on the regular, you already have the heads up on just about everything concerning The Real Housewives of Atlanta
but my friends over at Wetpaint
recenlty caught up with real “Housewife” Cynthia Bailey
, who gave a few details on the new season as she hit Atlantic City, NJ with the Real Housewives live tour.
The newly wedded discussed her The Bailey Agency, her “school of fashion” and how viewers will get to see the “whole story” of the development of her new venture, “from beginning to end.”

Baily revealed a few key details about the highly anticipated season and says assures everyone that it’s gonna be good. She specifically states that it may just be the “best season ever.”
Cynthia will be shown adjusting to married life with entrepreneur Peter Thomas and the drama heats up.
She and Peter celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary with a lavish ceremony and things appear to be going well between the two. However, I personally predict that Bravo will zone in on Peter’s Summer legal issues to create a focal point of contention between Bailey and her sisters.
But wait… there’s more! Continue Reading…
If you’re on the social networking site twitter, you may have noticed NeNe Leakes has now given herself the title of “independent business woman” after she recently revealed that she’ll be opening up a few fast food restaurants.
In my opinion, there’s nothing really newsworthy her new business venture. Hell… if you make money, you’re SUPPOSED to invest. That’s a given.
So moving on….
I told you late last year that Kim Zolciak would be getting a spin-off focusing on her new life with boy toy/baby daddy Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann and their newborn son, KJ. And just last week it was announced that Kandi Burruss had also gotten the greenlight for her new show (click HERE if you missed that).
Well… what’s bigger than NeNe opening a chain of fast food pizza joints, you ask? Well, I heard that NeNe is up next to get her own show!! *gasp*
The day we all dreaded has finally come! (Remember where you heard this first!)
Details below… Continue Reading…
I ran into Real “Housewife” of Atlanta Kandi Burruss during last night’s ASCAP legends dinner where she happened to be on of the event’s honorees.
That post is coming a bit later, but I wanted to be the amongst the first to tell y’all about Kandi’s brand NEW TELEVISION SHOW!!
Kandi’s not only a major force in the music industry, she’s “Real” Housewifes of Atlanta, has a popular online sex talk show, AND has her own line of sex toys. There’s no stopping this one!
