Sunday evening, part 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s reunion show kicked off. The dramatics, including a fan (that has it’s own twitter handle), name calling and eye rolling, kept most of our attention for 60 minutes. But the best part, for me, is always whats happening in the background.
It was two parties in one for Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss. Over the weekend, the singer/reality star celebrated her new BRAVO spin-off ‘The Kandi Factory’ and her latest cover on Upscale. Held at Atlanta’s Aurum club, attendees saw the first episode. We spotted Love & Hip Hop of Atlanta’s Rasheeda, singer Sevyn Streeter, Big Rich Atlanta’s Khadijah, Ne-Yo’s fiance Monyetta Shaw (who just released a new children’s book), actress Nadine Ellis, former reality star, Chanita Foster, R&B Diva’s Nicci Gilbert, blogger Funky Dineva and Kandi’s fiance, Todd Tucker.
Welp, season 5 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta went out with a bang. Adding two new cast members (Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore) proved to be just the perfect recipe for more entertainment and drama. In fact, the two freshest faces brought the most attention on AND off camera–with an alleged fake relationship (to Walter Jackson) and a crumbling marriage (ie Kordell Stewart), this season came out fair in the ratings department.
If you are a devout fashionista (like myself), you know that this fashion season has been all about different types of prints and patterns. From leopard to stripes to mixed prints, many of our beloved celebrities have been taking a note from the runway and putting a little high fashion pattern personality in their wardrobe. My favorite down-to-earth actress Taraji P. Henson looked sultry in a pair of red and pink leopard print trousers from the Kenzo Spring Collection.
This thing got real ugly, real fast. This week, we shared the surprising news that after 10 years, syndicated radio personality, Michael Baisden was calling it quits. Initially, the details remained fuzzy, as he hinted on his facebook page, the day before he said his final ‘farewell’, that he would no longer be on radio. The day before his departure, he shared a warm, fuzzy and semi-vague announcement. But a day later, things must have heated up and all hell broke loose at the station. The 49-year-old radio Chicago native shared his account of what happened on his Facebook page. He wrote:
The Michael Baisden Show Staff has been “Locked Out” of Cumulus Studios…really Cumulus? In the words of Rodney King, “Can’t we all get along?” Just because we couldn’t come to an agreement is no reason to deprive the listeners, affiliates, and advertisers of only 9 days to say goodbye and show our appreciation.
